The Thing about 2015

Kensington Palace, 2015 Reflection, Lululemon Vinyasa Scarf, Palace, Tourist, London

I'm going to be very frank about 2015, there were a lot of ups and downs but there was an extreme amount of lows compared to highs. It kind of sucked.

2015 was not my favorite year. In fact, besides the obvious trips, I have a hard time liking anything about this year. I would say the lowest of the lowest happened and I'm the most excited for a New Year than I ever have been in my life.

Thriftmas Sweaters & Leathers


Written from: The Dinning Room table with Lady Grey Tea

It's that time of year where I've walked into my closet every morning this week and not had an ounce of inspiration.

Oh Thriftmas Tree


A very exciting trip to the thrift store yesterday. I'm very excited about my finds and more so the level of creativity I received from it. I was every where in that store. I probably could have stayed all night had their leather jackets been less picked over.

Alas, I gave myself a time limit and a budget and genuinely stuck to it! #NailedIt

Holly Jolly Reds

Chanel: Rouge Allure - 99 Pirate, Dior: Diorific Mat - Holiday 2015 Limited Edition - 750 Fabuleuse, Ciate London: Olivia Palermo Satin Kiss Lipstick Limited Edition - Velveteen, L’Oreal: Color Riche Collection Exclusive Reds - Blake’s Red, Too Faced: La Creme - Jelly Bean
I don't wear enough lipstick. I'm sure men would beg to differ. I heard that men don't necessarily like it when women wear lipstick because they have a fear of it getting on them. I think it's absurd but than again, I'm a single lady.

One of my greater joys during the holiday season is the amount of red lip colors that come out. My past post on 5 Fall Lip Shades is a dead give away on my obsession with lipstick and the number 5. Even though I rarely buy a tube of lipstick over $5 (ah hem), I can't help but dream about each one of these! I'm dying to try out that Olivia Palermo Velveteen. It's such a luscious red. I can see that being one of her personal go to colors. I'm definitely going to try and it out at Sephora.

Did you notice the gold trend?!

These designers are after my heart and my money. I love a good gold accessory. Tell me why I wouldn't love a gold tube of lipstick? The Too Faced packaging is on point for the holiday season. Have you seen their holiday gift set this year? Anyway, This beautiful bell gold and the name, Jelly Bean, is too lovely not to adore. It makes me happy and gives me a sweet tooth thinking about it. It's a red that will make your teeth look whiter and I like the thin tube design because it can fit in any "on the go" make up bag or purse pocket.

The Dior seems to be a statement piece and I feel as if it's meant to live on top of your dresser.

What's you're favorite red for December?

Winter Lull

Getting back in to shape, running, outside, seattle, washington, fall, leaves, cars, sidewalk, run, get in shape, work of it, fence

I can't believe how fast December is going by. It's almost stressful to think about Christmas being around the corner. This winter I was not prepared for the stress it was going to cause on my body and due to that, I've slaked off in the one area I generally pride on: Myself.

It's the Holiday Season in New York


Written from: An East Village Airbnb off of 3rd, New York City

This week has been exceptional. It's been so enlightening. Even though I'm exhausted from meeting new people, working and learning, I've been cultured by the graces of Manhattan. I've been able to act like a tourist and yet I've also been able to experience the city as a local. Especially by staying at this airbnb my last few nights.
