Sephora Flash

Hi darlings! Happy Thursday! It’s been an amazing week off from work but to be honest, I’m bored!!! Unofurtunly my boyfriend was not able to take the time off from work with me because he’s basially the new boss man…hair flip! Any whoooo, I’ve had plenty of time this week for myself. Shopping, bubble baths, appointments, etc… But OMG if it’s what thing I can’t stop obsessing over, it’s Sephora Flash Shipping.

LITERALLY AMAZING. I received my online order not even 24 hours after it was placed.

What Sephora Flash Shipping subscription is..

Other than a GOD SEND, Sephora Flash Shipping is a one time payment of $10. That’s right. TEN. DOLLARS. for an entire year subscription on every order you make on the Sephora website with two day shipping…if that. Again, 24 hours over here people. Just saying. 24 HOURS!

What I got..

NARS Sheer Glow Foundation (Punjab-medium)

nars

I LOVE this foundation. My absolute favorite. A little pricey at $47 a pop but totally worth it. It’s concealing. Holds up strong, through heat, sweat, all those bad things that do you and your makeup so wrong. It’s lightweight and blends so well. I swear, I’ve never been more impressed with a foundation before.

My first order and literally why I can see why Sephora flash shipping was invented. My go to, WILL NOT use any other foundation, NARS SHEER GLOW was done. NOT A DROP LEFT. I found myself in a pickle recently. With no time to go to the mall but NEEDED a new foundation because I’ve literally taken a Q tip to apply and get every little spec of what was left of my favorite NARS foundation, until of course last minute me realized I’ve got no specs left.. and that my friends is why Sephora Flash was invented. Because I had my new foundation and three samples not even 24 hours later. Please, a moment of silence for that brilliance.

And don’t forget thats just a ONE time fee of $10 for ONE YEAR. UNLIMITED orders. aaaaaahhhhh!!

Bath Bombing Into Monday!

Hi guys! Happy Monday! Or happy Monday night at this point.. It’s my week off from work so yes, fair to say it was a happy Monday. Oceanside wine, my tan is AMAZZ, a bath bomb…Yupp, not to shabby for B. But in all honesty I woke up this morning and had no idea what the heck to do with myself (boyfriend left for work at 4:45am mind you) and I woke up a lovely four hours later.  Any who, Never DO I EVER have a Monday to myself so my boredom led me to Whole Foods. Purchased the most random things. Including a bath bomb which I’m reviewing for you guys tonight!

Whole Foods Fizzing Bath Bomb (rose petal)

whole foods

Like I said, out of boredom is why I got here. But I’m totally digging these $1.99 bath bombs. I chose rose petal but there’s numerous options… Shea Butter, Milk and Honey, Coconut milk…to name a few.  You may possibly need two bath bombs depending on the size of your bath tub because they are small. NOT THE SIZE OF LUSH by any means, they’re TINY….which is a bummer but work great if you get two!

When I first opened it, THE SMELL is what first got me! It’s SO strong. I got the rose petal one and it literally smells like fairytale.. if that makes sense?! But that’s what I thought of, so hey. I filled my tub up all the way, got in it and then put the bath bomb in. I recommend doing it while you’re already in the tub, the fizzing effect is a la heavennnnn sent.

I realize it is now Tuesday night but TOTALLY forgot to publish lastnight. Oh well!

Long Weekend Packing MUST HAVES!

Hi lovelies!! CANNOT believe the Fourth of July is already here! I swear just yesterday there was snow on the ground. Soooo excited for what’s ahead. My boyfriend and I are headed outta here for the Fourth of July just us two! I’m V excited because not only are we spending a couple of nights away, work free, morning alarm free, but we’re spending a couple nights away in my favorite place. Cape Cod/ Martha’s Vineyard/Nantucket. Yeah, pretty much going to be everywhere! Today on the blog I’m sharing with you readers what I’m packing. Deffff not all because we’d be here AWHILE lol.. So I broke it down into some categories for you dolls.

Currently..

The main travel accessories

Tory Burch Embroidered-t Weekender

 

So the newest accessory to the family is this beauty. A beauty am I right?! Too be honest this is not what I was looking for. Let me start off by saying I was in the market for a weekend duffle bag so that’s why I bought it in the first place. But any who, I originally wanted a Vineyard Vines whale weekender but at the moment Vineyard Vines is only selling the weekender bag both online and in store in the world cup print and I was just like no. Nothing against the world cup just no. Nothing fashionable about that what so ever. So that brings me to this Tory Burch BEAUTY.

