Summers are for road trips, right? Last weekend we headed down to a cute little beach town called Carmel. The last time we were there I believe I was 7-8 months pregnant with our son. I felt surreal and exciting to revisit with him now he’s walking and running everywhere.

On our way to Carmel, we spotted this super pretty field. I have a thing for golden fields, I’m telling you. So we stopped and took some photos, and the photos couldn’t have come out any more dreamy. :)

And on a more exciting note, I’m partnering with ASOS to share my favorite travel style this summer! Kicking off our collaboration is this two-piece playsuit. It’s absolutely adorable and it comes in petite sizes (yay for me!). It’s light, easy-breezy and has a charming boho vibe to it.

Secretly, I have always wanted to be a boho bride. Since our wedding anniversary is coming up, I feel inspired to relive our special day in a dream boho dress. If this dress looks familiar to you is because I’ve worn it before for my maternity photoshoot. It’s such a gorgeous that it would be a shame to just wear it once, right. Every time I gaze at this dress, my heart starts to flutter and I imagine the next time I’d wear it again. It’s just so pretty.

To complete our boho look, I was adorned with florals from Flower Story. Seriously, how romantic and stunning are these floral pieces? If you’re in the Bay Area and needing floral arrangement for a special occasion, Kim from Flower Story is your girl! She’s so talented and I absolutely love everything she creates.

how to get healthy hair

New Dove Regenerate Nourishment Collection
Every woman has her favorite feature. For me, it has always been my hair. Up until my first child, I’ve always considered myself lucky to have healthy, long thick hair. About six months after I gave birth, my luck ran out I supposed. Coupled with a drop in hormone level and experimentation with bleaching (I’m a sucker for baylayage treatments), my hair slowly became dry, brittle and thin. I figured the problem would resolve itself if I did nothing, but months passed by and it had only gotten worse. One night after coming out of the shower and saw a huge trail of hair left behind, I knew it was time to get serious and find a solution before my hair all falls out completely! One of a handful of products I tried was the NEW Dove Regenerative Nourishment Collection for color treated hair. Having read great things about this collection, I was curious to try. After two weeks of using the shampoo, conditioner and serum daily, I started noticing a positive change. It usually takes a month or two for me to notice any significant difference with most brands, but with Dove Hair the results came much faster. I can actually comb through my hair without struggling with tangles. It also feels softer and more nourished with moisture.

Back on track again, I decided to treat myself to a new hair cut. It’s been so long since I wore my hair this short, but I’m loving the look. I feel so much lighter!

If you’re looking for a hair transformation without a breaking a bank, stop by Target and grab a Dove Regenerative Nourishment Collection. Trust me, your hair will thank you. :)
