This week has been filled with style, beauty and amazing new friends! Day 1 of the Independent Fashion Bloggers Conference included panels of some of the industry’s most influential. I had so much fun getting my DIY on, sampling Spring beauty, discovering a new obsession (fashionable headphones..crazy chic!) and checking out fab jewelry.

I’ve never been one for on-ear headphones, but Monster has completely changed my perspective. The glam Diamond Tear styles and interchangeable headbands totally won me over, added to my wish list!
