I’ve been having lots of firsts lately. Trying out things for the first time, going to new places and meeting new people that my mind has been in a bit of a jumble lately. So much to process and not enough time to process it all.
I’d just written this long novel of a blog post and deleted the entire thing because it didn’t seem fit, and was a little too heavy for the fun and amazing day I just had — anyone else feel like that sometimes? So for today’s blog post, I’m gonna leave you with more pictures and less words, and hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed all the new experiences I had in them!

I was in the sixth grade when I was told by my ophthalmologist that my eyesight was far from perfect. Since everyone in my family wears glasses, wanting to be a part and look like the rest of my family, I was actually excited at the time. Since then however, I’ve had this love/hate relationship with my prescription glasses. If you’re like me, you could probably relate. I can never seem to find that pair that looks and feels just right, that is, until I was in New York and came across the Avoce Eyewear brand. I instantly fell in love with their sleek, modern designs that compliments my personal style. They’re very trendy and chic, making them the perfect accessory that puts the finishing touch to my look!
Avoce Eyewear is a premier online eyewear boutique offering affordable, fashion-forward glasses for women. Their simple, all-inclusive pricing ($99 for Avocê’s sunglasses and prescription eyeglasses, and $169 for prescription sunglasses) makes them the number one choice for the woman on-the-go. The best part of it all is their free Home Style and Trial Program which gives you the chance to select up to 3 Avocê frames to try on in the convenience of your home for up to 5 days. You even get free shipping and a 30-day return policy, just incase you don’t love them!
Since it was time for me to get myself a new pair of glasses, I recently took advantage of their great program and placed my order. My top four picks were the Ariela, Carolina, Mariana and the Penelope. Since I had such a hard time picking, I wore my Avoces to the San Francisco Cherry Blossom Festival last week, got some great feedback from people and was ecstatic to finally make a decision. My pick? The Ariela and Penelope!

Being in Tahoe was exactly what I needed. To get away from the hustle and bustle for a bit and be one with nature. To slow down and appreciate life. To count my blessings and just breathe — It’s amazing how nature makes us do all that!
The log cabin we were in was not only absolutely gorgeous inside, but the views we had of the woods from the balcony, and from the floor to ceiling windows in the kitchen was so picturesque, like out of a storybook, it took my breathe away!
The beauty of it all; nature, the trees, the smell of wood burning, the bonfires, marshmallows and the incredibly beautiful snow fall. It was so magical, the snow — covering every inch of the land. This pristine white cloud-like fluff, untouched, pure, timeless, like heaven’s touch on earth. Cold as it was there, somehow it only seemed to warm my heart and soul, and made me believe even more in all the amazing things this life has to offer! It’s moments like these that makes you appreciate the little things, rejuvinates you and adds that much needed zest to your life — like food for the soul. It brought me back home feeling refreshed, recharged and ready to take on the world!
