Fashionable eBay Shopping

This holiday season, I was able to find most of the gifts for my friends and love ones via eBay. I remember when I first started using eBay it was a great place to find little nick nacks, electronics and items that were discontinued. Now eBay has turned into a versatile online shopping mall where you can also get your fashion fix. With online shopping becoming the new wave it's great to have a new edition to the online fashion community. My favorite thing about shopping on eBay is the ability to find some unique styles as well as popular items that sold out at your go to stores. The best thing is 81% of merchandise sold on eBay is new & 88% are buy it now (Yes NO bidding wars lol). As someone who has been shopping on eBay regularly for over a decade, I've always appreciated their reliability, money back guarantee & price match guarantee, so after I got my gifts out the way I decided to treat myself with a leopard jacket, cause sometimes you need to treat yourself too lol.

For this look I  paired the leopard jacket with my fav boyfriend jeans and a classic button down shirt, to tone down the loudness of the jacket. I threw on my favorite patent leather booties, my go to hat of the season & I was on my way. Below I've added some great leopard jacket finds on eBay along with outfit details. Are you guys digging the leopard coat craze? comment below!

Shower Time Fresh : Olay Moisture Ribbons Plus

So as you guys may have noticed, I've been focusing on skincare a lot lately. Living on the east coast (New York City) is severly harsh on your skin during the winter months. I've discussed moisturizers, scrubs but one of the key elements in protecting your skin is what you're using during shower time. Using the wrong soap/bodywash can actually dry out your skin instead of locking in the moisture.  What I've been using during shower time, which I've found extremely helpful is Olay's Moisture Ribbons Plus body wash. This body wash consists of shea butter which is a key ingredient when looking for something moisturizing. My two fav scents are the Lavender Oil which mixes Shea butter with essential lavender oil, it smells heavenly yet fresh and the Manuka Honey which is Shea butter & Manuka honey. I found both to have a rich lather which wraps your skin in moisture, smelled amazing but not that harsh fragrance kind of scent. My skin felt very smooth & moisturized before I even put my lotion on, which is an absolute plus in my book. The best thing about these body washes is the value you get  18fl oz size bottle for $5.99, I've typically paid more for my products so this was definitely a major score for me. If you're looking for a new bath product for winter I suggest you take the winter skin challenge & give these products a try & If you have tried these products I would love to hear what your thoughts are, comment below!

What's On Your Head?

So hat season is upon us & I couldn't be more excited. From wool fedoras to berets to caps i'm loving it all. While temperatures drop & winds get heavier there is nothing more helpful than throwing on a hat. I live in NY where we deal with absurd weather conditions, so styling my hair gets nearly impossible during the winter months. Having a stylish hat definitely keeps me presentable yet chic, when bad hair days roll around. I've rounded up a few of my favorite for you guys, I hope you love them as much as I do.

1. This Faux leather cap from Zara is one of my favs. Great to throw on when you want to be a bit more dressed up.

2. Everyone needs a beret in their life...I mean EVERYONE lol. I love this cheap & chic one from Forever 21

3. Sailor hats took over the season but the details on this version by Lack of Color is unmatched 

4. Oookkkk Can we say #GOALS this gorgeous fedora from Gucci is so darn fab...Need I say more?

5. Beanies & winter go hand & hand, I love this fun quirky rendition by Jocelyn fur. 


Skincare Chronicles: L'Occitane Shea Butter Collection

As much as I love fashion, sometimes I like to switch gears a bit. Today I want to touch on my favorite accessory which is my skin. For me taking care of my skin is more important than the clothes that I wear. I try to take care of my skin by drinking lots of water, exfoliation, and moisturizing. With it getting colder now, it was important for me to switch my routine for the upcoming winter months. Shea butter and my skin go hand and hand, I always try to use products which contain shea butter as an ingredient. Shea butter is made from shea tree nuts, and is rich in vitamin A, E, F & fatty acids which are extremely nourishing & moistirzing on the skin.


Let's Talk Plaid

Unless you've been living under a rock lol, I'm sure you've noticed that the trend for fall is Plaid. Plaid pants, skirts, jackets and blazers have taken over the fall season. Before I jump on a trend, I always think of how I can do it "my way". I chose a plaid boyfriend blazer from H&M, because I knew it would give me versatility & I could style a number of ways.

For this look I decided I wanted to do something different than what I kept seeing online, which was pairing the blazer with boyfriend jeans. Although I do plan on wearing that look and probably quite often, I wanted to come out the box a little bit. I paired my blazer with a patent leather skirt & a Rock band T-shirt (The Who) to add some fun to it. Plaid can come across a bit serious depending on how styled so, it was important for me to style it in a way that would still capture my fun, edgy style.

The mix of the plaid and rock T was already a lot, so I decided to keep accessories to a minimum with this look. To finish it off I added a pair of Celine Sunnies from Smartbuyglasses (you always need a pair of killer sunnies) & patent leather booties from Windsor. My ankle still hasn't fully recovered but despite the height these boots are actually very comfortable. Below I've included outfit details as well on my favorite Plaid finds. How are you guys rocking the plaid style? Comment below!
