So I just spent five days in Vegas and I had an amazing time. I attended Redken Symposium which is like a huge convention for hairstylists who love Redken! I don’t have time this weekend to write a complete post about all of my outfits and experiences {work get-together, sushi, date with a good looking man, cocktails with some of my girlfriends, I am a busy girl!}, but I will give you a little preview of one of my outfits. Enjoy!

Here’s to a weekend filled with cute outfits,spending time with friends, handsome men, and many good cocktails. Much Love- Jenny

Wear it in different ways.

Something that’s important to know when you are on a budget, is how to put outfits together using the same core pieces. If you can do that, you have a wardrobe of many possibilities! I am definitely on a budget but hate wearing the same thing twice, so I mix up my outfits using different accessories, shoes, and etc. I am very big on layering, it’s one of the reasons why I love fall so much. {Winter requires too many layers, yep I am the goldilocks of layering.)

This is a simple white dress that with the right add-ons you could wear time and time again and people would compliment you on your cool look each time!

Those are two very different looks but were a piece of cake to create. Plus, they are the perfect casual chic for a first date, concert, or just brunch with the girls! Here’s to a Tuesday filled with new looks, friends, and some good cocktails! Much Love- Jenny!

Manicure Monday.

I leave for Vegas in 5 days and am beyond excited! Today was the only day I had time to get my nails done and I have to say they are everything I hoped for! The perfect Vegas nails for me, just enough sparkle!

Here’s to a week of gorgeous nails, good friends, and for me Sin City! Much Love, Jenny!

The Four on a Thursday. { A Lovely Thursday by the way.}

I haven’t been writing much lately and that is definitely something that I want to change in 2013. I am torn about making  resolutions  because while they are made with good intentions they are usually  un-realistic {I will lose 50 pounds, meet the man of my dreams while sitting at home, and become VP of my company} and un-attainable {I will find Bigfoot and also finally ride a unicorn}. Just as an FYI those are NOT my resolutions. I do love the idea of making a New Years Promise to yourself that you will try and make real changes in your life. Mine are sort of simple and really just relate to everyday life. I want to go out and explore the cities I live near more, book a couple trips, obviously concentrate on my blog, save up my money for something substantial, bake more, spend time with my good friends as much as I can, and just look at the world with an overall positive view. That all being said I just want to share with you some of my favorite things as of lately.

 
keys

 

The Key Project! Paint the top of our keys with your favorite nail polish {I used Essie Good as Gold} and then add some different colored polka dots with a bobby pin! {Tutorial for polka dot nails is coming so keep an eye out!}

shopThe Neiman Marcus Collection at Target was a huge hit with me, I am a sucker for designer items on sale! I snapped up all of this plus a gorgeous Lela Rose dress{ that I am sure I will profile on here} and I couldn’t be happier. {From left Gold Marc Jacobs clutch, Rose Marc Jacobs clutch, Marc Jacobs scarf, Merona brown leather gloves {those were not part of the collection but I bought them the same day and I really like them}, and a Tory Burch thermos.}

photoI love this gorgeous ring my best friend L gave me for Christmas, it’s the perfect combination of chunky and sparkle! {Ring-Forever 21}

And last but not least……

photoI know I have written about Amy’s Organics Frozen Meals before but this is a new one! I am a dairy-free, gluten-free, vegetarian so finding delicious meals that are also comfort food are a little hard to come by. This version of mac n’ cheese truly takes the cake from any other that I have ever tried.

As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a lovely day! Here’s to nicer weather {I am ready for summer again}, coffee, promises, and happy news! Much Love, Jenny!

PS- I would also like to TOAST my best friend J and her hubby I, they found out today that their little Sprout is doing well! Get out the non-alcoholic Glug girl!

 

 

 

Pop the bubbly.

I am a dress girl. Always have been and always will be, dresses are like home to me. I picked up this dress at Discovery to wear on my 26th birthday in NYC and decided since my best friend J was the only other person who saw it, I could pull it out of my closet to wear again!

This dress has the perfect “looks good coming and going” vibe that I always try to find! Who doesn’t love girly accented bows and just enough skin showing? I know I do! Raise your glass to a beautiful and healthy new year, filled with many blessings and adventures! Much Love- Jenny
