Give Monday the cold shoulder with me!

Mondays done right are Mondays you can conquer with a smile on your face

A Monday you can give the “cold shoulder” to.

Because a day of the week can’t “tell” you what kind of day to have.

Neither can anyone.

You are in FULL control of your mood and of your day, today and everyday.


And as I am typing this, don’t think for a minute I’m not also lecturing myself

I need this pep talk as much as anyone else.



 Since this Monday was a beautiful one here in Boston..

You might have decided to attack it with that cold-shoulder dress you thought you wouldn’t see again for a while



I mean, you only live once!

Am I, right? 😉

And life is all in the details…


This cold-shoulder maxi dress got just the right amount of details to make you fall deadly in love.

CLICK HERE to see more 🙂


Nature has always had a place in my heart

It’s my drug

I know I always say it. But is there anything more beautiful and peaceful?

Nature leaves me as breathless as anytime I look up to see the moon

There is something so comforting knowing that there are still so many things science can’t explain

I mean, look in the mirror. You’re one of them.


So if Monday is the day you dread the most

Start something new today, and do something that turns it around

Whether it’s taking a walk to a beautiful lake

Or listening to your favorite podcast before you head out to work.

Make it a point to make the most out of everyday by doing something you love


Life is beautiful

But it’s up to you to see the beauty in everything and everyone.

Happy Monday beauties and Happy Shopping!

Let’s get risky!

Have you ever just felt like being a bad ass biotch?

Someone that gave zero f’s?

Clearly, I am not that person because I can’t write a swear word without feeling weird about it


However, getting risky sometimes is SO GOOD FOR YOUR SOUL!

It EXCITES you and almost gives you this new edge you’ve been craving


Alright, so now promise not to judge

Because RISKS are called risks for a reason

SPECIALLY, when it comes to fashion 😉

So, I’ve been kind of dying to try the “high slit” dress that every Hollywood star has successfully pulled off

Key word: successfully

And so I went ahead and gave the high slit a shot

I mean, what’s the harm if it’s THIS PRICE?

The worst that could happen is I don’t look like Angelina Jolie with it on, right?


And this is what happened…


My face seriously can’t hide anything, EVER!

I don’t want to “trash” on this style because I still love it on others

It MAY just be THIS specific dress, and THIS specific size that didn’t go well with my measurements, my size, my style.

You just never know, sometimes!

Women tend to be so hard on themselves when something that’s “supposed” to look good, doesn’t.

I am so guilty of that, just ask my friends!

But we need to remind ourselves that not everything will look the way it does on the cover of a magazine

We are not photo-shopped, we are REAL. And we should be PROUD of that!



I just felt like I couldn’t walk without showing off WAY TOO MUCH of EVERYTHANG with this on x)

So I was a bit disappointed

SammyDress is however, one of my favorite online stores for dresses, coats, shirts, etc…

So I was really hoping to wear this on my birthday

But that won’t be happening anymore, which is ok!

This is my first not-so-great experience with them.

Plus, the shipping was 3 days or less which is also fantastic!

And again, for THAT price- you can never be that disappointment.


This is supposed to be a club dress

Which my club days are officially over outside of maybe 5 days out of the year

I will say though- If you wear this to the beach over a bathing suit- you can ROCK it

What happens in Vegas or Miami is a lot of times more acceptable than what happens in Boston


So there you have it!

Or get this baby to sex it up at the beach on your next “bae-cation”

Style is what you make of it.




Looking for affordable trench coats?

Trench Coat season is clearly here!

Mother nature has started to show us that FALL has definitely arrived and it is here to stay


(It was 80 degrees in Boston last week & 40 this weekend- New England weather is so unpredictable)

With that being said, I like to always be prepared

And with this back and forth, “you’re hot and you’re cold” weather. Trench Coats saved the day, every time!

You can wear them on those chilly days but not chilly enough to bust out that winter coat days 😉

Know what I mean?! LOL!

CLICK HERE to check out details on this baby

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with this “army green” color as much as the “wine-y” color

I’ve also been obsessed with saving

And so- everything affordable is a go for me.

I mean, can you find a trench coat this cheap anywhere else?

I don’t think so, sista!


This trench coat is one of my faves for many reasons

Numero um- It’s super light, yet protects you from those windy days

Numero dois- It’s symmetrical, so it adds that stylish touch

Numero tres- You can dress it up or down


Trench coats over crop tops by the way = everything.

I can’t get enough.

Specially, if you dress it up with high heel boots

Perfect Fall night look.


This weekend, I was feeling the casual wear..

And strolling around beautiful parks


Nature gets me all re-energized and ready to take on the world.

Best way to distress & re-charge.



Hope you beauties enjoyed this look.

Have a wonderful week!




My secret to staying motivated at the gym

Let’s talk fitness

I make fitness a huge priority in my life

It’s so important for me to stay healthy and feel good about my body

And I know most of us feel the same way, even if we aren’t aware of it as much as others

Feeling good about ourselves has a lot more to do with action than it does with looks

Let me explain why…

Think back to a time you were most active in your life

 Maybe you didn’t LOOK the way you wanted to yet but you still FELT amazing

Because you were working towards that goal

You were doing something about it

So your body automatically reacted in a positive way

(Positive actions lead to positive things)


Makes sense?

