Over the past month I’ve amassed quite a collection of fabulous fall boots, but so far these Bucco Odelia Wedge Sneakers are the crown jewel. I scored these for $38 (reg. $64) on Hautelook and was delighted to find they are even lovelier in person than I could have ever imagined.
A three-inch wedge heel, stud detailing and adjustable straps make these easily the coolest looking pair of shoes I own. And don’t even get me started on the compliments. I wore them for the first time today and got tons of questions from girls wanting to know where they could find a pair of their own.
Because the straps are adjustable, these are the perfect boots for people like me who have wider feet and therefore can’t wear narrow shoes. I also love how the fabric has a distressed leather feel, making them an edgy way to step into Autumn.
I la-la-looooove the way these look from behind! I really hate when I buy shoes with some kind of adornment (studs, rhinestones etc…) and they only go around the front leaving the back looking plain and boring. These are fabulous from all angles – just like me! (haha!)
I should probably also mention the most important detail – and that is how comfortable these are. The insoles are well-cushioned and offer a decent amount of arch support, making them easy to walk in. I wore them for over 9 hours today and my feet didn’t hurt one bit. They’re so amazing I hope Hautelook features them again so I can get them in other colors ♥
It’s almost time for fall, which means stores are stocking up on yummy harvest scents like pumpkin, cinnamon and apples. Naturally because I love fall so much I like to wear the scents as well as keep them in my home so everything smells like one big autumn explosion, so I’ve been indulging in everything from bath and body stuffs to candles. Here’s my first round of fall goodies, but believe me, this is just the tip of the iceberg!
Since I’ve gotten this question on the video already, here’s what I’m wearing on my lips: Prestige lipliner – Cameo, NARS lipstick – Sexual Healing, Bath & Body Works Liplicious Diamond Lipgloss – Twinkling Sugar. As for my eyes, I’m wearing the following colors from the Too Faced Natural at Night Palette: Night Light (lid), Cocoa Star (crease) and Spotlight (highlight).
And now for the products mentioned in the video in case you’re as obsessed with fall like me and wanna try them out =)

The moment I saw these drop dead gorgeous Italian wedges on Hauetlook, I knew they had to be mine. I’ve been trying to limit my shoe spending lately, but it’s not every day I find jewel encrusted Bucco Cara peeptoe wedges so I figured I would dip into the piggy bank for these.
I know these look really high – and they are – but you know I wouldn’t have it any other way. The heel measures 6 inches which sounds uncomfortable, but the 2 inch platform makes these surprisingly easy to walk in. I also love how the gold painted wedge looks a little distressed.
I la-la-loooove the way the big jewels look against the canvas. It dresses down the shoes just enough that you can wear them every day with jeans and not look mismatched. I wore them last week with dark denim and a black lacey top and the look was glam but not over the top.
The best part is I got them for just $20 – more than $60 off the original price! And people wonder why I’m so obsessed with Hautelook.
I’m about to make a very bold statement, so brace yourselves. Ready? Ok, here goes: this is my new favorite gel liner. Ya, I said it.
This came in the mail yesterday along with a few other goodies I got from the Pixi/POP beauty sale on Hautelook and to be honest I wasn’t expecting to like it this much since it was kind of an impulse buy. Regularly priced at $18.00, these were going for $4.50 so I picked up two thinking it would make a nice base for my black smokey eye if nothing else. Then I tried it out this morning and was pretty much blown away by the sheer awesomeness of this product.
I was initially impressed by the gel’s intense color pay-off and rich, velvety texture. It glides across the eyelids easily and the color is vibrant with just one sweep. Even more impressive is the staying power. I did my makeup at 7:30am – it’s now 12:06am and my eyeliner is right where I put it this morning. I’m pretty shocked considering it’s allergy season and my eyes were watering pretty much all day.
Though I prefer using my Sonia Kashuk angled brush for gel liner application, the little brush included in the brush is actually not bad. As you can see above, it’s flat shape makes it easy to do a fine line or a thick one.
Now that I’m completely in love with this stuff, I can’t wait for it to be back on Hautelook so I can stock up again. Thank the good lawd I was smart enough to buy two this time!
Final Verdict: LOVE IT

Nothing brightens up an otherwise drab day quite like a few packages from my favorite place to shop online. I ordered these items over the past few weeks, but they all showed up on the same day which in a way felt like my own little mini-Christmas. Except it’s hot out, I’m sweating bullets and I had to buy my own gifts. Not quite as magical as the holidays, but still pretty awesome. For me, pretty much any day I get new bling is a great day!
I hit up the Crown Brush sale and picked up the special edition pink brush set as well as a crease brush since those are practical things I need for my tutorials. The sparkly pink ring and blinged out tape measure/flashlight set came from the Bling Event sale and and are also practical – at least that’s how I justified it to myself and my debit card lol.
I got the Crown Brush Special Edition 12-peice Brush Set for $25, and I’m really satisfied with the overall look and quality of these brushes. Not to mention they’re super cute!
This Deluxe Pointed Crease Brush, also from Crown Brush, was a steal at just $4.00. I’ve been looking for something fluffy that was a little more tapered at the end and this fits the bill perfectly.
The moment I saw this pink cocktail ring with Swarovski elements on the Bling Event I knew I had to have it. I paid $18.95 for this and the sparkle this thing generates in the sun makes it worth every penny. Plus, it matches my nails =)
You’re probably thinking to yourself, “Jackie, what the hell do you need a bedazzled tape measure for?” My question is, why WOULDN’T I need a bedazzled tape measure? I like to measure stuff just as much as the next guy, so I may as well do it in style.
And with that my beloved readers, I bid you goodnight. Gotta get up early to make that money. The bling won’t buy itself!
