April 2015 IPSY Glam Bag & Beauty Box 5 Box

Note: I pay for IPSY and I’m lucky enough to be sent BB5 for review consideration. All thoughts are honest and 100% my own.

Don’t you just love Beauty Boxes?

It’s like every month you can expect a little treat in the mail and I just love that.

My weekend via the camera roll

Happy Monday ladies.

I hope you all had an amazing weekend.

Mine was a lot of fun.

Saturday was pretty relaxing and then yesterday I ended up at megacon.

Oh and before you judge me let me just say that my husband made me do it.

I’m only a nerd by association I promise ;).

Just don’t ask anyone I know in real life though because they all lie haha.

My weekend via the camera roll

On the way to megacon wearing my fave new sunglasses from Tar-jay (so fancy) and wearing my current fave lip radiance from Gleam called With my heels on.

My favorite part of Megacon is the cosplayers for sure because the whole process is so creative.

I love looking at all the makeup/costumes/etc it’s just amazing what some of these kids can create and how realistic it looks.


Speaking of Cosplay here is the gorgeous Yaya Han from the television show Hero’s of Cosplay.

Yaya is a professional Cosplayer, Costume Designer & Model.

That’s right kids you can make a living being a cosplayer which just goes to show you that you should always follow your dreams.

Find what you love and find a way to make a living from it.

It’s as simple and as complicated as that.

But enough Tony Robbins for now and back to the weekend pics haha.

I also always love heading to artist alley and supporting local artists.


Then to end the night I went to Downtown Disney to get some vegan/gluten free doughnuts from Erin McKenna’s Bakery NYC.


My weekend via the camera roll

I got one Samoa and one coffee crunch or something like that and they were both delicious.

If you’re ever in Orlando I highly recommend you check it out.

After the delicious doughnuts we took a long stroll to try and burn off a few of those calories and then called it a night.

How was your weekend?



Virtual Wish List: Stella McCartney Addition

Does anyone else have a virtual wish list?

It’s a wish list of things you will probably never buy, but if money were no object you’d pick up asap?

I know I do and there are a bazillion items on it haha.

So today I thought I’d share a few of the Stella McCartney items I’m drooling over at the moment.

1. Heart & Lips Appliqué Falabella Shaggy Deer Clutch $580.00.

2. Lips Iphone Case $75.00.

3. Cavendish Boston Faux-Python Tote Bag $1,435.00.

4. Falabella Small Fold-Over Tote Bag, Bright Coral $1,195.00.

5. Falabella Embroidered Denim Crossbody Bag $1,120.00.

6. Mini Baby Bella Shaggy Deer Tote $1,055.

I actually don’t own anything by Stella McCartney at the moment, but I’d love to change that.

I think I may have to pick up number 4 or 6 soon and I mean come on how cute is that phone case?

Do any of you own anything from Stella?


I’d love to hear from you.

Day in the Life: Walt Disney World

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Mine was very nice.

We managed to do some gardening, hit up the beach and then yesterday afternoon for Easter we headed on over to Walt Disney World and enjoyed the gorgeous weather.

I was afraid it would be packed, but it actually wasn’t too bad so I was happy about that.

Oh but before we went to Disney we stopped by The Polynesian to check out the new Villas/Bungalows.

Day in the Life: Walt Disney World

These things are in the Seven Seas Lagoon people!

So awesome and I totally want to stay in one, but from what I hear they are something like $3,000 a night.

Heading into the park….

My husband surprised me with this Dooney and Bourke bag for Easter.

Isn’t it adorable?

After that we headed back to the Polynesian hotel to check out the new bar called Trader Sams and then called it a night.

Hope you enjoyed and I’d love to hear how you spent your weekend.



Quick and Easy Smoothie Bowl Recipe

Today I wanted to share with you a current obsession of mine and that’s smoothie bowls.

Smoothie bowls are easy to make and so yummy.

You can eat them anytime of day, but I prefer having them for breakfast or as a healthier sweet treat.

So what do you need to create these yummy bowls?

Only about 5 minutes and a handful of items.

Simple enough right?

Now onto the steps.

1. Open a bag of frozen fruit. Place fruit with your choice of liquid (oj, water, etc) into the blender and then just blend the fruit until it’s almost drinkable.

2. Next pour blended fruits into a bowl.

3. Top with granola, nuts, coconut flakes, chia seeds, flax seeds, more fruit or anything else you like.

4. Eat.

So easy and delicious.

My favorite at the moment is the one pictured which is just sliced strawberries, cherries, pomegranate seeds, blueberries and raspberries blended.

I then just top that with an organic granola I picked up at Whole Foods, chia seeds, flax seeds, nuts and fresh cherries.

Have you tried smoothie bowls before?

Will you?

If you do let me know what combo of goodies you come up with.
