Screen Shot 2016-05-26 at 8.45.40 PM

Hi everyone!!! Hope you are all enjoying your long Holiday Weekend! I love these long holiday weekends that we all get to spend time with family and pay tribute to all of our countries Hero’s. Along with Memorial Day weekend celebrations and remembering comes Memorial Day Sales! I know super unpatriotic but I am a struggling nursing student and I need to save a penny where ever I can. So I rounded up my current wish list of items from the amazing Half Yearly Sale from my friends at Nordstrom that I think would just be perfect for summer. I hope you all enjoy and I have been loving all the posts on instagram and twitter of everyones picks! Talk to you all soon!

XOXO Val

Hi everyone! Hope you are all enjoying the holidays and all of the holiday parties that the season includes! I know that like myself I hate showing up to a party empty handed but what do you do when it is last minute and you don’t have a lot of time! Well fear not because I have been scouting around and these are some of my favorite things to have on hand that are go to gifts for the hostess with the mostest. It also doesn’t have to be something over the top so don’t stress about that either! Remember its the holidays and it is the thought that means the most, and nothing says Happy Holidays like a great bottle of wine too!!

Christian Louboutin Rouge Nail Polish

Louboutin Polish

If any of you are as excited about this addition to the beauty world as I am then I know you can hardly even contain yourselves! The brilliant designer behind the infamous red bottom shoes Mr. Christian Louboutin has blessed us with a nail color that allows us to sport those famous red soles on our fingers. The second I got wind that he would be coming out with a polish line you would have thought I had won the lottery with how excited I was, and took me no time at all to place my order. Now maybe I am a little bias but this has to be the most exquisite bottles of nail polish I have ever seen. From the dramatic black spiked top (that is the same height of his highest heel, the Ballerina Ultima)  and the beautifully crafted bottle that reminds me of an angular apothecary bottle found in the 18th century (but modernized of course!) The polish itself is a dream to work with and I feel like it has a lot to do with the length of the handle, you really feel like as if you are a painter and the canvas are your nails. The color is opaque and incredibly vibrant just like the color of the red soles, it is creamy and goes on effortlessly. I can not wait to get more colors from his line which include a Nude’s collection, a Noir collection and a Pop collection so you can imagine how hard it is going to be choose which one I want next!

Anyhow, I hope you all enjoyed my little review and were able to get an idea about this wonderful polish for yourself. I would love to hear how any of you are enjoying your polish or if you have gotten some of the other colors and which you think I should look into!

A few weeks ago I found myself wandering through Nordstrom after lunch at their Bistro and was thankful that I had my camera because I was so inspired by their little pop up home section. With spring on the horizon I always like to bring new pops of color into my world, and why shouldn’t the house be included in that. Wether it’s a pillow, picture or even a fun coaster I love finding little trinkets that make a house feel more like a home.

Hope you enjoy these fun little items as much as I did and always be on the look out for something that can be brought into your home that gives it a great freshen up. And if you live near a Nordstrom I would swing by and check out this little section out for yourself, you may be inspired too!!

Weekend Finds

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a lovely weekend! I must say I tried to just take it easy this weekend since this past week not only did  get back from my amazing vacation but I also came back with a cold (booooooo). Though no matter how hard I tried I did end up at my local outlet mall, I am actually lucky enough to live right next to one of the largest outlet malls in the country and a top tourist destination! Anyways I found myself at Nordstrom Rack and really scored some amazing finds, as much as I love high fashion I also love the thrill of a good find and that is exactly what you get at Nordstrom Rack.

I picked up some great simple tops that I think will look great for spring by the company Soprano. It was incredibly hard not to buy them all but I finally picked two (with the help of my mom) that I thought would be not only great additions for the new season but awesome for the hot and humid weather in south florida (similar here). They are incredibly light and airy which will be great for those rare days where there is more then a hot breeze.

And like any shopping trip how can one not scope out the she section, and if you have ever been to Nordstrom Rack then you know that its pretty much a gold mine! I try to find pieces that I can use a lot, as much as I love fun a crazy shoes when I am here I know that I am going to find a shoe that not only is great quality but it’s going to last me a long time. But with all of that in my head it all flew out the window the second I saw these Kate Spade for Keds sneakers(similar here, and here )! I have eyed these babies since they teamed up but never pulled the trigger (and I’m glad I waited, I got such an amazing deal). I love polka dots, I even have a pair on converse with them too so how could I pass up these girly and beautiful shoes. With crisp white and navy they are great for spring and in trend with the navy obsession of the moment.

On my way to the register I also snagged this two pack of simple belts that I was actually in need of! I was so excited that instead of having to buy two separate belts that some companies are pairing timeless and staple belts together. These simple and fun belts are from one of my all time favorite designers Betsey Johnson and as you can see from the picture there is a pop of leopard on the inside true to Betsey’s quirky and fun style. Also a fun little accent that you cant see in the photo are little black (similar here) stitched hearts that make even this timeless staple some spunk. Here is a link to a similar tan belt.

Hope you all enjoyed these fun little finds of mine and would love to see some of your favorite fashion steals and deals!
