Good morning everyone! Like many of you, I've used Dove products practically my entire life and when I was asked to be part of this campaign I thought it was a blessing that Dove is encouraging girls to appreciate their curly hair. It's so important to love what makes us unique and over time I've embraced the fact that my hair is curly and most of the time out of control. Finding products that reduce the frizz have always been important to me, especially when I'm trying to maintain a hairstyle for a special occasion. To be honest learning to love my curly hair has been a journey. My hair has a huge personality and in my teens, I spent so much time trying to relax my hair and actually all that ever did was damage it. In recent years, I decided to enjoy the day without worrying about having wild, curly hair and today, I thank God for every frizzy strand. Maintaining curly hair is not the easiest task, and it's wonderful that Dove has dedicated this new line to inspire women of all ages, especially young girls, to love their curls, no matter how curly or coarse it is.

The new Dove Advanced Hair Series Quench Absolute for curly, coarse hair has worked like a dream for me. First, I wash my hair using the Quench Absolute Shampoo and Quench Absolute Conditioner. Second, I towel dry my hair and add a little of the Quench Absolute Creme Serum. Last, I blow out my hair with a large round brush and use a 2" curling iron to make large smooth curls. My hair stays manageable throughout the day and I'm a happy girl. I also used the Quench Absolute Restoration Mask twice a week after shampooing and it helped hydrate and nourish my hair (something my hair desperately needed).

The beginning of spring is a great time to refresh your home and with the weather being pretty much perfect here in Miami, I decided to buy a couple of fresh scented candles on sale at Williams Sonoma and this lovely, resort maxi cover up from one of my favorite places to shop, Revolve. I also have my eye on the eyelet bedding and comfy side chair. Hope you have a great week!

 My husband and boys had another successful lobstering trip!

 Best beach bag to take to the Keys... Shop it here and here.

 The cutest manatee I ever did see. He hung out with us for over an hour.

Love this Keys style beach house located in Tavernier and it's for sale! 

 Yummy refreshments at my new favorite French coffee shop in Tavernier. Cafe Moka.

The outside of the quaint little coffee shop, Cafe Moka. 

Good morning! I'm back home after spending a few days in the Keys and what a great way to start my spring break. I was also happy to find a new to me French coffee shop that reminded me of a few I visited in the Hamptons. If you happen to be in the Keys, make sure to stop by Cafe Moka located in Tavernier for fresh brewed coffee, delicious homemade soups and sandwiches on French baguettes. YUM. 

I'm also planning on a post sharing some great places to stop in while in the upper Keys, so stay tuned. Hope you have a great day!

Good morning! I'm enjoying spring break so far. We had a great day in the Keys yesterday and while the boys were fishing and lobstering the girls went to see Cinderella. What an amazing movie! I loved the theme, have courage and be kind...what a beautiful sentiment to live your life. Anyway today, my weekend picks were inspired for my love of Mexican design. There are lots of fun spring/summer accessories here that are sure to make you feel like you're on a Mexican vacation. Be sure to scroll through the GET the LOOKS below to see gorgeous Mexican inspired styles. Enjoy and thank you so much for visiting my blog!

Good morning! My spring break just started and one thing is for sure...I really need to unwind and can definitely use a vacation, plus some girl time to see Cinderella and Insurgent. But, before I do any of that, I wanted to share these white dresses that I totally love. I bought this dress last summer and plan on wearing it this week during spring break. Honestly, it's a great idea to have a white tropical dress handy to pack for a quick getaway or vacation. Enjoy!

P.S. Follow me on Instagram and make sure to check out the fab sales happening below. Revolve (one of my top places to shop) is having a fantastic sale and Tory Burch's Private Sale is one you'll want to check out.
