Wrightsville Beach (and giveaway winner!)

[School starts tomorrow! *yipes*]
For someone who used to despise summer (pasty people usually hate the sun), I definitely embraced the heat this year, and scored my first tan in the process! (It's nothing major, but it's a huge deal for me and all my RL friends have taken notice.) Here are some pictures from our recent trip to Wilmington/Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina that will make us all wish for sand in our cracks, salt water choking us half to death, obligatory jumping photos, funnel cakes, and me to stop wearing this red one piece bathing suit.
The night I stepped in a grisly pothole because I was too focused on scarfing down this baby
 That one day I wore a bikini for the first time in two years *gasp*

Last day in town was spent playing in the water for 8 hours...and chugging drinks in between. 


































There's still time to get your beach fixes in if you haven't this summer!
And now for the winner of my first little giveaway.......drum roll........sweet little Miss Jazz of Jasmine Jewel's A Gemini!! Congrats, Jazz. I'll email you right away. Thanks to all who entered; I hope we're still friends ;)
Have a lovely week, dolls! xo

    1. I'm trying to hold on to it as long as I can! I never fell more in love with summer than I did this year. And for many reasons like these beach photos. :)
      Hehe, yours will be here soon enough and I'll be freezing my ass off in the cold.

  5. RONI where did you get that excellent cat dress from? SO CUUUUUUTE. Aaghh I hate summer and the beach but your photos actually make it look like fun. Last time I went to the beach I got caught in a rip and it was SO FRICKIN SCARY. Is your heartagram tattoo because you like HIM? Because HIM is a cool band. Goodbye!

    1. Girrrll, I got it from Zara 'member?? I looked up on their website to see if they were selling it there too for you, but no :(
      Mikey was telling me about rip tides and they sound terrifying. No wonder he told me after we'd swam for the last day. I wouldn't have gone back in! I'm a big scaredy cat in the water, but I try to convince myself to lighten up best as I can so I can actually enjoy my beach vacays.
      And yesss! That old tattoo is for HIM. I used to love that band and I just liked the symbol. Sort of a love/hate, good/evil kind of thing.

    1. Thank you so much, Rachel. :)) You're too kind.
      Yup, those are my natural curls. They used to curl more before I did some damage courtesy of my straightening iron. I don't straighten my hair as much so that my curls can come to life once again. I just love them!
      Glad we're still friends! ;)

  7. Hope your first couple of days back at school have been good. The summer flew by. I wish I lived near a beach - so jealous!! I haven't been swimming/worn a swimsuit all summer :-/. Your bikini is cute lady! I love the last group of photos - such good poses :]

    Congrats Jazz!!!

    1. I never cared about living near a beach more than I did this entire summer. Now I just want to go back and play forever! hehe School on Monday morning was such a wake up call. I was like, "Holy shit, this is actually happening again." lol But it's been fun. Draining, because I wasn't used to it anymore, but fun. Nice to get back into an actual swing of productiveness.
      Thanks for the sweet comment, Allison! *hugs*

  8. Ok that funnel cake would've made me trip too! Your bod is hot maam!!! Love the "Hit em' with the flex!" pose that Mike did! That red polka dot bathing suit is to die for, and no we can't be friends anymore since I didn't win the giveaway! JUST KIDDING!!! :) Congrats Jazz!!!

    1. Haha I'm glad I'm not the only one who blocks the world away when they're deep in a funnel cake (or any tasty snack for that matter). I seriously hurt the crap out of my foot but I was so involved in eating so fast that I shook off the pain pretty well. The next couple days I had to wear bandaids and keep reapplying ointment on the little gash just so I could wear flats comfortably! Oh well, alls well that ends well I guess. And that funnel cake was the perfect ending to a nice night. :)
      Always a pleasure to read your comments, Trice! Have a wonderful week!

  10. Yeah yeah yeah I'm still your friend even though I didn't win your giveaway. I'm glad Jazz won though--she's so awesome and it's like I won by proxy or something.

    And can we talk about you in that 2-piece? BABE. But what am I talking about? You're always a babe. I think I just liked seeing all of your tattoos out for the world : )

    Besides that, these are my favorite pictures in no certain order:
    -funnel cake/awesome cat dress
    -the "accidental" flex pose
    -that cartwheel. THAT CARTWHEEL.

    And this makes me think of the first comments we ever gave each other! They were lists and you talked about how much you knew you were going to like me because I lived in Mississippi and I made a list in the comment I had left you! Is that weird that I remember our first comments to each other? I THINK ITS AWESOME. : )

    xo, My Billie

    1. I feel the same way when my friends win giveaways I enter, ha!

      Awww thank you, love. I did think to myself, "Oh, here go the rest of my tattoos for the world to see." I forget that, duh, people don't ever see the ones on my belly. It's a bit revealing. I'm glad you enjoyed them though ;)

      Oh, lists! I DO remember our first comments regarding "lists"! How could I forget our bond for that and Mississippi?! You're talking to a girl with a ridiculous memory. I don't forget much. I'm SO touched that you're obviously the same way ♥ Thanks for the short trip down memory lane, doll. And thanks for the most thoughtful comment ever!
