I am a jewelry and accessories lover, and it’s where I usually spend the most money. I love jewelry pieces that are simple and will stand the test of time. I love to layer, stack and dress up my basic a** outfits. I don’t do prints – I do jewels. So just in time for Christmas, I thought I’d share the top three jewelry brands I most often purchase from, with the hope that you will find the perfect gift for that special someone on your list. Or perhaps you can add more sparkle to your own jewelry collection. I am all about gift-giving to myself! Now, there are a lot of great jewelry brands out there, but these are the three I have found to be both high in quality without a super high price tag.read more
Fall fashion is finally here, folks. It is my favorite time of year! But, you already know that, and no I don’t mind sounding like a broken record. I already have a lot of pieces I am excited to wear again from last autumn/winter like my white ankle boots and teddy coat. I do not plan to buy a whole lot this season because I simply don’t need it. I have some great pieces in my current wardrobe, patiently awaiting my return. I want to focus my monies on saving, travel and decorating our new place. So, here is a list of items I’ll be re-wearing, and what is on my wishlist. I plan to buy gently used or resale when possible. read more
Hey guys! I’m back. It’s been a minute as I have been in transition since starting a new job. You know how that is. But I’m back in the swing of things and so excited to start blogging regularly again about the things I love and are on my heart to share. This week it is all about white t-shirts. It is finally starting to heat up here in Los Angeles and white tees are becoming the focal point of my outfit. Whether I pair them with the infamous leopard midi-length skirt of the year or a structured pair of lightweight trousers, I am very selective.
I don’t like spending $100 on the perfect white t-shirt, I think that is insane and unnecessary. A t-shirt can’t be THAT amazingly soft. It just can’t. So, as an avid tee wearer, here are my top picks you can’t go wrong with – and as a bonus, they are better for the environment and/or won’t hurt your pockets.read more
The temperature is dropping and It finally feels like fall in LA – my favorite time of year. Bring on the HOT Dirty Chai and long evenings. Fall fashion makes me very happy. I am excited to build layers, rock my many variations of black leather boots, and a vampy lip. And I’m ready for my mom to ask me why I wear so much black, LOL. For me, it’s the best time to express myself through style.
I already own a lot of great pieces from last year that I am excited to style again, but I am also looking forward to adding a few more pieces to refresh my fall wardrobe. I don’t believe in buying an entire new closet worth of clothes every season. I have pieces I love and wear year after year, so only a few items are necessary. Having less to work with allows me to be more creative with my personal style. So, check out what’s on my short list!read more
I want to share a few of my favorite things as of late. And maybe I should start sharing this more often. Since it’s my first time doing this, it is quite an exhaustive list. It ranges from hair and beauty to fashion and everything in between. Enjoy and feel free to comment. Hopefully, you see something you want to check out.
I also need to do a quick write up on our Park City experience during the holidays. I am so geeked to visit again next year. Park City is such an amazing little town with excellent food and activity. And I cannot wait to share with you all.
Oversized button ups are a thing for me. I first fell in love with an old Ann Taylor one I had for years that I, unfortunately, had to get rid of because it was too worn out. Then, Aritzia had a sale and I stumbled upon these two babies. The quality is THE BEST. I believe this is a chic staple everyone should have in their wardrobe. You can wear them so many different ways. I cannot live without at least one.
My hubby surprised me with these for Christmas, and I died. I was totally not expecting such an incredible shoe. Between these and the red booties, they have been the only shoes I’ve worn for the last two months. And I love that I don’t see a lot of people wearing them.
Can Dermalogica make anything I don’t like? I mean, really. Almost my entire skincare regimen is Dermalogica, and adding this wonderful oil has helped so much with dehydrated skin. I tried this before as I got it free through work. And then I just didn’t buy it again. Why? I have no idea. It’s expensive as hell but worth it. It’s lightweight and great for your skin. I use it at night and during the day by mixing it with my tinted moisturizer in the mornings, and it gives me that perfect healthy glow without doing too much and looking greasy.read more
I am so excited for fall fashion. I love me some summer, but you can have so much more fun with layers, boots, metallics.. AHHH…the outfit opportunities are endless. And what I love most about living in LA is that I can still incorporate my summer clothes for various looks. However, the question is, how do I update my wardrobe with the pieces I want/love the most and getting through the last month and a half of paying off my debt? I am right at the finish line, but my wardrobe needs a major overhaul.read more
