Halloween Giveaway

Hello and happy Friday! Can you believe this is the last day of September? I'm so excited because that means Halloween is literally one month away! Halloween is one of my favorite holidays of the year and since this is my first one as a blogger I'd like to give some stuff away. Who likes free stuff?? I know I sure do so I've decided to do a Halloween themed giveaway for all my awesome followers and readers. I'll explain how to enter at the end of this post, but first I'd like to show you exactly what I'm giving away. There are 13 things included in this giveaway which comes to around $70 worth of gifts just for you :) Yes I know 13 is such a creepy number but hello it's Halloween!!! Here's what's included in this super awesome giveaway:

1-Animated Cat
I thought this little dancing cat was too cute when I saw it and I knew I had to include it in this giveaway. It will be the perfect little decoration for your Halloween parties. 

2-Halloween Scarf
This was actually a gift I received at a party I recently went to and instead of keeping it I decided to include it in this giveaway. This will be the perfect accessory for your upcoming office party.

3-Jack-O-Lantern Bracelet
This little piece of costume jewelry is perfect for your Halloween costume or to add a little bit of festiveness to any outfit. I actually bought two of these and kept one for myself. So, if you win we will be twinsies :) 

4-Black Fuzzy Keychain
Who has yet to add one of these cuties to their purse? Everywhere I go I'm seeing women walking around with these adorable little fuzzy keychains attached to their purses. Well I decided to include one of these super popular fuzzies in this giveaway. How sweet is that? Of course I chose black because it's the perfect color for Halloween.

5-Black Cat Socks
How cute are these? I love black cats and socks so this is actually the perfect combo for me. I know you'll love to keep your feet warm in these cuties and there are two pairs!!! So basically you're getting an extra gift. How cool is that?! 

6 & 7-Jack Skellington and Sally Knee High Socks
These are the cutest socks ever! Nightmare before Christmas is probably the best Halloween cartoon I have ever seen and it has become a classic must see over the years. You get one pair of each of these adorable socks because you can never have too many pairs of socks right?! 

8-Scented Hand Soap
This bottle is so adorable and who doesn't love scented hand soap?! There are actually several different bottles at the store to choose from but I chose the cute black cat because cats are just so darn pretty. Your hands are going to smell amazing!

9 & 10-Katy Kat Lipstick and Revlon Nail Polish (both in black)
I don't really know a lot about makeup so I won't pretend to and go on and on about how awesome this lipstick is. All I know is it's from Cover Girl and Katy Perry...two of my favorites. I chose this and some nail polish in black because it's Halloween duh! LOL This will be a great finishing touch to this years costume!

11-Throw Blanket
There's nothing I love more than curling up in front of the TV after a long night with my throw blanket and slippers. While I couldn't get slippers because there are too many different sizes, I did get this adorable throw blanket. This actually represents the Day Of The Dead and not so much Halloween but it was simply too cute not to include in this giveaway and it's sooooo soft!! 

12-Coffee Mug
While you're relaxing on the couch with your throw blanket and socks you can use this awesome mug for some hot chocolate or coffee. I love the saying on the front because it totally represents me. LOL. 

13-$25 Starbucks Gift Card
This to me is the best gift of all. I don't know a single person who doesn't love Starbucks and $25 will buy you a few awesome drinks. This will be a great pick me up for those of you who will be shuffling kids from house to house for trick or treating or for those of us who will be out all night at a party :)

Top 10 Picks Of The Week

Hey everyone and happy Thursday!! I hope you're having an awesome week. Tonight is my last night of work for this week and I couldn't be more ready for the weekend. I have a hair appointment tomorrow and I'm seriously thinking of trying something a little different but I'll talk with my wonderful stylist first and see what she thinks. No one else has touched my hair since 2013 so I trust her to make the right decision :) I know it's going to turn out awesome! So, how are you enjoying this awesome fall weather we are having FINALLY? I'm so happy the temperatures have dropped enough for me to wear some of the awesome new styles I have purchased for fall. Have you been shopping for your fall wardrobe yet? If not and you're looking for some ideas you have come to the right place. For this weeks top 10 picks I went to a store that everyone knows and that I have recently fallen in love with. So, where did I go this week??

