Sparkly Holiday Look

Christmas is near, which means it's the perfect time to wear sparkly stuff (and who doesn't love sparkle?): makeup, clothes, shoes , etc etc.

 To get this look I used:

Eyes - Stila's Kitten eyeshadow (all over the lid and up to the brow)
Urban Decay's NAKED palette in the colors: Sidecar (lightly on top of kitten), Half Baked (Outer half of lid), Hustle (crease), and Creep (outer crease). 
MAC's Blacktrack fluid line for a winged-out liner  
Smashbox's Lash DNA mascara
(You could also use a green liner or shadow to line your waterline to give a pop of color and to make it look a little more Christmas-y)
Lips - Revlon's Super Lustrous lipgloss in Lilac Pastelle
Blush - Bella Bamba blush by Benefit

This look isn't crazy sparkly (and really pretty simple), so you could wear this wherever you would like, but look out for more posts because I will be showing you how to achieve the perfect holiday sparkly eyes <3


Cardigan - Mossimo
Jeans- Hydrolic
Shoes - MIA
Bag - Merona

I had class today, so I went with a pretty simple look. I love those shoes and bag though, I think they stand out well =)

Hope y'all have a fantastic start to the week!


"I Told You to be Patient, I Told You to be Fine"

Dress- Kimchi Blue (Urban Outfitters)
Knit Cardigan - H&M
Shoes - Steve Madden Black Heels
Bag - New Directions

Oh, the end of another week. I would like to know where the time is flying... Thanksgiving is a few days away and Christmas is just around the corner, isn't that crazy?

This morning was definitely not a very good one. It took me an hour to find an outfit that I didn't hate and I was late for church (I hate being late for anything), I just wasn't feeling well, and of course I got stuck driving behind the slowest drivers in existence (that's an overstatement, I'm just too dramatic), but I've decided I'm not letting this stuff wreck the rest of my day. The weather is too beautiful and there is too much stuff to be thankful for, and it would be a shame for me to decide not to be happy because of some meaningless things that have happened.

I hope y'all have a fantastic Sunday despite anything that may be trying to hold your happiness back. Lets make it a good day =)

J'aime Automne

Top - L.O.L. Vintage (no idea why they would name it that)
Cami - Forever21
Jeans - Levi's

I love this top. The graphic is fantastic, and it's sparkly. What more could you ask for? And the weather was amazing today and the colors from the leafs are stunning, so I decided I needed to take pictures.

Hope y'all are having a fabulous week so far!

How gorgeous is this? I love Fall.

Here are some of my favorite things from this past month!

1. Tiffany & Co. sterling silver mini bow pendent (16'' chain) - I bought this at Tiffany's in NYC and have been wearing it pretty much every single day since. It's gorgeous. Buy it here: http://www.tiffany.com/Shopping/Item.aspx?sku=GRP02669

2. Rusk Deep Shine Oil - I use this every single day. All you need is a tiny amount of the oil and it makes your hair soft, smooth, and shiny all day long. Get it here: http://www.deepshineoil.com/index.php?show=product

3. Vera Wang Princess - I've loved this perfume for a long time, but this month I've been using it pretty much nonstop. Smells amazing, and the bottle is just so cute! Buy it here: http://sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P157026&categoryId=B70

4. O.P.I. Nail Polishes - Specifically in the color "Big Apple Red". These polishes always have such a great formula and the brush makes it so easy  to paint your nails with minimal mess.

5. Stila lip glazes - Gorgeous Fall colors with an amazing non-sticky consistency and long lasting wear. Buy them here:  http://www.stilacosmetics.com/product_detail.asp?PMID=235&dept=4&cat=13

New Obsession

You know those sites that you sign up for and instantly become obsessed with? Well, that has happened to me.. and I just signed up yesterday.


Pinterest has apparently been around for a little while, but I just heard about it yesterday when talking to my sister and I'm hooked. You can create different "boards" and pin pictures and sayings to each one. It's basically like creating a virtual collage; it's super fun... and super addictive!
