There were custom Italian chocolates, red carpet atmosphere, delicious food, cocktails, KS execs, jewelry on display, photographers and of course the famous Color Bar by Kendra Scott! All of the KS ladies looked gorgeous, and were great hosts. It was seriously amazing! The goodie bags were SO FAB too! Cori, and everyone else at the Fashion Island store- you rocked this event. I had a blast.

Summer Beauty Product Reviews

20130724-064343.jpgHaving a great arsenal of summer products is key to healthy, and beautiful hair and skin. After testing out each of these drug store beauty finds, here’s what I think…

1. Pantene Pro-V Volume, Silicone Free Shampoo: 100% AMAZING!!!!! I have been using it all summer with the matching conditioner. I recommend both! Got my sister, Laura, hooked on it too. Hair is super shiny, healthy, and weightless. Note to the health-conscious: this is NOT a sulfate-free product. However it is silicon and dye free. These days it seems like you have to pick and choose your evils to get a great product. I am going to keep using this shampoo and it’s matching conditioner.

2. Coppertone Tanning Oil Sunscreen Spray with SPF: It’s great, but it’s the first of this type of product I’ve used. I want to also try the L’Oreal product (the Sublime Bronze Sunscreen Oil), and see which I like better. This product is not greasy at all. Goes on really smoothly. I also love that it’s broad spectrum!!!! Gotta have good sun protection. I would buy this product again if I don’t like the L’Oreal better.

3. Banana Boat Moisture After Sun Lotion: Not buying again. It’s not easy to rub in, and doesn’t really feel like a drink of water for my skin. I am not going to buy again, and will be looking for a more moisturizing and after-sun lotion. Any recommendations?

4. Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets: Love these!!!! Definitely buying again when they run out! They are equally as great, if not better, than the high-end make up brand ones that I’ve used. Keeps me fresh and shine free. They don’t rub off my make up when I use them, which is a big PLUS! I recommend this product.

Enjoy every ounce of summer, and don’t forget to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen! It’s important to take care of your skin today, for a beautiful and more healthy tomorrow.

What I Wore Today

Today I wore this quilted white leather jacket, black top, army green pants and heels. The weather was finally cool enough to wear this glam jacket; I like the zipper pocket details and wrist buttons. I accessorized with the “J Crew Venus Flytrap Necklace.” Hope this gives you an idea for your next casual, fun outfit!

Layer It Up for Alaska!!

“Dress in layers because the weather can change at any moment!” That’s what everyone told me before my trip to Alaska. Prep for rain, snow, cold, hot; you get the idea. These are the layers I wore in Icy Strait Point, Alaska. Even though there was super light rain, I wasn’t cold at all. This outfit was perfectly functional! My boots were just right for all the terrain we covered too! It was a really fun day!!

We had an amazing 5 mile hike in Icy Strait Point. My husband took this photo of me among the trees.

Anchorage had far less rain and mud, plus it was a little warmer! So I changed up the outfit with different pants, hiking shoes and dropped the scarf. It was great for another 5 mile hike! BELOW: JEANS Abercrombie & Fitch, boot cut vintage wash // HIKING SHOES: The North Face.

20130718-185814.jpgI’ll post more outfits from my trip, and if you ever go to Alaska, it’s TRUE: Dress in layers!

Running Errands: Easy & Fab

Woohoo! Back from an amazing trip, and feeling refreshed! Let’s talk fashion!

There’s no reason you have to look shabby running errands! Don’t get me wrong, I wear gym clothes to run around, get groceries, and make that last-minute run to Home Goods for a picture frame that I “need” 😉 …but for the days you’re not coming from a work out, keep it fresh with a super easy outfit. I wore this while getting some things done for our vacation.

20130712-215316.jpgBAG & SHOES: Jessica Simpson // SHIRT: Old Navy // EARRINGS: Kendra Scott, Heather Hoop Earrings in Slate

Stay fresh, joyful and positive! There’s much to be grateful for in this life.

What I Wore: EMERALD!!!

Emerald is the color of the year, and I am LOVING it!!! After a week of photo shoots, dress rehearsals and 4 amazing shows, this is what I wore on stage for our finale.

20130702-071420.jpgThis photo was taken late at night after the event, but I still had to share it with you! Details: DRESS: Arden B // HEELS: Enzo Angiolini (looks identical to the Jimmy Choo’s, for a much different price tag).
