Sephora Spring Savings

Sephora is offering up to 20% off depending on your tier until the 19th! Just use code OMGSPRING. This is the perfect time to stock up on your favorite makeup items, and anything new you’ve been wanting to try. I personally love taking advantage of this discount every year, and wanted to share what I bought! Laneige Lip Mask This vanilla lip balm is heavenly. I’ve rebought it 4 times now. It’s a lip mask, but I wear it throughout the day as a lip balm. It’s the most hydrating lip treatment I’ve ever used and the texture amazingggg. Supergoop Glow Screen This is my everyday sunscreen. I love that it’s also a highlighter, so I just wear it over my moisturizer with nothing else on my no makeup days. It’s one of the only SPFs that doesn’t break me out. Givenchy Prisme Libre Foundation Holy cow, this foundation is incredible. I rarely stray from the foundation I’ve been wearing for the past 10 years, but this one is SO creamy and blends beautifully. I love how moisturizing/hydrating it feels on and the natural glow it gives me. I will definitely be rebuying this. The shade I wear is: 4-W280. Dae shampoo, conditioner, leave in conditioner I can’t get enough of these hair products! They smell so good and make my hair shiny and voluminous. I’ve rebought them 3 times now. Chloe perfume gift set I’ve had this Chloe perfume since high school – it’s a scent that literally everyone loves. It’s not too sweet or floraly, but it’s still very feminine, refreshing and inviting. I know my mother in law will love this for Mother’s Day! Tom Ford blush brush This brush is THE BEST. I’ve had it for years. It’s so thick, blends beautifully, and has held up after daily use, travel, and cleaning! Dr. Barbara Sturm eye cream I’ve tried hundreds of eye creams over the years, and nothing compares to the light, refreshing texture of this one! Plus it’s a clean product which makes me love it even more. I also love her face cream! Sunday Riley UFO oil I’ve been swearing by this stuff for years. Every time I travel I bring it with me, because I always break out after being on an airplane! 1 little drop of this rubbed into a blemish, and the blemish immediately calms down and shrinks. It’s next level. Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask This is a gentle, yet super effective mask when it comes to getting your skin clean! It removes dead skin, dirt, and blackheads like no other mask. I love using this every other week. Necesaire body lotion This body lotion runs out too fast for me! I use it everyday and love how thick it is. Tom Ford Soleil Blanc shimmering body oil This body oil is my go-to fragrance and body moisturizer for all beach vacations. It smells SO good and gives me the prettiest glow! I also love that it’s not super thick so it doesn’t transfer to my clothes. T3 1″ curling iron This is the curling iron I use everyday (I use the 1″ wand.). It heats up in seconds and my curls last all day with zero hairspray. Dr. Dennis Gross Universal Daily Peel Pads These peel pads are the best at removing makeup after I cleanse my face. They get every last drop off, and keep my skin clear and healthy. They are strong at first, so lightly use half of each pad the first few weeks!

