Happy Sunday!

I’m completely into fresh blooms, comfy shoes, good cup of tea, the list goes on…

Below are a few of my recent obsessions, things that I eat, wear and use almost every day.

1. Sole Society reversible bag. Super chic and goes with a lot of outfits since it has 2 different colors. It’s big enough for you to use it as a gym bag and it comes with a little pouch for makeup or accessories. I’ve been using it non-stop. I believe it’s on sale now:) It looks expensive yet it’s very affordable.

3. Jo Malone body creme and candle.

“English Pear and freesia” is one of my favorite scents. The body creme is rich and will last a long time. I like to use it as a base for my perfume- it makes it smell amazing and the smell lasts longer. You can also mix 2 fragrances for your own unique smell.

*The candle will fill your home with delicate fragrance within minutes and the scent will linger for a couple of days after lighting it.

4. Clarisonic is a game changer. Smoothens and clears your skin if you use it regularly. It removes makeup like nothing else. Use it once a day.

5.Lace up flats -I’ve been wearing them a lot. They are super comfortable and chic. I purchased black and nude. They literally look good with every outfit.

6. Fresh flowers. Enough said ( fish bowl from CB2 )

7. Coconut oil  – I can’t stress enough how wonderful this oil is. It’s perfect not only for cooking but as a moisturizer, hair mask ( mix it with honey and warm it up), cuticle help, scrub ( mix it with sea salt) etc.

There are plenty of articles on how you can use it. Do your research, my favorite is a hair mask, it does wonders!

8. Matcha green tea- green antioxidant and energy potion. Make it with almond milk-yum! You can buy it at your local Whole foods

9. Fruit bowls- one of my favorite things recently (there are plenty of recipes on Pinterest). Make them yourself or you can buy them at the local health food store. My favorite is a “Dragon bowl” from Raw Juice

10. CHANEL nail polish and a matte top coat-> my absolute favorite!  Worth the price and they last a long time.

4th of July inspiration

Hi,

4th of July is around the corner and for a lot of us Independence Day is one of our favorite holidays.

It’s hard not to get excited about  the BBQ’s on the beach, family time, hanging out with friends and of course the fireworks.

Since the 4th is still a couple days away, it’s the perfect time to get organized and creative, make home decorations, get groceries for all those red, white & blue treats and figure out what to wear.

Below we’re attaching a few photo inspirations for patriotic outfits, food to make and how to decorate your home etc. Even if  it’s using a red,white & blue tablecloth, a painted mason jar as a  utensil holder or even painting that old piece of furniture  red, white and blue, the possibilities are endless. Get creative this holiday and create the perfect background for all those selfies that we all know will end up on social media.

Stay safe, enjoy and…

Happy birthday America!!

Spring fling- florals

Hi Darlings,

This ones for the girls.
It’s all about florals—we’re in the middle of Spring, and we all know that the floral pattern is a way to go this season.
With all the different hues and fabrics, it’s a pop of color and a beautiful addition to every girl’s closet.
Even interior designers rely heavily on floral elements this Spring, like pillows, curtains, upholstery, etc.

Wherever you go, flowers and trees are blooming. It’s especially beautiful here in New York City, with flower stands on every corner and the blooming trees at Central Park—gorgeous!!

Try to be more playful with your wardrobe this season, and don’t be afraid of the colors and flowers. They’ll bring the feminine side to every outfit and beautiful color.
Don’t let anyone dull your sparkle!

Simple things

Every day, we surround ourselves  with people, animals, stories and things that make us feel good, that inspire us. That make us

smile.

For us, it’s a morning cup of a coffee with our loved ones, while sitting on the porch  …

Another day, it’s taking walks on the beach in search of the beach-glass.Sometimes it might be getting that  handbag or pair of shoes you’ve been dreaming about. Here’s the truth ; as a society we focus so much on work, that we end with little to no time  for simple pleasures.

Make sure you find even couple minutes a day to do what  makes you happy, to do what inspires you to keep going.

We wanted to share with you what inspire us, and what makes us happy.72489-f1fd17-320-320
