5 Fab Puffer Coats Under $50


 




 


 
Shop the look:


Just checked with SIRI and were expecting snow at midnight tonight! Yeh!
 I'm actually so excited because the snow is my favorite part of winter. If we have to be cold lets at least have something pretty to look at..right??! Some people hate the snow but I just LOVE it. I've been stocking up on coats cause the winter sales have started and puffer coats are my new faves! I have seen a ton of celebrities rocking the puffer coat trend and just being honest with you girls ... I did not think I could pull it off. AT ALL....
Celebs exhibit A:
Kendall Jenner

When I first saw puffer coats I just thought I would like a giant marshmallow BUT once I tried them on I was obsessed! You can balance out the weight of volume on top with something more basic and slim-fitting on the bottom like skinny jeans. I have never owned a red coat before and I love this bright pop of color and it's only $39!! BUT just in case red isn't your thing, I also linked a bunch of other fab puffer coats -- most under $50 below and a few at other price points.  

The best part of all is that these puffer coats will keep you SUPER TOASTY in the cold weather.

Best Shows To Watch On Netflix Right Now


If you're looking for me I am probably in my bed watching a show I am currently obsessed with on Netflix. Don't judge me but I have never watched "The Walking Dead," until now. I just started season 1 this week and I am already on season 4 = I CAN'T STOP. It's a very addictive show and honestly my favorite part of Netflix is that I can watch a show and not have to wait for commercials. Truly I don't even watch popular tv shows like "This Is Us," because I am too impatient to wait for the commercials to end or to wait for the next episode. HAHA -- so as a result I watch everything late! I get a lot of questions about my Netflix obsessions so I figured I would share MY LIST OF FAVES: (In no particular order)

1. OZARK - They better come back with a second season cause I am MEGA OBSESSED with this one. It follows the story of a financial advisor who moves his family to the Missouri OZARKS where he must launder a ton of money for a drug boss. It is so good. Yes, start watching this one tonight!

2. THE WALKING DEAD - Ok, I am currently on season 4 and I CAN NOT STOP. So addictive. So edge of your seat. Now I know why they have been winning all those awards for this show... I mean it is good!

3. STRANGER THINGS - OBVIOUSLY THE BEST SHOW EVER! If you haven't seen it. Today my friend, today!It's a science fiction horror series set in the 1980's. 

4.The Crown - I am obsessed with all things ROYAL (Meghan Markle the whole prince harry marriage of course has my attention) but this is all about Queen Elizabeth and her life becoming Queen very young. If you like history, royalty, or just plain good acting = this is a win!

5. The People vs OJ Simpson -- I remember in middle school when our teachers turned on the school tv's just so they could watch the OJ Simpson verdict. WOW. This series really had me on the edge of my seat because we know the story but seeing it played out in real time is very interesting.

6. House of Cards - Well I am totally devastated that this show was cancelled due to the whole Kevin Spacey drama. But for what it is worth -- the show was fantastic! It is all about political corruption and the things Frank Underwood will do to ensure his success at becoming President.

7. The 100 - Ok this one starts out really crazy - almost silly - and then gets mega addictive. I say don't judge this one until you get past the first couple episodes when it gets really good. The show is set 97 years after a nuclear war has destroyed civilization. A spaceship housing humanity's only survivors sends one hundred juvenile delinquents back to Earth, in hopes of possibly re-populating the planet.

8. The West Wing & Friends - Classic shows, obviously Friends is the bomb and The West Wing was a fabulous show based on the inner workings of the White House.

9. Gossip Girl - So, I literally never watched Gossip Girl when it was on TV. Not sure why... I just missed the Gossip Girl train-- but I LOVED it when I finally binged the whole show. It is about the wealthy kids of New York (socialites) who are constantly written about by a blogger type known as "Gossip Girl."

10. Breaking Bad - I haven't watched it yet --but it's on my list! EVERYONE says it is the best show ever.

Oh, and here are a few movies I also really enjoyed:

Bright - Netflix Original Movie - I loved it. Will Smith is the best. And I completely loved the concept.
The Amanda Knox Story - The docu series on the murder of her roommate and if she did or didn't do it. Totally captivating!
Making A Murderer - Another docu series worth the watch!

Alright so those are my obsessions -- send me what you are watching!
I am always up for a new show recommendation...

I am off now to watch The Walking Dead!!! #nightmares

TOP 5 FAVORITE PURCHASES OF 2017


1. TATCHA CLEANSERS

Raise your hand if you have ever fallen asleep with your makeup on! <Raises hand> Yup! Me too! I was a total Neutrogena wipes girl at the start of 2017 but they never REALLY made my face totally clean. I discovered Tatcha this year and it is a game changer / a little high priced but trust me when I say WORTH EVERY PENNY. I am in love with the cleanser!! It's a four step process and my face feels like butter in the morning. Plus the entire line was created and based on the Geisha of Japan! It's too legit.

You can try out the sampler set here for $59 (Gives you a little bit of everything.)
The others are listed below// And if you only get one: The Cleansing Oil is the MUST HAVE!

 STEP 1
Purify skin with this lightweight, antioxidant-rich cleanser that melts away even waterproof makeup.

STEP 2
Polish skin to a jewel-like luster with this creamy, water-activated exfoliant of nourishing Rice Bran and conditioning Pearl.

STEP 3
Soften, plump and hydrate skin with this fluid of 98.7% pure anti-aging superfoods that makes all your skincare work better.

STEP 4
Moisturize with this anti-aging gel-cream that forms a protective veil of hydration and plumps away the look of fine lines.


2. These Spanx Faux Leather Leggings

ULTIMATE SKINNY LEGS!


Without a doubt the best leggings I have ever owned in my life. They hold EVERYTHING in. Some people say size up because they are so snug. I am usually a small in leggings so I sized up to a medium and they fit perfect! They make your legs look like hot fire!

Okay so when I moved to PA and people said it would be cold I had no idea what I was in for. BUT NOW... truly I'm ready! Thanks to these boots my toes have never felt warmer! The plush faux shearling lines the insulated boot and its waterproof! Stylish and warm = a win!
