Splurge vs. Steal: The Colorblock Bikini

A special Thank You to Ami Clubwear for partnering on this post! All content and opinions expressed here are my own.

The second I saw this edgy, multi-colored bikini, I knew I wanted to take it with me on vacation. So when Ami Clubwear gave me an opportunity to try a few of their new arrivals, I was thrilled to see they carried an inspired version of the popular Triangl bikini. Oh, and starting at only $16, this purchase will barely make a dent into your monthly shopping budget. You have a choice between twenty plus colorblock combinations and styles, it was difficult to choose just one. In fact, my boyfriend made the final decision for me... and I'm glad he went with the pink and orange Poppy look-alike. Tip: Be sure to review the size chart before ordering. I found that their swimsuits run a tad small, which worked out perfectly for me, as I typically have issues with sizing due to my petite stature.

2015 Gift Guide: Mother's Day

If I had to pick a favorite holiday to shop for, Mother's Day would be at the top of the list. My mother and I have similar tastes, especially when it comes to style... so shopping for her, is like shopping for myself. With just ten days to go and without giving away the goods (mom reads this blog from time to time), here's a roundup of gift ideas, for those still thinking about what to get mom on that special day:

1. // You can never have enough make up brushes
2. // The most aesthetically pleasing glass teapot
3. // Add a few Summer colors to her polish collection
4. // Everyday comfort in this plush robe
5. // Yet another reason to carry everything you need all in one place
6. // A classic, sweet scent for a classy woman
7. // Gemstones + clusters = statement studs
8. // Just because we can't persuade her to tattoo 'mom' on her wrists ;)

What are you getting mom on Mother's Day?
