Eloise at Christmastime

I am a city child… although I don’t live at the Plaza. However, one of my favorite little fictional munchkins does. If you don’t know who she is, her name is Eloise and she’s six years old. She lives in the heart of NYC with her Nanny, dog “Weenie” and pet turtle “Skipperdee.” One can only dream of such a fabulous life at such a young age!

Inspired by the book series turned movie, Eloise at Christmastime (2003), here are a few looks to recreate this holiday season. Choose any of the below and you will look, as Eloise would say, rawther amazing.

Both (Option)- Tights

Striped Pink Pajama Set- Victoria's Secret
1. Fireside Long Jane Pajama
2. The Cotton Mayfair Pajama
3. The Afterhours Satin Pajama

“I always say what’s in my mind. It makes everything so much easier.”

Freakin' Weekend

Happiness is having too many of your family members crammed into a small space but they're all making the best of it, stealing each others' seats, laughing uncontrollably at corny jokes and hugging each other randomly, dancing the night away, forgetting the troubles of yesterday...

Happy Weekend!

Etsy Etsy Etsy baby!

A woman can have too clothes but too many accessories? Nahhhh! Not in my opinion anyway! Accessories allow you to reinvent your style with the clothing you've had forever. And one of my favorite places to shop for unique and awesome accessories is at Etsy. There is a plethora of merchandise to choose from. Virtually anything and everything you can think of! If you haven't already, check them out! Etsy

I purchased a few gifts for loved ones this year's Christmas from Etsy. I can’t divulge what I bought just yet but I will say I am 1000% satisfied with my purchases!
Hand stamped, crafted jewelry and other gifts. Completely customizable! 

Although this shop is currently out of stock, I am satisfied with my purchase. 
Handmade personalized engraved cutting boards and wallets. 

Thank you!

Cry me a river- Selena Gomez looked amazing on the carpet and during her performance, which was stellar.

 Black Bombshells- Nicki Minaj, Charli XCX, Fergie & Lucy Hale.

 Age ain’t nothing but a number- I dream of looking like Jennifer Lopez and Kate Beckinsale when I’m their age. Is that rude to say?

 White Hot- Although Gigi Hadid’s sleeves were too long and Jessie J’s pants were not short enough, I loved that they ditched the dress and donned tailored suits in crisps colors.

Too cool for you- Wyclef Jean & Neyo.

 Pretty Princess- Jhene Aiko (when she presented as well- tulle skirt & top)

 Cute as a button- Bailee Madison

Other mentionable artists- Iggy Azalea, sweeping the Rap/Hip Hop categories
Sam Smith wins Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artist
One Direction- Artist of the Year &
Katy Perry wins Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist & Favorite Adult Contemporary
Beyonce Favorite Soul/R&B Female Artist & Favorite Soul/R&B Album
Frozen- Favorite Soundtrack


None of the images are mine. All are from various sources.

Being a fashion school grad, I know a thing or two about what's worth splurging on and what's not- trendy pieces fall into the "not" category. One day they're in, the next they'll be out and you'll be stuck with an expensive article of clothing you'll probably never wear again. That's why I love finding fashion at a bargain, especially on trend pieces.

Here are a couple of dupes for the on-a-budget-fashionista.

Turtleneck sweater by Tory Burch. Rianna Tunic, $695.00
Similar one brought to you by H&M Jacquard-Knit Turtleneck, $49.95

Statement Necklace Rhinestone Statement Necklace, $19.90 Forever21

 Multi-Stone Floral Necklace, $69.00
Shop on ladies.

Don’t anyone freak out but, I don’t really like Halloween. I’m a wuss when it comes to spooky/scary things and the entire holiday gives me the heebeegeebees (spelling?) fact being is as Lorde puts it I live “in a torn-up town, no postcode envy.” Translation- Halloweens in New York City aren't exactly the safest.
BUT if I could be anyone for Halloween this year, I'd be Selena. No, not Gomez- Selena Quintanilla.
She was my very first celebrity idol. At age 4, I was too young to comprehend why she was murdered. By age 6, I understood the concept of death and I remember watching the Selena movie (you know, with J-Lo) bawling, asking my parents "WHYYYYY?!" and hating the murderer with every fiber of my chunky 6 year old being (I'm slightly over it now).

Like the picture below shows, Selena was more than a wonderful singer (I still get choked up when belting out "Dreaming of You"). She was, and still is, a fashion icon (I wore my hair like her, still do at times)- even though she doesn't get the credit she deserves.

 As for a costume, I'd go with her signature red lips defined brows, flowing hair & either an all black outfit or white and black number that accentuate my curves. OR a white fitted top, jeans and booties number with a leather jacket thrown over the ensemble.

Rest in peace beauty queen.
