Happy New Year's Eve everyone! And, what better way to celebrate than with a sparkly dress, heels, and some bubbly. I always love a little sparkle, so New Year's is one of my favorite holidays to dress for. I hope you all will be celebrating with those you love. Here’s to the New Year!

Blood Orange Champagne Cocktail

Monday, December 30, 2013

This time of year is always crazy. As soon as Christmas is over, New Years is only days away. And with that, I want to share a little champagne cocktail to celebrate the New Year. It is a simple cocktail with only three ingredients and incorporates the juice of the in-season blood orange. Mix this juice with some elderflower liqueur and top with champagne for a cocktail perfect for ringing in the New Year!

Merry Christmas!

Happy Christmas Eve everyone! I arrived home just last night and could not be more excited to be home for the holidays. My family hosts both Christmas Eve and Day at our house, so I will be helping out with some last minute things today to get ready for our Christmas Eve festivities with my extended family. I will be taking off the rest of the week to enjoy my time with friends and family while celebrating the holidays (and I hope you do too). I wish you all a Merry Christmas with your friends and family!

Skirt: Loft, Top: Express, Clutch: MNO.logie, Necklace: Jcrew, Watch: Michele, Shoes: Michael Kors
Happy Monday everyone! With Christmas so close, I want to share with you what I plan to wear for Christmas Eve. In my family, Christmas Eve is a more dressed up affair, so I tend to wear a skirt or a dress. This tulle skirt has the feminine style I prefer and pairing it with a lace crop top balances the outfit out. Add a little bling with my necklace, and you have my perfect Christmas outfit.

Friday Find: Make-a-Flake

Friday, December 20, 2013

make a flake

Growing up, snowflake making was something I always did around the holiday season. It was a fun activity and the result would leave you beautiful paper snowflakes. Fast forward years later, and Make-a-Flake will let you make virtual snowflakes. And, once finished you can download the snowflake you created and cut it out in the paper form. How cool is that?

Budget or Covet

budget covet shoes 2 copy

The Valentino Rockstud pump is a gorgeous shoe! It has a feminine silhouette that is balanced out with its stud detail and is versatile enough to wear with more than a few outfits. However at a steep price tag, it can be hard to justify the cost even if you do wear them all the time. At a fraction of the cost though, Schutz has shoe that looks very similar to the Valentino Rockstud. It has the same style appeal, but is much friendlier on your wallet.

NYC Holiday Decorations

New York is a magical place during the holidays. The entire city adopts the holiday spirit with lots of lights and decorations to celebrate the time of the year. From the famous Rockefeller Christmas tree to spectacular windows at department stores, the city goes all out. This year while taking in the decorations, I took lots of pictures and thought I would share them as not everyone is lucky enough to have the opportunity to see the stunning designs. I hope you enjoy!
