Things I love: being creative with what I have and not having to buy things I don't need. So of course, using fresh pine for the winter / holidays is THE BEST way to decorate. Not only is it simple, but it's free (wink wink)...just go outside and do a lil snippy snippy and you're well on your way.
I chose to make potted arrangements but you can also make bundles to hang. Using various greenery is also a plus. I was able to find several different types, including Boxwood, Pine, Arborvitae and Spruce. All the different textures and slight color variants create interest and makes your arrangement more unique.
Now about some added color...Pom poms! You already know I was going there. These babies have been my easy-peasy go-to for pops of color for yeeeeears. They never fail me. They're quick to make, inexpensive and won't shatter like ornaments. There are many ways to make these guys...I have the plastic craft store pom pom makers in many sizes and they serve me well.
You might be wondering what to put everything in. I like to reuse my summer flower pots. I have them in red and chartreuse which is perfect for Christmas decor as well. If you don't have any flowers pots available, you can grab a plain terra-cotta pot for a few bucks and spray paint it. A vase you have sitting around is a great option too. Hint: mini versions would make great holiday party/ Christmas dinner table toppers.
For assembly, I arranged the greenery in layers and packed it in full so nothing would fall out. The longer stems are in the back and shorter in the front. I kept each kind of greens together so they formed their own layer. Other elements you can add in are pinecones (you can glitter these, you can spray paint these - go nuts) or some of your tree decor. I used some sparkly snowflakes and sparkly accent stems.
Christmas is quickly approaching but this is so quick and easy you can still make it happen. It looks beautiful as indoor decor or outdoors on a porch. What a lovely holiday gift it would make as well!
Enjoy & Happy Holidays, everyone!

Hey guys, it's been a minute...but finally a new outfit post! It's been busy with the business (check out all the Glam & Grace goods here) and moving back to my house in Akron.
As you can tell, I'm still all about that black and white game. Just know I'm always either covered in coffee stains on the white or lint on the black. There's no getting around it, it's who I am as a person.
These bellbottom pants from Zara are so unique with their hi-low hem. I mean, yeah...sometimes they're hard to walk in and I trip but that's just the price you pay for awesome pants. I'm looking forward to pairing them with chunky sweaters for fall. Also, can we talk about these Jeffrey Campbells? Silver details, straps & lucite heels...whoa. I'm bummed that it's getting colder now and I wont be able to wear them soon. More outfit details below and hopefully more looks coming soon.

If it's mega color you want, go with the Good Vibes palette. It's definitely more of a saturated rainbow look...of course, still with that metallic good-good in the middle.
For an all over illuminating highlighting glow, grab the Speckled Illuminator. The various gold tones will have you looking oh-so glam.

Trying to transition into spring over here! Let me tell you, it's been a crazy couple of months since launching the Glam & Grace makeup line. Never have I more desired (& maintained) a wardrobe full of simple pieces I can throw on. The idea of a minimal color palette & not a lot of "necessary" layering has made finding something to wear thoughtless and quick. I am so annoyed when I have to wear a certain tank under a certain top...so I rid myself of all those type of styles. Now, my look is already defined when I purchase the items in my wardrobe so it makes getting dressed every day easy. Of course, you know I like to have my statement accessories to mix it up.

So. Many. Things. This outfit is super jam packed with details, trends, texture...all of em. But it works. A balanced crazy. The simple Black & White color palette acts as a mediator or sorts. It's like "marled knit crop top AND a striped fluffy scarf? Surrrrre, go ahead". The silver studded details of the skirt unify the western vibe of the hat & jewelry. By the way I love the look of the skirt, cute and fits well... but can a girl get some stronger snaps? With my high level of wardrobe malfunctions, a snap up skirt with wimp snaps won't cut it. (if you can successfully wear this skirt, please, give me tips)
