Rise & Shine!

Today I wanted to give you guys a few of my favorite breakfast hot spots on 30A. If you have never been to 30A, it is a beautiful scenic highway with little beach communities that have some of the best BEACHES and FOOD. You have probably heard of either Destin and of course Panama City… well 30A is smack dab in the middle of those two. We like to keep it a little secret 🙂 So if you’re planning a trip soon keep reading to find out some of my favorite early morning breakfast stops.

Breakfast is personally my favorite meal out of the entire day , so I am super excited that I am writing this post to share with you guys. Here are my top 5 favorites..

  1. Bud & Alleys ( SEASIDE )

– If you’re looking for an amazing view with a mimosa for an early morning, this is your place to go. You can sit up top on the patio & bar area which gives you the best view of the beach and gulf coast and a chance to enjoy the breeze. Justin & I ate here the other day and the food was to die for. He had sweet potato pancakes and HOLY MOLY talk about the best pancake ever. I had the breakfast sandwich and it was just as good. The staff was super friendly and the atmosphere is the best. It’s a little more on the pricey side but in my opinion totally worth it.

2. Big Bad Breakfast ( Inlet Beach )

– When I worked down here last summer my friends and I would always hit up BBB almost every Friday morning. I got hooked on the food there and just about every single item on the menu is good. My favorite to get is the BIG BAD BREAKFAST PLATE. It comes with your usual eggs, sausage, toast, etc. Something about their sausage is just so good. You can sit outside by the pool area since it is connected to a condominium and enjoy the view.

3. Great Southern ( Seaside )

– Now this place is my top favorite for dinner. There’s always a long wait to get in but at breakfast time it’s a little less. It’s totally worth it though. The people who run this place are so sweet and the food is unbelievable. They make breakfast different and soooo good. Last time I had the Eggs Benedict and it was such a great choice! You guys definitely need to hit this place up whether it be breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

4. Donut Hole ( Inlet )

– This is where the family tradition begins. My family and I growing up always went to the donut hole 2-4 times while staying on 30A. They have a sit down option or you can just go get donuts! We would usually ride our bikes and grab some donuts to ride back with. But go EARLY because the line gets out the door FAST. My family’s favorite donut is the Chocolate/ White angel donut which is filled with icing and covered in powder sugar. You talk about a lot of calories but if you’re up to it then EAT IT LOL. Highly recommend this and definitely reasonably priced for a family atmosphere.

5. Badass Coffee ( Grayton )

– Looking for something quick to fill your coffee cravings? Well Badass coffee is where I get mine. YES, THAT IS THE NAME. The coffee is from Kona, Hawaii & it tastes the best. They soak their ice cubes in coffee to where it won’t get watered down and I thought that was the coolest thing ever. I always get an iced vanilla & caramel latte and it always satisfies me. They have a variety of different menu items and my goal is to try every one. You guys know how much I love my coffee…

Hope you guys enjoyed! I can’t wait to do more future posts like this.

XOXO,

The Neutral Look

Shoes: Target // Top: Old Navy // Shorts: F21 // Purse: Kate Spade ( Similar ) // Sunglasses: Raybans

Hellooooo neutrals. Keeping it casual today. I’ve been going back and forth between the colors in my wardrobe lately. Do I want to stick to the colors of the rainbow or neutrals? Only time will tell I guess lol. I’ve noticed my closet has been full of colorful stripes and ya’ll I am not a striped person so this is very unusual of me. There have just been so many cute items this season that consist of that Summer pattern and I just can’t seem to resist.

This top is for sure a staple piece for the Summer. You can’t go wrong with a white popover relaxed top. It literally will go with ANYTHING. So if you’re having trouble deciding what to wear, heres your go-to gf!! They have plenty at Old Navy where I purchased this one for around only $20.

Another favorite of mine are these metallic mules. I am a huge mule fan over ballet flats any day. One because they don’t rub the back of your ankle… can I get an amen?! Now don’t get me started with how many cute pair of them Target has. If you’re not a fan of this color there are plenty more to go around for only around $22!

XOXO.

Forever 21: Swim Style

Top: F21 // Bottoms: F21 // Earrings: 21

Believe it or not, this actually isn’t a swim top but it looked like one so hey why not? I have been super MIA lately so I am sooooo sorry. These last few weeks have been crazy busy and my photographer hasn’t been by my side everyday so you take what you can get ;). Justin has been a trooper with me dragging him around to take pictures when he’s here and I can’t thank him enough!

Today the weather has been unbelievable great despite the rain we have had the past couple days. Perfect for a beach day! These swimsuit bottoms were online and in-store for only $15. They come in yellow and white. I would definitely size up if you were to buy them. I love the slight ruffle at the top and you know me and my love for all high-waisted things!

My top ( not a swim top but can be worn as seen above lol ) is only $14! So style it even with a cute pair of jean shorts or if you’re like me use it as a swim top. Smocked tube tops are my new fave and are so on trend this Summer.

