Skin Care Products I Currently Love

I go through skin care products so fast and furious, rarely finding anything I truly love for my dry skin.  I got some E3 Live skin care product samples a few weeks ago and I am hooked!  Their Light Creme and Earth Essential Cream make my skin tighter and super moisturized (and that is no easy feat because it is borderline Sahara.)

Love, love, love them!  Now I just need to find the perfect face wash, toner and eye cream and I will be good to go!

Holiday Season!

Hi dolls!  

It's the first Monday of the holiday season!  I am gearing up to head to Target for a few things, but the idea of going on any shopping venture at this point in the season is slightly daunting (big car, small parking spaces, grumpy toddler, people everywhere.)  Thank goodness for online shopping!  

I dress to prepare for shopping (with no clothes being changed of course!)

Sorry for the blurry pic!  I am wearing my J.Crew pixie pants, Target black boots, Nordstrom turtleneck and a random top from Forever21 that I was about to toss into my giveaway bag because I had never worn it.

I threw on this adorable pink neck wrap from Shorn and my fave sparkly silver Stella and Dot hoops.

I am obsessed with Shorn!  Their cashmere is deliciously soft and snuggly and great prices! Find out more about them and where to buy here!  

Btw... Stella and Dot is having a HUGE one day only sale TODAY!  Go to my site to stock up on all of my fave pieces like my earrings and get a free ring with purchase!

We are really starting to have things come together store wise - you will be shopping with us before you know, so yay for that! (me doing a happy dance)

Happy (belated) Thanksgiving!

I hope everyone had a fabby turkey day!  I cooked up a feast with the family and friends and had a wonderful day!  I love having a reason to use our wedding china!  I made my favorite low fat pumpkin cheesecake and some delicious mashed sweet potatoes courtesy of my Skinny Girl cookbook.  

I have been dying to wear this dress.  It is Collective Concepts that I got at a little boutique in Topanga Canyon 75% off!  I decided to brighten it up with red patent Dior pumps (also got on SUPER sale!)

Who else is excited to get ready for Christmas!?

Deals and steals!

Oh it's the most wonderful time of the year again... shopping season!  This is my time to shine ;)  I will do my best to post any and all shopping discounts I can find!  I am going to try to do as much online shopping as possible this year (I have managed to get in a pretty big dent already) and avoid the sheer craziness of Los Angeles malls (seriously, pay to park!?)

Pop over to the Limited for 40% off everything and free shipping and an additional 20% with code 321

One of my faves, Lulu's is offering 15% off everything with code INTHEIRCLOSET and free shipping on orders over $75

JCrew is offering 25% off orders over $150 with code TURKEY

Happy shopping :)

Random Find

I came across this on multiple web sites today...

All I can say is WHAT?! How does one go about wearing their handbag on their foot?  I'm all for fashion fun and practicality but this is leaving me stumped!

Happy almost Thanksgiving dolls :)

Some of my favorite things...

I have been trying to get as much Christmas shopping done (for others) but between all of my blog reading and online shopping I have managed to put together quite the wish list for myself...

Topshop dress on Emma Roberts!

J.Crew Sparkle Dress

Olivia Palermo in Mango top

Tory Burch from Rue La La

Tory Burch from Rue La La

So many delicious things I am drooling over!

Hi dolls!

We have to give a HUGE thank you to Ashley Brooke Designs for creating our fabby new header!  Check out her site for all of her adorable and fun products!

Please pardon our mess...

Please excuse our mess of a blog today while we get ourselves situated with some changes!

Snoozy Saturday

It was pouring rain and freezing (aka 57 degrees) here in LA today and last night.  I have been dying to break out my new furry vest and this weather gave me the perfect opportunity!  I had a busy day and evening so I needed something that would transition quickly and easily.

With blue kitten heels for day

And my sky high red patent pumps for night

I got this vest at Forever 21 for $22.00 and I adore it! I am also wearing a Tucker for Target top, JCrew Minnie pants and necklace, and Christian Dior shoes.

Friday Fun!

I have been seriously lacking in my outfits this week since I have hardly had time to change out of sweats... let's just say I have been chained to my desk (aka kitchen table) with school work just continuing to pile up and give me anxiety (four more weeks, FOUR MORE LONG WEEKS...)

Here is one of my fave non-sweat outfits from this week on a day when the temps were in the 80's!  Please excuse the fact I am in a bathroom here.  I really need to learn how to upload pictures from my new camera!

Jcrew shorts, French Connection sweaters, Marc by Marc Jacobs bag and sunnies

On a totally separate note, Halle Berry has been a fashion rockstar this week!  Checkout these two looks from events this past week.  Black and white! Girlfriend can do no wrong!

Hope everyone has a fabby weekend!

