Kate Spade... meet Brad Goreski

I don't know how you feel about this, but I think it's such a no brainer I'm not sure why it hasn't already happened.  Former Rachel Zoe assistant Brad Goreski has really come into his own since leaving Zoe.  You may hate him but I say you have to go get what you want and it's safe to say he is doing that.  He has a monthly style section in Lucky Magazine and now he is the Kate Spade exclusive brand stylist! {can we say jealous??}. Oh not to mention his Bravo TV show that debuts on Monday {It's a Brad Brad World}.

The goal of this new partnership is to broaden the awareness of the ready-to-wear line.  Kate Spade has long been known for her amazingly girly, bright, fun accessories and it's safe to say the apparel will be no different!  Goreski will also style for press release events, ad campaigns, fashion presentations, and e-commerce shoots. 

I think this is a match made in heaven and can't wait to see what they both come up with! Stay tuned for more on one of my favorite lines Kate Spade... {I mean if you haven't walked into a Kate Spade store lately do it... it's an INSTANT mood booster!}

Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas Lovely people!!!

I apologize for the HUGE delay but I have been thoroughly enjoying the season {even if my waistline is NOT thoroughly enjoying it}.  I hope everyone got something that they wanted, had delicious food, flowing wine, laughter, and games {just like mine!}.

I will be back in full force tomorrow when I finally come back to reality.

Guest Post :: Healthy and Happy Hour!

Hi Everyone!

This is my first guest blog post for Pretty in Pink Style, and I’m pretty excited about it. Can’t say I consider myself too much of a fashionista so I love reading the tips  Molly pulls together! Hopefully she can save my wardrobe, while I save your waistlines J.

I am a registered dietitian (yes, same thing as nutritionist but with actual training) and love figuring out ways for young professionals to stay healthy while having fun. (Skinny) cocktails are always on my menu! Here are my top five tips for dining during the holidays.

1.       Go the party at least a little bit hungry. Most people will tell you not to go on an empty stomach. You needn’t be ravenous, but unless you have willpower of steel, you are probably going to eat a little something either way. So why eat a full meal beforehand? Instead, let yourself enjoy the festive foods in moderation.  
2.       Survey the scene. I am a sucker for hors d’oeuvres, because I love trying all the flavor combinations. And anything with caramelized onions or cheese on it? Well I’m all in. Heavy apps are usually stationed on a buffet line or table, so take a nonchalant walk and see what’s out there. Pick your “must haves” for when you return for a few nibbles. This will keep you from grabbing things as you see them and will instead reserve your plate space for the things you’re truly dying to try.
3.       Go easy on the sauces and dips. Especially the cream or cheese-based ones. Okay, I know this one is not as fun but it can really save you a ton of fat and calories. Get a PLATE instead of dipping into the serving bowl. Novel idea, right?
4.       Food before cocktails. Stay classy, ladies. Grab a bite to eat before the drinks get to you and you are more likely to make better choices. No one wants to watch a pretty lady in a cocktail dress go to town on the flatbreads. 
5.       Drink wisely. If you choose to drink, of course. If you like something fruity, squeeze fresh fruit yourself. Otherwise, you’re best suited to wine or a clear alcohol with a calorie-free mixer. Some people can stick it out with water, but I prefer soda water myself. If you choose diet tonic water, make sure it’s quinine free. SELF magazine did a great article  on skinny cocktails, if you’re in need of a little inspiration. I can’t wait to try the Peppermint Mojito!

Molly is putting together a super cool gift guide for my blog, Healthy & Happy Hour , so check out her foodie finds for some last-minute gift ideas! Or, let’s be real, it’s also a great way to spend your post-holiday $$$. Enjoy!

Finally the Hampster Box is in the Christmas Spirit...

