winter whites coats

So you know that old rule about not being able to wear white after Labor Day?  Go ahead and forget that crap. Whites are all the rage this winter, especially in the form of coats and oversized sweaters. You guys know I’m all about adding pops of color to our dreary winter wardrobes, but a tint of white is equally as refreshing. Since freezing-temps lead many of us to spend the winters in extra layers … it’s time to step up

sensitive skin

Hey beauties, I hope this post finds you ready to unwind after a long week.  I personally can’t wait for a bubble bath, at-home-spa-sesh, + 1 spicy margarita! That being said, this post is for you if you’ve ever struggled with skin woes.  For as long as I can remember, I have had psoriasis (the worst of which is right around my scalp).  As some of you may unfortunately know, psoriasis is the WORST.  It leaves the skin super red,

SKINNY BETCH PIZZA

broccoli rabe pizza

Ah, PIZZA, what babe doesn’t love a large (… extra cheesy) slice?! I am totally with you! And, being a self-diagnosed pizza addict myself, I’m always on the hunt for some more wholesome alternatives. So like any girl would, I started Pinterest stalking some new pizza options and was inspired by Cookie + Kate’s drool-worthy broccoli rabe & pesto flatbread (topped with sliced almonds, feta cheese, + lemon juice). You can snag all the directions by visiting her fab site here. I would

Temperatures have really been dropping here in Jersey so it was clearly time to pack up and head WEST!   Arizona to be exact ;).  Not sure about all of you, but traveling tends to throw me for a loop.  The time changes, the lack of sleep, the anxiety induced over packing. I’m totally the chick that uses 50+ beauty products and can never get her suitcase under 50 lbs. Let me tell you, having back-up-outfits for the back-up-outfits gets costly. With this trip to

For us East coasters, we’re officially entering the most dreary 3 months of the year.  In my opinion, January-March (or maybe even January – Memorial Day Weekend) are a tad bit … rough.  Seasonal affective disorder is setting in, there’s no good holidays to look forward to, it’s cold AF, and many of us just want to order every meal in and not leave the house until it’s 50 degrees or higher again. Winter blues suck, I know. That’s why I think adding a pop

“My mission, should I choose to accept it, is to find peace with exactly who and what I am.  To take pride in my thoughts, my appearance, my talents, my flaws, and to stop this incessant worrying that I can’t be loved as I am,” – Anais Nin. Ah, this quote just speaks to my soul {as cheesy as that may sound} and hopefully yours too. We are just 3 short days into 2017 so I felt it was time

NEW YEAR OUTFIT

With 2016 coming to a close, we are being BOMBARDED with “New Year, New You” posts virtually all over social media.  I wanted to open my heart to each of you ladies and let you know, you don’t need to create a new you in 2017. The you that you’ve always been is more than enough. Looking back on this last year, it was filled with ups and downs on my end (can you relate?).  I wasted far too much time

new years eve outfit

Hi lovelies, I hope this post is finding you well after a very happy holiday week!  (Also hoping you were able to eat, drink and laugh to your heart’s content). Quite frankly, I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that 2016 will be over in just 5 short days.  This leads a girl with little time to decide what to wear when ringing in the New Year. Sequins + gold pretty much scream NYE to me, so you

cookie holiday baking

Babes, My beautiful mother and I have been in the kitchen baking up-a-storm this week (well, her more than me … love ya mom).  It’s safe to say I’m in a Christmas cookie coma already, but still have room for my absolute FAVORITE holiday treat … Lemon Cheesecake bars! So bangin’! That being said, these are actually super easy to make, super good, & are always a hit when gifting them out. Don’t forget to share this recipe with someone special and subscribe

Dearest vixens, CHRISTMAS WEEK IS OFFICIALLY HERE! Some of you are jumping for joy, and some of you are freaking the f*ck out ;). If you’re on the latter part of that equation, and still have like 10+ people on your Christmas list to buy crap for (not to mention limited funds to do so), I got your back. I’m all about keeping stress in your life as low as humanly possible, so I decided to put together a quick list of
