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.

**I received samples courtesy of Derive Colognes to review. Even though these samples were given for my boyfriend David and I to review, all opinions are our own.**
As some of you may know I suffer from eczema. I first noticed I had eczema as a child and was able to keep it pretty much under control. Within the past 2-3 years it has begun to rear it's ugly head again. With all of the smog, the sweating, the heat, the stress, the fragrances and a number of other factors - it has ignited my eczema to where it is hard to use a lot of my favorite things. One of which is perfume. I love smelling good plus it helps to lift my mood. I usually prefer to spray it on my wrist and behind my ears but had to stop doing that. I then resulted to misting it on my clothes but that still would irritate my…

Hey hey sweetie pies! Today's post is a look that I have had in heavy rotation. I mean we all have that "no fail" outfit that we love to wear any and everywhere. It is super comfy and you still look put together. I opted for this cotton, slightly oversized button down and dark wash fitted jeans. I love wearing it with sandals for daytime, heels for nighttime and sneakers for weekend. For the daytime, I pretty much style it like I have here. I have just wore the shirt as is with my jeans cuffed. I paired it with this conv…
