Anthropologie Goodies

I have to express a deep love for Anthropologie.  Always full of fabulous clothing, this store permeates a fresh, yet clean and intoxicating scent. The staff is always incredibly friendly and nothing beats their great sales. Full of candles, books, soaps, and accessories galore; there will surely be something for everyone. I love getting small gifts here that are full of whimsy and charm. Whether you're a fashionista, a relaxation enthusiast, or just have an appreciation for vintage style, Anthropologie is truly a one stop shop.

 I absolutely love this gorgeous bold printed scarf

This fun and funky make up bag is as useful as it is darling!

Just a touch of lip gloss goes a long way

This lovley bar of soap smells amazing  

Love these canine cards

A gift of luxury is this bubble bath

Meet James Radin

James Radin is an amazing interior designer from Los Angeles.  Some of his best work has been in movies such as, "Something's Gotta Give" and "The Holiday." James has a gorgeous eye for design, particularly known for a fresh, modern, yet comfortable approach.  He uses amazing natural elements that directly transports you to a fabulous retreat that you want to relax in.

James creates a beautiful juxtaposition between his soft color palette, dark woods, sea grass rugs and plush furniture. He places things in just the right place, creating an inviting and warm haven.

Summer beauty is all about minimal, natural looking, easy-to-use products that are lightweight and won't weigh you down in the heat. Here are some of my favorite beauty picks that will keep you looking and feeling fabulous all season long. Hope you enjoy!

Bumble and bumble Curl Conscious Creme tames my curls into a soft and wavy hair do

This punchy pink color, Bossa Nova by Essie, looks perfect on your toes and certainly turns up the heat for those scorching summer days

Biolage's Ultra-Hydrating Balm softens even the driest hair due to sun and heat damage

Happy 4th!

Celebrate this 4th of July in style by sporting the All-American classic color combo red, white and blue.

For  Day

Posted by Picasa
Wear a striped tank with your favorite denim shorts, a classic black bikini, cool shades and a pop of red, for a laid-back style.

For Night 

Pair a printed red and white dress with your favorite espadrille wedge (adding height and comfort), and a bold cocktail ring for a dash of sparkle.
Stay cool with these refreshing hairstyles by Jessica Alba, Kate Bosworth and Cameron Diaz. High, slicked back buns are as easy as they look and can take you from day to night.

Whether you plan to barbecue, bask in the sun, or just relax with friends; fireworks shouldn't be the only dazzler of the night.
