Making Time for Me

Oh if only my husband and I could sneak away for a few days….in a perfect world that would happen. A girl can dream, right?

As a business owner and Mommy of two “me time” is pretty few and far between (although I am lucky enough to have a husband who would let me have some “me time” if I wanted/needed). It just isn’t in the cards. More often than not, there is always something, and when there is that alone time, something happens at the store, or plans have to change for some reason. Its all a part of life though and I wouldn’t have it any other way! Except, maybe if I could sneak away for a couple of days, I wouldn’t argue!

I was invited to be apart of Wallis and Miraval Resorts Make Time for Me Getaway blogger contest. Sounds awesome, right? You had me at getaway! I of course was through the roof with excitement because a Wallis wardrobe would be so welcomed in my closet but a getaway at a resort like Miraval? Just as welcome! I can feel myself relaxing already….

Miraval Resort in Arizona really would pretty much be the best destination ever. Yes, its great to get away to beaches and ocean resorts, but this place would be ideal for a mommy of two/business owner. Talk about stress relieving. I know for sure I would take advantage of all of their spa services but they offer so many other cool sessions and activities. I have my eye on working with the Wellness Counselor on how to become more balanced! A business, a husband, two daughters five and under and a rambunctious dog can make any woman feel like she is teetering all day long!

How relaxing does this look….


Since the resort is in the heat of Arizona, you have got to plan accordingly with your wardrobe, which for me is no problem. I have been known to start planning my outfits for vacations and other various occasions weeks and months in advance. You’ve got to be prepared, right???

This would be my ideal outfit for travel. The cream maxi dress is perfect for an airplane ride. Comfy enough, but you’re still traveling in style. Perfect! “Me Time” here I come!


For an Aqua Zen session, which sounds amazing, a one piece bathing suit is just what I would need! 


Because there is so much to do at Miraval (other than just laying by the pool and getting spa treatments) from photography to drumming, casual but chic outfits would be the best, at least for me! I know I have said this in the past and I will say it again-you don’t have to sacrifice fashion for comfort!!

This jumpsuit is to die for. How cute is it? The lightweight cream shirt would be perfect to toss over the jumpsuit as opposed to a blazer- a lot cooler in the warm temps! What is great about it is you can change the look just by changing the shoes, depending on what your plan is for the day! 


This dress just speaks for itself! The coral bag adds the perfect touch!


I’ve always been a sucker for blazers…this striped one is no exception! I would even wear this flying home! 


Last but not least, another potential travel day outfit! Really- you can’t go wrong with a good blazer AND booties!!


It was hard to just pick a few things, especially with my history of over packing (along with every other woman in the world)! Hopefully I will be able to bring these Wallis outfits to life!

Voting for this contest starts July 10th, so check back with me then to see how/where to vote! I do know that you can vote every hour, every day until July 29th! Don’t you worry your pretty little stilettos, my friends…I will be reminding you on the daily through my blog, Twitterfacebook, and instagram!

Just the opportunity to be able to style Wallis pieces and even dream of going to a place like Miraval is awesome…I’m loving every minute of this already! I can’t even imagine how I would be if I actually win! Do I even know how to relax?? Do I even know how to eat a meal the whole way through without any interruptions? I am pretty sure I can learn quickly! How can you not at a place that looks like this….

Oh and if you haven’t yet, you should definitely like their facbook pages (MiravalWallis) to see the latest news and info for both of them!! You’ll be intrigued!

See you back here tomorrow! Have a great Monday!
