Yes Pleases of the Week

“Live your life as a series of obsessions.”

One of my favorite times of the week is here, my Yes Pleases. This week was another fun one to put together. Here we go to this week’s Yes Pleases !

Yes Please #1: Football Season

Football Season is back and already we are into week three. I am so excited for football to be back. I love the sport, the energy it brings, the food and of course supporting my Chicago Bears. Here’s to hoping for an awesome football season for DA Bears, always a Yes Please !

Yes Please #2: Slip On Mules

So I have been a fan of mules for awhile now and so excited to see the evolution of them. There are heels, faux fur, florals, metallics, nudes, neutrals and so many other amazing details and options. As mules continue to transform so do my outifits. I continue to say a big Yes Please to mules !

Yes Please #3: Eric & Jessie is Back on E!

Yay, Eric&Jessie is back on E! after being away for 3 years. It premiered a couple of weeks ago and episode 3 just aired. This show is happy, goofy, full of laughs and serious relationship goals. The show is a must watch and a big Yes Please !

Yes Please #4: Woven Pear Socks

Woven Pear has quickly become a part of my sock drawer ever since I picked up my first two pairs at a local boutique. They are cute, comfy and full of fabulous details (one being the cute woven pear) and love all the different choices. I recently was sent these amazing Ice Cream socks and Bison socks to feature, which is officially one of my favorite packages to get. They are another accessory that gives not only comfort, but that fun peekaboo pop to an ensemble. For me, Woven Pear is always a Yes Please !

Yes Please #5: Hask Hair Products

My hair is thick and there is a lot of it. I am always looking for great products that are paraben & sulfate free. I have fallen in love with Hask Hair ever since I first tried their shampoo, conditioner and dry shampoo (my fave). I have been wanting to try all their products for awhile so I was overjoyed when Hask Hair themselves sent me all their amazing products. I was overwhelmed with joy and excitement to try them all. Hask Hair is hair happiness for me and always a Yes Please !

Yes Pleases for Fall

“Don’t Be Into Trends. Don’t Make Fashion Own You, But You Decide What You Are.” ~ Gianni Versace

I took a breather these last few weeks from writing because it was just one of those times in life when I needed one. I have realized that it is okay to take a break and definitely needed. I am back and this week’s Yes Pleases are here ! This week’s Yes Pleases are all about Fall trends that I am loving. Fall trends are one of my favorite things.

Here’s to Fall being just around the corner and to all the fun trends to come ! Yes Pleases, here we go !

Yes Please #1: Booties with Some Flare

I am a lover of booties for sure. What I am really loving about booties this Fall is that added flare. They are just about having fun with your Fall outfit, which I am all for. The added detail of fringe, bright colors, metallics, which all give a pair of booties an extra pop. A continued Yes Please to that extra pop to those booties 😉 !

Yes Please #2: Moody Florals

I am all about florals throughout the fashion seasons. I am loving the twists on florals that Fall trends bring to them. The twist Fall is bringing to the floral trend is deep, dark colors or moody florals as they are calling it. It gives the traditional florals a unique flare and twist, which is fantastic, fabulous and a big Fall Yes Please !

Yes Please #3: Pale Pink

Pale pink is becoming my new favorite color. I am loving that it is a big trend for Fall and that I just so happen to have a bunch of it in my closet already. It is a color that goes with everything and perfect for any occasion So an absolute Yes Please to all things pale pink for Fall and beyond.

Yes Please #4: Animal Print

Yes, animal print is back ! Animal print is always so fun to include in my ensembles when I can. I love that it is back everywhere now, but in the most tasteful ways. I love everything from subtle accessories to a chic all over pants and everything in between. There is just something about animal print that brings out my inner girl boss and makes me say Yes Please !

Yes Please #5: Nail Art

Nail art has always been one of my favorite things ever since I got my first mani as well as one of my first gifts with nail goodies. It is another extension of my creativity. I am really loving the Fall nail art trends from black accents (seen below) to reverse french mani to bright colors to 3D design. They all have my big Yes Please !

*For more nail inspiration art, be sure to Harper’s Bazaar !

These definitely are not all my favorite trends, but are the ones that stand out. Here are a few of my honorable mentions: 80s, 90s, and Sheer Layering !

Thank you again for coming along for this week’s Yes Please journey ! Stay tuned for next week !

Also, I will definitely be rocking my sports wear !

Yes Pleases of the Week

“They call it obssession, but I prefer the word love.”

Every week I seem to find new things that I just love, peak my interest, obsessed with, have to have or all of the above. I love finding out about new products, restaurants and more, which is why I am always saying, “Yes Please.” This is where my Yes Please series came to be awhile ago and I am officially relaunching it this week, yay ! I will continue to be sharing with y’all my Yes Pleases each week. I hope y’all enjoy and let’s kick this first one off 🙂 !

Yes Please #1: Tejava Iced Tea

It is a tea I have been obsessed with for awhile. It is refreshing, delicious as well as all 100% all natural, micro brewed and ready to drink iced tea. Hope y’all love it like I do 🙂 Tejava Iced Tea can be found at Target, Whole Foods Market and many of your local spots.

