Karizma's "Year of Yes"!

Hi Fabs,

Happy New Year! Super late, I know! I hope that 2016 has been awesome for you. So, for Christmas I received Shonda Rhimes (the creator of all of your Thursday night obsessions) book, "Year of Yes" and I was soooo excited! I am always looking for inspirational and positive materials to make me a better human.
This book is so great! We get a glimpse into the personality of the phenomenal creative mind of Shonda Rhimes. When I read this, it felt like I was transported to Shonda's living room with a glass of wine and popcorn ad just chatting with her. Shonda is so funny and real. A short synopsis, Shonda is told by her sister, that she never says yes to anything, and she later embarks on "year of yes" to all the things that she has been fearful of. She takes on her journey of her "year of yes". 

So, following Shonda's example, I have decided to embark my "year of yes". My "year of yes" is focused on me saying "yes" to things that make me happy. A lot of the time, I am always saying "yes" to make others happy but this year, it's all about me! Yes to growing, learning, changing, evolving and loving myself!

Come on this journey with me!

Keepin' It Cozy, Comfy & Cute this Thanksgiving

Hi Fabs,

Did ya miss me? I missed you! After a few busy weeks including traveling for work, I am back and it's already almost Thanksgiving! If you are like me, Thanksgiving is about three major things: Family, Food and Comfort! I like to look pulled together but I want be comfy as possible for all the good eats and lounging that will be happening. I picked some of my favorite comfy pieces to rock this Thanksgiving to have room for all the turkey you will consume and still look stylish while doing so.

Fall-ify Your Home: The "Gold" Way

Hi Fabs,

As Fall steadily approaches, I am gearing up my wardrobe as well as my home. I like to add small touches to my apartment. I am always surprised at the difference just a few small changes can make. Let me remind you, that I live in a studio in NYC, so I don't have much square footage to make substantial changes nor the budget too either. So, I try to use small upgrades to make an impact and keep it basic. By basic, I mean keep a neutral theme in order to reuse and not have to buy stuff every season. In my eyes, gold is a neutral.

What are ways that you "Fall-ify" your home?
