The Sephora August Shopping Event starts today! Hooray for a good sale! The sale runs through the 19th.  The best news is that when you’re a VIB member, you get triple points. Time to stock up. Below are some of my favorites.

  1. Glow Recipe Watermelon Sleeping Mask | I really love face masks, and I’ve been enjoying this one for a couple of reasons. First, it works while I’m sleeping which requires zero effort, and secondly, the packaging is gorgeous.
  2. Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte Shine Lipstick | This lipstick is so easy. You can swipe it on without even looking and has the best buildable coverage.
  3. Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation | This foundation is a classic for those who work long hours. It stays on and looks fresh all day long.
  4.  Sunday Riley Saturn Sulfur Mask | Another one of the face mask I’ve been enjoying, the stuff in this tube lessens the breakouts I do have and I could swear it stops some bumps I feel emerging overnight.
  5. Sephora Beauty on the Fly Bag | This travel bag is cheap and great for traveling. I like to keep it in my purse even when I’m not traveling and fill it with a couple lipsticks so it’s easy to find the color I want fast.

Guys this is EXACTLY how I look when I work out. Hair down and curled…full contour…JK. I look like a sweaty troll but the outfit is the same. But seriously how chic is my my new gear from Adidas? I need all the help I can get in the motivation department when it comes to working out, and a good outfit defiantly fits the bill.

122a9891I was going through my computer the other day, deleting old files, when I came across these photos from last summer and realized that I never posted them! Luccia and I shot these on the South Point rocks, which is probably one of my favorite places in Miami. It was DISGUSTINGLY hot that day and I was terrified that I was going to fall on the rocks, but looking back at these photos is making me want to do another shoot there! But maybe I’ll wait until October when its not quite so steamy outside haha!

When you travel as much as I do, you can’t help but pick up a few tips to make your trips easier along the way. So today I’m sharing a few of my favorite travel tricks:

  1. Always book your plane flights on Tuesday afternoons. A good friend of mine works for an airline, and she swears by this trick for getting significantly discounted airfares! Also the cheapest days to fly are Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday. I usually find the best deals on Priceline.
  2. I always ALWAYS pack a change of clothes in my carry on, or at least an extra pair of underpants and a tooth-brush. You never know when your luggage may get lost. *Thats why I recently upgraded to this Raden suitcase that has a built in location tracker, it also weighs itself and charges your phone!
  3. If you are going abroad, always leave a photo copy of your passport & itinerary with your emergency contact person. Life happens and I always like to be better safe than sorry.
  4. If you are trying to travel light, on a budget, or over packed and didn’t leave room for souvenirs, I recommend keeping matchbox from each restaurant you visit. This is such an easy, and not to mention free, way to come home with some memorabilia from your trip. I keep all of mine in a cute little dish on my bar cart.
  5. No one likes to deal with chipped nails during a holiday, so I always make sure to bring a long-wear nail polish like CND Vinylux.
  6. Pack a first aid kit: Tylenol, Tums, Band aids, etc. Navigating foreign pharmacies can be a linguistic nightmare, and I’ve never regretted having brought along some Advil for that inevitable hangover from too much wine, or some Pepto after I’ve eaten too much pasta. I love all these different options from Pinch Provisions.
  7. Use a sample size perfume that you’ve never worn before during the trip. That way whenever you smell it throughout the years, it will always trigger memories of that particular vacation.

Shopbop just added a bunch of new things to their sale! I’ve picked a couple of my favorite things and detailed my top five below.

  1. Pineapple Floating Cooler | You’ve seen them on instagram, wondered where they were from, and now you know. Go ahead and buy it so you can enjoy it for the last weeks of summer.
  2. Oxford Blue Off-the-Shoulder Shirt | This off-the-shoulder top with bell sleeves ensures you have both trends covered at once. I love the blue color (so crisp and classic!) and it’s well under $100. Count me in.
  3. Alice + Olivia Floral Bomber Jacket | Obsessed with this bomber jacket for Fall. Think of how perfect it will be with all the blush accessories you already have from Summer! You can base a whole Fall wardrobe around one great, stand-out jacket.
  4. Loeffler Randall Blush Pom Pom Sandals | Perfect to dress up the aforementioned Bomber jacket. Heels tall enough for a night out, but short enough to wear comfortably to work.
  5. English Factory Bell Sleeve Wrap Dress | Looks way more expensive than the $73 pricetag. I’m all about dresses that can pull double duty, and I can see this working for both a Saturday night out with sky-high heels and Sunday brunches the next day (…or the next weekend. Let’s be real, chances are I’m not going anywhere after a Saturday night out.)

Enjoy and get them while you can!
