Summer is almost here and during these months I enjoy the search for flowy white dresses, white pants, and I’m always on the hunt for a fun beach bag. When I spotted this one I thought; how fun is a beach Birkin! It comes with a shoulder strap too so you’ll be hands free for your Rosé all day!

Zara always has plenty of dresses to choose from for a great price.

This year we spent spring break in Asia and almost every fashionista I saw was wearing cool sneakers and a flowy dress. I’ve never seen such fabulous style as I did in Japan and Korea; these women were chic, elegant and edgy. The sneaker brand I saw the most was Golden Goose, Nike Cortez and Adidas, there were some pretty cool “dad shoes” too. I purchased the ones above when we returned, they are the most comfortable sneaker I’ve worn. My friend Doreen and I got the same ones and we’re going back for another pair!

If you live in Los Angeles the Nike store on Melrose is the first neighborhood shop that combines their streamlined online experience and their in-store service.  The boutique is powered by the local trends of the area. Every other week new merchandise arrives along with exclusive services. It’s right down the street from me… that’s good and that’s bad!

If you are local or are traveling to LA, don’t miss out if you’re a Nike fan!

Thanks for your time and do share any dress secrets with me, I’d love some good tips.

Traveling to Japan, Tokyo, Kyoto, Beijing, Korea, and Hong Kong with Heys.

We just returned from a two week trip in Asia and Heys luggage once again did not disappoint. We visited Japan, Tokyo, Kyoto, Beijing, Korea, and the last stop... Hong Kong. That also included a few train rides. Not only did it return back to the U.S. in great shape, it's super lightweight and expandable just in case you need to pack a few extra items from a day of shopping.

Last year I took a little road trip with another stylish Heys suitcase from their marble collection.  This year I went for the Para-Lite 30".  It locks, it spins, and rolls like a charm. 

Luggage doesn't always have to be expensive to hold up. 
Thanks Heys! Rollin' with you has been a breeze!

No one wants to be charged extra for baggage weight. Heys is lightweight at just 11 lbs. and is 30" x 19.3" x 13".

We’re always in more than one place, so having these bags to stay organized is a must! Depending on the weather and activities, we don’t have to dig through our luggage searching for an outfit - plus you’re saving space and time.

The Ecotex 5pc Packing Cube Set is made from 18 recycled water bottles. By utilizing discarded materials to create new products, Heys offers an eco-friendly choice for a clean and sustainable future… Love that!

Great gift idea for Mother’s Day too. You can also see my friend and blogging partner Melissa Meyers enjoying Heys selection from our road trip last year. Love the striped interior of the Bianco Marble collection!

Enjoy your travels wherever they may take you!

Thank you for reading!
