April Favorites

Hi everyone! First off, I just want to say that I am sorry for not keeping up with my blog as well as I would have liked! I have so many things going on right now, that I think for the time being, my posts will be limited to once or twice a week. I hope you can understand, and I promise to pick back up when my life allows! So for now, I want to share what I have been loving in the month of April. I don’t have a ton of products to show you, but quite frankly I have had too much going on to experiment a whole lot. But I have found a few staple products that have not let me down this month!

Pantene Pro-V Smooth Heat Protecting Spray – I had recently used up my current heat protector, and I wanted to try something different. I have really been enjoying this one! It smells so delicious and I feel like it really does protect my hair when I’m straightening/curling it.

Philosophy Pure Grace Summer – This perfume is like summer in a bottle! I can’t quite describe the scent, but its floral and fresh with a hint of coconut. When I compare it to my other favorite summer perfume (Bobbi Brown, Beach), this perfume isn’t as in your face BEACH as the other one. So if you don’t like the smell of sunscreen, this may be more for you!

Milk Makeup Matte Bronzer in “Baked” – I got this in a mini size that came in a set that I purchased during the sale because I wanted to try a few things out from the new brand. Well out of the whole set, this has been my favorite! I have a ton of bronzers, but what I love is that it is a cream, which is good for my already dry skin. I also love how easy this is to apply. With the stick form, I literally just draw it on where I want it, and blend! it blends so easily and the color is perfect for me. It gives me just the right amount of color, without looking too fakey bronze!

Candie’s Ghillie Lace-Up Flats – I am obsessed with these shoes! I know they are all the trend right now, and I needed to get in on it for myself! These are the pair I found (pretty inexpensive) and I love them! They are actually more comfortable than they look, and I feel like they are the perfect detail to any outfit, even just jeans and a tee!

I hope you enjoyed seeing what I loved during April! Have you tried any of these? Do you have a favorite from this month that I need to check out? 😉

Spring PINspiration!

Happy Saturday everyone…its finally the weekend!! I don’t normally post on Saturdays, but since I didn’t post all week I figured I’d throw in a little surprise post 🙂 I had a very busy week of work and studying for a special test for my career, so that is what kept me away. But today I want to share some of the new spring trends that I want to try. These are things that I have pinned on Pinterest..hence PINspiration 😉 So I won’t keep you waiting any longer, lets see what trends I am dying to try!

Lace up flats – I just love how cute and feminine these flats are! I am drawn to the nude color more than the black. Need to find a pair of these!

Printed shorts – I have seen these everywhere, and I think they are so cute and fun! I like the pin because it looks so casual and effortless! Perfect for the beach, or a picnic!

Stripes and distressed denim – I don’t know what it is about this look, but I love it! I have always been a lover of stripes, and I love how it looks with the distressed jeans. I love that this look can be worn super casual or dressed up a little bit!

Fringe sandals – Fringe has been huge for a while now, but I am loving the look of fringe sandals. I think it so different and fun, and again, can be worn casual or dressed up! I can see myself wearing these a lot this summer!

Have you tried any of these trends? What are you loving?

Spring must-haves

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! Welcome to my first blog post, eek! I am so excited to have started this blog as a way to share my love of fashion, beauty, lifestyle and more! Winter has kept me inside and I have been going a little stir-crazy…so I thought what better way to release some of my creativity?!? To get started, I’m going to share with you some of my must-have items for spring.

We are finally breaking free from winter and spring is starting to arrive, so its time to freshen up our wardrobe! These items all make me feel ‘happy’ and in the mood for spring.

1) A bright purse is an absolute must! I got this one from Target (last year), but don’t worry, they have a brand new batch of colors this year (here) and (here)! This purse is perfect because it is big enough to fit exactly what I need, and the bright blue just brightens everything up!

2) It’s not quite sandal weather yet, but the boots HAVE to go! I love this pair of espadrilles, they are quick and easy to throw on (and comfortable too)! find them here.

3) One of my favorite thing about spring is when the scents begin to change. I recently picked up this travel spray from bath and body works (here) and oh boy does it smell great! The scent is “love and sunshine”, and how fitting is that!? It is the perfect combination of fresh, floral, and citrus!

4) The gray winter skies are starting to fade, and we are finally seeing the SUN (quite possibly my favorite part!). So…a new pair of sunglasses is definitely a must have! The ‘mirrored’ look is very on trend right now, and this pair is so stylish! I’m also not one to spend a ton of money of sunglasses as they usually get tossed in my purse and scratched! I found this inexpensive pair from Kohls (here).

5) Last, but certainly not least, every girl must have a bright lip color for spring! This one is ‘Too faced Melted Liquified Long Wear Lipstick’ in ‘melted fig’. This color is the most perfect purple/mauve and it adds just the right amount of color! These lipsticks are so amazing, they go on so smooth and creamy, and last a long time on the lips! find this color and more here!

I hope you enjoyed my spring essentials! Thank you for checking them out, and stop by soon for more posts!
