Give the Gift of Finding for Under $30!!!

 

 

I just found one of the most clever items that I’ve ever seen. We all have that one person in our life that is constantly miss placing things. Maybe it’s you?! I know I’m always looking for where I left my keys or my wallet. Or maybe you just want to have extra security on one of your personal items. Well, for under $30 you can easily solve all the above!!

I have partnered up with TILE to give the gift of FINDING. – What’s TILE

TILE can be used for so many different reasons. As I mentioned above, I am the person who is always forgetting where I put my keys and my wallet. I have now attached the TILE to my key chain so this problem won’t cost me anymore time out of my day!

My boyfriend has gotten back into photography and it’s one his favorite items. When we travel we now attach TILE to the camera strap. It’s a great and easy way to track where the camera is and to make sure when it’s in our luggage, it’s not going somewhere it’s not supposed to.

It also comes in 4 different designs.

I’m in love with the “Classy” look with the gold trim.

That one is MINE! The other two will be surprises for loved one this Christmas!

                

 

How It Works:

Find lost items with your phone. If your Tile is within the 100-foot Bluetooth range, it will play a loud tune until you find it.

Can’t find your phone? Double press your Tiles to make it ring, even if it’s on silent.

Keep your tile app running in the background and it will remember the last place and time you had your item.

The Tile app connects you to the world’s largest lost-and-found community, where friends and strangers work together using the Tile app to find everything that matters.

It’s incredible how technology can help us solve the daily issues we have with misplacing items. Bluetooth technology is our friend!

How to Style a Jumpsuit for the Holiday Season with Esmara at Lidl by Heidi Klum

Tomorrow is December 1st which is MIND blowing. Time is flying by and that means less time for you to figure out what to wear to all the Holiday parties and events coming up. Luckily, I’m here to share yet again another favorite outfit of mine with you. Below I have styled one of the newest jumpsuits from Esmara by Heidi Klum!! This line will hit in Lidl stores on December 7th! One week from today.

I took a plain black jumpsuit, added the faux fur stole that is also from Esmara tied it around my shoulder to totally change the look and feel of this jumpsuit. The faux fur also comes in blush. It’s only $9.99!!

I’m all about finding staple pieces for my closet that I can easily add some flashy accessories to and be ready to go! A great thing about this jumpsuit is you can easily put on a denim jacket and rock a pair of sneakers too. Each piece of the new Let’s Celebrate collection can be worn in so many different way.

Can you believe this jumpsuit is only $14.99?!?

You can get the jumpsuit and fax fur stole for under $30!!

The second jumpsuit it sleeveless and I will be sharing that and more looks soon on the blog and on my social media. Keep your eye out on my channels and if you’re near a Lidl make sure you mark your calendar for this launch. Her items sell out so quickly! You can do an entire outfit for under $50. You can’t do that very much these days.

If you have any questions on sizing or outfit pairings, feel free to send me a message. I would be glad to help you put together a Holiday outfit. If you’re local to Manasas, VA I will be at that Lidl location December 7th when the doors open for the big reveal. Come meet me and get your Holiday outfit needs done!

This holiday season I’m spending my time shopping at Westfield Montgomery Mall! I have partnered up with them to show you some of my favorite stores and best holiday items to give.  Scroll below and let me help you find the perfect item for yourself or a loved one.

My first stop at the mall was ALDO, their sales for the holidays are great and you can’t beat their normal prices either. Their handbags are one of my favorite things about them. You can find a dupe handbag for an amazing price. I found one! Below you will see mine and how I styled it. I purchased for under $50!

Isn’t it gorgeous? I’m obsessed. Thanks Aldo for a great find!

Next stop was Stuart Weitzman – I’m in LOVE with some of their new designs. Below you’ll find my top picks I found at Westfield Montgomery!

These Overcoat Booties are to DIE for, make a true statement right?!? These are on my wish list. Dear Santa, I promise I’ve been good this year. Size 9 please and thank you.

The Decor Sneaker below comes in 4 different colors and they are SO cute. An easy way to jazz up a simple pair of jeans and t-shirt. Who needs accessories when you can have them on your sneakers!!

