Naked glam

13 Jul

I have yet to embrace head-to-toe nude tones in an outfit… now I’m totally inspired me to give it a shot. I thought I was too pastey white to pull it off, but these pale-skinned beauties have officially changed my mind!

I have, however, been all about nude lips lately. Instead of going out and splurging on the perfect shade, I have just been mixing face powder and vaseline. Hey, it works! I get so annoyed spending a ton of money on makeup… would much rather save for clothes.

Sangria Sundays

Sangria Sundays

Check that picture in the background. Super creepy, right?!

While it’s sad I have to be piling on layers when it’s supposed to be summer, there really is nothing like a thick sweater on a gloomy San Francisco day. 

Today my sister and I spent the afternoon shopping on Polk Street followed by a little sangria sipping. Felt appropriate as Spain was playing in the World Cup finals. It’s so fun having my sister close by for the summer! I wish she would move here for reals.

Plans for later include watching TV and being lazy as can be. My favorite kind of Sunday. Hope you all had a lovely weekend!

Come away with me

Come away with me

Blake, Lola and I took a little weekend trip down to Monterrey for a 4th of July getaway. The sun was shining bright, the water was crystal clear, and the soft sandy beaches were infested with seals. Lola and the slimy sea beasts enjoyed barking back and forth… a little bizarre, but entertaining and cute nonetheless.

I absolutely loved our hotel – I was expecting a rundown beachy spot, but we lucked out with an awesome room and a balcony overlooking the coastline. We spent our days walking around the little town, eating crab, lobster and taffy, sipping on cocktails, oh… and we even accidentally crashed a wedding! To our suprise, the bride was thrilled with our unnannounced arrival so we celebrated and toasted the newlyweds into the night – clearly this is a hot trend right now. It was just the fun-filled escape we were looking for.

Oh, and don’t forget to enter my St.Eve jewelry giveaway!

This past weekend I told you all about the bloglovin’ Midsummer party that Blake and I attended.  Well, the cameras were rolling and Dan, one of the bloglovin’ boys, put together this gorgeous video documenting the festivities.  It was so beautifully done that I felt it would be wrong of me not to share.

I know you’re probably already using bloglovin’, but if not, it’s a super easy way to follow the blogs that you love and find new ones that you may not have heard of yet.  Check it out and, you know… you can totally follow me there, too. ♥

Have an incredible weekend, you guys!
