Look for Less! Cute & Comfy Panties!

20 Aug

Every woman loves a pair of cute and comfortable panties and it’s an added bonus when they don’t break the bank. I have always loved all lace thongs because let’s face it-some thongs can be uncomfortable when they should feel like they’re barely there. The material plays a big part in it, soft lace accomplishes the comfort goal, that’s for sure. I found the perfect lace thong many years ago at Nordstrom. The brand is called Hanky Panky- they come in a variety of colors and fit like a glove. The only drawback is that they’re $18-$25 EACH! Even if you can afford that price, they can still add up quickly when you’re stocking up. And for a lot of women on a budget, they can’t afford that price at all. That is where my look for less comes into play- I discovered the cutest, comfortable and AFFORDABLE lace thong panties at Target.  They come in 9 different colors and fit the same as Hanky Panky, but the price is unbelievable! Even At full price they are only $5 each, but you can catch them on sale a few times a year for $20 for 5 pairs or even $24 for 7 pairs. They are currently $20 for 5, which is $4 a pair. I highly suggest you stock up now! At this price, you really can buy every color!

Another bonus for the Target panties is that they come in sizes XS-XL.

Sheer Perfection!

18 Jul

Let me start by saying that I love all things pink.  I love any and every shade of the pretty color but I’m partial to blush.  Blush pink is so soft and feminine, looks great on all skin tones, and goes with everything…..which led me to a year-long search for the prettiest sheer pink nail polishes. By sheer I mean that they’re almost like a clear polish with a slight pink tint to them.

I’ve tried so many pinks along the way and have narrowed it down to my favorite 3 that I’m going to share with you today.  The colors below are perfect for year round wear, but I especially love wearing them in the Summer. Also these beautiful understated hues are perfect for your wedding day.

Starting with the sheerest of them all,  Essie Sugar Daddy is like your nails, only better. This color looks like you have really healthy nails- think nude with a hint of pink.

Next up, a slightly pinker -but still not too pink color is Essie Mademoiselle. It is sheer just like Sugar daddy but can build (2-3 coats) to a pretty milky pink.

Lastly, this super shiny pink(slightly more pink than the others)  is OPI Passion. This color is similar to the others and can be built up just like mademoiselle can be. It’s the shiniest and longest wearing of the three as well.

Note: All three colors can be built up but remain sheer. 

My Paris Trip!

16 Jun

I  recently arrived back home to Los angeles from a dream vacation to Paris with my wife. I was so satisfied when the trip ended and I looked back at all that we had done- We did everything on our list and more. As promised, here are just some of our many pictures below. Paris is considered to be a trip of a lifetime for most and it did not disappoint. Bucket list…..Check!

Random travel tips:

*Exchange your money before you go to save a bit on the exchange rate and save time waiting in line at the French airport.

*Learn a few common phrases in French. ‘hello, goodbye, thank you, how much’ etc.

*Get the international data plan your phone carrier offers, it’s worth it. My plan was just $10 a day to use data in France.

*Don’t forget to bring outlet converters (specifically for France) so that you can charge your electronics, including your phone.

*Indulge!!!! Counting calories can be done when you get back home! There is also plenty of walking to offset the overeating you will do! We walked 10-15 miles a day!

Me- right before Nina surprised me with a beautiful band to add to my wedding stack. It was beyond romantic. I will never forget that moment.
