December is here and as we head into the beautiful New Year here are my top monthly picks/obsessions! Happy Holidays and to an extra Happy beginning of the New Year! I will also have a special post by Wednesday of my Must Have Holiday Gifts!
1: The perfect holiday look vamp dark lips and elegant jewelry modeled by Miranda Kerr. Image courtesy: Miranda Kerr by Miguel Reveriego for Vogue Australia April 2013
2: Obsessing over the new jewelry collection from Chanel and this white ceramic Ultra diamond ring would make any girl happy. It’s the perfect combination of elegance and uniqueness. This for sure a dream ring and in my opinion makes for a perfect unique engagement ring. Also available in black that is just as beautiful but my current obsession is anything in white.

3: Not sure why but my flat sporty shoe obsession continues with these black and white checkered classic vans $46.95. These would go great with a black and white monochrome day look and are for sure on my shopping/gift list. Image courtesy: Nordstrom.com
4: My ultimate love for 2013 and going into the New Year is Balmain, white lace, and white on white looks. Here is a runway look with all three of my obsessions together from the Balmain 2014 Collection. He is again just killing it every season and with every collection…just stunning! If I could have it my way I would wear Balmain outfits every single day even to the grocery store. Image courtesy: Balmain.com
5: Ok I have loved Flowerblomb perfume for over 6-7 years now but for some reason my family tell me they don’t like the smell. Not sure why they say that but I think fragrance is different and personal for every individual person so I say who cares what other people say if you love it wear it!!! The smell is strong but I love it and it reminds me of a special time in my life. This holiday white bottle with a bow makes for a great gift and lets not mention that it has been a best seller for a long time now so ha! Runs small to very large $50+. Image courtesy: Nordstrom.com
6: Always losing and looking for new sunglasses. I have lost countless designer sunglasses and I am currently loving most of the sunglasses from Dior and Stella McCartney especially oversized cat frames. Image courtesy: StellaMcCartney.com
7: Since I am loving flats more and more now I love these cute ballet shoes from a great company called Tieks. Here is why they are so special: From Tieks Website (Tieks are designer flats that you can fold to fit in your purse or wear all day, every day. Each pair is individually crafted and made from the finest Italian leathers. Our signature Tiek Blue stripe and Tiek Blue non-skid rubber soles accent each pair.) I love that they have a unique look with blue soles that will keep you from sliding over marble floors at restaurants or maybe that’s just me…..but these are super cute, comfortable, and fold over to throw in your bag. They come in so many different colors and patterns and just added a vegan line which I love and not to mention they have The Gavrieli Foundation that helps empower Women entrepreneurs from all over the world!

8: Currently reading “It’s not how good you are, it’s how good you want to be” and obsessing over Paul Arden. An influential author of several books on advertising and motivation including “Whatever You Think, Think The Opposite” and “It’s Not How Good You Are, It’s How Good You Want To Be” and a former creative director for Saatchi and Saatchi at the height of their advertising career.
