See you all next year!

This year has been crazy - new city and a new apartment! And on top of that I started my own fashion and food blog! Thanks to everyone who supports and follows my blog and see you all next year!

Wishing everyone a wonderful New Year!

Outfits to furnitures - pinks and grays

Today's post is inspired by modern furniture by modani. I have put together a selection of their furniture for my good friend who is expecting a baby girl. I love how grey and pink go together so I decided to show the colors' compatibility through fashion and furniture design. Let me know what you think!

I started with the silver chesterfield sofa from their modern sofas collection, which is now on sale from $1,190 to $990.00. 
Zebra Rug - $540. This amazing faux zebra skin rug will definitely catch your attention when you enter the room.
Nikkia Vase - This vase is now on sale for $5. This ceramic vase adds a color to the room. It will look great on top of the 3 drawer changing station I chose.
Hudson Crib - This 3 in 1 pine wood crib comes with adjustable guardrails! 
It can be used for newborns to toddlers.
Queen of love chair - This is my favorite out in this collection. It is feminine and is perfect fit for my friend since she is having a baby girl. This also comes in multiple colors and can be used indoors and  outdoors!!
Pink Pillow- This pillow matches wonderfully with the grey queen of love chair and the sofa. This costs $25.
Bihar Pillow - This pillow will definitely bring extra dimension to the room set. 

There's a first time for everything - Mezze Game Combat Boots.

Happy Wednesday! It's almost Christmas time and I'm getting excited for everyone in my family to get their presents! I have been busy with new exciting things in life and that's why I haven't posted. One of my followers today has reminded me that I haven't posted and they were right so I put this on quickly and reviewed it. Let me know what you think! 

Vest: I got this best in XS and I think the length is perfect for my height. It's thick enough that it is great for cold weather. This vest is also available in bohemian red, warm bisque and black. Warm bisque is my other favorite color besides this. I happen to get that color also and plan on reviewing it on my next post.

Shirt:  This shirt gets a little itchy so I wear a tank top under it. I like the patch on the elbow because it doesn't get wrinkly when I washed it unlike my other  leather patch from other stores.  This shirt also comes in white but I chose this color because white gets dirtier quickly. 

Shoes: These are my first combat boots ever and they are my favorite! They are comfortable and goes with most of my outfits. I sized down and got a size 6 because I find the 6.5  to be a little too big even though it's the size I usually get.  These are also available in dark grey leather which I also like but  I found it hard to match anything in my closet. I also got these on sale which was a plus. 

Necklace:  These necklace is heavy. I ended up removing it after taking the pictures. The two things I like about this is the shape. It is beautifully done. If you look closely, the stone is purple and it goes great with lighter tops like cream, white or light brown.
