With Valentine’s just a few days away we wanted to share different outfits you could put together for various occasions! We took advantage of Zaful’s Valentine’s day sale to create the perfect v-day lookbook at affordable prices.

Whether your plans consist of a Galentines 👭 watching “Fifty Shades of Grey” with a tub of ice cream or a laidback date with your boo, this is perfect for you! These are pieces that are cute ‘n casual.

1.  Pullover Sweater – there are so many cozy sweaters out there that can be mixed and matched. We’ve paired this with a skirt and would suggest a cute pair white sneakers.
2.  Corduroy Skirt – Corduroy is a fun material, perfect for the chilly season! This skirt is also available in a nude pink, a great color for any time of the year.
3.  Wide Leg Jumpsuit – Jumpsuits are so trendy and very versatile. You can throw on a blazer and heels for a polished look, or pair it with flat sandals for a relaxed look.

Wanna spice things up a bit? Here are other options for something sexy and racy. If you are planning on meeting your date later next Wednesday evening, plan for a look that you can take from day-to-night.

4. Lace Teddy – bodysuits are great, but lace teddies are something you can sport at the end of the night…if you know what we mean (wink emoji)
5. Faux Leather Pants – If you want to add a bold feel to a more conservative look, you can do this by combining different textures. Leather always add edge.
6. Blazer – This look can easily be something you wear to work by simply wearing a woven top over your teddy and a blazer. Before the date, take off the top and voilà!

Since the big day falls on a Wednesday this year, some of you may be saving your plans for the weekend. For a night look here are some options!

7. Cami Wrap Dress – This silk dress is so sexy!
8. Ruched Dress - We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again. We love off-the-shoulder dresses! They are the perfect way to be sexy without revealing too much. We’ve seen sooo many bloggers wearing this style.
9. Sock Boots – Sock boots and knee high boots are our faves. Pair your dresses with any of them and show off those legs!

 My Wild Ones and I have a New Years tradition - we travel to a different country to ring in the New Year. This New Years tradition started in high school and our first destination was Nicaragua. Eventually, we moved to different countries and cities, so this became our “excuse” to meet up every year! This year, we decided to travel to Nassau and stayed there for 6 days - all filled with beach, partying, and lots of pictures! Click to see some of my favorite memories!

We might not have found the fountain of youth, but we have come across an amazing bundle that can provide you with youthful skin! It’s no secret that Koreans have amazing beauty products so we are super excited to share our first impressions of Saranghae’s 5 Step Anti-Aging Routine! Check out our vlog review and product details below, we have summarized the steps of this awesome routine:

Step 1 - Nourishing + Moisturizing Cleanser: Like in any beauty routine, the first step is to wash your face! This cleanser will break down harmful oils, remove makeup and toxins. While washing your face this product will also nourish and hydrate your skin.

Step 2 - Deep Radiance Essence + Serum: This serum is super light! Apply it to your face and neck to provide necessary nutrients like antioxidants, amino acids, and vitamins.

Step 3 - Firm & Lift Cellular Regeneration Cream: Stress always causes damage, so this cream has magical regeneration powers. Their natural blend will aid in reducing age spots (not that we have any yet 😏) and decrease redness, while giving you smooth and beautiful skin.

Step 4 - Focus Renewal Eye Cream: They say eyes are the windows to your soul, so don’t forget to lift and firm them with this eye cream! It will help lessen dark circles and wrinkles around the area.

Step 5 - Elemental Essence Mask: Our favorite step - complete this routine with a mask for glowing results.

 Since the beginning of the year matching sets have been a thing. Whether they are shorts, pants or skirts - this style is everywhere and everyone is feeling it. We felt like dressing up a bit to create cute looks that would be perfect for a brunch, or tea time with the girls! Click on the image for full details.

Summer Swimsuits

It’s getting hot in here, time to take off all our clothes! 😉 One of our favorite season is coming soon. Whether you are planning a beach getaway or relaxing by the pool, here is our swimwear wish list with our top picks for the summer. Time to upgrade that swimwear inventory!

          CRISTINA 

  1. Lace-Up Bikini Set: What I really like about this two-piece is the dark golden nude color that it comes in and the sheen of the fabric, I find it really appealing. Then again anything in a rich gold is life! That combined with its trendy strappy lace front bra and complimentary brief makes for a sexy find.

  2. High Cut Lace Up Leaf Print Swimwear: One of my favorite prints is banana leaves. Botanical prints, like this or monstera have become really trendy within the past two years. They remind me of a classic time period. Some of those that know me, know that I really appreciate everything vintage. And prints like this, transport me to california summer days in the 50s, or drinking a mojito at old Havana, Cuba. This one-piece swimsuit also has a vintage feel, with a modern twist by adding the lace-up drawstring in the front.  

    ELISSA

  3. Lace Up Bandeau Bikini: As you may have noticed, I love lace-ups in any type of clothing article: tops, heels, sandals, EVERYTHING! This bikini top is super cute and I like it specifically in this color. Lilac is not a color I have explored yet, so would love to try it in this darker shade. The fact that it’s a bandeau makes it even sexier. If you like this style too, shop this item.

  4. Caged Bandage Bikini: Simple & sexy. I am a fan of cutouts, and this one has them everywhere! The back of the design has a caged look, definitely worthy for a picture on the GRAM. I am also digging all the colors! But you know me, I would totally get it in burgundy.

            If you liked any of these swimsuits, click on the titles to buy! You can shop them all on Zaful.

 We said goodbye to the winter season with a final cool weather look. As excited as we are that spring is finally here, we could not help but share a cozy yet stylish outfit. For some of you in other states, this look is still appropriate, but here in SoCal things have started to warm up quite a bit... click more for details!
