Happy Thursday Babes! This week has been weird…to be honest a short week after an extended holiday weekend always throws me off. All I have wanted to do is cuddle up in bed…with my brand new Buffy! Ok so I literally LOVE sleep…like a comfy bed is the most important thing to me no joke haha So when I saw Buffy’s promise that it is the most comfortable comforter you will ever own, you know I had to try it. Spoiler Alert…it is!
I was on the hunt for the best comforter after I moved and after trying out Buffy…I found it! Buffy’s comforters don’t harm animals like other comforter’s do through the gathering of the feathers process + the comforter instead of being made from cotton which can have a negative impact on the environment, it is made of silk-soft natural eucalyptus fibers which use 10x less water to cultivate than cotton.
The comforter itself is beyond comfy + I love how it has a cooling effect as opposed to standard cotton ones that make me overheat at night.
Want to try for yourself? You can actually do a free trial to test the Buffy in your home and then purchase or return depending on your thoughts! The comforter comes in various sizes + it only costs between $120-$190 – very fair price for the most comfortable comforter you will ever own…trust me!
Plus the packaging and accessories are so cute! This face mask…Resting Buffy Face? I mean how cute right?!
My Pajamas are from Shop The Mint (you can even get them monogrammed if you like)! Check them out here.
Are you ready to try the comfiest comforter ever?!
Ok…technically it isn’t officially summer yet (that is June 21st) although whenever Memorial Day comes around in my mind, it’s summer hehe :p Since I am in a summer state-of-mind, that means I have to dress like it. Two things I love in life…discovering new boutiques to find the cutest looks ANDdiscovering new murals around LA to shoot in front of (always on the hunt for the gram…no joke, my BF comes home daily telling me about colored walls he has found haha :p #walladdict)
This post combines my two loves, a new look from a new boutique AND a new wall.Carerra Cafe on Melrose swaps out the mural on their wall every month or two + I have to admit, sometimes it’s a lame promo for a movie or TV show but this time it was the cutest freakin’ wall I ever did see! When I spotted it I told my BF my famous words he dreads hearing…’I have a vision‘ meaning he’s on photographer duty + he will be spending his weekend shooting outfits hehe :p Luckily he loves me + I pay him in Philly Cheesesteaks haha!
Before I go on + on about how much I LOVE this wall, I need to go on + on about how this adorable floral ruffle dress from Poppy and Sky! It is the perfect summer staple. With ruffle detailing, floral print + a flirty silhouette it is for sure a must-have. My BF called it ‘farmer girl chic’, honestly…I’ll take it haha! I literally love it so much. Poppy and Sky offers cute, stylish pieces at an affordable price point in regular + extended sizes (Did I mention how much I love when brands are size inclusive? Because I DO!)
I had to go all white for my shoes + bag…I love white, it’s so chic + clean.
I hope ya’ll had a great Memorial Day Weekend! I sure did – it was filled with photoshoots, pool days + plenty of BBQ (yasss I love a good corn on the cob with some yummy burgers…who is with me?! hehe :p) Even though a lot of people were traveling this past weekend, I tend to travel at non-peak times (to avoid high airfare costs or traffic haha) so our next trip is to Arizona in June! I love to always plan a trip in the near future so I have something to look forward to…just keeps you excited about what’s ahead in my opinion :p
Whether you plan a day trip or a cross country trip or an international trip, one thing is key…packing! I don’t know about you but one of the most exciting parts of upcoming travel is prepping for what is ahead + what is always on my mind when traveling? Traveling in STYLE duh! From my airport look to what I am packing…it all starts with stylish, durable + functional luggage! My go-to brand? Gabbiano Luggage
Since I travel a lot, finding durable yet stylish luggage was super important to me. Goodbye are the days of your wheel jamming at the airport or the zipper constantly getting stuck…all I wanted was luggage I could count on that also looked great for the gram…you know, because if it isn’t on Instagram, did it even happen? 😉
That’s why I was so excited to find Gabbiano Luggage and the amazing variety of styles they carry…so much so they make you want to travel. Whether you like a sturdy hard shell luggage set or a lighter soft side luggage set, Gabbiano has the luggage you need for any trip!
