Friday Favorites 8.4

Happy Friday peeps!!! I’ve rounded up my favorites for this week and I’m so excited to share them with you.

1.  Bloomingdale’s frozen yogurt: Ok, as many of you have seen on my IG or Facebook my obsession for Bloomie’s frozen yogurt has been long and strong for YEARS. Let me explain why. It’s fat-free and has the best texture and creaminess of any frozen yogurt I have ever had, and my favorite part only one flavor a day. That’s right you have the choice of plain original frozen yogurt swirled with whatever the flavor of the day may be. My favorites are strawberry, coffee, and of course chocolate. Go treat yourself… you deserve it. The top floor of any Bloomingdale’s at their Forty Carrots Cafe!!


2.  Animal Kingdom on TNT:  As I think about my weekly favorites I want to share with you guys shows I am watching. This is currently on the air and season 2.  Now let me make it clear it’s not for those that can’t handle some action and definitely not family friendly. I can’t believe how much nudity and sexual content they can show on cable TV! But despite that, it’s really a great show. Suspenseful and worth watching. Some people say it’s  the surfer version of Sons of Anarchy ( I have never seen sons of anarchy so I can’t confirm that), but I look forward to it every Tuesday night! Set your DVR’s and give it a try.



3. Nordstrom Anniversary Sale favorites: I am sure you guys have seen, heard, and are sick of the Nsale advertising so let me start by saying, I’m not sponsored or endorsed to post about any of this. I truly think the Nsale is the BEST sale all year. Designers give great prices of things that typically I can’t afford the rest of the year. Some are still a splurge, but when compared to the original price the savings are unreal. Most importantly there are only 3 days left to shop. Sale ends August 6! Hurry up and grab what is left… and be prepared to shop the sale with me earlier next year!!

tb floral espadrilles

Tory Burch espadrilles. I have a pair already and love them. I wear them all the time. They do stretch out a bit but not bad so purchase true to size and if they’re a little tight, they’ll loosen up.

TB flats

Tory Burch Claire Ballerina Flat. I have been eying these for a while and couldn’t wait for them to go on sale. I purchased an 8 but needed to exchange for an 8.5. These are an amazing classic flat great for work and polished weekend looks. They have them in 3 colors and it took all of my restraint to not purchase the gold as well. I stuck with the black because everyone needs a classic black flat in their closet 😉


ASTR the Label satin ruffle romper. Guys this may be a top purchase. for me. It was under $50 and is so comfortable and fits great. I ordered a small and it’s TTS. It is flowy, flattering and looks great. Not to mention a good length for shorts. Awesome for summer and transitional into Fall. For those of my fellow Floridiansans its great all year round. You will see this up on the blog as a post soon so get ready!!

Clinique chubby sticks have been in my makeup bag for a while so when I saw this mini sampler kit I couldn’t say no. There are 6 wonderful colors. I’ve worn each one and honestly like them all! At only $25 they are a steal. They are smooth and light, have a great shine and the color lasts!! I couldn’t be happier with this kit.


BP cold shoulder button down shirt. This one I was wary about, but when I saw it in person and got to try it on for myself it confirmed my love. I am really into cold shoulder anything lately and I know the trend may not last long but at only $29.90 it’s worth it. The shirt is cotton and runs TTS. I ordered a small and its loose and fits great. They have it in gray too I just felt I could do more with the white!

That’s the round up for the week. I know it was very Nsale based, but with the sale ending, I wanted to show you guys all my faves while they were still available. Hope you enjoyed the post! Let me know what are your favorites for the week?! Happy Friday loves!

target shorts

These shorts have been on repeat this summer and I have purchased them in many colors. They are comfortable and at 5″ inseam they are an appropriate length. Can’t be repping those booty shorts anymore 😉 For those of you that are more petite and can afford to show off more leg, they have them in 3″ also! Don’t worry I got you covered!


I paired them with this yellow tank, also from Target. But they look great with a chambray shirt, white tee, or even navy!

Check ’em out…Cheers to styling on a budget!



Friday Favorites 7. 28

Hey guys,

I’ve decided to start a weekly favorites post to share with you things I’m crushing on this week. I think it will be a fun way for us to share products, fashion, and local activities together.  Some things you may have seen in previous posts, on my IG or my FB. These are things I want to highlight for the week, some of them have never been in a post. The point being, I’d love for you to comment and share your favorite things as well!

1.) TARGET JUMPER  –> Yes I am still obsessed with this jumpsuit/romper I can live in it. If you missed it on the blog I posted it for my Style on a Budget series. It’s from Target and only $30. The material is great and this summer I have been living in rompers, they’re just too easy and help keep cool!

