Bali Body’s Complete Glow Bundle is a must if you’re headed to the beach. The bundle offers various shades so that you can find one that works with your skin tone. I have used their Tanning/Body Oil and it seriously makes you shades darker in just a day! But you HAVE to use SPF when using their oils or else you will without a doubt burn, and like bad. Especially if you’re under intense UV rays.

Gotta protect that skin people !

You want packing to be efficient and easy, right? CALPAK luggage is super sturdy but easy to pick out of a crowd with it’s sleek and stylish look. I love this black, 2 piece set. It’s super convenient having 2 pieces of luggage; more space + you don’t have to cram everything into one bag

Stripes are really in this Spring/Summer season, especially when it comes to swimwear & I just love these standout swimmies

I just purchased the Jaci Marie Preset Pastel Pack and I am obsessed. It comes with 5 Lightroom presets and is definitely worth the buy. I used the Jaci Marie COOL Preset to edit the images in this post. Lightroom is a bit of a hassle to figure out but once you get the hang of it you can really create some fun and unique images – whether that be for your own blog, creating original content, or if you just want to add an aesthetic to your Instagram feed.

I’m headed to Nashville for the break and I cannot wait for the food, shopping, and music. It’ll be nice to escape allll these mid-terms and schoolwork for a week. I can’t wait to share all the fun & travels with you guys !!
