Hi, I'm Dara!

Welcome to Living My Someday! 

Here on LMS, I share my Whole30 tips, hiking and travel adventures with my family, motivation + life  lessons, and a few blogging biz tips.

Wonderful One-piece Suits!

I'm ashamed to say that I cried the first time I saw the stretch marks on my stomach. I'd slathered my growing belly with lotions and potions in order to retain my pre-pregnancy smoothness; alas, 'twas not meant to be. That last month proved to be too much for my delicate skin. After I gave birth, however, I realized the sweet little bundle in my arms was worth infinitely more than my permanently-scarred abdomen. 

Feast your eyes on the absolutely

fabulous

one-pieces below. I was drawn to each of these suits because they perfectly captured how I see myself: A fun, vibrant, and youthful woman who runs around on the beach and hoists children in and out of the surf (or pool, or lake, or wherever). I require function

and

style, and these more than deliver.

Most of these suits are more than I'd ever spend, but they still give me inspiration as well as direction when the time comes to shop. Instead of feeling overwhelmed by all the choices in a given store, I can refer back to this post for the styles, cuts, and patterns that truly resonate with me.
