How to: Relax in a Day + Win a Trip to Hawaii

Summer is all about relaxing, despite some of our shortcomings in physically being able to take a break from work or school, and simply be.  Nonetheless, everyone needs a little R&R periodically to reset.  Therefore, I'm teaming up with Tommy Bahama to showcase some of my favorite ways to relax in one day (you can relax for one day - nobody will tell the relaxation police).


8:30 AM / Despite my ridiculous inability to sleep past 6 AM on any given day of the week, Sundays are my days for rest.  Beginning a day of relaxation obviously requires a delicious cool smoothie and an inspirational book, and a Tommy Bahama Chillax recipe is just the fix.  Rather than opting for a coffee (although I pretty much live for it), this mango and coconut-infused smoothie gives an island escape vibe for the entire day.  It could also be mixed with rum, but an 8:30 AM cocktail may be a little too much relaxing just yet.


9:30 AM / Migrate to the bathroom for a little skin therapy - there's something about applying an anti-stress facial mask and Lancome's exfoliating cream all over my body that instantly relaxes everything.  Perusing through my e-mail inbox and scrolling past Instagram selfies has never been so tranquil.  


10:30 AM / Select an outfit for the day that consists of barely-there bikini bottoms and a matching top of course.  Anything else would be uncivilized.  After all, National Relaxation Day is August 15th so that's the excuse that I'm going with for rocking a bikini all day, every day, up until then.  


1 PM / By now, switching to a beach or poolside lounge chair has probably taken place.  Take some time to clear your mind, rub a little tanning oil on the body, read a good book, and bask in all of this relaxing glory. 


3 PM / It's probably considered happy hour somewhere, so now would be a good time to add a little rum into that Tommy Bahama Chillax smoothie.  I opted for non-alcoholic, but feel free to spice it up!

The Chillax Recipe: 
1 ½ parts Cruzan® Mango Rum (optional)
¾ parts Cruzan® Vanilla Rum (optional)
1 part Mango purée
1 part Coco Lopez
1 ½ parts Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice

Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass. Shake over ice and immediately strain over cubed ice or blend it up for a deliciously refreshing beverage.


4 PM / By this time, I'm ultimately ravished and craving either chocolate or another snack that is equally healthy enough for me.  In an attempt to combine the two, I concocted probably the most epic snack of all time: Cookies n' cream popcorn.  Shut the front door.  It's even kid-friendly (tested and approved by my toddler).  The recipe for this will be on my YouTube channel.




8 PM / Wrap up the day with a lavender foot soak and run a hot bubble bath, accompanied with a Lush bath bomb for utter relaxation.  There's something about the scent of lavender and jasmine that feels ritzy and comforting to the soul.  Wonder what you accomplished for the day, and realize that it's been one hell of a relaxing day.


In honor of National Relaxation Day, I've teamed up with Tommy Bahama to bring you the "Summer of Go" Sweepstakes which includes weekly giveaways between July 16th - August 18th and a Grand Prize Giveaway on National Relaxation Day weekend (August 15th - 18th)!

Summer Essentials + Giveaway!


Summer is my favorite season for endless reasons - warm weather, beautiful sunsets, beach days with my little man, and cold watermelon on my lips.  In celebration, I'm sharing the top Summer essentials on my list and products or brands that this girl is simply loving right now.  

The combination of high-end fashion and fine art make this line of clothing and accessories so beautiful.  Since 2012, Calaphya has built an array of gorgeous tops inspired by creating art and design for everyday life.  Whether dressing it up with an A-line skirt and heels or keeping it casual with a pair of black jeans, Calaphya tops have been my go-to on an everyday basis.

2. Flurowater
Hydration is key during the Summer.  After my recent trip to New York City, I was dehydrated and needed a pick-me-up (now enters Flurowater).  What makes Flurowater a favorite of mine is that it contains 14 nutrients, contains less than 10 calories, with zero sugar, 6 grams of fiber per bottle, and it makes drinking water a little more exciting.  Since I work out often and don't take many vitamins, this is my lifesaver.  It also comes in delicious flavors like Watermelon Raspberry, Kiwi Cucumber, Macoun Apple, and Dark Cherry.

3. Memebox
Subscription boxes typically offer sample sizes; however, Memebox offers 4-8 FULL-size beauty products to give the best experience.  After trying out various subscription beauty boxes Memebox has become my BFF not only for the full-size products, but all of the items are from Korea. If you haven't tried out Korean beauty products, you must try this out.  They are unique and amazing! 

4. Hollywood Fashion Tape
Fashion tape should be in every girl's purse.  Whether sweat is dripping down your body, clothes are slipping or you're wearing a dress that needs a lift, Hollywood Fashion Tape helps keep it all together.

5. It's a Ten Miracle Leave-In Product
The Holy Grail beauty product for the Summer (or ever).  After showering and washing my hair, I apply the It's a Ten Miracle Leave-In Product for a silky all-day shine.

6. Anatomie Travel Clothing
Made of Italian and French fabrics, Anatomie travel clothes are essential for Summer trips when comfort and style is key.  When I was in New York, I wore their Merika Wind Breaker pretty much everywhere.  Anatomie also offers a custom "Find Your Pant" service where they take your measurements and information to find the exact pair of pants that fits best.  If I'm ever traveling and need pieces that will keep me comfortable on the plane but chic once I touch down, I gravitate to Anatomie. 

7. Doll Face Skincare
As part of my everyday skincare routine, I've been incorporating the Doll Face Illuminating Face Polish, Anti-Oxidant Protective Moisturizer and Pore Perfecting Mineral Mask to keep glowing skin that stays fresh throughout the hot Summer days.  The Pore Perfecting Mineral Mask really helps clean out any toxins that enter during the days, when my face feels like it's melting off in 90 degree weather.

8. Maybelline Baby Lips
Maybelline Baby Lips contain the perfect combination of hydration, tint, and long-wear for lips.

9. Yes to Blueberries Cleansing Facial Wipes
The Yes to Blueberries Cleansing Facial Wipes remove all of my waterproof makeup in the Summer, without drying out the face.

One of my favorite trends for this season is the "fresh crop," which is slightly rejuvenated from the previous "ab revealing" crop that was all the rage during the summer.  This particular look was worn on a breezy day at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden, which boasts a 2.6-acre greenspace in the heart of Miami Beach.  I love walking through the Botanical Garden, as it is one of the most peaceful and gorgeous spots in South Beach.

Although wearing completely black attire doesn't quite scream "Spring," I love the classic look paired with these nude caged booties by Nine West.

Sporty Chic Look + a GIVEAWAY to Meet Jillian Michaels & Shaun T (CLOSED)

Although my outfits are typically dressed up, I decided to play around with the sporty look and feel for today's look of the day.  Focusing on these paneled House of Dion pants, I went for a more structured approach by cinching layered tops at the waist with a leather belt by ASOS.  The cinched belt adds a feminine touch that creates a balance between sporty and chic.

This look is really great for those who have a smaller frame because it accentuates the top and hip area to give a curvaceous appeal.  My inspiration for this look derives from my love for health and fitness, which I really wanted to merge into a uniform outfit.  Pairing a sporty piece such as paneled pants, a sporty skirt or shorts with a feminine top can really create a polished look.
