Faux Leather Shorts

Peasant Top

Stella & Dot Sahara Necklace

For a hot minute, I thought maybe…just maybe…our weather was going to cool down a bit. I mean, I literally can NOT remember the last time I wore jeans! And I’m so bummed because I’ve got a new pair of grey skinnies and two new pairs of black skinnies that I’ve been dying to wear. So today this outfit is about as fall-ish as I’m going to get for a while because we are expecting another heat wave and Santa Ana winds later this week. It’s kind of hard to get in the PSL (pumpkin spice latte) mood when it’s blazing hot outside. Although I did just take Eep to the pumpkin patch yesterday…

Last week I threw a “girls night in” pamper party and treated my girlfriends to Sally Hansen’s new “no-light” Sally Hansen® Miracle Gel™ manicures! It had been a really long time since the four of us had gotten together so what better way to treat ourselves than with wine, girl talk and manicures?!?! BTW, I don’t know if you’ve tried Cupcake Vineyards wine before but I picked a bottle up on a whim several months ago without realizing it was a screw-top bottle of wine…just because I thought the name was cute. And all of my girlfriends ended up loving it! Plus you have to have cupcake wine with mini cupcakes!

After we chatted over a glass of wine, we were ready to get our mani party going! We each picked our favorite color and had a good laugh over the fact that one of my friends always wanted to be a hand model. SO congrats Samantha…here is your big hand modeling debut! =) We are wearing (starting w/ top left and going clockwise) “Pink Cadillaquer” (shade 170), “Too Haute” (shade 520), “Redgy” (shade 330) and “Get Mod” (shade 450).

I don’t get to paint my nails nearly as much as I used to, so being able to do a long-lasting at-home gel mani has been fabulous. And I’m happy to report that each one of my friends text me to let me know how impressed they were with Sally Hansen® Miracle Gel™ nail polish. Longer lasting mani’s with no chipping for days longer than their usual polish PLUS a super shiny top coat!

DIY Mani Tip: Try to avoid painting your cuticle for a more professional looking manicure.

It has been a whirlwind of a week over here. I had some of my girlfriends over for a “girls night in” party, my hubby is having a poker party tonight and we’ve got two birthdays this weekend! One of them being Eep’s 4th birthday! So I’ve sort of been running around like a chicken with my head cut-off (gah…what a horrible saying!) all week trying to plan & prepare for each of them. Our social calendar is not usually this busy so I am feeling a bit scatterbrained so I hope this post is making sense. Hope you all have a great weekend! xo

For anyone who was wondering after Monday’s post…I’m happy to report that I LOVED zumba! All that anxiety for nothing! I had so much fun that I actually can’t wait until next week to go again! But can we talk about this romper for a minute? It was only $33!!! Is that a great deal or what? I fell in love with the colors and when I saw the price tag, I HAD to have it!

The Harper’s BAZAAR beauty team curated our September GLOSSYBOX to give subscribers everything they need for a minimalistic, chic fall look. The box features lash-lengthening Benefit They’re Real!

Harper's Bazaar Glossybox

I always get excited for collaboration boxes and the Harper’s Bazaar for Glossybox did not disappoint. I was first introduced to Vichy products years ago in one of my very first Glossybox’s and I’ve been a fan ever since. The older I get, the more moisturizer I need so the night cream is probably my favorite item in the box. The Essie nail polish (in Ave-Hue) and Benefit Cosmetics mascara take second place. Benefit Cosmetics has a real cult following and for good reason. I use several of their products in my daily makeup routine. As for the Lip Tar…the consistency and high pigmentation are amazing. Unfortunately the metallic color did nothing for my skin tone. And lastly…the Bvlgari scented conditioner. Great concept…who doesn’t want great smelling hair? Only problem is that I am not a huge fan of Bvlgari perfume. I hate to leave on a less than stellar note…but perfume is such a personal preference! All in all…this was a great box. And with a $60 value…the $21 price tag is worth it in my book!
