Kiyonna's Luna Lace Dress Review

Hi guys! After reviewing a handful of Kiyonna pieces of the last year, the Luna Lace Dress is probably my favorite of the bunch. I am smitten with it! It embodies many of my favorite qualities in style: classic, romantic, and ladylike. The top of the dress has a nude mesh. I appreciate that because you can hide the straps of any type of bra. The ruched torso gently cinches in at the waist, which creates an A-line silhouette in the skirt. It also feels really nice. The lace is soft and the entire dress is smooth and flowy. 

When I instagrammed the above photo, I captioned it, "This dress makes me feel like a princess going to a really fancy lunch." I meant it, too. This dress makes me feel special and beautiful. I love that fashion can make you feel that way.

Dress c/o Kiyonna, Catwalk Pointy Court Pumps from SimplyBe, Charming Charlie necklace, and my mom's old handbag. :)

Because I Love You and Dutch Bros

Passing the #dutchluv to you! I adore Dutch Bros' new floral mug so much, that I bought one to giveaway. Yaaayyyy! I know many of you don't have a DB in your area, and I probably don't make the situation any better by posting photos of my coffee or talking about them in my vlog. That's why I wanted to do this---so you can live that dutch life everyday. Visit me on Instagram to enter the giveaway!

*This giveaway is not sponsored by Dutch Bros. I just love their drinks, awesome customer service, charity work, and good vibes.

#PSPfit LIVI Launch Party Recap

I meant for this post to be up three weeks ago---oops! Better late than never, right? The #PSPfit + LIVI Launch Party at Lane Bryant was so much fun! I had the best time meeting all of you and getting to know you in person. I wrote this in the caption of a selfie I posted after the event, but it still rings true today: My heart is so full right now. Seriously. To meet you that day and hear your stories meant a lot to me. I say this often, but I mean it each time: you guys inspire me more than you know. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making that Saturday one I will never forget.

P.S. Big shout out to the team at Lane Bryant in the Villaggio Shopping Center. Alan, Megan S., Megan T., Christine, Amy, Bex, and Alex: you were the biggest help. Thank you for welcoming me into your store and taking care of everyone at the party!

Gym Intimidation

Before I set foot into the gym a few weeks ago, I was extremely nervous and scared.

What would people think of me?
Would they tell me something or give me nasty looks?
Where is all the equipment in the gym?
How do I even use all this stuff?
Can I do this?

My nerves were so wrecked that I had to talk about it on camera in the car. I had to talk to you because I know you would be able to relate to the intimidation that comes with going to the gym. This video documented how I felt before and after stepping into the gym for the first time in a long time. Have you ever experienced this fear? Let's talk about it. xx
