Let’s Celebrate National Dog Day

It’s National Dog Day and you know that today’s post will be all about my very special, too cute to handle, fur babes – Sookie and Bones! There’s no shame in my fur mama game. These two bring so much love and joy into our everyday lives; I just can’t imagine what my days would be like without them. Last year, I shared their adoption stories and lately they’ve been enjoying all of the pool time we’ve been having here in Florida. Sookie and Bones are not big fans of the water, so when I found this baby pool (yes,…

A Massage For The Rocker’s Soul

Ahh, the spa. The smell of lavender in the air, the soft, fluffy robes that make you feel like you’re wrapped up in a cloud and – is that Guns N’ Roses’ “Sweet Child Of Mine” blasting through the speakers? While the hair-band music was only played in the reception area, I knew as soon as I arrived that this was not going to be my typical spa experience. I had the opportunity to visit Rock Spa at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino to experience their Rhythm & Motion massage. What makes this specific massage so unique is that…

This Dress Is Completely Customizable

Dress: eShakti c/o | Tote: Tory Burch | Sandals: Vince Camuto | Sunnies: Karen Walker | Necklace: Gorjana | Earrings: Baublebar – similar I have been all about hues of red and deep orange lately. Looking at some of my recent shoots and purchases, this color has become a bit of an unintentional go-to for me. With the end of the summer style season approaching (because let’s face it – I’ve got at least another two-and-a-half months of summer heat here in Florida), shades of red are always a great transitional color for those between summer and fall days. This midi dress is such…

3 Braids I Learned From YouTube

3 Braids I Learned From YouTube

If you’ve been following along the blog for awhile now, you know that my pixie cut is officially GROWN OUT! I tell you what, there is no better feeling than reaching a hair length goal and while I still have awhile to go before I reach an ideal length, I felt like I would never reach the bob length I’m currently at now. With my new locks, I’ve been experimenting with different hairstyles and am so excited to finally be able to try out some different braids! I’ve discovered so many I can do even at my short hair length…

Moments At Home

It’s hard for me to believe that next month will mark two years since Sam and I moved into our first home together. Owning a home has always been a dream for me and even after owning our’s for some time now, there are moments when it hits me all over again; like a, “Look at where life has led you” feeling. We’ve been thinking about taking on some renovations for the kitchen and master bath – both of which are really outdated. I’m also thinking it’s time to replace the carpet in our living areas with some wood flooring. Since we…

A Quick Trip To Siesta Key (VLOG)

Ever since Sam and I moved to Florida a few years ago, we are constantly challenging ourselves to live life like we’re on vacation. Whether it’s waking up early to get a sunrise paddle boarding session in, drinking out of coconuts by our pool or escaping to a new beach for the weekend – we love living in Florida and the coastal life that comes with it. An Olympic triathlon had been on Sam’s bucket list for awhile now, and when he was searching for a place to take his first stab at the challenge, a race in one of…

Irresistible Me Hair Extensions Review

It should be no secret by now that I’ve been growing out my pixie cut and in case it wasn’t obvious… I am growing out my pixie cut. 🙂 For the life of this blog, my hair has always been above my shoulders but before I went full pixie, I actually had really long hair. I’ve always been the kind of person who gets bored with my style easily. I don’t like wearing a lot of the same things and that mentality definitely goes for my hair. I’ve tried to get my colorists to allow me to try different colors…

Beauty Buys I’m Loving

Beauty Buys I’m Loving

This summer, I’ve really been making the effort to put myself together everyday even if I don’t necessarily have something planned outside of the house. Working from home, I don’t always feel the kind of motivation most people do to put on makeup and do my hair everyday but that is changing! I’ve found that when I get dressed and fresh faced each morning, I’m more motivated and the day just feels more structured. I’m always wanting to try new beauty trends and products and these that I’m going to share with you are some of my absolute favorites that…

Summertime Tassels

Another weekend at the beach. Summertime in Florida is scorching but when you get to spend your days by the water, it makes everything better. I’ve been feeling a little worn down lately – days have been thrown off track, goals pushed to the side, family to tend to. You ever feel like the world is working against you? Yeah, that’s been me lately. So yesterday, Sam and I woke up early and packed up the car and headed straight for our happy place. I find that when I need motivation to get back on track, I need to break out of…

2 Go-To Summer Lip Combos (VIDEO)

2 Go-To Summer Lip Combos (VIDEO)

When it comes to makeup, I tend to stick to a lot of basics but lately I’ve been expanding my beauty horizons and trying my hand at trends and new colors. Today is National Lipstick Day and I’m sharing two lip combinations that I’ve had on repeat this summer. Lip Combo #1 | Natural Nudes The nude trend has been around for awhile now, but I haven’t been able to rock the look because of my fair skin – it makes me look SO washed out. That is, until I found that simply finding nude-based colors with a tint of…

