    Paris Lookbook

    I am so excited to share some amazing brands that I had the chance to wear during my latest trip in Paris. When I started looking around and shopping for Paris I knew that I wanted to bring items that had a classic and feminine feel to them. These three brands exceeded my expectations! Joanie Clothing has a wide selection of apparel ranging from dresses to trousers. This brand has some stunning prints with a vintage flair. The collar detailing on this Zooey Swan Collar dress was adorable, and FYI its on sale now.  I loved how the colors and prints popped in photos. Sign up for their mailing list to…

    Museum of Ice Cream: San Francisco- An updated review

    UPDATE: This past month I was back at the Museum of Ice cream in San Francisco and noticed some MAJOR changes. They have added some more Ice Cream themed rooms and completely done away with a couple of OG’s. Never fear- the sprinkle pool is still there. The Banana  Swing alcove was still my favorite photo stop- thankfully that has stayed the same. New Room ALERT! The popsicle room is no more. I honestly prefer this new attraction ( to see the original room scroll below to my post from last year). The Circus Animal snack room made me feel nostalgic. I remember eating these by the handful as a…

    Rosé for the week

    I am a huge fan of unicorn hair colors and am always toying with the idea of dying my hair pink or purple. I went to Target to pick up  some wrapping paper and a gift card and ended up leaving with a cart full of nonessentials- the typical result of my shopping experiences there. The most interesting product I couldn’t wait to try was a shower spray that promised to give rose-gold hair that washed out after 2-3 shampoos. I was intrigued. Kristin Ess Rose Gold Temporary Tint did not fail to disappoint! This is an in-shower product that you use on damp hair and leave in for 1-2…

    One Top, Multiple Looks

    Follow my blog with Bloglovin Possibly the most used piece in my wardrobe at the moment is this colorful button up. This piece has been appearing on my Instagram in a variety of ways for the past month. It’s colorful, light weight and perfect for summer look books. A must have for any wardrobe is a unique print, or unexpectedly colorful button up. A non-basic button up is incredibly versatile, and has the ability to be reused and styled in multiple ways. This top served as the centerpiece for this rainbow look. I really wanted the decal on the shorts to pop without being overpowered, the primary colors in the top really did…

    Bold skirts +Basic tops = a Winning Combo

    As anyone who follows me on Instagram, in my @soundsdarling account, knows I love mixing prints. Lately for summer I have been relying heavily on a few basic tops paired with bold printed skirts or rompers. All of the looks below that are still available have been linked at the end of this post. I am OBSESSED with this Blondie top. The red-orange text really pulled together with the stripes on the skirt. As you can see from my next photo this skirt has been getting a lot of use. Its fully lined, but is light enough that its comfortable in this July heat. Same skirt, different shirt. There was…

    My Favorite Highlighters

    For me highlighter is my must have makeup product. There’s something so satisfactory about finishing a makeup look up with some sparkle! I’ve rounded up the ones I use on heavy rotation in my makeup case! From top to bottom This Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powder is my latest obsession. It has a pinky champagne glow and is incredibly layer able. Compared to the BareMineral highlighter its shine is on the micro level (AKA it doesn’t look like you have obvious strokes of glitter. This is the highlighter I used in the photo below. When I want highlighter to strobe (or insanely pop) in a photo I take a tiny scoop out…

At the fit shop you try on the apparel and find your fit before purchasing online and having it shipped to you free of charge.

    5 best sunscreens for sensitive, acne prone skin

    I am one of those individuals that has a combination of super pale sensitive skin that will break out for pretty much any reason. When I add a new skin product I get a rash, the weather changes- acne, and sometimes both. For this reason I am VERY picky when it comes to my SPF. Here are my top five SPF containing products that work with my skin type. If anyone has some other favorites please feel free to drop their names in the comments. 1) Hawaiian tropic silk hydration is my daily sunscreen moisturizer that I use on my body- not my face. It’s SPF 30, so I mainly…
