I’m not only a shopaholic, I’m also a bit of a snackaholic. And a chocoholic too. So when I heard about these new TruFru Coconut Melts launching in Costcos in the Northeast, I knew I had to grab a bag! (Or two!)
I stopped by my local Costco last night to pick up a bag of these new Coconut Melts. They are so perfect for summer snacking. And hey – yesterday WAS the first day of summer, so they launched right on time! During the summer, there’s nothing more that I love than heading to a beach, especially one in a tropical locale. And while I’m there, I love to indulge in snacking on fresh fruit, like pineapple or coconut. Well, these Coconut Melts are a tropical indulgence in their own right – minus the hefty plane fare or trip to a beach. These bite-sized snacks combine 100% real coconut, picked ripe, plus coconut milk. Then they’re frozen fresh and freeze-dried to maintain freshness and lock in taste and nutrition. Finally, they’re immersed in luscious dark chocolate. In addition to the absolutely delicious dark chocolate/coconut combo, there’s also a surprise (natural) crunch when you take that first bite! You may think you’ve already been there, done that when it comes to chocolate-covered coconut, but no, I promise you, you haven’t! These are mildly, ok – pretty addictive – but also guilt-free since they’re healthy. TruFru Coconut Melts are all-natural, trans-fat free, gluten free, and Kosher. I know I’ve found my summer snack – how about you?
Wanna try them out for yourself? There will be a product sampling in Costco locations along the Northeast and Midwest this Sunday, June 23 – you don’t want to miss out!
Also, there is a $2 off Ibotta coupon, so you have no excuse not to try these TruFru Coconut Melts. But once you do, you’ll be thanking me!
Leave a note in the comments to let me know if you’ll be trying or buying these delicious snacks from your local Costco.

Hey DC peeps! What are you doing this Thursday night? Come and check out Peruvian Connection! They’re hosting a hands-on, educational event featuring their special signature Peruvian Pima cotton – the perfect fabric to keep you chic and cool in this summer’s heat! There will be wine, giveaways, and a rare 15% store-wide discount! You can pick up some pieces for yourself, or get some (under $100) gifts for the moms in your life!
So, I’ve passed by the Peruvian Connection store for months, and was always intrigued by the window displays. But the store was always closed! So I was excited when they extended a special invitation for me to come in and take a tour of the store. I stopped by on Monday night and spent a few hours inside with Barry, one of the store’s managers, and Shamari, the store’s stylist! Barry kicked off the tour by giving me the history of the company and how it all launched with one fabulous alpaca sweater coat, over 40 years ago. Fast forward to the present day, and Peruvian Connection now has 7 retail locations across the US, one in London, and a thriving catalog business. At the center of it all is the 100% Peruvian Pima cotton they use in their collections. It is the world’s softest, finest cotton – trust me, it is luxurious! You can read more here about why it’s so special. In the store, you’ll find plenty of Pima cotton separates, from double layer dresses to basics like super long layering tanks. Shamari helped me pick out some gorgeous pieces to try on (and take home). Stay tuned – you’ll be seeing how I style them, soon! In the store you’ll also find a variety of beautiful, uniquely designed pieces made from rich printed silk fabrics, and lush baby and royal alpaca knits, and gorgeous handmade jewelry, and so much more! Best of all, the clothes and accessories are all crafted by Peruvian artisans and the founder remains committed to giving back to the community, ensuring they receive fair wages, and creating economic opportunities throughout Latin America.
The store visit was such an incredible experience. The apparel and accessories, decor, will make you feel like you were transported to a beautiful market in Cusco. And Barry and Shamari further created a truly welcoming experience! But don’t take my word for it – check it out for yourself, this Thursday!

I love to hold on to trendy fashion pieces because I know they’ll probably be back in style at some point again. Take the neon trend. It’s hot and it’s happening right now. Neon on its own seems to make a major comeback about once every decade. This time around, I’ve been seeing a lot of pairing of neon pieces with neutrals. Think khaki, tans, whites and blacks. That’s a bit of a departure from neon looks from the 80’s where the style trick was to just pile it on! We wore neon head to toe, and were all walking around looking like mixed packs of highlighters!
This year’s neon trend is much more classy and refined. I love the pairing of neutrals with neons. It creates a fun surprise within a classic look. My favorite outfit options for pairing neon and neutrals include:
Khaki tench coats and dresses paired with a neon top and white boots
Neutral or neutral print blazers (think snake or check) with a neon top or biker shorts, if you’re feeling fancy!
A neon jacket or coat paired with a neutral dress, or white shirt and khaki pants
A neon top paired with softer colors of the same shade (like a neon pink top paired with a blush jacket and rose pink trousers)
I purchased this neon/acid yellow coat in the Fall and it continues to be one of my favorite and most versatile pieces. It pops on its own, so I usually pair it with a nutral, though I wouldn’t be against adding some more neon to my look because I’m adventurous when it comes to fashion. But in this case, I paired it with a simple tan ribbed dress to really make it pop. Then I added some neutral, colorful accessories to balance out the bright neon with the neutral. Get the look below:
Gap wool fedora
Large Jeweled Crystal Bling Studded Oversized Square Frame Sunglasses
MSGM coat // Similar here and here
Valentino Rockstud printed heels // Similar here and here
Kate Spade crossbody
What’s your favorite neon look or favorite fashion trend of the season?

Living in and loving NYC is a hard habit to break! Even though I’ve been gone for five years, after living there for 10, I still find myself craving return trips to the Big Apple all the time. Like, every few months. Or every other week. It doesn’t help that I’m still on a ton of event and nightlife lists and it seems like every day there is something new, fun and exciting to do or see! Unfortunately, I only seem to get back there maybe once or twice a year. Sad face. I visited back in January but it was so cold out I couldn’t fully enjoy it! The thing I love most about NYC is the exploration – wandering through the different neighborhoods, browsing the stores, perusing art exhibits, random popup shops, and the option to try out every type of cuisine under the sun! In short, I miss it dearly, as you can tell by my outfit. Although if I still lived in NYC, I’d be wearing a black leather jacket instead of a red one.
Am I the only one who pays homage to all my favorite places via my clothes? I’ve lost count of the number of New York-emblazoned tops I own, plus hats, handbags and jewelry. I have a ton of things representing some of my other favorite places too: Tokyo, Paris, San Francisco, LA, and Hollywood. Do you stock up on clothing with the names of your favorite cities, states or countries on it? I’ve linked to a bunch of my favorites, below:
