I love the Fourth of July… I feel like it is one of those holidays that has always meant so much to me, especially being from Boston where the celebration is weekend-long event.

One of the best parts of any holiday, especially the 4th of July, is getting to see my family. I not only get some beach time with a few fine ladies, but I get to see my Dad and his family as well as my cousins and Tias/Tios (aunt and uncles in Portuguese) on my Dad’s side. (There is nothing more entertaining than surrounding yourself with a whole bunch of Portuguese family members, FYI)

Another favorite part of the 4th of July is of course, the food. From cheeseburgers off the grill, pasta & potato salad, and fresh fruit – it seems that everything I eat the whole 4 day weekend just tastes that much better. The adult beverages are also that much more delicious

But my all time favorite 4th of July food item? Watermelon. Hands Down. It is so freaking good around this time that I have been eating about a watermelon to the face every other day… yea – straight addicted.

So far this weekend, I have a beach day and bbq under my belt – and I have another bbq at my Daddy’s house on the 4th. Sadly, I will be watching the fireworks from afar this year. Tommy has to work so we won’t be taking the walk to the Cambridge bridge to catch the fireworks display at the Esplanade. Kind of a bummer, but I am just thankful that I get to spend some time with Tommy on the actual 4th of July, as he has been working a lot. I have defintely been missing him lately…


And of course, the 4th is like the real start of Summer around these parts. I am excited for more summer fun and the hotter days to come… but for now I am going to enjoy the 4th with those that I love. and stuff my face with copious amounts of watermelon and alcohol

Happy 4th of July!!

There are so many things that I have seen out and about that I am absolutely loving at this moment. I figured this beautiful Thursday would be no better time to share all the love with a post. That way, I can link it back to my BF in case he is feeling generous

3 Things I’m Loving Thursday

1. Rompers

Last summer, rompers were just becoming more popular (at least where I live) and I feel in love.. This season it seems that there are more and more colors/patterns/varieties to choose from, and I have seen so many that I like! At first, I was a little afraid of rompers because I assumed that they just wouldn’t fit my body in a flattering way. Thankfully, I have found a few that fit well and are comfortable (and don’t ride up my crotch)

2. Short sleeved pullovers & hoodies

The majority of what I wear is usually based on comfort and then style. I grabbed a few short sleeved hoodies and pullovers from a couple of stores, including Old Navy and instantly feel in love. They are perfect for the weather we have here in Boston (it gets pretty chilly at night or when near the water) and are so comfortable. I only wish that I could find a few more because I would totally wear these all summer long!


3. Feather Hair Extensions

I am so freaking excited for my appointment on Tuesday to get my hair done; which includes a few feather extensions! I think they are subtle enough, yet look beautiful in hair. They come in all colors and kinds, so it is easy to match with all hair colors and cuts. It took a few calls to find a salon that had them and were certified in the process, so I am psyched to finally have my appointment. My only issue now is that I think I may want to change up my color a bit (nothing drastic) but I just don’t know what I want. Hmmmm…


Q. Loving anything lately?
