Emerald Skirt (+ giveaway)

I don't mean to scare you all but Valentine's Day is just a little more than two weeks away! While one can argue that love should be celebrated all the time and unconditionally, I still think it's nice that we dedicate a particular day to show people that we really care about them and are grateful that they're in our lives.

It usually takes me a long time to decide what to wear during a special occasion; I sometimes even stress about it for weeks but this time I know exactly what kind of look to go for thanks to this stunning emerald skirt by Style Grove! The Wonderland Skirt is a perfect combination of girly, fashionable, fun to style and a timeless piece to add to your wardrobe. Style Grove sells them in many colours, so if emerald really isn't your thing, you can try it in charcoal or sapphire.

P.S. If you feel like something is different about my hair, you're right because I finally got a haircut! I've been wanting to get the long bob done for a while (also known as the "lob") and caved this past weekend and couldn't be happier about it. Stay tuned as I'll be doing some other stuff to it this coming weekend.

Resort Life at Grand Bahia Principe in Jamaica


Feels like a lifetime ago when my husband and I went on our honeymoon. Many people asked where we went, how we decided on a spot, and what our experience was. I thought I'd share it all with you here.
