Velvet is in this holiday season. If you didn’t know this, well now you do! I’ve always been a fan of velvet. There’s something very fancy about the fabric that instantly makes me feel a little bougie, which is why I got this Relaxed Velvet Tee in Tobacco Leaf (cool color name)  from Old Navy to spice up the season.


I’m in love with this relaxed tee. You can pair it with almost anything and it completely transforms your outfit! In this first look, I wore the tee with a pair of high waisted denim jeans, a teddy jacket, and black booties. A simple yet very cute look for a date night, or an evening holiday party. I also added a few accessories including a Glitter Wristlet (also from Old Navy), a belt and a necklace to give it a bit more personality.

For the second look, I paired the tee with a striped skirt and ankle boots.  I kept the accessories to a minimum on this outfit. Only adding hoop earrings, just because the skirt and booties added so much more detail to the outfit and anything extra would be too much in my opinion. This look can easily work for any daytime festivities. I didn’t wear stockings on the day I shot this, because it wasn’t that cold, but if you need to definitely go for it. Being cold ain’t cute.

Are you into velvet this season or is it not your thing? Let me know in the comments!

The Holiday season is upon us, which means wrapping ourselves up in our favorite layers and jackets. Lucky for us, Old Navy came through with the colors and coziness that will last all winter long.

Let me tell you about their signature Puffa Jackets. They’re brighter, better and come as a vest as well. They also come in different versions including bright colors, glittering metallics, and velvet versions. These Puffa’s keep you very warm, and they’re also the perfect pop of color to make any outfit stand out this holiday season.

 

Some people like to wear their sherpa on their body. I like to wear mine on my feet. Not only are these Sherpa-Trim High-Tops cute they’re also super comfortable! The cushioned insoles made with memory foam makes it easy to wear these shoes all day without any discomfort or sore feet which is a big plus for me. I also love how the sherpa trim keeps my ankles super cozy!

Now, I’m a huge denim fan and when I heard about these Built-in Warm denim, I knew I had to get a pair. You can find them in the Rockstar Fit, and they’re the perfect jeans for cold days. Whether you’re getting a cup of coffee at your local cafe or hitting the city for a night out, the Built-in Warm Denim can be both dressed up for special nights out or down for everyday activities. Comfortable to move in with just the right amount of stretch, these Built-in Warm Denim are here to give you coziness to the max.

Let Old Navy help you squeeze more fun out of life this holiday season!

One of my favorite seasons, Fall is officially here and I’m super excited about it.

Taking walks throughout the city to see the leaves change colors, hot apple cider drinking, and Halloween are some of the things that excite me about the new season.

             I also love that it means breaking out my comfy sweaters and favorite boots like this one  from  A.S 98. These stylish over the knee boots are called the Choni.

They’re very comfortable and have a slouchy look that I’m currently digging. I paired them with a cheatah print blouse I got from my mom a while ago, a skort ( I don’t think I’ve ever actually used this word in my life) and my favorite hat from Goorin Bros.

These boots can make any outfit look stylist without even trying.

I am a huge wine lover and I usually get pretty overwhelmed walking into a wine shop to buy wines. With so many different kinds from all over the world, it’s hard for me to sometimes branch out and try new wines, so I tend to stick to the ones I’ve had in the past which can sometimes get a little unadventourous. This is why I’m so excited that I discovered Winc.

Winc is a subscription wine delivery service that makes trying new wines not only easier, and cheaper but also fun. All I needed to do was take a quick preference assessment quiz on their site and based on my answers, Winc was able to curate 4 wines for me to try and delivered them straight to my door.

My first box included two reds, one white and one rose. The great thing about the Winc subsciption is that you can swap out and change wines if you see something you like that’s not included in your box or if you see something you don’t like free of charge. There’s also no shipping charge, no sign up fee, no commitment and you can cancel or skip anytime with no hassle.

Since I was going away to Cape Cod the following weekend after receiving my box, I decided to take my box with me on the trip. The box has a cool handle on top that makes it very easy to transport and I didn’t have to worry about the wines in the trunk of the car at all because their packaging was super secure. It’s safe to say that none of the wines made it back to New York with us.

I can’t wait to receive my second Winc box and I would love you guys to try it for yourself and see why I’m raving about it so much. CLICK HERE to receive your first box for only $40 delivered right to your door. That’s 4 wines for just $40! Pretty sweet deal!

One thing a dread after a long day with a face full of makeup is having to take the makeup off.  Most of the time I’m pretty lazy and don’t want to deal with my face, which is a no for your skin, so I always make sure to remove it. I usually use a makeup remover wipe which irritates and tugs away at my skin and sometimes includes alcohol. Being a huge fan of Korean skincare methods,  I was really excited to try the  Double Cleanse and Boost kit from Julep.

The Korean method of double cleansing removes all dirt and impurities from your skin to allow the rest of your skin care routine to deliver the maximum outcome. The Double Cleanse and Boost is available at Julep and Ulta Beauty and is a 3 step routine which includes a Hydrating Cleansing Oil, a Detoxifying Cleansing Stick with a Charcoal Konjac Sponge, and a Reparative Rosehip Seed Oil.

The Hydrating Cleansing Oil literally melts any makeup you have on right off your face. Don’t believe me? Check out this video real quick!

The Detoxifying Cleansing Stick which comes with a Charcoal Konjac Sponge is a gently exfoliating & deep cleansing duo that work together to remove pore-clogging dirt. Lastly, the Reparative Rosehip Seed Oil leaves your skin radiant and hydrated while controlling the oil production on your face and preventing fine lines and hyperpigmentation.

All three products work very well together but can be used separately as well. I’ve definitely noticed my skin getting smoother and softer with a very nice glow to it which makes it easy to integrate into my daily skincare routine because I see results. If I had to choose a favorite of all three, I would have to choose the Hydrating Cleansing Oil just because it’s made my life a whole lot easier when it comes to removing my makeup and keeping my skin healthy in the process.
