The Short Suit

I've been looking for a suit with shorts for some time now, and I managed to snag this baby at H&M.  What makes it great is its lightweight feel along with the textured shine that coats it.  It's perfect for a daytime outfit!

What I'm wearing:
H&M short suit
ZARA top
Forever 21 over-the-shoulder clutch
ALDO heels
Sally Hansen nail strips
Rich Girl by Richie Rich lipstick

Friday Favorites!

For this week's Friday Favorites, I have some of my favorite beauty, fashion, and home decor items.  What are some of your favorite items that you use often or highly recommend?  *I was not endorsed by these brands to promote the items listed below.

Since the weather has been a little chilly lately, I love throwing on a scarf and adding layers to my outfits.  Here are some of my favorite scarves at the moment.  Black scarf) Express, Gold scarf) Express, and Leopard scarf) ZARA.

I was searching for a contemporary lamp that had this look and feel to it, with the silver detailing and clear spheres throughout the base of the lamp.  Luckily, I snagged two of these lamps for my home and I love them! 

These Sally Hansen salon effects nail strips are one of my go-to beauty finds.  Being a busy mom with a career and trying to juggle everything leaves me very little time to sit down and do my nails.  Therefore, I like to use these nail strips because they apply quickly and they actually do last for the full 10 days as its package details.

Miami Beach has an organic store called "FRESH" market, where I love to stop in and grab something from.  Last time, I picked up this delicious blueberry green tea.  Green tea is beneficial in the sense that it is low in calories, can help prevent tooth decay and reduces the risk of cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, cardiovascular disease, infection, and high cholesterol.

This cuticle remover by Essie works wonders.  Almost immediately after you roll the tip of the pen over your cuticles, it removes cuticles right away.  I purchased this at Walgreen's.

Friday Favorites

It's time for another round of Friday Favorites!  See below for some of my favorite items of the week, whether it be beauty, health, home, or fashion items.  I was not compensated or paid by any of the following brands to review these products.

These Sephora Nail Bling Strips come in multiple different styles.  I don't think they are as great as the Sally Hansen nail strips, but they ultimately have the same effect.

The most delicious macaroons I have ever tasted.  I picked these up at a local farmer's market where different vendors from South Florida sell all of their treats and some days they also sell vintage clothing!  Anyway, these were delish!

Sephora had these available around the holiday season, as they serve as the perfect gift!  Included inside are twelve different perfumes that you can try.  I love it because it allows me to try all of them out and decide which one I truly want to purchase.  What is also great about it is that it comes with an interchangeable fragrance atomizer that you place each sample inside of. 
There were various sets, but mine included the following perfume selections: Bvlgari Mon Jasmin Noir, Clinique Happy, Coach Poppy Flower, Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue, DKNY pureDKNY Verbena, Giorgio Armani Acqua di Gioa, Givenchy Very Irresistible L'Intense, Gucci Guilty, Juicy Couture, Marc Jacobs Daisy, Prada Infusion D'Iris and Versace Bright Crystal.  Once the samples are finished, the voucher can be taken into any Sephora and redeemed for a fragrance!
I have a few different kinds of foundations that I use, but I am very pleased with this NARS Sheer Matte foundation in Tahoe.  My skin type is regular/oily, so I typically go for the matte foundations.  It blends easily, keeps my skin looking fresh and leaves no oily residue either. 
Here are a few of my favorite books:  Book of Secrets by Deepak Chopra, A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey, and Good to Great by Jim Collins.  I read a lot of motivational or inspirational books because I am all for positivity in my life.  I believe that whatever you put out into the world is what comes back to you: the law of attraction!
