Hello! How's the new year treating you? I've been resting and getting back into the swing of things after the holidays. I also did some shopping, catching those amazing sales happening at the end of the year. I was lucky to snatch up this beautiful yellow coat at JCrew.

 This coat was on my wishlist because price was in the hundreds. As soon as the price dropped and there was an additional 50% off, I checked at all the stores in my area to see if it was in stock. Unfortunately it wasn't. I definitely went on a mission for this coat, and in the end it paid off. I was able to order it in my size at the store and have it delivered to my house. It is my current precious! Did you guys find something you had been dreaming of on sale this past Holiday season? I'm always looking for great bargains!  It is still avaiable in sizes 8,10,12 online if you love it. Cheers with my first post of 2017!

 Wow 2016 came and went! I have to say that looking on the bright side of things made me stay strong and accomplish a few things this year. It was a hard year for me with difficult close family loses. I prefer to live in the present, and try my hardest to enjoy every moment of every day. I only speak about any difficulties in my life once I have moved past them and can share something that can help others in some way. Helping others is what drives me or motivates me on the daily. Connecting with the world is an amazing thing that I've gotten a chance to experience through blogging. Not many people get it and that's okay. For those of us that do, it's so much fun right?

Fun Fact: I wear sunglasses all the time because bright light bothers me, and I squint so much in pics if I don't. Exhibit A: Trying so hard not to squint in the picture above. :))
One thing that I have to say is THANK YOU, for those that visit frequently and follow along, some of you even a few years now. Thank you for helping me grow in more ways than you will ever know. I learn and enjoy visiting your blogs so much. It is these online relationships that put a little pep in my step when I'm feeling low and don't want to cry to one of my close friends about it. I love every minute I spend creating content for my blog to share with you all. Connecting with people all around the world is just amazing to me! It really is. Thank you all. My wishes for the new year is that we all continue to grow and support each other by sharing what ever it is that inspires us! Cheers to a new year full of hope and new adventures. 

Love Always,

Last Minute Stocking Fillers

Pinterest Inspired Pic of the Week! - Made in a Day:
With just a little more than a week until Christmas, everything is starting to stack up. There are holiday work parties to go to, nieces' piano recitals to attend, cookies to bake, presents to buy—not to mention stockings to fill. If the ever-decreasing countdown to Christmas has got you panicking about how to check "fill stockings" off your to-do list, check out this last-minute stocking stuffer ideas to jumpstart your shopping and fill those empty stockings.

It's probably unnecessary to say that almost everyone loves chocolate and candy (although it's true), but there are benefits for the buyer, too: chocolate and candy are incredibly easy to buy both in bulk (the same chocolates for multiple people) and individually (a different candy bar for each person). This stocking stuffer is a classic that just can't go wrong.
candy cane marshmallows for hot cocoa--hang them on the side of your mug!:

Gift Card
Gifts are great stocking stuffers because they're easy to personalize: an iTunes gift card for your nephew; an Amazon gift card for your aunt; a movie theater gift card for your neighbor. They're small, too, so they're perfect if you're looking for one last item but don't have the space in your stocking for something big.

On the other hand, if you need a big item to take up space in your stocking, a scarf is perfect—and also perfect for the cold winter weather outside.
yes please, Plaid Scarves:

CDs and DVDs
Digital streaming for both music and movies may be the latest trend, but not everyone uses streaming—and not everything can be streamed, anyway. Plus, it's much more exciting to pull a CD or a DVD out of your stocking than, say, a pair of socks.

 Love Actually (2003) ---A must have in any movie collection.:

On the other hand, it's a Christmas cliché for a reason: who couldn't use another pair of socks?

Like chocolate and candy, makeup is easy to find and has a wide variety of products to choose from.

If you like the idea of buying makeup but aren't sure what to buy, EOS lip balm is a great, specific item to buy: it's trendy, easy to find in stores, and available in almost every color and flavor.
For fans of those fun little lip balms from eos: Two new flavors are out, Coconut Milk (shown) and Vanilla Mint.EOS Lip Balm in Sweet Mint: Basic, non-shiny, yummy, and ideal before bedtime. Or kissing. And the spherical, bright applicator makes it easy to locate in your purse:

Earrings, necklaces, bracelets—they're good for any age and can be found at any price, making jewelry another great customizable stocking filler.
Round Agate Druzy Necklace Handmade Drusy Geode Necklace wedding party birthday jewelry DJ-1:

Card games
Not only can card games be bought for almost any age group, but they can also be played right on Christmas Day, making them a fun stocking filler for everyone.

Wishing you all the loveliest of Holidays!

Much Love,

Getting trendy with StyleWe

Black Shirt Collar Plain Simple Long Sleeve Cropped TopRed Paneled Long Sleeve Cropped Top
White Plain Simple Shirt Collar Asymmetric Cropped TopDark Green Casual Asymmetric Plain Cropped Top
Hi everyone, I have some style inspo for you all this week with StyleWe!  Have you guys been hitting the mall these past few weeks, or shopping online more than ever? I've done a combination of the two, but I have to say online has been my go to. StyleWe being an online store has a huge selection of trendy unique styles. These are some of my favorite finds.
The crop top trend is very cool  and can lengthen your torso when worn with high waisted bottoms. I'm a fan of this trend for sure. These designer tops have that modern vibe I love with unique details. What I like about them the most is the straight loose design. I am all about comfort and clothes that let you breath. Even if form fitting I like my clothes to have some wiggle room to them. So this trend is right up my alley. Do you like the crop top trend? Fan or not so much?

I also found these beautiful showstopper dresses which would be perfect to bring in the New Year or for any holiday parties you have going on. Velvet and pink are so in right now, so these really caught my eye. They look so chic! Are you loving the velvet trend lately?
 I blogged about this online store before because I found their styles versitile and so on trend as well. From designer tops to fancy dresses, I think you will find just the right thing that sparks your fancy.

Do check out StyleWe on Pinterest as well. So much style inspo there! 

Much Love,

Street Style Love

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend with friends and family. For those who celebrated Thanksgiving and traveled far to spend time with loved ones, hope it was a fun trip! I spent it with my family here in L.A. and had a wonderful time. First time we didn't eat turkey and opted to go to a restaurant. Food was great! In the morning I had to have me a slice of pumking pie :)) That just makes me so happy. Crazy how a little treat can make you feel so good. 

This is one of my favorite shoots recently because my friend and I did a wallcrawl in Downtown L.A. My friend thought this wall was perfect for this street style outfit. Most of the pieces I'm wearing are from H&M. I love the all so much. These jeans are my favorite right now, I want to buy more of them because it's not always the case that you find the perfect pair of jeans, right? They are super comfortable in the most stretchiest of fabrics. My Stan Smith Adidas I've had for almost 2 years and they are my most favorite tennies because of the leopard print detail. They are one of my precious things. lol! I have to say that street style speaks to me so much and it's what I feel the most like myself in because I am was a city kid. I spent half my childhood in the city of San Francisco where my heart still beats. 

 Here's to hoping you catch some great Black Friday deals lovelies!
