IG Favorites roundup…

Hey friends,

I am working on bringing back Friday favorites post. I’ll try and get better at actually getting them up on a Friday! I’ve posted a couple pics of some of my favorite things on Instagram all week and will add them all to this post with links on where to buy. I think this will be a fun way of showing more content throughout the week instead of waiting for each blog post. Let me know what you think?!?!?

Smith and Cult polish  This was introduced to me by a blogger I have been following and loving, Visions of Vogue. She does a phenomenal job at bringing safer beauty products (along with fashion and travel). I have been working hard to slowly cut out the chemical in the house and have not realized how bad nail polish is. I try and bring my own polish to the salon with me when I go, cause I’ve learned the polish is one of the most germ containing thing in the salon!! Yikes!! I never thought about all the chemicals in polish. Smith and Cult are 9free which means it’s Dibutyl phthalate-free; toluene-free; formaldehyde-free; formaldehyde resin-free; camphor-free; ethyl tosylamide-free; xylene-free; triphenyl phosphate-free! It’s the winner of Allure magazine’s ‘Best of Beauty’ award for Best Sheer Neutral Nail Polish shade Ghost and made in the USA! I ordered mine from Nordstrom and have become addicted. It’s a beautiful bottle and great to display. My polish lasted one week chip free!

I cannot rave enough about these Steven by Steve Madden Grady sandals.  I scored them at DSW which is having a 20% off sale until 7/10 with code YAYDAYS!! Plus a free tote with purchase too! Code YAYTOTES!! I just ordered another color too. They are similar to the Steven by Steve Madden greece slides that go for $90. Great thing is this pair is affordable for under $50!!

This fun American Flag One Piece is from Target and under $40!! It runs small so order a size up… it’s cheeky but perfect for summer parties and BBQ’s! I also scored these cute Sugarfix earrings for only $12.99. They are a bit heavier and take some getting used to if you’re not used to wearing heavier dangle earrings.

Uncle Vals Gin! I am a gin lover and share this love with my sis in law. She and I both share a love for “salad” type cocktails! Uncle Vals is a botanical gin that is so smooth its dangerous. You can get it a Total Wine. This fun summer cocktail i created is easy to amke and delish!

  1. muddle 3-4 whole strawberries
  2. add an ounce of fresh lemon juice
  3. 2 tbs of simple syrup (or agave nectar)
  4. 2 oz of gin
  5. shake with ice, strain and serve garnished with a strawberry. I sometimes add a splash of prosecco for some yummy bubbles!!

 

Thats this weeks roundup… working on some more fun favorites for you next week!

ps,

dani