Spring Style Q+A

I do an Instagram Story Q+A every week, and this week I decided to make it all about spring style. You submitted SO many amazing questions and I picked 15 to answer below! Spring Style Q+A Spring Style Advice What should I wear to a spring or summer wedding? This silky slip dress comes in multiple colors and is so elegant. The great thing about it is you could rewear it again and again to dinner with friends, or out running errands with a chunky knit sweater or white button down! I also LOVE this Zimmermann dress. It’s something that you could wear with flats after the wedding, or even brown boots and a camel coat in the fall! You can never go wrong with a sleek LBD, a navy racerback dress, or a fun pop of color like this or this (and no I don’t think it’s a faux pas to wear red to a wedding!) !function(d,s,id){ var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? 'http' : 'https'; if(!d.getElementById(id)) { e = d.createElement(s); e.id = id; e.src = p + '://widgets.rewardstyle.com/js/shopthepost.js'; d.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.__stp === 'object') if(d.readyState === 'complete') { window.__stp.init(); } }(document, 'script', 'shopthepost-script'); Best shoes to wear with casual dresses? Hermes Oran sandals are timeless – I’ve had mine for years (these are a beyond epic dupe.) I also love these Sam Edelman simple sandals (so comfy to walk in), and these Stuart Weitzman sandals. These are chic lace up sandals. What is the best bra to wear with a bodysuit? I wear these nippies 24/7 now. I prefer them to a bra. Best spring lightweight jackets? You can never go wrong with a green utility jacket. I also love a white linen or cotton blazer – I have this Veronica Beard one and throw it on constantly. This is a great affordable version! And how cute is this chunky knit cardigan? As seen on me here! What is your go-to denim for spring? I’ve been switching up my denim for lighter, more relaxed fitting styles and really love this pair of blue Mother denim jeans (size up if you’re in between sizes) and these creamy white Ann Taylor jeans (size down if you’re in between sizes – their jeans always run big for me!) Best summer shorts that aren’t too short or too long? I love these AGOLDE denim shorts! And these Zimmermann shorts are so classy. What should I wear for my engagement shoot? Congrats! I linked what I wore here in mine! It really depends on your personal style, your location, and what your partner is comfortable wearing. You don’t have to wear white! I feel like you can’t go wrong with a flattering midi dress. A few that I’d recommend are; this one, this one, this one, this one, this one, this one, this one and this one! What should brides wear to their bridal shower? An ethereal white dress would look gorgeous! A few that have caught my eye; this one, this one, this one, this one, this one, this one, this one, this one, and this one. What should brides wear to their rehearsal dinner? I bought a custom dress from Monique Lhullier at their Madison Avenue store, but it is really dependent on how casual or formal your wedding is! Take into account the setting, time of year, budget, and then find a beautiful white dress that will fit within those parameters. I’d suggest making a few bridal appointments and trying on a more casual wedding dress if your wedding is formal. If your wedding is casual, I like something like this, this or this. This is a fun one too. If your wedding is more formal, and you want to order something online versus picking it out in store, I love this one, this one, this one, this one, this one, and this one. !function(d,s,id){ var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? 'http' : 'https'; if(!d.getElementById(id)) { e = d.createElement(s); e.id = id; e.src = p + '://widgets.rewardstyle.com/js/shopthepost.js'; d.body.appendChild(e); } if(typeof window.__stp === 'object') if(d.readyState === 'complete') { window.__stp.init(); } }(document, 'script', 'shopthepost-script'); What should I wear to my graduation? I would wear a sweet floral dress like this, this, this, this or this! Fun dresses to wear on a beach vacation? Oh so many great ones…loving this one, this one, this one, this one, this one, this one and this one! !function(d,s,id){ var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ?

Bond Eye makes the best swimsuits that are one size fits all and super stretchy. Like, hi, so obsessed with this one!!! Also love this L*Space bikini. What are your favorite spring nail colors? OPI Funny Bunny, Essie Marshmallow, Dazzle Dry Touch of Love. What would your must have minimalist wardrobe items be for spring? Cream jeans, blue jeans, the perfect white T, a few bodysuits, a silky midi skirt, a straw tote, a LBD, a LWD, white sneakers and brown sandals. Meeting my bf’s parents for the first time, any outfit recs? So exciting! Depending on the weather, I would do a sweet dress like this or this, or a cashmere v neck sweater paired with a midi skirt!

Family Room Design

Decorating an entire house is a slow, but steady process and we are excited to be thinking about our basement/family room area next! Our basement will essentially become a family room where we can relax, watch movies, and comfortably seat 10+ people. Right now our current family room/living room area upstairs is great, but it’s more formal than a typical family room. The basement will be the perfect in between. Family Room Design I love to mock up a simple design layout in Photoshop before purchasing anything. It’s an easy way to get a feel for what a room will look like and readjust as needed. I centered the room around the sectional I wanted. And I knew I wanted a neutral L shaped sectional to fit the space. I then chose a rug to make the area feel warmer. I love a patterned rug and the colors in this one are beautiful. From there, I chose a coffee table that would compliment both the sofa and rug styles and colors. Then I chose a side table, table lamp (still on the fence about this one, but I have a few other options I’m mulling over), and lastly the 2 side chairs. I rarely like to use patterns when it comes to furniture, but the subtle, neutral stripe fabric in these chairs is timeless and ties in nicely with the rug. All of the pieces I chose blend together without looking cookie cutter. They play off each other well, while each standing out in their own unique way. The overall vibe/theme I was going for was relaxed, cozy, neutral, updated classic. Our basement floors are going to be a thick jute carpet (they’re an ugly tile right now that I can’t wait to get rid of!) so the patterned rug will really pop against the jute. Family Room Accessories I want the room to be bright and airy, so I don’t want to clutter it with too many accessories. I’m thinking of bringing in a few different textures like these subtle velvet pillows, linen pillows, maybe even a quirky floor lamp, these fun straw floor pillows, and ceramics. I really love these abstract prints. Shop the rest of the room below!
