BUILDING BLOCK // FLAT SANDALS


THESE SANDALS FROM BUILDING BLOCK?!?! 

LOVE THE SIMPLE YET UNIQUE DESIGN ON THESE. 
IT'S THE SLING SHOT LOOKING STRAP THAT MAKES THESE SANDALS (also available in tan) OH SO UNIQUE. 
THIS IS THE SANDAL TO ROCK IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR COMFORT, STYLE & EDGE.  

ON A SIDE NOTE... I GOT TO CHECK OUT THEIR SPACE THIS PAST WEEKEND. 
I'LL HAVE TO SAY IT'S A HIDDEN GEM IN LOS ANGELES THAT IS NESTLED IN CHINATOWN - SO RANDOM, BUT THAT'S WHAT GIVES IT THE COOL FACTOR

SO, IF YOU LIVE IN THE LA AREA OR ARE VISITING, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND STOPPING BY. AND MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR CAMERA READY BECAUSE EVERY SQUARE FOOTAGE OF THEIR SPACE IS PICTURE WORTHY!

PALM SPRINGS BLUES

CHAMBRAY DRESS - ALLI K | SWIMSUIT - MARYSIA SWIM | SUNGLASSES - GENTLE MONSTER | HAT - JCREW | WATCH - LARSSON & JENNINGS | RINGS - GJENMI

PALM SPRINGS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE GETAWAY DESTINATIONS. 
SO, WHEN MY BESTIE TOLD ME SHE WAS COMING TO VISIT I THOUGHT A LITTLE GIRLS ROADTRIP TO THE DESERT WOULD BE PERFECT. AND SO IT WAS!

WE STAYED AT THE ACE HOTEL (ONE OF MY FAVORITE SPOTS).
WHEN WE GOT THERE THE FIRST THING WE DID WAS HEAD OVER TO THE POOL, OBVIOUSLY. WHEN IT STARTED TO GET DARK WE HEADED BACK TO OUR ROOM AND SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN READY TO MAKE IT TO OUR DINNER RESERVATION IN DOWNTOWN. INSTEAD, WE DECIDED TO CANCEL LAST MINUTE FOR SOME ROOM SERVICE - ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA. SO, WE ATE OVER SOME GIRL TALK FOR OLD TIME SAKE AND EVENTUALLY FELL ASLEEP. IT WAS THE PERFECT ENDING TO THE NIGHT, IF YOU ASK ME.  

THE NEXT DAY, WE WOKE UP AND WENT BACK TO THE POOL FOR SOME LAST MINUTE "BASKING" AND THEN HIT THE ROAD.
 IT WAS A SHORT TRIP, BUT DEFINITELY MADE THE MOST OF IT. 

 THERE'S NOTHING BETTER THAN HANGING OUT WITH YOUR BESTIE WHILE BASKING IN THE SUN & SIPPING ON COCKTAILS WHILE TAKING SELFIES.

BEAUTY // OPI INFINITE SHINE

WEARING OPI INFINITE SHINE LACQUER IN 'SET IN STONE'

I TEND TO KEEP MY NAILS SHORT SINCE MY WORK CONSTANTLY REQUIRES ME TO TYPE - YES! I HAVE A JOB OTHER THAN BEING A BLOGGER! MOST TIMES I KEEP MY NAILS POLISH-FREE. WHEN I DO WANT A FRESH COAT OF PAINT ON MY NAILS, I'LL USUALLY GO FOR A NICE SOLID COLOR, BUT THROUGHOUT THE WEEK I'LL NOTICE THE POLISH CHIPS, THE COLOR WILL LOSE IT'S SHINE, AND IT STARTS TO LOOK DULL. 

I'VE REALIZED THAT WHEN IT COMES TO MAKEUP I TAKE EXTRA STEPS FOR LONG LASTING WEAR. BUT, WHEN IT COMES TO PAINTING MY NAILS, I REALIZED I SKIP THE MOST IMPORTANT STEPS FOR LONG LASTING COLOR AND SHINE! THAT'S WHERE THE OPI'S INFINITE SHINE COMES TO THE RESCUE!

JUST LIKE HOW WE PRIME OUR FACE FOR NICE SMOOTH MAKEUP APPLICATION AND THEN SEAL OUR FOUNDATION WITH POWDER. . .SAME GOES FOR OUR NAILS. THE OPI INFINITE SHINE PRIMER ALLOWS FOR A NICE EVEN COLOR ALONG WITH HELPING THE LACQUER (I'M WEARING SET IN STONE) REALLY STAY ON. THE INFITE SHINE COLORS ARE PIGMENT -RICH, EVEN ON THE FIRST COAT, BUT YOU SHOULD ALWAYS APPLY A SECOND FOR THE BOLDEST COLOR. THE LAST STEP, WHICH IS THE GLOSS TOP COAT, REALLY SEALS THE DEAL. APPLYING ONE COAT OF THIS GIVES YOUR NAILS MIRROR-LIKE SHINE FOR DAYS!

WITH THE TRIO OF OPI INFINITE SHINE PRIMER, LACQUER (COMES IN 30 SHADES) AND GLOSS, YOU CAN REALLY GET LONG-LASTING, HI-DEF GEL SHINE THAT WEARS UP TO 10 DAYS
