USE CODE “hayleym25” AT CHECKOUT FOR 25% OFF!

I know that I have already posted about Cenote Swimwear before…
But I got these bottoms and knew that I had to make one more post.

Bottoms: Cenote Swimwear- sold out; but you can score 25% off anything with “hayleym25”

Cenote Swimwear was actually an idea thought up in Mexico because of all the surfers!
While I am not an avid surfer (as much as I would like to be),
I have been surfing!

A little throwback for you: Surfing in Costa Rica last summer!

And let me tell you..
It was one of the BEST experiences of my entire life.
I loved every second of it.
Falling, swimming, slapping down on the board, tired legs and arms…
All of it.
It was an absolute blast.
But what I kept thinking as I was on and off the board was:
I need a better swimsuit for this.
(Sorry Victoria’s Secret.. I love you guys, but your suit was just not cuttin’ it)
So, when I stumbled across this site, my first thought was:
“I NEED TO TAKE THAT TO COSTA RICA WITH ME!”
I love these bottoms so much because of the fact that they have a draw string in the bottoms, so if I need them tighter to keep them on me in the waves, it’s totally possible!
Not to mention, they are SO cute and perfect for a day at the pool too!

If you didn’t already love this company,
one of my favorite things is that the swimsuits are sold separately.
So, when I only wanted the bottoms from this set..
I just bought the bottoms!
I didn’t HAVE to buy the top.. even though it was adorable!
(Remember: broke, college student here)
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
I feel like this post was kinda me rambling…
I guess when I get excited about something I just word vomit.
I’M SORRY.
DON’T JUDGE ME.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Alright.. I’ll stop rambling now.
I got my top from Victoria’s Secret two years ago..
It’s still in great shape so remember that, friends..
It may seem a bit pricey at times, but the quality is GREAT!

Eeep!

So, of course.. This one won me over.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
The material is so sturdy and even has a bit of a shine to it..
Which just adds to it!
It fits perfectly..
Even for tall girls like me!
I am obsessed.

Pretty In PINK DESERT!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
I hope that you all know that when I say something on my blog…
It’s because I really REALLY mean it.
I wouldn’t talk positively about a product that I didn’t actually like or love!
That being said, this is HANDS DOWN my new favorite swimsuit.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Swimsuit: Pink Desert– $38.99

I saw it online at Pink Desert..
Then held it in my hands and my first thought was:
“Where was this swimsuit when I was in Achievement Day Girls or Young Women?!”
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
If you didn’t know, I am LDS!
We are taught to dress modestly, something that is very difficult in today’s society.
ESPECIALLY when it comes to swimsuits.
So, when it came time to get our modest swimsuits, my sister and I would complain and complain to our mom about how embarrassing it was to never get to wear cute swimsuits that were also modest.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Let me tell you, had I had this swimsuit then..
This NEVER would have been an issue.
And you’re probably thinking, cute, modest swimsuits must be expensive..
Think again!
Trust me.. You want to.. You NEED to check out their site.
BONUS: this isn’t the only color combination or pattern that they have on their site!
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
I love this swimsuit even more because it doesn’t just have to be for younger girls!
In fact, when I tried it on and showed my mom, the first thing I said was:
“This is going to be my mom swimsuit when I get older!”
A swimsuit like this is timeless..
SO cute and fun for younger girls and teens,
and offers super cute coverage for moms and older women.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
My review (in short): I hope Pink Desert NEVER stops selling swimsuits because I will be coming back time and time again.
1. The top has a built-in bra with padding so the girls are DEFINITELY taken care of.
2. The bottoms are cut smaller at the waist (like they should be!),
so they accentuate your curves.
3. The bottoms also offer plenty of coverage so you don’t have to worry about too much hanging out!
4. The fabric feels VERY sturdy.
5. I also made sure to take it swimming because I have had swimsuits feel thin and look very see-through when wet..
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
But that is not the case with this suit!
It stayed nice and thick, didn’t get stretchy, and was definitely not see-through.
Pink Desert, thank you.
You just secured yourself a customer for life!
Let’s certainly not forget about my cute watermelon clutch!
Charming Charlie kicked off my summer right with this adorable bag!
Perfect to carry your sunnies, chapstick and sunscreen to the pool or beach in!
Unfortunately, it sold it SO fast online,
but I linked a similar find in the caption because I KNOW you need this in your life.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Clutch: Amazon (similar)– $13.99

