All Black Everything: NYE

Happy New Year's Eve! Today I wanted to share my go to "going out" outfit that can definitely work for a more low key New Year's Eve outfit. I'm going with a sparkly black dress instead though, stay tuned for the look! What are you ladies wearing? And what are your New Year's resolutions? I'm still coming up with mine...

Merry Christmas!

Just wanted to quickly wish you all a Merry Christmas! Hope you all can spend this time with family and loved ones (and some lovely drinks and gifts too), always remembering that what really matters are the people around the tree and not the gifts under it. Love you all!

Camel Coat and Red Pants

Happy weekend! I hope you all have been well and in the holiday spirit! How many of you are doing last minute shopping now? Guilty here, but it's all good. I hope you all have lovely holidays!

Winter Beauty Products

A few of my must haves that have taken over my bathroom now that the weather is colder. My Clarisonic (1) is in the rotation all year, but I use Cetaphil skin cleanser (7) with it once the temperatures have dropped. I moisturize with Bobbi Brown's hydrating face cream (3) and finish with Neutrogena Skin Clearing foundation (2) in honey beige. My go-to lip moisturizer is plain old aquaphor (4) - add lip color on top if you want, but never leave the house without this stuff. For body nothing will get you softer than Dermadoctor's KP duty body scrub and lotion (5); it's pricey but a little goes a long way! For hair I've recently been loving Shea Moisture's conditioner (6) - I use it as conditioner and a bit as leave-in if I'm wearing my hair curly. What are your winter beauty products?

Oxblood Biker

A low key outfit made a bit more biker with the help of a leather jacket and booties. Hope you all had great weekends - one more week of the hospital for me and then a few weeks off for vacation!

Holiday Decor 2012

Happy Friday! Today I'm just sharing a few photos of the holiday decorations in my apartment this year. I finally decided it was time for my very own tree, and although it looked much smaller in the store I think it still works in my space. See below for links to a few of the key pieces!

Stealing From the Boys

I'm in love with this sweater, the color, the fit, the feel are all so perfect right now. I found it in the boys section of my local Savers for less than $5- had to grab it!

Polka Dots and Leather

Happy Monday! Man I feel like it's been forever since I last posted! Last week was full of ob/gyn wrap-up stuff, 4 oral exams, and a big written exam, but that's done! Today I start my next rotation, pediatrics! I'll be at Children's Hospital here in Boston. How were your weeks? Hopefully a little less hectic than mine! Hope your weekends were full of holiday spirit too!
