Positive VIbes Tuesday

Sometimes I wish I had a beer taste on a champagne budget but it is quite the opposite for me unfortunately. I sometimes get more of a buzz going shopping than I do on cranberry and vodkas. One positive thing about this though is that it brought me to realize a career in retail is something I am made for and will never get tired of as long as there is something new to learn.

Getting back on track I am trying to motivate myself to save up so that I can do things I really want to do in the future, like travel the world. The only way I can see myself starting to do this and stopping the bi-weekly shopping trips is to make a vision board for myself of all the places I want to visit. Portugal is at the top of this list because I would like to get to the lands where I am from, the Azore Islands. I would also like to visit many places in Europe as I have never been to the country before. All I have to say is anything is possible when you set your mind to it. Go after the things you've always wanted to achieve, even if they scare you!

I am so happy to annouce my first blogger style challenge that I was invited to enter! The posts above are my looks I created on Polyvore about how I would rock Vegas at the Cosmopolitan Hotel. From day time lounging by the pool, to dinner with a dress code, and clubbing afterwards! The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas looks like the perfect place to spend your 21st weekend and decently affordable as well!!

For my #MyCosmoStyle I decided to go with a look that has one staple item but changes drastically as you go from meal to meal, club to casino, and everywhere in between! We will start with the morning where you can go from laying out to a nice lunch at Va Bene Cafe .

Getting gem stone gifts from my momma makes my week!!

Layer up! Tis' the season for hot apple cider, pumpkin picking, and infinity scarves. I am actually getting excited for the change of seasons and holidays to start rolling in,even though I'm not particularly a fan of the cold. This week I wanted to style a look inspired by the Free People Mountaineer trend. I choose to use my favorite Free People tapestry jacket as a focal point of the look. Along with this super soft, cable knit, short sleeve black sweater, and printed scarf. The Mattisse boots finish off the look with a cozy pair of socks and Current Elliot jeans. What is your favorite fall trend to come out this fall and why??

Best Online Shops

This site is amazing for going out clothes at an amazing price. You get 50% off your first order when you sign up for emails and they always put out their new arrivals at 30% off. Don't be expecting to get a garment that lasts you for years but do be expecting something you get lots of compliments on!

If you love Jeffery Campbell and being an independent #GIRLBOSS you can find everything you need and want on this site. Things from classy vintage pieces to modern punk rock inspired crop tops and leather tights. I've blogged about this site quite a few times but it deserves every bit of promotion I've given, their customer service is amazing if you ever have an issue.

This UK site has decent prices for being over seas and also offers a 15% student discount. They offer everything you could ever need from basic interview/work pieces, to wardrobe staple sweaters, and fashion forward pieces. The shipping rate isn't horrible either for being an overseas company,

Daily Adventures

Haven't done one of these posts in a hot minute but have still been doing my fair share of daily adventuring. From cruising to Bermuda a few weeks ago, traveling back and forth from State College and Philly, and NYC really quick for Basscenter VIII there have been many photos I have captured and haven't been able to share so I want to show some of those moments today.

I also had the pleasure of going on a hike with my pup, Bruiser, on one of my days off this week. It's days like today when I forget about the city part of Philadelphia and get lost in the beauty of nature. It is so easy to get caught up in our busy lives of class, work, and other commitments that we often forget to take time to get grounded with life and what really matters. Here's my perfect fall go on a hike day outfit, flannel of course.
