If there was ever a perfect season for reading, winter is it. The short days and cold nights all scream “stay in with a book” and it’s such a comforting, wonderful feeling! During the holidays when my tree is up, there’s nothing I love more than hunkering down with a really big book and sipping hot chocolate while I read. Here are a few books I’ve read recently that would all make excellent companions during the long, cold winter.
One of the biggest challenges of being a lover of fashion is obviously my bank account. There are literally hundreds of things I want that I simply cannot afford or cannot justify buying, and when those times come, as they always do, I have to get creative. Even though the rise of fast fashion has led to disposable clothing, it’s also led to affordable fashion, and if you buy smart, take care of your clothes, and reuse/recycle when you’re done, you can look like a million bucks while spending about $50. 🙂
Tis the season for a tulle skirt! In my quest to share a new holiday outfit every week, I put together this look with one of my favorite new pieces: this dramatic midi tulle skirt from Shein. It’s SO festive, and such fun to wear! There’s nothing quite as fun and twirly as a tulle skirt, and I can’t wait to wear this outfit to Christmas parties.
Hi all. Thanksgiving is over and now I’m in full Christmas mode. I get very excited this time of year and spend a lot of time decorating, and then lounging around enjoying those decorations.

It’s now officially my favorite time of year. I absolutely go bonkers over the holiday season and love every aspect of it: the music, the movies, the way everything is decorated like frosting, the Christmas trees, even the shopping. I’m always in a good mood at Christmas and love spending that time with my family and friends. And one of the ways I reflect my festiveness is through my dress.

It’s been about two weeks since I’ve started wearing my new ACUVUE® Brand Contact Lenses, and let me tell you, it’s been awesome. My eyes don’t get ridiculously dry and scratchy at night anymore, and I’m not tempted to ditch them for glasses, which means a lot more personal freedom on an everyday basis: I don’t have to worry about the dryness of my eyes, and I generally feel more comfortable wearing them from the time I wake up to when I go to bed at night.
We’re heading into my favorite reading season: deep winter. Every January I try to read one huge 800+ page novel to enjoy winter by hunkering down with a difficult book. In the past I’ve read Les Miserables, The Crimson Petal and the White, and London. All excellent books! Here are some recent reads I’ve loved, just in case you want to be like me and hibernate until spring arrives.

It’s only a week until the official beginning of the holiday season, and if you’re celebrating Christmas or Hanukkah, that means presents. Now, of course, gifting and getting presents are only a teeny part of this beautiful season, but if you’re like me, you actually enjoy giving gifts and you’re eager to get the perfect gifts for a good price. For me, that means saving early and making really good, budget-friendly choices. Here are some tips to save money and scale back on spending this season.Read More »
Allow me to introduce you to my first pair of heeled over-the-knee boots! I’ve worn this classic trend in more subtle ways in the past and when I saw these babies for half off at Nasty Gal, I knew they were destined for my closet. They’re velvet and gorgeous! Lately I’ve been pushing myself to wear things I don’t normally wear, and these thigh-high heeled boots definitely fall under that category. Why wear the same ol’ things all the time?
