So happy I popped over to Colourpop.com

Hey everyone! I figured it’s about darn time I wrote a blog post about one of the very true loves in my life, Colourpop Cosmetics.

I want to say one and a half years ago, my good friend Sarah (hi Sar) introduced me to Colourpop, and since then I think I have surpassed her obsession with them into a full blown Colourpop junkie. Although, I am pretty sure we both have the same amount of Matte Lippies from them. (I am up to 12, and no I have ZERO shame in that…they’re ONLY $6!!!)

Hidden Gems

IMG_8019Happy Sunday, everyone! Today I am writing about how and where to find the best pieces, that fit your style and wardrobe!

The idea for this blog post came to mind, because in the picture above, I am wearing a $4 sweater that I found at the place my grandma lives! It goes to show that you don’t have to be looking in the trendiest place to find such a gem. This sweater probably has a story that I may or may not want to know about, but the fact that it is mine now is so cool to me!

KISS: Keep it Simple Sista

IMG_7691

Welcome back, everyone! Tonight I am sharing a simple, yet chic look, that has become one of my go-to’s this winter. Between the cold and unpredictable weather, I want to keep covered at all TIMES! With that being said, I am obsessed with turtlenecks. They are so comfortable and cute. They are also quite stylish because I don’t think a lot of people wear them or think to wear them!

So When Can I Move to Florida?!

Hi gals and guys! It’s been a while since I wrote a blog post, I’ve been on vacation! I know, I know, no one wants to hear how AMAZING the weather was in Fort Lauderdale, but seriously, it was amazing.

If you’re in your 20s and haven’t gone on vacation with your parents as an adult, I highly recommend it. You guys, parents are awesome! (at least mine are?!) We decided a week and a half before our departure that we were going to take a mini trip and it was the best decision…EVER!

Let’s get into some looks I had going on and my favorite spots in Fort Lauderdale! I am seriously considering Florida now for my future because of how nice it was this past week.

Going Out? Here’s a Look!

IMG_7568

Hey everyone! I don’t know about you, but here in CT, we are getting so much rain today! The upside? It’s 50 DEGREES! Last week we were seeing temperatures like -10, so this is quite the treat.

For my rainy day blues, I usually like to cheer myself up by writing a blog post and sharing some outfit inspiration. A couple days ago, I took some photos for my blog with my friend, and fellow blogger, Samantha Glasow! Check out her website, samanthaglasow.com for more!

Opposite to my usual Friday nights, I am actually going out on the town tonight! I figured, what better, than to share a “night out” with you all. Here it goes!

It’s Been Really Cold…How I Keep Up!

It’s officially FREEZING! Here in CT, we are dealing with temperatures that feel like -6 degrees and sometimes colder. I know people from other parts of New England that are dealing with temperatures as low as -30 degrees with windchill (S/O to my brother & his girlfriend who are SO COLD in Vermont!)

Though its cold, I have been trying to keep up with my style because …isn’t beauty pain or something? Either way, I like to dress for winter, so I don’t let the cold temperatures stop me. My theory? Anything you wear, you can always throw a huge coat over and then you’re probably wearing more layers than anyone else anyways.

I am breaking down three looks for you that I’ve worn over the past week — what I am wearing and how I stood the cold in them. Let’s get going!

My 2017 in Review: Blog Edition

IMG_4326.JPG

Welcome back, everyone and Happy New Year! I took a bit of a break from my blog to enjoy the holidays with my family and friends, but now that it’s 2018, I couldn’t be more excited to be back.

I thought I’d ring in the new year by doing a sort of reflection, but instead of on my life, on the expansion and growth of my blog! I have to say, 2017 was a big year for Breakfast at Raes.
