Stephanie's Christmas Wish List

I have some products I've been eyeballing that have definitely graduated to my Official Christmas List. I always think of Christmas as setting up for a solid new year. You gotta start strong, right?

Instead of staring at my pores for an hour every night wonderying why they aren't smaller and cleaner, here begins some product experimentation. After some research, I pulled up Perricone MD Vitamin C Serum, Pore Minimizer and Treatment to help me achieve brighter, cleaner, more refined skin.

Victoria's Holiday Wishlist

via Tis Is Style

I'm curious—do you still make a holiday wishlist? I have great memories of making a list with my two older sisters to send to Santa when I was younger. We would always ask for the most ridiculous presents, partially to tease my parents and partially because we had the smallest hope that we might find that gift under the tree.

I still make wishlists, not because I send them to my family or friends but because it's always helpful to have a few ideas. I know that it's always helpful when my roommate or sister know exactly what they need or want, whether it's the holiday season or their birthday.

10 Nail Polishes To Try This Holiday Season

via Kate Monteith

It would be an understatement for me to tell you that I'm a nail polish fanatic—I can't go days without having my fingernails nicely painted with an even coat of polish. My love for manicures and pedicures knows no bounds, which is why I'm constantly trying to acquire more colors for my palette. This season, my nail polish obsession has drawn me to ten different colors. Each one of them has either caught my eye with its alluring tint or lustrous texture. The holidays are made for rich colors—they accompany seasonal outfits so well.

What's In My Bag: The New York Mom

via Refinery29

As a notorious over-packer, I certainly didn't surprise myself when I managed to fill my large MZ Wallace Metro Tote to the brim with supplies for my baby and myself. For quick trips or when I need to conserve space, I pack a much smaller version of this bag, but here is what I bring along for a full day on the go!

I've discussed it in previous posts, but I'm obsessed with my Mz Wallace Metro Tote in Black Paint Print (unfortunately no longer available). It came with three separate bags inside and there are tons of pockets lining the walls of the bag so it's perfect for organizing. I love that it's big enough to fit everything I need but super lightweight.

Style Crush: Annabelle of VivaLuxury

Having such a busy schedule it is hard to go and just search for the perfect outfit for your occasion, so I lately I have turned to style/lifestyle blogs to do the work for me. Right now, I am style-crushing on Annabelle of VivaLuxury. A big reason why I follow her is that she links to everything she is wearing, from the outfits to the jewelry to the shoes. There are so many style bloggers out there and everybody has their own preference but let me convince you that VivaLuxury is a must read!

Imagine trendy, classy and edgy all in one. What I really like about Annabelle is that all her outfits are cohesive from the outfit to the jewelry to the makeup. Oh and not to mention that she recently got to collaborate with Diane Von Furstenburg to create a wrap dress (shown below)!

Beauty Inspiration: GuGu Mbatha-Raw's 'Elle Magazine' Look

via Hello Beautiful

This month, GuGu Mbatha-Raw is featured on Elle Magazine's Women in Hollywood issue, and her cover look is stunning. Her look was not only crafted beautifully but also toned down and simplified against the cover's pale blue backdrop. Everything about it alluded to Mbatha-Raw's natural beauty. Her little need for accessories and makeup no doubt persuaded me to open up the November issue and read further. Mbatha-Raw's cover is a flawless nod to the simple and alluring makeup look, which is why I'm looking towards it for my fall/winter beauty inspiration.
