Hi everyone!  I can’t believe there is still snow on the ground.  Ugh.  Is anyone else as over it as I am??  I’ve already started shopping for spring and I couldn’t be more excited.  There’s just something about warm weather and light clothes that makes happy. (:  Particularly last week, I had a terrible time trying to shoot an outfit outside because it snowed and rained the majority of the week. ):  I have so many ideas for photography and outfits for spring and I can’t wait to share them with you all!

Love,

Nicole ♡

Hi everyone!  This sweater is from last year from the Bethany Mota collection at Aeropastle.  It’s still one of my favorites.  I have some similar ones linked above for you that I think are just as cute.  In particular, I love that one with the hearts on the elbow patches.  Also, you have to check out the Glossy Balms from Loreal!  They have such rich color for a gloss.  I have a few of them and they are a new recent favorite of mine.  I’m wearing the one in “My Baby Doll”.  By the way, this is my first pair of Keds and I really like how comfortable they are!  I currently have my eye on these Kate Spade New York Keds (and these) (and these).  How beautiful are they??  Time to start saving! (Hah)

Love,

Hi everyone!  Yes, that is more fresh snow on the ground.  Winter is never ending right now!  ):  At least it’s an excuse to wear comfy sweaters and scarves for a little bit longer right?  I’ve been in such a pink lipstick kind of mood lately, so when I got a manicure this week I went with this OPI “I’m Indi-a Mood For Love”.  I love being able to show off my favorite color in small ways like this!  Hope you are all staying warm wherever you are!

Love,

Hi everyone!  In honor of Valentine’s Day I wanted to do a look featuring my favorite color, pink!  I think this would be a great look for a day at the office.  It’s professional, but it shows you that you have a fun and fashionable side too.  I actually wore this outfit (with a neutral lip and my hair in a bun of course) to an interview for an internship with a public relations office a week ago.  I ended up getting the position!  Every job has it’s own interview outfit criteria, but for someone looking for fashion PR, this outfit was a winner for me, so maybe you should try it too! (:

Today I was nominated for The Liebster Award!  I know it sounds fancy, but it’s actually just a fun way of getting to know other bloggers.  The Liebster Award is awarded by bloggers to other bloggers.  It was created as a way to discover new blogs. Once nominated, you answer a set of questions, come up with your own, and nominate other bloggers. If you’d like more information, you can read about it here.

I was nominated by Tori of The Champagne Edit blog. She’s a fellow style blogger and as I found out, we have so much in common! We share a love for The Little Mermaid and have no problem laying in bed all day to binge watch Netflix (my kind of friend!)  We are both twenty somethings and I look forward to getting to know her more in the future!  Follow her blog and her Instagram!

Here are the questions Tori asked me to answer:

1.) What has been your favorite purchase as of late?
2.) If you could live anywhere, where would you go?
3.) What is your favorite pick-me-up?
4.) If money wasn’t an option, what fashion item would you go buy right now?
5.) What’s your favorite thing to do when you’re bored?
6.) How do you find inspiration for new blog content?
7.) What made you sit down and start a blog?
8.) What’s your biggest goal for 2015?
9.) Do you consider yourself an introvert or extrovert?
10.) What’s the biggest lesson life has taught you lately?
11.) Who is your celebrity crush?

1.) My favorite recent purchase was my destroyed white jeans from Target.

2.) If I could live anywhere, I would probably live in Hawaii.  I went on vacation there a few summers ago, and it was the best trip of my life.

3.) My favorite pick-me-up is usually a cup of tea.  I love the tea from Teavanna especially.

4.) If money wasn’t an option I would love to buy some Valentino shoes.

5.) When I’m bored I love to watch new shoes on Netflix.  Right now, I’m binge watching Don’t Trust the Bi*tch in Apartment 23 and it’s hilarious.

6.) I carry around a notebook with me wherever I go.  I get inspiration from everywhere.  Magazines, advertisements, Tumblr, and Pinterest are great inspiration go-to’s for me.

7.) I always wanted a way to connect with other people with my same interests.  Blogging about fashion (something I’m majoring in at university) was the perfect outlet.

8.) I would love to get more organized and be neater.  I’m actually kind of a messy person haha!

9.) I think I can be a little bit of both an extrovert and an introvert.  Sometimes I can be really loud and energetic, but other times I can also be quiet and to myself.

10.) I think one of the biggest life lessons I have learned is to stop caring what other people think.  It’s hard sometimes, but it’s something you have to learn to do.  Not everyone is going to like you, and someone is always going to have an opinion that doesn’t match your own.  You have to keep being yourself, because if you changed everything about yourself that everyone else didn’t like, you wouldn’t be you.

11.) Steven Amell is hands-down my biggest celebrity crush right now.  Does anyone else watch him as Oliver Queen on CW’s Arrow?  How could you not have a crush on that body? (:

Now, here are the 11 bloggers I’m nominating for The Liebster Award!

1.) Andi at Our Beau Monde
2.) Lisa at Fairy Tell Fashions
3.) Jessica at Fleur of the City
4.) Amanda at A Cookie Named Desire
5.) Hailee at Hailee Taylor
6.) Ally at City Style Life
7.) Linzi at Life with Linzi
8.) Monica at Let it Be Worn
9.) Tara at Fancy Little Momma
10.) Kayla at Miss Kay’s Couture
11.) Annie at Zevyjoy

Now nominate some bloggers of your own!

Nominees, your questions to answer are:

1.) How did you come up with your blog name?
2.) What are your favorite things to do?
3.) What’s your favorite movie?
4.) What is your favorite item in your closet and why?
5.) Which store is your favorite?
6.) Where do you get inspiration for blog posts?
7.) Why did you start blogging in the first place?
8.) What are your resolutions for 2015?
9.) Who are your role models/fashion icons?
10.) What are your future career goals?
11.) What are your blogging goals for 2015?

Link back to my blog somewhere in your post so I can read your answers! (:
