Winter's Best - Monogram Cape



Cape (under $100) | Blouse | Jeans |  Boots (Black Friday purchase!) | Clutch ℅ Necklace ℅ Bangle ℅ Watch | Earrings 

Happy Tuesday! 

It was a wet and chilly weekend in Houston, but I love that it's starting to feel like Winter! The weather was a great excuse to spend the weekend at home, enjoy our Christmas tree/decorations, and sip on eggnog. Mmm. It also made for the perfect excuse to pull out my coats, sweaters, and this amazing poncho I had been wanting to wear. 





I was thrilled when I came across this poncho last month. Not does it look exactly the same as Burberry's, but it is a fraction of the price - only $85 and the monogramming is included! I love the nova-check pattern, and the warm, seasonal colors. It is great for travel - just throw it over a comfy shirt, leggings and sneakers, or dress it up over a LBD for a night at the symphony. It would also make for the perfect, personalized gift for your mom, sister, best friend, or even yourself, who are we kidding?! ;) 







Speaking of unique gifts, these gorgeous, earrings are handmade and from Belle Bijoux Boutique. Their array of jewelry will make anyone on your shopping list happy this season. All of the pieces are soooo reasonably priced - most items are $40-$100. 

And can we talk about this bangle and heart necklace? They are from CRASH. Remember, I told you about them a few weeks ago in this post. Both the necklace and bracelet are made out of a new Porsche Panamera. All of CRASH's products are made in a body shop in Los Angeles, are unisex, and they donate a portion of every sale to charitable causes. Check out their gift guide here, and give the gift that keeps on giving (plus is a great conversation piece).

See you later this week!

Holiday Style Tips




Dress (under $52)  | Shoes | SunglassesNecklace | Bracelet | Earrings 

Happy December!

The holiday season is in full swing, and you know what that means - holiday parties!

Whether it's for work or pleasure, dressing your best (and appropriately) this time of year is a must! Always dress for the occasion, and make sure you double check the dress code. No one wants to be under, or over-dressed. 




When it comes to this time of year, there is nothing as too much sparkle. From sequins, to metallics, it's your time to shine. 

Embrace the colors of the seasons, and don't be intimidated to go all out matchy-matchy. 

Wear fun materials and different textures like lace, satin, brocade, and velvet! 





Don't shy away from a bold red lip (Ahem, mistletoe)! That goes for red nails, too!

Make sure your hair compliments your outfit. If your outfit and accessories are bold, keep hair simple and sleek. If your wearing a LBD, or your outfit is more muted, play up your hair with volume, curls, or a braid. 

We all know, at most holiday parties you'll be standing the entire night, so make sure you wear comfortable shoes!

Gift Guide - Beauty Lovers

Photo courtesy of Google Images

Hello, beauty buffs! 

Whether you're an avid shopper at Sephora, or you like to test the waters with new makeup trends, you are sure to find something in my beauty gift guide.

I am definitely no expert when it comes to makeup, I usually just stick to a few simple products that have been my routine the last few years. But, I do like picking up the latest shade of lipstick and nail polish each season. I am however, very strict on my skincare regimen, to maintain a healthy glow and clear complexion. I'm that person that travels with a million and one different lotions and potions. 

Several of the items above are my go-to's including the Clarisonic brush. This product is a life changer. I was hesitant to purchase it a few years back because of the cost, and my only regret is not getting it sooner. Its sonic technology gently (yet deeply) cleanses pores, removing six times more makeup than manual cleansing. It reduces dry skin patches, oily areas and blemishes and immediately leaves skin feeling and looking smoother. It’s even waterproof so you can use it in the shower. 

Since taking a bath is part of my nightly wind down, the Aquis Hair Turbon is a must to keep your locks clean and dry. The 7 Wonders Sheet Masks are also perfect for keeping your skin on point. 

From bathrobes, to slipperscandle setslotions, and lipstick, these gifts will definitely leave you feeling pampered and pretty.
