summer swimwear under $50




After what seemed like WEEKS without seeing even just the tiniest glimpse of sunshine, i've been developing  cabin fever by trying to keep myself busy on my days off indoors.  You can probably picture the over abundance amount of excitement I had when at last the sun decided to show itself today in South Florida. With the sun beaming down upon my skin, I thought it would be best to share with you all some of my favorite swimsuits & pool/beach accessories at the moment! Feel free to click the items down below to check out each item!




Hope you all are having a wonderful start to your summer!

beauty master class in bal harbour


Hey babes! So yesterday I went down to Bal Harbor and experienced a master beauty class hosted by Maria Tettamati, a fashion blogger based in Miami. I swear, in another life or if I ever get bored when I'm old I wanna become an esthetician. I'm just way too intrigued with skincare! With all joking aside, in the mean time i'll just keep learning and familiarizing myself on new skincare products. This informative beauty class was on ANOTHER LEVEL. Also I must shot out Neiman Marcus Bal Harbor for their out of this world banana bread that was available to snack on... it was dangerously delicious. I'm convinced that with all the newly released skincare products I doused my face in, I look as if I just came out of the womb. Graphic I know, but I can't find a better metaphor to compare how rejuvenated my skin looks and feels! We live in a generation that women and men don't have to wait until their 65 years old to start wearing some sort of night cream product recommended to them on QVC. Take charge of your skins health now and educate yourself to the products out there! 


I also linked my outfit that I wore down below!

a salty soul x fabulousy floridian






No shoes, no shirt, no problem is my mantra when it comes to dress code down in the Florida Keys. I think this might have been the first time in a long time I wore more than just a big tee shirt and flip flops out to dinner thanks to A Salty Soul! If you are not familiar with this effortlessly cool costal outfitters, they are based in Nantucket, MA, one of my dream vacation spots!

Through their business they are able to provide for the boys & girls club in their area with the chance to live life on the water through various ocean activities; how awesome is that?! A Salty Soul was kind enough to send me two pieces from their collection, they fit my lifestyle (and closet) perfectly! A striped tee is a must when it comes to anyones summer wardrobe, the beauty of it is that it can be worn over your swimsuit, or you can dress it up with some denim for the evening time! Not to mention, I can't stop raving about their "seas the day tote." It's the perfect weekend travel bag that can double as a beach bag!

Make sure to check them out, I know you would love them as much as I do!

to new beginnings!



So, sophomore year of college is officially in the books! It's kinda obvious I've been putting posting on the blog on the back burner of things I need to get done, this past month has just required so much out of me between studying for finals and trying to transfer schools. Gah. That's another story I should probably update you all on. A little news flash too, no matter what it may seem like on the gram, we all kinda don't have it all together and that's sort of comforting that we are all in this together and learning as we grow! 

Most of the time I tend to find myself living in my own fantasyland where everything in my mind consist of all things good, you know rainbows and gumdrops sort of mentality, which isn't a bad thing BUT GOSH, I CAN BE SO OBLIVIOUS TO REALITY, LIKE WAKE UP FROM DAYDREAMING JILLIAN! I must give a special shout out to my mom for always bringing me back down to reality. I such a pisces lol. Long story short, I found myself not registered for classes at both FAU or UCF (I'm waiting for all my grades to be posted before sending out my application.)

 Registration? oh I don't need to do that, I'm gonna get in for the fall and their is no doubt about it! I would repeat this to myself. It wasn't until the felling of unease for the unknown kicked in and I had to quickly get my shi together and come up with a back up plan! I frantically met with my advisor and I'm still blowing her her email like a loon, but now rest assured I have something to fall back on if things don't work out! To be honest, the feeling of uncertainty bugs me beyond believe, but what I've learned through all of this mess to rest on the promise that wherever I may end up, is where i'm meant to be! 

I'm making a self promise to myself that wherever I may end up at, I will make the most out of these next two years before I graduate. During all of this, it was so easy to just beat myself up over not knowing where I should be at, where I should be living, etc. but I've came to the realization that I can do absolutely nothing about the decisions I made in the past, no matter how hard I dwell on them. But what I can do is to only go forward and make the most of any situation presented to me! 

Now that my TedTalk is officially over lol... I'm so excited summer is here! One by one my friends are coming back home and we've solidified that we must make this a summer the best one yet! One last summer of fun and not having major responsibilities to weigh us down. I'm overjoyed for the new experiences, new adventures, new friendships and new opportunities with this season ahead of me!

easter inspo. 2019




If you can't tell, I'm a big fan of springtime. I love the beauty of how spring time signifies the "rebirth" of nature and everyone collectively wears my favorite color pallet, pastels. Since Easter is right around the corner I thought I would put together a handful of my favorite spring pieces. It was hard not to include everything from the Gal Meets Glam collection, ugh I cry. Each piece is beyond stunning, I need to get my hands on one of those dresses asap! To not be incredibly biased, I included a wide range from other designers and retailers that are perfect for the spring holiday!

Like always you can shop by clicking on the highlighted links or by clicking the photos down below!
