Oh, hello!

A few weeks ago, I was asked to create a Chanel inspired look using a few classic jewels from Charish.com, a website where design lovers can buy and sell vintage furniture, decor, jewelry and accessories to one another.

For my look, I decided to put together a casual yet classic style that can go from an afternoon shopping to cocktails with friends. Since a great pair of jeans is my go-to staple and a shoe with a pop of color is a must, I intertwined  a few of my favorite things  and tied the look together with two classic pieces from Chanel — a quilted handbag and pearls.  I didn’t want to overdo the look, so I kept it simple, because a girl should be two things: classy and fabulous!

Enjoy! xoxo

 

 

3 DIY Ideas for Easter Brunch

With Easter Sunday quickly approaching and weekend brunch fresh on my mind, I scoured Pinterest for three ideas to turn a simple brunch into a fabulous fête.

With a DIY approach, I opted for ideas that included easy to put together stations leaving more time for the hostess to mingle instead of serve. Enjoy!

1. Mimosa Bar

You can’t go wrong with champagne! Grab your favorite bottle and pair it with orange, cranberry, peach and pineapple juice. To complete the cocktail {or mocktail} add a few bowls of sliced fruits for garnishes on the side.

2. Bagel Station

This station  is easy to setup! Just buy a box of bagels from your favorite shop, a few varieties of cream cheese,  and add a plate or two of your favorite proteins and vegetables. Your guest can grab and go or mingle while they smear!

3. Waffle Bar

Waffles are a great make-ahead finger food that can be served on a plate, skewer or attached to a cup of pure maple syrup.  Plus,they can double as a dessert, if served with a creamy hazelnut spread, whipped cream or even jelly!

Review: Adore Me

I was recently asked to try Adore Me, an online lingerie club based out of NYC that focuses on designer lingerie sets, swim suits, sleepwear and corsets at affordable prices. I was super excited for the opportunity to try out the brand and even more excited when I started looking at their products.

The ordering process was simple. When you first sign up, you are asked a few simple questions to help build your style profile, and from there you can choose from your showroom or browse the site for something that catches your eye.

I opted for sleepwear, since I thought it was a safe bet regarding size, and I am really happy I did. I ordered a super cute romper*, in small, that is extremely soft and comfortable. For the price ($39.99), the product was high quality and the fabric didn’t wrinkle, which is great for traveling.  Plus, it was really flattering. And, shipping was quick too.  So if you need something in a pinch, it’s worth a visit.

One other thing I likeed is their membership options.  If you become a VIP member, you are not committed to make a purchase every month.  You can skip without being charged and even put your account on vacation mode.

I was really happy with my experience and recommend checking out the website if you are looking for new lingerie, sleepwear and swim options.  If you are interested in checking out Adore Me, click here.  Enjoy!
