Spring Look Book

Hey Dolls!

Spring is just around the corner so I wanted to share with you some of the trends i've been loving. 


1. The Updated Blouse 
I have been obsessed with blouses that either have a unique back or big ruffle sleeves. They are easy to throw on when you are in a rush because they don't require many accessories.




2. Grayscale Patterns
From marble sunglasses to snake print booties. I just cannot get enough of these simple and chic patterns that subtly spice up every look. 



3. Statement Sleeves:
My favorite trend so far from this year has for sure been statement sleeves and I love that i'm seeing it again for spring.

Calming Down In Cancun

Hey Dolls!

This past weekend I traveled to Cancun, Mexico for a much-needed mini vacation! I must say, this was one of the most luxurious weekends of my life. I felt like a queen tanning (burning) in 80 degree weather while indulging in stunning views with unlimited food & drinks. My family and I stayed at the Dreams Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa Resort.

Usually, when my family and I travel we like to explore the country we're in and see all of the major attractions but, this time around we decided to lay low and really relax. The resort is absolutely amazing! All of the staff is so accommodating and they all really seem to care about their job. My room was spectacular with picturesque views of the ocean and all of the majestic pools. On my balcony I had my own jacuzzi which I used every night as I sipped on my Coconut rum & Pineapple juice (my new go-to drink). They have so many restaurants at the resort so we didn't have enough time to try them all but, they all have vegan options which I was SO happy about.


The weather was hot during the day and breezy cool at night. So, my wardrobe consisted of bikinis, flowy blouses, wide leg pants, and lots of denim skirts. This place has so many Instagram opportunities, I was in heaven. The beachy cabanas surrounding the pool and ocean were absolutely perfect.

Bikini: Triangl.com
Top: Similar item
Pants: Similar item 






The sand on the beach was surprisingly not burning hot and the water was pretty cold, I was pleasantly surprised.

Outfit 2:
Top: Forever 21
Skirt: Similar item





Aside from my own jacuzzi on my balcony, there were lounge chairs for tanning and lots of space to take in the luxury resort.
Outfit 3:
Top: Zara.com
Skirt: Zara.com
Shoes: Similar item 






I will definitely be back to Mexico! I cannot say enough about this vacation. If you get the chance to come to Cancun don't forget to check out the Dreams Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa Resort.

Cabin Fever

Hey Dolls!

Happy snow-weekend (lol)! Due to the massive blizzard that hit the Northeast I have been lounging around the past few days drinking wine, watching movies and eating way too much food.

Online Shopping Finds No. 1

Hey Dolls!

Iv'e decided to start a new series on my blog called "Online Shopping Finds". As you probably know, I have a shopping addiction. Sometimes, I online shop for hours while adding things to my cart and never actually purchasing anything. So, I am here to show you the coveted items that I may or may not have purchased this time around for some style inspiration.




1.  New York's in Love Satin Trousers from NastyGal.com - Satin anything has been my obsession lately & the fact that these are wide leg pants makes them even better. 

2.  Sally Boutique Lace Bodysuit from Boohoo.com - This bodysuit is SO sexy. I feel like you could pull it off day or night if you style it correctly. 

3.  Julia Ribbon Wrap Ballet Flats from Boohoo.com - These flats are the most adorable things i've seen. Grey is my new favorite color for the winter... these are a must have.

4.  Lena Strap Choker V Neck Oversized Jumper Boohoo.com - Turtle neck chokers?? YES 

5.  Sondra Roberts Marble Resin Clutch from Nastygal.com - Marble is an obsession that I have yet to get over. Every girl needs to own this.

6. Rare London If All Else Scales Asymmetric Skirt from Nastygal.com - Vegan leather snake print skirt. That. Is. All. 

7. Bow Out Velvet Headband from Nastygal.com - I have always loved bows. This oversized bow is the perfect touch to any hairstyle. 

8. Thelma Ankle Boot from Urbanoutfitters.com - Snake print. Vegan leather. Booties. YES ( and they are on sale) 

9. Maisie Satin Flute Sleeve Choker Top from Boohoo.com - This pink color + satin material + bell sleeves = heaven in a top

10. Rachel George Doheny Marble Stapler from Nastygal.com - If I had a desk I would buy this...


Catch you soon babes!

My Favorite Cruelty Free Beauty Products

Hey Dolls!

As you know, I am Vegan and I'm always on the look out for new makeup and skincare lines that are cruelty free. I want to start spreading awareness on how awful the beauty industry is. The stuff that goes on behind the scenes is not pretty. PETA.org has a database where you can look up if a company is cruelty free or not.

Some of my favorite Cruelty Free brands include:

Milani Cosmetics

Tarte Cosmetics

Urban Decay

NYX Cosmetics

E.L.F. Cosmetics

Kat Von D Beauty

Lush 

Bath & Body Works

ColourPop Cosmetics

EcoTools


I don't want to go into detail on my blog about the cruelty so, here are some informative links from PETA.org:

1. Animal Testing 101 

2. How to prevent animal testing 

Current favorite cruelty free products:

1. Milani Conceal + Perfect Foundation  - My favorite go-to inexpensive foundation

2. Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation - The best high end cruelty free foundation

3. NYX Liquid Illuminator - An awesome affordable liquid highlight.

4. Tarte Amazonian Clay Bronzer - The best bronzer ever & it's waterproof.

5. Kat Von D liquid lipstick - Get the shade Lolita!!!

6. Milani Lip Glosses - I'm not much of a gloss girl but these are my favorite

7. NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream - Get the shade Transylvania for the perfect vampy lip

8. Mint Detox Mud mask - Perfect for black head removal & for the days where you want to relax and treat yourself!

9. Burt's Bee's Peach & Willowbank exfoliating wipes - They smell like a juicy ripe peach & are great for exfoliating

10. Urban Decay Naked3 Palette - I have all of the Naked palettes but this is my FAV.

11. Milani Lash Trifecta mascara - Makes your lashes super long and separates them for a very full effect!

12. Urban Decay Primer Potion - Ive been using this eyeshadow primer for years & will never stop using it.


 Even if you don't go Vegan, switching to cruelty free products is the next best thing you can do!


Talk to you soon babes

Sunday at Ocean Cliff

Hey babes!

I hope your Sunday is going well! Today I went to Newport to shoot with my new friend Brendan. We decided to check out the Ocean Cliff Hotel. I remember having my Senior Prom there a few years ago and it sure still has its beauty and charm like it did then.

As you know, i'm obsessed with statement sleeves at the moment. This top was such a steal and goes with literally everything. I paired it with my favorite ripped jeans and my faux fur coat.

Top: H&M  (I linked a similar one because the one I have sadly sold out)
Jeans: H&M
Faux Fur: H&M (No longer on website lol)
Watch: Nicole Vienna





When the top I have goes back in stock I will change the link. Although, the one I linked is still SO cute. 

Talk to you soon!
