Happy Friday!

It's finally Friday! I had another post planned but this card came in the mail yesterday from one of my best friends and it totally made me smile, so I figured I just HAD to share it with you! Those two Little girls paying dress up on the front are just too cute!!! I hope you all have a great weekend. Have fun playing dress up for Halloween, and spending time with close friends!

And the winner is....

Thank you to everyone who entered my first giveaway! And a HUGE HUGE thank you to those who have supported my little side business. I really hope you are enjoying your bracelets!!

On to the winner....Congrats to Lorena of COUTURE ME!! Your are the lucky winner of my original "STAN" bracelet, and another little gift as well! There will definitely be another holiday Justina Leigh Giveaway in the future. And just to give you a taste of whats to come, here are some shots of some holiday accessories I've been working on...

I wanted to create a holiday inspired collection that was way more whimsical and more girlish than my other styles. I've used sequin appliques, beaded silk and gross grain bows this time. All appliques are backed with soft fuzzy felt so they feel nice on your skin.

This bracelet is my absolute favorite! I'll be wearing this in various colors, probably every day!


I've even dabbled in some headbands as you can see in the back of the photo there. I'll be giving those as gifts over the holidays. I'm quite obsessed with hair accessories!

These will ALL be up soon on my Etsy shop and be sure to look out for a MAJOR holiday deal!

"To love intensely, be crazy about, be smitten with. To truly respect and value
something or someone with the utmost esteem. Worship. Admire. I like you,
I love you, I adore you!"
I don't know about all of you, but I've become completely smitten with tulle skirts. Those of the tutu variety and even the long gothish variety. I found this one at Forever 21. I also fell in love with this little tank I found in the same shopping outing. The little saying was just too cute! I figured I just had to wear it to dinner ( a little subliminal message to John). We went to Son Cubano in the meatpacking district. I've been to this place a few times before and have never been disappointed till Thursday. We were most definitely rushed through our entire 3 course meal, and then we had to wait a good 25-30 min for our bill at the end. Wasn't the best dinner, but John and I tend to have fun no matter the situation :) Here's some shots of my ridiculously affordable outfit ...

Tulle Skirt: F21

Tank: F21

Shrug: F21 (purchased about a year ago)

Shoes: Steve Madden

Bag: Chanel

Thank you John for being my photographer for the night!!! xo

P.S. Tara @ The Wonder Girl, I guess this is my version of "tutu land" Thanks for the inspiration love!

A small ornamental case for a woman's cosmetics, jewelry, or personal items that is often carried as a handbag.


I'm totally loving these little ladylike, glitzy, glamorous, evening clutches. I wish I could start a mini collection of them but, unfortunately they are just not cheap at all...



I even love these cute kitschy Judith Leiber ones...I mean how can you resist that adorable piglet!!

This is a version I was lucky enough to spot randomly at a little boutique called "KARA" in the Garden State mall while shopping for some work samples. I instantly fell in love and purchased it for a mere $40.00. The only thing I'm still trying to get used to is packing light! So far my poor boyfriends pockets have been bulging with my lip glosses, mascara, cellphone, and wallet, you name it I beg him to carry it! Which is why I don't carry it often. I would drive him bonkers!

Lingerie Lust...

I have an odd obsession with intimates As I'm sure most females do! My favorite kinds are the ones with a super femmenine feel. Ivory Lace, dots, light pinks with black details. I stumbled upon this etsy shop NAOMILINGERIE and I'm just lusting after all these girlie items! You can be sure i'll be adding some of these femminine intimates to my collection. The prices are spot on too!

Just how darn cute are all these peices?!?!?

3:00 Pick me up....and some thoughts...

God its been a long time since I've done a pick me up post....truth is I just haven't really had any fun treats at 3:00 lately!  And I also had made a vow to myself NOT to post every day. After reading some blogging tips over at Grit and Glamour's Blog recently, I realized not only does it totally wear me out juggling a full time 9-6 job, a jewelry line, a boyfriend, a dog, freelance work, and blogging daily, (all things I love but there's not enough time in the day to devote to all) but honestly if its hard for me to keep up with all the wonderful blogs I'm reading over on bloglovin' then it must be the same for everyone else!

