Hey there, brilliant beauty!

Smart women across the globe are making a difference.
Have you recently had a lightbulb idea moment on your commute to work?
In the checkout line at your local grocery store?
Maybe even while you swipe left on all those rejects.

Don’t dismiss it. Bring it to life!

Here’s how:
Clinique is partnering with TED to launch a global search to bring the next smart idea to life
by e
ncouraging smart gals like us to share their intelligence, ambition and creativity.

 One lucky lady will have the chance to get their idea
in front of some of the brightest minds in the country, and the world.

I know you have what it takes, so give them a piece of your mind!

P.S. The winner will be invited as a special guest to the Smart Women series
at the TEDWomen conference in 2016.

Submit you ideas at Clinique.com through September 30, 2015.

Best of luck!

Bucket Bags

Bucket bags are currently all the rage.

I first had my heart set on this little number by Mansur Gavriel.
That was before I saw the hefty price tag.
I scoured the land for the perfectly-priced bucket bag and stumbled upon this
Steve Madden replica that is almost identical to the aforementioned.
I love that the black faux-leather matches with almost everything and
that the red lining gives it a touch of … je ne sais quoi.

After this weekend, I can honestly say I’ve been to eyewear heaven.

Alas, the Warby Parker Annex is making a splash in Wynwood! Literally.
The latest addition to the WP family has an added “dose of poolside pizzazz thrown in.” Complete with “swimming pool-patterned floors, tropical plants and an overhead photo booth that recreates your classic lounging-by-the-water moment.”

I had the best experience while visiting the new store!

Upon arrival, I was greeted by the lovely Jesse, who gave me a tour and explained the concept behind the annex. The walls adorned with a variety of sunnies and glasses sparked instant eyewear envy.

My indecisiveness kicked in almost immediately. A part of me wished that I had mild astigmatism so that I could rock a new pair of glasses. Needless to say, I snapped out of it and headed towards the sunglasses and fell in love with not one, but FOUR pairs of sunglasses.

I was torn.

I tried them on, took numerous selfies, texted my boyfriend slightly embarrassing pictures and made a decision.

I went for the ‘Teddy’ frames in Petal Tortoise.

I love everything about them. The subtle pink hue of the frames, the trendy brow bar and tortoise pattern…
It’s love. Sweet Warby Parker love.

Summer Adieu

Summer lovin’ had me a blast!

Summer may be long gone for you northern states, but in Florida, we’re still getting our tan on.
One of the benefits of living in the sunshine state,
is being able to wear a bikini almost year-round.

Lolita

I’ve always been a nickname kind of gal.
I remember in high school, my friend Rachel and I would have nicknames for guys we liked.
Particularly one guy that we referenced in notes as “wonder boy”.
He was pretty dreamy.
In a high school crush kind of way.
Eventually our entire social circle began calling him by the same name.

I’m sure he would get a kick out of it today.

It’s weird how nicknames work… My sister and I call each other Lola.
One name, two people.
It’s been our nickname for years.
And over time it developed into a business venture;
Laced by Lola.

I went to ZARA a few weeks ago and stumbled upon this shirt and had to have it.
Not only does it represent the classic novel by Vladimir Nabokov,
but it reminds me that i’m the youngest Lola, and I wouldn’t change it for the world.

Musical Styling

Fun fact: It is nearly impossible for me to complete a task without music.
No, really.  It’s like I have some sort of special musical attention deficit disorder.
Whether it’s humming along to my favorite tune, or replaying my favorite
tracks on Spotify, I always have my stylish Frends headphones handy!

P.S. I’m currently obsessed with Break Free – Ariana Grande
What song can you not stop playing on repeat?
