I feel like pinterest has set me up with unrealistic shopping expectations. Its like every time I go on pinterest I find the cutest stuff but when I try to find where to buy it....it is nowhere to be found. I wish when you pinned something it ended up in your closest instead of staying on a virtual board making me pine for it even more. The good thing about pinterest is it has turned into more of a style inspiration guide to me. I find different looks and try to mirror some of my own pieces to match how other people wear them on pinterest. Since I am such a jewelry nut I literally could spend hours looking at all the different things pinned on there. Below are some of my Friday favorite finds on pinterest that have me drooling. Hope everyone has a good weekend!

For anyone that knows me I have pale skin. Typically I will fake bake to get some color and not look sick. However the thought of getting skin cancer scares the hell out of me. I follow a lot of beauty bloggers and recently found a good response from the sunless tanning product million dollar tan. I had figured I would give it a try. I had ordered a small bottle (4oz) for $22.00 bucks including shipping. The small bottle will give you around 8 tans which is pretty good considering if you go somewhere to get a spray tan its $20. They also offer a extreme tan but because I am so pale I didnt want to look so shocking I was going for more of a natural look. The color comes on immediately which makes it easy to tell what areas need more or less. The product comes with a blotting sponge to rub out any streaks. The sponge came in pretty handy. The tricky part obviously was by back. I had Rob apply the tanner to my back. There is no way anyone could do there own back and make it look good so another person is definitely necessary. We joked as the tanner was being applied that I would come out looking like a ompa lompa. Another tricky part was my face. I was very hesitant to put any of the product on my face. However I knew if I didn't I would have a super white face and tan body. For your face it is suggested to mix the tanner into your daily moisturizer. I did that however I think I need to apply another coat to my face today. I would rather it be light than shocking on my face at work. Overall so far I am pretty happy with the product. I don't know yet how long this tan will last but I will give you a update once I know more. And the good thing about this product its vegan and not tested on animals which is a huge selling point for me.

Spring is officially here (big smiles). I hate wearing pants as werid as it sounds I hate it. And because I have such hate for pants I literally have like 3 pairs of work pants. I wear skirts and dresses 90% of the time unless I'm being a lazy bum.....then pants are my go to. This past week we hit up a couple spring training games (go cubs). Enjoying the weather outside.....Eating outside every chance I get. I'm in the process of rotating my closet which can be scary. So far the things that I have tried on from last year still fit (thank God). I have been continuing to work out. I have been trying different work outs trying to figure out what I like best. I continue to come back to the elliptical and yoga combo. I'm beyond excited we ordered a new couch for the living room this week. We decided that we are going to start buying piece by piece towards home improvements. I am now looking for a table to go behind our couch. We were talking how we dont have very many random like nick-nacks or picture frames and no where to put them. So that is going to hopefully be my next find. Below are some pictures from this past week.
