Beach Bound & A Winner!


Happy Friday, lovelies! Finally the end of the week is here and I couldn't be any happier because I'm heading out on vacation. We're renting a beach house on Fire Island for the entire week! It'll be a nice taste of suburban living for us city folk. Looking forward to basking in the sun, barbecuing and dining al fresco every night, long walks on the beach and finally getting the chance to use my new camera. Should be heavenly!

I'm not leaving you high and dry for the week though. I've lined up a great group of guest bloggers who will be filling in for me while I'm away. And who knows, I might even pop in from time to time :)

Oh and before I go I wanted to announce the winner for the MD Perricone Cold Plasma Giveaway. And the winner is......


Congrats Bella! Please just email me your address and I'll make sure it gets right on out to you. Hope you enjoy it! And thanks to all who entered!

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend and I'll be seeing you soon! xoxo

Oh how I miss beaches. These photoshoot doesn't help my longing, since it's beautiful. Now it's very seducing to just jump off an airplane and go to Bali. It's only 1/2 hour away from my city... :(

Oh Dawn - I'm back and you are leaving... Hope you are having a wonderful and relaxing time!
