Tay and Co: December 2017

New Years Eve Outfit Inspo with STYLEanthropy

Ringing in the new year is one of my favorite times because it's a fresh start, but also a time to reflect on the past year. I love to take a look back at all the fun travels we did and what goals I accomplished. Some of my 2017 highlights were traveling to New York City, Denver, Chicago, Vegas, Austin, Knoxville and Fort Myers. We celebrated lots of friends getting married and our 1st anniversary with a trip to Cancun! My husband opened his own autograph store in Regent Square. My little brother graduated from The University of Tennessee. I met so many new friends and Pittsburgh bloggers in the community! I had the opportunity to collaborate with some of my all time favorite brands like DIFF Eyewear, Marleylilly and Prep Obsessed! And so much more. I am so thankful for all of the opportunities I've been given and cannot wait to see what 2018 brings! 

New Years Eve fashion is so glamorous and over the top, which I absolutely love! Today I am collaborating with Cris from STYLEanthropy to show you a confetti sweater styled a few different ways for NYE! Cris is a Fashion and Lifestyle Blogger from Pittsburgh and has fabulous STYLE! She is one of the many Pittsburgh bloggers I met this past year and she is such a sweetheart! 

The metallic confetti sweater we are styling is from a local boutique called Flawless Darling! Cris styled her sweater with a beautiful black tulle skirt and booties! I love how she added in beads and the NYE headband for the full effect. Her outfit is perfect to wear to dinner and drinks on NYE, but still comfy if you are at a friends house to watch the ball drop. 

For my New Years Eve look I paired my confetti sweater with leather leggings and black booties. Warmth is also a factor here since I know it will be freezing in Pittsburgh. This sweater is thick so it will definitely keep you warm! The leather adds in some NYE glam, but they are also so comfy. My favorite part of this sweater is how the metallic threads reflect light. It is SO PRETTY in person. I mean you literally look like the NYE ball in Times Square! 

I hope you all have a happy and safe New Year! Make sure to follow Cris and Flawless Darling Boutique on Instagram! 

Floral Pullover for $34

I hope everyone had a nice Christmas! It was so fun to spend time with friends and family. As the colder months are approaching I love to add in pops of pattern or color into my wardrobe. It makes the day less dreary! 

How fun is this floral pullover from Bella Rose Boutique?! You can wear it on or off the shoulder and it has a pocket detail. I paired it with ripped jeans , fringe booties and pink aviators. This pullover is also perfect to throw on with leggings while you're lounging around the house. 

Here are some of my other favorites from Bella Rose Boutique

Make sure to check out their Instagram page as well! 

Thank you Bella Rose Boutique for the Opportunity to collaborate! All opinions are my own.

Merry Christmas loves! I just wanted to jump on and say a huge THANK YOU to all of my readers & the companies that have collaborated with me this year. I truly appreciate all the support & I am so excited to see what 2018 brings! 

Prep Obsessed Cozy Mystery Mailer

Mystery Mailers make the perfect gift this holiday season! Especially the Cozy Mystery Mailer from Prep Obsessed! Even if you bought it as a little treat for yourself. I mean, who doesn't love getting packages in the mail?!

The Cozy Mystery Mailer is only $59.99 but is over $140 in value. It comes with so many fun items to keep you super comfy cozy this winter. I received: a kimono from All for Color, thermal slipper socks, a signature graphic tee that said "Cozy Cozy", a coffee mug, teleties, and an eye mask! 

The kimono is one of my favorite items because I can pair it with a long sleeve top to wear to work, or it's perfect to throw on after work in my pjs. Slipper socks are an obvious win because I'll wear them around my apartment at night. They also have nice grips on the bottom so you aren't sliding all over the place! Graphic tees are great layering pieces to lounge in the winter time. This one is super soft too! The coffee mug says "I donut care", ideal for that Monday AM coffee. Teleties are those cool hair ties that don't leave creases in your hair! I don't know about you guys but I love rocking the messy bun when I'm at home cozied up on the couch. Finally, the eye mask has a glam design on the front, so Audrey Hepburn! But the best part is it comes with a gel insert which you can freeze for headaches.

Prep Obsessed has so many other great Mystery Mailers too! They usually come out with one every season. If the Cozy Mystery Mailer isn't for you check out the Casual Chic Mailer or the Classic Mailer. Definitely treat yourself to one with that holiday money or if you still need someone to buy for check it out! 

Thank you Prep Obsessed for opportunity to collaborate. All opinions are my own.

LipSense for the Holidays - Get 10% off!

Has anyone tried the new lipstick craze LipSense? If you haven't you are definitely missing out! LipSense is a long lasting lip color that can stay on your lips for up to 18 hours! They have so many colors to choose from. The best part is you can layer on different glosses or lipstick colors to make up your own shade. 

I purchased the Apple Cider Color from one of my local LipSense Distributors Mandy and I am obsessing! The color is the perfect fall/winter shade. Plus it literally lasts all day without having to reapply! 

For all my readers you can get 10% off your purchase with Mandy until Wednesday December 13th to have your LipSense in time for Christmas! Here Facebook page is linked here to order and just mention my blog to get your discount! I think they make the perfect gifts for your mom, sister or bestie! Pricing is below, but I would definitely recommend getting the starter kit first if you've never tried it before! This will come with one color, one gloss, and the Oops remover. Even if you don't want a color, I would try the gloss! I have the glossy gloss and I love just wearing it around if I don't want a lip color that day. 

Which shade is your favorite?
