February Favorites

Hello everyone! Long time no see. Life has been crazy these past few months, a lot of things changed in my life and it took me some time to adjust and get back to a normal schedule. I hope everyone is off to a great start for 2017! As usual time flies by and, let's be real, shopping is my favorite hobby so I do have many new items that quickly became my faves. So happy to finally be sharing these with you today.

FASHION

February was the month of romance and love which put me in a pink state of mind. Everytime I went shopping I came back home with pink items, every morning getting dressed I would reach for pink clothing, my nail colors, my perfume, I was obsessed I'm telling you guys. So naturally I've worn this beautiful lace top way too many times but I couldn't care less because I love it and it looks amazing on! This has to be a new all time favorite piece of mine.

BEAUTY

I had been wanting to up my skincare game for so long and the new year seemed like the perfect occasion to do so. I invested in a few key products that were recommended to me by some friends that swear they couldn't live without them. Now my morning routine is my favorite part of the day because of how amazing these creams smell but most importantly how well they work! My skin has been so glowy, nourished and hydrated, it's just incredible. I know I'll be raving about these products for a very long time, and even if they are quite expensive, they're totally worth the investment!

MAKEUP

I am such a lipstick junkie I cannot go a single day without wearing some color on my lips. I also love to change shades super often as well as finishes. I have been wearing mattes for the most part and these MAC lippies were my faves.

ACCESSORIES

I was not joking when I said I lived a very pink month. my Roses by Chloe perfume, my pink and gold Dior split sunglasses and my new Miu Miu mini wallet were my most used accessories this month. Also can we talk about that pink chocolate tablet from Laduree? It's rose flavored white chocolate. Best Valentine's Day chocolate ever. Seriously.

NEWIN

It's a bag. It's pastel pink (no surprise here). And I'm seriously IN LOVE! I found this beauty in Paris and believe it or not it was ON SALE! I have been saving up to buy this bag in this color for full price and when I saw it on sale I snagged it as fast as humanely possible. The smooth leather and structured shape makes it elegant and chic but the shiny rockstuds add a bit of edginess to it. It's just absolutely perfect in my opinion and I'm so happy to welcome it in my handbag family!

RANDOM

Last but not least my favorite new random addition to my room this month was the beautiful Rong Rong Devoe calendar. Each month has a beautiful original fashion illustration designed by Rong Rong herself and I find that it just adds so much glam to my office area!

DAAAAAAMN Sarah! Back at it with the favorites post! Haha well.. I haven't done a favorites post in a while, and that's simply because I was using all the same products I told you about in the last post. But this month with my trip to NYC and my friend Stephany coming to Guadeloupe and showering me with gifts, I have so many new products I am obsessing over and that I really need to share with you guys!

FASHION

White lace everything. On dresses, tops, shorts, bikinis. This month favorite combo was denim and white lace with hints of gold jewelry and hardware. Can summer come faster please?

BEAUTY

I think this month my stars aligned and the universe wanted me to finally find a perfect combination of skin care products that would leave me with perfectly hydrated and glowy skin. All thanks to a combination of four magical products: something old and something new, something borrowed and something blue.

An old favorite of mine that I rediscovered this month after a friend gifted it to me is the L'occitanePivoine Flora hand cream. I use it every night before going to bed on my hands and elbows and it makes me feel like I am going to lay down in a field of peonies for the night!

The new product I tried this month in my skincare routine is the SKII facial treatment essence. When I received this travel sized product from Influenster for free for testing purposes I was simply ecstatic! I had been eying it at Sephora for the longest time. In fact I really don't like wearing moisturizing face lotion when I'm in Guadeloupe and in general in the summertime because it's way too hot and I find that it simply makes my skin feel oily and sticky. That's my I love face essences so much, and let me tell you this one hydrates like no other! An absolute holy grail product for me. #myessence #skii

The product I borrowed from my mom (ok more like stole to be honest!) this month is the Khiels Midnight Recovery Concentrate, a nighttime facial oil with distilled botanicals that visibly restores the appearance of skin by morning. A couple of drops of this miracle worker on the face and neck before going to bed go a long way! My skin feels perfectly hydrated, smooth and nourished by the morning. I also noticed a reduction in my blemishes!

And finally the something blue is this delicious (not that I actually eat it, but I totally would if it were possible!) rose and mandarin lip balm. I have tried so many lip balms, from Baby Lips to Chanel, but no other lip balm comes close to this one. First off it's a very liquid consistency so it glides on to the lips perfectly and is very long lasting. Secondly, the smell is just absolutely amazing. Third, the packaging is adorable!