I am a Christmas season fanatic... so it's kind of outrageous that I JUST put up my tree and decorations.  {My favorite song in the world, not just Christmas song, is Mariah Carey "All I Want For Christmas is You"... really, ask my friends.} This is my first REAL tree I've ever had by myself.  My parents just started getting real tree's since my oldest sister was allergic to them and the last few years I have used a fake tree.  Guess what color my ornaments are? Silver, white, and pink! Mixed in with a few glittery pink ones too... shocking huh?  Here are some pictures of the little bit of other decorating I've been doing tonight as well.  All while watching Love Actually in the background... duh!

 And the grand finale!! {Oh how I wish you could see the little owl that is my tree topper....}

Merry Christmas everyone!!! I hope you love my wonderful tree as much as I do!! I am sitting as close to it as I can just keep gazing.  I can't believe Christmas is right around the corner... if we are being honest with each other {which I think we should} I have done ZERO Christmas shopping.  Oops! Better get to it...

Love for Lauren

I am sure by now most you have heard about the horrific accident that happened last weekend to fashion editor, Dallasite, and friend Lauren Scruggs.  If you have not heard, go here to read the story. For everyone out there that is interested in helping please go to The Lauren Scruggs Hope Fund. The money raised will go to paying for her medical bills.

I have had the privilege of meeting Lauren a couple times through the Dallas blogging world and am incredibly grateful for it. Her and the other girls have been nothing but welcoming, helpful, and sweet every single time.  If you haven't seen Laurens newest venture Lolo Magazine then you should.

For those of you that will be in the Dallas area this weekend I ask you to come to Shops at Legacy in Plano, more specifically Gameday Cloth, on Saturday at 4pm.  There will be a rally and we need as many people as possible for KTXA to run the story on their 6pm news. They will tell everyone watching where to donate so this could help an enormous amount.  There will also be stores participating by donating a portion of their sales on Saturday to the fund.  We are still trying to get as many stores as possible but as of right now the stores you can shop at are; Gameday Cloth {both locations; Mockingbird Station and Shops at Legacy}, Spa Habitat, Drybar, and Ella Bleu. Most of these stores will also have a donation can on the counter so you don't even have to feel obligated to buy anything {although these are amazing places so you won't have a problem finding something}. 

If you are a store that would like to participate please email either me at or Jana at  If you are a blog that would like to do a post about this you can also email us for the full size pictures to use {or PLEASE send me a copy of the post, I would love to pass along on twitter/facebook}.  Of course feel free to contact us for general inquiries as well.

Thank you all in advance for your care and help!

Happy Friday!! :: Hoot Hoot!

Good morning everyone!!  As I mentioned yesterday I am SO ready for the weekend! Mine is packed full with; girls night out tonight, last regular season KState football game Saturday, followed by putting up my Christmas tree, followed by a fabulous Christmas party, and then watching Southern Boy run his first marathon Sunday morning! I could not be more excited for the weekends festivities and in my excitement did not get a real post ready.  However, I was flipping through the pages of the new Anthropologie catalog this morning and found this guy...

He instantly made me smile so big I had to share him with you!!! He's a cookie jar and just couldn't be any cuter if he tried... I hope he has the same effect on your day that he did on mine!

Don't forget tomorrow my gift guide will be on Modern-Eve for the 12 Days of Christmas!! {Don't worry... I will remind you :)}.  Until then... have a WONDERFUL day!

Beauty Obsession :: Chanel

I went with my sister the other day to Neiman Marcus to get some shoes for a big Christmas party this Saturday night.  After we found the perfect nude heel for her gold sequin dress we headed to the makeup counters.  She basically gave the lady at the Chanel counter free reign since she has not really bought real makeup for while.  So she started from the beginning.  Everything went well but once my sister told her the dress was gold she used something that finally, with it's tiny little stroke made such a big difference!

She swiped this magic gold eyeliner just on the inside corners of the eyes and it instantly brightened her eyes and made them look just a bit more dramatic. She literally got the last one of these at Neiman Marcus in Northpark so if you're a Dallasite try somewhere else, maybe downtown or just buy online to avoid the stress of running all over town to find it. still has some! If $32 was in my budget for a gold eyeliner I would have already bought it! I will just have to borrow hers for the party Saturday night instead.

Is anyone else as excited for the weekend as I am?!
