Baby+ 12 Week Update

Hi everyone! If you didn't know already from my Facebook or Insta.... I am expecting! I am so crazy nervous and have sooooo much going on right now, but, it is such a blessing. I was going to wait a little longer to announce it but, I have such a big mouth and I could NOT blog about it. Pregnancy blogs are my favorite to read.. Even when I wasn't pregnant. Haha! They are just so interesting to me, so, I couldn't wait to get started! 

A little background on me-- I have endometriosis so, although I never really tried, I was always SO nervous about not being able to get pregnant. It was my BIGGEST fear. I know alot of you other endo girls are right there with me. Tons of endometriosis girls get pregnant all the time but, its just a thought in my mind I never could. Until one day here I am! My pregnancy has actually been pretty easy so far, symptom wise. I feel pretty blessed. Although eating has been really hard for me and just being plain old tired was a pain. But, no morning sickness or anything! I was having a TON of joint pain for a while now, to the point where I couldn't get up in the morning because my hips or knee or shoulder would hurt reallllll bad. My OB kept telling me it was just pregnancy but I knew something else was going on. I was SO SO SO SO tired and my whole body felt like I just did the best workout of my life but two days later. Yea, that feeling. I just knew something wasn't right. So, I had some blood work done and low in behold I have Lyme Disease. It was really scary to find out and honestly still creepin' me out but, I still have to wait to see a specialist. So until then, I am trying to just not think much about it. I'm the type of person even if I don't know any facts, I will just think about the worst possible scenarios. Just me? But now, being on antibiotics and trying to force myself to eat, I am feeling pretty good. Thank the lord! I am going to try to do these updates every few weeks so I hope you guys follow me along this crazy journey 8)

How far along?  12 weeks!

Total weight gain/measurements: I have actually lost about 9 or so. I started out at 117 and I weighed myself today and now I am around 108ish. First trimester has been a DOOZY and I just got over the stomach bug. I am sure I'll start packin the weight on in no time!

Maternity clothes: Nope.

Stretch marks: Again, thank the lord, none yet!

Sleep: Uncomfortable at night. I think between pregnancy and Lyme my body doesn't like me lately and does not like me to be comfortable! I wake up literally every few hours and around 4 my bodies like ok, lets watch George Lopez and I WANT TO SLEEP!

Best moment this week: Prob seeing my nephew and nieces on Halloween! My one niece was Audrey Hepburn, haha. SO cute. I have an appointment Wednesday at the OB so I'm pretty excited to hear the heartbeat.

Miss anything? I miss being a normal human and not being so emotional.

Movement: Nope!

Food cravings: Ummmmm salsa. Def salsa. And fruit dip. If that isn't the two most opposite things in the world. The first few weeks I could not eat ANYTHING and now all I want is everything. All the foods. I'm not judgmental. Give them all to me. Now. 

Anything making you queasy or sick? Different smells definitely. A lot of times any smell of food or someone cooking makes me sick. 

Gender: I have no ideer!

Labour signs: Nope.

Symptoms: I don't think so. None that I can think of lately. I guess just being tired a lot and my body being sore. But again, between Lyme and pregnancy I don't know which is which. Other than that, I really don't have much to complain about!

Belly button in or out? In!

Happy or moody most of the time: I dont knowwwww. Probabaly moody. Yea, moody. Haha.

Looking forward to: Actually being able to tell I am pregnant! Or, being able to feel the first flutters. I cant waitttt.

Chilliiii Summa Days

Hat | Crop Top: Sold Out / similar | Shorts | Cardigan | Shoes 

This is my go to outfit for chilly summer days! I am from upstate NY if you didnt know and August is feeling alot like Fall most of the time. But, it can get up to the 90's in a hot second. Something like this is ideal! A cardigan with holes makes it super light weight and you can always ditch it when it gets alittle hot. I am also in LOVE with this hat. Its out of my comfort zone but I have been lovin' it. Definitely bringing that style into Fall. My shorts from Glamour and Glow are my favoooooorite. I would wear them every single day if I wasnt lazy and did laundry on a normal basis. They go with everything and they are riiiiiiil comfy. They are also on sale right now (lucky for you all) and I am really upset about it. I might restock on another pair! They are $25! 

Whats your favorite part of this outfit? Do you like to wear hats?

Flowers in Emilys Hair

Ok, I know I said my last post was my favorite but, I think I changed my mind. This just makes me so happy. The dress is my FAVORITE style right now. Dresses, shirts anything off the shoulder are just so beautiful to me. ALSO-- the flowers in my hair was such a great touch by my photographer Nelli. I loved it. She literally just grabbed weeds took the clip out of her hair and voila. It was amazing. Literally "Flowers in Emilys Hair" This makes me smile. Also, these sandals have been my go to! They were also only $12!

