Sunday's Best: Getting the most out of your wardrobe!

Hey Lovelies!


I have been enjoying my summer break to the fullest!  Making sure that every weekend is filled with something fun and fabulous! Stay tuned, pics are coming!  This particular weekend, I attended a graduation celebration at church for my cousin and this was my attire for the event!  I recently did a massive closet clean-out and  donated a lot and also rediscovered items that I felt needed more wear!  This top and this gorgeous skirt were two of them!  This is a total "shop my closet" look!  
 I have been in love with this skirt since the first time I laid eyes on it!  To think I wasn't going to purchase it until my brother convinced me to but I digress!  I plan on getting much more wear out of it!
 These heels are also one of my favorites!  They were a "Saturday Morning Steal" on ShoeDazzle several months ago and I absolutely love them!
 This was an absolutely gorgeous day by the way!  Not too hot, not too cold, and the sun was shining beautifully!  I love days like that!
 Top:  H&M
Skirt:  Express
Heels:  ShoeDazzle
So how is your summer so far?  Any big plans? I've got so much to catch you all up on so please stay tuned! 
 I'll be back soon and as always, thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fabulous week!

What's Cooking With Trice: Classic BLT ft. Hellmann's Mayo


Hey Dolls,

I recently received Hellmann's Mayonnaise from Influenster to try since they have revamped their bottle! I know that in the past I would waste mayo because I'd get frustrated trying to get it from the bottom corners of the jar and would just toss it.  Well, apparently I wasn't the only one because according to Hellman's this is part of the reason they've redesigned their bottle.  
This new bottle advertises that it will "squeeze out more" and that is exactly what it does.  It comes out pretty quick too but what I like most is the clean lock cap so there's no mess!
I made my healthier spin on the classic BLT!  I used 5-grain bread, spinach, uncured turkey bacon, tomatoes, and a little mayo on each slice of bread.
This sandwich was just as good as the BLTs my mommy would make for me as a kid!  DELICIOUS!

 Check out some of Hellmann's products including this new "squeeze out more" bottle and great recipes here!  
As always, thank you so much for stopping by!
XOXO

Quick Sand and Snorkeling (BUCKET LIST ITEMS)

Hey Lovelies!

 A few weeks ago, some friends and I decided to spend a Sunday afternoon snorkeling and canoeing, two things I have never done before but have always wanted to!
We went to the beautiful Silver Glen Springs in Ocala, FL!  The water was a very chilly 72 degrees so I put on the wet suit along with my snorkel gear!
Although the water was cold, I came out of the wet suit and swam in my bathing suit.  The water was crystal clear and there were so many cool fish and wildlife I was able to come up close and personal to!  I look forward to doing it again somewhere tropical!
Later on that day we rented a canoe and took a ride around the springs!  The sun was blazing so I put on all of my protective gear from sunscreen down to a hat and cover ups!

I was pretty excited to canoe especially when my friends fiance (the guy in the back) told me he would do all of the paddling! I was able to relax, take in the views, and snap my pictures of course!  That was so sweet of him!
In no particular order here is some of the things I saw!


 You can look right through the water to the bottom, it's so clear!

There are two of my friends, Christina and Ashley!  They had to paddle themselves...HA HA!
It was a beautiful day so there were a lot of people out in there own boats having a good time on the springs!
We saw a lot of Florida wildlife, including ospreys....
Hawks (I think)....
or maybe a herring???
Turtles...

AND....
A BABY GATOR!!!
  I was so scared the mother was close by that I almost tipped our canoe trying to convince my friend to turn the canoe around and get us out of there!!!

Snorkeling was great and so was the canoeing but the highlight of the entire trip was my experience in quick sand!!!  Now I will admit that I thought quick sand only existed in movies but the stuff is REAL!!!
 It looks like swirly puddles of water and there are bubbles that come up in the water where the sand is "Quick".  As soon as you step in you start to sink depending on how deep the pockets go.
As you see here I immediately sunk waist deep once I stepped into the quick sand!!!!  It's the weirdest feeling because your feet continue sinking the more you wiggle your toes and you feel nothing underneath them.  
IT WAS CRAZY!  
I was telling him "DO NOT LET MY HAND GO!"
We had a fantastic time that day!  I was excited I got to try new things!  I can't believe I've been living in Florida all these years and had never been snorkeling until now.  It's definitely something I look forward to doing again!
As always, thanks for stopping by!
