Lip Pencil in Menatour & Ring of Fire / Vaseline Lip Therapy / Hair Ties / Keys / Elago Phone Case

I never realized how dirty my phone, my iPad, my computer, my sunglasses (basically everything I own) was before I opened up my first package of Well-Kept Towelettes...let's just say it was pretty embarrassing! Research suggests that your phone can be dirtier than a toilet handle, just let that sink in! What's even worse...think about how many times a day you put that dirty phone on your face?

Good thing I'm partnering with Well-Kept & 19 other lovely ladies to share why we always keep our Well-Kept Screen Cleansing Towelettes in our bags + give you a chance to win a 1 year supply of Well-Kept + $200!!! To sum it up these Cleansing Wipes are just as necessary as my wallet in everyday life, so scroll down and enter to win yours!

If you haven't noticed I have a thing for bright white clothes! Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter...whenever...white is always a good idea. In the past I've stuck to little white dresses and white shorts, but I'm all about the white jeans right now! Not going to lie it took me a while to get used to them. White jeans were something I always wanted (they were on that ultimate shopping list that I mentioned here), I would always try them on and hate the way they looked, and when I got these I'm not going to lie...I tried them on and hated them. THEN I figured out what to wear with them, voila they all of a sudden became a staple! I can't wait for it to get a little bit colder so I can wear them with brown boots and an oversized sweater!!

Check out all the White After Labor Day pieces I'm obsessing over this season!

Room for Style: Decorating | Bright Ideas

Bright Ideas | Lighting | Decorating | #LivingAfterMidnite
Let's talk about lighting!

You must pay attention to the light in a room. Lamp style is important, but so is the quantity. The way you light a room will completely change a space and having multiple lighting sources allows you to control ambiance, mood and how you use the room.
Bright Ideas | Lighting | Decorating | #LivingAfterMidnite
Using dimmers can also make an incredible difference. I once read an article that said "dimmers are a gift from the decorating fairy" and I would have to agree!

Bright Ideas | Lighting | Decorating | #LivingAfterMidnite
Lighting should be layered. Use a mix of floor and table lighting, even if there is a ceiling fixture!

Bright Ideas | Lighting | Decorating | #LivingAfterMidnite
Get the scale right!

Lamps can add color or a statement to a room...

Full Disclosure this is the second time I've painted my nails like this (same design, same color) in the past 2 weeks! The first time was the night before Day 1 of Fashion Week because my previous mani was chipping and I needed something that would last. Honestly I did it so fast I didn't think it would come out good, but I posted a pic on Instagram and got such a great response and so many questions I knew I had to post it on the blog. Problem is by the time I actually got a chance to take pics the mani was ruined! Fast forward 1 week (with one mani in between) and I did it all over again!!

This shade from LAQA & Co. is amazing & the perfect color for Fall + who doesn't love a little bit of ombre glitter! Tip: When you're doing glitter that you want to fade from tip down paint your nails the opposite way (I brush from tip to cuticle, stopping where I want the glitter to stop, then add another layer of glitter once the first is dry just near the tip!)

Alas the last Fashion Week outfit! I originally planned on 5 days of shows & events, but I skipped one day in favor of food shopping, watching tv & doing laundry. I applaud the girls that can handle all 7 because I for sure can not! A simple black dress with a statement belt is just what needed to be worn to close out the week - simple, but chic enough to make an impression. I'm in awe I'm still heels...scratch that...heels on cobblestone! Going out with a bang ((& thankfully not a fall))!

The hot days of NYFW are over & I was finally able to break out the (faux) leather for my second to last day!! I've been on the hunt for the perfect (for me) leather pencil skirt & leather leggings for what seems like years. Leather pencil skirts for girls with hips & a butt are pretty much non existent and I was close to giving up, that is until I walked into Express over Labor Day Weekend and saw this one! Honestly I grabbed it to bring into the dress room not expecting it to work, but low and behold it's perfect!!! Not only was I able to cross a skirt off my ultimate shopping list, I struck gold and found leather leggings that fit and look good! My Fall/Winter wardrobe is coming together nicely and I'm ecstatic that two items that I was starting to think would never work for me finally found their way into my closet!

Do you have an item on your wishlist that you've been on the hunt for forever too?

Photo Diary: #NYFW Spring/Summer 2015

Fashion Week is officially over! As much as I love being able to see so many blogger friends from across the country and the energy and excitement Fashion Week brings, I so glad for it to be over!! I literally feel like I haven't been in my apartment to do more than sleep in weeks & my empty fridge and overflowing laundry are proof. This is the first year where I really put effort into going to shows & events and it was exhausting! I was heading to work most days then hopping on the train to attend shows & events in the afternoon and night. Exhausting isn't even the word, I'm still not sure how I was functioning on so little sleep. 

But all of it was worth it! The blisters, the 100 degree subway rides, the standing in line for shows, the sprinting for my life across Grand Central to make the express train home...all worth it! Here's just a peek at what my week looked like...