I literally love the luggage sets from Gabbiano because 1) the 3 piece sets means you get great pieces that can be utilized for any trip big or small 2) the styles are trendy, colorful, sophisticated + fun…depending on your personal style + 3) the pieces are durable – they will withstand being tossed at baggage check or rolled throughout the airport to your gate etc.
I personally love the color amethyst because being a February baby, that is my birthstone…so the fact that I was able to get this Gabbiano Luggage Genova Collection Set in Amethyst made me one happy camper. The color + hard shell design matches my personal style making it perfect for travel + for countless Instagram photos (because did a trip even happen if it didn’t make it to the gram? I think not haha)
Best part?Gabbiano luggage has enough room for ALL of my essentials…trust me I pack a ton. Whether it is shoes, bags, clothes or toiletries, I am a serial over packer but luckily Gabbiano luggage has enough room for me to pack everything including the kitchen sink…great news for me…bad news for my boyfriend who hates my overpacking. He also is not a fan of lugging my luggage around the airport (because the wheels would jam or it was too heavy etc). BUT with Gabbiano luggage, I no longer need to bug him to handle my luggage because I can carry + roll it with ease thanks to Gabbiano’s durable + functional design.
Since my luggage is full of style (inside + out), I had to share an easy yet chic outfit to wear when traveling AND It pairs perfectly with my Gabbiano Luggage!
My comfy dress is from 32 Degrees. I legit LOVE this dress because it comes in a variety of colors, is affordable + it flatters every body type. I have been living in their dresses ever since I got them (even wore one to Universal last weekend – ICYMI it’s here).
I paired the dress with this fun patchwork denim bomber jacket from Skies Are Blue Clothing – I love the fun patches for a casual cool look. My kicks are my favorite Adidas Superstars. They are cool, comfortable + easy to slip on + off at airport security.
Where are you traveling to next?
Don’t forget to bring your Gabbiano Luggage along for the ride!
I am finally starting to feel like myself again after having a major allergic reaction + then being sick for what felt like forever (ugh don’t you hate when that happens…) Anyways…I am back to feeling like myself again + more motivated than ever to create some fun content! I am super pumped to head to a fun (and colorful) event tomorrow with Oh Joy to celebrate her collaboration with Erin Condren (ICYMI she makes the cutest planners that I am OBSESSED with) AND I am planning out some cute looks to shoot this weekend! While I am still deciding on what to do for Memorial Day one thing is for sure…I will be spending plenty of time poolside!
Back to reality…and this look. I have been dying to try the whole shirt dress trend and was super excited to find this piece from Eshakti. What I love about Eshakti is that they customize clothes to fit YOU! Yea…like how celebs have pieces custom made, you can too – crazy I know :p I am loving how you can put in your measurements on their site + also make tweaks to styles they have (like raise the hem line etc)…it is a new twist on shopping that I am all about!
I styled this dress with these great color block sling back heels I scored on sale from Ivanka Trump. Don’t they look just like the Chanel ones? Total ‘look for less‘ moment right here! P.S. they are also super comfortable! Score!!!
How cute is this bag? I got it from Evve Milano + am loving the fun design!
It comes with a long strap to wear as a cross body in additional to the top handle + it zips all the way around, making room for all of the essentials you need!
My sunnies are Le Specs (honestly my favorite high end looking yet affordable sunglasses brand).
Are you ready to have some fun in the sun? With summer in full swing it’s time to enjoy the great outdoors. Whether you head to the beach, vacation, pool or anywhere else, protecting your skin in the sun is crucial in this day and age. With skin cancer on the rise it is essential to make sure you wear SPF all day long, that’s why whether I am wearing a full face of makeup or just going all natural, I first apply Olay Whips with SPF 25.
They say the foundation for flawless makeup is great skincare. That’s why I never start my day without an amazing quality moisturizer. The Olay Whips moisturizer applies smooth, feels lightweight + doesn’t leave any unwanted residue.
Olay Whips provides a matte, light as air finish along with a slight glow (that’s why I often wear it alone without any makeup)! The formula also has anti-aging ingredients to keep your skin looking young!
