A few days ago Danny and I went exploring down under the Manhattan and Brooklyn bridge. It was amazing! When you see the beautiful Jane’s Carousel on the water, it’s pure magic. It’s so odd and beautiful, I wish I was over in Dumbo more often to take a peek at it. Although I’ve been tons of time, it’s always nice to explore areas I don’t spend much time in. Afterwards, we went and got dinner at Archway Cafe. It was so yummy and while editing these photos I just wanted to eat it all over again!!

Now let’s talk about this awesome penguin sweater. I LOVE Christmas sweaters. They are adorable in my eyes. This sweater is from Jolly Sweaters and if you’re looking for a sweater for the holidays, look no more! They also have a Christmas doggie sweater that I also really love. I kept it in touch with my girly style by wearing it with a plaid skirt, a peter pan collared blouse underneath, and just black loafers. This is an easy, every day look for me!

Today is my birthday!!! I’m now 23!

Love,

Noelle

My Holiday Gift Guide

Here’s some gift ideas I’ve had this year…

 

IMG_4326

So I love giving gifts,but if you’re anything like me than you’ve only gotten half of them at this point and you need some new ideas for the others. The boyfriends parents can be a super tough one,but here are some ideas from brands that I love that might help!

 

IMG_4288

Origins Products. Who doesn’t love getting some awesome new stuff for your face and body!? I love using their face masks and lotion,but honestly I’d be thrilled to give anything they make a try. A perfect gift for a cousin, mom, sister, or any lady who likes taking care of their skin!

 

IMG_4252

Slippers and PJs. This is like the ultimate gift to me. I rarely buy myself pajamas or slippers so they are something I am thrilled when I receive. These precious slippers are from Boden and these cozy dotted Pjs’s are from Aegean Apparel.

Master and Dynamic headphones. These are so perfect for a boyfriend or a tech dad. They are AMAZING. I can’t express enough how these are the best headphones I’ve ever had. The sound is amazing. They are a bit pricey,but totally worth it.

Homestate necklace. A perfect gift for any lady in your life who loves where she is from. This state necklace I have is by Coco and Marie and it’s perfectly thin and dainty. They have every state! I really love being able to have my little state on my neck even when I live so far away. Just a nice reminder of where I’m from.

Candles. Every lady I know loves candles. Even some men I know. This one is by Aveda,but from Parlor & Parlor. 

Coin Purses. Ok, so I don’t think this is just me. I love coin purses shaped like adorable things and this heart glitter little guy is so perfect! It was only $2 from Target.  Seriously a perfect stocking stuffer.

2015 Planner. If anyone you know has a busy schedule, then they use a planner on a regular basis. I actually have 3 myself to keep my different jobs and my blog stuff separated. This red planner is from Antenna Shop and comes in so many different colors!

 

IMG_4310

Greeting Card. Lastly, if you’re on a tight budget and just need to send someone something to let them know your’e thinking of them, just do a quirky card! These are by an amazing fellow Ashkahn. I had the pleasure of meeting him recently and he is SUCH a nice guy. Plus his cards will make you laugh and whoever you send them to!

So guys there’s my 2014 gift guide! Hope it helps, if even just a little!

Love,

Noelle

This dress I’ve wanted for a year. It’s by Family Affairs and I have Instagrammed it before because I just couldn’t wait to share it with you guys! Family Affairs does this awesome thing where as we all count down till Christmas, they do a sweet little holiday treat! Which is usually a gift with purchase or an awesome discount. But you have to follow them on their Instagram here you can see all of the special treats they are doing until Christmas! This dress is their spellbound dress and it’s SO perfect for the holidays! Also it’s their treat for today so take a peek at their Instagram later to find out more!

I paired this adorable dress with my velvet heart bag that I was of course thrilled to be using. I kept it classic with these go-to heels of mine and this Miss Patina coat (it’s on sale!) that I just got in! I loooove how classic this coat is! It’s so romantic and it was perfect for just exploring Dumbo. I felt pretty glam.

Enjoy your Saturday night loves! I had a little too much fun from celebrating my dear friend Jade’s birthday a little early, so I’ll hopefully just be taking it easy!

Love,

Noelle
