Life is a Beach!

I have shared "What's in my bag?" posts previously and decided to continue the trend with a beach bag edition.
I hope you enjoy the up coming weekend and get a bit of rest and relaxation in! 

Life is a Beach!
 Beach Day Essentials:

1. Large Beach Bag- I favor this Tory Burch canvas beach bag  as it holds all of my beach essentials.
2. Sunnies - from the Stella McCartney eyewear collection are chic and make a style statement while protecting my eyes from right rays.
3.Lip balm- EOS lip balm is a must for me on any and everyday!
4. Sunscreen - I am in love with Peter Thomas Roth's line of sun protection products the 
5. Phone & headphones the sassy "No Photos Please" case reminds me that sometimes we all just need to live in the moment and capture the memory and not necessarily a photo!

Savvy Tip: The nice thing about beach day essentials is that the double as sassy poolside essentials.

6.Beach towel - This Hello Sunshine towel is a fun necessity that showcases a bit of personality and will stand out in a crowd.
7. Large brimmed straw sun hat -Hello additional sun protection and style, yes please.
8. Water - Regardless of what brand you favor staying hydrated is especially important during warm summer months.
9. Reading material- I always have the latest issue of Lucky magazine on hand.
10. Flip Flops- I love the Salvatore Ferragamo Jelly Flip Flops the bows on my toes make me one happy beach bunny.

What is in your beach bag?

Too Faced + Trina Turk

Happy Friday!
You made it through another week and are now ready for the weekend and that in my book deserves a bit of sassy celebration!This past evening I had the opportunity to celebrate and get my weekend started a bit early with Too Faced cosmetics & Trina Turk.I am a huge Sephora fan and I am proud to say I have been V.I.B. for many years and a V.I.B Rouge member since the membership tier was created.Often I receive event invites and various opportunities as they are incorporated into membership perks. When I heard these dynamic brands were teaming up I knew I had to be present. This was my first Sephora V.I.B. event and it will not be my last. The event was held at the awe-inspiring Trina Turk Los Angeles boutique location.

Neon Highlights

Do you remember when you first discovered the wonder of a highlighter?
 The original neon and if you are anything like me you wanted to highlight everything from books to pages and notes. Later this highlighter fascination became a tell tale sign of my organizational skills as I grow older. For me my fascination with highlighters expanded when sassy new colors were released I was known in my collage courses for intense color-coded highlighted notes. As I just loved the attention to detail and overall color they provided.Perhaps a bit of foreshadowing for my current agenda and day planner obsession anyhow that is an entire post in itself. Back on track ...when I found this dress, yes another pleated maxi with coveted neon highlights I instantly fell in love. 
For this weeks look I hope you enjoy, take notes, and even highlight a few favorites!

This weeks post features wild life inspired accessories from a sassy leopard scarf to a foe python inspired clutch.
 Accessories play a vital role in this weeks look, as I am a bit guilty of shopping until I drop. However, when it comes to incorporating all of the accessories I purchase into various outfits that is something I am still working on. I have a ton of scarves both summer and winter. I love this lightweight leopard print scarf in particular when I spotted it in store I knew I had to have the piece for my wardrobe.

Lip Service:Lip Care

Lip Service

1. Surface Prep
This is an important often overlooked step to ensure that lips are exfoliated, hydrated, and clean. Surface prep minimizes peeling and flaky lips ensuring the perfect canvas.One of my best kept savvy beauty secrets for this step is the Fabulips™ 'Pout'-o-matic Spa Powered Lip-Perfecting System C/o Bliss. This lip tool starter kit includes a sugar lip scrub, which after proper application results in lips feeling pout perfect.

After all regardless of what sassy color is the "new black" this week or next a "little black dress" will always be a savvy go to for me. I selected to pair my classic L.B.D. with ultra feminine accessories that feature sassy bows.