2.) BREW DR. KOMBUCHA –> If any of you follow along on IG you have seen me post about Kombucha. I love it. I try to drink a bottle a day. It gives me a boost of energy, has a ton of health properties and tastes delicious! A favorite brand of mine is Brew Dr. I get mine from Fresh Market and normally on sale 😉 They have many flavors. My go to lately has been clear mind. It’s a mix of green tea, rosemary, peppermint, sage, dandelion, and probiotics.


3.) Kristin Cavallari Laurel Peep Toe Booties –> I have been obsessing over these booties for a year and never got them. Then they were out of stock everywhere and now they are part of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! I couldn’t have been happier to see the are only $99. They have 4 colors in stock: camel, gray, black, and nude. They are amazing and will be featured on a style post soon. They are a great transitional bootie, especially for us gals here in FL that get like a 2-week winter all year. I got them in the camel color and am honestly considering getting them in the nude color also (not kidding I love them)! I linked them below for you if you want to shop them yourselves. And ps, Nordstrom does free shipping ALWAYS!

4.) TV WEAKNESS: THE DEFIANT ONES –> OK, I’m prepared for the backlash for including TV in this list, but come on, who doesn’t love to binge watch some TV. And this show was amazing. It’s a 4 part documentary on HBO and it’s amazing. I cannot put into words how inspirational I found it. It’s all about the music industry and how Dr. Dre and Jimmy Lovine partnered up. I don’t want to give away too much, but whether you like rap music or not won’t matter, it’s great despite your music taste!



That’s it. Just a couple of my favorites for the week. I look forward to hearing about some of your favorites. Comment below 🙂



Style on a Budget: Target obsession continues…


I am loving this for summer! This amazing dress is super budget friendly and is going to be a “go to” for brunch, happy hours outside, and basically anything in this heat!! The button detailing gives it a vintage look. It’s cotton so it breathes well.


I picked this dress, particularly cause it’s cold shoulder (a style I can’t seem to get enough of). I love it. The floral print adds a nice feminine touch 😉 Best part it’s only $30… yup another amazing look from Target!|adaptpdph1|related_prods_vv|adaptpdph1|52276272|0

I paired it with some fun sunnies from Quay which are only $50

and a pair of brown sandals.  The dress is long enough you can do a cute wedge or espadrille!

Happy Tuesday ladies… go on, Style on a Budget today!!

Monday motivation with Funk & Flow…

Hey all,

I’m posting about my good friend Jessi and her grand opening of her very own Yoga studio. I could not be more proud of her and this venture.

As young women we can easily become discouraged from starting our own business and becoming entrepreneurs and this gal has faced those fears and made it happen. I had a chance to go on opening day and tried the “feel good flow” class, it was amazing ( and I’m not just saying that because she’s my friend)! Yoga has a way of setting the mood for your day or clearing your mind after a long day.  I am a big believer in the benefits of meditation and yoga and always feel great after a class!

Ladies we need to stick together and support one another. If you’re in the Ft. Lauderdale area, check it out- I promise you won’t be disappointed. Jessi is offering first class free, and there are plenty of amazing promo deals you can grab until 8/1!

Style on a Budget Tuesday… Romper Craze


Ladies are you in love with rompers as much as I am? I can’t get enough. They’re super simple, throw on and you have a complete outfit.I love that you can dress them up or down. This romper is perfect for summer and budget friendly!


Let’s talk about this look.  The romper is Target style for only $30! It’s comfortable and perfect for hot summer days/nights. I paired it with this Target purse which is also only $30. I’m loving this bag this summer. It has a strap for crossbody use as well.

They even have a mini version… check it out here

Add wedges or flats and for me, of course, a hat 😉 and you are good to go!


Keeping it Clean…

Okay,  I will admit it: I’m a neat freak! And honestly, I am not going to apologize for it. I enjoy having a clean house and have learned that clutter causes depression and mental confusion. For me keeping the house clean is enjoyable. I don’t view it as a chore. I realize for others that’s not the case.

For those of you that struggle to keep things clean, I can help! I’ve created a checklist for myself and am going to share with you all in an effort to help get you into the cleaning mode.


Here’s the deal, when you create a checklist and a cleaning schedule you will find it creates a habit. Once you do your cleaning in an organized fashion for a month you will see, it gets easier and less stressful. You will notice how much more productive you can be and how quickly you will be able to keep things clean.

Here are some additional cleaning templates I found on Pinterest, they didn’t seem to work for me but thought I’d share.
