Holiday Glam

The holidays are my favorite time for dressing up, but even more so for getting extra glam! I’ve been feeling inspired lately to go out of my comfort zone and try a few new looks this year that include- metallic eyeliner, detailed braids, an extra high bun and a deep red lip. I’m in love with Doutzen Kroes old hollywood glamour look in this Vogue editorial. It might me my all-time favorite look- I even did something similar for my own wedding. What looks are you wanting to try this holiday season?

Napa in November

Three Floor Coat, Heidi Merrick Top, Big Star JeansAnthropologie Booties, Ray Ban Sunglasses, Bare Minerals Moxie in “Game Changer”

My husband and I were in Napa last weekend for a brief trip and I must say, it sure is beautiful this time of year. Not that it’s not always gorgeous, but the fall colors and falling leaves make it extra special. On this particular morning, we woke up early and spent two hours walking around downtown and through the quaint neighborhoods before everyone was up. Napa is one of my absolute favorite places in the world and I’m hoping to make it back over there soon!

31 Bits: Give With Glam

I am so, so thrilled to share the shoot I did with 31 Bits for their holiday collection, Give With Glam. A few months ago, I headed down to Southern California for the shoot and to meet the team in person for the first time. I was welcomed by some of the sweetest, most amazing people I have ever had the pleasure to meet. I’d been a fan of 31 Bits after discovering their recycled paper jewelry from a few other blogs last year and was ecstatic when they asked me to be a part of their Give With Glam collection. This one is extra special because it’s the first time they have used paper with glitter in it. Not only is the jewelry so beautiful and unique, but the mission and story behind 31 Bits is so special. You can read more about them here- it’s so inspiring and amazing what they’ve been able to accomplish! I highly encourage you to check out their site and new collection- the price point is really amazing and most of the pieces would be great gifts for the holidays (either for others or for yourself!)

A few of my favorite pieces from the collection are The Emerald City Necklace, The Starry Night Bangles and The Ritz Necklace!
