Summer Daze

Just a quick photo of my makeup, using Sedona Lace 88 metals eyeshadow palette, and my go-to lipstick, MAC "Hue". I've been obsessing over anything pink or coral this summer and can't wait to share some more of my outfits posts wearing these colors! 

Jerrid and I have had an interesting day today. We headed off to the beach and when we noticed the watersports rental booth we started to get some ideas. We decided to hop on a jet ski since Jerrid has never had the chance to ride one, despite living here in South Florida now for 3 years.  We had a blast and plan to do it more often. We even decided to have a beach day and rent jet skis, paddle boards, kayaks, and much more with our friends, family, and wedding party in October a few days before our wedding to make fun memories with the ones we love. 

I hope you all have an amazing Memorial Day!


Sunshine and Wedding Bells

My best friend is married!!! It has been such an exciting time for my family and I as we witnessed two people, whom we consider to be family, join together in matrimony. I am honored to have been a part of my best friends wedding and to be there for her special day. I wish them all the best!!!

We spent 2 days spoiled rotten up in the Presidential Suite at the Boca Raton Resort, enjoying room service, and a gorgeous view of east Boca Raton and the ocean. Breathtaking.

We started our with the bridal shower at Melissa's home. Tears were shed, and memories were shared. It was beautiful and we all got to spend time with the bride before she began her life as a wife. 

We then moved on to dinner with the crew at Benihana. So much fun! Our hibachi chef was hilarious and had us all giggling. It was so much fun. 

The rehearsal dinner took place at Cielo's a beautiful restaurant and bar at the top of the Boca Raton resort. It was absolutely beautiful and the food was delicious! We had a blast!

The wedding was a dream ceremony! I couldn't snap any photos because I wanted to enjoy the wedding and attend to my duties as a bridesmaid, and Jerrid was a groomsmen, so the photography was left to the professionals, but once the photos are sent to us and the video has been made, I will be sure to share them. I can't wait!

A few photos that we did get...

If you're ever at the Aventura Mall, do stop by the MAC store and say hi to Jason! He's an AMAZING makeup artist. He did our makeup for the wedding. (Photos coming soon)

What a perfect day!

Congratulations Melissa and Fernando! 
I love you!!!

Fresh Metal

I had a blast this weekend! My good friend Marlene and I headed down to South Beach to hit up the pool party at the Shore Club. We hung out under our cabana and laid out to catch some rays as well as catch up with each other. Afterwards we grubbed on some sushi at NOBU. It felt so good to get down to South Beach and spend some quality girl time with a good friend.

I wore a metallic makeup look to NOBU using my LORAC palettes that were given to me as a gift from my nieces on my birthday last October. I can't believe that I still haven't blogged about it, but it was the holiday gift set that LORAC released at some time during the end of 2011. I should do the swatches soon as I do use the products often and love them! The set came in the most adorable packing; a silver jewelry box with glitter all over it. I love it!

It's been a while since I've done a good makeup post so I felt a little rusty taking the photos. I'll be sure to get back into the hang of things soon. I went on a little makeup shopping binge at the local drug store and Sephora a few days ago so be on the look out for those posts to come up soon as well.
