It always feels like the world is kind of going crazy right before the holidays or maybe it’s because I live right next to one of the busiest malls in South Florida. You guys the traffic is literally INSANE. Yes it kind of always is around our area but during the holidays it’s honestly unbearable. On a positive note, I’m pretty excited that this year the first night of Hanukkah falls on Christmas eve. It’s funny because my uncle always hosted Thanksgiving growing up but since my cousins, his kids, moved to NY we always have Thanksgiving on Christmas. So now, this year we will be celebrating Hanukkah with a turkey and jelly donuts haha! Looking forward to hanging out with family and friends this weekend & I hope you are doing the same 🙂
Today I’m sharing this cozy lace-up sweaterfrom Chicwish. I enjoy receiving packages from them because the quality is truly amazing. When I was looking for a lace-up sweater I wanted something unique because I kept seeing the same style all over. I love how it laces up the middle of the front of the sweater. It’s super cozy and a bit oversize for a stylish twist! This sweater is currently on sale for about $50. I linked it here above and below in the widget. I’m wearing a size small and it fits perfect.
I paired it with these Target mid-rise jeggings and if you follow along on Instagram you know my recent obsession with them are real. Not only do they fit like a glove, they are $29.99!!! They have a TON of different trendy styles available, see here .

Lastly, for this comfortable everyday look I paired it with my Gucci loafer slides that I got for my birthday. I really love these shoes and they were worth all the madness that came with finding them. If you like a good splurge- these are so worth it. If not I totally get it- some things you just rather not spend the money on. I rounded up some of my favorite loafer slide dupes for you below:
Okay so for or those of you who procrastinated your holiday shopping, don’t fear…On The DL is here :)! See below some last minute gift ideas for both her and him!
Happy Friday Dolls! Anyone have any exciting plans for the weekend, holiday parties? We don’t have anything set but one of my best friends will be in town for a wedding this weekend and seeing her for even an hour will make my weekend:) It sucks, all three of my best friends live in NY and I honestly wish I had at least one of them back in South Florida with me! Don’t get me wrong I’ve made some amazing friends since moving back from college 9 years ago but I still miss my baesss <3
So I know I’ve been sharing a bunch of gift guides ( and all items are also linked above in the SHOP tab under Holiday Gift Guide) but trust me it’s a ton of work to comb the Internet and with so many options and ideas, I promise you’ll thank me later for making it easier on you! Just call me your own personal elf haha
Keeping with the theme of the week, today I’m sharing a personal gift guide for the beauty lover!! All of these items are personal favorites of mine that I am currently using and I’m excited to share them with you along with why I love them so much.
DESSANGE Paris Oleo Miracle Collection: This collection includes a Shampoo, Conditioner & Replenishing Oil. The first time using this product I literally wanted to bathe in it. The delicious aromas of gardenia petals, sandalwood (my favorite) and citrus orange really had me. I’m a sucker for good smells and I think that’s why I’m super obsessed with candles. I was always picky with hair products but since I started using bleach in it a year and a half ago I’ve been all about finding new products that will help keep my hair healthy and strong from all the harsh chemicals. The Oleo Miracle Collection was created by combining nutrients from nature’s most precious oils like *Argan*, Camelia and Pracaxi to leave hair smooth, bouncy and manageable and that was exactly what my dry hair was needing. The shampoo and conditioner both have a light consistency to them and are color-safe which is a big plus for most of us. The replenishing oil has really helped keep my hair moisturized and less dry. I’ve seen such a difference in the last month, especially at the ends just by using this oil once a week. The best part is this line is sold exclusively in Target. You know…. that magical place, we all go to for one or two things and end up leaving spending at least $100 on stuff we really didn’t need, who’s with me? Well this collection you definitely need to try and I’ve made it easy by linking it here!
Prestige Bronzer: Confession, I’ve been using the same bronzer since college, that’s like 12 years ago and I think that’s all I have to say. It’s absolutely not easy to find and as the years go by less people tend to sell it but I found my go-to place on the Internet and I’m sharing it with you here!
Josie Maran 100% Pure Argan Oil: If you have never done research on Argan Oil and how good it is for literally EVERYTHING in life please go do so now! Whenever someone approaches me about a product, if it has Argan oil, I know it’s a quality item. I recently got a facial and my skin was dry around my cheeks so I’ve been using this Argan Oil in those areas under my serum and moisturizer to help boost it and keep it hydrated.
Flowerbomb Rollerball: Most of my perfumes I now buy in a rollerball form and this is why –> They are perfect for traveling, easily fit in your purse, more affordable than buying the actual perfume & on top of that they last much longer!
Benefit Hydrating Tinted Lip Balm– Posiebalm: During the weekdays this is my go-to for a lip balm. A friend of mine recently introduced me to it and I’ve been obsessively using it. So soft with a perfect pink tint!
Anastasia Highlighter: There are a lot of options when it comes to highlighters but I’ve been using this one for a year exactly. I love the way it brightens and highlights the face for a glowing look.
Geneva Naturals Vitamin C+E Serum: I just did a review on this new skincare line and this serum is all about the GLOW!! See here for the post.
Glo-Minerals Precise Micro Browliner/ Cream Stay Shadow Sticks: This ultra-slim pencil for your brows helps fill in areas with precision and detail for a more natural look. The cream stay shadow sticks are perfect for those who are not beauty experts…AKA me! I’m not the best with eye make-up so these are easy to apply and long lasting!
Nars Blush- Color Orgasm: Hands down best blush ever. It’s perfect for every skin tone.
Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor – Color HD Addiction : This matte lip color is very moisturizing and has a velvety feel. Keeps lips hydrated while making them look great.
YSL Touche Eclat Blur Primer: I got this as a sample on Sephora and I didn’t really understand how awesome this product was until I read more about how to wear it. This blur primer can be applied under foundation to maximize radiance or worn alone to create a flawless makeup-less look
Bite Beauty Multistick– Color Macaroon: This multistick applies like a cream and wears like a powder it features universal shades for the eyes, lips, and cheeks that compliment all skin tones and are formulated to use anywhere on the face and it’s formulated without parabens.
