Happy Halloween…

My absolute favorite time of the year basically starts today!  Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays ever since I was a little kid!  One of my favorite memories growing up was a costume party we had and my dad wore a real carved pumpkin on his head the entire time, it was hilarious and everyone loved it!

Now that have a little one of my own who loves it just as much as I do it is so much fun to see her so excited!  Our whole family loves to dress up and she gets such a kick out of it!  Here are some of my favorite moments from the past weekend ❤

Clearly I love a theme while decorating, the great part is that most of these banners and extras can be saved year to year by simple putting them into a ziplock back and they look great and save you a ton of money from repurchasing everything all over again!

Finally Fall…

Hey everyone! So Fall has officially decided to make its way to our doorstep and we are starting to feel some more chilly weather!  I wanted to share a few pictures of what we have been up to lately as well as link a recent outfit of the day video!

We finally made it to the pumpkin patch which was so fun and a great family outing, we had the best ice-cream and found a bunch of super cute pumpkins for our front door area.  This year we don’t have a large front porch like we did at our last house, but I am really happy with how it turned out!  For a small area I was actually able to squeeze a ton of cute fall decorations in!

  I think that pumpkins and mums are so beautiful and they can transition all the way until Thanksgiving which is even better!  I hope you and your families are all enjoying the fall weather and getting to experience some fun activities as well!

Halloween Prep…

Hey guys! So fall is definitely in full swing around here!  We have had the busiest few weeks, but we are excited for Halloween and I wanted to share this super easy DIY wreath.  We picked up all of the supplies needed at our local Hobby Lobby for around $30.00 which is not bad compared to pre-made wreaths.  I usually always make my own so that I can customize it exactly the way I want it to look.  I also like making my own because I can make them a little bit larger for the front door.  I will also be adding a string of battery operated lights as soon as they get delivered.

Pretty Pearls…

Hey guys! I am super excited to share these new goodies with you!  I have been wearing these and trying them out for the last few months and I am totally OBSESSED with them all!  The PeachBox contacted me a little while ago and asked if I would review some of their products, I always take a look at the company and obviously check out the website.  I loved what they had to offer and thought it would be worth a try, and I am so thrilled with everything.  The pieces are amazing quality for the price point and seriously so chic.  I have never tried a leather watch and I love how soft and pretty it makes every outfit.  I also love the combination of the bracelets with the watch.  They are just my style, pretty, simple, and chic all in one.  Check out the video linked below for more details and how I styled the pieces.  Thanks for reading and check out the link below if you are interested in these fab pieces.  Don’t forget to use the code “bellanoochi” to save you 15% off your order through the month of September.  Happy shopping ❤

Straighten It Out…

Happy Thursday everyone! I recently shared a review about this straightener on my YouTube channel and I wanted to blog about it as well.  I honestly have been loving this particular straightener from Irresistible Me for a few months now.  I love being able to try new products and styling tools from different companies, but this one really stood out above the rest and has become my go-to straightener.  I raved about my old one from Sally’s Beauty, but that quickly got put in the donate pile after trying the Diamond Straightener.  I love hot quickly it heats up and how convenient it is to travel with.

I would definitely recommend giving this straightener a try if you need a styling tool with the capacity to heat up to 450F.  I know a lot of people don’t like using such a high heat on their hair, and keep in mind the more coloring and bleaching you do the heat will add to the damage.  What I love is that with my naturally wavy hair I can style it once and literally leave it for days until I need to wash it again without any of the curl coming back.

Hey guys! This is one of my go-to looks for work or any event that requires a more business casual approach.  I wore this exact outfit to a career fair in Philadelphia and I felt confident and comfortable which is most important when trying to sell yourself or your brand.  Pick pieces that flatter your shape and are professional but fashion forward at the same time.

Black & White…

So it’s been a minute but I am back with another outfit that I have been loving lately!  This was from our vacation to South Carolina and we had a great time!  I have gotten so much use out of this $22 Zara dress this summer!  I normally don’t go for white especially with a little one, but I am obsessed with the details and fabric of this easy to wear shift dress!

This Bag is an older Everything Tote by Rebecca Minkoff and you can find solid colors here.  Shoes are also Zara from this summers collection and if you haven’t tried their shoes yet you need to!  They have great sales and I love how fashion forward they are at a  great price point!

Pom pom is from Amazon and can be found here.  Another fave are my sunglasses that I picked up last summer and still loving now!  Check them out here!

Summer Dresses…

Hey guys! Now that summer is officially here I wanted to start sharing some of my favorite looks and new things that I am loving!  Dresses are probably one of my favorite pieces to wear during the summer.  They are so easy and comfortable to wear especially when it’s hot and sticky outside.

Self-Tie Vertical Striped Sleeveless Shirt Dress (M) $20.99

The last dress I want to share with you guys I also love and think would be perfect for any bridal or baby shower.  I absolutely love the blue and white classic stripe and think it is a soft pretty look that will flatter any skin tone!  I also like the pattern paired with these fun Joes Jeans heels.  They are super comfortable and add a great pop of color without being over the top!

Blue White Striped Dress (wearing M)

This first dress I initially picked for a coverup, but the material is really great and will totally work with wedges or flats for a fun lunch during the summer especially on vacation!  This is the perfect pool or beach to lunch or drinks!

Screen Shot 2016-06-13 at 10.53.39 AMDeep V Neck Backless Flare Dress (M) $21.99: 

This next dress I had high hopes for and I think it is really fun!  I found this one on Romwe.com and had plans to wear it for a wedding.  The fabric is a thick scuba material and what I love the most is the color!

Screen Shot 2016-06-13 at 10.53.52 AMWhite Short Sleeve Geometric Print Split Maxi Dress (S) $33.90 

I am obsessed with this long maxi dress!  It is usually hard to find maxi dresses that fit me because I am on the shorter side, but this one is perfect especially with a wedge!  I think this is going to be perfect for a date night or dinner with the girls!  I love the 70’s vibe and think the cut is really flattering and very different from anything I have in my closet!

Thanks for reading!

The Swing Dress…

Hey guys! So I am completely obsessed with this dress and I wanted to share how I wore it on Christmas Day! I love how simple and easy these swing dresses are no matter what time of year it is! I have a few for the summer and knew that this would be perfect for fall and winter!  It was unusually warm this Christmas so I paired the dress with these really festive Schutz heels and really loved the look!
