Tender Romance

 Processed with VSCO with se3 preset

I own way too many perfumes & am always looking for something new to add to my collection. One of the first fragrances I ever owned was Ralph Lauren Romance, so I was excited to get to try the newer version, Tender Romance. This beautifully packaged fragrance with blush colored hues smells just as lovely on. Ralph Lauren's Tender Romance is gentle and sweet with a hint of magnolia, but also warm, which allows it to be very wearable and simple, yet sophisticated enough any age.  I have already worn this several times while hanging out with N + he has complimented me each and every time. So I know if he loves it, its a good one.

If you are looking for a new scent this fall to cuddle up with, any purchase of a 3.4oz bottle of one of the Romance trilogy fragrances – the original Romance, the sexy Midnight Romance, or the new Tender Romance – you will receive a beautiful cosmetic bag complete with travel size eau de parfum and a body moisturizer, perfect for a weekend away. So grab your own bottle & cuddle up with Ralph Lauren.

Falling For Garnacha Wines

I am a wine girl all the way & look forward to a delicious bottle of wine that I can share with my boyfriend, family or close friends. When these Garnacha wines arrived on my doorstep, I could be nothing but excited to think of ways to enjoy them. I wish I had the time to have some of my close girlfriends over for a fun evening of wine tasting + catching up, but that just didn't happen with the hustle + bustle of life. Instead, I am going to share a little bit about Garnacha with you all, as well as my opinion on the wines I had the chance to try.

To give you a little back ground about Garnacha: Garnacha originated in eastern Spain during the 12-17th centuries and has recently developed a wide variety of wines over the last 20 years that are mixed with modern + old traditions. Garnacha is actually a grape and its wines offer everything from easy drinking to bold and classic tastes that can be enjoyed by anyone. These easy priced wines can be shared at a family gathering, a girls night in and even during the week when you want to unwind after a long day.


I am red wine girl & don't really dapper with white wine or rose (which is ironic, bc when N + I started dating all I drank was sweet, cheap wine typically out of boxes!). The Las Moradas is a full-bodied red wine with a hint of berry that was very rich and tasty. I could (should have) finished the entire bottle off in a siting, but I was a good girl.

The Tipicitat was another red wine, but on the lighter more fruity side. This would pair perfectly with a chicken entree or on a warm summer night.

Chic Summer Denim: 2 Ways

I live for cozy denim + pieces that can me through these hot Summer months and carry me into Fall. These pieces from Marks & Spencer have quickly become favorites of mine. I was highly impressed with the quality of the clothing & have been wearing them since they arrived. These Ripped Girlfriend Jeans are everything ... the perfect amount of rips & according to my Dad, I should NEVER pay for something with rips in them (HA!). But what does he know? (love you Dad!) I love everything high waist & the color is perfect for Summer or Fall. Plus, they are under $53!

Now let's talk about these Suede Wedge Sandals ... they are so friggin' cute + comfy! They add the perfect extra height to my 5'3 frame & love the lace up tie. Under $68 & worth every penny. I want the nude ones as well.

Who doesn't love lace. I have been gravitating towards all things lace & this Lace Top is no exception. The color is the perfect shade of blush/peach. Also, this sleeveless kimono has been dressed up, dressed down & worn as a coverup at the beach & under $53.
