Remember when I said for each post I was going to put what make up I am wearing? That didn’t last long because I literally wear the same make up every day haha. I only switch up my blush and lipstick! Sometimes I put on some shadow but I think no shadow flatters me best. So if you missed what I wear everyday – here it is! Foundation: Revlon Photo Ready / Powder: Bare Minerals Matte Powder / Mascara: Covergirl / Blush: (today) MAC ‘Peachy Keen’ / Lipstick: MAC ‘Snob’ / Eye Liner: Covergirl - I am going to try to switch up my make up routine so I will let you know what new products I try and love but for now (and the past couple years) those are what have worked for me!
For those who saw my tweets about our little pup, here is an update. Chauncey got really really sick the other day and was throwing up and wouldnt eat anything. He just laid there all day long which isn’t normal for a puppy who usually bounces off the walls all day. We took him to the pet ER at midnight and had him tested for parvo which ended up being negative. The vet was really concerned though so we then had him put on an IV since he was so dehydrated from throwing up so much and not being able to eat or drink. By morning time he was a bit better and is slowly coming back to his normal self! It was so sad to see Chauncey’s sad little eyes when he was sick! We took him shooting and fishing tonight and he had his own little shooting ear muff things to block the sound of the gun and it was quite hilarious seeing him with giant ear muffs.
Have a good day everyone!

On Sunday we decided to take Chauncey fishing with us! It was so funny watching him splash around in the water – even though wet paws + dirt = a muddy muddy dog – and how are you supposed to not let your dog jump all over you and cuddle you?! So I went home covered in mud and very very wet
SHORTS: Forever 21 / SWIMSUIT TOP: Victoria’s Secret / HEAD WRAP: Nordstrom / SUNNIES: Miu Miu / BEACH TOTE: Target also love THIS one from Target
I have a tendency to lose things so I decided to only bring one pair of sunglasses with me on our vacation. I have been loving my new Miu Miu sunglasses since they seem to go with everything so I brought those – I am currently obsessed with sunglasses and its all I look at online. I just ordered a couple new cute ones that I am excited to show you guys – and they are VERY reasonably priced, which is always nice
We have a few more tropical vacations this Summer and I love beach accessories to throw on – especially hair wraps to throw on over partially wet hair that cannot be tamed – salt water makes my hair uncontrollable and so ratty! So after swimming I threw on my new starfish head wrap from Nordstrom and we got some (virgin) pina coladas and had a fun night watching the sunset together.
Thanks for reading – hope you guys have a good day!
One of the benefits of pretty much building Amber’s blog, is knowing all her passwords, having administrative access to all content as well as the ability to make changes. After all, we are husband and wife so there should be no secrets:) Speaking of no secrets, Amber is keeping one from you. She would never advertise this, and she’s asleep right now so there is nothing she can do about it, but today is her her birthday, which is why we are in St Croix! So I just thought you all should know…
Happy birthday sweetheart! You’re the love of my life! I hope you have the best day! I’m so glad that even when you’re 100, I’ll be spending your birthdays with you! Love you!
SWIMSUIT: Revolve Clothing OR in a different color at Net a Porter / HAT: F21
I am not sure how I was late in the game in finding out about Revolve Clothing.. but it has become my #1 new favorite store. I got this Adidas by Stella McCartney bikini from there and I am in love with it. It is good to have for sportier things you do (or just for the beach in general!) But I got it for when we go kayaking, hiking to waterfalls, fishing, and things like that since it is basically a sports bra you can swim in!
Our second day in St. Croix we woke up early and decided to go find these tide pools we heard were here on the island. We find out where to start the hike and we read it was a 45 min hike. We start hiking…. and hiking… and hiking. After about an hour of hiking up hill in the jungle we realize we have missed something. So we head back down and are almost back to are car and we see a sign.. its literally after 20 steps of starting the hike and its hidden on the right side and leads into even thicker jungle with signs for the tide pools- So we start on the right path and after about two miles it T’s off and you can go right or left… we decided to go right and that was a BAD idea. I am talking we were walking through literal jungle.. vines, endless trees, moss, cob webs, who knows what animals, the whole bit. We got to a point where we could see the tide pools but we were at a cliff and it was almost straight up and down and SO muddy. We decided to go for it and I slid down the entire way on my butt, scratching my arms on tree stumps and rocks the entire way down. I thought I was going to die!!! But we finally made it and it was worth it.
The water here is so blue and everything is SO green! I didn’t boost contrast or brighten or put filters on any of these photos- everything is just that colorful!
Anyways- love you guys and have a fun day!!!

David and I are currently in St. Croix and will be for the remainder of this week, and it is absolutely amazing here! We WERE supposed to be in Barbados but our trip took a turn the other day when I got done doing dishes and walked over to the living room couch.. To my dismay, I found David’s passport laying on the ground completely mutilated. (Chauncey’s doings) but he is just a puppy so I couldn’t be mad and it was my fault for leaving the passport on the couch.. I forget how big he is getting nowadays!
Anyways, this island is so amazing and reminds me a lot of my summer in Fiji with all of the thick jungle everywhere you go and roosters and frogs running around like flies. Here is the outfit I wore tonight for our evening on the island followed by David making homemade pasta for us in our little bed and breakfast – he is the best cook, ever!
Thanks for reading and hope you guys have a good Wednesday!!! xo
