Queen of Hearts Valentine's Day

 


This Valentine’s Day, whether you are in love, in between love or looking for love, there is always one person you can love…YOURself {aren’t you the best?}. Of course, your family & friends are also at the top of the list. Sometimes a splash of RED on this Day of Love is the perfect color combo  OR you may be feeling more of a pink lit mood. Intermix your reds & pinks as a two-toned favorite. Mix and match with cheeky accessories like this rock bracelet, dangle arrow earrings, nails perfectly polished and the absolute day to night clutch. Get comfortable & dressed up at the same time with a bright white Tee and structured ankle pants that style well with a flat or these trending heels.

1) Old Navy Women’s “I’m with Cupid” Sleep Tee $10: This is a soft loose fitting sleep shirt that is ideal for the season. Its knee length is enough to keep you warm and feel feminine at the same time.
2) Sole Society Pump $40: This is a perfect shoe for all occasions. The ankle strap allows for all day comfort going from work to a night on the town. Nude is a complimentary color year round & the dainty bow accent presents a feminine vibe.

3) Love Rocks Bracelet $14:  Rocks & Ruffles are the latest trend in bracelets and luckily affordable. These bracelets are created with a variety of colored stones and ideal for stacking. Shop online or  your local boutique …they are guaranteed to be the talk of your Valentine style ensemble.

4) Coach Pouch $96: The quintessential wrist-let to hold all of your needs. A tiny splurge on this classic piece that will last all season and on to the next.

5) Celebrity Assistant Book $4.99: Traveling this wintery season and want a great e-read? Well here you go! Learn the ins and outs of Lindsey’s experience as a Celebrity Assistant and how you can become one with tips and tools from a former Celebrity Assistant.  The way I say I love you to myself? A shameless plug of my hard work xoxo

6) Old Navy Women’s Ankle Pants $34: These polka dot red ankle pants are adorable and festive! You can wear these with heels or flats for a more casual comfortable look. Old Navy has them in almost every color imaginable.

7) J. Crew Tunic $35:  This tunic is flattering to layer with a vest, jacket, or even going from work to date night. Tunics elongate the torso and adding a belt accentuates your waist. Introduce tunics with bright colored pants or leggings with boots and ankle booties.

8)Pearl Knotted Necklace $35: The staple necklace that can be sophisticated and simple at the same time. The layers of pearls and chain draw your eye throughout the necklace. Express often has a great sale, so maybe you can buy a loved one a necklace too.

9) Cupid Stud Earrings from Etsy $12: With these adorable Handmade Cupid stud earrings you can be Holiday ready without wearing Pink and Red every day. Their petite size and streamlined design offer modern style while supporting talented artists.

10) OPI “Big Red Apple” Nail Polish $8: Nothing says love more than the color Red.  Style your next mani with this long lasting shade from OPI.

Winter Warmth: 8 Cozy Essentials

January 5th, 2015 · Fashion, My Favorite Things, Style

Winter Warmth
Brrr…Winter is coming so bring on COZY & COMFY.
In case your power source fails, Santa brought me this super bright LED Old Timey Lantern to light the way. Let it serve double time on those camping trips making smores and memories. If bulky gloves prevent you from finding that “perfect” fit, try this half glove that allows you to move with ease & offer style at the same time. Make sure to match your outerwear of course! Another Santa gift received this year is this ultra warm quilted winter weatherproof vest. Accessorize with a fringed scarf that has multiple layers and mix up your seasonal hat with a beret style. Thanks to ebay, I scored some Sorrel boots in preparation for this white winter. If boots socks are too bulky, try this lacy leg warmer instead that peeks perfectly out of your winter boot. For the ultimate cozy & comfy, I slip into my fitted {yet roomy} stretchy HUE chord leggings.

Back to my fire & Chai tea.  Happy Winter Ya’ll.

1} Old Brooklyn Lantern $12: Santa brought an “As Seen on TV” item & it’s bright enough to light an entire room when electricity fails during upcoming harsh winter storms. Practical & keeps your house lit and cozy.

2} Charlie Paige fingerless gloves $15: Pictured above are the Kate Watts Merino as my cutie pie Charlie Paige polka dot gloves only had an image available {here}. Allows my hands to keep warm while on my phone & dealing with my keys. Not to mention ridiculously adorable.

3} Mountain Hardwear Ratio Vest $125: A splurge that will last season after season. This ultra warm puffer jacket will keep the chill off, warm your neck & stands out on the ski slope just as it does on your neighborhood run.

4} Mocha Fringe Infinity Scarf $38 :Snuggle up with layers of warmth before you brave the cold. This mocha color is ideal for a monochromatic style or equally tones down a brighter looking outfit.

5} Broner OOh La La Beret $15 {purchased mine from Mast General Store} :On days when winter weather is harsh on our healthy locks, rescue it from winter winds with a chic mix up from the traditional beanie.

