Happy shopping everyone!
I want to start this post off by saying that I love to shop and have new clothing, shoes, accessories, etc., just like most girls. And since I love to shop, I have come to love the finer things in life. But the finer things in life cost a lot of money, unfortunately. And I am definitely not able to go out and buy the newest and latest designer trends. I have to save up for them. Sometimes for years. Well that is what happened with these beautiful heels!

About a year ago now, I came across this Juicy Couture bathing suit top at a Marshalls in their Clearance section. I do not think I own anything Juicy Couture, minus their perfume, so I pretty excited when I scored this top. There wasn’t a bottom to go with it, so I just wear a white bikini bottom to go with it, and it works out fine.
I hope you all have a great weekend celebrating Easter and being with your families. I will talk to you soon, so come back to visit with me!
Recently, The Hollywood Reporter named their Top 25 Power Stylists of 2014. The stylist are picked based off their A- list clientele and their flawless styling skills during red carpet season. The stylist I was most excited to find out about was Micaela Erlanger, who styles my favorite fashionista, Lupita Nyong’o. Micaela also styles Michelle Dockery of Downton Abbey, who I love as well. After the stylists were named, Jimmy Choo hosted the Top 25 Power Stylist Luncheon in West Hollywood. This was the 2nd annual event to honor fabulous stylist of the year. If you have the chance, check out the article and find out who this years top stylists were!
Thanks for visiting with me today!
Day 2 of our trip to Boston was a lot of fun! I finally went back to my alma mater, Boston College, and took a cheesy photo next to the Boston College entrance. I truly miss being a student and living the college life with all of my college friends, so I was so happy to visit my old stomping grounds. I wish those four years didn’t go by so quickly because when I look back, it was probably the best time in my life. After we visited the school, Tyronne and I met up with some of my old college roommates at a delicious seafood restaurant in the city. Tyronne always tells me that Florida’s seafood is nothing like New England seafood, so it was only right that we eat seafood while up north. We had to go get a bowl of clam chowder; that goes without saying. Everything was delicious and it was so nice to spend the evening with good company.
I hope everyone’s week is going well! Thank you for visiting with me tonight.

Yesterday, Tyronne and I attended my friend from high schools wedding! It was held at a beautiful venue in Homestead, Miami called The Cooper Estate, and the weather was perfect yesterday for a wedding. It was about 60 degrees in the evening and during the ceremony, the highest temperature was about 75. I had to text her early in the afternoon before we attended the wedding to say how goregous the weather was for her, because as we all know, it can get pretty hot here in Miami. I would describe the venue as rustic meets classic. The wood estate and candle-lit dinner provided a warm environment for guests, and outside the dinner, where cocktail hour was held features “a sunken grotto with waterfalls, rare exotic palms and massive mature oaks with moonlighting”.
I am so happy the Brittney and Brett finally got hitched. It has been a long time coming because they have been together for close to 10 years (I think… but it is something very long). They couldn’t be more of an ideal couple. You know people who you see together and think “gosh they are perfect for one another”, well that is Brittney and Brett. They truly look like one another’ soul mates and I was so happy I was able to attend their wedding and be a part of their special day.
