Pink is IN: My fav dresses from the Met Gala

Every year, I LOVE seeing all the incredible fashion from the Met Gala. This year the theme was “Camp: Notes on Fashion.” Lucky for me, most people took that to mean wear PINK! Vogue said pink was “the color that won the 2019 Met Gala.” Even the red carpet this year was pink!

I have to say I almost died when I saw Kasey Musgraves looking like a real life BARBIE! She wore Jeremy Scott for Moschino hot pink leather gown. Plus, a blowdryer-shaped purse that I definitely want. Kasey even came to the Gala in a hot pink convertible!

Doutzen Kroes looked so fab in a hot pink lace and tulle gown with a long train.

Naomi Campbell wore a Valentino Couture gown and a feather cape that was beyond stunning.

The queen of fashion herself, Anna Wintour, looked incredible in a pink crystal-embellished Chanel gown. Plus, she had a pink and purple feathered cape!

Of course, Gisele Bündchen looked amazing in a silky pale pink Dior dress!

What were your favorite pink dresses from the Met Gala? Put your answers in the comments below!

XOXO,

Your Ultimate Guide to Statement Earrings & my personal ‘Top 8’

We all know pairing earrings with an outfit is an art to say the least, and I am beyond OBSESSED with earrings. I was recently named the “Reality TV queen of the statement earring” by fashionista.com, and yes, I can prove it!

Before I tell you some of my favorite pairs of earrings I have collected over the years, there is one rule. Statement earrings have to be big, chunky, and noticeable to make a real pop on an outfit. If they’re not too chunky, a simpler outfit to make them be the statement is always the way to go. That being said, let’s dive in! I’m going to count backwards, up to my favorites!

I have linked as many as I can through LIKEtoKNOW.it, but will include a link to any that aren’t available on their site!

8. Oscar de la Renta Tassles – in every color.

These are fabulous for any casual occasion, beaches, dinners, parties – you name it! They come in TONS of colors, lengths, and styles, here are a couple of my favs!

7. J’adior Staple Gold Hoops

These are my all-time go-to gold hoops, but really any gold hoop will do! Everyone needs their staple neutral hoop, these are mine! They aren’t available on RewardStyle so they’re linked below.

6. Lele Sadoughi Broadway Hoops

Fabulous for spring/summer! Good for the pool, these are acrylic hoops from my absolute favorite earring designer! She will show up again on this list… more than once!

5. J’adior Studs

Another one of my go-to’s! These are fabulous and pair well with jeans/blazer, fashion t-shirts or fashion sneakers. I have them in the silver and multi-color! Linked below.

4. Dior Tribales

Something everyone needs a pair of, they go with everything. A must! If it’s above the budget I have seen great look-a-likes on Etsy! Also included a pic of them on, it’s hard to tell what they look like from stock photos!

3. Lilly Pulitzer Oversized Orchid Earrings

These are STATEMENT earrings if I have ever seen them! One of my absolute favorite pairs, I have them in a few different colors! These are great to go with cocktail dresses and a little bit dressier of occasions! They have matching rings, to die for!!!

2. My Favorites: Lele Sadoughi Stardust Crystal Hoops

I would wear these for just about any dressy occasion, they are perfect for cocktail dresses! I have them in gold and silver. Absolute favorites!!!

1. Hot Earring of the Month! Monica Sordo Custom Earrings

I am obsessed with these that I just got! They are specialty Monica Sordo earrings, will be wearing them a lot! I’m sure there are styles similar to these online, and I know there are some on her website specifically, but not these exact ones!

Thanks for reading everyone, I’ll be back next week!

Xo,

Kam

Travel Makeup I LOVE!

Everyone asks me what makeup products I bring when I travel, so I wanted to share what makeup I actually brought on my latest vacation.

I honestly didn’t bring too much makeup this time to travel with, believe it or not, because I went to the beach… = natural makeup, of course!! Anyhow, these are my favorite products that I couldn’t live without… even at the beach!

Highlighter: Hourglass Cosmetics Illume Sheer Color Trio in Sunset. Highlighting, blush, bronzer, highlighter under eyes is fabulous makes eyes glitter

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. Fair #5

Clé de Peau concealer with SPF 25 in it is a must, cant go anywhere without it 

FAVORITE Mascara – Hourglass Ultra Black. I am obsessed, I have not found a fabulous mascara in a long time that’s just something different and special, and this is the ONE. You guys all have to get it. It’s Cautious Extra Last Mascara, you all HAVE to have it, I promise!

