Dove #SkipAWash

There isn't always time in the mornings to hop into the shower and take my time getting ready, especially if I have a holiday party the same night! But, when I still need to get my hair looking good, dry shampoo becomes my best friend. No one wants to see greasy hair or overly dried out hair from shampooing every day, so I'm partnering with Dove and took on the Dove Hair #SkipAWash Campaign. I've had thick hair ever since I was little so drying would always take hours! I wash my hair about 3 times a week and in between those washes, Dove's Dry Shampoo is a great way to start my day after rolling out of bed.

 I love being able to just spray on the Dove Hair Dry Shampoo, shaking it in, and still getting my hair to look nice and clean. Since freshly washed hair doesn't hold too well, it's amazing for prepping my locks for some styling for an event or party. Can't wait to #SkipAWash before the NYE festivities to make sure my hair holds as best as it can and carry this routine into the new year. Happy Holidays!

Borrowing from the Boys

It's definitely been a busy past couple of days but with the Christmas gifts all wrapped and ready to go, it's time to get back to posting these outfits that are long overdue! Finding the perfect sweater dress can be really tricky. Sometimes it's too loose, too tight, too long, too short, well my problems are solved since getting an XL sweater from the mens section is literally perfection. Paired with some tights and heeled OTK boots, this is probably one of my favorite looks. Shop this outfit below!

Fossil Q Smartwatch

For some people, Holiday Shopping can be a tedious task. For me, I just love every second of it. I tend to start my Christmas list around November since I love shopping around and finding that perfect gift for my friends and family. This year, I have a new companion with me as I finish off my shopping: The Fossil Q Smartwatch. There are so many amazing features with this accessory that really helped me stay on top of things!

The watch works hand in hand with an app on my phone. Through this app, I was able to customize my settings and my notifications, what functions I wanted and needed the most. Although the watch has a classic analog design, there's so much more to it than meets the eye. I walked all around the city, had trains to catch, had too much to carry so I couldn't take out my phone, but this watch helped with all of it. Check out the features below:
- Built In Steps Tracker: Holiday Shopping made reaching my 10,000 Steps A Day Goal so easy.
- Notification Alerts: I knew if it was my boyfriend or my best friend texting me.
- Functions: Taking a picture, controlling my music, and tracking my sleep and steps.
- Versatility: I can easily swap out my band if I'm looking for a new combination for my outfit!
- Non-Charging: Perfect because I constantly forgot to charge other smartwatches... oops.

I always had a hard time dressing up smartwatches. It's almost as if I had to constantly decide on something classic or modern technology. The Q Tailor Hybrid is the perfect accessory that marries both things that I love, something that carries a timeless elegance about it, and not have to compromise how far we've come with technology. After a good couple of shopping days, I was all set for the holidays and ready to move on to the second best thing to shopping: wrapping presents!

In case you're still looking for that perfect gift for someone, perhaps they're just like me. They love a good classic timepiece but also want the perks of a smartwatch. Check out this one by Fossil here, or any of their other beautiful watches for that matter. I've got a few more presents to wrap up. Happy Holidays, everyone!

Camel and Chanel

I feel like I've been playing catch-up for the past week or so. I've been sick for the last few days and I'm certain that I can blame it on not dressing warm enough for shoots when it's cold outside. But this day wasn't one of those days. When NYC has kinder weather, it's nice being able to just leave my house in a sweater. For extra warmth, I'll wear my Uniqlo heat-tech and a cozy scarf to wrap myself up in. Though it may be too late now, I love wearing camel tones in the fall. There's something about that color and the foliage that I'll just constantly repeat. Shop this look below!

Schutz Over The Knee Boots

Central Park has always been a favorite part of the city of mine ever since I was a little girl. Years later, it still holds a special place in my heart. After dodging traffic and tourists on the concrete most days, it's nice to escape a little. For a stroll through the park, I remained stylish and comfortable in a button-down dress, oversized sweater, and my over-the-knee boots from Schutz. This pair of boots are so easy to walk in, definitely a great staple for any girl's closet. Shop this look below!
