Sad blogger face

Hat: Urban Outfitters | Necklace: Zara | Lipstick: Wet-n-Wild So the reason I'm looking sad in this photo is because I want you all to get how I felt yesterday after taking Tucker for a walk. Just remember the face because I wore my hair in a ponytail, no makeup, a black t-shirt, and stretch pants. I had no energy at work yesterday, so when I got home, I decided to change clothes and  take Tucker for a walk around the block from our apartments. We live near a nice area and it's a perfect … [Read more...]

In the Trench

Trench: Target | Teeshirt Turtle: J. Crew | Skirt: F21 | Boots: Target | Clutch: Express I wore this outfit on a much cooler day, because right now I would kill for temperatures below 70. This is the trench coat that I couldn't deny buying in Target a couple of years ago while living in Boston. The Trench coat is such a staple in a wardrobe and can be paired casually or dressy. I mostly like to dress it with heels or boots. Funny how I wore this a the beginning of the year and with a boots and … [Read more...]

Post Breakfast Bowls

Post Breakfast Bowls Apple Cinnamon & Sausage and Cheese love these! | Teapot  For my new found "busy-ness" at blogging and working a full-time job, I've been on the hunt for finding quick items to eat while in the office. For breakfast, I prefer an omelet with all the bells and whistles with a side of grits and green tea. But of course for time sake and the fact that I have a hard time waking up in the morning, this can't happen everyday. So I satisfy my appetite with oatmeal. It's quick, … [Read more...]

one // two // three // four // five Need to buy a fashionista a gift and can't imagine what she doesn't have? Try a tartan scarf that will warm her up this season or a candle that is cute and smells divine. The default gift to give any girl is jewelry but these yellow crusted Kate Spade studs are fun and can be an interesting piece to any outfit. After experiencing the Charlotte Tilbury counter at Nordstrom, I let the makeup artist apply a two 2-in-1 blush that will save space in my makeup bag. … [Read more...]
