2012 in Review

To say this year was great is a total understatement- I can easily say that 2012 was the best year of my life! I challenged my self with so many firsts that I think this post would be a mile long if I went through everything(ok, this post got long but it's worth it I swear!), but I want to share a few of the my favorite and most meaningful moments with without further adieu!

1. New beginnings: A lot of you may not know, but this time last year I was laid off from my job, leaving me in a place of confusion and shock. I picked myself up, determined to not let it get the best of me and viewed the world as my oyster. Previously working in the fashion tech space I knew I was in the best possible place for my career options and took that positive state of mind to land seriously what I consider to be my dream job. I am surrounded by such inspirational, passionate, fabulous people, that I am truly lucky to share my days with them! Go team Poshmark- excited for what 2013 has in store for all of us!
2. Starting Fashionablee Me-duh! Always working in fashion and contributing to blogs for years, it was only a matter of time for me to take the bull by the horns and start my own blog- it seems like just yesterday I shared my very first post with you, or got featured in the New York Times Fashion & Style Section, challenged myself to style up a turban, discovered the sock bun..and a ton of other fab memories!! It's been such an experience getting to be creative and document something so dear to my heart, not to mention all the fabulous people I have gotten to meet and connect with! I look forward to sharing even more fun, and of course fashionable things with you in the next year! 
3. Wedded bliss: This year I added a brother to my family! My sister is now a happily married woman and I was so lucky to be apart of her special day! From helping plan a surprise proposal, to becoming the maid of honor in a dream beach wedding, I am so excited and happy to have spent this memorable time with our families! So much love!

 I only see 2013 being even more amazing, and I can't wait to spend another year with you all! From the bottom of my heart, thank you for supporting me, you have all touched my life and I can't wait for 2013! 

Cheers to a sparkly, and safe New Year! XO!

Shimmer & Shine

Sweater: K-mart // Jeans and Necklace: Forever 21 // Bag: Rebecca Minkoff // Shoes: Boutique 9 // Ring: Chloe Rose // Lipstick: Wet n Wild

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! Since I had no plans to crash anyone's Christmas this year, I spent some quality time with Tula.... I also baked, cleaned, did laundry, went on long walks--pretty darn relaxing actually! But I think everyone is still in holiday mode getting ready for NYE, so I thought I would share a simple, yet festive look with you all. I love anything with some sparkle (don't we all?!), so when I saw this glistening beauty at K-mart while doing some holiday shopping, I had to scoop it up--and at only $10--I got it in a basic black too! Paired with nude pumps, a studded bag and a red lip- perfect for happy hour with a friend! 

I guess it's safe to start my birthday countdown considering it is on SATURDAY! 3 days and counting...

Giveaway announcement: The winner of my Shop Compliment Giveaway is Dana of Vivaciously Fab and Blue Vanilla! I will be contacting you today! YAY!

Rainy Day Style

Jeans: Forever 21 // Jacket: Old Navy // Boots: Marshall's // Pashmina: Bought in Israel // Umbrella: Target // Lipstick: Wet n Wild

Lately I have been waking up to rainy, cold, weather which has been putting my layering skills to the test (not to mention making it challenging to get out of bed to take my dog for a walk). So on this particular on again, off again rainy day I wanted to wear something comfortable enough to get around in the rain, but still have that fun flare- queue polka dot skinny jeans. These have definitely been a favorite of mine ever since purchasing and I know they will be so fun to style up for the spring too with contrasting bright colors (duh!). 

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week getting ready for the holidays!

Driving in Style: Chevy Spark

Hi friends! Today I have a little bit of a different type of post! If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you may have seen the awesome folks over at General Motors lent me the new Chevy Spark for the week! And it wasn't just any Chevy Spark- the Jalapeno Green Chevy Spark- how perfect right?! My love of color definitely goes beyond my wardrobe- one of my first cars was actually bright yellow, so driving this around made me oh-so-happy.

There was so much to love besides the color of this car, the compact size made it easy to maneuver, fully equipped with On Star (used to make some calls while stuck in traffic), color touch screen with MyLink radio & USB port, and one of my favorites- seat warmers (I know, I know- most cars have this but none that I have ever owned). Last week when I happened to have the Spark, it was pouring rain and I felt nothing but safe driving around. 

Here are a few more pictures of my week with my nugget (my friends and I had many nicknames for it-it was just too cute).

I never realized how much neon green I owned until I started driving the Spark! 

My Rebecca Minkoff Tote was a perfect match!

I naturally offered to drive my Poshmark ladies to lunch- plenty of space for all four of us!

All in all I was sad to say goodbye to the Spark! Thank you again to the whole General Motors team for letting me cruise around in style all week long!

New Do'

Pants: Tory Burch (Found on clearance for $30!) // Sweater: Goodwill // Shoes: DVF // Necklace: Forever 21 // Bag: Michael Kors via Poshmark // Lipstick: Revlon // Rings: Gorjana & Chloe Rose Boutique

I'm baccck! Sorry for the almost week long hiatus- last week had thrown for a loop between working late, and celebrating Poshmark's Birthday mid week. But I am back and finally debuting my new hair here on the blog!

I had been going back and forth with the idea to cut bangs again, and now that my hair finally has grown back out after chopping it all off two years back, I thought it was the perfect time to spice things up! I'm definitely one that likes to change up my hair and hadn't done so in over a year so it was  time for something new and fresh. While we are on the topic on new- how amaze are my new DVF pumps? I got them at the outlets a few months back and finally broke em out to wear and I am obsessed!

Here's to a great new week! <3
