Weekend Recap: New York City, Rockefeller Center & OOTD

Happy Tuesday!

I think I'm coming down with a cold. :( 
I'm blaming New York and their dirty subways. Haha

This weekend my fiance, his brother and my brother went to New York City. My brother has never seen the Christmas lights in New York City, so it was exciting for him, and I was excited to show him!

Here's a recap of the weekend:

On my lunch I went to Rite Aid to pick up two items based on a friends recommendation and a blog post I saw. 
I picked up Revlon's photo ready translucent powder, and Revlon's Lip Balm in Stand Out.  

Stand Out swatch. (More on these two items later)


A snap shot of my new scarf from Old Navy that I wore all weekend!

 My fiance & I on the bus!

Look how pretty the ceilings were decorated in the bus terminal!

On Canal Street we went to a place for hot chocolate, not because we were cold, but because we needed to rest our feet. But it was delicious!

On Canal Street they had boxes full of $2 sweaters - new in packaging! I picked up some for myself, my mom and my fiance's mom. 

We stayed at the W in the financial district. It was a very nice place to stay, I highly recommend!

My outfit for the day:
Merry & Bright sweater from American Eagle, Old Navy jeggings, and Ugg boots.

Just enjoying my view!

Later that day we went to Times Square.

This is my excited face yet scared face to conquer Rockefeller Center. 

We also went to the Hershey's store but was highly disappointed, not much there!

This is me relaxing on the side of Hershey's. I made a purchase in M&M. I love that store!


We went back to Times Square because I wanted to go to Inglot and my fiance's brother wanted to take my pictures. 

Our last stop was Inglot. 
I cannot wait to share my haul from there & my experience!

Have a great night I'm going to try to rest up.

Black Friday Haul Part 1 - Old Navy, Michaels, Forever 21, American Eagle, Target, Bath & Body Works

Happy Thursday!

I am finally sharing my haul from Black Friday but I am splitting it into two posts because some of the items haven't arrived in the mail just yet. 
I only picked up one "makeup" item on black friday from Ulta. I didn't even order from Sephora! I know it's amazing.
I want to start a new skin regimen so I thought trying this set and it was only $10. I haven't tried it yet, I will report back.

Surprisingly, I walked in Victoria Secrets picked out what I wanted, and left. It was a nice experience. I picked up one of their $25 deals and this pretty red thermal.
 Thermal was $26.50

Crew neck was $25

Bath & Body Works was Buy 3 get 3 Free on the entire store.

I picked up new candle holders. One is a gift from my mom.

 I have a miniature version of this candle holder but couldn't pass up buying the larger one to fit the 3 wick candles.

These items are from Michaels.

 For my Christmas cards I picked up these scrapbook items. They had 50% all original priced scrapbooking items.

How adorable are these nutcrackers?!

 I picked up a snowglobe and a ornament. I want to make my own snowglobe this year and give it to my fiance for Christmas. He loves snowglobes.

Of course I went to Old Navy - 50% off everything! I'm thinking of returning the black sweater for the cream color version.

 I have never tried the Old Navy jeggings. I tried a pair on, loved it so much, I went back for a second. They were only $15!

The black dress I've been wanting but have been waiting for a good sale. 

 I love this print on the scarf. I plan on wearing it to New York this weekend. It's similar to a blanket scarf, just not as wide.

These boots finally went on sale at Target on Black Friday. I ordered them online and got them for $31.99. Still expensive but I've been wanting them since October, so that's how I'm justifying it. hehe 

I ordered this shirt from American Eagle with 40% off. I plan on wearing it this weekend. It's so cute!

I ordered some items from Forever 21.  (I apologize for the bad photo)

I haven't tried this PJ set on, but would like to wear it Christmas morning. It was only $12. 
Does any one else purchase new pj's every Christmas? 

I got this sweater in their clearance section for only $17! They had 30% extra off their clearance prices. 

Scarf was $7 and headwrap was $3. Both are steals. And I love how big this scarf is!
Have a great night!

Wedding Wednesday: Mr. & Mrs.

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

I don't have much of an update besides two recent purchases.
And they both don't have anything to do with the wedding really, besides the mere fact that I've been eying them up and finally purchased them.
Both purchases were made on Black Friday.

These luggage tags were purchased at Michaels. 
They were on clearance for $5.99 and I have an extra 30% off coupon. I'll take it! You can find them here but they're out of stock. If you want them I would try your local Michaels craft store.

The only other item I bought was from Joann Fabrics on Black Friday. Their Christmas ornaments were 60% off that day. You can find it here but it is also sold out. I'm sorry I'm really striking out today.  

 This is all I have for Wedding Wednesday this week. 

Have a great night!

Weekend Recap: Office Holiday Party and Christmas Crafts

Happy Monday!

Is any one else getting hit with snow the next two days? 
We're expected to be hit with 3-6 inches of snow within the next two days here in Pennsylvania. Guess who brought their laptop home with them to work from home? Guess who's hoping it will actually snow? This girl right here! Haha


Friday was an emotional day for me, I don't want to discuss it but I'm still upset about it. I'm trying to get passed it. Friday was my holiday office party at work. I don't know how I made it to it, but I did. My fiance got dressed in his suit and forced me to get ready as well. And I'm glad he did, I needed a night out.

This is literally the best photo I have of us, after the holiday party and at Red Lobster. Ugh

I typically like to get the seaside trio but I just wasn't up for it. I got popcorn shrimp and scampi.


Saturday was very low key for me. I stayed in the apartment and caught up on YouTube videos, something I haven't done in a while. 

I also need to use this Sephora coupon. Still deciding what to get! Any suggestions?

Saturday night when my fiance came home from work we cooked dinner and watched a movie, and while doing that I decorated our gingerbread houses. 


Another day I stayed in all day. It's just what I needed. 
I decorated the chalkboard for Christmas.  

I took pictures for my upcoming Black Friday haul. 

While I was going through some of my stuff I stumbled upon these two birds I picked up at Target a while back. They were $5 each. 

Sunday night I made more of my Christmas cards for people. This one is for my fiance. I am pretty proud of this one. I even made it into 3D which isn't clear in the picture but I'll be doing a separate post about my Christmas cards. 
Have a great night!
