lilly lovin’ weekend

Hello and happy Monday! If you follow my Instagram, you may have seen that two weekends ago I had the opportunity to model some Laura Mercier makeup at the Lilly Pulitzer "white dress party" at Somerset Mall! I was ecstatic to say the least when one of my fellow DZ sisters asked me if I would be interested. Lilly, mimosas, and cookies, all while getting my makeup done? Count me in! I've actually never gotten my makeup done professionally so this was a super fun experience for me. It was actually extremely relaxing...I almost fell asleep at one point! However, we couldn't seem to get serious when we were taking pictures, we were having way too much fun!

I attended the party with my Little and we spent the day checking out all the new Lilly pieces, getting hand massages (what!) and documenting this Laura Mercier moment! We were so excited throw on some Lilly and our white jeans (even though people totally looked at us like we were crazy because it was the dead of winter) and find some new summer pieces. I snagged these espadrilles and shorts and I am totally obsessed. Talk about the most fun Saturday! If you are a Michigan gal and have never been to the Lilly store at Somerset, you need to check it out! The staff is SO about the nicest group of ladies ever. Plus, the store itself is absolutely gorgeous. You can check out the artist that did my makeup here!



PS, what do you think about the new Spring Break Sunseekers collection?? I am dying for some warm weather to break out all my new Lilly!

Thank you again to all the Lilly ladies at Somerset for this fun opportunity!

XO, Raquel

glasses usa

Ever since I found out that I needed glasses my sophomore year of high school, I have been a little obsessed with finding the perfect pair of frames. Glasses aren't always the easiest of accessories, so finding a pair that fits perfectly is always my goal! Over the years I have found what colors, frames, and shapes work for me and so now choosing glasses is always something that is so fun!

I have always been a tortoise girl, so when I saw this pair from Glasses USA I was instantly attracted to them. I adore the slight cat eye- like quality and I think the little amounts of magenta are so fun! Normally I wouldn't go for any color on my frames, but something about this pair gave off some Kate Spade vibes for me...which of course I loved! These glasses fit like a dream and I have gotten so many compliments on them! This specific pair is called the Amelia E. Karenina and they come in pink and green also, so cute! I have been wearing these glasses nonstop since I received them, like seriously NONSTOP. They are just so fun!

The best part? You can just send over your prescription and voila! Glasses sent straight to your house! So easy, right?? What are your favorite types of glasses?

Thank you, Glasses USA for contributing to this fun post!
