As much as I love skirts and dresses. Sometimes it's so nice and easy to slip into a comfortable pair of jeans.  I love wearing denim when I’m out running errands or even to grab lunch with my girlfriends. These grey jeans are one of my favorite pairs they have a subtle distressed look and the length is the perfect ankle crop for my (petite 5 ft. 4in frame). Usually when I have something to do last minute, I like to slap these on and go on with my day. If you pair them with a cute top, a blazer and heels, you'll look as if you spent hours working on your outfit (don't worry, your secret's safe with me!). Great denim is something that every girl should have in their closet, don't be afraid to try different colors or even prints! Possibilities are endless.

How do you style your favorite jeans?

What's the perfect potion for a girl to feel chic and polished during the holidays? It's most definitely freshly painted nails! Essie has been one of my all-time favorite nail polish brands for as long as I can remember. Aside from the fact that they have an endless array of gorgeous colors, they also have a long-lasting, chip-free solution that keeps my mani looking fresh wayyy longer. Their new winter collection features colors that are holiday party perfect! Whether you need the perfect purple shade for thanksgiving with the fam, a sassy red for your holiday office party, a classic nude for christmas shopping, or a trendy shade of blue to ring in the new year! These six colors are great for any special event you might be attending this season and they're sure to have you feeling extra glamorous. My favorite color from this collection was definitely 'Ring in the Bling!' It's a beautiful shade of ruby red with an elegant golden shimmer -- the perfect color for fiancĂ© and I's annual christmas party! 

Do you love to make your nails match your outfit as much as I do? Which shade is your favorite!?

Sunshine, water sports, slumber parties, and lots of time to lounge on the beach with girlfriends makes for the perfect fall weekend getaway! And that's just what my trip to South Seas Island Resort with JockeyⓇ delivered. A few weeks ago, some of my favorite blogger babes and I grabbed a flight to the dreamy, sun soaked, island of Captiva, Florida.

When it comes to traveling, I often look for a destination that offers lots of fun activities without having to drive long distances to enjoy them. South Seas fit the bill perfectly. Upon check-in, we were given our own personal golf carts which made getting around the island a breeze. We spent the morning playing tennis in chic JockeyⓇ workout gear. I appreciated the extra support my top gave me, which helped me focus on my workout and not a possible "wardrobe malfunction." I also loved the feminine pattern on it. I mean, why not inject a bit of personal style into your workout clothes too? My JockeyⓇ capris were also great. I really liked the open side slits and the wicking material, which helped keep me cool despite the scorching hot temperatures.

We spent our afternoons lounging on the poolside and zipping across the ocean on jet skis. Our nights consisted of listening to the pitter patter of rainfall at a girls-night-in slumber party. Our JockeyⓇ PJ's kept us stylish and cozy - perfect for a pillow fight!

This trip reminded me why I can always count on JockeyⓇ. They're an iconic, all-American brand that offers premium clothing at a great price. If you're looking for activewear, PJ's or athleisure, Jockey's got your back!

Pink In Pasadena

Top: Lulus (similar here and here), Skirt: Guess (similar here and here) , Coat: Forever 21 (old) (similar), Shoes: J Crew (similar), Bag: Senreve, Earrings: Baublebar

 I've always been a girly girl at heart. I love getting dressed up, putting on my makeup, and reaching for the perfect outfit in my closet. I like messing around with colors every now and then, but nothing makes a gal feel girly the way pink does, am I right, ladies? It’s a color that you can wear all year round and always feel feminine in. Luckily, fall in California isn’t as cold as other places, so I was happy to pair my pink cropped sweater with this chic silver skirt. Just in case it got a little chilly, I also wore my blue and gray plaid coat to stay warm. To add a little more pink to my look, I wore these lovely dangle earrings along with my silver heels and Senreve purse.

Are you into pink as much as I am? I'd love to know!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Beauty Must Have: Exuviance

In Collaboration with Exuviance
 When I think about my skin and how much I put it through, I feel so grateful that it's still intact! I'm serious! Between travel, heavy (photoshoot) makeup, and testing out new products constantly, it's a wonder that I'm able to maintain any kind glow. But any beauty lover knows that behind every perfect skin day are products that are working hard to get you there. In this case, that product is my new Exuviance Bionic Oxygen Facial. I've been using this product for the past 3 weeks and it has helped me to reveal my most flawless complexion ever! Three times a week I smooth an even layer on and wait for five minutes. It gets frothy and then disappears - taking all of my dull skin with it. What I'm left with is a radiant glow (and a little extra pep in my step!). 

If you're stuck in a beauty rut I strongly urge you to try this product! You won't regret it. 

I would love to hear what your beauty favorites are! 

Thanks for coming to my blog!
