Virginia Beach Travel Guide :: Where to Stay, Best Beach Spots & Restaurants

Put on the map earlier this year thanks to the Something in the Water Festival created by Pharrell, Virginia Beach is buzzing again. Nestled where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Chesapeake Bay, Virginia Beach actually has a few different beaches for you to explore. I had the pleasure of calling Coastal Virginia home for nearly three years so I cannot wait to share my Virginia Beach travel guide. This is a local’s take on the best beaches, where to stay, what to eat and of course, things to do!

My Five Summer Beauty Essentials

I really hate wearing makeup at the beach. Maybe it’s because I spent years reporting in the hot and humid weather and sweating in a full face of makeup. If I’m at the beach with friends or even for a blog shoot, I stick to the basics. I totally understand wanting to put your best face forward, so I’m sharing my five summer beauty essentials. These items will help you look pulled together but won’t make you feel cakey or like you’re wearing a full face.

One of My Favorite Winter Trend: Wearing Velvet Flats

Velvet is one of my favorite winter fabrics and I don’t think that’s going to change any time soon. I remember when I was first introduced to velvet. I was maybe 9-years-old and standing in the workroom of a woman who makes competitive figure skating dresses. I was getting my very first custom “big girl” dress and I couldn’t be more excited! My dress was made of a rich dark purple stretch velvet, complete with rhinestones.

The Party Heels You Need for the Holidays

I love the glitz and glamour of the holidays. A great pair of party heels can really make or break your outfit. After all, I personally make shoe contact before making eye contact sometimes at social gatherings. I’m partnering with Sole Society to talk about the party heels you need during the holidays. These studded and strappy heels are one of Sole Society’s top-selling shoes and I can see why! They also come in adobe, which is a beautiful nude. For the holidays though, I can be partial to a good black heel. Mainly because I love to wear black tights or black leggings.

Sparkle :: Office Holiday Party Outfit Idea

What a whirlwind week it has been! I know with December creeping around the corner, there are holiday gatherings on almost everyone’s schedule. I know when I did a poll on Instagram, many of you wanted an office holiday party outfit idea. I’ll admit, this can be a tricky one, especially if it’s a party taking place at the office or place of work. Y’all know I’m a fan of versatile pieces and this Gal Meets Glam Nell dress and jacket is no exception. Julie Engel is such an inspiration and I’m more than happy to support her by purchasing something from her collection. This outfit makes me feel bold, confident and powerful. When I got this in the mail, I literally couldn’t wait to try it on!
