Basic Neutrals!

Hey friends! Hope you had a great weekend and are super excited for this week...Thanksgiving and Black Friday! I usually don't splurge but there are a couple things I'm hoping I can find on sale...silly things....a rug, the roku 3, workout clothing, Dyson vacuum....seriously....really boring adult things. Oh the joys of growing up when really all I want to do is max out my credit card at Nordstrom! :)
Anyways, just a quick little post sharing an outfit from the weekend! Lots of layers and warmth because the sun in Denver was crazy deceitful! It was super chilly! I still feel like a faux fur vest is a staple through the winter months...it's a stylish piece that keeps you cozy! Anyways, hope you like it! Enjoy!

Pinks and Greys!

Hey guys!! Just a quick little post sharing a little outfit from yesterday....layering lots of stuff to try and stay cozy while still remaining a little stylish! I'm not going to lie...I am super jealous of bloggers who live in warmer climates right now...I am really not looking forward to another winter of freezing my butt off to get a great picture of my outfit that lies underneath my huge warm parka! This scarf is definitely more spring appropriate but I think I've paired it with some good pieces that make is more winter friendly! :)
 Hope you like the look! Enjoy!

Simple!

Hey guys! Just a quick little post, I had about 10 minutes for photos this morning so it was a little rushed but I wanted to share an outfit with you while it wasn't totally freezing out! This outfit isn't anything crazy exciting but it is definitely my staple, go-to winter look! Leggings, body-con dress, over sized sweater, thick knee-high socks and boots and a scarf! I seem to always go to a black and white scheme in the winter so I try and make sure I have some pop of color somewhere! Accessories are always the easy way too add in some color...bags, scarfs, hats and gloves! Lets face it winter months can be dark and dreary so you may as well add a beam of color and light where you can! Hope you like it! Enjoy!

Fight the Flu!

Hey guys! I really wanted to have some outfit posts up this week but we're in winter wonderland here in Denver, it's been so cold and snowing for the last couple days and I've been hibernating inside! So I'm hoping I'll have some outfit posts up for you soon!

Anyways, I've spent the last two weeks fighting off the flu...it was annoying because I was taking care of myself really well so it never got really bad but it also seemed to drag on forever! 
Regardless I am finally back 100% and wanted to share with you some of my tips for fighting the common cold/flu! Please be aware that I am of course not a doctor but these are tips that help me!
Once a year I seem to get one of those pesky cold/flu that are viral that going to a doctor never does anything for because they always say just rest and fluids...so I gave up one going to a doctor whenever I felt that coming on because I was tired of hearing the same thing.
Also, when I fight a flu I don't usually use things that are pain killers alone that just cover up the "I feel terribles" and started reaching for more homepathic remedies that would help my body battle it off!
So here are some of my tips:

1). For the everyday: I take vitamin C and echinacea capsules everyday, even when I'm not sick! I also take B12, biotin and a good multivitamin!

2). When I start feeling something coming on I reach for zinc tablets, lozenges, zicam (or the non brand name version of zicam) and emergen-c!

3). When I start feeling aches and pains, I usually quit my exercise routine right away and start letting my body rest!

4). Drinks lots of fluids! I drink tons of hot tea and ginger ale (ginger ale probably doesn't help but it's always my go-to when I'm sick)

5). Odds and ends I take when I'm sick: Boiron Oscillococcinum (buy this at Whole Foods, it's super cheap there), Honey Lemon Ricola, Ibuprofen and Umcka!

6). For a sore throat: Try sucking on raw garlic for as long as you can handle it or what really works for me is a 50/50 mix of apple cider vinegar and warm water and gargling with it!

7). Make this flu fighting tea (it tastes great too): 

Make this Garlic and Onion soup:

Hope this helps you fight off any flu bugs this season!! Enjoy!

Khalessi, Daenerys Targaryen!

Hey everyone! Just a quick little post to share my Halloween costume this year! I nerded out super hard and decided to dress as Daenerys Targaryen, Khaleesi, Mother of Dragons from Game of Thrones. This was a show I was so against watching for whatever reason and then once I started with the Pilot, I was addicted, I am totally obsessed with the show. 
The costume was a lot of work and really went into production once I found the dragons... I knew I could make it happen. It was the most money I've ever put into a costume and was pretty happy with the results! It wasn't very comfortable...trust me, having a plastic dragon glued to your shoulder and digging into your wig is pretty annoying! Ah well, it all worked out and was totally worth it! Hope you like it! Enjoy!

Aviva Dresses!

Hey guys!! So, I'm working with Aviva to share with you some of my favorite pieces from their newest prom dress line! Needless to say, I was super excited to be in touch with them as I adore cocktail dresses more than anything! If I could dress up in sparkly gowns everyday, I totally would! I don't think I ever quite grew out of that "I want to dress like a princess" phase!


The thing I absolutely love about all of the dresses under the Aviva name is that between all of their short and long styles all of them are great for so many formal occasions aside from just Prom! Their wedding dress collection is amazing too! I've been debating having a second dress for our wedding...something cute and comfy for the "dance party" because lets face it....I love to dance and have really been debating ordering a second dress form this company specifically for this purpose!
I love a good cocktail dress as they are the most versatile! Even when covered in sequins it is super easy to pair with tights, flights and a blazer for a more dressed down occasion! Check out more of their cocktail dresses right here:


Long gowns, let's face it...when else do you feel more glamorous than in a floor length gown?! Check out more of theirs right here:


And for your big day!? Check out their white dresses right here:


Here are a couple of my person favorites! Hope you love them as much as I do and definitely don't forget about Aviva the next time you are in need of a glamorous gown! Enjoy!
