Now that winter is in full swing, I spend a good portion of my day all bundled up and swathed in multiple layers. Lately I’ve been obsessed with big, bold statement earrings to add a little zing to my cold-weather ensembles, and I think I’m hooked. Below are a few sparkly baubles that I’ve got my eye on.

New York Fashion Week is one of my favorite events that I look forward to each fall – not so much for the fashion shows (although those are great too!), but for the street style. People-watching in the city is already one of my favorite pastimes, so seeing everyone strut their stuff for Fashion Week just takes it up a notch and makes it that much more fun. To get in on this year’s action, I left the office early one day last week and headed over to Moynihan Station with my camera in tow.

For me, Fashion Week is all about having fun and trying out new looks. With that in mind, I went for a groovy retro-inspired print with modern accessories (including these awesome studded pumps from the lovely folks at DSW). Other folks must’ve gotten the memo as well, because right off the bat I noticed a very heavy 70s style influence. Check out those bell bottoms!

I enjoyed rocking various straw hats all summer long, so I was excited to see that exaggerated fedoras were also having a moment. Also, doesn’t it seem like stylish folks rarely travel alone at Fashion Week?! Talk about #SquadGoals!New York Fashion Week Street Style

As for my favorite outfits, there’s nothing I love more than bold colors and prints paired with killer heels. Below are three fashionistas who nailed the look perfectly.New York Fashion Week Street Style

All in all, I had a blast soaking in the atmosphere and chatting with my fellow photogs about the looks we loved. Speaking of which… whose style do you like the most, and what trends are you looking forward to this season? Sound off in the comments below!

Natural Beauty: Valentine’s Day Makeup Look w/ Walgreens

Hey, peeps!

As I alluded to last week, I recently ventured down the Walgreens beauty aisle to pick up a few items for creating my Valentine’s Day look.  Check out my latest video for a few makeup tips and a step-by-step breakdown of how I get all glammed up for night out on the town.

And for those of you who don’t have time for the video, here’s a quick rundown of the Walgreens products I used.

First up was Garnier’s 5 Sec Blur skin primer.  I’d only used primer occasionally before, but I’m now a HUGE believer.  It glides on easily and instantly made my naturally oily skin feel smooth and soft.  You can use it with or without makeup for a more even skin tone.  Now, this stuff won’t perform miracles, but I did see a noticeable improvement in my pores and skin texture when I applied it.

This might be my new favorite mascara.  I mentioned in the video that Rimmel Scandaleyes is one-third the cost of my regular costs, but upon further investigation it’s more like one-fifth of the price (even better!).  In any case, I love the mod vibe this mascara gave me.  It lengthens and separates like a champ with NO CLUMPING!

When it comes to naturally rosy cheeks, maybe I was born with it, or maybe it’s Maybelline’s Master Hi-Light blush.  I’ll let you guys decide.  The color looks a lot lighter in the photos, but the #30 Coral I purchased is actually a much darker pink shade in person.  It has a subtle pearlescent sheen that I love and makes your skin glow when you put it on.

The beauty aisles at Walgreens are stocked with just about everything a gal could want. It took every ounce of willpower not to fill my basket with even more goodies!
