Summertime Glam

Beach
Hat: Topshop  / Swimsuit: Proenza Schouler  / Sunglasses: Prada / Shoes: Nine West  / Sunscreen: Sun Bum  /  Handbag: Michael Kors / Earrings: Elizabeth Cole / Lipbalm: Marc Jacobs


My beach and or pool must haves! I have always adored one piece bathing suits and this lovely is incredible because it accents the good and camouflages the not so good parts! An added bonus is having no straps which make for an amazing even tan and no unwanted tan lines ;) These wedges are perfect for dressing up or down #score and did I mention they are extremely comfortable! Always, let me repeat, always wear SUNSCREEN! This is one of my faves because it glides on smoothly and doesn't leave an extremely greasy residue. The handbag is perfect because it is small but can hold a ton which is always a plus. I am so in LOVE with these earrings. They give me that glamorous feel and add a touch of sparkle to any outfit. I have had these sunglasses for ages and I still LOVE them as much as I did on the day I purchased them. Any SPF lip balm will do because lets be honest burnt lips aren't cute. Let me know what items you can't live without for the summer down below and until next time......

Febuary Beauty Favorites

February Beauty Favorites
This is my new holy grail pink blush. If you know Mac then you know their blushes are phenomenal and this gem is no exception. It is the perfect pretty pink. With its satin finish it gives the cheeks a perfect glow. I love this blush so much I am 99% sure I will be wearing it on my wedding day in June.

The love for this foundation is more than I can actually express. It blends out smoothly and gives a full coverage finish. What else could you ask for? The lasting power is remarkable. It actually looks better as the day progresses.

The perfect neutral pink! It's perfectly fine on its own, however I prefer to mix it with other lippies. Another score about this product is that is affordable and has surprising lasting power. #WinWin

This is the BEST drugstore primer! This primer feels in pores, fine lines, and smooths out skin like no other! It allows the makeup to lay perfectly on your face and keeps it there all day.

What is life without a matte eyeshadow palette. All but one of the eyeshadows are matte in this palette. The lightest color which is perfect for highlighting has a soft sheen. Urban Decay eyeshadows are some of my favorites. They have some fallout but the pigmentation makes up for that. The eyeshadows blend out exquisitely. This is my GO TO palette. I love a good matte eye especially with my hooded lids.


Hope you all enjoyed my favorite beauty products for February. Let me know in the comments what you have been loving and until next time...

February Birchbox


Another month to share with all of you what I received in my February Birchbox. If you are not familiar with Birchbox, it is a monthly subscription box that sends you 4-6 deluxe beauty samples each month. It's such a bargain and gives you a chance to try out so many products before you purchase them. Make sure to check it out, click here.

This month's box is an extremely well rounded box and exceptional for traveling. No one can ever have enough shower gel, am I right ladies?! Perfume samples are either a hit or miss for me and this one is a tad too sweet for my personal preference, however I have discovered all time favorite perfumes from the samples sent in previous boxes. My hair has way too much texture as it is, so the sea salt spray will be given to someone who will put it to good use. The lip gloss is GORGEOUS! It's nice to receive an exfoliant to try. I cannot wait to dive more into these products and if you receive Birchbox let me know down below what you got in your box. Until next time...

Valentine's Day OOTD


Jumpsuit: Michael Kors, Heels: Kate Spade, Clutch: DVF, Earrings: Kate Spade, & Watch: Michael Kors

Hi Everyone! This is what I wore to my 'Wednesday Valentine's Day Date'. I was extremely comfortable and still chic at the same time while also keeping it casual but not too casual. Words cannot express to you the adoration I have for a jumpsuit! They are a must have and much more easier to wear IMO than a dress. I also swear by Kate Spade Licorice heels! They are so easy to wear and I can last all day in them, highly recommend. For my other Valentine's Day post click here and here. Our date was so sweet. He sent me 3 dozen long stem roses; red, white, & pink which are exquisite (photo on Instagram, click here) then when he came home from work he had a gift in hand and I was more than excited as most are and I tore into the package to find a gorgeous Tory Burch 'Robinson' Black Double Zip Tote Handbag that I have been yearning for for the last couple of months. I will do a 'What's In My Bag Video' very soon, so make sure you're subscribed to my YouTube Channel to keep up to date with my videos. Then we headed out for dinner to Chima Brazilian Steakhouse for a very quaint and romantic dinner. That sums up my Valentine's Day Date let me know what you did or are doing for Valentine's Day in the comments and until next time....
