Eves of Outfits

Hello Loves, 

I hope you all enjoyed the holidays. Had a wonderful Christmas with my family, but for some reason the Christmas spirit wasn't there like it usually is. Hoping it can come back next year. Well anywho here are some outfits that I wore for the past couple of days including Christmas Eve and Christmas. Realizing that since I have been in London, I have been more into taking risks with my outfits. I love trying new things, and I am even getting back into my makeup. Also got a new camera for Christmas so my pictures will of course be getting better. Thank you again to all those who continue to support my blog. Please help me as I work harder to raise my followers. Love you all. Hope you enjoy :)

12 Days of Christmas (5-8)

Hello Loves,

I hope all has been well. I am finally home, but I am so exhausted and jet lagged. I can't believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve already. I am so excited for everyone to open all of the presents I got for them. I love to see the look on people's faces. Well here are days 5-8 of Christmas. So I of course had to keep the tradition of the 5 Golden Rings, that's like the best part of the song. For day 6 I decided for 6 winter coats, it is always good to have more than one jacket. This way you can switch up depending on how you feel or what you're wearing. For day 7, 7 designer bags, every woman's dream. Day 8, 8 pairs of jeans, which I could really use right now. The jeans I incorporated are high waisted, my favs because they fit my body type, leather, they are so in right now, and patterns. The striped are my favs out of the pattern. I know it is very congested, but I hope you enjoy.

12 Days of Christmas (5-8)

Check out my polyvore for all of the info on the items I picked. It was too big to post lol.

Have a wonderful holiday :)

12 Days of Christmas (1-4)

Hello Loves,

So tomorrow I will be on my flight heading back
 to States for the holidays to spend with my family.
 I am very excited and I hope that come morning I 
can be officially packed and ready to go. So the other 
night I was watching one of my all time favorite
 Christmas movies, Eloise at Christmas. It is amazing
 and it makes me smile every time I watch it. During one scene of 
the movie, the song the 12 Days of Christmas was sung, and
 I honestly can never remember the order of it except for the
 partridge in a pear tree, two turtle doves and five golden 
rings lol. Well it gave me this idea of creating my own 12 days of Christmas Wish List. Leading up to the Day of Christmas. So here are 
the first 4 days. Hope you enjoy my wishes :)

12 Days of Christmas (1-4)

Jeffrey Campbell lace up boots, $200 / Jeffrey Campbell lace up boots, $64 / Jeffrey Campbell peep toe heels, $89 / Jeffrey Campbell , $260 / Chanel quilted flap bag / Swarovski jewelry, $98 / Swarovski crystal jewelry / Chanel perfume, $245 / Christian Dior perfume / Prada fragrance

Tuesday Chills

Hello Loves, 

Thank you for all of you who have been supporting my blog in the past couple of days. I officially have some followers and I am extremely happy and excited. I am of course returning the favor. 

Today was a rather nippy day. I woke up early and ran to Tesco to get some butter for my bagel and of course had to stop at Starbucks for my Strawberries and Cream Frap. Then went to Uni for a rather annoying Linear Algebra review session, full of students who could not keep their mouths shut. Once I made it back to my room I scheduled a car for Monday when I head back to America for the Holidays yay :). 

My outfit: I decided to try something different for myself today, and experimented with the shorts and tights style. I absolutely love these shorts my mum got for me over the summer at Urban Outfitters, my fav store. Due to my bottom, it's really hard for me to find jeans sometimes. I realized that low rise and my body just don't fit. If  I wear those then my crack will be exposed and that is not cute. High rise is wear its at. It shows off my figure and it adds an extra pop to the outfit. I now have about 3 high rise shorts and I hope I can get some jeans in there too. 

Sweater: NastyGal / Blazer: Forever 21 / Shorts: Urban Outfitters / Boots: Franco Sarto (Gift )/ Leggings: Cotton On/ Scarf: Found in Dorm 

Style Tip: If you want to add a classic look to your outfit put on a blazer and add a cute scarf. It will    definitely up an edgy look and give it a more preppy appeal.

Winter and Graffiti

Hello Loves, 

I know it's been a while, but the Uni life is real. Causing tired days and stressful nights. I'm an anxiously awaiting Winter break where I can relax a little with my family before returning to complete tests. The other day I was heading to Primark with a friend of mine and decided to have a mini photo shoot in front of this graffiti I pass everyday on my way to class. The color and design is amazing. Here, graffiti is really a work of art. 

 Winter time is coming, but that doesn't mean to only think grey and dull. Try brightening up your outfit. Here I'm wearing a button up shirt, skirt, scarf, and some pearls.

