pop sugar june must have

Received my first POPSUGAR Must Have Box for the month of June and couldn't be happier with the goodies that came in it! Literally feels like Summer in a box and I'm excited to share with you what came inside the signature pink and white package.

I love how the theme for the for the June Box was all about "Beachy hair, Citrus, Sand, Sun, Surf, Backyard bbqs, Relax, Unwind, Read, Stripes." All the things that remind me of Summer. With the POPSUGAR June Must Have Box I'm all set and ready for summer and trips to the beach!

'The One & Only' is the perfect summer read to bring along to the beach or poolside with the matching Turkish-T beach towel. (Also wearing Lollies ties on my wrist)

This Sachajuan lotion-- I'm completely in love with the fresh citrus scent and its clean aesthetics is going to look beautifully in my restroom. Probably my favorite item in this box!
Included: a Native Union gift voucher is one that I'm excited to use on this Tassel usb. They also carry unique wooden iPhone cases and accessories!

Lollies hair ties are super cute on the wrist as well as functional for your hair. These can even pass as friendship bracelets with the added gold ring detail. I love a black and gold combo.

it skirt

Skirt, 3.1 Phillip Lim | Boots, Rag & Bone | Sunnies, c/o zeroUV | Handbag, Proenza Schouler

Being a huge 3.1 Phillip Lim fan, I fell completely and utterly in love with this skirt. The plaid attached "tie" has not only been a trend but has made me reminiscent of my childhood tying jacket around the waist days.  It's made of a nice, light silk material that is going to be perfect for the spring-summer. The color way with the grays, navy, white and black make for a beautiful combination of the two prints, keeping it casual and chic.

food friday: oatmeal pancakes

Oatmeal Pancakes

It's been a while since I've posted anything food-related, but I recently discovered a healthy alternative to those good ol' sunday brunch pancakes and had to share.  I'm slowly jumping on to the health-kick movement with my regular juicing and now progressing to trying out healthy-alternative recipes.  I eat  oatmeal pretty regularly and I do like to indulge in Sunday brunches and breakfast foods.  This recipe has combined the two to satisfy my flapjack cravings and make them entirely guilt-free for me. Add desired fruit/toppings to your liking.

-Ingredients-
1¾ cup freshly ground oat flour (grind up whole oatmeal with food processor or vitamix)
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1½ tablespoons canola oil
2 large eggs
½ teaspoon vanilla (optional)

-Directions-
Pre-heat electric griddle to 375 degrees..
Add all dry ingredients to a mixing bowl and whisk together.
Add all wet ingredients to a 2nd mixing bowl and whisk together.
Add dry ingredient mix to wet ingredient mixing bowl and whisk till it just comes together.
Lightly spray your hot griddle with cooking spray.
Use a ¼ measuring cup to scoop the pancake batter onto the griddle.
I cook my pancakes 1 minute 45 seconds on the first side and 2 minutes 15 seconds on the second side for perfect pancakes, this may vary on your griddle.

Bon Appetit!

trapeze

Blouse, Nasty Gal | Coated jeans, c/o of 7 for all Mankind | Handbag, Celine | Shoes, Lulu*s

Getting into the groove of things again this year.  First outfit post of 2014 and I'm sticking to my basics.  I went with my classic color palette of black and white.  The Celine is probably the star of the show.  It's the perfect carry-all and I love its sleek design! Can't get enough of it, really.  These coated jeans quickly became a staple in my closet.  The fit is so on point and the added zipper detail really just puts it over the top.  I think a good coated denim is necessary in every closet because you can definitely dress it up or down. It gives off a leather look without giving up comfort.

shades of grey

Pants, Isabel Marant x H&M | Top, Isabel Marant x H&M | Trapeze bag, Celine | Leather jacket, Nasty Gal 

After many attempts at hitting the refresh button in between site crashes, I was able to get my hands on these Isabel Marant x H&M printed jeans.  Skeptical at first, I actually fell in love with the print when I put them on.  I've been a huge sucker for Monochrome (here, here and here) and these pants are a new addition. I paired them with my grey Trapeze handbag to continue with the color palette.  Completed the look with some single-strap sandals and a red lip for a little pop of color.
