Blue Vanilla Dress Wish List

I can't tell you how much I'm in love with this Blue Vanilla Floral White Collar dress! I'm looking to revamp my wardrobe and the collar detailing just spoke to me on this one. I came across them while looking through online retailers and now I can't decide which dress I want to purchase. The three quarter sleeves and covered decolletage make it great for late fall and early winter here in Florida.
I've also had my eye on the Embellished Neck Dress because it is classy yet simple. I want to have a go to black dress for conferences and professional parties. I'm graduating soon and need to add more sophisticated pieces to my wardrobe that are still cute. This dress would pair great with a blazer.

The last item that I'm considering is this Dip Dye Dress because it is going to start getting colder soon in Florida, so it would be nice to have a comfortable yet feminine piece to wear to campus and for days I'm stuck studying at a coffee shop. It also doesn't seem to be too thick where I can't wear it in spring weather. Which pieces are your favorites?

All dresses can be found at Blue Vanilla's website here,

How to Use Garnier Olia

Hey Angels!
Today, I finally show you how I dye my curly hair with Garnier Olia. This is just a video showing you how I dye it but if you want an in depth review on the product, click here for the review I did a while back. Today I'm using the Champagne Blonde shade, however, it was extremely difficult to find! In the past, I have used the Medium Blonde shade and that worked well, I just prefer the champagne because it's more of an ash tone. I pretty much follow the directions given except for a few steps and the length of time that I leave it in. It is suggested that you have someone with patience help you if not do it for you because it will come out better. With that said, I didn't have my mom here to do it for me so I had to dye it on my own and missed a few spots. It's not a big deal to me but if it is to you then please have someone who likes hair do it for you.

Taste Test: Pineapple Ciroc versus New Amsterdam

The Pineapple Ciroc just made its debut in Florida this week so I decided to do a blind taste test versus the Pineapple New Amsterdam to see if there is difference. Watch and find out which pineapple flavored vodka tastes best! Let me know in the comments which liquor taste test you would like to see.

Sleeping Moon Cafe

Above are a few shots from my last visit to the Sleeping Moon Cafe, located on the outskirts of Winter Park, FL. I enjoyed the caprese panini with chicken along with the strawberry jasmine tea. Whenever I am heading towards this area I try to find an excuse to stop by because the ambiance soothes a busy day. It's a great place to meet a friend for coffee or tea, but also nice to visit alone as there is varied seating. I love the service here because everyone is very friendly and they give refills on the iced teas of the day. 
The lunch/dinner menu contains paninis, salads, and appetizers such as grape leaves. They serve breakfast, however I have not tried it. There are also vegetarian and vegan options in other words, a little something for everyone. While this cafe is on the pricier side averaging $12 a meal, it is a delightful place to visit so I give it 4 out of 5 stars.

P.S.- The server mentioned that alongside the typical coffee and espresso drinks, they carry Turkish coffee. I had only heard of it once before but was unable to try it that day. I will have to update this post once I try their Turkish coffee and let you all know how it tastes with the coffee grounds in the cup.

Elegant Curly Hairstyle

Hair Tutorial! I know I haven't made a curly hair tutorial in a while but I wanted to post this one because it is very easy yet feminine. This is great for those of you with really long necklaces that you want to wear as hair jewelry. I like this style because you still get to wear the necklace around your neck and in your hair.

I'm wearing the Golden Leaf Multi-Chain necklace from Bijoux ou Bijou. They have jewelry and accessories that are quality at affordable prices. Since this necklace is gold plated, it will not fade or change color for a very long time. Visit Bijoux ou Bijou here and use the code JEWELRY15OFF to receive 15% off your purchase.
