I love fancy appetizers. I think they are so fun and they’re always so tasty but when it comes to hosting a dinner, I always look for something really easy to make instead. I don’t want to spend all day preparing food or miss the party because I’m in the kitchen. Instead, I prefer to make “faux fancy” things, ie appetizers that seem fancy but in reality only take a few minutes to throw together. My go-to easy appetizer? A fun cheese plate.Read more
I can be really picky about clothes. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of times where I will walk into a store and find all sorts of new clothes to buy, but there are other times where I spend months searching for the perfect piece. I can’t help it, I just really like when something is exactly right. And it can be really tough sometimes to find just what I want. Not only do I want it to be the style that I’m looking for, but it also has to fit just right and be really comfortable to wear. It can be really tricky! That’s why I love the idea of custom clothing.READ MORE
Is anyone else super obsessed with dark green right now? I feel like I’m seeing it everywhere and I just can’t get enough of it! Green has always been one of my favorite colors but I don’t wear very much of it, although I do love a good mint color in spring. Darker greens are perfect for fall though, and I’ve been loving all the pieces I’ve seen, including this dark green mini dress. I love how this green works almost as a neutral color- it’s great for pairing with so many different colors and accessories.
Taking care of your skin can definitely be a process. There are so many different brands and types of products out there and it can be hard to figure out what’s best for your skin. Some products might not work well with others or they might not give the results you are looking for. That’s why I was so excited to try the Jan Marini Skin Care Management System. The system contains five products, all chosen for specific skin types and designed to work together to improve skin. Skin care can’t get much easier than that.
Our final full day in Paris was a little more relaxing in that we only had one thing on our list but we were still on-the-go for most of the day. I couldn’t go to Paris without visiting a fancy palace and I was so excited when we were able to fit a visit to one in our itinerary. We opted to skip Versailles (and the infamous crowds) and instead went to Château de Fontainebleau.
Fall in Phoenix is tough. Everyone else is breaking out their cozy clothes in dark, moody colors but it still feels like summer here. It’s just not cool enough yet to break out the warm sweaters and scarves. So instead I’ve been buying light tops and dresses but in deeper colors so I still get my fall fix. This burgundy lace dress from Yoins is one of my latest finds. I love the rich color but the short length and lace sleeves still keep me weather-appropriate.
