For my boyfriend's birthday we went to a classical music performance at the Los Angeles Philharmonic show at the Frank Gehry designed Walt Disney Center! It was beyond beautiful and it felt like you were literally in a "sound cocoon". I felt like the sound was vibrating through me!
I have really been into Honey lately! The hand creme was a gift from a dear friend and Nivea Milk & Honey lip balm was a recent purchase that I cannot stop reapplying because the smell is just so delicious!
Late night run to Yogurtland in Los Angeles which is open super late! It looks like I am 12 from the toppings: Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Fruity Pebbles and Cookie Dough!
My boyfriend's cat Digby- I can't get enough of him! I feel like he is my cat too:)
Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Gucci Sunglasses, Vintage Blouse, J. Crew Coat, INC Shorts, H&M tights, Guess Shoes
It is amazing how much more confident I feel at work - more confident, pretty etc. when I put on a dressier outfit and a pair of heels. My workplace is a dressy/ casual atmosphere, but I try to dress more along the lines of dressy than casual. I can't say I always succeed at that but I certainly try! I love vintage secretary blouses, particularly this one because of the bold floral print, and I think they really work when paired with high waisted shorts or skirts.
Happy Friday! I hope everyone has something fun planned for this weekend!

In honor of Valentine's Day Week- I thought I would share my three favorite Pablo Neruda quotes about the essence of love. They all make heart flutter and my eyes water!
I really do have a positive outlook on Valentine's Day with or without a significant other as I feel it celebrates love in all forms, and reminds us to cherish our loved ones.
What I do feel is overdone is the push to get a huge present for someone instead of some thing simple and heartfelt. 
I actually will be celebrating on Thursday with my Bestie and this weekend with my Beau:)
Happy early Valentine's Day!

Macadamia Natural Oil Hair Faves

Deep Repair Masque

Working in the beauty industry I am always on the lookout for new products. However, I have yet to find an oil treatment that smells as heavenly and nourishes as well while not weighing down my fine hair as Macadamia Natural Oil. I have been consistently using  the Healing Oil Treatment for a while now.  I use it  right out of the shower on damp hair to defrizz, before blow drying or flat ironing for protection, or even on dry hair to polish off a style. Let's be honest , it smells so good I also use it just to moisturize my hands!

I just recently starting using the Deep Repair Masque due to rave reviews from all the You Tube Beauty Vloggers and now I am hooked on it too! On Saturdays, I will mince  around my house for a couple hours cleaning , reading etc. letting my hair soak in it. When I rinse it out it feels amazingly soft! It has also really helped my hair withstand the

Lastly, I received the No Tangle Brush with one of their gift packs and can't stop brushing my hair. It really massages my scalp and is so gentle you can even use it on wet hair.
It never rips my hair out the weigh I think 90% of brushes do
I highly recommend Macadamia Natural Oil products, and I much prefer them to Moroccan Oil. They smell even better and don't weigh my hair down the weigh Moroccan Oil does(even Moroccan Oil Light). I swear if you try them you will love them!

What are some of your hair faves? Have you tried Macadamia Natural Oil?

This the first weekend in three weeks where I have felt like a semi- normal person and have not been infected with the flu/plague! I decided I had to take advantage of it but at the same time not over- extend myself.
On Friday, I made a delicious lentil, swiss chard and sausage stew from this recipe and my boo and I finally went to see Silver Linings Playbook(which was AMAZING and worth the hype). We have been trying to eat out less often to not only save money but to be healthier and thus, feel better
Speaking of healthy on Saturday, I had a reunion with some old coworkers for a Girls Night. We gorged on snacks and wine and played Taboo and Cards Against Humanity until the early hours of the morning. I guess life is all about balance because this was definitely not a super healthy night lol! It was awesome reconnecting and it really was the perfect Girls Night:)

On Sunday, I practiced my usual avoidance of Super Bowl. Basically, like every other year I did not acknowledge it was happening.However, this was the first time in YEARS that I was actually excited for the Super Bowl Half Time Show. I mean Beyonce- Hello! I was not disappointed! I really do not know how one woman can be so , well fierce. I am not a fan of that word but it really applies in this case! This sounds ridiculous but she really inspires me to embrace my sexuality and maybe even go out and buy some new lingerie asap!

Overall, the perfect weekend! Hope you lovelies had a great weekend. Did you enjoy the Superbowl Halftime Show as much as I did?
