My apologies for the lack of posts; I got really sick and I became super sidetracked with everything. Things were put on hold and all I did was rest, eat chicken noodle soup, and have a Parks and Recreation marathon on Netflix. But now, I'm slowly getting back into the rhythm of things as I'm feeling 10x better than I did just a week ago. 

The weather is absolutely gorgeous here; today we experienced 80+ degrees..and it's October! With such warm temperature, I couldn't help but wear a floral skirt and pair them with my favorite pair of strappy sandals. While I'm soaking up the sun, my family and friends are in NYC going through the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. I do hope that everyone on the East Coast is okay and that everyone stays safe. My heart goes out to those whose homes were damaged.

October Beauty & Skincare Haul

(EOS limited edition Alice in Wonderland 3-pack lip balm collection, Burt's Bees rosewater & glycerin toner, Benefit Feelin' Cheeky! Mini Set, Christian Dior Diorific Lipstick (038 Diva), Korres Lip Butter Collection, Origins Let it Glow Set, Origins Night-A-Mins Renewal Cream, yummy bath bombs)

Soo...this month, I went a little crazy with beauty and skincare products.

 I thought this was a fun post to blog about because normally I don't buy this many beauty products, but for some reason, I couldn't help myself. Maybe it's because I'm a sucker for cute packaging or maybe it's because retail shops are gearing up for the holidays and are now carrying value gift sets. All I know is that most of these items were impulsive purchases, while only a few were actually on my shopping list. 

I've still yet to try all these products out, but I can tell you one thing: I can't wait to try them all! 

What are some of your favorite beauty & skincare products? Are you a sucker for cute packaging too? Share your thoughts; I'd love to hear them!

old treasure

Top: F21 | Skirt: Urban Outfitters (Old) | Bag: Bally (vintage) | Pumps: Urban Outfitters (old)| Necklaces: Madefabulous

Burgundy has always been one of my favorite colors; it's timeless, classy, and absolutely perfect for the fall. I haven't worn this skirt in ages, mainly because I forgot I had it but I'm really glad I stumbled upon it in my closet. I can't get enough of the subtle pleat detailing of the skirt and I just love how it goes so well with neutrals.

feelin' floral

Kimono: Vintage (available here) | Turban: F21 | Bag: Vintage (available here) | Shorts: Bongo (vintage) | Necklace: Minimalist Gold Geometric Chain Necklace by Madefabulous  | Boots: Nine West (old)

While my closet is still packed with tanks and sundresses, I'm soo ready for oversized sweaters, chunky knit scarves, and skinny jeans! Thankfully, for the past few days, the weather has cooled down significantly; I can finally start wearing boots again! 

I threw on this floral kimono, which I absolutely love for its unique rose pattern with glittery gold detailing. Because the kimono was somewhat dressy, I toned it down by wearing a plain white tank and kept my accessories minimal. 

Oh, and if you're ever having a pretty bad hair day, throw on a turban because it seriously does wonders! I wore this gorgeous wine-colored knit turban today because my bangs were just not cooperating with me and to my amazement, it actually added a bit more character to this particular look. 

What do you do when you're having a bad hair day? I'd love to hear some of your tips!

roaming free

Dress: TJ Maxx | Bag: Vintage Coach | Belt: Vintage | Necklace: Hamsa Necklace by Madefabulous (similar here

Seriously in love with this dress! The stunning horse all-over print caught my attention and I knew I just had to get it. Also, I'm really digging the button detailing as it adds a bit of a more girly, feminine flair. I paired the dress with a vintage braided belt to make the dress pop.

It's still pretty hot where I live, so I decided to wear this today to a community sale near my neighborhood. Surprisingly, the sale was a lot better than I expected. I found a lot of nice, little vintage trinkets for the home and even scored myself a pair of vintage Escada shoes. Absolute love!

Trying to get back into blogging (again), but this time, I feel more committed than ever. So far, I've been having a pretty busy October ; kind of all over the place. Been working on some fun, new projects and I'm really excited about them!
