Remember when I told you that I had some awesome giveaways lined up for you? Well, today I have just that-  Your chance to win a Lo & Sons bag…of your choice! If your not familiar with their site (which you probably already are) they have amazing quality bags that are not only durable, but simple & stylish. They range from over night bags to laptop bags to DSLR camera bags. I’m carrying the OG bag in army green, but here is how you can enter to win your own:

Visit Lo & Sons and leave a comment along with your email letting me know which bag you would want to win! You can also get an additional entry by liking them on Facebook.

This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only and bags that are still in stock. The winner will be selected at random next Friday, December 16th.


Shirt J. Crew (on sale)/ Sweater via Chloe Rose/ Jacket J. Crew (old, similar here)/ Jeans c/o James Jeans/ Boots Franco Sarto (old, similar here and here)/ Gloves H&M/ Lipstick NYX “Amsterdam”

Head on over to The Everygirl where I joined 5 other really stylish girls in putting together 6 Looks to Get You Through Every Festive Fete. I put together the look for “Christmas Day” and chose to wear something casual and comfy, but still a little festive- exactly what I’m planning on wearing!

Also, might I add that J. Crew is currently having 25% orders of $150+ and 30% orders of $250+ with code: GIFTNOW. Looks like some holiday shopping needs to get done… like this, this, this and this (for Thomas!)

Everyday Makeup

BareMinerals Stroke of Light in “Neutral/Tan”/ BareMinerals Original Foundation in “Medium Beige”/ Chanel Bronzer in “Terre Epice”/ Bobbi Brown Blush in “Peony”/ MAC Eyeliner in “Coffee”/ NYX Lip Cream in “Amsterdam”/ Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in “Raspberry Pie”/ Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss in “Petal”/ Giorgio Armani Mascara

My current beauty routine is pretty consistent and filled with the basics. You can usually find me makeup-free during the week since I work from home and it’s pointless to put makeup on, but when I do- this is it! Once I find a beauty product I love, I stick with it for a long time. Some of these items are new to my routine (the concealer and mascara) while I have been using others for years.

You can also check out my daily skincare routine, where I share all of the products I use before applying makeup. A clean face and moisturizer is the key to the best makeup results!
