Pop of Red

It’s been quite some time, but I am back! The chaos of getting ready for my freshman year of college has finally settled and now I am just shopping for some dorm necessities. I took some time out to travel to Asbury Park, New Jersey (about a half hour south of me) to take some pictures and enjoy good food. I’ve talked about Porta before on here but in case you missed it, it’s a trendy, Italian hotspot for shore loving New Jerseyans. Click here for my last post at Porta.

This time around I took some pictures with one of my best friends, headed to Porta for lunch and then indulged in delicious vegan ice cream at a shop called Cookman Creamery.

My outfit I wanted to keep really, really simple. I wanted the outfit to revolve around the bright red mules. You can get them here for only $21. I am obsessed with them because they’re not only super affordable but they make any simple outfit pop. I stuck with classic, silver accessories to match the metal around the pockets of my white skirt. My top is a simple, plunging, grey body suit and again, super affordable. Outfit details are below!

 

Grey Bodysuit: Boohoo (now $6)

White Skirt: Lucky Clover 

Necklaces: Gifted

Rings: Alex & Ani

December Favorites!

Happy New Year! Here is a bunch of products and clothing items I’ve been loving in December. It hasn’t been the chilliest of December’s for New Jersey but I am waiting any second now for a blizzard.

Every Christmas my Aunt and Uncle get me perfume and every year they pick out the absolute best scents. I tend to like stronger, harsher scents. I hate floral, girly scents so this one is just perfect! This one by Calvin Klein will definitely be a staple for more dressy occasions.

This by far one of my favorite Christmas gifts. It is the cutest, coziest pullover and I love it. I can’t help but feel like a big teddy bear while wearing it. It’s from Southern Shirt, unfortunately right now it is out of stock.

I was in desperate need of casual shoes I could slip on with just about anything. Fortunately, I found these Steve Madden slip ons in grey!

My favorite lip products this month are the Nivea Recovery chapstick and the Maybelline 015 Born With It lipstick. The Nivea chapstick has been essential during these cold months. So that my lips don’t get chapped overnight, I apply this right before bed. It is the best chapstick I’ve used to date, plus has the benefits of SPF. The Maybelline lipstick I apply before school or before going out. It’s a neutral shade that I usually add gloss over, for a natural pinkish tone.

My final favorite for the month of December is the new Naked Urban Decay Smoky palette. I’ve been loving the shimmery golds but also have been appreciating the warmer, darker tones for the winter time. I recommend having a good primer underneath so the shadows have something to stick to, they’re not creamy. My one negative comment is that there is a lot of drop out that falls under your eyes. When using this product I recommend doing your eyes first so any drop out you can clean with a makeup wipe after.
