Come MRS Fancy Pants, fancy me BANANA! All signs are pointing to a sunny-hued fashion bonanza! You won't hear a single argument from my camp - for there's no better shade of yellow to compliment skin that's tropically tanned! Channel your inner Carmen Miranda and stock up on all things befittingly banana! When you do, be sure to buy by the bunch! For a banana inspired accoutrement will always give you that extra snazzy punch! Join the fancy flock and trade in your winter blues - for a one way ticket on the fabulously fashionable banana boat cruise!!

LOUNGING IS ASTOUNDING!!!

02.02.16

Vintage La Barron Fibrella Pool Loungers (I own one in yellow, you should be jealous!) / The Happiness Planner / Kopari Coconut Oil / Frends Headphones / Tombo PlayColor2 Pens (they are next level + I swear by them, but whatever.) / Olivine Atillier SHE BLONGS THERE Perfume Oil / Sakara Life Beauty Water Cocktail Mix Kit / Karen Walker Beach Towel / THE RODIN LIP BALM RING (best thing ever!)

To anyone who cares or even reads my rants... FORGIVE my absence! I've been doing my fair share of LOUNGING and trying to seek my balance. Isn't that the constant struggle?! A work-from-home, island-hopping mama of 3 whilst movin-n-shakin' is one heck of a juggle. But here's the real deal: finding the balance + your happy is truly what's important. For it is when we slip that everything goes to sh*t + you experience the inevitable COME TO JESUS MOMENT. Lets face it, there are only so many times we can pull the alarm. So it's just best to take "adult" timeouts and forego the longterm harm. When I find myself slipping, overdoing, double dipping + over-sipping I know that's my cue. Like an innocent tap on the shoulder, I stand up, walk away and know just what to do. I simply state to those in earshot (and to those in the know) "I'm off to Lounge..." I gather my goodies + temporarily dismount. I'm a lucky lady to have a support system that allows, supports + encourages my wellbeing. It's probably due to their own innate health, experience, along with seeing + believing. 

I'll tell you what, as a strong, confident woman who struggles with my mental health - finding what works for you + sticking to it is the very best gift you can give yourself! Struggle is real, and depending on where you are at, she can make frequent visits. The best you can do is to be prepared + forgiving with your limits. Know when to throw in your towel and call it a game because when you keep your cool you remain the same sane dame sans the shame!!

When it snows, it blizzards! I believe that overtime such prolonged conditions will cause any good person to worship dark wizards! Therefore I've taken on the high duty to rescue you all and put you in a BALMY state of mind! Let's face it, if I can I KNOW TOUCAN, too and everything will be mighty fine! Just close your eyes and let yourself bob about the tropical seas atop a floating toucan. Soak up those soul-toasting rays whilst you deepen that exotic glittering suntan! Are you getting warmer...? GOOD! Lets make today a sunshine laden scorcher!! 

Sometimes a little visual meditation is all it takes, and in just a minute or two you'll have completely forgotten about the mounting snowflakes! Heck, why not start the search for your next vacay?! I hear GUAM is darn near perfect nearly everyday!!! So get off your lazy, frozen arse and get in a TROPICAL state of mind.... I know TOUCAN!! Pick up a few alluring treasures to keep you in the hot, equatorial state of mind. I'm sure as sh*t it'll keep your thoughts warm and sunny during this arctic wintertime! 

BIBA!

Living la vida loca in the tropics for the last year has permanently shifted my fashion purchases. No longer do I get excited about FALL or winter fashion for when I look at each fabulous piece, all I see are wearable furnaces!!! The time for MRS (year round) fashion stockpiling starts with RESORT and lasts through spring and summer. So you can imagine when these bright little nothings start popping up, my MRS heart goes all a FLUTTER! And so, I have accepted the duty of sharing my hot selections to those far and near. While I understand there are many suffering through the frigid winter, perhaps picking up a piece or two (for later) will bring your some hot and happy cheer! As for me I'm stocking up like a crazy 'PREPPER' - so that when the rest of the world changes seasons, I don't go into fashion panic + terror!

You'd do the very same thing if you were in my boat. Be compassionate for those of us living in exotic, tropical locales around the globe!

BIBA!
