24 favorite looks of 2014..Looking back at what was and looking forward to growth..

It's funny looking back a year and taking the time to remember the moments..  It took me hours to gather the photo's for this post because I was continuously  distracted by the memories that came with them.

Having a blog is like having a personal timeline to your life that you share with the world.  Yet as much as you share with the world, there is an underbelly of memories, moments, and points of views that only the person who is the subject and maker of that timeline can recall.

When I find a piece that I love.. I tend to wear the heck out of it.   What's great about a great piece is that when it's great, it will work in so many different ways and aid in creating so many different types if looks.  Yep,  I just used the word great three times in the same sentence.

Last week I wore this cozy white sweater in a completely different way..

 It's that wonderful time of year again.   Holiday cheer, great food, time with family and friends, shopping and getting ready for a brand new year!   I adore this time of year when all the festive decorations go up and the city is buzzing with wish lists and so much love.

Three weeks of parties and three weeks of the age old question...

 What the heck am I going to I wear?

Everything from office parties, family gatherings and all the fun in between happens and you want to be covered for all of it.  And GUESS who makes it easy.. Ha, get it? " GUESS?"   Okay that one made me all giddy...

8 Products for Eyebrows and Eyelashes that will get you through the weekend.

Add caption
In this age of constant predictability, I thought I would take a small step towards the unpredictable and post some beauty tips on what normally is a fashion Friday.  

So here goes..

I have been paying a lot of attention to eyebrows and eyelashes lately.  Beautiful thick perfect brows are all around us,  long hefty lashes are abound and every woman does them beautifully in her own way.   Yet, not all of us were born with perfect sets of both and not all of us have time, patience or artistic skills to paint them on with precision if the foundation is not already there.

I don't know about you but I certainly was not born with thick beautiful eyebrows and I am definitely not one one of the girls that can leave the house without out the swipe of my mascara wand and look naturally perfect.  So I do what any self loving woman who needs a little help would do.. I fill in my brows and I lay on the black mascara..

With that said.. I am definitely one of those gals who still wants to look "naturally beautiful".  Translation.. I do not want big square boxes painted on as brows and I have already tried lash extensions, way too much maintenance.   Yet like practically every woman out there I have used tons and tons of products aimed at these two tiny areas of my body over the years.   So I thought I would share some of my favorites new and old that have stood the test of time.

Click through the list below for 8 of my favorite Brow fillers and Mascara's that will get you through the week and sail you right into the weekend!

Finding the perfect statement coat in this season of minimalism and pastels can be quite difficult.  Don't get me wrong.  I am a girl who is a minimalist at heart.  However..once in a while a girl wants a coat that will wow the crowd.  You want a coat that makes a bold statement but that is not kitschy.   Bright but not intrusive.  Lovable but not loud.  That's where good old fashion Leopard comes in.. Leopard never goes out of style.. it's always classic.. very chic.. and super fun.

I seem to have an affinity for cozy, chunky sweaters.. So when I came across this beauty that also doubles as a dress, which is rare because of my height, I did not hesitate.  Like not for one second.  This beauty would be mine and I make a vow to wear it at least 7 times before the new year arrives.  Buying clothes and actually wearing them.. what a concept.. Ha!

We all know that shoes are my weakness.. and if you didn't know you do now.   Up until recently I kept my shoes in all their original boxes tucked away in my closet labeled with descriptions of each shoe to make them easy to find.  In theory that is a brilliant idea.

Okay allow me to explain.

 Layers and proportions are what winter fashion is all about.. even if you aren't in the freezing cold of the East coast and Mid West.. Layers are a key ingredient to feeling prepared for the warmish days that here in LA become very cold nights..  and proportions are a key ingredient when its a bit too warm for all those layers.

This sweater which is turning out to be one of my favorites..

Vegas..also known as Sin City..  A city where people from all over the country go to let off steam, eat good food,  gamble, shop,  get loud,  get drunk and get sexy.  All those things that are seemingly bad for us rolled into one strip.  Yet amongst all the debauchery.. sitting right at the surface for all to see are the beautiful lights.   While I was in Vegas I found myself thinking  about the Vegas of the past.. the true glamour of it all.

Who ever said that white pumps were reserved for the summer never experienced a great white pump...And whoever said you can't find a great dress in less than 5 minutes at the Gap while waiting for a fresh pretzel to be cooked right before you go to a movie never did that either.  Fortunately for me I have done both.

I thought I would re-post my Mac and Cheese recipe on this Thanksgiving.. I won't be cooking it this year since my family and I  decided to go a bit non traditional and head to the Rooftop at the Montage Hotel and soak up the 80 degree L.A. sun.  

So for those of you having  a late dinner and in search of a great recipe... Enjoy..

With Thanksgiving one day away we all seem to be preparing for the day ahead of eating and being with family with a concise energy.  However you may define family.   Weather it's hanging with friends, actual blood relations or just your sweet little furry best friends you want to make sure you do it in comfort.

I like to think of Thanksgiving as the easy outfit holiday...

For us ladies and some of the guys out there our hair is a big deal.  I can imagine that most of us spend more time making sure our hair is exactly how me want it than going to the gym...  I'm willing to actually bet on it.   So discovering new salons in my city is one of my favorite past times.  Besides New York, Los Angeles is the mecca of hair.   You can find some type of hair establishment on almost every block.  From the mom and pop set ups to the big Beverly Hills establishments and I have been and loved plenty of them.. Us Angelinos take our salons very seriously..

So when a friend suggested I try out the newly opened Spoke and Weal  on West 3rd street I was more than happy to oblige.

 Am I the only person in shock that the week of Thanksgiving is upon us..?  Okay maybe that was a bit of an exaggeration. Not necessarily shock.. but I am seriously in awe of how fast a year can fly by.   Last week was filled with super cool events, brunches and brand previews.  I adore a good brand preview.. seeing what's in store for all of us for the season to come is super exciting.  Get ready guys.. next Spring is already looking amazing clothing wise...

Drinking pumpkin lattes with extra whipped cream, indulging in bitter sweet hot cocoa covered in marshmallows and living in neutral chunky knits are all mandatory for winter.. and with many areas of the country and the world going straight from summer warmth to super chilled temperatures spontaneous trips to local boutiques, malls and our favorite websites are also becoming mandatory.

Back to Co-Host Styleogue...Yay! (Video)

I'm not what would be considered a "girly girl" by any means, especially when it comes to my wardrobe.  I gravitate towards edges and strong silhouettes.  Many times for me the baggier the better.
You will most likely find  me in a silhouette that doesn't say "girly girl".. but says "womanly woman".    Allow me to explain..

6 Beautiful Bucket Bags Under $450 Bucks ♥ My Bucket List

Bucket Bags, shopping, Shopping guide, blogger, Fashion blogger, best fashion blogger, Los Angeles fashion blogger, stuff She likes, top fashion bloggers, short hair, blonde blogger, bucket bag trend, fashion trendsOne of my all time favorite trends in bags is finally back and back with a passion.  The Bucket bag.. A symbol of chic yet effortless style as of late has been hanging from the shoulders of fashionistas and the like.  I too super willingly have joined the bucket list.  (See Here)

Here's the thing about a good bucket bag.. Its big enough to fit all your stuff in.  Yet small enough to not be mistaken for an overnight bag.. Yet big enough to take overnight.. Unless you decide to sport a mini bucket.. Which I too adore.. Then you are just being awesome!

So you ask yourself the looming question.
