[Cashmere + Chilli Beans Giveaway]

Summertime is the best time to go out on as many lunch dates as possible. I love lunch dates more than dinner dates sometimes because it's a great escape from work. Working in the heat can be wearing, so having a good meal to look forward to is a great way to stay motivated. Excited I got to share some Milk treats and my favorite La Mill coffee in Silverlake to wash down the brussel sprout kale salad I ordered with blogger boo, Erika. We bonded over our love for silver jewelry, over-ordering sweets (yes, we ordered four macaron ice cream sandwiches), and man buns. Haha! The last part was partly a joke but also partly true. I don't know guys! I'm kind of into them a little bit. Yes? No? 

I also wanted to share my love affair with my new favorite nude lipstick, or should I say velvetine. I have fallen victim to the Lime Crime bandwagon and I am not sorry at all about it. It stays vibrant on the lips all day. No reapplication needed. My favorite go-to when I know I'm going to need a long-lasting lippie. Cashmere got me inspired to dress in head to toe Cashmere-shade and then found the perfect wall to match. To glam up my neutral palette, I had to throw on my new limited edition cat-eye sunglasses from Chilli Beans for their new, limited edition BLACK collection. Did I mention they have Swarovski crystals embedded on the frames? Luxe.

I also love that they're mirrored. Mirrored sunnies during the summer are definitely one of my staples. Using premium acetate and precious stones and metals, Chilli Beans have definitely upped their luxury sunglass game. They are also limited to only 15 pairs of each color and style in the United States so you better get yours quick! Or better yet, how about you win a pair?
