This Week....

You know that lovely floral scent you smell when you walk into a flower shop?  Well, the Modern Notes home fragrance diffuser and reed set in Flower Market will make your abode smell JUST like that.  Very light and fresh, this scent is perfect for summer!

Am continuing to have so much fun mixing and matching different prints and patterns!  Although the pieces from this outfit are no longer available (ModCloth dress, Old Navy shirt, Ann Taylor shoes), part of the fun of experimenting with this trend is shopping in your own closet and seeing what kindsa different outfits you can come up with!

Love relaxing or running errands in this vintage-looking Cookie Monster T!

Essie's Cascade Cool Nail Polish - new from Essie's summer collection.  Also posted about it here.

Wearing an Anthropologie dress for a night out to dinner at Union Square Cafe.  Can you believe I found it in the LOUNGE section?!

(Safe) Fun in the Sun!


If you're like me, summertime comes with memories of being halfway out the door of the house and hearing your mother shout, "Did you remember to put on your suntan lotion?!"  Well, that's not the only thing we can do to take care of our health in the summer. Read below for my top five fun and fashionable tips on how to be safe in the sun!

1.  Swackett
My friend, Jessica, introduced me to this awesome and FREE weather app, which you can read about here. It tells you exactly how to dress for the weather, and will even let you know when it's necessary to pack up the sunscreen or a bottle of water!


2.  The Vapur: A Collapsible Water Bottle
Speaking of water bottles: OMG!  I am obsessed...OBSESSED...with these ADORABLE and PRACTICAL water bottles!  It's super important to stay extra hydrated in the summer, but my problem has always been that I hate schlepping around my water bottle once I've finished drinking from it.  Well, The Vapur is a collapsible water bottle - meaning when you're done with it, it rolls up so you can neatly tuck it away into your bag.  AMAZING, right?!  You can also freeze it and use it as an ice pack.  It comes in a variety of chic styles, including the Runway and - you will die when you see this one - the Sweater, which includes a preppy-looking bottle cover that'll keep your bottle colder longer, and moisture-free!

3.  Jergen's Natural Glow Revitalizing Daily Moisturizer
I posted about this AMAZING self-tanner here.  I just can't say enough about it!  You can either get it for fair to medium skin tones, or medium to tan skin tones.  Plus, it'll make you smell delicious...another benefit of staying out of the sun!

4.  Urban Outfitters Mint by Goorin Marled Hat (currently on sale!) 
Sometimes in the summer, when I know I'll be outside for a while, I like to wear a hat to protect my skin and provide me with some shade.  I LOVE this floppy hat from Urban Outfitters because it's the perfect size; it provides plenty of coverage, but it's not so big that it'll overwhelm your face.  (And, it comes in a variety of colors!)

5.  Bobbi Brown SPF 15 Tinted Moisturizer
SPF 15 Tinted MoisturizerAnyone who reads this blog knows I LOVE all Bobbi Brown makeup!  Well, her SPF 15 Tinted Moisturizer is no exception. This is definitely one of those makeup products I couldn't live without!  It barely feels like you're wearing anything, which I love.  Not only does it provide some protection from the sun, it's also a fantastic alternative to a heavy foundation - giving you a light yet effective coverage for the summer months.

Hangin' Out

Yesterday, I spent the day with my parents in Long Island.  I knew we'd just be hanging around the house, so I opted for an easy and comfy outfit, hair in a pony, minimal amount of accessories, and barely-there makeup.  

T-Shirt: American Apparel (also wore it here)
Skirt: Anthropologie
Shoes: Steve Madden Vakay Flip Flops in Gold Leather (only $29.95!)

Necklace: Free People
On Nails: Essie's Mojito Madness.  Kiiiinda funny, since I'm drinking a Mojito!

If this isn't heaven, I don't know what is.

Clean up manicures or help create a perfect line when applying eyeliner with these Q-tips.
Get 'em here or at your local drugstore.

Copied Jessica (who took the mojito pic above) and bought these SUPER comfy wide-leg lounge pants.

Guest Blogger: Jessica Introduces the Cutest App!

Hi, Everyone!

I wanted to introduce you to my hilarious friend, Jessica.  LOVE her!  She told me about the CUTEST app the other day that's become my new obsession, and we decided it MUST be shared with you.  Read all about it below!
How great is her curly hair?!
Hey, Glamour Addicts!

This is Jessica, with the infamous mole, and I had to tell you about the best free app out there!!! It's a little something called Swackett. It's a new kind of weather app
 that actually tells you what you want to know when you check the weather: what to wear!

Swackett features "peeps" - guys and gals (pets included!) adorably dressed in weather-appropriate clothing for that particular day (earmuffs and a long coat on cold days, a sundress and flip flops on hot days...) so you know exactly how to dress when you head out of the house. The peeps will even remind you to bring your umbrella if it's raining, or to put some sunscreen or a water bottle into your bag if it's really hot. There are also LOTS of other features, including current weather details, an hourly forecast for the next twenty-four hours, daily forecasts for the next five days, and fun facts (dirty snow melts faster than clean snow...who knew??).  

Swackett is a free app for your iPhone and can be found in your iPhone's app store.  It's also available for iPad, Mac, and as a web app, too!

Happy dressing!

Saturday Funnies

Hi, Everyone!

Check out two of my favorite videos from this week!

The first one is short n' sweet - about thirty seconds.  Watch Jimmy Fallon struggling at Catchphrase...I was DYING!  Hilarious.  

The second video (it's actually two videos - there's a part 1 and a part 2 - and each one is about five minutes long) is Martin Short being interviewed on Conan.  I am just crazy about him...he ALWAYS delivers and has SUCH a quick sense of humor.  Watching him is like watching a Vaudeville act or something...love him!!!!

Make a Statement

The other day, I was really feeling the T-shirt and jeans vibe...sometimes, there's just nothing better!  I decided to add a statement necklace in order to give a little oomph to my casual ensemble.  I love how effortless this look is, like, "Oh...just jeans, a T, and a kick-ass necklace...no big!"
