8 Must-Have Inexpensive Pieces to Get your Through the Holidays and Beyond

With Thanksgiving 2015 a thing of the past, I’m getting in the Christmas spirit! The colder air and dinner invites are both arriving, and whether you’re trying to figure out what to wear to a family get-together, work party or New Year’s soiree the below eight options will undoubtedly get you through the holiday and winter seasons. Even better, each of the below, from Oasap, is under $35!

Women's Inexpensive Clothing Options for Holidays and Winter


Classic Turn Down Collar Toggle-Front Hooded Coat, $34.99: While I love it with the dress, I’m showing, how cute would this gem be with jeans or wide leg trousers. A versatile inexpensive coat or jacket is always a winter necessity!

Vintage Bow Waist Bubble Dress, $24.99: This navy dress with a vintage-vibe is perfect for evenings out. I’m envisioning it with my pink pumps and layers of gold jewelry – gorgeous!

Favourite Solid Long Sleeve High Neck Sweater, $20.99: A girl can never have too many cable knit sweaters during the cold weather season. Pair this with jeans and boots, or leggings and flats for a cozy, comfy yet chic look!

Floral Print Cropped Blazer, $26.99: I know we tend to bring out our floral pieces in March or April, but seriously! This blazer is too perfect to not wear this holiday season. Adorable!!

Irregular Tasseled Printed Pullover Sweater, $21.99: A perfect layer for traveling and easy to wear with all of your favorite winter pants and coordinating boots. Honestly, it looks so comfy, it’s also the perfect piece for an after-dinner nap:)

Heathered Christmas Tree Batwing Sleeve Sweater, $17.99: Remember when Christmas sweaters were just ugly? Not anymore…Oasap has the CUTEST Christmas sweaters, perfect for a casual night in or for the perfect outfit to don on Christmas day.

Autumn Open Front Hooded Mohair Cardigan, $20.99: I adore this vest for layering – and the fact that it has pockets makes it even better. The cute hood makes it over-the-top-darling!

Navy Grey Block Scarf Shawl Cape, $23.99: Whether by plane, train or automobile, this is an essential travel piece to help fight the temperature fluctuations. And no worries, if you’re not traveling, you’ll wear this for anything and to everything all winter and spring long.

I hope all of you had a fabulous Thanksgiving and if you’re brave enough to be out in it, survived Black Friday with minimal scarring:) Happy weekend loves!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!! I LOVE this holiday – I honestly look forward to this meal all year long (starting the day after Thanksgiving), and, mostly, I just love my family:) Any day I can spend with them is a good one!

So, remember in this post I eluded to the fact that it snowed all day Saturday? Well, no joke. It snowed all day Saturday. But by Sunday, look how beautiful!!! Now that it’s pretty much winter, it’s important to make sure you have all of the essentials, like this cute hat, glove and scarf (not shown) set I’m wearing below. How perfect are these for the cold weather season? I’m not sure what I love more, the snowflakes or the fun pom-pom on the hat. Beyond cute! The set, from Simplicity is just $19.99 and comes in multiple color options – link available below!

November Beauty Box 5 Review: Your Basics Don’t Have to Be Boring (Amen to That!)

Happy Thanksgiving Eve Eve loves! I can hardly believe we’re to this time of year already, but here we are. And being that we are here, I have the November Beauty Box 5 review all ready to go. I have to say, I have been so so impressed in recent months with their selection of products, and the November box was no different. What I love most is the fact that each and every month, they give me products I can use and that I truly enjoy trying. I meannnn, has anyone else wanted to try something but didn’t purchase because of the what-if-I-don’t-like-it mentality? Because, simply put, we’ve gone through the “I-can’t-believe-I-just-bought-this-and-I-hate-it-when-I-could-have-spent-less-for-a-Pumpkin-Pie-Blizzard-and-enjoyed-it-way-more-blues.” That can’t be just me! See the goodies from November below:

The Coziest Clothing for Snow Days!

Soooo, guess what??? Here in the Midwest we had our first snow fall of the year. It snowed. And snowed. And snowed a little more! All. Day. Saturday. I love the first snow, before I’m sick of the cold and tired of shoveling and financially stressed because of the ginormous heat bills (I like to stay warm) :) It’s honestly so so beautiful…for now (ask me in February and I might not be so positive). I seriously used Saturday to to catch up on a million things and wore my coziest clothes to do so. Enter these ca-razy cute (and affordable!) snowflake leggings from Simplicity. Trust me when I tell you they are the BEST leggings for cold winter days pretty much in the history of, well, ever. Not only is this snowflake print pant adorable for the season, but the fleece lined winter wear is beyond cozy. I can lounge in them, cook in them, sleep in them and then throw on a pair of boots and run errands in them. So yeah. Meet your new favorite winter legging.

Tech Lover? Beauty Buff? Check out these Gift Options from Ulta!

With Thanksgiving practically days away, it seems everyone is also starting to think Christmas. For you ladies that love electronics AND beauty, did you guys know Ulta has a whole sweet little shopping-zone devoted to you? Yep! It’s their Beauty Techie gift guide section and I for one am loving it! I have a roundup of my favorites below, but be sure to check out all of the great options, so you can easily drop a hint or two to anyone who might be putting a gift for you under the tree. Or, of course, if you’re shopping for a favorite friend, sister or loved one who’s made their way to your nice list, they will undoubtedly appreciate any of these selections!

Ulta Colalge

Clockwise from Left:

Color Me Automatic Foundation Applicator Universal Starter Kit, $54: This sweet little electric beauty tool mimics fingertapping at 15,000 times per minute. The result is said to yield a long-wear airbrushed looked.

Hot Tools Pink Glitter Gold Curling Iron, $39.99: Pulse technology and high speed heat-up help curls last all day, but let’s face it, I want this for the pink glitter and 24k gold surface. Beauty perfection!

Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X, $449: Permanent results all from the comfort of your own home? Yes please! This is also the only FDA-cleared laser available for home use.

Bellacore babyBelle Bodybuffer Kit, $295: There couldn’t be a better time to start using this kit…twice a day in the winter will help you become bikini ready come spring :) :) :)

Michael Todd Eye Eraser Anti-Aging Infusion Duo, $89: Featuring 3-in-1 sonic, ionic and thermal delivery technology all of which help to penetrate deep into skin and with time helps to reduce under eye circles, under eye bags and the appearance of fine line.

Chi Ultra Chi Glitter Sweet Hair Dryer, $89.95: Not only is this adorable, it uses a ceramic heater which helps to produce moisture and shine while negative ions reduce frizz and static electricity . Plus… It’s. Glitter.

Chi Ultra Chi Glitz and Glamour 1” Iron, $89.95: Ok, so, noticing a pattern? I like glitter, I’ll own it. BUT, in my defense, this chic little bad boy features tourmaline ceramic plates for even heat distribution and a ceramic iron that adds moisture and shine, while reducing frizz and static electricity. Boom. See, it’s not just pretty.


Hope your week’s have been wonderful…we’re half way through this one, only a couple more days until I’m in full-on chill mode!
