Sweet Weekend Sunshine


I hope everyone had a great weekend! The weather was beautiful here with lots of sunshine so I'm hoping it sticks around for as long as possible.

On Saturday we made our way over to Florida's west coast to visit friends and family for a well overdue trip and to celebrate a few different occasions. The first stop was to visit baby Cam and catch up with some good friends.





The weather was perfect for a pool party and getting some sunshine.



Catching up with some of my favorite girls and getting to hold baby Cam was so good for the soul.

After the pool we headed over to Siesta Key Village, one of my favorite beach towns on earth. Siesta Key beach has to be one of the prettiest in Florida, although we didn't get to enjoy it on this trip.


We met up with some friends to celebrate a birthday and enjoy some delicious seafood for dinner. Whenever we're in the Village, Daiquiri Deck is always a must stop for some refreshing frozen cocktails especially after a day in the sun.




We spent the rest of Saturday evening at my in-laws house catching up with them and finally getting a good night of sleep.

We had a relaxing Sunday morning drinking coffee and lounging around at my in-laws house. We then all went out for lunch along with my SIL and her husband to celebrate my precious MIL's birthday at one of our favorite restaurants in Sarasota.



After lunch we made the drive back home to get all the usual Sunday things done before the start of the work week. As I mentioned before, it was a well overdue trip to K's hometown and I'm glad we got to see and spend some time with family and friends.

Fun Springs Things


I've thoroughly enjoyed the last few low-key weekends since we now have some busier ones on the horizon. I was hoping to go to the beach this weekend but the weather, even though it was summer-like last weekend, is now back to cooler Spring temps this weekend. I'm not complaining because the 90+ degree weather came too soon and I was worried that we skipped Spring completely and jumped right into a blistering hot Summer. 

Luckily a little taste of cool weather has returned this weekend so we can still enjoy some Spring fun outdoors and in the fashion department like this adorable Pom Pom Clutch from Bauble Bar.
On Wednesday, I shared the details of one of my Spring Casual outfits which had some of my favorite accessories including the most comfortable Rose Gold Sandals from Lauren Conrad.

This Tropical Safari Off-The-Shoulder dress from Target caught my eye while browsing online. Perfect for Spring and Summer in Florida.

 
Have you tried the Rose Oil Blend by Pixi? I was given this as a gift and have used it as my nighttime moisturizer ever since. Another great product even though $24 is a bit steep for a facial product, I will definitely purchase again since a little goes a long way and it leaves your skin feeling incredibly soft once absorbed in.


I'm not a coffee or Starbucks fanatic but I happened to walk by one recently and decided to stop in for a little pick-me-up. I usually go for their plain coffee frappuccinos but got tempted by the sign for
their new Toasted Coconut Cold Brew. SO good!

This Nobody Puts Baby in the Corner onesie is my favorite funny and cuteness overload for the week. I had to send it to my pregnant BFF for a good laugh.


Congrats to the winner of our Spring Beauty Giveaway - Kayla from A Paper Arrow. Happy shopping!

Cheers to the weekend everyone!

Spring Casual



Fashion inspiration has started to hit home as the warmer days are settling in. As casual and pretty basic this outfit is for a sunny Spring day, it's my definition of comfortable weekend attire.

Spring Weekending


The weekend was glorious. I got to catch up on some R&R and enjoy the beautiful warm weather. It feels like Summer already in Florida during the day but I'm liking the cool Spring nights.


The weekend started off with a little happy hour after work with one of my girl friends. Nothing beats some refreshing Mojitos and some girl time catching up on life and such.



One of K's friends came into town with his pup for the weekend and stayed with us on Friday night. When I got home from my little happy hour, the guys went out to grab dinner and I stayed home puppy sitting Lola and her new friend, Soda. Thankfully they got along great and wore each other out playing for hours.



Saturday morning was perfectly relaxing catching up on some blogging and a few shows on TV. I headed out for my massage appointment which was much needed for this achy back of mine and got a few errands done afterwards.


On Saturday night we watched the movie Gringo: The Dangerous Life of John McAfee which was pretty interesting even though it didn't have the best ratings. I'm always intrigued by crazy, real-life stories like this one.


 On Sunday I slept in until about 10am. Glorious! I then got dolled up to meet up with another girl friend for lunch but she wasn't feeling well so I convinced K to go out for a quick bite and so he could watch some sports. Baseball is boring as hell so I had fun trying out all the fun SnapChat filters.


We only stayed out for an hour or so and then got into our swimsuits to enjoy some sunshine by the pool. The weather was hot, hot, hot - like 90 degrees - so we didn't last too long out there but still got some good Vitamin D and hopefully some color with SPF 50's approval.

Last Call For a Beauty Haul


Happy Friday friends!

Beauty products have been on my mind lately and Spring is the best season because it brings brighter colors for clothes, accessories, and makeup. Even though I live in Florida - "the land of no real seasons" - different skincare products are needed to deal with the temperature changes and brighter lip colors are always fun.

Today I'm sharing some new products I've stumbled upon along with my tried & true products that are permanently in my beauty/skincare routine.

(The Ulta/Sephora Beauty Giveaway is at the end of this post)

New to Me

I'm so intrigued by the new Bliss Correcting Sticks to even out different tones whether it may be blemishes, redness, or discoloration. They supposedly help soothe your skin before applying tinted moisturizer or foundation. Since I have pink undertones, redness is my main concern.
<
Yellow Corrector - Neutralizes redness
Peach Corrector - Corrects darkness and discoloration
Green Corrector - Camouflages redness and covers blemishes
Lavender Corrector - Counteracts dullness and brightens skin


Current Beauty Lusts

Tried & True Beauty Faves

I've mentioned these products before, if not several times, when I share my skincare routine and favorite makeup products.
