Pura Vida

This summer my parents got a taste of the Pura Vida (the pure life)
on their get-a-way to Costa Rica!
I loved Costa Rica when we went on a couple of service trips in college
{see my Wanderlust recap for Costa Rica HERE!} 

They were on the Pacific side of the country and it looked stunning! 

& they looked like they had so much fun! 
Loved seeing Mom in her beautiful Faniel glasses:

Bright beautiful Faniel glasses are perfect in Costa Rica
no wonder why they have a boutique there!

While my parents were living the Pura Vida we watched their little fur ball Stanley.
Remember when my sisters & I got this little baby for my mom for Christmas 2015?!

He is still a super cutie, yet a little devious ๐Ÿ˜
He keeps my parents on their toes...

 Our payment for fur baby sitting was two bottles of the Lizano coconut rum,
it is like Malibu but soooo much better!
It is amazing in a cold glass of coke or by itself on ice.

We have saved a bottle since our Costa Rica trip and could not wait to get some more! 

What I Wore: glasses- Firmoo, lips- MAC "Rebel", top- boutique in Costa Rica from our trip in college, shorts- Target, flats- Michael Kors {thrifted}, bag- vintage Gucci

I updated my 2017 Spotify Playlist this week, 
I have been OBSESSIVELY listening to these songs:

Fleetwood Mac "Dreams" & "Rhiannon"

& Maggie Rogers "Alaska"
I already love her "On + Off" song but when I heard the "Alaska" Song Exploder podcast episode
I fell in love with this song and the story behind it.

I love the video of Pharrel Williams meeting Maggie and hearing Alaska 
is so inspiring:

& I can't get enough!

Some musical motivation to get through this week,
especially since classes at FIT start today!