I promise I will keep you guys more updated as my Summer goes on! Thanks for all your sweet comments and support as always!

XOXO,

Gingham Two-Piece

IMG_8007BLOGYP-5

Two-piece // Sandals // Earrings

This morning I woke up and literally thought it was Tuesday. I’m glad it’s Wednesday because that means one more day closer to the weekend. The past couple days I’ve been off so I have constantly been running around on 30A finding picture hot spots & wonderful food places. The food trucks in Seaside are my absolute favorite and it’s always a hard time deciding which one I want to indulge in.

Instead of the food trucks, the other day Justin & I decided to go to Great Southern for breakfast which is in Seaside also. Mannnn let me tell you how good their breakfast was. I ordered the eggs benedict with gouda grits and it was absolutely so tasteful and AMAZING. Justin ordered pancakes with sausage and it was just as good. By the end of it we cleared our plates so I’m sure that can get my point across. My family & I usually eat dinner there but their breakfast was just perfect as well.

Anyways, lets chit-chat about my favorite two-piece for Summer so far. This little number is only $13 and yes it includes the top & shorts. I was wondering why it was so cheap but when I received it , the material was perfect and I could not wait to wear it. This was part of my she-in splurge right before school let out. They are actually having a huge sale right now so you can click here to view it. Would definitely purchase a few items while this is going on.

This Memorial Day weekend is looking a little bit rainy for the gulf coast so let’s pray it gets better! Have a great hump day!

XOXO,

Monday Blues

Monday Blues? No, I am not talking about the Monday blues you think I am. Today has been a great day! I am so sorry I have been MIA lately. My schedule has been so busy going from finals to on a cruise to 30A for the summer.I’ve been such a busy girl and just now have started to settle down. Luckily, I finally got my photographer back for a couple days and what can I say he’s getting to be a pro!

I am loving all of these blue pieces lately. To be honest, I would have never worn these but once I tried them on I fell in loveeeee. The fact that they were under $30 too was a plus. The colors on this halter top caught my eye and they paired perfect with these high-waisted pants. This top was a good steal of only $13. Fun fact… I got the lucky chance to wear this outfit in Little Big Town’s music video two nights ago. I can’t wait to see it even if it’s just a clip 🙂

I hope you guys have a great week! Shine bright my darlingggsss and don’t always forget that being YOU is the best thing you can be.

XOXO,

Transcending Waves : The Perfect Planner

IMG_1159BLOGYPIMG_1161BLOGYP

Good morning guys!

I hope all of you are off to a great start so far to this week.  I am currently sipping my morning coffee and wondering how I got so blessed to be at the beach for the Summer for the second year in a row. I look forward to sharing so many of these beautiful moments with you in the next few months of my journey!

When I get unorganized it really seems like the end of the world. I start to lose focus and forget about things I need to do or have to do in a certain period of time. Once that happens I start to procrastinate on actually GETTING organized and you know the rest..lol. I can’t emphasize enough on how getting organized can save your life! I don’t know about you but it puts me in a better mood knowing exactly what I have to do for the day or getting in a healthy fitness routine just by writing things down.

A couple of weeks ago, right before my final exams, I started using my new transcending waves planner and completely fell in love with it. Not only does it have time slots for each day, it also has a place to put your goals and a nightly checklist after you complete your day. For me this is extremely helpful with my classes, workout routines, work schedules , etc. It can really benefit you in a variety of different ways. When I received this planner I was amazed at how writing your goals & to-do’s can influence your way of thinking or mood throughout the day.

Have a great day,

Come on Barbie, let’s go party

Top: F21 // Shorts: Nordstrom // Shoes: Converse // Sunnies: AE // Earrings: Dupe

Hey guys!

There isn’t anything wrong with a little Barbie fun on this gorgeous Friday, right? Fun fact one of my favorite colors is pink so when I saw this top + my childhood favorite toy name, it was definitely something I had to have. This ones for you mom lol ( she didn’t understand why I was buying this top). I couldn’t help but have the “Barbie girl” song lyrics in my head after I made this purchase. I think this is super cute for summer with a pair of high-waisted jean shorts or some workout leggings. It can be styled do many different ways. Tonight I am going with the workout leggings idea because Justin & I are having a movie date night to see Infinity War. I am wearing a size M and the price is under $15! Of course I also had to add a bright pair of hot pink converse. Back in the day, I would buy so many different color pairs of converse and still to this day I refuse to get rid of them.

Ya’ll these adorable heart sunglasses from American Eagle are under $10. I actually bought them in store but they are still in stock online 🙂 I thought this was the perfect touch for this fun Friday outfit! Oh how could I ever forget… Baublebar is having a huge sale for today!! The blue tassel earrings I am wearing above are only $10 along with many other different adorable styles!

Hope you guys have a great Friday night! Love you all!

XOXO,
