Fab Fit Fun Spring Box

Besides all the other wonderful things hubs did and planned for my birthday, he also got me another Fab Fit Fun box.

20190310_163608

He did some add ons this time around which were a fun little surprise! I thought it would be fun to share the unboxing and show you guys the add ons πŸ™‚

Add on numero uno was this necklace which came the day before the box arrived. It’s the Pisces symbol. I’m definitely a dainty necklace/jewelry gal and although this Pisces symbol is bold I loved the delicate chain and the beautiful gold details.

The second one arrived in the box and were the deluxe Murad samples. He knows how much I love skin care and trying new things and added this!

20190310_164853

Now for the actual box!

This season’s box had this gorgeous short sleeved floral robe! It will definitely be perfect for the warmer months and I am so looking forward to wearing it! It feels light and soft and I love the pattern.

This champagne body scrub is something I am excited to use and see how much I like it. I love the packaging on it too-so pretty!

20190310_164316

I don’t use a lot (or any) product in my hair other than my regular shampoo and conditioner. I do put coconut oil in my hair once a week as a deep conditioner and wash it off, but I am a little intrigued and scared of this Ouai leave in conditioner. The smell is nice, fresh and clean. I’ve currently pawned it off on my husband, but I may have to try it out!

20190310_163451

Tula isn’t a skin care line I’ve heard a lot about, but this probiotic wash intrigues me. I’m interested in looking into it before using it, but it’s always nice to have a back up of face wash!

20190310_164506

The box came with this beautiful necklace as well. It’s a lovely light chain and I love the bar with the white stone in it. So pretty!

20190310_164428

I have yet to use or find an eye cream, ointment, anything really. This box included a Dr. Brandt eye de-puffing gel and I am curious to see how it works and what it will do.

20190310_164543

I broke a favorite pair of my sunglasses a while ago and I’ve been on the hunt for something similar. Even though this is a little different I am so excited about these Quay sunglasses. I’ve heard great things about them and they look so fun on!

20190310_164012

This last product is definitely one of my favorite things in the box. The Lavido lotion with mandarin, orange, and bergamot smells so delicious, fresh, and clean I just can’t get enough!

20190310_164700

That was the Fab Fit Fun spring box! Let me know if you get Fab Fit Fun and what you got and if you did any add ons!

 

Loving

Hello, hello! I thought it would be fun to share some of the things I’ve been currently into…I want to keep this post short and sweet so let’s jump in πŸ™‚

My Sedu straightener finally gave up and gave out. It was a good long 10 year run and it did a great job of straightening my hair without damaging it, but I was ready to try another brand. I took a leap and got this Kristin Ess 3 in 1 straightener and so far I have been loving it! It does a really great job and it’s so beautiful! White and gold? My heart!

20190122_075638

I’ve been wanting this book since the moment it came out, but for whatever reason waited to buy it. I love books by strong women-it’s so inspiring and I just feel so motivated after. If you haven’t read it yet I would definitely recommend!

20190122_130555

I’ve been looking for a dress for an occasion that is months and months away. It will actually be during the summer so I wanted something summery, light, and classy? Does that make sense? Anywho, I found this dress at Aritzia and snagged it up! It’s my first Aritzia purchase and I just keep trying it on and going head over heels…

That is all I got for now! Have you guys read anything you couldn’t put down? Let me know in the comments below πŸ™‚

Loving

I love doing these posts and reading posts like this from other people! I think it’s so interesting to see new finds and sometimes I find something super useful in those posts.

I’m constantly loving all the things, but here are a few that keep coming up over and over…

Quick meals-I don’t know if I’m just more hungry then usual or I’m waiting too long to start making my meals, but fast meals to get food from my fridge to my tummy have been a major go to.

I know summer is gone, but I cannot get enough of these grape/cherry tomatoes. They are so delicious! Side note: also can’t get enough grapes…

20181115_131328

This dress I found at H&M…not my usual style, but I thought it was super cute and it was under $10! Whaaaaat??

20181123_161309

I love a good rose scent, but this vanilla and rose lotion from Bath and Body takes it to another level! It’s seriously so lovely!

20181115_104901

Dinner with friends is always a favorite, but I think it means a lot more now knowing that we are all going different ways come later next year 😞

20181202_123525

I’ve been wanting some heart earrings and these gold plated ones were too cute to resist. I actually mix them up when I wear them instead of pairing them with their twin!

