Tassels

I came across a beautiful pair of tassel earrings in a store recently, and that got me thinking about how great of accessories tassels can be. 

They add tons of flair and sass to any outfit and are also really fun to swing around!
I put together a few fun options below:

Tory Burch Home and Office

I love cute office accessories as much as the next girl and so does Tory Burch. 
I was taking a look at her home and office accessories for Christmas gifts and fell in love! Everything is so chic and classy and oh so perfect. 



I really want to make that desk calendar mine!

Growth

Have you ever had a major aha moment out of nowhere? I definitely did the other day. I'm at a point now where I will letting go of some responsibilities and taking on new ones. One of which is growing this blog. I started The Preppy Scientist last summer because I was bored and going through a pretty rough time in my life. 

I haven't really cared too much if people actually read this blog, because I just love writing and sharing things with people. But in true Type A fashion, I need more. I'm at a point now where I want to do more with this small piece of the internet that belongs to me.


I'm excited that I will have the time to devote to growing this blog and brand and making it great. I truly love blogging and would never want to stop - even if I have 2 or 2000 readers. 
I hope you'll stick around for the ride. I promise you won't be disappointed!

Style Notes: Pavé Jewelry

Blame the Holiday season, but I am currently obsessed with all things sparkly. If you're like me and don't necessarily like to dress in head to toe sparkle, pave jewelry is perfect for you. Pave items are perfect statement pieces that add the right amount of sparkle to any look.

Perfect for those upcoming Christmas parties!

Check out my favourites below

Love me some Starbucks red cups! And usually whatever comes inside :)

Kate Spade on Youtube

I feel like I talk about Kate Spade a lot on the blog, but I cannot help it. Everything they do is perfect. Everything. I recently found the Kate Spade Youtube channel and I am obsessed. I had caught a few videos here and there, but was unaware that an actual channel existed.

A couple hours later and I'm blogging about it.

I totally love the Holiday video


I also really enjoy the "Build Your Brand" mini series




How fun?

Hey It's Okay!

1. To be in full Christmas mode on December 1st. 
2. To return an item you regret buying, twenty minutes after buying it. 
3. To neglect your inbox for a day.
4. To burn dinner and order takeout instead
5. To purposely walk in puddles while wearing your boots. 
6. To buy your cat a Christmas sweater. 
7. To hide a chipped manicure under a band-aid.
8. To monogram your calculator. 
9. To get really excited over finding fruit bottom yogurt at the store.
10. To spend two hours on Pinterest without even realizing it. 

It's okay!

Holiday Shoes and Hues

I've been wearing a lot more nail polish recently, which is a huge deal for me. I usually can't sit still long enough to let the polish dry and almost always end up smudging my manicure within 5 minutes. 

I've been using Essie polishes with the Essie base and top coat; which is perfect for an impatient gal like me. The quick dry top coat sets your manicure in seconds! I also really love the countless number of colours that Essie has. I someday hope to have every wittily named polish in my collection! 

Since I'm all about the holidays right now, I paired together cute shoes perfect for Christmas parties with fun nail polish colours! 

Enjoy!

The Best Sweaters Ever

Okay, before I begin - let me apologize for my brief hiatus on the blog. It was totally unexpected and it totally drove me crazy but I'm so happy to be back.

Moving on..

I love a good sweater. Especially in this mix of Fall and Winter weather we are experiencing. They are super easy to pair with an oxford, jeans and a pair of boots. As a matter of fact - I have been wearing variations of that outfit everyday. 

Now I have a specific sweater that I love and it's from Old Navy.
I really really love the Classic V-neck sweaters. They have definitely become a 'basic' in my wardrobe and they come in so many fun colours! 







Now, I will warn you that I have a love hate relationship with Old Navy. While their clothes are reasonably priced and come in a wide variety - they don't always fit (if you know what I mean). If you don't mind a few trips to the tailor though, I highly recommend these sweaters!

Anything fun and flirty is perfect for this friend.



How fun!
