#NYFW is Here!



It’s that time again friends! F/W (fall/winter) 2014 New York Fashion week! While for the past two years I’ve wanted to go more than I can say, it just hasn’t been in the stars – YET. So, what is a girl to do? Well, lucky for us there is this fabulous thing called live stream which basically gives you a virtual “front row seat”. This is how I will be bringing you NYFW coverage this season, much like in seasons past.


Wednesday Wisdom: A “Closed Door’ Doesn’t Mean the End of Your Dream



The above says it all; straight and to the point. It really is true that perseverance pays off in the end. Hey, as the old saying goes, “nothing worthwhile is ever easy” (or something like that). Never giving up, going after what you want and what makes you happy is something I’ve always believed in, and have said before, If I’m really honest with myself though – I have yet to truly do it. Recent occurrences in my life have finally made me realize that what matters is to do something with my life that truly makes me happy. Happiness is the most important thing in my opinion.

So, let’s do this! Let’s finally actually “talk the talk” AND “walk the walk”.

Funky Valentines

Funky Valentine ---TEST






















Ah February….the month of love. All about finding your “Valentine” ….or so I’ve heard. Yes, that’s right people I have no valentine for Valentine’s Day this year. Before you start pitying me though, fear not – I’m ok with it. While I’m not quite sure what I’ll be doing with my obvious single status on the day of love, I do know what I’d wear if I have plans. Let’s call it a mix of classic feminine with a funky edge. And of course, ya know…. a little pink never hurt anyone.

With these bitterly cold winter temperatures as of late, I can’t help but start dreaming of spring and summer. This of course got me thinking of spring and summer fashion. So, I have to say, the above dress caught my eye whilst browsing ModCloth recently! One thing I’m determined to do this year is step out of my “fashion comfort zone” so to speak and wear more dresses.



Wednesday Wisdom: Everything Will Be Alright




Out of all the Wednesday Wisdom posts I’ve done thus far, let me just say, If ever I were to have a life motto this would definitely be it. I’ve been through many struggles in my life and quite possibly have more to come, however, through those experiences I’ve become stronger and better. Even though “in the moment” it might not seem like it, in the end have faith that everything will turn out alright. Maybe not the way you thought originally, but the way it should be and the best way it should be.

My First Julep Maven Box!

I make it no secret that I might be a bit obsessed with nail polish. As shallow as this may sound, I don’t fully feel put together without my nails neatly painted. Even if it’s just a period of a couple of days without polish or chipped polish, I feel a bit weird. That very fact in itself is a bit weird, I know, but what can I say? That’s just me. So, when I came across a chance to get a couple of new luxury polishes each month to try out, how could I say no?



Hello Gorgeous!

Hello Gorgeous - LEAD PIC

















Hello Gorgeous! I love this shirt. How could I not be attracted to a shirt that practically “spoke” to me? What’s better? It was on clearance.  So funky, sparkly and pink! Right up my alley ya’ll. What else do I say? Well, it was a bit windy this particular day!



New Year’s Resolutions + 2013 Favorites!

NY RESOS + 2013 FAVS thumbnail 4












Another new year. As always we are all fresh with inspiration, ambition and motivation for the future. Sometimes we stick to our new year’s resolutions and goals….sometimes we don’t. I’ll be honest, I’ve been guilty in past years of letting some of my new year’s resolutions going down by the wayside. My major resolutions this year – TO NOT LET THAT HAPPEN.
