First and for most I am freezing!

Hello loves!

Today I'm here to tell you all about the fact that I am freezing my little butt off! It is winter no matter what anyone says! I have officially gotten out my warm sweaters and boots for this cold season. So today's post is going to be about how to stay warm and still look like the fashionista you are!

Winter Essentials!!

#1: Boots

Ok everyone loves boots and it seems like everyone has boot as well.. Which can get totally annoying when you see someone flaunting those new boots you just bought.. sigh beauty is pain. During the winter boots will be your best friend. They are easy to just slip on with a cute pair of distressed jeans or a comfy pair of leggings, my personal fav would be the leggings I've been basucally living in them all winter. The perfect boot, to me, is unique and fun! Boots can be short, tall, or.. um SUPER tall, which is slightly scary.. I prefer tall boots I feel like short boots cut my legs off, but that is just me. Here are a few boot options! 

These are all my personal boots that I own! The black pair was bought at Dillards and the brown was bought from Nordstrom

#2: Leggings

OMG! Doesn't everyone love leggings? They are the perfect thing to wear in the winter they look super cute with boots and come in literally any color you could ever want. I prefer black leggings they go with almost anything but I also have a grey/black cheetah print pair which I love:) They are prefect with a black flowy top or sweater depending on the weather that day! You can purchase leggings literally anywhere, just remember if you don't want everyone seeing through them try to get a thick pair, or be choosy with your undies lol! 

I know.. Don't laugh at my picture, this was the only way to get the whole thing! But these leggings were purchased at Victoria's Secret

#3: Flowy Tops

I love flowy comfy tops! You must be careful though because there is a difference between looking laid back and looking like a bum. My best advice is TRY THEM ON you can never be to sure about something you are buying so trying the top on will benefit you in the long run. Go with a fun pattern! In the winter we get in the dull black and brown routine nothing is better than putting on a fun color to brighten up the bleak months of the year! Note: don't be super crazy with the patterns especially if you are going to wear pattern leggings then it is totally ok to go with that super cute black top!

I can't remember where I got this but I'm going to guess a TJ Maxx this is my fav flowy top! 

#4: Sweaters

This is that winter must have that you are all thinking DUHHHH about me even saying. Hey! I'm just reminding you all, chill! ;) Sweaters also go great with that favorite pair of leggings! I love getting unique sweaters that are also super warm! One of my fav sweaters I have ever bought is from Forever 21 and is really warm!! Make sure and buy a pattern that you will like and not get bored of really fast. Also don't continue to buy the same pattern over and over and over that gets repetitive for you and those people that see you every day! 

Ok these are my fav sweaters the first was bought from Forever 21 and the second was also from Dillards

#5: Pull-overs

I LOVE THESE! Not only in the winter are these great cause you are super cold but they are so comfy and acceptable to wear out of the house! HaHaHa! Pullovers are great with your favorite pair of bootcut or skinny jeans (I like bootcut personally) then I would put on a cute pair of converse this is especially cute on those warmer winter days. Pull-overs come in all different kinds my favorites are from Victorias Secret! 

#6: Skinny Jeans

Skinny jeans are probably my all time favorite for winter they are warm and work perfect with those new boots you just bought! They are usually stretchy which makes you feel nice! They look great with flowy shirts and sweaters! Dark wash is my favorite in the winter! I love my skinnies from White House Black Market! 
This is one of my many pairs of skinny jeans they were purchased at American Eagle

#7: Coats 

Last but surely not least, that winter coat! Not only are coats for your warmth but they can be a fashion statement as well! They come in all colors, styles, and prices! Pick out the color that is best for you! Like I said a pop of color in the winter is refreshing so go with a fun color like kelly green, yellow, or red. When you pick out that perfect coat then you HAVE to get some accessories! Find a super cute warm scarf that will look great with your fabulous new coat! 

I hope you enjoyed all my winter essentials ideas! If you have any questions you can comment or e-mail me at

Holiday Treats!!!

Hello my loves!
 I thought it would be super fun to do a holiday treat section on my blog.. yes, I know it doesn't really go along with the Beauty theme but HEY! A girls gotta eat right? ;) For the remainder of the Holidays I'm going to be letting you in on some of my Fav treats of the season!!

Treat #1: Peppermint Bark!

OMG! This is literally my favorite holiday candy ever! The weird thing is I use to hate mint and chocolate mixed together but for the past few years I have been so obsessed with it! The sad thing is peppermint bark is an expensive treat to be buying all the time :( But have no fear this is one of the easiest treats to make!! It is also super inexpensive too! Just so you know I did actually make this a few days ago and used the recipe below. I did have some trouble with the layers separating but I looked online and found an awesome way to prevent that from happening. This is how, after pouring the white chocolate onto the dark you simple use a spoon or fork and mix the two layers slightly to create a swirl pattern! Super easy fix to that issue and looks great too! (Just make sure you don't mix the layers too much!) 

Peppermint Bark Recipe!

