Happy 2nd birthday soinspo!

Well.. this Tuesday marks two years on the calendar since I set soinspo up in May 2013! I thought I'd throw a little "Garden Party" in honour of the occasion and let you know that hopefully these coming months will see more action here on the blog! Despite being ever so proud and happy with how soinspo was going last year, I had a bad day and found myself hitting delete on practically all of my posts. I'm fortunate enough to still have all of my treasured photos and I've taken quite a few sets recently, so let's hope by blending those together and introducing new topics, themes and ideas to this little place,  I can get soinspo back into the blogosphere where it belongs. So Happy Birthday soinspo, and thank you guys for all your love, support, encouragement and faith. It means the world! 

Mine's usually a PΓ­na Colada, but second best a jar of summery juice and striped straws! 



Outside chill just got better.....


ASOS crushin'... 


and of course crushin' can't be done without shades and sugar! 


 Jasmine by Jai Paul is my summer jam on repeat. Re-PEAT! You need to go listen to it!

Always better to make plans and write notes while the sun's shining!



 Talking of ASOS, this reflective beaut is already a beach essential!






 Okay, hardly Cali central, but a tropical start to summer don't ya think?!


If you're reading, thank you once again for chilling with soinspo! I truly love you all! <3
