It may seem hard to believe, as many parts of the [U. S.] country are still under inches (if not feet) of snow- but Spring is on it’s way! Happy March everyone! In honor of the designated winter months being behind us, it’s time to think florals, colored jeans & pastels! YAY! Thinking of my favorite [early] Spring time looks, here’s a week’s worth of springtime inspiration!
Monday’s Workday Hustle
Hump Day Florals
A Terrific Thursday
Friday Night Fun
For those of you still fighting the wintery-cold, you’re almost to the finish line! & to all my fashionistas’ in warmer climates, I hope these inspire your looks! Are you as excited as I am!?
Until next time,
for the Love of Fashion (& warm weather),

Yesterday I turned another year older but was constantly reassured by others that I’m still very young – I wonder how many more years I will be told that, can’t be too many more!
The day was perfect. I mean, honestly, perfect! J sent flowers to my office in the morning, I had a great lunch at a Mexican restaurant with work friends, received an edible arrangement from my mom & sister, came home to a home cooked lobster and steak dinner then ended the day with a new pair of Nike running shoes from J. If that isn’t the definition of a princess day, I’m not sure what is!
Here’s some snap shots from the day:
I am so lucky for all the wonderful people in my life. Thank you all for making not only my birthday so great, but each and every day!
Until Next life,

hello loves & Happy Valentines Day!
We kicked off Valentine’s Day weekend with Med School Follies. It’s basically like high school prom .. For adults, that are in medical school!
I wore a bright red scuba midi from Express and J wore a slim cut modern charcoal suit, black bow tie & suspenders.
We had a fantastic dinner, watched funny videos mocking medical school made by students and my favorite, the photo booth!
We ended the night with dancing and a mashed potato bar! So good!
Overall it was a wonderful night and a great way to kick off the weekend!!
What are you guys up to this weekend?
Until next time,
for the love of Fashion (& Follies),
Yesterday I came home to a very exciting surprise – my first ipsy package! I first learned about Ipsy through the beauty blogs I follow and figure what’s the harm in a $10 investment!? I signed up mid-January so I unfortunately had to wait until now to get my first shipment. Let me tell you – it was well worth the wait! I am so pleased with the product I received!
What’s in my bag:
- peach blush
- hair volumizing spray
- deep plum eye pencil with sharper
- pastel pink lip gloss
- angled brush
- IPSY travel-size make up bag
Perfectly packaged together in a super cute metallic pink mailer.
Today I tried out the brush, eye liner, lip gloss and blush.
- The brush is perfect, I have been meaning to stop by ulta to pick up a new angled brush (no lie!) and poof! There one is! This is a fantastic brush for contouring!
- The blush is gorgeous, highly pigmented and a great shade for my skin tone
- I loved the eye liner, I haven’t experimented too much with colored eye pencils but I need to start – immediately. The plum color compliments and brightens my blue eyes!
- The gloss is very pigmented and not sticky, like some glossy can be. It’s a beautiful color to start spring with!
I am so thrilled with my Ipsy – I’m definitely hooked! Cannot wait for next month!

Hello Loves & Happy Monday!
Last night was the highly anticipated Grammy Awards show rich with awkward moments and head turning fashion.
First and foremost, I must rant about Kayne West. Is anyone else completely sick of his boyish tantrums at these award shows? Honestly, it’s like watching a 5 year old be told “No”. End Rant! Sorry about that :)
Moving into the GORGEOUS fashion of the evening, there are a few stars who really stood out to me as rocking the red carpet.
Jessie rocks this ‘black swan’ look. From the slick hair to the dark lip, this is goth done right. Loving the sheer overlay and floral applique and embellishments giving this gown interesting depth.
John Legend looks fantastic in this sleek and modern charcoal suit. I love the thin satin lapel and tie-less look. Dolce & Gabbana was made for his shape.
Katy Perry made a statement with this Zuhair Murad dress last night. Though a sheer overlay, I love the length of this which adds a bit of modesty to an otherwise sexy number. Tasseled lavender locks and BEAUTIFUL natural makeup was done just right.
Taylor’s long limbs were showcased beautifully in her custom blue Elie Saab gown. I love the slight ombre at her waistline. The fuchsia heels add a bit of unexpected
Uhh!!! My obsession with royal blue suits is on overload right now! Tailored to a tee, this suit was perfect for Aloe’s body shape and skin tone. Accessorizing with shoes and a bow tie just a few shades lighter than the suit itself is pure perfection.
Zendaya was glowing in a jewel-toned Vivienne Westwood number. So gorgeous with her skin tone and dark hair. Her smokey make up with well fitted and minimal jewelry is done just right.
This rounds out my list of fashion favorites for the 2015 Grammys. Who’d I miss?
Until Next Time,

Most of my Sundays are spent doing laundry, grocery shopping or TBH sitting on the couch, all day! Today I snoozed and watched an unhealthy amount of The Mindy Project.
What’d you guys do today?

Fridays are my favorite because it means date night with my hubby! Living in a city we’re still not completely comfortable in, picking a place for date night seems to take forever! We decided on an adorable cafe restaurant that overlooks the city. It was the PERFECT date spot! Here’s my ootn for our cute little date :)
