The Most Functional Decor Piece In My Home

 Happy Friday, Loves!
I wanted to share this quick post with you regarding the most functional decor piece in my home. Yes, it's my floor length mirror. I absolutely love this mirror. When we moved into our condo last year, a floor length mirror was on top of my list. I really wanted something that was both decorative and functional. It sits in my bedroom at one side of my bed and, It's severs as a functional and decorative piece. I oped for this mirror as opposed to the traditional night stand.  
Once I get dressed, I can stand alongside my bed or further back towards my closet and see my look head to toe before heading out. Another reason for me placing my mirror here was that I have excellent natural light flowing in form my bedroom window. That way, I can see clearly what I am wearing or how I look. 

I highlight my mirror by placing my bedside basket with extra blankets. It adds a nice touch of chic to the space and take away the bland look of simply placing the mirror only. This mirror also has a nice gold and cream design which compliments my bed and ties in with some of the color tone of the painting above my bed. 
I wouldn't quite call myself a minimalist but, I enjoy clean, chic, and simply look to my living space.

Here are a few options if you're thinking about getting a floor length mirror- Here, Here, Here & Here or check out services such as Havenly for amazing interior design help.

Havenly is a trusted site where you can get design help from actual professional interior designers. They will literally do all the design work and recommend products etc for your home.  

I'd love to know what decor piece you have in your home that you absolutely love or what piece is multi-functional for you. A pull out sofa sleeper, storage ottomans? Do tell. 
Thanks for reading, Loves.



The Holiday Giftspiration Guide For Everyone

The post was sponsored by PayPal. All Opinions are 100% my own. 

Hi, Loves!
I do not know about you but I am so ready for the holidays. There is so much to look forward to during this time of year. From the weather change, the foilage, the food, the sound of holiday music, laughter with friends and family. Oh, I could go on and on. My favorite thing about the holidays, is gift shopping and giving. Yes, I am an avid gift shopper and I take pride in getting most, if not all of my holiday gift shopping done early. 
With that said I figured I would share my giftspiration guide of some amazing gift options for all your loved ones, from PayPal Holiday Giftspiration Guide.  This was perfect for me as they had already handpicked some amazing items and I easily covered gifts for myself, a few friends, and some of my family members. 
I also loved that this guide isn't overwhelming because, it can be so hard sometimes when shopping online and having way too many options, especially around the holiday season. 
I got this Winter Votive Candle for my sister. We both share a love for candles and I know she will love the cinnamon mixed with clove scent. I instantly knew this was the one I was going to pick for her from the list. This also make a great gift for a coworker, a casual friend, or in-laws. You simply cannot go wrong with candles. 
If you are gifting a child a gift this holiday, I want to encourage you to gift them one of these amazing Cuddle & Kind Hand-Knit Dolls, from the PayPal Holiday Giftspiration Guide. What is so amazing is that for each of these dolls you buy, you help provide 10 meals to children in need. What a great way to gift a gift that keeps on giving. I'm actually considering getting a few more of these for all the children in my life. This Benedict The Bunny Hand-Knit Doll is not only for kids, it's also a great and fun choice for adults. 
This Stylewe Bell Sleeve Midi Dress is so glam and fabulous I had to get it for myself. The sleeves are just so beautiful and I know it will make the most fabulous statement at a few holiday parties this year. I already have at least ten invites in my email and I will sure be wearing it to a few. It's so easy to style, I can simply switch up my hair, shoes, and accessories. I already know a few of my girlfriends are going to fall in love with it. This would be a great choice for any chic female friend or family member as a gift. They will absolutely be happy with it. 
When I saw this Aldo Zeralle Hand Bag, I instantly knew this was the choice for my mom. I loved being able to make the right decisions for my closet family members. My mom is going to love this bag. It has the perfect touch of chic and fabulous. Loves, here goes my dilemma though, I wanted the bag for myself too. So, I got one for for myself. After all it is the holidays, right?!.
I also shared it with some of my girlfriends and they were so excited they plan of gifting this gorgeous bag to their friends and families too. Oh, the beauty of the holidays. 
And let's not forget the men in our lives. Our husbands, boyfriends, dads, brothers, uncles, nephews, cousins-this guide has them covered, too. These Hawes & Curtis Dress Shoes had my guy's name written all over it. My guy is very stylish and I knew he would absolutely love them. I really wanted to wrap them and put them under the tree later but he is the kind of guy who doesn't mind knowing what he is getting for Christmas. So, I asked him to get dressed on our recent date night and, to wear his new shoes so I could snap a few pictures to share with you all. They are so classy and I bet you these will last him a very long time. Go ahead and snag a pair for the man or men in your lives. No matter their style, these are great classics to gift and own. 

