saying goodbye to 2013
2013 was a great year for me! So many exciting things happened for me! I made some pretty great memories with Matt, I graduated from college, and so much more! I also started my blog this year, and it has been such an amazing expierience. I had no idea how much fun blogging would be, and that I would meet so many amazing friends! I feel like my blog has come a long way, I have a lot of goals for my little piece of property on the internet for 2014, so get ready for some new and exciting things.

 I also just updated my advertising/sponsoring options. I have some great packages available and they can really help your blog/site with exposure! Check the packages out HERE. 

Since today is the last day of 2013 I wanted to say goodbye to year by showing off some of my favorite outfits from the year! Happy New Years Eve everyone! :) See ya in 2014;)

casual and a giveaway
My schedule has been so crazy for me lately, and I'm constantly on the go. And I just need a casual comfy outfit, but this outfit is just that,and its totally adorable. Saying I love this top would be an understatement! Its from Riffraff, and I'm obsessed with it, the color, the material, the silhouette. These are the best tops to have because they can be worn causal like I did here, or dressed up. Its very versatile, and it can be styled so many ways I think. Oh and random note, I am also obsessed with this new lip color! Its NYX and only 5 dollars?! Double win! Its the soft matte lip cream in the San Paulo color, y'all need to try it out! You can buy it at Ulta!

Happy Friday Everyone! I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas! I'm going to keep this post short and sweet today. 

I have been wanting a faux fur vest for like forever, and I finally found the perfect one. Last weekend I was at the mall with Matt shopping for Christmas presents, but I found this darling new little boutique called Lemon Ice, and I found this beauty in it. I fell in love with it, and I knew I needed to have it. Lemon Ice is in University Mall for all y'all Utah locals. But I paired it with another favorite piece from Gypsy05, this shirt is so comfortable, and my new favorite booties!

hello dear...

23 December 2013

hello dear...
The snow in these pictures are so appropriate for these next couple days! I just thought they were so pretty too, although I was definitely freezing my butt off! But I just LOVE this hello dear... tee from Riffraff! When I saw it, I knew I needed to have it! Y'all know how much I love a good graphic tee, and I needed to add this to my collection. I wanted to style this tee a little different then just a pair of jeans, so I paired it with some black and red pieces to go along with the tee. I used a black dress as a skirt, I didn't have a black long skirt, so I thought this would be perfect. I also wore some fun red booties, I think they give the outfit a little edge.

Matt and I are up in Salt Lake at his parents house, and it snowed so much up here. Its so beautiful, like a winter wonderland! I absolutely love it, this time of year is just so magical. You'll find me watching Christmas movies, and drinking hot chocolate by the fireplace the next couple days. And today probably a little last minute Christmas shopping, haha. I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!!! :) Enjoy some good quality family time during the best time of the year y'all:)

And the winner of the Gypsy05 Jumper Giveaway is: Lola Vine! Please email me at to claim your prize! Thanks to all those who entered!! :)

biker jacket

biker jacket
Happy Friday Everyone:) Aren't Fridays the best?! I'm so glad its the weekend, and Christmas is literally around the corner! I still have so much to do though! So its going to come by so fast.

I bought this leather biker jacket a couple weeks ago at H&M, and I'm so glad I did. I had been eyeing it for awhile but didn't want to spend the money on it, but I couldn't stop thinking about it. So I figured that means that I really should get it, and it would be a good purchase, and it was. I can't stop wearing it! Its my new favorite thing in my closet. And I love that it can make a whole outfit! Like this outfit here, without the jacket its a very simple outfit but then you throw the biker jacket on, it makes the whole look. I just love it, and I would highly recommend to everyone that this a great jacket, and its something that you want in your closet! But I love everything about this outfit. especially the pop of red, it really stands out with all the black. 
Don't forget about the Gypsy05 Jumper Giveaway, you can still enter HERE!

jumper and a giveaway

jumper and a giveaway
Usually when getting dressed, I can be a bit reserved and stick with things that I'm comfortable with. I've always been hesitant about wearing jumpers but I'm in love with this silk Gypsy05 jumper! I'm glad that I stepped out of my clothing comfort zone with this one, because its just so pretty! Its so soft and comfortable, but its a pretty dressy outfit. I love the deep rich color, and the black sleeves. And I think its great, because its something I can wear now in these cold months, or even in the Spring with some sandals.

 Gypsy05 and I teamed up to give away one of these adorable jumpers to one lucky Blushing Boulevard reader! Just enter on the Rafflecopter widget below, and you can enter until Monday the 23rd. The winner will be announced after Christmas on the 26th! But if you can't wait, Gypsy05 is also giving all my readers a 15% discount so go to their site and buy yourself a little Christmas present:) Just use the code: BLUSHINGBLVD at checkout!  I seriously love everything at Gypsy05, just so fun and different, so I'm sure y'all will find tons of things that y'all will want to buy!
