swim faves

I know swim shopping is a favorite activity of everyone, right??  I absolutely hate trying on any swimwear under the fluorescent lights of a retail store so I actually complete all my swim shopping via the internet.

Some of my favorite go-to stores are JCrew, JCrew Factory, Vineyard Vines, and Victoria’s Secret.

I thought I would share with you all a few of my recent purchases as well as a few that have crept up onto my wish list.

Also no swim look is complete without a cover-up.  I love being able to wear something to and from the pool that is a bit more flattering than just romping around in a bikini.  Here are a couple of my favorites.

I know you are all dying to see some of these IRL so here you go!

The pic on the left is from a few years ago and this JC Shirt dress is still my go-to–ie invest your money on a good piece that is well-made and it will last you for years–going on 4 for my purchase!  The pic on the right is from our amazing room in Turks and Caicos!  This Vineyard Vines suit got a lot of wear during our vacay!

I hope you all are having a great day!  I have been so preoccupied with work, house stuff (more on this front later), and life in general that I have been off the grid recently.  I promise to post more and to not fall off the radar again!  Have a great Monday!



benefit cheekathon palette

Benefit has been one of my absolute favorite cosmetic brands for several years now. Part of what I love about them is the fact that they are still coming out with great new products. Their packaging is over the top cute and I can’t help it but that kind of thing definitely influences my purchases.

products: roller lash // lip gloss // blush // cream eye shadow // brow gel // bad gal lash

They recently released the limited edition cheekathon palette which I had to buy the minute I saw it. This palette includes 5 FULL sized blushes & bronzers as well as a brush! It is a steal at only $58.00 for 5 full sized products. If you were to purchase all 5 of these individually it would be over $150.00. This is perfect for traveling too!!

Here are the 5 blushes and bronzers that are included:

Dallas blush in Dusty Rose (full size)
Dandelion blush in Baby Pink (full size)
CORALista blush in Coal Pink (full size)
Rockateur blush in Rose Gold (full size)
Hoola matte bronzer (full size)

Since this palette is limited edition I am not sure how long it will be available, so you might want to get your hands on this great deal while you still can.

Happy Shopping!

rosé all day

Now that it is getting warmer outside I am much less inclined to order my usual glass of red wine and I lean toward prosecco, champagne and of course rosé (all day). I thought I would share with y’all my favorite affordable sparkling pink champagne’s. They are all reasonably priced, easy to find and taste great.

Also, as far a prosecco goes, my favorite is always LaMarca. It is very reasonably priced and you can usually find it at most restaurants, bars and any liquor store. The bottle is the prettiest too so it also looks great sitting on your bar or bar cart.


Please share if you have any sparkling favorites that I need to try.
