Old Closet Finds & Valentino Dupes

I was cleaning out my closets a few weeks ago when I stumbled upon an old Modcloth dress from six years ago....and it still had the tags. For those of you that don't know, I started a weight loss journey in September 2015 and have lost 70 pounds. I actually remember buying this dress in size medium, the only size still in stock at the time, and hoping that it would fit but knowing in my heart that it wouldn't. I loved it so much that I bought it anyway and hoped it (along with all the other too ... Read the Post

Saving for Luxury with Louboutin

I am all about affordable fashion but every now and then I splurge on a designer piece. I only do this after I've budgeted and set money aside to save for the purchase. I also only splurge on items that truly are investment pieces of high quality that will last a lifetime. After saving for several months, I finally bit the bullet and bought these Louboutin Praguoise Spike Booties. I wear boots almost every day in the colder months so I've already gotten so much wear out of these. I paired them ... Read the Post

Your Best Skin with Tula

When I was in my teenage and early college years, I had really good skin. Aside from the occasional small breakout, my skin was never problematic. Now that I'm almost 30, I've noticed my skin doesn't have as much of a "youthful glow" as it did 10 years ago. For several years now, I have always made sure that an illuminating product is part of my everyday beauty regimen. I really love the Laura Mercier Radiance Primer. It can be worn alone or under makeup to give your skin a beautiful glow. I ... Read the Post

Winter Jewel Tones

I love to wear and style jewel tones because the colors are perfect for any season. I found this emerald dress at Modcloth a few weeks ago and instantly fell in love. The color is even more beautiful in person and could be worn any time of year. It is very comfortable, soft, and lightweight. The length is great for both petite and taller women. The only alterations I did were to the sleeves, as they were about an inch too long for me. I had my tailor shorten them to three-quarter length and add ... Read the Post

The Best of 2016

2016 has gotten a bad rap but it has been one of my best years. Here is a highlight of my favorite parts. Enjoy! 23 April 2016 I got to marry my best friend. Jake and I met in 2014 on eHarmony. Yes, you read that correctly. With a full time job and being a full time student, I didn't have much time to go out and socialize. I have a cousin who met her husband on eHarmony and is happily married so I thought I'd give it a try. Jake was one of my first matches and it was an instant connection. ... Read the Post
