It’s the last week of 2016 and it’s hard to believe it’s almost over! Although the holiday weekend was a nice break, it’s time to start getting back to work. With the new year coming soon I’ve started my planning while still being comfortable. So here is this weeks OOTD + Weekly Round-Up friends!
The past week has definitely been a more fashion heavy post week, but one of my favorite blogging tips post went up as well! There’s nothing more frustrating as a blogger than being in a blog idea rut. So to help I put together a list of 25 lifestyle blog post ideas! Everything from a look at your daily routine to sharing tips to help others. And for all the fashion bloggers out there, don’t worry one with fashion post ideas will be coming soon.
I’ve added quite a few new coats into my wardrobe this season, and my current favorite one is this patterned coat in my OOTD post! It reminds me of an oversized blazer, and makes dressing up any outfit that much simpler. Christmas is my favorite holiday, and I shared with you on the blog some of my traditions as well as a look at the outfit I wore on Christmas Eve. And there is also a little fluff ball that made an appearance, so be sure to head over to give it a read!
I decorated my room a little late this year, but I’m in love with how it turned out. Although simple, the gold stars add some holiday cheer to the space. And as always, there were some snaps from my plaid coat OOTD, as well as this adorable shot of my dog from the Christmas traditions post!
There have been quite a few things I’ve been trying out recently and have started to love already. My skin has become extremely dry this season, and I discovered some products from Aveda that have helped. I’m thinking of doing a post all about my skincare, so be on the lookout in January to find out the products I’ve been using! This month I’ve started wearing liquid lipsticks and they’ve become a new staple in my makeup routine. My favorite brand is NYX, and the two different kinds I like are the liquid suede and soft matte lip creams. They stay on for most of the day without making my lips feel extremely dry.
Although the past two weeks leading up to Christmas were hectic with decorating and last minute gift buying, it was nice to spend a weekend off with family. Since we moved, Christmas has become just the 4 of us, and it’s always a relaxed day with lots of laughs. Now that there is less than a week left to 2016 I’ve started planning for the new year when it comes to both blogging and personal bits. I plan to hopefully travel a bit more in 2017 and to of course keep on blogging. I’m excited to see what the year has in store!
After the holidays I like to keep my outfits causal since it’s a lot of un-decorating and planning for the new year. I always find it hard to find leggings that aren’t too thin and are more high-waisted, but this pair from Aerie are perfect! I love the color blocking at the bottom and they make working that much more comfortable. This red sweater from H&M adds a pop of color to my otherwise neutral wardrobe, and these Adidas sneakers were a Christmas present that I can tell I’ll be getting a lot of wear out of.
