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 !

Here Ye, Here Ye: School Is Back In Session

“Let today be the start to something new.”

I have always been the one who loved back to school shopping from new clothes to new shoes, a fresh box of crayola crayons and everything in between. I may be out of school now, but back to school shopping is still something I love and participate in. I still reward myself with back to school goodies in September. So I thought I would share with y’all my favorite back to school must have essentials. Here’s to an amazing new school year !

  3. School supplies ( Target, Ban.do, Paper Source, Greenroom, Crayola,
  4. A fun water bottle with flare ( S’ip by Swell from Target )

Three Day Rule’s Night of Beauty at Viceroy Santa Monica

“Glamour is a state of mind.”

IMG_9156

A little bit about Three Day Rule, who invited me to the fantastic ‘Night of Beauty’ event, they got started around 10 years ago and are now in 8 different cities. Three Day Rule’s goal is to create a much, more enjoyable, stress free dating experience. I look at TDR as a traditional yet modern way of dating without an app, which I love.

It is more of a personal way of dating in that the matchmakers go on the first dates asking all the uncomfortable questions for their clients. To me it is like your friend is weeding out the ones that are not right for you. Another fun aspect of TDR is that if you meet a matchmaker you can also become a match, which means if they have a client that they think you should meet they will make the setup for you 🙂 Simply love this idea ! Go check out, Three Day Rule !

Now back to TDR’s 10th Annual Night of Beauty Event on June 12th. This beautiful event was hosted at the spectacular Viceroy Santa Monica (definitely having a staycation here). It was the perfect evening for an amazing event. Three Day Rule, Gilt City and Match teamed up for this annual event. Night of Beauty consisted of complimentary beauty, hair, nail touch-ups, pampering and tons of shopping with beGlammed (who did my makeup), Nail Garden (added the beautiful glitter to my mani), Cristophe Salon (William gave me my sexy beach waves), Toms (got my new shades, obsessed and for a great cause), Sprinkles Cupcakes (of course I had a cupcake & a cookie), Kendra Scott, Soul Cycle, Trunk Club, Club Pilates (excited to try), SUJA Juice (obsessed), Mai Couture (picked up amazing blush blot sheets), Skin Owl and many more amazing brands were present.

I not only got to enjoy a glamorous event while getting pampered (one of my favorite things), I also met a lot of amazing new people, which included Alisa, a matchmaker at TDR. Alisa went even more in depth about TDR and was kind enough to be my photographer for the evening.

After this beautiful event by the Viceroy Santa Monica pool, there was a singles mixer event at the bar. I sadly couldn’t’ stay, but I am positive that was a fun, successful mixer. I truly had an amazing time at TDR’s 10th Annual Night of Beauty Event and can’t wait for next year’s.

If you ever have a chance to attend a Three Day Rule event, I highly recommend it. Even if you aren’t single, they are perfect events to go with friends and meet new people.

If you are single and looking for a match, hit up Alisa at Three Day Rule. I ended up meeting with Alisa a week after the event for coffee and so excited to see who she matches me with !

Thank you again for inviting me!

In Partnership with Cube Appeal : On the Go Must Haves For Your Purse

The struggle to not overload one’s purse with knick knacks for fear of needing is very much an everyday thing. So I thought to help you all out and myself breakdown the essentials to have a lighter purse for everyday while also not feeling like anything was forgotten.

Now where to start? We are always on the go and need something to always keep us connected to work, family and friends, which is our phones ( also in the purse). To keep this going, we need the first essential of a portable battery charger. A portable charger allows you to stay connected while also being able to be on the go. It is an essential that will allow you to relax knowing you won’t lose that connection. I prefer this one at the moment by iFrogz (love the pop of pink; not pictured do to that my phone was charging 😉 ), but Target and other retailers have all kinds to fulfill your needs of portable charging.

We got the charge covered now to a bit of sparkle. When on the go a lot, there may not be time to stop and get a manicure, which can be a bummer. Fear not, I have the perfect mani essentials for your purse. This mini set & polish remover by Dazzle Dry (dries in 5 minutes and appears like gel polish), cuticle cream by Lush (smells great too) and a mini mani kit like this one I have (similiar ones can be found at TJ Maxx, Target and any beauty store) . What makes them all great go must haves to throw in the purse is they are a perfect size to not overload your favorite on the go purse.

Playing off beauty essentials, lip care is always on my mind. My go to product to keep my lips shiny and moisturized has always been rosebud salve since high school. It is a size that is purse perfect that can be found at Sephora or Urban Outfitters, so always a big yes,please !!

The next few on the go essentials for me are a great group because they bring the zen to my purse and on the go routine so I hope they do for you all. It is a pocket notepad and pen to write when inspired like these form Sidecca and Paper Source paired with my favorite Chanel sunnies and my headphones to rock out to music while writing. Everyone’s zen musts are different so hope these help inspire yours.

When on the go be sure to take a few moments to stop and focus on yourself and check in to make sure all is good 🙂 Whether it is meditating in the sunshine or reading a great fashion magazine like Glamour or Cosmo (both musts for me) .

Okay, back to the must haves! The first is almonds (like these great ones from Trader Joe’s), which are a healthy pick me up snacks that I need to pack on a more regular basis. The second /final one is a set of business cards (mine are from Etsy that are carried in a metallic case from Container Store by Poppin). They are a must because you never know who you will run into. Having both almonds and business cards have come in handy (thanks to all who suggested having both).

Music at a Festival…Brings a Flock Together

“There’s nothing like a music festival. People are ready to have a good time. I don’t think anyone comes to a festival going, “I’m gonna be a complete bummer today.” ~ Gary Clark, Jr.

Going to make this short and sweet because I don’t want you all to miss out on all the festival fun. Every year music festivals seem to get bigger and bigger, a lot of it is because music is universal. Music continues and will continue to bring people together.

Whether you are off to Weekend #2 of Coachella, Stage Coach or a hidden gem I haven’t heard of, but would love, here are some twists and treats on festival fashions. Remember, festivals are your time to go all out and have fun with your fashion !

Things I am Loving for the Month of Love

When the month of February roles around it gets me to thinking, what things I am loving right now.

IMG_4700

First, I am really loving the idea of DIYing gifts for Valentine’s Day from date ideas in a jar to homemade treats to a VDay arrangment to painted canvases for decor.

Second, I am really loving all things Valentine’s Day themed anything including this Wildfox “Be Mine” Sleep Mask(love it all year).

IMG_4713

Third, I am really loving having an home spa/pamper seesion either with girlfriends, my mom and sister for Galentine’s Day or a day of making self love a priority.

IMG_466012642547_948208451934254_8354347274366771448_n

Fourth, I am really loving Tejava all day everyday. It is an all natural, amazing iced tea that brightens up any Galentine’s Day brunch to dinner with loved ones to a day of reading magazines for VDay inspiration.

IMG_4137

Lastly, I am really loving celebrating and being present as often as I can with family and friends 🙂
