happy friday!

happy friday! i'm not going to lie, halloween is probably my least favorite holiday. although i love candy, i've never been too keen about dressing up ever (...or maybe just for the past 15 years or so). i'm pretty content to be spending my night relaxing with a movie or two and over-indulging in too many sweet treats.

have a great weekend! be sure to check out this week's links below!

definitely going to have to give this chocolate buttermilk cake recipe a try!

i recently tried on a pair of slip-on sneakers and i was kinda surprised by how much i liked them. if i were to get a pair i would totally get these!

a behind-the-scenes look at the making of chanel haute couture--absolutely breathtaking!

what kids around the world eat for breakfast.

i picked up a few things at j.crew factory this week (this scarf is so soft!), and i figured i would share a few of my favorite picks below!

and be sure to check out my new collections and guides for eBay!

j.crew style guide

just a few of j.crew's favorite things right now (i'll admit, they're some of mine too) from their november style guide. there are a few things that i'm looking to add to my winter wardrobe and a chunky knit turtleneck sweater is one of them. doesn't this one look so cozy?!

martin grant fall/winter 2014

i've pretty much fallen in love with every piece of the fall/winter collection from martin grant. every. piece. moda operandi recently had a trunkshow of the collection, and in my dreams i would have purchased every coat (i go a little coat-crazy during the fall and winter).

i feel naked if i'm not wearing earrings. i don't wear many necklaces, rings, or bracelets, so i really play it up by mixing and matching my earring studs (and i have quite a few ear piercings... 9 total). it's an easy way for me to add a little sparkle to my outfit. i just got these pearl 360 studs from baublebar and i adore them! next on my list are these evil eye earrings from jane pope jewelry. i'm afraid that if i ever get them i may never take them off!
