Loving

Hey sweet people!

I have had a few things piling up that I have been loving and wanting to talk to you about so I thought what better time than the present? Yeah?

Let’s jump right in starting with some fashion favorites πŸ™‚

I had bought a dress from Aritzia for a special occasion that was going to be happening in the summer! I loved it, it was beautiful. Then I went to TJ Maxx and found this beauty. It’s this blushy, mauve, nudey pink color with a beautiful floral pattern and fluttery sleeves. It’s a wrap dress that cinches me nice and tight with the tie at my waist (I do wrap it all the way around instead of just tying it on the side). It is a high/low style dress which is great for a shorty like me and Β the best part? It has pockets!!

Needless to say this won by a million miles and I ended up wearing it! I learned that it would have been much better for me to be patient because this dress came in under $30 while the Artizia dress was $70!

This next dress was also a steal at around $18! I found it at Target and immediately fell in love. I have a major love/hate relationship with the Target clothing section. It’s very hard to figure out my sizing there. I am usually an XS or smaller when it comes to dresses and anytime I try on XS there it can range anywhere from fitting beautifully to looking like I’m wearing a large trash bag. I am talking about within the same brand so it’s frustrating to say the least.

I was a little nervous going into the dressing room because I knew it could go any which way, but it ended up fitting like a dream! The buttons on the dress are functional, but they don’t go all the way down. It leaves this little rectangular open space that isn’t too noticeable because once you tie the dress at your waist it all bunches and flows together.

It feels so light and flowy and perfect for a summer day! I’ve worn this dress multiple times since I got it and have absolutely loved the versatility.

I love a good pair of earrings and while at the mall with my brother in law and his GF I found these beauties at Lucky. I love that they are hoops and have this sweet pearl detailing. I found them to be just so lovely and also very versatile. You can dress them up or down!

Moving on from fashion to food…

Summer fruit is a current obsession…I’ve literally just been eating watermelon for dessert after every meal. It is sweet and hydrating and I find it much more delicious than just drinking water πŸ™‚ Besides watermelon, berries have been so incredibly yummy as well…honestly any sweet, juicy summer fruit is a favorite!

Avocado toast with tomatoes on sourdough…I may have mentioned this before, but I just can’t seem to get enough. I have literally been having this with my breakfast every morning! I love the acidity and freshness that the tomato adds and with a little black pep-omg I have died and gone to avocado toast heaven!

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…

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!

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™‚

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.

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

 

Friday Faves

Hello sweet people!

Are you guys as ready for the weekend as I am? I am super ready, but before the weekend starts I thought I would bring you a few things I have kinda been liking hard.

This was a gift from the hubs parents when they visited us back in January and I just love it. I have super tiny wrists which make bracelets and watches hard to find and I just never like they way they look. This one has this beautiful gold and the strap is a lovely tan leather. I think it’s so pretty!

20180409_111605

You guys know the hubs gifted me with a Fab Fit Fun box for my birthday and it had this face cream in it. I honestly have been loving it! I have combination skin (normal on the parameter of my face and oily t-zone), but I don’t like matte anything. This is a light-weight lotion that does a great job at moisturizing and leaving my face with a lovely glowy finish.

20180409_111801

Easter is over and done, but I found this bowl and spoon and couldn’t help but buy it. I mean it is light pink and has ears and whiskers-how could I not buy it?? It’s supposed to be a dip bowl, but I will probably use it for cereal or ice-cream or something else.

20180409_110343

My last favorite is this make up mirror we had bought from Costco a few months ago. I wasn’t completely sold on it, but I can now say I am a fan. It’s really handy when both hubs and I need to shower because I can shower and do my makeup in the bedroom instead of hogging up the bathroom with makeup time.

Current Loves

Hello sweet friends! Welcome to another favorites video πŸ™‚ this one is beauty themed. I’ve been thinking of having this post for a while, but there’s been so much food to share that this got shoved to the back.

BUT not anymore! Today is the day so let’s start with something I can’t live without:

I know I’ve shared this item on the blog before, but this is the portable one. No other chapsticks have come close to this cocoa butter Vaseline. The smell, the smoothness, and how much relief my lips feel when I slather this on is ridiculous!

IMG-20171203-WA0003I love smelling good and good smelling things (who doesn’t?) so here’s my first perfume favorite. The hubs got me this as a surprise monthiversary gift! Isn’t he just the sweetest! This smells like roses, but fresh, real roses-it’s just beautiful.

IMG-20171203-WA0002

I had been wanting another travel size perfume and when I smelled this I knew that this had to be it. I’m not good at describing scents, but out of all the Elizabeth and James’ perfumes this smells the most fresh and floral (my favorite type of scent) πŸ™‚

20171203_083112

We found this necklace at a bookstore in DTLA. It felt like it was meant to be because after buying this we ran into the person that made the necklace! It just made the necklace that much more special.

20171203_081636

This hand cream from L’occitane was a necessity. I was all out of hand creams for my purse and my hands were parched. I ended up getting this rose scented one as well as another floral one that I keep in my car for emergencies!

What are some things you have been loving?? I would love to know! Let me know in the comments below πŸ™‚

 

 

Target Haul

Let me start by saying that there is absolutely no food involved in this post! Can you believe it?? Major gasp! You guys know I love food, but I love Target and clothes and beauty too πŸ™‚

I thought since I recently went to Target and bought a bunch of beautiful things I would haul them on here because it’s one of my favorite things to watch/read!

Here we go:

I have to start off on a low note and it breaks my heart a tad bit. This polish by Essie is so gorgeous. This color felt like such a beautiful summer/fall transition, BUT it chips so quickly! I always use a base and top-coat, but it still chips within the day. If you have any tips to prevent this pleeeeeasssee let me know!

20171203_082549

Mrs. AlwaysRight by Essie

I did get this polish as well which I have not yet tried, but am excited to do so! It’s this beautiful dark red

20171203_082856

Garnet Red by Sally Hansen

I got three tops that I absolutely couldn’t leave the store without…they are all floral and just seemed like good options for the fall and winter in Cali πŸ˜€

The first is a cold shoulder top that I have in another light blue color. I love the way that the blue one looks and wear it so often I had to get this one. It’s more summery and this feels more fall/winter vibes with the colors so it’ll be loved during the next few months.

20171203_080902-1

This second one is a long sleeved top. I don’t know if you can see it, but it has a slight bell sleeve which I adored. It’s beautiful and flowy. The back dips a bit lower and has a cute tie so it can be tied up in the back!

20171203_080514

The third is also cold shoulder with a bright red floral print, but it’s in this dark navy so it seems seasonally appropriate πŸ™‚ The sleeve part has trim that makes it even more fem and girly. Major heart eye emojis!

20171203_080429

I wasn’t in complete love with all of the items in this next purchase, but I saw donuts and I was sold. I mean c’mon how adorable are these??

20171203_080025

This next item is functional and cute-I loved the soft, dusky pink. I had a bright pink wallet before this and it was nice and thin and fit everything. I wanted something similar and this one fit the bill!

Did you guys enjoy this non-food related post? I love hauls and thought it would be fun to do one of my own. Let me know what you think in the comments!
