This look is a little more serious than what I usually post, but I was in the mood to go a little darker for Fall. I wasn’t daring enough to change my hair color though! This look is so practical and comfy though. I’m thinking I might wear it to travel to NYC next month. This knit sweater from Darling Clothes is literally the cutest and yummiest sweater I own. I know it will not be leaving my side when it starts cooling down. Have a great weekend beauties and always thank you for reading!

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

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!

Top: Nordstrom | Pants: Forever 21 | Shoes: Forever 21 | Necklace: c/o Culture of Cali | Clutch: c/o GiGi New York | Lips: Bobbi Brown Roseberry | Nails: OPI Taupe-less Beach

I went on a little Forever 21 shopping spree a couple days ago. You think I can still count it as a “Happy Birthday to me” present a week later? Well I couldn’t resist when I saw these awesome high-waisted jogger pants and to-die sling-backs. They aren’t the comfiest of darlings, but you know pain is beauty. I was so excited to finally accessorize my new layered necklace from Culture of Cali, I am in love with it. Adds a little edge, but still simple. I also recently added this lip color to my collection. I really think I will be wearing it non-stop for the Fall. Don’t forget to enter the BeautyBooked Giveaway going on now, contest ends next Monday! You could win a $50 gift card towards any salon or spa service! Good luck! Thanks for reading beauty girls!

P.S. Just had some dental/oral surgery done yesterday, so I am out for a couple days. As soon as I feel better and my chipmunk face goes away, I promise more outfit posts!

P.S.S. I wanted to take a sec to explain what @liketkit means on Instagram. I have had a couple readers ask me about it telling me they are not sure what it is or how it works. It is an awesome way to get all my outfit details straight to your inbox just by liking my picture on Instagram. All you have to do is register online at http://liketoknow.it and that’s it! After that, anyone that has the “@liketkit” or hashtag “#liketkit” under their Instagram picture, you can get their outfit info straight to your email. Hope that helps!

Fresh new lips…

From Left to Right: Bubble Gum, Coconut, and Lemon

I don’t know about you guys, but I always forget to take care of my lips. I guess there is so much to take care on the rest of my face, I really don’t pay them much attention until I put my lipstick on for the day and realize “Geez, my lips are so dry and chapped!” (enter sad face). Not. Cute. At. All. I have been using these scrubs for the last couple weeks now and been loving every moment we have together. I have added the lip scrubs as a part of my nightly routine after I get out of the shower. It has been a great little treat since they smell and taste so delicious you can even lick it off! Some of the natural ingredients included are: Pure Vitamin E, Organic Honey, Organic Jojoba Oil, Organic Coconut Oil, Natural Flavoring, Natural Coloring, Castor Sugar, and Brown Sugar. You can find these scubs here and here.  My favorite flavor is Coconut…it immediately takes me to the beach drinking a Pina Colada. Let me know if you guys try them out…I know you will be  obsessed just like me!