Pink Ladies!

Dark pink (magenta if you will) has been all the rage on the red carpets this past week!  Both Mandy Moore (at the Tangled premiere) and Natalie Portman (at the Black Swan premiere) were rocking the one shoulder magenta dress look!

You can get something similar at Piperlime here!

Hi lovies!

We have a giveaway winner.... the always fabulous Emily!  You know who are you :)

It has been a super busy week over here and I am itching to share it all with you (once I dig myself out of piles of homework, papers, and built-up work, and government forms, yada, yada...)  so today's post is short.  I found these amazing pink accented rooms over at The Little Green Notebook and they made me happy so I thought I would share!  If you love interior design even the littlest smidge, you must check out her blog!

Royal love is in the air...

I hope you all heard the extremely exciting news this morning - Prince William is engaged to the fabulous Kate Middleton!

I adore her navy dress and black pumps in their official press "coming out."  She has such elegant, understated, classic style.  It is beyond that he gave her his mother, the late Princess Diana's, engagement ring.  Classic and elegant like Kate!  

Kate worked in the British fashion industry before going to work for her family business, hence, her amazing style.

And of course there are her pink moments!

A royal wedding - something so fun to look forward to!

Just another Manic Monday...

I used to dread Mondays, but lately, trying to start my own business, I have begun to look forward to them.  I like to have a fresh start work-wise and Mondays seem to motivate me anymore (yes, I know, you may want to hit me for saying this and I get it!)  We got SO much accomplished in the last few days and cannot wait to share all of our exciting changes and things in store with you all!  

I spotted this picture of Demi Moore and am drooling over her jacket!  I need to find a similar waterfall plaid blazer!

And how adorable does the preggers Samantha Harris look in this Stella and Dot necklace?  Get it 20% off this month with any order of $50 or more at my Stella and Dot site.

Love, love, love!

It's been quite a week!

Hi lovies!

It has been QUITE a week.  Lots and lots going on, work-wise, with school (it's coming out my EARS!), animals, bebe, the usual.  However, we have so much going on store-wise so that is wonderful!  

Did anyone watch the CMA's last night?  Don't lie... I love myself a little country music (Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood are two of my faves) and I have to say both Ms. Underwood and Taylor Swift were some of the best dressed ladies there.  

I doubt either of these ladies can ever have a huge miss.  I love the simplicity of Taylor's red dress and her statement earrings and I adore the fun, artistic vibe of Carrie's, which is contrasted by such a steely hue.  Love, love, love.  

Don't forget... Friends and Family going on at both White House Black Market and Bloomingdales right now!

Lanvin for H&M Must Haves!

You must check out this video from PopSugar!  I cannot wait for this collection to hit stores!

Tuesday Fashions

Hi dolls!  It FINALLY feels like fall here!  We're talking fireplace on at night, heat on in the morning, light jacket temperatures-kind-of-fall!  To top it off Dunkin Donuts Pumpkin Spice coffee was on sale at Target - a sign of happy fall things!  I have one of my in between (as in 80's out when it's November) outfits from this past weekend.

Gap jeggings, DVF top (got on SUPER sale at Neiman Marcus - 80% off!), Lilly Pulitzer sandals, Kendra Ross earrings

I got these Kendra Ross earrings recently from Max and Chloe with a 25% off coupon.  I adore them and think that turquoise is a fabulous accent color with almost any other color.  Bebe is wearing an adorable Little Maven flapper dress and her trusty sparkle shoes in silver.  She inspires me to want to wear sparkle shoes almost daily!

I spotted this picture of Kourtney Kardashian and decided it was a good outfit inspiration.

Simple and classic, even though I can't stand the one Balenciaga bag I own and I doubt it will ever be cold enough for me to wear a pea coat and scarf.  Maybe for an East Coast trip!

Monday Inspiration

I have been itching to snazz up our home with pain and furniture tweaks.... I keep finding inspirational pictures that make me drool, just like Lauren Leonard's fabulous bedroom

I love the wall color and have a few paint swatches picked out to replicate the color.  I also love the dark wood bed contrasting with the white and silver accents throughout the room!  I have sheer white currents currently and a fluffy white bedspread (white puppy included!)  I just need to get my hands on someone to paint (trust me, I have tried painting a room or two and it never ends up well) and a dark wood bed, preferably with a lower headboard.  Any suggestions?

I was also overjoyed to be able to pick this little baby up in my local BevMo!

Skinnygirl happiness!  Speaking of Skinnygirl... we are hosting a giveaway!  We are giving away one copy of The Skinnygirl Dish by Bethenny Frankel.  This is my cooking bible and you will adore!  

You have from now until November 17th to enter.  Here is how to enter (each one counts as an entry)
