Things I'm Loving!!
Now, let's talk about some things I love. I think I will recap each month with my newest loves & obsessions. So for the month of March, I present to you the following- just for you, my shopaholic friends- no thanks needed☺

JIMMY CHOO PARFUM

I love this parfum!! 
EXCLUSIVELY AT SAKS. Imagine femininity, luxury and style bottled. Introducing Jimmy Choo, the fragrance. Expressing an aura of strength and beauty, glamour and confidence, it is inspired by modern women. Luminous green top notes, a heart of rich and exotic Tiger Orchid, and lingering sensual base notes of sweet toffee and Indonesian Patchouli leave a sensual memory on the skin.


What it is:
A moisturizing treatment gloss infused with revolutionary technology to plump lips instantly.
What it is formulated to do:
Achieve maximum volume and brilliance for a truly stunning pout. This formula contains tiny, dehydrated, marine collagen micro spheres that absorb instantly and seek out the body's natural moisture. As soon as the spheres become rehydrated, they plump and hold onto the moisture they've collected, creating a mild "swelling" of the lip tissue. The result is fuller, smoother, perfectly plumped lips in seconds. Results can last for up to 48 hours.
I am so in love with this stuff!! I have been looking for a gloss with a splash of color.{that lasts!}








I love the way it makes my lips tingle.Just enough color andshine.
I have Blush.I just ordered the conditioning stick with SPF in Berry!
{stalking Mr Brown again this week, what else is new??}



OPI: Y'all Come back Ya Hear??

no explanation necessary....
fun spring color!

These are like a countertop cellar for your garlic & potatoes. 
It's ceramic, dark & well ventilated.
A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.
{never have I seen them in the store, I ordered mine}
I am amazed at the life of my galric & potatoes.
Definately worth the $$!
and loss of counter space









The women's Fly Split Short features a streamlined design and lightweight fabric with a split leg for a full range of motion and comfort.•P.R.O. Transfer fabric provides optimal moisture transfer with a superior hand feel
•P.R.O. Direct-Vent liner with Minerale™ for breathable, antimicrobial protection
•Laser cut Direct-Vent panels provide superior ventilation
•Flattering wide waistband with flat stretch drawcord for superior comfort
•One easy access back envelope pocket
•Reflective elements for low-light visibility
•3" inseam (size medium)


I have these in both colors, I wish they would come out with more...
HELLO...
do you hear my Pearl Izumi??
Now that it's warm I can wear them. I bought them in winter when they first came into my running shop. If your short, these are even more of a score b/c the are short! 
we wear short shorts

Moroccanoil® Curl Control Cream is formulated for naturally
curly and wavy hair with an advanced technology that offers intense
conditioning and detangling properties. Curl Control Cream delivers
exceptional movement to hair while enhancing natural curls and
offering optimal hold, adding volume, control and shine as well
as providing humidity resistance.

Curl Control Cream is a no-fuss, all-in-one styling product that
replaces the regular cocktailing of several styling products such as
leave-in conditioner, gel, mousse or anti-frizz.
  • Controls frizz
  • Enhances curl
  • Conditions curls
  • Optimal hold
  • Better control
  • Builds body and texture
  • Softens and shines hair
  • Perfect for all climates

I have many MorrocanOil products & this is my newest. I have the other curl cream but I think I like this new released one even better.

The smell of MO products is so yummy.
I use their shampoo, conditioner, hairspray {have it not sure why, lol}
the Oil, hair brush and another curl cream. 
I can honestly say the texture of my hair has changed since I started using these products.


{YES I HAVE CURLY HAIR, who knew?
thanks to my CHI!}

Well, that's a few things that I am loving these days that are newly discovered.
I hope that you all have an awesome Monday!!



FYI:
If your a Home Tour Tuesday groupie,
it will resume fresh in May!
We are taking the week of April off.
Shannon & I have some things in the works 
and will have a great calendar full of awesome themes up soon,
stay tuned y'all!

  1. Eeeekk! I won, I won, I won--yippie!!! So fun, since I never win ;) Thank you for such a fun giveaway.

    Soo many things on today's post that I heart. That OPI polish is fab. I've got Taz Devil Made Me Do It right now, and it is such a fun color, too. Must try the shorts-thank you for posting them, I seriously need new ones. And those WS canisters are genius.

    Hope you have a good day, sweet friend!
    XOXO,
    Hannah
