Capes and Ponchos Oh My!

16 Dec

If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that I can’t get enough of my $17 oversized plaid blanket scarf. I am not alone when it comes to the obsession- these scarves are everywhere! I wear mine with everything and it’s perfect with or without a jacket as well.  Lately I’ve been pretty into capes and ponchos as well and have found three that are budget friendly and super cute to share with ya’ll.

Happy shopping!

Vegetarian Quinoa Chili!

15 Dec

Hey everyone, I have another recipe for you as promised. This one is a Quinoa Chili recipe I found through Pinterest and it’s delicious and VERY filling. Although it’s vegetarian, the quinoa and the beans pack it with LOTS of protein and meat lovers will not be disappointed with the taste! This recipe can also be made vegan if you use vegan sour cream and cheese or scratch them altogether.   I made it exactly as the recipe below calls for EXCEPT I doubled the amount of chili powder because I reeeeeaaally love my chili to be very chilly-y! I also added garlic salt as I do with all of my savory recipes. This tummy warming chili is absolutely perfect for the Winter and freezes well also!

Look For Less!

3 Dec

Phillip Lim’s Pashli bag has been a HUGE success among fashion bloggers and bag loving ladies for some time now and the mini version is just as popular. The original Pashli bag retails for upwards of $895  while the mini starts at $695  depending on what material you choose. When Lim collaborated with Target last year and designed a similar version of the coveted bag at a fraction of the price, fashionistas lined up to get their hands on the affordable version and it quickly sold out. Since then, there have been quite a few similar versions but I must say, this Forever 21 version made me look TWICE and it retails for less than $25!!!!! Check it out!

My Favorite Cyber Monday Shopping Links!

1 Dec

Happy Cyber Monday!! In the last few years I’ve gotten away from standing in crazy Black friday lines and have leaned toward online shopping for Thanksgiving weekend. I have a few websites that I LOVE for Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals and I’m going to link them below.

ShopBop has some really great deals today and every day.

Saks always has a great after Thanksgiving sale for high-end gifts.

Steve Madden always comes through with great deals on shoes.

Happy Shopping Y’all!

Lipstick Love!

21 Nov

I am all for bold lipsticks and may or may not have more shades of red than I need.  With that being said,  one can imagine how excited I was when Mac first announced their holiday collection with sparkly packaging. Once I tried on their amazing matte red lippie with tiny specs of glitter, I had to have it. Let me just add that the glitter is by no means tacky big ol’ pieces, they’re really tiny pieces of shimmer :) This is absolutely my new favorite red lipstick and it is limited edition so I advise you to get yourself a tube NOW! Once they’re gone they’re gone!

Mac- Sparks of Romance available HERE.
