April Favorite Things


|| 1 || Maxi Tank Dress || Perfect for transitioning into the warmer days of spring and summer. Just throw on a breezy cardigan or denim jacket on a chilly night.

February Favorites


Happy February! I’m so excited to participate in the Favorite Things Link-Up with Lip Gloss and Lunges and Beauty and the Greek for February! Let’s get started…


Lip Gloss & Lunges


collage1 // Chanel CHANCE EAU TENDRE // This is my signature fragrance. It is delicate and radiant with an intoxicating light, fruity trail. 

2 // Sweet Kale Salad // Eat Smart’s new Sweet Kale Salad is nutrient dense, containing 7 super foods: broccoli, brussels sprouts, green cabbage, kale, chicory, cranberries, & pumpkins seeds. I found this at Costco; it is gluten-free, vegetarian friendly and so tasty! 

3 // The Happiness Project One Sentence Journal // In her best-selling book The Happiness Project, Gretchen Rubin discovers the pleasure of writing just one sentence every day. People tend to forget about the little things that make them happy each day. The purpose of The Happiness Project 5-year journal is to write down one sentence reflecting on what made you happy today. Making this a daily ritual is a great way to help you realize you’re probably happier and luckier than you think.

4 // Yerba Prima Tampico Dry Skin Brush // Dry brushing is simple practice that benefits your health by stimulating the lymphatic system, allowing the body to eliminate toxins more efficiently. I find it invigorating, energizing and a great way to start my day. 

5 // Scandal // Scandal is an American political thriller TV series starring Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope. The show takes place in Washington, D.C. and focuses on Olivia Pope’s crisis management firm, Olivia Pope & Associates, and The White House. I’m on Season 2 and I can’t get enough! Anyone else hooked on Scandal?

6 // EOS Lip Balm // The Evolution of Smooth. This organic, natural lip balm is paraben free, packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin E, shea butter and jojoba oil, and keeps your lips moist, soft and smooth. I love the sweet mint flavor. 

7 // Lemons // Whether squeezing lemon over a fresh salad, cooking fish with sliced lemon, or adding a wedge to my water, I can’t seem to get enough of this citrus fruit these days. Lemons are so refreshing and can add a hint of flavor to just about anything. 

8 // Nikon D3100 DSLR // This camera is my new baby. It takes amazing high-resolution 14.2 megapixel photos and records 1080p high-definition video with sound. The Nikon D3100 package includes two lenses: a 18-55mm lens and a 55-200mm lens. It is very easy to use and perfect for beginners.




January Favorites Linkup



This post is part of the Favorite Things Link Up with Lip Gloss & Lunges and Beauty and The Greek


1. Giada’s Feel Good Food: The Food Network’s Giada De Laurentiis reveals her secrets for staying trim, shares her favorite healthy recipes including nutritional information, personal lifestyle and beauty tips, and answers the question her fans ask most often, “How do you stay so trim?”

2. Polar FT40 Heart Rate Monitor: This heart rate monitor is perfect for anyone who needs clear guidance to monitor their fitness level. I am so impressed with this little device: it accurately displays calories burned, stores previous training data, weekly workout history and even syncs with most of the cardio machines in your gym. I love how it lets you know when you are burning fat vs improving endurance.

3. Beyonce’s New Album: This album will give you some serious energy on the treadmill. I can’t help but increase the pace with this one. The new self-titled Beyoncé album has 14-tracks and comes with videos for each song. Beyoncé features artists Jay-Z, Drake, Frank Ocean, and Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

4. iPhone 5s: I am an Apple girl through and through and I finally upgraded after 3 years with my iPhone 4. Siri is a whole new concept to me. The iPhone 5 is so fast, so clean, syncs with all my fitness gadgets. Simply amazing.

5. Le Creuset Skinny Grill: Simple, healthy cooking starts with this cast-iron grill pan. I love it for grilling up everything from fresh seasonal vegetables to scallops and shrimp. You can sear the food on the stove top and transfer it right into the oven to finish baking. The high ridges on the grill pan give the food authentic grill marks while separating fatty drippings.

6. Anthropologie Candle: Maybe I’m late to jump on the anthro candle bandwagon, but these candles have such a clean, fresh scent that warms the house without being overpowering. This Capri Blue Mercury Glass Jar Candle in Volcano has hints of tropical fruits, sugared oranges, lemons, and limes, redolent with lightly exotic mountain greens.

7. Nars Lip Gloss: This lip gloss gives some serious shine and sexy color. It is extremely wearable and lasts all day long without drying out your lips. I love wearing it alone during the day and over a lipstick for a more dramatic evening look.
