#HolidayHaute: My favorite perfume + a GIVEAWAY!!!

Yup, you heard that right!!

This post is a collab with a few other lovely ladies [Yazzi | Val | Devyn | Elisabeth | Simone] & we’re giving you some of our FAVORITE products!!!

Now, if there’s something you need to know about me, it’s that I obsess over many things (such as boybands, shot glasses, makeup, journals, the list goes on and on) and when I have an obsession, I go hard. One of my obsessions is PERFUME. I don’t feel complete without it. I genuinely get upset if I leave my apartment without perfume! I blame my mother for this because she too is a perfume addict! We have loads! So of course, it was only right that I give away one of my ALL TIME favorite perfumes for this giveaway: Our Moment by One Direction. I don’t like this perfume just because I love the band, I TRULY adore this perfume. It smells amazing & every time I wear it, I get complimented. YOU NEED IT IN YOUR LIFE. If you’d like me to do a perfume collection post, please leave me a comment below.

On to the best part: The giveaway! This giveaway is U.S ONLY. Sorry to our International followers, but this isn’t the last of us. Next giveaway could be for YOU! Stay tuned. xo

Sweater Weather Tag

First off, I’d like to thank the lovely Lainey for tagging me in this! I love everything about fall, and chilly weather, so it’s literally the perfect tag! Check out her blog for posts on life, health, beauty & motherhood! 😀

Favourite candle scent? 

Marshmallow Fireside from Bath & Body Works. It’s been one of my favorites for years now.

Coffee, tea or hot chocolate?

Hot chocolate! I like coffee, but only iced, and I have to be in the mood for it!

What’s the best fall autumn memory you have? 

I went apple picking for the first time ever with my roommate & her friend my sophomore year of college. 🙂

Which make-up trend do you prefer: dark lips or winged eyeliner?

How can I choose one?! They’re both fabulous, especially together. But winged eyeliner has a special place in my heart.

Best fragrance for fall? 

I don’t wear perfume based on the seasons, I wear whichever perfume I grab first haha!

Favourite Thanksgiving food (or fall autumn food if you don’t celebrate Thanksgiving)?

Pernil.. my mom’s makes it soooooo good.

What is autumn weather like where you live? 

Chilly, windy, and perfect. But lately, too damn hot…like hello weather, get it together.

Most worn sweater?

Lately I’ve been wearing a Las Vegas hoodie every day, it’s oversized and comfy!

Football games or jumping in leaf piles?

Leaf piles!

Favourite type of pie?

Pumpkin & Apple!

What song really gets you into the fall autumn spirit? 

Again, I don’t really associate things with the season, so I can’t pick one song for this. Every song gets me hype and in a good mood hahah!

Is pumpkin spice worth the hype?

Pumpkin spice everything….BUT lattes. Those are foul. HAHA.

I’m tagging these ladies whom I’ve been communicating with daily..for a special surprise to be announced SOON! ;P

Sunshine Blogger Award.


Hello friends!

My fabulous friend Valerie just nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award which I’m super thankful for; we all know I love tag posts! I know I tell you this all the time, but definitely check out Val’s blog! Super chic, and she posts weekly! If you want someone who’s consistent, friendly & runs an excellent blog, she’s the one to follow!

The Rules:

  • Thank the person/people who nominated you.
  • Answer the questions from your nominators.
  • Nominate eleven other bloggers and give them eleven questions.
  • Like what I mentioned before, this is to spread the love and I’m doing these awards so that we’ll meet interesting bloggers. Please do check out all of the blogs I nominated and follow them if you like.

(Another variation I’ve seen is to nominate 6 people, and give 3 questions & that’s the version I’ll be doing.)

