Just another Monday...

This quote is awesome. Ice Cream does make you feel better.
(P.S. No one broke my heart, just find the quote funny).





This is actually a song that my dad always sung to me when I was little. It is supposed to be a happy song, but it almost makes me cry because we never want our sunshine taken away. :/





I think we have all had these kinds of days, especially on Monday morning. However, winter is almost over and spring will be here soon! Cheer up and make the most of your Monday.

Soon we will be able to drive with the windows down blaring our favorite songs like I did this past Friday.

Countdown until Spring begins.....

On a recent road trip to Ocean City Maryland my boyfriend and I had a blast. It was such a spontaneous trip, which sometimes are the best mini weekend getaways. We relaxed, took tons of photos, saw an amazing sunset and pet wild horses on Assateague Island!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Whether you say it with flowers, candy, cupcakes, or jewelry make sure you say, "I Love You." If you don't have a significant other make sure you tell your family and friends how much they mean to you. I know that this is a very consumer driven holiday, but it's best to make the most of it and celebrate the people you love.

My favorite is Matt and will always be! Love you hun! We are lucky to currently be in St. Thomas right now soaking up the rays and sipping on delicious cocktails. :) Don't be too jealous. haha I don't know what I would do without my family and friends and I love you all very much.


Happy Valentine's Day to you and yours!

Faux Fur Vest Obsession

I have been obsessed with the fur vest this winter. Obviously this is vest I am wearing is faux fur, I would never wear real fur. I think they are so cozy and you can just throw them over a long sleeved tee for a dressier look.

My mission with this outfit was to create a look with a belt and a fur vest! I found an adorable Lauren Conrad floral shirt to go under and had a cute brown belt from H&M already and VOLIA! I also love the bronze snakeskin heels. You don't have to do boots all the time in winter so I mixed a fur vest with skinny jeans and heels for a classic look. I also threw on my tried and true Michael Kors gold watch and some bangles to complete the look.

What have you paired your fur vest with to create a unique look?

Derma-Allay Skin Care Review






rePlenish Face Gel





rePlenish Lip Butter





I have been having really dry skin lately from this harsh winter. I am on the east coast and it feels like it has been winter storm after winter storm. My lips and face are super dry and nothing seems to be working. I have been putting on regular face moisturizer and I have tried all kinds of chap sticks and nothing has worked until I discovered Derma-Allay!

A friend of mine told me about the product and I immediately checked it out. Derma-Allay is a all natural skin care company using non-harmful ingredients including natural beeswax. I think what sets this company apart from other skin care lines is the quality of the product. I tried the rePlenish Face Gel and the rePlenish Lip Butter and let me just say that they are amazing products that really work!

The first time I used the rePlenish Face Gel I was amazed. It said refrigeration recommended, which I got excited about because I love when things are cool and refreshing when applied to my face. You only need to use a small amount because a little goes a long way and makes the gel last longer. You just massage it into your face and neck until it's completely absorbed. The smell of the product is incredible and makes for a relaxing experience. It smells like a mix between cocoa butter, macadamia nut, and almonds! Yummy!

After it absorbed into my skin I made my boyfriend touch my skin because it felt so soft and smooth. You can really feel the gel working instantly! My face was feeling soft and beautiful for the rest of the day!

I have been using the rePlenish Face Gel mostly in the morning after I wash my face for a rejuvenating effect, but I would say I probably use it once or twice a day. They also have a under eye gel that I am dying to try! I highly recommend trying this face gel as I have used many and this one by far is my favorite. :) This is a winter must have and also a summer must have once the summer sun hits your face.

Let's talk about the rePlenish Lip Butter. You can tell right when you open it that its not something that was processed in a factory. The texture looks like whipped cream and it's made with natural ingredients like aloe vera gel, beeswax, grape seed, sweet almond, avocado, and vitamin E. I felt it start working after wearing it for a few hours. My lips feel soft and supple all day, which is essential during the winter months!

*A little tip for the Lip Butter: if you like your lip butter thicker, leave the cap off for an hour or so it becomes more thick and creamy when applied. It comes in delicious flavors such as cherry, vanilla and mint.

Ok enough about me talking about how amazing the products are! Go check out their website, follow them on Twitter and "Like" Derma-Allay on Facebook to get the scoop on any insider discounts or new product updates.

(IN)DECOROUS TASTE

How amazing are these shoes and shoe harnesses? A friend of mine told me about a friend of hers who had a really amazing blog, (IN)DECOROUS TASTE. Her name is Lauren and she is girl with a ton of talent and the craziest ideas for shoes that become works of art.

For example she cracked a mirror on the ground and glued the pieces onto the base of a stripper shoe for that cracked glass effect. The results are stunning and I am amazed by her even coming up with this idea.

I love the crystals that stand up on the shoe harnesses, it really makes for a bold look. Ever since I first read her blog I was hooked to see more creations! She is now selling her shoe harnesses in a boutique called Seven in NYC, you can check out her looks at the boutique here.

She also has a portfolio of upholstering old world style chairs, adding crystals to tables for lavish decor, as well as many other things. I highly recommend checking out her website, id-taste.com too, and prepare to be amazed. :)

Nike recently reached out to her and gave her a pair of shoes to create something of her own. She ended up taking red Nike's gutting them and making ruby red sequin sneakers with an added heel. Fabulous!!
