Crochet and Gingham

I wore this to go downtown to dinner. We got there a little early so Mike and I took a nice little walk. I had gone to the restaurant before for a networking and wine pairing event. I was excited to try it again. I tried sea bass for the first time. And I remembered to write down the name of the wine that I liked. I love trying new wines but I'm so bad at remembering what I've tried and enjoyed.

I really like this elephant purse but it doesn't hold too much. Since the gingham is navy I thought it would be fun to play with texture by pairing it with a navy crochet top.

Weekend in Detroit

I went to Detroit last weeekend for a little father daughter trip. I really enjoyed it. The people were friendly and really seemed to love their city. I'm going to share the things I did and ate. This isn't a comprehensive guide I was only in the city for 2 days.

What I did
Tiger's Game- This was the reason we went to Detroit. My parents want to see all of the baseball and football stadiums. This ballpark is really nice and when we went it was photo on the field day. I've never been on a major league field before so it was a really unique experience. They also have a Ferris wheel and merry go round.

Detroit Historical Museum- This was a great free museum. The photo above is from their Streets of Old Detroit exhibit. It covers the history of the city and has a really cool grandfather clock. We found this just driving by.

Henry Ford Museum- We had a rainy day so we went to the Henry Ford Museum. There are a lot of cars but also some other cool historical stuff. There are a lot of things to do here they have a village too. We didn't do that because of the weather.

Heidelberg Project- This is an outdoor art project of a few houses. It's very unique.

Marvin's Mechanical Museum- This is a cool spot. It is in a strip mall in the suburbs. There are a lot of old arcade games, posters, and statues. You can play the games. There is so much to look at there.
What I ate
Downtown Dog at Tiger's Stadium- It's a hotdog with pulled pork, bbq sauce, and fried onions.

Colors- This is a restaurant training place. We loved the fried grits and french fries.

Rusted Crow- This place also makes it's own vodka, rum and moonshine so make sure you try a mixed drink.  I got the tenderloin tips and portabella fries. The tips were so tender and the portabella fries were so unique.

Bon Bon Bon- I make chocolate so I always like to check out the local shops. I got 5 pieces from Bon Bon Bon and I'm enjoying them.

Orange Florals

I wore this dress to go to Korean BBQ. We took my friend because he's never been. I really like Korean BBQ it's a fun food and I think every time I go I get better at chopsticks. I really like the hem detail on the hem.

Leopard and Dots

I wore this to celebrate my friends birthday. We did a few errands and we got lunch at a great Chinese place. I had a jacket with this outfit but I was such a nice warm day that I didn't need it. I'm thinking this polka dot skirt will be worn a lot this spring and summer. It's got a cute print and it's very comfortable.

VIB Sale Picks

It's time for the Sephora VIB Sale. It's 15% off if you are a VIB and 10% if you're a regular Beauty Insider.

Boscia Pore Pudding- I love this mask. I like that it is intense but not overly drying. I've done a few masks where my skin feels very thirsty afterwards. This mask is very good at removing excess oils. Regular Price $38

UD Vice Lipstick- I really enjoy this formula. The color I use is Firebird and that's the color shown. Cruel and Wrath are on my list. They are glittery red lipsticks. There are so many colors and finishes in this line you can find your perfect shade. Regular Price $17

Modern Renaissance Palette- I got this palette about 2 weeks ago and it's pretty much all I've been using. The colors are so pretty. I like that you can do pretty neutral looks or dramatic looks like halo eyes. Regular Price $42

Smashbox Always on Matte liquid Lipstick- I got a sample of this formula in a Sephora Play box and I was very impressed. It doesn't move and even though it is a matte lipstick it isn't super drying. The color shown is Out Loud.  Regular Price $24


Clarisonic Mia 2- If you are the type of person who likes to splurge during sales, I really reccomend the Clarisonic! It has really improved my skin. The Mia 2 has a timer so you know exactly how long to use it. I use it with the Purity Made Simple cleanser. Regular Price $169.00

Easter Outfit

This is what I wore on Easter. I wasn't planning on wearing this outfit but I think it turned out nicely. The colors are very spring-y. Mike and I had a fun busy day. We stopped at two of our friend's houses for a little bit and then went to Easter dinner with his family. I like how the ruffles act as a little bit of a sleeve. This top has a very similar style but in a different color.

Gingham and leopard

Lace and a maxi

I wore this to an event at work. I can wear this skirt a ton of different ways. I love wearing maxi skirts in the spring and summer. The skirt is LulaRoe. I like that the waistband can be rolled up or down.  This jacket is one of my favorite things that I've made. It is getting a little tight so it may be time to donate it