20181125_140255

I think that wraps up my favorites! Talk to me in the comments and let me know what you’ve been loving recently! Till next time πŸ™‚

Some fall favorites

I have not been hating this fall thing that’s happening. It still gets nice and warm during the afternoon in LA, but mornings and evenings have been a bit chilly. Because of that I have been feeling all of the fall things!

My first favorite is something I’ve been looking for, for a LONG time. When you’re a shmall framed human it’s hard to find leather/jean jackets that properly fit and won’t break the bank. I finally found this beauty at TJ Maxx. It fits nicely, has pockets on the sides for your hands, and was $20!

20181009_115553

During the same shopping trip I found this reddish brownish burnt orangey polish from OPI. I probably don’t need another polish, but I honestly don’t have a shade like this and it seemed like it was meant to be πŸ˜€

20181009_125643

Brunch with bae has always been and will always be a fave..honestly any meal with him will be a fave. This particular meal was from Leo & Lily’s. It was their turkey club and their crunchy french toast.

I have been kinda loving and living in jumpsuits as of late. They are so comfy and you can pull one on and look put together as long as the fit is right. This was another TJ Maxx find. Maybe I should have named this a TJ Maxx haul πŸ€”

20181012_120352

Breakfast burritos are perfect for fall! When it’s chilly outside I have a hard time eating raw veggies. So if I can sautΓ© them up and wrap it up in a tortilla with some scrambled eggs, cheese, and hash browns…why not?! Also it’s super delicious and filling!

20181012_093835

Obsessing specifically over Fage’s 2% Greek yogurt. I normally use the 0% Greek yogurt, but the hubby had been mixing the two. He had some 2% leftover recently and I was trying to use it up and fell in love. It’s super creamy and it’s not as tart as the 0%. Super impressed! Will be sticking with the 2%!

20181011_082532

These sunnies were a find at Francesca’s. My favorite pair of sunnies recently broke and I’ve been on the hunt for a pair. Just like finding jean jackets are hard for me, finding sunnies that fit my face are difficult…maybe I’m just picky! Who knows? I saw these, tried them on and loved them. They’re so lovely!

20181009_164119

Those are all my current favorites! Tell me what you’ve been loving this fall in the comments below!! Till next time!

Fashion Favorites

I don’t know if it’s getting older or just getting more comfortable in my own skin, but the way I look at clothing has really changed.

I feel like I could never find clothes that fit me properly or anything “in style” did absolutely nothing for my body. If it actually looked good it was uncomfortable, I would wear it once, tug and pull on it all night and never wear it again.

Recently, I have been having no issues finding clothes that work well for me. They are comfortable and cute and I am excited to wear them.

I’ve been loving dresses this past summer. It was hot and wearing anything denim, pant-related, or heavy was a no-go. Dresses were great because they were light and easy to pull on, but you still look put together and pretty!

As fall is coming I wanted to find some dresses to transition my way into fall and these next two do exactly that. Both of these fall right in middle of my shin which is a trend I’ve been loving.

This floral black one I got from Old Navy. They had it on sale for 50% off or something and I couldn’t resist. I also ended up getting a solid black version as well. I figure I can pair it with a denim jacket (once I find one) and some mules or white slip-ons and be good to go!

20180913_103535.jpg

This wrap dress with the light denim material with the sweet floral-ish design had my heart the minute I found it on the sale rack at Target. It was $13 and I was positive it would not fit me. When I figured out the ties and got it on I was in love. I can’t even tell you how much I love this dress!

20180913_093947

What’s funny is that I can usually never find too many things from Old Navy that fit my petite frame and dresses at Target are pretty much the same way. I find that things are super baggy or tight around my hips/butt and hang loose around my waist/chest so I was incredibly happy to have found my dresses!

This last item is a jacket from Zara and I am completely unsure whether I keep it or return it. A part of me LOVES it and can’t wait for cooler temps to wear it with everything and everywhere. Another part is skeptical and mocking the first part.

20180913_103424

I have nothing like this teddy jacket. It fits big, but it’s snuggly and warm and IT HAS POCKETS. ugh.

 

Loving Lately

Hi Sweet Friends! Welcome back to another favorites post πŸ™‚ I’ve been loving a lot of things recently so I’ve been trying to break it up into some different posts so you don’t have to read a massive text book of the things I’ve been obsessed with!

I’ve been really diggin’ all the floral vibes and when I saw this bag at Aldo I couldn’t resist. Also, this store has become a problem for me-a problem in the sense I can’t seem to leave without buying something every time I go in. What’s wrong with me??

The bag can be crossbody, a wristlet, or you can carry it as a clutch which I love because I love having options.

