Alaska 2016

I'm so excited to share the pictures from my recent trip to Alaska! After spending weeks trying to decide where to go, we finally decided on Alaska. None of us have ever taken a trip like this one but it was a nice change from a typical beach vacation! Alaska is truly so beautiful...I mean it was hard not stopping to take pictures of the gorgeous scenery around every corner. 

After flying to Seattle to pick up my brother, we flew in to Anchorage where we stayed for two nights. 


On our first full day we drove from Anchorage to Seward where we took a cruise to see the glaciers. It was 6 hours and we got to see orcas, belugas, puffins, sea lions, and a bald eagle! The actual glacier was so cool to see...it was huge in size and had the prettiest blue tint. You could actually hear some parts of the glacier breaking off and falling into the water - it sounded like thunder!






The Aialik Glacier in the Kanai Fjord Peninsula!


Denali was on our must-see list so we decided to just stay in a hotel inside the National Park to get the full experience since the park was about 4 hours from Anchorage. Along the way, we stopped for lunch in Talkeetna, the cutest little town with so much charm and culture. 

Entering the Denali National Park!


My brother and dad's debut on the blog:)!






We hiked on our first day at Denali - doing the Mount Healy Overlook Trail which ended up being about 5 miles and a couple thousand feet of elevation! But we made it to the top and were greeted by some spectacular views.

The second day was a bit chillier when we headed out for our hike but it got warmer during the day. We did the Savage River Trail where we hiked along a river for most of the trip. 


Hey Rachel:)! 



Overall, we had an amazing trip - one we will never forget! If you ever get the chance to go to Alaska  you absolutely should!

Pink-spiration with Glossier

If you read the blog then you know just how much I love Glossier! I swear by their products and overall just love the brand as a whole. I have already gone through several of their products including the Balm Dot Com, Boy Brow, and the Milk Jelly Cleanser and continue to reorder! The team over at Glossier asked me to showcase how 'I do pink' and I couldn't have been more excited! Pink is a color that you will find me wearing about 90% of the time, especially in the summer. Whether it's my clothing, accessories, or makeup, you will most likely find the color somewhere in my look! 

I decided to create an inspiration board to show you just exactly how 'I do pink' or more specifically #glossierpink. I included some of my favorite Glossier products because just like the color pink, they've become a pretty important staple in my life. The cleanser is in my bathroom for either an easy makeup removal or part of my morning routine. For the perfect rosy pout I love to use the Rose Balm Dotcom. I was put on the waitlist for the Generation G lipstick but now that it is back in stock I think I might  definitely have to order the color 'Like'.

I have been following the #glossierpink Pinterest board for some inspiration, or should I say pink-spiration! Follow along to get some inspiration of your own!

POP SUGAR Must Have Box

If you missed my unboxing of this month's POPSUGAR Must Have box on my Instagram story then keep reading because I'm sharing all the products in today's post!

The POPSUGAR Must Have box is a monthly subscription box (valued at over $100) with amazingly curated products ranging from home, fashion, food, beauty, and everything in between!  I did a post on last month's Must Have box  but this month's might be my favorite! It was filled with summer goodies and when I opened it it made me want to throw a pool party!

I might have been most excited about this adorable inflatable swan!! I know I'm a little late hopping on the swan float but I'm so excited to use it!


Can we talk about these   embroidered emoji napkins?? I need to throw a dinner party soon to use them!
If this   pin isn't the cutest thing you've seen today then I don't know what is!! It's small enough to wear on a jacket - like my favorite denim one - but I could also see myself putting this on my backpack or lanyard!


This brow highlighter was also included and I've already incorporated it into my makeup routine! I use it as a highlighter on my brows and as an eyeshadow too!

This skinny scarf was definitely my favorite item! It's not something I would normally pick out for myself but I loved how it looked after trying it on! Add it to a simple outfit like jeans and a white top for an instant pick up!

Products Included:

If you love everything in this post then you'll love what POPSUGAR is going to send out next month! Plus, if you use the code SHOP5 you can get $5 off next month's box!