Whats been your favorite go to style this summer? Can you believe its almost over? AHH!

Self Tanning Q&A

If you know me in real life, or have read my blog for a while, you know that I have been a spray tan addict since maybe 8th grade. When I started let me tell you, I made many, many, (did I say many?) mistakes. Fast forward a good nine or so years and I would say I am some what of a pro. Ok, I still make the casual mess up from time to time, but, I have learned a ton! I always get tons of questions about it so I thought I'd do a little *clap* Q *clap* and Slay *clap* in the wise words of Tyler Oakley.

B&W Everythan'

Romper | Rings | Earrings | Sunglassses | Boots- sold out but similar

Hi everyone! Lately, I have been pretty boring with my style but I have been loving it! I've been into very minimal, black, grey and white outfits. I just think its so classy. You can buy so many different pieces and they'll never go "out of style". They are just simple. This has been my favorite romper and its from Charlotte Russe! Also, these sunnies have been my GO TO-- I have gotten so many compliments on them it isn't even funny. They remind me of Ray Bans but guess what.... They are only $12! What a steallll $$$$$. I got them from Glamour & Glow! I can't find my rings online but they are from Brandy Melville. I have been loving wearing simple jewelry but layering tonnnnnzzzz of them. Can you tell my style has been changing big time?

I also started working with a new photographer so tell me what you think! Her name is Nellie and she is amazinggggggg. Check all her work out here. We have a lot of new things coming out for you so keep your eyes peeled 0_o eek!

How I Edit My Instagram Pics


Haha, I'm kidding. But really, I honestly debated for a long time if I should even do this post since there are SO MANY ways out there to edit. Everyone has their own unique style. Especially when it comes to Instagram and tbh, I don't think what I do is that exciting haha. Another reason I never even thought about doing this is because I always would need to use like seventeen thousand different apps to get what I wanted. NOT ANY MO'. Instagram finally redesigned their editing and I am lovin' it. Its the only editing I use anymore. I know my editing prob isn't everyones cup of tea but, it may give you some new tips to try out with what you already do now!

Kylie Jenner Lip Dupes!

Kylie Jenner is always known for her lips. Lip injections or not? What do you think? I personally care more about the colors she wears on them! Her lip color has been the talk of 2014 and now 15. Kim finally broke the silence and told the Pixi Woo sisters that Kylie wears Macs Whirl lip liner and colors in her entire lip. Ever since then-- since now Whirl is coincidentally out of stock everywhere-- every one is trying to replicate this unique nude. Me included. Here are my favorite 'Kylie-esq' lip ideeerz.

                                                           1) Maybelline Lipstick in Touch of Spice
4) Mac Twig 

2) Rimmel Lip Liner in Tsiramu

All of these lip options have been my GO TO! All day, everyday. Have you tried any of these lip options? Whats your favorite Kylie Lip? Do you like the dark nude trend? Or should we keep it in the 90s? Let me know in the comments! Talk to you all sooooon xo

Blind, am I.

I am blind.
I am, blind.
I, am blind.
Blind, am I.
Blind, I am.

Whatever way you want to write it, I have the worst vision. EVER. Ok, there probably is worse. But, mines pretty bad. Lucky for me I actually like glasses. I love being able to switch up my style between different glasses, different styles and contacts! I even think if I had 20/20 vision I would still wear glasses once in a while. They are just fun. Just like my beauty/fashion finds, I found an AWESOME online glasses company that I thought you all would love.

All About That BASE

But really, I'm with you Megan Trainor!
I think that your base makeup is what really makes your look put together.. Lets just get a little off topic for a sec--
Lets just say, ya know, hypothetically, you saw a girl with a full face, foundation, contour, highlight, blush done and little mascara, maybe some eye liner and a bold lip, heck, even a nude lip, you would think her life was put together right? So what if there was a different girl, maybe slacked, didn't use foundation that day, or maybe she even did, but it was patchy and didn't look very nice, with a blown out beautiful smokey eye, but her skin looks like abs crap. Which girls makeup would you like better? I feel like this is a no brainer... In my book, I think the skin always comes first! Make that beautiful then move on to the extra shenanigans. If you have a beautiful base everything else is just icing on the cake. 

On the same note, spending money on quality products for your face I really believe makes all of the difference! Not that you can't find a good deal now and again but most of the time. Wash your face with grease it will look like a pizza. (That didn't make sense) Just use good products ok?

