Some beautiful roses from my hubby last weekend.

Yummy gluten-free cupcakes to enjoy this weekend c/o of Hannah from Sweets & Celebrations

Beauty: Sephora VIB Sale Picks

The Sephora VIB sale is happening now and in stores through Monday, April 22nd and I wanted to share my picks with you! Most of these are old favorites that I've used in the past that I needed to replace [the Kate Somerville products and the Make Up For Ever Foundation] and the others are products that I've heard great things about and wanted to try. One of the great things about Sephora is that if something doesn't work for you they let you return it for a full refund... great customer service in my opinion! Use code VIBCHIC to get your 15% off this weekend here.

P.S. Don't forget to enter my giveaway with Jen of EllandEmm by Friday, April 26th! XOXO

Beauty: Spring Favorites

I'm always looking for great, new beauty products and wanted to share a few of my current favorites for spring. I very rarely switch perfumes and these two have been my staples for many years [I've worn Lolita Lempicka since 7th grade!]. For hair, I recently picked up Kerastase's Bain Thermique Shampoo and am excited to see how it works... I've loved all of the products that I've tried from the brand in the past! Would love to hear about your beauty favorites this season. XOXO
