Weekending + Huge Sephora Sale

Happy Monday.  I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  I feel like I got a lot accomplished over the two days. Ranging from getting tons of work done, out and about fun and even heading over to Orlando for the day on Sunday.  Even though today is a soggy start to Monday thankfully the hurricane broke up before it made landfall in Florida.  Off to work today.  Let’s do some recapping with Biana.

Friday we checked out some local spots in St. Pete.  Casita Taqueria is a casual Mexican spot with a super chill vibe and really good food.

I loved the inside decor.

The food was excellent.

Pretty decently priced as well.  They also have a fabulous outdoor space.

St. Pete in the past few years have really lead the way with craft breweries.  I finally made my way to 3 Daughters.  The inside space has bar seating and a large table where there was a  group playing Cards Against Humanity.

Outside is the brewery which isn’t air conditioned but has a large space with tons of games and live music.  There were also food trucks outside with outdoor seating.  We were very engaged into a long game of Jenga inside.  Would definitely head there again.

Saturday was up early with barre class and then anchored down for work.  Sunday we headed over to Orlando for some shopping and to grab dinner.  We made it back right before the rains headed in!


Another exciting part of the weekend.  Did you know Sephora is having a huge sale right now and it’s really good?  I picked up this St. Tropez tanning kit for half off because you know that Summer bronze will be gone sooner than you know it.  It is a cult classic for a reason.  Plus, it comes with the bronzing mit.  Sold!  Scoop that up before it sells out.  If you travel or need makeup on the go, this BareMinerals kit needs to be in your bag.  It is compact and everything you need, plus it’s an incredible price on sale.  I have these airbrush makeup brushes and they are the real deal.  One of them is basically the cost of this kit on sale, such a great deal.  Or grab the bronzer brush at at steal.  True story, I keep sunscreen on me at all times.  This Peter Thomas Roth SPF 50 stick would be such a lifesaver to have in my daytime makeup bag especially living in Florida. You cannot beat the price of this compact LED makeup mirror.  Perfect for that quick lipstick check and fix.  The coveted Bombshell curling wand is also part of the Sephora sale.

This item isn’t on sale but have you tried the newest Glamglow mask?  The Flashmud Brightening treatment is the real deal. You have to use it for 3 days in a row, then I swear it has blown any paid facial out of the water.  I am in love.  My skin can get uneven hyper pigmentation color patches and this does such a stellar job of brightening/lightening.  Throughly impressed.  I did some snaps (@meetatthebarre) before and after if you caught it this weekend.  Also, the best part of ordering online with Sephora hello samples and coupon codes.  I always read the reviews of the samples and pick the most bang for your buck sample.  I went with the CONCEAL, can’t wait to try it out!I hope you had a fabulous weekend!  I have some killer posts coming at you this weekend (if I do say so myself).  Make sure to check back tomorrow for my favorite Fall color and how to style it, Costco shopping lists and blogging design tutorials on Thursday.  xoxoxo

    That mexican spot looks so fun! Giant jenga is the best- especially when played while drinking, duh!

  10. Kelly K says:

    I saw “Sephora Sale” in the title of this post and instantly had to read! I had no idea they were having a big sale right now-I think because I’ve been avoiding their emails since they always suck me into spending money! I’ll have to check it out!


  11. Gina says:

    ooh, that Mexican spot looks super cool! There is nothing like the amazing flavors of fresh Tex Mex. Well, except maybe Italian…:)

  12. Owen Davis says:

    That restaurant looks amazing, I’ve never played Jenga like that before but it looks SO fun! Loved keeping up with you via snapchat. I think y’all send the rain to NC today :( Hope you have a great Monday pretty lady! Xoxo

  13. You visit so many fun restaurants! We love going to St. Pete for date night or dinner and drinks with friends. We have a couple favorites but have been wanting to find some new spots. This taco place sounds awesome!

  14. what a great weekend! 3 daughters looks so fun. and that sale! now i need an excuse to buy all the things. haha. i think i definitely need that self tanner. i’m always on the hunt for a great one and i know st tropez is one of the best! happy monday love!

    xoxo cheshire kat

  15. I’m skeptical of ALL Mexican food outside of Texas or SoCal, but that place looks so fun I’d give it a try! And how I wish we had more craft brews here. It seems like Texas is cool with their Bud Light and their Shiner and don’t branch out more than that. Oh well. And hey girl, HEYYYYYYYYYY, do you see that Tart is on the tea tree oil bandwagon (they’ve labeled it in tea tree’s other, fancier name and likely charge 3x what it should cost – that *should* be no more than $13) Yay for mainstream brands realizing how fantastic essential oils are for the skin, right?!

  16. i did not know about the sephora sale!!!! thanks for sharing. and that restaurant looks awesome. always love your pics. you need to do a post on photography!

  17. You should totally get the Bombshell wand! I have it and LOVE it! It seriously holds curls for like 3 days! Off to do some damage at this sale now… ;) Happy Monday!

  18. Love Mexican for a date night! That Sephora sale looks amazing I have no idea how I missed it. Thanks for sharing!

  19. Sounds like a fab weekend to me!! Clearly I should have waited until this week to go Sephora instead of last week. Oh well I had to work haha. And can I ask why can’t you use your beauty insider points towards purchases? They are only good to receive a free gift. I find that annoying. If I’m missing something, please explain lol. Anyway!! That Mexican restaurant looks SOO cute!!! That brewery sounds nice too. Sounds like a perfect weekend to me!! :-) Hope that you have a great day today too lady!

  20. I really want the glamglow mask, but I haven’t taken the plunge yet!

    I need to avert my eyes to that Sephora sale.

  21. Marie says:

    Sounds like it was a fab weekend. Oh I had no idea Sephora was having a sale. I totally want to try that Peter Roth Thomas powder. I heard it works really good. I so need that GlamGlow mask. I love their products. Thanks for posting about it.

  22. Brittany says:

    St Tropez is the only selfless tanner I will use since trying it. Simply the best!

  23. Lindsay says:

    I LOVE the Sephora sale! I need to go to it and order today. I know some people are on the fence with Glam Glow, but I really loved every product of theirs that I have tried!

  24. Yay for the tropical storm losing strength, but we still got tons of rain *ugh*. And you should have said you were coming up our way to Orlando yesterday, would have been fun to meet for a beverage (or two.. or three)!

    And yay for the Sephora sale! I have a post ready for tomorrow for my picks – awesome sale :-D

    Cheers to a fabulous week gurlie <3

  25. Sounds like a fun and productive weekend. Craft breweries are big in Seattle and that one looks awesome. I love that people were playing CAH. Best game ever.
    And the Sephora sale! Sigh. I wish I hadn’t spent all our spending money on back to school clothes for the babes.

  26. Ooo a Sephora sale, definitely need to check that out! That Mexican place looks so good, we LOVE Mexican!

I love when they have stuff so you can entertain yourself while you are there, helps you want to stay longer. They know what they are doing!!! Hope you have a great week!

  35. trish says:

    Is this Sale online too? I live over an hour away from Sephora. * crying emoji . But I always take advantage of the online sales! Been really itching to change up my foundation for fall. (;

    Any place with tacos and I’m in. We recently tried a local Cleveland placed called Barrio Tacos and it’s freaking amazing. Though one taco and I’m sooo full!
