little loves

Hi Lovelies!

I hope you all had a wonderful few weeks while I have been laying low! It's been a while since I stopped in to do a little loves so we have some filling in to do! 

 One of my recent #maskmondays I used this new Yes To Carrots mask c/o and this new Organix Moroccan Oil hair mask I picked up at Ulta. Loved the face mask but the hair mask was so-so, it felt like a regular conditioner to me. Next time I will leave it in longer.  Of course you lovelies are always invited to join me on Mondays! I love to know what your using so Facebbok me, Tweet me, or Instagram me using the hashtag #maskmonday. See you tomorrow!

 I shared this photo this week on my Facebook page that has been making its way around the internet. Our favorite leading lady Barbie without make-up and flash lashes, and do I even see braces (?), or maybe her teeth just aren't whitened. Either way I just love the idea of showing this image because so many of girls in my generation grew up with Barbie as our image of beautiful, but no one even thought about what Barbie looked like before she was all dolled up. It just puts into perspective, that all of us, yes even BARBIE has her flaws. Of course I think she is beautiful either way, I mean come on that skin, those eyes!

 Over last weekend I went to NYC for a quick little trip for my dear best friend, Kae's birthday. We ate, drank, shopped, and had a great time over-all! Check out this to-die-for dress I picked up at Urban Outfitters. Valentines Day dinner? Definitely for one of my 7 weddings I have this summer! I will absolutely post pics of me wearing it and styled later.

 Remember forever ago when I won't that $100 to Amour Vert clothing? I FINALLY used it when they had their sale and got this adorable tunic dress I wanted forever. It is SO comfy, and SO soft!! You can absolutely tell its eco-friendly because the quality is really amazing and the fabric is so gentle. I can not wait to wear this in the spring with some brown sandals, cross body, and a fedora. 

Woke up early this mooring to hit up my local Target for the new designer colab, Prabal Gurung. Glad to see this one did much better than the disastrous Neiman Marcus one. I scored one of the items on my wish list, this killer tank. I adore the print and colors (ps. if you thought neon's were in last year, you just wait till this spring and summer).

My top item to score was the dress on the left but unfortunately the fit was all wrong on me. Any of the sizes that fit my chest were too big in the waistband and too long, the sizes that fit my waist didn't fit my chest. It was a pretty sad moment cause I do adore the dress. The quality and gentle flare at the bottom were wonderful. However a few other ladies in the fitting rooms at the time were also having the same issues so I was glad to know it wasn't just me. 

Then I remembered later today the dress on the right I had seen from Dorothy Perkins and loved but ended up thinking it looked too much like the Prabal Gurung dress I was planning to buy, so now of course I'll be getting that one! Anyway I love the way DP dresses fit me and the body con style is more flattering on me anyway! Do you lovelies like it?

Did any of you grab a piece of PG for Target? What did you get? 

So I have been on the hunt for this style sandal for quite some time! I wanted it in either a nude or black, and that weren't high-gloss. Of course I found a few I adored from Manolo Blahnik and Givenchy but I couldn't swing the price tag, so finally found this pair from ASOS. I don't own any ASOS pumps so I hope they are comfy! I love them though and think they are classic and will look great with a dress, or styled down a little with black dress shorts and a fedora. 

Do any of you lovelies own ASOS brand pumps? Any feedback for me?

Hope you lovelies had a great week! Next up this week in a "lovely little find + giveaway" post! 



  1. Yay birthday fun!! I got that PG tank top plus a few other goodies :) I love the DP dress though, it'll look great on you!

  2. Ever tried Boots Botanics Conditioning Clay Mask? I just picked it up @ Target for the first time and love it!

  3. Oh this post made me miss Target. I lived in Texas for 10 years and always loved a trip to Target, we don't have them in England sadly. I have bought shoes from ASOS before and had mixed results, but I have broad feet so always have fitting issues, at least with ASOS you don't have any trouble returning things.

    BTW just saw your GFC follow link below this post duhh couldn't find it before, so I will follow you on there too :)
