B.A.D. Girl Style: Parka Jackets & Coats

I’ve been wanting a parka style jacket for a minute so when my mom told me the one she had recently bought didn’t fit her right I jumped at the opportunity to snatch it. She purchased it from Bloomingdales, but I have no idea the brand. The tag just says s +p. Regardless, I am obsessed  and haven’t stopped wearing it since the cold weather hit the east coast! What you cant see on this jacket because of my scarf is the removable fur trim around the collar. I like that the lining and fur are removable because that means I will still be able to wear the jacket when Spring gets here.  I also love the corset style detail on the back of the jacket. Parka: Bloomingdales – Beanie: H&M – Scarf: Xmas Gift from Kim! – Jeans: Mng by Mango – Boots: H&M – Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs – Sunnies: Kenneth Cole Parkas are great for an everyday jacket/coat that you can wear year round since many of them have removable linings, …

As soon as we turn on the heat indoors our skin starts to dry out so its important that we take the necessary steps to keep our skin soft and flake free. Here are my top tips for battling itchy dry skin this season: Avoid hot showers and limit your time spent in them. Hot water strips your skin of its natural oils. Use warm water instead.

Use a face serum in addition to your daily moisturizer Switch up your face wash for a cleansing milk or mild foaming cleanser. Invest in a humidifier to increase  moisture in the air.  Another solution is to place bowls of water in the room …

Your relationship should be a judgment free zone, full of respect, hot cocoa & cuddling!

Let it be (B)eautiful: The cold weather is here, which means everyone wants a cuddle buddy. If you are fortunate enough to have one than you best make sure you take full advantage. Hot cocoa, a good flick , and a warm blanket sounds divine. Let it be (A)uthentic: I love how if I am having a rough/emotional/stressful day I can go to my guy fall into his arms and let out a good cry. Your relationship should be a judgment free zone. No make up on, bad hair day, PMS and all, you should feel comfortable being you. Let it be (D)etermined to Last: Respect. This one word says it all. If you don’t respect your partners feelings expect your relationship to have a first class seat on a train to nowhere. If your partner feels differently than you do, instead of flipping out, take a second to understand their side. This is where communication comes in. Take a few minutes where you both explain your point of view, put your pride on a …
