I took these over Thanksgiving and never got to posting them. I swear, I didn’t even realize how much Gap I was wearing in these pics until now. It doesn’t surprise me though, since I’ve been finding great things from there lately. I love the hidden gold embellishment on this cardigan!

Reader Question: Where can I find a bag big enough for my laptop, but sleek enough to wear for a night out?

Q:  I am looking for a bag, preferably black, but a splash of color never hurt anyone. I need it to be big enough that I can slip my laptop in (13″ mac book), but still sleek enough to wear for a night out. I’ve been searching, but I can’t seem to find something nice and still semi-cost effective. Can you help?- Migdalia

A: I know what you mean- it’s definitely always ideal to have a practical bag that you can carry all your essentials for work in, but can easily be brought out with you for that after work cocktail. The good news is that I scoured the web and found some great options for you! Pour La Victoire’s Marseille satchel and Topshop’s leather side zip satchel both have a great shape for your laptop to easily slide in and out of, while still being sleek enough to transfer into your nighttime look. For a more elegant look, try this patent leather one from Kate Spade. And if you’re looking for a little more edge (my personal favorite), go for this leopard number from ASOS. The mix of  leather and animal print will instantly spice up your look!

Holiday Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffers!

Stocking stuffers are such a fun part of Christmas, mostly because you really don’t know what will be inside… Here are some great stocking stuffer ideas (for the ladies, of course!).stocking-stuffers

1. eos lip balm This egg-shaped lip balm smells incredible and its unique shape makes it easy to find when digging through a large handbag 🙂

2. H&M pom pom socks Fun, comfortable and cozy!

3. J. Crew Archie Grand notebook These notebooks come in a few different colors with cute phrases on the front.

4. Pond’s cleansing towelettes Face it, we all have those nights where we are just too lazy to take off our makeup. Well, this is my secret shortcut. A few sweeps over your face and your ready for bed!

5. Hanky Panky undies I wear these every day! They come in so many pretty colors and are so comfortable that you don’t even feel them.

6. Foot Petals shoe cushions By now, you’re already familiar with my love for Foot Petals…They are great to have on-hand to slip inside your shoes for that extra cushion to get you through the day/night.

7. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure polish I gave myself the perfect salon mani with this polish! The special design of the brush makes it easy to cover your entire nail in just one swipe.

Latest Obsession: BaubleBar

baublebarIf you follow me on Twitter, you’re already familiar with my latest obsession of fashion jewelry e-commerce site, BaubleBar.  Filled with the latest trends and regularly updated with newest, hottest items, BaubleBar has seriously become my go-to when I’m craving a new statement necklace or chunky bracelet. The best part? It’s a lot of the same pieces that you see in high-end department stores, only at much lower prices!! How could this be true, you ask? The combination of being web-based and dealing directly with designers, allows them to eliminate the high markup. And with the holiday season upon us, I encourage you to take advantage of the online jewelry mecca for your holiday shopping (I already did!).  They even have gift cards available 🙂

Right now, BaubleBar is featuring their 20 Days of Buried Baubles.  Every day through December 20th, they are marking down one “Buried Bauble” (you’ll have to find it with help from their daily clue) to only $10! See today’s clue and find out more here.

Warning: With so much sparkle to look at, BaubleBar may become highly addicting!!

Nicole Miller Blogger Event

Last night, I had the opportunity to attend a blogger event at Nicole Miller Philadelphia at their Bellevue location. I had a great time mingling with fellow bloggers and browsing the current collection. I made sure to snap pictures of some of my favorites items in the store right now!

{Wedding Wednesday}

I don’t know about you, but I could look at wedding photos for hours on end (actually, I do…). There is so much inspiration out there that it’s impossible to ever get tired of looking. I have a feeling I’m going to be in serious wedding inspiration withdrawal when my wedding is over. This has actually been a pretty quiet wedding planning week for me. I’m mainly working on an invitation design and deciding on a honeymoon destination. Hope you are all enjoying your Wednesday! Oh and don’t forget to enter the Pink Papaya contest for your chance to win one of my favorite products!

Pink Papaya + Giveaway!

Pink-Papaya

pink-papayaI was lucky enough to have recently received some products from home spa and beauty brand, Pink Papaya.  I have to say, I have never had products that smelled so good! The Butter Lotion Candle doesn’t even have to be lit to fill the entire room of a sweet, floral scent. It’s divine! My favorite product has to be the Blackberry Fig Foot Scrub.  My feet have a tendency to need some TLC and this was the perfect solution that left my feet smooth and satisfied (tip: use a pumice stone for best results).  With products ranging from Skincare (think cleansers, moisturizers and facial masks) to Aromatherapy (hand wash, lotion candles and more!), Pink Papaya has everything you need to turn your home into a day spa.
