Fabulous Friday


If you remember my recent giveaway then you know I've been loving Zara lately! It's so hard when there is one walking distance from my house not to pop in and take a peek.  This blush pink top reminded me of some of the items I  featured on my Shop Now: Shades Of Pink post.  I also loved the collar detail on this otherwise basic button up {similar looks here and here}. 


I thought the print on this peter pan collar dress was so whimsical and a perfect transitional piece as we head into warmer months. This studded collar shirt shirt is from Zara's March campaign and is my favorite piece! I can't wait to pair it with some girly pieces {like these pink pants} to add some edge.


This blush colored paillettes jacket definitely falls into the girls' night out category; I have a few trips coming up with my girlfriends and this will be the perfect addition to add to my carry on.  I also got this awesome leopard shirt after seeing it styled in their People lookbook.  I plan on wearing it with a pair of colored trousers like these.


Switching over to beauty products, I've been using Kate Sommerville products for more than a year but thought it was time to try something new.  I picked up Skinceuticals' Purifying Cleanser, Renew Overnight OilyHydrating B5 Gel and the Physical Fusion SPF 50 after having a friend walk me through the line.  So far, I'm really happy with the switch!


This Stila smudge stick is always in my makeup bag.  I saw the new smudge crayon version and picked one up in Kitten {which is also the name of my favorite eyeshadow from the brand}. It's the perfect highlighter for the inner eye area and lasts all day.


Liquid eyeliner has always scared me but after seeing this on the sales girl at Sephora I decided to give it a try.  The thin brush enables a perfect application to create anything from a thin line to a dramatic cat eye!


This Tarte set was free with my Sephora Beauty Insider points and it was definitely worth saving up  for! It includes travel sizes products of my favorite bronzer, their silicone-free primer and smooth operator clay finishing powder along with full sized versions of their lip tinit in Lively and a high definition eye pencil

I hope everyone had a great week! I'm going to try to post my next giveaway this weekend so be sure stop by and check it out, especially if you're in need of some new arm candy! XOXO
