A la Mode


 
Can it be Friday already?  Oh and can it get warmer outside please?  Wishful thinking......  Sorry I haven't posted much this week, I've been super busy and the cold weather here in NJ is no help.  During New York Fashion Week I attended happy hour with Mode Media
 
Mode put together a few fun events during fashion week and I attended the happy hour, which was held at "The Garret" in NYC.  I was able to take the hubby with me which I loved, since he doesn't come to most events with me.  I wore my new vest from Lulu's, which I've worn like 2 times since then.  I've always loved vests, they are just so versatile!   I can easily see myself wearing this vest for Spring over a dress or shorts and a tee.  Spring please hurry!

No mirror?  No problem!  Lol!  You look good girl!  Loved this sign in the bathroom.      
 
 
Thank you Mode for a lovely evening!
 
Have a great day sweets!

LULU'S Style Studio #NYFW

 

Hi there sweets!  It's almost Friday! 
 
Why do short weeks always feel so long.....one more day!  Last Friday I attended the Lulu's Style Studio to kick off New York Fashion Week. 
This was my second time attending this event and as always it's super fun, and I love seeing all my blogger besties.  We were lucky enough to take home a piece from Lulu's.  I scored a black vest, super chic!  I'll be wearing it on the blog soon.
 
Thank you Lulu's and Stephanie for inviting me again.  I had a great time!  See you next year!

It's Valentine's Day weekend!!!  I can't wait to eat mounds and mounds of chocolate!
 
Today I'm sharing a cute and casual Valentine's Day look.  It's going to be a cold one here in NJ so I thought this floral cardi was perfect!  I added faux leather skinnies to dress it up a bit.  If you really want to dress it up you can always add a heel or even a skirt! 
 
 
Wishing you all a lovely Valentine's Day!

Faux Fur & Leopard



 
 
 
 
 
Stylish Olive Green Faux Fur Collar Coat - {c/o} Oasap | Handbag: {c/o} - Galian Suede Trapezoid Shoulder Bag | Jeans: Forever 21 | Belt: New York & Company | Sunnies: N/A | Bracelet: Kohl's
 
 
 
Happy Monday!  Wearing another amazing buy from my favorite online shop Oasap
 
I've been looking for a faux fur stole for a while now, and yes I know this is a coat and not a stole but the faux fur collar is removable!!!  That means I can wear this as a coat or over anything else, like a stole.  If your not sure what a stole is, it's basically a scarf made of faux fur.  Here's an example....
 
 
Looking forward to styling the faux fur collar all on its own.  Stay tuned!
 
Have a great day!

Happy snow day East Coast!  

Glad we didn't get 2 feet of snow as they predicted.  Snow is so magical when its actually falling, but the after math is no fun.  


On a cold snowy day like today; I love to wear cozy sweaters like, the turtleneck sweater.  I've had this one in my closet for a few years, it super warm and the color is great.  Its a favorite in my winter wardrobe.  I just love how the high-collar hugs my neck, it's the perfect cold weather fashion staple.  Slimmer styles are great for layering, which is key in winter fashion.  I took mine to the edgy side by adding another favorite piece in my closet, the motorcycle vest. 


Stay warm!

Savannah Hair Therapy



Happy Friday sweets!  
 
Horrible weather ahead of us here in NJ for tomorrow.  Can't wait for spring!  I can't even say we've had a bad winter, but I'm still over it. 
 
The cold weather is horrible on my hair.  I have curly, dry, coarse, and unruly hair at times.  It doesn't help that I color it every 3-6 months either.  With that said, I MUST use a deep conditioner or hair mask on my locks at least once a week.  Intense conditioning can do wonders for damaged hair.  I don't use the same one over and over again.  I like to use different ones depending on what I feel my hair needs at that time.  If I recently dyed my hair, I usually go for a color treated one, other times I look for moisturizing ones, and sometimes just the scent of one can be the winner. 
 
 Savannah Hair Therapy Treatment Masque with shea butter from Good Looking Discounts  has to be one of the best masks that I've tried.  A good deep conditioner can be pricey, but Good Looking Discounts provides quality products for hair care, skin care and body care at discounted prices. 
 
I have nothing but great things to say about this Savannah hair therapy masque.  Before you even put it in your hair, the smell takes you somewhere.  Not somewhere tropical, more like Paris.  I can't really explain it.  It's not fruits or berries, it's rich and fancy.  The smell is just out of this world.  This masque is so concentrated that you can actually tilt the bottle and nothing is going to drip.  A little goes a super long way.   You can use it as a routine conditioner if you'd like, but for me it works best when I use it once a week with a thermal conditioning cap.  I also sit under the dryer for about 20 minutes.  
 
Hair Tip: Always detangle your hair before you get in the shower.  It tangles less, which makes it easier to apply your conditioner.    


Savannah Shea Butter Treatment Masque & Spornette -Prego Large Ceramic Round Brush: {c/o} Good Looking Discounts | Thermal Conditioning Cap: Local beauty supply store.
 
 
In just one use of this masque, I felt the difference in my hair.  Talk about smooth, shiny, and oh that scent!  If your hair needs moisture, I highly recommend this masque.  Another thing I've noticed since using this product, is I've had less breakage.    Just let the stuff work its deep conditioning magic, and voila - healthy, beautiful hair.
 
 
Have a great weekend!

Grey Skies




 
 
 
 
 
Sweater: Gap | Vest, Jeans, & Necklace: Target | Booties: Forever 21 | Hat: Old | Clutch: Mandee | Watch: Modify Watches
 
 
 
Happy hump day!  Grey is one of my favorite colors for winter.  Variations of monochromatic looks have been everywhere on fashion blogs and Instagram.  I added touches of brown just for layering purposes.  Don't think of grey as being dull, you can always spruce it up with pops of color.  I always need some color even in the winter, as you can see I added a turquoise bangle bracelet.  If you really want to go all grey, keep it simple.  Simplicity is key! 
 
Have a great day loves!
