I know, it's been a while since I've written a blog post. Lately, I just don't know where the time keeps going...I've been super busy and unfortunately have had no time to blog :( . I was supposed to go to the city yesterday so I was going to take outfit pictures/Chistmassy New York City pictures but unfortunately it was snowing all day so I didnt get to go...hopefully that post will be coming next weekend! 

So instead, I've created a "Christmas Wishlist" because I love making collages like this one. Bear in mind, this isn't my actual "Wishlist-- this is a WISHlist with emphasis on the "wish" because most of this stuff I cannot afford, and wouldn't ask other people to get for me. For example, these $150 All Saint Jeans, or $180 Zara Parka. For me though, it's fun to create outfit collages like this one, especially for inspiration! Like I said in my "Autumn Looks for Less" post, with a little searching you can usually find similar pieces for a fraction of the price :)

If you could create your ultimate Christmas WISHlist, what would you put on it?

Happy Holidays everyone!

The Christmas Tag

I was tagged by Robin to do the Christmas Tag! I love festive tags so I was very excited to give this a go :)

Do you prefer a real Christmas tree or synthetic? 
Definitely a real Christmas tree. Yes, they are quite messy and annoying to clean up but nothing beats the smell of fresh pine needles on Christmas morning :)

You're in a coffee shop, it's December, what do you pick up?
Most of the time some kind of hot chocolate...peppermint hot chocolate or salted caramel hot chocolate is always good, although I really want to try the Gingerbread Latte from Starbucks! (Can anyone recommend it?) 

What's your favorite color scheme for decorating the tree?
I think white lights look so classy and pretty, and any ornaments will do-- I especially like gold, silver and red ones.

Giving or receiving? 
Giving if I know I've thought of a good gift.. The frustrating part is actually deciding on the right gift, and I'm pretty terrible at that! I just like to see the look on people's faces when you've given them a good gift :)

To mince pie or not to?
Is this a UK thing? Because I'm pretty sure we don't do that in the US haha..

What's your traditional Christmas lunch?
I don't really have "lunch" on Christmas because I'm always saving up for a giant dinner! For dinner we have lamb chops, mashed potatoes, broccoli bake (I can't even EXPLAIN how good it is) and lots of other yummy things.

Christmas day fashion
I'm usually in my PJs for most of the day, but once we go out I usually wear black leggings, black booties, and a pretty shirt/sweater. 

What's your favourite Christmas song?
Can I say all of them...? 

What's your favourite Christmas film?
Elf 100%. Elf in general is just one of my favorite movies ever. December is the best because they always play it on ABC Family!

Open presents before or after lunch?
My family opens presents once everyone is awake! I don't think I would have it in me to wait all day haha.

I tag Conny, Michelle, and Emily to do this tag. I love seeing everyone get in the mood for the holidays :)

The Best & Worst Looks of the 2013 AMAs

I had so much fun writing my "Top 5 Best & Worst Looks of the 2013 VMAs" post that I wanted to do another! Here are my favorite and not-so-favorite looks from the other night:


I love both Kendall and Kylie's outfits! Kendall's Dylanex necklace looks stunning against her white Keepsake dress, and I love how her hair is behind her neck so you can see the entire necklace. Kylie's outfit is also super chic: Her Maiyet top is cropped at the perfect length, and black and white is always a perfect combination in my opinion. 

Ke$ha looked stunning last night in her Michael Costello gown. I love the her soft, wavy hair and overall, she looks super elegant. The bow on the side adds the perfect amount of interest to what would have otherwise been a simple slit black dress.

Ariana looked stunning in her Dolce and Gabbana dress. Although it looked amazing photographs, I'm sure this was the kind of dress that looked spectacular in real life. And it fits her perfectly!

Okay, so who else CAN'T STOP listening to 1D's new album Midnight Memories?! IT'S. SO. GOOD. I love how the boys showed up in corresponding black & gray looks. Each outfit is slightly different, however, ( ie. Niall sporting a pair of sneakers, Liam opting for a long gray coat instead of a blazer), and I love how they each kept true to their own styles. 


While this is a cool dress, there is just way too much going on for me. Instead of focusing on Ciara, I'm only wrapped up in the dress. There are so many cutouts and I just don't know where to look.

When Emma was being interviewed on the carpet by Giuliana Rancic, she talked about how obsessed she is with fashion and I couldn't help but go, "huh?" This dress definitely did not do it for me. It looks like a shiny trash bag and I'm not feeling the matching pink bag & shoes. (Sorry Emma!)

Not even supermodel Heidi Klum could make this dress look good. Between the fringe, the lace, the cutouts...there is way to much going on here and I don't like any of it. If any Project Runway contest had designed that, I'm pretty sure we would have heard Heidi's famous "aufedersein."

Matching the green in your dress to your hair is just never a good idea. This looks like a Halloween costume to me. Is anyone else getting "Wicked Witch" vibes?

Sara Silverman's dress doesn't seem to fit right and that color is blinding! I'm also not a fan of those shoes. 

Overall, I was a little underwhelmed at the fashion this year at the AMAs, but there definitely were some standouts. 
Do you agree with my picks?
