Holding Onto Fall

Now that Thanksgiving has come and gone, the frigid temperatures seem to be here to stay, and it got me thinking that snowy weather is just around the corner.  I’ve never been a fan of the snow. Yeah, the first snow fall always looks beautiful and peaceful but after a few snow storms I’m over it.  Plus, have you ever walked through the streets of Manhattan while it’s snowing or after a big snow storm?  It’s a slushy mess that just makes my commute unbearable.  I’d rather an autumn wonderland than a winter wonderland, so before the snow arrives, I’m… View Post

It’s Turkey Time

T-minus one day until Turkey Day!  Are you mentally preparing for what you will be stuffing your face with on Thanksgiving? Or how about strategically planning for how you are gonna fit all the Thanksgiving specialties on one plate?  For me, I’m planning what I’m gonna wear for the Thanksgiving festivities.  For Thanksgiving my family gathers at my aunt’s house so I don’t have to worry about dressing too fancy but still want to look stylish yet still be comfy because it’s a long day of eating and drinking a couple glasses of wine (I’m gonna need it to get… View Post

Are You Faux Real?

Is it just me or are others really freaked out over how fast 2017 is speeding by.  I can’t believe next week is already Thanksgiving.  Maybe freaked out is the wrong phrase but it just boggles my mind we are already fully in holiday mode.  Just today I was listening to the radio on my way to the train station and I heard a Christmas ad and thought to myself isn’t it a little early for Christmas ads and that’s when it hit me…Christmas is next month.  Are you for real?  Or in this case are you FAUX real?  You… View Post

12 Ways To Mix Up Your Personal Style

If you ever get a little bored of wearing the same old trusty outfits or rocking the same old style you’ve always rocked, then mixing up your style could be the way forward.  Sometimes, when we wear things we wouldn’t usually go for, it can really open up our minds and change our perspective on what we consider to be “our style.” You can be whoever you want from day to day.  Be a hippie today and a sharp business woman tomorrow.  Wear the clothes that make you feel the way you want to feel.  You’re under no obligation to… View Post

Buffalo (Plaid) Soldier 

Does anyone know the difference between plaid, checkered, or the buffalo plaid pattern?  To me these three terms are interchangeable.  Although in the fashion world, plaid is described as different sized vertical and horizontal stripes of two or more colors, checkered is described as equal sized squares of two alternating colors, and buffalo plaid is described as a larger, square checkered pattern.  I had to brush off on my old skills of working retail at Madewell and learning all about their trendy flannels and all the different patterns so I settled on buffalo plaid to describe the shirt I’m wearing… View Post

From Summer To Pumpkin Season

So you celebrated the summer season with a bright and light decor that gave your home a fresh and exciting style?  Great!  But the problem with the summer style is that, once the Halloween pumpkins are out, it doesn’t look as stylish and exciting as it did in July.  It’s time to work on your transitional decor and to prepare the home for winter… but first, let’s think of the Halloween decor.  No, it doesn’t mean sticking a plastic skeleton on the shelf and hoping for the best.  It’s about getting the colors and feelings of fall into your home… View Post

Indian Summer

In·di·an sum·mer ˈindēən ˈˌsəmər/ noun – a period of unusually dry, warm weather occurring in late autumn. A mild, warm autumn or an Indian summer is certainly what New England has been experiencing throughout September and the early part of October.  I always felt that once Labor Day came the weather did a 180 and started to actually feel like fall. But lately temperatures have been abnormally high in the 70s and 80s.  The days have felt like a continuation of the dog days of summer, especially in New York City. A lot of the time I am overheating by… View Post

Her Campus College Fashion Week 2017 Recap

Hands down, one of my favorite things about being a blogger and a Youtuber, is the events.  Events, like tradeshows, panels, fashion shows, and forums, is where I get the chance to be surrounded by people like me.  Meeting other talented bloggers and influencers is what makes blogging worthwhile.  I can’t describe the feeling I get when I finally put a face to a name, meet some of the people behind my favorite brands, discover new brands, and the best part meeting new blogger friends.  This is exactly what the Her Campus Fashion Week is all about.  I’m extremely grateful… View Post

The Lazy College Girl Skincare Routine ft. Clarisonic

This morning, I hit an all time low. I was applying my makeup, getting ready for the day and all of a sudden I remembered I did not brush my teeth. I can’t believe it. I blame the lack of sleep and everything on my mind other than dental hygiene. As you can tell by this situation, I am a typical busy, scattered brain college girl. I hate to admit this but it seems like when I am crunched for time, my skincare routine suffers. I’d rather use my time responding to emails, writing blog posts, finishing up class assignments,… View Post

My Experience: Her Campus College Fashion Week

It’s been five days and I am still on a fashion high from Saturday’s Her Campus Fashion Show.  It was a night filled with awesome style, lots of freebies, great music, loads of pictures, and most importantly empowerment.  As I mentioned in my previous post, all four of the fashion shows featured creative entrepreneur designers, including My Social Canvas, Foray, Ali & Ariel, Frill Clothing, and Bow & Drape.  I loved watching the models strut on the runway, featuring the amazing designs from the four designers.  I was so impressed with the fashion and I was so happy I got… View Post
