March Favorites

Pixie Beauty Skin Treats- Glow Mud Cleanser- I've been using this for about a month now and I like it better than any other cleanser I've ever tried.  I think its the glycolic acid ingredient in it that has had a positive effect on my skin.  I am considering investing in the Rodan & Fields line but if this one continues to deliver, I may just stick with this one.  

Kate Somerville Cyto-Cell- To be honest, I wasn't that impressed with some of the products that I've tried of hers.  They're super expensive and most of them didn't measure up to the price. However, this eye cream does seem to make my dark circles less prominent in the morning.  Plus, I like to think I'm diminishing my likelihood of getting pre-mature aging on my eye area.  

Marc Jacobs Remarcable Foundation- This has became a must have for me in the beauty department. Super expensive but so worth it! It literally takes a few drops to get a full coverage look for your entire face.  The only downside to this is the staying power and it does transfer... I use the Becca Cosmetics power with it and I've found that makes it last a lot longer throughout the day.

Soap & Glory- The Righteous Butter- Picked this up at Target and it smells amazing. I normally don't wear body lotion often because I hate the feeling but this one dries and doesn't feel sticky like others I've tried.  It also really helps with dry skin.

St. Tropez Mousse Dark- I picked this up at Sephora and love it.  When you first put it on the color guide will give you a super olive color (literally green) but don't freak out because it washes off and isn't close to the color tan it actually gives you.  I like this because you can be careless while applying and you still don't get spotty.  It also comes off super evenly and doesn't get yucky looking after it starts to wear off. It lasts on me about 5 days and the bottle includes enough for probably 6-10 applications.  It was around $30 for the bottle so much cheaper than a spray tan subscription. 

Altar'd State Bracelet- I've been eyeing the David Yurman bracelets lately and giving Matt hints that is what I want for my birthday but because its so pricey- I found this dupe to last until I (fingers crossed) get a David Yurman.  They're so similar its crazy and this one was under $15! It wouldn't allow me to link this one below but here is the link. 

Hope you all enjoyed my favorites from last month. Thanks for stopping by!!

Vacation Style Top Picks

Friday, April 7, 2017




I wanted to share a vacation style round up of all the things I've been eyeing.  

Kate Spade Hello Beach Hat- so cute for a beach day and for keeping the sun rays to a minimum on your face!

Lilly Pulitzer Del Lago Tunic Dress- Obsessed with the bright print of this one and love how it could be worn as a dress or a beach cover up.

Bauble Bar Drop Earrings- Love the bright color of these tassel earrings and I think they are available in like 4 other super bright/neon colors.  I'm sure these would do the job of brightening up any outfit. 

Bauble Bar Indy Bracelets- The cutest set of tassel bracelets.  Arm party! 

Marc Fisher Annie Espadrille- The most popular wedge of the season.  A must have.  I've been trying to get my hands on these all day but Nordstrom was sold out in store. So cute with OTS tops and dresses! 

Misa Los Angeles Ciao Bag- Need. This. For. The. Beach. Now. Tassels are everything to me right now if you haven't noticed. It wouldn't let me link this one below so here is the link. 

Solids Flamingo Espadrille- Flamingos!! Obsessed with these espadrilles. Also obsessed with these.

OTS TopShop Swimsuit- One pieces are so cute. Also love how its OTS and ruffles. 

Hope you all have a great Friday! Thanks for stopping by!

Bow Detailed Off The Shoulder

Thursday, April 6, 2017














      
               
Hello, everyone! I hope you are all having an amazing day.  I had to send off Matt this morning on storm-call.  He does line work (electric poles) and since there have been storms literally all of the eastern part of country this week, his crew had to leave today so that he can keep the electricity on. Literally the worst part about his job.


I can't seem to ever escape the wind (obvi) or the humidity in Tampa.  
Off the shoulders are going to be all the rage again this summer so you might as well get stocked up. I'm usually not too crazy about stripes on me but this top was a must have. I love the bow details on the sleeve and you can tuck it in for a more put-together look.  I know all of us each have our holy-grail jeans but I cannot seem to part from the Old Navy Rock Stars.  They are just the perfect fit and so comfy. My entire outfit is linked below as well as the lace, powder blue top I posted on Instagram today.

Hope you all have a great rest of your Thursday! One more day till the weekend! :)
Thanks for stopping by!
