Spring 2015 Trend: Jeweled Sandals

For spring, another fun trend that is gracing the retailers are jeweled sandals. These are such a fun and easy way to add a little polish and sparkle to an outfit. You can pair a jeweled sandal with a pretty floral maxi dress, or use it to dress up a simple tee and denim shorts. The possibilities are endless, making a pair of jeweled sandals a versatile piece to add to your wardrobe this season! All of these custom-picked sandals are under $100. I am loving the leopard print and mint floral pairs!

Drugstore Beauty: Sea Inspired Beauty for Less

When I was a wee little lassie, my favorite part of the day was bath time. I had a healthy obsession with mermaids (still do) and I had little toys called "Sea Wees" that were mermaids I could play with in the bath. My aunt had divine smelling bath salts that she would pour in the water that colored it turquoise and smelled fresh like the ocean. My mermaid friends and I would luxuriate in our "ocean spa" and I was happy as a clam. 

Recently I had major flashback moments when trying out the NEW Suave® Professionals Sea Mineral Infusion line, a spa inspired range of products infused with a blend of luxurious minerals from the sea. You know how scents can instantly take you back to a moment and you feel like you are there again? I was home in my own shower, but the amazing fragrance from the Suave® Professionals Sea Mineral Infusion Exfoliating Body Wash I was using transported me back to my mermaid ocean spa in an instant. I was hooked.


This exfoliating body wash is infused with dead sea salts to polish away impurities leaving skin soft and smelling divine. Proven to smooth skin as well as AHAVA® Dead Sea Mud Exfoliator, but at a fraction of the cost! I'm talking at least a $20 savings here.


Seeing as how I loved the exfoliating wash so much, I knew I had to try more products from the line. Enter the Suave Professionals® Sea Mineral Infusion Texturizing Sea Salt Spray. I have naturally wavy hair that I prefer to let air dry in the warmer months. I sprayed some of this on towel dried hair, to help create a loose, textured look with full bodied waves. I love that it leaves behind that subtle sea-inspired scent in my hair as well. This sea salt spray is salon proven to work as well as Bumble and bumble. Surf® Spray, again at a fraction of the cost.



I am so excited by this discovery of sea-inspired beauty that gives me the spa treatment all from the comfort of my own home. All I am missing are my mermaid friends to share it with! I know they definitely would approve. You can find the NEW Suave® Professionals Sea Mineral Infusion line on Amazon, at Target, or check here for your nearest location.

Spring Must Have: The Straw Tote!

Nothing says "I'm ready for some fun in the sun" quite like a good straw tote! It is definitely one of those classic items that you want to have in your closet. I picked out a few straw totes and bags with modern twists for added interest. A big tote is great for throwing all your beach, picnic and vacay essentials in, while a smaller straw clutch or purse adds texture to an evening or everyday outfit. Which is your favorite?
