Happy Monday my beautiful friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I had such a great time with my family and disconnecting from all devices, it felt so good to live in the moment and enjoy Aviah's first holiday!
Over the weekend, I did some holiday shopping, taking full advantage of some of the awesome sales that are still going on right now. In times past, sales would mostly be on Black Friday and Cyber Monday (today) and that's it. Now, many stores are extending their sales throughout the week, which is awesome! So, I thought I'd share some of my personal favorites in the categories 'Treat Yo' Self', 'For Her', For Him and 'For Mama-to-be & Baby' this week. This is the first time I'll be sharing a full on gift guide, so I hope you love it!
Happy Wednesday my dear friends!
After having Aviah, my most requested blog post has been on how I lost my pregnancy weight so fast. One week after giving birth, I returned to blogging (see my first post here) and in that post, I had already lost 16 of the 26 pounds I gained throughout my pregnancy. I'll be sectioning off this post for you to easily skim and read what you're most interested in, if you don't have the time to read the entire post, which I'll try to keep as short and to the point as I can, without leaving out anything you might want to know.

Happy Monday my dear friends!
There are quite a few colors that are trending this fall/winter season, one of which is red! It was actually trending this past spring/summer, along with pink, which we discussed in this blog post. I feel that when a trend gains momentum with time, it's because it's practical for the everyday person like you and I. When it gains popularity, we then see more options, which allows for us to experiment with the trend, big or small, save or splurge.
Happy Wednesday my dear friends!
I think a sequin blazer is quiet easy to pull off during the day or any other time of year than most of us think. The key is to add it to an otherwise simple outfit, as I showed on Monday. By keeping everything else in the outfit relatively simple, you'll allow for the blazer to be the focal point of the look and when you combine it with pieces that aren't festive in color, such as red or metallics, it makes it more practical for any time of year.
Happy Wednesday my lovely friends!
I've had both pieces in this outfit for as long as I can remember, but I constantly challenge myself to create new and refreshing outfits with older pieces in my wardrobe each season. I've never styled these two together before and thought they'd make for the perfect combination. I love the way the olive green looks paired with the black and how the mix of texture in the fringe works with the studded details in the military inspired shirt.
Happy Wednesday my gorgeous friends!
I hope you're all having a great week so far! Today's outfit screams 90s to me, I wasn't necessarily going for this particular vibe when creating the outfit, it wasn't until after I put everything together that I realized it. I think it's the combination of leather, bold gold necklace, and these bold mustard yellow pants. I've been on a mustard yellow kick lately. Perhaps it's to make up for the entire season I missed wearing it last year when I was pregnant, if you read last Friday's post, you know what I'm talking about, haha!
Happy Thursday and happy first day of fall, my dear friends!
Fall is one of my favorite seasons, so I'm very excited that it's officially begun and I will no longer get the side eye for talking about it, haha. Today, I'm sharing a variety of ways you can create fall-ready outfits, from the archives, centered around one particular color that exudes the season, burgundy; let's get started!
Happy Tuesday my dear friends!
Continuing on with my Fall Essentials, today we're talking about felt hats, the glamorous way to keep warm and cute come fall. There was a time I was hesitant in wearing them because I felt they looked a bit over the top leading others to think, "who the heck does she think she is?" as I walked down the street. I've never had such a reaction, so it was all in my head and I'm glad I decided to forgo that insecurity and embrace them because they're ridiculously cute and fabulous! Here's why I love them...
Happy Tuesday my gorgeous friends!
This week's fall essential we'll be talking about is the blanket scarf! I was a little late to jump on the blanket scarf bandwagon when Zara first rolled them out a few years ago, but I've certainly caught up, building a collection comprised of neutrals and fall/winter color combinations and prints. Let me share just why I love them so much...
