Buffalo Plaid, Feathers, and Red Lips

Only 6 days until Christmas, and another festive mani Monday down!  I’m feeling the festive spirit with finding a way to bring a little red, green and glam to my everyday.  Today’s festive is a buffalo plaid mixed mani, feather necklace and a classic red lip!

For my buffalo plaid mixed mani I started with Friday Flannel nail wrap from Jamberry on my ring.  I then used Julep polishes to do my black and gold nails.  Once it dried I drew the line down the side of my ring and middle with that same gold and then cleaned up around the nail.  This really matched a lot of my festive red and green outfits I’ve been wearing lately, like this feather and red lip look!

Smile, You’re Gorgeous!  It may be a Monday, but if anything can bring me a smile on a Monday, it’s a good mani.  Now that spring is here, I’m loving a great creme finish mani in a simple spring shade.  Avon Gel Finish in Moondust is that perfect early spring shade.

Moodust is a light grey but it has enough white in it to almost be considered a pastel.  Regardless, it will match your all your spring pastels shades.  I’ve commented before how much I LOVE this Gel Finish formula.  It’s so spot on glossy, goes on smooth and self levels like a champ!  Finish it with the Avon Gel Finish Top Coat!  You know what else goes great with a mani?  A new statement ring, like this ring set from mark. the Quite A Pair Ring Set is only $22 for the pair!

Fall Basics: The Blanket Scarf

Fall Basics - The Blanket Scarf

Fall Basics – The Blanket Scarf

As humorous as it is to call all these highly repeated fall activities “basic,” there is a reason why you see every blogger/basic girl headed to the pumpkin patch with her Hunters on, Starbucks in hand and blanket scarf wrapped around them. They’re freaking functional! Cooler weather is creeping in more each day along with wet weather and shorter days so a fall basic makes them not only more enjoyable but also more fun! My biggest fall basic right now is the blanket scarf!

#1 Reason Why You Need A Blanket Scarf – it is a blanket you can wear!

Us perpetually cold people unite!  A fashion trend we can get behind, being warm.  Even in mild California, Pennsylvania Alicia is still dethawing.  So a blanket – er i mean scarf- is my best accessory when cold.  You can bundle all up in it, drape it over your shoulder or lap, belt it as a cape/shawl/ruana/poncho for a sweater top layer look.  Either way you’ll be warm.

This fall I’m absolutely loving the mark. Blanket Check Scarf.  It is reversible print features a black/brown/white plaid and a black and white herringbone on the other.  The colors are the perfect fall accents to go with pretty much whatever you are wearing.  I already have a holiday plaid one so this one is a nice addition.  PLUS it is like 2 scarfs in one with the duo prints.  The quality is really great especially for only $26!

Wear And Share Wednesday: My Most Asked About Jewelry Set

Avon Bravo Jewelry Collection

Avon Bravo Jewelry Collection

Lately I’ve been reaching for the same jewelry everyday, call it lazy or I call it, goes – with – everything.  I can’t tell you how many compliments and questions I’ve received on it so I thought I might as well wear and share!  First up is this Avon Bravo Jewelry Collection, what I seem to be wearing non-stop.  I think it’s because it goes with literally everything I wear, is silver and gold toned and bit fall with the feathers.   In this collection you can get the long necklace, bracelet, earrings and/or ring (not pictured) between $14.99 and $19.99 the price point is spot on.

Next up is what I get complimented the most on, the Avon Calypso Sunrise Collection.  This set features a faux green geode look in a long necklace, bracelet and a colored stone ring (not pictured) at $19.99.  You would think this would be more for summer wear than fall, but paired with fall tones like camel, army green, taupe, sage, navy, etc this set really works for fall.  I first saw this paired against our Avon Versatile Faux Wrap Dress which is a mushroom color and I thought, WOW how stunning is that, a must have for fall!

Last but not least is the Fancy Animal Collection.  If you like a little personality into your jewelry then you can appreciate the fun in these guys.  This collection features what is obviously animals who are fancy in a bracelet, ring and watch in elephant, cheetah and leopard ($14.99 – $19.99).  I picked up 2 of the bracelets in leopard and cheetah, mainly because I already had this ring and I like the little bit o’ 90’s look to it.  These look really cute with just a simple jeans, tee, faux leather jacket and heels look.

Mani Monday: Jamberry Razzle Dazzle

Today is the last day to get in on my Jamberry party so I thought I’d share my jamicure for mani Monday all inspired off a single Jamberry sample of Razzle Dazzle!  As hostess I got a little extra samples of the new fall wraps but Razzle Dazzle seemed to razzle and dazzle me!

Featuring Jamberry Wraps Razzle Dazzle and Shake Your Tail Feather

On my pointer I used the Jamberry Razzle Dazzle wrap.  After cutting it to fit I had some leftover scraps that I then cut in a diagonal shape for an accent nail on my ring over some white polish.  For my middle I used Jamberry Shake Your Tail Feather that is a retired wrap I snagged up!  To finish off the look I used mark. Nailed It Duo in Green Thumb and Steel Magnolias (last seen here) and currently on clearance for only $2.99!!!

My current obsessories are these new pieces from mark.’s continental shift collection for fall, where East meets West for some serious obsession worthy style.  Besides these jewelry items there’s also a killer obi belt, a classic camel tote and a fun bag charm, but it’s these statement pieces that has me swooning.

I’ve been loving big statement rings just by themselves to steal the show.  With this duo you can wear them together or separate, either way they make an impact.  The jewels swing green or more blue depending on the light.

The tassel necklace trend gets some far east glam with jade stones and bright gold.  I just love this unusual take on a tassel and it’s layered detail.  It’s really easy to wear, give you statement necklace look without being too chunky.
