Plum Island

Plum_Island (1)

I can’t believe tomorrow it will May! This past weekend we took our first walk along the beach on Plum Island. It seems so surreal that spring is finally here. Sure the sand was a little chilly, but it felt fantastic to be outside without snowboots and a puffer coat. And aren’t the clouds amazing! I’d like to think the horrible winter was worth it, but I won’t lie there were moments I didn’t think this day would come! For months we battled mounds and mounds of snow. Our snowblower died mid-winter and mid-storm. There were weeks where I barely left my house and my main motivation for shoveling my front steps were out of concern for my postman more than anything else.

But spring is here! We saw about 10 other couples walking along on the chilly sand and met about 15 furry friends who were so excited to frolic in what I can only imagine were ice cold New England waters!

I have a busy spring ahead of me, so I don’t want to rush it too fast to summer! What are you looking forward to most this spring?  Let me know in the comments below! xx

Turquoise Tassels & Lace

Shirt: AliKat / Tank: Halogen / Jeans: Hollister, old (similar) / Shoes: Via Spiga
Earrings: Lisi Lerch via Design Darling / Rings: Bara Boeme & Nordstrom Rack

On Saturday I had so much fun attending the Blog Better Boston Blog Beautiful Conference. It was my third conference that the BBBos team has put on and it definitely didn’t disappoint. I was able to hang with my friends Jess, Lianna, and Noelle, and learn a few new tips and tricks about photography, Instagram, graphic design, and more!

Of course the day before the conference I was freaking out about what to wear, so during lunch I ran down the street to AliKat to check out some of their new arrivals. I spotted this lace shirt and knew it would be the perfect top to wear — the long sleeves are nice since its still cool out, but it was still springy enough to pair with my wedge sandals.

I had been saving these tassel earrings from Design Darling for months, just waiting for a special occasion to wear them! When I opted to not wear them to a wedding earlier this month, I knew BBBos would be the place to break them out!  They were a huge hit, but I must say my ears were a little sore the next day!

Prepping for summer with Beauty Protector

Beauty_Protector (1)

Spring is finally here, which means summer is just around the corner! Summertime is when my hair really takes a beating — sun, sand, salt water, chlorine — it all leads to severe damage. But I’m not letting it happen this year! I’m thinking ahead and using Beauty Protector to keep my fine hair as healthy as possible.

BeautyProtector1

Beauty Protector, sold exclusively on Birchbox.com, has a shampoo, conditioner, treatment mask, oil, dry shampoo, and my absolute favorite, the detangler. I use the detangler every time I shower, and sometimes if my hair is feeling particularly dry I’ll use the oil instead. The products are so hydrating and nourishing — and since my hair is so thin I only need to use a little bit.

Doug has been out of town on business, so its been the perfect time to have a little spa night for myself with the Treatment Mask. Its not everyday that I can sit on couch and watch girly TV marathons with conditioner in my hair!

Modern Girl on the Go with Lenovo

Lenovo_Yoga 3

I am a Modern Girl on the go — juggling a full time job, a coaching certificate program, my blog, as well as my home and social life. I am always looking for new tips, tricks and tools to help me get everything I need done. I know that I need the best in order to perform at my best! So I was super intrigued when Lenovo sent me their YOGA Tablet 2 Pro — designed by none other than Ashton Kutcher! (Who knew he was their product engineer?!) I took it for a spin to see if it could keep up to my busy life.

Last month I was having a little cabin fever from all of our snow, so I packed up the YOGA Tablet 2 Pro and headed to a nearby coffee shop to test it out! I loved how lightweight the tablet was, despite having a full 13.3 inch screen. It make my trek into town a little easier than  if I had packed a full-sized laptop.

The first thing I noticed was how bright and sharp the screen was. I couldn’t wait to read through my favorite blogs, scroll through Instagram, and watch movies on Netflix. I love its built in stand design and how sleek it looks. But I was super surprised to find that it also has a Pico projector built into the side, which would be awesome for presentations, meetings, and on-the-go movie nights!

Blogging with the YOGA Tablet 2 Pro has been really easy — with the Play Store at my disposal I’ve been able to download Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, WordPress, as well as any other app imiaginable that I may need.  With all the apps on my tablet I can keep up with Rules for the Modern Girl while I’m on the go, or even just at home on the couch!

I wasn’t able to attend New York Fashion Week this year in person, but I was able to live stream some of my favorite shows on the MBFW website using the YOGA Tablet 2 Pro. With 15 hours of battery life I could have watched them all day!

The YOGA Tablet 2 Pro definitely fits my needs as a Modern Girl on the go, but I’ll admit that sometimes I just want to lounge around on my indoor hammock flipping through Instagram. Thanks to my husband, Doug for catching this fun candid!

Pretty in Pink

Dress: Monique Lhuillier / Shoes: Coach (similar) / Lips: Nars Shiap

At my age, I have lots of weddings to go to. Some years there are more than others, but I always trust Rent the Runway for fabulous dresses. When I saw this one by Monique Lhuillier, I knew it was perfect for a spring wedding! The bright pink color was definitely my style, and I loved the textured floral pattern.
