NYFW: Alice + Olivia

As I continue to look through the different designs from fashion week, I previewed the Alice + Olivia Fall 2014 Collection and literally gasped at almost every piece and if I was a millionaire I would buy them all! Some of the collections I have been seeing would begin to have my heart at the beginning of the collection then…...

Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

I am what you call a "skinny girl" and for the most part it has been a great living, but as I shop for certain skirts or pants I notice that some stores that I religiously shop at stopped carrying x-small sizes and only carry smalls. So I know what you are going to say, "Oh Em Gee! This x-small…...

iPod Additions: Justin Bieber, Yuna, Lorde

 So I know I'm really late but I just added these 3 albums to my iPod/iPhone. I'm a little embarrassed to admit that I like Justin Bieber's new album "Journals", not because he's not talented he is an amazing singer, but because...you know he's a pre-teen/teen heartthrob and it just feels a little weird to be listening to his music as I slowly…...

Friday is Bride Day

Its Friday night, this is the special night of the week where I stay indoors cuddled up in my leopard print blanket while watching Bride days on TLC. I am obsessed with weddings and watching marathons of “Say Yes to the Dress” does not help my disorder.  Speaking of Say Yes to the Dress, if you have been living under a rock, Kleinfeld Bridals will…...

It’s official, with sleepless nights, countless debates, and Starbucks infused stress the fashion gods have finally released the official colour for 2014, “Radiant Orchid”.
