All In The Details

I keep saying “I am done shopping for Aruba”, but then I saw this pom-pom cover up and beaded sandals on sale and I knew I wasn’t done just yet!

I totally love the pom-pom trend, but most of the pieces I’ve seen are super expensive. When i saw this Anmol Crotchet Kimono with Multi Colored Pom Pom Trim on ASOS – I figured it was a couple hundred dollars, but to my surprise it was on sale for $46!

Since the pom-pom details are “on trend” right now I don’t want to invest much money into different pieces because I probably won’t wear it next summer, so $46 and I was sold! I would definitely scoop it up before it sells out and summer ends!

These Steve Madden Jewells Beaded Suede Sandals are very comfortable and perfect for vacation! Another great sale item i found at Lord & Taylor! Guess how much…

$27.60! And they still have a bunch of sizes left. Go get them before they are gone!

Estēe Lauder

There are a few key products by Estēe Lauder that I always use and wanted to share with you!

Softening Lotion – I use it after I wash my face and it leaves my skin feeling smooth and refreshed!

Perfectly Clean Foam Cleanser – I leave it on for 3 minutes while I shower and helps to keep my skin clear.

Double Wear Light Foundation – I love this foundation because it’s lightweight, always looks natural and stays on all day! (I use Intensity 4.0)

Brush-On Glow Highlighter – To hide dark circles and brighten up your eyes! (I use 5/6 N Deep Neutral)

Automatic Brow Pencil Duo – This eyebrow filler allows you to easily trace your brow and fill it in. (I use 07-soft blonde)

These Estēe Lauder products are just a few of my favorites. My skin is normally very dry, so beauty products that hydrate my skin, but don’t leave it looking cake-y is very important to me. Luckily, the products above do just that.

We all know one-piece swimsuits are on trend right now and I’ve been searching for the perfect one. After trying on all different styles from ASOS, Nordstrom, Nasty Gal, Lord & Taylor & Bloomingdales.. I finally found it!!! This ASOS T-Back High Leg Plunge Swimsuit  is SO flattering. Not to mention it’s sexy af (ha!) and super comfortable.

If I like something, like really like something, I tend to purchase it in every color available. And that’s exactly what happened here. I initially purchased the black one (which is my favorite out of all 4) and then ordered the nude, white and red.

The best part about this swimsuit is that is ONLY costs $26. It’s a total steal.

I am excited to wear it in Aruba and I will definitely post pictures after the trip! Stay tuned! Happy shopping and enjoy your Saturday!

Travel Must-Haves

Just two short weeks stand between me and paradise! I’m sure you can guess where Chris and I are going…Aruba!! We normally go for 8 days, 7 nights, but we both always feel like 8 days is not enough, so we decided to stay for 10 days this trip. I’m sure I’ll be eager to get home to my pups after 10 days. We are also going for longer this time because we are booking our wedding! Yes, destination wedding in Aruba! It’s our favorite place on earth. How could we not get married there? I promise, I will post all the details!

If you are traveling to a warm, sunny destination for vacation there are 4 products you must not go without. These are essential!

1. Bain De Soleil – The BEST tanning lotion on the market if you are looking to achieve a bronze tan during your vacation. It’s more of a gelée than it is a lotion. It works without fail every time. You can get 2 bottles on amazon prime for $22.37!

2. It’s A 10 – My favorite leave-in conditioner. A friend told me about this product years ago and I have used it ever since. I naturally have super knotty hair and this conditioner is my savior. I use it right after I shower and every time I get out of the water on vacation. You can purchase the 10oz bottle on amazon prime for $24.46. It is normally $34 at Target.

3. Baby Lips Lip Balm (Color: Cherry ME) – I love Baby Lips because it’s easy to apply and it gives your lips the perfect hint of color (especially when you are tan). Available in a 4 pack on amazon prime for $9.99!

4. Intuition Razor Refills – The only razor I use is the intuition because it allows you to lather and moisturize all while shaving your legs in one easy step. No need for shaving cream. When you’re packing for vacation, it’s so much easier to pack your razor and one small refill rather than your razor, another blade and shaving cream. You need to conserve the weight of your luggage for your shoes! I usually purchase my refills at Target!

These are 4 products that I always travel with! I definitely recommend you try them 🙂

Stay tuned for some vacation inspired outfits and cool new swimsuits that I am obsessed with!
