It's only November, but the holidays have already started at our house with Cherie's first birthday this week. It is such an incredible milestone and to be honest, I'm really proud of what I have accomplished this year in terms of raising her. I think us women often don't give ourselves enough credit for what we do day to day, constantly doubting ourselves and questioning our choices and decisions, but milestones like this are a great occasion to reflect and realize how far we have come. So cheers to that :)
I put together today's look already very much with the holiday spirit in mind, with a tulle skirt, fluffy knit sweater and pearl necklace. We have been blessed with a really warm weather here in Tuscany so I've been taking full advantage of it, going bare legged and without a coat. I have a feeling it won't last very long, so I'm enjoying every last minute of it.
I've long been a fan of styling tulle skirts in casual outfits and I got this one from Sammydress just in time for the holidays. It is cream tulle over a bordeaux underskirt and it has an almost golden shine to it which I love. A great skirt for those days when you want to feel like a princess.

Aegyo sal is a Korean fashion for creating a desired puffy eyed look. The most natural way to achieve this look without surgery is with the help of a special aegyo sal tape. Aegyolab's tape creates a very natural peachy under eye bag look. This tape is undetectable and it will give your eyes a cute, smiling, slightly enlarged look. It is particularly suitable for Asian eyes, but can be successfully used by anyone without adding any makeup. The product costs $17 and the company offers free shipping.
