Ivy Park by Beyonce

The new Ivy Park by Beyonce collection has landed! Have you guys seen the pieces? I managed to get my hands on a pair of the Ivy Park Y High Rise 3/4 Leggings and think they’re just fab. I also adore these full length Ivy Park Y High Rise Leggings. They’ve almost sold out already though, so if you love something from the collection, snap it up! I like that you can return things to Nordstrom for a refund, I always shop and then send anything back I don’t love – so easy. Check out the whole Ivy Park by Beyonce range, they’re continuing to add lots of new styles.

Sport luxe has been a major trend and it’s set to continue. Speaking to workout wear, I thought I’d also share LaVanila Healthy Deodorant. Over the last year I’ve become so much more aware of what I’m eating and using on my body, there are so many chemicals in products and until you start learning more, you don’t even realize! I love this deodorant because it’s all natural and actually works – I’ve tried so many different ones and some did nothing… this is by far the best. I came across it through reading reviews and forums online and also discovered earth mumma Kourtney Kardashian wears this deodorant too. Have you used an all-natural deodorant before? Is there one you’ve tried and recommend?

To complete the perfect sport luxe look, a pair of mirrored sunglasses (I love the Beach Riot shades in silver flash, as below) and a carry-all tote bag are essentials! You’ll also find some more gorgeous sport luxe pieces from the adidas by Stella McCartney range.

What do you think of the new Ivy Park by Beyonce collection? I love being comfy and find when I’m running errands or relaxing at home, I am often in leggings – so excited for this new Beyonce venture!

Best One Piece Swimsuit and Mirrored Sunglasses

Found! Today I’m sharing the best one piece swimsuit I’ve seen in so long. Guys, how can it be April already? April! Spring has well and truly sprung and I’m excited for lots of fun vacations. In a little over four weeks I’m off to New Caledonia, Vanuatu and Fiji, so excited! Of course, a few gorgeous swimsuits are mandatory so I have been searching high and low for the best once piece swimsuit. I absolutely love this one from Vitamin A, look at the back – how stunning!

I’ve also been wanting to add a new pair of mirrored shades to my collection and these Illesteva sunglasses are perfect. Oh and I had to share a book I’ve been obsessed with reading every night, it’s called ‘All In Good Taste’ by Kate Spade. It is all about entertaining, tips for creating an amazing atmosphere, being the ultimate hostess and lots more I think all girls should know to add a little sparkle and magic to their life. Not only is it a must-read, it’s also a brilliant coffee table book too!

Talking about swimwear today, are you a one-piece or bikini girl? I really think there is something so polished and stunning about a beautiful one-piece. As I’ve got older I am definitely a one-piece girl, it is more flattering for my body. What do you guys think? Have you bought any swimwear for the new season? If you have spotted anything you love, please leave a comment with the link – I want a few for my vacation!

Best Self Tanner and Camilla Kaftan

How gorgeous is this Camilla kaftan! It was love at first sight for me. With spring here, it’s also time to get bronzed and glowing… this is my go-to self tanner. But, I have to tell you, after years and years of self tanning, I used an applicator mitt and it was a total game changer! I’d always resisted buying one, thinking it was just some marketing ploy, after all – I have hands to apply tan (and I can wash them), so what’s the point of a mitt?! I finally bought one and it makes your tan go on so smooth and evenly. I can’t imagine tanning without one now. I just had to share this tip with you!

My best friend also got me a little gift recently, a Jo Malone Scent Surround Diffuser and it is absolutely beautiful. Every time I visited her apartment, I’d always comment (or shriek with delight) at the divine smell her home had – as you got out of the lift and approach her door, you could smell this gorgeous scent. Then when you walked through the door, heaven! I love that my home smells incredible now too.

Olivia Palermo x Westward Leaning

I’ve been completely obsessed with these Olivia Palermo x Westward Leaning sunglasses in recent weeks. I first spotted them on Olivia Palermo’s instagram and it was love at first sight. They’re effortlessly cool and add a perfect vibe to any outfit… not to mention the rose gold lens color! Ahh, rose gold. Do you guys adore this hue as much as I do?

I also wanted to make special mention of this Queen Bee necklace. I can’t help but think of ‘Queen Bey’, isn’t it completely fabulous? Such a fun statement piece for spring! What have you been loving lately?

New Cupcakes and Cashmere Collection

Have you guys seen the new Cupcakes and Cashmere Spring 2016 collection? It’s amazing to see fellow bloggers embark on creative ventures. I personally love this off the shoulder top, so cute for spring. Off the shoulder is going to be a major trend this season, it’s been popping up everywhere lately!

When I shared these Steve Madden Eleanorr lace up ballet flats last week, I was floored to see how quickly they sold out. You girls clearly share my love for this stunning spring style – they’re definitely the hottest shoe of the season.

The blush color was gone within a day and is sold out everywhere, but there only are a few left here – seriously if you love them, don’t leave them or you’ll miss out completely!

Oh and girls, this cruiser bike… how cute is it! I couldn’t believe it’s only $83.

Friday Faves – Lumee iPhone Case + More!

I am super excited to share a few things I currently covet, among them is my latest obsession – the Lumee iPhone illuminated case. Have you guys heard about it or seen this in action? A favorite among models, celebs and fellow bloggers, it has panels of light that illuminate when you take a photo or do a video chat. So basically, you’ll always look amazing – it’s like having built-in studio lighting. Love!

I’ve also been pretty pumped to discover the ultimate dupe for the highly sought after Prada sunglassesthis pair is only $20 and look fabulous on! Oh and I really want the Michael Kors Ritz rose gold and blush watch, does anyone have it? Ugh, I keep looking at it every day online, I think I need it. Do you ever do that too, stalk pieces online that you love? I should just buy it already.

Finally, I also wanted to make special mention of my absolute favorite sleepwear everrr. For years I’ve literally lived in these satin pajamas from Victoria’s Secret. I have about six pairs, all different colors and spend most of my time at home in them. I love that they’re comfy, but still look super cute and put-together (way cuter than sweatpants).

Friday Faves – Beautiful Ways To Wear Neutral Tones

I’ve been absolutely obsessed with wearing neutral tones lately, I love the easy and effortless vibe they create. My go-to hues for spring are tan, gray, white and blush. Their light, soft and feminine feel is beautiful to wear. Of course an easy way to add a little edge to your look is distressed denim, I adore the contrast of wearing really ‘pretty’ pieces with something ‘tough’.

There are some stunning pieces that have just come out for spring and today, I wanted to share my favorites with you. They’re also the perfect way to transition your style from winter to spring. Tell me girls, are you a fan of wearing neutral tones too?
