I Heart Glitter Guide!

Not so long ago, I signed up for an "Under Construction" GlitterGuide.com subscription that I heard about through following (and founded by) Taylor Sterling and her uber feminine and chic blog: Sterling Style

Little did I know, after the website would launch, that I would be hooked, waiting on end for the next Glitter Guide email to hit my inbox so I could check out the new blogger spots, company spots, product guides, style news and more. 

Glitter Guide is an exact representation of it's name. And it makes me giggle, click through their website frivolously, and puts me in awe with the pictures and graphics they produce. If you haven't subscribed to TheGlitterGuide.com, and are a blog following, aspiring fashionista, that loves to smile, likes looking at pretty things, and likes to narrate your pets and give them a french accent, then sign up NOW!!! (Okay, that combination just might be me...)

This morning, I danced around with my coffee after I read these two articles.

I'm totally the creepy person that's trying to snag glances into people's houses and apartments. No, not to look at THEM, but to look at the way they've decorated the place. What tickles my fancy even more is a glance into creatively infused fashion bloggers with lots of unique flare in their own clothing- that you wonder if their place looks just the same. Take a peek into Krystal from This Time Tomorrow's abode. Being a follower of Krystal's blog for awhile now, I felt like TheGlitterGuide.com hit the nail right on the head!! :)

Then, I saw today's Polyvore spot and thought... "Oh no you DI-INT, Glitter Guide!!!!!!" Oh yes. Oh yes they did. And let's just say I want to work there. Or be a groupie. Or at least take a tour? Get a high five from Eugenia?

Not being active on Polyvore for too long at this point, I have to say I'm already an intense fan. Vicki and I talk about how Polyvore is such a great platform to allow everyday girls like us, play with our most coveted brands, looks we may or may not ever don and work as a digital sound board for what we may be wearing that weekend for the birthday party on the rooftop.

What better than to get a gander into the office of Polyvore and see the powerhouse and beauty of the staff behind this awesome website/company.

Oh, Glitter Guide, I heart you!

Gift Giving Guide II

Mason Jar ______.

1. Mason Jar Lace Vase or Lantern by Michaela from Michaela Noelle Designs.

Lace anything is fun, especially for the girl who loves fresh flowers (or even some year round fake ones!) Throw a tea light inside, and it automatically turns into a lamp. 

2. Mason Jar Cookie Mix by the Emmaline Bride Team at Emmaline Bride. 

Who doesn't love cookies, and let me tell you, I got this as a favor from a bridal shower and it saved me a trip to the grocery store (and the indecisive toll I take at what recipe to follow) when I had guests over the week after :) Choose cute colored cookie embellishments and you're set to go! This DIY also includes a link to free printable labels from Bakerella!

3. Mason Jar Snow Globe. Here's one WITH water by Bree from The Creative Mama , and one WITHOUT by Arielle from A Beautiful Journey. 

Such a unique, and creatively opportune gift! You can keep it holiday-esque, or add in items that pertain to each specific gift receiver, like hello kitty figurine, or a little tea pot and tea cup set, etc. One of these DIY's includes a gift card, but I think I'd be most excited about the presentation of the package, than the actual gift card. Just sayin' ;)

A Cute Cell Phone Case!

I don't know about you, but picking up and snapping on a new cell phone case feels (almost) like getting a brand new phone. Shiny, scratch-less, and donning a new color, your cell phone case is also a chance to showcase your style! Lucky for us, cell phone cases are well priced, especially when you buy them off amazon.com!

Glitter Toms!

First of all, they're glitter-tastic and are perfect to sport for the Holidays and throughout the year. (Perhaps along with a comfortable NYE outfit?) Plus, as most of you know, they will donate a pair of shoes to a child in need, preventing disease, and injuries, while providing a brighter future.

Happy Gift Giving & Stay out of trouble in the Black Friday MADNESS!

P.S. Did anyone see the multiple incredibly acrobatic Spiderman Broadway performance during the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade? Hilarious :)

Oh, I wish, I wish!

