Hi Friends!

Anyone remember me? BECAUSE I’M BACK! The hubs and our friends, the Mitchell’s, just returned from a fabulous vacay! We spent 6 nights and 7 vibrant days on the sunny beaches of Negril Jamaica. It was a relaxing vacation and I can’t WAIT to share all of our pictures from our island getaway… but I can’t just yet, I’m having a hard time narrowing them down. All I can say, is that although our time was spent laying in the sand we still got our fare share of water activities in… skiing, wake boarding, hobiecat rides, water biking, sea kayaking, NIGHT snorkeling, sign seeing, drinking, swimming, eating, sunning, reading. My goodness – just total FUN! Everything that vacay should be!

Sad to leave the sunny beaches and the down to earth Jamaicans but so glad to be home in Charlotte.

Nicola and I on our very last day.

On a side note… thanks again to Carmen for the AWESOME posts last week featuring NAIL TRENDS, BATHROOM DECOR and PERFUME !! Did y’all LOVE um or what?!

On another side note! I cannot WAIT to PUMP UP MY BLOGGING! Lately, I’m not going to lie… I’ve been lacking and after a kick in the bootay vacay I’m ready to tackle this and I’ve missed my blog, my creative outlook more than ever!

More to come, friends.

Much luv,

 I’m so excited to have Carmen as my guest blogger while I’m sunning in gorgeous Jamaica. For those that don’t know Carmen, she’s a super gal and somebody that has been a special part of not only my life but my husbands life. Carmen and her husband, Louie we’re some of John’s first friends… They’ve and now “we’ve” held on tight to the friendship! Both Carmen and I share the same love for interiors, fashion, beauty and products. I swear we have the same taste! Put the fashionista part aside, she’s also a beautiful person on the inside and she possesses the best insight on life. Might I add, she’s smart too… like really, really smart!  Carmen has an amazing sense of style and I’m so excited to have her blogging! She worked hard on these posts and I think they are by far some of my fav’s – if you would, shower her with love and leave her a little comment! 🙂

Without further ado, I now present you…

Miss Carmen!

Lots of love, LRT
