With the temperatures falling each week and people (unnecessarily) putting up their Christmas decorations, I realize that perhaps a neon printed tank dress is not the most appropriate garb.  I've relented and finally given in to the fact that it's fall/winter.  I've started wearing tights and jackets.  I hold off on this as long as possible.  I hate wearing tights.  It's pretty much double laundry.  And on top of that I have to cover up all my fab outfits with a coat.  These are just some of the reasons I hate winter.  There are so many more...

Look What I Got: NuMe Curl Jam Set Review and $25 Visa Gift Card Giveaway!

Today LWIG has a special co-host!  The Closet by Christie!  
And she's bringing you a fab hair tool review AND $25 Visa gift card giveaway!

Loose curls are THE thing when it comes to hair trends right now. But how do you get that perfect curl? Believe me, I have been trying for months! After watching YouTube tutorial after tutorial, interviewing my friends, and trying just about every product under the sun, I think I finally got it! It takes a little practice, the right flick of the wrist, and... dun, dun, dun- the right product! 

How did I get the curl look I wanted? I bought the 3 in 1 curling wand by NuMe Products! And seriously, I am in love. But hey, isn't that expensive? Well, yes but with the help of influencers, top bloggers, and websites like Groupon- we can get awesome deals!


After watching this video by Ingrid Nilsen- better known on YouTube as missglamorazzi- I not only learned a thing or two, but I couldn't believe my ears when she announced the offer you could get just because she referred you. Ingrid has two coupon codes; one for 50% off plus free shipping and the other for the entire curl jam set for just $84 (value: $280). Wow! If you haven't checked out Ingrid's YouTube channel, I recommend you do because she is super cute and she knows a lot about everything when it comes to fashion, beauty, and lifestyle. 

Here are Ingrid's codes:

$84 for Curl Jam
Use Code: GetGlamWithIt

50% Off NuMe + Free Shipping to US, Canada, UK
Use Code: Nugified

Additionally, I found a Groupon for NuMe products! You can spend $18 to get a $70 Groupon or $30 to get a $120 Groupon. Not bad! Get your Groupons here: NuME Product Groupon.

The above picture shows the Curl Jam Set. It comes with a straightener, a 3 in 1 curling wand, and an awesome travel case. I got all this for just $84 ($96 with shipping)! I haven't used the straightener yet, but the wand is absolutely fantastic. I'm in love! Plus, the travel case is really cool. It has a pocket for each piece and it rolls up into a pretty tiny sphere. Even if you don't travel much, it's great for storage.

*Neither Closet by Christie nor Penniless Socialite was not paid or asked to promote NuMe Products or Ingrid Nilsen. Christie literally just could not resist sharing the love!

Jogger Pants and a Blanket Scarf

Look at me being all trendy with my jogger pants AND blanket scarf.  I really love trends that are pretty much pajamas...with a blanket on the side.  These pants are the softest, comfiest pants in my wardrobe currently.  I'm ready for a night on the town in this outfit OR a night on the couch.  Well, I didn't do either.  I took these babies out to the bar to watch some football. 
I was really hesitant to try the jogger pant trend.  I was really confused about how to style them so that they didn't just look like a pair of sweatpants.  Most bloggers throw on a pair of sky high heels to lengthen the leg, but I like to leave heels at the office and out of my weekend.  Plus, I didn't think heels were appropriate at a bar that primarily serves beer and fried things. I was also a little worried about the size of my backside and how short I am.  I was wrong.  With the right pants, I think this trend can look good on any body type.  I think it's all about styling and shape.  I loved how these had a tapered leg, a wide waistband, and a contrasting color/texture band on the front.  I think all of these things contributed to their awesomeness.

Look What I Got: Fall / Winter Wishlist!

This time a year when it starts getting cold and I start dreading poking a bare foot outside of the comforter in the morning, I also start to crazy cozy things...like sweaters and hats..and apparently velvet loafers.  So here are the winter-y items I am craving lately.
Fall / Winter 14 wishlist
