Sunnies & Swimwear

I've been dreaming of the beach today, and all the cute swimwear and accessories on my packing list for the next chance I get to escape!  So far nothing beach related is on the calender, so I am biding my time and doing lots of hiking and Pilates!  When my schedule opens up I will sure be ready...

Product Placement

I am not selling you Perrier in these pictures.  I am tricking you into thinking I am so that you subconsciously look at my accessories!  I thought it would be fun to do some modeling with my new best friend, Grapefruit Perrier.  The bottle is so pretty it was begging for a photo opp. 

Seriously though, is that how advertising works?  When someone is obviously trying to sell you something, it is off putting.  So I wonder if they distract us with something so blatant we look the other way at the real thing they are trying to sell...  like at the grocery store, the aisles are filled with sale signs and price reductions that are obviously gimmicky so you know you don't need the products. Yet when you get to the checkout you find all the most delectable and tempting creations sitting quietly, not asking for a dime.  This, my friends, is where you splurge.

Speaking of grocery stores, I received a compliment on my new Joie perfume today in Whole Foods.  That made me happy.  It was from a man who allegedly wanted to buy it for his mom.  It is a sad day when you wear a new perfume and no one comments, no?

Folle de Joie

One of my favorite fashion labels, Joie, has come out with their first perfume!  Its light and fresh, perfect for spring and summer. I love almost every clothing article they make, so I bought the perfume blindly when I found out, without even testing it!  It literally smells exactly like I imagined their clothing line would be-translated to a fragrance.  Not to mention the bottle is simply stunning.  I couldn't wait to wear it out with the girls!

Amalfi dreams

The weather has been warming up here in LA and has me dreaming of vacation time!  The Amalfi coast in Italy is on my European vacation hit list...it is so beautiful and the views and scenery are breathtaking.  My dream is to stay in the Sirenuse hotel in Positano.  If I could sum up my ideal coastal getaway in pictures, here it is!  I hope all my dreams come true :)

where is your dream vacation?
