adara {coconut oil}

I thought I would share a favorite beauty product of mine. I first discovered adara as a newlywed while browsing Anthropologie {they no longer carry this line of products} a few years ago. I was intrigued by the description on the fresh looking bottle:hair,skin,makeup remover. I thought I would give a whirl! The product has lasted me for many years and I have yet to need to purchase a new bottle. It leaves your skin feeling very well nourished. Check it out!

Leather & Wood {Swedish Hasbeens}

This week while shopping at the Saks Fifth Avenue outlet in Palm Springs I cam across a great pair of Swedish Hasbeens boots {sadly I did not purchase them}  & I can not stop thinking about them! Last night I wore a pair of clog sandals out for a birthday dinner {I am so bummed I did not purchase the boots}. Needless to say I have had this brand on my brain all week. I am also liking their flats. The quality of craftmanship & the beautiful colored leather leaves me yearning for a pair of each style in a different color.

Searching for a journal that is pleasing to the eye & will last forever. I discovered these beautiful vibrant recycled leather journals at Kate's {A favorite shop of mine in Soho}. Now I need to decide on a color, I am leaning towards a shade of orange. Which would you choose?

Now that it has finally warmed up over here {at least I hope the warmth is here to stay} I need a new beach hat {my 7 year old Roxy hat has got to go!}. I can not decide If I want to go with natural straw or something a bit more fun with color? Any suggestions?
