festive af

every year, my girls && i get together irl for christmas.. we exchange gifts, catch up, have dinner and drinks. but the best part, to me, is when we have our baking extravaganza and make all kinds of holiday sweets!

this year, it’s cookies and chocolate pretzels.. both of which have very low thresholds on difficulty. in years past, we’ve made some things that have definitely ended up nailed it (not our train, but it totally could’ve been!), but this year i’m confident that we can make things cute and pretty and exactly the way we want it~

our spread may not look precisely as nice as this glam affair set of holiday foods does, but! it won’t be for lack of effort! it’s going to be so much fun && i cannot wait to see my besties tonight. seeing them puts me in such a christmas mood that i can’t help but feel holly and merry and festive af!

a little sparkle

to me and bibi, nothing says the holidays quite like obscene amounts of sequins and sparkle!

a little sparkle

the shine of the stars in the sky, the twinkle of lights on the tree, the glimmer of shimmery fabrics catching the light just so.. december is definitely *sparkle season* and it’s wonderful!

autumn look book

fall is officially here! rejoice rejoice~ the time for dark, rich colors and cooler weather, for apple cider and pumpkin spice, for layering with boots and scarves and tights and all that fun stuff!

since i’ve been a little absent this month (eh heh) i decided to put together four looks for you that, to me, just *scream* autumn!

and let’s start off with shades of brown…

tan ‘n’ brown can sometimes be boring if it’s too much, but not wearing it all over and mixing in some other shades works well to keep it from being too samey. tall boots, like these ones from reign, go *perfectly* with this shorter tee*fy dress (that’s out @ n21) and when topped off with a coppery sweater by foxes it not only is in a warmer, fall-appropriate palette.. but it looks super cute, too!

since the leaves are all starting to turn gold, i thought a deeper, darker yellow color might be nice for fall, too. yellow isn’t a color i wear often, but when matched with a pair of nice, neutral blueberry jeans (that are part of this month’s luxe box) && some nude colored reign pumps.. it’s not at all overwhelming or harsh.

rich garnet red is a color that is, in my opinion, the epitome of fall. it not only reminds me of the leaves changing colors, but of apples and cinnamon too. and you can *totally* get away with wearing shorts, like these from blueberry, in the autumn by layering ’em up with tights (from atomic @ c88) and some super cute flats (by reign, also @ c88). having longer sleeves, like this sweater from tres blah (which is part of this month’s luxe box) and even topping it off with a cute infinity scarf like this one from erratic will keep you warm even with bare legs!

and lastly, wearing grey ‘n’ black is appropriate for fall too.. like with this long emery top i grabbed @ uber, and black suede pants from ison from luxe box this month.. but it doesn’t need to be drab if you add in a few extra accents of color. it’s like that old cliche, matching your shoes to your bag, and i decided to wear these reign pumps && this c’est la vie purse both in brighter red to break up the darkness of the rest of my outfit. and i think it looks casual and put together without being dreary.. like the weather can sometimes be in autumn!

so! four looks, all fall-themed in style && color. i love this season both for the weather and the food, but most importantly.. for the fashion!

superfan

over the years, i think i’ve made it pretty clear that i love me some sailor moon. it’s so nostalgic for me.. i grew up watching it every single day after school (toonami ftw!). i love the story, i love the characters, i love the art.. and it is still, to this day, one of my favorite television series ever.

of course i love the main character, but.. i’ve always identified more with other scouts. mainly jupiter (because she was tall && brunette like me irl) and mercury (i thought she was awesome because she was so smart!) and welp..

superfan

sometimes, i just can’t resist the urge to indulge in a li’l cosplay. :3

the crystal heart festival is an event that i about *had a fit* over. so many cute things, all in one place, catering to my inner anime nerd.. it’s like i died and went to sailor moon heaven. i squealed (literally) over these atomic sweatshirts, and vivi had some luck in the cosmic dust purse gacha and won me the mercury bag… and thus, i was pretty much obligated to become one with ami mizuno.

if you’ve haven’t been to crystal heart and you’re as big of a sailor moon fan as i am, then gooooooooo. you won’t regret it! your inventory will be bursting with sailor scout goodness and it’s more awesome than i can even put into words!
