5 Beach Getaway Essentials Every Girl Needs

Lately, I’ve been dreaming of my ideal weekend beach getaway. With the weather getting warmer here in New York, Summer and all that it has to offer has been on my mind. I just want to feel the warmth of the sun on my skin, bathe in the crystal clear waters and relax with friends and family on the warm, soft gold sands of my favorite beach. I don’t know about you, but when I go to the beach I just need to have my essentials. There are certain things I just can’t live without when I go on a beach getaway with the ones I love. These are just my beach necessitates I recently teamed up with up HomeAway and today, I’m sharing my “Top 5 Beach Getaway Essentials Every Girl Needs”. Enjoy xx ♥  Beach Getaway Essentials

Music On Repeat

FullSizeRender-2I haven’t done one of these in forever and I’ve been listening to some amazing music. Life has been surprisingly amazing. I’m currently in Florida on vacation and thankfully my dad has a house out here so I didn’t have to worry about finding somewhere to stay. I’ve been here since July 1st and getting away from my regular life in Connecticut has been amazing. I just love the Florida weather and I’m actually considering moving out here next summer permanently just to be close to my family. While I’m here in Florida I’m just enjoying the weather, doing some homework from my summer class and then listening to some awesome tunes that I just have to share with you all. BTW has anyone seen the new Balmain Fall/Winter 2015 ad campaign featuring the Jenner girls and the Hadid sisters? They all look so amazing. I love this new ad campaign and the vision behind it. You can check out pictures on my Facebook Page.

The Sunday Social

Hey guys, I’m finally back after taking a 2-week hiatus from The Kiss Of Joy. I am so sorry but life just got in the way and I had no time in my busy schedule to blog. I recently started my Sophomore year of college and I also got hired as a Marketing Intern for Born in Brooklyn Skincare (you guys have to check out their website by the way, they sell some amazing organic skin care products), so my life recently due to my new classes has been pretty hectic. The last two weeks I’ve been trying to balance out my school work and also personal life, so blogging had to be put on the back burner for a bit. I’m fine now and I can’t wait to tell you guys more about my Marketing Internship once I start on Tuesday. I was thinking of doing like a bi-weekly update for The Kiss Of Joy so you guys can experience it with me. Ahh I am so excited. To be honest I was so shocked when I got hired but I know it was destined to be. Also before you guys go, check out this weeks Sunday Social below. Have a great week my loves ♥

August Playlist ♥

With only a couple more days until August is over I thought now would be a perfect time to share my August Playlist featuring the songs I have been jamming out to lately and singing  in the shower so loud you would think I have an audience lol 😀 I swear August went by so fast and I’m just not ready for Summer to be over yet. My summer was amazing but now since August is ending and September is nearing, my life is about to get 10x more busier. This Fall I’ll be juggling three classes and the kids I nanny after school activities and also their school work, but I know I can do it. I’m not freaking out all to be honest. I’m someone who just takes each day one step at a time. I have no room in my brain or my life for worries. One of the tricks I use to ease my mind is music and this is why I’m also sharing my new Playlist with you guys. Music is so calming and it doesn’t matter what genre it is. Once I love the song it just takes me to a new place and let I let go. You can listen to my August Playlist below via Spotify and if you guys love these songs, you can look to the right in my sidebar and download My August Playlist via iTunes ♥
