The sale section is better than ever with freshly cut swimsuits and cover-ups. Save them for your next beach get away. If you live on the west coast I’m sure you’re still at the beach!

Estee Lauder for Nordstrom

I was first introduced to Estee Lauder at very young age. My mom has been loyal to this beauty brand for as long as I can remember. The smell of ‘Beautiful’ and ‘White Linen’ are nostalgic to my childhood and bring back the happiest of memories. Up until a year and a half ago, I was strictly a tinted moisturizer fan. Then I read in Allure Magazine that Estee Lauder’s Double-Wear was a must-try. I went to Nordstrom and had them color match me, bought my first bottle of Double-Wear Foundation ( I wear Desert Beige) and I’ve been hooked ever since! I love the coverage. It’s not too heavy but it’s also build-able for more coverage. Since my foundation purchase I’ve added several other Estee Lauder items to my make-up bag including their Sumptuous Bold Volume Mascara (I’m obsessed), this navy blue eyeliner (such a cool color for fall) a universally flattering blush called Alluring Rose & the greatest brow pencil/highlighter! Right now Estee Lauder is offering a awesome gift with purchase! Spend $45 and get a clutch filled with products(value $165) including the lipstick I’m wearing here!

family picture outfits for kids

I’ve got family pictures on my mind. Totally not prepared and super thankful J.Crew and Crewcuts are offering 25% off full-priced items right now! I’m not a big fan my kids wearing matching outfits. I like them to be more individualized to fit their own personality rather than everyone look the same. Think more about colors that go well together rather than trying to match everyone.

Here are a few of my favorites from crewcuts that would make for a great photo!

Today is my last day in Cancun,Mexico. It has been the perfect weekend  get-away. When I was packing I remembered this DRESS was recently marked down to be 50% off. I’m so glad I brought it with me. It’s so comfortable and is flattering on all. When I leave paradise (75-80 degree weather) and get back to New York, I will wear my fall  booties with this dress. I can’t wait to share everything about this kid friendly resort we have been at the last couple days. If you are thinking about a family trip at the beach check out Dreams Riviera. You will love it here.

| Chicago |

While Jenna was in San Francisco, I was in Chicago with my girlfriends. Three days of sightseeing, eating, laughing and supporting my friends as they ran the Chicago marathon! Love my girlfriends in a BIG way. This was my second time visiting this super clean city and I loved it even more second time around.

XOCO- the chips and guacamole and the churro were the real winners of this meal.

Fred’s at Barney’swe ordered a lot. Way more than we could eat. Don’t miss out on the homemade quinoa granola/yogurt plate or the parmesan truffle fries!

Eataly- Hands down THE coolest grocery/food court I’ve ever seen. Owned by Mario Batali, this place is incredible. It a Chicago must see/smell/taste/experience!


The Bongo Room- I’ve spent a lot of time reminiscing about my meal here. It was really incredible. Highlights: White Chocolate and Caramel Pretzel Pancakes (my mouth watered typing that, no lie), Vanilla Brioche French Toast and the Tuna and Caper Club. Jenesey ordered the tuna sandwich. Seriously, it was amazing! Artichoke hearts, pickles, and egg. Sounds sketchy but next time I go, I’m ordering it!

Lou Malnati’s- deep dish pizza and the Matnati’s salad (make sure you like garlic and lots of it)

| What To Do |

Architecture Boat Tour- this was my favorite touristy thing we did. Loved being on the water learning about such a historic city from a guide who oozed Chicago pride. Such a great way to see the city in just a hour!

Skydeck at Willis (former Sears) Towerhead 103 stories up to the tallest building in America and see the view! If you’re feeling brave make sure and get your picture taken in the glass box. Tip:on a busy day, it’s well worth the $40 to get the express pass. You will cut your tour time in half!

The Bean- head to Millennium Park and take your picture next the infamous Bean. the reflection of Chicago’s skyline is beautiful. Close by is Crown Fountain. 50 ft. glass block towers/fountains with images of local Chicago citizens. I thought it was really cool.


Lisa- Blazer(30% off) | Tee | Denim | Studded Booties | Cross-body Bag | Glasses | Curlstick

Maury- Jacket | Cross-body Bag | Glasses | Jeans | Converse | Curlstick 

Shop- The Magnificent Mile. We actually didn’t spend much time shopping this trip. We had too much food to devour. However, the Magnificent Mile is a must-stop shopping destination.

Walk- We may have used a Uber driver a few too many times but we walked and walked and walked. I think it’s the best way to get a feel for what a city has to offer.

This is an outfit that I can wear every single day. It was so comfortable and warm! I’m loving oversized sweaters and ponchos this season. Wear them with skinny jeans because they are very oversized up top. You can wear booties or jump on the  knee high boot trend. I bought these boots a couple months ago and I wear them almost every other day. I’m getting really great use out of them. Happy Wednesday!
