|Love the silhouette of this dress and the lush floral print!|
|Cat eyeliner and a soft updo|
|The perfect outfit for a Parisian rendez-vous- right down to the cat eye sunglasses|
|So dapper! Love the skinny tie and hats|
|White Cotton Sleepset|
I am so excited about this little sleepset! Usually, I wear some of the most unattractive things to bed- a.k.a work out clothes, old mismatched clothing. So when I saw this sleepset I was excited to actually feel pretty and comfy in this chic little white cotton set perfect for balmy summer nights
I saw this brightly colored maxi and knew that it would be the PERFECT cover up for the pool/beach. Throw on some wedges and you are good for a casual night out!
Perfect for hauling all my stuff to the beach/ pool! Trust me - I usually bring enough stuff for me to camp out there for 3 days/ solutions to any situation that may pop up
I am also OBSESSED with the original Calypso St Barths line. To say the the Spring / Summer collection is drool worthy is an understatement! See the link to the website here.
The price points are much higher , but I am thinking about purchasing a statement dress from there as my summer "go to dress".

|Oil of Olay Daily Facial Cleansing Cloths|
I have had issues with my skin and blemishes my ENTIRE life! I go through stages where I am super clear, and then stages where I have horrific, deep blemishes! However, ever since I have been using these budget friendly cleansing cloths my skin has been consistently clear! I really like the fact that they are disposable (therefore, uber hygienic), very inexpensive and remove all my makeup in an easy swipe
|Voluspa Macaron Candle|
When strolling through a boutique yesterday my eyes immediately darted to the word "Macaron" (french for "Macaroon"). After smelling this lightly sweet candle I was instantly transported back to Laduree Paris- because this is exactly how this candle smells.
It is lightly sweet and delicious - in other words perfection...
|Laduree Rice Powder Home Fragrance|
Speaking of Laduree..I first smelled this delicate, powdery fragrance in a small perfume shop in France. I am still kicking myself for not buying it - because it was a true love affair.
However, now the whole line is available in the US or online
Imagine what you think the clouds of heaven may smell like and you have this room spray.
From the atomizer, to the pink enamel bottle , to the gorgeous box it comes in- fabulous!
Creed Virgin Island Water
When I smelled this fragrance on a co-worker last week it smelled light and fresh and just slightly coconut in it's undertones. It was if one had taken a shower in the purest tropical water, and you could still smell the ocean breeze on the skin. Usually, I detest(!) tropical fragrances because they smell so loud and overly synthetic - really not what an island destination smells like. Virgin Island Water cannot be classified as a "tropical" fragrance but maybe as a super exclusive romp on a private beach in the Virgin Islands..
The perfect spring /summer fragrance!
|The perfect casual yet feminine look|
|Can we please talk about the hair? So pretty and tousled while still looking brushed!|
|In French Vogue.. loooooving the stripes with the polka dot tights!|
|In crisp all black and Chloe sunglasses|
|Love the mix of fabric and textures with amazing shoes|
|All black and the perfect little cherry red dress|
|Simple and stunningly angelic in white|
