OOTD: SAVONA ON THE BEACH

I haven’t graced a swimsuit since I was blessed with a ‘mum bod.’ But thank you Cosabella for helping me get out of my comfort zone. They sent me some of the prettiest swimwear and lingerie. I especially loved this Savona Floral Bralette and matching Savona Lowrider Hot Pants by Cosabella. Sooooo very pretty! In love with the floral colourful and feminine design. I had lots of people asking where I got the set from 🙂

The good news is I have a 10% OFF Site Wide Discount Code!! Use code: LYDIA10 to get 10% off site wide. Expires Dec 31st 2018.

Living With Eczema: 11 Months Update (Reviewing EVERY Product We’ve Tried So Far)

By Posted on 2 1.4K

A few weeks ago, I excitedly shared a photo of my soon to be 1 year old soon gushing  about the fact that he was well, soon turning 1! In the post, I casually mentioned several highs and lows we’ve experienced since becoming parents. One of the lows being dealing with his dry skin condition. I was baffled at the response I got in the form of numerous messages from people detailing their own experience and recommending so many helpful things for us to try out. First of all, eczema is one of those things that, until we experienced it, I had no idea how common and STRESSFUL it was. Most babies experience some form of dry skin condition (from mild to moderate to severe) at some point in their childhood. A lot of them tend to outgrow it and get better. Some have to deal with dry skin (psoriasis) …

Photoshoot in Central Park

Jackson shot supermodel Christy Turlington and Calvin Klein creative directors Francisco Costa, Italo Zucchelli and Kevin Carrigan for WSJ. Magazine. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself.

“Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it?”

But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?
On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of …

Slideshow Type Post

A few months ago, we found ridiculously cheap plane tickets for Boston and off we went. It was our first visit to the city and, believe it or not, Stockholm in February was more pleasant than Boston in March. It probably has a lot to do with the fact that we arrived completely unprepared. That I, in my converse and thin jacket, did not end up with pneumonia is honestly not even fair.
It was so cold that I wouldn’t even reach for my camera. I snapped more pictures with my phone than I did with my Canon. We stayed outside the city and ventured out to explore, but all those trips were cut short. Being inside and warm was just so much more appealing.

We mostly just ate. I dragged Lee and our friends across the city and back to get Ethiopian, Mexican, Taiwanese, and …