Style Tip: Color blocking can work year round. Blue and Purple definitely go for a cool color vibe.  

Style Tip: Turn a preppy/ classic outfit into a more edgy look by adding a leather jacket and some military boots. 

Jacket: Material Girl, Macy's / Shirt: Tommy Girl, Macy's / Skirt: Primark / Scarf: Forever 21/
Military Boots: Gift

London Haul #1

Hello Loves,

I feel like Uni is constantly ruling my life each week. I have modules everyday of the week and by the time I make it back to my flat I am worn out. I have been learning quite a lot though, and I am extremely grateful for this experience. I have also decided that to keep myself sane I am going to start off every week with a Venti Strawberries and Cream Frap from Starbucks. This way I will start off my week feeling great. So enough said, I decided to put together a video showing you my outfit from yesterday, and a little London Haul. My video skills aren't that spectacular, but I hope you enjoy. Also have a couple of pictures below.

Skirt:Primark/ Tights:Primark/ Scarf: Q/ Sweater: Hollister/ Shoes;Military boots

Hope you enjoyed my post. See you soon loves.

What to Wear to Class

Hello Loves,

Sorry I have been away for a while. I really need to try to keep my blog up. Things have been so hectic lately. So, I just wanted to do a quick post showing what my friend Megan and I wore to class, at our London Uni, a couple of weeks back.

Dress- Marshals / Blazer - Forever 21  / Boots- Vince Camuto / Earrings - / Bag - Uni Messenger

Most of this outfit was made out of items I've had for years now, not to sure you would be able to find any accept for the earrings, but hope it gives you some inspiration.  I personally love working with earth towns, I feel it goes so well with my skin complexion  Two more outfits to bring that Edge style to class. Shows how in the fall you can still put bright pieces into your outfit choice for the day. 

Pair together a pink sweater and floral headband with military boots really make the outfit stand out.

Adding a leather jacket and printed scarf really makes your outfit bold and stand out. 

Thanks for reading, hope you enjoyed.

My Life as a London, Uni Student

Hello Loves,

These past three weeks have been extremely hectic. I have class every single day, meaning M-F, and to stay in shape and save money I commute to campus by walking with my Flatmate. The walk is usually 30-40 minutes, and I have def been seeing changes in the bottom portion of my body lol. Some things that I have learned about the British culture since I have been here.
1. Do not be late to class.
2. Pastry shops sell like meat and cheese pastries, not tarts.
3. Cars do not stop, run or get hit.
4. Markets are cheaper then stores.
5. Most tube stations are closed on weekends.
6. No such thing as preservatives.
7. Everything is fresh and small.
8. A restroom is a place you actually rest if you are sick.
9. The pub is the place to be after work.
10. You don't need to tip at a restaurant or pub.

Here are a few pics for you to see what I have seen.

Bye Loves,

These are a few of my Favorite Things

Hello Loves,

I wanted to let you all know just a little bit more about myself and a few of the things that interest me. This is nothing huge or serious, just a little small tidbit of me.

1. Urban Outfitters - I absolutely love this store. Every time I go inside I find something, even if it is just a small item. Mostly what I get is in the sale section because I am a college student lol. Coming up I'll show you a few of the pieces I found in there in the past couple of months. (UO small haul coming soon)
2. Starbucks - I am in love with the Strawberries and Cream item. It is sweet, cool, creamy, and just amazing. I was feeling for one so badly the other day I just had to go into Barnes and Noble just to get one. I think I will drink one tomorrow.
     Teen Vogue - This magazine does me wonders. I really should just subscribe since I buy it almost every month. It really gives key fashion advice that really does help me so much. I do wish I could afford the pieces it features, but hey there will always be cheaper lookalikes in stores I can afford.
3. Juicy Couture - Even though I am not an everyday seasonal JC shopper I still love their style. Their pieces are so classic mixed with a prep girly. I recently purchased a bag from their, which I got at a major discount, and this is the purchaser bag it came in. It was so cute I just could not throw it away. I think I am going to make it some sort of wall decor.
4. Company - This UK based magazine is amazing. No offense to my lovely American Magazines, but this gives magazine is the best I have looked in so far. It shows tons of street style, and I don't even know what else I just love it. The only place I know of to purchase it is Barnes and Noble, so check it out if you can.

Hoped you enjoyed!!

