Unique LA

Back in May I won tickets to a really amazing event called Unique LA and had the best time ever! I highly HIGHLY recommend checking this out and definitely bring your wallet because you are going to want to buy ALL THE THINGS! Like I was shook at how much amazing local stuff there was. I also went by myself and stayed all day and had an absolute blast!

“Your dollars make a direct impact in your neighborhood! The entrepreneurs you shop from at Unique LA are registered business owners in their cities, and therefore local taxpayers, so buying from them directly helps your neighborhood public schools, libraries, fire departments, parks, and more. How great is that?!”

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 Recommendations and Wish List

I’ve already dropped about $300 at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, but that doesn’t necessarily mean I’m done shopping… There’s been years where I’ve put off purchases thinking “oh they’ll be back on sale before I know it” but let me tell you it will take FOR-EV-ER for these pieces to be on sale again and even if they do they won’t be your size or the color you want so if you see something I say take the plunge and buy now! Here’s what I’m still contemplating:

Shoes

There’s just something about that gold TB logo though, right!? Continue reading Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 Recommendations and Wish List

Cameran Eubanks from Southern Charm’s Beauty Secrets

I’ve been a huge fan of Southern Charm since the very first season and Cameran consistently has absolutely amazing hair and makeup that are natural and effortless, yet incredible all at the same time. Since a lot of people have questions about her age- Cameran Eubanks aka Cameran Wimberly’s birthday is 11/21/83 making her currently 33 years old. One of Cameran’s biggest beauty secrets and the reason why she always looks so flawless- she used to be a makeup artist! (Source)

Amazon’s Echo Look is about to Take OOTDs to the Next Level

Amazon’s latest product is the Echo Look which has all of the voice activated features of the Amazon Echo, but now is equipped with a special camera to capture outfits. The camera is hands-free, has built-in LED lighting, has a depth-sensing capabilities, and is able to blur the background automatically. It can also take videos and it looks like it makes little Boomerang videos as well. Now you can ask Alexa what the weather will be and then have her take a selfie in whichever outfit she has decided looks best on you.

Lilly Pulitzer Dress for a Tropical Bridal Shower

Hi everyone! I spent the entire last month planning, shopping, plotting, hunting, cooking, and rearranging to prepare for my sister Hannah’s bridal shower because I wanted it to be perfect! She wanted to do it in our home town of Jupiter, FL (in the Palm Beach area) while we were at our parent’s house for the holidays. The theme she choose was tropical which can work literally any day of the year in south Florida because it’s so warm and sunny. I found her the dress she wore for the shower at Crossroads (consignment store) on Melrose Ave. in LA before we even knew she was going to have one and she got an awesome deal on it. It’s the Amanda Uprichard Cubano Jacquard Sheath dress. I left shopping for my dress till the last minute, but luckily good ol’ Palm Beach staple Lilly Pulitzer came through!

I wore it with my Jack Rogers Whipstitched Flip Flops in Gold. I definitely recommend going 1/2 a size up because they’re narrow.

Vegas Bachelorette Party

I recently went to Vegas for my friend Courtney’s bachelorette party and had an absolute blast! Here’s some info that might help you with your next bachelorette bash or your next trip to Vegas!

Prepping for the Trip

One month before: Go online and order all the most ridiculous bachelorette games and decorations you can find. Get your wardrobe together.

A few days before: if you’re road tripping it be sure to stock up on rosé/champagne, snacks, and bring an entire case of water. Also consider a case of Red Bull. A wine key/bottle opener is very important as well. Get a manicure/pedicure/brows threaded. Get some cash out.

The night before you go to Vegas: If you are a pale person like myself, you’re going to want to get a spray tan. In the evening take a shower, exfoliate your entire body using exfoliating gloves and a body scrub, then shave wherever you like to shave. When you get out of the shower don’t put on any lotion or deodorant. Wear loose fitting clothes that you don’t mind getting spray tan on and either wear a bikini/bathing suit or nothing at all underneath. Pull your hair up in a bun. I tried Organic Shimmer on Melrose and loved their $19 for first time customers deal. The girl that did my tan was super sweet and told me a funny story about her first bachelorette party. Afterwords be very careful when you are around any water. Wash your hands sparingly. Don’t let water drip down your arms when you brush your teeth. Don’t take a shower or wash off the tan even if you look like a bodybuilder. Make sure you’re ok with all of your bedding getting self-tanner on it, because it will happen. Sleep in loose long sleeves and pants to contain most of the spray tan.

The day you leave: In the morning take a shower and rinse off the outer layer of spray tan. Don’t scrub and don’t use too much soap. Make sure you pack your darkest foundation and lots of bronzer so your face will match your body. Make sure your snacks game is tight. Bring your ID. Pack a lot of aspirin and water.

Where to Stay
