I decided to show you guys my outfit that I wear over 40 hours a week, my scrubs! Some of you guys may already know but those of you who don’t, I’m a nurse in Labor and Delivery and I’m just about done with Master’s in Nursing this May. When Estee Lauder approached me to try out their Double Wear Stay-in-Place foundation and Double Wear Stay-in-Place Powder…I knew exactly how I wanted to put it to the test! I work 12 hours shifts that involve running around, sweating, taking off and putting on surgical masks…well you get the picture! A foundation and powder that can hold up after all that definitely deserves the creds. A lot of the times when I get out of work (like the day I actually shot these pics), I usually have plans to grab a quick mid-week dinner with my fiancé or cocktails with my girlfriends (if it’s Girls Night Out…hehe!). Since I get home around 7:30 or 8 pm, I really don’t have much time to retouch my makeup. So having the Stay-in-Place powder worked out perfect for a quick refresh! I am so happy to know I can rely on Estee Lauder to really “stay-in-place” and keep me ready to go from work to play. If you are on the market for a new foundation, especially for the warmer Summer months, I definitely recommend you try Estee Lauder Stay-in-Place.

In case you are curious, my shade is 1C1 Cool Bone and I have Combination Oily to Dry skin and it held up beautifully and did not make me oily or breakout at all! I also got the perfect color match with their unique iMatch system which scans your skin to make sure you get the perfect color foundation and powder to match your unique skin tone.

What is LiketoKnow.it?

Happy Thursday beauty girls! We are almost at the weekend! I can’t wait since I will be heading down to the Keys. If you follow me on Instagram, I’m sure you guys know I love it down there. My fiancée and I stay with our good friends in their house in Islamorada. It is the perfect “stay-cation” if you know what I mean.

Anyways, just wanted to take a second and orient you guys to LiketoKnow.it. I am sure many of you guys have seen this already on Instagram and that weird little link that looks like: www.liketk.it/uyH6 below many of your favorite bloggers pictures.

If you are a little confused on how it works, it’s super simple. To get all the outfit information from the Instagram picture, you first have to actually go to the website liketoknow.it and register there first. It takes two seconds. Promise. Then after that, when you “like” the photo on Instagram, the outfit details will be sent to you in an email. Side note: It does take about 20-30 minutes sometimes for it to actually be sent, so just be a little patient. It will get there, double promise! If you are still having issues, like I did, I went to my spam and noticed the emails were being spammed! Ugh! I hate that! Anyways, as soon as I fixed that, BAM! my emails started coming with all the lovely outfit details from all my favorite bloggers!

This is how it will look when you open the email from LiketoKnow.it:

Then from here, you would be able to click on the any of the items below the picture and it will take you straight to the product. If you are STILL having issues, you can also copy and paste the funny looking link from the Instagram picture you like (ex. www.liketk.it/uyH6 into your browser, and it will also take to the photo (like above) and you can shop products from there too! Believe me, when there is a will, there is a way!

Hope that helped clear up any questions you may have had about LiketoKnow.it. Let me know below if you have any other questions/issues! Have an awesome day guys and happy shopping! I have been keeping an eye out on Instagram for some over-the-knee boots that don’t look too “stripper-ish” if you know what I mean. Let me know if you spot any cute ones!

Essential Sweaters for Fall…

There are definitely some cute sweater trends this Fall and I am loving every one of them.  Although it is still very warm here in South Florida, I am looking forward to my trip to NYC in November for Thanksgiving break so I have been on a sweater hunt. There are so many cute options out there, but I thought I would show you guys my top 5 favorites I feel are on point, and still very classic.

#1. The layered look

Sweater by J. Crew (find it here)

Ok how awesome is this idea? You don’t even have to layer and feel like you’ve gained an extra 5 pounds putting your sweater on! I love this! This red one is stunning, but they have a brown and a navy on sale now with the code PICKASALE. Guess what I’m doing…?!?!

#2.  Acrylic

H&M Sweater (find it here) 

Probably my second favorite trend right now is the acrylic sweaters in the pretty pastel colors that are everywhere, yet still hard to find in my opinion! I found this one at H&M the other day and snagged it right up!

#3. The statement print

Leopard sweater found here

Of course every girl needs leopard in their life, and why not a leopard sweater to complete the collection? Love this one!

 

#4. The long cardigan

Long cardigan found here

I am loving that the long cardigan is back and in full force. I love this one because it is on key with the super hot color right now for fall. It’s grey if you didn’t know already! I also love the length, I feel this length could compliment anyone.

#5. The wordy sweater

Screen Shot 2014-09-28 at 10.37.04 PM

Sweater found here

I just can’t get enough of top with a cute saying on it, am I right? I have this one in black, but also loving this cute yellow color. It’s also on sale for $34!
