A Fashion Fiend’s Christmas List

As the years pass my Christmas list seems to get shorter and shorter, and as I get older I start to really get into the sprit of giving. This year, however, I was lucky enough to be invited to create my list for this holiday season for a couple different sites and wanted to share it with all of you!

My Christmas list choices this year are definitely items I have been eyeing for the past several months. Have a happy holiday and enjoy!

First, I chose this Zara checked studio cape because of the current plaid trend. I am a huge fan and love the shape a cape gives over an outfit. Instead of the same coat, cape style outerwear still provides warmth but makes your ensemble so chic.


I am finally spending time in the snow and saw these winter white boots while browsing Polyvore.com and knew they would be perfect. They are a snug, comfortable fit but don’t look like your typical snow boots. The classic black/white color combo looks amazing against the snowy mountain scenery, and they match almost all of my cold weather gear.


These tees are made from local Arizona designer, Greg Kerr. His clothing line, Miles To Go, lends a creative print to clothing t-shirts, bags, and belts. His inspirations are from works like The Great Gatsby, Harry Potter, Moby Dick, the Buddha, and movies. The tees are made from 100% cotton and are ridiculously soft. I asked for these two new styles.


The Urban Decay Naked3 is perfect for a girl like me that doesn’t wear a lot of makeup regularly. The rosy hues in this palette are perfect for shimmering up your eye area but still looking natural. The colors are easily blended and layered for deeper shade. It can be dressed up by adding some eyeliner and a few coats of volumizing mascara! Perfect for New Years!


The final item on my Christmas list is really the most important, because it has to do with keeping my body healthy. Switching to clean eating has truly made a huge difference in the way that I feel. I have more energy, a slimmer waist, and clear skin. All major pluses in my book! I usually shy away from any type of dieting to keep my meal options open. I like to cook, so generally I am able to make pretty healthy meals. After following recipes I found on the internet, this cookbook came highly recommended from people that follow a clean eating lifestyle. You are what you eat so keep it clean!

Teen Style Tuesday- Gift Guide

Hey friends!!!

I can’t believe it’s already the Holiday season. With finals coming up, I started getting my gift list in order and I thought I would share my top picks. And with Black Friday and Cyber Monday coming up, getting these gifts at a great price is going to be easy peasy!

For Sisters or BFF’s– Love this lip color from Catbird. It can jazz up any boring outfit and looks so good on everyone!


For Mom and Grandmom’s– For the mature ladies in my life, I choose these super soft, cashmere lined gloves. They are on sale and compatible for tech savvy Grandmom’s that take way too many iPad photos. (Love you, MomMom)


For Him-I saw these custom hats and knew they were the perfect gift. You can add your guys favorite colors and letter. Super personal and from the heart.
