NYE Look with Pink Slip Boutique + Giveaway (CLOSED)!

December 27, 2014

As we all get ready to look nice on NYE, I have to admit that finding the perfect look can be a bit challenging, especially if you want to wear something unique. Thankfully, I recently discovered Pink Slip Boutique, a special occasion boutique based in one of Chicago's suburban areas Mokena, Illinois. They also recently launched an online boutique so you can shop your favorite items from home. How amazing! 

When I was looking for the perfect NYE dress on their site, I found so many cute options that I almost could not decide which one to choose. I ended up choosing this gorgeous sequin aztec 'bodycon' dress. The quality and details on this dress are amazing! I also love how versatile this dress is, you can wear it on its own or with a pair of tights and black booties to keep you warm.

DIY: Nutella Hot Chocolate + Cozy Outfit Idea

December 16, 2014

One of my favorite things to do during winter time is make myself a cup of hot chocolate and stay in with a cozy outfit. It is no lie that I am obsessed with Nutella, so when I first made this recipe I was jumping with joy. It is so delicious and easy to prepare you're going to want to try it for yourself!  

When choosing a cozy outfit, I love to pair comfy leggings with a pair of knee-high socks. I also added a cute sweater from H&M, I love how it adds a little sparkle to an otherwise very plain look.
