Resort Style- Cocktail Hour

My husband has worked SOOO hard and made Presidents Club for work this year, so the two of us are heading to TAHITI in a little over a month! I CAN NOT EVEN WAIT!!!!!!!!!!! 

The minute I found out that this wasn't just a dream...I immediately felt the need to check out my closet and see what I had, and what I needed!  I usually am a cover up, beach pants with tanks, and bathing suits only kind of girl when I am on a beach vacation. I don't ever dress up for dinner because I am just basically all about comfort 100% of the time.  This trip has me wanting to wear dresses to dinner and just try a little harder than I usually do!  I have been doing some serious searching for COMFORTABLE, stylish, and beachy dresses that I can wear while on vacation at fancy dinners with my husband AND still want to wear when we are back home!  

1 / 2 / 3 /

1:I LOVE this mini dress! I actually bought it on Zulily a few weeks ago and was just hoping that the material was thin enough for summer! IT IS and it is possibly the softest dress I own! I LOVE IT!!!!! I am pretty sure I will wear it with sandals because I just feel like it will be a little too much with heels on vacation. 

2: I am 5' 2" and I just assumed that I would look ridiculous in a jumpsuit like this! I was killing time at Target a few weeks ago and just tried it on and I LOVE IT!!!!!!!! I do need to get it hemmed because it is VERY long, but this has to be the most comfortable piece of clothes that I own! It basically feels like I am walking out in pajamas and I can't even wait to wear this to dinner on vacation! I am on the hunt for a long coral necklace to pair with it and I am packing my coral heels! 

3: I have been eyeing this dress for MONTHS and snagged it up the second I got the 50% off coupon.  (use "friends&family") I LOVE IT!!!!!! Super thin material and the cut is so flattering! I went back and purchased it in the other print as well because it is THAT amazing! 

4: I have never purchased a maxi dress that didn't need to be hemmed......UNTIL I BOUGHT THIS DRESS!!!!!  It is a heavy fabric that hangs very well, and the print cuts at the right places! 

I usually pack a "fancy" outfit for most trips and never end up wearing it because comfort wins over fashion.  BUT I feel that each one of these dresses is the perfect mix of "fancy" AND comfortable so I am confident that I will wear them! (plus, my husband has made sure that I am fully aware that I can not bring a ton of suitcases on this trip)

My Favorites For The Face

I am not a make up girl, so I when I lOVE something, it means that it is perfect for everyday use and really works.  I wish I was into changing the color of my eyeshadow based on what I am wearing, or switched up my look depending on where I was going....but I am just not that girl.

That being said, I LOVE makeup with pretty packaging, that washes easily, and really works well. I have put together a few of my favorite daily pieces for you to check out.  

I LOVE these!!!!!! I went into Ulta originally looking for the Philosphy Pads, but these were cheaper and I figured it was worth a shot. I honestly feel like they make a huge difference in my skin! I wash my face/neck and then wipe with these pads and wait 3 min (That is a lie, I usually forget about it and wait longer) and then rinse.  I don't have extra oily or dry skin, so I am able to do this every day.  I originally purchased the pads here but found that you can purchase them on QVC for the same size pads PLUS trial size of all of the other Peter Thomas Roth goodies! . 

I am not a lipstick girl! I have tried, but it just makes me feel like I am dressing up for Halloween or playing dress up! I have been using this color for a while and I truly love it! It is thick enough that it lasts, but not too thick that makes you want to continue to blot your lips. It is a super neutral color that can be used daily, and that makes it perfect in my opinion.

This is the PERFECT foundation, in my opinion.  It isn't too thick, doesn't make you look like you are trying too hard, and just has a great coverage.  I used to use bare minerals, but this has quickly taken the place! (I wear medium-tan) I also purchased the Airbuki brush with it, and it evens everything out nicely! 

I received this eyeshadow in my Ipsy bag last month and I LOVE IT! I don't see the exact color match on their site, but the Shades Of Daylight looks really similar.  Just a nice beachy, golden, summery vibe.  (they are running 20% off until the 16th with code "pixiff")  I rarely use eyeshadow, but when I do...I prefer it to be goldish and shimmery. 

I may not be a makeup girl.....but I AM A MASCARA GIRL!!!! I love it! I want big, full, amazing eyelashes and I feel naked without them.   My mother in law got me into It Tightline and I AM IN LOVE! You put this on prior to putting your regular mascara on! It is the tiniest little brush and covers each individual eyelash perfectly!  I wear this without adding any additional coats on most days and I love how it looks.  When I want my lashes to be BOLD I just add the Hello Lashes and BAM! 

Those are my daily favorites for the moment! I am always coming up with new favorite products now that I am receiving the Ipsy bag monthly! I swear there is something so amazing about sample products! They are so tiny, they have the best packaging, and they make me so excited!

New Shop OPEN......again!

I have been working behind the scenes on opening up my shop again!  I LOVE etsy, and plan on keeping that shop open for a while, but I wanted a fresh, clean shop that really allows me to show off the vibe that I want for SaSea.

I recently had pictures taken by Kim Flores Photography and I couldn't be more excited with how they all turned out!  I love each and every one of them and I have been so excited to share them with everyone!

I have FINALLY reopened my shop HERE and I am running a 15% off coupon that will run until Friday (4/17) with code "spring fever" at checkout! 

We are also still taking preorders on our Cinco De Mayo shirts! I am SOOO excited about ALL of them!!!!! The truth is, they really aren't JUST for Cinco De Mayo....they are really for any given Taco Tuesday, Party....or just when you feel like having a great day! 

We LOVE each one of Jessica's designs, and paring them with our super soft shirts makes it a match made in heaven! Don't miss out!
