Bucket List!

10 Feb

I recently received my Mansur Gavriel bucket bag after almost two years of waiting. I’ve been wanting this bucket bag for a while and really love the black/flamma combination, which is lined in red leather. I love how simple the design is with a fun pop of color. The bags are highly coveted and made in Italy in small batches which is why they sell out SO FAST! I am totally obsessed with my new bag and wanted to share it with you along with an affordable alternative.


Mansure Gavriel bucket bags come in a variety of colors and sizes. You can choose from various colors for the lining as well. These bags are highly functional and move from day to night effortlessly.

Mansur Gavriel $395-$695 (depending on size.)BL1

Urban Outfitters Budget friendly alternative (just a gorgeous)$44BL3


My Bedroom Makeover!

7 Dec

I’ve been wanting a tufted bed for a couple of years now and was unsure if I should just get a headboard or an entire bed frame. After shopping around, I decided to go with the entire bed frame SINCE IT WAS SO AFFORDABLE at Target! Once I purchased the bed frame, I went ahead and got two bedside tables as well. When the beautiful bed arrived and I felt weird just throwing my old mattress on there, soooooo I bought a new mattress and box spring at living Spaces. The new bed pretty much snowballed into practically all new bedroom furniture and accessories…. Once the complete bed was set up the night stands arrived, I needed lamps and cute decor so off I went to Lamps plus, Z Gallerie, Macy’s and Home Goods. Fast forward 2 weeks and my bedroom makeover is complete. I am so happy with it and wanted to share where I purchased everything from since most of them were BARGAINS! Minus the bedding- I went a little “fancy” with the bedding.

Anyhow, let’s get into the good stuff….places to purchase and prices.




Tufted Bed: $400!!!! YES for the entire bed! That is cheaper than most headboards alone. (took 2 hours for 2 people to put together)

Night Stands: $139 each (took 1 hour for 1 person to put together)


Lamps: $35 each Yes $70 for 2 gorgeous lamps. I chose 19″ lamps because my bedside tables are tall and I didn’t want the lamps to be taller than the headboard.


Decorative snowflake pillow: $25

Jewelry box: $6

Isaac Mizrahi picture frame: $5

Magnifying Glass: $7

Mrs. & Mrs. Ring dish: $3

Small square vase: $4


All bedding Lauren by Ralph Lauren

Sheet Fitted: $115

Sheet Flat: $115

Pillow Cases: $90


Safavieh Faux Fur pillows: 2 for $80


Perfume bottle coin bank $20


Fancy knobs: 2 for $7!! This was a great way to elevate the look of my nightstands. they came with black knobs, so I chose crystal knobs with gold base. Very pretty.





Perfect Summer Palettes!

3 May

Every year Spring/Summer rolls around, I get so excited to use my bolder and brighter lip colors, eyeshadows and blushes! There is no better time to incorporate beautiful color into your makeup routine. This Spring/Summer Lorac released 2 great colorful palettes that are sleek and perfect for travel as well as reasonably priced at $24. Both palettes feature 10 shimmer and matte shadows which include 2 oversized neutral shades allowing countless color combinations. The palettes are quite similar, so if you can only afford one, don’t worry!  One palette (After Glo)does feature some brighter colors than the other palette (Summer Glo) which you will see in the pictures below! It is just a matter of taste and whether you want to remain more on the “neutral/colorful” side or the ‘bright/colorful” side.  Either way, these palettes are PERFECT for summertime and are So pretty!

In The Buff

26 Mar

Don’t be afraid of public nudity! Wearing nudes and Beiges is a great way to wear a neutral other than white. I love wearing nude with black heels and accessories. Nudes can also be worn with bright accessories like teals and pinks. If your more of a safe dressed gal, you can opt for the monochromatic look of head to toe nude with neutral accessories, it  looks really pretty. As far as nude heels, if you follow this blog you know they are a STAPLE in my wardrobe and I love all nude heels! They really do match everything and elongate your legs so buy nude heels asap and you’ll never say ‘what shoe should I wear’ because your nude heel will bring any outfit together.
