The holidays are right around the corner and we are loving everyone’s shoe game! We round up a few of our favorites from the week and couldn’t wait to share what everyone was wearing.

1.  Melanie Pace shows off her very red carpet worthy pumps: the Alycias

2.  Laura Lily is ready to tackle all of her holiday shopping in style with the Yvonna heels and Beatrice pumps

Good vibes are flowing this season, with a little help from this refreshing winter wonder. Say hello to our Minty Hot Cocoa: there’s seldom something better than a good ol’ cup of classic hot cocoa, but this little peppermint twist does the trick. Perfect for get-togethers and definitely worth a try during this holiday season!

Winter is coming, so we’ve prepared ourselves a little libation to keep us warm throughout the coolest of seasons. Sweet, tart, and traditionally a summer drink, this twist is a must-try for rum lovers everywhere: it’s time for us to share the Winter Mojito.

Serving suggestion: pairs well with Queenee.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED (serves one)

8-10 Mint leaves
6-8 Cranberries
1/4 oz. Lime juice
1 1/2 oz. Simple Syrup
1 3/4 oz. Dark Rum

In a cocktail shaker or mixing glass filled with ice, combine all ingredients and shake/stir until well mixed. Strain the contents into a highball glass with fresh ice. Finish by garnishing with mint leaves and cranberries, and enjoy!

And in a blink of an eye, we find ourselves in December. We hope everybody had an amazing Thanksgiving! But every year, we always find it so amusing to come back from break, just to find that there’s only so much of the year left. So let’s make the most of it: while it’s sad that 2014 will be coming to a close, let’s get excited of what’s left and what’s to come! New playlist up: this one sounds GREAT on repeat. ;)

I was wondering how amazing the L.A. girls we work with were in real life; turns out they’re beyond wonderful. We all met on the rooftop terrace of the London Hotel in West Hollywood [Selfie central] for a tea party. I nixed my fake British/Madonna accent the instant I realized how real, pretty, and really pretty they are.

Along with other gorgeous girls like Katherine McNamara, Ava Allan, Alexi Blue, Elizabeth Keene, and Thania Peck, Ashley Tisdale was there. I love Ashley for more reasons than just the fact that she supports St. Jude Children’s Researcg Hospital and cancer awareness—a cause that hits very close to home [by hoME, I mean ME].

Here’s what I saw:

Black and blue: Nothing beats a look that combines coal colors with a punch of cobalt.

03

More Black: All black is a thing. Monochromatic is so dramatic.

04

Hot in cold: It was a bone-chilling 65 degrees that day and yet many braved our favorite atypical fall/winter pieces including tanks, shorts, sandals, skirts, and peep toes.

(P to the S: Blue is clearly the filter of the season)

There’s nothing quite like an AM stroll on a crisp November morning. Whether you’re walking to work or dropping in for morning coffee, you simply can’t beat that refreshing fall air. But it can get a little chilly during this time of year, so be sure to bundle up, and/or take these tunes with you: because all you really need is a hot beat to warm you up.

…of course, the right accessory can help keep you warm too!
