December Favorites 2017

"Art is a line around your thoughts."  ~ Gustav Klimt 

Hey hey sweetie pies! How crazy is that December is almost over - let alone 2017? December has been a month of going outside my comfort zone as well as growing in every way possible! I have a few things that I have had in heavy rotation this month and I figured that I would share in today's post! I will also be doing a yearly favorites that will be coming a little later. For the products that I have been loving this month, keep reading!

Fresh Balsam Candle (Currently 50% off!)
I have been into any and everything Christmas-y and this candle is just that! Smelling like fresh pine with a hint of eucalyptus - this candle is perfect for the holidays! My boyfriend David picked out this candle and I am so glad that he did. I have been obsessed! I have it in my living room so it is one of the first things that my guests notice!

2018 Happy Planner (Currently 50% off!)
I got this planner last month as I needed to start for the new year asap. #PlannerAddictProbs I love the modern simple layout of this one. It definitely has a minimalist style so keep that in mind. Since I do my weekly and monthly layouts, I wanted a planner with a simpler design. Feel free to check out this month's monthly and weekly layouts here. I am so excited to start using it for the new year!

Faux fur coat 
This coat is an oldie but definitely a goodie! So soft and glamorous, it is the perfect compliment to any of my outfits - especially this winter season. Faux fur coats are no longer just for special occasions, throw one on top of a graphic tee and jeans and you have a one of a kind look! I will be showcasing different ways to wear faux fur in my upcoming winter lookbook so stay tuned! Since my jacket is no longer available, I linked affordable similar options below.



Leopard Scarf
When I tell you that I wear this scarf so much it should be against the law? Omg this scarf is my go to! Whether paired with a chunky knit sweater and a mini skirt or thrown on for rehearsal - this scarf is worn 2-3 times a week! I got this scarf ages ago at Charming Charlie but I will link similar options below!



When my Nana gifted me this palette, I knew it was worth trying out! (My nana works in cosmetics) I have been using this palette all month and I love it! The powder is "buildable" so that you can receive the look that you want. I love the formula plus it is great since the color powder comes in three colors. This palette also includes a holding wax, eyeshadow, an applicator, a pair of tweezers and eyebrow brush. It is definitely worth the price point.

3 Pros and Cons Being a Freelancer

"Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free." ~ Jim Morrison ***Stock Image by Wonderlass***
Are you or have you ever thought about being a freelancer? The entire concept for most means freedom to do what you want. Setting your hours. Getting to sleep in. Working when you feel like it. While some of those are true, I think people get a false perception for what it's really like to be a freelancer. I freelance dance and write so I want to share some pro's and con's. These statements are my own opinions so I suggest taking it with a grain of salt.
Pros 1. You are ultimately your own boss. You can dictate what hours you work and how long you work for the most part. Being your own boss means independence and not having to answer to someone else. 
2. You can work as little or as much as you want. Since you are your own boss, you can determine how many projects you take on at a time. Usua…
