Fall Capsule: Grey pullover + Blanket scarf


Snow. The inevitable white stuff has finally arrived. Love it or hate it, it was bound to show up sooner or later. I must say, I quite like waking up to a picturesque dusting. Two feet of snow, trying to get to work...that's a whole other story. Time to bundle up ladies! I wore this super cozy outfit (sans hat inside though) on a lazy paperwork day at work last week, and all that was missing was nap time and hot cocoa! Keep reading for more photos and additional outfit details.

Sweater - Madewell, Pants - J. Crew, Booties - Aldo (old, similar), Hat - Kate Spade, Blanket Scarf - Anthropologie,   Rings - Silver Gallery & Etsy, Lipstick - Rimmel Kate Moss 107

Ah blanket scarves, the ultimate blogger accessory for fall. I'm totally in love with this one from Anthropologie. It's two sided with rich jewel tones on one this (pictured), and more earthy tones on the other. Double the style! I'm also seriously in love with this hat that I snagged in the Kate Spade Friends & Family sale.

Hope you're keeping warm and cozy!


Beauty Bits Vol. 3 (Beauty Bloggers Made Me Do It)


Another volume of Beauty Bits for you all! This time, I was inspired by fellow beauty bloggers for all of these products. Sometimes a recommendation is just too good to pass up. I must say, all of these products were true to their recommendations and I've been using them non-stop. Keep reading for more details.

The Weekend Edit Vol. 20


Sorry about blogging being put on hold this week. Work was a little insane and I was out every night for various reasons. Definitely soaking up the me time this weekend. I did manage to catch Interstellar this week though, and I thought it was fantastic! I also did a fair amount of internet browsing (I should really be focusing on Christmas shopping, and not shopping for myself haha) and so here are some links below:

Totally in love with this mini bag from Kate Spade Saturday. Festive, yes appropriate for year round use.

I am also totally in love with these lace-up flats. And the heel option!!
And in case you want a DIY option, Geneva totally read my mind this week with these DIY lace-up flats.

I love a good Christmas sweater, and this J. Crew one looks totally fab.

Speaking of Christmas, I may just have to make this brioche wreath as a centrepiece this year!

A Cup of Jo featured this fantastic small space, and I am totally in love. Makes me want to redo parts of my small space :)

Hope you guys had a lovely week and weekend. Back to blogging this week!


The Weekend Edt Vol. 19


I'm currently writing this post sipping on a homemade eggnog latte, and it's the best feeling in the world! To all the people who are still avoiding the "C-word", I don't care, Christmas is coming!! November is about 30 days too long in my opinion. The days are shorter, it's getting colder, and we start to get snow. What better way to get out of that slump than to think about the upcoming holidays. So I'm going to enjoy my eggnog latte to the max, thank you very much!

In other news, I got back from Hawaii this week. Such an amazing trip, and you can see photos here. More exciting news this week: my sister and I got VIP tickets to see Taylor Swift next summer!! Woot woot! So pumped!

So even though I'm back at crazy work post vacation, this week hasn't been all that bad ;). Here are some of my faves from the internet this week:

The microbiologist in me is following everything Ebola very closely. This is one of the best editorials on the current state of affairs that I've read yet. Must read.

Emma Stone is one of my fave celebrities, and I absolutely love her style. The Gloss round up all the times she's broken fashion rules and it's paid off. My favourites are when she broke rules 4 and 7.

After seeing this lip look on Essie Button, I had to try it out...and I love it!

Anna has done it again and made contouring so simple.

Joelle's mixed print outfit was so on point this week. Love it!

Hope you had a great week!


#tbt Hawaii Photo Diary


So in case you don't follow me on Instagram, I was on vacation for the last week and half in beautiful Hawaii! Boy is it tough coming back to reality after a trip like that. Here is a little photo diary of my time there.

We stayed at the BEAUTIFUL Disney Aulani Resort. I would seriously recommend this resort to anyone. Great location, service, and fantastic beach and pool facilities.

I can't get over the beauty of Hawaii, and the marriage of mountains meet sea. It's breathtaking. We took one day to drive around the island.

Quick stop in Hanauma bay to go snorkeling! I took these underwater shots with my Lifeproof phone case. I kept it on the entire trip to avoid any sand and water ruining it.

Above is a teeny tiny pineapple growing at the Dole Plantation. I seriously had no clue that pineapples didn't grow on trees! I also had the best pineapple juice ever there. So sweet and no acidity.

Surfing is a must while in Hawaii, so I took a lesson at Eisenhower Beach. Perfect spot for small consistent waves.

My favourite spot on the entire island of Oahu was Yokohama beach. It's at the most western tip of the island and had some killer swells. Safe enough to swim and have fun in, just big enough to really pound you into the sand if you get caught in a break (I'm still finding sand in my ears). Mostly locals go to this beach, so it's pretty empty, and you can watch people surfing and kids body boarding.

Sadly, every vacation comes to an end. Aloha is the Hawaiin word for hello, goodbye, and love. So Aloha Hawaii!! Until next time!
