SweetLife: Weekend Recap- 4 states in 24 hours


 My sentiments exactly South Park meme, my sentiments exactly.

We anticipate the weekend and no matter what we do (whether it’s filled with friends, a dance floor and patron shots or we do absolutely nothing) it always flies by in the blink of an eye.

This weekend was no different for myself as I drove through 4 states in less than 24 hours.

I took a megabus (for the first and LAST time ever) from Boston to CT to get my beloved Jett back (that’s the name of my car by the way). The next morning I drove my baby brother (he’s 17, but 2 in my eyes) to New Jersey (briefly passing through NY) to visit his little girlfriend. (Best sister of life award goes tooooooo!……)

I was actually born in New Jersey, so I stopped and visited my old house/ my grandmother’s old house she had up until her death (RIP) and the current residents were kind enough to let me inside.

A few tears (…okay, a lot!) were shed as I looked around and the memories came flooding back. I’ll save a sentimental post about my amazing grandmother for another time.

After going down memory lane, it was off to the Garden State Mall. If you’ve never been to this mall and you’re passing through NJ, I would recommend giving it a look around. You’d need to make sure your whole day is free as it would take a whole entire day just to get through all the stores (and crowds) they have there.

1. I fell in love with Anthropologie 


I want this book, this mug with a “J” on it and also this amazing book

2. I finally got to explore LUSH


I bought this deliciously tasting (don’t worry, it’s edible!) lip scrub.

*****I’ll be doing a post on LUSH, along with other organic, or natural beauty products that I’m getting into this spring! Stay tuned for that*****

3. Fell in love with Shoes at Lord and Taylor

I need these: (they only have gold online currently)




and these


and these gorgeous shoes that just scream beach resort

We did eat at a delicious burger and wine restaurant, but that post will be coming up later this week.

  1. Whoa! To say you were busy would be an understatement.
    I wasn’t so accomplished but I did find out that I indeed can do 4 style shoots (all different locations) and 3 food shoots in less than 5 hours.

    Times a factor when you have a party to get to 😝