My third stop was at Nordstrom! It’s like heaven right now. So many gift options and they go above and beyond to help you find the perfect item. In their beauty section you can find endless possibilities. Below are some of my favorites!

The MAC counter — display is not only on point but makes you wanna buy everything!

I had to pick up this case from Sonix for my iPhone X that will be arriving soon. 

Rebecca Minkoff bags!!!! Can we talk about these details?! To die for. Their selection of handbags are unreal and stunning. A great way to add to your collection or someones.

Need Dry Bar at home?! Nordstrom has it covered!!! Whether it’s a blow dryer or an entire gift set. Bring that blowout home.

One of my favorite beauty brands has the cutest and greatest gift sets. Clinque is killing it! Nordstrom has a huge selection of their items as well as their beauty counter. 

Victoria Secret was having a killer sale and I had to make sure I stopped someone for Carl, right? haha. They also had the cutest gift sets as well. I think I’m truly a sucker for a good gift set. Their matching PJ sets are also a good idea for your girlfriends. You can have a fun sleepover and all relax in your new pjs, at least that’s something I find fun!!

My next stop was to Michael Kors! I love how Westfield has all types of stores, everything from household stores, high end department stores, to budget friendly stores as well. It’s a great one-stop shop for everything you need for Holiday shopping.

I walked into Michael Kors and was blown away by their presentation of everything. Not only was everything stunning, I wanted to try on each piece of clothing. If you’re looking for a Holiday dress, outfit or jacket, you HAVE to head to Michael Kors. Below I’ll show you what I walked away with….

This dress is GORGEOUS. I saw it, and had to bring it home. I’m wearing a size small! I’ve linked the dress HERE incase you don’t have a store near you!

I wanted to hit up every store but my last stop for the day was Kiehl’s!

They have some of my favorite lotion and skin care products. I had to make a stop to see what great gift giving ideas they had. I found the cutest Mickey Mouse themed items which also teamed up with Feed America. What’s better than buying a great gift for someone but also giving back to a great cause at the same time!

If you’re local to the DMV area – You need to stop by Westfield Montgomery Mall for all your Holiday shopping needs. You can even bring the kids by to see Santa!! One stop shop.

Instant Bedroom Upgrade – Lighting by LAMPSPLUS

 

Carl and I having been adding final touches to our Master Bedroom and one of the most important ones is….you guessed it, LIGHTING! I was thrilled when Lamps Plus wanted to get collaborate on this project with me. I’ve been looking all over for gorgeous pieces that were affordable. Honestly, I was having a hard time until I went to LampsPlus.com — No joke, I found the lamps I wanted, needed and could afford instantly. I think it took me less than 5 mins. You know how it is, when you find something you love, you just know!

This lamp is called the “Possini Euro Cadence Glass Column Table Lamp” it’s currently on sale for under $120! We put it on my dresser in our Master. It’s great because not only does it fit my style, it had a two pull chain so we can control how much lighting we need. We use this a lot at night when we just want something on in the room that isn’t too bright.

I then needed to find two lamps for our nightstands, Carl is super picky so I was nervous how this was going to go. He didn’t want anything “too girly” — Soon as I showed these to him, he loved them! Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! He’s finally understanding that I can put things together and to trust the process, haha. Anyone else in my shoes? Let’s just say — they completed our Master!!

The lamps we used for our nightstands are called Quad Stacked Crystal Table Lamps. They come in a set of two for under $130. You can’t beat finding high quality lighting for these prices.

I was so pleased with how they arrived, packaged properly and the quality of the lamps were amazing.  We will now be looking for lighting to complete our spare bedrooms and offices! Can’t wait to give you guys a complete tour.

Also! Don’t forget to head over to @lampsplus Instagram account to enter to win a $200 gift card to shop! The direct link to their account is here. All rules and regulations can be found in the link in their bio on Instagram. Good Luck!!

Let’s Celebrate the Holidays in Affordable Glam! Esmara By Heidi Klum At Lidl

*This post was sponsored by Lidl – All opinions and outfit ideas are my own 😉 

Heidi Klum is back with Esmara for Lidl and this second collection made my heart skip a beat. You add sequins, velvet, sparkles and faux fur to an affordable price tag and I’m going IN!!! I can’t get enough of this collection. I wanted to wear everything and share everything in one day with you guys. There are so many amazing pieces that I will she showcasing throughout the next month, so keep your eyes on my blog and social media channels. This collection hits Lidl locations on December 7th and will sell out quick!! You can view her first collection by clicking HERE, also search to see if their is a Lidl near you by clicking HERE.

