Waited till the last minute to go Holiday shopping? I’ve got you covered!

Only 7 days until Christmas!! But who’s counting?

I can’t wait to spend some time with my family with a cup of hot chocolate in hand, with a couple of gifts waiting for me under the tree (maybe??). Speaking of gifts, I still haven’t started my holiday shopping. YIKES! Lucky for me, there’s a thing called online shopping.

Here’s my top 5 sites great for those last minute shoppers like myself:

  1. ZARA – I love how you can always find something trendy that’s going to last you a few years.
  2. AMAZON – The site that where you can literally buy anything your heart desires. From phone cases to groceries – what’s next?
  3. MACY’S – Now that it’s getting a bit colder outside, what a better place to buy your loved ones a new jacket than Macy’s?
  4. BEST BUY – Nowadays, everyone’s looking for the next best electronic device out there. Whether it’s the newest iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, etc. You’ll definitely find what you’re looking for here.
  5. SEPHORA – How many times have you went into a Sephora for a mascara and came out with everything…besides what you went in for? I love how they have something for everybody. Skincare, make up, perfume; everything I love in one store!

Online shopping is one of my favorite pass time, it’s so easy and quick. Whenever I get my packages, it’s like Christmas every time. However, when you’re going online shopping, you have to stay sharp and make sure you don’t land on a bogus retail website and have your credit card information get swiped. Luckily, I found an article on LifeLock that’ll help you with that. The article shares 15 tips for safe holiday online shopping. Happy shopping and stay safe out there!

Day dreaming about Hong Kong

It’s crazy to think that I was in Hong Kong just a few weeks ago and I was wearing shorts…unreal. But nevertheless, I was loving it.

Nobody planned for this warm weather and retail stores are all rolling or sweaters and putting their summer items on sale. And that’s where I snagged this cute romper from H&M for only $15!!!

But don’t worry, I can throw on some black tights and pair it with some black booties and I’m good to go for fall. 😉

Much Love,

Glasses on fleek

You know the saying “you always want what you can’t have”? Well I basically live my life through that phrase 😂

For the past few years, I’ve been so jealous of my bf and friends that have glasses. I envy them cause they look SO cute with them and on top of that, you can go out and still look good without wearing make up. However, don’t get me wrong, I love the fact that I have 20/20 vision and I wouldn’t trade that for the world. So for now, I’ll stick with my fake glasses and live vicariously through my bf and friends.

The best part about wearing glasses is definitely picking the frame. Warby Parker is coming out with their new fall collection for their glasses and sunglasses on September 12 and it looks AMAZING. (Def gonna try and make my friends get a pair, so I can live vicariously through them). For those of you who wear glasses be sure to check out Warby’s complete eyeglass collection.  Are you someone like me who doesn’t have a need for eyeglasses? Browse through their full sunglasses selection where you can also get some stylish frames!But don’t just take my word for it, take a look at some of my FAVS from the collection below!!

HOW CUTE ARE THESE?! Let me know your thoughts below!

Stripes in the sun ☀️ 

If you’re ever in downtown Tampa and looking for a cute date idea, go to the Riverwalk. It’s such a relaxing walk and the scenery is to die for. At the end of the walk, there’s a fine arts museum that you can go to. (You have to pay for admission obviously) Also, this place is one of the best places to go watch the sunset 🌅. *fellas, you’re welcome”

Sunsets in Tampa, FL 🌴

Tampa, you have my heart ❤️. From the beautiful sunsets to Fuzzy’s Taco Shop. (Let me just tell you, if you’ve never tried Fuzzy’s – you’re not living life.) The chicken nachos is TO DIE FOR. 

Anyways, on my way to Tampa I stopped on Sunset Bridge and watched the sunset. (How ironic huh) Check it out!

RUST-ing away

RUST – my new favorite color of the season. (Honestly, who comes up with these names? Cause I’d like to get a job there) Rust is the perfect mixture of orange and red with a hint of yellow, making it a great color complimenting any skin tone. Whether you’re pale like myself or you’re blessed with tan skin, this color will be your go to this season.

I found THE perfect jumpsuit in this color, check it out & let me know your thoughts!

