Top Instagram Roundup...

9:38:00 AM
Since I'm still under the weather, I thought that I'd share my top engaged Instagram posts from the past couple weeks today! I did brave out into the snow yesterday, so I will be back to my regular posts soon! :)

 sweater {very similar one here} || jeans || booties || earrings || dupe belt
By far my most liked sweater from this season! I love the chunky, loose fit!

I love finding new things while shopping, and I have swooned over this pearl embellished blouse!

You can never go wrong with a cute striped off the shoulder sweater, and this one seriously takes the cake! It's going to be the perfect transition sweater too!

I can live in comfy clothes, and this pullover is perfect for just that! It comes in other colors, but is currently low in stock. I did find a knock off fleece version if that's something you'd be interested in {HERE}

I've searched everywhere for the perfect fuzzy pink coat (but that also didn't cost a fortune). I just so happened to stumble upon this gorgeous one HERE and for under $50! 

If you're looking for a super cute and comfy sweater dress, this is the one to snag!

How To Make Your Sick Day A Little Bit Better...

8:11:00 AM
We all know that being sick is no bueno, and I'm definitely the kind of person that's a little whimpy when it comes to it too. Well, if you most know, I'm currently sick right now, and it has been kicking me in the butt for the past 4 days (I honestly think this has been the worst one yet too). Anyways, while being confined in my house, I wasn't able to get any outfit shoots in, but began to think about some of my favorite things to do that make my sick days just a little bit better and bearable! And, VOILA, with today's post I'll be sharing with you just that!

 DRESS AS COMFY AS YOU CAN:
I'm easily cold, so of course a cozy cardi is just what the doctor ordered! You also can't forget a comfy and trusty pair of leggings and/or sweatpants. You'll also need a warm pair of slippers or socks, but if you have to (and I mean have to) run to your local pharmacy, slipping on a pair of fuzzy lined boots will definitely keep you in that comfortable zone!

OPEN THE BLINDS:
Sometimes I can get stuck in a rut while being sick and wallow in the misery of it, but a simple gesture of getting out of bed and opening the blinds helps bring a little positive energy back into my mindset!

 MAKE YOUR FAVORITE HOT TEA:
Hot tea warms the soul! I love teas with mint and lemon, and then I'll add a little bit of pure honey for a soothing finish (especially if I have a sore throat).

 SET A DIFFUSER:
I've learned a little about essential oils, and I've been setting our diffuser off through out the day and before I go to bed. I honestly like it because what I diffuse smells so so good and it's kind of relaxing. Almost spa like, haha!

 MAKE YOUR FAVORITE SOUP:
Ok, this is one of my favorites! I LOVE tomato bisque soup, and I usually eat it only when I'm sick. It's like a special treat for myself and something to look forward to! I even get a little creative and add a couple of extras to top it off, like: basil &, of course, gold fish! I'm such a kid at heart!

 DRAW A BUBBLE BATH:
If I feel like I'm at my worst, a bubble bath will usually help. I go for the soft scents like lavender or eucalyptus. Sometimes I'll even sprinkle a little bit of epsom salts.

 BINGE WATCH YOUR FAVORITE TV SHOW/MOVIES:
If I'm sick for a couple days or over the weekend, you'll probably see me binge watching my favorite Netflix shows and movies. It also gives me a chance to catch up on any shows that I've missed out on...or, you know, it will give me a chance to re-watch my favorite shows/movies (i.e. Harry Potter movies, Breaking Bad, The Office).

GET COZY & (MOST IMPORTANTLY) REST:
Pile up the pillows and the blankets, because it's time to get plenty of rest! I love to surround myself with all things cozy, whether it's my favorite blanket or fluffiest pillow, I'm all about the importance of being comfortable!

A Comfy Chic Look...

8:40:00 AM







I've noticed that, in some way shape or form, I incorporate some hint of black into my outfits. This time around, I centered today's outfit all around it! There's always something so chic and flattering about wearing black, and it's honestly one of those colors that everyone looks good in! Today I'm sharing my all black look (ok, minus the jeans, haha) that features a comfy lapeled jacket, turtleneck, and over the knee boots.  The jacket is something that's a little bit out of my usual styling realm, but couldn't get over just how good it looked with a simple turtleneck. Together they create this easy look that's both stylish and affordable (which is a plus, yass!).

So I hope everyone is having a great week so far! As you may know, I have created my first ever makeup tutorial on Youtube, and I'm so ready to embark on a whole new outlet and use it as a place to answer your questions and for you to get to know me better. I know that I'm a little more reserved on Instagram, but I think I'm ready to open up a little more and just be myself :) I have a few ideas on the next 2 or 3 videos---the next being my hair tutorial, so I'll keep ya'll updated on that more later!
