This year was the first year that I wasn’t home with all of my moms Christmas decor and I have to say, it was pretty hard for me!Continue reading
If you know me, you know I love Kim Kardashian West, always have, always will. That’s why, whenever she comes out with another product that I am interested in, I have to test it out.Continue reading
HI EVERYONE! It’s been a while xx
I’ve been so busy in the best best way ever and I feel like I want to use this post to not only catch up, but also talk about my most favorite basic but classic outfit.
Happy Sunday all!!
I’ve been MIA on the blog lately…….
I write when I am inspired, I write when I have time and I write because I want to. Sadly and unfortunately, I haven’t had any of that recently. However, instead of being upset about it (I was for like, 2 mins), I’m just going to accept it and move on.
That’s why, I am writing to you TODAY! It’s a Sunday and I have nothing to do, so I am going to write…about Valentine’s Day of all things! I know last year I put out two gift guides, and that was awesome and you all really liked it. However, when I think about what I just wrote about inspiration, I did not feel inspired to write a gift guide this year and here’s why…
Valentine’s Day is awesome and for the most part, I really enjoy it. Mostly because I am in a relationship and have a reason to celebrate love, but also because a day devoted to love and commitment is really nice and chivalrous in a way, which we don’t see much of anymore.
However, I wanted to just go back to the basics this Valentine’s Day and instead of promote my favorite things and the best gifts, just talk about ways to share an evening with the person you love.
I get home from work really late every night so I don’t get to see my significant other as much as I would like. That’s why this Valentine’s Day, if he dropped by with some roses and a hug and asked me to hangout and watch one of our Netflix shows, I would be more than happy with that idea of a V-Day. Come the weekend, if we wanted to grab a bite to eat and share a glass of wine together, I would love that too. It seems like this year more than any year, the holidays, my birthday and Valentine’s Day all seem really close together. The last thing I need is another gift — if I am being completely honest. (I’ll regret saying that when it’s the middle of July and I’ve gone gift-less for five months and still have another 6 gift-less months ahead of me). I guess it’s because the fact that I am working full time now, time just seems to fly by. The bottom line is, what I want most this Valentine’s Day is to spend time with my guy, enjoy a glass of wine and relax. I’d like to reflect on love, and that’s how I am taking it back to the basics this year.
No gift guide, no favorite things — just plain ol’ blogging and loving.
Today is my birthday and I am so excited! I just wanted to pop on to say hi and share a little bit about my aspirations for 23.
Hi everyone and Happy Monday!
Today I am sharing some of the spots that I’ve had luck taking photos at in the past. For bloggers, you have to have this shield over you when you’re taking pics because 9/10 times there will be either one or more people staring at you while you strike a pose. I have honestly gotten over it and it never really bothered me that much in the first place. It’s like yeah, I have a good outfit on, this is a cool background and I’m trying to grow my blog…is that cool with you? If not, keep walking. If you’re interested, here take my business card!
That leads me to WHERE these places are! I am based in CT, so most of these places are in Connecticut or surrounding areas. I hope this helps!
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!
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.
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!
This look is sort of casual, but still dressy and works for almost any hangout with friends or family. The shirt is satin-y feeling and a burnt orange color, and I paired it with black jeans for a very night time look. In this shot, I am wearing pointed toe heels (I know, not reallllly suitable for this particular weather, but they could be come spring time!) Though I have the heels on, if it is cold, feel free to switch them out for some booties or thigh highs with a heel.
I originally intended to do a low bun with some gold hoops for this outfit, but it completely slipped my mind when I was at the photoshoot! Hair down or up however, I feel that either works.
I cannot wait to wear this outfit when it actually gets a little warmer permanently, but a gal can wish!
Happy Friday everyone! How are you spending your Friday night?
Hi everyone! It’s officially one week until Christmas, which means it’s about that time to quit procrastinating, and wrap those darn gifts! Over the years I’ve come to realize that people either LOVE to wrap or they absolutely dread it. Me? I love it!
Ever since I was little, I always helped my mom and my grandma wrap gifts and I’ve come to enjoy it. There’s something completely satisfying about turing a gift you got someone into a pretty present and seeing it come together.
Since my wrapping technique works for me, I decided it is a good time to share it with all of you. Who is ready? Let’s get wrapping:
Today I’m talking faux fur! I had a feeling faux fur was going to be in this year, and I was right! This jacket is really cute—but there’s a story behind it…of course! Back in September, I was gifted a gift card from Citizen’s Bank through social media, for Amazon! I was so excited, and wanted to use it to do a little Amazon clothing haul. I ordered three items, this coat being one of them. Two weeks after I ordered, the first two items came (from China) and they were so small, poor quality, and looking NOTHING like how they were displayed. This coat was shipped separately and JUST came last week!! Though it took a long time, I was really happy with the fact that it fit, it’s super cute and nice quality. Enough with the back story, let’s get into this look!
