Friday Faves | Follow Your Heart

March 26, 2021


Happy Happy Friday! This was quite the long and busy week over here so I am happy to see the weekend finally make an appearance. There is definitely an extra pep in my step now that spring has officially sprung. I am slowly but surely de-layering and it feels amazing.  All those chunky, heavy winter clothes can be put away until later this year. Yay! Here's what I am loving this week: 

Who else is a sucker for a fancy sleeve moment? If I see I top with a unique sleeve, I just have to get it! This is a super old top that I picked up from the Bloomingdales Outlet but here is a   similar one from Amazon. I think I need to order the light pink one! My unofficial office uniform is a pair of jeans (these are my faves!), a pretty top and flats.  And if I am feeling fancy, a blazer. :)

I was compelled to pick up a new pair of white sandals this week with the rise in temperatures lately. Spring and summer requires lighter shades of footwear and these babies definitely fit the bill. I love the square toe and the croc embossed texture. They look so chic on the foot. With jeans, skirts, dresses...these are going to get a lot of wear in the coming months.  And they are on sale - available here!

I am normally an iced latte kinda girl but lately? A large unsweetened iced tea with lemon from Dunkin Donuts has been responsible my energetic mornings in the office. And I like to think that I am getting extra hydration from drinking iced tea instead of coffee. :) 

Isis requested loaded chicken nachos on Taco Tuesday this week and I very happily obliged.  They were hands-down the best nachos I have ever eaten in my life. My family raved and raved about them! :) I used ground chicken and of course they had all the toppings, including a yummy sour cream drizzle. I want them again RIGHT NOW. I posted an IGTV video of the step-by-step process.  Check it out here. 

"Strawberry Margarita" by OPI is definitely one of my all-time favorite nail polish colors, and not only because of the name (LOL) but because it's the perfect bubblegum pink shade.  I have been getting  OPI Powder Perfection manicures for the past 6 months or so and I am never going back to gel polish. The powder lasts so long and has strengthened my nails so much! 

xoxo, thanks for reading and sharing! Have a fantastic weekend. 

Friday's Faves | Stay Rad

March 19, 2021


*Taps mic*... is this thing on? LOL!! Hello, hello and welcome back to Five Faves on Friday where I share a few of my favorite things that I have been loving this week. I am excited to get back into casually blogging and creating my footprint on my little corner of the internet. It's always easier (and quicker!) to share on Instagram but there is nothing like creating a good old blog post. :) 

This week has been quite the struggle for me with daylight savings. I don't think I remember having such a hard time with adjusting the loss of that hour, but this time? My body just doesn't want to catch up. *yawn*.

Ok, so let's do's what I have been loving this week!

My new favorite spring lippie is brought to you by Sephora Collection. It's the  Sephora Palm Street (62) Lipstories Lipstick. I am a sucker for a good orange lippie and this one is so pretty and unique, I am obsessed! It has a slight brown tone to it, with a touch of copper. It's almost more like a terracotta shade. I have been wearing it every day. The texture is nice and light too, but creamy and has tons of pigment. Definitely worth a try if you love orange lippies.

I FINALLY decided to try the dad sandal trend (only a year later, lol) so I ordered  these metallic cuties. They are INSANELY comfortable. I can't wait to see how these fit into my spring and summer outfits, the pop of lilac will be so fun to play around with! 

I loved rocking this thrifted trench coat this week. I look forward to to pulling it out every year as the weather gets warmer to pop over my outfit. It has a bright red lining that peeks through when worn open and it just makes me so happy. See a little throwback of how I rocked it in the past  here. :)

Oh tulips, you are so pretty! I love how wild they are in my beautiful new crystal vase (it was a present from my aunt).  I'm so thrilled my favorite flowers are back! I never want to be without a couple dozen tulips as the centerpiece on my dining room table. I literally come downstairs and smile when I see them.

And what's a Friday Faves post without my favorite drink? A fruity margarita! I have new twist lately and it's made them so much better. I use fresh lemon, lime, orange and blood orange juice to give them a citrus twist and it's SO GOOOD! I also grate lime zest and add it to the shaker to give it extra flavor.  It's tart but sweet and so flavorful. I have also been rimming the glass with sugar, salt and lime zest. It's PERFECTION! See my other fun margarita recipes here, and here.
