I'm all about a simple ballet flat that makes an outfit look put together. They are a perfect everyday shoe that's versatile and comfortable. For extra detail, a cap toe adds a dressy touch from your average one color shoe. Flats are great for transitioning from your warm winter boots to your fun spring shoes. I found these Kate Spade flats and instantly fell in love with the nude color and black capped toe. I was so excited to find a similar more affordable pair from Old Navy. Although the toe is not patent, it has a faux leather snakeskin print, which I adore. What a great deal! Where would you wear your cap toe flats?
Back in 2009, my mom told me to pick anywhere in the world to go as my High School graduation present... and of course I chose ITALY! This was an amazing trip, and something I will never forget. I had been to Europe before this, but nothing beats seeing all the incredible sights Italy has to offer. And the delicious authentic Italian food doesn't get any better! I was looking through my pictures the other day, and thought I would share my once in a life time trip with everyone. I hope I can go back one day!
I think we can all thank Lady Gaga for introducing this crazy trend of heel-less platform shoes. These interesting and slightly dangerous heels have been seen everywhere from our favorite celebrities to high end designer retail stores. Although these look like a fun trend to try, I'm staying away as I would likely injure myself. What do you think about this trend?
I love nail polish! Who doesn't? It's like make up for your nails, easy to change with your mood, outfit, or for a special occasion. When I was younger, I would have so much fun experimenting, I don't think I ever wore just one color on my fingers. Can you believe I recently came across an old family photo of my five-year-old self speckled with rainbow nails? Instead of going crazy and reverting back to kindergarden, I decided to add just a pop of color on one nail. I used Essie Turquoise & Caicos on my ring finger, and Merino Cool on the rest of my nails. I like these colors because they compliment each other in a cool gray palette, perfect for winter!
One of my must haves for winter is a stand out, stylish hat. Not only are hats functional for staying warm, but they can be a great accessory that goes with anything. There are so many different types of hats; floppy, beret, wide brim, fedora, faux fur, pom poms, feathers, buttons, etc. Don't just go for a simple black beanie, change it up with a interesting style in a pretty color. Here are a few of my favorite winter style hats.
I love all the variations of the Sh*t Girls Say videos. I came across this video about Sh*t Fashion Girls Say, and I think it is absolutely hilarious. I just had to share it with everyone! Hope everyone has a good weekend :)
Having extremely long and thick hair can be difficult to manage sometimes. Many days I find it easiest to put my hair in a messy bun on to of my head. Messy buns are a simple and quick way to get your hair out of your face. After searching a few websites, I collected images of girls with messy buns that still look chic. You can even add cute accessories such as a headband or a sparkly clip for a more put together look.
Real Purity Facial Cleanseris an excellent product. It is a gentle face wash that helps remove makeup and does not irritate or leave a film on my skin.
The Hope In A Jar Eye And Lip Creamdid not irritate my eyes. I do not think I need eye creme yet, but it do think it has left my skin feeling firmer. I didn't notice a difference when I used this product on my lips, but I apply other chap stick everyday as well.
I applied the Hope In A Jar Daily Moisturizer everyday after washing my face. I personally did not like the scent of the moisturizer, but it did leave my skin glowing.
I loved theTime On Your Hands Creme,it's a great thick formula perfect for cracked and chapped hands from the winter. I put this on top of my hands, and it kept them soft and moisturized even with the hard winter weather.
The Save The Nails Cuticle Creme have without a doubt made my nails look much healthier. Although like most cuticle cremes the product takes awhile to absorb into nail and cuticles.
Lastly, the Hope In A Jar Moisture Maskis another great product. I used this a few times a week. I would leave it on for a few minutes and then rinse off and it immediately leaves my skin silky smooth.
Overall these are great products especially for winter dryness and deep moisturizing. Besides not liking some of these products scents, I would absolutely recommend them!

I love watching the red carpet before award shows! There are so many incredible and beautiful gowns. Blush and nudes were a very popular color. I think we will be seeing more of these colors as spring approaches. Here are a few of my favorite dresses. Who do you think was best dresses at the Golden Globes?
If you are aware of Piperlime, (I love piperlime) then the picture above will be familiar. I am currently loving the bright pump trend. Although winter is still very much here, we can still have fun with color. Shoes are a simple way to add a fun pop of color to any outfit. Suede and patent closed toe pumps are perfect for winter weather. I have noticed many celebrities wearing neutral colored outfits with fun colored shoes. This is a perfect way to make a statement with your shoes!
