I love this time of year, simply because of the sequins. If it’s not sequins it’s the metallics, or the sparkles… I just love it! This is an old outfit I contemplated posting again this year. I decided to post it because – why not! It’s cute and sparkly, perfect for this time of year.

What’s something you look forward to wearing each holiday season.

Happy Tuesday! I think this week is going to be dedicated to parties to the holidays coming up THIS WEEK! Can you tell I am excited? Well I am 🙂 I love this skirt, I found it at TJ Maxx (a friend actually bought it for me) and I couldn’t wait to style it. This outfit would be great if you are going out to an evening party. I have learned the hard way that I need to wear a coat when I am going out in the evening. Once upon a time I was that girl running to a party trying to be cute and not wearing a coat to only wake up in the morning with my body aching from the cold. I have grown past that and decided to leave that in my 20s.

Casual Party Ideas

With Christmas and New Years so close, I figured I would give you all some inspiration on what you could wear if you are going to a casual party for the Holidays. In my normal life (lol) I typically don’t get dressed up often for parties. This outfit is something I would wear to a friends house for a festive get together. Really all you need is something fun, I like to wear sequins around this time of year because it embodies the holiday season and I just love it 🙂

Have you all planned what you are going to do to bring in the new year? Tell me about it, I would love to hear.

It’s Holiday Season!

We are smack in the middle of the holiday season, with Thanksgiving being just around the corner, next week to be exact. I realized that some people are starting to attend  holiday parties around this time of year. With that being said, it only makes sense to go out and start looking for something to wear. I have the solution for you… RENT THE RUNWAY, have you ever tried it? It’s amazing!!!

If you get all dressed up and have an amazing formal dinner for Thanksgiving. You can look fabulous all Thanksgiving weekend! Rent 3 items for the cost of 1! Available for delivery dates: November 22 – 26  (use code THANKS3FOR1). If you are like me and don’t get all dressed up for Thanksgiving, you can also rent casual outfits and accessories, if you are only looking for one item and this is your first time, you can get 20% off First Order from Rent the Runway, how exciting is that!!!

Here are a few of my favorites from the site, one of which I am going to see if I can rent this weekend, I have something very special coming up soon 🙂

Keeping it Suave 

This weekend a few friends of mine from college, decided to put together a series of events to celebrate a friend of ours who passed away. November 1 five years ago Suave passed away. That was his nickname, he was smooth 🙂 Typically we would get together for dinner or something simple for his birthday. Over the past few years we haven’t gotten together, so we decided to do it big this year.

We started on Friday, for Veteran’s Day. Suave was really enthusiastic about giving back to the community. When we were given the opportunity to hand out flags to the Veterans at the World War Two Memorial, we jumped on the opportunity. We has such a good time, and it was nice to give back.

We had to dress like a park ranger 🙂 

On Saturday, we hosted a brunch it was really nice, because some of Suave’s family stopped by and joined us. Spending this time together brought us back to the old times. After college we would have potlucks over Suave’s house, he was big on us getting together on a regular basis. Frank even made shirts for us with a drawing of Suave’s face on them. 

Towards the end of the brunch, we all wrote a message on a balloon and let them float to the sky. 

We even did the mannequin challenge!!! How did we do?

Here is a iphone pic of most of us from collage. We call ourselves “the fam” I think Suave came up with that name 🙂 

Did you all do anything fun over this holiday weeken? I would love to know how you all celebrated Veterans Day.signature2

Blogmas Day 22: Holiday Hair and Makeup

It’s begenning to look a lot like Christmas! I start to get so excited when we start to get closer to the holidays… it’s countdown time 🙂 For those of you have have a few parties to attend here are some looks that will give you some inspiration.

First we are going to start with my favorite… Hair!

 

As you all know I have natural hair so this mohawk is so edgy for a NYE party. I am not sure if I would every pull it off, but those ladies who do… get it!

 

You can’t every go wrong with a sky high bun! Buns go great with just about any outfit… especially if you are wearing statement jewelry.

 

This bun here… gorgeous! Braided buns, are so romantic, effortless, and chic!

After the hair is done, we now have to do our makeup.

 This is by far my favorite makeup look. Natural eyes and a bold lip.

 

 This look is very glamorous and sultry, perfect for a Christmas party. Imagine wearing this with a bright red dress!

 

 

 

Bold lashes… enough said.
