Warding Off The Winter Blues

I live in an area where winter lasts from October/November-ish to around May. That means bundling up, heavy boots and tons of layers. For those of you who do not live in a “winter wonderland”, you may picture it as follows….

Beautiful, right? This is an illusion.

Given our wacky temperature fluxes this is what tends to happen around this time of year. We get snow, then it melts, then some rain, then it freezes, then it melts again, another layer of snow….and after all that you end up having something more like this…

Everything feels muddy, cold, and dirty. UGH!!! This is the part I hate the most. This concoction of wintery sludge has a tendency to stick to you like glue. Forget wearing any cute shoes, those babies will be destroyed before you even get to your car.

The only thing that keeps me sane during these months is perusing spring fashions, makeup, etc. This does wonders for the winter blues and allows me to prep for spring. 😉

Since I have been wearing mostly greys and blacks to camouflage all any the sludge that gets on me, I find myself longing for colour. These outfits are super cute:

I absolutely love this look; the blue and bright green play off each other beautifully. Now, where would/could I ever wear this?? Hmmm, maybe in NYC, as I cross of the “Sex In The City Night” off my Bucket List.

And brighter colours for eyes, lips and nails…can’t wait!

Ahhh….feeling better already. 😀

What do you do to ward off the winter blues? Or for those of you that are  lucky enough to have summer all year round, what do you do to change it up?

Soft and Sexy

Along with the planning of Valentine’s décor, treats, and treasures. There is also the planning of makeup and fashion. SO MUCH FUN! 😉

Let’s all remember that just because it’s Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean it has to be reds, pinks, or purples from head to toe. I am more the soft neutral type with a splash of colour here or there.  

I think this look is gorgeous; a sultry neutral smoky eye that is stunning and romantic paired with a bold red lip.

There are so many different choices for your nails that it is hard to choose just one look. Here are a couple that caught my eye:

This one is cute but toned down just a touch so you can still be buisness appropriate.

And of course fashion. As I said before, just because it is Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean you must dress in red or have hearts plastered to your shirt. Soft and sexy is the way to go. Here are some examples:

What do you guys think? Is this your style or are you more bold?

Stick around, more fun to come. 😀


Holiday Fashion

Tis the season to dress so pretty…fa la la la laaaaaaaaaa la la la la.

All of these are much too pretty for me to wear anywhere, so for right now, I will take solace in simply gawking at them.

Oh my goodness…this dress is absolutely gorgeous! Excuse me while I drool…..

There is something so romantic, so classic, so timeless about this look, paired with the winter months equals instant love!