MAKE UP

As usual my make up favorites are lip products but I just can't help it! It's way too hot and humid here to wear a full face of make up so I usually just do my brows, line my eyes and put some mascara on and let my lips be the focus point! I rediscovered my love for NYX this month and literally all of these shades were on rotation.


ACCESSORIES

My go to bag this whole month was this little cutie pie by Luana Italy. Luana's bags mix classic silhouettes with a subtle edge and luxe feel. They are designed with a modern vibe and European spirit for the fashion girl always on the go. They are available at Saks Fifth Avenue or on their website (and you can get a 15% discount from anything on the LUANA site with the code SHOPWEARREPEAT ;) ).

Bag: Michelle mini satchel in white embossed leather by Luana (also love this black version)


NEW IN

You guys!! I haven't bought any new perfume in THE LONGEST time and that's because I have way too many (and I'm sure I'm not the only one!). But as soon as I smelled Chloé's Roses scent I fell in love! I almost bought it at the duty free at the airport while traveling to NY but decided against it at the last minute. And guess what I stumbled upon on a random T.J. Maxx run while in New York? This beautiful set containing the fragrance, a body lotion and a body wash! All of this for cheaper than what I would have paid the perfume bottle at the airport. If that wasn't a sign that I NEEDED to get it, I don't know what is then..

RANDOM

My favorite way to relax this month was diving into Love Style Life by Garance Doré! After having seen this gorgeous book on countless Instagram pictures I had to add it to my wishlist and my lovely friend Steph got it for me! I was so pleasantly surprised by going through it: it's so funny and lighthearted but at the same time gives you new ideas and a fresh perspective on so many aspects of daily life! It's divided in 5 main topics: style, work, beauty, elegance and love. I 100% recommend it to every single girl out there!

NYC Day 3

My final day in the city was all about friends and good times! It started with the most delicious brunch ever at Ladurée in Soho with my girls Yana and Audrey. There I got my ultimate favorite treat: french toasts with raspberry coulis and rose infused whipped cream. If those sound like heaven to you, I can confirm that they really are!

Bags: Chloé - Ring: YSL - Bracelets: The Peach Box - Watch: Marc Bale

Of course I couldn't leave Ladurée without a box of macarons to go!

After brunch and a little bit of window shopping in Soho, we headed to the upper west side. I love the vibe that the lush green spaces and renowned performing arts venues give to this area. The immaculate brownstones and impeccable storefronts lend this neighborhood a surprisingly village-like vibe.

My favorite shopping spots in the Upper West side are Century 21 and the Bloomingdales Outlet store. I always end up making one in a lifetime designer finds at ridiculous prices there! I love to go to Shake Shack if I'm ever craving burgers and yummy milkshakes and Levain Bakery's cookies are a must try if you're ever in this area!

My look for the day was edgy but comfy.

We wanted to get a couple of those delectable Levain Bakery cookies (the chocolate chip and walnut ones are my FAVEE!) but the line was insanely long! So we decided against it. When we got tired of walking and shopping around we stopped for cupcakes at Georgetown cupcakes. The perfect sweet ending to a perfect day!

What I got for Christmas 2015

Merry Christmas to all of you, my lovely readers! I hope you are having a wonderful day with your families and loved ones, eating tons of good food and getting mountains of good presents!

I love this time of year and I'm so excited to be back in NYC so that I can appreciate the beauty of the city during the holiday season. I can't wait to go ice skating in Central Park and admire the gorgeous Rockefeller Center Christmas tree and shop at the Christmas village in Bryant park.
In the meantime I wanted to share with you today a collective "What I got for Christmas haul"! I love seeing what people get for Christmas because it give me ideas for future gifts and just makes me happy seeing people happy!
 

Here's a little group picture for starters! These are all the gifts that I got in the month of December: some were opened before Christmas day simply because I have no self control!

This beauty was on top of my wishlist for the longest time and I don't own any nude/beige bags so I am so thrilled to start using it!

All the Chanel goodies I got: the Base Coat and Top Coat are essentials to my mani/pedis and I was running really low so I'm happy I got new ones! And how pretty is that Coco Chanel Christmas card that came all the way from the rue Cambon boutique in Paris?

New sparkly espadrilles!

And this gorgeous pearl brooch that I hunted down for almost a year before my mom actually found it!

My brother got me this amazing gift set of Aromatherapy candles by the British brand Parks. The rose and lavender ones smell so good!

These sunglasses are another piece that I wanted for the longest time but was always sold out everywhere! The Céline new preppy sunglasses are slightly smaller than the famous Audrey ones but still very feminine and elegant.

Love my new Daniel Wellington watch! It's so girly and classy and goes perfectly with my pink obsession! If you wanted to try them out you can use the code SHOPWEARREPEAT for 15% off your online purchase and free shipping worldwide! (expires on January 15th, 2016).