I originally saw it on the Nordstrom website first and out of curiosity, I then went to the Tory Burch website where IT WAS ON SALE and still is!! From there I clicked order without a second thought and OMG SO. GLAD. I DID. I am in loveeee with this weekender. I know it’s going to last me a very long time and I’m going to get SO MUCH use out of it. Durable, sooo much space, expandable, zip pockets, optional cross body strap, which I love.

Vineyard Vines Tote

Love this Tote. I mainly use it as a beach bag but it’s great for traveling. I usually put things like shoes, food (of course) my laptop, chargers, all the odds and end things that don’t go in my main travel bag.

Vineyard Vines Cosmetic Case

Another Vineyard Vines goody of mine and one of my favorites. If you’re regular follower of my blog you know I love this cosmetic case and have gotten a ton of use out of it. Not only do I love it for its beauty (the checkered blue interior is my favorite) but for its durability. It’s so well built and fits all of my cosmetics perfectly, which is A LOT. Trust me. So right there you know pictures don’t do justice for what you can squeeze in here. Plus the zipper is V strong. SUPER CUTE am I right?!

The shoes…

Now this is the category I tend to over pack the most in. SHOES. So this time I’m breaking old habits and bringing only three. That’s right. THREE. Ugh, if I regret this my boyfriend is to blame.

Cosmetics..

Another area I tend to over pack in. I just can’t help it!! Who knows what can happen…what if I wake up with a huge blemish and don’t have the right product with me to act fast?!?! Yeah..that’s pretty much how I think when it comes to packing my cosmetics. But seriously “What If?!”

First, my basic everyday makeup/perfume. A MUST.

Second, all the products that I use EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. on my face. another MUST.

Other Necessities 

Annnnnd because we’re going to be in the sun like 24/7 we need protection. Over the course of the last year or so I have really stepped up my skin protection game. Before, I would just go to the beach and oil up with no sun protection what so ever. I never took sun protection seriously. That is until a harsh reality brought me into the dermatoligst’s office with sun spots. Yeah, DON’T EVER want to experience that again. So now I protect!

Picked up these products this morning at Target!

If you don’t hear from me soon..

Have a safe and happy Fourth Of July everyone!

Happy National Wear Your Lilly Day!

Hi darlings! Happy Wednesday! And happy National Wear Your Lilly Day! Anddd happy first day of summer of course!! I celebrated both National Wear Your Lilly Day and first day of summer THE MOST appropriate way I know…bought some new Lilly of course.

 

What I got

Baybreeze Short

I was in desperate need of a pair of shorts for the summer that I can just hang around the house in/ run quick errands in/wear on a not doing much kind of day… you follow? Aka something comfortable, when it’s just SO unbearably hot to wear leggings. Which is why I’m SOO, SOO glad I found these beauties. They’re just what I needed!! Comfortable isn’t the word. I swear it feels like I’m wearing nothing. SO COMFORTABLE. I already know I am going to get so much use out of these this summer. I mean, I’m already wearing them as we speak.

Callahan Short

I’m a lover of Lilly Callahan shorts but I’m even more of a lover of Callahan shorts when in Resort Navy Travelers Palm. ONE OF MY ALL TIME FAVORITE prints from Lilly. And today I was finally able to snag a pair in my favorite style of shorts from Lilly. So win and win.

Paradis Dress

Something, something about this print I like and am always drawn too. This print seems to always catch my eye. Multi Hit The Spot is the name. And OMG deff in my top five Lilly Print favs. And all’s I had to see…. Was this print. In this day dress. ON SALE. You guys really didn’t expect me to walk away from it, now did you..? Because if you did then you donut know me at all.

I mean, how cute?!

Kenneth Cole Shirr Thing

Hi loves! Long over due new post. I’m really trying to keep up with daily posts but it’s so dang hard..If only I could quit my job..lol Anywho, on the blog today I’m sharing this new Kenneth Cole Shirr Thing one piece bathing suit I just got and I’m OBSESSED.

Purchased from Everything But Water for $107

So yes, a little pricey for a bathing suit but the quality of this suit is what makes it. It’s flattering on the body and the material is quite strong. It’s not cheaply made. I’ve been eyeing one piece suits for awhile now and knew I wanted a one piece when I went shopping. One piece bathing suits have seriously come such a long way. It’s fashionable and sexy (according to my boyfriend)

We went to the beach this past weekend and the stares and compliments I got on this suit were numerous. Woman of all ages were complimenting me. It’s different. A stylish/chic different. I find this to be a very classy suit and it’s worth every penny. I already know I am going to get SO MUCH use out of it this summer!
