One of my absolute favorite parts of blogging is getting to meet other amazing women. It has been so fun over the past few years connecting to local bloggers and sharing inspiration. I was so excited to host an awesome event at Blo Blow Dry Bar where many local Orlando bloggers came out for blowouts, bubbly and the best conversation. Blo is a fun blow dry bar downtown that specializes in blowouts, make-up application and nails. We had the best time being pampered and connecting with each other over champagne and delicious snacks.

Fall is a tricky time to shop for me. I love the cooler weather and all things pumpkin spice, but I am not a huge fan of khaki and muted colors. I tried to go shopping for some sweaters last week and every store I went into was filled with the typical fall leaf shades. I love these colors on everyone else, but for me, I am always looking for bright pink, kelly green and bright yellow items. In Florida, it is still in the 90’s and even though the evening breeze is starting to pick up, it is still too hot for most fall pieces.
Happy Monday, friends! I can not believe it is already October! If you are anything like me, October starts the busiest time of the year. With holidays and cooler weather, we have tons of weekend getaways planned and it will be Christmas before we know it! With a new month also comes new and exciting things for Mikaela J. I am SO excited to start participating in a Mommy Monday series with some other great mommy and style bloggers. Each month we will share some of our favorite products with you. This month I am thrilled to share one of my absolute favorite totes. This Crab & Cleek tote was my go-to all summer long and I am excited to start using it as my carry on for all of my trips this fall. It is the perfect size and can double as my diaper bag when we are out and about.
It must be pretty obvious by now that in addition to pink, blue is one of my all-time favorite colors to have in my wardrobe. I knew immediately when I saw this jumpsuit (that is under $25) that I had to have it! It it so cute and I loved pairing it with the blue heels and blue earrings for last week’s date night.
My husband and I went to one of our favorite restaurants last week and had the most amazing meal. If you are ever in Winter Park, do yourself a favor and have a meal at Luma on Park. Order the Crispy Pork Belly, Steakhouse Wedge and the Bolognese and you will be begging for more! If the Bolognese isn’t on the menu, just ask! The chef will usually accommodate and it is some of the best I have ever had!
