Today I'm sharing with you all 5 stocking stuffer gift ideas. If you're a last minute shopper and are still looking for little gifts to give to your friends and family this is sure to help you out!

1. Sephora Collection rose sleeping mask. Sephora carries these wonderful little masks made with really good ingredients like avocado, green tea and rose. They have them for your eyes, hands and face. The best part is that most of them are around 4-6 dollars!

2. Lindor Truffles. These are one of my favorite chocolates ever! They are so creamy and delicious. Anyone with a sweet tooth is sure to love them!

3. B. balelnciaga rollerball perfume. I think you can never go wrong with a travel size version of their favorite perfume. Or maybe get them a new scent to try. I just got this one and it's REALLY good! I bought it online because of all the great reviews and I was not dissapointed. I'm not good at describing scents but I would say it's fresh with a woody smell... haha I told you guys I was bad! :)

4. Becca glow on the go set. This is the perfect gift set to test out some of becca cosmetics highlighters for only $20. I tested them out on my wrist and they are SO pretty! The color pictures is 'moonstone'.

5. Candles! When you don't know what to buy someone just get them a candle. I think most people would enjoy getting this. I know I would! I always love to give things that I would enjoy receiving as well. Mahogany teakwood is my favorite one from b&bw. This makassar ebony & peach candle from volupsa sounds really good too!

Other little goodies you can gift this holiday season are fuzzy socks, makeup brush sets, delicious smelling shower gel, adorable mugs, sleeping masks, nail polish &  body lotion gift sets.






I know I've been away from the blog for a little while but now I'm back and I'd also love to know what kind of posts you'd like to see from me! Let me know in the comments :) Have a lovely night guys <3

Holiday Colors

how to style faux fur: wear with a plaid shirt

Madewell vest // Similar top here // Zara leather pants, similar here & here
 Forever 21 boots (sold out), similar here & heeled version here

 I love the colors in this top. I think they are especially fitting for this time of year! I wore a black faux fur vest over it to add some extra coziness. To make it more fun I wore leather pants instead of black jeans and finished with some suede otk boots. What do you guys think about this look?

P.s. Can you guys believe we are almost halfway through December?! I'm so ready for 2017! How about you guys?

Aldo shoes (on sale), similar here // Ray Ban sunglasses

I can't get enough of this jacket. I seriously wear it all the time! I even get sad when it's a rainy day (like last week it rained all week) and I can't wear it. Here I wore it over one of my favorite sweaters from h&m. I love the knit material and it's longer in the back so it's great with leggings. I wore black jeans and my taupe booties. I wear these booties almost every day too. They have a good small heel and the color goes with so much in my closet. 

Now I'm off to go make some breakfast and read some of the many books I've started but never finished... I'm so bad at finishing books guys haha. Anyways I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!

Cream Sweater

A lightweight sweater in a neutral color is essential for me this winter. It makes a great base for layering. Currently, I'm loving it paired with faux fur! I either wear my faux fur scarf or vest and it instantly elevates my look. These pictures were from a few weeks ago so it still felt really nice outside and there was no need for a lot of layers. But those days are definitely gone and now I'm figuring out how to stay warm but still look stylish. How do you guys like my outfit?

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

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?!

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?

Fur Vest & Cuffed Jeans

Aldo Taupe Suede Booties

Madewell faux fur vest  and cuffed Jeans

 H&M sweater, similar here // Madewell vest // Zara jeans 
 H&M bag (sold out in black), also love this one! // Aldo shoes

This fur vest is so warm and cozy. It shielded me from the cold & windy weather much better than I thought it would. I wore a light silk sweater underneath and that worked perfectly for the chilly 50-degree weather. I carried my wool scarf (I just ordered it in black!) around in my bag with me all day just in case but it wasn't needed. Soon I'll have to start wearing my winter coat. Speaking of which, I need to find myself a new one. I'll add that to my black Friday shopping list. Let me know if you want a post all about what's on my list.

Have a great Monday guys! x
