    #fbf Martha’s Vineyard

    Sharing another flashback Friday today. So many people have been sharing throwbacks lately, back when times were simpler and more carefree. With it about to be Memorial Day Weekend, things are feeling extra strange. Normally, the holiday weekend is the unofficial kickoff to summer. Lots of barbecues, people going to the beach, opening up their pools etc. But, here in NJ, we’re still pretty much in lockdown even though very few restrictions have been eased. Beaches are open now, but social distancing has to be practiced and capacity is limited. State parks are open, but again the same restrictions apply. Non-essential retail is allowed to reopen for curbside pickup only…

    #fbf Morning Sun

    Happy Friday! I hope you are staying healthy out there in the craziness going on with CoronaVirus. I have off from work today, but it was already a scheduled day off for the school after yesterday’s parent-teacher conferences. With all the schools around us closing for at least 2 weeks, it is looking likely that my school will also close and switch over to 100% digital learning temporarily. I hope with so many people working from home and schools doing online learning for the next couple of weeks will help slow the spreading of the virus and things can start to calm down! Amidst all of this I thought it…

    #fbf Snowy Tree

    I wrote yesterday about how I’m hoping for at least one snow day before winter’s over. It’s been an unusually quiet winter and while winters that have constant snow storms gets annoying and tiring, it’s also so weird to not have any snow! We had snow twice I think this season but both times it was very little and pretty much gone the next day. I just need a dose of winter prettiness and not just cold, bleak winter days. And a snow day from work wouldn’t hurt either! So for my Flashback Friday, I’m throwing it back to 2 years ago when we had a snow storm and the…

    Throwback Graphic Tee

    Graphic tees make great casual tees and they’re extra great when they’re super soft and perfect for running around in as well as lounging in. When I saw this tee at Target, I had to have it as it’s the perfect nostalgic tee. I used to play Mario Kart all the time with my brother and our best friends that lived across the street. I’m still great friends with my childhood friend even though she moved to Georgia in 4th grade. In fact, I don’t think we started playing our marathon sessions of Mario Kart until after she had moved. You see, she still had a ton of family that lived…

    #fbf Custom Floral Maxi

    Happy Friday! This week didn’t go by too slowly which was nice, but I am feeling so tired and run down. Stressed to the max! So let’s throw it back to a carefree photo from last month when I was visiting family in Georgia. I wore this tiered floral maxi dress that was custom made for me from Eshakti for Easter lunch. This photo pretty much embodies how I want to feel right now! Dress: Eshakti | Wedges: DSW | Sunglasses: Quay Australia Sending easy and carefree vibes your way!

    Throwback Christmas Album Listening

    Happy Friday! It’s my first day of winter break and it could not have come at a better time. I was just about to reach my limit before complete burn out. This week and a half I have off for break is probably going to fly by as usual, but I’m hoping I can carve out some much needed relaxation. It’s going to be pretty busy with Christmas and a short little trip – don’t worry I will be taking you along with me next week! In the meantime, today’s post was originally meant to be a round up of some Christmas songs – both old and more current –…

    #fbf Poolside in Hong Kong

    Since it’s the first Friday of the school year and I’ve survived the first week I thought I’d do a flash back Friday post. Of course, I picked a #fbf from my vacation last month since apparently I’m already in need of a vacation! Swimsuit: Target I wrote about my little bit of pool time in Hong Kong at my hotel, Conrad Hong Kong, in my blog post (here). It’s been so disgustingly hot out the past few days that I wish I had a pool to jump in to! I can’t wait for fall weather to finally come around, but for now I’ll just look back at these photos…

    Happy Halloween

    Happy Halloween! Are you dressing up for the day? Did you go out over the weekend? I went out with a few friends over the weekend and we completely forgot that it was Halloween weekend and everywhere we’d go would be packed with Halloween parties. We were definitely the only people not dressed up! We also got scared by a guy in the street who was standing outside a store as a tall bush. As we were walking I thought I saw the bush move out of the corner of my eye but when I did a double take I figured I must be imagining it because it wasn’t moving.…