I’m officially 23!

About a month ago, I officially turned 23! I’m not sure how I feel about this age because according to Blink 182 – nobody likes you when you’re 23.

But I guess Blink was wrong because some of my friends came out and celebrated my special day with me. (yay friends for showing up, even though I planned this 3 days before!) For the past 2 years, I’ve been having my birthday bash in Morristown, New Jersey. If you have never been there before, think of it as a small NYC town, except on a much smaller scale. There are a few modern bars & restaurants in the center of Morristown & it’s definitely a popping place at night.

Since my birthday is in January, it’s FREEZING out at night. So on the night of my birthday bash, I went for a more comfy-chic look (I also came straight from work in the city). Most of my outfit is from the most affordable yet chic store in the world – H&M. (LOVE)

Let me know what you think about my birthday bash outfit & what is your go-to comfy chic store?

Not your average Brunch 

Ah, summertime – best time of the year for getting brunch with your girls / family / significant other. However, brunches can get pretty expensive if you go out every weekend, so here are the steps to create the BEST DIY BRUNCH DAY EVER!

First, you’ll need to create a cute & fun invite to send out to all your friends – making it super official. There are a few ways you can create that perfect invite:

  1. Check out Paperless Post for ready to send custom invite instead, making your life simple while making you look chic. My favorites on the site are: Cucumber Lemon Vodka, Mother’s Day Brunch & Pop the Bubbly.

    Cucumber Lemon Vodka Invite

    Mother’s Day Brunch Invite

    Pop The Bubbly Invite
  2. If you’re feeling EXTRA creative and want to create your own, try using Canva for an easy DIY “hand crafted” card! Just choose the “Card” template and start designing. (They also have already made cards as well)

Now that you’re all done with your invites, it’s time to send them out and wait for their RSVPs. In the meantime, you need to start preparing the menu – the main event of brunch. Here are a few of my favorite dishes:

  1. Eggs Benedict with Shortcut Hollandaise
  2. Nutella Stuffed Pancakes
  3. Cranberry French Toast with Mascarpone
  4. Twisted Sticky Caramel-Pecan Roll
  5. Tomato-Cheddar Strata with Broccoli
  6. Overnight Savory French Toast

And now onto the mimosas

  1. Watermelon Agua Fresca Mimosas
  2. Pineapple Coconut Champagne
  3. Raspberry cream mimosa
  4. Tangerine Sorbet Champagne Floats
  5. White Cranberry Mimosa 
  6. Lemonade Mimosa with Bloody Orange

Lastly, time to decorate the shiz out of your place to make it the best brunch ever. The best place to find the best decor idea is on…PINTEREST! (How basic)

Blooming pink 🌸 || OOTD


Shirt: Charlotte Russe // Pants: Mango // Shoes: Payless // Bag: Kate Spade 

These days, summer feels like spring most of the time – which I’m not complaining at all. I’m definitely enjoying the fact that I can still wear jeans and not be sweating like crazy. 

The look I have on is for my cousin’s baby shower, who I am SO excited to meet! I picked this outfit, because it’s 1. It’s Appropriate 2. It’s super cute. Pink and white is my favorite combo for any outfits, and to think I used to hate pink. The shirt has a lace pattern over it, so it adds that girly effect. The jeans are boyfriend jeans so they’re extremely comfortable but still looking cute. My shoes are the perfect height, where you’re able to get that extra boost of height but not too high where you’d be tripping all day – and really comfortable. Lastly the bag was a gift from a family friend and it just adds a pop of blue to my whole outfit. 

Much love,

Veee

White Sneaker Trend


Source: Google.com 

This white sneaker trend has been around for a while now, and I’m definitely late in the game. But, I absolutely LOVE this trend. While walking around Philly a few days ago, I saw a couple of people rocking jeans with white sneakers and I fell in love…again.

Here’s a few pairs of white sneakers that are affordable, yet trendy:

Converse sneakers, $75, net-a-porter.com

Adidas sneakers, $80,nordstrom.com

Supra sneakers, $60,suprafootwear.com

What’s YOUR favorite pair of white sneakers??

 

Much Love,
