I love the bright red color and blue tassels! They're a great shoe for the holiday's, very festive! They add such a nice pop of color to an outfit.And they're extremely comfortable too and I have no problem wearing them for long periods.
You can never have too many striped tees and this one is my favorite. It's a 3/4 length boatneck tee from Target. I particularly love this one because it's not ridiculously long. It hits perfectly just a bit below my waist. It's also super comfy so that's always a plus!
Like you've probably seen on the million and one fashion blogs these vests. They're just great pieces to have! I have 3 and wear the tar out of them. This one is a lot lighter than my other two and it's great for when the temperatures aren't super cold but you still want a little something extra.

|I love the gold charger!|
|Love the gold silveware and polka dot placemat!|
|I would use the gold painted leaf as part of the centerpiece not a name card.|
|Love the crispness of the white and gold together!|
|Instead of just the letter I would write the entire name but I love the gold foil pumpkin!|
|This is probably as close to the tablescape I have in my head. Just imagine the leaves and some pumpkins pained gold!|
|If I were making dinner this is the menu I would serve!|

|Rimmel Kate Moss No. 09 (regular finish)// e.l.f. Matte lip color in Rich Red// Rimmel Kate Moss No. 104 (matte finish)// Rimmel No. 124 'Bourdeux' (regular finish)//|
I bought all of these at Target, but you can find the Rimmel ones anywhere; Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, Ulta and the e.l.f one at Target or online. All the colors were under $5 and for the quality a steal of a deal. I'll get into that later.
This is no. 9 by Rimmel by Kate Moss. This is a gorgeous, reddish, berry color. It's a very opaque color and only takes one swipe to achieve the deep shade. It's the regular finish but I wore it as a matte and it looked absolutely gorgeous too. I will say that it is a bit drying on the lips after awhile so definitely wear a lip balm under.
Like no. 9, this is also a Rimmel by Kate Moss in no. 104. It's a pretty dusty, mauvy pink. I think this is the perfect winter pink color. I wore this while running errands today and it's a great everyday pink shade. This is the matte finish and it's also a bit drying so wear a lip balm under too.
This is Bordeaux, no. 124, by Rimmel. This is suuuch a beautiful color that pictures don't even showcase the color. This is the definition of a deep wine color, thus the name. This is from their regular lipstick line and is more of a creamy texture. The only thing I don't like is it does settle into the fine lines of the lips so wearing a lip balm is a must. I've heard that it's a dupe to MAC's 'Diva' lipstick so if you're looking for a less expensive option I'd definitely recommend checking it out!
I had been looking for that classic, bright red lipstick and I found it. This is the matte lipcolor by e.l.f and it's the most gorgeous shade of red ever! It's a fire engine red that goes on like a dream. It's not as drying as the other matte color but I still apply lip balm. I am absolutely in love with this color and it's the perfect holiday party red lip. I love the packaging too; it's a pencil form which allows for precise application.
Top to bottom: Rimmel No. 104// Rimmel No. 09// Rimmel No. 124// e.l.f. Rich Red
Here are swatches of the colors. I tried my best to get an accurate color but they might be a tad off since I'm new to the whole beauty blogging sphere.
As you can tell I love the Rimmel lipsticks and will be picking up more in the very near future. The quality doesn't seem like an under $5 quality, it feels like a high end lipstick. I love the Kate Moss collection and highly recommend checking them out if you're looking for some new colors!
Here's an article about the do's and don'ts of applying dark lip colors that I found pretty handy when wearing these shades!
So those are all my lipsticks I've been loving and wearing every chance I get! I am obsessed with them now so I'm on the hunt for more. Let me know what you're favorites are and which ones I need in my collection and would recommend! :)
Most of the companies will send you some if you just ask. I emailed them and said that I was a huge lover and supporter of their brand and wondered if they could send me some stickers so I could show off my support. They emailed back asking for my address and within a few weeks I had some sweet new stickers! With the exception of Fraternity Collection (send a self addressed letter with stamp) and Marley Lilly (free but you pay shipping) the rest will send you stickers free of charge. Most of them if you buy their products they send stickers as well.

I definitely will be doing a coffee cart in my future space. I love the idea of you're own little Starbucks corner in your kitchen, dining room or living area! There are so many ways you can decorate it too and I'm all down for decorating!
So this got me thinking if I were to have a coffee cart what would I put on it? Below are my picks for my coffee cart when I get one. And don't worry, I will be getting one. It's just another legit reason for me to decorate and buy things to decorate with. ;)

I love this look because it's dressy but still casual. One of my favorite 'tricks' to layering is staying in the same color #navyornothing and adding a pop of color to the outfit. I paired this blingy statement necklace and a red lip which pairs perfectly and adds the right amount of class and sass.

If you can't tell vests are one of my favorite pieces to layer with. They're functional and stylish and add another element to an outfit. This outfit is very casual with the striped tee, chambray shirt and vest. I'd wear this if I was running errands or even to a casual lunch date.
|Tee: J.C Penney (similar here)// Blazer: Target (similar here)// Scarf: Forever21 (Similar here , here and here)//|
This is probably the most "dressy" outfit I'd wear that involves layers. I paired a plain white tee with a black blazer and added my faaavorite blanket scarf for warmth and color. This would be a great outfit to wear to work or if you needed an excuse to wear a dressier outfit without being over the top!