Here are the questions Valerie asked me:

  1. What’s one thing you love about the fall season? The change of weather!!! I can’t stand summer because it’s so hot and humid! I love the cool breeze in the fall, it instantly makes me happier!
  2. When you’re feeling down, what do you do to feel better? I listen to music whenever I’m not in the best of moods. Listening to some of my favorite artists and bands always cheers me up.
  3. What is your comfort food? Pizza. Always and forever.
  4. Where is your favorite place to be and why? Definitely Manhattan. I know so many people who can’t stand being in the city because it’s always so crowded, and full of tourists, but I love it. I’m a city girl 100%.
  5. What’s one thing that makes you happy? As Valerie said, it’s going to sound super cheesy, but, One Direction. Just everything about those 4 (almost typed 5.. :/) cheer me up instantly.
  6. If you could travel anywhere right now, where would you go? In the U.S, California; Out of the country, England.
  7. What is one thing you love about yourself? This might sound silly, but, my ability to say no. I know so many people who don’t know how to tell others no. I don’t do things simply because someone feels I need or should do something. If I don’t feel like it, there’s no changing my mind, so don’t bother.
  8. What is one thing you love about your blog? Can I choose everything? I love my header, I love the schedule I’ve created, and I love the interaction I have with my readers. Blogging isn’t easy, but it’s definitely worth it all.
  9. Why do you blog? 1. To escape. Blogging helps get my mind off things when I’m stressed and/or upset. 2. For the interaction. I love meeting new people, making new friends and sharing my tips/tricks and/or advice with the world.
  10. Name 3 things you can’t live without. These types of questions are always so hard. 1. Family 2. Makeup 3. Laptop
  11. What are you looking forward to this weekend? Probably grocery shopping. I’m working on going back to this healthy lifestyle journey I’ve been on for the past few years. I know I say this like every other month, but I really need to try my hardest.

My nominees are:

  1. Carlynn @ Carlynn’s Blog.
  2. Anna @ Bee Beauty.
  3. Arielle @ With All My Affection.
  4. Devyn @ Devyn Cox.
  5. Diana @ Diana’s Adventures.
  6. Brey @ Ordinary Adventures.

Here are my questions:

  1. What’s your favorite childhood memory?
  2. Who is your blogging inspiration?
  3. What is your favorite family tradition?
  4. Besides blogging, what is your favorite hobby?
  5. What camera do you use for your photos?
  6. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

Hope you all have fun with this post! I changed it up, as usual. I posted 6 questions instead of 3 or 11 and I nominated 6 bloggers instead of 11! Even if I personally didn’t nominate you, feel free to post this on your blog and tag me! I’d love to read your answers!

Sisterhood Of The World Award


The Sisterhood of the World Blog Award is about connecting with other female bloggers and getting the blogger community together.

Valerie nominated for another award and I’m super excited to fill it out because I love these award posts! As I’ve mentioned before, make sure you check out her blog and subscribe!

The rules are:

1. Thank and link the blogger who nominated you.
2. Answer the questions the nomination has provided.
3. Nominate ten other bloggers
4. Create ten questions for your nominees and notify them of their nomination.

Here are the questions Valerie asked me:

  1. Who or what inspired you to start blogging? One of my friends began blogging and it made me want to get back into it. I’ve had various other blogs before, but I let them all fail. Not this time though. 😉
  2. What is your favorite topic to write about? Probably my beauty posts, and food posts. I love makeup and I love food so those are my two favorite days.
  3. If you could travel to anywhere in the world right now, where would you go? London.
  4. Name 3 things you can’t live without: My Family. My Friends & My perfume collection LOL.
  5. What products do you use for your skincare regimen? Ooh, I’m really bad with skincare. I don’t have a skincare regimen, which is horrible. I use masks from time to time and I try to moisturize everyday with the moisturizer from First Aid Beauty.
  6. What is one of your holy grail beauty products? THIS MASK. I SWEAR by this mask! Your pores become invisible after using it & you see the difference IMMEDIATELY after using it. Also, if you decide to try it out, DEFINITELY mix it with Apple Cider Vinegar as it says. DON’T USE WATER.
  7. Who is your fashion/style icon? I don’t really have one tbh but I love Jaclyn Hill & Amra (Amrezyyy)’s style. I’d kill to have them re-do my wardrobe.
  8. What is one of your current obsessions? Blogging weekly, duh! 
  9. Did you do anything fun over the weekend? I went to Six Flags on Saturday & It was the first day of fright fest! It was so much fun!
