Another year, another holiday gift guide!
Whether you are shopping for yourself (yaass treat yo'self!) a girlfriend or family member I hope this little gift guide will find you well.
All these items have been tested throughout the year and I just LOVE them!

Sometimes it's hard picking out the perfect gift for the people you love, so here's a tip... what I find to be a bit more special is buying a couple of smaller gifts that remind you of that person and bunch them up instead of buying just one expensive gift. Like how about a perfume and a spa kit for the friend who is always down for a girls night in?! You're Welcome!

Hope everyone has a happy and healthy holiday season!

This week I put up my Christmas tree and nothing gets me more in the holiday spirit! Check it out on my Instagram.
This year I put it up a little earlier than I usually do. When do you guys think is the right time to put it up?

Do you guys have any plans for Christmas, Ramadan, Chanukah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice!?
I will be in Montreal, Canada with my family and boyfriend for Christmas and I couldn't be more excited!
Any recommendations of places to visit, eat and shop?

So I'm guessing everyone has already binge watched Stranger Things?
If you haven't yet... what are you doing? Go! Watch it all! *after your done reading this blog post of course ;) 

Anyways, after finishing the second season I was really inspired by all the 80's fashion I saw on the show and when I went to Forever 21 last weekend I naturally gravitated to these vintage inspired pieces. I feel like this is a outfit that the character Nancy would wear. Do you agree? Let me know in the comments below!

This past weekend I went to Miami for the iii Points Music Festival and I had the greatest time ever! It's been a long time since I've done a big music festival for three days but this one in Miami was extra special. I got to spend it with some of the best people including my boyfriend, his family and a bunch of our friends. 

The music was amazing through out the weekend, we got to see the Gorillaz, Bonobo, the XX, and Mark Ronson to name a few favorites!

While I was packing for Miami I wanted to pack comfortable yet festival appropriate looks. Since the festival was mostly during the evening I knew I wouldn't be able to properly photograph the outfits so my boyfriend and I wandered throughout South Beach (where we staying) during the day to shoot, hang around and explore.

My visit to Tres Belle Spa

I was invited to experience Tres Belle Spa in Brooklyn by the lovely co-owner Allison where I was able to get the most amazing body massage by Jo Martinez and facial by Magda Bellanova.


Between The Lines

This Summer I have been seeing so many women on the city streets wearing mid-length dresses and I absolutely love it! I feel like it's a style that doesn't get enough credit in the Summer months and in my opinion I think this is a silhouette that is flattering on every woman. I found this dress on Ever-Pretty.com which is a website for all occasion dresses that are high-quality and all under $100.
If you are ever in the need of finding the right dress but don't want to break the bank, Ever-Pretty is your new destination.

Backless Bodycon Dress

Today I'm sharing my two favorite Backless Bodycon Dresses from Rosegal.com.
Whether it's a night out with the girls or date night, you can never go wrong with a black dress.
These 2 dresses are inexpensive and the black lace makes it a timeless staple in your closet.

Shop them here and here.

In The Navy

The color navy is is my never-fail color. I feel like it’s such a confident color. When I don’t want to wear black or white (comfort zone!) navy is a good choice for me that fits almost every occasion.

This dress by Tobi is a sexy one. The deep neckline and the cutout in the mid-riff is perfect for those summer days that you feel like showing skin. I paired this dress with my favorite espadrilles from Asos also in navy.  (similar one here.)

Follow Your Heart ♡

 I have a thing for LBD's (I mean who doesn't, really?) and this Tobi dress is perfect... Subtle yet flirty. What do you guys think? 
Shop the "Made To Be Yours" dress here now on final sale for $10!

I wore it last Saturday while being a tourist in Washing D.C.
and I couldn't help but fall in love with all the murals around the city.
I didn't get to spend to much time wandering around but that only means I'll have to go there again some day to a little more exploring!
