Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all the beautiful Mommas out there! I hope today you spend the time to thank your Moms for all they have done and continue to do for you! Both Lauren and I are incredibly close to our Moms and we feel so incredibly blessed to have them in our lives- I can’t tell you the amount of times my Mom has been there for me in more ways than one- the times in college I called her crying because I hated my roommate or when I called her before my first job interview asking for advice or how many swim meets she stayed with me ALL DAY and was cheering me on at the end of my lane.

My Mom is so special to me because not only is she there for me all the time, but she really is such an inspiration to me. She is beyond intelligent- starting her own business with my Uncle out of my parents garage. They’ve been in business for over 25 years- I look to her for business advice, for personal advice or just for a good laugh. She worked while both my brother and were growing up and yet she NEVER missed anything- she was at every dance recital, swim meet, baseball game and worked with us on the weekend with whatever school project we needed. She always made us feel special- always. I think back as to how much my Mom really did- and it’s amazing. She is my superhero and I love her beyond what words can express here. I love you Mom!!!

Joan (Lauren’s Mom) is equally as amazing as mine. She too worked while Lauren and her brother were growing up and never missed a beat. I can remember when Laur and I were playing water polo in high school and she never missed a game- always encouraging us to be the best we can. She has been there for Lauren so much in the past few months- we love you Joan!

We feel so grateful to have such amazing women in our lives.

Your Moms are all Superheros- they are. They juggle a million things at once and still make you feel like you are the most important thing in the world. Take the time today to really tell your Mom how much you love her.

These pics are from the girls trips my Mom (plus my cousin and my aunts) take every year- I absolutely love this time I get to spend with them and they are memories I will hold in my heart forever! We’re going again in June 🙂

Happy Mother’s Day!

Raving over Rihanna

We decided to switch it up a little for this weeks WAiSTEDD Wednesday and discuss a particular celebrity’s style that we are totally WAiSTEDD on. As the title of the post may have indicated, we chose to highlight Rihanna- and are you surprised whatsoever? The Lady is SLAYIN’ it! Rihanna exudes style- whether it be on the street or the red carpet.
What we love most about Rihanna’s style is her fearlessness- she can rock a casual denim on denim street look one day, and a nipple bearing crystal number the next night. She is not afraid to take risks and truly wear what she wants- often it seems that Rihanna has many different styles and yet there is still something distinct and recognizable about her style. We can all take a page from Rihanna’s book- wear what makes YOU happy & own it with confidence. Don’t be afraid to try new things and experiment. More importantly, don’t wear things just because they are “on trend”. Wear what you want and find your unique style.
We love Rihanna’s unique picks and her individual style that always looks effortless, edgy and we truly envy her ability to take risks and make it all work. We miss this badie boo on instagram in all her glory! Raving over Rihanna