I’m a sucker for a staple piece sweater that you can wear with jeans when out and about during the day, sweats when you’re at home relaxing or running errands and even adding a skirt for a night out on the town. Also a huge fan of when the sweater is only $14.99!! Yep, that’s right. Above you can just image how soft that sweater is, trust me– you need one!

Comes in sizes 2-12. I’m wearing a size 4.

Another favorite piece of this collection is the jumpsuit! There are two different options that she is releasing, the other one I will showcase in a later post. It’s also under $20! It’s $14.99!!!

Comes in “One Size” – I’m usually a size 4 and this fit me.

I added a fun faux fur stole as an accessory to this outfit! It comes in light pink and black. You can adjust how tight or loose you’d like it to be, you’ll see below a photo of how it ties.

I’m wearing a size 4 and is only $9.99!!

A great item to add to a plain t-shirt, dress or jumpsuit like I did. Sky is the limit for how you can use this accessory in your daily outfits.

Heidi designed some GORGEOUS camisoles! Comes in 4 different colors and even 1 velvet.

Since the weather here in Virginia has been getting chilly, I added a plain white t-shirt under mine. Add some fun accessories and you’re ready to go. I went with a black chocker to vibe into my 90’s look. Anyone else love how fashion trends are coming back? I know I do!!

Sizes 2-12. I’m wearing a size 4. Only $5.99!

She designed another 3 pairs of jeans/pants for this collection and yet again — perfect fit! I’m wearing a size 6 in these. They come in Black, black faux jean/leather look and dark denim. For only $9.99 you could get multiple pairs — I know I went back to the store and bought 2 more pairs for later. When I love something, I buy it in every color and multiples — no shame here!!

This clutch is from her first collection and is one of my favorites, I use it all the time!

I love how easy it is to take her pieces and mix -n- match them. You have total control on taking any staple piece from her collections and making it into your own fashion statement or a day to day piece for work or event! I hope you enjoyed some of my styling ideas for her new collection. I also hope to see you at the Manassas Lidl location on Dec. 7th! I will be there helping you style the new collection.

Must Have -The Essentials Eye Make-Up Palette by Clarins – Get The Perfect Holiday Look.

Getting outfits ready for the Holiday season is just one step of getting your look complete! I will be completing my glam look with the NEW Essentials Eye Makeup Palette by Clarins. I have to be honest, when I first saw this palette I was a little intimidated by the colors. I’m the woman who used to always play is safe with the colors I would use on my eyes. BUT I can now say that I am so glad to have switched it up because they have opened my eyes (pun intended) to how amazing the array of blues and silvers and how they look beautiful when on. I want to rock this look daily!!!

CLARINS never fails when it comes to any of their new releases. These 10 colors can get you through the entire Fall and Winter seasons by creating soft or bold looks! It comes with 5 sparkling shades, 1 icy diamond shade, 3 satin shades and 1 matte shade. They also include a dual-brush eyeshadow applicator which helps guide you to have expert results — something we all want!

Below you can see the palette comes with a clear guide to help you learn where to apply each color. Which is such a brilliant idea! A guide is always helpful. 

Also, if you go to their website and click “product details” it will help show you how to also create three different looks easily; Natural Eyes using colors #2 & #3, Party Eyes using colors #5, #9 & #10 and also Smokey Eyes using #3, #7 and #8. Click HERE for a link to how to create these looks.

I had so much fun playing with this palette that I called my makeup guru friend Brittany from @brilliantb_makeup to come over and play with it as well! She dived right in wanting to create this soft hue of blue and silver to go with my holiday dress. A light smokey eye that would be perfect for day or night.

We used #2 the matte Taupe Gray as a base for my lids. Mixed #3 satiny Pale Blue and #4 Light Sparkling Silver to the inner and outer corners of my eyes and also my lower lid as well. Then added a small hint of #8 satiny Sapphire Blue just above the upper lid for a soft smokey finish.

