A new way to pay – the circle app

*this sponsored post is in collaboration with Circle. All opinions are my own* 

One of the hassles of transferring money to your account is that it takes days for the money to appear in your account. I personally can’t stand when this happens because sometimes I need those funds immediately and I don’t have access to it. I attended a dinner with Circle, which is an app that lets you send money to friends in the room or overseas without any fees. The best right? As we enjoyed a delicious 3-course meal at Townsman we learned how to use the app and send money towards the bill so we could test the app out live.

For the first course, we had minestrone soup with a side of bread and maple butter. For the second course I had butternut squash risotto and it was amazing! I love squash and I’ve never had it with risotto so I will be going back to have this again. I always try new things when I go out to eat so I’m glad I went with this choice. And for my last course, I had chocolate pecan tart with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The dinner was incredible and the app is so easy to use so I was very happy.  I’m not the greatest when it comes to learning new apps but when I have a simple menu and instructions to guide me through the app I’m a pro.

Like I said up above certain apps take a while for the funds to reach your checking account but we sent the money for this meal in seconds. We also had an ongoing group chat going on in the app filled with hilarious gifs. I have a link I can share with friends also! Use the code 3LGD78 and we’ll both get $10 when you sign up with your debit card and send $25. Thanks for reading everyone and thank you to Circle for partnering with me on this post.

Beach day + Adore me


adore me post

It’s summer time so there’s no harm in writing multiple blog post about the beach. Many of us will be on the beach every weekend so we need a place to find some beach day inspiration.  I’m always browsing for new bikinis, sun hats, cover-ups (you name it, I have it saved in my bookmarks). Recently I came across  Adore Me and they have such a great selection of bathing suits for all sizes in a variety of different prints and styles. I personally love a two piece bikini. The Melodie two piece has the crochet style with a mix of colors to make that tan pop. Another favorite is the Joanna Push-Up two piece bikini, I really like the stripe detail and the different shades of blue.

Adore Me has tons of bathing suits to choose from so I’m sure you’ll fall in love with one. Check out their swim collection here and the hashtag #beachdaymusts on Instagram to see what everyone is bringing to the beach.

2 trends, one dress

Summer dress


I’m always looking for inspiration when it comes to my clothes, I have a board on Pinterest dedicated to personal style. I was very excited when eShakti reached out to me because they have a great selection of summer dresses.  Embroidery and off the shoulder dresses are very popular this season so of course I immediately wanted this dress. eShakti lets you customize your order so everything fits just right. Also, their customer service is spectacular which is very important to me so that just made me love the brand even more. This dress could also work as a beach cover up if you don’t feel like wearing it throughout the day.
