Hey friends!

I always joke about wanting to be a mermaid, but I’m kinda serious! I’m a tropical girl and always dreaming of tropical getaways, warmer weather, sunny days, sandy toes, salty hair & crave the smell of the ocean. I’m not too fond of the open ocean so I’m convinced I wouldn’t be a great mermaid, but a girl can dream right? Even though I love the ocean I also have so much respect for it. I love watching it from the boat, fishing is my jam and running my hands through the water while the boat drives away is my fave. Here’s a fun fact about me! My biggest fear is to get pinched by a crab… I’m dead serious, I hate those crawly little guys. I can spot those little suckers from miles away and when I do, it’s over! I become totally paranoid.

Now, let’s chat about this cute outfit! I’ve been dying to get my hands on a cute denim skirt. I find them so cute and fun for summer. However, I also haven’t worn anything that low cut in a long time so when I tried these on, I was little hesitant. I’m not a fan of showing my bellybutton, however, because I’m so tall, it’s kind of hard to hide. So anything high waist  is usually a go for me. This skirt is totally the opposite, it reminds me of my high school days when I used to wear a ton of Brazilian cut jeans. They were the teeny weeny low cut jeans. Those were put to rest a long time ago and I wasn’t mad about it. This skirt, although low cut, is pretty versatile. I’ve worn it with tees and sneakers, with a lace top and wedges and the last with this Maggie Ivory strappy crop top I picked up at Tobi, which is also available in red, black and sage. By the way, if you haven’t shopped this website, you’re missing out on the cutest things! They have such cute curated collections of summer must haves, latest trends, and basics at such good prices. I’ve scored the cutest things on here and have a cart full.

{ 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.

{ 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!
