What’s a better excuse to wear sequins than the start of the holiday season!? I feel like a Golden Girl – I am so happy to sparkle like this. I think it’s hard to not look moderately glamorous with a full midi skirt and a little sparkle. And how chic is this little red Chanel dupe!? 25 bucks y’all! I am also really enjoying this half-up topknot! Try it out for Christmas parties. Cheers!

Crosley Radio Cruiser Turntable Turquoise – I have an old record player, but it is finally broken and it was not portable. I like the idea of being able to take my player in tow to the beach! I wanna have a beach blanket bingo! This record player will do perfectly for a faux vintage lifestyle.
“The Cambridge Satchel” – These satchels are iconic. They are to bags what the moleskin is to notebooks. I just want to fill this baby with leather bound journals and calling cards. This mint color is on trend and will be lovely for centuries.
“Take a Dipper Necklace” – I love the little dipper! It’s the constellation that is always easy for me to find. I am a huge fan of dainty pendants. I’d like to rep the Lil’ D on my neck.
In Bonjour Dreams Pillowcase Set– French writing is always fun and chic. I do parle the french, so I like to keep frenchie things around me. These pillows have a great typography charm and they would go with any bed spread set.
“Living Myth Perfect Jewelry Holder” – This ‘jackelope’ creature is very curious to me. I swear they are mythical, but Si Robertson from Duck Dynasty suggests otherwise. I have been loving using little dishes as homes for my jewelry. This one is both pretty and fun – it twill look nice on my dressing table.
Charlotte OLympia Tumbled Suede Sleeping Kitty Loafers – These cat flats are PRI-CAY, but a girl can dream. I love the luxurious velvet and kitty print. It’s the perfect combo of kitch and chic. I really am not a fan of les cats in general, but I like them on clothing and fanny packs – call me cray cray, I don’t give a sheist.
Hello interwebs friends!
Curling hair with a flat iron is quick, easy (with practice), and down right magical. Stay tuned and click on the video above to learn the technique for your self.
I use an infra shine iron – had it for years, and she is still kickin’. Please remember this technique requires lots of practice! I would try it a few times on a night in, and once you master it, you will wonder how you ever got along without it! Happy Flat Iron Curling!!

Hey LADY! So, I went to Sephora recently, and decided I would do something totes girly and make a haul video and map it all out on polyvore. Hashtag, YOPO! (you only purchase once). Most of the products I purchased were staples… so nothing too exciting, but the 500 point perk was a full sized “girl meets pearl!” Like ZOMG, party like a VIB (very important beauty insider).
Don’t judge me for the cheesiness above – I just ran 4 miles and am feeling a bit loopy.
Matte shadows are kind of a rarity in the eye shadow world. Urban Decay has put together a lovely set of 6 rich velvety shadows, with one fine shimmer for highlight. This Naked Basics palette is petite, easy to grab and go, and my go-to palette. And at only $27? LOVE IT. Matte smokey eyes are sophisticated and pretty – I hope you enjoy this easy tutorial!
