While I’ve worn an arm party here and there in the past, I’ve really been into stacking bracelets lately. I’ve especially been looking for great gold-tone bracelets. The below three from Stella & Dot, who is known for their relatively affordable jewelry and accessories, are my latest acquisitions that I just love:
One of life’s simplest but most delightful pleasures for me is to step into a cozy French bakery early in the morning, feeling the warmth of the oven still on, and breathing in the tantalizing fresh aroma of pastries. The next pleasure is, of course, partaking in eating them. Laura Mercier’s La Petite Patisserie Travel Candle Trio has captured three beautiful scents of the patisserie in a perfect candle travel set, and the best part is, it’s calorie-free! Despite wondering if these gorgeous smells would make my stomach growl, I found them satisfying my senses without the craving. The sweet flavors of Fresh Fig, Almond Coconut Milk, and Crème de Pistache are wrapped up in votive candles to release that bakery-fresh smell whether you’re cozying up at home or on the road. When I travel, I find that a candle goes a long way in setting the ambience and bringing warmth and comfort to a hotel room.
Fresh Fig is my favorite of the vibrant trio, and I can almost taste the fresh Celeste Figs and fruit bouquets of Apricot Nectar and Ylang Ylang. The mini candle certainly packs a punch–within minutes of being lit, the room is permeated with the delicious warm scent. The Almond Coconut Milk is the most comforting, a sweet version of milky flavors with a tropical twist. It combines Milk, Coconut, Almond and Vanilla notes with Heliotrope and Musk for a rich experience. Last but not least, Crème de Pistache is an exotic and decadent blend of Almost, Praline and Hazelnut with freshly Whipped Cream for a luscious, rich scent. The candles have a 20-30 hour burn time, which is key for small candles–they go the distance for their petite size. This limited-edition sampler comes with a elegant and portable candle carrier which is perfect for stashing your favorite candle in your toiletry bag. Trust me, it’s the first thing you’ll pull out to create your home away from home!
Ah summer…I don’t know about you, but my seasonal wardrobe is stocked full of sheer little pieces with delicate little straps. And if you’re anything like me, the first thought that comes to mind is “how cute” followed by “how do I wear this?” Well after a couple seasons of unsuccessfully trying to hide a nude bra underneath my summer tops, I’m here to say that the only solution is (1) start with a good back scrub and (2) wear a sexy, look-at-me black bra loud and proud.

I’ve been getting an odd compliment lately…at least odd in the sense that I’ve never had so many people comment on this before: I really like our glasses! Where are they from!?
“Really?” I would usually reply, “You really think glasses are cute?” I don’t know about other glasses wearers, but I’ve always had a bit of a complex about being in public in glasses. They always struck me as a little frumpy and unpolished, but compared to a long, hard day in contacts, they sure are comfy! And now people were actually complimenting me on them, saying they look stylish instead of dorky–I had finally found the right frames for me! READ MORE
