As a huge fan of Taylor Swift and her always fabulous red carpet looks, Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift has become my latest fragrance obsession. What I love most about this fragrance (aside from its beautiful packaging) is that it’s perfect for everyday wear. According to Beauty.com, Wonderstruck’s top notes are raspberry, dewberry, green tea, freesia and apple blossom. The middle notes are sweet vanilla along with sun-drenched honeysuckle and white hibiscus while its base notes are golden amber, musk, sandalwood and peach. Though the scent is classified as fruity, all of its elements are incredibly subtile, never overly sweet.
In celebration of my favorite fragrance, I’m giving away a bottle of 1.7 fl oz Wonderstruck by Taylor Swift Eau de Parfum to four lucky readers. So if you want to smell like a girl who just broke up with her boyfriend and wrote a kick ass song about it, follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Then leave a comment on this post with your email and favorite Taylor Swift song to complete your chances of winning. I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22!
*This giveaway is open to residents of the continental US only. It will run from May 31, 2014 – June 30, 2014. Winners will be contacted via email around July 1, 2014.

I often find that some of the most beautiful and unique designs are made by eco and socially conscious brands. Inkkas, a custom-made brand of shoes handcrafted at a family-owned workshop in Lima, Peru is currently looking to raise funds to bring the company’s fall line to the U.S. market. In addition to bringing genuine South American shoes to the U.S., a portion of all proceeds are donated to local South American communities to help protect the Amazon rainforest and its’ native inhabitants. Since I love a good cause and original design, I’m giving away a pair of Inkkas from their 2013 collection. Here are the options:
Slate Slip Ons
Leather Midtop Montezuma
Cotton Candy Slip On
Leather Midtop Desert
*To win a pair of Inkkas, leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite pair, shoe size, and email.
It is once again that time of year where we wonder where the time has gone and search for the perfect gifts in between hot chocolate, holiday specials, and hoping for snow. Though I love the holidays, I prefer to skip the endless lines and crazy traffic at the stores. Therefore, online shopping is an absolute must and this year, I’ll be shopping this season’s must-have holiday items on InStyle.com. The InStyle Holiday Boutique is a limited time, exclusive pop-up gift shop living on InStyle.com from November 11th to December 27th of 2013. It features holiday gifts from over 30 fashion-forward brands and carries everything from designer fashion to accessories, beauty, and contemporary fashion making it perfect for treating both your loved ones and yourself this Holiday Season. I’ve always wanted to be able to shop the outfits and accessories directly from the pages of InStyle and now I actually can just in time for the holidays!
After browsing through the InStyle Holiday Boutique, one of my favorite features (besides seeing the editors’ picks) was the Love List where you can save all your favorite items the way you did when you made Christmas lists for Santa as a kid. Here are five of my fav finds from my love list found in the InStyle Accessories section. Accessories always make excellent holiday gifts and you shouldn’t miss the chance to start off the new year with a few new accessories of your own.
