Messy topknots seem so easy and quick, but that isn’t always the case. The messy ones eventually fall down if you have really long hair, or it just doesn’t look messy enough and a little too polished. I set out on a messy-ish topknot mission about a year ago- I wanted it to stay in/up all day, but not be so ballerina-bun perfect. Friends, I finally figured it out and it only takes 2 minutes or less! Keep reading for all of my must-have products and a video tutorial that will help you achieve the perfect “messy-ish” topknot!Read More
As some of you may know, Mr. Jones and I spent a blissful 8 days in Southern California for Christmas. It was so much fun and the weather is absolutely gorgeous. I mean, 65 and sunny during the "winter"?! #weathergoals! For the first time in FIVE years, Mr. Jones was able to spend Christmas with his entire family! It was an unforgettable holiday and I wanted to share some of my memories with you (and some super exciting news!) as well as some restaurants, hotels, and places to see in sunny SoCal!Read More
It's that time of year again when a lot of us start going back to the gym, drinking smoothies, and become more healthy people! If you're anything like me, you might have over indulged a bit over the holidays and aren't feeling too great about yourself. That's when tunic sweaters like this come to the rescue. Not only are they super comfortable, but they also cover up more than usual and that's just what I need for a few weeks while I bust my booty at the gym!
This tunic sweater in particular is amazing because it's made of soft jersey material and feels like wearing a t-shirt. Pair it with some stretchy skinny jeans, and you're all set to feel great while accomplishing whatever health goals you may have for 2016!
Speaking of fitness goals in the new year, I wanted to share a few tunes with you that really amp up my sweat sessions. Yesterday I cycled for an hour and despite feeling like I might pass out, these songs really kept me going. I've added them all to one Pandora station, and it's great for long cardio sessions that can get really boring! If you're more inspired by cute gear for the gym, check out my Pinterest page for fashionable workout apparel, healthy recipes, etc.!
If you have any music recommendations for me, I would love for you to leave them in the comments below. Have a great day!
I'm so happy you've stopped by the blog today for my first post in 2016! Mr. Jones and I just returned to Seattle from the most amazing Christmas vacation in Southern California and I have so much to share from our trip! The change in weather has been rough on our first day back, but the snowflakes outside are so beautiful.
Since it's my first post in the new year, I wanted to talk about Pantone's colors of 2016! You will be seeing these colors everywhere this year just like Marala last year and I'm so excited. This year the colors are 'Rose Quartz' like the cozy sweater in this post and 'Serenity' which is a soft periwinkle. These colors are very soothing and also perfect to pair with some of your summer staples like white denim. I talked about wearing an outfit just like this here, but now you can see just what I'm talking about!
Later this month I'll be sharing some of my favorite winter pieces in Rose Quartz and Serenity, so check back soon! Thanks for stopping by today and Happy New Year!
Every year Mr. Jones and I go to California to visit with family and friends. This year we got to explore San Clemente and Laguna Beach before heading down to San Diego for the annual Beach Bocce Ball Tournament. The beaches in Laguna were absolutely breathtaking and even though we just moved to Seattle, I would move to Southern California tomorrow if we could! Hopefully we will be going back soon (hint, hint Mr. Jones)!

Mr. Jones and I take a trip to California every year and this year, we got to spend time in Laguna Beach. Skyler's aunt and uncle had us over for dinner and we got to enjoy each others company as the sun set. Everything about this evening was beautiful and I miss our California family already.
I hope your week is off to a great start!
