May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day. May songbirds serenade you every step along the way. May a rainbow run beside you in a sky that’s always blue. And may happiness fill your heart each day your whole life through.

 Happy Fri-Yay, lovelies! I’m loving this peachy, half-sleeve coat from Choies. It’s so versatile, and just so perfect for spring – wouldn’t you agree? I’ve paired mine with a pair of skinny, ripped denim (lately I’ve been obsessing over ripped denim if you haven’t noticed), and my “it” handbag for this season: My hot pink handbag from Kate Spade. I found it at Marshalls when I decided to pay them a visit during my lunch break from work. As always, I strolled around the store while sipping on my coffee, and there she was…A bright pink beauty – just sitting there all by herself – literally just waiting for me to pick her up, and so I did. Isn’t she a beauty?

Also, I’m SO excited to share a sneak peek of my Tassel Bead Bracelet Collection coming out June 1st, 2015 with YOU! Each bead bracelet is handmade by me, and even comes with little “Made With Love” tags. I cannot wait to share more designs from my Tassel Bead Bracelet Collection with you within the next couple of weeks – but until then mark your calendars for June 1st, 2015!

As always, thanks much for reading & have a wonderful weekend!

 Much love.

Since it’s Monday and we just finished a much needed weekend, I thought it was appropriate to post an outfit with one of the coolest sequined dresses ever made. It’s a fiesta in dress form — it’s shiny, it’s gold…simply a girls dream!  A dress like this requires very little in the accessories department: An equally bright bag, coordinating nude pumps and a spiky gold bracelet do the trick. But you probably wonder now…”This is a dress?!” Yes, it actually is (!) but I wore it as a top instead. Why? Well, Chicago’s weather isn’t warm enough yet to wear it as a dress only (it’s quite short!) hence I decided to pair it with a beautiful lace skirt. Hope you like it!

As always, thanks for reading & have a fabulous week!

Much love!

What’s In My Bag?!




Today I decided to give you a chic peek of what’s inside my bag because let’s face it: Our handbag/purse is our sanctuary, am I right?! My handbag holds all of my knickknacks and daily deeds. And let’s not forget: The contents of one’s bag oftentimes tell you a whole lot about its owner! So, here’s to a chic peek inside my bag, and ultimately my soul! Enjoy!

Daily Planner/Calendar: I truly cannot live without my daily planner. Each day I write down all of my tasks for the day, and once I accomplish them I actually mark them off with a pretty check mark! Yep, I’m that detail-oriented!

Sole Serum: This is the BEST thing ever. I pretty much live in heels, so whenever I feel like my feet are starting to hurt I apply Sole Serum on my feet! I’ll let it dry for a few seconds… et voilà! Pain no more, and my heels are back on! Seriously, it’s like Advil for your feet!

bareMinerals Lipgloss: Simply a must-have to keep my lips moisturized and hydrated throughout the day.

IPhone: How else would I be able to stay in touch with you all?! #socialmediafreak

IPad: I need help. #seriouslysocialmediacrazy

Business cards: I mean you never know who you are going to meet, besides, it’s super professional. Ha!

Chanel Perfume: My favorite scent, and my hubby loves it too.

Sunglasses: These Illesteva sunglasses are by far my favorite. I wear them all the time, like ALL THE TIME.

Wallet: Essential.

As always, thank you for reading & have a fabulous weekend!

PS: Thank You to those who have entered my GIVEAWAY with Albion Fit! We have a winner: It is Merrie K., style blogger at PetiteCareerGirl! Congratulations, love!
