Unique Christmas Presents.

It’s that time of year again! Every year I always struggle with finding unique gifts for the people in my life that they will like, and this year I’ve found some really rad stuff I’m super excited to share with you.

1. temporary tattoos that actually look good. tattly_marc_johns_what_to_focus_on_web_applied_02_grande

2. the coolest chocolate bars EVER.

3. no person would not love to receive one of these water bottles. 

4. this hoodie was actually named to be the comfiest jacket ever. note: can we just talk about how there are people out there who judge the softness of jackets, what a stressful career.

5. these spoons will no doubt put a smile on someone’s face when they’re eating


Until next time,


Eleanor Calder

I love Eleanor Calder, her whole look is very simple and natural, not to mention Eleanor is drop dead gorgeous. I have done my fair share of stalking to put together a little trio on how to get her style, makeup, and hair so you don’t have to, thank me later.

PS: It’s later.

Who is Eleanor Calder? eleanor-calder1

A lot of you are probably wondering this right now. Drop your Google search page and I’ll relieve you; Eleanor is well-known for being One Direction’s Louis Tomlinson’s girlfriend, but Calder has became a style icon for her simplicity. I mean, let’s be real, if someone gets a famous boy-bander, don’t you want to look a bit like them?


Eleanor’s simple and young everyday style is filled with jeans, sneakers, leather jackets, and overalls. TopShop seems to be a store she shops at quite a bit.

Jacket: Burberry // Sneakers: Converse // Jeans: TopShop // Tee: TopShop

E style


Like Eleanor’s style, her makeup is very simple and natural. She just puts on just a bit to emphasize her features.

She said that sometimes she won’t even bother with foundation and just use her YSL touché éclat concealer, but when she does foundation, Eleanor uses the YSL touché éclat foundation. Next Eleanor sets her foundation with Rimmel Stay Matte powder and bronzes up with NARS Laguna. For cheeks, Eleanor adds color with TopShop’s cream blushers. The only thing Calder does with her eyes is mascara, and then she’s on to lips! For lips, Eleanor has said to use Vaseline with a dab of YSL concealer.



Eleanor is mostly always wearing her hair curled in a middle part. Just get about a 1” curling wand and curl away from your face in sections about the size of your ear.

Three NYE Outfit Ideas for Different Occasions

Oh, hey, remember me? I hope so! So basically things got busy and my life got crazy but now I’m back. How was your holiday season? Hope it was well and hope you ate lots of sweets! In a few short days, it will be a whole new year, scary stuff I know. Now we’re all not as fortunate to be able to party in New York on New Years and see the famous ball-drop (but if you are that is amaze).

I put together this trio of different outfits to wear for whatever you’re doing on New Years, take a look.

Night out with the girls _8587940

This dress will sure turn some heads. I have had the experience of trying this on and let me tell you it is so.dang.comfortable. No but really, it seems a bit scary from the outside, but it’s warm&fuzzy on the inside. Maybe can be compared to yourself? …or maybe not, moving on.





House Party _8541029

Yep, the classic house party. So, it only seems appropriate to dress to this event with a classic little black dress, except this dress is velvet, and, well velvet anything is rad.





Party for…one?


Who says staying home by yourself for New Years can’t be fun? Get loads of yummy food, crank up your favorite music, climb into your PJ’s, and dance like nobody’s watching except Miley Cyrus (that’s sure to make you twerk a bit, right?). Who cares if your alone, if your friends don’t have plans, invite them over, and dance together. Kiss your teddy bear when the clock strikes midnight…or your cardboard cut-out of Harry Styles.

PS: all outfits shown are from TopShop. Love ya.
