The Classic Ignite Tan and Black Bikini

The Classic Ignite Tan and Black Bikini



Bikini: Classic Tan and Black Bikini

Ok so this bikini has become a true staple of mine! The fit is unreal. The top has a great shape for minimal tan lines, while the bottoms are adjustable to be absolutely stunning on any body style!

Ignite is well known for its CBD products but is truly changing the game with its apparel! I highly recommend anything they have to offer!! Click the link above to snag your gear!




Im back!! And starting back with a bikini!

Bikini : Teeny B Bikinis

If you have ever seen my instagram (My Instagram) then you know its no secret I have a love for bikinis! So of course, my first post back, is going to be about one!

This mermaid Teeny B Bikini is one of my all time favorites! The silver with nude color is so pretty, pictures don’t do it justice, and the fit is incredible. One thing I love about Teeny B is they look great on any body style. I have never put on one of their bikinis and not loved the fit!

I do recommend sizing up in the bottoms if you feel uncomfortable with a small fit. There is truth in the “teeny”, but they also offer more coverage if thats what you are looking for. Personally, I’m ok with the teeny fit!

So grab this bikini and head out for the spring/summer seasons! I don’t pack for a trip and not have at least 2 Teeny Bikinis in my bag!



DermaBlade and HydraFacial Refresh!

DermaBlade and HydraFacial Refresh!

Medical Spa: A Beautiful You Medical Spa

I know the trend right now is the all so popular DermaBlade and HydraFacial! So I decided to try them myself.

I started with the DermaBlade treatment. What this does is it takes off the peach fuzz and top layer of dead skin on your face. Its like a super exfoliating treatment. This is a pain free treatment and it leaves your face feeling extremely soft and smooth. I highly recommend having this done by someone you trust, and A Beautiful You is definitely one of the only places I trust for this treatment.

I followed with the HydraFacial . A HydraFacial starts with a deep clean, moves to a peel, then extracts any junk from your face, and ends with hydration and added peptides to promote glowing skin! You can really feel this treatment working during your session. Also there is a little container of your dirty water at the end where you can see all of the dead skin and debris that was removed from your face (I know yuck).

A Beautiful You follows the treatment with either red light or blue light therapy to help calm the face, or treat acne, and fine lines and wrinkles, depending on which light is most appropriate for your skin.

They then top everything off with moisturizer and sun screen to make sure those harmful rays don’t hit your now delicate fresh skin when you leave the building.

All in all this is one of my favorite treatments! With all of the traveling, and work that I do, my skin really suffers, and this treatment has changed the game for me!

As always if you have any questions feel free to ask!




Holiday Entertaining with 4Memphis Magazine 💙

Holiday Entertaining with 4Memphis Magazine 💙


Kitchen Confidential – 4Memphis Magazine Issue – 4Memphis Magazine

I was super excited when I was asked to do another issue of 4 Memphis Magazine, especially since this was a holiday entertaining issue! I had the pleasure of shooting with Chef Erling Jensen, and Chef David Krog. which was a fun twist for me since I usually am just solo on these projects.

What I loved about this shoot was stylist Augusta Campbell pulled fab pieces (Gucci, Valentino, Jason Wu), and styled them in ways that represent a great holiday entertaining look. Also, what’s great about these styles are you can go pick these pieces up in local Memphis stores, or call them and have them shipped to you!

In this issue you can also find recipes, more must-have fashion, and information about what’s going on in Memphis!

As a Memphis native, I love being a part of things in this city, and 4 Memphis Magazine is one of my favorite publications to work with!

You can click my link to see the issue! I hope you love it as much as I do.

Walking In Memphis 💙

Walking In Memphis 💙



Shirt: LNA Jeans: Blank NYC (similar AGoldE) Jacket: Kendall and Kylie Watch: California Watch Co Belt: Gucci Bracelets: David Yurman Backpack: YSL

So this weather has had its crazy ups and downs of chilly, to warm! This indecisive weather has been hard to deal with and I needed a go to outfit, for a casual day “walking in Memphis”! I wanted something comfy yet cute! So I came up with this little get up.

For my under layer, (which is cute on its own) I did a basic LNA tee, and my Blank NYC boyfriend shorts. Easy to throw on, and tackle the day in!

I am a big fan of LNA. Their tees are super soft, and versatile. They have all different styles from basic, to jazzed up! You cant go wrong with their items.

I love a great boyfriend denim short, or pant. I got these shorts on sale at Indigo (in Germantown, TN) for $30!!! Insert gasping faced emoji here! Blank NYC is already a super reasonable brand, but I lucked out finding these at such a great sale price! Indigo is always having great sidewalks sales, so I highly recommending stopping by if you’re in the area!

I threw on this trench for a little added warmth! Lately, the days can start out cold and end up hot! So with this piece, I can easily take it off if I don’t need the added layer! I love this trench. It really can go with anything.

Lets talk accessories!

I am constantly running around like crazy! I travel so much for work, that when I am home I take every minute I can to get things done! When I came across this YSL backpack I knew it was for me. I love throwing everything in this and just running around the city! If you have been thinking about jumping on the backpack trend, I highly recommend it!

Ok and who doesn’t love the Gucci belt craze? I was never much of a belt person until I purchased my Gucci’s. The fit of these belts are unreal. Also, you can add a huge pop to an outfit with something as simple as a belt.

For jewelry I went with my go to Yurman collection. The turquoise piece was a gift from an ex (oops should I say that?), and it actually is one of my favorite go to little bracelets. I pop it on for a little added color here and there! You cant go wrong investing in Yurman. They are the sturdiest pieces I have ever come across, and they really can last you a lifetime.

