Rise & Shine!


Good Monday morning, loves! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. I had the most amazing time at the beach celebrating with my siblings. Lots of sun, yummy food & cocktails, gorgeous sunsets and even a surprise firework display. What else can a girl ask for? :)

Kind of hard to get back in the swing of things this morning but it should be an exciting week so I'll let myself ease into things and enjoy the ride.

What did you all do? Anything fun to report?

Fun! Nothing better than the beach. Seriously, in the whole world. I hope it leaves you with awesome daydreams all week, ha! I had a wonderful dinner at an adorable little restaurant with a friend--delicious margherita pizza and sparkling wine--such a lovely Sunday night!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Great sounding weekend! We checked out the art gallery as I said and were VERY tempted to buy the limited edition prints. They were the price of a Balenciaga city bag so we said we'd invest in art when I get a new job. Now I really have to work it!

Tanvi said...

Your weekend always sound wonderful. Mine was grt as well. We are in Boston and caught up with some old friends and it was fun! :)

Café Bellini said...

I spent the weekend driving around in my new car :-) I'm still a bit nervous so I have shoulder/back aches from gripping the steering wheel so tightly, I think hahaha... Now I think I should book myself a massage, wouldn't that be superb? Have a great birthday week!

Gorgeous pictures! Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend. Mine was a bit dull coming back from vacation and all but it's all good.

p.s. I am having a Lavanila fragrance giveaway for fans of my Facebook page if this is something of interest to you (winner chooses scent). xo

Jen said...

My weekend was so nice! It was relaxing, it was warm and I was finally able to get some sun & color ;-) But enough about me, let's talk about the hair in the pictures! Seriously, when can't I have hair like that??

Sniff said...

Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend! Mine wasn't too shabby either. Friday, beers on my terrace with my neighbour. Saturday: First drinks in the afternoon quayside with a friend, then a girl's party at another friend's place all night. Didn't make it home til 3 in the morning. Sunday, dinner with friends at one of our favorite hangouts. Apart from the unstable summer weather we're experiencing right now, everything is just like what a good summer weekend is supposed to be about.
