Business Chic with Sequins

Hey Loves!
I felt inspired to throw together this quick post last minute.
To me there is nothing more feminine than a woman in pair of sleek pants with a matching blazer. I love this iridescent sequin top..I've had it for years and probably wore it twice. I also love these earrings..I think they match the top perfectly. Braids will once again be huge for spring/ I added a rope braid for extra sophistication.
Wearing pink makeup is getting me inspired for Valentines Day..soOo stay tuned for my next post ;)

Quick & Easy DIY Valentines Day Jars/Vases

Hello everyone!!!
So my favorite holiday by farrrr is Valentines Day..always has been..always will be. 
I love the romance of it..thoughtful cards for no reason..bouquets of gorgeous roses..chocolate..etc etc. Anyways..I'm also a big fan of DIY projects and this year I wanted to put my own spin on painted mason jars. I knew I wanted to do shades of pink and then make them look old/used. So I picked up some paint and accessories from Michael's and then got some sand paper from my dad's garage and had some fun. I wanted mine to be a little tacky and overdone because most V-day decorations are and once flowers are in them..they'll look adorable so who cares!
 soO yeah! Enjoy<3
(p.s. please disregard my gross nails in some of these shots..literally peeled of my gel manicure right before i started)

 Everything I used..
I mixed these two acrylic paints to achieve the 3 shades..

1st coat..
2nd coat..
 sand them down as little or as much as you'd like
 ready to accessorize 

Ta Da!

Hey Loves!
So it has been absolutely FAH-REEEZING here in NJ the past few days..I seriously can't wait to move to warmer weather in a couple years! In the meantime, I'm stuck with bitter cold winters..butttt I thought I'd make the most of it and do a blog post by this AWESOME frozen waterfall! Going here to shoot was actually the most adventurous thing I've done in a while! I had to physically climb down steep rock walls and everything was covered with ice..but once I made it down.. I was so amazed by how BEAUTIFUL it was! This waterfall is literally 2 minutes away from my house but I hadn't been there since I was little on a hike with my dad. It just goes to show that beauty is all around us..we just need to take the time to appreciate it :) 
With that said.. I hope you enjoy<3

annnd that's a WRAP! :)

New Year New Age New ME!

Happy Belated New Year Loves!
I know I skipped a few weeks of blog posts..I got caught up with family over the holidays..buttt I'm back =) Can you believe its 2014?!? I'm so excited for all that this year has to bring..I'm moving out of my parents house..I'm getting married..taking my career to new levels!..SO excited!
I get extra happy around new year because that means my birthday is right around the corner. Yesterday I turned 25..I can't believe how fast time has flown! Most people (including myself) say that 25 is like the last fun birthday..but I don't believe that anymore..I feel like I'm just starting my life and I know I'll have many more birthdays to look forward to! With that said I wanted to give you the details on my birthday look from last night. 

Hope you enjoy! <3 Kate