The inclusion of SPF 25 is what makes this product so great. It keeps you safe in the sun + is an easy go to for everyday wear and sun protection.
I stock up on this amazing product at Walgreen’s who has great promotions + awesome deals when it comes to Olay skincare. Currently you can shop Olay Whips, buy one get one half off! Now that’s a WIN!
I am BEYOND excited about today’s post! I am revealing my gorgeous new office space I have been working so hard on. Since I work from home, having a space that inspires my creativity + allows for endless amounts of content creation was key for me. I knew I wanted a light + airy feel (to match my instagram aestheitc…duh – P.S. ICYMI I shared a whole post of how I edit my insta photos here) and I partnered with a few vendors who helped make my dream a reality. From this stunning pink velvet couch from DHP Furniture to the stunning gallery wall made possible from Framebridge to these fun furry pillows from Best Home Fashion to the classiest coffee table books from GiGi New York…everything I wanted came together to make the ultimate office space!
Let’s first start with my marble accent coffee table (an Amazon find) + these GiGi New York coffee table books. I was on the hunt for a great marble table + scored this one on Amazon for under $150! It is a great size + makes for the perfect flatlay background!
These coffee table books are amazing quality, bound in real leather + are the perfect accent decor elements to add to any space. I honestly want to collect them all! Best part? they are AFFORDABLE!
I am OBSESSED with this pink velvet couch from DHP Furniture! It is girly, fun, comfortable AND retails for under $400!!! Insane right? This couch anywhere else would be $1,000+ so I highly suggest heading to DHPFurniture.com because they have the styles you love for your home at the BEST (and I mean the best) pricing!
Honestly their site makes creating the perfect space easy. They provide step by step tutorials on how to plan out + create the gallery wall of your dreams and when it comes to framing all you do is select the sizing of your piece, pick your preferred frame + Framebridge does the rest! They send you packaging to ship your pieces to them in so this way they handle the framing…and in just a couple of weeks you receive your final framed pieces ready for hanging!
It is that simple! Seriously made creating the ultimate office space that much easier.
This tutorial from them is what I relied on when it came to designing + hanging my pieces!
My shoe + bag display is one of my favorite parts about my office space. Since I was at my last apartment, I desperately wanted a gorgeous space to show off the bags + shoes I have worked so hard to collect over the years. ICYMI – I am a major bag addict. I bought my first Dior bag at 14 with money I earned scooping popcorn at my local movie theater + I never let up on my bag obsession since. Every bag purchase was a milestone. Like my Chanel – my first Chanel, purchased in Paris, my first ever trip out of the country + to the city of love (ugh amazing moment) or my white Gucci soho tote (featured in yesterday’s blog post) that I purchased on Rodeo Drive my first week in LA…every bag has a story + displaying them is like a trip down memory lane every day.
I found the perfect shelves on the cheap from Walmart (hey I love to mix high + low…save my money for bags hehe :p). They retail for under $30 + come in various sizes + colors available daily.
I hope you all had a great weekend! Mine didn’t go exactly as planned :p I was supposed to head to Universal and instead I ended up in urgent care with my eye swollen shut, my hands beyond swollen I couldn’t grip a pen + basically the worst allergic reaction EVER. All these years I never had an allergic reaction to anything BUT apparently you can experience it at any age…the culprit? An oral acne medication…who would have thought. So I spent the weekend attempting to recover from being a lobster lol…here’s to hoping this week goes a lot smoother than this past weekend.
This look was actually shot earlier Saturday morning before my allergic attack happened haha I was enjoying the sunshine + great weather + this cute white dress from Tart Collections – it is the perfect summer staple…a little white dress!
I layered a denim jacket over it…this one is my favorite from Old Navy (on sale now).
My bag was my first ever Rodeo Drive purchase right before I moved to LA 3 years ago…it’s a Gucci soho tote (they discontinued the soho collection last year (ugh so frustrating I know) but you can find some styles still available on eBay or the Real Real etc).
My wedges are from Marc Fisher and they are super comfortable to wear all day long. Plus the tan color matches almost every outfit!
Will you be adding these pieces to your summer wardrobe?!
