Layer It Up!

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

It's all about layering for fall. Multi-layers are so in right now. Layer sweaters, cardigans, tank tops, leggings, blazers, jackets, even accessories like necklaces and scarves! You can take layers off and put some on as you please, how fab is that?!

Here are some layered looks:

Have fun layering your favorite pieces this fall and look hot while at the same time keep warm!

P.S. Thanks for all of your input on the coats on my previous post. I decided to get the Arctic Parka!! I'm liking the fur too just like you ladies! =)

Winter Coat Help!

Monday, September 28, 2009

Hello my lovies (no, not lovelies, it's not a typo ;)!

I need your opinion please! I'm planning on buying a new winter coat, but I'm stuck on which one to buy. I love North Face jackets because they are so super warm and pretty lightweight, and I definitely need a warm coat for those brutal Chicago winters!

I can't decide between the following two. I picked these two in particular because they are longer in length so they are probably a lot warmer, like a body suit! hehe. I'm looking more for warmth than style as you can probably see.

Please pick the one you like best! All your help is really appreciated. Thanks all! xoxo

With Fall Comes Premieres

Monday, September 21, 2009

Say goodbye to the trashy summer TV shows. Now that it's fall, there are so many premieres and shows to watch. I guess that's one good thing about summer being over....good TV!

Here is what is on my
DVR queue right now (DVR is one of the best inventions EVER!!!! Fast forwarding through commercials and watching shows when you want to is heaven!):

-Gossip Girl
yes, I know I watch a show that 13 year olds watch and I'm not ashamed to admit it! ok, maybe just a little...

-How I Met Your Mother

-Project Runway

-America's Next Top Model

-Top Chef

-The Office

Yes, I watch too much TV. I'm guilty. My DVR memory is getting fuller and fuller every day. I really need to catch up on my shows this weekend. Either that or cut down on my shows, gasp!

Eye Cream

Tuesday, September 1, 2009

Do any of you use eye creams? When is the right time to even start using one? I just started using a gentle one recently. I'm in my twenties, and I figure it's never too early to start!

This is the one I'm currently using:
Eye Love Cucumber Soothing Eye Gel

It's really soothing and gentle to my eyes, so I like it. Plus it's made with cucumbers which are supposed to be fab for your eyes!

These are also supposed to be wonderfully effective:
Perscriptives Anti-Age Advanced Protection Eye Cream SPF 25