20180723_120559

I discovered this next item on whim. I was standing in line at Trader Joe’s hungry (story of my life) and I saw this chocolate. I couldn’t resist and threw it into my basket and now here it is on my favorites list.

The chocolate is creamy and smooth, but the plethora of hazelnuts add crunch. If you love Hershey’s with almonds I think you’ll love this…the chocolate quality is better here too πŸ˜€

20180723_120307

I LOVE smelling good and good smells just make me so happy and if I could somehow photograph smelling good as a favorite I would, but I can’t so instead I’ve picked a couple of my favorite scents this summer.

These body sprays by VS smells fruity, floral and sweet. I’ve been spraying them on post shower, when I need to feel refreshed, and even at bedtime. I can’t tell you how delicious these smell!

20180723_120839

Last, but not least are fresh flowers. I’m not sure if I’ve ever talked about fresh flowers as a favorite, but I really love having them around the house. They just add a pop of color and can freshen up any vibe you’re going for.

20180722_084021

Do you love having fresh flowers? What’s your favorite chocolate currently? Talk to me friends and let me know!

 

Loving, into, obsessed-My favorites

Honestly, whatever you wanna call it, it’s basically a favorites. I’ve been kinda loving a lot lately and it all makes me happy as anything!

This NYX Slip Tease in the shade Rosy Outlook is so beautiful and glossy. I’ve been loving glossier lips and this is an incredible color. I ate with this on and even though it did come off it didn’t come off patchy and awful. It kinda just looked faded or rubbed off, but evenly. Does that make sense?

20180717_144646

When it was still fresh and unopened…

I’ve been loving doing my nails again and find it pretty therapeutic. This hot pink color from Sally Hansen has been brightening up my hands and feet!

20180720_173216

 

This play-suit that this picture is doing no justice for. It’s the most gorgeous, vivid green and it fits amazingly. It’s light and easy to throw on for when you want to look nice, but don’t have the time, energy, or effort to put in πŸ™‚

20180717_145022

I found these earrings at Aldo and needed them because I needed a few more everyday pairs and I like shiny things!

20180717_145502

20180717_150057

The missing pair are these golden bubbly studs!

This basic white t-shirt that is made not so basic with the cactus coming out of the pocket was too cute to not have.

20180717_145837

Another polish I’ve been really into is this turmeric yellow shade from OPI. I found this at TJ Maxx and couldn’t resist it.

20180720_173334

These shorts were on sale at H&M and they are so nice! I love that you can tie them up to really accentuate your waist and what more-they have butterflies on them!!

20180717_145743

Speaking of glossy lips, this lipstick by Revlon in the shade Wine with Everything #520 is beautiful. It gives you subtle, pearly shine and a good wash of color. It’s not super pigmented, but it’s great for a everyday no mess, no fuss type of situation.

20180717_144827

I LOVE this dress. It’s navy and floral and who isn’t digging the floral situation this summer? It’s just lovely to look at and even better on!

20180717_145247

There are so many other things, but I will cap it off at that for now! Next Friday, I’m thinking about doing a food favorites type of situation. Let me know what you think!

What are some things you are into lately?

 

FabFitFun Summer Unboxing

I know I am a little late to the game, but I wanted to post my FabFitFun box! I was super excited about this season’s box because I had heard that there would be a Foreo included and I had been thinking about purchasing one for a LONG time. Let’s just say I was pretty happy I hadn’t jumped the gun since I got it in this box!

20180608_144419

Let’s jump into the box shall we?

20180608_144656

As I mentioned, the biggest reason I was so excited for this box was because of this Foreo Luna Fofo ($89). I love exfoliating my skin and I’ve heard so many good things about this particular tool. I am super happy to have received it in the box!

20180608_150040

Elemis is a skin care brand I had heard many good things about, but never thought about getting because of how pricey it was (this was $45). I am totally excited to try out this Papaya Enzyme Peel from them! It smells so good-nothing strong, just a nice soft clean, spa scent.

20180608_145459

Tarte was included twice in this box with the Sex Kitten Liquid Liner and Tarte Tarteist PRO To Go Palette ($43 for both). I usually use a pencil eyeliner so I am interested to see how I will do with this liquid liner. As for the palette, who doesn’t like playing with some eyeshadows?

Since it is summer and the hot sun rays are in full effect I was happy to have received the COOLA Face Sport SPF 50. I currently use Neutrogena, but this SPF is valued at $32 so I am interested to see if it’s any better than the one I currently use.

