It is that time again, time for a huge sale over at Shopbop this week! Just like last time, here’s how it works: Spend $250+, save 15%, spend $500+, save 20% and spend $1000+, save 25%. Just use the code BIGEVENT15 at checkout!
Here are my top 10 picks from the sale:
I’ve been eyeing a pair of Karen Walker sunglasses for months and are at the top of my list for a pre-summer accessory addition!
Diane von Furstenburg always has great dresses and the Spring collection is full of beautiful lace and feminine florals.
For us, Spring Break means a fun family trip and this year we’re off to Disney World with my parents and my sister and her family for some much needed fun, relaxation and warm temps (see ya later snow)!
We plan on spending a good bit of time at the Disney theme parks on this trip and for those days, my hair go-to is a bouncy ponytail. This way, my hair is out of my face and still looks cute for all the photos we plan on taking during the trip.
Part your hair in half and pull to either side. Using your curling iron (mine is 1-1/2″) work from the back to the front adding curls and waves to your hair. I start a few inches from my roots and hold each section for a few seconds (or till it is hot) and work my way down to the ends, leaving the ends out so they don’t have too much curl to them. You just want to add body and movement, it shouldn’t be too tight of a curl.
I love how this style can translate from day to dinner too. When we get back from our day, I’ll just touch up my curls, if needed, add some more hairspray to refresh the style, and put on a pair of statement earrings and I’m good to go!

I’m back again on the World Market Blog, Discover, with some more home decor inspiration. As you may know, we just ended another New York Fashion Week, where designers are showed their collections for Fall 2015. I love keeping up with Fashion Week from afar and I always look forward to seeing what trends will be hitting our stores (and hopefully closets!) in the coming months.
Head over to the blog to check out my full article and how one of my favorite shows inspired some home picks from World Market.
This week, I want to share one of my Stay at Home Style must-haves: Tieks. I learned about Tieks at a blog conference a couple of years ago and they’ve become a big part of my style when I’m at home. I’ve never been one to go barefoot around the house and I love throwing on my Tieks to run around in the morning and get ready for my day. They’re so cute and comfy that I can wear them at home or on the go! My favorite is my newest leopard pairbecause they add just a little something to an otherwise simple outfit, but when the weather warms up, these pop pink Tieks are almost always on my feet (especially in my to and from Pure Barre trips!).
What I love most about this Stay at Home Style:
They come in several colors, textures and prints so you can go crazy or stay subtle, but either way, there is a pair of Tieks for you.
Tieks are really, really well made and very comfortable. I especially like that there is some substance to the sole and they don’t dig in on my feet at all.
They’re portable and foldable. I take a pair with me when we’re traveling so I can throw them on when we’re on an airplane or if my feet just start killing me and I need some stylish relief!
I am really excited to partner with Tieks to give one lucky the HSS feed reader a $100 gift card to their website. Just enter on the Rafflecopter widget below by Wednesday, March 4 and good luck!
I thought I would do something a little different with this month’s beauty update and share a bit more on my winter skincare routine. I have always been pretty lucky with my skin and have naturally clear and “normal” skin. I’ve really only had two times where I’ve dealt with breakouts: when I was pregnant with Jackson and last winter, which was our first one back in the Midwest. As far as pregnancy goes, there wasn’t much that worked for my skin, the hormones completely took over and I just had to do the best I could to conceal and prevent. The winter, however, was different and I started to use some products last winter that I’ve purchased over and over, and that have made a huge difference in my skin this year. Here’s what I’ve been doing and has worked really well for me to keep my skin moisturized and clear during these chilly, dry days:
Treatments: I try to add a little pampering to my Sunday night routine, as well as one night during the week. Just a few of my favorites include:
Patchology Energizing Eye Patches: They depuff, soothe and smooth and are quick (although you can wear them for longer) and easy to use. These are one of my favorite products!
Cle de Peau Illuminating Concentrate Mask: This one has a couple more steps, so I like to save it for Sunday nights. It is like a mini-spa treatment mask that leaves your skin super soft, bright and is great for moisturizing.
Sjal Kashmir Saphir Perfecting Mask: This one is a little bit more of a traditional mask cream that you put on for about 10-15 min. I put on a little of the Sjal Saphir face oil before and the combination leaves my skin soft and sort of calm feeling, it’s a great evening mask.
