Looking at the calendar yesterday, I realized that Valentine's Day is only a few weeks away. While I have not always been a fan of the cupid-themed holiday, I do love the true meaning behind Valentine's day: L-O-V-E. Against popular belief, Valentine's day is not just a day for lovers, but also a day for besties. It is like the quote from Sex and the City says: “We made a deal ages ago… men, babies, it doesn’t matter. We’re soulmates.” Your first soul mate(s) in life are your BFF. So why not treat her to some lovely goodies this Valentine's Day? I have hand-picked some of the chicest gifts to spoil your girls with this February 14th.
One of my absolute favorites on this gift guide is this Rebecca Minkoff x REVOLVE edition purse. Besides it having one of my all time favorite metals, rose gold, it is the perfect touch to any outfit. The second purse on this guide happens to be Rebecca Minkoff as well, and it is HOT! This red, quilted handbag has a classy, modern look. Looking to buy another kind of bag for your sporty friend? This Kate Spade reusable bag is perfect as a gym bag. Plus, it is super cute!
If your friend likes a personal touch to her gifts, get her this monogram acrylic keychain by BaubleBar. Besides it being electric and fun, it is also a one-of-a-kind, personalized gift. I also love this sleeping mask/gel mask by Henri Bendel. It is perfect for your girl friend that goes all day long and deserves a little TLC. Another item that is perfect to treat your friend is this yummy-smelling vanilla candle. Because let's face it what girl does not love a candle?
So what item on the list will you be treating you girl friends (or even yourself) to this V-Day? You can shop my Galentine's Day guide below in 'SHOP THE POST'. Have a happy Tuesday loves!

Happy Thursday! I have to admit I am kinda loving this cold weather Miami has to offer. My friends from up north are totally making fun of me because I am wearing the same warm clothing as them and it is under 20 degrees there and only 50 here, haha! But hey if a girl is cold, she is cold! I wanted to share this go-to look of mine today for when the weather isn't always sunny in Miami.
For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you know I have been living in my Articles of Society dark wash jeans. I love skinny jeans and these are no exception, on top of being super comfy, they also match with almost anything. I paired the look with a black tank under and jean button-down on top so I don't freeze. I also topped it off with this amazing scarf I got last Black Friday for my trip to Washington DC. It is super soft and keeps my neck warm from the cold wind. And of course, Tory Burch flats never need a reason to be worn! I love my black ones!
I also love my TAudrey trio. I love that it incorporates my favorite colors and it the perfect neutral set to wear almost every day. The white beads are stunning and they have a marble-esque look to them which is really beautiful. I'm currently figuring out what trio I want next..Hmm. Maybe for Valentine's Day?
I hope you all stay warm today! Thanks so much for stopping by the blog. Oh and by the way, tomorrow is FRIYAY! Woohoo!! XO

Happy Hump Day! I got this gorgeous Kipling bag to act as my school bag for Christmas. I absolutely love it! It has so many compartments and holds so much so it is perfect for me. I tend to carry a lot while in school my wallet, pencil pouch, etc. so it is important for me to have a sturdy, good-sized bag to get me through the day. My favorite feature about this bag is that it has two straps, a long shoulder strap as well as purse straps. Another feature I love about my Kipling is that it is neutral colors: black straps on a beige body. I love that it is neutral because it matches to any outfit I choose to wear to my classes.
Another Christmas gift I adore is my Rebecca Minkoff pouch. I am obsessed! I love that it has an 'S' for my last name and that it is the perfect size. When I went to Disney Springs (AKA Downtown Disney) I used it as a clutch at night, but normally I keep my necessities in it like gum, a backup charger, etc. and toss it in whatever purse I am using. It is the perfect place to store the items you'll need throughout the day without having to dig in your bag. The leather is super soft too, which I adore! Both of these items help me stay chic and organized during classes!
For my look I paired my grey Socialite racerback dress with my oldie, but goodie jean button down shirt. I love this combo because it is a cute look for school that is still comfortable. Seriously, there is nothing more important to a college student than be comfortable! Trust me! I also paired my latest obsession these sneakers from 14th and Union that I found at Nordstrom Rack (aka Heaven!) I was really into this high-top sneaker trend, but wanted a pair that was neutral and that I can dress up a bit or keep it casual--these were the perfect pair!
By the way, a lot of my Miami readers/friends have been asking what is the "cool gym I go to" and it is called Sensory. If you live in the Pinecrest/Falls/Palmetto Bay area, this is one gym you need to try. I love it!! (I know shocker- I actually like working out now thanks to Sensory!) There is no harm in trying it because your first class is complimentary! Ever since I was diagnosed with PCOS, diet and exercise have been very important to me. Thanks to Sensory I have found a way to workout consistently and with a smile on my face.
