I absolutely LOVE sequins! If I could wear sequins everyday without looking like I'm doing the morning walk of shame, I would totally wear it! I own a few sequin dresses and this one is hands down my FAVORITE one oh and did I mention that it's on sale?! #score

The sequins on this dress are so nice, my photos don't do justice. The dress has a little bit of weight to it but that just goes to show that the quality is really good. The only negative thing about this dress is that the side slit is way too high. It goes all the way up to my upper thigh so I had to use safety pins and fashion tape to seal most of it off. Regardless of the high slit, i'm still keeping it because my make shift "slit closer" works for me and I just can't get over how fabulous this dress is!

My CVS Beauty Haul

I'm so excited to do a haul from my CVS trip the other week. As most of you all know, CVS is my go-to for anything beauty related. They have the best deals and I love using their Extra Care Card rewards! Make sure you stop by the coupon machine and scan your rewards card before you shop. I always end up saving so much money with all of their awesome coupons!

The first item that caught my eye in the skincare department is the 'La Rouche-Posay Micellar Water' for sensitive skin. I have been using micellar water for the last 6 years and I absolutely consider it a beauty essential/staple. I use it to remove my make-up before washing my face at the end of the night. I love how gently and effective it is with removing all of my make-up. This is the first time I'll be trying the La Rouche-Posay version and I can't wait to see how it compares to other brands!!

The second item I got is the 'Vichy Mineralizing Thermal Water'. I really enjoy spraying my face with a water mist after applying my make-up or on days where I feel my skin is tight and dry. I find water mists to be refreshing and often times they make my skin glow. This one from Vichy caught my eye because the packaging says that it is 'rich in 15 minerals that will help create a stronger barrier for healthier looking skin!' Sold!

My next item is a holy grail product for me. I've been using 'Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion' for years. I love how nourishing it is for my skin and it doesn't have a fragrance which is a huge plus. Aveeno is the only body lotion we use in my home. We love how gentle it is and how it softens our skin.

The 'Babylips Moisturizing Lip Balm' is a great lip balm to keep in your handbag. I was really excited when Maybelline came out with this line a few years ago because the name 'Babylips' gives off an image of soft lips which is exactly what this lip balm does. I appreciate the SPF20 as my lips are always getting burned.

I was in need of a new mascara so I picked up 'The Falsies Push Up Angel' from Maybelline. I'm a fan of the regular 'Falsies' mascara so I'm excited to try this one. If you've tried it, please let me know your thoughts.

I scoured the beauty department for a pressed powder and came upon 'Maybelline's 'Fit Me Matte + Poreless.' I don't always have time to do a full face of make-up in the morning so I needed a good powder that would help cover some flaws and balance out my complexion. I tested this out on my hands and it looks like the powder is light to medium coverage. I can't wait to review this in my next monthly favorites.

Anyone a fan of NYX cosmetics? I LOVE their butter glosses! They're very affordable and the color range is great! These glosses are seriously the bomb! I have purchased high-end designer lip glosses and no doubt, I always come back to these NYX Butter Gloss. You must try them. The color are true to the tube and they're not sticky. They actually moisturize your lips like a really good chapstick. My personal favorite colors are 'creme brûlée' and 'cupcake'.

I can't leave the store without picking up some false eyelashes. Lashes aren't for everyone but I personally love 'Ardell Natural' #110. I actually buy them in bulk. They look very natural on and they're not heavy nor will they weigh down your real lashes.

So I'm not sure if you've noticed in my last post but CVS now has last-minute beauty products in the checkout aisles. How convenient!! They have travel-friendly and on-trend beauty products from some of the best-selling brands. I picked up Trial Size Facial Mask because I love a good face mask and 'Fashion Tape' from Hollywood. This tape is good for preventing wardrobe malfunction.

So that's it for my haul! I can't wait to use and try some of the new items I got. Definitely let me know what your favorite beauty products are from CVS.

Christmas is just around the corner and I haven't even started my gift list! #yikes! I'll be one of those crazy women running around the day before Christmas buying up the entire mall but at least I'll be appropriately dressed for the holidays!

Today I'm partnering with Payless again to share with you my fabulous holiday shoes (See my other awesome shoe posts here and here)! If you don't own a pair of red heels, now is the perfect time to get em because nothing says, "merry christmas" quite like a beautiful pair of red heels!

I picked out these lace up heels-- what can I say, it was love at first sight! They were practically calling out to me, begging me to add them to my cart! I love them so much and YOU GUYS! They are on MAJOR SALE RIGHT NOW! They're only $10!! You CAN NOT BEAT THAT! These heels also come in a black color as well as an option for regular and wide.

For Rylie, I picked out these cute bow maryjanes. They're easy to slip on and off with the velcro strap. Currently they are on sale for $15 and these come in a black color option as well.

Thanks to Payless, my holiday shoefie days are a covered! If I were you, I'd be running to a store near you or to their website!

For The Photographer

Untitled4


1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9

If you've been following me for a while then you know how much I love taking photos and am always inspired by different types of photography. Today I wanted to share a few gift ideas for the social media photographer in your life.

Tech Case - This case is so nice to pack extra battery packs, lenses and wires. Oh and I really like that it's pink (of course there are other colors).

Wireless Remote - I got this remote years ago and it's great! It hooks up to your call phone's bluetooth so you can take photos of yourself instead of using the camera timer. It's really easy to use!

Cell Phone Tripod - If you're going to use the wireless remote, I definitely recommend getting a little tripod for your phone as well. It can be difficult setting up your camera without one.

Phone Lens - Ok, this is for the hardcore social media photographer. You can clip these lenses onto your phone for different effects. I don't own this but it's on my christmas wish list for Santa.

Battery Pack - This is a given! If you take a lot of photos you are bound to drown your battery life.

Wire Organizer - These little cute clips will help keep all of your wires tidy and organized.

DSLR Remote - I love this remote. Even though my husband take a majority of my photos, sometimes he's not around so I need to use my camera tripod and remote. I have owned this remote for the last 4 years and it works really well with my DSLR.

DSLR Tripod - Along with my remote, I own this tripod. This tripod isn't the top quality but it does what it says and is sturdy enough for my needs. It works well on concrete and on carpet.

iPhone Photo Printer - This one is also on my wish list. A portable photo printer for all of the photos stored up on your phone!

Winter has finally made it's way to Socal because it's been quite chilly this week! I'm not complaining at all because I LOVE the cold and it gave me the perfect opportunity to wear my new favorite weather boots from Payless. "Boots with the fur... she had the whole club looking at her." hahaha! I always have to sing that song whenever I see these kinds of boots. My boots are currently only $59 dollars #paylessforstyle-- much better for your budget compared to department store brands that start at $150! These boots are perfect for the cold weather and will keep your feet warm and dry. Oh and did I mention how comfortable they are?! If you're between sizes, I would recommend sizing down because they do run a little big. They also come in a black version. If you're in the market for weather boots, I definitely recommend these. I will be wearing these all winter long!

My red fur coat is one of my favorites but is sadly sold out but I was able to find one that's very similar. My grey plaid scarf is a new purchase and I'm so happy with it. It definitely keeps my neck warm and you can't go wrong with plaid!
