Necessities of de-stressing.

I have SO many exciting things coming up! And with exciting things comes stress. I am taking off to Hawaii today for some much needed relaxation! I'm the type of person that is always busy, always planning things and always saying yes. Sometimes it can become a bit daunting doing it all. Which lead me to decide I'm going to do my best to de-stress on my trip to Hawaii, so I came up with a couple of necessities in order to de-stress on vacation:

-Don't worry about what you have to do after your vacation, while you're on vacation-
There's nothing worse than coming home from a vacation feeling like you didn't get a vacation at all because you were too busy worrying about what you have to do when you get home. Be present, don't miss what's in front of you. It's okay to let your vacation take priority over thinking about 'real life' for a bit.

 -Take time to do something for yourself-
Along with a spa day in Hawaii, I have some shoots set up, for modeling & photography! Although these are both careers of mine I am going to be doing something creative that I am passionate about. I also picked up a GoPro so I'm excited to try out videography! I'm also planning on eating seafood & fruit, even if it means splurging on lobster everyday! Take the time to do something each day that you wouldn't have the luxury of doing for yourself at home!

Look, if I were to completely unplug while on vacation it would make me have a full on panic attack. But even if you just unplug for a little bit each day while you are on vacation it'll help you to enjoy it that much more. My plan is to kind of get back in touch with bettering myself. I'm going to stay unplugged during my morning workouts (yes no music for me) & I'm also going to be reading some books! One is #GirlBoss & the other is More Than The Tattooed Mormon. Spiritually I feel like I've kind of been slacking or 'going with the motions' in certain areas, I've been wanting to read Al Fox/Carraway's book for awhile now so I figured why not start on my trip?! I feel like reading this book is going to be a starting point in reminding me to keep my habits within the gospel while the right intentions/motivations!

Finally, just some necessities for being in Hawaii. 

Floppy Hat: totally hoping I can pull it off! 
Swimsuits: This cute swimsuit is from Breeze Boutique (We may or may not have a giveaway coming up, hint hint)
Instax: Can't go anywhere without my Polaroid.
Dry Shampoo: Because you know, it's a must.
Books: Because it gives me something to do on the plane.
Snacks: I cannot go ANYWHERE without my Graze snacks! They're so yummy! Use code: LEXIC7Q4P to get your first box FREE!!

The Unexpected.

Something happened last summer that was completely unexpected. I became obsessed with one pieces. Just a little backstory, I've always thought one pieces were hideous, I own about 32 bikinis and when I had to buy a one piece in order to hot tub at my apartment complex in Provo I was mad.

But then I found a retro one piece & fell in love. It made me look tall, it was modest & unexpectedly I felt confident & even sexy in it. That's the key, you've got to find a one piece that you feel good in, otherwise there is no point. Don't get me wrong I still wear bikinis but the fact that I have the option to choose a one piece that I look good in is awesome. A lot of people have opinions when it comes to swim suits & modesty. Heres my two cents....I've always believed that what I wear does not define how modest I am as a person. But I found that I was in a couple of situations where I was super glad that I was wearing a one piece. For example, when I was wake surfing in bear lake with a bunch of guys. I don't know about you but when I'm in a bikini sometimes the top or bottom have a mind of their own...and nobody wants to be searching for their bikini in a lake around a bunch of guys! haha

I got the chance to team up with RAD Swim & they have THE cutest one pieces & tankinis! Check them out! Trust me on this one, go out & find a single one piece that you feel confident in & buy it. You won't regret it!

If you have some swimmers you'd like photos of in Hawaii (modeled by me and photographed on another model by me) send an email to I'm looking to collaborate with some swim companies!

I'm not kidding you when I say that I am obsessed with her lip kits! I've been trying to get them for months but they sell out like crazy so I can't begin to tell you how excited I am! The liner and matte lipstick are the perfect combination & the shade Mary Jo is a bright & fun red! Red is my favorite lip color to wear! If you want to go bold this is the way to do it! Makeup wise I always love doing a super simple eye when I have a bold lip, but it's also gorgeous paired with a brown smokey eye for a more sexy look!

Because who doesn't need a little revamping?

I've decided to revamp my blog. Not only because it's been forever since I've blogged, but because it is an escape for me. I love sharing and I love writing so why not get more serious about my blog right?! I started this blog a couple of years ago and wanted it to be strictly inspirational and spiritual. But after some thinking, various input over the years and some curiosity I've decided to make my blog be lifestyle, fashion and inspirational based.
Photocred: @littlebrades {}
The reason behind the lifestyle aspect: Some might know this, some might not. My life is not normal, nor will it ever be. I was born premature. As in born long before my due date, with little to no chance of survival. But against all odds,  13 surgeries and counting, multiple health issues I am alive. There is no feeling 'normal' on a day to day basis for me, my 'normal' would probably seem pretty odd to a lot of people.

I am not telling you this because I am looking for sympathy, I am laying it all out there because I know that I am not the only one who is living life this way and I want to raise awareness about it. My lifestyle is just different and I want to share that! From stories, to recipes, to health trials and successes.

The reason behind the fashion aspect: I have always been passionate about fashion, even before I became a model. But lets be real, the world doesn't need another fashion blogger. There are so many whom I absolutely love and follow on a daily basis but sometimes its hard to keep up with them all! I just want to share my cute outfits every so often, what girl doesn't?!

The reason behind the inspirational/spiritual aspect: This is where my love for blogging began. My faith in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is what my life is based off of. It ties everything together. So of course I'm going to keep this aspect as a part of my blog because it's a lot of who I am!

If I'm being honest I have no clue how many people will be reading my blog or if it will even matter, sharing a lot of what I have and will share leaves me vulnerable and a little nervous. What I am sure about is this: If my blog inspires even one person, it will be worth it. Wether it be via my lifestyle, via my fashion or via something spiritual, it will be worth it to me!

So if you'd like to know more subscribe or simply follow along! My next post will be giving an insight to my lifestyle & how being premature contributes to that!
