Summer Vacation Pics: Part 1

My favorite place on Earth- Petoskey, Michigan.
We come here every summer -- sometimes twice even because we love it so much. It truly is the most beautiful place in northern Michigan. It's located on Little Traverse Bay, about 30 minutes from the Mackinac Bridge. Aside from the unique restaurants and great shopping, it has the most gorgeous views of the bay & Lake Michigan. 

Candy selection at our favorite store- Symon's 

Always finding different things here!

Breakfast at American Spoon Cafe

This bike in downtown Petoskey always has a different theme.

Headed to dinner! {Love my new Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac!}

Chandler's- Our favorite place to eat at in Petoskey! 

Dining next to the herbs 

Grilled chicken breast with arugula, balsamic, polenta, and cherries. 

Little Traverse Bay. Heavenly.

Five things Friday!

Tomorrow we are leaving to go up to our favorite summer vacation spot- Little Traverse Bay in northern Michigan. We are only going to be there for 5 days- but I couldn't be more excited. I am looking forward to eating amazing food, shopping, and relaxing on the beach. There is nothing like it.

Flowers from my sweet husband :)
Strawberry & rhubarb pie. INCREDIBLE.
Went a little crazy with the makeup purchases.
Essie Mod Square. Don't mind the chip on my middle finger..
Found this on pinterest. Obsessed!

Chanel Dragon

This looked like what could be a perfect, dark red. But I was wrong- at least for my skin tone. I so badly wanted to love this color and even tried it two different times. My skin just has too many red undertones for this. And it looks awful on me. It really is a great red, which makes it that much more disappointing. The formula was pretty difficult, too. It was very thick and tricky to work with. First Chanel fail. Boo.