A Very Gingham Summer

Dress: Shabby Apple c/o | Heels: Vince Camuto | Saddle Bag: Sole Society Lips – Liner: NYX in Bloom | Lipstick: YSL Rougue Volupté Shine in 49 Rose St Germain | Gloss: M.A.C. Cremesheen Glass in Loud & Lovely  If there’s one trend I’ve noticed on repeat each summer season, it’s gingham. Sure, there are shorts, maxi dresses and crop tops; but nothing really seems to paint a picture of summer quite like gingham does. This dress from Shabby Apple give the perfect vibe for the season with a pop of pink and a flattering waistline. I love a good wrap dress…

Dog Days of Summer

Living in Florida, summers can be brutal! The sun is blistering and I’m always making sure that I’m staying extra hydrated and lathering on the sunscreen. But even more so, taking into account how the heat and sun can affect my fur babes, Sookie and Bones. Our pups are just as susceptible to the potential harm that comes from the increased heat of summer. So today, I’m sharing ways you can protect your furry family members no matter where your sumer takes you. Dr. Jennifer Adolphe, PhD senior pet nutritionist at Petcurean, shared the below tips  to keep your dogs happy and…

Moments At Home

Not too long ago, I introduced this Moments At Home series and was surprised by how many comments you all left. Sam and I put so much sweat and love into these four walls and it’s always so rewarding to know other people enjoy it, too. This month, we reached a new milestone in homeownership: Yard Of The Month. I kid you not, we got back from a trip to find this sign posted up in our front yard! If you follow either Sam or I on Snapchat, you probably saw that I took it upon myself to award our…

A Slip Dress And A Smile

Topshop Stripe Midi Wrap Dress (on sale) | BLANKNYC Faux Leather Jacket (on sale) | Karen Walker Super Lunar Sunglasses | Vince Booties – part of last year’s sale, linked to similar on sale here Monday, Monday, so good to me.. I can’t help but be in a cheerful mood after having such a fun and productive weekend. The hubs got back in town from New York and we spent all of our time together, just the two of us, catching up, catching Pokémon (guilty) and spending the weekend to work on some personal projects. Sometimes it’s good to use a couple of free days to reset…

Lancôme Juicy Shaker Lip Oil Review (VLOG)

Consider yourselves warned… My first beauty video is up on YouTube. Making videos has always been part of the plan for Happily Audrey but time and in all honesty, NERVES, have also always been huge factors into why I don’t do them as much as I’d like. But that’s all changing friends and this is just beginning of new things to come. For this review, I wanted to share my thoughts on a new(ish) beauty product that I’ve been loving lately – the Lancôme Juicy Shaker Lip Oils. As you may remember, I met with Lancôme a couple of months…

A Summer Dress Under Boise Skies

Dress: Revolve | Boater Hat: Nordstrom | Flatforms: Steve Madden via Shopbop Happy Monday! I hope everyone is feeling refreshed after a fun and relaxing weekend. Here are some of my favorite photos from our recent trip to visit Sam’s family in Boise, Idaho. When we travel, I always like to get out and catch the sunset. This is usually when lighting is at it’s best and you can see a gorgeous sky. It’s funny to think how different a sunset can look depending on where you are in the world. The skies in Boise definitely surprised me with their…

Travel Vlog: Antelope Island State Park

One-Piece Swimsuit | Shorts We traded in the beach for bison and rolling hills of farmland this week, as the hubs and I adventured throughout Utah and Idaho for a little summer getaway. His sister, mom and dad moved to Boise a few years ago and we’ve been long overdue for a visit. Tickets to Idaho from Florida were ridiculous so I looked at other options and found two nonstop flights to Salt Lake City for half the cost of one ticket to Boise. In all seriousness, getting to Boise from Orlando or Tampa costs as much and takes the same…

Celebrate Freedom. Happy Fourth Of July!

“Freedom is not a gift bestowed upon us by other men, but a right that belongs to us all by the laws of God and nature.” – Benjamin Franklin I hope everyone in the States is enjoying a fun and happy Fourth of July! I’m thankful everyday to live in a country that was founded by a group of badasses who fought to provide us all with free and just lives. Ready the fireworks. There are so many reasons to celebrate! How are you enjoying the holiday? We’re in Boise visiting the hubs’ family. Loving this time we all have…

This Unisuit Will Protect You From The Sun

Unisuit: Cabana Life c/o | Paddle Board: Tower Paddle Boards via Amazon It’s no secret that I am a quintessential Florida girl. I love the beach, the heat, the humidity, the salty air.. All of it. But if there’s one thing I could change about my summer love it’s the damage that comes to my skin from being out in the sun. I’m always applying sunscreen (and annoyingly making sure my husband and friends are applying sunscreen). I wear hats, sunglasses, hide in the shade – you name it. So when I learned about Cabana Life and the sun protection that’s built…
