Stripes in the sun ☀️ 

If you’re ever in downtown Tampa and looking for a cute date idea, go to the Riverwalk. It’s such a relaxing walk and the scenery is to die for. At the end of the walk, there’s a fine arts museum that you can go to. (You have to pay for admission obviously) Also, this place is one of the best places to go watch the sunset 🌅. *fellas, you’re welcome”

Sunsets in Tampa, FL 🌴

Tampa, you have my heart ❤️. From the beautiful sunsets to Fuzzy’s Taco Shop. (Let me just tell you, if you’ve never tried Fuzzy’s – you’re not living life.) The chicken nachos is TO DIE FOR. 

Anyways, on my way to Tampa I stopped on Sunset Bridge and watched the sunset. (How ironic huh) Check it out!

I’m officially 23!

About a month ago, I officially turned 23! I’m not sure how I feel about this age because according to Blink 182 – nobody likes you when you’re 23.

But I guess Blink was wrong because some of my friends came out and celebrated my special day with me. (yay friends for showing up, even though I planned this 3 days before!) For the past 2 years, I’ve been having my birthday bash in Morristown, New Jersey. If you have never been there before, think of it as a small NYC town, except on a much smaller scale. There are a few modern bars & restaurants in the center of Morristown & it’s definitely a popping place at night.

Since my birthday is in January, it’s FREEZING out at night. So on the night of my birthday bash, I went for a more comfy-chic look (I also came straight from work in the city). Most of my outfit is from the most affordable yet chic store in the world – H&M. (LOVE)

Let me know what you think about my birthday bash outfit & what is your go-to comfy chic store?

Not your average Brunch 

Ah, summertime – best time of the year for getting brunch with your girls / family / significant other. However, brunches can get pretty expensive if you go out every weekend, so here are the steps to create the BEST DIY BRUNCH DAY EVER!

First, you’ll need to create a cute & fun invite to send out to all your friends – making it super official. There are a few ways you can create that perfect invite:

  1. Check out Paperless Post for ready to send custom invite instead, making your life simple while making you look chic. My favorites on the site are: Cucumber Lemon Vodka, Mother’s Day Brunch & Pop the Bubbly.

    Mother’s Day Brunch Invite

    Pop The Bubbly Invite
  2. If you’re feeling EXTRA creative and want to create your own, try using Canva for an easy DIY “hand crafted” card! Just choose the “Card” template and start designing. (They also have already made cards as well)

Now that you’re all done with your invites, it’s time to send them out and wait for their RSVPs. In the meantime, you need to start preparing the menu – the main event of brunch. Here are a few of my favorite dishes:

  1. Eggs Benedict with Shortcut Hollandaise
  2. Nutella Stuffed Pancakes
  3. Cranberry French Toast with Mascarpone
  4. Twisted Sticky Caramel-Pecan Roll
  5. Tomato-Cheddar Strata with Broccoli
  6. Overnight Savory French Toast

And now onto the mimosas

  1. Watermelon Agua Fresca Mimosas
  2. Pineapple Coconut Champagne
  3. Raspberry cream mimosa
  4. Tangerine Sorbet Champagne Floats
  5. White Cranberry Mimosa 
  6. Lemonade Mimosa with Bloody Orange

Lastly, time to decorate the shiz out of your place to make it the best brunch ever. The best place to find the best decor idea is on…PINTEREST! (How basic)

Blooming pink 🌸 || OOTD


Shirt: Charlotte Russe // Pants: Mango // Shoes: Payless // Bag: Kate Spade 

These days, summer feels like spring most of the time – which I’m not complaining at all. I’m definitely enjoying the fact that I can still wear jeans and not be sweating like crazy. 

The look I have on is for my cousin’s baby shower, who I am SO excited to meet! I picked this outfit, because it’s 1. It’s Appropriate 2. It’s super cute. Pink and white is my favorite combo for any outfits, and to think I used to hate pink. The shirt has a lace pattern over it, so it adds that girly effect. The jeans are boyfriend jeans so they’re extremely comfortable but still looking cute. My shoes are the perfect height, where you’re able to get that extra boost of height but not too high where you’d be tripping all day – and really comfortable. Lastly the bag was a gift from a family friend and it just adds a pop of blue to my whole outfit. 

Much love,

Veee

White Sneaker Trend


Source: Google.com 

This white sneaker trend has been around for a while now, and I’m definitely late in the game. But, I absolutely LOVE this trend. While walking around Philly a few days ago, I saw a couple of people rocking jeans with white sneakers and I fell in love…again.

Here’s a few pairs of white sneakers that are affordable, yet trendy:

Converse sneakers, $75, net-a-porter.com

Adidas sneakers, $80,nordstrom.com

Supra sneakers, $60,suprafootwear.com

What’s YOUR favorite pair of white sneakers??

DIYs Gift Ideas | #HolidaysWithVeee

During the holiday season, most people ask for a lot of materialistic items that they desire. I’m not suggesting that is a bad thing, but sometimes, it’s better to ask for less and be more humble. Often, it’s easy to like items that have a price tags on it. But, studies show that most people are happier receiving handmade DIY gifts that are tailored to them specifically.

I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorite YouTubers and their Holiday DIY Gifts! These gifts are suitable for family, friends, and even boyfriends! I gotchu girl!

Coordinates Collection |#HolidaysWithVeee

For those who don’t know what the Coordinates Collection is, you can click here to check it out. They’re essentially a jewelry company that engraves coordinates that are special to you and your significant other, onto a bracelet, ring, etc. I personally have not gotten the Coordinates Collection for myself, but here’s my thought on the idea.

I think the whole brand itself is a great idea, especially for couples where their husband or wife is in the military. That way, they can always have a piece of their home with them at all times. But, it’s also a great idea for couples that are in a long distance relationship.

Long distance relationships are already hard on its own, why not get a piece of jewelry to help you feel a little bit closer to one another? The only downside is, this customized jewelry is a little bit on the pricey side. The price ranges from $150 – $2000. So, purchase as you will!

Happy Holidays! #HolidaysWithVeee

Livin’ that High Line Life


  

“Let’s go to a historic railroad in NYC, and walk around all day in the blazing hot sun!!” – my mom. As those words were coming out of her mouth, I remembered my dad, sister, and I looked at each other, then looked at her, and said “NO” But, somehow she convinced us to all go and…it was fun!

The scenery is beautiful, from the historical railroad to the magnificent art on buildings. Did I also mention that it’s definitely a place where every instagrammer should go?

Have you ever been there? If so, what did you do?
Much Love,

Veee

Give me some love!
