Lovely Blog Award

I am so thankful for this blog because it's allowed me to meet some really incredible women. Recently, I received the Lovely Blog Award from one of these women. Richa, along with her sister Shruti, blogs at Urban Mantra. Urban Mantra is a lifestyle blog chronicling their adventures living in two different cities - Richa lives in NYC and Shruti in DC. I wanna thank them for giving me this award  - y'all should check them out for more about food, fashion, travel, reviews and more!

The rules for the nominated blogs are the following:
1) Thank the person who nominated you.
2) Add the One Lovely Blog Award to your post.
3) Share 7 things about yourself.
4) Pass the award onto 15 nominees and let them know.

So, here are 7 things about me -

  1. I learned classical Indian dances - Kathak & Bharatnatiyam - for several years, as a kid.
  2. I love paneer (Indian cottage cheese).
  3. I'm slightly obsessed with leopard print.
  4. I went through a phase where I thought sneakers were the coolest things to wear - with everything.
  5. I have a particular dislike towards satin.
  6. At some point in life - hopefully, soon - I want to be fluent in Spanish & French.
  7. I feel very strongly about Android > iOS.
And now, passing the award on, I'd like to nominate -

My Current Wish List

As a full-time grad student, I've been on a tight budget for so long! But now that I'm graduating in a few short months, I've been dreaming of shopping again! I figured what better than a wish list, to motivate me to focus on my job search, right? ;) The best thing about all the items, on this list, is that they're good year-round and work with, well, everything. Basically, they're all closet staples - yep!

Also, I'm a firm believer in "Ask and you shall receive" so, universe (and whoever else wants to know), here are the items I'm currently coveting!
Michael Kors Leather Sleeve Trench
J. Crew Classic Pavé Link Bracelet
Alexander McQueen Scalloped Modified Cat-Eye Sunglasses
Sam Edelmen Scarlett T-Strap Sandals
Burberry Haymarket Check Fabric and Smooth White Leather Watch
3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Shark Embossed Satchel
All I need now is a big, winning lottery ticket! You guys like?

10 Holiday Party Clutches

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10
As I mentioned here, I always get in trouble when I do these "What To Wear" or "What To Buy" posts because I end up wanting to buy everything for myself! I am in love with every single one of these clutches and I want every single one of them! If I absolutely HAD to pick one, though, I think I'd pick #3 - the large glitter bow is everything!

What do you guys think of these? Do you have a favorite - one of these or one of your own?

10 Holiday Party Baubles Under $50

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10
So, I have a confession to make - this year, since I'm in school full-time and not working, I didn't have a holiday party to go to. I was sad enough about that because that meant no fun holiday party dresses but, I wasn't nearly as sad until I started looking for baubles for this post. Every one of these pieces is a show stopper and the best party - they're all under $50 each! Add sparkle and glam to an LBD or any other dress!

Do you like these? Which piece is your favorite?



Holiday Party Hair Trends

It's that time of year again! With the year winding down, and the workplace becoming more empty day by day, partying is the only thing on everyone's mind. My work holiday party is this weekend and I am so excited. Over the last few years I haven't had a chance to attend any of my work holiday parties due to travel, but this year I'll finally be able to go! In an attempt to break my hairstyle rut I decided to narrow down my favorite holiday party hair looks.

OOTD: Red & Bows

What to wear to a holiday dinner(ish) when you don't have time to go shopping? You guys know, by now, that I'm a huge fan of color and sparkle and try to avoid LBDs, whenever possible. However, sometimes, you just have to let an LBD rescue you! That doesn't mean that you can't add some fun elements & colors with an LBD. This coat is one of my favorites - mostly because of the leopard lining - and it's perfect for the holidays!

Holiday Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffers Under $25

Gift shopping is always complicated because you're looking for someone else and you end up shopping for yourself! No? Just me? Well, anyways ....! When it comes to holiday shopping, I feel like the element of surprise has gone missing, especially now since the holidays have become so commercialized! We always ask our friends and family what they want or need, and they know exactly what they're getting. That's just why I love stocking stuffers. They're little trinkets and you can make them a total surprise! I've picked out some great stocking stuffers that will cover everyone on your list - all for $25 or less!
