Jacket + Tee: Free People

photos: Nate Lusk Photography 

Happy Monday! The weather was a bit chilly here this weekend at the beach, which gave me a chance to wear some of my fall clothes! These photos were taken a few weeks ago, but I felt like since the weather is cooling down it was appropriate to post them! I scored this "vintage" Free People flannel at a thrift store a few months ago, and I am so obsessed with it! I have never seen the design of the tag it has, so I am guessing it is pretty old! It's giant, comfy, and perfect if you want to rock the oversized, relaxed look! I paired it with my favorite distressed FP tee and American Eagle jeans!

Weekend Snap

Monday, October 10, 2016

This weekend went by so fast! I feel like I need another day before I go back to the weekly work + work-out routine. Anybody feel me? 
I went to the Avocado Festival in Carpinteria with my family this weekend and had my sister take a few outfit snaps while we were waiting for our table at lunch! My outfit consists of my favorite Free People hat and bag, my go-to American Eagle denim cut-offs, a flowy top, and comfy sandals! The perfect, easy weekend look! 

I hope you all had a great weekend!

The Cozy Mermaid

Friday, October 7, 2016

Happy Friday! I thought today I would share my Etsy store with you all. If you follow me on Instagram, then you probably see all of my posts about my store, but I don't think I have ever really mentioned it here on the blog! 

So here is run-down of what my store is all about:
Products: Cozy Apparel & Bohemian Home Decor Created by the Sea

I started making the sweatshirts years ago as gifts, and because I just really enjoy making them, and when people suggested I sell them I decided to give it a try! I think they are the perfect, personalized gift for a loved one-I mean who doesn't love a cozy sweatshirt! 
The home decor portion of my Etsy store is the newest addition! I have always had a love for bohemian home decor and art, so I decided to learn how to make my own. I am obsessed with creating new pieces, and I try to add at least one hand-woven piece a week to the store!
My goal with the store is to share my love of handmade gifts and art. I have a huge appreciation for handmade products, and I think it is so special to buy something that somebody spent hours making with their bare hands. Running my own business is something I have always done in some form, and always want to continue to do, so this store is a great way to prep for a bigger project I am working towards!

I appreciate all of your support so much, so I have a special discount code for all of my blog readers!

Have a great weekend!

Dress:American Eagle Bracelets:Alex and Ani

This week I had my best friend come and visit me for a few days, and it was so nice having her see my new home. I absolutely love where I live, and it was so wonderful to show her around my little town and this beach life that I have fallen in love with. I have always been someone who has been very emotionally effected by my environment and living situation, and I feel like where I am now really allows me to be happy and creative, and all of things that I should be right now in my life. I hope you can all find joy and happiness in your environment and that it makes you feel inspired!

My friend Nathan, who I mentioned a fews posts ago, took these photos! We went down to the beach in Ventura in the early evening and it just gave us the prettiest light! Boho dresses are always a win when it comes to beach photos people!

September Beauty Favorites

Monday, September 26, 2016

September is coming to a close (which is so hard to believe!), and in last month's beauty favorites post I said I was going to try to find some makeup that I really love to share with you guys! I definitely found some amazing products + a few tried and true products to share with you guys today! Because I work out on the water, and in the sun all day, I never wear makeup, so when I do wear makeup it has been fun to experiment with these new products I got! Let me know what your favorite beauty products were this month! 

This highlighter is beautiful + it's so affordable! I got mine at Ulta for around $4! It looks super pretty dusted on your cheek bones for a sublte glow! 
I love this product! You can use it as an eyeshadow palette, and the lighter shades work great for highlighting the smaller areas of your face! It's definitely a great dupe for the Bobby Brown shimmer bricks! I got mine at Ulta for around $7! 
This CC cream has been my favorite for years now! I really don't like wearing heavy makeup and the feeling of having a ton of product on my face. This product is super light and blendable, and has the perfect amount of coverage. Plus, it has SPF 20, which is a must for me! 
This is another go-to product for me! I have used this concealer for years, and I really think it's amazing! It's super smooth and they have tons of shades! Plus, it's only like $5! 
I got this lipstick this month, and I love it! I am always on the hunt for the perfect pink/nude, everyday color and I think this is a great option! The consistency is super creamy and it lasts on your lips for hours! 

Happy Monday! 


Endless Summer

Dress:Free People Bracelets:Alex and Ani

According to the calendar, today is the last day of summer, but we are still having gorgeous weather where I live. In Southern California the best beach months of the year are September and October, so I'm not planning on stopping the beach time and busting out the sweaters any time soon! 
These photos were taken last weekend by my good friend, Nathan! He is an amazing photographer! Him and I have been friends since junior high school, and I treasure his friendship so much. He is definitely one of those people who I can not see in years and then we can pick up where we left off! He is so talented, but more than that, he is such a kind, genuine, and wonderful human being and I am so lucky to be his friend! 
We took lots more photos, which I will be posting over the next few weeks, and I cannot wait to show you guys! The dress I am wearing in these photos is from Free People! It is an older style, but they always have the prettiest dresses! 

Check out Nathan's skills and contact him if you are interested in photos!

Pinspiration: Boho Living Room

Thursday, September 15, 2016

Decorating my apartment is definitely my favorite thing of all time to do! I feel like I should have gone to school for interior design because I love it THAT much! I'm obsessed with anything that has a cool, bohemian print or texture, and my place is slowly coming together. I never realized how hard ( and expensive ) it is to decorate a place from scratch when you live alone! So I am just picking up cool pieces here and there as I find them, and I am really loving how it is coming together so far! This week I found this GORGEOUS mustard yellow, 70s style arm chair at a thrift store that is in perfect condition, and it seriously makes my living room look amazing! Sometimes it just takes a little pop of color to make the room come alive! 
Here are some of my dream pinspiration pics for bohemian apartment decor! All of the boho pillows, textured rug, and plants make me so happy- I just love them!
