Beauty Buys to Try

Over the past few months, I have spent some time defining a beauty routine that reflects my personal lifestyle. At dinner, two of my girlfriends explained how much they love the Sephora face masks. I tested it out on my Sunday evening and let's just say it may be a new weekend ritual. In addition, I have been wanting to try these hair masks that have popped up all over beauty blogs, lately. With Winter here, there are a few other items I am hoping to try for alleviating dryness that often comes with cold weather: a new lip balm, this eye cream, and these hair products. What are some of the beauty items you are loving lately? I would love to hear any other suggestions! xx

One Year

Today marks one year, since moving to New York City! More than ever, the past year has proven to me that having the courage to make a change or big decision, can only bring better things. The moments we have now are the ones that should be cherished and used to pursue our personal dreams. Thank you to my readers, family, oldest, and newest friends. Because of the role you play in my life each and every day, I have been able to find my little path in this great, big, city. You are all dear to my heart and always will be. xx

Parka and Pearls

Pearl Necklace: Carolee c/o | Coat: J.Crew Chateau Parka | Turtleneck: Banana Republic | Denim: AG | Booties: Nine West | Hat: Kate Spade

Since purchasing this Winter parka earlier in the season, I could not be happier! Through snow, ice and early morning commutes it is the perfect item to make me feel cozy and warm. In addition, I recently received the prettiest pearl necklace from Carolee. The pearls can be worn for both work and play, which I love! In this post, I paired the necklace with one of my favorite stripe turtlenecks, but am also imagining it with a silk blouse in the Summer, or little black dress for work. If you are on the hunt for staple pieces, definitely check out more of Carolee's items here. xx

A Few Things

With Valentine's Day around the corner and February temperatures getting chillier by the day, it's the perfect time to treat yourself to a little pick-me-up. I can't be the only one that gets excited about office d├ęcor (at least I hope not) and this little acrylic cutie is dying to find a home on my desk. A new pair of pajamas or soft, cashmere beanie are also special treats. My sweet mom recently gave me this book and I am in love - the best bit of bright inspiration! One of my friends has this lotion and it smells divine. She always let's me steal a bit when with her - may be time to get some of my own? Last but not least, I am loving these dainty friendship bracelets. After all, our best girls are there for us no matter what and as Carrie Bradshaw states, "Friendship never goes out of style." xx
P.S. Kate Spade is currently having a surprise sale! Another ideal place to look for something special.

Little Leather Jacket

Leather Jacket: Blank Denim | Stripe Turtleneck: Banana Republic | Denim: J.Crew | Booties: Nine West | Scarf: Forever 21 | Sunnies: Ray Ban | Bag: Tory Burch | Earrings: J.Crew

This little jacket has served as the perfect layer for evenings out (and makes me feel super New York City chic!) In addition, I am loving how easy this outfit ties all together - it's a lot more laid back than my usual look. For the most part, I stick with very classic pieces. However, I feel although this jacket is trendy, it's a staple that can be worn in future seasons to come. I love pairing my chunky scarf and lately adding a beanie, as the temperatures have dropped quite a bit. This one, caught my eye immediately with the cute little bow in the back. Are we surprised? xx
