ohhh emmm geee! this dress is absolute perfection. i must have it right this instant! how fabulously sparkly this dress is. it will be perfect for a dressy evening event!

Woohoo! Cruise is booked...

these are the islands that my bf, his family, and i will be visiting on our upcoming trip! im so freaking excited! and of course its just an excuse to go on a "gotta look cute all day, every day on the cruise" shopping spree :) haha. anyway, we will be traveling to St. Thomas, St. Maarten, and San Juan.  my first purchase of course was a cute set of luggage:

i have some Vera Bradley bags, but nothing that will satisfy 7 days worth of clothing and shoes.  so i invested in this crazy Volcom set.  i hate anything plain/normal/boring...and these bags are far from that.

cheers to vacations and traveling to new, exciting places!

Girls do not dress for boys.  They dress for themselves, and of course each other.  If girls dressed for boys, they'd just walk around naked at all times.- Betsey Johnson

haha so very true. :)

Hey guys...sorry for the MIA-ness going on recently.  I have been crazy busy with work, tutoring my kiddos, doing fun summer stuff, and studying for the CFA.  My blog has been neglected a tad.  I probably won't have as much time over the next few months to post as much as I would like, but hopefully I will still get a few posts in a week.  Hope you all had a great 4th of July weekend (I know I did!).
