The Saturday Steal – Valentino Rockstud Look For Less

i found a look for less of every studded sandal in the Valentino Rockstud collection, including the ballerina pointed to flats, cage flats, cage heels, and gladiator sandals!

In my search to find a Valentio Rockstud gladiator look for less, I came across a look for less of the entire Rockstud collection, including the gladiators, ballerina flats, cage flats, and the cage heels. I am so in love with this entire collection, but can’t afford the designer price tags, so I’m so happy I found a few steals, all available in a variety of colors. Check out the links below to find each Valentino Rockstud look for less.

Valentino Rockstud Inspriation

The Valentino Rockstud is a fav of most celebrities, but those that keep a few in their regular rotation include Alesandra Ambrosia, Jennifer Lopez, and Ashley Tisdale.

Vaseline Intensive Care Healing Serum {A Review}

vaselineIntensiveCareHealingSerumReview2

Spring has finally arrived, yet my skin is still feeling the effects of winter. My friend swears by all Vaseline products, in particular their new Vaseline Intensive Care Healing Serum, so I was thrilled when they sent me a variety to try so I can share my thoughts with you all. In my Vaseline Intensive Care goodie bag, I received the Deep Repair, Advanced Relief, and Radiance Restore with pure cocoa butter. This brand new product brings the power of highly concentrated, healing ingredients to first ever moisturizing body care serum.

I’ve been using Vaseline Intensive Care on my hands every night before I go to bed and several times throughout the day for two weeks and I can already see a huge difference in my skin, cuticles, and nails. What I love about this lotion is that it’s thick enough to last, unlike other brands that seem to vanish right away, yet it feels very light and non-greasy. There is a bit of Vaseline jelly in each formula, so it creates a lasting barrier of protection and soothes my skin the second I apply it to areas that are a little stressed out from the cold winter months.

Available in 3 new variants:

  • Advances Relief – moisturizes to heal and calm severely dry skin
  • Radiance Restore – moisturizes to heal and restore radiance to dry, dull skin
  • Deep Repair – Deeply moisturizes to heal rough cracked skin

So far, the Vaseline Intensive Care Radiance Restore with pure cocoa butter is my fav because the scent is so springtime fresh! All Vaseline Intensive Care Healing Serums can be used daily all over body and are available at food, drug, and mass retailers nationwide for $7.99. You can also follow along at Vaseline’s Facebook page to keep up with all of their current and new product offerings.

On a side note, Vaseline {the original product in the big tub} is the only thing that cured my baby’s diaper rash, so I’m a huge believer in the barrier their products create to protect skin.

Friday’s Fab Five – Milkshake Recipes

Cake Batter Milkshake Recipe

Happy Friday everyone! I am SOOOOO excited that the weekend has finally arrived. My husband isn’t traveling this weekend, so I’m looking forward to a whole lotta R&R, and some good “do nothing” family time. And bonus that it’s Easter this Sunday! Big smiles over here!

It’s finally starting to feel like spring outside, also know at my house as “milkshake season”. We don’t frequent drive-thrus very often, but when we do, a milkshake is a must-add-on to our order lol. I especially love making milkshakes at home, and probably will more often thanks to a few delicious milkshake recipes, shared below :)

PS – two of the milkshake recipes below and “adult only” because you know I love myself a good cocktail here and there ESPECIALLY in milkshake form, although the alcohol is optional.

1. I can’t wait to give this super festive {3 Ingredient} cake batter milkshake recipe by Cooking Classy a try. I hope it’s as good as it is beautiful!

Bananas Foster Milkshake Recipe

2. For the most part, the only sweets I like is anything chocolate, with the exception of this bananas foster milkshake recipe. You literally make bananas foster and then blend it with ice cream and a little bit of spiced rum! Yum!!!

Oreo Cookies And Cream Milkshake Recipe

3. I have to agree with David at Spiced Blog, “This classic Oreo milkshake is quite simply one of the best desserts ever!”

Red Velvet Milkshake Recipe

4. Using a box of red velvet cake mix, Chocolate Chocolate and More {she had me at the name of her blog} whips up an amazing red velvet milkshake!

Mudslide Milkshake Recipe Cocktail

5. This mudslide milkshake recipe, by yours truly, is one of my all time favorites that I go to often. I took a traditional mudslide martini, blended with ice cream, and sucked it down with a straw. Proceed with caution… they go down quickly lol.

I hope you’ll share your favorite milkshake recipe below! Please also see my cocktail recipes where you’ll find lots of inspiration for your next “adult beverage”.

Sunday Funday Linkup – Best Of The Week

howToStyleTheBallerinaTrend

We’re so excited about the return of the Sydne Style A-Z Trend Guide, and even more excited that she decided to share in our #FundayLinkup. This week, she’s on to the letter B, so she’s showing us how to style the Ballerina trend and does so in a whimsical layered tulle skirt that will bring out your inner princess. Check out two ways she’s wearing the trend in the video at her series, featuring new episodes every Tuesday and Thursday. Thanks so much for sharing your style with us, Sydne!

Fab Fatale’s Linkup Favs

It was nearly impossible to narrow my favs down to only 5, but here’s what really caught my eye this week:

  • No Small Life shows us how to DIY a shiny silver side table for free. I had no idea what object she used until I read the how-to!
  • Tracy’s Notebook of Style shares her Friday Favorites, all under $25. I love light neutrals with hints {rather than pops} of color for spring!
  • Thrift Stories dressed up in gingham, {deemed the pattern of the season by most major fashion websites} topped with an amazing off white J Crew peacoat!
  • I believe I have all of these head-to-toe pieces in my closet, so now I know what I’ll be wearing on Monday. Thanks for the super stylish outfit of the day, Effortless Lady.
  • Ohhh, here’s another “look to love for spring” from my latest blog crush, Rag Trends!

The Saturday Steal – For Love And Lemons Antigua Mini Dress Look For Less

For Love And Lemons Antigua Mini Dress Look For Less

I was browsing Lulus.com the other day and found an exact look for less match of the beyond popular, amongst celebrities and fans of the brand, For Love & Lemons Antigua Mini Dress! The nude mesh gives the illusion that there is a lot less coverage, as though the lace is the only thing keeping this dress together. It’s super fun, flirty, and a look that may be a bit too dangerous for most.

The For Love And Lemons Antigua Mini Dress, available for $224, and the look for less, with a price tag of only $56, are both available in white, red, and black. I LOVE the way DailyLook styled it with a red high low maxi skirt!
