Whose going shopping at Target on April 19th?!

Excited but rushed was how I felt when my DailyLook Elite box arrived.  It was the day before I was to leave for Hong Kong.  I needed to open that package ASAP, check everything out, try on and style the pieces, quickly decide which items to keep and then pack the others up to return.  Can you say “down to the wire”?! LOL.

DailyLook Elite April Review

I’m always so excited to open the packages and see what is inside, so “rushing” wasn’t something new – it was inept.  Hoping to find some pieces to bring with me on my trip, I ran upstairs with my package and here is what I got!

CLASSIC KNIT JUMPSUIT: I love this romper.  It is one of my favorite colors (haha) and it is so soft!  I was concerned as to how it would actually look, and was pleasantly surprised.  Comfort and style.  I immediately imagined outfit options.

GILES AND BROTHER SKINNY RAILROAD SPIKE CUFF BRACELET: Love at first sight.  I’ve seen a lot of similar-styled bracelets, but this one is different.  I feel like it is a bit more rustic or rugged looking.  It’s adjustable and a nice weight.  A little out of my price range, but if I could I would grab it up!

GYPSY05 DIAGONAL RAINBOW FRINGE SCARF: Beautiful colors and fringing, this scarf could have made it into my closet if I didn’t already have a similar-colored one.  Darn…


POCKETED BUTTON DOWN MIDI SKIRT: I was a little bummed when I saw this skirt, just because I am so not a midi-skirt kind of girl.  I’m petite and I feel like the length stunts me a bit.  Either way, it is a cute style but it went right back.


JERSEY KNIT MAXI SKIRT: Super soft in color and feel, this maxi skirt could easily take me from Spring into Summer.  I love pairing it with a simple white tank or the chambray shirt mentioned below.


JESSLYN BLAKE LEATHER BUCKET BAG: As soon as I opened the box, I could smell the leather from this bag.  It was amazing!  I loved the shape and the rough tassels on the drawstring pulls.  (I have to admit, I couldn’t stop smelling this bag…it smelled soooooo good!)


JACK BY BB DAKOTA KAROLINA TOP: Stripes and I get along very well, so when I unpackaged this tank I was super excited…but it looked a lot better off than on :( Don’t you hate that?!


DAILYLOOK CHAMBRAY CLASSIC BUTTON DOWN: Definitely a staple for your wardrobe, chambray button downs are super versatile.  I liked this shirt a lot, but opted out as I have a very similar one already.


Here are four outfits I made with the box contents.  Of course all go well with the bucket bag and bracelet!

FabFitFun Spring Edition 2015 Review

You know me and my subscription boxes!  I always look forward to my FabFitFun box because it is usually chock full of goodies.  The Spring Edition 2015 surely was too.

FabFitFun Spring Edition 2015 Contents

The first thing I saw when I opened the box was this beautiful Jules Smith Scarf in Watercolor.  It is so super soft and lightweight – perfect for my upcoming trip.  It adds a pop of color to my usual t-shirt and jeans. Retail: $42

Someone must have heard me complaining about the need to work out more because inside this box was the Merrithew 3 DVD set “Intense Body Blast” and a $25 gift card!  I have to make sure this will be ok for my stupid lower back, but am so excited to give it a try! Retail: $61

When I read the name of this nail polish I was a bit confused. Orly Nail BB Creme. I thought BB Creme was for your face.  Orly professes that if you like the face version then you are going to like this one for your nails.  It is a topical cosmetic treatment that helps to smooth, moisturize and brighten nails.  I am going to try this tonight and I’ll keep you posted. Retail: $15

I loved this color in the bottle – Orly’s Cake Pop.  I tried it this morning and although it is a great color, it was really thick and bubbled.  I am in no way a self-professed manicurist but I had to take it off…it really bothered me.  When I have more time I’ll dilute it a smidge with nail polish remover and try it again. Retail: $8.50

I am not one for fake tattoos, especially the metallic variety, but I know my niece will love the Yasi Metallic Flash Tattoos.  Retail: $36

These coasters by Rifle Paper Co. (a fave of mine) are so stinkin’ cute.  I am so not actually using them for their intended purpose.  They are too cute. Even the box they came in is so cute! Retail: $16

I really need to learn how to apply eyeshadow properly now that I have these two OFRA Cosmetics Eyeshadow Brushes (#11 and #20).  Retail: $45.90

I laughed when I saw the Miracle Grow Gro-able Seed Pod.  Why, you ask?  I have the biggest black thumb there is to have.  BUT, I will think positively and try this cutie basil seed pod.  Wish me luck.  What’s also cool is that it came with a free download card for the Sprout It app, which touts that it will help me not kill my plants with reminders and tips.  The bet is on!

