One of our new favorite spots in Miami is Dogma. We came for the hot dogs, but we’ll come back for the onion rings with the special sauce! So yummy. It’s outdoor seating only, so make sure to go on a nice day otherwise face the wrath of the Miami heat and humidity.

You don’t gotta go to work, work, work, work, work, work, work
But you gotta put in work, work, work, work, work, work, work
We can work from home*

Working from home is definitely the dream, but just because your not at work doesn’t mean you don’t have to do work. Working from home comes with it’s own set of unique challenges, so today I’m rounding up a few of my favorite products that help get me through the daily grind.

– Strivectin’s Advanced Light Tightening Neck Cream

Being a blogger the ‘Tech Neck’ struggle is very real. So much of my job involves being on my phone. From instagram, to emails, to snapchat, I feel like I’m constantly craning my neck down creating all those lovely little wrinkles lines across my throat. Naturally when I stumbled upon this tightening cream from Strivectin I had to give it a shot. It’s more a of a slow and steady wins the race kind of product, but after several weeks I’m definitely seeing results.

– Tata Harper’s soothing muscle gel

While working from my bed or the couch still beats a cubical in my opinion, I’m still hunched over a laptop up to 8-10 hours a day which completely murders my neck and shoulders. To help de-tense (is that a word?) my muscles I’ve started applying this soothing gel  by Tata Harper at night and in the morning I wake up feeling like a new(ish) woman. It’s basically fancy icy hot that doesn’t burn and smells amazing…I’m addicted.

– Miyu de-stress beauty spray

Working from home usually means that you are your own boss, a simultaneous amazing and stressful fact. When I start to tip over the edge of going from endearingly wound tight to full blown overwhelmed I know it’s time to bust out the spray. It is truly amazing what  aromatherapy and 5 minutes of prayer can do for a girl.

– Nuun energy electrolyte tablet

I don’t drink coffee.
pause for shock and awe
I never developed the taste for it and I was always worried it would stunt my growth. My mom had this thing about how 5’8 was the perfect height and if I drank coffee I would never make it. I also think it’s work mentioning that she is 5’7. We also were never allowed to have coke in the house. A tradition I begrudgingly keep alive one because I know it’s terrible for you and two because every time I get close to buying a pack I hear my mother’s voice in my head. Hi Mom!
Anyways.
To make a long story longer, most caffeinated beverages are off-limits to me, so if I need an afternoon pick me up I turn to Nuun energy electrolyte tablets. They taste great and are a Portland based company, so they don’t have any icky chemicals or gluten or soy or dairy etc…natch. Does anyone else watch Portlandia? Hilarious.

– Gaia turmeric boost

Being a one woman show is great except that there is no one to fill in for me when I am sick. One of my best tricks to avoid getting rundown is adding Tumeric to EVERYTHING. These little Gaia pouches are the perfect boost and are also super convenient when traveling.

As I’ve said many times before the W Hotel property on the island of Vieques is absolutely stunning. But one one of our favorite parts had to be the beach. There were all of these gorgeous rocks/cliffs and marine life, it was a lot to take in. We spent a large chunk of our time posted up on some lounge chairs just listening to the waves and enjoying our rum punches. One of my favorite pieces I bought on this trip was this white button down cover up. After a day by the water, all I had to do was tie it up throw on a pair of shorts and bam, I was ready for dinner!

Back in November when I got to experience the Royal Caribbean’s newest and biggest ship the Harmony of the Seas (more on that later), we made port in the Bahamas. We didn’t have a ton of time to explore, but we managed to get our fill of pastel buildings and cram in a quick trip to the beach. I had just gotten back from a chilly trip to New York, so the warm weather was perfect to thaw me out. I kept my wardrobe simple, a lot of maxi dresses and fun sandals. I also brought along this pompom tote which has become one of my favorite pieces! I can’t wait to use it again during my trip to the Dominican Republic at the end of the month.

PS. if anyone has and Dominican travel recommendations, please leave them in the comments!
