Style Guide: Tory Burch Love - Summer 2015

Some beautiful Tory Burch finds for this weekend.  Here's their secret sale section with discounts up to 40% off!

The Most Selfless Person I Know

 On behalf of Chobani Flips #BreakYouMake project, I'd like to nominate someone who most deserves a break.  I'm happy to partner up with them and nominate my mother.  She has devoted her whole life to raising us and now tirelessly plays with my three children when she sees them.  She has battled breast cancer and other illnesses over the last 5 years yet never says no whenever we need help.  The highlight of her day is when she gets to FaceTime her beloved grandchildren.  You've got to love technology!  It makes staying in touch and seeing each other that much easier!  My mom loves to travel, so we always include her in our trips.  She enjoys teaching the children about exhibits in the museums and encourages them to eat their veggies.  Yes, she is that Grandma that will let them eat ice cream before dinner.  Isn't that just part of the Grandmother's Rights?  She voluntarily comes down to take care of us when we're sick, cooking for days just so that we have meals for a week when she leaves.  We all love her so much - we can't think of another person that deserves a break more than her!  

Who would you nominate?

Style Guide: Pineapple Inspiration and Gift Ideas

I love pineapples - one of my favorite fruits, it also signifies hospitality, a welcoming symbol, and friendship.  When we visited Hawaii a few months ago, we visited the Dole Plantation and learned so much about how they grow pineapples and the history behind the plantation.  Did you know that it takes a pineapple between 16-24 months to produce fruit?  And the plant is only good for 2 cycles of fruit before it is done producing!  All that work for those delicious spears of pineapple!  

Here are some of my favorite pineapple finds - hope you like them too!
