Glittery

23377336_085_a

How amazing are these shoes?! I've been crushing on just about all types of glitter shoes but haven't found a pair that I MUST have. I saw these beauties in the latest Urban Outfitters catalog. They are a perfect balance of playful and wearable. It's just enough glitter that you could rock them during the day time and take them into evening party time. I love to have options! They also come in two other color combos for my fellow glitter gals!

Holiday Season

.

I had such a fabulous Thanksgiving weekend. Food, fun and shopping! I spent Thanksgiving day with my boyfriends family and I made a couple of nibbles that were amazing! Now I'm in full on holiday mode, bring on the music, jingles bells and snow!

Nibbles

Thanksgiving is right around the corner...gobble gobble! I'm spending Thanksgiving with my boyfriends family and then heading to my parents for the rest of the weekend. I'm beyond excited to get to spend a lot of quality time with family. 
For the big Thanksgiving day I'm in charge of a couple of appetizers. I must say I have a major love for starters, appetizers or nibbles as I like to call them. So I wanted to step it up and try something new. I did some brainstorming and lots of research and finally decided on two fabulous bite size goodies.

Eco Tools

001

I have to share these amazing new makeup brushes I have! I love makeup and beauty products as much as I love shoes. Great brushes are just as imporant as the products you are putting on your face.

These brushes by Eco Tools by Alicia Silverstone are amazing! They are super soft, high quality and give me that flawless application I love. This set come with a finishing brush, angled eye shadow brush (perfect for a smoky eye), lash and brow groomer and a counter top brush cup. I also adore how eco -friendly these products are, good for you and the earth!

I saw these shoes and I was instantly in love! They are a perfect mix of flashy and feminine. These heels would be perfect for any upcoming holiday parties or with some skinny jeans to add a little pop of fun. So many options, so little time!
I also ran to an Aldo Store to make sure they were just as fabulous in person and luckily they are!

Black & White

054

I have a major love for black and white clothing. Over half of my closet is stocked in these two colors and I must say its one of my all time favorite color combos. It's classic, chic and works in so many ways. I spent this past weekend in Madison, WI with friends and this was the perfect outfit for our day to night activities.

New Era

I recently went to the store opening for the New Era Chicago store on State Street. It was a fabulous party packed with great products, people and music! Every now and then I've got to check out something for the boys.

Versace for H&M

Last night was the fashion show and launch party for the Versace for H&M collection! It hits stores November 19 at 8am. I'll be in line bright and early to snatch up my favorite from the collection. Here's a few things I'm lusting after! I'm sure with all the hype I'm going to end up with more that I planned!

Eddie Bauer

Last week I was invited to check out the new Eddie Bauer holiday collection. I must say I loved so many pieces, I haven't shopped there in ages so it was nice to be re-introduced! They were kind enough to take photos of me checking out the collection so I had to share these pics and some of my favorite items! 
Thanks to the fabulous team at the Michigan Avenue Eddie Bauer!
