Anyone else tired of the “What are you wearing tonight?” questions during the red carpet specials. You can always expect a few awkward questions from the on-air talent who may or may not have done their research on our favorite celebrities and you can definitely count on that annoying overused mani cam to make an appearance (and honestly how many nail beds can we critique). But this red carpet special was far from a snooze fest, thanks to E!. View Full Post

Pop Up Plus Look Book

So, this happened last week. YES girl they got me to put on a tutu and play dress up. You know if I had my way I’d be in sweats and converses all day, every day! But this was fun and a great way for me to get out of my boring “I need all the black clothes in the world” box.

This holiday season, Pop Up Plus introduces their first ever “Magalog” – an extended lookbook and catalog with a magazine feel. CEO of Pop Up Plus, Camille Newman says, “It’s just a little extra gift for our amazing customers this holiday!”

Zales Holiday Wish List

Once I became an adult, which I will add literally just happened within the last five years, I realized that Christmas gifts were a distant childhood memory that I desperately need and want to make my reality again. Growing up, my parents showered us with gifts all year around but Christmas was a HUGE deal. So huge that my mother and father would try to out do each other with their gifts to each other. Something about gift giving and taking the time out to really think about what the other person would like is such a warming act. This year I am throwing all kinds of hints to the people I love and who love me!  View Full Post


It’s officially countdown time, the holidays are practically here! You know that means we’ll all be making a cameo at the hottest party in the city. Whatever city you live in that it. That also means, lots of holiday looks to flaunt before the year ends. Gurl, what we wearing? We cannot wait until the last minute to put our looks together. We’ve all been down that road and it’s no fun. So, let’s plan now, especially when there’s so many sales to take advantage of!

From BCBG Max Azria to Rebecca Minkoff, this post will serve as your catalyst to your next new clutch collection for not only the holidays but for future date nights, office parties or just-wanting-to-look-amazing moments.

And at under $50, it’s a cinch! Happy Shopping. View Full Post

Catherines Style Ambassadors-1

This holiday season I’ve done EVERYTHING in my power to not be depressed. If you’re a long time reader of GIG than you know my mother went to Heaven in 2013 and the holiday season just isn’t the same without her anymore (if you’re new and didn’t know that, catch up here). During my grieving process, I’ve learned that I have to surround myself with souls that fill the void of my mother. Specifically women that lift me up, even when all I really want to do is sit in the corner and pout because I miss my mother beyond words.

A few weeks ago I was selected to attend a Holiday Getaway to Rhinebeck, NY sponsored by Catherines. View Full Post