Things I Learned From Roald Dahl

Here we go again, I'm ranting. But, I hope this can help someone. With Lent, I have really tried to think of something to give up. First I thought, soda.. (I already gave that up, so that would be cheating) Then, I thought, social media. (That would just make my blog and work suffer) So, no. I honestly, had nothing to give up. I have been going through a lot with my work and personal life and the one person I always come home to is my mom. She is miss perfect apparently because even if I had the most rough day and just want to vent-- all she does is say 'Emily, why all the negativity? If its negative, I don't want to hear about it' At the time... I might be mad. But, she's right. Why let people bother me? If they are bothering me and I go home to cry/complain about it they won. Why let this person or thing keep ruining my day? The more you think about how bad your day was, or how awful a person was to you, it just makes you more upset. The more you talk about how AWFUL that person is, that makes you just as bad.

So, on my binging on Pinterest, I saw this quote from the Twits-- I LOVED ROALD DAHL GROWING UP-- and thought, that actually is so right. Who would have thought that a book I read at what, age 8, would be such an impact on my life 14 years later. But, this is so true.

"If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, that face gets uglier and uglier until it gets so ugly you can hardly bear to look at it.
A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely."

Seriously though... You can be the most beautiful person in this world, but, if you have a bad personality at the end of the day, you wont have anything. None will want to be around you. Especially someone who is rotten and negative all of the time. You can be just a regular girl and be positive and funny and likable and people will want to be around you. Why let someone/something ruin that for you? People will see a bad persons true colors. You don't need to talk about a person for them to see it. What Sally says about Harry says more about Sally than Harry. This is something I need to work on. Not letting things getting me down and to get the positivity back. Everyone has feelings. Good person or not. So why hurt someone? Who wants to do this with me? I think it could be fun! Honestly, do not let anyone shadow your happiness. With the internet and social media now a days, it is so easy. Be positive. In every aspect of your life. 

Sorry again, about my rantz but, technically, per Roald Dahl, this is a beauty post. The secret to good skin and nails, don't take biotin, HAVE GOOD THOUGHTS :) Hehehe, but really, I will be back with my usual posts so soon :) I have tons and tons of amazing things coming this way, so keep your eyes open! I am so excited to share everything with all of you!

|| What did you give up for Lent?!

THE GRRAAAAMMMMYYYYYS. The long awaited Grammys. This is the only awards show I am actually ever about. I feel like its the one time for the celebs to actually be a little on the wild side and be themselves. Please tell me you haven't forgotten about Lady Gagas meat dress? She's nuts, I think. Or what about Kanye interrupting Taylor Swift? Im sure you didn't forget that one! The Grammys makes everyyyyyone talk, every. single. year. First, can we plssss talk about Kanye West getting up and interrupting Beck. I hate him so much. LOL. Sorry Kanye fans. I love Beyonce more than life but, reeeeally. GO AWAY. I loved Katy Perrys performance. Her white cape dress was STUNNING.

Enough of my rambles-- on to fashion, hehe.
I have to start out with the girl I love to hate, T-Swift. As much as I try, I CAN NOT HATE HER. She was my best dressed for the entire night. Her dress was breathtaking with those shoes and her hair and makeup ughhhh. She was perfection.

January Faveez

So, the first month of 2015 is gone! Crazy! Although, I usually think months go by so fast and weirdly enough I felt like January dragged. But, I am not complaining.. I am so excited for February and the rest of the upcoming months! *ahem, summer, cough* So go on January, byeeee Felecia! February is my bday month and I cannot wait. This month I actually didn't try a lot of new products. But, I did fall in love with products I kinda forgot about. (Don't you love it when that happens?) My wallet is pretty happy, hehe. I have kind of a lot so, lesssssss get into it.

Get the Look: Olivia Palermo's Style

ME AND KYLA! EEEEEK and guess what? We have added a third bllogga, Victoria! Wooooohooo three times the fun!
Meet Victoria. Victoria has a blog over at Glossy and Glitzy all about fashion ! She's from NYC and all of her posts literally make me feel like I'm watching Gossip Girl. Not kidding. So if you love Blair Waldorf with a hint of Serena Vanderwoodsen, Victoria is your cup of tea. Today, us three decided to team up and recreate Olivia Palermos signature look! I went with her brown smokey eye over on Ky Marie C, Kyla did her curls on Glossy and Glitzy and I am having Victoria on my blog recreating her style! Go check out all of our posts to find how how to look just like The City star. SO, lets not waste any time. Heres Victoria!

