What's in my beach bag?
We Are Now, We Are Bold, We Are Fit, We Are Free – We Are USA. We are boohoo.
boohoo is a brand after my own heart. I sang the praises of this dress yesterday. I want it in two other colors because the fit is amazing and let's face it...affordable fashion is my motto, let alone $35 dresses that make you feel like a goddess. The website is one of my top five bookmarked shopping sites for a reason!
Naturally, when they asked me to share what's in my beach bag...that was a no-brainer because as you know, I've savoring Summer. Every last watermelon slice!
What's in my bag? (you'll probably wish you'd never asked!) Obviously my girls have a huge influence on my free time hence the banana and stray goldfish. Sunblock...a given. Bathing suit, and cut offs because if I am with them...we're at the pool and of course, my wallet...because someone has to buy bomb pops for the clan. Oh and hand sanitizer because I'm a freak about germs. (Did you guess that? I bet you did.)
No, it's not as glamorous as my evening clutch but it's me; everyday. Enjoy the summer, enjoy the now.

I am on the countdown for my birthday getaway and I couldn't be more excited. Next stop: New Orleans! I've never been but I am ready for all the amazing food, architecture and color. I know this will be not only good for the soul but also a great opportunity to spend QT with the hubs. The last time we went away was about three years ago! Everyone tells me that that is an insane timeline but hey, life gets in the way. So yes, this is long overdue.
I haven't been able to bring myself to write three blog posts lately because I've just been so spent. Last week was brutal. The ideal of being creative on demand was not even remotely interesting to me but this week is a new week. Ever have one of those? I suppose I was due.
When I first put this top on, my husband said I looked somewhat like a pirate. Yes, I was totally flattered. And honestly, I kinda get that the sleeves evoke pirate vibes but the more I rotated this top into my wardrobe...the more I love it. I am a sucker for white tops. You can never have enough!
Do I have back fat? Is that a thing when you get closer to 40? These are questions I've been asking myself lately. But do you wanna know the real answer? The answer is no. No, Johanna...you do not have back fat. What you have is an ill-fitting bra collection and it's time to upgrade.
And a Happy Tuesday to you! I feel like I am still recovering from the Super Bowl despite remaining completely sober. Is that possible? Maybe sleep is the answer. I have so much on my mind and some pretty tight deadline. Am I already dreaming about next weekend? You betcha!
Another Monday. Another chance to create something good, right?!
Well, Olivia and I certainly kicked it off on the right foot considering we found this Cheshire Cat wall in the city. My pictures are not traditionally technicolor but when you see a good wall...you just gotta.
There's nothing like a good bodycon dress that hugs you in all the right places. I had my eye on this one for what felt like an eternity. You can always count on a sale at ASOS so I waited. I finally pulled the trigger right before Thanksgiving...the price tag? A whopping $62. Now? $25! How could you possible resist?!
As much as I love shopping for me...I honestly love shopping for you more. I love finding the perfect item when a friend inquires or seeing someones reaction when they open a gift they've been pining for. It's the hunt or the chase, rather. I love a good hunt!
I don't know a singular woman who doesn't love a good deal. Myself included. This dress is under $50 and on mega sale due to the impending holidays. I think it would be equally cute with a pair of black tights and mary janes...in the summer, with espadrilles or platforms.
I've always been somewhat of a skeptic regarding Cyber Week. Or perhaps just not ready to get my holly jolly on. I would shop sporadically all month and go at my own pace. I feel differently this year. Honestly, I think it's because I ready to celebrate the end of a very difficult year. The ups and downs were tremendous so holiday shopping and the holiday spirit seem like something I can rally around.
