Getting into the (Miami) Holiday Spirit


Happy weekend everyone! I hope you all are enjoying it - it's so weird having weekends off like a "normal" person again! Although poor N - he's working a 24 hour shift today covering the eye hospital emergency room. But me and the girls have already cleaned the entire house (ok, most of the house) and gotten some Christmas shopping done - we even made it out to a reading of How the Grinch Stole Christmas! So much fun! 


It's been easier than expected to still get into the holiday spirit here in Miami despite not having the cold temperatures and necessary bundling up. The temperature is still a little bit cooler than it was in the summer months, and the key is dressing in easy layers! I can still get away with wearing a cute ankle boot (I shared these on my snapchat last week and so many of you wanted to know where they were from - they're by Sofft and on sale 25% off right now)! They've also got great cushion and a nice chunky heel that makes them totally reasonable for clinic days! 


Throwing on a light sweater still gives me that cozy feel, and usually it's needed in the air conditioned indoors anyway! If I'm out near the water the sweater is definitely necessary since there's always a breeze, and if the sweater isn't necessary, I always make sure to have a tank top underneath so I can take it off if need be! 

Boots  //  Sweater  //  Leggings  //  Bag  //  Glasses  //  Watch (get 15% off your Daniel Wellington purchase with code LAURALACQUER15)

On top of what I wear, the city itself has been getting dressed up for the holidays too! 
This is actually my hospital campus with lights that they put up!

This is the tree at the shopping center near our house! And that's Livi standing in front of it in the turquoise shirt if you can spot her!

I drive by these flashy palm trees every evening picking up Liv from preschool!

Some of my favorite lights in Coconut Grove (with my favorite people - this was on Elli's first birthday last week)!

It's been really nice, we're getting the house set up too! More on that to come in another post ;)

Black Friday Beauty and More

Checking in with another Black Friday/weekend post! Wanted to share some of my beauty picks (basically my entire beauty routine lol) as well as a few fashion picks, and what I actually bought on Black Friday if you're curious!

Beauty Routine on Sale
A couple of months ago I completely changed my makeup routine (well, my favorite mineral makeup was discontinued when I went to stock up again), so it was time to try something new! I converted to Bare Minerals and won't be changing anytime soon!

Right now you can get 20% off your purchase of $100 or more on their site! SO worth it if you're gonna try out their products since they almost never go on sale!

My current makeup routine that leaves my face GLOWING is:
Their original foundation (I wear shade golden medium), stroke of light eye brightener (in luminous 2 - it's not full coverage for undereye, but I find it actually brightens my face more than a typical full coverage undereye concealer would), and bare minerals blush (in golden gate). I apply the foundation with the beautiful finish brush and blush with their blooming blush brush. Other important keys not to forget are eyebrows (I use this NYX pencil that's so much cheaper than the Anastasia pencil I used to use - AND is currently buy one get one half off!) and lashes (currently loving this mascara, but I'm always on the hunt for a better one! Or strongly considering eyelash extensions again since they were so easy)!


Of course makeup is only as good as the skin underneath it, and for that my current regimen (which I'm SO happy with) is Lush coal face as a cleanser (the best face wash EVER), tea tree water as a toner, my cerave SPF30 AM moisturizer in the morning, and Korres brightening facial at night (have fallen in love with this treat at night and what it's doing for my skin)! I've heard Lush products only go on sale the day after Christmas, no black friday sales there unfortunately. But the cleanser and tea tree water are also available on Amazon (at a steeper price), but I always mention that because I love that I can use Amazon gift cards there or credit I've built up - maybe you can do the same!

Fashion Picks 
I love love love this olive tunic - and it's on sale from $42 to $22!

I have to always mention when Hunter boots go on sale - especially when it's the classic black and other colors that tend not to ever go on sale - they're 25% off now!

This weekender bag has always caught my eye whenever I see it on social media, and right now it's only $49! If I weren't being good and trying to buy things I really need this would definitely be on its way to my house!

And coats. I'm not buying any darn coats in this weather, but if I were still up in Boston these two would be mine! This adorable tan peacoat is only $30, and this grey wrap coat is just everything, and 50% off with code CELEBRATE!

What I actually bought this Black Friday (all online):
This double jogging stroller. Now that we're in Miami N uses our jogging stroller SO much more than he did in Boston, and we know he'll continue to be able to use it all year. Both girls love going on runs with him but he always has to pick one to bring along! Now he can take them both (which will be huge for me too)! I've been staring at it for a while and a little hesitant especially because of the price, but at 20% off I had to go for it - it will be a Christmas present! For those curious he currently uses this single jogging stroller and loves it (it's also almost 40% off right now)! I didn't go with the double version of this one mostly because I liked the look of the other one a little more, loved the zippered storage at the bottom and the easy recline feature, and the total weight.

This copper cookware set - it was on sale from $179 to only $79! It's still on sale but only $40 off (but you can still also get an extra 20% off with code DEALSEEKER).

This little patio set (times 2). We're in dire need of furniture for our back patio, and while this likely won't be the permanent solution, I think these will definitely do for now since I don't plan on truly tackling that space for some time - with these we can actually start spending time out there though!

These maternity ankle pants and a few of these shirts - the deal was buy one get one 50% off; plus an extra 20% off with code THANKS!

Hope you guys are having wonderful weekends with the ones you love!
