Obsessed with my BCBG "Leather" Leggings
If you haven't bought a pair of these for the holiday season, you must run out and buy a pair. Many stores are carrying them at a variety of different price points including Zara, H&M, and BCBG. I bought mine in the BCBG section of Lord & Taylor for about $150. At first, I thought, "When I am really going to wear these?" but as I went on the search for tops to go with them, I found two cute options. I styled both options with pearls because I just love the conservativeness (is that a word?) of the pearls with the edgy-rocker style of the "leather" leggings.
What are you wearing this holiday season?
I hope it's Merry!

I get asked many times how to create a "Victoria's Secret" inspired hairstyle. So, I created a hair tutorial on how to get a similar look with classic curls. Depending on your hair type, length and texture, you may get a slightly different result, but I think curls look great on everyone. It's the perfect hairstyle for the upcoming holiday season. Go ahead and give it a try.
Good Luck! xoxo
The products I used in this tutorial:
-It's a Ten Miracle Leave In Product
-Cibu Ancient Serum
-Redken Quick Dry 18 Hair Spray
-FHI 1.5 inch Curling Iron

I’ve been a Clinique Naturally Glossy Mascara user since the age of 16; and I still use it for my lower lashes. My two main reasons for never going without it are the wand size, which is small and fits perfectly on my lower lashes; and second, I never end up with raccoon eyes because it doesn’t transfer on me. With sensitive skin and eyes, I was reluctant to try any other type of mascara. I have never liked the feel of thick, clumpy lashes, but felt like I needed more volume and length on my top lashes than the Clinique could give me. That’s when I went on my search for a new mascara…
After trying a plethora of high-end and drug store mascaras, I have to say my favorite is the Benefit Bad Gal Lash Mascara.
Please Note: This product works well for my lashes, which are short and not too thick. As with any product, some will love it and some will hate it.What does Benefit Say?
What does this product cost?
$19.00 for 8.5g
What do I think about this product?
First, let me start off by saying that I love the effects that a mascara wand with a big brush gives you. This oversized brush makes it very easy for me to add volume to the base of my lashes by wiggling the wand at my roots and moving upward. The volume I get from this mascara is amazing, so I definitely think it is more volumizing than lengthening.
As with most mascaras, I noticed it drying out around the end of the 3rd month, which is when I usually toss them anyway. I think Bad Gal Lash goes on smooth with no clumps, gives me major volume and nice length, doesn’t flake or transfer and is the perfect black color.
