Well, I have officially reached my limit of photos to upload. Just a month before my blog anniversary :( I am debating whether I want to pay for additional storage or not. I am not really sure if anyone even looks at my blog. 
On a side note, if you are looking, I am trying to figure out some tips for saving money. I have this odd habit of buying anything I want, and it is becoming a problem!
I need motivation and some tips, please!

Dear Santa

Dear Santa

Well, is it that obvious?!
 Nearly everything I am eyeing this Christmas has an adorable "T" on it. Tory Burch has some adorable gift ideas and finds for the holiday season. How can a girl resist?! ;)

Regardless of the adorable emblem, these particular finds are on the top of my wish list, and I'm sure will be on the top of many! Santa may not be able to bring me all of these goodies for Christmas, but one can dream!

Pony Parade

{Pony Blouse, Nordstrom; Black pants, H&M; Black Cardigan, Express; Black Flats, Tory Burch; Bag, Louis Vuitton; Bracelets, Tory Burch & Kate Spade NY}

A few months ago, I spotted this cute blouse at Nordstrom. I wanted it so bad, but I didn't want to spend the money. It was not too expensive, but I certainly didn't need anymore blouses (I'm a collector, I've been told). Anyway, Nordstrom was having their half-yearly sale, and I was browsing through the racks. Obviously, I had my hands full of amazing finds. All of them, I did not need. Then, shoved in the middle of the rack, there was THE blouse, and it was in my size! I was amazed and thought it was "meant to be" and had to get it! It was half off too!

The bold lip was a spur of the moment thing. It added a little color to my colorless ensemble. :)

Casual Friday

Most recently, I have been loving candles! I find that candles really relax me after an exhausting day and are great for mindfulness :) This Yankee Candle "Buttercream" is one of my new favorites.
The candle on the right is from Henri Bendel. Also an amazing place for pretty candles!

Hope everyone experiences some mindfulness this weekend -

Rustic Style

Rustic Style

This outfit was inspired by my mom's plaid shirt that we found the other day. I like this Madewell one above, but hopefully my mom's can make an appearance on the blog soon!
She says to me, "do you even KNOW how old this is??" I guess that shows my age too?
One day I will purchase a spiked necklace. It can make any look more edgy, and those Acne boots. I die!

DIY: Glitter Mason Jar

How to make a glitter mason jar.
Easy, fun, and very inexpensive!

Before you start, you will need . . .
Supplies: Loose Glitter, Mason Jars (both from the dollar store), Paint Brush, Paper Bowl, Craft Glue, Painters Tape (not pictured), and newspaper

Step 1:
Tape your mason jar just above the area you want the glitter for a clean, fresh edge.

Step 2:
Use your paintbrush to paint the area of the mason jar where you want the glitter to sparkle.

Step 3: After the area is covered with glue, Sprinkle the glitter! I used a paper bowl to catch the stragglers and keep the mess minimum.

Step 4: Let glitter dry in the paper bowl for at least one hour (I waited longer just to be safe).
Step 5: Remove painters tape slowly, and..

 Job Finished!
(Note: I did not put glue or glitter on the bottom of the jar.)

 I love it! 
I've wanted to do this DIY project for so long, and I'm so happy I did. It was very easy and inexpensive. Nearly every supply item can be found at the dollar store.
I think it makes a perfect home for my glitter pens!

McQueen Inspired

{Skull Blouse (similar here) and Peach Pants (similar here), T.J. Maxx; Black T-Shirt, Target; Black Boots, Michael Kors, here; Bag, Rebecca Minkoff; Bracelets, Tiffany & Co, Tory Burch, Kenneth Cole; Sunnies, Chanel} 

My maid of honor and I went shopping a couple weekends ago and grabbed some yummy dinner. We were browsing through T.J. Maxx, after having our hands full with wedding goodies and house stuff, we spotted this skull blouse. Both of us looked at each other, and we both knew that we needed this blouse! My MOH (maid of honor) said something along the lines of, "what kind of message am I sending if I wear this?" I thought the same thing, but then I realized, who cares! We can just wear it for fun. So, I did. I am very happy they had two blouses in our size!

Skulls have been popping up all over the place lately. Originally, I only saw skulls on Alexander McQueen items, but now they're everywhere! I love my McQueen scarf, but I found it for an extremely, and I mean EXTREMELY inexpensive price, and that is why I have it. However, I cannot justify spending full price on a skull scarf or blouse. Needless to say, I am happy that I spotted this one!

What do you think?! Are skulls a yes or no?

{Chambray Top, TopShop, gifted; Skinny Jeans, A&F; Scarf, My mommy's; Leather Boots, Michael by Michael Kors; Duffle Bag, Coach}

I bought these boots during Nordstrom's anniversary sale, and I am most definitely proud of my purchase! However, I couldn't wear these babies for months!! Today was the day I decided to take them out of their pretty box and wear them. It was hard, at first, to get any sort of dirt on them or scratch, but I realized they are shoes, and that's what they're for. lol

The next few weeks will be incredibly hectic. I have a major exam coming up for school, and I am swamped with assignments and other aspects of my internship. 
I will try to post as much as I can!

Thanks for reading!
