Embroidered Dreamy Dress

I sure felt like a princess in a fairy-tale wearing this dreamy embroidered dress. Phazazz in tow and all made for a picture perfect day! I can surely see this Chicwish beauty strolling around Holiday parties and as a spring fling presence as well. And that my friends is what appeals to me most about this dress, it's versatility. I went for a simple fall vibe here with a pair of beige booties and wore my hair down in soft waves. Dress // Booties // Bag [show_shopthepost_widget id="2952763"] Other possibilities include (but are not limited to) a more elaborate occasion such as a holiday party as I mentioned or a nice dinner. I would wear it with a pair of nude or red pumps, or dressy booties with a stiletto heel. A (faux) fur coat would…

Olly Girl Multivitamins – Part II

Bella and Sophia horse Olly Girl campaign

*This post is a part of a sponsored campaign with Olly Girl. As always all opinions are my honest and own experience. Thanks for supporting the brands that support me. Since the girls have been taking their Olly Girl vitamins for over a month I wanted to circle back and tell you some of the things we noticed in their daily lives. As a refresher (or if you didn't catch our first post) Olly Girl is a multivitamin gummy especially designed with the needs of growing ladies ages 12-17 in mind. Their multivitamin is formulated with Biotin to target strong hair, skin and nails. It contains vitamin C which plays a role in collagen production (something I know they'll thank me later in their lives). It supports bone health and keeps their immune systems in check. Besides…

Oversized Sweater + The Best (affordable) OTK Boots

grey otk boots with pink sweater

Can't stop won't stop!! Well maybe I will give you guys a break from the girlish cuteness but only after this! Haha!! So, if you like the idea of the oversized sweaters but you're worried about being too cold to wear them alone (after all most of these won't fit under our jackets) I wanted to show you one I found to be as warm as a jacket, with bonus points for being soft to the touch and against skin plus some extra cuteness!  This Goodnight Macaroon  hand-knit giant oversized pompom cutie just won my heart! It's toasty and kept me warm layered with a thin tee to run errands outdoors in this super chilly day here in Indy.

Chunky Sweater Weather

Chicwish pompom sweater

This is not your typical sweater season, it's more like the chunky froufrou sweater season! This year styles are so girly (right up my alley I must say!) full of pompons and pretty textures. I love the endless options! When I saw this adorable sweater from Chicwish on a few of my blogger friends I got the giggles and knew I had to have it! Chicwish just takes the girly attitude to the next level! When the sweater arrived I don't know why, but I instantly thought I had to get myself on a horse, and thanks to Jody and Jenny I was able to shoot with this gorgeous Arabian horse named Phazazz! Turtleneck sweater // Jeans // Boots similar Here & Here // Earrings // Belt similar [show_shopthepost_widget id="2936249"] The idea here was to pull an equestrian inspired…

KeraHealth France Review

KeraHealth Hair supplement with kercysteine - Karina Style Diaires

You guys know I'm all about healthy choices when it comes to food (although I have been making some shameful choices lately - must confess!!) such choices affect not only the health of our bodies but our hair, skin and nails as well. Like that saying goes "You are what you eat" I believe it 100% . Now some exceptions to this rule are genetics and diseases that are not necessarily related to eating habits, other than that we all need to get our acts together and make better choices! On the other hand though we can simplify the quest for healthy hair with a supplement that will deliver the nutritional components our hair needs the most right into its root! Quite literally :) I'm talking about the newest launch in the health and…

Embroidered See Through Tops

Embroidered see through top and otk boots

I'm sure you have seen this trend going around whether on dresses or blouses! I styled a see-through Shein Top with plain skinny jeans and my fave pair of Over-The-Knee boots. The options to style this top however are endless! They can go from basic and casual like mine all the way to dressy - think leather pants; pencil skirts and even plain old lacy lingerie (that's for the risqué gal pals!!). I'm giving you a few options here since this particular top is sold out! Shop the look: [show_shopthepost_widget id="2883900"] You may be guessing this look was shot a few weeks ago when it was in fact warm and sunny out here in Indy. Well I can assure you this top will look fab with a distressed leather jacket ( I like this one and…

Botox, Voluma, Volbella Vlog + Results + Review

Hey guys! Today I'll be touching on a very controversial subject. Some of you might have done some of these beauty treatments/procedures and have no problem talking about it. Some others may think it's dangerous and/or wrong. I just wanted to start by saying I'm not trying to glamorize or entice you to have something done but rather be up front about it (not everyone can admit they do it), be informative and help you make a decision on whether this is right for you. *I was gifted my treatments by Interface Group all statements are my honest opinions and/or reviews.* The video is a vlog of the treatments I had done as well as an "after treatment" talk. You'll be able to see what everything looks like after about 4 weeks of having everything done…

Beauty Favorites + Fall Must-Haves!

[show_shopthepost_widget id="2872603"] Hi y'all, I wanted to do a quick roud up of my latest favorites in the beauty section! For starters I'm obsessed about Dior products lately. It just feels so lux and leaves my skin feeling and looking fresh and renewed! These 4 items were gifted to me from Dior via Octoly and I can't get enough. All photos credited to Erinn Bridgman from Bridging Her Story Dior Hydra Life Sorbet Creme  I love the gel like texture and "green" smell of this lightweight creme. This is incredibly moisturizing for a gel product, I love to use it at night and during the day under my SPF when my face needs some extra love. It provides a 24hr hydration and makes my skin feels plump and radiant throughout the day! Dior Capture…
