If you guys follow me on Snapchat (Simply_Sona) or Instagram, you know that KB and I had recently taken a trip to Chicago. It was our first time visiting the city and we were so excited to explore! We had originally flown in for some meetings, but decided to extend our stay through the weekend!
About 7 years ago, I received my first classic Chanel handbag. I remember wanting this bag for such a long time – two years to be exact! At that time, I didn’t feel right spending thousands of dollars on one handbag. I understand the reasoning behind the pricing; Chanel bags are intricate and carefully made, with pristine leather and hardware. I just couldn’t stop thinking about it. Since this Chanel bag was pretty much THE only thing I could talk about, my family got sick of listening to me. So, for one of my birthdays, they got me this handbag. It was so thoughtful of them and it still remains to be my absolute favorite handbag. Side note, since I got the medium size classic bag, the price has gone up by $1,500.
A few weeks ago, my friend Angie asked me to help decorate for her baby shower in Hollywood. I was so excited to help; we did a lot of D.I.Y’s and crafting, and if you guys saw my Snapchat (Simply_Sona), you guys saw all the cute things we made! Most importantly guys, I was in charge of making the main flower arrangements. You guys know how much I love having flowers in my apartment! It brightens up the mood and smells so good. So why not share my secret? It’s a fun activity to do with your girlfriends, moms, daughters, so grab some scissors and flowers to get started!
If you guys follow me on Snapchat (Simply_Sona) or Instagram, you know that I was in Cabo last weekend with Pür Cosmetics. I was one of the lucky influencers who got invited to join the Pür team in Mexico for some weekend fun. KB and I were so excited to go back to Cabo since the last time we visited was right after he proposed to me. ♥ I was also excited to test out my new camera (Canon 5D) and shoot some of my outfits from the trip.
We’re a couple weeks into January, and how many of you have kept your resolution so far? I know I’ve been having a tough time, especially since I spent my weekend in Cabo… but it’s a work in progress! Diet is a crucial part of feeling good and staying in shape. It’s so important to eat the right foods that are nutritious for you; I’ve been doing my best to cook often instead of going out to eat and I thought I’d share five of my favorite healthy recipes to wake up to. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day so make sure you spend some time every morning to eat healthy and start your day on the right track.
I’ve noticed that a lot of the hot beauty looks lately have all featured one similar element: a strong lip. It’s no longer just about strong, statement eyes which call for a neutral lip. From the purple lip, to the black lip, to the oranges and pinks of springtime, I love a good statement lip and I think it works for everyone. So one of the lip products I thought I’d review today is the L’Oreal Infallible Pro Matte Gloss.
One of my resolutions is to be more organized with my makeup collection, and I started going through my drawers this past weekend. As I was cleaning, I realized I had a lot of favorites from last year. I wanted to share with you my list so you can also try them out! These are products that I used often in my daily makeup routine, most of which you might recognize from past videos. I have a video talking about each product, which is right down below! And to make it easier for you guys, I compiled a list of all the products mentioned in my 2015 beauty favorites for the blog post.
