Sparkle into the New Year!


Happy almost New Years everyone! Starting a new year always excited me. Whether or not I keep my resolutions it’s so great taking the time to make them and think about what I want for the new year. New Years eve, it’s my favorite time to break out the sparkles and sequins and shimmer my way into the new year.

Photoed above are some of my top picks and what I’m using tonight to get ready for the parties I’m going to tonight. Admittedly for the Christian Louboutin lipstick, I want to wear it as a necklace more so then wear the nude shade I purchased. It’s also a perfect time to use my new Kate Spade Cedar Street Dot Card Holder. It’s a clutch friendly wallet alternative (it holds 3 cards and has a pocket for money). It’s originally $48 but on sale right now for $38 plus 25% off (which brings it to $28.50), major score!

Body glitter is not my thing but I do believe in glowing from within and nothing makes that happen for me more then a killer fragrance that makes me feel like a million bucks. I’m currently having a love affair with Kilian’s Love & Tears, Surrender fragrance. It’s a blend of Jasmine with orange blossom undertones and is so incredibly sexy! I recently met Kilian himself earlier this month at Bergdorfs where I was introduced to fragrance and have been carrying around my travel sample ever since.

California love…

Hi  my loves! For all of you regulars to the site, you know I haven’t been on my game when it comes to posting. My daily posts morphed into just a few a week, which I need to put an end to! Despite how it may seem, I have been doing everything but taking a break. In actuality, the blog has never been busier! I’ve been traveling so much and doing so many collaborations that by the time I finish the long hours my brain is too tried to write (I know, terrible excuse!).  But you can always follow me at @prettyconnected on instagram for all of my latest adventures and event coverage and beauty discoveries. I’ve been back for a week now in NYC but I wanted to recap my 10 day trip to LA, since it was such an amazing experience. And I’ve been considering moving there for some time now!

Pretty Connected photo shoot
On set with Glam.com and Carefree

I came out to LA for a shoot with Glam.com, sponsored by Carefree. We shot 3 videos: How to pack to pack for a weekend trip, How to get ready in 5 minutes in the morning, and How to organize your lingerie draw, and it was so fun! All of the tips in the videos are mine so I’ll be sharing those over the next few months as they launch. The shoot took play in Pasadena, which is a beautiful suburb of LA. In all of my 10+ times to Los Angeles, I’d never been to Pasadena (and it’s only about 15 minutes for Downtown).
