November POPSUGAR Must Have Box

L to R | Wine Glass Writer | Tiny Prints Thoughtful Hearts Stationery | The Secret Recipes by Dominique Ansel | K. Hall Simpatico Ambergris Shea Butter Cream | Sorial Saffiano Wallet on a Chain | G.H. Cretors Chicago Mix Popped Corn

This POPSUGAR Must Have Box had me at "Hello." I was so excited about everything in it. 

The Tiny Prints Thoughtful Hearts Stationery and the Wine Glass Writes I have not used yet. The stationery cards I will more than likely save for a special occasion. The Wine Glass Writers will more than likely be used for other arts and crafts projects. I don't have a lot of parties right now so writing on wine glasses isn't really a priority. But making cute notes, that's another story. 

I'm sure excited about using the Secret Recipes by Dominique Ansel. Who may I add is the creator of the Cronut, the most delicious snack EVER! I love how the book is broken down in recipes for beginner, intermediate and advanced cooks. The book is filled with great stories and amazing pictures. I'm super excited to try the Chocolate Pecan Cookies, Popcorn Chouquettes and the Purple Tart. All in the beginner section, don't want to try and get all fancy just yet, but this Marshmallow Apple is calling my name.

I wore the Sorial Saffiano Wallet the other day and it was perfect for running errands. This navy color goes with everything and theres a surprise leopard lining on the inside. There is just enough room for my wallet, keys and lipgloss. Luckily I had pockets so I put my phone in my pocket. I love this small bag because it's just big enough, there's a small pocket that I can put money or cards in if I don't want to carry my entire pouch and theres a metal strap long enough to wear it crossbody. 

The G.H. Cretors Chicago Mix Popper Corn was my second favorite thing in the box. The popcorn is a mix of caramel and cheddar popcorn. I mostly separated the two flavors when eating and my favorite had to be the caramel. I did try it a few times together and it was quite good. I think it was more of a mental thing thananything. But I would definitely buy this again as I ate the bag in a few days after receiving the box. No Judgement Zone lol.

MY FAVORITE is the K. Hall Simpatico Ambergris Shea Butter Cream. I use this lotion everyday and carry it with me everywhere. It's perfect for my purse but I do use it on my entire body. I call this my "Grown Woman" lotion. The cream is the perfect thickness and the scent is heaven. It's great for my dry skin and the fragrance isn't too much. It's like having perfume on. I love a two in one product. 

So that's it for this month's POPSUGAR Must Have Box. I appreciate them sending this over to me to check out. You can subscribe to the monthly box for $39.95 a month.

Beast Mode

Today was church day aka Sunday and the Thir-tee Days of Tees continues. I've been trying to figure out what to wear with this pink skirt for months now. I think it was the perfect pop of color for this outfit. The length is great to show a peek of shoe or sock in this case. And Stance socks are my new favorite and are perfect for showing off.  This H&M jacket it's a great transition piece from fall to winter. The weather here in LA is so up and down it's a must to layer for these ever changing temperature. Check out some jackets, skirts and socks below to help you re-create this look. How do you layer this fall? How do you add a pop of color?

Thir-tee days of tees continues. Today was a more sporty fall look. I wanted to layer this look for the crazy weather we have been having in LA. One day it's 50 the next 85, craziness lol. So for this outfit I added two lightweight layers and scrunched down my socks with booties.  I love these booties They have slits on either side, a chunky heel and were only $40 at Burlington :). As you may have noticed this plaid shirt is my new go to. I wear this shirt ALL the time, as outwear, as an accessory or as just an shirt. Belted, tucked unbuttoned it looks good so many ways lol.  Enough about the shirt I think you guys get the point lol. Check out the links below on a few items to help you re-create this look.

Today was a set day with a new client. So as always I wanted to be cute and comfortable. I absolutely love this skirt that I picked up on sale at H&M a few months back. Of course I added a t-shirt, a fitted blazer and heels and was ready for my day. This t-shirt has been on my blog a few times and is always in rotation. One of my favorite accessories right now is this half white half black vintage belt that I try and wear any chance I get. Below are a few options of graphic tees and striped skirts to achieve this look. How do you rock your graphic tees?

Thir-tee Days of Tees Kick Off

Blazer Forever 21 | T-Shirt Beautiful Culture | Shorts Forever 21 | Socks H&M | Heels Cathy Jean | Bangles H&M | Necklace Vintage | Bag Vintage
My fabulous friend, Tieko Nejon, has challenged me to Thir-tee Days of Tees. This challenge is to showcase the diversity of t-shirts and how to take them from day to night, casual to dressy and everywhere in between. My first t-shirt is Beautiful Culture, a line owned by a great friend of mine, Stephen Paul. I've always had a love for Grace Jones and this picture embodies her in every way. BTW this shirt is a men's medium, you know I love a good men's item or two. It starting to get a bit chilly in LA so I added some sheer tights and thigh high socks for an extra layer with my open toe shoes. Below are a few options of oversized blazers and thigh high socks to help you achieve the same look.
