Floral Moto Jacket

23 July 2014

Here I go again with the short situations, though in my defense I've been meaning to wear this {awesome} French Connection jacket since I got it on super sale a few weeks back while shopping with Gita. So, I mean there's that. Other than that the weather has been too good not to be tempted with Summer layering especially in the form of a short suit, am I right?

Alurent Anti-Aging + Instant Erasure Serum

22 July 2014

Granted I'm still in my twenties so I still have a little bit of time before my fine lines start going crazy, though I will say I'm convinced they're rapidly increasing in the crows feet department. I blame my fair skin that has been tarnished by the Florida sun for all these years, along with the added bonus of having children. Either way, I'm always on damage control and on the hunt for something to help out my ‘situation'. Enter Alurent Anti-Aging + Instant Erasure Serum, the new skincare product that tightens skin to visibly lift as it smoothest creases and wrinkles, all in 90 seconds, what?

Turns out Alurent Anti-Aging + Instant Erasure Serum is temporary injection-free alternative that quickly and effectively reduces the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles. Which in reality sounds kind of awesome if I do say so myself, so obviously I tried it, you know, after first making my husband do it. Reality, it actually works - there were definitely fewer lines, as you can see from my (lovely, you know make up free-ish ) before and after.

Here's another before and after via Alurent...

Now, I will say that it left a little bit of white residue after the 3 minutes but it easily washed off with a little bit of water, so no harm, no foul. My husband said that it felt tight on his skin but I didn't have the same issue, though I would understand that sort of effect from this type of product. Either way, I'm a fan.

Summer Shorts

21 July 2014

For me I consider myself a shorts gal, I love the ease of throwing on a pair of shorts whether they're cutoffs or a cute printed high waisted number. So obviously since Spring has sprung I've been stocking up on my fair share of shorts including this pretty pair. They're breezy but are a step or two above casual, making them part of my ideal Summer uniform. Ps - did I mention the shorts are a total steal at $14?

This Week..

19 July 2014

I feel like it's been one of those weeks that I just couldn't wait for it to end. Thankfully I've had a fair share of things to distract me from the chaos, mostly coming from the kitchen, because baking makes everything better. Well, that and new shoes... 

So I whipped up these Oatmeal Chia Chocolate Chip Cookies (recipe tomorrow!) and they were heavenly....
Also, getting to play with these sparkling beauties from Aruna Seth for a couple of days definitely brightened my mood. Who needs bows when you have butterflies?
Speaking of sparkle, a desk always needs a little sparkle.

At Home Style: Havertys Interactive Lookbook

17 July 2014

Over the last several years my husband and I have been combining our styles when it comes to putting together our home. While we don't always entirely see eye to eye (his excessive book collection and my seemingly endless supply of clothing and shoes), we do have a similar esthetics. I've found we lean towards more eclectic and unique pieces but with a bit of modern edge. So with our my recent move we've found ourselves adorning our tiny little apartment with sleek lines, eclectic pieces and of course, lots of practical storage (thank god for storage ottomans & bookshelves, I'm kind of in love with the Bart Storage Ottoman and Grand Tour Coffee Table from Havertys.) with each of our unique stamps on them. Obviously we're far from finished, it's an endless task, somewhat like adding to my closet.

However, I love the constant search for inspiration and new pieces from just about anywhere, most recently grabbing a little motivation from Havertys and their new interactive lookbook. Targeting four different styles Rustic, Fusion, Classic and Sleek, the lookbook makes shopping your specific esthetic a whole lot easier, and dare I say, fun. Just click the pieces and shop. I'm guessing we're Fusion, judging by our eclectic styles and I'm pretty sure we could easily copy and paste this entire Havertys set up into our living room (well, if it were big enough). I'll just settle for that fabulous mirror, and maybe the lamp for now.

Check out the Havertys Interactive Lookbook and tell me, what is your style preference? Don't forget to check out Havertys on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest for more inspiration and upcoming promotions.