Loves, I hope you caught the holiday bug after reading this post and that you will be a practical and early gift shopper this year. Trust me, this will take so much stress off your shoulders and you will be able to relax and bask in the beauty of the holidays. All you have to do is simply head over to the PayPal Holiday Giftspiration Guide and select items that you know your loved ones will love. I promise you, there is an option for everyone in your life. 
And while we're in the spirit of sharing and giving, go ahead and share or send this post to your friends and family so they can also get a head start with their holiday gift shopping. Remember, sharing is caring. 
Let me know what you plan to get or what you ended up getting. 
Happy Holidays to you and your families. 



Denim Classics & The Trendiest Mules

 Hiya, Loves. 
Popping in quickly to talk about this super chic street style look and how easy it is to make your way through Fall in affordable trends, specifically, mules
I had partnered with Lee on an Instagram post and had some extra shots left over and thought I would share this look with you all. Lee is such a classic brand and I absolutely love their clothing. They are great quality and, most important, have effortless movement capability. Both Tee and Jeans are from Lee and my bag is Angela Roi.

Now, if you haven't seen mules all around social media or in person then I can safely say you don't follow or notice trends. Ain't nothing wrong with that. However, if you are looking to hop on a trend this fall I would absolutely suggest getting yourself a pair of mules. Also, do remember that when it comes to  trends, you really do not need to spend a lot. Trends come and go so you want to save your coins for more meaningful and classic pieces such as these Lee jeans I am wearing.

My mules are from Who What Wear Collection from Target. I am so obsessed with Who What Wear clothing. They are chic, affordable and absolutely trendy. They are right up my everyday shopping price point. The one thing I can tell you about these mules are that they are comfortable. I wore them while I was in New York for Fashion Week and they were a breeze. Grab yourself a pair now (they also have them in black suede) and thank me later. 
 Have a great week, Loves. 



Fashion Island's StyleweekOC With Simply Recap

Hi, Loves!
So, I have been meaning to share this post with you all for a while now. I figured I better get to it before this month ends. Last month, I had the privilege of attending Fashion Island's  StyleweekOC with Simply. I love all of Simply's events and workshops so when they asked me to sit on the home panel, it was a no brainer. 
Styleweek OC was a two day event but I only attend the second day. You can see more of what went down both days on Simply website. I made my way down to Orange County, a 1.5 hour drive my Los Angeles and checked in to Island Hotel Newport Beach. This hotel is just so fab and has the perfect touch of chic and relaxation for their guests. After a good night's rest, we began the next day for brunch at Fig and Olive. The food was absolutely delicious and filled with flavor. We enjoyed a mini runway show as we ate and mingled with old and new friends. 
Once we were done serving our palate, we made our way over to Fashion Island where the event was held. Fashion Island is a shoppers dream- everything you want to make your life utterly fabulous is there. 
The set up was absolutely beautiful and I am sure I wasn't the only one who felt they were living in a Pinterest dream. 
There were three panels; Fashion, Home, & Beauty. I sat on the home panel and we talked about home trends such as bringing outside life into your home, metallics, and furniture knobs. Oh, I so wish all of you were there. Not only was it a beautiful event but a wealth of fabulous and useful information was right at your fingertips from industry and your favorite bloggers. Audrina Partridge spoke on the Beauty Panel and Catt Sadler spoke on the Fashion Panel. 
The last hour of the day I hosted an in store sip and shop for BCBG Max Ariza and it was so much fun. I talked fashion and style with shoppers, suggested pieces I thought would be amazing on them, and exchanged smiles and positive conversation. I enjoyed every minute of it. The staff was just so amazing and I have to say a big thank you to them and BCBG Max Ariza for dressing me in this fabulous dress, nude sandals, and beautiful necklace. 
The best part, my girlfriends were visiting that weekend and I got to share this magical day with them and their husbands. I'm already looking forward to next year and you should too. Keep you eyes glue on Simply's website for all things fabulous. They're now offering online sessions so you can access all their goodness from anywhere around the world.  
I hope you guys enjoyed this post. I hope you take from it that there are plenty of events that might be happening in your city that could be of great resource for you all. Sometimes, it's just about getting out there and meeting new people. This event was attend by mostly people shopping around Fashion Island going about their day. The tickets were free and many people got to take home goodie bags. 
Have a great week.
