When I was 8 there was a terrible storm, one of the strong oak trees in my neighbor’s front yard fell on their house. When I found out the tree had to be cut down I was staunchly against it. So I wrote a petition to not cut down the tree. As a stubborn 8 year old I was out to save the trees with this tree being my first. I remember going around the neighborhood and trying to convince my neighbors not to cut down the tree and to sign my petition. Although in retrospect I understand that this tree was probably a liability and could have endangered my neighbor's family (hindsight is 20/20). Unsurprisingly only a teenager signed my petition and probably my mom.

I got the chance to work with Love You, a new online clothing line based in Dallas. I am obsessed with their turtlenecks (100% cotton too!). They have just released collection one and their second collection will be dropping soon! I'm also really excited to announce my collaboration with the fabulous Alex Klem.

For me gloves have always been about making a style statement. Since I got the coat of my dreams I had been on a search for a matching pair of  gloves. When I spotted this burgundy pair on SheIn I didn't think I could get more excited. It was love at first sight. I knew right away this pair was the match made in heaven for my coat.

Perfume is so personal. It's not just a fragrance or a scent. It becomes an extension of you. A form of identity, personality, and empowerment.

When DEFINEME reached out to me to test out their DEFINEME Girls Night set I eagerly accepted. Especially once I  learned how passionate the company is about empowering women. DEFINEME is amazing, they donate $1 for every bottle sold to 'She's the first', a non-profit that provides education scholarships for girls in low-income countries.

Moreover, these fragrances are so unique, bendable, and vegan! Every bottle is a personality that speak to a different woman. I think the brand is so cool because it strives to support  and  empower confident, strong, free-spirited, loving, passionate, and fearless women. What's not to support?

Right before I finished off my final exams last semester I splurged and did some damage at Sephora. Although I did the majority of my spending on friends I picked out a few deluxe samples as my splurge and treated myself to some new items. Let's review!

My love affair with this coat began when I visited Anthropologie (where most of my problems begin). I eyed a camel coat with ruby fur, tried it on, and instantly fell in love.

 December's Sephora Play theme was, "The partygoers." I found this funny because the first half of my December was studying for finals, working on group projects, scouring the library for textbooks, working, and taking finals. Although that all seems so far away as I've been on winter break, enjoying every peaceful lazy moment and Real Housewives rerun.

Winter break has given me ample time to review last month's box- let's dive in!

Hi friends! New year, new layout, and a favorite outfit to share!

2016 was full of new experiences. Revisits to favorite places like NYC/VA, so many concerts, new clothes, new books, and new challenges like interning at Anthropologie and finishing my senior year of college.