So, if you could imagine, I deliberated quite a bit over what I wanted to include on my wish list this year. 

Are you kidding? This was so easy to make, it wasn't even funny. 

Haha, call it a girl's biggest weakness but with Pinterest, Polyvore, and well my good ol' fashion red notebook, I pretty much have a solid list of items I'm constantly pining for. 

1. Canon EOS Rebel T3i. Call me an amateur, but for my first DSLR, I'd like to start simple. I'd love to take my pictures to the next level, because let's face it, my iPhone isn't going to cut it forever!

2. High Waist & Wide Leg Jeans. Tuck in a flowy blouse or don a cute crop top, then throw on a pair of cork wedges and you're set for any type of day. 

3. Mindy Kaling's "Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And other concerns)". Mindy's character on the Office itself makes me want to read her book. Whether she's the annoying, cheerleader-puppy to Ryan, or that she's a creative, and witty actress who probably says a lot of funny things in her head, I'm sold.  Reading and laughing out loud is the best!

4. Chinese Laundry's Mix Tape. Yes, I have a Groupon for CL. Yes, I said I was going to buy boots. No, I haven't bought them yet. And, yes, I want to change my mind and get these booties. Then wear the booties with my pleather leggings and a blazer...to the grocery store.

5. Asos Leopard Clutch. Really, I just want a case for my iPad. The idea of my iPad fitting so snug in a leather envelope that also happens to be a leopard clutch, makes me giggle. And want to get into bed with my cable knit cardigan on. 

6. Warby Parker's Tenley Prescription Glasses. I mentioned in my recent post that my glasses aren't as cute as I'd like them to be. I think Fall and Winter would be a great time to upgrade, and give my eyeballs a break with this contact lens business. Now if Warby Parker would just contact my optometrist to get my prescription, and also pardon any expiration dates, that would be great!

7. Gibson Tweed Riding Jacket. Such a classic, worth the splurge, "I will wear it forever unless I get really fat" type of purchase. I want so badly to throw on a pair of jeans, a white-t, this jacket and some boots. And call it an responsible, adult day. 

What are you wishing for this Christmas? :)

I am Thankful For...

Inspired by IFB Project #22 and the nearing Thanksgiving Holiday, I put together a little somethin' somethin' of what I'm thankful for this year.

1. C.O. Bigelow Mentha Balm. Lip gloss that freshens breath, gives your lips a minty tingle and a smooth finish. I live by this stuff.

2. Fake Eyelashes. Are an Asian girl's best friend. Most of  us have itty bitty ones. Oops, did I just give away our secret?

3.  iPhone. I'd like to say I am independent of my iPhone, but in reality, I'm not. It's a true life-style device. I'm not sure if I can get down the street without it.

4. Glasses. Though mine are definitely not as cute as these, I couldn't live without my glasses. I'm a full time contact lens wearer, but by the end of the day, I can't wait to take them off.

5. Gold Chain Bracelet. I love these; to wear by itself, to layer and to spruce up a casual outfit.

6. Mint Green Nail Polish. Mint green really is my pick me up color. Looks amazing on my skin tone (and any at that) and works for any season.

7. A Chunky Knit Sweater. Oh come on, I'm a sucker for these. I'll sleep in one, I swear. Really, I will!

8. Jeggings. Jean leggings? What woman could ask for more? Butt hugging AND comfortable!

9. Comfortable Wedges. I love wedges. So easy on the feet, and easy on the eyes.

10. Benefit Spot Concealer- Boi-ing. Covers up blemishes and feels minimal. Dust some powder over and you're done. Mission accomplished.  

Okay, no really. This is what I'm truly thankful for this year.

My relationship with God, and his infinite blessings, especially through hard times.
My heroes, my Mom and my Dad, the most influential, compassionate and hard working people in my 
My BFF and friends. The girls that have been there through thick and thin, rise and fall, tears and laughter. 
And Snoopy. The most compassionate, loyal and loving little creature in my life. 

What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving? :)

Happy Thanksgiving, Friends!
