This little look has been one of my absolute favorites! I loved wearing it all day. This blazer is so perfect. It is a beautiful houndstooth pattern, a nice change up from the grey plaid look. I got this jacket from Primp Boutique and just adore it. The leather pants make a perfect match. I have actually had them for a couple years now. As you know,  I have to have my jeans/pants high-waisted and these hit the mark. I bought these for about $20 from an H&M sale and it has been one of my best purchases.

What’s the most important attribute in a beauty product to me? It would definitely have to be packaging. Now it still has to be a fantastic product, but what catches my eye is definitely what starts me on a new product path. It’s like love at first sight.  Being by Sanctuary definitely caught my eye when I was looking around Ulta for it. The branding is so fun and very rock star!

I received four products from the Being by Sanctuary collection. First of all, I received the Shower Burst in Hibiscus & Coconut Water. By far Hibiscus & Coconut Water was my favorite scent. I have a new found love for hibiscus and have always been a huge coconut fan. I absolutely loved how it came out like a mouse. It was so fun to use in the shower. I definitely recommend applying with a loofah to help disperse the Shower Burst. Secondly, I received the Body Scrub Cloudberry & Lychee Blossom. I especially love this product because I think that exfoliating your entire body is essential. Deeply cleaning your skin is very important, especially in the winter when your skin is so much more dry. A good scrub followed by immediate lotion after a shower is all your skin needs in the winter time. Thirdly, I received the Body Lotion in Salted Caramel Macadamia. Talk about a kid in a candy store! This scent is so scrumdiddlyumptious, I find myself putting it on just for fun. Lastly, I received a Hand Cream in Chilli Mango & Tonka Bean. I actually really loved the scent, it’s surprisingly refreshing. The small  hand cream is perfect to carry with me on-the-go. I additionally received this gorgeous makeup bag. I can not get over the branding, it is way too cute.

Overall I’d say hands down, the Shower Burst is my absolute favorite. It’s super fun and smells like perfection. You can check out the collection at select Ulta stores and online.

By the end of this year like many of you, I feel like I am just going through the motions. I’ve come to a point with my blog where I feel comfortable, but I think with the start of the New Year I want to kick it up a notch!  I’m going to expect a little more from myself  not only in my blog, but also with my health.

First things first, content.

I want to make my blog content more meaningful. I love sharing where to shop the look with you all, but I want to give you more. I am going to do a monthly trend report with shoppable links so each and everyone of you can stay up to date with me. Secondly, I am going to have a post every month of items that I’m shopping. Lastly I want to add in some of my experiences in New York, Fashion Funny posts where I can show you hilarious trends I’m loving, beauty products I’m obsessing over and of course the usual outfit posts.

Secondly, I want to commit to certain frequencies.

I want to engage with you all on Instagram more. I intend on spending an hour on Sundays dedicated to commenting on all of your lovely pictures. Yay IG fam! I also want to get more into posting Instagram stories. I am going to try to post at least one story a day. On top of all that I want to post 1 YouTube video a month.

Thirdly, kicking up my health.

To keep up the momentum from my blog, I want to kick up my health. This last year since moving to New York and starting my first big girl job I have not been hiting the gym as much. I miss my muscular bootay and am looking foward to getting back to it at least twice a week, even if that means toning exercises in my apartment. Additionally, I want to make sure that I am taking my daily vitamins for a healthy body. I might even watch some of those scary documenteries on Netflix (i.e. Hungry For Change) to scare me into at least taking my vitamins.

Thanks for reading along and hopefully we will see you around more often!

Let me know some of your New Years resolutions in the comments, whether that be fashion, health, blogging, whatever!

And as always,

My one rule for New Years Eve? Metallics. A touch of metallic or in my case all metallic is the way to go. I got this amazing BCBG dress from Century 21 Stores for $50! I was really looking for a slip dress this NYE, definitely an item that will be trending this upcoming season. I paired it with my favorite metallic mules and my new favorite fur coat. I got this coat from Michael Kors for only $200, it was originally $400 and I’m a little obsessed. I topped it off with some statement earrings and Voilá, NYE ready.

It’s holiday shopping time and getting gifts is hard. I don’t know if you’ve ever used Hautelook before,  but the deals are amazing. You can always find amazing quality products at a fraction of the cost. Now those of you that have used Hautlelook, may not have noticed that they also have a beauty section as well. Getting your favorite  beauty products at low prices is so ideal, especially when getting gifts. There are some amazing items on the site like this year long supply of 24K masks and this tarte cosmetics eye shadow palette. You can really find the perfect beauty gifts for your besties. Getting glam for the holidays is a necessity, so why not give a little glam?

I am obsessed with this look. This jacket is my favorite piece I own right now. It is a head-turner and makes any simple outfit look fantastic. I like that this plaid has a hint of brown in it. It is almost the grey-plaid trend but a little different.

The black turtleneck is another piece that I’ve been drooling over. I want so many turtlenecks this season. It might also have to do with the recent video by Racked about dressing like a rom-com divorcee for a week. Loved the looks inspired by the divorcees in this video. It has put turtlenecks on my it-list.

The pajama trend has been in for over a year now, so when Adore Me reached out I was so excited to receive some loungewear. The safest way to style this look is with a casual pair of jeans. I tucked the front part of it in to give it a more polished look.

This pajama top from Adore Me is so soft and fits like a gem. It’s great to wear such a comfortable and trendy top out and about.

Thanksgiving is here and there are two things on my mind besides what pants will give me the most room to stuff myself: What I will be wearing and what I will be drinking.

Holidays are for the statement blouses and I am obsessed with this black wrap top. It has a sweetheart neckline sewn into the top to create an ultra flattering look. I added a dark red lip to get in the holiday spirit and it took my dark look to something more festive.

Now we all know that I love a good cocktail and vodka just so happens to be my drink of choice. For this holiday season I wanted to make a cider-based drink. I added a shot and a half of Purity Vodka. This vodka is so crisp and the look of it is so sophisticated. I added a cinnamon stick and covered the rim with brown sugar. A sweet holiday drink made with Purity Vodka. 👌🏻  Happy holidays everyone and have a great Thanksgiving with this recipe!

COCKTAIL BREAKDOWN: 1.5 shots of Purity Vodka

1 cup cider

1 cup brown sugar for the rim, sprinkled a pinch in the drink too 😉

( Trick: Wet the rim of the empty glass, lay the brown sugar on a plate, twist the damp martini glass in the brown sugar and then pour your drink in the glass)

2 cinnamon sticks

(Trick: I stuck one inside the other so the stick would jut out)

SHOP MY LOOK: Metisu Wrap Top / Asos Crop Jean / Asos Booties / Bite Lip  Side Note: I am obsessed with black booties and I bought two more pairs on Nasty Gal, everything is 50% off!  I got a pair of boots for $15! Seriously you should check out.

Hey guys! A short and sweet post for you this week. I put a little twist on my regular look. I went with a printed tie jacket to spice up my favorite high neck top. I then added a bit of contrast with this perfect yellow bag. I love this yellow tone with its 70’s look and the polka dots with the retro vibes. I definitely think the two pieces are complimenting each other well. Shop the pieces below!
