50 Facts About Me (Video)

Today, I wanted to do something a little different. Lately I’ve been sharing a lot of style-related posts which I love, but it’s only a small portion of who I am and what I’m passionate about. When I started Happily Audrey I wanted this to be a place for conversation with all of you and to share a look into things that make me happy – travel, family, style, home/beach life, relationships and career. I’ve put together the below video that highlights 50 facts you probably didn’t know about me. I’d love if you’d take the time to watch and let…

5 Buys From Last Year That I Still Wear Today

5 Buys From Last Year That I Still Wear Today

Remember when we had that little conversation about when to invest in our wardrobe? It can be hard to justify spending that extra $100 on a quality item when there’s a trend piece for a fraction of the cost but let me ask you this: How many of those cheap pieces you bought last year are you still wearing today? Don’t get me wrong – I love a good bargain but when it comes to the things I know I’ll wear often, it’s worth the investment. In today’s post I want to share a look at five tried and true products I…

Bell Sleeves & More New York Fashion Week

There’s no avoiding it – bell sleeves are a major trend for fall. And why would we? They’re so fun! After rocking this bell-sleeve tunic from Free People for my last day at NYFW, I’m definitely a fan of this 70’s inspired trend. The sleeves add that effortless little sumthin’ sumthin’ that I love to have in every outfit. For these pics, the hubs and my bestie from LA, Loren, and I all hit the streets of Chelsea for an impromptu photo shoot after a long day of meetings, a runway show and a lot of rain.

Transition Into Fall: Faux Suede And Booties

I debuted my Transition Into Fall series last week and today I’m sharing another way to love your wardrobe as these last days of summer come into play. It’s amazing what a skirt can do to an outfit and with the heat of summer still lingering, a basic faux suede mini will make you feel fall appropriate while still keeping yourself cool. What’s better is that once the days start to cool down, you can rock the same look with a colorful pair of tights or even some over-the-knee boots. For the transitional season, I threw on my favorite pair…

The Best Of Summer

It’s Labor Day and I hope you’re all able to take the extra time to relax and enjoy the last long weekend of summer. To celebrate, I’m recapping some of my favorite moments from the season as we begin to transition into that fall frame of mind. Our Fourth of July trip where we drove from Utah to Idaho was a definite highlight. Sam’s family moved to Boise a few years ago and until then, I never thought it would be a place I visit. It took me awhile, but I finally understand why they love it there so much and…

Make This Pineapple Cocktail At Home (Video)

Lately, I’ve been getting questions from you guys like, “How do you and your husband afford to take so many vacations?” and the truth is, we haven’t taken a vacation since our Costa Rica trip in April. We, like I’m sure all of you, love to go on vacation. The sea breeze, the bright sun, the cocktails served in your favorite fruit. After our last trip, we decided we would make the effort to live our day-to-day lives feel like vacation. With the long Labor Day weekend ahead of us, today I’ll share one of our favorite ways to channel that…

Would You Wear A Wood Watch?

“Time is free, but it is priceless.” – Harvey MacKay When it comes to time, I’m always wishing I had more of it: More hours in the day, more time to write, more moments with Sam. Ever since I was young, I’ve been a hyper manager of time. This is a bit personal but I credit my time management abilities to my parent’s divorce that happened when I was seven. I don’t think they know this but I used to log the amount of time I’d spend with each of them during the week to make sure they felt like they were getting…

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

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

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…
