Happy Friday! After a long busy week, it's finally the weekend. What are you all doing?

This week we're featuring a sleek, city chic look in honor of the upcoming NYFW! Are any of you going to any shows or events? Much of the pieces in this look are modern and unique. It seems to be the direction fashion and interior design is going in. What do you think of the modern style? I love the silhouette, interesting lines, and color palette- navy, white, and periwinkle.

How To Wear A Lace-Up Top

With the carousel of fashion, trends often come in and out but sometimes completely new trends arise. It's always fun when designers think of something completely new! Lately, that new trend has been the lace-up detail. Whether you're going out for a night on the town with the ladies or just running errands on a random Sunday, you can dress up or dress down this style. 

At a first glance, I loved this new trend but could I really wear it? It seems a little revealing but the celebrities and bloggers that were seen rocking this trend didn't have that raunchy vibe at all. So as I like to say, it's all in the way you style it! Read on to learn all about how to wear this trend appropriately.

This weekend I attended a Laura Geller event at my local Ulta Beauty store. It was such a blast! It was an informal event, where Laura Geller representatives were in-store doing make-up demos. I saw it advertised weeks ago, so me and my friend signed up and booked appointments to get our make-up done. What a treat!

Lately my current make-up has been bothering my eyes and not blending properly, so I was definitely in the market for a new product. But it's so hard to choose beauty products when I'm just strolling through the store! So many of you give such great tutorials and reviews but it's still tough to choose the products that are right for me. It can be overwhelming. This event was the perfect solution and it came at just the right time!

You know that phrase 'I don't know how she does it!' I often wonder that about a lot of you. It's so tough to balance everything when there are so few hours in the day and when we wear so many hats! For me, it's balancing being a full-time career gal with blogging and friends. Some of you even have kids on top of all of that! So today, let's put our heads together and get the conversation going.

Technology makes life easier in a lot of ways. Here are my 5 Favorite Life Hack Apps! These are a few of the lifestyle apps that I use on the regular and trust me, they're major time savers that will allow you to use your spare time to do the things you really care about.

Friday Favorites Featuring Bodysuits + Link-Up

Happy Friday, friends! What's everyone doing this weekend?

An emerging trend that originally dates back to the 90's is the bodysuit! I remember wearing them back in Kindergarten, but not quite like these. The modern-day take of this trend is hot and even borders on risqué. It's trendy, fabulous, and perfect for a weekend night on the town! What I love about bodysuits is that they are form fitting and give you that perfect looking silhouette. Plus, you can pull off that tucked-in look without having to adjust it a million times.

Here are my favorite bodysuits and our weekly link-up!
