Shop Wavey

Radiate With Style, the theme of a new millennial-founded local sunglasses company, Shop Wavey that I’m recently obsessed with!

Shop founder, Ashley Senecal (pictured above & below) presents her store as summer vibes all year long. While searching for her passion project, Ashley found herself reminiscing about magical childhood summers on Long Island spent at the beach with family and friends. Playing in the sand, swimming in the ocean, campfires under the stars, and selling handmade bracelets, painted seashells and homemade cupcakes. This childhood entrepreneurial spirit is what led her to launch this brand in her senior year of college at URI.

Sunglasses at Shop Wavey are “fun and vibrant,” have a beachy vibe and I’m completely obsessed with them! The shapes are perfect for so many face types – men & women, there is a nice range of colors and exciting new products launching soon! The price point is v affordable ranging between $25-$30, making these sunglasses an easy addition to your accessories wardrobe. Trying new trends without going broke. Into it!!

Shop Wavey just launched an octagon-shaped lens called Soho that are undeniably chic.

Wishing for warmer days soon!

Setting our Intentions for the Weekend!
Setting our Intentions for the Weekend! (Yeah BRO!)

Festival season, anyone? OMG I’m sure you’ve heard about every freakin’ festival out there by now, right? TBH you’re probably saying to yourself – coooooool. DILLIGAF? Nope. This one’s different though – although it’s a music festival, it’s more of a health and wellness festival. So chic. Wanderlust was perfect!!! For those unfamiliar, it’s a glorious 4-day event celebrating community & mindful living. It’s about practicing yoga, being outdoors, eating well, spiritual meditation & relaxation, being green, strengthening, hiking, learning, creating awareness and being surrounded by some of the greatest people on the planet. Also some awesome musicians and a LOT of celebrating life. Overall an amazing event created by Lululemon and attended by thousands from all over the world.

Even made friends - shocking!
Even made friends – I’m getting so much better at this whole “people” thing!

There are various types of yoga classes or meditation seminars or hikes to sign up for. There’s literally something for everybody. Two of my college roomies / BFF’s and I went to Stratton Mountain Resort in Vermont and had an epic and hysterical adventure. I say hysterical because the lodge we stayed in was “as nice as” many of the European hostiles I stayed in while traveling abroad in college. RATCHET.

Saturday we took 3 fantastic yoga classes with fab instructors from all over the world (2 from Washington DC!). My favorite class was called Yogarina (yoga/ballet fusion) taught by Beau Campbell with a live violinist Haana playing and singing 100% improv which was rad!!

MC Yogi‘s classes were sold out – seriously uplifting and a lot of fun. He makes yoga really relevant, exciting and fresh. He played some old school r&b, reggae and hip hop during class – along with some of his personal rhymes. Meaningful share session and he definitely makes traditional vinyasa yoga a ton of fun.

One of my favorite things by far was this DJ spinning inside of the Lululemon D’Om treehouse all day long.

Tons of booths with free samples of really amazing products. Stocked up on Quest Bars (fave!) Lots of vendors with great sustainable, eco-friendly and straight up cool products to buy. Surrendered old sunscreen to purchase new, amazing, chemical-free sunblock from Goddess Garden. Check them out – amazing. Really awesome gear from Folk Rebellion – highly recommend checking them out. I obviously spent way too much money on things like that of course…

Kaitlin got to meet one of her favorite artists, Trevor Hall (kind of a reggae / rock mix). He’s actually the reason why this trip even happened for us. So that was amazing and happy!

I’ll speak for all the betches saying that we enjoyed this festival a whole lot and cannot wait to go back again next year!!

Chiara Ferragni

Not only am I obsessed with taking selfies… I am also obsessed with taking selfies with selfie-obsessed fashion bloggers turned fashion designers. Chiara Ferragni is arguably the most successful fashion blogger on the planet. Her team is responsible for The Blonde Salad. She’s an inspiration to up-and-coming fashion people and writers in general, showing that yes – you can develop a lucrative and successful career, starting with writing and curating your own website.

Major moment with matching sunglasses. Mine, Illesteva.

Head Shots – Bang

Tremendous thanks & shout out to Bellport Web Solutions! Had a blast shooting with my girl Alexandria (@alexyadig – follow her, she’s adorable) and Dan the owner/photographer & of course, our “props.”

Alex invited me a few hours before & tells me, “You’ve got one job, Ash – bring props.” Don’t tempt me with a good time! Fruit hats. Bananas. Stella Artois. TMG Flower Halos. Funky sunglasses. Done & done. Our experience with Dan was fantastic – his studio space is great & his two French Bulldogs rule!

SO, as if you guys needed more of a reason to think Alex and I were legit in love with each other, here’s another one! We look like we’re sisters posing for family portraits as a gift to our parents for their 40th wedding anniversary. With that being said, I F-ING LOVE IT. Red lips are my favorite and this photo is my absolute favorite. Alex is wearing Hourglass lipstick in “Icon.” I’m wearing Chanel lipstick in “Passion.”

As always – the fruit hat NEVER FAILS.
