Hope everyone had a great start to 2017! Have you made a New Year’s resolution yet? One of my goals for the New Year is to be more organized — in all aspects of life! No one likes clutter, which is why I love purchasing accessories that are useful, stylish, and won’t end up in the bottom of my junk drawer.
No matter your resolution, these tech accessories will help you appreciate the little things in life — and may come in handy when you least expect it!
New Year’s Eve is right around the corner, have you picked out your celebratory ensemble? This is the first NYE with Kirra, which will make things a little different than any other New Years we’ve had. But, there is no excuse to skimp out on looking fab while ringing in 2017!
I’ve put together some of my favorite New Year’s Eve pieces — some are fancy, others are a little more casual — but ALL of these will guarantee a stylish New Years, no matter your plans!
I started Prey Swim almost 3 years ago — I was always on the hunt for the perfect suit but couldn’t seem to find it. So, after running the idea by a few friends, I decided that I wanted to learn all about the swim industry and explore the possibility of starting a line of my own.
To be completely honest — we had a lot of set backs getting this line to where it is today. But, I have learned SO much because I’ve been involved in every step of this process. I knew I wanted to create a line that would have something for everyone. My goal was to create high quality swimsuits that are stylish, trendy, and a confidence booster for women of all shapes and sizes.
One of the things I love most about this line is that you can (basically) get two swimsuits for the price of one because every suit is reversible and has interchangeable straps for different looks and chest support. Some of the styles are a bit more fashion forward — like the Duck Dive Bottoms that have suspenders (the butt bra suit haha!). But, I think every girl needs a boyfriend suit, family suit, pool party suit, and tanning suit, and that is what I took into consideration while designing, as well.
This may be the first Prey Swim collection, but I hope you all continue to follow my journey to see what else we have in store! Every collection will be inspired by my travels and love for different cultures, and I can’t wait to share everything with you. Stay tuned:)
With the holidays right around the corner, there is only one thing on my mind: DESSERT!
The delicate, delicious winter dessert recipe was passed along by my friend Neda Varbanova from Healthy with Nedi! This dessert is loaded with heart healthy fats and high-fiber content, meaning it is the perfect blend of healthy & delicious. An apple crumble is a great dessert to whip up for holiday guests — you can prepare and bake it early in the day, then heat it up just before serving! HINT: For an extra treat, add vanilla ice cream (Nedi’s favorite is Luna & Larry’s Coconut Bliss!)
