Red Sparkle

This past wednesday I had the pleasure of attending the Red Sparkle pop-up beauty lounge event. Red Sparkle is a organization that encourages entrepreneurship in creative careers (like fashion and beauty) amongst young women in the DC metropolitan area. They held this event to celebrate the diversity within the fashion and beauty communities and to raise proceeds towards their worthy cause. The event was held at the beautiful La Petite Marmoset's show room  (my second home in my head) and was filled with fabulous bloggers and beauty lovers. I had an amazing time and even won a pair of crux NYC earrings in a raffle. Here are just a few pictures I was able to take at the event.

Snake Skin

Hello all, hope you enjoyed your weekend. I did a lot of shopping and a lot of eating which I will be paying for today in the gym. With that being said I think I will be doing a new video on my Youtube channel. Oh you didn't know I had a Youtube channel? Well I do, I only have 1 video right now and it was my first one so it's kinda funky but I do want to do more and do anticipate better quality. You can check out my first video and my future video's, under the video tab above.

Ok now to my outfit. It has gotten so cold here in the DC area and I don't like it. I am a "cold blooded" person so if the weather is anything under 75 degrees I am freezing, so this 50 degree weather and I are not getting along. But any who, I'm trying my best to get these pictures taken with minimal teeth chattering but as you can see, a picture of me shivering did get taken.
Ok so I have to gush about this super fab coat I got at H&M this weekend (I know, I couldn't wait to wear it). It was only $20 on sale! It was originally $65 so it was a pretty great deal. I find myself being quite the thrifty shopper these days (which usually isn' t the case). I must say that the responsibilities of adulthood may have a bit to do with it. Any way I have a few pounds of Mac and Cheese to burn off so I'll see you later.

Coat: H&M
Cardigan: NY&Co (similar here)
Skirt: H&M (Love this one)
Tight: via Marshalls
Boot: Nine West (Very similar here)

Thanksgiving Chic

Hello wonderful people, I hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving (if you celebrated). I myself, had a wonderful time catching up with family and eating yummy food and  was even able to get some picture of my outfit.
 I wanted be comfortable yet still chic and to wear something that would hide my food baby lol.
I love taking items and turning them into thing that are unexpected. When I found this scarf in forever 21 last year, I knew that I could make it a multipurpose item. I've worn it as a scarf, a skirt and now as a cape. It's great when you can take a piece and make it something different every time  you wear it.

Curried Butternut Squash Soup and Garlic Mash Potatoes

As I shared with you all yesterday, I am here with 2 of the four recipes that you could make for thanksgiving. The first recipe is a Butternut Squash Soup which tastes like a dream and would be a great way to start off any thanksgiving meal.

As the temperatures start to drop, I find my self gravitating more and more towards leather pieces. This leather skirt was another great thrift find. It's 100% leather and it is soft as butter. 
If you're wandering what the name of this posts comes from, it was inspired by the gorgeous statement necklace. Please don't hate me for featuring this again and again. I just love it. 
So is any body else as excited for the holidays as I am? I have been a big holiday fan since I can remember and it is something I just won't shake. If you all all are a lost for what to cook for this up coming thanksgiving, don't worry, I'll have 4 (yes 4 ) new recipes on the blog this week that should help you out. Any way, I think it's time for me to peel myself out of this bed and get ready for work, so I catch you on the flip side.

Jalapeño Popper dip

So this past Sunday, I was so grateful to attend a quint potluck at my blogger twin, Waverly's, house. As with all potluck, everyone was asked to bring a dish and I decided, after scoring pinterest for recipes, to bring this one. This recipe was so quick and easy to make and tastes even better than a real jalapeño popper. Everyone at the potluck seem to agree with me because they ate the whole thing.

Oxblood and Fur

I have recently been obsessed with fur. In the past couple of weeks, I ordered three different fur pieces from ebay (and am currently bidding on a fourth. Shame on me). This fur stole was a lucky find on the sale rack at Macy's. It was only $9. 
Oxblood is the color of the season. It is everywhere. Though I do enjoy a good trend I don't like spending too much money of styles that will be out in a few months, so I thrifted this cute skirt for only $5. Two great pieces at great prices.

Black and White

Black and white is the classic combo, like peanut butter and jelly. Loving how the combo is played out in this outfit.  With the dropping temperatures, I find my self slowly pulling down more and more cold weather gear from my closet. These boots were the result of my most recent closet pull. There is nothing like a thigh high boot, they add a touch of sexy to any outfit. Expect to see these babies again.
