My mom is definitely one of my biggest beauty icons. In fact, almost everything I know about beauty, I've learned from her. How to make a simple at-home face mask to help calm down my sensitive skin, what to do if my nails became dry and brittle, how to brush my hair so that it would grow longer faster, she just always knew what to do and was a constant source of some of the best beauty tips and tricks I now use on daily basis! Though she's given me quite a few wonderful tips over the years, the one beauty advice I adhere to religiously is the nightly ritual. Every evening, before I go to bed, I take care of my hair, skin and body.

I don't normally wear maxi dresses, yet... every once in a while, if I happen to come across something particularly special like this off the shoulder mint dream dress for example, I don't mind making an exception! Perfect in every possible way, I really can't decide what it is that I love most about it, the color, the off the shoulder factor, or the movement ( you know how much I love dresses that move - another twirl-worthy favorite here & here ). Perhaps, it's the combination of all of the above, but whatever it is, I am completely and utterly obsessed with it at the moment!

Though I love Palm Springs ( our last two visits here & here ) and always look forward to spending a few relaxing days indulging in some pool time fun, when the temperature climbs up all the way to 117 degrees ( 47 degrees celsius ), even I, a person who normally loves the heat, find myself wishing for a slightly cooler weather:) Thankfully, out of the 4 days we spent in Palm Springs last week, only Thursday was this hot, and the rest of the time it was really quite lovely, so we've had ample opportunities to work on our tans!

Wearing yet another one of those outfits comprised entirely off all my current favorites! By now, I am sure you know just how obsessed I am with off the shoulder tops, but if an off the shoulder top also happens to be striped and blue, well... that's even better!
Another current obsession is blocked heels, and these Gianvitto Rossi sandals are definitely my favorite pair at the moment! Though they have a very easy-going, nonchalant appeal, the wrap around ankle detailing, combined with a really chic criss-cross open toe, definitely takes them into a statement-shoe territory, which makes them pair well with casual and dressy pieces alike! I also really appreciate how comfortable they are. Now, you know I wear heels a lot and honestly, I do sacrifice comfort if I happen to really like the way a shoe looks. But these babies are both, gorgeous and comfy! Naturally, I am obsessed!
