I’ve never been so happy to say that IT’S FRIDAYYY! I leave for LA in approximately 10 hours. Can’t.Wait. Oh, and don’t forget today is the day to get your Panera Blue Ribbon Bagels! In recognition of National Foster Care Month, Panera generously donates 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these bagels to the Foundation for Foster Children, benefitting local foster youth. Deliciously philanthropic. 


Just a little recap: This weekend was fun-filled with all sorts of activities, most notably including the Nautique “King of Wake” Games on Saturday, accompanied by an impromptu photoshoot with my favorite Bill Ward. I think it’s quite clear that I was unaware photographs would be taken; however, I’ll share the (semi)decent ones.


.oh, hey.

All of these water sports, upcoming vacations, and the looming summer season have me obsessed with buying bathing suits. Victoria Secret can thank me for approximately 10% of their annual income this year in swimsuits alone. I’m venturing out beyond my comfort zone, too. Normally I stick to push-up halter tops to enhance my barely there cleavage, but I’ve tried a few bandeau tops from Target and Venus, and I’m obsessed. They’re adorable, surprisingly enhancing, and eliminate conspicuous and often painful tan lines. Oh, and everyone knows I love ruffles. SO MANY STORES HAVE RUFFLES. It’s insane…and very exciting.


Here are some of my favorite links to the best style deals for this sunny season:


1. Save up to 40% on designer swimwear for a limited time only from

2. Check out The Talent Pool 2012 Swim Collections (Now at Shopbop!)

3. Hot New Swim Styles from Victoria Secret ($15 off $100, $30 off $150, $75 off $250)


What brands are y’all looking at this year? Anybody else getting straight up amped for beach days, margaritas, and luaus galore?! I certainly am.


Have a fabulous weekend, and I’ll chat with y’all when I return as a celebrity from LA. Love you!

      It is a sickness, indeed! I just got back from LA (which was surprisingly cold and somewhat rainy– boo!), so tomorrow better be another sunny FL day!! Hope you're having a great week.

      Oh, and LA was a BLAST.

      Oh, stop! You're gorgeous, you could. I love it, though! I'm trying to transition into wearing more bandeau tops instead of halters.. the tan lines are killing me, but I hate sacrificing the enhancement! Boo. Hope you're having a great week 🙂
