Hey guys! I hope you’ve had a great week. If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat, I’m sure you’ve seen that I was in Florida for the past week. I was visiting family in Jupiter which is located in southern Florida about 30 minutes from Palm Beach. Jupiter is a great because it has everything you need– whether it’s the beach, great restaurants, entertainment, or shopping you can pretty much find it all within a 10-15 mile radius! Throughout this post I’m going to share with you guys a few of my favorite spots that I visited while I was in Jupiter!
3 Natives is a local acai and juice bar with an incredibly delicious menu. They have two locations in the Jupiter area and they pride their business on protecting the environment and supporting the local economy. Their menu consists of yummy acai bowls, smoothies, sandwiches and wraps, salads, cold pressed juices, and bagels! I visited 3 Natives at both locations when I was in Jupiter and throughout that time I tried “The Bird” acai bowl, “Coco Loco”, “Pink Dragon” and “The Pump” smoothies, an Everything bagel with cream cheese, and the Hummus Wrap. Everything I tried was delicious and I would definitely recommend this restaurant because you can order anything on their menu and it will not only be delicious but also healthy and sustainable. Below is a picture of one of their acai bowls. Visit their website to view the full menu and read a little more about their lifestyle!
So just thinking about this place gets me hungry for Mexican…and it’s nine in the morning haha! Thats truly how good this place was. I had the chance to visit Calaveras for lunch one day that I was in Jupiter and it was nothing but outstanding. The service was great, the environment was unique and eye-catching, they had a ton of creative margarita choices, they made fresh guacamole right in front of us, and the food was amazing! When I was there I munched down on some chips and queso, tried the Pineapple Coconut and Cadillac Margaritas, and then finished my cheat day of with the delicious Queso Enchilada. I would definitely recommend Calaveras if you are in the Jupiter area. It is located in the fairly new Harbourside Place which is a great place to knockout some shopping and walk around and look at the yachts parked in the harbor. I can’t wait to go back next time I’m in Jupiter. Click the link above to read more about their business and view their menu!
Shopping and Leisure
I’ve been going to this mall with my mom and grandma since I was a little girl and the mall magic still hasn’t changed a bit in my eyes! Guys, this mall is absolutely beautiful and glamorous. Every time I go shop at The Gardens I feel like I’m shopping in a movie! Some of my favorite stores to visit at The Gardens are Lululemon, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Anthropoligie but that doesn’t even begin to name all of the stores and restaurants that are featured here in this luxurious shopping destination. Another great aspect of the Gardens Mall is that it doesn’t just end with the mall but there are also other great restaurants, stores, and even a movie theater within less than a mile of the mall!
While I was in Jupiter I visited the Jupiter Beach Resort and Spa to get a massage with the girls in my family. Upon arrival I immediately knew it was going to be a great experience. Before we even made it down the steps the front desk had our keys for lockers ready and had already assigned us our masseuses. No waiting at all! After our massages we headed out to eat lunch at the pool bar and sit out by the pool. The facility itself is gorgeous and sits right on the beach, the service is great and the food was also delicious. My experience at Jupiter Beach Resort was great and I would definitely recommend it to you ladies who are craving a spa day in the Jupiter area! Visit the link above for more info on what Jupiter Beach Resort has to offer!
I have been visiting Juno Beach since I was a little girl and it truly is a beautiful beach. Not only is it very clean, but the beach was just nourished a few years back so it is an extremely comfortable and spacious beach to lounge on or walk up and down. There is a huge pier that gives it the beach town feel, and there is a park very close by if you want to let your kids play and eat lunch. Another cool thing that is very close by is the Loggerhead Marine Life Center which holds marine life exhibits and rehabilitates sea turtles! They also have tours where you can go through and see the exhibits and the sea turtles who are recovering from an injury so you can check out those times at the link above.

Hey guys! I hope you’ve had an awesome week. I can’t believe this year is almost over, it’s seriously crazy how much has changed since this time last year! This time last year I was getting ready to finish up my sophomore year of college, hadn’t been anywhere outside of the United States besides Nicaragua, I barely ever lifted weights, I didn’t hang around people who pushed me to be my best, wasn’t a member of the Appalachian Apparel Association, and I hadn’t declared my major as Public Relations yet. Now I’ve traveled some of the biggest, most amazing cities of Europe. I’m the strongest I’ve ever been and I met my boyfriend and so many other friends who inspire me to be the best I can be every single day. I was elected as Vice President of the Appalachian Apparel Association, and I’ve used what I’ve learned in just one semester of being a PR major to manage the AAA social media accounts and website along with my CollegeFashionista Style Guru internship. Wow. That was a mouthful haha! I’m sure you all can say the same things about the progress you’ve made this year and look back to about a year ago when, like me, you never would have believed that you could accomplish the things that you have. The point of me telling you guys the details and progress of my last year is that no matter where you start there is always room to make positive change. Progress is progress no matter how fast or slow so whenever you lose hope or motivation look back to a year ago and focus on all the positive change that you have made, because I’m sure it’s leaps and bounds! Never underestimate yourself, because with hard work, time and faith you can accomplish just about anything.
So, onto this look! I snagged this top at a J Crew sale a about a month ago and it’s just the perfect shade for spring! Unfortunately I found this top on clearance so it’s no longer in stock but I tagged a couple very similar options so that you guys can recreate this look on your own. I paired this top with my Blank NYC black cutoff shorts and a pair of lace up white heels that I got from Lulus! I accessorized this look with my rose gold Tory cuff and Mantraband and my black Fossil watch. I finished my accessories off with a fedora hat that I got from Darci & Co. a while back, and my Urban Gem “Sophia” necklace which is only available with a Rocksbox subscription but I tagged a very similar Baublebar necklace above. Thank you guys so much for checking out my site and stay tuned for more posts coming soon. I hope you guys have a fabulous weekend, and if you have any comments or questions about the post feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment below.
