5 Weekend Favorites

I went shopping quite a bit these last few days, but I managed to only purchase a few things (thank you gift cards!) I love looking at all of the new arrivals after the holidays, even if I'm only "just looking". Here are some of my favorites I wanted to share with my favorite fashionistas!

Inspiration Board: New Year's Eve

New Year's Eve is always filled with high expectations and pressure to make it the perfect celebration..although most of the time I just go to dinner with friends and toast the big night at home. These are some ideas of what I would be wearing for a (conservative) night on the town. One of my favorite chic and easy ways to rock a night out is to pair a sparkly top with some cool pants and heels, done. Oh, and that cute little mini emergency kit is now less than ten dollars, the perfect grab and go kit. Keep in mind as you are shopping to make purchases that can be worn again, but maybe in a different way, so you aren't always buying a one-time-only item, even if it is less than twenty dollars.

What are you New Year's plans - staying in or a night on the town?

HM Mask $9.95 // H&M Earrings $7.95 // * Pinch Provisions Mini Emergency Kit $8.70 ($18) //
 Xhilaration Sequin Dress $20.98 // H&M Pumps $34.95 // Mossimo Dress $24.99
H&M Jeans $29.95 // H&M Draped Top $15

12 Weekend Favorites under $30

Carrie Bradshaw knew what she was talking about when she declared "shopping is my cardio" on Sex and the City so many years ago, and even though it was in response to not wanting to shop online, this weekend I definitely got my workout in.. and then some! The color palette is definitely lightening up at the stores with shades of mint and orange popping up the most. Here are some of my favorite things I spotted on my adventures at the mall and everything is thirty dollars or less!

Ipsy Glam Bag - December 2013

The December Ipsy Glam Bag theme is 'Celebration' and it's all about the sparkle! My favorite items in the bag are the bag itself, the mini nail polish, and the beauty blender (the most buzzed about "sponge" like, ever.) While the make-up in this month's bag are decent enough products, the colors I received aren't the best on this girl's pale skin. Even though I don't love every single product, I still only paid $10 for $36 worth of beauty surprises, adding the price of the beauty blender and the value jumps to $60, not bad at all. Ps.I still get beyond happy to see the pink metallic bag in the mail too!

Target New Arrivals!!

Now that Christmas is less than two weeks away, I find myself at Target even more than usual..which is hard to believe. I'm surprised there isn't a parking space with my name on it at this point, I'll have to speak with the manager, LOL. Naturally, every trip I have to make a quick stop in the clothing department and this week I found so many new arrivals (I'm still waiting for handbag arrivals after seeing them online), hope you enjoy!
