On My Radar: By Horses and Heels

Today we are extremely lucky to have Raquel from Horses & Heels taking part in our first guest post series. Raquel is friendly, charming, and an animal lover (one of our favorite characteristics in people). She recently made a huge announcement about quitting her day job and focusing more of her energy to her blog so expect even more great things to come from her in the near future.

Hi everyone, it’s Raquel from the blog Horses & Heels. I’m delighted to be guest posting for you today, thank you Tracy & Jessica for this opportunity! I had a lot of fun doing this post. I used some of my old Instagram photos & took some new ones too! It was like doing a scavenger hunt through my house.

Here are my “On My Radar” Items

Favorite item of fashion – It is such a toss up, but I’m crushing on this purple dress that I recently purchased from Express & the Sorrelli necklace (technically the necklace is an accessory but who’s taking notes ; ) In fact, Sorrelli is a brand that I recently discovered & now love. FINAL ANSWER.

Favorite accessory – My snaffle bit bracelet paired with this gold spike bracelet. I get to express my edgy & equestrian side in once shot.

Who I’m listening to – I currently LOVE Ellie Goulding’s song Anything Could Happen

Favorite guilty pleasure show – The Real Housewives of Miami, or any of the Real Housewive shows, I just can’t get enough!

Favorite Quote – “Don’t ever let anyone dull your sparkle”

Favorite Flower – Roses, they are a classic & I save all of my old ones.

Favorite Getaway – Anywhere I can go that I get to see between these ears. Riding is always like a mini getaway each time I get on. Although I seriously do enjoy hotel getaways.

Book I’m reading right now – I haven’t officially started this book yet, it was a Christmas gift but I’m going to be reading it soon – Angel Horses, it’s about the bond between a horse & their rider.

Favorite Food – Sushi!!!!!! I could eat it every day.

Favorite Store – Only one??? I’m totally a TJ Maxx girl or a “Maxionista”. I also love Anthro, Sephora, PFI Western Store, & Guess.

Home D├ęcor Crush – my turquoise lamps for my desk. $20 from that fabulous place called TJ Maxx : )

Favorite Lipstick – I don’t have a favorite, although I have been rocking some Korres red lipstick lately.

Favorite stationary – Anything that I can get my hands on, I’m always taking notes & making to do lists.

My favorite source of Inspiration Pinterest, magazines & The Glitter Guide!
