NYE Outfits

Why hello there!

It has been so long since I have made a post! The holidays are always such a crazy time for me.  Involves lots of traveling which makes it hard for me to post.  I hope those of you that celebrate Christmas had a wonderful one!! It was so nice being home with family and friends.  My brother-in-law  flew in from Denmark a week ago so it was really nice having him in town as well.  We were one giant family gathering which is always lots of fun.

I thought with New Year’s Eve around the corner it would be fun to post outfit ideas.  I know some people go all out and others do more intimate celebrations.  Here are a few different outfits, all of which I love and would wear depending on what kinda night I have ahead 🙂

Loving the ruffles and the texture of the sweater with the feminine length skirt.  I think the green is a gorgeous color and something different, pair it with some black shoes, bag and jewels and you are all set!

I love this look.  A bit more casual with the pleather pants but still super cute and festive.  I love this ruffled blouse and the House of Harlow jewlry

If you have read my blog before you know my current obsession with Rose gold.  I think this dress is so amazing and fun.  I wouldn’t wear any jewelry since the dress is so sparkly.  This would be a fun dress if you were going to a fancy spot or out in NYC

I just love this outfit.  I am so into ruffles right now on tops, and the color of this blouse is pretty amazing.  This skirt is so classy and elegant yet fun and festive.  Also these Steve Madden heels come in a ton of different colors, I am loving block heels right now too!

Do you have a favorite?

Any fun plans for NYE? What outfit will you be wearing?!

The Wonders of Rome

Ciao Bellas!

So I have been slacking (as per usual) on posting more about our Europe vacation.  Well, I was just looking at pictures and reminiscing on how amazing every part of it was.  I really loved Rome, the history in that city is so amazing.  Europe is just so old compared to the US and the buildings, structures and just overall feel always amazes me.  Here are some shots from one of our days in Rome.  We only got to spend 2 nights (one in the beginning of our trip and then one at the end) and we made the most of it.  I really want to go back and try to stay for longer.  I feel like there is just so much to see and explore!

Have you ever been to Rome?  Any tips on must-see places?!

The Colosseum was fanastic!  To think they had the ability to build this almost 2,000 years ago is so mind blowing to me!  I highly recommend taking a guided tour.  Our tour guide was so informative and made the experience that much more enjoyable!

Me on the inside of the Colosseum.  They said that from what they have gathered the Colosseum used to be painted in beautiful, vibrant colors.

My handsome hubby.  It was SO hot and sunny this day (probably around 90F) and we were dying but we were able to get some really amazing pics along the way!

After the Colosseum our tour guide took us on a nice long walk where we saw the Forum (pictured here).  Its so crazy that as you walk down the streets of Rome you will see all these ancient structures all over.  They do an amazing job trying to preserve everything they come across

The last 2 pictures are of the Pantheon.  Such a beautiful building inside and out.  The rounded dome ceiling is so magical. 

I loved this part of our trip.  I cannot wait to go back and get a chance to explore more.  I will post about our other day in Rome.  Get this, I actually found a raw VEGAN place to eat at near our hotel.  Tom was such a trooper and went there because I really wanted to go.  He really enjoyed what he got and I loved it all!

Have a great rest of the week lovies!

Autumn Colored Outfits!

Hi loves! I hope everyone had a nice long weekend 🙂

I am loving this transition time, from Summer to Fall.  I drove home this past weekend to spend time with my family.  My drive was so gorgeous! All the leaves are starting to change and it just made the drive so enjoyable!  I was noticing all the vibrant colors of the leaves and it really inspired me into finding some fun fall items that remind me of those amazing colors.  I put together a couple go to outfits, I could live in either one of these outfits LOL.

 What is your fave fall color?!

Look #1:

Fall Dress and Booties from Revolve

Hi loves! Happy Hump day!

 I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.  I am loving this weather lately.  Its the perfect temp here in NY.  Its chilly at night (perfect sleeping weather!) and then warms up to the low 70’s during the day.  This time of the year is my all time fave because I just love the clothing you can wear-and of course all things pumpkin!.  From booties to layers I love them all LOL.  Here are some dresses I think are so perfect for the fall and I matched them up with some booties that I thought completed the look.  I am really loving the suede and mule booties trend this season!  I found all these awesome items at Revolve one of my fave online shops!

Fall Outfit Look

Hi!

I do not know about you, but as soon as the mornings start to get chilly I get such an itching for Fall time! Autumn in NY is amazing. I just love the smell of the air, change in the color of the leaves, sweaters and boots, pumpkin everything and of course hot apple cider.  Since I have started shopping and picking up some new looks for this fall I thought I would put together a cute look.  I have been so in love with mule shoes this season.  Check out where you can get this cute look below!

Copenhagen, Denmark-outfit details!

Hi loves!