6} Sorel’s Cumberland Winter White Leather Boot $80 {found mine on ebay}:Slush your way through whatever wonderful snowy mess your heart desires. Build those snowmen with ease & walk dry & comfy in mile high winter snow in these boots from Sorel.

7}Bijorca Sweater Knit & Lace Leg Warmers $15 {found mine on sale for $10} A boot sock is great, but sometimes I just want to add a little “peak” of something feminine. This lacy leg warmer does this trick & makes my boots look like a knockout. The cream gives your outfit a brighter look when wearing a darker ensemble.

8} HUE Wale Cord leggings $42 {found mine on Tradesy} :Lovely in both the Sand or Cobblestone, slides easily into knee length or ankle boots. Great fit & stretch, tunics here I come!

December 1st, 2014 · Beauty, Fashion, Holidays, My Favorite Things, Shopping, Style

 

 

Savvy santa Gift guide2

 

~Warm your Hot Cocoa & get ready to head to the Savvy Santa Sleigh! The 2014 Savvy Gift Guide is here, my personal favorites this year on what I use in my daily living~

Stay toasty in these warmly lined camel slippers; carry all your everyday essentials in this over-sized tassle loving tote! Candle lighting is a must at my bungalow, enjoy this Jonathan Adler “pepper scent”, which is gender neutral {great also to light at my spa} Need a little room for stretch? Old Navy has it down with a lightweight cord that makes you look slender & chic, Wal-mart {yep, Wal-mart} has incredible deals on cozy &  layering scarves. Thank goodness for this gel liner from Benefit, I now can make a believable cat-eye with the resting easy applicator; line your lips in these Ulta oversized lip crayons in rich gorgeous winter-y colors {fashionista is the perfect pink color & date night is a richer merlot}. Walk all day in Clark’s suede booties & even transfer them to night easily with tights and baubles; read -up and get great insight & perspective into the wildness of the male Christian heart. Finally, for the foodie in all of us, these miniature crockpots are so adorable and perfection for keeping appetizer dips warmed & my local Olive Oil company has the best tasting olive oil to perfect your palate~not to mention delicious to drizzle on salads and yes…even icecream!

Savvy Santa 2014

1} LAMO Mocassin Chestnut slippers : $30 Cozy up in these ultra warm slippers with faux sheepskin lining for cold winter nights and a hard enough sole to allow comfortable steps along.

2} Big BuddhaParson tote : $95 Toss everything & get on the go in this sturdy over-sized necessity in my life. Removable shoulder strap when needed, big roomy “box”style to carry your everyday items in. LOVE!

3} Old Navy Sweetheart Cords: $34  A MUST! Disclosure: I have almost every color & love them all. These cords are stretchy enough to move comfortable in and sleek enough to give you a great silhouette. The material is light enough to not feel “weighted down” & prevents from that extra bulky look.

4}Jonathan Adler Pepper candle: $38 {found Mine at Nordstrom Rack for $10}: Enjoy this soy based Spicy Peppercorn Scented candle, which comes also in a reusable vessel. A perfect blend of not too sweet & perfect for Holidays.

5}Cashmillion Knit Infinity Scarves: $7+ An abundance of scarves I do have, I must admit. I fell for the Wal-mart Infinity scarves as they are ultra-light, which I prefer on days when I need a little warmth around my neck but not too much. When I need more coverage, I add a second one for the perfect balance to keep off the winter chill.

6}Benefit They’re Real Push-Up Gel Liner : $24 Wow. A little obsessed with this liner. For those who adore the look of a cat eye but need a professional to apply, look no further. The tip of this liner rests against your lash line & allows for a even thick line, making your eyes appear larger and gorgeous. I dust a little light matte or shimmer prior to create a sleek put together day look.

7}Ulta Lip Liner Crayon :$8 Easy to apply, great pigment color and ultra long lasting. After paying over double for name brand large lip liners, stumbling upon these was the perfect fit.

8}ClarksKently Laila booties : $120 Searching hi & lo for the perfect Winter bootie, of course Clark’s did it again with their stylish & comfortable Kently Laila. These do run large, so purchase a 1/2 size to full size down.

9}Wild at Heart {by John Eldridge}$8+ Followed this book after reading Captivating. Read away & be fascinated on  insight into the Wild Side of a Christian Man. He is both Wild & Soft hearted at the same time, read on to learn about it. This book even made it to my Savvy Book Nook.

10}Kitchen Selectives 1.5 L Stainless Steel  crockpot : $19 The absolute perfect size for heating & keeping chocolates, dips & cheeses warm for your guests. Three  temperature settings allow for  heating & warming options.

11} Palmetto Olive Oil Company: $14+ Drizzle on Savory or Sweet {Tuscan Herb is a perfect blend} atop your salads, bruschetta,pesto, hummus dip side dishes & meals.

Happy Holidays
