NYE Makeup

Well... Today is New Year's Eve! I can hardly believe it. I am going to share with you some makeup looks I found on Pinterest that I think would be great for a party or gathering to celebrate the New Year. I know that many bloggers are sharing outfit looks, but an outfit is not complete without makeup! So let's begin the perfect makeup look search!

I hope this will help you when it comes to deciding what type of makeup look you would like for an evening or day of fun!

Happy New Year!!

Last Minute Christmas Gifts

I cannot believe that the Christmas Season has crept up on us again. It is crazy how fast time is going. There are endless options when it comes to gift giving but I am not the most creative person when it comes to picking out items. I am more of a need based giver. I love giving or receiving gifts that I will be able to use and wear.

I have put together a list of items that you can get for loved ones this Christmas.

Adele's New album 25 is incredible. If you haven't listed to it or bought it you are missing out! If you have a friend or family member that is obsessed with Adele, this is the perfect gift. Next on the list is a Nail Polish set. Nail polish is so versatile and you can't go wrong with this classic gift. I think the colors in the Olivia Palermo x Ciate London set are beautiful and great for anyone. If you are willing to take the plunge and purchase a more expensive gift I would suggest this Vince knit sweater. Turtlenecks are a wardrobe staple, especially if you live in a colder environment. I also think turtlenecks add a sophisticated look to an everyday outfit!Another good piece to give is a Polo Ralph Lauren Oxford knit, it is classic and will look good on anyone no matter what their style is. Socks are an easy gift to give and you can never have to many socks! The Fair Isle socks,  Burgundy pompom hat, and scarves are perfect stocking stuffers. Lastly, this Monogramed Mug is super cute and personalized! 

I hope this list helps you with your Christmas shopping! Merry Christmas!

Casual Day in NYC

When I visited NYC, I wanted to wear an outfit that was sophisticated yet comfortable to be walking around in. Since it is warmer than it should be in December, I was able to wear a cable knit turtleneck with a blazer. I thought a fun way pull the outfit together was if I wore red lipstick. I love the way this outfit looks!  The scarf and the red lip made me think about the holiday season. 

It was fun to add drama to my outfit by wearing a bold lip. It was definitely out of my comfort zone wearing this bright red lipstick by Sephora  (shade #01 Always Red). Because I went out of my comfort zone, I was able to build confidence and I appreciated the way I looked wearing this beautiful shade. I encourage you to go out of your comfort zone and wear something that you wouldn't normally and be confident! Appreciate your beauty and learn what works for you.

Holiday Outfit

I cannot believe that it's December! Now that it is getting closer to Christmas, I wanted to share with you an outfit that I think will be great for a holiday gathering. Of course you can dress up this outfit more than I did by adding some accessories and heels, but I am more comfortable in flats. When I think of Christmas I automatically think about wearing red, green, or black. Instead of those traditional colors, I wore a navy geometric skirt with a cable knit turtleneck. I think this will be the perfect outfit for attending a gathering that does not require you to wear black tie but still look nice.
