Instagram Recap + A Tory Burch Giveaway

Last week’s Instagram recap went over so well with you all that I decided to do another one again this week!  Here are a few of my favorite moments from this past week:

Chic in Academia, http://chicinacademia.com

Details: Sunnies, Emblem Eyewear // To-do list pad, Thyme is Honey // Notepad, Kate Spade // Bag, Louis Vuitton // Lipstick, YSL

I found some new ‘to-do’ lists that I love!  They even help you track how many glasses of water you have had in a day.  Here is a close up of the pad pictured above:

I got my very first facial ever!!  It was rather nice.  More details to come on the where and when, including details on products they used on my face.  In short, it was divine and I want more.  Also, please excuse the lack of makeup and filter here, haha!

Details: Pendant necklace, Cayetano Legacy // Stackable Bracelets, Ellie’s Sparkles // Sunnies, Emblem Eyewear

I got some new jewelry!  Agate stones on a pendant neckalce and a gorgeous stack of baubles. ❤

And finally, La Croix.  My new drink of choice.  The peach-pear and lime flavors are my favorites, but orange isn’t so bad either. 🙂

More to come this later this week, but for now, hope you enjoyed this week’s recap!  What did you think??  Any recommendations for facials – for example, frequency, location, products, etc??  I’m a facial newbie, but I think there may be more in my future after this first experience!!

Also, I’ve joined a group of bloggers for a fun Tory Burch giveaway.  See below for details.  Wish I could enter the giveaway myself because the gifts are to die for!!

Until next time!  Stay ‘Chic’!
