Home Tour: Jersey Shore Chic

This charming waterfront home from the latest issue of House Beautiful, instantly caught my eye.  Located on Barnegat Bay in New Jersey, the designer Joe Lucas, chose lovely shades of blues and neutrals to compliment the bay side views. There are coastal influences through out this chic summer home, my favorite being the compass rose painted right on the ceiling.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Top Beauty Picks

1  //  //  3  //  4  //  5  //  //  7  //  //  9

I'd been meaning to do a summer beauty round up for a few weeks now, but I'm glad I waited because not only are some of the newer products I'd been hoping to try (like this blush and bronzer set and this sleek, chic vanity mirror) on major sale right now, but some of my all time beauty favorites and  must haves are all marked down as well (like these, this and this). Here's a break down of what I'm looking to buy and what I already own AND love!

1. NeuLash: This is a great deal for this lash enhancing serum. I've used this product on and off for years and can't believe how well it works! My lashes are noticeably longer and thicker. Was thrilled to see this product as part of the sale.

2. The Beachwaver Pro: I bought this last year during the sale and love how easy it is to use and how well it works to create curls, waves and texture.

3. Rouge Coco Glossimer Trio:  I've got a thing for pretty light pink lip glosses. While I already own several, I can't resist adding a few more to my ever growing collection. These three by Chanel look right up my ally.

4. Sugar Lip Set: Been using these lip balms for years and I love them.

5. Simple Human Mirror: I've been eyeing this beautiful vanity mirror for quite some time now.  The mirror comes with a smaller mirror attachment that provides 10X magnification (the regular mirror provides 5x magnification). It also provides various lighting effects. If any of you own this, I'd love to get some feedback. Do you love it? It's currently in my cart....

6. Bronze and Blush Glow Set: I'm in need of a new bronzer and I like the fact that this one comes with a pretty pink blush as well. The compact is so chic, excited to try this out.

7. Slip Pillowcases: I was very excited to see these silk pillowcases on sale! On a whim, I bought one a few years ago, and now I'm an absolute convert. I own several, so there's always one on my bed. These pillow cases are great for extending a blow out, keep hair tangle free and are so gentle on my sheet marks in the morning.

I started using the SK-II products a few winters ago due to some very dry skin issues. I've been a fan of the masks and essence formula ever since. Love them!

9. Space NK Best Of Collection: This looks like such a great way to try out some fabulous new products. I already own the dry shampoo, and the lip tint and cleansers here are two I've been so curious about.

Home Tour: Bay Area Beauty

Back in 2015, I posted a "style stalk" on Evars + Anderson, a full service interior design firm in the San Francisco Area. So I was very excited when I received an email last week with these photos showcasing this beautiful new home.

Turns out, in addition to this lovely house, Nancy and Dimitra, (the ladies behind Evars +Anderson), have recently launched MoxieMade, a new line of "ready-to-live" furniture that offers fearless yet timeless pieces at a do-able price point. A great new source for ideas and furniture, they've got some very pretty pieces - I especially love this blue and white ottoman.

Kitchen Crush

Kitchen renovations are always a hot topic. And, this particular kitchen remodel might be the hottest one I've seen in a long time. First spotted over on Domino, my jaw dropped when I saw all the beautiful new details designer Ali Budd incorporated into this fabulous space. Complete with a breakfast room, full bar area and pantry, this sunny, chic space offers so much.


Weekend Wrap Up

Happy Friday! After several weekends up in Rhode Island, we're staying home this weekend. As much as I love getting away to the beach, there are so many projects here at home that need some attention - planning on tackling my to do list and hitting up a bunch of online sales as well...
