over the break :)


I hope you all had a great long weekend, we sure did :) It was so great to take a little break from studying and sleep in, eat some delicious food, play football AND basketball for like three hours! (talk about being sore the next day, lol) OK, so I never play football, it's just not my game, but this time I did and I scored something called a touchdown, haha, thanks cuzs for making me feel like a star for a little bit. But even in all my football playing glory, I know I didn't look as cute as our youngest player ;) 

Can  I just say, even though I love Thanksgiving, I am so happy that it is finally "legal" to celebrate Christmas! Yes, we did. We got our Christmas tree as soon as we possibly could and it still makes me as happy as I was when I was little and we only had a tree branch as our tree :)


 I try to keep the lights on at all times, or at least when I am at home :)

Have a fabulous week!


ps. i think i am going to do 12 dates of Christmas this year (again!) are any of  you doing it? If so, what are some fun dates to go on? 



have a happy holiday!


the dressings ♥


1. bracelet  2. snood   3. dress  4. lip stain   5. tights   6. boots  {the boots cost $60, but I got the same pair at Ross for $17! good luck ;) }

Thanksgiving is tomorrow, so I thought I'll brainstorm some ideas of what to wear to go hang with the fam! What I'm going to wear is going to be super comfy and fit to disguise the two helping of mashed potatoes and grandmas homemade rolls, cute enough to hang out with my girl cousins and modest enough to carry around and chase little babies ;) 

I hope you are all enjoying this long weekend with your favorite people and yummy food. Thank you all for following, commenting, sending me messages and posting on your own blogs. You all inspire me to be a better blogger, and most importantly a better person.

They are seriously the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made :)

most worn: fall ♥


well, fall is definitely over in this part of the country (UT!) so here's the most worn fall things list ♥ enjoy ♥

Most worn fragrances ♥
Dream Angels Heavenly by Victoria Secret, this one is just a body spray but it smells nice and it lingers for a couple of hours. I like it because I can reapply it during the day just to have some new fresh smell ♥

This is the only Chanel anything that I own. I got it for my birthday this year and I absolutely love it. I only wear it for special occasions because I wouldn't be able to buy it for myself, but every time I wear it, it just makes me feel really fancy ♥

Most worn foundation ♥
This one is not really a foundation, its a BB cream. If you don't know: a BB cream is a tinted moisturizer, that is also anti-aging, priming, brightening cream. I would't say this one is a true BB cream, but i love it. It's more of a tinted and texturizing moisturizer. It's really light and it leaves my skin soft and velvety. It doesn't provide a lot of coverage, so if you need to cover something you would have to do it separately. It comes out as a white cream with little grains in it and when you blend it in, it gives a little bit of color, but mostly to even out your natural skin tone. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a really natural look ♥

Most worn blush ♥
I've had this one for a very long time. I feel like I use it and then I find something else, but I always go back to this one and this fall I've been really liking it. It matches my complexion and looks really natural ♥ 

Most worn mascara ♥
Ok, so I have long lashes already, but for some reason I always get attracted to mascaras that make them look even longer. This one is truly a winner! It makes your lashes way longer than they are and it doesn't look too fake. It's not the kind of mascara that makes your lashes look really soft and touchable though. It's just really glam and fancy ♥

Most worn eye shadows ♥
The most worn eye shadows of the fall are L’Oreals HiP Studio Secrets metallic shadow in Gilded and NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Iced Mocha. These are definitely fall staples. The gold shadow makes your eyes really pop. I have brown eyes, so I'm not sure what kind of effect it would have on other colors, but I wear it to dress up kinds of events. The NYX shadow is a really great investment for anyone in a rush, it's super quick to put on and it looks awesome ♥

Most worn lip product ♥
Revlon Color Burst Lip butter in Strawberry Shortcake is the softest "lipstick" I've ever used. Okay, so it's not really a lipstick, it's more of a really tinted lip balm. They have them in all sorts of colors, this pink one is my favorite though. It makes your lips super soft and moisturized, which lately my lips really have needed ♥

 Most "worn"/used skin care ♥
I'm not sure why, but at the beginning of this fall my skin just had a super dry and painful episode. This has never happened to me before, I normally have normal to oily skin and never really had to use extra moisturizer. The only saving and relief that I got was when I started using Simple moisturizer. It's really light and helps with oil, I would think that a moisturizer would do the opposite but this one just helps it keep under control, it's really the best moisturizer I have ever used. Also, when I had really dry skin, it would flake and make my face look really rough. I have yet to find any better exfoliating product than the Apricot scrub. Both of them are really inexpensive and work great together. 

Most worn accessories ♥
My pearl bracelets from H&M have been a go to accessory this season. I just feel like they pull the outfits together and add a nice classy look. ♥ My flower stud earrings from Lauren Conrad collection at Kohl's have also been used for almost any occasion  I'm not the biggest fan of dangly earrings for myself, but I do like to wear something and these are just cute and subtle enough for everyday. ♥ With the weather changing, my zebra scarf has kept me warm on many mornings and dressed up many simple and quick outfits for school. Plus, it always gets compliments ♥

Most worn bag ♥
This is my school bag, it is the most worn and used because I am in school the whole week. This is it's third year in school and it still looks like new (it had a worn out look from the beginning ;) We can do it bag! ♥ 

Most worn shoes ♥
These are the best (and the most expensive) shoes I have ever owned! I am in love with them! So comfortable, cute with pretty much anything. I can wear them all day without my feet getting tired. They are soft leather, I can wear them laced up all the way or laced half way. They're kind of tough, but lady like at the same time. Steve Madden nailed it and got the absolute perfection this time. My favorites ♥  p.s. i almost wrote most worn out shoes, which would fit these because i wear them a lot :)

What are your fall favorites? With the seasons changing, what keeps you warm and dressed up? 
Have a great week,
