Until Next Time

As you may have noticed, my posting over the past few months has been unpredictable. As a result of my busy schedule and life events that are far too important to not give my full time and attention, I'm going to be taking a break from regular blogging.

This blog has become an outlet for me, at times, to cope with hectic situations and stress. This place has been my release. Unfortunately, though, at this point, it is best for me to walk away for a while and regroup and refocus.

It may not seem worthy of an entire post, but I felt I owed you an explanation considering the loyalty you've shown me.

I'll be posting occasionally, just not everyday or even every week. In the meantime, I'll still be tumbling, pinning, and tweeting. You're welcomed to join me there.

Until next time. . .

Fashion Resolution: White Out



 (Images via 1, 2)


White is a color that I don't utilize enough. It's crisp, clean, and can be just the touch that an outfit needs. Whenever I think 'white,' my mind immediately goes to the scenes in the SATC movie with Miss Bradshaw sporting that white Halston Heritage dress, with the sparkly gold Louboutins!

Is white a favorite fashion color of yours? Or are you like me and resolving to add more of it to your wardrobe?

BeB Partnership + Giveaway: Sneakpeeq

Hello, readers!

I'm so excited to announce today that Brown Eyed Belle is partnering with the social shopping company, Sneakpeeq! Sneakpeeq was recently launched as a Facebook app and is the fastest growing company of its kind with over 300,000 users.


Shoppers sign up using your Facebook login information and are able to 'peeq' at the fabulous items based on points earned. The more points you earn, the more items you're able to view, and decide if you want to purchase. Sneakpeeq was named one of the 'Top 10 Best Social Apps of 2011,' ranking with the likes of Pinterest and Instagram.

The ultimate goal for the BeB - Sneakpeeq partnership is to build a microboutique branded around my blog so that readers can shop right here! How amazing will that be?! That phase is still a few months away but certainly something to be excited about!

**

To kick off this exciting venture, Sneakpeeq is hosting a fantastic giveaway for BeB readers. Everyone who registers with Sneakpeeq via this link will be entered to win these prizes:



One grand prize: $25 gift card




Two runners-up: One $10 gift card


Everyone who registers, though, will receive 20% off their next purchase!

The rules are simple! Register using this special link, the gang at Sneakpeeq will be tracking registries on their end via the BeB link, so comments on this post aren't necessary. Yes, that simple!

The Sneakpeeq boutiques have incredibly low prices, either gift card or the discount will go a long way!

The giveaway will be open until January 30th, and I'll announce the winners on the 31st.


Happy 'peeqing' and good luck, everyone!

Weekend Wishes: Warm & Cozy

It's currently twenty-four degrees here and snow is whisping through the air. While we didn't get a full snow day, we were on a snow schedule this morning. Those extra moments to snooze under the plaid fluffy comforter with the ceiling fan on low were absolute bliss. Of course, Millie was snuggled right up next to me the whole time.


Thank you for another fantastic week on the blog. I have a very exciting announcement Monday that includes a giveaway you won't want to miss!

Wishing you and yours a very warm and cozy winter weekend!

PS: I'm now on Pinterest, as well. Hop on over and follow along as I build my inspiration boards! I updated the look of my tumblr too. Hope you'll join me!

Fashion Resolution: Bold Colors

I'm not a fan of new year's resolutions, by any means. But setting goals for being more creative with my wardrobe and fashion purchases over the next year? Sign me up!

My first resolution is to add brighter colors (and color combinations) to my routine. I'm talking bold, bright, striking pieces, like the neon jeans in my set below.

In the Nude



 (Images via Belle of the Ball)


If I had to choose one color and style of shoes to wear for the rest of my life it would certainly be a pair of nude heels. They're the universal option for any and every outfit- at least in my closet! There are tons of options out there, too- platforms, two-tone, pointy toe, round toe- the list goes on. They're a staple that can transform any outfit, casual or dressy. 

Below are a few of my favorite options.
