    Grey + Floral Layered Top

    If you’ve been following me for a while then you know I love a good layered top. They’re always so cute and makes your outfit instantly better with minimal effort. I love layered looks and when a top or dress comes pre-layered it takes the guess work out so you don’t have to worry about things looking bulky or not laying right. This grey top has 3/4 sleeves and a floral layer underneath. What’s different about this one is that the back splits open so you get even more exposed floral layer. Top: LOFT | Pants: Uniqlo | Shoes: Steve Madden via DSW I love the beautiful light and dark pink…

    Blazon Brush

    Happy Monday and hello Thanksgiving week! I just need to get through work today and tomorrow and then I’m off! To say I’m excited is an understatement. Speaking of Thanksgiving, all the good sales should be happening this week especially since many stores have started doing pre-Black Friday sales in recent years. Have you started your holiday shopping? I started, but just a few things here and there that I saw and thought would make small gifts. With all the sales coming up I wanted to tell you that Blazon Brush is offering 10% off their brushes from Black Friday through Cyber Monday. Blazon Brush was kind enough to send me…

    Multicolor Stripes – 70s Vibes

    As soon as I saw this oversized top with multicolor stripes it immediately made me think of the 70s. The colors just scream throwback. The top is really soft and lightweight. The oversized fit of it makes it perfect for cozying up in, but it’s not so oversized that you can’t make it work for other occasions. I wore this top on Friday to work with brown pants and boots – and a chunky cardigan –  since it was cold due to the unexpected snow. But for these photos I styled the top in my go-to style – jeans and flats. Top: Vici | Jeans: Kohl’s | Shoes: Express I…

    Spruce Up Your Guest Bedrooms For Christmas

    For many, the panicked shopping race before Christmas has already started. With presents to buy, decorations to prepare and an exciting menu to set, there is a lot to do. It’s not uncommon as well to invest in a last minute Christmas outfit – or a few, depending on how many parties you’re going to attend to. In short, with a to-do list packed with shopping items, you might come behind your hosting schedule. Indeed, if you’ve invited relatives or friends to stay over, you need to get the guest bedroom ready for the occasion. While Christmas colors are a must-have in most households, it’s fair to say that they…

    Chicken Hook

    At my new townhouse I’m spending a lot of time cooking, but one thing I haven’t made – nor do I plan to – is a whole chicken. Although roast chicken is one of my favorite foods, there’s just no way I could eat a whole chicken so I would never make one for myself. But, like I said roast chicken is one of my favorites, and so when The Elevated Cook sent me their Chicken Hook I knew I had to bring it over to my parents’ house so that we could enjoy some chicken together. The Chicken hook is made of top-grade stainless steel and due to it’s suspension…

    Scout – Original Deano Tote Bag

    We got a taste of winter yesterday with a snow storm! Snow was in the forecast but it was worse than expected. I ended up getting out of work early and although it was a tricky drive home I was lucky to get home within 30 mins. I have friends who were on the road for hours and even my brother who normally takes 30 mins to get home from work was on the road for over 3 hours. Anyway, on to today’s post. Tote bags are essential for me. I’m always lugging things around to and from work and constantly bringing things from my townhouse to my parents’ house…

    Oxford Blue Sweater Dress

    Happy Thursday! Last night is the first weeknight in a while that I went to bed before midnight  and I’m pretty happy about it. I’ve been wanting to get to bed earlier for a while now but I always get caught up doing work or I plan to get to bed earlier and then I remember something that I forgot to do etc. But I got to bed earlier last night so hopefully today is a good day! It might snow this afternoon, which would be good and bad. Good because it would continue to get me in the holiday spirit, but bad because I probably won’t get out of…

    Leopard Print Cardigan

    For the longest time I disliked animal prints. If you asked me a few years ago, or even a year ago, if I’d ever wear a leopard print cardigan (let alone anything) I would give a firm no. I was just never in to animal prints. But, for some reason this year they’ve been growing on me. When I see them now, I don’t have an instant aversion. In fact, it’s gotten to the point where I have bought a leopard print cardigan as evidenced by this post! I knew I wanted to finally get a leopard print item so I was on the lookout for a sweater or cardigan…

    4 Ways To Make Your Interior Decor More Sustainable

    Our home is sacred to us. It’s where we relax, where we raise our children and the one place on the planet where we can truly and completely be ourselves. Yet, while we all deserve a home that’s cosy and homely, in an increasingly enlightened era it also behoves us to think about ways in which we can make our homes more sustainable and environmentally friendly. We’re going through natural resources at an alarming rate, even in the face of compelling evidence that we’re limiting the life of the planet by doing so. Indeed, the late great Stephen Hawking himself theorized that unless we mend our ways we could render…

    Heart Shaped Resin Earrings

    I hope your week is off to a good start! I’ve been so busy with work and things so I’ve been pretty tired. And then it takes me twice as long to get work done because I’m tired so I work slower. Like at night I’ll be sitting on my couch with the tv on, trying to get some work done and I’ll keep falling asleep. So what should take me 15 minutes ends up taking me an hour. It’s a vicious cycle. Anyway, I have a quick and pretty post for you today. When I saw these heart shaped resin drop earrings making their rounds around social media I…
