cabi blouse



Everyone knows that you need a great LBD (little black dress) in your closet. But what you might not know is that you also need a fab black jumpsuit! It is the perfect LBD alternative! And this one by cabi is a stunner! It is probably the most flattering jumpsuit I own. The waistline has a bit of stretch to it and cinches at your waist ever so slightly. And who doesn’t love outfits that make your legs look a mile long? With all of the holiday parties we’ve got coming up, you can bet this outfit will be making another appearance!

Outfit Details: Grace Jumpsuit c/o cabi, Steve Madden Heels, Wink & Winn Clutch, Micro Collar c/o Baublebar, Vintage Bracelet


Comfy Cozy

you are my sunshine





Well, the cold weather has officially arrived! And I’m officially already tired of it. LOL. Actually, I love bundling up by a cozy fire every night. And finally being able to wear some of my jackets is fun. But other than that…buh bye.

P.S. How cute is my tote? I always sing “You are my sunshine” to my son so now of course it has sentimental value to me. One of my girlfriends actually celebrated her bday at our local Paper Source and we each got to create our own personalized tote while sipping on champagne. Isn’t that such a cute idea?

I got lucky the past few months and was chosen to receive back to back Influenster Voxbox’s to review. Last month it was the Formula X box and this time it was a Lancome box that included everything you need to create the perfect “eye”: Lancome Definicils Mascara, Lancome Drama Liqui-Pencil Eye Liner (in Noir Intense and Ampoule), Lancome Visionnaire Eye Cream and Lancome Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover. For my look, I used the black eyeliner on my upper lid with just a hint of the purple liner on my lower lashes. I really ought to line my lower lashes more often. Especially since I no longer wear mascara on my bottom lashes. I think because I wear so many lotions & potions under/around my eyes, mascara always ends up leaving black under my eyes so I gave it up altogether. The purple liner is VERY vibrant (and quite pretty IMHO) so just a little bit really amps up your look. You’ve got to check out the #LookMeInMyLashes feed to see some of the fabulous looks the other beauty bloggers came up with!
