Red Carpet: iHeart Radio Music Awards 

I’ve never seen the iHeartRadio Music Awards before, nor paid attention to the red carpet, but I took a stab in the dark and agreed to cover the red carpet a couple weeks back. Thus, I interrupted my Bloodline binge-fest on Netflix, (watch it! SO GOOD) to peruse the red carpet looks of – apparently – one very lackluster event. Turns out, the iHeartRadio Music Awards are not the next Grammy’s…or the next anything…

But, I AM committed to honoring my editorial calendar, thus we can very quickly blow through the red carpet fashions of the night. (And then promptly forget them 2 minutes later.)

It’s Monday guys, let’s have some fun. Here are my immediate reactions to the red carpet!

Fashion: Spring Work Wardrobe

On the subject of getting dressed in the morning for work, I admit I’m a bit in crisis mode these days.

I greet each weekday morning with a quality hate-fest with my closet. It’s become a sadistic, and seriously time consuming, ritual. I’ll stand, drinking coffee in my bathrobe while cursing the insurmountable heap of sweaters strewn to and fro. If we were labeling here, you could say my closet and I have evolved into the ultimate ‘Frenemies’ over the winter months. As in, we secretly loathe and throw insults at each other under our breath.

Review : Philosophy’s The Microdelivery Peel 

Let’s be real: NO ONE likes a flat, dull complexion. Thus, when Philosophy‘s two-step Microdelivery Peel promises to rejuvenate and put life back into skin – I’m all over it! Being a regular Clarisonic user, I’m no stranger to exfoliation, but I do still routinely use a face mask 1-2 times a week. I’ll throw on a face mask, flip on the television and thumb through some magazines in an all around girly pampering ritual, that often includes a manicure.

But, as much as I like my pamper nights – sometimes I just don’t have the time to dedicate a good 30 minutes to my skin. Philosophy’s Microdelivery Peel promised results in a mere 3-4 minutes,  making it perfect for those nights I’m in a rush or on mornings before work. #Score

Day to Night Makeup + Main Street Social Meetup

On a dark and stormy night, is there anything better than some greasy food and girl talk? No.

And so after a long day at the office, I found myself hopping in the car and heading north to Main Street Social, a new lounge/pub style spot in the ever-growing city of Monroe. When an invitation comes in from Amy Wray, I’m always going to RSVP yes – and tonight she brought myself and a group of other bloggers together for a good old gab session over cocktails and herb waffle fries.

(Yes, they’re as good as they sound!)

Fashion: Fringe Benefits for Spring

Queue the weather girl: fringe is BIG in the forecast for spring fashion, dreamers.

Last fall, EVERYONE from Michael Kors and Altuzarra, to Preen and even Marchesa was showing the fringe trend on the Spring 2015 runways, and retailers EVERYWHERE are jumping aboard. And with Coachella, Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo bringing festival fashion back to the mainstream, it’s hardly surprising to see fringe popping everywhere! Good news, though. It doesn’t have to be Coachella for you to pull of this spring trend! Nope, you can start wearing this every day of the week, immediately.

Review: Philosophy Miracle Worker Skincare

I’ve been a longtime fan of Philosophy‘s Hope in a Jar line for years – but at Christmas time I picked up their Miracle Worker skincare range for a test. When it comes to daily moisturizers, Philosophy is undoubtedly the ONE brand I always return to. Sure, I’ll venture into Kiehl’s, Origins etc…but undoubtedly I’ll always go straight back to Philosophy’s Hope in Jar line – and so it felt overdue that I try something new from within the Philosophy brand itself.

Confession: I have a serious phobia of developing crows feet. That very really fear propelled me to try a moisturizer that upped the ‘anti-age’ factor…bringing me to the Miracle Worker skincare products. I know several out there that swear by these creams, and I was very eager to put them to the test. How did it go? Well…

Life: The Final Days of Winter + OOTD

At long last, we’re in the homestretch of winter! I don’t know about where you live, but here in the midwest…it’s been a brutal. Extreme cold (and snow) have taken a real beating on me this year and I’m beyond excited to see spring coming just around the corner!

Today, I just wanted to do a catch up! So I’m bringing you with me on an outing as I finish my last few posts on fashion week over a delicious bagel. Yes, fashion week coverage has taken over at Dream in Lace for the past month, but with those now in our rear view mirror we can just get back to life!

Why do we care about the bachelor?

the-bachelor-2015-chris-soules

I admit, I’ve been swept up in Bachelor mania this season – as have MILLIONS of others, and in honor of tonight’s big finale I thought we could all digress a bit about this ridiculous pop culture phenomenon we just can’t stop watching.

Honestly, WHY DO we care so much about The Bachelor? It’s a ridiculous show with a ridiculous premise, yet somehow it’s more popular than ever finishing its 19th season. NINETEENTH! Take a minute to wrap your brain around that fact – ABC has groomed and sold us 19 bachelors! Mind. Blown.
