So Club Monaco has an extra 30% off and I went a little ham and got myself this vest and skirt. There has been so much on my plate lately and I felt like nothing is going to feel better than a solid "TREAT YO SELF" day. So I did and I thought I should share it with you all as well! I paired it with a fitted turtleneck (on sale too) OTK boots (also worn here in NYC) and nude accessories. You can shop the look below! Have a wonderful weekend babes! It is a rainy weekend here in LA so I have a feeling I will be bundled up with a book and some vino. Care to join?

Let's Talk Skin Hydration

If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat, you may have noticed I am a bit of a skincare junkie. I truly believe in the importance of investing in your skin. We spend so much money on buying all organic and nourishing ourselves from the inside (which is the priority), but I also believe in treating topically. I believe in having a strict regimen that you follow every morning and night. Which the old me would have laughed and said NO way am I going to spend the dollars or the time doing such things. Well, until I started noticing a difference in my skin over the years and I was not too happy with how my skin looked and felt.

Some key things; proper exfoliation, antioxidants and hydration. I will write down my full year skincare regime for you soon, but for now I want to focus on one area: hydration. I lived in both NYC and Southern California this year and travel quite often for work, so my skin TRULY HATED me this year. I threw on random creams and moisturizers which in turn would just break me out and I was SO frustrated. As I am ready to embark on another NYC journey for fashion week, I am very excited to say I have tried out the Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Serum and Moisturizer and I love them both equally and even more together. So far, no crazy breakouts or reactions from the formula.

With thermic shock, sudden changes in temperature and humidity, it can diminish skin's natural hydration capacity. What Hydra-Essentiel does, is it quenches thirsty skin and boosts skin's ability to retain precious moisture for all day hydration. If you are like me and are tired of your skin looking dry and weathered, then I suggest you try out this duo. It does not hurt and it works in any environment, which for me is a top priority. I hate having to travel to different places and bring a different serum and cream suitable for that environment. I want to invest in something I could use anywhere. Follow me along on Instagram and Snap @savvyjavvy to see how my skin is improving in the coming months!

I have been crushing on ruffles lately! I truly feel like they can make any top or dress into a statement piece. They are romantic, chic and a little bit out loud. All things I love! Speaking of romantic, I tried a new fragrance by Ralph Lauren and I am totally in love with it! Have you tried Midnight Romance? I figured it is a new year, so why not try a new perfume? What are you planning on changing this New Years?

You honestly cannot go wrong with a peacoat purchase. Especially a black one , like this one I got from French Connection. You can wear it with anything in the winter. You can add layers under it if you are living in colder temps or just wear a tank dress like this with some booties if you are living in coastal weather. I personally like to get a more dressed up version of a peacoat so I got this French Connection one with gold zipper details on the sleeves and an edgy zip detail across the front.

I also fell in love with this Michael Stars dress because it is friendly on my post-eating food baby. Is it just me that despises fitted dresses? I LEGIT cannot deal with them I have major food allergies and the majority of food gives me a swollen belly and I look 6 months pregnant. This dress that I found literally hides the food baby, and if you are in your first trimester, it hides your little baby too. I honestly need this dress in every color and length. I tagged options for you loves below so you can get this food-baby-friendly dress in your life!

I spent the majority of my afternoon shopping around Lido in Newport Beach with my photographer and friend. We stepped into Le Labo and Planet Bue and went a little ham!

The Best Peppermint Bark Recipe For The Holidays!

This is an easy peasy recipe you can make and win everyone's approval at the holiday party! People will think you spent HOURS making it, but really, just 20-30 minutes to prep it and an hour to let it sit. After that you just break up the bark and place them on and edible peppermint tray then place the whole thing on a pretty tray or in cute tin (like this one. SO cheap yet cute!).

What you will need:

Peppermint Bark:

8 ounces semisweet chocolate. I used the Bakers brand. Break these up into 1 inch pieces.

4 ounces dark chocolate. Break them up into 1 inch pieces

12 ounces of white chocolate (Bakers brand) and chop into 1 inch pieces.

2 teaspoons of peppermint extract

15-20 round hard peppermint candies- crush them

9x13 baking dish

1 saucepan

1 heatproof bowl

 

Peppermint Tray:

60-70 round hard peppermint candies

1 9inch cake tin

Wax paper

 

Let's get started:

Get a baking dish (I used this one) and line it with aluminum foil. I used a 9 x 13 dish but maybe next time may consider using a smaller size to thicken the bark! Make sure the shiny part of the aluminum is up (so facing you).

Heat 2 inches of water in a sauce pan on low. I personally start on medium high and bring it down to low and let it sit for a couple minutes on low before adding my heat proof bowl to the top. Add that heatproof bowl and do not let it touch the water. In the bowl, toss in your semisweet chocolate and keep stirring until it melts. It will take 8-10 minutes. Now add in half of your dark chocolate and let it melt. Pull the heat proof bowl off of the saucepan and wipe off the water (from the steam) off of the bottom. Begin to add in the remaining dark chocolate you have and keep mixing until it melts. If it is being stubborn, place it on top of the steamy saucepan for 10-20 seconds and keep mixing. Take it off, add in 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract and mix for 30 seconds and wipe off the bottom of the pan. Now it is the fun part. Pour in the mixture into your baking dish and spread it evenly. I lightly tap the bottom of the dish on the counter to make sure there are no air bubbles!

After 10 minutes (as you want the darker chocolate to settle a bit), begin the melting process for the white chocolate. Repeat the same instructions as above. Once melted, add in 1 teaspoon of peppermint extract and mix it in. Now layer the white chocolate evenly on top of the dark chocolate in your baking dish. Quickly sprinkle your crushed peppermint candy on top and lightly press them in. Cover in aluminum foil and let it sit out to harden. Usually takes an hour. Once it has hardened, you can break the pieces into the size of bark you want.

Now let's move on to the peppermint tray. This will take you to the next level of being a Pinterest queen. My girlfriend Neda shared this recipe with me and I HAD to make it after I saw how cute hers turned out. Take a round cake tin and place wax paper on the bottom. I cut the wax paper to fit perfectly at the bottom of the tin. Place hard candies one inch apart and put in the oven for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Pull it out and let it cool down fully before placing your bark on it. I personally like mine extra melted and semi burned, but I highly suggest you do not do that to maintain the pretty striped on your peppermint edible tray.

Enjoy! Happy holidays loves <3

I have an immediate crush on sweaters with details. The details that get me the most excited are cut outs and as you may have guessed RUFFLES! They are so feminine and chic, I truly cannot get enough of them. Then you add on the color blush. Even if it were just a blush colored sweater I would be happy. BUT RUFFLES AND BLUSH PAIRED WITH RAW EDGE JEANS!?? Oh and cute booties that match the Chloe bag. DONE AND DONE! <3
