OOTD – Comfortably Glam for New Years

Hello everyone! I can’t believe this will be my final post till the new year. Time has flown unbelievably fast! I am thrilled to begin a new years filled with new ideas, outfits, and reviews! I am also planning on incorporating more makeup looks into my blog. Let me know what you think! On to the outfit post! Today’s pairing focused on merging both comfort and glamour. Many looks for new year incorporate a significant amount of glitter, metallic fabrics, and sequin tops, but personally I prefer a more subdued look with a tiny pop of one of those characteristics. In this case, I decided to focus on the glitter heels as my touch of sparkle for new years. The soft shine and glow adds a festive feel to the outfit without being overbearing. I paired together a tulle skirt and a curved front, cropped sweater. The cut of the top highlights the skirt and adds balance as well as warmth to the outfit. I also find that tulle is amazing for festive occasions. It is …

A Sparkling New Year with Butter London

Hello everyone! I hope you had a wonderful holiday. I had a delightful Christmas with my family and had quite a few surprises under the tree this year! I want to take a moment thank my family and loved ones from everything this holiday. I cherish each and every single gift. Now on to the polish review! I recently stopped by Ulta and finally bought Butter London’s polish in Wallis, which I’ve had my eye on for ages. It has always stood out as an incredibly unique color that I couldn’t seem to find an equivalent for. The closest has been China Glaze’s Wagon Trail but it has a darker green base and less gold glitter running though it. Wallis is an olive toned polish shot with rich gold glitter that gives it an incredible glow in the sunlight. It is a bit sheer with one coat, but after applying a second coat it is fully opaque. The polish is quite easy to work with and spread through out the nail. I applied it over …

OOTD – Dreaming of a Velvet Christmas

Hello everyone! Merry Christmas! I am thrilled to have spent these last few months with you on my blogging journey. The greatest gift has been your support! I hope you enjoy your holiday filled with family, food, fun, and gifts! Now on to my holiday outfit for those of you having a family dinner or Christmas party. Today’s pairing revolves around the rich burgundy velvet skirt. The texture and color truly embodies the warmth of Christmas. To keep the skirt center stage, I added black tights and shoes to keep the bottom half muted. The upper half continues the black theme, but also adds white to brighten up the look without distracting from the skirt. The clutch ties the color in while adding a touch of glamour. This outfit was topped off with a Christmas present bow pin that adds an understated touch of Christmas to the outfit without being overwhelming or appearing childish. As for makeup, I decided to do a soft burgundy smokey eye to capture the color of the skirt using my …

OOTD – A Cozy Holiday in Leopard Print

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful day! Today’s pairing is a cozy take on a spunky holiday look. There is something about leopard print and rich jewel toned colors that pair together beautifully. The leopard print skirt is strong statement piece in this outfit so I wanted to keep it as the focal point using primarily solid blocks of color. The sweater adds a cozy element to the outfit which is perfect for a chilly Christmas evening. I adore the curved front and crop of the sweater. The higher cut hits above the starting point of the skirt flare which aids in highlighting the silhouette of the outfit. The curved front draws emphasis to the belt which allows for the waist to be defined. Due to the rich colors and pattern of the top, I decided to keep the bottom and bag a solid black to keep the rest muted. Well, enough about the outfit! I’m heading home today via train actually. It’ll be my first time traveling by train so wish …

OOTD – Winter Whites and Dusty Pinks

Hello everyone! I hope all of you are great today. It feels wonderful to be back with you all! Today’s pairing was something more casual and simple that would be perfect for lunch with some lovely friends or holiday shopping. I paired the white blouse with a white wool scarf to add not only warmth, but also a visual interest to the upper half of my body without being too jarring against the light colors of the overall outfit. The dusty pink jeans keep the overall look soft while still adding a pinch of vibrancy to the outfit. The white heels tie the upper and lower half together cohesively. Fun picture of the day: A candid photograph while I was doing a few test shots and thought the camera was done snapping pictures! -Outfit-  Merona Double Layer Tee [Target – Similar] Hot Kiss Dusty Pink Jeans [Marshall’s – $15] White Wool Scarf [Gift from Colombia] Until next time.

Ten Holiday Questions Survey!

Hello everyone! I came across this fun little survey and decided to share it with all of you. I’m officially tagging all of you. I can’t wait to see your responses! 1. Do you hang mistletoe? I don’t have mistletoe, but I think it would be cute idea. I may go out and get one for this year! 2. When do you hang your decorations up? After Thanksgiving is usually when my family and I put up decorations. We prefer to enjoy one holiday at a time! 3. Do you open gifts on Christmas Eve? My family and I do celebrate Christmas on the 24th with the big dinner and gathering. At midnight we open out gifts and use the 25th to enjoy our goodies! 4. Real tree or fake tree? For the past few years, my family has been purchasing real trees as opposed to using a fake and I certainly love real far more! 5. What tops your tree? A star. 6. What is on your Christmas wishlist this year? A camera that is a step up from my old point-and-shoot that I’m …

Go Nude this Fall: Nude Nails the Timeless Classic

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a lovely day! How was your Thanksgiving holiday? I had a wonderful time with family enjoying delicious food and company! Today I will be sharing one of my favorite nude nail polishes, OPI’s My Very First Knockwurst. The polish was released in the Fall 2012 OPI Germany Collection along with 11 other shades. It can still be purchased on Amazon! This polish is a unique nude shade as it’s neither a true pink nor a lavender or beige. Rather it is a blend of all of those colors that creates a different visual effect under various lighting as noted in the pictures above. In comparing the polish under natural light vs. camera flash, you can clearly see that certain colors are highlighted in the blend more than others. This polish also glides on smoothly and opaque with one coat, but two is preferable to achieve a more perfected look. It is long lasting and quite resilient to chipping. I also absolutely love this polish for toes, as I prefer a …

Revlon’s Black Cherry Super Lustrous Lipstick Review

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing well! I apologize for the recent disappearance. I have been home preparing for Thanksgiving with my family and enjoying my small break. I have been searching for the perfect “vampy” lip color for the fall and winter season; I came across Revlon’s Super Lustrous lipstick in Black Cherry and I will be sharing my opinion on the product. The lipstick can be purchased at your local drugstore for  $5.00 and is part of their permanent collection. You can purchase the lipstick here as well. Pros: The color glides on smoothly. Has the ability to be worn sheer or opaque depending on your preference. A wine color that is perfect for the holiday and fall/winter seasons. The affordable price makes it readily available for all budget ranges. Packaging is lightweight, simple, and classically designed. Cons: The lipstick lacks the amount of pigment I was expecting. It has a nice color, but it pales it comparison to what I thought when I looked at the lipstick bullet. I feel this lipstick is …

OOTD – Spice Up Thanksgiving with a Dash of Leopard Print

Hello everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful day. I was finally able to enjoy a beautiful afternoon after what seemed like an endless amount of gray skies, rain, and wind. Today’s outfit is geared toward styling a casual yet pulled together look for Thanksgiving. Here I paired a cream 3/4 length sleeve button down with dark wash jeans. Why I love this blouse for the holidays is that since it has a loose fit it allows for movement and leaves a bit of extra room to eat delicious Thanksgiving food (I’m especially thrilled for apple pie, yum!). The focal point of the outfit is the light, chiffon scarf. It has a combination of prints and colors making it an eye catching statement piece against a simple blouse. Since the scarf has leopard print rimming the peach floral design, I decided to play with a leopard print shoe and bag to keep the theme going through out the rest of the outfit. To top it off I added my Revlon lipstick in Black Cherry …
