Nowadays, so many fashion bloggers are writing on topics other than just fashion. I thought I’d join the trend and try a recipe post. Although, this recipe is so easy I’m not sure it’s even fair to call it a recipe. This healthy snack is so simple to prepare and is great for satisfying a sweet tooth. Actually, this recipe satisfies three important conditions I look for when cooking: easy, healthy, and inexpensive. You might even have all the ingredients on hand already.

Ingredients:

- Ripe bananas (I used three)
- Greek yogurt of your choice (I used non-fat vanilla)
- Optional: dried fruit, nuts, shredded coconut, etc. (I used cranberries)

These pictures were taken in the DePaul University quad. I decided to pair my favorite skort from summer with fleece-lined tights. Winter fashion tip: Pick up some fleece tights in a few different colors. I swear these things are warmer than wearing pants.

It feels good to be back in Chicago and back to my wardrobe of cozy layers. This sherpa-lined Topshop denim jacket is a newly acquired favorite of mine. Its a welcome alternative to my over-worn leather jackets. 

On a side note, I apologize in advance if I don’t post as frequently in the next couple months. This is mostly because it has been freezing out which makes it hard to wear anything besides a giant coat. Also, my school schedule is a bit crazy this quarter. So, I’ll try to document what I wear as often as possible. 





New Year’s in Vegas

In my suitcase: Topshop bralet, skirt, flats, and heels | Victoria’s Secret underwear | Too Faced Everything Nice palette and la crème lipstick | Kiss eyelash adhesive

I was lucky enough to spend New Year’s in Las Vegas with one of my best friends. Over a few days, we sat front row at a Britney Spears concert, went ice skating, and watched fireworks from our balcony at the Cosmopolitan. There was also plenty of time for shopping. 

Day to Night #CosmopolitanChic

Cosmopolitan Las Vegas Style

In collaboration with The Cosmpolitan Las Vegas, I’ve styled two #CosmopolitanChic outfits to take you from day to night at The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas. The Cosmopolitan is the hippest hotel in Vegas and is the perfect venue to spend New Year’s Eve. A classic lace hem skirt from Topshop will transition you seamlessly from a day of brunch, shopping and relaxing to a NYE party at the Marquee night club. Do a quick change into a metallic bralet; swap boots for heels, then you’re ready to go. Shop the looks below.

I believe that great winter style starts and ends with great outerwear. I have been wearing this Topshop coat too often lately. It has that effortless, borrowed from the boys look and is surprisingly warm. While taking these pictures, I made some new squirrel friends. Also, see me posing with my duck friends here.

Moda VoxBox

Ready for a night out in Rimmel London mascara, lipstick, and lip liner

I received the Moda VoxBox from Influenster in perfect timing, just as it was getting really chilly here in Chicago. Hot chocolate, moisturizer, and tissues are necessary when it’s zero degrees outside. Here’s my review of all the products I received complimentary for testing purposes...

Rimmel London Scandaleyes Rockin Curves Mascara: This mascara’s curved brush is perfect for reaching all of my lashes. 

Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick: I have been wearing the Nude Delight shade just about everyday since I received it. It’s moisturizing and is a great daytime color for my skin tone. 

Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lip Liner: This is a transparent lip liner that prevents lipstick from feathering. I like that it’s transparent, so there’s no mismatched color that often comes with lip liner. 

Puffs SoftPack: I love how soft this tissue is and the packaging looks really cute in my bathroom.

Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer: This lotion is moisturizing, without being greasy and has a fresh scent. I will definitely purchase this in the future. 

Resource Natural Spring Water: I love that this bottle is big enough to last through an intense workout. Learn how you can get Resource delivered here

Hair Food Moisture Hair Mask: This is my favorite product from the voxbox. I have been using the hair mask in place of my normal conditioner. It makes my hair soft and shiny, and the delicious honey-apricot scent lasts even after my hair is dry. 

Swiss Miss Simply Cocoa: The best part about this hot chocolate is that it has only five ingredients! The dark chocolate flavor is absolutely delicious.

Courtesy of HiCustom.net, I was able to design my own AFA iPhone case. HiCustom also has other customizable products including t-shirts and coffee mugs. My new case is great for protecting my phone during a long school day.  

These pictures were taken right before I headed to class. I’m wearing my favorite Paige jeans which have become part of my school uniform. They’re so comfy and are perfect for tucking into over-the-knee boots.
