A Sunday Well Spent Brings a Week of Content


We all celebrate Sunday Funday in our own way but it's probably one of my favorite days of the week! Invite your friends over, watch some football and extend your weekend festivities just a little longer before hanging up your party pants. Don't worry, since our Funday starts early and ends early, you can rest assured that you will go to bed early enough to be perfectly refreshed for work on Monday morning... or so we can hope so ;)

Pinnacle Cherry Lemon Soda
1 Part Pinnacle Cherry Vodka
2 Parts Lemon Lime Soda
Mix in a glass with ice and garnish with a lime slice.

Above is a little drink I like to enjoy and serve my guests or just lounge around and sip on during the day. I get a little of that carbonation during the day that I always seem to want at the end of my weekend and I love the way it tastes. And of course since Bloody Mary's are the quintessential Sunday Funday drink, below is a little fun and festive video recipe. Make sure to watch, enjoy & be safe!

Flaunt it Friday #FIF

Being a woman these days can be, well...tough at times. We all have insecurities (and yes, me too) but after years of working through them, I have learned to love what I have been given and work it to it's fullest. It's hard not to compare yourself to others at times and trust me, I used to do it as well. I mean, what woman hasn't? But I'm confident enough to admit it now and realize it's not what's important in life. We have to embrace one another and be confident with what we have. That's why today's post is what I like to call Flaunt it Friday -- all about working what you've got and today' I'm working on my my favorite features-- my eyes -- by playing them up a bit using some awesome eyeshadow and liner from Target.

Even me with a fashion/beauty blog -- there come times when I can't wear certain styles or be the skinniest girl in the room -- but, I've found ways to embrace who I am and the find styles that do work for me and showcase it in my little space on the internet. Not everyone may love it (or even me for that matter) but it's important to push through. What I want to get at is when it comes to achieving the style you want you should never feel held back by your body or any part of yourself for that matter. It's not about what you don't have, it's about how to flaunt what you do have.

I love you all so so dearly and if I can make one person feel inspired then I'm doing a good thing.

Tropical Tiki-tini


As some of you may already know (and for those who don't) I am headed back to our home in the Dominican Republic in a few days! The DR is so full of life, color, fun and natural beauty that it's always such an exciting time when I get to go! It makes me step back and appreciate another culture and become one as they are some of the most welcoming people I've ever come across. Because I've been in full vacation mode for the past week, I felt like it was only appropriate to do a tropical inspired post to get us all in the mood! I like to call it my "Island State of Mind." While I'm there, I'm always indulging in their amazing food, treats and beyond incredible drinks and this Pinnacle Tropical Tiki-Tini was the perfect fit to get me all wrapped up in the excitement and all prepped for my trip. Watch the fun video below to see how you can bring a little bit of my vacay into your home too!

You guys -- It's so hot in SD, words cannot explain.. I honestly feel like I'm somewhere else, melting away! I mean, I usually love heat, but this is pretty darn hot. Yesterday was 100 degrees..in September! Crazy, right?! Needless to say, I am not able to put away my shorts quite yet so I'm still sporting some summer looks! Today I paired teal and pink together which I always think is such an adorable combination. I'm a huge fan of tucking shirts into clothing since I think it looks polished and flatters my petite figure. I also want to mention, I am seriously obsessed with these shorts! I got them recently and have been wearing them a whole lot. They have an elastic waistband which is super comfortable for me and is made from a scuba style fabric that stretches perfectly and makes me feel like I can wear all day. I kind of feel like I'm wearing pi's or something since they make me feel SO comfortable and I know I'm not alone in thinking there's nothing better than that.

Oh! I also wanted to mention I just started up my Love, Olia newsletter! I will be sharing style tips, news, personal stories and tutorials exclusive only to subscribers so please make sure to subscribe here! I would absolutely love it if you took the time to do so!

Hope you guys have a wonderful day & are staying cool!

I'm really excited because today I'm going to be sharing with you a new subscription service I've discovered that I'm loving. Le Tote is a subscription service where you receive a Boutique Box filled with 3 garments and 2 accessories in each tote valued at over $200. When you receive your box, you can keep it as long as you want and when finished, you return it back to receive your next tote in the mail! You can switch it up as many times as you want in a month. It's amazing because you can try everything on before you decide to buy it. If you love something, just keep it and return the rest. They will charge the credit card that you have on file and it's as simple as that! I've gotten some amazing accessories (worn above) and some adorable pieces and I am always excited when I see my new Le Tote box waiting for me at my doorstep.
