I am completely obsessed with over-the-knee boots, I wear them almost on a daily basis, but I saw these red sock booties at Target and I was like “I saw them and I just had to have them!” (Name that commercial!) I couldn’t resist getting these for Valentine’s Day. They are so comfortable, easy to walk in and also the fiercest shoes I have seen in a while. These are a dupe for the Stuart Weitzman The Cling Bootie but would you rather pay $600 or $38? No question! These fab booties also come in white and pink. Those pink ones are calling my name! I love a good statement piece, whether it’s a chunky necklace, dangling earrings, color popping handbag or a funky pair of shoes. Red is such a fierce color. It’s also classic and timeless. These boots are hot, beautiful and make everything look better. Subtle they […]

Do you ever get sick of doing things the same way? Changing up your simple routine can give you a little pick me up. Change up your lip color, style your hair differently, change up your daily exercise routine or tie your scarf in a different way! Here are three simple ways to tie a scarf in an unexpected new way.   Do the twist! Fold the scarf in half and loop it. Bring the tail through the loop. Twist the loop. Bring the tail through the second loop. Tighten the tail and voilà!   Loop De Loop  Fold the scarf in half and loop it. Bring one tail end through the loop. Take the other end over the side of the loop closest to your face. Bring that same end then through the loop. Tighten the tail ends and there you have it!   Bow-tiful! If you are working […]

As I pack for my trip to Riviera Maya to celebrate the New Year, I’m looking back on my year. It was such a crazy but good year. I know we always say that the years go by so fast but this year truly did for me. I’ve grown so much. I’ve had heartbreak and experienced new love. I walked away from my past to look forward to my future.  I saved money all year to finally buy a house (more to come on that). I was lucky enough to be able to lean on my parents, I can’t thank them enough for what they’ve done for me and what they’ve sacrificed for me. Not just over the past year but for my whole life.  I also cherish the new friendships I’ve made this year. Unfortunately when you go through a divorce, you also lose friendships. Sometimes friends take sides, […]

Current mood: Listening to Christmas music 24/7! It’s one week until Christmas, are you ready? Have you finished shopping? Have you even started? I just have a couple presents left to come in the mail and I am done. So I decided to wrap gifts on Sunday after getting hot chocolate at Naperville’s Christkindlemarket. We came home, got in our pajamas, turned Christmas music on and wrapped away. The following is a list of my top 15 favorite Christmas songs. So if you haven’t wrapped your gifts yet, hop in your pj’s, grab some hot chocolate and create a killer playlist to get in the Christmas spirit! Wham! – Last Christmas Michael Bublé – All I Want for Christmas Pentatonix – I’ll Be Home for Christmas Paul McCartney – Wonderful Christmastime Run D.M.C. – Christmas in Hollis Band Aid 30 – Do They Know It’s Christmastime? Straight No Chaser – […]

This collection features our figure-flattering high-gloss faux leather fabric. Designed using our fan-favorite Power Waistband with built-in shaping mesh, these styles smooth your middle and center-seam free design eliminates camel toe. -Spanx I have to admit, I was on the fence about purchasing the Spanx Faux Leather leggings. Not because I didn’t think I could style them but because of the price. Let’s be real, $98 for a pair of leggings sounds ridiculous! I don’t even typically wear leggings. I’m not a “leggings are pants, people” type of person. I’m always concerned about the thickness of leggings so I just stay away. But my blogger friends have been talking about how these leggings are a legit game changer. So I bit the bullet. Boy am I glad I did! Not only do they hug you in all the right places, they’re comfortable, they’re pretty easy to style and are super […]