Now, the same way…

Our mind reacts positively OR negatively to how we feel when we look in the mirror

Which is why ressing well before hitting the gym makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD

Let me repeat

Dressing well before hitting the gym makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE IN THE WORLD


Because if you feel SEXY, you feel CONFIDENT and if you feel CONFIDENT, you are in a CONQUERING mindset

NO ONE can stop you.

You don’t care who’s looking, you don’t look at the time as much, you don’t compare yourself to others

You are in the BEST mindset you could possibly be to DESTROY that GOD DAMN WORKOUT!

And start your journey to get in THE BEST SHAPE OF YOUR LIFE.


Now let’s reverse the story

Tonight, you plan to hit the gym because you are partying it up this weekend

And let’s face it

If you workout today, you won’t feel as guilty about that extra drink 😉

But you throw this old, unflattering t-shirt on that makes you look fat

And those baggy pair of sweats because whatever.

How do you feel right now?

Not great, I’m assuming. And DEFINITELY not motivated to kill a workout


You know the saying, “Dress for the job you want, not the job you have

Same goes for the gym!

Dress for the body you want, for the motivation you need to reach that goal!

That’s my secret to staying motivated

And these leggings got me super excited to hit the gym


High waist is my new favorite trend

Don’t you just love it?!

It hides all things unflattering 😉

Plus, the criss cross tie is super adorable


I’ll be sharing this blazer look with you ladies soon, too.

It’s super light, so I LOVE it for Fall in Boston

Plus, it’s symmetrical

My new obsession.


Because I’m a strange cat 😉


I hope this post got you ALL HIPPED UP to go kill a workout

And maybe ready to start your journey to a healthier lifestyle IN STYLE!

Shop this look HERE!

I bet you are blowen away as much as I was when I saw the price.

I don’t like to break my wallet when I shop

And you shouldn’t have to break your wallet to look great, etiher

That’s my motto.


Have a great weekend babes!




Feel Good About Where You Shop

Hey all, so lately I’ve been pretty busy crushing books

Specifically, ones that EMPOWER women, ones that lift spirits and make you want to conquer the World


Those are my types of books

And coincidentally enough (or not, because I believe everything has a reason to happen)

An incredible company called “Shabby Apple” reached out to me about a month ago

They wanted to see if I would take part in collaborating with them

And just like any other collaboration I’ve ever done, first I needed to know their story

Second, I needed to be sure it was something I believed in.

And it couldn’t be more right on ladies (I say “ladies” because this post is for you)

So let me tell you their story, while I show off one of their incredible dresses 😉


Shabby Apple resonated with me as they are a company that is over 90% women owned/operated

Now that is a pretty damn large percentage and something to be super proud of!

Athelia (co-founder) believes that all women are beautiful, powerful and have unique distinctions.

And we can all use our beauty and power to change the world in our own unique ways.

I believe we can, too. 🙂


They design and sell vintage-inspired clothing. 

Which, anyone that’s ever known me for a while have heard me say at least once that I was born in the wrong era

Classy clothing from the past is something I’ve always being in awe of and wish I could wear today

Now I can! A more modern style but it still makes you feel like such a lady.

When I wore this dress, I felt like I was in the series of “Westworld

Is anyone watching HBO’S new show?

I always obsess over their dresses



And that is not all ladies

They also help women WORLDWIDE.

They connect with other organizations around the World to help women with a safe-living environment,

micro-loans, and so forth!

How awesome is that?!


So yes, you get to look beautiful, feel comfortable in your own skin, and proud of your purchase.

And if you fell in love with this company like I have?

You get a CHANCE to win a $50 gift card from them by following these 3 simple steps:

Follow me on instagram, if you haven’t already:

And tag a friend!

WINNER will be picked from a website which picks a name randomly, so it’s fair

Views: Look Of The Week

It’s Sunday, Sept 18th

I’m sitting at the coolest little coffeehouse called “Liquid Art Coffee House” in Killington, VT

Enjoying a nice Mapple Latte (double, of course)


Meanwhile, my love is doing the Spartan Beast (race)  maybe 10 minutes away from here? 🙂

It’s one of the hardest races in the U.S.

So you can imagine how proud I am and why I’m bragging 😉

He’s a BEAST and the most determined person I know.

(I hope you’re killing it babe!)


Killington, VT is actually a pretty sweet place to visit

Yesterday, we went to this AWESOME restaurant called “JAX”

If you are EVER in the area, Jax is your spot to eat and hang out

Great atmosphere, huge tvs for sports, pool tables, patio, DJ

All you need in one spot.

Below is the view we had from the patio


Ryan had their dynamite sandwich and I had their pulled pork with sweet potato fries

(cheat meal before the race. He needed to carb up)

And I was ALL IN.

