Chanukkah Outfit





Cardigan-American Eagle (similar Merona Boyfriend Cardigan), Tee-Gap (similar a.n.a Striped Tee), Scarf-Amazon (similar Echo Leopard Scarf), Old Navy Rockstar Jeans, Boots-Nordstorm (similar Steve Madden Intyce Boots), Kelly Wynne Mingle Mingle Mini Bag

It's now Chanukkah! I lit my electric menorah (I don't trust candles around the dogs!) and I'll be cooking yummy potato latkes. In honor of the holiday, I wanted to wear something blue. I paired a navy boyfriend cardigan with a striped grey tee and leopard scarf. Happy Chanukkah to those that celebrate!

Eating Pants




Cardigan-Target Girls (similar White House Black Market Leopard Cardigan), Tee-Gap (similar JCrew Striped Tee), Necklace-Forever 21 (similar Forever 21 Filigree Heart Pendant for $4.80), similar H&M Leggings for $9.95, Boots-Nordstorm (similar Steve Madden Intyce Boots)


We're at that point in the year where leggings are a must. Last week the hospital served it's employee holiday lunch where I stuffed myself with cheesecake pops and mini eclairs. This was followed by a 4 course work dinner (unrelated to the holidays) with filet mignon. This week we have our office holiday dinner. It's nothing but a lot of eating from here until the New Year. Hence the leggings aka eating pants!

Buffalo Plaid + Stripes




Cardigan-Sugar Love Boutique (similar Splendid Laguna Stripe Cardi Wrap), Shirt-Aeropostale Boys (similar Old Navy Buffalo Plaid Shirt), Pants-H&M Kids, Bag-Botkier, Boots-Naturalizer (similar

This buffalo plaid shirt has turned out to be one of my most versatile pieces. I've worn it with a bow print cardigan and a camel cape sweater. Today I'm pairing it with a striped open cardigan. The plaid just mixes so well with other prints/patterns! I've also worn it a ton more than you've even seen on the blog. Definitely my favorite purchase this season. If you're looking to add another plaid shirt to your wardrobe, you can't go wrong with buffalo plaid.

Old Factory Candles Review + Giveaway!


I received a set of Old Factory Candles for review. Their candles are handmade in the USA and each burn for 20 hours. They have a variety of different scents available including Winter Wonderland, Coffee Shop, and Fall Harvest, to name a few. It was a hard choice, but I decided to get the Happy Holidays Set which contains Christmas Tree, Candy Cane, and Gingerbread candles. The scents compliment each other nicely and they suggest burning two at a time for a larger room. These candles smell amazing and put me right in the holiday spirit!



Old Factory Candles is giving away a candle set of their choice to one lucky reader!

Please Note: I received a complimentary candle set for review via BrandBacker. However, the opinions expressed are solely mine.

Faux Fur Snood




Sweater-Forever 21 (similar H&M Cable Knit Sweater), Snood-Asos (similar River Island Faux Fur Snood), Pants-H&M Kids, Boots-Chinese Laundry (similar Chinese Laundry South Bay Boots), Bag-Botkier

I originally wanted to wear this outfit with a grey sweater. But when I opened up my dresser, it was nowhere to be found. I wound up tearing apart my bedroom looking for the sweater since it was driving me absolutely nuts that I couldn't find it. I still haven't found the sweater, so I had to settle for a cream cable knit sweater instead. I paired it with my faux fur snood which is a must on freezing cold days! It's the next best thing to cuddling with a dog.

Mix It Mondays: Oversized Sweater




Rosewe Oversized Sweater-c/o, Scarf-Scarves.net (similar Gap Cozy Plaid Scarf), Old Navy Rockstar Jeans, Hunter Kids Original Rainboot

On Saturday it rained the entire day. Although it was a perfect time to be lazy on the couch, I ventured out in the pouring rain to Target to pick up a gingerbread house kit. I figured I'd better buy one now before the stores get really crazy with holiday shoppers. Here's our mini gingerbread village: 


Needless to say, I will not be quitting my day job to do baking/decorating. How does it look so perfect on the box?!

The rain called for a cozy, warm sweater to lounge around it. I paired it this time with my plaid scarf and Hunter boots. I last wore this oversized sweater with a grey infinity scarf and leggings.

Paula Dorf Aztec City Eyeshadow Palette Review

I received the Paula Dorf Aztec City Eyeshadow Palette for review (retail $36.00). It contains five eyeshadows, a white shade, a light blue shade, a sparkly light purple, a nude, and a dark brown. It also comes with a double-ended brush. I was sent the Paula Dorf Lash Color in Teal, as well. It is a smudge proof mascara that also is water-resistant.



I used the middle shade (sparkly purple) and applied it to my entire lid. I then applied the nude shade (second from right) to the corner of my eyes. Last, I applied the brown shade (last on right) in the outer V.





These nude shades create a nice, natural eye look that works well for daytime. Purchase the Aztec City Eye Palette and receive a Teal Lash Color for free with code TEAL!
