Weekend Roundup: Naples: Part II



After a couple of days in Miami, we drove to Naples for the more "relaxing" part of our vacation. As usual, everything was absolutely beautiful, manicured and clean to perfection. We were able to relax despite the hot weather, and it was nice to be there during the off season with less crowds.

Weekend Roundup: Jacksonville, Miami and lots of IKEA : Part I



This weekend definitely felt like a whole bunch of crazy. It was my last day of work (after two years!), Kevin's birthday, our anniversary, and we planned on getting some work done at the new condo on Miami. I feel a little bit ragged after running around all weekend, but here is a peak at what I was up to.

Boxycharm May 2017 Unboxing and Review



Boxycharm is always my most consistently favorite box. It is $21 a month but the value is always high and there are always products that I can use. I will admit that last month was a bit lackluster, but I think this one definitely makes up for it.

Review: Girlfriend Collective Core Leggings





I don't think I I have ever bought anything because of a Facebook ad. Usually it's the land of mascara selling pyramid schemes and weird diet shakes. I placed the Girlfriend Collective leggings in this category when I first saw them. But then I read some reviews from real people and they were really positive. So I figured I too would get in on the action. Here are my thoughts.

October 2016 Boxycharm Review


I have to say that Boxycharm is probably my favorite subscription box. It is one of the more expensive ones at $21, but they always send products that I can actually use and that don't feel like weird rejects. Here is what was in this month's box.

New Fall and Winter Items



I've been trying very hard to be on a low-buy for makeup and beauty products recently, but with some trips and other exciting things, I just couldn't control myself. It's still pretty tame though. I did very well during black friday and the Christmas season though, I resisted buying anything. But here is a kind of overview of what new things I have been trying.

Review: Michael Kors Bedford Large Leather Zip Clutch and Ordering from Net-A-Porter



I recently got the iPhone 6 and knowing my lifestyle I also got an otterbox case for it. And then I was presented with huge problem as it was not only too big for my current wristlet but also too big for most wristlets for carrying iPhones. And I generally only carry a wristlet around. So I went on a mission to find one on sale at maybe Macy's or Nordstrom or something. I was looking at the Michael Kors/ Marc Jacobs/ Kate Spade price point. And nada nothing. Everything was either not the right size or way too expensive. And that I managed to find a "clutch" on Net-A-Porter. It was not on sale or anything and that made me cry a bit, but I bought it anyway. And here are my thoughts on it in case fellow giant phone cases people need one.