I hope you enjoy this simple sweet treat! :)
With love and holiday joy! -xoxo Amelia 
P.S. If you aren't into making your own my all time fav peppermint bark that you buy can be found at William-Sonoma! :)

Holiday Outfit #1: The Casual Look

The holidays are all about the cheer, stress, and the shear need for the season to SLOW down. Even though your schedule is super crazy never let your style falter. Yes, we all know you are busy and tired, just like everyone else! But why not look fabulous? You'll have everyone asking "How does she do it?" :) My first look for the holiday season is the casual look! Not only will you be super comfy but you will look super cute! My absolute favorite thing is oversized sweaters; not only will you look super cute but you will be comfy! 

My First Look

Excuse my messy room but here is my casual Christmas outfit. I'm wearing dark jeans and flowy black and white sweater and black boots!

Another view!

Hope you like the look! Comment if you have any questions!

My all time favorite foundation!

Foundation is the base of your makeup the part that actually stays on your face all day long so not only do you want a foundation that stays on all day but you want one that does break your face out. I have never had a problem with a foundation causing acne, but I know it is a huge issue for some girls. Now I am not being snobby but I think that the way to ensure a flawless looking face you need a good quality makeup. In turn there are some fantastic drugstore foundations out there but my all time favorite comes from... You guessed it MAC. Now don't stop reading because you think oh she is just another MAC worshiping girl, ;) because trust me I use to think the same thing about everyone who used MAC.. Sorry;) but I will say after trying out their Studio Fix foundation I was in love. But I'm not going to just babble all post long about how I love it I want to show you all the facts of it as well. I mean that is what I'm here for.

My Face Half Covered with Studio Fix

The left side is the one with the foundation on it and you can defiantly see the distinct difference. I was literally amazed the first time I used it. I covers all of my flaws and makes skin look gorgeous.

Ok here is a side view left half has the foundation on! (Excuse my face lol)

Ok so now that you have see the proof that this stuff literally works miracles let me give you some other info. I use about 1 1/2-2 pumps on my face, and I use a MAC 187 brush to apply the foundation as well which is my favorite brush to apply my foundation with! You don't need a ton to get great coverage. When you buy the foundation it will come without the pump but I would defiantly encourage you to purchase it as well considering you save SO much more foundation that way which in the long run will save you money. Thanks for reading loves! Hope you enjoyed comment if you have any questions!

Studio Fix- $27.00 
Pump- around $8.50

I'm Baaaccckkkkkk :)

Hello my loves!

  It has been way to long! I've been missing the blogging seen lately, and think its time to get back into the beauty world! For my first post back I'm going to talk about my newest favorite product that you can use one your hair, body, and skin which let me tell you is freaking awesome! The product is called Coconut oil!

 Omg I know you are all so surprised! Ha! But how I came upon this great product was by complete accident. During Black Friday The Body Shop was having an awesome sale, three items for $30 which is crazy great! I bought their vitamin E body butter, concealer, and bronzer which is not the point at all. But they had another deal that was a bag filled with all sorts of goodies! One of those was a small bottle of liquid Coconut Oil! Lately I have been having a ton of hair problems including oily looking hair issues along with a dry flaky scalp. I NEVER use conditioner on my scalp so the other night instead of using conditioner I covered all of my hair and scalp with Coconut oil and then rinsed with water. After getting out of the shower I combed my hair and then proceeded to put it in a bun wet. Slept on my hair the entire night with some oil remaining in my hair (obviously the water didn't really get it all out) so over night the oil soaked into my scalp making it less dry and curing the flakes.  In the morning I washed my hair doing my usual routine of washing my hair and then coating the shaft of my hair with conditioner. My hair looks 10x better, it's soft and feels extremely more healthy! My advice is don't do this all the time unless you are going for a nasty, oily, grunge look. ;) But I would defiantly use this trick when you are needing to make your hair soft, cure flakiness, and/or help hair grow (YES! Coconut oil also helps get those long luscious locks) this is defiantly my new favorite product!

My Everyday Hair Look!

Everyone has one look that they do with their hair on an everyday basis. Usually it is how their hair is naturally, my hair is naturally straight as a stick so that's how I wear it! I am going to give you step by step directions on how I do my hair everyday!


  • Blow Drier 
  • Brush 
  • Round Brush 
  • Flat Iron
  • Wide Tooth Comb
  • Large Clip


  • Clear: Strong Lengths Shampoo
  • Three Minute Miracle 
  • It's a 10
  • Matrix Design Pulse: Thermo Glide
  • Aquage: Finishing Spary


  1. Wash hair with Strong Lengths Shampoo, rinse it out!! ;)
  2. Condition with Three Minute Miracle (rinse) 
  3. When you get out of the shower towel dry you hair some, then apply It's A 10 and use your wide tooth comb to comb through your hair. 
  4. Apply Matrix Thermo Glide to your ends (ONLY YOUR ENDS)
  5. Flip your head over and start drying your hair when your hair is 70-80% dry pull up over half of it and use your Round Brush to blow it out. *finish each section like this (if your hair has layers section off at them if not you can section it however you like!) 
  6. When hair is completely dry spray on  Aquage: Finishing Spray all over your hair.
  7. Warm up your flat iron and just flat iron the ends of your hair to "smooth it out" and make it look less frizzy. 
  8. Spray hair spray on your brush and then comb it through your freshly straightened hair a few times. 
  9. YOU'RE DONE!! :)
