Coming Soon

OMG!! It feels like it's been years since I made a new blog post...oh wait...it actually has lol. I'm officially in a new chapter in my life and have experienced SO many changes and met so many amazing people since graduating from college (University of Houston in the Fall of 2013...GO COOGS!!). Working a full-time job, going through a major, "final" breakup (insert dramatic sigh...lol), meeting new people from all across the world, traveling, and officially entering my mid-late 20's has definitely kept me busy over the past couple of years. 

I went on a hiatus from youtube and my blog at the end of 2013...and I will be officially doing a blog/youtube channel re-vamp in a few more months. I've become SO excited over these last few months as I've been preparing all of my upcoming look books/styling videos, taking pics of my newest purchases (if you've been following me since I started YT back in 2010 you will know I'm a low-key shopaholic) and making little tweaks here and there to make sure my "comeback" is top notch. Thank you all for being so patient with me and I can't wait to show you all what I have in store.

Get That Look-Olivia Palermo

Ever since I saw her on "The Hills" spin-off show, "The City", I just knew Olivia Palermo would become one of my favorite style icons (regardless of how she came off on the show lol). One of the many things I love about her style is that she does not limit herself to one category and always keeps us guessing on what she will be wearing next. One day you see her in an androgynous pant suit with a sleek ponytail and the next day it's a tulip skirt with soft, wavy hair. Here are four outfits that she's worn in the past year or so that really wowed and inspired me to find similar pieces.

What's In My Purse: Spring Edition

 THE PURSE: MICHAEL KORS "HAMILTON" LARGE N/S TOTE (still available here)

From Left to Right: EOS mint lip balm, coconut lip balm, MAC's "Creme Cup" lipstick, Bath & Body Works Mentha Lip Tint in "Magenta Mint", MAC's Studio Fix powder foundation (NC 43)


You know that person that literally carries their life around in their bag/purse...well I have no shame in admitting that person is indeed me. I always have this fear of not being prepared for something so I always try and make sure I have enough things with me "just in case"; in my opinion it's always better to be OVER-prepared than under-prepared.

Pictured: Wallet- Tory Burch (old), Big Sunglasses- Marc Jacobs, Wayfarers- Ray-Ban, Iphone 5 (gold case from ebay), and of course my car/house keys

Speaking of essentials, I think it is so important to have a good, durable wallet. I can not begin to tell you the number of cheap wallets I purchased in the past only to throw them away weeks later because they would just not hold up. I splurged on this Tory Burch wallet almost 2 years ago and it has been SO durable I just can't believe it- I've literally accidentally dropped it several times. It's only just now starting to show signs of wear near the zipper and I will definitely continue to purchase her accessory products.

As for sunglasses, my two favorites are my round-shaped Marc Jacobs ones along with the classic Ray-ban Wayfarers. I used to keep all of my sunglasses in my car console but they would end up breaking so now I make sure to just keep them in my purse so there's no hassle. My iphone 5 has definitely exceeded my expectations (which I received as a bday gift last year) and I actually used to be team android. I can honestly say after having an iPhone for over a year now that I will NEVER buy anything other than an apple phone lol. This gorgeous phone case was only $4 from ebay (I know) and I get so many compliments on it when I'm out and about.

Pictured: Lauren Conrad's "Style" book, financial calculator, thin mints, orbit gum, and my Juicy Couture notepad.

The last couple of items I make sure to keep in my purse are snacks, a notepad, and a good book. LC's "Style" book (review coming soon) is so informative and I love how down to earth and realistic she is while also giving away some of her own fashion tips and tricks. I always keep a book or magazine on hand in case I have to wait for an appointment or get bored while I'm somewhere.

I think I am so used to doing finance calculations from college that I just carry around this calculator just because...but hey, you never know when you'll need to do on-the-spot calculations, right? I've had this Juicy Couture journal/notepad for about three years and it has held up so well. I typically use it as a planner and write all of my "to-do's" for the day (and then tear out the page once I'm done with both sides)! I already have several apps on my phone to keep these lists but there is just something so satisfying about crossing off an achievement/task by hand. Omg...and these thin mints are going to be the DEATH of me! I can NOT stop eating them haha!

WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT "GO-TO" BAG/PURSE AND WHAT ESSENTIALS DO YOU LIKE TO KEEP IN IT?