To keep my sanity and also not to overload my readers, I was going to take a cue from the lovely Vahni of G&G and schedule myself. Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and possibly a floater day.... (lets see how long I keep this up...I don't do well with schedules)...Anyway this can be my floater day, so here it is my quick little floater post my 3:00 pick me up. Yummy Emeralds cocoa roast 100 calorie pack Almonds. No guilt deliciousness!

After talking my "schedule" out loud with my boyfriend he suggested I let him blog occasionally as the male voice of Myglamourology. Would you readers like that? Not sure what he would post about, but it might be interesting to see! Would love to you know your thoughts!!

Pun'kin Pie Pancakes

Sunday was absolutely beautiful here in Brooklyn. I couldn't have asked for anything more than sunshine pouring into my windows, my boyfriend lying next to me all snuggled up with the pooch, and one of my favorite people in the entire world, my sister, sleeping in the living room with her love.

I love hosting anything be it dinners, or brunches. Since this wasn't a big brunch and it was only the 4 of us I figured I had some time to experiment with something I've been dying to try. Pumpkin Pie Pancakes. A little pumpkin, nutmeg, cinnamon, sugar, flour, laughter from the guests, side commentary from the boyfriend, and a WHOLE big mess later we were enjoying some interesting twists on Pumpkin Pie Pancakes!

Pumpkin Pie Pancakes take 1: Bananas, Peanut butter in between, Whipped Cream, Syrup

Pumpkin Pie Pancakes Take 2: Chocolate chips, Peanut Butter in between, and Syrup

Pumpkin Pie Pancakes Take 3: Chocolate Chips, Bananas, Peanut Butter in between, Whipped cream and Syrup

All versions were decadent and delicious. I had no complaints from my guests, and there was definitely some fun added into our Sunday morning. Although after such a hefty breakfast we couldn't help it but veg on the couch with some football afterwards...... I wasn't too thrilled with the TV selection but thank god for my ipad I spent most of time perusing the Internet!

Did you lovelies have a nice Sunday/weekend? Do or cook anything interesting?

Here is my recipe for Pumpkin Pie Pancakes

  • 1 15oz can pumpkin
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2tblsp brown sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 cup low fat cottage cheese
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2  tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp pumpkin spice
  • 2 1/2 cups milk - separated (more if needed when mix is done)


  • Chocolate Chips
  • Bananas
  • Peanut butter


Put cottage cheese, 1 cup milk, and pumpkin in a blender and blend till smooth. Pour into a large bowl with the rest of the ingredients and beat with a mixer till nice and creamy. Not too thick and not too thin. If the batter is too thick just pour a little more milk. I did a trial run for my mix. the first small pancake trial was too thick, the second was too thin a little more flour and it was just perfect.

Make up Essentials...

When it comes to makeup we all have our favs and I LOVE hearing about everyone's different takes on make up products so I figured I'd let you in on some of mine. A couple of days ago I stopped in Sephora for lipstick. Just one, because I forgot mine at home and I was heading out for some drinks after work. But of course I walk out with way more than lip stick. All items I'm pretty happy with so its all good! I purchased two of these Sephora brand lipsticks and I'm totally hooked! They stay on forever and they go on super smooth! I got No7 and No10 (my fav! a deep rust/red seen in image below), I also got  Nars Sheer Glow Foundation, and this item I did not get from Sephora but it's my all time fav mascara that leaves my lashes looking like little butterflies, L'Oreal Voluminous in Carbon black!

Does anyone else have any must have beauty products?

Polka Dots and Burgers

Sunday was such a beautiful day! One of my girlfriends and I went to go see "The Social Network" Such a good movie! And afterwards we walked on over to Shake Shack where we endured the 30 min line, all for some delicious burgers, fries, and of course shakes! It was so worth it! I wore my over sized big polka dot sweater over a little black knit dress and my gray lace up booties. This isn't my favorite outfit, but I'm obsessed with my sweater. It's so big and cozy, I just want to wear it every day!

Sweater: H&M

Dress: Forever21

Booties: Forever21

Bag: Balenciaga
