All Dressed And Ready To Go | Style Post


Hey Loves! 

I use to wear dresses or skirts to work all the time and I'm not sure why I stopped but I did. I work with kids so maybe all the sitting on the floor had something to do with it? Not sure BUT I did have the bright idea to wear a dress today. My Aunt actually gifted me this cute gray quilted dress the other day. Actually, now that I think of it- it wasn't REALLY a gift. She claimed she bought it for herself but it ended up being too short. Lucky for me, I'm short. I saw it hanging in my closet last night and thought today would be the perfect day to wear it. I mean, it was about 50 degrees in NYC today. What better day? 

Moving on..............

Since the dress was short sleeved, I paired it with my favorite crop sweater from Express and some opaque tights. I knew it was a long time since I wore a dress because I got so many compliments. (Thanks co-workers). 

Check out today's look.

Coat: Sam Edelman/ Dress: Gift/ Sweater: Express/ Stockings: Express/ Bag: Zara Necklace: Baublebar


Even though i'm in a dress, I was actually totally comfortable today. I wanted to get in at least one style post before the holidays and I thought this outfit was perfect! I love adding sweaters over my dresses because it really does change the look of the dress. I can wear this dress again, differently by adding an open front cardigan!  On a side note: details on my Reindeer Nails will be up soon! 

Until next time......................

Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit | Review


Hey Loves!

We all know what the most important thing on our face is and if you don't, I will gladly tell you. It's your BROWS. There are a plethora of different (HILARIOUS) pictures of people with messed up brows floating around the internet. Just google "funny eyebrow pictures" and it will prove my point.

Moving on.........

I have been using the same brow product for about a year now. The other day I finally ran out of it and that was perfect timing to try out the Billion Dollar Brows Best Sellers Kit. This kit is exclusively for Kohls and It comes with EVERYTHING you would need to hook up your brows!


I normally would have to buy all these things separately, so it's nice to find a reasonably priced kit with everything!

Includes:

  • Universal Brow Pencil: Which is made to use with all skin tones and hair colors and comes with a spoolie on the other end.
  • Brow Duo Pencil: This brow duo pencil is 1/2 Highlighter and 1/2 Concealer
  • Smudge Brush: This brush is used to blend the pencil. (I used it to blend the concealer)
  • Brow Gel: Lightweight and non-flaking gel


The first day I used it, I was totally impressed. The kit states that it can be used with "any skin tone or hair type" and since I have pretty dark brows, I wasn't sure it was going to work. It worked perfectly and blends so nicely. My normal brow routine consisted of brow pencil then brow gel- The Billion Dollar Brows brow pencil has a little bit of a waxy consistency so I really didn't need the gel! As you can see in the picture below, my eyebrows look totally natural.


I added the gel (even though I really didn't need it) and it kept everything in place- Just the way I like it. The kit retails for $34.99 which is a $68 VALUE! You can find this kit plus more here. The holidays is RIGHT around the corner and this would be the perfect stocking stuffer for your beauty obsessed lady! 

Until next time...............

But The Snow's Just SO Delightful | Style Post

Hey Loves! 

Every year I go Upstate for Thanksgiving to spend it with the boyfriend and his family.  It's always a great time and I always leave SO full. It's bittersweet. This year wasn't any different- EXCEPT, we were graced with SNOW! It doesn't matter how many times I see snow covered trees, without failing- I am amazed. Sometimes the hustle of NYC gets me down BUT then, there's snow covered grounds that make me love that I live in a state where all the seasons are experienced.  

Moving on..........

I kept my look simple but festive. When I bought this dress, it reminded me of Cher Horowitz from the movie "Clueless". I mean, minus the overly tightness. I added my newest faux fur vest to add some texture and warmth. See, I'm practical when getting dressed!

Check out my LOOK! 

