Fall Fever With Wanderess World

Fall Fever With Wanderess World

Fall is in the air, or at least I thought it was before mother nature sprung 83 degrees our way. 

There are few things better than fall fashion, one of them being the infinite pumpkin flavored items that are stocked on every stores shelves (this was proven to be true when I tried pumpkin flavored tortilla chips and macaroons for the first time WOW). 

I find the best season to experiment with fashion ends up being the fall. The weather is just right and our favorite stores finally get their heads back in the game and hand us coveted trends on a silver platter. 

One of my favorite humans that I have mentioned too many times to count; Nicole, was dressed in the THE perfect fall outfit. OUTFIT OF THE DAY TIME LEZ DO IT.


For this look Nicole is wearing  ⇓⇓

Frayed & ripped skinny jeans, paired with an off the shoulder quarter sleeve top both from Urban Outfitters, open toed nude booties from Dolce Vita for Target, a patterned orange scarf from India, and all da jewels from Free People mixed with Urban.




I mean…. need I say more???







If you are unsure of how to handle fall fashion, have no fear. Finding the basics is the most important step, and then from there Zara is your playground. Having a good pair of ripped jeans can take you a really long way. Not to mention nude booties can take you from school, to dinner to a night out on the town. 

Being that fall fashion is my favorite, I am SO excited for future outfit posts. I haven’t been online shopping instead of sleeping just for shits and giggles ya know. 

Also, shout out to my badass blondie girlfrand Nicole for allowing me to take an aggressive amount of photos of her. Check out Nicole on her blog, Wanderess World as well as her Instagram

Feeling Zen

Feeling Zen

I know I know, it’s time I stop talking about chokers. Or is it? I just can’t help it, okay!?

When I come across a good deal on something I love, I feel the need to share it with others! I came across a brand called UltimateZen  via Instagram, and have been hooked ever since. 

UltimateZen sells their chokers and other products on Etsy which is a jewelry addicts dream, with unbeatable prices. 

I was given the opportunity to try out some of these chokers and I have been wearing them with almost every outfit. Take a look:







Blush Velvet Choker 


Blush Velvet Choker 



Kimiko Petite Wrap Necklace



Mini O Seiki Choker 

My favorite so far is the gold Mini O Seiki choker. One of my favorite things to do is layer dainty necklaces and this one is perfect for just that. The blush velvet choker is a must have as well and adds the perfect pop to a monochromatic or funky look. 

Check out some of these chokers if you want to add a little spunk to your fall wardrobe:)

Lets talk: Colourpop

Lets talk: Colourpop

Well I finally did it. I let my will power (that I never really had to begin with) disappear into thin air as I placed my order with Colourpop #onlineshoppingaddictionstillgoingstrong.

 Quite frankly, I am not sure why it took me so long to do so!

I placed an order with Colourpop during their Labor Day promotion (if you spent a certain amount you would get a certain number of items free) and of course I spent the amount that allowed me to get all 5 items for free #prayforsami2016.

I was SO unbelievably excited to receive my order in the mail and it’s safe to say it completely exceeded my expectations. 


Let’s get into what I purchased shall we?!


Sequin, La La, Tang, Stereo, Nillionaire



Swatches top to bottom: Flexitarian Face Highlighter, La La Eyeshadow, Sequin Eyeshadow


Above NO FLASH, below FLASH



Lippie Stix top to bottom: Brink, Bound, Tootsi, Lumiere  

Ultra Matte Lip top to bottom: Viper, Love Bug, Time Square, Notion




Ultra Matte Lip top to bottom: Times Square, Notion, Viper, Love Bug



Let’s talk:

I have to say, after experimenting with some of these products I’M IN LOVE. I am not only blown away by the price (nothing was more than 8 dollars), but the quality compares and beats some of my higher end makeup. 

The Lippie Stix in particular are my favorites. I am not one to throw on a lip product and go on my merry way, mostly because I usually stop at chapstick. However, the Lippie Stix are incredibly light weight while giving you the perfect amount of color. Not to mention, they are so moisturizing. 

The eyeshadows and highlighter are so buttery and smooth and you couldn’t ask for better color pay off, especially at the price AM I RIGHT LADIES. 

If you are lacking in the eyeshadow, lip or highlighter department I would highly recommend checking out Colourpop! Just in time for fall ♥ 

Hope you enjoyed this post! Many more to come:)

Sit Down With Sami Podcast ft. Nicole

Sit Down With Sami Podcast ft. Nicole

Shalom friends!

This past week for my journalism class, we were assigned something quite different. As an avid podcast listener I never pictured myself making one of my own, but I ended up doing just that! This week I sat down with my beautiful fashionista friend Nicole and chatted about all things fashion. 

We dove right into an article I found on Elle which displayed all of the hottest trends that are making their way from the runway to our coveted department stores. Lets just say… some of them should definitely stay there.

Check out my podcast and Sit Down Sami (ha! clever am I right?) Let me know your thoughts on these trends and if some of them hurt your soul just like they did mine.




Don’t forget to check out Nicole on social media and over on her blog

What’s In My Bag?

What’s In My Bag?

If you read one of my latest blog posts, you would know that I received a gorgeous Saint Laurent handbag for my birthday. (If you haven’t read it go check it out here). Being that I showed you the outside I thought it was only right to show you the inside as well.



I am an avid watcher of Youtube, and one of my favorite videos to binge watch has always been “what’s in my bag” videos. There is just something about seeing what another girl keeps in her handbag that intrigues me. Plus, I’m nosy when it comes to this stuff and love getting ideas for myself.

Whenever I get a new bag, the first thing I want to do is organize it. In most circumstances it doesn’t remain that pristine for long, but this bag is WAY too special to me for me to allow it to get cluttered (if you opened up my suitcase sized Longchamp you would discover that I am in fact a hoarder). 

So what is in my bag you ask? Lets see!


I like to keep a makeup bag to store all of those items we find ourselves needing throughout the day. I am THAT girl that has a life supply of Advil, floss, probably a first aid kit, 97 bandaids, probably a blow dryer and maybe even a game of Twister. Who knows man.


In my makeup bag: spare contact case, eye drops, Advil, floss (not kidding I am literally a lunatic), First Aid Beauty Lip Therapy, mini Wet Brush, DKNY rollerball perfume, Burts Bees Chapstick, Pacifica Blood Orange hand lotion, Tarte large powder brush, Makeup Forever HD Matifying powder, Elf Blotting Sheets, Chanel Mascara, Sephora Mirror, Orbit gum, Colourpop Lippie Stix 


My new little babes that I just found, from Forever 21. Mirrored lenses (that look black in this photo) with clear frames that I have been searching for for SO long.


My personal “Oh Shit Kit” that has been the perfect storage for coupons, gift cards and receipts that I don’t want to lose! (Thank you Dara) (Purchased on Etsy)


Not shown: Wallet & phone, but those are a given! What do you keep in your bag? I hope you enjoyed♥
