Weekending + Urban Decay Naked Smoky Giveaway

This weekend was the perfect mix of relaxation and productivity which was much needed after a hectic few days traveling back home from Las Vegas and trying to catch up with work, blogging, and life in general. Having said that I don't have a lot of fun stuff to share other than an awesome giveaway hosted by the lovely Kate from Green Fashionista!

Friday night was a pizza and TV kind of night spent relaxing at home watching Orange is the New Black with my two loves ~ K and Lola. Thankfully I got to sleep in on Saturday which was exactly what the doctor ordered. I spent the rest of the day unpacking, doing laundry, cleaning/organizing, grocery shopping, and finally relaxing at the end of the day. K also washed my car which was much needed!

My Sunday morning surprise was receiving this Michael Kors Jet Set Crossbody beauty in the mail which I scored on Amazon for $40 cheaper than retail value plus 2-day shipping. Win-win!  I can't wait to wear her out and about. A crossbody purse is much needed for my constant travel adventures.

We had brunch at home on Sunday and then went to get some sunshine at the pool. The rest of the day was spent blogging, food prepping, and getting organized for the work week.

Giveaway time!

I've teamed up with some awesome ladies to give away one of Urban Decay's newest Naked Smoky palette for one lucky winner!

Long Weekend Lounging

The long weekend was perfectly relaxing. It was much needed to keep quiet before we head to Chicago this week for another long weekend vacation to celebrate K's birthday.

On Friday night, K and I went to dinner at High Tide Harry's. I wasn't impressed with the seafood and the service sucked but glad we at least got to try it out.

After dinner we stopped at a sports bar to hang out for a bit and ended up having these pineapple upside down cake shots which were really good. 

 On Saturday I caved and ended up giving K his birthday gifts early since we'll be rushing to the airport on his actual birthday this week. I think all (or at least most) men could do with a lifeproof case to protect their phones. You can find them at Marshall's for half the price.

I scored some beachy coach flip flips for $28. I think that's a steal and they're very comfortable.

On Sunday, we did some quick shopping for our upcoming trip and then went to a friend's pool party. The weather wasn't ideal but it cleared up and we had a good time hanging out with friends.

Monday was like my typical Sunday spent doing laundry, cooking, blogging and just lounging before another crazy work week. Hope you enjoyed the extra day away from work!

It's no secret my ideal weekend is spent either lounging at the pool or hanging out at the beach. My pool/beach bag remains packed at all times and ready to grab when we head out on the weekends.

Some other summer essentials that may not be able to fit in my bag:

Always remember to load up on sunblock and drink lots of water!