This is my take on the Olivia Palermo look above. I went with a black jacket and faux fur stole instead of the check shirt. Without the poncho I still have a nice look and I'll have to admit I do have a weakness for cozy furry accessories. Olivia is a fan of fur as seen here and here and I wanted to add it to my look as well. I think it gives the outfit a touch of glam. I've been dying to create this look for a while and I was able to get a few shots of it last week. It's been a bit chilly lately (Juno2015 whoa?) and I was waiting for warmer weather to style this outfit for the day. Shorts are not exactly winter staples but I am actually wearing thin nude tights underneath. All of these pieces came from what I've collected in my closet. Some things are new, and some things old - I'd say it's a pretty comparable look for $1000s less. Sometimes a Get the Look might not be exact, but I like adding my own style. You should too and see what you come up might be surprised what you find in your closet.

I'm hoping to create more looks for less posts for G&G. It's always fun to style an outfit inspired by another.  This helps me brainstorm and think of how I can wear things I already own - differently.  Olivia Palermo, Lauren Conrad, and Miranda Kerr are a few ladies that I admire when it comes to style and taste. Polished, chic, feminine, and classic are how I would describe Olivia Palermo's closet...oh and fabulous. Let's throw that one in there as well. Olivia definitely appreciates the finer things in life along with a sophisticated sense of style.

These are SO cool! I also bought the pearl earrings linked. Take a look at your local Macy's store for the black ones above. Check out my other earring picks HERE. There is also this set of three from Bauble Bar HERE.

Hope you enjoyed my first Get the Look post! If anyone has any looks they want to see shoot me an email at and I'll see what I can come up with. I'd love to hear your thoughts and suggestions.



AHHHHHHHHHHHHH! GUYS! How did you like Victoria?!?! How amaze is she?!

Go follow her on everything, like right now.

ALSO--- Don't forget, go check out how Kyla did her hair here and how I did her makeup here!
Follow Kyla if you haven't already as well.

How To: Spice Up a Plain Outfit

If you know anything about me, you would know I love plain outfits. When I mean plain, I don't mean plain. I just like to buy simple, timeless pieces that I can switch out a cardigan, leather jacket, shoes, and make a total different outfit. That way the Regina George of your life can't tell you you wore that outfit already;)

So, what I did is I took 3 staple pieces in my wardrobe. A white t, boyfriend jeans and ankle boots. You can switch out the color of any of these pieces as well to switch up the look! From a grey shirt, to black, to dark denim, to light, to black boots, to tan etc. etc.

How To: Spice Up a Plain T
Before we get into this I'm going to tell you my life long secret.
You cannot tell a soul.
Well ok, I suppose you can, the only white v necks I will buy (other than Victorias Secret if I want a deeper V) is Hanes mens shirts. Literally, since maybe 9th grade. If I could count how many time someone complimented them either, I would be one rich gal. They are just so comfy and not a deep v at all so you don't feel exposed all day. Just the best. What I do is get a size smaller than I usually would and its perfect. Its a tiny big but thats how I like my ts. Roll up your sleeves a tiny bit and you are gooooooood to go. Best part is you can get like 5 in a pack for $35. If thats not a good deal, I dont know what is. 
My first way to spice up your plain jane outfit is putting a cardigan over it! I really like this grey one from TopShop. An over sized cardi is so cute and adds to any outfit but other than that, its warm. In Upstate NY, you better bet your bottom dollar, you have a sweater. Especially where I work-- Dr. Surosky, turn on the heat PLEASE! 

Another quick idea is adding a leather jacket. Leather jackets complete so many looks. I love them. Anytime I wear a leather jacket, I feel like a BOSS. This one from Nordstrom would be perfect because its more structured. This will make your T look more put together, like you spent allllll day workin' on your cute outfit when you woke up 45 minutes late. #mylife
Last but not least, to bring this outfit from day to night is switch out the boots and put on a blazer with heels! This would be the perfect going out look! This blazer from ASOS would be soooo legit with these heels from Target! You prob can't tell or anything but I am all about the monochromatic colors! I think its just timeless. But, if you wanted to add some color, you could always add a purse, or change out the heels or jacket for a blush color!

I hope this helped everyone spice up their plain outfits! Whats your favorite way to spice up a t? Can you believe I wear mens shirts?!?!? Talk to you all sooooooooooon :)

Taking Stock

Hi guys, I really miss you! Lol, I have been slacking big time in the blog department. I can't even use the excuse that I have had a lot going on, because, honestly.... I haven't. I just have felt so unmotivated in the blog world. I had to take ten steps back and give it a break. Also, it doesn't help that I am back living with my parentals and their internet literally is the worst. I can't believe I'm uttering these words but I think AOL might have been better. #countryprobs #deersaremyneighbors But, by taking this little vacation from my blog, I actually have become very inspired. I haven't had the time to round up any posts but, I have been so obsessed with The Day Book Blog and she posted this here and I thought why not?? It was weirdly refreshing... It reminds me of MySpace surveys and I used to be AALLLLL about that life. pc4pc?
