Hunter's (my current obsession)

December 31, 2014














 If anyone asked me over the last couple of months what was one thing that I really really wanted! I would say Hunter Rain Boots! One because they are oh soo soo british and I absolutely love that feel! But also they looked so comfy and just an easy on the go outfit maker! (totally a weird way of describing it). But then my  absolutely huge obsession with pinterest I started to become even more obsessed! I would sit around and pin and pin looks with the trademark boots! Truth I think rubber boots are making a huge return and I could not love it more! Below are some links to some great places for inspiration when it comes to all things Hunter! Hope you all have a fabulous New Year, be safe and Ill see you all next year! Lots and Lot's of Love!!!!

December 30, 2014


I'm so not into waiting 7 years for my nail polish to dry, it's not a fun task.
With the luck I have I ruin them!

Mia 2 is the best thing since slice bread!

I Use this usually 2 times a night to really clean my face, I have seen insane
results with this beauty tool!

Lovin my new set up!!!

I read about this product on The Coveteur saying that it would help with the
frizz and flyaways that winter brings. Yes, I can say it does everything it says
I use it when I give myself a Blowout! 

Dry Bar is my obsession and this product is one that I love more than anything!
Pricey But so worth it! Plus the smell is bomb!

A thicker more hardcore moisturizer I always had a love for it, this product does everything it says it does, and doesn't skip a beat  
Ipsy set me this and at first I wasn't sure if I actually would like it and I can say that I do!

Can I just say how much I adore the Dry Bar's Products!!!! Perfect set of products 

I am so obsessed with these products to battle the cold and odd weather conditions of Pennsylvania! Without these products I wouldnt be Lost but I definitely would not know what to do with myself. So these products below are my current December favs in beauty! What are your favs and rituals you have right now for this cold crappy season? Anyway, have a wonderful day Guys and happy Tuesday!!!!

5 Fall essentials every closet should have

November 12, 2014

Being that I only am a senior in high school and you probably think I wear the same jeans and tee with an occasional knit. Well I can't say I do that, however I learned that you really need to have basics in your closet to build up your wardrobe. This post is dedicated to those girls in college or high school that want to expand their wardrobe without breaking the bank! This post is even dedicated to those who don't really know what to splurge on or not. 

1. The white tee-  Hello!!! one of those every season essentials in the summer you can throw it on with a cute pair of cropped jeans, then in the fall throw it on with a knit sweater and a scarf and you're ready to take on the day. I always go to Target to purchase my white tee's because they get ugly really fast

2. The Knit cardigan- one of my favorite thing's I own, basically I splurge on this item because a quality made one can really last forever and stay nice for a very long time. I even wear mine to bed at times because of how soft they are.

3. The Good old Blue Jeans - Okay, yes Jeans are the best invention but I sometimes get so sick of wearing them. I always wear American Eagle for two reasons, one my age group has always worn American Eagle, and two I'm from Pittsburgh and the brand started here. But this is an item I would Splurge on because cheaper jeans tend to rip easily and you see yourself throwing them away. So invest in a pair you know you can keep for 5 years and that would go out of style.

4. The Leather Handbag- Something that can totally be a splurge or not, Hello tj maxx has adorable bags. Find something that complements you and fits your style. Remember to buy something that if you're in a hurry you can grab and go.

5. The Knit Scarf- Something that everyone during the changing season should have, I have at least two. And I just take mine and tuck it into my jacket or have it hanging out great for those chilly nights when your out with friends. Definitely something you shouldn't have to splurge on.

Fall Wear

September 25, 2014






Hi Everyone,
In honor of the first week of fall I felt that I had to bust out some cool fall look, here in PA it's starting to get extremely cold very fast. Safe to say it's time to put away the shorts and flipflops, at least I can say its time. But I absolutely am loving this suit jacket thats cut out into a vest it's so perfect and you can layer or just wear it like I did. This day it was freezing but yet I wanted to try to look chic and simple for school. Hope I achieve that look I was going for? Anyway I hope you all are having a Fabulous day so far!

Transitioning into fall!