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend, weather was beautiful here in NY, we even got to go swimming in our friends pool!  I know I mentioned I would start posting about my trip and of course life has been a bit hectic since returning.  Finally just uploaded some of the 2000+ pictures we took on our camera.  Still working on editing them and sorting through the better ones.  I thought I would share some that I have from my iPhone as well as include some outfit details!

Copenhagen will always hold a special place in our hearts.  My husbands mother, Birgit, was from Denmark and raised right outside of Copenhagen.  She met my father-in-law and moved to the states where they then raised my husband and his brother.  Since Birgit’s entire family was still in Denmark they made yearly visits with the kids while they were growing up.  My husband was very lucky to have the experiences he did while in Denmark.  Since he had been going there pretty much every summer he was able to make such a great network of friends as well.  We would like to continue the tradition of bringing our future children there and giving them similar experiences to what Thomas had.  My brother-in-law, Adam, made his way to Denmark 4 years ago to join the Danish Army.  This was our 2nd time visiting since he has made the move, and of course he was back a number of times to the states as well over those 4 years.  Family means the world to me.  I think that growing up and sharing experiences with loved ones is important and what life is all about.  Thomas has no family in the states anymore.  His mother and father have both passed away and his brother is now living in Denmark, for what looks like the rest of his life, if not for a number of years still.  I have the privileged of being able to see my parents and close relatives by planning a weekend to drive home.  For Thomas is it a long plane ride away.  We plan on making Denmark an every other year vacation to keep a close connection with his family.  It is just as important to me as it is to him.

So with that said, this part of our trip was amazing!  I have been to Copenhagen a couple of times now, both times before were in the winter.  Now, don’t get me wrong, Copenhagen is gorgeous in the winter, but man was it cold.  I didn’t mind it too much since they don’t get the intense amounts of snow like we do in New York, but it does get pretty chilly.  The last time we went before this trip was during Christmas.  It was such a fun experience to see all the traditions and being able to spend quality family time.  This time was just so different.  We were in Denmark for a total of 14 days.  We got to stay with Adam as well as Thomas’ cousin, Christian, and his family.  Since Thomas and Adam spent most of their time in Denmark in the summers I would always hear about how amazing Danish summers were.  It was never too hot, but warm enough to make a few dips in the water.  I was excited to finally get a chance to experience the Denmark that Thomas knew so well.  With it being warmer out and sunny we got to see and do so much.  We even got to go to the bathing bridge near his grandmothers house to swim.  The same bathing house that they would swim at all summer long.  Here are just a few pictures from Copenhagen.  I plan on writing a few more entries on Copenhagen since we saw and did so many great things.  I feel one entry would not do it justice.

Jus by Julie

Hi all!

Soo happy its finally Friday! Even though we had off on Monday this week just couldn’t go by fast enough. I am prepping all weekend long to get ready for our trip next weekend!! Its finally here, I cannot believe how quick that came up on us.  So in preparation for this trip, aside from the usual gel mani/pedi, lash extensions etc., I am doing a juice cleanse this weekend!

I came across Jus by Julie while doing some research and they were having a sale on their 3 day cleanse so I decided “what better time then right before my trip to try this!”  I am very excited to start the cleanse tomorrow.  I just thought I would talk a little bit about what I am expecting from this as well as what they say they are offering and then I will do a follow up post next week on if I liked it/didn’t like it and if I lost any weight etc.

So this is a 3 day juice cleanse.  That’s right, no solid food for 3 full days, bring it on!  They had a promotion where you can get the 3 day cleanse plus 12 booster shots for free AND $30 off AND free shipping.  It came to $120 which I thought was rather reasonable for 3 full days of “food” also with the hopes of shedding some weight.  They give you 18 juices total and you are supposed to drink 6 a day.  They say to drink them about every 3 hours or when you are starting to feel hungry.  They come labeled so you know which one to drink 1st, 2nd etc. on each day.  They also said the juices will last in the freezer up to 2 weeks if you decide to not start the cleanse immediately.  I thought doing it over the weekend would be so much easier then trying to bring 4/5 juices with me to work.  So I just have to bring them with me on Monday since I will start tomorrow.

I read a lot of reviews (most were very positive) which intrigued me even more to try this out.  A lot reviews said they were surprisingly not hungry during it, they had a lot of energy and dropped a few pounds.  My hope is that I will be able to lose a couple of pounds, de-bloat a little and just overall detox myself.  After last weekend (4th of July) I feel like a detox is a good thing lol.

Jus by Julie has promos a lot on their site, the 3 day cleanse + 12 free booster shots and $30 off + free shipping (that I just purchased) is still going on with promo code JUICENOW.  If you get their emails they send you promotions as well which is nice if you choose to do it again and do not want to pay full price.

I am excited for the follow up next week, so to be continued…

Any one out there try this cleanse?? Thoughts on it, love it? hate it? results? Would love to hear!
