Ame & Lulu for the Woman On the Go

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence Central for Ame & Lulu. I received product samples to facilitate my review.

Today I have a sponsored post about Ame & Lulu, a perfectly preppy accessory brand that started as a company creating a cute golf line and has branched into a large selection of bags as well. Designed for the stylish woman on the go, Ame & Lulu is functional and fashionable. Because of their classic, colorful, playful styles, they’ve gained recognition from the Today Show and in InTouch and People magazines.

From work to workout and the driving range to dinner, Ame & Lulu has you covered. If you have an active lifestyle, you will really appreciate all they have to offer.

I have the Easy Tote, Essentials Insert, and Key Pouch, all in the “Wish” print and am obsessed with all three! The tote is nice and big, with lots of room for carrying pretty much anything you can think of. Last week I had a blogging event and a job interview right after. I was able to put two pairs of shoes, a change of clothes, and a briefcase in the tote. And the insert worked perfectly for carrying my makeup. But the majority of the time I use it as a clutch while running errands. Lastly, the pouch is great for coffee dates or times when you need to have your keys and money handy but don’t need a full-on bag.

Are you into golf, tennis, or yoga? I’m not personally, but want to just because the Ame & Lulu accessories are so stinkin’ adorable! And that’s what’s fun about the company, all of the designs are classic pieces that can be used for some many different things.

I highly recommend Ame & Lulu. Personally, I have my eye on several more items, starting with the Expediter. So perfect for vacations.

If you’d like to shop Ame & Lulu, I have a one-time 25% off discount! Use the following code at checkout: love25

My FIRST Dunkin' Donuts Trip

I always get jealous of all you bloggers who talk about Dunkin' Donuts, because up until earlier this month, we didn't have any in California (or at least anywhere near SoCal). We used to, but for some reason they all closed decades ago. So to my knowledge I'd never experienced they hype. And then one opened in Santa Monica and everyone within a 100 mile radius went insane.

I waited a few weeks for things to cool down, then finally made the 50 mile drive yesterday to get myself some of their coffee and donuts. And then my dreams were crushed.

There was still a line that wrapped around the building and we waited for about 40 minutes, only to be disappointed by both the donuts and coffee. I'd heard the latter was what people really enjoy about DD, and maybe my problem was that I got an iced latte instead of traditional coffee. The donuts were OK. The frosting was great, but the dough is thick and harder than I expected. We have Krispy Kreme out here and I'm used to their light, melt in your mouth goodness.

Maybe DD was just having a bad day? Or are they way overrated?

8 Incredible Global Styles You Need to See

Today I'm partnering up with YouTube Nation to bring you a little fashion fun! Fresh off NY and London Fashion Weeks, and with Paris's currently taking place, YouTube Nation presents 8 Incredible Global Styles You Need to See. Watch and get inspired by trends taking place all over the world - from Harajuku girls that Gwen Stefani is a big fan of, to Mexican Point Boots that inspired the Comme des Garçons Homme Plus Spring/Summer 2015 collection.

I feel like my personal fashion choices are a little bit all over the place, so for me, it's really cool to see people who are all in with a specific style. Most of the looks in the video work so well but I'd never be able to put the outfits together myself. It takes some real creative genius!

Top Five Travel Photos of 2014

With the year flying by, I thought it'd be fun to take a look back at some of the epic vacations I've taken this year. When I was laid off in January I decided that I was going to make the most out of the situation and travel as much as possible. As a result, this year has been pretty great. Here are my top five pictures I've taken of my adventures.

My adventures aren't quite over yet. I have trips planned to San Francisco and New Orleans this fall!
