Beauty: Dior Addict Lip Gloss


For years I have been a huge fan of Dior cosmetics. Designers going into the cosmetic world is always risky especially with the price point that they are. Dior is one of those brands that has yet to let me down. I have tried just about every type of product from Dior such as BB cream to blush to highlighters and even mascara…however for some odd reason I never thought about picking up a lip gloss until recently. What I was waiting for I have no idea because these lip glosses are fantastic. The formula is amazing…comfortable and not sticky on the lips, not scented (huge plus) and very long lasting. For someone who is not a huge fan of having anything but lip balm on their lips…this is a huge hit! I also adore the color…#363 Dormeuse. And the packaging is gorgeous! Let’s be honest…what girl doesn’t love a beautifully package beauty product!!!

Travel: The Tenaya Lodge/Ahwahee Hotel

Welcome back! This week we will be visiting the Tenaya Lodge!

image image image image image image image image image
If you are going to visit Yosemite and don’t want to camp, there are two great hotel alternatives. The Ahwahnee is inside the park and The Tenaya Lodge is about 40 minutes away in Fish Camp. They are both luxurious. Nature lovers who hike, bike, love rock climbing, swim, skating, dining etc. will be in heaven. The views of Yosemite Falls, Half Dome, and Glacier Point will take your breath away. There is transportation all over the Valley Floor. There are other hotels like the Wawona Hotel and the Yosemite Lodge but they are far less luxurious and cheaper. Finding a hotel room is not easy. They are booked often year around. Book far ahead of time and let me know how you liked it. Enjoy!

Book Reviews: Going Off Script by Giuliana Rancic

If you have been wanting a great read to kick off your summer…or vacation…this one should be at the top of your list! I couldn’t put this book down. I was shocked at home honest and real she was throughout the entire book. I must admit I was never the biggest fan of hers…as I really never watched her shows…but this book has made me a fan for life. I love her spirit and outlook on life. There is something to be said about having a woman like this in Hollywood. Truly commendable.

Fashion: ASOS Online

The older I get the more I have enjoyed shopping online. I am a bit impatient when it comes to waiting for things in the mail but there is something to be said for taking your time scrolling through items in the comfort of your own home. I have found some amazing pieces online and hope to find many more in the future. Years ago I heard about ASOS and was pleasantly surprised at how much I loved their clothes. ASOS is a brand in the UK and is a bit like Zara and H&M mixed together. Great pieces both trendy and staples with great prices. The shipping to the US was free and fast which was a huge plus for me. Even though some of the items seemed a bit different in person the return process was simple and quick. If you are up for trying something new I highly suggest you give ASOS a look! Let me know if you go ahead and process an order!

Beauty: Chanel CC Cream Complete Correction Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 25

image1-2I am absolutely in love with this product. I am a huge fan/lover of CC and BB creams. surprisingly even though my skin is fair it is still extremely hard to match my skin tone to a CC or BB cream. I stopped by my local Chanel counter and inquired if they had this CC Cream in stock. I lucked out as it just arrived that day. The nice sales associate asked if I wanted to be matched and quickly went to look for the lightest shade. Even though Chanel doesn’t have a wide range of colors, I was able to just get away with Chanel 20. Chanel 20 mixed with my CC Cream from Giorgio Armani and magically I have the perfect coverage and perfect shade. If you can find a true match with this Chanel CC cream I definitely think its worth the price. Coming in at $55 you want this product to be perfect and worth the money. I truly believe it is.

Travel: Monterey Plaza Hotel

This week we will be staying at the Monterey Plaza Hotel! I hope you enjoy!

image image image image image

The Monterey Plaza Hotel has got to be at the top of my list of favorites. It is a fantastic first class hotel with an amazing location overlooking the ocean. It is in walking distance of the beach, where you can rent kayaks, shop at Cannery Row, eat at great restaurants and best of all it is in walking distance to the famous Monterey Bay Aquarium. The hotel has new spa and fitness facilities and their restaurant called Schooners is great. They also have a bar/lounge with live music on the weekends. My advice is if you are going to stay there splurge on a spacious ocean view room with a balcony. From the balcony you can see and hear sea lions and otters. I love otters so I got my husband to take a kayak so I could take photos of the otters up close. You are not allowed to get too close though to my chagrin. Be sure to rent a car and venture into Carmel and the 17 mile drive. If you have more time go a bit past Carmel to Point Lobos State Park. It’s all gorgeous! The best weather months to go is September and October. Other months can be foggy and cold.
If you go please let me know how you liked it.

Fashion: Fendi Bag Bugs

Purses are one of my biggest passions. Over the years I have dabbled in just about every designer brand there is. A big trend amongst high-end designers are bag charms. I have never really been a huge fan of them as I much prefer the bag to shine on its own and prefer to put my money towards another bag instead. However…Fendi released the bag bugs a little over a year ago. My original thought when they were released was how hideous they were. As time¬†went on…they started to grow on me. I prefer some over others but definitely think it’s a cute addition to any bag. I however can’t seem to pull the plug on these guys due to their price point.