I had never heard of this before but am willing to give it a whirl!  Palmetto Derma’s Collagen Booster and Restoration is a lightweight serum that helps to keep your skin safe from the daily elements and also boost collagen, slow down the aging process and minimize wrinkles.  Sold! Retail: $48

I also received a gift card for $40 off my first week of HelloFresh – maybe I’ll try it this time around!

So what do you think of my bounty?! The grand total of $273.89 and the fact that I do like what I received and will use it all, makes the measly $40 charge not hurt a bit!  I love finding new brands and products.  If you are like me, sign up for one of the #FabFitFun boxes by clicking HERE.

I was never really in to jewelry until I became a stylist for Stella & Dot.  I seriously had a great time at the myriad of trunk shows I scheduled throughout the year.  I learned to love costume jewelry as I was previously used to wearing simple pieces here and there and met some wonderful women in the process.  I also have a boatload of jewelry…anyone want some (just kidding…)?

I still like accessorizing with jewelry but now I am into more delicate pieces.  I also don’t want to spend an arm and a leg as I know trends (and my taste change) frequently.

March Rocksbox Review


What’s nice about my Rocksbox subscription is that I can choose the style I like best…I pick my favorites and then their stylist sends me items based on that.  I just go on their site and update my favorites and also check out their Instagram pics and comment with “wish list” on the pieces that catch my eye.

This month I received three great pieces!

April Rocksbox

First up are the Gorjana Taner Bar Mini Swing Earrings.  These earrings fit my style to a T!  They are delicate and simple, but different.  I am leaning towards gold jewelry lately and think this pair will go with just about everything.

Next out of the box came this awesome chain wrap bracelet by Nakamol.  This is the first I am hearing of this brand and am looking forward to checking out some other pieces in the collection.  I love navy and I love the casualness of this lightweight wrap!  The leather is really nice too!

Last but DEFINITELY not least is this super fabulous necklace by House of Harlow 1960.  I am a big fan of House of Harlow and loved that I got a piece in my box!!  This necklace is sooooo cool…it’s delicate (my style) but different (yet again my style).  It is adjustable, so you can wear it short or longer and layered with other delicate pieces.  Love it!!

The sun is out!  The weather is (in some places – slowly) getting warmer and it’s time to think about the essentials when it comes to beauty products.  Here are some of my favorite summer beauty essentials.  Click on the images to learn more about each product.   I’d love to hear what you like to use as well!

Top 5 Summer Beauty Essentials

SUNSCREEN: Now, this is important year round, not just when the sun is most visible.  Here are two favorites for the body:

Now, for my face I use a totally different lotion because I have sensitive skin and I don’t want to clog my pores. Here is my fave:

I put this on over my facial moisturizer.  It is super light and it protects my face, so I am happy!

For the boys I’ll use either the Supergoop or Blue Lizard.  My pediatrician recommended this sunscreen when the boys were little and we’ve used it ever since.

We use this stick for their face and also pack it with their towel and bathing suit for pool days at camp.

A COOL HAT: There are so many different styles of hats to choose from, but my favorites are the panama and floppy hats.  Here are 5 of my favorites:

Facial Spray: Perfect for those super hot days, Evian or Avene facial spray is heaven sent!


LIP BALM: I use lip balm year round and I am super picky when it comes to this too. It has to be moisturizing…like really moisturizing.  SPF is a huge plus too.  My top three faves are:

NAIL POLISH: If you plan on going out in flip flops or sandals, here are some summery colors to brighten up your toes!
