#kaylas20plus10 recap!

Here’s my 20plus10 in pictures! I went down to AC with 7 of my closest friends (Missed you JMichele!) And we had an absolute blast. From relaxing on the beach, gambling, getting dolled up, having a fab dinner, chillin next to a bonfire-where they gave me the most thoughtful & special gift; personal written notes, I was a blubbering mess…!-to heading out of the town, it was the best way I could imagine bringing in a new decade. Okay enough chit chat, check out the photos!

Product Review

Sigh, I was underwhelmed by this duo. I wanted to like it more than I did. Granted, I only have tried it once, but the way it made my hair feel just wasn’t for me. I have pretty knotty hair when I get out of the shower as it is and this made it 100 times worse. My aunt ended up combing out my hair for me and it took a good 5 minutes. My hair didn’t feel clean and my beach waves didn’t look much different. I will try it again at some point. If I have a different opinion after, I’ll let ya know! Xo.

A Book In Review

 

american-honey

Book Description
After graduating high school, Olivia “Ollie” McKenna leaves her small town roots in Summerville, Georgia, to pursue her dream of becoming a professional singer. With her best friend and older sister in tow, wholesome Ollie travels to the big city to compete in singing contest Atlanta Idol. There she meets nineteen-year-old Jack Bradley, a fellow country singer who quickly becomes a close friend. The connection between them is magnetic and an opportunity to sing together could change their lives forever. But what about Ollie’s mama’s fear of the music business? She’s been burned by the lures of the bright lights before and doesn’t want Ollie anywhere near that world. And Ollie’s growing feelings for Jack as more than just a pal could ruin everything. Despite her own doubts, Ollie is determined to win. Can she make her dream come true or will she return to her hometown empty-handed and brokenhearted?

Review:

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. American Honey was the third book I read on vacation, it was the perfect beach read. The Southern setting of the book was perfect because I vacation in South Carolina so I was able to hear the accents of the characters perfectly. Not a huge fan of country music, but I loved the songs that are included in the book written by the characters. I also really loved the whole singing contest aspect. I can’t wait for the next book to come out, but this was great as a stand-alone novel. I recommend this 3.5 star book for anyone who needs a quick, fun, Southern beach read, xo!

Product Review!

Hawaiian Tropic’s after sun lotion is my most favorite product of Summer. I heard about it last year from Elle-allthatglitters21 and she raved about how much you needed this product if you planned on hitting the beach. We picked up a few and it’s become a family favorite. The smell-hello, coconut papaya…yes, please- is amazing, it’s so tropical and fruity. And the geniuses over there at HT are giving you two products in one, it has aloe vera mixed in with moisturizer-every beach go-er’s dream! If you love to lay outside and get your tan on, you MUST purchase this product. This will help keep your skin nice and moisturized. If you are fair skinned and get burned badly, you MUST pick up this product. No more aloe vera in the fridge for you, cause this will cool your skin as it moisturizes so you won’t peel as bad. Til next time, xo!
