As 2017 comes to a close, I can’t even begin to think about how blessed I was this year and what 2018 will hold. With that in mind, I am extremely excited to ring the new year in! Especially in style. Everyone always looks for the perfect sequin dress, which I do indeed love, but I also think there are other ways to dress up in style, without all the sparkle.
Treasure and Bond X Something Navy Satin Tunic
Leith Faux Leather Skirt
Raye Aria Booty
Asos Prosecco Pointed High Heels
Lioness Chancellor Lace Top
AG Farrah Skinny Ankle Denim
Bardot Alex Wrap Dress
House of Harlow 1960 X Revolve Kristian Dress
Faux Fur Jacket
Rhinestone Star Tassel Drop Earrings
Nars Lipstick in Jungle Red
My favorite color lately has been red. The pop adds a beautiful contrast to neutral tones. Adding it to a simple black leather skirt in the form of a satin blouse is not only sophisticated, but also spicy. I’ll be sporting a pair of black denim with a long sleeve blouse, similar to the one above. Pair it with a set of tassel earrings and a cute booty, and you’ll feel comfortable, but formal. For the more traditional mini dress, I am in love with the velvet wrap dress from Revolve. It’s sexy, yet adds that perfect warm feel. To make the outfit pop even more, add a faux fur vest or jacket to cozy up and feel glamorous.
New Years Eve is all about feeling glam and celebrating a new year! Enjoy your night, and I’ll see you in 2018!
My favorite kind of nights are the ones that I can sit down, pamper myself, do my makeup, and get ready for a date night out.

On casual days where I still want to feel and look put together, I combine my two favorite things: ripped denim and a lace shirt. The combination is classic and comfy, yet looks amazing for any occasion.
I’m sporting my favorite Blank NYC dark, ripped denim with a white lace ToSave.com shirt. (Check one of my previous posts on my review of the items I received from them!) I paired the look with a simple khaki jacket and white converse.

Lace shirts are a huge trend for spring and summer. It combines the sexiness of lingerie and the comfiness of a casual cami. To dress the look up, pair a strappy heel and clutch or large tote bag. The look is versatile, simple, and sure to turn heads!
When it comes to cleansing and exfoliating my face, I am always looking for the newest face wash or brush to wash away dirt and impurities. Removing makeup, dirt, and dry patches is crucial to clean and healthy skin! Using Grace and Stella Co.’s 7-in-1 Facial Massager and Cleanser, I can do all of that with one easy device!
Grace and Stella Co.’s 7-in-1 Facial Massager and Cleanser comes with 7 different heads to fit your cleaning needs. It exfoliates and massages your skin to reveal smooth and supple skin and is water resistant. The device massages and stimulates blood flow to your face, as well as exfoliates the feet and body with the change of the brush head. Simply click in your choice of head, wet your face, apply a dime sized amount of your favorite cleanser onto the brush head, and click the button to choose your speed.
The device is small enough for travel and fits comfortably in the palm of your hand. Not to mention, the brush is only $18.95! I have noticed a huge difference in the look and feel of my skin. My dry patches are completely exfoliated and gone, and my skin looks much brighter and has better circulation. My favorite brush is the massager head, which helps puffiness under the eyes and face.
This makes an excellent gift for yourself and even your mom for mother’s day! Share the gift of clean and fresh skin, and click the link here to receive a discount on your facial massager and cleanser order!

I recently went to Montreal for two days and had an amazing time! Packing seemed to be easy; bring some shorts, leggings, dress, converse etc. But when it comes to my makeup, narrowing down the items I bring can be tricky. However, figuring out your daily essentials makes picking items extremely easy. Here is exactly what I packed!
The key to packing makeup and other beauty essentials is finding the right bag to pack the items in. Target carries the Sonia Kashuk collection that has a variety of styles, sizes, patterns, and compartments. I typically only bring one primer and foundation, along with a basic tinted moisturizer. I also carry my favorite concealer to highlight and spot conceal, as well as pack two setting powders. The Benefit Hoola Bronzer is my new must have product. It warms up the skin and perfectly contours the cheek bones. I brought two blushes in different tones to spice up any look. I kept the eyes very minimal with one palette that also contains cheeks and a highlight. The hardest part is limiting the lip colors. Unless I plan on doing a specific look, I will bring mainly nude toned liquid lips and glosses, two max. Below are the links to the products I used.
Primer: Makeup Forever Step One Smoothing Primer
Foundation: Too Faced Born This Way
Concealer: Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer
Powder: Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder; Makeup Forever HD Powder
Bronzer: Benefit Hoola Bronzer
Blush: Tarte 12-Hour Blush; Nars Blush in Dolce Vita
Highlight: MAC Soft and Gentle; Becca Champagne Pop
Eyeshadow: Tarte Swamp Queen Palette
Mascara: MAC False Lashes Mascara; L’Oreal Telescopic
Lips: Tarteist Glossy Lip Paint

Athleisure will be your new life saver and go to trend! The easy laid back feel, brings classic athletic apparel with chic in closet pieces and makes it easy and ready to wear. This has been a go to look for me on days where I want to be athletic and comfortable, without compromising my style. Below are a few looks that have inspired me to go athleisure!
The key to this look is a good pair of sneakers. I recommend either Nike or Adidas because their shoes are fitted to style, comfort, and fitness. A leather jacket, workout leggings, and easy tee will also get you the simple look!
Get inspired through everyday street style! It’s the way I find new looks to try!
