50 Days Free

Hey ladies,
If you remember, before summer started I outlined quite a few goals and resolutions (outlined here) to keep me on track during my break from school, and make sure I was making progress in my life towards being a happier and healthier person overall. A few weeks ago I did an update on those goals to remind myself to stay strong, and it is that time again. This time a have quite a bit of progress to report! 

1) Fitness and Health: 
Summertime for me is synonymous with fitness. Due to bikini season, warm weather, and free time, my health and fitness seem to always take center stage during the summer. This year is no different. As you know if you have been following for a while, I am doing a post study-abroad cleanse for 100 days! I am currently more than half way done, and can proudly declare that I have been sugar-free for over 50 days. Along with that, I have quit eating red meat and refined carbs as well. Not only am I seeing results weight and fitness wise, but my body feels 100 percent better, my acne has cleared up completely, and I have more energy than ever before. Also, almost even more exciting than the rest, sugar is no longer a struggle to not eat, and the phase of constant temptation has past! Yay! If you are interested in following my fitness journey more in depth, or would like #cleaneating and exercise motivation, follow me @100DayzFresh via instagram or ask to join me on My Fitness Pal!

Peacock Details



Almost every time I go out, I try on fifty combinations, and end up in a LBD with strappy heels. Although classic is never a bad way to go, I like to change up my outfits and this green and blue skirt is the perfect thing. A great find, picked up thrifting a while back, this patterned skirt has become a staple closet piece. Dressed up with heels (featured here) or down with sandals and a cardigan, I love the versatility of this item. Matched with my peacock earrings (DIY by yours truly), I love the polished but Bohemian vibe of this look.
How would you style it?

Summer Glow

I used to be under the impression that once I found my shade or my sent, I was set for life. But if you are up on makeup of a fast follower of MUAs (make-up artists), each season seems to call for it's own routine, sent, and style. Just as clothes do, makeup cycles though seasons as well.

This summer, "glowing and dewy" are my go-to makeup buzzwords. And in this category a little goes a long way. In summer I prefer light makeup to give my skin a "natural" shine, and let's-be-honest, not melt off my face in the heat! Here are my current favorite products, and a few I'm dying to try!

Summer Makeup collection

My go to products this summer are :
1) Smashbox Photo Finish Primer
2) Tarte Maracuja Concealer
3) Smashbox BB Cream
4) Bare Minerals Ready Bronzer in The High Dive
5) Marylou Manizer highlighter by theBalm (doubles as a shadow)
6) Benefit Bad Gal Lash mascara
7) Born in Paradise by Escada
*My daily lip color is variable based on my outfit and mood, but recently I've been going with a mix of wine colored lipstick under raspberry gloss!

My summer picks to try are:
8) Bare Minerals The First Resort Pack- This beautiful multi-toned bronzer with some sparkle comes with the cutest fan brush and pink gloss. So cute!
9 & 10) Too Faced has been killing me recently with their new products! I've got to try some of the new melted glosses and coco-powder foundation. Loving their products recently!

Ok girls, that's all for now! What are your summer must-have cosmetics?

SF Carnaval 2014

Carnaval in San Francisco is an event I try to attend annually! It is a fun filled weekend, complete with Latin music, dance, food, and friends. It is a very enjoyable family party put on in the Mission each year I would hate to miss. I thought I would share a little photo diary of my time this year with you all. Although it's possibly a month late, better now than never!

Red Butterflies


Hey Ladies,  
It's been awhile since I did an outfit post, so I thought I would show off my favorite summer dress! While in Costa Rica, I happened upon a fantastic store, Luna May, in Puerto Viejo and fell in love with this red dress. Every time I wear it I feel like a model. Check out my Costa Rica recap here, and my boutique review of Luna May here. If you happen to be in CR it's a store not to be missed since their clothes are not available online.