Bobbi Brown Pale Pink Bush #9 – favorite pink blush everyone needs. Subtle pink, awesome

Gorgeous Cosmetics palette. Highlighter & neutral eyeshadows

Must have – Bling Brush cleans your ring after being on beach/sunscreen/sand. Cleans jewelry on the go

Tom Ford eyebrow pencil – my color is Taupe, there is one lighter than this but I like having a good contrast between eyebrows and skin so I tend to go a little bit darker

Anastasia clear brow gel, I have wild brows sometimes so it holds your brows down 

Peekaboo pink #13 by Sephora, makes lips super glossyEasy lip glosses that I throw in my bag wherever I go, the color always seems to match everything.

Powder brush by Tarte Cosmetics, I love Tarte eyeshadow pallets but don’t bring them while traveling because they’re too big! Made of bamboo and it’s super soft and I’m obsessed!

Original RCMA no-color powder. My makeup artist last year got me really into this. Has no color, holds foundation and colors down and has no shine on camera/in pictures.

Vacation Recap! – All About the brand new Celebrity Edge

My family and I had THE BEST time on Celebrity Cruises. It was beyond luxurious and such a great vacation for the kid’s spring break.

Westcott spring break on Celebrity Cruises.

As a family, we love to travel! One of the easiest ways to vacay in style, and one of our favorites – cruises! My husband Court only likes to travel on new ships because he gets a first-look at them, so we booked our trip on the Celebrity Edge about three years in advance… crazy town! 

This traveling circus of a family could not have had a better time, as the kids get a little bit older they are appreciating all the fun even more! We sailed out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and our stay there was fabulous as well!

Before reading any further I should mention that if you book before April 3, kids sail FREE! ~ https://bit.ly/2IYL5Gf

About the Celebrity Edge 

  • 1000 foot first of it’s kind edge-class cruise ship 
  • 2900 passenger capacity
  • 29 restaurants 
  • Sails Caribbean and European waters

Check out this incredible ship here ~ https://bit.ly/2EUAlVc

Our Room – Iconic Suite

https://video.wixstatic.com/video/35231b_6362f14580fc43c4b224175d5a6a4795/720p/mp4/file.mp4

The iconic suite… professionally named just for me! Kidding!!! You guys, I have never had even a HOTEL room that was as fabulous as our penthouse on this cruise was. With a nautical white, gray and blue theme, this room was just beyond. It makes you feel like you are on top of the world, with views from all directions front to back. 

At almost 2000 square feet it is more than enough room for any family with accommodations for 6 guests.

The views from all angles were spectacular, the private Jacuzzi and balcony were our favorite hangout spots. There was even a swing in the room and a flatscreen TV that folded out of the ceiling over the master bed!

https://video.wixstatic.com/video/35231b_54be5f11432a409c89b4201746c6150b/720p/mp4/file.mp4

The bathroom was bigger than my bathroom at home in Dallas… and that’s saying something (LMAO.)

Our suite came with a manager who was there to help us with everything for our entire stay, including my issues connecting to the WiFi, which was probably just a “blonde thing” and turned out being hysterical.

More on the room here:

Kids Club –

Amazing. Cruise made slime one day! The bigger kids went on a scavenger hunt. Hilton made a friend and they came back every day with so many fun stories, they couldn’t stop talking about it!

Spa –

I got a deep tissue massage, I fell asleep and I NEVER fall asleep! The rocking of the boat just put me to sleep! The Masseuse was fabulous, she did a great job. 

The spa itself was fabulous because it was so relaxing. The “relaxation room” has an ocean view, that was my favorite part!

More on the Spa here:

Entertainment –

Kaleidoscope show was super fun, the music was awesome, kids stayed engaged the whole time. The dancers were phenomenal, this was my favorite show on the ship!

Dining – 

Le Petit Chef and Friends – Augmented realty dinner! They had 3D animations on the table during dinner from the little chef preparing the food to servers serving it, it was amazing!!

Eden – Show & eat-in restaurant was characters walking around to interact with guests as they eat, the kids loved it!The food was super exotic, but they accommodated the children by getting food from other restaurants on the boat and brought it to this restaurant for us!

Fine Cut Steakhouse – This was our first meal on the boat, the kids ate their WHOLE steaks… definitely my favorite meal onboard!

More about dining here – https://www.celebritycruises.com/edge/dining/specialty-dining/

Fort Lauderdale is where we sailed from. They do a European cruise too but not sure what ports over there.

1 week/7 days

Would you recommend for a family with a 9 year old and 9 month old?

Yes! Kids club was fabulous
