I absolutely love eye palettes and I definitely love Bobbi Brown.  On a normal day, I don’t really wear eye shadow.  However, on special occasions, I’m all about swiping on a shimmery shade or rocking a smokey eye.  The Warm Eye Palette from Bobbi Brown is perfect for doing just that.  I love that the colors in the palette lend themselves to being played up for a night out or subdued for a pretty day time look.

Lately, I’ve noticed that I keep wearing my same few statement necklaces.  I’ve decided it’s time to add a few new ones to the rotation.  I love The Houston Necklace from BTB Jewelry.  I actually stumbled across this site on Instagram and have been in love with their pieces since.  They have a lot of affordable items and they’re all pieces that you can style in multiple ways.  I dare you to not find something you love on this site.

So, I’ve started thinking about what to wear to Christmas and New Year’s Eve parties and I think I’ve found my outfit.  I’m a dress girl.  I love wearing dresses, no matter how cold it is outside.  Give me a pair of tights and a heavy coat, and I’m set.  I thought I’d switch it up this year.  I love the idea of wearing a fancy top with sleek black pants and a standout pair of heels or a bold clutch.  I’m loving this top from Tibi, but it’s a little pricey.  Don’t worry though, I’ll be checking their website for sales.  I also found this similar top from Wyatt on Blue Fly in a price range that will make bank accounts much happier.

Lately, I’ve been so over carrying a backpack to and from campus.  It’s bulky and not a great fashion statement, but it’s redeeming quality is its functionality.  I often find myself wishing I had a tote to throw all of my school stuff in.  Unfortunately, I don’t travel light, so I’ve yet to find a tote that has as many pockets as my backpack, but I’ve also been thinking ahead.  As a senior in college with plans to move to New York City after graduation in May, I’m thinking about a functional tote to take to work.  This one from Madewell has been on my radar for quite some time.  I love the neutral color (it’s also available in black with tan straps) and it’s easily paired with any outfit.  There’s also an option to get a gold foil or blind imprint personalization stamp on the bag, just to add an extra touch.

Have any items you think I should know about?  Share them with me!

Happy weekend and happy Thanksgiving, friends!

Also, I wanted to give a special birthday shout out and wish my cousin Gemma a happy 13th birthday!!  I hope you have a wonderful day.  Enjoy 13, love you!!