To me Target is a slight step up from Walmart because they sell very similar products and the stores are set up almost the same, but the main difference with the clothing is Target is a little higher quality and therefore more expensive. They do have amazing dressing rooms! Kudos to you Target because I have been in some horrible dressing rooms that make me want to leave and never return. They also have a great fall fashion selection! As soon as I started browsing through the racks I knew I would be leaving with more than one item. All of their clothing for fall is super cute and stylish so it was extremely difficult to choose which ones to buy. But, after an hour or so of searching and trying stuff on, I decided on the following items as this weeks top 10 picks.

The Top 10
I love these skirts. I have literally seen almost every fashion blogger I follow wearing one of these recently and I think this is the perfect skirt for fall. There are several different colors to choose from so you can pick your favorite. This would be great with leggings and ankle boots.

2-Floral lace up body suit *similar $19.99
I'm not a big fan of these. Don't get me wrong they are super cute but they are also a pain when trying to go to the bathroom. I picked this one because I thought it was extremely cute and the bell sleeves are gorgeous. I actually tried this on with the skirt and it was a super cute combo so there's a great outfit idea for fall :) This particular color and pattern is no longer available online so I linked a pretty pink one instead.

I love the color green so I snatched this top the second I saw it on the rack. These tops are really in style right now too so this top would be the perfect addition to your fall wardrobe. Pair this with a cute pair of ankle boots and jeans and it's a great outfit for a casual day out with friends.

This top is one of my favorites! I love the floral pattern and the material is super soft and stretchy so it's form fitting but not too revealing. I think this top would be perfect with a pair of skinny jeans and either ankle boots or lace up flats. This is definitely a must have fall item!

I thought this top was so cute on the hanger but I wasn't too happy with the way it looked on me. I think I have too small of a frame to pull this one off but I still think it's super cute and I love the pattern. This would look cute with some flare leg jeans and wedge booties.

This knitted cold shoulder top screams fall and is super cute. Be aware that this top is see through so you'll definitely need an undershirt with this one. I love the color and the material is perfect for fall weather. This would look great paired with skinny jeans and ankle boots.

This dress is AMAZING!! Not only is it the perfect length for a shortie like me but the material is also soft and very stretchy. This dress fit me like a glove and isn't too heavy for a slightly warmer day. I think this beauty would look great paired with some clogs or heels and maybe even some wedges. Perfect dress for fall!!

This dress is a great addition to anyone's fall wardrobe. The mock neck makes it warm so it will be great for those chilly nights and it would look great with a pair of leggings and some boots. The fit is very loose like a shift dress so keep that in mind when choosing a size. 

This dress reminds me of something you see on an old baby doll in your moms closet. I thought it was too adorable and I know someone will love it and want it in their new fall wardrobe. I didn't like the way it fit me personally because, since I have such a small frame, it looked as if I was a little kid who just raided her moms closet. LOL. I think this beauty will look perfect on someone with a larger frame and of course with a cute pair of wedge boots.

10-Red floral dress $27.99
This was the first item I grabbed upon entering the store. I love the color, the fitted waist, and the tassel ties in the front. It was the perfect fit and I know it will look great with a pair of ankle boots and tights. This style looks great on just about everyone so be sure to grab one of these cuties before they sell out.

I ended up buying two of these items for myself but I'm keeping which ones a secret until I get a chance to feature them on a blog post ;) Which one of these is your favorite? How would you style it to make an outfit? I'd love to hear from you so leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Be sure to spread the love and share this post with someone who will love these picks as much as I do. I hope you have an amazing day and happy shopping :)

Grey And Pink Cold Shoulder Top

Happy hump day!! It's hard to believe it's already Wednesday, but that's probably because I was off the first two days of the work week for jury selection. It ended up being a murder trial so I'm extremely thankful I didn't get picked to sit on the jury. I don't like having the fate of someone's life in my hands. I don't know about you but I don't want that responsibility.  It's really easy to say how you feel about certain situations or cases until you're actually there. Well all I can do now is hope and pray that the jury comes to the right decision. Ok, now that my small rant is over I'd like to talk about something fun. Since I find shopping super fun I'll tell you about an awesome top I found a few weeks back that is now on sale for less than $15!! So, what is this top and where can you snag one?

The Top 
I first saw this top at American Eagle Outfitters a few weeks back and I fell in love with it almost immediately. The beautiful colors are what grabbed my attention in the first place. It goes from a pretty grey on the top then lightens up to a light pink on the bottom. It actually reminds me of the ombre hair color that everyone was obsessed with for like a minute. The next thing I noticed was it was a cold shoulder top and I love these so much. Not only are they super popular right now, but they look so great on just about everyone. The last thing I noticed was how soft the material was. This is one of those tops you just wanna wrap yourself up in :) This top fits so well and is so comfortable I promise you won't want to take it off! Sadly this color is no longer available online so I linked a pretty wine color below. You may be able to locate this exact top at the actual store. So how did I end up styling this cutie and how can you style it differently?

