Coastal Bar Cart Makeover

Coastal Bar Cart
coastal bar cart makeover

I rescued this bar car about 5 years ago from the hotel I worked at in Las Vegas right before it was going to be tossed out. I could just see the potential and knew we could bring her back to life! As you may know, we have moved across the country a few times and with every new place I like to change up the look of this bar cart. You can check out a couple photos of the transformations below 🙂 This by far is my favorite makeover!

I partnered up with the cutest local shop Tampa Bay Interiors to give the bar cart a much needed refresh! It’s so nice to see local ladies running their own businesses and Deb, the owner of Tampa Bay Interiors is a boss babe in her own right. Last year she opened up her shop in Dunedin, FL and it is a dream! Her store is thoughtfully filled with coastal inspired decor, unique furniture and artwork, beautiful textiles, gifts and so much more! Take a peak at her INSTAGAM and see for yourself! I highly recommend stopping in, there’s always something new and beautifully displayed for inspo! If you’re not local, her website will be up soon! Yay! Give her a follow to stay updated!

Fall in Florida + Amazon Giveaway

Fall in Florida

It’s getting to that time of year when the PSL’s, pumpkins and chunky sweaters are starting to pop up and down here in Florida we’re still cruising in the 90’s wearing maxi’s and sandals. Which I love, but it can be hard to transition into fall when it still feels like summer! My favorite thing to do is buy some lightweight fall colored dresses, add a fun floppy hat, and a breathable bootie- and if/when it ever cools off enough (or I’m in a cold restaurant) add a light cardigan 🙂 I have found so many great fall pieces on Amazon lately I want you to get in on the fun too! I have joined together with some blogger friends to giveaway $500 to Amazon! It’s super easy to enter- the more entries the better chance of winning! Check it out below and GOOD LUCK!

Shopping with SHEIN

White Eyelet Dress

Shop The Dress HERE

 

Lately I’ve had a lot of questions about shopping with SHEIN. First off, I would like to say that I would never share anything on any of my platforms that I don’t like or wear myself. I love bright, colorful, fun clothing regardless of the price! I believe in splurging on statement pieces that will last you for years but I also love a good deal and trying out new trends too. I actually have a few dresses that were under $25 and have lasted years too! So wherever you are on this scale I definitely think SHEIN is worth a shot! My number 1 thing is to just read the reviews!

SIZING: This is always the hardest part when ordering from anywhere online. But luckily SHEIN offers the exact measurements for each item. My tip: order a soft measuring tape and keep it near by or better yet save your measurements so you have them on hand. I fluctuate in weight quite a bit so I like to remeasure before placing an order, just to double check! You can shop the measuring tape that I use HERE. This is also where I like to read the reviews to see how others feel about the fit and many gals post photos that help so much too!

QUALITY: Just like ordering from many other retailers online, this can also be tricky. Usually I check to see what the description lists the material as and then I check for any reviews about it. I have ordered a few items that were pretty thin and lightweight- which actually works well for here in Florida but others were a little disappointed. I have also received a few dresses that blew all of my expectations out of the water! You can check out one of my all time favorites in THIS POST.

SHIPPING: Currently standard shipping is free for orders over $49 and express shipping for order over $99 but they run a lot of different promotions that can be even better. SHEIN is based out of China so standard shipping can take 10-14 days, so I typically go for Express Shipping even if I don’t hit that $99 threshold, its worth the extra $12 to get it sooner. They also have some warehouses here in the US and the items arrive quicker! The last few orders have arrived in 3-4 days with Express shipping.

RETURNS: I have ordered a couple things that were brand new and did not have any feedback on them. SO good news: SHEIN offers free returns on almost everything except bodysuits, lingerie & sleepwear, swimwear, jewelry, and accessories (excluding scarves, bags, and mermaid blankets). Luckily my items worked for me but I love that there is a free return option.

Bonus Point Program: I am always a fan of a points program! Why not earn back when you’re shopping? SHEIN offers 1 point for every dollar spent and then you can earn bonus points for leaving reviews, adding photos with the reviews, size info and sharing on social media.

Overall I am a fan of ordering from SHEIN and would recommend it. Just check your measurements and yes, once again read the reviews 😉 They have some super cute pieces and such amazing prices, it’s definitely worth a shot! Below are some of my latest favorites from them and a few that are currently in my cart!

Custom Dress with eShakti

The Lovely Flamingo, Jill DiGioia wears a floral ESHAKTI custom made dress.

I recently had the opportunity to customize my own dress with eShakti and it was so fun!  You can go to their site and find so many fun dresses (tops and bottoms too), once you pick your favorite you can customize it to suit your style and fit. First, you enter your measurements, your height, and then its starts getting really exciting! You can pick your neckline, sleeve type, dress length, and even a pocket option! It was super quick & easy and arrived fast too. I went with this Floral Poplin Dress and it fit like a glove! I would definitely recommend customizing your own dress whether it be for a special occasion or just for fun. I can’t wait to order more from eShakti!
