PopSugar: #MustHaveBox

IMG_20140610_083812

 

Well…..if you know me…you know why I said YES when PopSugar asked me to share their #MustHaveBox service here on the blog.  I mean, my entire business is based around the same idea!  Not sure what I am talking about?  Click HERE to find out all about the service.  Firstly, I have to say, it was just SO freaking nice to be the one to tear open a box of goodies.  I am usually on the other side of the package….creating boxes of style for all of you.  It was a REAL treat to be on the receiving end.  Secondly, I really loved the contents of the box.  It contained things I never would have bought for myself ….Hello?  Who reads poolside with a one and four year old?  Maybe, the book will bring the moments of silence needed to read it.  A girl can dream.

 

Breaking  it down:

1.  I am super excited to have an excuse to read and just escape from life for a few minutes each day.  I have heard wonderful things about this author and can’t wait to dive into The One & Only by Emily Giffin.

2.  Since I am a pool rat…and recently joined a country club, a fabulous turkish towel that can also serve as a stylish wrap is SO up my alley. I will be wrapping myself up in this tomorrow for the pool.

3.   Lemon Wet Wipes……wipes and I just go hand in hand these days….beyond that I love LEMON scent.  One of my favorites.  These are essential to throw in your handbag and go!  Great box item.

4.  I love lotions and potions almost as much as clothing and shoes…so this Sacha Juan Citrus Body Lotion is sure to become a fav.  I actually was running low on body lotion, so this came in the nick of time!  The scent is amazing and it is super smooth!!!  Love it!

5.  I wear my hair up in either a bun or ponytail most days.  I know, I know…why bother having long hair if it is always up- but truthfully that is part of the reason I keep it long- so I can put it UP!  These Lollies Hair Ties are awesome…They are made from recycled swimsuits and supposedly do not stretch out like the typical hair tie.  Where have you been all my ponytail wearing life?

6.  I probably could have lived without this addition but dammit the chips are delicious!  One Potato Two Potato.…housed those in a few seconds after receiving them…oops!

7.  Also received a Native Union giftcard for $15.  The site is super cool with unique designs and cool techie gifts…I was kind of into the iphone cases for my husband…BUT…the 15 bucks didn’t allow me to buy anything I wanted without chipping in a decent amount.  Candidly, I am not a huge fan of giftcards that require you to pitch in for something you most likely didn’t need anyway.

Three Stylish Mamas: Lyssé Leggings

Lysse Leggings

I am back with my two favs, Kristin from BonBon Rose Girls and Jill from Glamamom for another Three Stylish Mamas collaboration.  Honestly, how can you possibly talk about stylish mamas and NOT mention leggings.  They are a staple for any fashionable mom on the go. Furthermore, how can you talk about leggings and NOT mention Lyssé.  I am elated to be featuring my favorite legging brand today.  I first discovered and blogged about them here, remember?  I have added several pairs to my collection over the past few months.  What I love the most is the higher rise…it really holds you in …leaving you muffin top free and completely smooth through the waistline.  Yessss!!!!

How do you style leggings for Spring?  Here, I kept it simple and fun with a colorful printed scarf and my favorite new gladiators.  I loved the idea of a sandal to change it up from my usual suspects like moto boots.  Be sure to pop by to visit my girls here and here to learn the details of their fabulous legging looks!  As always, thank you for reading and Happy Shopping:)

My FIRST year in review!

I can barely believe it has almost been a full YEAR of blogging (technically March 5th).  Thanks to all of my friends, family, clients and followers for visiting my blog and inspiring me to stay current and connected to my love of all things fashion.  As most of you know I am hard at work coordinating a Nicole Miller bridal fashion show for over 300 guests (NICOLE MILLER will be in the audience) this Saturday March 5th.  I am about to be entrenched in the complete chaos of model fittings, alterations, styling, music and so on and so on.  I am not sure I will post regularly this week…and in an effort to celebrate my YEAR ANNIVERSARY…..I wanted to highlight some of my favorite outfits from the past year.  I have enjoyed challenging myself to dress fabulous (almost) everyday and really dig into my closet to find hidden gems.  Hope you enjoy the journey as much as I have and as always find some OUTFIT INSPIRATION!

Check out one of my FIRST posts that I still find SO relevant for Spring HERE

I will leave you with my FAVORITE shot from the blog…Me and my little man on the beach in early fall 2010