20180608_145848

I got another skin care product from Vasanti ($29). It’s called Brighten Up! It’s a facial cleanser that is supposed to take off dead skin cells and reveal bright, beautiful skin. Between all the products I have gotten in this box I feel like my face may be the brightest it’s ever been.

20180608_145556

Just like I love giving my face a good exfoliation I love exfoliating my body too and I am hoping this Jaboneria Marinella Hawaiian Black Lava Body Caviar ($48) will help with removing some of my dead skin and put some hydration back into it.

20180608_145711

I had been eyeing some make up cases for travel and so I was pleased as punch to see this Yumi Kim Makeup Train Case ($58) included in the box. I loved the pretty lavender purple shade I got with the sweet flowers all across! I will definitely be using the heck outta this!

20180608_150438

This last thing I wasn’t over the top about, but it is beautiful and can be useful. It’s this Pier 1 Imports Marble Ring Dish ($14.99). I placed it on our catch all table so it could catch all the random, small things we toss onto it!

20180608_145242

This was my FabFitFun box and I am so excited to play with all of the things! Let me know if you want a follow up post on any of the things I mentioned in this post. I would be more than happy to do it!

Also, talk to me in the comments below if you subscribe to FabFitFun and tell me what you loved about the Summer Box!

 

Old Navy Haul

We workout and hike and pretty active for the most part, but I never really think twice about what I throw on to go to the gym. It had been a while since I bought some new workout clothes so during a recent sale I hit up Old Navy.

I like Old Navy workout stuff because it’s comfy, but durable. There are some pieces that are not squat proof, but a LOT are so you have options! I only get leggings that I can squat in with no worries so if you’re the same these are all safe options.

Let’s jump into the haul!

I needed a basic pair of black leggings. I don’t know how I had no black athletic leggings, but I didn’t. These aren’t fun or exciting, just a staple I had been missing.

20180509_120541

I do have quite a few gray leggings, but I liked the mesh detail and the texture on the leg. These also felt a bit thicker so I thought they would be great for the colder months πŸ™‚

20180509_120632

This tank ended up being like 5 bucks. It was cute and pink and light!

20180509_120720

This sports bra was just another basic that I wanted/needed…nothing exciting here!

20180509_120223

These leggings were nice because I liked that it had some fun print on it, but since it was in a neutral color it makes it easier to wear.

20180509_120457

I loved this tank because it was soft and grey and I live in soft and grey. I liked the gold lettering because it added a little splash of bling without blinging you out!

20180509_120748

I was so torn about these leggings because I wasn’t sure how often I would wear them. They are beautiful and fun so I ended up leaving with them!

20180509_120356

Oh, I also got the sports bra to match πŸ˜€

20180509_120108

Where is your go to place for workout clothes? Let me know!

A few recent purchases…

In other words a haul…you guys, I have been out and about buying things here and there so I wanted to share with you some of my recent favorite purchases!

Friends, I am a pretty small human to be put in perspective I am 5 feet tall (5’3/4″ to be exact) and because of that I am constantly rolling up pants, jeans, whatever. It’s annoying as anything. I had been looking into buying some petite sized jeans and I invested in this Top Shop pair. I can’t remember the last time I’ve had black jeans, but these are stretchy and comfy and hit me right at the ankle 😍

20180423_132646

I don’t know if you guys know how much I love socks, but these were too cute to resist and at $6 for a pack of 3 there was no point in trying!

20180423_122420

I had been wanting a Hamsa piece for a while now and I had run into this one at Alex and Ani. I convinced myself I didn’t need it and moved on, but I kept looking for something similar and could never find one that felt right. While at the mall we stepped in and looked at it and the hubs convinced me I couldn’t leave without it. I love delicate necklaces and this one is dainty and detailed-just perfection!

20180423_132453

I can guarantee you I would not have bought this top if it didn’t have the tiny black hearts all over it. I am such a girly girl that I would probably buy anything with little hearts all over itπŸ˜…

20180423_132737

I had seen something similar to these earrings a long time ago on Bauble Bar and I kind of loved them. I ended up not getting them because I am big into touching, feeling, and trying on and I can’t do that online. I found these at Target and after placing them next to my ears a few times and thinking about what I would wear with them they came home with me 😁

20180423_132235

I have always loved dresses more than skirts, but recently it’s been kinda reversed. I found this skirt at Cotton On and loved the color, the little flowers, and the ruffles on the bottom. I also loved that it is a wrap skirt and you can tie it up in a cute little bow!

20180423_132858

I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Let me know if you have any favorite recent purchases and what they were. Have a lovely weekend!