My watch is California Watch Co. This is a new brand I have come across! They have some gorgeous pieces, at super reasonable prices! I am definitely a fan! (Of course I still love my Rockwell Watches, I’m not turning my back on them! Just changing it up a bit.)

I paired this with a little pair of white booties, but you could do sneakers or whatever works best for you!

I love this outfit for strolling through the city! I feel like it looks great, without sacrificing comfort, and I am all about being comfortable!

Hangout Fest ✌🏼

Hangout Fest ✌🏼



Event : Hangout Music Festival Company: Monster Energy

So sometimes my work takes me to really fun places! I had the pleasure of going to Hangout Music Festival with Monster Energy and it did not disappoint!

With a line up of bands like Halsey, The Chainsmokers, Kendrick Lamar, Awolnation, The Killers, Logic, T-Pain, NF, and so many more, this was definitely a music fest worth attending.

There are two main stages, and multiple ones in between, so you really have your choice of what you want to see! Each main stage plays about an hour set, then you can walk across the grounds and see the next headliner! It’s a great layout, and makes everything super accessible.

If you need a break, or just want something to eat, you can hang out in the middle of the grounds where there is a Ferris wheel, shopping, and more food than you could possibly imagine. I would plan on spending the day on sit! This event has everything you need Ian one place. Also, if you want to hear a couple of cool DJ’s and have a place to sip drinks, during one of the breaks, you can stop by the Monster Energy Beach Club.

From one show to the next, you do not get bored at this event!

I am going to have to rave about Kendrick Lamar for a second. I was born and raised in Memphis, TN, so rap / hip hop is something I grew up listening to often. I have always been a big fan of Kendrick Lamar, but his live set was unreal! From M.A.A.D. City to Humble, I found myself singing along to every song. If you have the chance to catch him in concert, I highly recommend going!

This was definitely one of my favorite events I have been to this year! I give Hangout Music Festival a giant thumbs up!

Here are my top tips for Hangout Music Festival!

  1. SUNSCREEN! I wore 30+ everyday and still ended up with a mega tan! So that means the sun is super hot.
  2. Wear comfortable shoes. Be prepared to walk around, and dance the night away! Wear something you know you won’t have any problems with.
  3. Plan for the event in advance. Book rooms, save up for the fun, get your passes early!
  4. Look in to the event. Figure out where you want to park, who you want to see, etc.
  5. Come by the Monster Energy beach club and drink Monster! 🙂

I also have a contact me section on my blog, and I am always here to answer any questions you may have about my posts, or the event!

Double Cleansing with Julep Beauty 💋

Double Cleansing with Julep Beauty 💋

Product : Julep Beauty

When I first came across the Julep Beauty products, I knew immediately I wanted to give them a try. With two Allure Best of Beauty ratings, and a couple of great reviews from friends, I decided these products worth worth a shot, and believe me when I say I was not disappointed!

I guess the big question is “Why double cleanse?”. Have you ever taken off your makeup, and then washed your face with a washcloth and there was still makeup residue left on the washcloth? Double cleansing can help get rid of that residue! It also helps exfoliate, and creates soft glowing skin!

If you are not wanting to purchase the entire set, or you have products you already like, I highly recommend the Charcoal sponge! I find myself grabbing it even when I dont have time for a full regimen. It is a great product for just cleansing the face when you’re in a hurry!

I also love the Boost Your Radiance oil. It is an extremely light weight oil, that gives hydration, and glow!

I have very picky skin! I am constantly battling with milia, and I have to be careful with the products I use on my face! These products keep my skin happy!

More skin care loves to come!

Sunflowers and a Bikini 🌻

Sunflowers and a Bikini 🌻


Swimwear : Teeny B Bikinis

I posted this bikini on my Instagram and the DM’s came pouring in asking where it was from! So I decided to do a quick blog post about it!

This is the Sunflower Print bikini! Also comes in a one piece. The bottoms are a very flattering “cheeky” bottom! The top is a banded triangle top that has an extremely comfortable fit.

Why do I rave about Teeny B all of the time? Their swimsuits fit me like a glove. I don’t think any brand Ive worn, fits me like theirs does! Yes, I do model for them, but that is not why I love them. Their fabric is light and soft, and their cuts are just right.

No matter what body style you are, Teeny B will have something for you. From thongs to full coverage, from bikinis, to one pieces. I highly recommend this brand!

For all of the girls asking about this particular swimsuit, click the link above and it will take you right to it!

The Perfect Jumpsuit

The Perfect Jumpsuit



Jumpsuit : The Jetset Diaries Shoes: Pedro Garcia Watch: Rockwell Watches

When I bought this jumpsuit, I had no idea how much I was going to love it.

I am 5’9″ with legs for days, so rompers and jumpsuits are pretty much a no for me usually.

This TJD jumpsuit fits me like a glove!

The pants are long enough, that even with my height, I can wear tall wedges! I love the detailing on this jumpsuit as well. The top is a halter strap, but could be worn strapless, with cut outs to just show enough to make it pop and be unique! The back of the top has stretch to accommodate chest size, but still give a nice fit.

A jumpsuit like this is a great buy! I have had a lot of people ask me “where would you wear a jumpsuit?”. I would wear it for a photo shoot, a dinner, a night out with friends, a casual event, a fashion week event, etc. I mean jumpsuits really are versatile. You can dress them up or dress them down, your choice!

For accessories on this look, I chose Pedro Garcia Teodora wedges, my Daisy London bracelet (I never take it off), and Rockwell Watches rose gold Commander watch. Sometimes I feel like less is more. Adding just a few rose gold items with this look, gave it a little something, without taking away from the power of the jumpsuit!

This is definitely a piece that will stay in my closet for years to come!
