I Got My Hands on the $25k Goodies Bag From the Oscars…OMG!

I Got My Hands on the $25k Goodies Bag From the Oscars…OMG!

So, now that the Oscars are over and done with…I FINALLY have a moment to reflect and share on the very very cool experience I was granted after receiving the one and only (very exclusive) Madison & Mulholland 2017 Awards Season Gift Bag. Now, can we just say…

  1. Attendees of the OSCARS received the same bag
  2. The gift bag is valued at $25k….$25k!

Finding out that I’d have the opportunity to get the bag & have a tiny bit of that Oscar experience was just mind-blowing! (not enough exclamation marks to express my excitement)

Now, a few days into actually owning what’s in the bag, I think it’s only fair that I share what some of my absolute favorites are…just so I’m not alone in this.

Let’s start off by saying that I am officially the owner of an Isabella Hearst handbag. The super cute bag is part of the “No Paparazzi” collection and it suits me 100% (SO Instagram worthy). 📷 #nopicsplease

Other current faves are these over-the-top and super comfy OM Shanti leggings. I wore them for the first time yesterday and was mind blown by how comfortable and loud they were…by loud, I mean SO MANY COLORS and I’m a fan!

…& because you’re not already wishing you had your own, I’ll continue.

I also became obsessed with these magnetic lashes from One Two Cosmetics…might I just add that they were also named “Best of Beauty Breakthrough” by Allure Magazine in 2016 and an industry game changer. I have yet to actually try the lashes but I’m thinking this weekend might be good for them (coming to my IG Story, stay tuned).

Finally, because I am a foodie on the DL (or not)…I am also very excited about the olive oil. You know this isn’t just any type of olive oil, it’s greek extra virgin olive oil made by The Olive Fruit. I’m thinking of having the BF whip something up for me very soon. 😋

Alright, now if you’re just as big on these products and goodies as I am, you just might be in luck! For the first time ever, what I mentioned (& so much more) will be available for you to shop. From now until March 14, you can shop at the Pop Up Shop in LA (Hollywood & Highland). #YASS! 🙌🏼

When Ferragamo and I Became One 🌹 [REVIEW]

When <b>Ferragamo</b> and I Became One 🌹 <i>[REVIEW]</i>

Not too long ago did I learn that one signature perfume is *cute to have, but not the way fragrances work.

You know what I mean…

Girlfriend: Oh, you smell so good! What is that? 

Me/you: Narciso Rodriguez, it’s going to be my 2016 fragrance. 

[walk away as if you’re the sweetest smelling thing on this earth] 

With seasons come fragrances and with outings come sazz.

Salvatore Ferragamo recently (February) released Signorina Misteriosa, and if you know what misteriosa means, then you get an idea as to what the scent is like.

Misteriosa = Mysterious

Signorina Misteriosa

The packaging for this fragrance is sexy, it instantly made me think of nighttime. It’s a daring fragrance with sweet scents of wild blackberry and orange blossom. There’s a hint of neroli, but it’s the black vanilla mousse that leaves a lasting impression.

Just think of it as your go-to fragrance for date night. LBD & sweet but sassy perfume.

Now, for a daytime and maybe a summer fragrance, Ferragamo also released (March) Emozione Dolce Fiore. Just imagine a scent for your day-to-day activities. It’s sweet but more lively with juicy bergamot, grapefruit and white peach. The addition of rose buds and peony make it girly, just enough. The packaging goes perfect with the fragrance; classy, girly, with a touch of life.

Emozione Dolce Fiore

So, for spring and maybe some summer, I’m doing Emozione Dolce Fiore during the day and sweetening it up with Signorina Misteriosa when I’m feeling like seducing my bae. (that rhymes ☺️❤️)

I call it “SUPER F L Y #friday”

I call it “SUPER F L Y #friday”

I’ve been on a mission lately. Mission to get my a** in shape! I’ve always been somehow active, I go running at least twice a week, I hit up hiking once every two weeks… I take a dip and go swimming (been doing that a lot more lately).

Whatever it is I have been doing however, has not been consistent and has most definitely NOT BEEN ENOUGH. Based on past experiences, I see results when I’m consistent. Long story short… TRYING TO BE CONSISTENT NOW. I’m back at the gym, sigNed up for some training, got some new Nike gear, so far so good.

“SUPER F L Y #friday” because while everyone is getting ready to check out and prepare for the weekend, I want to make sure my routine is still on track and I don’t lose focus of my goals (gotta keep aiming high) & let’s be honest, these kicks are “superfly”! (and super comfortable)

Shoe: Nike LunarTempo/ Running shoe

Rate: 9/10

Light, comfortable, just enough cushion for running indoors or on pavement.
