22 Candles

Hi everyone, Its been madness since I left to come on the ship tour. Im sorry for the lack of posts. I knew that this was going to happen, but I truly am going to try to keep this thing as up-to-date as possible, so bear with me! I turned the stunning age of 22 today *Australian Date*, and it was a fantastic birthday. I felt incredibly blessed all day, from home made key lime pies, to fashion magazines and cute stationery, I was good to go. I love birthdays, and even more than that, I love celebrating my 22nd birthday onboard a ship! Who does that?! Also - I thought I would make this a little bit more interesting and take my outfit posts in different parts of the vessel. So first things first : The engine room. Greasy, Loud, Chaotic. You catch the drift.

This dress was given to me by my dream boat, Nathan. Unfortunately, Nathan isnt on the trip with me right now. We wont see eachother for another 5 weeks. Sad, I know...but we will survive! :) This dress is amazing though, and the gold buttons have anchor details so I thought it was very perfect for this trip.

So, I have missed reading all of your posts over the last couple of days. How are you guys? I hope you are doing well and that things are good in your worlds. I have some exciting news dun dun we go.

A company from contacted me a couple of days ago asking me if I would like to do some reviews and photographs with their tights. We Love Colors is a Florida based online shop specializing in all sorts of darling hosiery . As all of you know, I am a tight fanatic, so you can imagine how ecstatic I was to be able to wear We Love Colors tights! I was able to pick out a couple of pairs, and I will be getting those sometime in the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned, I am excited to share with you guys how I decide to style them!

EVEN MORE EXCITING NEWS (For you Australian readers, especially!) :
We Love Colors is starting a promotion on the 1st of June until the end of August - for free shipping on all purchases over $30.00. I spent about an hour looking through their site. They have such a great variety of tights, ranging from fishnets to checkered patterns, to thigh highs and cute ankle socks, in over 50 colors - they make anyone smitten! Be sure to check out this amazing website and grab a pair! You can never have enough tights, right? Right!

Well, thats all for now but I hope you all have an amazing rest of your weekend. Over and out.



  1. Congrats on the birthday and the endorsement! You lucky duck! And you look so happy and free on your boat -- I love seeing these pictures from the engine room. You and your dreamboat will have so much to catch up on when you finally do see each other. I've been apart from my husband for longish stretches (more than two months, one time), but it's always the sweetest moment when you're reunited!
