Playing The Waiting Game:

Benefit cosmetics has come out with a new product called Fine-One-One. It's a sheer brightening cheek & lip color stick that has three different shades strategically placed so that you can add color and highlight to your cheekbones all in one swipe! I have to say that i'm a little skeptical, however the reviews say otherwise. So I bit the bullet and ordered one for myself.
I have to wait a whole week before it arrives. Boo! 
Now the waiting game begins...
Find out more about Benefits Fine-One-One HERE.
 I cannot wait to try this product! I'll be sure to review it here once I've had a chance to experiment with it a bit. 
Are there any products out there that you are curious to try out?

Fall has finally arrived and I couldn't be happier. I just love this time of year. Now...if a cold front would roll in, I'd love it even more. Another thing I love is with that, I'll leave you with October's Playlist. (On time for once)   :)

My Little Lily Bug

Today is a very special day, my baby sister turns 8!!

It breaks my heart that I can't just click my heels three times and find myself in Texas celebrating her special day with the rest of the family. This picture is the only glimpse of the festivities I'll get today.   

Lily you are getting soo big and growing more beautiful every day. I love you very much and I hope you have an extra special day. :)

Music Playlist: July 2012

It's been a very emotional month for me.  so much so that a few of these here songs on this playlist actually brought tears to my eyes. I guess a good cry is needed every now and again....Well I'll make this post short, have a zillion things to do today and not enough time or energy.

I hope you enjoy July's playlist. I promise the music isn't depressing as I'm making it seem. I've included a song I'm going to include in my wedding! (That song brought me happy tears) 

Enjoy this beautiful day!

Happy 4th Everyone!

Music Playlist:June 2012

Where did May go!? The months just came and went and I never had the chance to post May's music playlist. Shame on me. Life has been so busy lately... and hot. While Summer hasn't officially arrived, the heat, rain and humidity have. It seems Summer is full swing here in Florida. I'm about ready to call it quits and move somewhere cooler. 

This months playlist is a fun mix of my usual melancholy, lovey stuff (for lack of description) and some great dance inducing tunes. Yes, I've been bopping around the house dancing like a some of these songs, don't judge me. 

Any songs that get you pumped up and dancing around the house or anywhere?? C'mon you know that I know, we all do it :P

Stay Cool!

Song of the Day:

It's pretty safe to say that Ed Sheeran's "The A Team" will be on repeat for a good part of June. Can't get enough of it...till my next song obsession anyways. :)

Read That...See This:

I read The Great Gatsby many moons ago and was quite taken with the story. While this may not be the first film adaptation about the infamous Gatsby; it will be the first I see. So excited to see this film, not only because it has an amazing cast  but also because it is a Baz Luhrmann film! (Huge fan of his work)  The scenes are bound to be 1920's jazzy with all it's glitz and glamour with a bit of a modern feel. Ahh...the organized chaos that it Baz. The soundtrack seems promising too.  Can't wait! I think I will  go re-read the book now. :P

Oh Hello You...Beautiful Things...

Adore this embellished tank dress

A perfect shoe for all my spring/summer dresses

These heels sparkle like no other. 

Really like this color block dress with above heels maybe??

This cashmere tunic in every color they have availble! 
comes also in Mint, Tangerine & White <3

This denim shoulder bag is calling my name 

How's this belt for a nice pop of color? Love it!

I'd love to stack this beaded bracelet

I'm all about patterns and color this spring/summer, you couldn't tell by this weeks "Hello You.." post, but honestly I swoon over any item I see  in lavender mint green, blush or aqua. 

Do you have a color you're obsessing over this season?

How Very...Pinteresting...

So... I have to confess that I have recently jumped on the Pinterest bandwagon. All I have to say OMG !!!  I'm kinda obsessed. It's the perfect virtual pin-board. I signed up and wasted no time getting to work, creating boards and pinning wedding inspirations, DIY projects, recipes, art and fashion ideas. You name it and it can probably be found on Pinterest, and if not, you can upload pictures and create a pin yourself (How neat is that?). 

It's so exciting to see all the things I love in one place. If ever curiosity gets the best of you and you want to mosey on over to my Pinterest page, here's the link:

Do you pin? If so, I'd love to see what inspires you, just leave a comment with a link to your page.  :)

Hope everyone is have a beautiful day!

Music Playlist: April 2012

I know...April's almost over, shame on me. :(
Without further ado, here's this month's music playlist!

I hope everyone is enjoying the weather it's been a marvelous day. 
It's a shame to have to be stuck in my office all day. C'est La Vie.
What do you like to do on blustery, cool, spring days?? 
I'm thinking a hammock and a good book sounds just divine.

Music List: March 2012

In honor of my sweet sister Gabby's 22nd birthday, this months music playlist is dedicated to her. I've put in a few of her fave songs, let see if she notices. :P

On another note: even though I'm soooo not ready for the hot summery Florida weather, this week has been gorgeous. It stinks that i'm stuck in an office and not able to enjoy the outdoors. I hope we get a beautiful weekend to match. Anybody planning anything outdoorsy for this weekend :)

Blog & Music Love:

A few years ago, I discovered an awesome little blog run by Mrs. Elsie. Her blog,  A Beautiful Mess  is full of neat D.I.Y projects, yummy recipes and amazing fashion/photography pieces. In addition, she runs her own vintage store/bakery with her sister and has designed her very own dress line. How amazing is that? If you haven't already checked out her blog I highly recommend giving it a look-see. 

Thanks to Mrs. Elsie, this past week, I discovered a new musical gem to add to my every growing collection: Sucre'

Did you have a listen?   What did you think? 

Personally, I can't wait to hear the rest of her album. I've fallen in love with the song and I think the video is quite fantastically whimsical. :)

Hope you all are having a fantastic day!

Great Anticipation...and Dread:

Sorry for these long absences, i'm trying to better plan out posts so I'm not posting once a week or longer. But in my defense, I'm been working hard, traveling some and trying to overcome a minor back injury.

Well, the day has finally arrived. dun dun dun... I get to experience The Civil Wars in concert tomorrow night! Unfortunately my concert buddy (err fiance) has to work so I'm hoping my sister can make it last minute or i'm stuck going solo.

Today's post is brief, but I'll leave you with a few of their songs that I've had on repeat since forever and a day. I can't wait to hear them from the second row! With my own two ears!...heavenly. 

My absolute Fave!
