Summer Nail Art for 2018

It’s that time again!  Today I’m sharing my favorite trends for Summer nail art for 2018.  This Summer I really like to incorporate at least a little bit of aqua into my nail designs (and if not a little then a lot!) and adding in pinks that will stand out.  Summer is really the time to go brighter and bolder with your nail art and I’ve never been one to shy away from color.  Take a look at my top 5 trends for this year’s Summer nail art:

Casual Summer Outfit

Casual Summer Outfit

 

embroidered dress – the best part about dresses is that they are a full outfit!  In the Summer just being able to grab something and slip it on, allows you more time to spend outside soaking up the sun.

moonstone necklace – moonstone is such a gorgeous stone with light flashes of blue and white-ish hues

blue sunglasses – can huge oversized sunglasses come back in style?  I miss those Carrie Bradshaw days!

pouch – I love the background pattern on this pouch with the striped overlay, so cute

palm tree earrings – I’ve been wearing these on repeat, they’re so easy to wear and go with any outfit!

straw bag – how cute is this bag?  a little pricey but I’m in love

espadrilles – I love my espadrilles and these ones are the cutest!!

Hello Summer!

I’m so excited it’s finally the first day of Summer!  Ladies it’s time for us to get our tails to the beach (if you haven’t already!).  If you’ve been following along on Instagram, you know that I’ve been on countdown for today.  Although I do consider June 1st the unofficial first day of Summer.  Sometimes I feel like the weather knows better than the calendar does!

Hello Summer!  It's finally the first day of Summer!

Coney Island Mermaid Parade 2018

This past weekend I did one of my favorite things, I visited Coney Island for its 2018 Mermaid Parade!  Coney Island is one of those places that epitomizes what Summer is.  The blue skies and golden sands of the beach offer a charming backdrop for a vibrant carnival, nestled in between is the boardwalk, that’s filled with little tchotchke shops and Italian ice stands.  You can see more pics and videos on my Instagram page!  Look for the “Mermaid Parade” in my highlight reel.

Even Minnie Mouse and Lady Gaga came as mermaids

 

After the mermaid parade, we decided to go for a trip on the Wonder Wheel.  A well-known ferris wheel at Coney Island.  It allows you to get a full view of the carnival, boardwalk and beach.  Not only that but it’s a fun part of the history of Coney Island, the Wonder Wheel has been around since 1920!

I love all the bright colors that make up the Wonder Wheel

There’s such more more to do at the Coney Island Mermaid Parade then what I’m showing.  We also stopped by the original Nathan’s hot dog restaurant for lunch, as well as, Coney’s Cones for ice cream!  You can see from the pic above that there are so many more rides than just the Wonder Wheel and at night everything is light up.  So come stop by next year or even join in the Mermaid Parade!  Check out more pics and videos on my Instagram page, under the “Mermaid Parade” highlight reel.

It’s probably no surprise to you that I became obsessed with this small Spanish seaside home! with its turquoise shutters and turquoise doors.  #GiveMeAllTheTurquoise   I love the bold doorway against the bright white stucco exterior.  What more could a girl ask for?  Take a look:
