Long Weekend Favs

Happy Labor Day Weekend! I'm looking forward to a long weekend, lots of pool time, and hitting up some great sales. On my radar is Express *of course*, Target (extra 25% off women's clothing and accessories on Cartwheel), and maybe a trip to the outlets.
Before I get into my favorites from this week, I wanted to say a huge thank you to Helene for her awesome and super informative webinar the other night. If you missed it, don't let her next one go by without joining in on the fun!

Favorite Workout goes to my favorite Barre3 studio. Still sore today, but it's the good kind of sore. It burns so good! And how cute are those new glass water bottles in the shop when you enter the studio?
Favorite Me Time - Nothing like lighting one of my favorite candles, painting my nails, and sipping on champs.
Favorite nail color - I chose OPI's The Berry Thought of You for my pedicure, and it was the perfect color for me since I'm still enjoying summer but trying to go for a darker hue to lead into fall later this month. It's the perfect mix between a pink, purple, and red. So pretty!
Favorite Beauty Product - I tried out the lip stain I got in my VIB Appreciation Bag in one of my recent Sephora order. I loved how bright it was, and it even smelled yummy too!

Royal Cut Outs

I'm continuing my royal blue kick with a cut out dress I picked up at Express with some birthday gift cards. I've been loving their dresses with subtle cut outs, and picked it up to rock at a friend's destination wedding in Punta Cana in October.
Dress - Express | Heels - old {similar} | Clutch - old {similar} Nordstrom | Ring - Wanderlust + Co | Necklace - Rocksbox | Cuff - Express | Sunnies - old {similar} Juicy Couture| Watch and Bangles - Kate Spade
Apparently, royal blue is my new signature color. What color(s) do you find yourself gravitating towards?

Pink Champs is Always a Good Idea

It's no secret around here my love for some bubbles, so when some friends and I finished up our Harry Potter marathon in their beautiful home theater I brought over a bottle of Fancy Pants Sparkling Rose for the occasion.
I picked up the bottle clearly because it said Fancy Pants, and sometimes one must channel their inner Heather Dubrow and not only be Fancy Pants but pop open some champs. Who else but Heather would coin the phrase "Champs is always a good idea"? 
We loved several things about this bottle - it was pink (the best part), it says fancy right on the bottle, the bubbles (of course), and that it was the right combination of sweetness without being too sweet or too dry. 
*Cheers*

Sephora Goodies + Sale

Happy first day of September! I'm not quite sure where August went, but I am still squeezing out the last goodness of summer until the calendar or the weather tells me to stop. Or I may continue the fun even longer, which is why I moved to Florida.

With the close of August, comes the rest of my shopping sprees courtesy of birthday gift cards. I cashed in another gift card at Sephora and picked up a few more items I'd been wanting to try out. Other than the moonshadow palette (which is a part of the sale), I went for mostly hair products.
Living Proof No Frizz Shampoo | Blossom & Bloom Ginseng Volumizer | DryBar Mai Tai Spritzer | Single Ribbon Hair Tie | Moonshadow Baked Palette
I may have had a few Sephora hauls recently, but that doesn't mean I don't have some favorites at their So Long, Summer Sale. Below are some of my picks from the sale, including one of my holy grail products - Urban Decay Primer Potion.

Sephora Sale
Benefit's They're Real! Tease | Urban Decay Primer Potion | Tarte Maracuja Blush & Glow | First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Serum | Sephora Collection Brush | Sephora Collection Moonshadow Baked Palette | Sephora Collection Ultra Shine Lip Gloss | Murad Environmental Shield Duo

What are you hoping to pick up at the sale at a great price?

Relaxing Weekending

I'm very happy to report that I finally had a relaxing weekend, and Tropical Storm Erika ended up losing it's strength thankfully which means we are all safe and sound here in the "sunshine" state. I enjoyed some much-needed couch time, did some shopping, wine tasting, and gave the house a deep cleaning.
The rain ruined my Happy Hour on the patio and in the pool plans on Friday, but that didn't stop me from enjoying more Sparkling Skinny Girl Margarita in my birthday martini glass. Better late than never right? The rest of the evening was spent with competitive games of Super Mario Galaxy 2. Some of those stars are not easy to get....
Saturday, I was up bright and early to head off to Express for their jeans sale and to Target before spending the afternoon in the pool with my new pretty floatie.
*I picked up a pair of these Stella skinnies*
Then it was time for some fun in the pool with my new flamingo floatie from Emily. She's absolutely perfect, and I decided to name her Rose (like the champs).
After floating away on Rose for a while, I got ready to go out to the Wine Room to sample wines with a gift card I had gotten from a friend for my birthday. And because wine and cheese - YUM!

*Bubbly on Tap*
On Sunday, I did an outfit shoot downtown before the rain moved in, and was finally able to get some cleaning done around the house and enjoy movies on the couch. Perfection!
