Becoming a member of FabFitFun was one of the best decisions ever. Shout out to my besties Sabah & Paulina for getting me on board! I love having a curated box of amazing products sent to me quarterly- it really gives me something to look forward to. One product I’ve been super grateful for is the Skin&CO Roma Blue in Capri Shower Gel, a limited edition product from the Italian Collection.Continue reading “Skin&CO Roma Blue in Capri Shower Gel”
Happy Saturday! One of my favorite things to do on a Saturday is to scroll through all the links I’ve opened up at work during the week, but never actually get around to reading. When I first started Love. Life. Beauty. I routinely did a Link Roundup, and then slowly stopped. I’ve been wanting to bring it back, so here we are, with Saturday’s Link Love! If you have any favorite links you’ve come across during the week, drop them in the comments below!

I def want to start taking probiotics daily, both for my skin and overall heath. & I know I need to be more mindful about not touching my face & making sure I regularly wipe down my cell phone before using it to prevent germs!

I really want to try the new Tarte Stay Spray setting spray! It claims to be the perfect setting spray for the summer, and since facial sweating is one of my biggest fears in life, I’m hoping this product lives up to the hype! The e.l.f. Super Mask also looks promising for a post-sun mask.Continue reading “Saturday Link Love”
February has gone by so quickly. I’m looking at the calendar right now, and I cannot believe there’s only 8 more days left in this month. February has been super hectic for me, from teaching to kinda, half way unexpectedly, moving.
Life can be pretty crazy, almost all the time, but I really wasn’t expecting needing to move in a three week time period. At first it was super overwhelming, but then Rob & I found a renovated townhouse in D.C…. finally, we’re officially in the city. No more rush hour traffic for me, my school is just over a 5 minute drive away. It’s seriously amazing.
Before I get into this Louis Vuitton greatness…
A few days after Christmas my bestie, Heather, & I took the train into NYC with our Mom’s to have fun in the city. We got our Mom’s tickets to the Radio City Music Hall Christmas Spectacular, with the Rockette’s, and the Radio City Stage Door Tour, where they met and had a cute photo sesh with a Rockette. If you live in the tri-state area, or plan on visiting NYC during the next holiday season, this is an awesome gift to give…trust me.
You can find more info on the Radio City Stage Door Tour here!
I’ll break up these Behind the Scenes posts into different categories, as you’ll see below! Feel free to Tweet or Snap me your thoughts…@elizabethmayce for both!
I seriously can’t believe it’s about to be the second week of July…where has all the time gone?! This is the first summer as a teacher where I’m not working some additional job. I get paid through the summer so it doesn’t really matter, but it’s always nice to have a little extra moolah for brunch…or, as the adult me should say, credit card bills. Le sigh.
What I’m Doing…
This first picture is a throwback from the last day of school last month where we left as quickly as possible to go to a bar. Any teachers reading this totally understand where I’m coming from, and if you know me, and the year I had, you’re probably surprised I even made it to this day…& so am I. We ended up having a great staff party, organized by yours truly, and brought in the summer exactly how it should be brought in…lots of drinks and great food.
I’ve also been up in Jersey quite a bit, I think more than I have been since in a summer graduating college, which I’ve been loving. I spent some time at my Aunt’s beach house in Bradley Beach, she recently redid her patio and I’m obsessed. It’s the perfect little outdoor oasis where you can enjoy your morning coffee in peace and quite, or grill and have happy hour!
Of course I have to share Leo pictures, he’s my pride and joy and has recently been living the life of a human. In addition to visiting Bradley Beach this summer, Leo also took a spur of the moment trip to Atlantic City over July 4th weekend! Since we booked so last minute, his day care couldn’t take him, so Rob & I looked up pet friendly hotels in A.C. Showboat, which closed in 2014, reopened last year as a non-gaming hotel, pet-friendly, so we stayed there. I loved Showboat when it was a casino, I actually had my 21st birthday party there, and we stayed in the House of Blues suite…all 20 something of us. Showboat has so many memories, and memories I wish I could remember, so seeing so much of it blocked off and unused made me sad. The entire gaming floor is empty and is covered by a huge curtain basically, it was kinda creepy, but all of the rooms are the same and are really nice. I hope A.C. can be reborn again soon!!
PS: I have a huge trip to Europe coming up July 23, I’m looking forward to sharing tons of travel tips and pictures with all of you!
Where I’m Eating…
On the beach…of course. Bradley Beach held it’s annual Lobsterfest so my family and I went. So. Much. Food. It was heaven. There are tons of vendors, great options to shop, and eat local, which is important for our Jersey beach towns! PS: That’s a lobster grilled cheese, and yes, it was to die for.
While walking along the A.C. boardwalk Rob & I decided to treat ourselves to a nice Italian dinner. We chose Capriccio, in the Resorts hotel, and it was incredible. This award winning restaurant did not disappoint, we laughed because we literally felt like back in the day this was probably the ultimate mobster restaurant for fancy dinners…maybe it still is? I ordered the shrimp and crab salad, with a side of broccoli rabe, and it was so good. Rob ordered chicken parm, and since there was nothing left on the plate at the end, I’m assuming it was pretty yummy. We shared blackberry cobbler for dessert, it was delish. If you’re in Atlantic City looking to treat yourself to a great restaurant, I highly, highly, recommend Capriccio.
This week I had a lovely girls dinner at Rose’s Luxury, in D.C. If you know about the D.C. restaurant scene, you know Rose’s doesn’t take reservations, so you need to get there early and wait in line…which we did. This was my second time visiting Rose’s Luxury, but since the menu is constantly changing, it felt like a completely new experience. The attention to detail in the service, and the menu, is why this is has been a top rated restaurant in D.C. since it opened. My suggestion: arrive around 4:30pm to make sure you’re seated as soon as it opens at 5.
What I’m Loving…
Every month I change my desktop calendar, and I’ve been using Designer Blogs calendar template to do so. It’s free, and Designer Blogs emails you the new template each month, so it’s super easy to download and change. They also have the themed template for your tablet and phone, so if you love consistency, here ya have it. & for other bloggers out there, Designer Blogs has quite a few freebies, such as tips and tutorials, and great blog templates if you’re looking for something new! Maybe I’m biased because it’s my birthday month, but so far the July template has been my favorite this year!
Where I’m Shopping…
Macy’s: Their having another One Day Sale, which I feel like they have every day…but whatever the prices are incredible. You can save 50% off a large selection of kitchen items, with code FIFTY, and there are tons of clothing items on sale for 20% off or more…bathing suits are 40% off!
LOFT: 50% off sale styles, and an automatic 40% off certain full price items…not bad at all.
Gap: 40% off with code DEAL, I love Gap for summer dresses & jeans!
Bath & Body Works: Aka, the only place I buy candles from. $1 shipping with orders over $30, code SUNTAN. However, I always prefer to shop in store, today candles are $10 off!
I hope you all have a great weekend! & I promise to start taking way more, and way better, pictures for this series, but hey, I gotta start somewhere!!
