Thanksgiving Eve with Bobbi Brown

 Happy Thanksgiving Eve, everybody! I'm so happy to have had a short work week and I finished it off using strictly my Bobbi Brown Caviar and Oyster Pallet. This pallet is divine, and the colors blend and mix beautifully together.

Winter Wonderland

It's not technically Winter yet, but it sure does feel like it outside. Metro Detroit received it's first official snow fall with a grand total of 2 whole inches (which I heard will probably melt away through the weekend). 
Although I've lived in Michigan my entire life, I still hate every minute of this weather during these months, and I take keeping warm very seriously. 

When I bundle up, I bundle up. Scarf, hate, mittens, CHECK.  My new asymmetrical coat from French Connection is 60% wool and is fairly long, so it's doing a great job of keeping me warm. But on days when that's not enough I throw on this fur scarf and bobble hat for extra coziness.

First snow fall

Today we had our first snow fall! I couldn't believe it when I stepped out on the porch at 6 o'clock this morning and there were flurries in the air.  It was at that moment that I realized I had better dress extra snuggly.

Wednesday Winter Wonders

Winter is upon us, whether we want to admit it or not, and with temperatures dropping, skin and hair care is most important. 

When the weather gets brisk and the temperatures become frigid my skin dries out like crazy, so I try to take extra precautions before it it starts to crack and flake. The worst area for me, is my hands. I work in an office, so my hands touch paper all day long, which completely sucks out any ounce of moisture. 
It doesn't matter how much water I drink, I need to use as much moisturizer as possible to keep my skin looking soft and youthful. 

But when I put on moisturizer this time of year, I like to go for something seasonal that smells extra yummy. Ulta has an amazing selection of holiday goodies right now in their hygiene department, and I've been indulging in all their great deals. 

This moisturizing lotion smells divine, (and the packaging is cute too!), I've tried it already, even though Thanksgiving hasn't even arrived yet, and it does a great job. The formula is not too greasy, and it soaks into your skin in no time.

The best of the vest!

Who loves a good vest? This girl right here; and I've been searching for a good one for what seems like forever. I fell out of love with vests for a while after the Old Navy phase in middle school (Remember these????), but now that I'm older I'm kind of loving them again and I can appreciate them in a different way.
It all started when I  found this bad boy. It called my name from across the store like a scene from a movie. Our eyes met and I just knew it was meant to be. We were soul mates. 

Though, I should have known, considering I always fall for Vince Camuto pieces. This was the only one like it, and it happened to be in my size. I didn't see it on the Vince Camuto website, but you can find it on Amazon. I got it for half the price though!

Weekend OOTD.

This past weekend was absolutely gorgeous so I spent Sunday out shopping with a friend.
I needed a bit of retail therapy after a long week at work, and we ended up doing some damage at some of my favorite places to find some great deals.

I hope everybody had a wonderful Halloween on Friday. I've discovered that since I've been in my mid twenties, Halloween doesn't really do it for me anymore like it did when I was a teenager; but I can still play along.
