August Vlog: South Lake Tahoe

By | 2017-04-05T11:45:15+00:00 August 22nd, 2016|MELSANV TV, Travel|

I've only been a Californian for 2 years now and we finally made it a point to get out to Lake Tahoe. I have to say that California has really opened my eyes to nature and has challenged me to do things outside of my comfort zone. Living in Florida practically all of my life, [...]

How to Manage a Blog While Working Full Time

By | 2017-04-05T11:45:15+00:00 July 20th, 2016|Advice, Business, Personal|

Oh shit. So you started a blog or small online business and you're thinking to yourself, "What did I get myself into?!" It's terrifying. A few years ago, (when I started this blog) I imagined myself blogging every other month or so. Casually uploading a photo of an outfit and imagined it getting 10,000 views [...]

Nikol Elaine Beauty Editorial / Flower Bomb

By | 2017-04-05T11:45:15+00:00 July 5th, 2016|Beauty, Editorial|

Today's beauty editorial is bitter sweet because it's the very last of our Nikol Elaine Beauty collaboration. Doing this collab challenged me in so many creative ways, but getting to work with these beauties made it worth everything. I could ramble all day about this editorial but to keep things simple: we wanted this last [...]

Timbuk2 His + Her Style

By | 2017-04-05T11:45:15+00:00 July 1st, 2016|Style|

Ever since my FEMME collab with Timbuk2, my FEMME bag has seen better days. When I mean I ran that thing into the ground, it sure gave a good fight. So when I had the chance to make a custom Timbuk2 backpack before my New York trip I jumped at the chance! I will admit, [...]

Are you ready for more beauty goodness?! We're back with the second edition of our Nikol Elaine beauty editorial.

Style 76: H&M Bustier + Skirt with Appliqués

By | 2017-04-05T11:45:15+00:00 June 28th, 2016|Style, Style Finds|

HOLY SUMMER. IT. IS. HOT! Last weekend, I took all but 2.2 seconds to realize that I needed this H&M set in my life. I used to start my Saturday routine with coffee and finding myself lost in a little retail therapy... cue in #weddingbudget and I've been hungry for all kinds of shopping that [...]

Bare Minerals Live in the Vineyard

By | 2017-04-05T11:45:15+00:00 June 27th, 2016|Events|

Back in April, I got the chance to attend Live in the Vineyard with the bareMinerals team. Not only did we get a little tour of Odette Estate Winery (which just opened and has an interior to die for) but we had a beautiful dinner while being seranated by American Idol winner, Nick Fradiani. I [...]
