Beauty: Arcona Skincare

Gal Meets Glam blogger Julia posted some of her skincare favorites on Instagram a few weeks ago and I had to look into her recommendations - she seriously has the most beautiful skin so I figured she must know what she's talking about! Arcona is a skincare brand that that uses live, active ingredients and contains no parabens, perfumes, dyes, or fillers. I recently picked up a few products at Nordstroms but if you are in the LA area they also have a studio in Santa Monica where they do facial treatments [hoping to make it over there one weekend soon for a review].

Planning on posting a new Closet Clean Out Sale next week... have a great weekend! XOXO

Recent Outfits

Outfit 1 Dress: NBD | Shoes: Zara [old; similar herehere] | Earrings: Melanie Auld [on sale!] | Bag: Gucci Soho Disco in Black [not pictured] | Outfit 2 Shirt: J.Crew | Shorts: Rag + Bone Boyfriend in Rebel | Belt: Forever 21 | Shoes: Marni  [on sale!]

Two recent outfits, one for a special occasion and one for everyday errands. I've gotten so much use out of these Marni sandals and these shorts this summer [tip on the shorts: size down! I sold my regular size through my blog and bought a size smaller for this fit. Even though they are a "boyfriend" short they run large]. Tomorrow I'll be sharing a few new favorite beauty products if you want to check back! XOXO

Fabulous Friday

Oops, just realizing my Friday post never went through... Labor Day weekend we had some friends over for a wine tasting night which was a lot of fun and a nice excuse to use our wedding crystal! My girlfriends and I have been following The New York Times Wine School Column and red zinfandel was next on our list to try. I wasn't able to find all the wines that were recommended but picked up some substitutes... we tried Predator Old Vines Zinfandel, Ridge Lytton Springs 2011, Frog's Leap 2009 and The Prisoner Saldo. I can honestly say I've never thought to order a glass of zinfandel at a restaurant before our tasting but now I have a new appreciation for it [of the bunch, the Saldo was my favorite!]. The column started in March so check out all the back posts here. Hope you had a wonderful weekend! XOXO

How I Spent My... Labor Day Weekend

We spent Saturday through Monday at the Bacara Resort & Spa in Santa Barbara and had a great time... it was our 5th year visiting and just as much fun as always! We pretty much just relaxed and stayed at the hotel except for one trip out to have a casual dinner at Freebirds [where they make the best nachos ever]. Friday night we hosted a wine tasting night at our house and I will share a little recap tomorrow... Hope you had a great 3 day weekend! XOXO
