Hands down, one of my favorite things about being a blogger is discovering new shops and brands that offer unique items. I love having the power to share with my readers my style finds from lesser known stores and brands.          Ever since starting my blog, Etsy has become my best friend. For those who are not familiar with Etsy, it’s a website that acts as a marketplace for people to buy and sell unique goods. On Etsy, you can discover hundreds of boutiques selling handmade and vintage items; things you can’t find at your typical mall.          Recently, I stumbled across a special boutique on Etsy, CharlotteCoutureGlam. I had the pleasure to chat with Tiffany Griffith, the owner of CharlotteCoutureGlam. Tiffany uses jewelry making as her creative outlet. Her pieces emphasize semi-precious stones, gold and sterling silver chains, elaborate beading, and real leather. Each piece is very unique and trendy. She told me she gets most of her inspiration from the beautiful scenery of northern California, where she makes her home. Her jewelry is versatile and you will find many ways to incorporate her pieces as you accessorize your favorite outfit.          After chatting with Tiffany, she was kind…

It is officially spring and how I wish the weather could be warmer and sunnier. I have never been so happy to see grass. To be honest, I almost forgot what grass looked like after our long snowy winter. Now that it is spring, it is time to embrace the spring trends. One of my favorite things to do is visit my favorite clothing stores, view their products, and figure out what trends are popular this season. After countless visits to my favorite stores and many hours spent online shopping, I have come up with a list of the trendiest of trends for spring 2015. Take a look at what follows to see what I’m thinking.  1. Fringe Hands down, fringe is one of my favorite trends this season. Fringe resembles that boho chic style, of which I am a huge fan. I love how you can incorporate this trend into any part of your outfit. Think sweaters, kimonos, jackets, purses, and of course necklaces. 2. 70s Vibe When I think of 1970s fashion, I think bohemian and disco. For the bohemian style, I recommend investing in a pair of flared jeans. Style flared pants with a paisley patterned blouse,…

On the train ride to the city, I had Taylor Swift’s song Welcome to New York stuck in my head. Seriously, that song is my anthem. For all of you who don’t know, I love New York City. I love the culture, the shopping, and all the possibilities the city has to offer. I hope within the next couple of years, I can call New York City my home. But for now, I take frequent trips to the city that never sleeps. Last week I was on spring break. It was nice to take a break from college life and spend the week at home, catching up on sleep, relaxing, and working on my blog. One day, I was feeling adventurous and creative, so I hopped on the train and journeyed to New York City. I was determined to take tons of photos for my blog. As always, the streets of New York inspired me and I captured some great shots for this post. On to my outfit, I refuse to wear my winter coat anymore. I officially retired my coat for the season, despite the weather still being on the chilly side, but once it reached 40 degrees consistently…

 Today, I woke up to the birds chirping and the sun shining through my windows, it is finally starting to feel like spring. This winter has been brutal with all the snow and frigid temperatures. I never thought I would be so excited to see the temperature rise above 40 degrees. It felt like a heat wave. I was determined to make the best out of this beautiful, spring like day so I decided to take my camera outside and explore my surroundings. I didn’t have a specific outfit planned for this shoot. I am so sick of my worn out winter coat and sweaters so I finally looked through my recent spring purchases and put together an outfit debuting my new pieces. My Forever 21 long-sleeve top is nothing special, but that’s why I like it because I can wear it with anything. A huge trend for spring is stripes so this shirt follows that trend in a subtle way. Hands down, my Brandy Melville cream sweater is my most worn sweater in my closet. It is so comfortable and provides extra warmth on a spring day. No matter what the season it is distressed denim in my must-haves.…
