Pink Refreshers

Happy Friday everyone! Yesterday evening I posted this picture on my instagram and couldn't believe the feedback I got there and on twitter! So of course I had to share this with you all and include the (super easy) recipe. I call these pink refreshers ;)
The "recipe" is as simple as this: just put ice in a cute glass, fill 1/3 of the glass with your favorite fruit juice (I used Punch flavored Juicy Juice this time, but I also love the berry and white grape flavors), and  top the rest with pink champagne! Add strawberries as garnish and enjoy on a hot summer evening! They're delicious! Remember to enter my giveaway if you haven't already! As always thanks for reading ❤

Vacation Date Nights

I finally finished my 3 month medicine rotation at the hospital and have 1 week of summer vacation before I jump into my 3 month surgery rotation. This vacation will be spent at home just relaxing and doing little things here and there. But look what draft of a post I found from my last vacation back in April!
Most nights on vacation were spent eating at one of the resort restaurants or ordering room service and eating on our balcony (where all of these pictures were taken), but a few nights were spent getting a little dressed up (just a little, it's still vacation after all) and going out somewhere. The long dress is from Old Navy and I wore it for a nice dinner, the jumpsuit (which I call my J.Lo jumpsuit) is from Target and I wore it for a fun night out dancing in Cancun!

Work It Wednesday No.18

Top, American Eagle
Pants, Forever 21
Shoes, Zara

Happy Wednesday! I hope your Wednesdays have been wonderful so far (or at least better than mine), I can't wait to see what you all link up with! I'm linking up a simple all-grey look (grey just might be my favorite color in the world, if it even counts as a color). 

So who worked it best during our last link up? You ladies all looked amazing and continue to blow me away with the looks you put together for work! My favorite look had to be Roni's from Style & Poise!

Not just because I'm a sucker for neutrals (which I am), or because I have an obsession with polka dots (which I do), but everything here is perfect! The shape of the top and skirt, the length of everything (perfect for the office), the pop of pink from her pumps and her demure accessories! Amazing job Roni, I want this entire outfit! Thanks for the inspiration ❤

Link up your work look with us below for the chance to be featured next month! Make sure to include a link back here! As always thanks for reading!

P.S. A few of you have had difficulty linking up - if this is you, just let me know through my contact form and I'll try and link your link up for you myself! Just send me your link! xoxo

Summer Essentials

Happy Wednesday everyone! Don't worry, Work It Wednesdays aren't gone for good, I've just decided to make the link up monthly instead of weekly. So stay tuned next week for July's Work It Wednesday and who worked it best in June's last link up! Today I'm sharing a simple outfit packed with summer staples: a sundress, a straw hat, sandals, shades, and easy hair. If only these pictures had the real summer essential: outdoors and sunshine!

Hat, JCPenney

Sherbet Nails

I finally did my nails yesterday! I've been neglecting them for too long with my long hours in the hospital. But here's a look I tried out perfect for summer - reminds me of sherbet or popsicles! Start with one to two coats of a peachy color and let that dry completely. Then, using a makeup sponge (or the nail polish brush if you have a fine touch) dab on a darker pink or orangey-red color. Apply a shiny top coat before it's completely dry to help everything blend a little more, and voila! Nails yummy enough to eat!

Summer Black and Green

Happy Friday everyone! Sorry for the paucity of posts lately, unfortunately between working ridiculous hours in the hospital, writing papers and preparing presentations, and studying for my medicine shelf exam, putting together posts (or even taking pictures) has fallen to the bottom of my to do list! But I hope you all understand the priorities! Hope you have fabulous weekends and thanks so much for reading!