My Style
This top is pretty casual and I wanted to stick to that theme so I paired this cutie with a pair of skinny jeans from Hollister and my awesome new ankle boots from Walmart. These jeans are so comfortable. I love how they are super stretchy but not overly tight. I've linked this exact pair below. And what can I say about these ankle boots??I've been searching for a great pair of black ankle boots but I had no idea I would find them at Walmart! I was so happy when I saw the price tag for these cuties was less than $20. Where else are you going to find ankle boots that cheap that actually look great and fit right? I couldn't find these exact boots online so they may only be sold in the store but I linked a very similar pair for you. I wore this outfit for a casual Sunday spent shopping with my sweetie. To change it up a bit you could wear some cute wedges or a nice pair of sandals. Also, if it gets too chilly a blue jean jacket or black moto jacket would look super cute with this top.

Isn't this top adorable? How would you style it differently? Ankle boots, wedges, or sandals? Which one would you choose? I'd love to hear from you so leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Be sure to spread the love by sharing this post with all your fashionista friends. I hope you enjoy the rest of this beautiful hump day and happy shopping :)

Must Have Monday

Happy Monday!! Did you have a good weekend? My weekend was pretty awesome but now I'm about to head off to jury duty and I couldn't be more excited! *SARCASM* Please keep your fingers crossed that I don't get picked ;) Before I get to that I'd like to help ease your Monday blues by sharing with you some really cool items that I think you simply must have. I know all five of these are now on my wish list and hopefully I'll be able to snag them soon. So, what did I find this week and where can you get your hands on this awesomeness? 

Must Haves
For this week's must have items I once again decided to browse through my Polyvore app. If you don't have this app already you really should consider downloading it. It always has the newest and hottest trends that you can mix and match to create outfits that you love and then you can even buy the items directly from the app. Pretty cool huh?! This week I found five of the cutest things that I know you'll love as much as I do. I've linked these exact items HERE for you :) 

1-Black nail polish (Topshop, $10)
2-Cat eye embellished sunglasses (Dolce & Gabbana, $1,690)
3-Pumpkin spice latte phone case (Casetify, $40)
4-Autumn leaves infinity scarf (Amazon, $17)
5-Triangle shaped clutch bag (Zaful, $30)

Since Halloween is right around the corner I thought it would be great to include some black nail polish on the must have list. I'm actually planning on getting a pedicure this Friday with some black polish and maybe a cute Halloween design :) These sunglasses are HOT! I know I included a pair like this last week but these are embellished and actually look more like butterfly shades to me. I've linked a less expensive pair HERE for less than $30 and they're leopard :) This phone case is adorable and screams Fall just like the scarf does! Infinity scarves are my favorite and this fall scarf is really adorable. I need this in my life for real! This triangle shaped clutch is too cute and really unique so I plan to get one of these soon. I love all these picks but if I had to choose my favorite I'd have to say the scarf for sure, but I may be slightly biased LOL 

Aren't these items adorable? Which one is your favorite? What new Fall item have you purchased recently? I'd love to hear from you so leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Be sure to spread the love and share this post with all your friends who would love these items. I hope you have an amazing Monday and happy shopping :)

Black And Pink Floral Shirt

Hey everyone and happy Sunday! Are you enjoying your weekend? I did a quick drive to Oklahoma and back Friday night which put me in the car for over 16 hours so I'm a little tired, but I don't have to go into work later tonight so I'll be able to get some rest later. It's a little bittersweet since I'm only off because of jury duty in the morning, but I'll take it nonetheless. LOL So, are you happy it's fall? Are you actually having fall temperatures where you live? It's still super HOT here in Texas but I'm not letting that stop me from wearing all the latest fall fashions including the one I want to share with you today. Did you check out my top 10 picks of the week from Thursday? If not you can do so HERE and if so then you've already seen this beauty. Today I want to share with you one of my picks from that shopping trip to Walmart and show you how I styled it. 

