lip color favorites


{ MAC: Candy Yum -Yum, Syrup, Rebel, Heroine } { Eos: Strawberry } {Stila: Fiore ,Amore, Fiery} { Butter London LIPPY: Dahling & Queen Vic}
Lately, I have had a fetish with lip colors and usually I will let y’all know the colors I am wearing when I post an outfit. This time I figured I’d let y’all know what lipsticks are in my makeup bag! I use all MAC makeup including their lipstick! At first, I thought it was crazy to pay $16+ for a tube but it was totally worth it! Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick is amazing and actually does last a long time! When I’m in the mood for a gloss I use Butter London LIPPY and for just a chapstick I love Eos!
In the fall, I wore MAC’s Rebel & Heroine and Stila’s Amore & Fiery a ton! I couldn’t get enough of them! But now that it’s finally Spring MAC’s Candy Yum -Yum is my new obsession. It makes me feel so retro and bright! I also love Stila’s Fiore for a hotter pink and an all day wear! For a subtle everyday color and summertime favorite I use MAC’s Syrup! I also love Eos Strawberry, or one of the LIPPY colors if I’m in a glossy mood!

Are you fan of any lip colors I don’t know about? If so please share, I love new colors ūüôā

Finishing up Spring Break back home in Vero Beach, FL! I can’t believe all the weird weather we had, but luckily today was nice enough to wear shorts again! I love this Kate Spade top, I have been waiting to wear it and today was perfect! I’ll be back in my blogging routine next week ūüôā Be on the look out for some fun new things!

Scallops are the elegant version of chevron or zig zags. This spring, I am seeing scallops…ALOT. It’s also one of my favorite¬†shaped¬†seashells to find on the beach (hence Shotguns & Seashells).¬†¬†I can’t stop drooling over this bikini or the cobalt blue sandals. My mind is ready for sunshine and shorts sleeves! Being home in Vero Beach for Spring Break is making¬†me want summer to ¬†hurry up and be here already so I can wear all of these cute scalloped trends.

Susana Monaco¬†(top) is one of my hands down favorite designers, EVER. Her pieces are classic and look great on everyone..I have about 5 white tops by her that I pair with everything. Lately, I’ve had a thing for pants though..especially flowy ones. The good thing about flowy pants is that you don’t have to jump around trying to fit into them like you would a tight pair. I also love patterns and I think this aztec print is awesome and is a very versatile print to wear year round wear!

spring break must haves

I am in love with each one of these springy items but the one thing I left out are a pair of cowboy boots. They just weren’t going with the theme but I will be in them more than I will be in a bikini! For Spring Break I’m headed home (actually I’m already home, I started my trip early) and all I plan on doing is relaxing, tanning, blogging and spending lots of time with my horse, Scout! Day 1 consisted of a bad sunburn, macaroons, and some much needed Scout time! For a better look at what I am doing follow me on Instagram!



nude + green

To me, a classic look stands out more than one that screams for attention. This nude vegan leather top gave me the right amount of simplicity but still says I have good taste! ¬†And once again, another green item to add in my closet, and of course, it’s ¬†Gigi New York!

Hope y’all are enjoying my new set up!



p.s. I know… I need a tan….

It’s time for me to start preparing for Spring Break, and if you haven’t noticed I have a thing for green bags! I’ve been using Jergen’s Natural Glow every other day to build up my tan and it really does work, I’m not lying! Mac’s Candy Yum Yum lipstick is a must pink for spring, and will be on my lips! I will also be wearing Essie Blanc on my fingers and Bikini So Teeny on my toes, with a great pair of wedges or sandals!
Happy Spring Break Season!