WOULD YOU GET A LOAD OF THIS TOWEL?!
Circle towels are the new thing this summer…
And I am HARDCORE crushing on this watermelon towel from Cotton On!
It is absolutely adorable!
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Towel: Cotton On– ON SALE FOR $20

BONUS: they have SEVERAL other cute patterns, so check them out!
TIP: subscribe to their email service and you can get 30% off your first online purchase!
And that’s a wrap!
Please excuse me while I go spend all day laying by the pool in the swimsuit of my dreams!
Talk to you all soon!
xoxo,
Hayley

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
I am back with my second
#SummerHacks
Yay!
Check out the first by clicking HERE!
So let’s get right to it!
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
I am all about shirts/dresses with a high-neck
They are so flattering on girls with short hair or hair up in a bun/ponytail!
I will swear by them from now until pigs fly.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Get it?
A laughing face after I tried to make a joke!?
Hahahah.. Hahah.. Ha..
So, naturally, when I saw that someone had made a high-neck swimsuit
I HAD to have it.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Body chain: Claire’s– ON SALE FOR $10 ; Arm cuff: Claire’s (similar)– $13

I bought it from the sweetest girl who was trying to start up
a swimsuit company that just didn’t work out /:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
In the meantime, I went ahead and found a similar suit for you to check out!
It is from Cenote Swimwear, a company based in Australia
that I just so happen to be an ambassador for!

Guys..
Take my advice..
Go for the high-neck!
You will certainly not regret it…

And that’s it!
Plain and simple!
And yet so soooo beautiful and fun.

Getting Ready for Greece!

I am SO excited to be planning my trip to Europe for winter break!
My sister and I are going to spend about 3 weeks traveling all over
Greece, Italy, France and Spain!
Needless to say, I am over the moon.
Be sure to follow my blog by email below so that you can stay up to date!
I bought this swimsuit from Victoria’s Secret last year
and have been obsessed ever since.
I even took it with me to Costa Rica this summer..
And just might have to take it with me again this year.
I love this suit so much because of how different it is!
Most of my swimsuits are super sporty but
this one is so cute and girly!
I linked a similar one in the photo caption because you need this suit.
I also heard that Victoria’s Secret is no longer going to be selling swimwear…
Which really breaks my heart…
So I am going to need to find a new swimsuit company to obsess over.
If you have any recommendations, PLEASE comment below!

Crown: Claire’s (similar)– ON SALE FOR $5

And, of course, I have been having fun dressing up my swimsuits..
So I threw on this super cute “Greek-ish” crown that I found and it works.
Really well.
You said you couldn’t accessorize your swimsuit?
It’s totally fun.
And that’s it!
Be sure to stay tuned for more swimsuits and my travels!
I can’t wait to take you all along with me!
Keep dreaming about summer break, friends.
We’re almost there!
See you Friday, guys.
xoxo,
Hayley

Joining Taylor Swift’s Squad

 With this suit, I am totally ready to join T-Swift’s squad for the summer.

I would DEFINITELY fit right in.

This suit has that vintage feel while still being modern, comfy and totally adorable.

Swimsuit: Tara Lynn’s– ON SALE FOR $40; Headband: Icing– ON SALE FOR $5

And the red bow headband with the red bow on the top!
I CAN’T EVEN RN.
I am sorry for my excessive white girl moment.
But seriously.. I can’t handle how cute they are together.
Too happy with that combination.
So with that, let’s give a huge shout out to Tara Lynn’s Boutique for this adorable suit!
It also comes in several different colors/patterns so go check it out!
So comfy, fits perfectly..
And the bottoms are proportioned correctly.
They actually get smaller toward the waist like they are supposed to!
Yay!
That’s a wrap, folks!
Please spam Taylor Swift to let her know that I haven’t gotten my summer vacay invite yet…
I don’t want to miss out on all the fun…again.
