The Little Mermaid

On Saturday, we went to see The Little Mermaid show at the Straz Center.

It was so cute! Leading up to the show, I was curious how they were going to do the under water scenes on stage. Well, so it was interesting. There were times they would drop this sheer backdrop with a bubble pattern and raise actors with cords to look like they are swimming in water. That was pretty good. The kind of weird part was the times they were standing on stage. They would move their bodies as if they were in water. THE. WHOLE. TIME. Hard to really explain in writing. Really something that you have to see in person. It was a cute show. They didn't fully stick to the original movie script towards the end. It was a little different.

Here's a picture of my cute date and I before the show. Love him.

We are already looking forward to our next show at the Straz in September to see Harry Potter Film Concert Series. It will be so fun to hear the Florida Orchestra perform the music to Harry Potter live during the movie!

Style | Warby Parker

Hi friends! I am here today to chat with you all about Warby Parker. I was contacted a couple weeks ago by one of the brand reps, who asked if I would mind writing a post of their new collection that debuts TODAY for them on my blog. I've been contacted before by other companies/brands to do collaborations but they were companies that, honestly, I've never heard about before. I was a little skeptical about those so I passed. However, I have heard about Warby Parker before and have always had an appreciation for some of their styles.

I also love to support brands that have an initiative to help others. They have the Buy a Pair, Give a Pair program - for every pair sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need. You can learn more about it here.

Let me start off by saying, this is NOT a paid sponsored post and I did NOT receive any goodies in the mail. I am simply sharing my thoughts based on the images and descriptions that were emailed to me. 

Okay, enough formalities, let's get to the good stuff! Their new collection contains four new styles: Gemma, Mae, Skye and Stella.

Gemma - Walnut

Mae - Onyx

Skye - Jet Black

Stella - Sable Horn

I'm really loving the Gemma and Mae! The Gemma's I could totally see wearing on the daily. Stylish and Feminine. The Mae would be my go-to's for the weekend. Fun and flirty. The touch of color on the sides adds some variation to them but not a lot. When it comes to accessories like sunglasses, I am not one that hoards a collection of them, so I like to have one or two pairs that can go with anything.

The last two are a bit to futuristic looking for me, but definitely something I could see a model wearing down a fashion runaway.

If you're interested in any of these, you can visit their site or location for a location near you. I just discovered they have a location at one of my fave places, The Oxford Exchange! I may need to plan brunch over there next weekend and go peruse the new sunnies in person.

Friday Five | No. 18

This is my Friday Five - Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Edition. If you've been living under a rock and haven't been bombarded with posts all over social media about this, the sale starts July 21st.

Tory Burch Adeline Boot - I am in need of a new pair of riding boots. The last pair I had were in pretty bad shape and I needed to toss them out. I have wanted TB boots for some time now and what better time to get them than during a big sale? Hello, $200 off!! #nobrainer

Kate Spade Park Bow Bracelet Watch -  Y'all know I love me some Kate Spade. I have been wanting a watch that is both silver and gold for it's versatility. This one is adorable!

Sole Society Ivan Faux Leather Backpack - I have been on the hunt for a nude backpack purse to use while in Las Vegas. I know I will be doing a lot of activities and don't want to worry about slugging around a tote purse. It needs to be a more formal looking bag because I will be using it during the conference and wearing business attire. This purse hits the mark! I want to see it in person to see the size of it.

Sigma Beauty Classically Beautiful Brush Set - Confessions. I have been wanting Sigma makeup brushes since I started watching YouTube videos back in 09. Of course, I kept delaying because I couldn't get myself to dish out the money but I am still wanting them!

Diptyque Scented Candle Set - I have heard so much about these candles. Very possible that it is just people that are sponsored by this brand that rave about it. Not sure. Have any of you tried these? Are they real deal?
