Delicious Holiday Must Haves

Holiday shopping season is officially here! And in celebration, I put together a little list of holiday must haves on Pinterest including studded belts, pretty palettes and of course some of my favorite fragrances from dkny. Happy Holiday Shopping.

thanksgiving { beauty }

November 18, 2013

with Thanksgiving right around the corner, who says you can’t also prep your beauty look? today we are showing you two beautiful looks that would be perfect for your Thanksgiving dinner.

Our first look keeps it simple with a pop of color coming from a beautiful matte red lip. We love this simple, but not at all boring, look. Bonus? a matte lip will stay through first and second courses of dinner, so you won’t have to worry about needing to reapply.

Shop this look here:

Our second look is a very classic look with the focus being on a light smoky brown eye. Compliment the eye with a beautiful peachy pink gloss and you are easily the prettiest girl at the table.

My Chanel Secret… Rice and Beans Vintage

November 14, 2013

She’s here. The newest member of my little Chanel family has arrived.
 I have a Chanel secret that I am reluctantly sharing with you today because I know you’ll buy it all up on me, but it’s too good not to share the love.
{ GASP! }
I’m in love. I found her at an online shop called Rice & Beans Vintage. The owner has been a client of mine for a number of years now (I told you, no one has better clients) so I have been stalking the site for some time now. Their selection is always well-curated, which helps when seeking out the  perfect designer bag, and what I like most about it is that they have a layaway option for those who know the importance of an investment piece but don’t want to wipe out your bank account when taking the plunge.
Honestly, that’s amazing. Read that again slowly and process it.
There. I’ve spilled my chanel secret. 
Visit, Rice and Beans Vintage but promise to leave some goods for me.
But by the way, it gets just a little bit better, because they are offering my readers 15% off their entire site by entering the code DALLAS during checkout. I mean, that’s 15% off your next chanel bag just by dropping my name. you can thank me later.

picking fabrics

November 12, 2013

Prepping the living room for a fun shoot, which leaves me just a few weeks to make some big design decisions. I’m working with a really amazing company in Wayne, PA called Aubusson Home to make it all happen quickly (Peggy and Loretta = you are design magicians). Can’t decide which fabric, can you please weigh in???
