What's your Mantra?

Let me tell you about


Looking for a perfect gift for your best friend, sister, girlfriend (for the guys out there reading my blog) or even for yourself? Look no further. These cute little bracelets come in three different colors - silver, gold, and rose gold with beautiful messages engraved on them. The range of options you have to choose from are truly remarkable!

Let me tell you which 5 Mantra Bands I have, and if you want to shop them too - they're all hyperlinked! So just click, and shop away :)

1) Not All Who Wander Are Lost

2) Alis Volat Propriis (I felt the need to italicize that because it's a Latin phrase which means "she flies with her own wings")

3) Dream BIGGER

4) Love Yourself

5) Hakuna Matata


Well, I love them ALL! But my absolute favorite would have to be the yellow gold "Not all who wander are lost," which so happens to be very applicable to The Traveling Dot.

Here are some pictures of how I wear my Mantra Bands - they're great to wear individually and also stacked (some people are against the whole mix & match with gold and silver, but you'd be surprised how good the combination of the two actually looks).


Who says gold & silver is a no no?


Apparently this top is a hit (because whenever I wear it I get compliments on it or people ask where it's from).

So here's my first outfit of the day post for you guys.

My cutout long sleeve top is from Urban Outfitters. It's sort of a burnt orange color - very autumn-like. BUT living in SoCal allows for this to be trendy even in the winter! I paired this top with my high waisted navy blue skinny jeans from 7 For All Mankind Jeans.

To finish it all off, I completed my outfit with the cutest faux leather black boots from Forever 21. As for my accessories, I wish I could tell you where my purple gold heart necklace is from but I've had it since I was 14. But my ring I recently picked up from a cute little gift store in Utah with a tigereye brown stone.

And there you have it - my very first OOTD for all you lovelies!


My favorite beanie this year has got to be this pink knit one from Sand Cloud!

Shop here

Unfortunately, their pink beanie is a limited edition one but keep checking back for stock :) and they also have the knit beanies in Heather Grey and an Orange Speckle color.

That's it for now, but stay tuned later this week for my post on Christmas in Deer Valley, UT.

Happy holidays, everyone!
