I'm Back!

Hi everyone! I apologize for the sporadic posting and promise that I'm back for good now. Vacation is officially over. Because I haven't posted in a while, I figured I'd do a kind of hodge podge post of things that are interesting me right now. I would love to hear your comments and hear about what you guys would enjoy reading about. Let me know - it's always helpful to get feedback from my lovely and loyal readers!

On the shopping front...

+My roommate, Morgan, recently purchased these adorable Vince wedges that I may need to pick up, as well... Told you guys mules are in - I've seen them everywhere! These will literally go with everything this spring and summer. 



+Hoping to try out the matching skirt and crop top combo trend this spring and I think this BB Dakota outfit might be the perfect one for me. It would also look really good with my new Vince wedges I will have to get...



+My good friend, Cristine, has the cutest clothes and always looks amazing and she says she is constantly shopping at Aritizia. She was almost offended when I told her that I had never heard of the store. Originally opened as a single boutique in Vancouver, Aritizia has expanded to include two huge NYC stores (one in Soho and one in midtown). I went today and I had to leave before my credit card melted. NYC friends, check it out. 

+Be honest, do I need this baby blue Celine perfection?!



On the beauty front...

+A friend asked me to recommend a self tanner and I realized I hadn't recommended my all-time favorite self-tanner to you guys! Xen tan is the absolute, number one, hands down best. It comes out more of a brown/green color instead of the orange that most self tanners do and it isn't streaky, doesn't get on clothes and sheets and doesn't smell like self tanner (aka bad). For my face, I like Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pads. They exfoliate and give a great color. 




+I purchased Living Proof's Perfect Hair Day shampoo at Sephora the other day and I'm not going to say my hair looked good for five days because that would insinuate I didn't wash my hair for said amount but let's just say it's the best shampoo I've used in a while. By far. Would Jennifer Aniston invest in a company that didn't promise your best hair?? I think not. 



+I recently did a Spring Nails post that was a big hit and wanted to add one more color that is fantastic. I am usually an Essie girl but when I was in North Carolina for the week, the nail salon only had OPI. I tried "Kiss Me on My Tulips" and fell in love. I don't usually go for hot pinks but this color is fun and perfect for spring. What colors are you guys wearing? 


On the health front...

+If you're really into spinning, check out these new Peloton bikes. May be worth investing in one. Truth be told, I'm desperate to get one...



+Do you guys read WellandGoodNYC? You should.

+I stumbled upon this article on Mail Online (my all time favorite site) that talks about a bracelet that is being developed that can automatically track calories you consume. Sounds a bit too good to be true but if it's not it will be an unbelievable dieting tool. Oh, that pasta I want is 1000 calories a bite? I may have a little less than originally planned!

I promise posts will be back to normal from now on (a post every week day) and I hope you're ready for a few OOTD's (outfit of the day) coming up. 

Happy Tuesday!