Yes Please #2: Anthony Rizzo in the Leadoff Spot

Ever since Anthony Rizzo of the Chicago Cubs got moved to the leadoff spot he has killed it. He is in a 12 game hitting streak(as I type that just changed to a 13 game hitting streak with a homer) that includes his first inning production has been spectacular. Anthony has 2 homers, a walk, a single and a double, which tells me he has staying power at leadoff. Go Cubs Go !

*Stats are from Chicago Sun-Times

Yes Please #3: Formula 10.0.6 Skin-Clarifying Mud Mask

I just found out about Formula 10.0.6 recently. Let me tell you I am obsessed with this mask and can’t wait to try their other amazing products. A handful of the reasons why are because it smells great, easily accesible at Target or Ulta, affordable and most importantly it doesn’t irritate my extremely sensitive skin. Be sure to check this mask out and let me know what y’all think.

Yes Please #4: Sinful Colors Nail Polish

Sinful Colors has an array of options for nail polish, if I had the space I would definitely have them all. They are so fun, fabulous and fit with any ensemble or occasion. I have noticed too my Sinful Colors manis and pedis always lasts a long time (don’t forget a top coat every other day, helps it last longer).

Yes Please #5: Iced Green Matcha like this one from Lavender & Honey Espresso Bar

An Iced Green Matcha not only creates a great Instagram moment, but it is refreshingly delicious especially in this summer heat and if y’all are into green tea like I am 🙂 If you aren’t into green tea, I suggest tasting a friends before ordering your own. It as a slight bitter taste, but doesn’t have as intense of one like regular green tea, but the whole milk helps to add some sweetness (not too sweet). A plus when ordering an Iced Green Matcha is that matcha is great to get some of your favorite antioxidants. Let me know what are some of your iced drinks 🙂

These are my Yes Pleases for this week, stay tuned for next week’s Yes Pleases !

A Getaway to Ventura with my Dad : A Restart to a Long Family Tradition

 

IMG_5063

Recently I took a vacation to Ventura with my awesome dad to recharge our batteries with a relaxing few days. We drove up the coast, rocked out to music and ate and dranks some great snacks (Boom Chicka Pop and Tejava Iced Tea). Our first stop was up to Ojai (not to far north of Ventura) for a delicious lunch and conversation. Of course I had to stop my dad to take some pictures, thanks again! We then enjoyed the surroundings of beautiful Ojai by exploring on foot.

It was an amazing, peaceful start to our bonding and relaxing trip. Now it was time to check into our beautiful hotel, Crowne Plaza Ventura Beach . It is officially one of my favorite hotels. Here are the reasons why: right near the beach, great views, amazing room, relaxing pool that looks at the ocean and a great staff.

We were settled in relaxing, snacking, coloring and catching up on sports (something my dad and I will always love sharing together).

Before dinner it was time for a relaxing moment by the pool and bust out my swimwear from Target to go along with my coverup by Helmut Lang compliments of Attire LA (they were kind enought to lend me pieces for my amazing trip). A must have was my 2 Penny Blue bag along with the current Glamour magazine and of course my dad brought baseball magazines to prepare for the upcoming baseball season. It was so fantastic to relax in the sun and dip my toes in the water while looking at the ocean.

It was now happy hour and dinner time at the fabulous Embassy Suites in Oxnard and Lure Fish House in downtown Ventura. Now when I tell you this is a must, it truly is a must. Amazing meal for us both, delicious. A walk after dinner was the perfect end to a perfect first day of vacation.

After breakfast in downtown Ventura, it was activity time so we decided on the Outlets in Camarillo because they have an awesome movie theatre. Of course we stopped in a few shops and found some fun stuff. The movie was starting, which was Logan ( Hugh Jackman’s last one) and let me tell you it was simply fantastic and riveting. My dad and I both loved it.

Movies were great and it was happy hour time now. My dad and mom have explored some great wineries so we stopped at one of them, 4 Brix Winery, which is officially always on my list when I am in the area. Wine was spectacular, cheese plate was savory & sweet , convo was fun and loved their amazing event space with the beautiful wine barrels. You will want to put this winery on your list.

What came next on this Ventura adventure? Trying a new spot that my friend suggested, Cork (only had been open four months and know it will be there for a long time). My dad and I loved everything about it from the fantastic wine to the service and atmosphere. The food also looked and smelled amazing and can’t wait to try it next time 🙂

It was going from a beautiful day to a majestic night. With a day filled of beauty and fun, another favorite of mine, a nap, was for sure needed. Dinner duds were now on and we were ready for an amazing steak dinner at Cafe Zack. Also, if you are a non-meat eater, they offer so many other amazing dishes for you to enjoy 🙂 We ended dinner with a decadent chocolate dessert, outstanding ! It was another end to an amazing day.

The third and final day to a great vacation was spent having a great breakfast at the hotel and enjoying the beautiful view one last time. Ventura was an amazing vacation with my dad and the getaway we needed, definitely will be back to explore even more again soon.

What are some of your favorite vacation spots ? Can’t wait to hear and add to my must list and be sure to tag me on Instagram (@livelaughstyle) when you do !