The Shirt
Out of the 10 items that I picked from Walmart for my picks of the week, this is one of the two that I ended up taking home with me. The other one will be featured in a future post. I fell in love with this beauty because of not only the gorgeous floral pattern but the lovely cut as well. I love how it's longer on the sides because it's very flattering on my figure and the lace detail with keyhole back is simply adorable. It's also short sleeved so if you're still dealing with summer like temperatures this is the perfect shirt for you. If it's already starting to get chilly then just throw on a cute jacket or cardigan to stay cozy. At less than $10 this shirt is a super deal that you should take advantage of as soon as possible. I've linked it below for you in case you want to snag it now :) So, how did I end up styling this beauty and how can you style it differently?

My Style
I wanted to look slightly dressy but still casual so I decided to wear this adorable shirt with my distressed skinny jeans from Ross and these super cute pink pointed toe flats I got from Wish. I love distressed jeans!! They are perfect for any super cute casual look and can even be dressed up just a bit. I wouldn't wear them to an overly dressy event, but for something casual then these are the way to go...for me anyway. I've linked a similar pair below for you. These flats are quickly becoming one of my favorite pairs that I own. When I first got them I wasn't too thrilled with the way they fit or looked but after breaking them in I have absolutely fallen in love with them. I've linked a similar pair of these below that are just as pretty. To dress up this outfit you can wear a cute pair of wedges instead or you could wear a pair of ankle boots to make it a little more fall friendly. When the weather cools off I'll be looking for a beautiful light pink cardigan to match this outfit but you can also wear a black one or a blue jean jacket. 

Shop This Look: Shirt / Jeans *similar / Flats *similar

Isn't this top so pretty? Is it still warm enough for you to wear this without a jacket? How would you style it differently? I'd love to hear from you so leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Be sure to spread the love and share this post with all your fashionista friends who would love this top as much as I do. I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend and happy shopping :)

My Fall Fashion Obsessions

Happy Friday everyone! Who's ready for the first weekend of fall? I'm so excited that fall is finally here even though it's still a little on the HOT side here in Texas. But, I'm already updating my fall wardrobe because I'm bound and determined not to let this heat ruin my fall this year. Even if I have to dress in layers and end up striping half of those layers off midday, I'm still going to start rocking my fall wardrobe. I love the fall season because so many of my favorite things happen during the fall...hayrides, Halloween, Thanksgiving, sweater weather (probably not until November here), and pumpkin spice drinks to name a few. Every year I have a few new obsessions that get added to the list of why I love fall so much and this year is no exception. There are 3 fall fashion items that I'm currently obsessing over actually and I can't wait to buy several of each of these in different colors and patterns of course ;) So, what new items have been added to the list this year?...

I've never been a big fan of scarves in the past, but for some reason this year I can't get enough of them. I only have 4 currently, but I have my eye on several both online and at the store. Infinity scarves are my favorite because they stay put all day and don't unwrap themselves from your neck, but the beautiful blanket scarves like the one in the picture are my current obsession. These are so beautiful and will keep you warm during the chilly nights ahead. I plan to own at least 3 of these beauties soon so be looking for them to be featured on an outfit post. LOL I paired this beautiful scarf with a pair of skinny jeans, ankle boots, and a cute sweater. I would wear this outfit on a movie date or just out and about shopping when the weather finally drops enough. You can shop this look HERE or find some similar ones HERE.

Ankle Boots
I love wearing boots in the fall and winter because they keep my feet warm and because they are super stylish. I normally wear boots that come up to my shin or higher but this year I have become obsessed with these adorable little ankle boots. I love how I can wear them with my skinny jeans and not have to tuck the jeans into the boots and I can turn around and wear them with a dress as well. I just recently bought 2 pairs of these boots, one taupe and one black, that I can't wait to wear and share with you. The ones in the picture are so adorable and I need a pair in this color next :) I paired these ankle boots with a pair of skinny jeans and a striped sweater. This is the perfect casual outfit for fall that I would wear everywhere. You can shop this look HERE or find some similar ones HERE.

