Once again, the air is crisp, the leaves are turning colors, and the night falls sooner.  Who doesn’t love the fall season?!  The scent of the autumn breeze brings me back to fifth grade.  Growing up, always around this time of the year, my mom took us back-to-school shopping for supplies and clothes.  It seems just like yesterday, a couple pairs of pants,
 4-5 tops, a new jacket and 2-3 pairs of shoes.  Life was so simple as a kid.
  In this post I wanted to share my favorite go-to fall look this year. Ok well, every year!!

      When I think of my Fall wardrobe, I see dark bold colors, long sleeves and pants, layering pieces, and comfortable, warm garments.  It’s the season where I can leave my hair down, instead of my summer ponytails and buns.  In this photo, I paired LIVE A GREAT STORY's gray tank top with a bold red flannel shirt by Adam Levine and some dark blue skinny jeans from Forever21.  I finished the look with some strappy black sandals.  I absolutely love this look. It’s comfortable but somehow it makes me feel somewhat put together.



          Brown is my favorite Fall color! It’s my ultimate go-to color when picking out clothes, shoes, purses and even nail polish during this season.  Here, I switch out the red flannel shirt with a brown corduroy shirt by J.CREW.  This is a more neutral, toned down look. 
It's something I typically wear to run errands around town
 or to get some work done at a coffee shop. 


This heather gray Live A Great Story tank top is super comfy and is a great piece 
to include when layering.  Now, since it doesn’t get too cold, where I live, 
compared to other parts of the world during this season, I can wear this tank with 
almost anything.  Even shorts! Lol!!



Live A Great Story is a San Diego based apparel 
company that was launched in 2014 by Zach Horvath.  
He is very much involved with the community,
 by encouraging and inspiring others with his shirts.  
Live A Great Story can be found everywhere. Sharing, supporting
 and instilling inspiration in people to keep growing, 
be positive and most of all really live a great story.  
I love this quote that is branded on his line of tanks and t-shirts.  
It’s something I strive to live by everyday.  
It’s a reminder to live life to the fullest, carpe diem. 
         Hope you guys enjoyed my very simple and cozy Fall go-to outfits!

I am so excited to share these charming makeup travel palettes from Alcone at Home with you all!  Alcone at Home has various makeup palettes to help organize your makeup, and they come in handy assorted shapes and sizes.  However,  this travel palette has been the one I have been gravitating to more often.

 These compact and sleek-looking palettes are fabulous and very suitable for travel, especially for a weekend getaway.  It fits perfectly into your purse or makeup bag. This palette can easily carry any 3 pans of Alcone at Home's eyeshadows, lipsticks, or concealers.  I recently traveled to Arizona for a weekend, and this palette was just amazing.  I had taken along with me Alcone at Home's Perfect Eyeshadows in the colors, #2, #5, and #6.  These are neutral and very pigmented gorgeous colors.  Quintessential for my trip.

The palette has a long mirror and comes with a dual-ended brush.  One side can be used for eyeshadows and the other side is a lip brush.  You can easily switch out the makeup pans you carry inside and is safely held in place by a super durable magnetic closure.

 These approximately 4.75 inches(length) x 2.6 inches(width) travel palettes come in 7 stylish and chic patterns.  Each design has its own character.  It impels me to collect them all!

     December is the month of many parties for the holidays.  I know it can get pretty hectic with invitations from friends, families and co-workers.  I especially don't have any time 
or extra money to get my nails done this month, with all the shopping
 I need to do for Christmas presents.  
     Last month, I received the Kiss Gradation Polishes Set complimentary from
 Influenster to try out.  It says on the packaging "3 Easy Steps".   
This set comes with 3 monochromatic polishes that you can
 apply to create an ombre look with a splash of glitter. 

 On the Kiss USA website they offer four shades: 
Film Noir, Exposure, Big Break and Freeze Frame.
  The set I have is the Film Noir, which all the polishes are 
in the "Shades of Gray" family…lol!
Here is a step-by-step demo of how I applied it on my nails:

     First and foremost, I recommend to apply a base coat on your nails before layering all these colors.  This will help the colors stand out and last longer,
 as well as protecting your nails from getting stained.  
              I already applied a base coat.

The instructions on the back of the box are easy to read and simple to follow.

STEP 1- Apply two coats of Step1 polish, let it dry.

This formula has lots of shimmer and applies on nice and smoothly.

Here is Step 1 completed.

Step 2 - Apply one coat of Step2 polish on tip of nail only; approximately 1/3 of nail.
   Step2 polish is a darker shade of gray with shimmers in it.  
The look is starting to come together. 

STEP 3- Before Step2 polish is dry, apply one coat of Step3 polish on top of 1/2 of nail to blend colors.  Let it dry completely. 

      Step3 polish is another shade of gray with tons of glitter and sparkles in it.
 This color will help blend the first two colors together. 

 And tada!! Here is the final look:

  I just love how these polishes created this fancy ombre look on my nails, and with hardly much to it!  This set is completely easy to use and is inexpensive.  Prices can range from $5.99-$6.97 at your local Wal-Mart or Target.  This look lasted just about 6 days for me before I had to take off the polish and redo my nails.  

I highly recommend this remarkable set!  It is an exceptional addition to my nail polish collection.  I cannot wait to try out the other colors!  I know I will be using this quite frequently throughout this very social winter season.  

I have also filmed and uploaded a video demo using this kit on
 my You Tube Channel. Check it out here!

Glam Meet Up at Emma Jane with San Diego Style Bloggers

Last Friday, November 15, 2013, I attended a San Diego Style Bloggers event at the Emma Jane boutique in La Jolla, California.  This event was a Glam Meet Up for San Diego bloggers and vloggers to come together for an evening of beauty, fashion, networking and, of course, food and drinks.

     When I first walked in, my eyes widened with excitement! The French-chic ambiance was just so alluring.  I felt like this was every girly-girl's dreamland, or at least could be my dreamland.  ;)  Everywhere I glanced, there was a charming display of all things beautiful.

Food & Drinks were provided by companies Voila and Beaming.

       Entrepreneurs, Jenn & Jess, are the admirable owners of Emma Jane
 Jewelry, scarves, handbags, perfumes, and 
sophisticated, yet, daily wearable pieces can be found throughout the shop.  

Jenn & Jess showcases and supports local San Diego designers.  Featured at this Glam event, 
was La Jolla based company, Love Tatum Jewelry

I easily wanted everything in the shop! Bloggers had a fun time shopping and 
looking at unique pieces all around.

Kristine, keautyizskindeep, is carrying a beautiful mustard yellow handbag from the boutique.  
I had the lovely pleasure of meeting Co-Founder of SD Style Bloggers, Paulina of Lil Bits of Chic.

Next time you are in the La Jolla or Mission Hills area, stop by Emma Jane. You are surely to be captivated. I absolutely was, and did bring home a little piece of the dreamland with me. =) 

My new handbag from Emma Jane.

Thank you SD Style Bloggers & Emma Jane for this amazing event!
