Metallic Madness

Is it just me or are trends coming out of the woodwork this season?! I feel like everyday there is a new trend. First it was stars, then velvet, and now metallics are everywhere! I broke down this trend into three categories. While I am hopping on the metallic trend, these are the items I would add to my wardrobe for touches of metallic. I want to avoid looking like a disco ball, and instead aim for a fun pop of shiny material for a bit of glam.

I love the idea of a shimmery top paired with distressed denim and simple pointy slides. 

A shiny bootie would be the focal point of my outfit. An all black look with shiny silver booties is outfit goals.

A metallic bag would be the perfect accessory for a night out.

Velvet Dreams

Velvet is having a major moment. Everything from booties to dresses to home decor is coming up velvet. I have two velvet items in my closet. A tan spaghetti strap shift dress I picked up a year or two ago. Can you say 90s style? I also have a black velvet shirt with a lace detail along the bottom. To add to my collection, I have been lusting after these Sam Edelman booties in maroon. A sleep quilted style crossbody bag is also on my list. This one from Target is cute! Madewell has been so tempting lately. I want every item I see! This mustard button-down cami would be so adorable with denim, a long beige sweater, and knee high boots. Basically, anything velvet is closet goals for this fall.

Weekend Plans: October 7 & 8

Happy Friday! I am pretty excited about this weekend. It's finally starting to feel like fall and fall activities are calling my name.

Saturday, October 7th

I found out about the 'Go Fly A Kite Festival' at Chestnut Ridge Park on Saturday from 12-3 pm. I do not have a kite, but I would be happy to sit in the grass and watch kites dancing in the sky. Fingers crossed it doesn't rain.

After a quick stop to the kite festival, I am SO excited to visit The Great Pumpkin Farm! I cannot wait to pick out some adorable pumpkins, get lost in the corn maze and , of course, take lots of photos.

Sunday, October 8th

It's Sunday, so you guessed it... I'll be watching the Buffalo Bills! Can you believe they are number one in their division!? Let's Go Buffalo!

Hope you have a great weekend!

September Favorites

September was the month of new beauty items! My favorite purchase has to be the Too Faced Sweetie Pie Bronzer. It smells like peaches and adds the perfect touch of summer glow look. I have been adding a bit to my cheeks everyday. It quickly became a staple in my makeup bag. Another item I have been using daily is the Dream Big Eyeshadow Palette by Tarte. The colors are so beautiful and perfect for fall. The third and final beauty product I loved for September was the Smashbox Contour Palette. This was a Sephora Wow Sale item and I am so glad I picked it up. I had never contoured before. It was always a little intimidating for me, but this palette makes it so easy and quick.

For non-beauty items, I have two products I have been reaching for. One is the best dark spot corrector I have ever used and the other is a body lotion with a twist. On Your Mark Blemish Mark Fader from Formula 10.0.6 is $7.99 and hands down the best dark spot corrector EVER! I have tried everything from $100 correctors to DIYs and this stuff works. I have seen spots fade before my eyes with just one to two applications per day. This is a must try if you have acne scars or dark marks. I promise you'll love it. Keeping with the skin theme, I started using a product that keeps my skin super moisturized and goes on in a flash. The Jergens Wet Skin  Moisturizer is a game changer. As soon as I step out of the shower, I slather this on and go.  Applying lotion after a shower was always a laborious task. I would dry off, then apply lotion, then wait for it to sink it, and then I could get dressed. Now it's just a part of my shower routine and makes my skin silky smooth.

Music of the Month: September 2017

I have been slacking a bit when it comes to keeping up with new music. I have been on a Audible kick, listening to books on my commute to work. It's been a nice change and I already finished two books in about a week and a half! Here are the songs I have been seeking out during September.

Galway Girl- Ed Sheeran

... Ready for It?- Taylor Swift

Nights with You- MO