Sweater Dresses
I've always had a weakness for a pretty sweater dress, but this season I'm obsessed with the long sleeve fit and flare ones. I actually have a beautiful one I bought recently in nude but it hasn't been cool enough for me to wear it. Hopefully I can wear it towards the end of November at the latest. The one in the picture is exceptionally pretty. I love the stripes and the vibrant colors which are perfect for this fall season. I paired this sweater dress with a gorgeous pair of berry tassel boots and a matching purse. I'd wear this outfit to church or on a date with my sweetie. You can shop this look HERE or find some similar ones HERE

What are you currently obsessing over for fall? Are any of these on your list? I'd love to hear from you so leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Be sure to spread the love and share this post with all your fashionista friends. I hope you have an amazing weekend and happy shopping :)

Top 10 Picks Of The Week

Hey everyone and happy first day of fall! Here in Texas it really doesn't seem like fall with the temperatures still in the 80s, but I'm excited about all the new styles and prints for the new season and I can't wait to dive right in and show you all the awesome things I'm finding out there :) For the fall and winter seasons I'll be heading back to some of the stores I visited during the spring and summer to see what new stuff they have out and to share these finds with you. To kick off the first fall edition of the Top 10 Picks Of The Week I decided to feature a store that I love and no matter what the naysayers might say I'll continue to shop at as long as the clothing remains super cute! So where did I shop at this week?

I know I just featured a super cute top from Walmart yesterday but I couldn't kick off a new season of the top 10 picks without starting with a store that I love and feature at least several times a month. I'm sure some of you are thinking that I get paid to promote Walmart or that I'm an affiliate of theirs, but neither are true. Not yet ;) I simply love clothing that is not only cute but super affordable and both are true of the clothing at Walmart. No matter what I go in there for I always come out with a buggy full of goodies and more times than not those goodies include clothing. This particular time I went into Walmart with the sole purpose of sorting through all their new fall inventory and finding a variety of the best they have to offer. There were so many items to sort through that it took about two hours, but I finally found the best of the best to share with you and here they are:

The Top 10
I love stripes for fall and anything in the color red. Also hoodies are a favorite casual item that I love to wear during the colder months. I would pair this with skinny jeans and either black boots or converse sneakers.

This has to be a signature style from Walmart because every year they have these only in whatever color is hot for that year. I picked this because I love wearing these and the neutral colors are great for this season. Skinny jeans or leggings would look great and of course a cute pair of boots. 

#3 Red peasant top *similar $9.88
This top is gorgeous! I love the color and the lace detail. The v neck and high waist make this beauty a must have. I would wear this with skinny jeans and a pair of red lace up flats.

#4 Striped sweater tunic *similar $14.88
Here's another classic Walmart sweater only this one has beautiful coloring and a striped pattern which I love. The three buckles detail adds some spice and makes this top even prettier. I'd wear this with black leggings and knee high black boots.

I know this is one appears to be leftover from summer but actually the darker coloring makes it perfect for fall. I love how it appears slightly faded and the lace detail in the back is super pretty. I'd probably wear some skinny jeans and a cute pair of flats or boots with this top.

I love pink in any shade so when I saw this top I thought it was so pretty. This style is perfect for fall and there's different colors if you want one that's more of a fall shade. I'd wear a pair of flare leg jeans and some wedges or clogs with this beauty. 

This top is super cute and i picked it because the material is really silky and very comfy. This is a great shade for my skin tone but it also comes in other colors if this one isn't for you. For this top I'd wear some skinny jeans and a cute pair of flats.

This top made the final cut because of the super cute style and how well it fits. I love the tie front and the lace detail makes this a great buy. This one also comes in a variety of colors but I chose the black one because it's a great color for fall especially if you want to wear a colorful patterned scarf. I'd wear a pair of skinny jeans and a cute pair of ankle booties with this top and I'd probably throw in a nice scarf. 

I love the color green but sadly I don't own that many green items. I saw this cutie and I not only loved the saying on the front but the tassels and the lace panels on the shoulders make this a great pick for fall. I'd most likely wear a pair of skinny jeans and some green converse sneakers with this shirt.

#10 Plaid lace up top *similar $12.88
I love this top so much! The lace up neckline and the awesome plaid print are absolutely perfect for this fall season. The colors are great as well. This top is meant to fit a little loose so adjust the size accordingly. I had to try on one size larger to make sure it fit correctly. I'd wear a dark pair of skinny jeans and a cute pair of ankle booties with this adorable top. 

All these items are great for this fall season and can be worn in many different ways to suit your style. I ended up buying two of these cuties myself but I decided to keep which ones a secret until I actually wear them :) I'll be featuring both items on later posts so be looking forward to that! Some of these items I couldn't find online so I linked a similar item from the Walmart website. So, which of these 10 items was your favorite? How would you style it? I'd love to hear from you so leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Be sure to spread the love by sharing this post with all your friends who would love some great ideas for their fall wardrobe. I hope you have an amazing first day of fall and happy shopping :)
