These pumps are by the brand Life Stride and I can honestly say they are the most comfortable pair I’ve ever owned. They have extra cushion on the inside, which is perfect when you’re especially TERRIBLE at walking in heels like I am. Just by the way, the wind was crazy when we took these photos. There was one picture where all of my hair was covering my whole face. I’m thinking about putting together a bloopers post of all the photos throughout the year that have gone wrong so you guys can have a laugh at my expense. Thanks for reading! (:

Hi everyone! Spring break is right around the corner, and although I’m not going anywhere warm and tropical this year, I know some of you are! These are a few things that i never leave behind when I go on vacation:
1.) Sunscreen + Self Tanner– SPF is so important so you don’t come back all red and blotchy. If you still want to have some color use some self tanner or a bronzing lotion. Some of my favorite tanners are Eco Tan (organic) and L’Oreal Paris Sublime Bronzing Lotion. Victoria’s Secret makes amazing bronzing lotion!
2.) A Polaroid Camera– This Fujifilm Instax camera is perfect for taking those Tumblr looking vintage beach pictures you’ve been dreaming about. Don’t worry you can still Instagram them! Take a picture of the pictures with your phone.
3.) Extra Nail Polish– With all that abrasive sand, you may need a touch-up.
4.) A Book You’ve Been Meaning to Read– Did anyone see the trailer for The Longest Ride? It looks a-m-a-z-i-n-g! I love anything by Nicholas Sparks. Reading is so much better on the beach. Plus, you’ll have it for the car or plane ride too.
5.) A Lip Balm With SPF– You really don’t want to burn your lips!
6.) A Water Bottle– carrying around a water bottle will save tons of $$$ and will keep you cool and hydrated.
