Springtime inspired drinks with Champy

April is finally here and it’s patio season! I can finally open up my screen door and let the warm breeze inside my apartment. I love to sit on my patio, paint my nails and soak up the sun.  Nice weather is the perfect excuse grab a drink after work with friends and I made two delicious springtime sparkling wine drinks for you to try this season.  Wine is the go-to drink at a get together and all of these ingredients make your drink so refreshing.

Sparkling wine fits so perfectly with appetizers and girl time and when you have a bunch of friends over you can never just drink one bottle of wine so it’s great that Champy is so affordable.  If you’re looking for a quick way to add some flavor to your sparkling wine I suggest adding pomegranate seeds to your drink. It’s sweet and once the drink is done you can eat the seeds. Scroll to the bottom to check out the recipes!  Thank you to Champy for gifting me this bottle of sparkling wine to enjoy.

Favorite Pins pt.8 – Stripes

 

Here’s to another month filled with my favorite pins on my Currently Coveting board. This month I’m all about Stripes and I have to admit I was a little jealous when I missed National Stripes Day which is J.Crews very own holiday. For now I’ll just pin the hell out of my Pinterest board and look for some cute tops to buy. My favorite is number 1. The color is perfect for spring and off the shoulder tops are still in right now.  It’s also on sale right now for $54.99.

I currently own three striped tops, two are blue and white and the other is grey and white. My mini collection needs some color and I think the yellow and red tops would be the perfect. My ideal go to summer weekend look would be the yellow top paired high wasted denim shorts and espadrilles from Soludos. Number 5 is my second option and I would pair it with a short denim skirt and sandals.  Which top do you like best? Let me know in the comments below.

Tops to invest in this spring

 

 

 

 

Bell sleeves are my favorite and these two tops are my go to shirts for spring. This pink Asos shirt is still available on the website for $20. Click here to buy one for yourself or check out other bell sleeve looks. I just got this top from Zara last week and it cost $49.90.  It’s cute right? Ever since I bought my yellow J.Crew coat I fell in love with the color.

Click the links below to shop and get your wardrobe ready for Spring! My favorites are the Soprano white off the shoulder top, and the DL1961 denim top. Let me know which tops are your favorites in the comments below.

 

Favorite Pins pt.7

Here is part 7 of my Favorite Pins series featuring items I’m #currentlycoveting for the Spring/Summer 2017 season.  I’m into high-waisted denim at the moment because I bought new Levi’s on Amazon for $26. The best feeling is finding something you love at a decent price especially when you’re shopping. Levis have always been my favorite brand and you can never have enough denim right??  I’m also stuck on this big sleeve, shaggy blouse trend that’s happening.

I think it’s a relaxed classic look without being too formal. Straw bags are a must for summer and I really like the bucket style because they hold more. I need a large bag to throw my swimwear and wine into for beach days. This spring/summer I want to constantly be in denim, carry around tote bags, and wear sandals. This set of pins is what I want my wardrobe to look like and I WILL make it happen!

Bake with me-Mini Oreo Cheesecake

After a few failed attempts I’m learning how to bake again. I found a recipe on Pinterest and I made mini Oreo cheesecakes. Cheesecake is so good and I LOVE Oreos so why not make something sweet to enjoy during the weekend. This recipe has 7 ingredients and I had most of them I had in my apartment which was very helpful. I’m not afraid to admit that I can eat two sleeves of Oreos in one sitting.  They’re the best!

The end product came out so good! I honestly thought I would destroy them in the oven but I succeeded at baking WOOO! It’s the perfect way to get some sweets in without feeling guilty. Well you might because the amount of cookies, butter and sugar you use is insane but insanely delicious! Let me know if you try this recipe! Trust me it’s so good. Obviously it’s not going to look exactly like the recipe photos from the link but I tried!

Ingredients – for the full breakdown click this link  – I followed the recipe from The First Year Blog 

Oreo crumbs

Butter 

Cream Cheese

Sugar

All about athleisure

 

I had the chance to visit Kit & Ace for a fit and design session about a week ago.  Athleisure has appeared in some of my favorite fashion magazines as the go to clothing option for models and I understand why. It’s such a simple and fashionable way to get ready in the morning. Imagine having workout tops and leggings that are stylish enough to wear to work!! The wave dress and the weekend brush hoodie were my favorite pieces from the session. The brush hoodie has a boyfriend fit and I’m really into the loose fit trend right now. What do you guys think of the wave dress? I might make this my go to summer weekend look! Want to see more post?? Follow me on Bloglovin to keep up with everything new.

Getting ready with Harry’s

It can take me over an hour to get ready and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. I wake up, shower, make coffee, do my hair, brush my teeth and all that good stuff. I have a strict morning routine I need to stick to and if I skip one step my whole day is off. One routine that’s very important to me is shaving my legs and finding the right razor is so difficult. I have sensitive skin so scented razors and shave gels make me break out and the cheap bulk pack of razors DO NOT work at all.

I was offered product to try from Harry’s and I was really excited to get a new razor in my life.  Men have the best razors so I knew I wouldn’t regret using this. My legs were so soft after the first use it was unbelievable. I can’t even describe how amazing this razor is. I swear right after I felt my legs and I said WOW out loud in the shower to myself. Right now Harry’s is running a shave club free trial  you just have to cover shipping which is only $3. Seriously ladies!! TRY IT! Also, how cute is my pup Tiger!! He’s so photogenic!

Loft Cardigan

Here in the cold, I can’t help but think about how close spring is. I noticed last week at 5pm it was still light outside. I’m ready for the sun to stay out longer and my skin to finally look healthy again with the help of some vitamin D. I keep thinking about this place here called Richie’s Slush and that’s what I’m looking forward to the most. Warm nights with a slush or some ice cream in my hand- my favorite flavor is cherry.

I really do wish I could just hop on the plane and be somewhere warm with a drink in my hand. For now I’ll patiently wait for the trees to bloom and warm weather to roll in. Shop similar styles below.

Jewelry fun with BaubleBar

 

Sweater: Ralph Lauren, Jeans: H&M, Slides: Chinese Laundry (DSW), Earrings: Bauble Bar, Purse: Prada

Photography: Nick Carter 

My BaubleBar jewelry came in the mail! I’ve met a lot people who can’t stop raving about the website so of course I picked up some stuff for myself. I bought the Flamenco Drop earrings in Periwinkle and the Celestial Ribbon Choker. I wore my Flamenco Drop earrings to High tea and that was all I needed to dress up my outfit. The right accessories can make your outfit 100% better and the Flamenco Drops are so fun and colorful.  I have my eye on the red Crispin Drops for the summer, they would go perfectly with my rompers and summer outfits.  I wore my Celestial Ribbon Choker a few times and I’m in love with it. I was so late to the choker trend but now I’m fully on board and obsessed.

On another note, I broke out my slides again! These were definitely an impulse purchase from DSW as is everything else I get from there. The brand is Chinese Laundry and they’re very comfortable. I’m still into the slide trend and that’s not stopping for me anytime soon. Before you head out, click the link in my sidebar to check out the website and buy some stuff for yourself. BaubleBar has some really great deals so click the sale link first.
