it’s march

It’s MARCH! 4 months to go, Spring is on its way and the time change is only a week away. So many great things to look forward to. I love downloading the desktop calendar from Sugar Paper each month. It is such a clean, classic look and I love the calligraphy. If you sign up on Sugar Paper for their emails you will get a chance to download the calendar each month too. 03-March-2015-logo-K

Right now, Sugar paper has their desk calendars 50% off with the code: YAY50

This is a great opportunity to get a calendar that will not only be functional for the rest of 2015, but it will be a beautiful addition to any desk or workspace. I can’t wait to get this pink and gold one.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend! -Brittany

benefit roller lash mascara

benefit roller lash

Tomorrow, February 27th, is the much anticipated date for the release of Benefit’s Roller Lash mascara. I am a huge fan of all of their makeup products especially both of their other mascara’s: They’re Real and BADgal Lash Mascara. I can not wait for Friday to get here so I can get my hands on this new one and see how it compares to their others. Roller lash is advertised as having “super -curling effects.” Who doesn’t want their lashes to be super curled?! Hopefully, this will cut out the need for an eyelash curler as well (wouldn’t that be great). Below I thought I would also share with you some of my other favorites from Benefit. I am consistently drawn to this brand for their quality products but also for the fun names and unexpected packaging. I will be sure to check back and let you know what I think after I have a chance to try this mascara out.

j crew flats

677294b4654bc8e6bc203bb7df3d0972These J Crew cap toe flats are perfection! Friends, I am excited (and embarrassed slightly) to share with you my latest purchase… It was not a simple purchase but a mini adventure as I will explain. I first laid eyes on these fabulous flats earlier this year at work. As I passed by another doctor I couldn’t help but spot the hot pink accents on her shoes. So, I decided I would turn to the internet to search for them. After searching “ballet flats with hot pink accent” and “ballet flats with hot pink cap toe” I finally stumbled upon the pair that I had spotted and discovered that they were made by J Crew and they were from last season, therefore, officially unavailable. I didn’t think about them again til I saw this post on instagram last week by one of my favorites (Monika Hibbs) and I was reminded of these fun shoes and knew I had to have them.

So, I turned to eBay, in hopes to magically find a pair in my size. Long story short… eBay did not fail me. If you are on a hunt for the same shoes they are the J Crew Mila cap toe leather ballet flats in vintage blush. My advise to you is not to be discouraged if an item you absolutely love is sold out or from last season or even last year. Ebay is a great resource! A little persistence and a lot of luck you are all it takes. Here I have them styled for a day at the hospital.

Happy Shopping! XOXO -Brittany

On a side note, these are the first pair of shoes I have purchased from J Crew so if you would be interested in a review on their fit, sizing, comfort etc. let me know.

frothy coffee

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a great weekend!  I am just unpacking and unwinding from my week stay in FLL last week!  We had a great trip and enjoyed being further South (this winter weather is really coming on strong this month!)!  I have been drained from all my time spent traveling home yesterday so I have been brewing up pot after pot of coffee today!  I thought I would share with you one of my favorites for making my coffee so much tastier (and fancier!)!  It’s my electric coffee frother!

All you have to do is add milk or cream to the electric frother and it does the rest!

The frother is essentially a stainless steel pitcher with a heating apparatus that lines the interior of it.  It has a spinning piece on the inside of it that whips the milk while the pitcher simultaneously warms it.  It makes the most delicious froth!  What is cool about this frother is that you can add milk, cream, almond milk, or even Coffee Mate creamers to it!  It is not dishwasher safe so you have to hand wash it right after use or else it builds up a small residue on it.

I am loving my morning (and afternoon) coffee with its special touch of froth!

–Check out that frothy coffee!–

Unfortunately, my exact coffee frother is no longer available!  I have also used the Starbucks electric milk frother (that I actually like better than mine!) and it is still available!  This is such an easy way to add a little extra touch to your coffee at home without investing in an expensive espresso machine and having a huge hassle of preparing professional froth.  If you like froth or milk in your coffee, you definitely need to give this a try!

I hope you guys have a great day!