Here are some pictures from our little stay adventure before the race:

That’s me attempting to look like I knew what I was doing yesterday



Fun fact:

This face is the same I make when I get into any other activities that I’m trying to concentrate on.



We stayed at this cute little Inn, called Swiss Farm Inn.

 However, I wouldn’t suggest staying there in the summer


Yeah, no a/c.


The views did make up for it though.

I mean, this horse was chilling right next to our Inn


And the mountains were so breathtaking.


Yesterday night, I wore this black off the shoulder slit mini dress (designer)

CLICK HERE for details on this beauty!


This dress is perfect for a wedding, date night or ANY special occasion.

And it’s black, so it looks good on everyone!!!

I love the price for a designer dress.



I can’t wait to come back here again in the winter to go skiing!

Killington, VT is known for their amazing mountains to hike, skii, and so on…

Hope you guys enjoyed this week’s look!

Get this beautiful dress HERE..



FALL in love: Look of the week

Fall is my favorite season, EVER.

And it’s almost here!


I do have a legit countdown for it

Have you been in Boston for Fall?! It’s seriously breathtaking

I also LOVE the weather (not too hot and not too cold)

And Fall fashion is hands down THE GREATEST.

You can show a little skin, but also leave a little to the imagination 😉

And I’d say this dress does JUST that!

I was IN LOVE the moment I set eyes on it

You seriously won’t believe how much it costs

I know I say it all the time but that’s because IT’S TRUE!


*happy dance*

CLICK HERE to check this baby out & turn heads


The back is pretty freaking fantastic

I mean, “look back at it” 😉


*windy days will become your favorite days*

Because…look back at it 😉


Who’s ready for a night out?!

I mean, Thursdays ARE the new Fridays, right?


Let me just pick up my hat from the ground because… windy days.


CLICK HERE for more deatz on this beautiful dress =)

And walk into next weekend looking fabulous!

Have a great weekend beauties!





It will be AMAZING

Although, I won’t be there

I’ll be taking notes on ALL the latest trends to share with you babes

SPEAKING of trends..

Lace has been a HOT trend lately!

Which I don’t know about you but it’s completely fine with me! 😉

2016-09-02 20.12.03

I wore this beauty out to the park, so I just threw in a pair of flats


For Fall, I will be rocking this dress with a pair of brown cowboy boots!

I wish it was chilly now, so I could start rocking that style immediately


The long sleeves on this dress also makes it perfect for Fall wear

CLICK HERE to check it out 🙂

2016-09-02 20.29.23

I added the belt to give it a nice pop, but you don’t necessarily have to.

2016-09-02 20.25.28


So, obviously being the curious cat that I am, I have looked up the meaning of “Chonb.”

Here’s the cool astrological definition:

The acronym CHONB has a life path number 6. Individuals with the life path number six are strong and dependable having the capacity to stand their ground in any circumstance.

P.S. My favorite number is six. The day of my birthday 🙂

*mind blown*

2016-09-02 20.13.30


This dress pretty much does all the talking.

2016-09-02 20.17.40


CLICK HERE to check out the amazing price this dress is now under

And look beautiful & stylish this Fall 🙂



“I walk down the street with the sun on my shoulder…”

Walking down the street with the sun on my shoulder

And this week, I got not ONE but TWO off-the shoulder looks to share with you

So you can walk down the street with the sun on YOUR shoulder, as well 😉

2016-09-04 22.57.20

Because FALL is around the corner..

And two is better than one.

Like two paychecks for example?

Or two yummy drinks this Labor Day weekend?

Speaking of Labor Day shenanigans,

Ry and I checked out this AWESOME brewery with some friends yesterday

It’s called “Night Shift Brewery

They had THE BEST vibe and the cutest dogs

(not the brewery obv, but the people there had the cutest puppies)

You really can’t go wrong when you go anywhere that has cute pups and great beer

At least not in my opinion



I’ve recently found a steal on this two MUST have off-the-shoulder looks.

What do you guys think of this baby blue off-the-shoulder bell sleeve shirt?

CLICK HERE for more deatz!


I wore this off-the-shoulder bell sleeve crop top probably more times than what’s “acceptable” in today’s society

But I don’t care because I feel beautiful in it.


And “there ain’t no award for that…trophies”

(Drake song)



But GAH..

The price is unbeatable, I can’t get over it.


Love it?! Click here to get this look!

Now, on to look “numero dois!”

Because tassels & colorful things?

CLICK HERE to get a similar look before they sell out again!


I LOVE how flattering this dress looks

You can dress it up with heels or dress it down with sneakers like I did.


It’s such an effortless look to pull off.

Not to mention, fun and trendy.

You could also add in a choker to complete this look

But I was feeling the casual look…


Which style is your favorite?

 The tassel trim off the shoulder dress ?

2016-09-04 22.47.55


The off-shoulder bell sleeve crop top?

 2016-09-04 22.57.03

Hope you ladies enjoyed this week’s look!

Have a fabulous week 🙂
