{ Messy Twist Ponytail #FancyHairFriday }

Happy Friday sweet friends!

For today’s #FancyHairFriday I have created this messy twist ponytail. This is a perfect go-to hairstyle for those days your hair is a little dirty, but either you don’t have the time to wash or going to the beach and pool. I sprayed a little bit of Amika Perk Up Dry Shampoo and Voila!  Read More…

{ Simply Stylist Miami Event }

A very special thanks to Simply Stylist  and Coppertone for sponsoring such an amazing event and for the generous goody bag. Loved all the products and can’t wait to share some with my readers. #Sponsored #AD #Advertisement

Hey fancy friends!

A few weekends ago there was a lot of buzz about the Simply Stylist Miami event at the Eden Roc Hotel in Miami Beach with the new Coppertone Whipped lotion. Oh Em Gee… this formula is soooooo good and goes on so smooth.

The event was fun. We got to really connect and mingle with some of our favorite internet friends as the sun was out and so was every single cool blogger. Everyone gathered at the garden area and seemed to be having a blast while enjoying all the fun things to do under the tents. I got to get a mani by the LVX team and sipped on champagne and on delicious coffee while applying and learning about the importance of applying SPF.

According to SCF, sun damage is cumulative. Did you know about 23 percent of lifetime exposure occurs by age 18. No wonder when I turned  thirty I felt my skin had changed so much. If only I knew the things I know now back then. Where were all these fun learning events at? Lol…

{ Done In One || Striped Jumpsuit }

Hi there!

Did you have a nice long weekend? Michael and I had a chance to get away to Bimini for the weekend and Oh Em Gee, we had a blast. Didn’t realize how badly we needed to get away for a few days and recharge. I can’t wait to share the 10000 million photos we took at that beautiful Bahamian Island, but in the meantime you can get a sneak peek in my Instagram (@afancyaffair). Now, let’s talk about this adorable look I have going on. I have been really enjoying the whole stripe trend this season, the blue hues and everything in between. And even though I love to finalize my looks with gold jewelry, I’ve been gravitating towards silver a little more. So when searching for the right pieces, I found Touchstone Crystal, which offers a stunning jewelry collection, with each piece sparkling in Swarovski crystals. Cool right? I wanted to pick out a few pieces that can be worn on the daily and dressed up or down. I love a statement piece, but love daintier pieces even more. The necklace that I have on can be worn as a lariat or as a choker in the front and let the long piece hang in the back for those open back tops. The fact that the chain is so thin gives a sex appeal without being too much.  After looking into Touchstone Crystal, I found out that you can be your own boss and become a sales rep for this brand, or host a party at home for your girlfriends and earn hundreds of dollars in free jewelry by hosting a Touchstone Crystal party. Cool right?

What have you guys been up to this season trend wise? Would love to hear from you on the comments down below.

{ Pretty with Yellow Pompoms }

 

Hi friends!

How fun is dressing up for this season? I love all the vibrant colors, fun accessories like this cute straw bag and tassel earrings. Most of the looks/outfits I have been wearing lately are from my boutique- Fancy Boutique. I love to pick out items for clients and style each look according to their personally and I’m not going to lie sometimes they tell me they feel silly. We all have our individual style and that’s ok. I believe that getting dressed is the way you express your creative side to others. My favorite part about having the boutique has to be the styling part, putting each outfit together according to the occasion. That’s when my creative juice starts going and I feel fulfilled.

{ Everyday Bold Lip & Wing Liner Makeup || Clarins 3 Dot Liner }

Hey all!

You know those days that you just don’t feel like putting make up on, but want to feel put together? Well I have those days very often, especially to go to work. I take a ton of pictures daily, either for the blog or for the boutique, so looking put together is a MUST. For those days I like to focus on my skin, making sure it looks healthy and very glowy. Once I get the skin looking fabulous, I focus on the eyes and the lips. I add a simple winged eyeliner and bold lips. This is such an easy makeup look andgets all the compliments. Truth be told, I wasn’t good at doing a winged eyeliner, that is, until I met my match made in heaven – The Clarins 3 Dot liner. Oh Em Gee you guys! Read More…

{ Denim One Piece Wonder & What’s happening to #FancyP }

 

Hey all,

I just noticed that this post never went up on the blog! How rude of me…. lol!!

So, here’s a quick update on my little Fancy P. For those that follow me on IG (@AFancyAffair) and on other social media platforms may already know this, but I have spent this past weekend in and out of the vet and animal hospital with my little #FancyP. Penelope was crying out of pain early last week and I had no idea why. We started ruling out a ton of different things till finally I rushed her to the emergency vet hospital where they did extensive tests and she was diagnosed with IVDD. The Intervertebral Disc Disease in dogs is a condition where the cushioning discs between the vertebrae of the spinal column either bulge or burst in the spinal cord space causing a lot of pain. Penelope has 4 bulging discs which are pressing on the nerves and causing her so much pain that she wouldn’t event let us approach her. This disease can press on the nerve causing not only pain, but nerve damage and even paralysis. She was sent home with a bunch of medications, pain killers and anti-inflammatory and I was told to keep her isolated in a cage for 3 weeks. We have a follow up appointment in 10 days. Have you ever heard of this before? If so, do you know of home treatments that you would recommend? I would love to hear more about it as we are a bit desperate. I can’t help but feel bad for her and feel a little guilty for not being more careful with her. Michael and I have no idea when this happened, we just noticed that she was in pain. We think she may have fallen from the bed or couch, but also know that Penelope is so playful and is constantly running and playing around. Once I go back for the follow up appointment I’ll update you guys.

Please keep this little fur baby in your prayers!
