I'll be leaving for vacation, mid week! A group of best friends and I are going to Honolulu, Hawaii for 5 days! It's going to be an absolute blast and a well deserved getaway for all of us! Follow me on Facebook and Twitter so I can update and chat with you:)
This weekend I started semi packing, or at least started organizing things I will be taking with me. I thought it would be helpful and fun to show you the products I swear by and use everyday!
Some products I love an couldn't be without are CHI, Cover Girl, Chanel and Swedish Skin. A friend of mine swears by the line Swedish Skin and turned me onto it. I've tried many different skin care lines but can honestly say Swedish Skin is my favorite and proven line, by far. The line is unique in that, the ingredients found in the products are stem cells extracted from Swedish apples. The apple stem cells react with the stem cells in your skin to keep a youthful and healthy glow.
Let me know if anyone has tried Swedish Skin, and whether you love it as much as I do!
Allow me to introduce you to the sweetest southern belle, fashionista and blogger extrordinare, Danielle from Just Dandy!
Danielle offered to makeover my blog and I think she did a fabulous job!
I have to seriously thank her for putting up with me and how picky I was about the smallest details, lol! She is such a sweetheart and super easy to work with! She pays close attention to detail and listens to your requests :) I would DEFINITELY recommend her to anyone looking for anything from designing a banner for your blog, setting up cute link buttons or making over your entire blog!
Thank you again, Girl! xoxo!
Take a lookHERE for her site and some super adorable past blogs she's put together.

What was supposed to be quick, half day in the office followed by a drive to LA for an afternoon of business plans, followed by a quiet evening out for dinner and a few cocktails, turned out to be so much more fun and random than anticipated!
*You can tell by this candid shot of a frazzled me and my STUFFED trunk that this day was a little more hectic than planned*
When I arrived in LA around 2pm I stopped for a quick bite and take away sweets from my favorite gourmet market/ cafe, Bottega Louie. I chose a mini Italian salami baguette and a side of fresh marinated shrimp salad. I carried out some adorable baby gummy bears and a baby blue, bow tied bag of chocolate/ peanut butter pretzel balls.
LA Live in Downtown LA has some amazing happy hour specials. Surprisingly a restaurant called The Farm of Beverly Hills had the best drinks made with fresh juices. The Strawberry Lemonade and Grapefruit Martini were delish :)
There was also a nice patio attached to "The Farm" where we lounged, people watched and admired the skyscrapers.
We were approached by a ticket scalper who was trying to sell tickets to a private interview and concert for 150 people for John Mellencamp. Though I would have loved the opportunity, at the time a concert just seemed so far from what we had planned.
We finished our drinks and were approached by the scalper once more, when he told us that he wasn't able to sell the tickets and offered them to us... Yep! I was very excited! We ran next door and made it in just in time!
The private concert was totally intimate and amazing!
I stopped into Nordstrom today on my lunch break to have a link taken out of my watch, and was caught off guard by these bright neon babies. Im in love with them and the price point is totally reasonable. At under $300 I think I can justify investing in a trendy handbag that will likely go out of style in a couple seasons.
Though I was able to exhibit some self control by holding off on the neon Halston, I did find the cutest little pink pyramid cut stone ring by Juicy Couture.
My new favorite piece is this monochromatic, unstructured, shoulder-padded cropped jacket I saw Elin Kling wearing in her blog a month or so ago. I didn't realize it was from H&M, but should have known...and SO inexpensive at $19.95. I opted for a size 10 so that it fits extra loose and "hangy".
Also, My hair is getting long enough to braid :) I loosely flipped out my bangs and layers with a large barreled curling iron and Haphazardly braided the back...
