Adorable Winter Hat

I've been looking for a super cute winter hat for a while now...and given that it's now almost Christmas and I still don't have one really says something!

I found this little delight and it made my day.  This Kate Spade Ski Goggle Hat is almost too cute for words. It makes shopping for winter hats about a million times easier and more fun.

The only downside is that each hat is $75.  I know--huge bummer. There's still time before Christmas if someone wants to get me one *wink, wink*!

Looking for Funky Wrapping Paper?

I love wrapping gifts, so Christmas is always fun for me.  It's at the point where I usually tend to wrap every single little gift individually.  But I really like to be unique with my wrapping.  I mean really--who wants a plain gift wrapped in snowmen or Santa patterns?

That's where this amazing Bacon Gift Wrap from Fred Flare comes in.  I'm so in love with this.  First of all, the colors are actually quite Christmas-y.  So, you can't really say that it isn't perfect for wrapping up that fab sweater you got for your mom.  Secondly...it's bacon. Ummm...how could you not love this??!

Not only is the gift wrap a gift to the person receiving the gift, it's also a gift for you to be able to wrap with something so crazily awesome.

Two 20" X 30" sheets are $8. Definitely a deal you can't pass up.

Did I mention that it's friggin' BACON GIFT WRAP??!

The Perfect Winter Blazer

I've always been a blazer girl.  I've got about 15 of them, but I can always do with more.  They're perfect for just about any occasion and always manage to look totally chic.

My latest blazer obsession is this fab Frayed Boucle Blazer from Metrostyle.  I only got it about a week ago and already it has migrated to the very front of my closet.

What I really like about this jacket is that it can be dressed down with a pair of jeans, or dressed up with a great holiday cocktail dress.  The details of the blazer make it unique and simply gorgeous without going over the top.  The edges are frayed, but also have a great metallic silver trim.  It's fully lined and super comfy.

The best part?  The blazer is currently on sale for under $60! Totally worth it for such a high-quality, versatile jacket.

My Grandma's Got Skillzz!














So, I've been staying at my gram's house for a bit and it's really great because I get to witness amazing beauty techniques such as this. I am proud to say that my grandma can actually curl her hair with a hot curling iron without looking in a mirror and can even watch home decorating shows at the same time for tips.  PLUS, she's in a rocking chair and actually rocking back and forth in it.

Now I can definitely multi-task with some things, and I've been known to apply eyeliner in some not-so-safe conditions, but seeing my gram do this, really shows me where I got a huge chuck of my beauty habits from!

In all actuality, I don't even think I'd be able to pull this off--chances are I'd burn myself multiple times (which already constantly happens even when I've got a mirror right in front of me), or I'd curl something the wrong way.

So, kudos to my gram for her ageless multi-tasking beauty techniques!!

Looking for a Unique Jewelry Piece? Check out Vella Mode (P.S.: There's a GIVEAWAY!!!)

When I first stumbled upon Vella Mode jewelry, I was incredibly impressed.  The pieces created are absolutely gorgeous and definitely are the statement piece of any outfit. 
Each piece is handmade and unique, which makes for the perfect gift for anyone on your list (even yourself!). These are all one of a kind creations, made out of recycled glass. The outcome is simply stunning.

I've got one gorgeous necklace to give away (pictured).  This particular necklace is from the Evella Collection and is16 inches long.  It is constructed with recycled coke glass, 14k gold plated floral decor and a long tear drop amber glass bead.  The chain is rhodium.

Personally, I'd wear this piece with a simple black outfit--maybe even a little black dress for holiday parties? But I have a feeling that it'd look fab with nearly anything.

To enter the giveaway, send an email to sassyalana@gmail.com with the subject line reading "VELLA MODE".  The giveaway ends 12/10 and the winner will be alerted via email.

Good luck!

Fashion Faux Pas: The Snowman Vest

It's that time of year again...I've been seeing holiday-themed sweaters and vests everywhere I go and I've had to fight the urge to puke all over the place multiple times.  And mind you, it's only December 1st!

I feel like every year I need to announce the fact that it is not okay to wear any sort of clothing with holiday-themed doodads on it.  Because clearly people are still not listening to me.

This particular vest is just asking for it. I mean, come on!! Snowmen and Christmas trees living in harmony, skiing on a BRIGHT red vest? Never even mind the fact that the neckline is trimmed in fuzzy pile.

This is not okay to wear. Ever. even if you are over the age of 80, please avoid this at all costs.

If, for some ungodly reason you actually like this vest, be my guest and spend the $20 or so on it at Sears.  But good luck actually getting it. Because for some horrifying reason, the vest is actually sold out. Ugh.
