Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I’m so excited to be spending the holidays with my friends and family. From good food to good conversations to yummy pumpkin pie. And let’s not forget all the sales going on this week! Eeek!! Danger!
Below you’ll find some AMAZING Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals and steals I stumbled upon that I’ll definitely be shopping right after I stuff my face with delicious food. 😉 Gobble gobble! Happy shopping everyone!
Asos is a no-brainer for em. I shop them all the time. Asos is having up to 60% off casual looks for men and women (11/24-11/26) on Black Friday, and on Monday 30% off EVERYTHING (11/27-11/30). Code: BLESSED
boohoo is another favorite online store of mine, and I’m currently coveting all of their outerwear. They’re having 70% off EVERYTHING for US and 50% off EVERYTHING for UK (11/27-11/30). Here are my favorites.
Nordstrom is having a HUGE SALE and I cannot even handle. Up to 50% off select styles for all + free shipping and returns (11.26 – 11.27) for Black Friday. Cyber Monday Savings of up to 50% off select top brands + Free shipping and returns (11/30). I found some bridesmaids dresses I really love.

So last week, I decided to attempt to do the crown braid. I’ve done it before but with extensions, which made it much easier than this time around. I don’t know, what do you all think? Did I do ok? I think I did.
Any chance I get to have my fiancé make a special appearance on the blog, I take! I love having him on, especially since he’s always behind the lens. Even if it’s just showing our matching his and hers watches. 😉
The beau and I have quite a watch collection, so when Wood Watches by Jord reached out, I instantly wanted to work with them. It’s one of my favorite accessories to wear. My go-to accessories tend to always be either a classic watch or dainty jewelry (you can find great pieces here at http://www.freshtrends.com by the way). Whenever I want to make a bold statement, a classic watch is what I like to wear. Or if I want something soft and simple, dainty pieces are what I end up pulling from my jewelry armoire
What are your go-to accessories? And how do you like to style them? Share!

As a little girl, I imagined what my wedding would be like, but growing up I really didn’t think much about it as most girls do. Don’t get me wrong I, too have a secret Pinterest board dedicated to what my future wedding would be like. I guess I just never thought it would happen for me until we got engaged. I think after that, it all sort of became real and hit me that this was it. It was time to officially begin the planning process of my dream wedding (somebody pinch me).
So this is it you guys. I’m a bride-to-be, officially planning my wedding… eek!! With that said, I decided to round up just a few essentials that recently came to mind I thought were perfect and definitely a must have for the big day.
Since it’s not practical to get ready in your gown, these beautiful kimono robes are just what my bridesmaids and I need during hair and makeup. Under the Canopy Kimono Bathrobes are simple, yet ultra elegant and so right up my alley. I love that they are light weight and that they tie around the waist, which is essential and very important.
If it’s one thing I want more than anything on my wedding day is to be comfortable, and by that I mean my feet. Packing a pair of flats is essential, however; I want to look cute all day and all night, and there is no reason why I should need to switch out from my beautiful heels to an ordinary pair of flats. This is why I am so happy Sole Serum came into my life. As cheesy as that may sound, I’m completely serious. This is a miracle in a bottle, literally! I don’t know why this wasn’t invented sooner but i’m glad Sole Serum is in my life. Sole Serum is a serum designed to target and heal foot pain. This magic in a bottleserum will take you from day to night and that is music to my ears… err feet! Happy feet for my bridesmaids and I are in order!!!
This metallic box clutch is a must have. It will carry all the things I need and will allow me to be hands-free as well.
As opposed to a jacket, I love the idea of a wrap for my bridesmaids. This cashmere wrap is light weight and an easy alternative to throw on over, especially for an outdoor reception.
An iPhone case?! I know it may sound silly but we carry our phones with us everywhere we go, and since everyone will be snapping photos during the ceremony and reception, I think it’s a good idea to have a fun case like this Kate Spade Flamingo case to be able to distinguish your phone from the rest. After all, you don’t want to end the day on a sad note by losing your phone.
I hope these 5 essentials were helpful and if you have any suggestions or advise for a new bride-to-be, please leave a comment below. Would love to hear them!
A little menswear inspired today with my favorite grey fedora, layerings, boyfriend jeans, topped it off with a new statement piece from Private Cartel. This statement necklace was the perfect accesory to add a touch of feminine to this tom-boyish look.
Ok, ok… I seriously need this trench coat in every single color because it goes with everything and I’ve been in the mood to wear this coat with practically everything everyday (not literally but I do wish I could wear it everyday). This is why I love basics, classics… staple pieces because you can style them however you’d like with almost anything you’d like. That’s the beauty of owning key pieces in your closet. Plus, it’s the best way to style so many different looks without breaking the bank. Basic items go a long way.