We could of easily went into a dark smokey look by adding more of #9 and #10 to the crease of my lids. I love how simple it can be to achieve a night time look by only adding one color.

Clarins has also made sure they are doing their responsibility to help make this product eco friendly. You can easily reuse this palette when you’re finished. How? Simply pull the tab up and the insert will remove itself. You can then use as a holder for some of your makeup brushes or even pencils and pens. Whatever you use it as, it’s a great way to keep using the packaging after you’re finished.

They are also partnering with PUR Projet – Since 2013 they have planted 33,801 trees!

I can truly say how I love their products and how they also care about our environment. Every little step towards a cleaner planet helps us all. Make sure to fill out the form on the bottom of their page after purchasing and receiving you palette. In the top right hand corner you will see “CODE: —-” once you enter that code, your email and full name it will plant a tree! You will also receive a confirmation and certificate via your email. — Amazing right? I think so!

In collaboration with Clarins, all opinions are my own.

Day 1 Shu Uemura Art Of Hair x Gallery Of Style Tokyorama

I was honored to travel to Tokyo with Shu Uemura Art of Hair for their Gallery Of Style Tokyorama finalist contest. I’ve been trying to figure out how to put into words this amazing experience. Can I be honest? It’s hard! Learning about Shu Uemura, meeting with the team & the finalists, exploring Tokyo was incredible. Below I will go through some of my favorite moments, products and explain a little background about the legend himself on DAY 1! Day 2 and 3 will be separate blog posts – more in depth on the Gallery Of Style completion and their designs, so keep your eye out and enjoy!!!!

Waking up this view didn’t get old. Tokyo reminds me of NYC but bigger and calmer. haha – Not kidding. I only heard one horn being blown during our entire stay. Can’t lie, I appreciated it.

Day 1: We toured the city, 100% acted like tourist and we had a blast. Below you will find our photos from the Senso-Ji Temple, Ueno Toshogu Autumn Dahlia Garden and us enjoying sukiyaki!!

The entrance to the Ueno Toshogu Autumn Dahlia Garden, one of our favorite places! It was such a gorgeous experience. Some of the dahlias were taller than me, no joke!! I wish I could of taken some with me.

Had to stop and take a stunning photo of a few Shu Uemura products! The morning we left for our day I used cleansing oil shampoo gentle radiance cleanser for normal hair and scalp and after blow drying, I added a dime size of their essence absolute nourishing protective oil. I then used my straightener and my hair stayed straight ALL day. No joke. I got so much feedback and questions when I posted on my insta-stories. It’s true. I’m officially hooked. You need to add this to your “must have” list for hair products. Trust me! Nothing worse than your hair curling or getting frizzy when you’re trying to have silky smooth hair.

We then started to walk to the Senso-Ji Temple. When we first arrived it wasn’t busy and I was able to truly just take a minute to appreciate my surroundings. I even called my grandma (3am EST) and luckily she was awake! I was able to share some of this experience with her which was a great feeling.

It’s almost like playing “Wheres Waldo?” but “Wheres Tonya?” — it was packed within 5 mins! People of all cultures and backgrounds swarmed the area, taking photos, all wanting to feel the history. Being around so much culture and history made me realize how small we each are in such a bigger picture. It’s life changing.

By now we’re all starving and sukiyaki is calling our name! Luckily, Carl and I aren’t strangers to this. Our neighbors made it for us before and we loved it. Below you can view the process and after. Yum!

Day 1 was amazing — as you can see. We had a blast enjoying Tokyo. Day 2 and 3 will be coming this week on my blog. Stay tuned for some amazing hair creations and my top 5 products!!!

Mr. Shu Uemura himself, the legend.

“Mr. Shu Uemura is recognized around the world as a true master of contemporary beauty. He took a revolutionary path to polarize the art of makeup. With an unwavering passion, he has built a global brand synonymous with artistic expression, purity and quality. In August 2007, Shu Uemura Art of Hair was launched in the United States, expanding Mr. Shu Uemura’s mastery of beauty from face to now include hair. Today, Mr. Shu Uemura’s unique vision of eastern beauty combined with the sophistication of western glamour continues to inspire professionals around the globe.”  – Shu Uemura The Art of Hair
