Ringing in 2016 in Mexico | Paris | Florence | Anniversary Stay-cation | Beyonce concert with my Mom | Meeting Ice-T on the streets of New York | Hanging with Oscar the Grouch at Sesame Place | Turning 30 | Seeing the Holiday Lights in Dyker Heights | Happy Holidays from the Cavanaughs

This year much like every year, it flew by with a wink of an eye. 2016 personally was a busy year that was filled with memories. Hands down the best of 2016 was traveling to Pairs and Florence. Also meeting my niece. Moving to Bay Ridge into a bigger apartment. O and turning 30.

I rang in 2016 with a very relaxing celebratory way in Mexico! We will be ringing 2017 in a much different way this year. The husband and I will be low key, spending the evening at home with a special dinner, watching the ball drop from the comfort of our couch with a toast at midnight. How ever you plan on spending the New Year Year, I hope it's a happy and safe one.

Here's to another year!

Coat: Abercrombie and Finch (so so so old) | Sweater: Aritzia | Jeans: Madewell | Boots: Zara | Bag: Kate Spade
Beanie: Topshop | Sunglasses: NYC Street Vendor

I don't know about you guys, but I'm so ready for the Holidays to be here. I'm ready for a break from work and school. The end of the year is always so busy, work, school, life...I'm ready for it to be quite and calm on Christmas Eve...or Christmas Eve eve as I have that day off. This weekend was spent baking cookies, finishing up final projects for school, and doing some Christmas shopping.

Jacket: H&M | Sweater: Loft (similar style here) | Leggings: Aerie | Boots: OluKai | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff
Scarf: c/o Super Dry (similar styles here)| Sunglasses: Feather's Boutique

Sometimes putting on pants seems more like a chore more then necessary. I've been living in leggings more and more on the weekends. This look was super cozy and perfect to walk around the hood to admire some of the Holiday decor. I picked up these Aerie leggings the other week and I'm so happy I did. I need MORE of them. I'm not kidding when I say I might go back and also get them in black. I love that they are thick and tight.

Holiday Gift of Giveaways: Elf Cosmetics

Start the new year off right with bright and healthy skin thanks to ELF Cosmetics. I've been a ELF Beauty Squad member for a year now and I can attest that their products are legit. They might not have the sticker price of high end beauty products but they do have the quality to stand next to them and other drug store brands. Thanks to being a Elf Squad I'm giving ONE LUCKY READER a chance to win some of my favorite ELF products.

This Stocking Bundle in includes:

1x Hydrating Bubble Mask -- This product makes washing your face so much fun! It's like pop rocks but for your face. It foams on your face, then crackles, feeling and sounding like pop rocks, then you wash off once all the bubbles pop leaving your skin clean.

1x Pore Refining Brush and Masking Tool -- Get your face looking fresh and clean with this beauty tool. No need to worry about transporting dirty and oil from your fans to your face. Simply dip your brush into the Bubble Mask and smooth on evenly. You can also use this brush to apply foundation.

1x Hydrating Gel Mask -- The winter months can leave your skin dry and dull. With the Hydrating Gel Mask it will leave your skin smooth and hydrated. Unlike other products it won't leave your skin feeling oily and gross.

1x Illuminating Eye Cream -- Between working full time, going to grad school part time, hitting the gym somewhere in between there, and blogging...sleeping full 8hrs aren't happening most night. The Illuminating Eye Cream has been my saving grace on helping to eliminating those dark circles under my eyes and giving me bright healthy looking skin. Even on those 4 cups of coffee days.

1x Beautifully Bare Satin Lipstick in Touch of Berry -- If there's a beauty product I LOVE and can't go's lipstick. Even on my bare face days I have to put on a touch of lipstick. ELF's beautifully bare lipsticks are my go to for the those days. Just a hint of color that's perfect for a bare face.

1x Smudge Pot Cream Eyeshadow in Wine Not-- It's the Holidays after all! I love dark rich colors for Holiday parties. This eye shadow pot is smooth and light with a perfect rich color for your Holiday celebrations.

ONE LUCKY WINNER will be chosen. The winner will win a ELF bundle prize of full size products of: Hydrating Bubble Mask, Pore Refining Brush and Masking Tool, Hydrating Gel Mask, Illuminating Eye Cream, Beautifully Bare Stain Lipstick and a Smudge Pot Cream Eyeshadow. Contest ends Sunday 11th at midnight.
