Alex & Ani: Numerology

This Alex & Ani addict is dying for a trip to the Newbury Street store– the holiday collections are just calling my name!  I’m surprised, though, at how interested I am in the Numerology Collection.  What I love about Alex & Ani is how much these little symbols inspire me, and I think everyone feels tied to specific numbers.

These numbers go beyond your birthdate– each makes a statement, so here’s my when-to-wear guide!  Also, since the holiday season is right around the corner, I’ve included a gift guide here too!

Seasonal Sparkle

Happy Friday, my loves!  I don’t know about you, but I’ve had just about the roughest week imaginable.  To combat that, I like to treat myself!

I love a good statement necklace, especially during the fall and winter when we’re so buttoned up!  Recently, I’ve added this baby from Mirina Collections to my rotation.

We all could use that extra spark of something in these post-daylight savings months.  These elaborate beauties would make great gifts with the holidays approaching, or a great contribution to a holiday outfit!  You can snag anything on the site for 20% off using the code “nikki” so shop around and let me know what you pick!

Have a great weekend!

Scream Queens: Beware of Young Girls

IMG_2135

How cruel of Scream Queens to delay this episode a whole week!  But it was a good one.  Here are my assorted thoughts and favorite quotes:

  • We knew we’d see Ariana Grande again.  I thought maybe that coffin shot was it, but yay for another Chanel no. 2 appearance!  I also thought every detail of this funeral was perfection.
  • Also, no. 3’s necklace is clearly from Bauble Bar.  I even blogged about it here.  The plentiful pearl baubles in this show have long given me the Bauble Bar-vibe, so I think this confirms it!
  • Love a good Ouija board.  Love the joke about the movie Ouija which I will never see.
  • Gigi was on the phone with said red devil who she knows and loves.  I think this could be the baby!
  • What is the deal with Grace and Gigi going shopping together?  Why is every relationship Grace’s father has so freaking weird?
  • HOW GREAT IS THE MUSIC IN THIS SHOW.
  • Oh goodness, the “just a head” pun.  I love it.
  • “Why do you have 9 tampons in your purse?”
  • The VIGOR with which Billie Lourd says “KIX” cracks me up.
  • “How do you even crush a diamond?  It’s like the hardest substance on earth!”
  • I want Chanel’s bed.
  • “There’s no dinosaurs?”
  • Chanel’s grasp on rat poison is much better than mine.
  • This was Jamie Lee Curtis’s episode, man.  That whole last scene!

Can I just be really honest with you guys for a second?  Why does KKT allow Grace to wear such hideous clothes?  Like, I was never in a sorority, nor do I believe this to be a factual representation of one, but there seems to be quite a bit of conformity amongst the Chanels and the KKT sisters of the past.  If anything, Grace needs a fashion influence.  Her clothes actually offend me.  I love the color palette of KKT, even though I live a life of neutrals, this pastel paradise is the real me.  It reminds me of Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette.

I think I’ve decided that Grace isn’t the protagonist of this show.  I hate her.  Do you?

Let’s hear your thoughts & theories, hookers!

October Favorites

Many a Youtuber has asked, is the 4th too late for a monthly favorites video?  The answer, of course, is no… because mine seems to always land on the fourth of the next month!  Truthfully, this video has been up for a while, but today is the day I’m sharing it on the blog.

Go ahead and watch to see what I’ve been loving lately!
