Beauty, Bites & Bubbly

This past week I was honored to attend Beauty, Bites & Bubbly – an anniversary event for Pure Skin Care & Beauty Lounge in Pittsburgh.  Pure promotes “affordable, honest skin care with no attitude” by offering “expert and affordable organic facials, microdermabrasion, microchanneling, chemical peels, waxing, body treatments, and massage therapy”.  I mean who doesn’t love to look great without breaking the bank?!

This year, Pure chose to support the Pittsburgh chapter of the American Heart Association’s “Go Red for Women” campaign by donating 100% of ticket sales and a portion of product sales to the cause.  This movement is important to the owner, Michele, as her family has been affected by heart disease.

It was heartwarming to see so many women in red come together to not only support a local business but a great cause.  The evening was full of hors d’oeuvres, desserts, cocktails & fantastic swag giveaways.  I was able to socialize with good friends & make some new connections – always a plus in my book!

If you’re in the Pittsburgh area I would highly recommend stopping by this chic beauty lounge in Robinson.  I’ll be booking a facial soon, so stay tuned for results & feedback.

#OOTD – Girls Night Out

Well, it’s official, my first Girls Night of 2018 is in the books!  With the holidays being such a blur, my girlfriends and I decided to do our annual gift exchange after the New Year.  We put together a big spread of finger foods, drank red wine & caught up over exchanging gifts.
For our get together I decided to wear this new cold shoulder blouse I recently picked up at Marshalls, my distressed Old Navy Skinnies, cuffed above the ankle, and these Express booties from last winter.  I’ve included links to the styles I wore so you can shop these looks, or at least something similar!

My girlfriend Jackie lives right on Lake Erie so as you can imagine her views are breathtaking.  I just had to share this picture I captured Saturday night of the water covered in ice just before sunset.  I could sit by her window all day, such beautiful views!

Do you guys have any fun holiday traditions you share with your friends?  I’d love to hear what you do to celebrate!

Resale Shop Experience

If you’ve been reading my posts lately you know how much I love a good deal.  From Marshalls, to TJ Maxx and Target…I always seem to find something fantastic I can add to my wardrobe.  Not only are their prices super affordable but these stores make it easy to bring a very strong-willed toddler along for the ride 🙂

The other day, thanks to my Mother in Law, I was able to do some shopping sans the little man and came across a local resale shop called Style Encore.  I had my reservations since the only resale shop I’ve been to is Plato’s Closet which is geared towards a younger audience.  I have to say, I was impressed!  Not only were the employees friendly and helpful but the store was organized and brightly lit.

I tried on a few things and ended up falling in love with a top by Bar III for only $14 which I believe is carried at Macy’s.  I wore it for a recent date night with my dark wash skinnies from Marshalls, black pumps from Forever 21 and burgundy satchel from Stitch Fix.
