Favorites and OOTD's

I have't done a favorites post in a while so I have a lot of current favs to share today!

I just read White Girl Problems by Babe Walker, it is SO funny!! It's a quick read, didn't end the way I would have liked, but still very funny. Do you all follow her on twitter? I was late to that one..

If your a working girl like me, you need this wrap. I keep it in my cubbie and it is perfect for the chilly AC or when your skirt is long when you stand, but not when you sit... its amazing!

This chapstick/lipgloss (or whatever it is..) is amazing! It's super moisturizing and is the perfect bit of color for winter/ early spring.

Ok, we all know I have a large collection of TB revas, but the Carolines are my new favorite! IMO much more comfy than the revas, and they go with everything! (as you will soon see..)

I went to j.crew to try on some of their new stuff, left empty handed because nothing really spoke to me.. but after looking at these pictures, I think I need to reconsider both the skirt and jacket! new favs?

My favorite type of  hour... Rombauer Hour! Def my favorite wine! 
If your in the bay, check it out @ that bar in danville

Since tomorrow I will be en route to orange county for a bridal shower, I thought I would give you my outfits for this week:



Thursday (today)
This belt from target is amazing! Calf hair leopard j.crew look-alike for $16?! Yes please!

Have a fab Thursday and rest of the week!! XO

A Healthy Glow

I'm a big believer in having a healthy glow year round. Maybe it's all the years in sorority but I can't stand to be pasty white. Since I limit my sun exposure (and because it's still February) I've been using some sunless tanning staples. I've tried sooo many over the years that I'll give you the DL on a few of my favs:

I use this when I need color ASAP. You see the results right away making it easier to apply then others, and I haven't had too many streak issues. It has a bit of shimmer, so if you apply too much at once you'll be looking like Edward (besides the tan part).

L'Oreal Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Lotion 5 fl oz (150 ml)

If you can find this one, it's great! The smell is very good and it looks very natural. It's best if you use this one a few days before and up until the event as its not as much color as the one above. 
Neutrogena Sun Fresh Lotion Medium/Deep 4 fl oz (118 ml)

This is a gradual tan lotion that works pretty well and doesn't turn you orange. I don't think it actually works as a shave minimizer. But if your into putting lotion on everyday after your shower then this would prob work well for you. 

Nivea Sun-Kissed Beautiful Legs Gradual Tan Moisturizer 6.7 fl oz (200 ml)

Do you use sunless tanner? What are your faves? 

Please dish, I'm always looking for something new and better!

Busy Bee

I've been super busy lately.. buying a house is a lot of work! 

This is what my extra long weekend looked like:

Having some fun with mr. kitty, played a round of golf, bought a new slakin & co. candle, and of course our sale pending sign!

Don't worry, even though I've been a busy bee, I still have plenty of time for happy hour and drinks with friends..

Shamrock shake at McD's.. yumm! Chocolate martini, wine at happy hour, and a pretty mocha while catching up with my bestie..

Well I hope you all have a fab short week!! XO

Be Mine.

Happy Valentine's Day to all my dear readers! Hope your day is full of love!!

Here's what I've been up to so far:

Minted cards I gave to co-workers. 'True Love' pennant banner in the shape of conversational hearts over our fireplace. Keeping it classy by wearing the pearls CWF got me as a gift. And my fav Kate Spade red shoes (similar). 

Much love to you all! XO

Red & Pink and a Bunch of OOTD's

Happy Friday Ladies!

In honor of our upcoming anniversary (on Valentine's Day) I thought I would coordinate w/ this week's Friday's Fancies theme: red & pink. 

I always try to wear as much of the things that CWF has gifted to me over the years on our special day! Do you do that?

Look for Less: It Bag

Happy Tuesday! It's finally raining here and I love a good rainy day especially when the forecast for the rest of the week is sunny!

Well I don't know about you but I've been loving the Celine bag I've seen everywhere lately. Of course it's way too pricey for me at $2000 +. But luckily J.Crew comes through and does something similar and a little more friendly on the wallet!

I saw it in the store over the weekend- and it was LOVE! Seriously I think its my fav j.crew bag in a long time. The craftsmanship seems excellent! Which color would you choose? I'm thinking the blue..

Can someone please buy it for me?!  hint hint CWF, our anniversary IS coming up!

Happy Friday ladies!

It's been a super busy and stressful week around here, so I'm especially excited about this weekend! JL Crab Feed and brunch w/ the girls and the Superbowl! can't.hardly.wait!

Anyway, since we never really had a winter I've got Spring Fever Hardcore. Linking up for Friday's Fancies of course.. I can't to wear all my Lilly dresses and wedges again!
