childhood unplugged // escaping the heat

we ventured down the coast yesterday to escape the heat and enjoy some ocean breeze. the kids were stoked, might have been because new sand toys. we don't live that far from the beach and this is going to sound crazy, but we've maybe been to the beach 4-5 times since the kids were born. YIKES! trying to make a point to venture out more. i think they are ready to go back now actually, so we will be planning another trip soon!



 I recently discovered a new subscription box and I have to say I am in love. A box delivered to your door with beautiful pieces of jewelry to wear until you have decided you want to send them back and switch-out for new jewelry. 

Hello Rocksbox!! A monthly jewelry subscription that delivers a cute little package to your home with 3 beautiful pieces of jewelry to wear on loan, when finished you can either purchase 1 or all of these pieces at a 20 percent discount just for being a member.

I love how easy it was too. Simply sign up  for an account, fill out their style survey- which is always fun. The lovely stylists then curate a box based off of your survey and send it to you. This is what I needed! I am so bad at investing in nice jewelry or even buying it for that matter. So this will be great to help build my collection or even just add some freshness as I need it and then decide if I want o change it up. Especially because it's only $19 per month to enjoy some beautiful designer jewelry. 

Want to give it a try?? Use the code antlersandrosesxoxo to get your first month of Rocksbox free!! Kind of amazing right!? Can't wait to share what I received in my first box... And I am excited for future boxes to come!!

her questions

This one.
She is my thinker and a dreamer.
Her soul is so deep and pure, and at times I feel that she is wise beyond her years.
She keeps me on my toes most of the time too, asking questions that really make me think. 
She doesn't take simple answers either.
She has a desire to know more- her how's and why's are usually never ending.


glasses // firmoo review

I have a funny story for you.
When I was in high school I wore glasses. And not for the reasons you would think.
I wore them because I so desperately wanted to. I was envious of others who had an actual need for them.
One day at a random teeny bopper mall shop I found the cutest black rimmed glasses (no perscription of course), and I couldn't resist getting them. From that day on I wore them EVERY.SINGLE.DAY!!
I think I eventually convinced myself that I actually needed them too.
