Vanilla Sky...

I am the polar opposite of a product junkie and very rarely stray from my normal products to purchase something new. I made an exception last week and am so glad that I did, I bought this "healthy" deodorant from LAVANILA at Sephora and am LOVING it! I've been looking for an alternative to aluminum deodorants and have been unsatisfied with other brands until this one. There are five vanilla based scents that are all amazing, I really wanted the vanilla coconut but it was out of stock at my Sephora so I went with the passion fruit instead. If you are looking for a "healthy" deodorant I really recommend trying this one out, the price is a bit high at $18 but I think it's worth every penny.

Fun in the Sun...

My boyfriend and I took advantage of a beautiful sunny day, grabbed our Starbucks and drove off to Malibu. There's nothing better than relaxing on the beach, just the smallest amount of time instantly calms me and makes the world seem a bit less chaotic. I can't wait for summer so I can venture to the beach more often and even try out a few new ones I haven't had a chance to visit yet like El Matador.

Blu Moon, I Saw You Standing Alone...

This morning I ventured out to the Planet Blue sale in Santa Monica and was glad that I did. Everything in the store is currently 75% off and pieces from their own line, Blu Moon are $35. I was surprised not to see a frenzy when I arrived and was able to score some really good tops. I already have one of the Aphrodite tops in cotton and love it so much how could I resist another in rayon?

If you are in the area I would definitly suggest going tomorrow for the last day of the sale,they open bright and early at 9:00am. If you're wondering what the selection will be the second day, don't worry the girls told me they are putting out new merchandise for tomorrow so the selection should still be good.

Happy Shopping!

All About Missoni...

I wasn't lying about my Missoni infatuation, case in point...this package that arrived today. I've regretted not snagging this pair of sneakers since spring 2010 when Missoni and Converse teamed up for the first time. Since then they've released four other styles but these have always held a spot in my heart. When my size popped up on eBay I knew they would be mine and now my closet is a little more complete with these inside.

Well the title says it all, I just found out about the Missoni x Target collaboration coming this Fall and am already freaking out. I've told you about my love for Missoni here and I cannot wait to see what sort of magic is coming from the talented Missoni clan. The collection is going to be massive with 400 items in all Target categories, mark your calendars it hits stores on September 13th.

Nightmare on 12th Street...

I went downtown to the 12th Street by Cynthia Vincent sample sale on Thursday before work and scored some goodies! I've been wanting this navajo print sweater since the moment I saw it because I practically lived in the older version all winter, needless to say I was thrilled to see it when I walked in. The black/white/neon sweater is a great lighter weight for summer and I loved the tribal print of the shirtdress which I'm planning on dressing down with stacks of jewelry and ankle boots so it doesn't look too, "ladies who lunch."

Happy Nails...

I'm currently obsessed with the way my nails turned out! It was a little gloomy on Sunday and I decided to paint my nails in bright colors rather than my usual go to, Chanel Black Pearl to brighten up my day. The blue is Essie Coat Azure and the pink is Essie Forget Me Nots. What's your nail color of choice right now?

It's Gucci Time...

I went to the flea market yesterday and thought I would share my favorite find of the day. In a HUGE pile of belts I somehow managed to uncover this gem, a 70's Gucci brass horse head belt. I love the way it's been aged to perfection and has a perfect patina that only 30+ years can do, the best part of all....the $2 price that came with it!

I'm Cuckoo For COCONUTS...

Back East I relied on coconut coffee from Dunkin Donuts for my daily caffeine fix and have totally missed it for the past two years. But low and behold Starbucks has answered my wishes for coconut coffee out West and my iced coffees have been tropically delicious all week. If you are a fan of coconut you need to try it out next time you go to Starbucks, you won't be disappointed!

You Gotta See It To Belize It...

Sorry for the lack of updates I've been super busy for the past month. Between visiting my grandparents, then going to Belize and trying to get caught up at home in the middle, but now I'm back and ready to blog!

I went to Ambergris Caye in Belize as a surprise to my sister who was already going with my dad and the look on her face was priceless when she saw me at the airport. I had such a great trip and Belize was so gorgeous in person, I don't know if I've ever seen a place where the water is so clear and blue. We spent most of our days driving around in a golf cart, eating amazing food and shopping at the same store everyday. By the end of our trip it felt like my sister and I slowly bought the entire island but I couldn't resist all the embroidered, knitted and brightly painted treasures we found. On our last day we ventured out to see some of the Mayan ruins at Lamanai, and were even greeted in the jungle by some monkeys which was such a cool end to the trip.
