Fall Nail Color Favorites!

21 Nov

I love beautiful rich dark shades for fall and winter and thought I’d share my favorites colors with you.  They are both by Essie, but most polish companies make these shades or similar shades. I do favor Essie when it comes to darker shades because their formulas are super thick and don’t streak.

Stylenomics is a deep green shade.

Carry On is a dark deep burgundy wine shade.

Fall’s Must Have Hat Under $20

4 Nov

Fedoras are a Fall must have, I wear them year round but am particularly fond of them during the cooler seasons. Fedoras work on everyone, even if you think you’re not a hat person. Fedoras can pretty much be worn with any hairstyle, I wear mine with my hair down, with a side braid and with a low bun.  If you love fedoras, you’ll love my selections below, all under $20 of course. And at these prices, even if you’re not a hat person, now’s the time to step out of your comfort zone and get your first fedora. It’ll look great on you, I promise:)

Look For Less: Lace Up Heels!

6 Oct

Hi everyone,  I’m pretty excited about this look for less post because I’m so into lace up shoes right now. Lace up flats are all the rage and these are pretty much the “heel” version of them. Many of my look for less posts feature something super expensive and a similar option for waaaaaaay less. This time my “expensive” option is actually mid priced, BUT I know $120 for heels is a lot to spend if you’re on a budget…..soooooo I found a similar pair priced at $35. If you can afford the $120 option- great! If not……I got you girl!

Note: Both of these heels come in a variety of colors. Click links below to shop.

Must Have Fall Footwear Styles.

1 Sep

Is it September already??? Fall is right around the corner and I wanted to share my favorite Fall footwear styles with you. From cute & casual to sexy, these styles will have you covered throughout Fall and into Winter.

Click links below to shop the pictured shoes.

Booties: Booties are a MUST for Fall. (although I wear them year round) They are cute and comfy while giving you a slight lift with a 1-2 inch heel. Booties go with everything and you need some now! Stick to basics or get a pair with buckles or fringe, it’s up to you.

Lace up Flats: Lace up flats are so HOT right now, the comfortable, yet sexy spin on the traditional ballet flat will have you wanting a pair in every color!

Leopard Pumps: As Jenna Lyons once said “leopard is a neutral” and I couldn’t agree more.  Leopard pumps will give any outfit just the right amount of oomph!

Burgundy Pumps: Burgundy is such a rich beautiful hue and is the perfect alternative to red through the cooler months.

Brown Riding Boots: I pretty much live in my riding boots from October-January. These comfy, chic boots can be worn over jeans and are great during the cold rainy/snowy months at keeping your feet warm and dry.

Fringe Stiletto Boots: One word…… Fierce!

Stylish Slip- Ons: I love grey for Fall, as well as texture. These textured slip- ons are the perfect statement sneaker for Fall.

Cute Clutch Alert!

26 Mar

I have this thing with clutches……. Clutches are such a great accessory- They add to your overall look and actually serve a purpose. They aren’t too bulky and are easy to carry in the hand or under the arm. I came across this super cute and affordable clutch today and had to share it with you. The metal plate and wrap detail are so cute!  I’m purchasing the nude color for Spring but it also comes in black. Click the links below to shop.

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!
