Hi friends!  I picked up this faux fur vest at Target for half off a few weeks ago and I’m loving it.  When my sister first saw it on the rack, she was like, “Nope, hate it, too shaggy,” but when I showed it to her with this outfit she completely changed her mind.  What I think is great about this vest, is that it doesn’t overpower you, like some of the larger ones.  The shagginess gives it some texture, but it fits close to the body so you retain your figure.  

I paired it with my new vegan leather jeggings from H&M.  For anyone who is on the hunt for some leather pants, I highly recommend trying to find a pair of jeggings!  I tried on both leggings and vegan leather pants from a variety of stores and none fit quite right.  The pants get too bunchy and were very uncomfortable.  When I tried the leggings they just didn’t seem to look as put together as the pants.  These H&M jeggings fit perfectly, and they are so comfortable!

Thanks for visiting my blog! (:

Hi friends!  Today I am very excited to share a review of an all natural lip balm brand I tried recently and to bring you a giveaway!

A few weeks ago, I came across the Honestly Margo brand while browsing on Instagram.  With flavors like Pumpkin Cheesecake, Caramel Apple and Peppermint I knew I wanted to purchase them immediately.  I reached out to the owner to tell her that I loved that she was making natural lip balms in so many creative flavors and she offered to send them to me so I could try them out for my readers!  Additionally, we have teamed up to bring a giveaway for you guys! (:

The lip balms all have cute names to go with each flavor.  I tried Lemon (Dude), Fruity Colada (Fiona), Caramel Apple (Juliet), Pumpkin Cheesecake (Penelope) and Very Berry (Ruby).  Let me just tell you that I LOVE the consistency of these balms.  They go on like butter!  My favorites were the Caramel Apple and the Fruity Colada!  Caramel Apple One of my favorite things about these lip balms is that there are only three (natural) ingredients, they are paraben free and free of any artificial sweeteners.  Who doesn’t love a natural and safe balm?

Hi friends!  About a month ago, I participated in a 5k for pancreatic cancer.  My nana was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer about two years ago and she passed away within the past year.  It is because of this that I  wanted to run and raise donations in her memory.  

Additionally, PurpleStride.org provides you with a lot of help so you can encourage family and friends to donate (pre-set emails, your own donation page, etc.)  There is a required donation of $25.00 in order to receive a t-shirt, but anyone can come to race and support the cause even if they cannot afford the $25.00!  Since this cause was a close one to my family and friends’ hearts, we ended up raising 1,025.00, but any amount of money is helpful!  I really encourage everyone to participate in a 5k whether it be for cancer, for another disease, or just for fun!  I know I had a lot of fun with my family at this race and I think you guys will too!  

Below I have the upcoming events listed!  See if you can find one in your state! (:

Hi friends!  I hope everyone had a fun Halloween!  My boyfriend Craig and I dressed up as Bugs and Lola from Space Jam.  If you wanna see the pics you can go look at my Twitter: NicoleLauren___  (it has three underscores).  Anyway,  I love this outfit because even though its sporty and casual, it still looks really put together in my opinion!

Funny thing about this look…that sweater isn’t actually cropped!  If you have a long sweater, and you want the shirt your wearing under it to peep out, try rolling it up a little!  I tried to make the gingham shirt pop wherever I could so i rolled it over the sweater sleeves and pulled the collar out.  

Sidenote…how gorgeous does the lake look with all those autumn colors??

Hi loves!  Let me start by saying I love the gingham trend this fall!  This shirt is incredibly versatile and I’m sure you will be seeing several different outfit combinations of mine using it throughout the year.

For this outfit, I chose to wear it under a vest.  I definitely would love to invest in a few more vests this season because they really do add some extra style to any shirt.  Another lovely addition to the gingham look?  Pearls!  Pearls look so pretty against gingham.  I love anything classic, so pearls are one of my favorite pieces of jewelry.