Dress: Polly & Esther/ Vest: Miss London/ Stockings: Strawberrys/ Necklace: Mandee/ 
Boots: Express/
Bracelet: Little Black Bag/ Ring: H&M/ Lipstick: MAC "Living Legend" + Burgundy Lipliner/ Eyes; Urban Decay Naked Palette



The outfit went well together and adding a colorful pair of stockings gave it that EXTRA boost! Comfy, cozy and chic! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend! Be back soon with more goodies! Until next time........

Feeling Like An Indian Summer | Fall Street Style

Hey Loves!

I know it has been awhile since I posted a Street Style Look or an Outfit of the Day BUT I have been busy with work and my weekends come and go so FAST. My work schedule changed this year so by the time I get home from work, I lose all sunlight. Blah blah blah, I swear I'm not here to complain! I'm actually super stoked to share a style post with you guys! I mean, how many nail polish and lipstick posts can someone really read/look at? Well, let me know when I hit that point...k? Thanks! 

Moving on.................

This weather is so crazy lately. One day it's 60 degrees and then the next day it's arctic cold (is that a term?). Luckily for me, this past weekend was gorgeous. Especially Sunday- it felt unseasonably warm (hence the title of this post). The bf and I really haven't had the time to do anything exciting so we decided to head down to the West Village in Manhattan. We did our normal- shopping, eating and taking pictures. I wasn't in total love with my outfit but he LOVED it for some strange reason. I was just happy that I could break out my funky tights and not freeze my legs off! 

Check out my latest look! 



Jacket & Leggings: Strawberry/ Sweater & Scarf: Old Navy/ Dress & Necklace: Mandee/ Sunglasses: Ray Ban/ Shoes: Hautelook/ Bag: H&M (I added the studs)/ Lipstick: Cyber by MAC & Burgundy Lip Liner by MAC







I am almost positive the weather will get a bit colder soon. If not, I still have a lot of cute dresses and faux leather jackets to wear! More to come! Until next time.......................

L'oreal Sparkling Soriee Collection Swatches

Hey Loves!

Nail polish is one of my favorite things to buy. It's right up there with black booties and red lipstick. I always peruse the beauty aisle when entering the drugstore and my main focus is nail polish. While exploring my local Rite-Aid one day, I came across the new L'oreal Holiday Sparkling Soiree Collection. I walked by a fully stocked display and I felt like it was whispering my name. So, I stopped and bought it all. I personally love the L'oreal Colour Riche formula. It's one of my favorites. It goes on smooth and the color always lasts a long time. I ran home (ok, I lied... I walked) and quickly swatched each polish!


Check out my swatches! 
*Photos are unedited and taken with a flash*
 "Hit The Slopes" paired with "Snow Ball"

"Tuxedo Noir" paired with "24-Carat"

"Bring The Rubies" paired with "Pink Party Dress"

"Almost Midnight" paired with "Midnight Fireworks" (my favorite combo)
________________________________________________________
This L'oreal collection is truly gorgeous and perfect for the winter season. I wasn't sure if I was going to keep it all because I thought I might have some colors that were similar. Turns out that I didn't own anything that was the same or even close. Minus the white polish, of course. I kept it all and happy I did. I never like to have "plain nails" but these colors are so beautiful, they can stand alone! 
Check out your local drugstore for the Sparkling Soriee Collection! Until next time.............

Golden Days

Hey Loves, 

I got an amazing deal on this cashmere sweater at my local boutique awhile back. I was super excited because it was legit thirty bucks. When purchasing it, I kept thinking of all the ways I could fit it into my life. How many times I could dress it up and how many times it will keep me warm under my leather bomber jacket (because I refuse to break out a heavier coat). So far I have at least one. I paired it with my favorite camo jacket and boyfriend jeans. My hair was a mess, so I added my favorite Ricky's NYC headband. Check out my look! 

Jacket: Urban Outfitters/ Sweater: Local Boutique/ Necklace: Local Boutique/ Denim: Old Navy/ Shoes: Old Navy/ Bag: Old Navy/ Sunglasses: Ray Bans/ Headband: Ricky City for Ricky's 


I love finding a good deal on something that can work in my closet so many different ways. This sweater will be on full rotation! Until next time................
