Thursday's Fab Five

WOW, it's been a while since I've done a Fab Five, amiright?!  Sorry!

The heat has been brutal here in D.C. so I've been trying to stay in air conditioning as much as possible.  I'm so looking forward to the fall, it's been a great summer so far, but the heat as been intense.

Here's what I've been loving this lately this summer!

LOFT Summer Haul

LOFT is without a doubt one of my favorite stores, the sales are incredible, and this past weekend I stumbled onto their site, and scored some seriously great steals.  LOFT was offering 30% off full price merchandise or 40% off if you have a LOFT store card, which of course, I have.  Even though that sale is over, LOFT is now offering 40% off certain styles today, online only!  By the way, this is in addition to the sale items that are an extra 40% off.  I can't lie though, yesterday the sale styles were an additional 60% off, I paid under $20, even under $10 for a majority of my order.

LOFT often does these random pop up sales, so if you're a LOFT lover like me, sign up for their emails, that way you'll always be up to date with the newest sale information.

#SweatyMess? Try evian Facial Spray!

The D.C. heatwave has been out of control for the past 2 weeks.  My friend & I have started our own little business venture, a summer camp for some of our students, and we spend 80% of our day outside walking around the city.  Walking around in this heat, with 10 kids, has been intense to say the least.  I've been so happy to have my evian Facial Spray by my side as a quick pick me up when I'm feeling gross & need a refresher.  

Truth be told, I've been using the evian Facial Spray since high school...and seeing that I just celebrated my 26th birthday, that's been a long time.  I used to buy the larger bottles and really only used it at home, but I've found the travel size is way more practical, especially on these summer days.

evian Facial Spray keeps me from being a #SweatyMess each day, it's a pH moisturizing spray that helps refresh the skin when exposed to sweat, sun, chlorine, and anything else that may disrupt your skin from feeling its best.  While I've been mostly using my evian Facial Spray to combat perspiration, it's also an incredible way to keep your skin hydrated while in flight.  I made sure to spray my face a few times while on the red eye from L.A. to Newark after my Hawaii trip.  My skin felt hydrated and refreshed the whole flight! 

Facial sprays are popular these days, and this one is a classic that delivers hydration.  I've been using it for about 10 years now, and I know I'll be using it for 10 more!

LLB Travels: Greetings from Hawaii [Part II]

If you missed it, the other week I posted the highlights of my trip to Honolulu, you can check it out here if you missed it!  Today I'm focusing on the week of this trip that I spent in Maui, which was, of course, incredible

Going to Maui had definitely been on my bucket list and I am so happy I was able to go!  For a week no less!  Traveling from island to island is really quite easy, the flight from Honolulu to Maui was about 30 minutes, perfect for a nap.

We stayed in a gorgeous condo at the Wailea Beach Villas, you can check out the quick Snap videos below.  The kitchen was amazing, and I'm now convinced everyone needs two refrigerators, because...why not??  The Wailea Beach Villas had an incredible adult only infiniti pool complete with sunscreen, towels, and ice water.  The beach area was just as great, an attendant set you up with lounge chairs and umbrellas.  It was really great and the service was fantastic.

LLB Travels: Greetings from Hawaii! [Part I]

I've been relatively MIA for a while, life has been going a mile a minute, & here's why...

It was the end of the school year & my elementary school is being renovated for an entire year, which meant every single thing moving out of our building.   Moving everything out coupled with normal end of the year things was...woah overload to say the least...lots of wine involved getting through that one.

The week after school ended I decided to get ahead on my recertification, so I took a week long all day class for credits.  Literally, all day long, without my laptop...#help.

THEN, as soon as I ended that week long class I jumped in my car, drove up to Jersey, and flew to Honolulu to meet my best friend, Heather, and her family!  FINALLY, relaxation.  It took a while, but I finally made it to summer vacation!

Blogging was certainly put on the back burner during the month of June, but I'm looking forward to writing tons of content this summer.  I have some exciting posts coming up with Evian, Hask Haircare, and some fun new recipes to share as well.

But first, I want to share some pictures of my incredibly awesome vacation in Honolulu & Maui!  This post, Part I, will highlight the first part of my Hawaiian adventure Waikiki, while Part II will highlight Maui and Disney's Aulani Resort back in Waikiki. 

Waikiki, Honolulu, Hawaii 

In Honolulu we stayed at the Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort which is right on beach, can't get more perfect than that!  Heather's family vacations to Hawaii every 5 years to celebrate her parents wedding anniversary, this year they celebrated 40 years of marriage, so awesome.  The Outrigger is where they stayed during their honeymoon, so it's extra special, & I was so grateful to join them on this trip!
