Summer Adieu

Summer lovin’ had me a blast!

Summer may be long gone for you northern states, but in Florida, we’re still getting our tan on.
One of the benefits of living in the sunshine state,
is being able to wear a bikini almost year-round.
This two-piece neon beauty is available now for purchase at Laced by Lola!

Lolita

I’ve always been a nickname kind of gal.
I remember in high school, my friend Rachel and I would have nicknames for guys we liked.
Particularly one guy that we referenced in notes as “wonder boy”.
He was pretty dreamy.
In a high school crush kind of way.
Eventually our entire social circle began calling him by the same name.

I’m sure he would get a kick out of it today.

It’s weird how nicknames work… My sister and I call each other Lola.
One name, two people.
It’s been our nickname for years.
And over time it developed into a business venture;
Laced by Lola.

I went to ZARA a few weeks ago and stumbled upon this shirt and had to have it.
Not only does it represent the classic novel by Vladimir Nabokov,
but it reminds me that i’m the youngest Lola, and I wouldn’t change it for the world.

Musical Styling

Fun fact: It is nearly impossible for me to complete a task without music.
No, really.  It’s like I have some sort of special musical attention deficit disorder.
Whether it’s humming along to my favorite tune, or replaying my favorite
tracks on Spotify, I always have my stylish Frends headphones handy!

P.S. I’m currently obsessed with Break Free – Ariana Grande
What song can you not stop playing on repeat?

With love, from Kentucky

 As you may know, baseball season is well underway, so I recently traveled to Louisville to watch some minor league games.
This is not the first time that I’ve visited Kentucky and shared with you my snapshots.
This time though, I stayed nearby a quaint little spot called Bardstown
located just a few minutes from the historic downtown district.

Excuse the lack of outfit pictures, but just observe the beautiful surroundings instead! :)

I have always been an athletic person.  Whether it was playing volleyball, taking a spinning class, or doing CrossFit, I have always tried to mantain a healthy lifestyle.  However, when it came to my eating habits, I was never one to abide by “the rules”.  Now that i’m close to hitting the big 2-5 (moment of silence)… I have begun eating and drinking healthier.  One of the newest drinks I can’t get enough of is the Lifeway Kefir Cultured Milk Smoothies.  After my daily workouts, this has become my go-to nutritional snack.  Not only does it help me cool-off, but it helps me feel replenished after a hard WOD.

Now, we all know that healthier food choices may not always mean tastier food choices… That is definitely not the case when it comes to Lifeway Kefir Cultured Milk Smoothies.  These tasty concoctions are the champaign of dairy!  Lifeway Kefir contains 12 live and active probiotic cultures that support the immune system and balance digestive health.  Are you trying to eat gluten-free foods? Good news! Not only are the smoothies gluten-free, they do not contain any lactose or artificial sweeteners.  Lifeway also only uses milk that comes from happy cows that are not treated with any pesticides, and are grass fed and GMO free! :)

The best part about these smoothies are that they come in a variety of flavors like blueberry, peach and blueberry so you can try a different flavor for almost every day of the week!  The Lifeway Kefir Cultured Milk Smoothies are also conveniently available at my local Winn Dixie store.  Not only is my shopping experience always great at Winn Dixie, the sweet incentive of a smooth, tart and refreshing drink at the end of the day is enought to satisfy anyone’s tastebuds.

If you’re trying to make the transition to a healthier lifestyle and are looking for low-fat alternatives,
Lifeway Kefir Cultured Milk Smoothies are definitely the way to go!

Feeling Blue

Turquoise being my favorite color, i’m never opposed to wearing a similar shade of blue.
That being said, I’m definitely not one to be overly-coordinated when it comes to patterns.
In this instance I opted for contrasting prints of blue for a fun twist.

Would you rock this trend?
