I'm going on vacation! I can't wait to take a break from life. I feel like I've been dealing with a lot of inept people lately (that sounds rude). I think I just need a bit of a break and just some time to relax surrounded by a tropical rain forest and some Capuchin monkeys. So these are a few things I'll need in my tropical travel packing guide.

Of course, I'll need a tote bag, and this one from Shopbop is pretty awesome because of the petal detail and two-tone colors. You already know how much I love my new passport case and my headphones to just chill out. My water shoes will be perfect for all the outside activities I plan on doing next week, and I'll zen out by reading Girl on the Train. I think everyone is reading this right now. I even hear that it's the new Gone Girl. (I'll judge that for myself).

What are your go-to essentials for plane rides and vacations?

As some of you might remember, #thehubs and I recently bought a house. And while everything isn't ready just yet, I wanted to share what we've been able to do so far -- especially since I know that our family back home would like to see it as well.

We're currently in the process of changing our brown kitchen cabinets to white, so I don't have any kitchen photos this time around -- but soon! Also, we're still in the process of decorating the walls and such, so more to come later on. Much of what you see here was purchased from Crate and Barrel, Amazon, Target and Home Goods.

What do you think of the home decor so far?

Run fast, love slow. To confess -- I don't run much at all. Sometimes I'll run on a treadmill, but I've never been much for that form of exercise. But I do love slow. I like to feel things out before I commit completely. And I've always wanted to be a fast runner -- must be the Jamaican in me -- but that's totally never going to happen.

The point is, I'm loving this tank from the new Boy Meets Girl for Nordstrom collection. This Fun in the Sun campaign features clothes that are perfect for spring beach days and summer festivals. Boy Meets Girl is a flirty contemporary brand created by the lovely Stacy Igel, and you might have noticed me wearing various clothing and jewelry items from BMG.

This tank paired perfectly with these joggers over the weekend. We were exploring our close-by downtown and noticed this really nice backdrop, so we stopped to take some photos before lunch. It was a warm April day here in the Bay, so I really loved how breezy and cool this tank is, as it allowed me to stroll along without getting too hot, but feeling quite haute. I seriously could wear this top with just about anything.

If you like this tank, then check out the rest of the pieces in the Boy Meets Girl x Nordstrom collab. And be sure to learn more about the brand by checking out the site and following BMG on social!
