Love is in the air+ so is a little lace…I am swooning over lace tulle skirts at the moment, so when I snagged this skirt I knew it made for the perfect fairytale ‘esq‘ date night ensemble!
I love a great feminine moment + lace tulle skirts are as girly as it can get in my opinion. I find that when you wear them you should let them take center stage so I paired them with some neutral colors, making it a look perfect for date night (I know sometimes tulle skirts can be a bit intimidating for everyday wear).
An added bonus? Every time I wear a tulle skirt I instantly feel like Carrie Bradshaw ♥ Not a bad way to feel, right? 😉 hehe
I highly encourage every gal invest in a little tulle moment – getting a tulle skirt in a neutral color is easier to style for wear on a regular basis (think pairing it with a white tee, a cropped sweater or simply body suit + moto jacket etc).
I am linking to some of my favorite tulle skirts below:
Nothing preps you for Valentine’s Day quite like some fresh blooms paired with the perfect Date Night beauty essentials for a romantic yet flawless look ♥ I love two things when getting ready for a special occasion — fresh flowers (like these beauties from FTD Flowers) + brand new cosmetics (especially lightweight, natural picks like these from IT Cosmetics)!
FTD Flowers reached out to me asking if there was someone in my life who inspires me that I would like to send some Valentine’s Day blooms to and of course Kristi came right to mind! Not only was she the one who inspired my big dreams of moving to LA but she has really been my best friend, confidant and support system here in LA since all of my family is back in NY. Kristi is my family…hey the old saying goes ‘Friends Are The Family You Choose For Yourself‘…well yes I completely agree!
Whether you are looking to send blooms to your sweetheart, family member or maybe even your best friend, FTD Flowers has the best selection of Valentine’s Day themed bouquets that are sure to stun! I mean how precious is the heart vase these tulips came in?! GORGEOUS ♥ P.S. other than the fact that Kristi is the sweetestgal ever…she is in my mind, the Martha Stewart of LA! Haha! She always has the cutest decor, sweetest treats + is always the hostess with the mostess…hence the M&M heart above (after shooting these photos I had to create this little masterpiece :p)
Now to my favorite beauty picks for V-Day from IT Cosmetics! I have been a huge fan of their products ever since I first tried them over a year ago, so I love trying new products as they release! My current favorites are their mascaras! I LOVE the NEW Superhero Mascara (available soon). It provides thick, long, flawless lashes without any clumping! YASSS! I also am a huge fan of the Hello Lashes Extensions Mascara (#LongLusciousLashes)…I love the brush design for easy application.
With Valentine’s Day comes the need for…let’s just say it…lingerie! While shooting this cute lingerie set ThirdLove sent to me, my little cuddle buddy Charlie decided to hop into a few pictures…after all he will be my date for the romantic occasion haha! ThirdLove has great lacey lingerie available in an array of sizes to fit every figure and I love all of the great colors they have like the baby blue bra and panties they sent me shown here.

Happy Thursday Loves! Time to share my current beauty obsessions with you guys. I am constantly trying new beauty products in search of the ‘end all’ for my skin and makeup routine…I think recently, I just about found it! To start, I am a firm believer that your scent remains in the room well after you exit…what does that mean? Make it memorable, and with Juicy Couture’s new ‘Gold Couture’ fragrance…you are definitely bound to leave a scent that is sensual, sultry and berry berry good (had to make a slight witty line…the perfume has a fabulous hint of wild berries).
My next obsession? Kypris Beauty products. I LOVE the Kypris Beauty Elixir 1…made with 1,000 organic Bulgarian Roses (perfect for Melissa Rose huh? My middle name is Rose…little fun fact), this elixir helps provide the right amount of moisture to aid in perfecting that dewy complexion us ladies are always after! The other fabulous potion I tried? The Antioxidant Dew. It helps rebalance your complexion…something that is well needed after all the pollution this fashionista experiences commuting in and out of NYC! I’ve discovered over the past few months that the key to flawless makeup really is healthy skin. That means using products that help well moisturize your skin all over…that’s why Boots Botanics Deeply Moisturizing Body Lotion and Boots Botanics Deeply Moisturizing Hand Cream are my current goto.
Once you make your skin baby soft, it’s all about fixing up that complexion. Boots No 7 CC Cream and Youthful Eye Serum are great ways to help remove discoloration, under eye bags and to brighten up your skin…making it ready for makeup application.
