Hello Lovelies! It’s the weekend, and today on the blog I’m sharing one of my all-time favorite summer go-to’s… a perfectly chilled glass of Chateau Souverain Rosé! The story of Chateau Souverain begins with their founder, J. Leland “Lee” Stewart, who harvested his first crop of grapes from Howell Mountain vineyard in Napa Valley in 1944. Stewart used innovation and incredible standards along with his natural gift for winemaking to establish Souverain as one of the great wineries in California.

This summer they launched a brand new addition to their wines; introducing the Chateau Souverain Rosé, perfect for warm summer days and afternoons on the deck. Since the seasons are changing, I have pulled out the long sleeve and a cozy blanket to enjoy with a glass of rosé instead :) Whether it’s a spread of cheese and crackers, a bowl of fruit, or perhaps some s’mores by the fire, there is always a fun weekend occasion for the tastes of Napa Valley wines. What are some of your favorite summer memories? <3

Hello Lovelies! If you’re anything like me, then giving those summer dresses is the hardest part of the changing seasons. There’s nothing easier than a fun little dress and a pair of sandals to simplify your staple wardrobe. So in order to hang on a little longer, a light-weight fall jacket is an absolute must! It’s a great way to style a dress while staying a little bit warmer.

This khaki green fall jacket from Club Monaco is one of my favorites right now. The sleeves are 3/4, which is great for those warmer fall days while still keeping the cold out! Overall, this has been a go-to outfit for me lately. It’s perfect for a relaxed lunch date, paired with some sandals. Or you can dress it up with a pair of heel booties to kick it up a notch! Either way, it is a simple wardrobe staple and a great way to transition into fall. What are some of your favorite trends going into the new season? <3

Hello lovelies! Cannot believe how quickly fall has crept up on us. Feels like just yesterday we were sitting on patios, soaking up the sun and enjoying that summer-daze bliss. No matter how much you enjoy it, there’s always a cool breeze around the corner. But I have to say, Fall is beautiful! I absolutely love the colors, the cozy sweaters and warm drinks. Plus, we get to pull out all the cute accessories.

Today I’m excited to share my brand new watch from Medium Watch Co. They are a close knit, down to earth, group of friends who live (and play!) in the Rocky Mountains. A while ago they launched their company with the motivation to share affordable, top quality, minimalistic watches with amazing people who like to share their individuality. As a brand new Medium Ambassador I am going to be sharing a mini series of posts introducing and styling my gorgeous timepiece! There are a ton of different watches in their collections. My favorite pick is the Rose gold watch with a white face and a brown leather strap. The color is perfect for fall and I’m loving the leather detail look with the warm cozy sweater.

With the new season’s arrival, Medium Watch Co. is offering $25 off all of their timepieces as a special treat to my lovely readers. All you have to do is use the code “thecarlivh25” at checkout to receive $25 off of your purchase. There are so many amazing choices!

Hello there lovelies! First of all, I just have to say, it has been one heck of an adventurous summer! In April we headed off to South Africa for a wonderful visit with the family, then came home and continued our travels, spending time soaking up the sun and enjoying every moment of summer. One of my favorite memories was having lunch at Brewhaha Micro-Brewery in Jeffreys Bay with the fam.

We just had the most amazing meal. The restaurant is located on the main road of the little surfer’s town, and of course Jacques had to try their famous chicken burger!! We also got to try the fruity and refreshing Nederburg Rosé, perfectly paired with my fresh avocado summer salad! Nothing better on a summers day :) Life is made up of all these precious moments and it is so fun to look back at the good food and the fun memories! What are some of your favorite summer memories? <3

Hello lovelies! Excited to share today’s blog with you all! Just as much as a love getting dolled up and all dressed up, washing it all off at the end of the day is an absolute must for me. When I was younger I often reasoned my way out of washing my face in the evenings, because I mean, who is ever in the mood?! However, somewhere along the line I got a newsflash!! Washing your face at the end of the day not only removes your make-up, but it also washes off the dust and dirt from your entire day. When you think about it, your face definitely gets around! So yes, it is a must. No need to be walking around with the dirt of the day any longer, now is there?

That said, there are a few things that I cannot live without, and one of those is my absolute favorite makeup remover from the Shoppers Drug Mart exclusive Quo brand. These little pink pockets are a lifesaver! They are the perfect eye make-up remover pads, great for travel and perfectly removes while being gentle on the skin. To go hand-in-hand with the mini pouches, is the full-face makeup remover wipes. These are a great pairing to clear off the rest of your face. Plus, they are often offered in a duo-pack option so keep your eyes pealed!

Another one of my favorite is the Take the Day Off remover from Clinique. I always seem to need a little extra to remove my eyeliner and get it completely clean. This Clinique remover is perfectly designed for lids, lashes, and lips so it definitely gets the job done. (Keep in mind, if you have eyelash extensions on, always go for the oil-free option otherwise it will tend to lift away the glue from the lashes as well.)

What are some of your favorites? Would love to hear your thoughts! <3
