Flower of the Future: Alien Flora Futura

C. Joybell C. once said, “you’re never fully dressed without perfume.” A good one, that is. I’ve always resonated with this quote because I believe that the perfume a woman wears speaks volumes about her personality! Today, I wanted to share with you a spring/summer fragrance that I’ve been loving lately. It’s the flower of the future, better known as Mugler’s Alien Flora Futura. It’s a relatively new one that became available in April of this year. Personally, I’m an avid lover of perfumes with floral notes, but I also appreciate ones with just the right amount of zest. Alien Flora Futura is just that and more — and I’m so excited to get into the details!

16 Straw Bags to Carry Now

Beach days, picnics, tropical getaways… wherever you’re headed this summer, straw bags are classic staples in every fashionista’s closet — especially for the warmer months upon us. They add plenty of personality and fun flair to even the simplest looks. Recently, I bought two new straw bags (girl’s gotta treat herself after all the stress with moving)! Specifically, I got one in a tote style which you may have seen in my last blog post, and a slouchy one that can be worn as a shoulder bag or a backpack depending on the occasion! For this look, I’m wearing it as a shoulder bag πŸ™‚

Living in Linen

Happy Memorial Day Weekend, babes! My apologies for being absent on the blog – we have been super swamped moving into our new house this month. Hopefully we will get back on our usual groove soon! In the mean time, I wanted to share this cute linen dress I found at Marshalls recently. It’s perfect for this weekend’s festivities and beyond, especially in the summer!

With the temperatures consistently exceeding 100 degrees, it’s no doubt that summer has arrived in the desert. In efforts to stay cool and comfortable in the sweltering heat, I’ve been wearing dresses and flowy silhouettes more than ever. Transitioning into warm weather attire also means accessorizing more to complete my look. I typically prefer to keep it light with jewelry; afterall, less is more! Just the right amount of bling can really take the outfit notches up in elegance. Lately, I’ve been loving Swiss fine jeweler, Baenteli’s stunning jewels.

Why Every Traveler Should Own a Miniature Backpack

Packing light has always been a bit of a struggle for me, especially when headed somewhere cold. Winter clothing is much bulkier than the clothes I’m used to wearing out in the desert. This restricts me from bringing a whole lot. On my recent trip to New York City, my luggage was pretty stuffed with thick jackets & sweaters, so there wasn’t much room left for other accessories. In fact, I was only able to bring one bag. Can you guess what it was? A miniature backpack! It was my best travel companion (aside from David of course). Together, we explored the city and hiked in the suburbs.

5 Simple Ways to Rock the Palazzo Pant Trend

Posted on Location: 1 m read

Palazzo pants have been popping up everywhere, and for good reason! While I initially thought this trend would look absurd on me, I am surprisingly obsessed with it now. When styled properly, palazzo pants can be super flattering and extremely comfy. This is a huge bonus especially for a desert dweller like myself. The temperatures are consistently going into the hundreds these days, which means light and airy bottoms are a must.

My First Airbnb Experience

Posted on 88 Comments

Just a little over a week ago, David and I had our first ever Airbnb experience together. For past travels, we’ve either just stayed at a hotel or crashed at a friend or family member’s house. We had such a great time, and expectations were more than met. At the last minute, we decided we wanted to go to NYC before the Palm Springs airport stopped doing direct flights to New York in the summer. Unfortunately, hotel prices were already going up. I didn’t want to settle for a mediocre or less-than-mediocre hotel, so I resorted to browsing through Airbnb listings. Best decision ever — since I was able to find the cutest little abode for our 4-night stay without breaking the bank!

My Favorite Apps for Curating the Perfect Instagram Feed

Posted on Location: 3 m read

I’ve learned over the many years of blogging that curating an Instagram feed to reflect your personality and a certain theme takes a lot of meticulous work and dedication! Achieving consistency is another story, and something I’m still working on these days. While I have my ups and downs, I think I’ve finally found a style that speaks to me. Using certain phone applications have helped make planning and creating consistent content much easier. Since I get so many questions about photography and the tools I use to create my content, I’ll start by sharing which phone apps I use often!

Why You Should Try Witch Hazel as a Facial Toner

This year, I started incorporating witch hazel into my everyday beauty routine. As a skincare fanatic constantly trying new products daily, I was astounded to learn that a guy friend of mine (who isn’t gay by the way) knew of this holy grail product that I had been living years without! Now, I can’t imagine getting through the day without using it. Honestly, I don’t even know how we got onto the topic, but we started talking about our skincare regimen and this casually came up in conversation. I am so glad it did!

I have always lived in a world of color when it comes to my wardrobe, and especially more so since moving to Palm Springs.

If you’re looking to incorporate splashes of color in your outfits this spring and summer, here are some pointers to help you get started!