Hello Loves,

As you fashionistas may know, stripes have played a huge role in this season's statements. They have been made into dresses, shirts, blazers, pointed shoes, and my fav (which I still have not purchased) pants.  Not only are these stripes bold and vast, but they fit so many different styles. You can do edgy with striped pants, a leather motor jacket, and military boots. You can also do a striped shirt, with a solid skirt, heels, and a bold lip color. Or you could do glam with a bright dress, striped blazer, and heels. It is really up to you how you want to make your statement.  The other day I went to my little sisters first cheerleading game, and I decided to be bold with some stripes. The outfit is below. My pictures aren't that good of quality, so please bare with me. Hope you continue to wear them.

Shirt: Marshals / Bag: JustFab / Earrings: / Shoes: Minnetonka / Black Jeggings

Trials and Tribulations

Hello Loves,

For the last couple of days I have been trying to be more creative with the outfits I put together. Just trying to use the clothes I have in my closet, while at the same time cleaning out the clothes I do not even wear anymore. We can discuss that trial at another date lol. So here are just some things that I threw together, while also trying to be versatile with my hair. The pictures are a little out of order

I went out with two of my sorors and decided to do something very chill. My hair was a wet and go with a side part. This outfit was very simple, but cute and comfortable. 
Shirt: Peebles
Pants: Cotton On
Shoes: Dirty Laundry
Bag: Nine West

 Sunday( Today)
 Went to Red Lobsters with my sisters for a Sunday Brunch and decided to look cute and all lol. My hair is a continuation of my wet and go from yesterday just pulled up.
Shirt: Urban Outfitters
Jeans: Wet Seal 
Shoes: Steve Madden 
Bag: Vintage Dooney and Bourke 

I went to an all day event with my sorors at a Refinery, discussing women in the Engineering work force. It was wonderful and very informative. My hair was a stretched twist out. With French rolls in the front. 
Shirt: Q
Pants: New York and Company 
Shoes: Bandelino 
Bag: Nine West 

 Just a regular day. I went to visit my grandmother and spent time with her, my uncle, and cousin. Also ran errands most of the day. My hair was in twists that were then in two big twist and decorated with a beret.
Skirt: Wet Seal 
Belt: Macy's Material Girl 
Shoes: Minnetonka

Hope these gave you a few ideas.

SHOES, Shoes, shoes !!!

Hello Loves,

 I am really trying to get my blog up and running, and really get some more viewers. I don't have the ability to take pictures of what I wear everyday as of now, so I am really trying to think of ideas to blog on. So I decided to do a little excerpt on my new shoe collection. I have to say I went crazy this summer and almost every pair of shoes I loved; I bought. Don't assume I am rich, I just worked this summer and didn't have bills to pay besides rent lol. Most of the shoes I purchased myself, some were purchased a la mama. Hope you enjoy my little shoe show. Exact prices I cannot remember, but ranges and places of purchase will be given.

A plethora of my shoes...


Doc Martens: Ross $26.99
So at first I really wasn't feeling the Docs, I thought they would make my feet look big and ugly. However, when I saw these and how much they were I had to get them. I literally almost cried because I didn't want to spend any more money. 


Right to Left: 

Bandelino: Ross - Range $20-25
Dirty Laundry: Ross $12.99
So these Bandelinos I ultimately had to get for work. My other black flats needed to go pronto. As you can see the Dirty Laundry was a really good price. I wear them all of the time, and now the inside clothe is coming up. I still love them. 


Right to Left:

Nine West: Macys - Range$30-40
G by Guess: Ross - Range $20-25 
Nine West: Ross - Range $20-25
Every girl needs a nude pair of heels!! This is a motto. 

Right to Left: 

Madden Girl : Macys $30-40
JustFab : Originally $39.95 (Buy 1 get 1 free)
Vince Camuto: Nordstrom Rack $43.99
JustFab: Originally $39.95 (Buy 1 get 1 free)
So I am 5'9'' and I recently just became comfortable with wearing 5 in heels. So I went on a spree to get some of my own. As you can see prints are very important. Floral and Animal are really in, plus they looks awesome. 


Cheap Monday:Urban Outfitters $25.99
Kimchi Blue:Urban Outfitters $19.99
Wanted: Urban Outfitters $25.99
I purchased these offline when Urban Outfitters was having their sale. I walk so hard on my feet that I have to purchase sandals every summer because they always get messed up and break. I absolutely love these, and they fit. I really haven't worn them that much due to the rain, but I hope they last. 


Right to Left: 

Steve Madden: Ross $20-25
BCBG Generation: Ross $20-25
Wedges are so comfortable. They are like balances that totally work an outfit. 

Thank you for reading about my shoe haul. Hope you get some good insight on where to buy shoes. If you are near a Ross, I am telling you get whatever they have. I don't have Ross is my area, but when I see one I stock up. Enjoy the rest of the summer loves.
