Christmas Lights

12.04.2016






 Last night we went for a walk downtown. They had already decorated the area with Christmas lights on the trees, wreaths, and festive window displays. It was really cold outside but it was fun taking a walk at night (it wasn't even that late maybe 6 pm but it felt more like 8 pm!) to enjoy all the beautiful lights. I got a few quick snaps of my outfit too. I wore a warm flannel, black jeans, leather jacket, sneakers, and a big scarf. What have you all been doing to get into the Christmas spirit?

What I Bought From The Black Friday Sales

12.02.2016



Last week I bought an item my closet had been missing for so long... a leather jacket! You guys know I’ve been trying to find the perfect one for months now. I wanted it to have cool details – lots of zippers, a buckle, etc., and be well made. It’s an item that will last me for years so it took me a really long time to finally decide on one. The black Friday sales helped make my decision a little easier. I picked this one from All Saints. You’ll see it better in outfit pictures soon :) 

Aside from the jacket which was my main purchase I bought a few other little things too…


A new foundation brush from Urban Decay. It’s on sale here or a similar version here.


A candle in my favorite scent from bath & body works. It’s called mahogany teakwood and it smells like a really good smelling man!



A flannel from h&m. These are a must have for winter! It comes in many more colors here


And lastly, a pair of sparkly stud earrings. Similar ones here


What did you all think about my purchases? Which one is your favorite?

Winter White

H&M sweater - sold out, similar here // Topshop jeans, similar here & here 

Instead of reaching for my usual favorite black jeans I went with a white pair with ripped knees. I also chose lighter colors for the rest of my outfit for an overall brighter look. I love how the white, cream & taupe look together. This will be my go-to color palette for those dark cold days when all I want to reach for is black! What do you all think about my look?


P.S. How adorable would this flannel look with white jeans & taupe booties?! 




Cyber Monday Sales

11.28.2016


There are so many good deals right now for Cyber Monday. I know this is my second post of the day but they're too good not to share with you guys! If you haven't started your Christmas shopping, today is the day to start! The deals right now are probably the best they'll be until after Christmas.

One of my secret shopping tips to earn money while I shop is to use ebates. I use it on my desktop and there's also an app for my phone when I'm shopping on the go! If you love shopping you need to sign up now. The way it works is you activate the cash back right before you checkout and you earn a certain percentage of your purchase back. For example, one of my favorite stores, nordstrom, has 6% cash back right now. So I would earn 6% back on any purchase I make today. It's awesome, I promise! :) You can sign up here (you'll get $10 for signing up too!).

Good morning lovelies! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. I’m starting off my Monday morning with a delicious cup of hot chocolate, blogging from my bed, and burning my new candle. My plans for today are to work on a couple of upcoming posts and take blog photos. I’m also expecting a super exciting package! It’s something I ordered from the black Friday sales. I didn’t do a whole lot of shopping but as soon as I receive everything I’ll show you guys what I got!

This is what I wore Friday morning when I went out to the stores to see if they had any good deals left. An oversized tunic with faux leather leggings. This style of leggings looks much cooler than regular ones, definitely a good staple item. I’m in need of another pair since I wear them so much. I had no luck finding them in the store and they were sold out in my size online so I think I’ll order the similar ones I linked above.

What are your Monday plans?
