It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with Nordstrom. In fact, I’ve already made a Black Friday purchase from there and it’s only Thursday… Be sure to check out my Black Friday 2017 post to see ALL the deals for ALL stores!!
A few weekends ago I traveled to Chicago with my friends Annebelle and Meagan for the live show of their podcast Adderall & Compliments. I have been helping the girls in any way I can for the past few months after I saw what an incredible impact they have had on their community of listeners (referred to as “kittens”) all over the world. Annabelle and Meagan have shared on the podcast about their mental health ups and downs and the response has been incredible. Kittens at every show come up to the girls with tears in their eyes saying they have changed their lives and they are forever grateful. They feel so much less alone and like someone finally understands them and what they’re going through and that is just priceless. People have said they were contemplating suicide and the podcast got them through their low point and now they have finally reached out and gotten help- it’s amazing. I think the work they are doing is SO important so I am doing whatever I can to support them in their mission- hence why I have been traveling with them for their live shows!
I just had one of the best trips of my entire life to a place you may have never heard about- San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua. My sister and her husband are avid surfers and knew they wanted a destination wedding. When a friend suggested the small surf town on the west coast of this stunning Central American developing country they agreed that it was just what they were looking for. They ended up getting nearly 60 friends and family members to come out and celebrate with them! I stayed for about a week and I want to break this up into a few posts starting with this one with tips and tricks. Here’s a photo of the dreamy couple:
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?!”
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:
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access is Thursday July 13, 2017 through Thursday July 20, 2017 and then the sale becomes open to the public on Friday July 21, 2017 until August 6, 2017. On August 7, 2017 prices actually go UP because the sale is on items for next season. Also be sure to check out my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 Recommendations and Wish List too!
I’ve been a huge fan of Southern Charm since the very first season and Cameran Eubanks consistently has absolutely amazing hair and makeup that look natural and effortless.
Since a lot of people have questions about her age- Cameran Eubanks aka Cameran Wimberly’s birthday is 11/21/83 making her currently 34 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)
Cameran Eubanks Skin Care
Cameran usesOLE HENRIKSEN Truth Serum ($48). This is a collagen boosting serum with vitamin C for brightening and all-day hydration. As we age we lose collagen so it helps keep things right and tight. It’s like a multi-vitamin for the skin and is oil-free. (Source)
At night Cameran uses the Caudalie Vine[Activ] Overnight Detox Night Oil ($50). She says it wakes you up a new person. Umm that sounds amazing and I need to try this immediately. This oil helps to address skin damage caused by daytime external aggressors. Sonia Morgan is also a big fan of Caudalie skin care.
Cameran also loves the SkinCeuticals C + AHA Exfoliating Antioxidant Treatment ($135) which she said helped fade dark spots on her face after only 3 weeks! Impressive! This potent formula protects against damaging UVA/UVB rays, prevents premature signs of aging, and stimulates collagen production. The hydroxy acids exfoliate to smooth the skin and create a more youthful appearance. C+AHA uses both glycolic acid and lactic acid to slough off the rough outer layer of the skin revealing newer, youthful skin under the surface. Sonja Morgan also uses the C E + Feurulic from SkinCeuticals.

Cameran’s most recent beauty-related post on Instagram showed she’s loving It Cosmetics CC (Color Correcting) Cream ($38).This CC Cream has amazing coverage, feels lightweight, covers up dark sports, and has SPF 50! I love it!! It’s my go to for day and night!
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.
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!
