I loveeee this outfit. It’s funny how I seem to love and obsess over the outfits I put no thought into. I seriously picked this outfit out in no more than three minutes, while running late for work and OMG what a success. I know, I know, I’m good. But how cute is this outfit?! So nautical, so clean and clearly following in the footsteps of Princess Kate! Hashtag hairflip!

 

But any who here’s to hoping for more sun in June..

Weekend Getaway Travel Must Haves

Happy Wednesday! Two more work days and then it’s Memorial Day Weekend!! So amen to a three day weekend!!! The boyfriend and I were planning on heading to the Cape for the weekend but the weather in our neck of the woods is going to be so un Memorial Day weekend like. Boooo. But any who tonight on the blog I’m sharing some of my weekend getaway travel MUST HAVES.

Vineyard Vines Vineyard Tote

This tote I LOVE. It’s not the bag I would pack my clothes in because it lacks a zipper but I find sooo many different uses for this tote. I’ve used it as a beach bag, a carry on bag, and not gonna lie, a work bag from time to time. It’s big and heavy duty. The material is sturdy and strong and the bag it self can hold more than you would think. It also has a medium size zipper pocket inside which is a major plus for me, especially if I’m carrying money, my license, keys, etc with me.

Vineyard Vines Heritage Whales Large Cosmetic Case

This cosmetic case is perfect for traveling. It’s large enough to fit not only my makeup but things like my face wash, lotions, hair accessories and what ever else I can manage to fit inside. Not going to lie though, that’s not what sold me on this cosmetic case. I mean tell me it’s not the most cutest cosmetic case you ever did see!?!? The blue checkered inside and gold zipper really add to this case.

Lilly Pulitzer Laptop Case

This Laptop case is A MUST HAVE. And I’m not just saying that because it’s a Lilly laptop case I swear. Ready for this one!? I spilt a little wine on this case while my macbook was inside and OMG if not for the case my laptop would be no more. It’s life saving. It’s great for travel. It doesn’t add any extra weight to my bag what so ever. And hey lets face it, It’s nice to look at!! I get SO many compliments on it.

LongChamp Le Pliage’ Shoulder Tote

Okay, so I know I’ve been obsessing over my new LongChamp bag but for good reason. This bag is amazing. I just spilt coffee on it today and it wiped right off stain free!! And if that’s not reason enough for you to want one of these bags then clearly we cannot be friends. This bag is lightweight and can store quite a lot without wearing down on the straps or my shoulder over time.

New Buys, So What Else Is New?

New Buys, so what else is new? Yeah, that basically sums it up. Happy Saturday beauties! It’s such a beautiful day I’m writing you guys from out on the patio and getting my daily dose of vitamin d. Today I’m sharing some of my latest buys I’m super excited about! I love shopping for spring. White jean season is my favorite season. Wedges season is my favorite season. I can’t get enough of spring fashion. I’ve gotten great deals so far. A new bag, new J.Crew (DUH.) and more to come! Also DUH.

Longchamp Small Le Pliage’ Shoulder Tote

So I’ve been interested and eyeing the Longchamp bag/brand for a while now and finally said what the heck I’m getting it. SO, SO glad I did! I wanted something lightweight, small and something that can take a scuff or two for the summer. And something not so heavy and annoying to carry around on a day trip or something. My boyfriend calls my Tory Tote I have now a suitcase and I’m starting to agree with him. It’s great for work and stuff but for every day use it can be a little much. The Longchamp was just what I needed!! It’s the easiest bag to style, carry around and for the small it can hold quite more than I thought without it getting heavy and wearing on the straps. The variety of colors they offer are beautiful. Of course because I’m me I got the navy blue. But next time I’ll deff be getting a different color.

 

I’ve already said I want to get the large tote next for travel. Oh, and side note look who has one!!!

My girl of course! Hashtag hair flip 

Next to your surprise new J.Crew!! It’s starting to become an addiction but lately I’ve been doing so well at J.Crew. There clothes are to die and fit me so well. I love the nautical and classy vibe their clothes give off. I’m also going to add in I am now a J.Crew card holder but that came with 30 percent off my purchase and free alterations. Free Alterations…def a huge plus for me, I’m short and the white jeans I just got need some serious alterations but otherwise a great fit!! Here’s what I got!

Ruffle Top in Clip Dot

PS: Those sunglasses are next on my list 😉

Toothpick Jean in White

Have a great weekend babes!

May BirchBox

Hello lovlies! I’m alive and well! Trust me when I say it hasn’t been my choice by any means to go a little MIA from the blog lately but work and being an adult is taking over my life but TODAY IS THE DAY. Today is the day I finally was able to set some time aside… If you wanna call pantless, sitting on the edge of the bed, unmanicured nails, messy/rooted hair, wine poured and two baskets of dirty laundry right in front of me “setting time aside” but any whoooo here we are and I’m sharing what came in The May BirchBox today!

 

What’s inside!

Ouai Wave Spray 

s1802107-main-Lhero

To start off, a little advice. DEF, DEF, DEF use this product on damp hair. It says you can use it on dry or damp hair but damp is the way to go. I pretty much have nothing but good things to say about this product. Yes, it is on the pricey side but worth it. It smells great and really does a good job at giving my hair that wavy, loose curl look. I’ve read mixed reviews on this product and I can see why. Although I am happy with the product, I don’t think it’s for everyone’s hair type.

ModelCo Illusion Lip Pencil

Too be honest, not much to say about this one. This product didn’t interest me at all. But I did I give it a whirl! And….. yeah still not much to say. I HATE lip liner. Lipstick does not need lip liner. When I think of lip liner, I think back to the 90’s and my mom. JUST STOP with the lipliner ladies!!! I don’t care if Kylie Jenner is doing it, you are not her!! Seriously had to get that off my chest..but does anyone else feel this way about Lip Liner?But I do have one good thing to say!! The color is pretty. It’s a beautiful, neutral, light pinkish shade. Like it. But that’s about it.

Manna Kadar Cosmetics Glo Illuminator 

thumbnail_Glo_Illuminator_grande

I actually really do like this product. It say’s you can apply it alone for an overall glow or mixed in with your foundation. I was skeptical about mixing it in with my foundation at first but once I did I was like damn that’s good. You actually will notice you don’t need to use as much foundation as you normally would. This product makes up for it. And that glow is AMAZZZ and natural looking. No streaks, non greasy and smells great!

Clarins UV Plus Anti-Pollution Sunscreen Multi-Protection SPF 50 

0129521_original_original_1

As you guys know, I love facial lotions that contain SPF. I can’t stress it enough. SPF does wonders for the skin. It’s all I will use on my face. So of course when I saw this product in my BirchBox I was excited! And for good reason! Surprise, surprise! I love it! Will def be purchasing the full size bottle. It’s so lightweight, smells dreamy and leaves my skin soft and radiant.

Beauty Protector Protect & Oil

I am very picky when it comes to oil products for my hair. Too much can lead to grease and that’s never attractive. But when applied at just the right amount, I really do like this product and am very pleased with it. Again, another on the pricey side but can totally see why. And when it comes to oil and my hair, I will pay more for a better formula and that’s what this stuff is! It really does a good job at smoothing down my hairs frizz and giving it that fresh from the salon shine. This oil has so many different benefits. Heat protection, UV protection, color fading protectant and smells like a dream.
