Happy Friday | ‘Flowerista’ by Essie

FLOWERISTA by Essie

Happy Friday! Not gonna lie, this week has me tired. We started building our pool in the backyard this week. And Mason (10 months), who is usually a good sleeper, has been waking up at the crack of dawn – what the f***?! Nothing a good eye concealer can’t fix though!

Anyway, my week was filled with the usual mommy stuff – laundry, errands, cooking, and running after my boys. But I also squeezed in some time for the gym, and a MUCH NEEDED manicure and pedicure with one of my besties!

This weekend we are going up to West Palm Beach to visit with my husband’s family. After we get home from a day of stuffing our faces, eating delicious authentic + homemade Lebanese food (ohhh so good! And FYI my husband is Lebanese), then the hubby and I will have a date night! We usually try to have one night a week alone. He and I usually go to a movie or grab some dinner + drinks. What are you up to this weekend?

Petals and Pumps

Currently Loving…

November 20, 2014

I’m really loving this weather we’ve been having here in Miami! It’s been in the 50’s/60’s since Tuesday night, and that’s all right by me! Coming from someone who grew up on the West Coast – I miss the chill.

I’m also loving my nail polish. Isn’t this silvery-gold color cool?! I got my mani done last week, and since I’ve been rocking this color I’ve been getting so many compliments + inquiries about it! It’s perfect for the holidays!

my new milk frother by Aerolatte (via Sur La Table): This little gadget is AWESOME! It froths my coffee just beautifully! If you’re a #coffeefirst kinda person, YOU NEED THIS (it’s just under 20 bucks too)!!

This bluetooth speaker by Bose! Finally, I’ve found the best bluetooth speaker (trust me I’ve tried many!). I’ve been enjoying it for a couple of weeks now, playing holiday tunes throughout my house from my kitchen. My husband + I love it! It was so simple to set up, right out of the box. It has the quality you expect from Bose –  the sound is great + it looks cool! » It comes in fun colors too. (BEST value found on QVC.com)

Beauty Stocking Suffers

Beauty Stocking Stuffer Ideas

November 17, 2014

Beauty Stocking Suffers

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 

Eyes, lips, cheeks, face, body…There’s a little stocking stuffer for every girl in your life » perfect for mom, your besties, or your sister! I personally have tried all but one product above. That’s why I carefully chose these products for the fabulous gals in your life!

1| Benefit’s luminous highlighter:  This is my go-to for adding that soft glow on my face in the evening (date night, parties, dinner). Perfect for this time of the season too with all the festivities going on. Don’t worry, it has no glitter. It just highlights your features with a soft sheen.

2| My favorite eyeliner:  Mally knows how to do eyeliner! If you’ve given up on eyeliner like I did (before trying this one)… WAIT!! This Evercolor Starlight Waterproof Liner will convert you, honey! Gift this to your besties, they will ♥ you (even more)! This liner IS waterproof BUT, so creamy and easy to apply. And the colors are beautiful!

3| Tarte’s Amazonian Clay Blush:  My favorite good-for-your-skin long-lasting blush! I have 5 beautiful clay blushes by Tarte (+ many more products from this line). It truly is long-wearing blush, formulated without any junk + has so many shades to choose from, great for any skin tone. That’s why this is another perfect stocking stuffer!

4| This eyeshadow palette ♥♥♥:  Urban Decay‘s Naked 3 Palette, is every beauty junkies favorite! What’s NOT to love? » it’s UD’s newest Naked palette (all are extremely popular BTW), it has 12 beautiful shades, it’s convenient, it has shimmer, glitter + matte shades – versatile going from day-to-night, + it just wears + looks good on!

5| EOS A Ray of Holiday Sunshine Rachel Roy 3 PK:  Who doesn’t love EOS? The cute spheres feature Rachel Roy’s signature wing design.
Of course, I love that EOS is 100% Natural, USDA-Certified Organic! This limited-edition pack makes a great stocking stuffer… or split them up!

6| Sugar Shine Lip Treatment: Fresh Sugar lip products are amazing! I’ve been a fan of their Sugar Lip Treatment for years! And now there’s Sugar Shine, Sugar Lips ‘big sister,’ as I like to say! She’s high-shine, which makes her perfect for the Holidays!!

7| Essie Winter Mini Nail Polish Collection:  I own 3 colors from this collection. My favorite for the season has to be ‘Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Low.’ It’s gold and silver and sparkly! This mini collection is perfect to gift, so she can try them all! » (See ‘Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Low’ on my nails here)

8| Winter Dreams Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter Duo (Limited Edition):  If you haven’t tried Josie Maran‘s Argan Oil products, you’re missing out on something truly luxurious! Her whipped body butter is the best organic moisturizer out there. Ultra hydration, non-greasy, + leaves your skin glowing! It is especially great for these winter months. Gift this duo, and she’ll know what I mean! Purchase the cult classic here.

9| NuFace Mini:  This at-home facial toning device is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand (hence, a stocking stuffer idea). This is the only product I haven’t tried. But I would say, this is a great gift for the gal who’s looking for a mini ‘face-lift!’ The NuFace mini is affordable, portable + has been known to really give results!