September 7, 2014








           Happy monday everyone, hope you all are having a good start to your week. I am currently LOVING these awesome pants I have on from H&M they are just so cute and so comfy. I have worn them about 5 times since purchasing them 3 weeks ago. Transitioning into fall is kinda hard september is that month for some of us is hard it's still warm but its still in a way getting colder. We can wear shorts but we feel like we should be maybe throwing those to the back of the closet. It's still nice out and we don't really want to get into the darker colors of fall. I feel ya, it's so hard transitioning into fall just like its hard transitioning into spring.  
          For this day I really was feeling black with a pop of color which happened to be my heels. Even though it wasn't a huge over popular pop of color it still was something the shoes had silver black , grey and pink, what a mouthful haha. But By wearing all black the shoes helped to pull the whole entire thing together,and make it look clean and I think sophisticated. As always I thank you oh so very much for reading and I hope you all are having an chic and wonderful monday!!! 
xoxo,

Wednesday coffee: Fall boots

August 20, 2014

Shop my favorite places for fall boots!
Macys
Nordstrom
Piperlime
DSW
Dillards 

With fall approaching us so very fast it's time to start focusing on all the new trends and how to pull those into our personal everyday style. Fall is my favorite time of year I love wearing boots and heavy knits all you need to add is a starbucks salted caramel which comes back in september (can we take a moment to celebrate)!
  But with all seriousness I made this post to show some styles that i'm really digging for fall, I know distressed leather and the traditional horse riding boot is really popular with my generation (18 and college student). But if you look at those adorable peep toe Steve madden booties over in the fat left which are available on Piperlime right now for a steal of $100. Another thing I am really loving is the Hunter Rain boots at first I wasn't too sure if these were going to be something that I would actually wear. But after seeing that Pink Peonies had about 5 pairs, and then saw them in some lookbooks I re thought the whole rain boot thing. As for my last favorite trend it has to be the whole Eggplant purple color, it's a great fall color I love it end of story period. What are some of your favorite boot trends for fall??

     As always thank you so much for taking time out to read this. I hope you all are having a fabulous day so far!

Casual Friday

August 18, 2014


On friday's patches and I go to starbucks together and I get him a little sweet treat! He always likes
to do some selfies to send to his mommy!

I always love love love to go out and buy fresh flowers and then make arrangements
and put them throughout the house. It has to be one of my favorite things and they
last so long! (well because I usually put them in direct sunlight)

This day I it was so cold and I hate being cold especially in AUGUST! So I was feeling blue
and hello I love to rock my Jack Rodgers! 

When Fridays come and I am oh so lucky enough that I don't have to work. I enjoy getting to make flower arrangements or cleaning some part of my house or even getting to spend some time with my poochie (patches or #sirpatchesfox). So on this Monday I really wanted to post some of the things that I do on an typical Friday though pictures. I even threw in a little ootd, it has been do chilly here at home so I'm all about fresh and summerish even though it's so cold!
As always thank you so very much for reading!

What's in my Carry-on bag?

August 4, 2014



Well Hello guy's I have missed you all so much I have been pretty busy the last week in half. When traveling comes around and then family thing's on top of that, it makes it really hard to get back to blogging and doing some of the thing's I truly love!

With that being said your probably slightly wondering about my new look to my blog! Exciting news i'm working on finally giving the look I want and the image I want to Coffee and a Blonde. This is who I am and i'm excited to represent me through my site. 

Sooooo Enough of that and more to the "what is in my Carry-on bag", I have been wanting to show you the things I take with me on long train or car rides. And some of my favorite snacks. This bag is a oldie but oh so goodie from Rebecca Minkoff, and not to mention it held all these things you see here. Unfortunately it is not sold anymore so sad! When it comes to traveling I have to have snacks fishies are my fav and so are roasted almonds total yes. Now I always have a small little bag with ibuprofen a lip balm a nail file etc.  Of course you have to have some form of entertainment for those long trips I love Instyle and a good teen vogue and always my laptop! When it comes to traveling always pack smart and be prepared for however many hours the trip may be! Thank you so much for reading and happy happy Monday!!!
