LoveFest 2018

The year was 2018…or was it?!!

I recently had the pleasure of attending one of the funnest wedding celebrations I have ever attended!!! Their was music, flower crowns, food trucks, a beer garden, anacondas, and even helicopter rides.

It was truly so magical!!! The dusty air, sunset, amazing food and tunes. I felt like I was at my favorite music festival actually. And festivals really weave a special kind of magic – it’s wild, invigorating, and the energy is electric.With a buzz in the air and glitter in your hair and all over your face— nothing can make you feel more alive than the chaos and freedom of a festival or a celebration of love!!!!!!!

Facial And Skin Obsessed

One thing I do know is that I would really love for my skin to look like I was just born. Which means: facials every month!!!

Think of professional facials as a monthly ‘spring cleaning’ for your skin. While daily cleansing, weekly exfoliating and skin care are essential, it’s the professional facials that will thoroughly clean your skin and revitalise it incomparably.

Although results from facials are usually seen instantly after a single facial, the benefits of committing to regular facials are cumulative – and here are 4 reasons why you need monthly facials:

Escaping To Carlton Landing/ The Verana House Staycation

A STAYCATION ON OKLAHOMA’S SCENIC LAKE EUFAULA...

Fancy a weekend stay at a beautiful vacation rental home in a coastal inspired lakeside gem that is nestled in the town of Carlton Landing at Lake Eufaula, Oklahoma?!! You don't have to ask me twice! Carlton Landing is such a lovely escape destination and so close to us here in Tulsa my dears.

As I mentioned before, Carlton Landing is the most picturesque little place. From the moment you arrive in the heart of the little town, your camera is ready and your eyes dart from quaint corners and pretty streets and the most beautiful homes--plus you are greeted by the cutest animals! I loved taking the time to just explore on foot along all of the streets just wandering around, getting lost and uncovering every little nook. You seriously cannot turn a corner without something catching your eye. It's just so incredibly charming and I cannot get enough.

A SOFT FOCUS ON SUMMER LIGHT

I have really been mood boarding like crazy (I had a lot of time to kill on my back for nine days with a neck sprain. Seriously who sprains their neck in their sleep?) And I really have been playing with light and shadows within my photography so I just wanted to share some beautiful pics that I took of my friend Katie. I think they are so pretty and hope you will too!

Tulsa's 4 Most Instagrammable Walls

I love exploring a city I’m visiting and capturing its essence. When I travel somewhere new, or if I want to play tourist in my own city, I like to find the best spots to take pictures. I so look forward to really capturing all the hot spots in all the cities I travel to and sharing them with you so you can also capture some amazing photos for your Insta grid. And we know it's for Instagram, right?! Laugh out loud. 

So there are some people who never feel the urge to leave the house . They’re completely content to stay in the city they came from and literally just float in the 360 degrees that surround them. And then there’s the rest of us who can’t sit still . We have a love for travel and curiosity. We love taking risks, exploring new places , ideas, and foods. We even live for the day trips hitting that big magical open road exploring our own cities . We embrace these #NeverIdle lifestyle just like #TeamValvoline

I’m working with Valvoline to feature some of Tulsa’s coolest street art with my top 4 murals that are not to be missed! Valvoline believes we were never meant to sit. To rest. To settle . We were meant to run. So we totally align in so many ways.

Friday Five//The Summer Edition

It's Friday so you know what that means....it's time for another Friday Five round up! I have so neglected this series (catch up on older Friday Five's here) and I promise to stay more on-top of it! It has always gotten a great response and is such a great way for me to recap the things I am sharing on my Instagram that you may have missed. 

My beauty bag has been inundated with new beauty products to try – from new to me skin care products, cosmetics, and some fabulous haircare items.  All of the gems featured here have been personally reviewed by me for weeks and I have a feeling you are really going to love them.

I feel like it's pretty much impossible to have a good hair day in the summer and forget makeup as it just drips off my oily skin by noon in these three digit temps. So I really rely on finding the best products to keep me looking somewhat decent out there! (and hydrated) So here are my five for this week's summer edition. 

First thing's first....beauty starts from the inside...and hydration is so important.

Beauty Review: NIU BODY

As a certified beauty junkie, I love discovering new brands. And trying to make everything in my life "greener" I especially love discovering green goodness brands. 

And if the brand can deliver results --well I'm drawn in by anything that can get my skin looking it's very best because to me good skin starts with good skincare - and the less make-up the better in my books!

NIU BODY

NIU BODY was founded in March of 2017 by Laura Burget and Connie Lo after being frustrated with the natural beauty products available on the market. Options were limited to either pseudo-natural products which weren't effective or high-end brands which cost a fortune. NIU BODY aspires to be a truly natural, approachable brand, at affordable prices so all babes can enjoy everything green beauty has to offer.

Day Dreaming Of The Amalfi Coast With Perrier

I love the idea of an apéritif-they are just so simple and refreshing! For today’s cocktail, I turned to a classic Italian aperitivo for inspiration, but with a twist-combining Prosecco with freshly muddled peach and mint and a splash of Perrier Peach.  Perrier Peach is one of the newest flavor in Perrier’s line of all-natural flavored sparkling waters (the L’Orange flavor is also lovely in this easy Prosecco cocktail)

Sweet Defeat 30-Day Sugar Detox

I am so excited to have started a 30 day sugar detox  on Monday. I am on day 4 now and really loving it!

Check it out over on my Instagram to get all the details. I made a permanent story on my Hi-lights titled Sugar Detox. (It has the little watermelon cover)

About once every two months or so, I start to feel like I need to reboot my system. I have always found that giving my body a little detox is always a grand idea and I feel so much better afterward. I feel so much healthier and have such a better grasp on making better choices.
