For Love and Lemons for Spring

I am absolutely obsessed with this line For Love and Lemons. I especially love this top from 
Modern Romance. It is so boho chic and perfect for spring. I love the colors and the embroidered detail. I paired it with some of my favorite jeans from Madewell and these adorable taupe booties!!! This outfit is perfect for running around town. I also think I'm going to wear it when I'm in Palm Desert for Spring Break. I feel like it screams "I'm on vacation". I hope you all look at the For Love and Lemons Spring line. I bet you will find the perfect piece!!! What are you all doing for spring break? Let me know and happy reading. Thanks to Gabi Wells for photos!!!!

Stevie Sister at Modern Romance Event

I just attended such a fun event at Modern Romance in Fashion Island. This event was to celebrate Coachella in the OC by featuring the Spring Collection of Stevie Sister 2016 and Vanessa Mooney Jewelry.  It was hosted by my girl Cassydy of @wewonderandwonder and Erin of @stylebythepeople.  I had the best time trying on some of the newest Stevie Sister pieces (which I will be sharing in upcoming posts--I'm absolutely in love with the newest designs and prints). I also have completely fallen in love with a necklace from Vanessa Mooney (you will die when you see it-- stay tuned). But of course as always, my favorite part of these events is visiting with my gorgeous blogger babes. These girls are absolutely fabulous and I always have so much fun with them. Thanks to Cathy Cordas for photos and Happy Reading!!!!

I was lucky enough to attend a taping of the FabLife with some fabulous girlfriends (stay tuned for future post) and Kate Somerville was the beauty guest.

Kate Somerville Goat Milk De-Puffing Eye Balm-- This sheer formula glides on with ease to reduce puffiness, hydrate, and reduce the appearance of crow’s feet and dark circles. 

Kate Somerville Daily Foaming Facial Cleanser-- A daily foaming cleanser that contains AHA’s and natural fruit enzymes to purify without over-drying.

Every Girl Needs A Caftan

Caftan-- Vici
Sandals-- Tori Burch
Love Necklace-- Don Roberto Jewelers

I am so excited that spring is finally here!!! I love wearing bright fun colors and prints.  It's a good time to put away those fall/winter jackets and bring out those maxi dresses. An alternative to a traditional maxi dress this season is the Caftan. It is so on trend right now and every girl needs one in her wardrobe. 

A Caftan is a loose, usually brightly colored waist-length or ankle-length tunic. The beauty of this piece is that you can wear it as a bathing suit cover up while you are lounging at the pool or beach, or as a dress, add cute flip flops to and you can wear it for a night on the town. I absolutely am in love with this one from Vici. It is so bright and cheery and just fun to wear. 

And let's talk about how cute my Don Roberto Jewelers Love necklace is? I think it is so classic and the perfect sized piece to pair with this caftan. When you are wearing a more busy print, always remember to add a very simple piece of jewelry. I have been wearing this necklace nonstop and have constantly been complimented on how delicate and beautiful it is. I am in love with this love necklace.. haha.  Thanks to Gabi Wells for photos!! Happy reading!!!!

Save Vs Splurge

Save Vs Splurge

Save Vs Splurge by everythingevelyne featuring a pendant necklace

I just am in love with rose gold this spring season. And these initial pendants are so on trend right now especially in rose gold. I absolutely love this version by Jennifer Meyer. It is so beautiful and even has diamonds inside the letter, but carries a hefty price tag of $1800.00.  I found this save version by Popmap for one third of the price!!! If you are looking to ask your love this spring season for the perfect gift, I think this initial pendant is a great choice. Let me know what you think. Happy reading!!!!!

Oscars 2016

Every year my girlfriend Rita (you must check her out (@detaileddesignsbyRita) helps throw an amazing girls night at my house to watch the Oscars. We have been having this viewing party for the past 10 years and it is just so much fun. I can't think of a better fashion event. I always say watching the Oscars is like watching the Superbowl for my girlfriends. This year Rita went all out. All of us ladies wore our favorite sparkles and ate yummy food, had delicious drinks while we watched this fabulous show!!! We all left with goody bags too!! Such a fun night and I can't thank Rita enough for her incredible decor!!! Thanks to Cathy Cordas for photos and happy reading!!!!

Smile Brilliant

Best Teeth Whitening

 I must share with you this unbelievable teeth whitening kit by Smile Brilliant. This product is a must have. I have tried other teeth whitening systems in the past, but none have been this easy and just as professional as going to the dentist's office. It is now available for home use and more affordable. I'm so excited to share my experience with you.

When I received my kit, I could not wait to get started. 
 The first step was making my custom fitting trays. I think my favorite thing about Smile Brilliant is that you have these custom trays that fit only your teeth-- not generic trays that barely fit and are uncomfortable to use. I combined the base paste and catalyst paste to make this impression (just like at the dentist's office).

I then put the mixture into the tray molds and put directly on my teeth, which made the impressions. I waited the appropriate time and then removed the impressions. I then let the impressions sit for 30 minutes and rinsed under cold water when it hardened. Then all I had to do was mail it back to Smile Brilliant in a pre paid envelope with a return card filled out. I then just had to wait for my impressions for about a week. This was so easy, I couldn't believe it!!!

I then received my custom trays and was ready for my first treatment application. I first removed the cap of the teeth whitening gel and applied a steady ribbon of gel on the inner surface of the trays (the part that comes in contact with the front of the teeth). I made sure not to overload with the trays with gel. A little goes a long way!!! 

I then inserted the trays on my teeth with a forward pressing motion to avoid dragging down the gel. The gel spread evenly over the front surfaces of my teeth. I let the gel sit on about 30 minutes for my first application, but went up to about an hour throughout the week. When my time was up, I removed the trays and rinsed thoroughly. I then rinsed the trays with cold water and dried it well. I repeated this for about a week and a half.

I did experience some sensitivity during this treatment, which can be very common. I used the desensitizing gel by Smile Brilliant. It replenishes essential vitamins and minerals lost during the whitening treatment. It significantly reduced this tooth sensitivity.  


How amazing are these before and after photos? My teeth are so white I just can't believe it. I highly recommend Smile Brilliant and think it is the best home teeth whitening product on the market.  Check out these testimonials, and You Tube videos
