The Liebster Award

I am incredibly honored (and totally blushing as I write this) to say that Jessica from Semi- Sweet Tooth, has nominated me for a Liebster Award. I had no idea this award existed, but this award is a way to honor blogs that you believe are on the right path that fave 500 followers or less. You then link back to the blog that nominated you as a way to thank them and then answer the questions they have provided for you. Next you pass the award ...

Favorite Lip Colors

 1. Bite Beauty in Honey Berry, this is a great neutral that isn’t quite the same color as mine skin so it doesn’t make my lips disappear. This is one of my go to colors! I plan on trying other colors from Bite Beauty because this lipstick is amazing 2. NARS Roman Holiday, a sheer bubble pink color. It’s very subtle, but adds a beautiful color. I love the texture of this one because it is not drying. This is my other go to ...

Daytime Little Black Dress

jacket: (old) similar here, dress: (old) similar here, wedges: Shoemint (old) kind of similar here, clutch: Rebecca Minkoff, sunglasses: Ray Ban (they are on sale!) The little black dress isn’t just for night time! I found this simple black dress last year at Nordstrom in the Savvy Trends department and I didn’t even spend over $30! And it’s super comfy since it’s a stretchy material. I’ve actually worn it more ...

I have many outfits planned around these earrings because the color is so bright and ...

Pop of Pink

jacket: here , tank top: here, jeans: here, shoes: here (on sale here!), purse (old) similar: here, here and here, necklaces: here and here, bracelets: Alex and Ani Today’s post is another casual look, that’s comfy yet stylish (don’t mind my collar, kind of rushed to put the jacket on). All simple pieces brought together with the bright pop of pink. I found this Metal Corner Clutch by Rebecca Minkoff almost two years ago on ...

Casual Weekend

Graphic tee: (old) but loving this, this and this, jeans: Paige Denim, purse: Rebecca Minkoff, shoes: Shoemint (old) similar style here and here, sunglasses: Ray-Ban, lipstick: Honey Berry Graphic tees are one of my favorite items of clothing to wear because they can be dressed up or down. They make for a perfect outfit on the weekend. I bought this one last year at Nordstrom, so unfortunately it’s no longer available, but Nordstrom ...

Alex and Ani Bangles

One of my best friends and photographer, Lianna Piccetti, introduced me to her obsession with Alex and Ani bangles. Now it has become my obsession and I love having them stacked on my arm! The bangles are unique and allow you to express yourself with these dainty accessories. Each bangle is infused with positive energy and also has symbolic meaning. Although I love buying them for myself, they also make great gifts! Here are few more ...
