Sequinned Bomber

Saturday, December 3, 2016







bomber:Zara   jeans:Free People   shoes:Indigo Rd.

This bomber is my new obsessed and I am determined to find an excuse to wear it more! It's the perfect holiday and New Years piece if you don't want to go for a full-on sequin dress. I will be in Mexico for New Years this year and it will be too warn for me too wear, but if you need a cute, sparkly jacket,  I totally recommend it! 
I'm not sure if it comes through in the photos, but the jacket texture is faux fur with sequins coming through-OBSESSED.  This is definitely a statement piece, and I am in love with it! 
I chose to pair it with a simple, all black outfit, and my favorite black booties(which are currently on sale!), but you can also dress this jacket down even more with a white tee and boyfriend jeans! 

I hope you all have a great weekend!

Oversized Sweater + Flares

Thursday, December 1, 2016







hat:Free People (similar) sweater:Free People(old style) flares:Target  bag:Free People  shoes:Vince Camuto

This outfit is something that I would wear everyday if I could! Boho style is definitely my favorite, and if I could pick one style to rock for the rest of my life, that would definitely be it! I found these flares at Target recently and they are such a good length! I always have trouble with flares being way too long and then when I hem them, the flare pretty much disappears! These fit perfectly and were only $24-total steal! I know they are still available online, if you can't find them in your store!

November Beauty Favorites

Tuesday, November 29, 2016


I can't believe it's already the end of November! The holidays are officially here, people! I honestly didn't try out too many new beauty products this month, but I did discover some old favorites! I want to know your beauty favorites!! Leave a comment for me and let's talk beauty! 

I talked about the Pierre's hydrating mask a few months ago, and I have added this one to the collection! I love that its natural, and that it doesn't get super dry on your skin. Just like my other Pierre's mask, this one leaves my skin feeling amazing and refreshed! I definitely recommend! 
I originally bought this bronzer to use for my halloween makeup but it ended up being the perfect color for my everyday makeup!  I am usually pretty tan because I work out on the water all day in the sun, but I protect my face with a hat and big sunglasses, so when I do my makeup I need to use a bronzer to match my face to my body. This bronzer is awesome and only like $8!
Mineral Fusion sent me their glosses a few months ago, and I recently rediscovered them! I have been using the color Clarity almost everyday that I actually wear makeup and it's the perfect natural shade. I can't stand lip glosses that are super sticky, and these are nice and smooth! 
I got this Bite Beauty lipstick duo at Sephora a while back, and the dark shade is perfect for the fall! Bite lipsticks have the best formula and they stay on for so long! I definitely recommend these duos! Sephora always has them around the holidays! 
I have loved all of the Loreal shampoo and conditioners that I have tried, but this is my most recent favorite! It seriously leaves my hair so silly and smooth and smelling amazing! It definitely gives my hair the feeling of a high end product, but it costs around $4 a bottle!

Joggers + Slides

Saturday, November 26, 2016






cardigan:Forever21  shirt:Michael Stars  joggers:Michael Stars  slides:similar

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, and are recovering from all of that turkey and mashed potatoes! I started decorating my apartment this weekend for Christmas, so I am getting pretty excited for the holidays! 
This outfit was a bit of a risk for me. When I first saw that this style of shoe was getting popular I thought they were totally weird and not cute at all, but then I started scrolling Pinterest and realized- wait these are actually amazing. You don't even have to bend over to put your shoes on- which is perfect for that post-turkey feeling(lol). I paired them with my favorite joggers from Michael Stars and my new favorite cardigan from Forever21, to give it a more polished look! This cardigan is seriously such amazing quality and so soft! I definitely recommend it if you are looking for a good go-to cardigan to just throw on and head out the door! I'm all about comfort, and this is definitely a look I can wear all day long and be super comfy! 
What do you guys think of this style of shoes? Leave me a comment! 

I hope you all have a great rest of your weekend!

Happy Thanksgiving + Last Minute Gluten-Free Cookies

Thursday, November 24, 2016


Happy Thanksgiving! 
I wanted to share a last-minute cookie recipe that is perfect to add to your Thanksgiving dinner table! I eat a gluten-free diet and I try to eat as healthy as possible, so this recipe has minimal oil, and contains mainly natural ingredients. This recipe is one that I have modified from several trial and errors, and I am obsessed! It's a one bowl recipe and takes about 30 minutes total! 

Ingredients:
1 Egg
6 Tbsp All-Natural Peanut Butter
1 Cup Homemade Oat Flour
*Some people who can't eat gluten do not eat oats, but oats do not bother me, so I made a homemade oat flour by putting oats in the blender and grinding them up.* You can also use almond flour!*
1 Tsp Baking Soda
1/4 Cup Coconut Flour
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 Tsp Salt
Chocolate Chips (I also added butter scotch to mine!)
1 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
2 Tbsp Sunflower Oil
1/3 Cup Coconut Milk

Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. 

I hope you all have a great day! I am so thankful for all of you who support my blog!

Fall/Winter Accessories +Gift Guide

Monday, November 21, 2016


Happy Monday! I feel like the weeks are flying by! The holidays are here and I thought I would start putting together a few gift guides for you all! These are some of my favorite accessories that I think would make great gifts for the accessory lovers in your life!

Free People Matador Hat
This is the best fall hat, in my opinion! It is the perfect boho hat to add an extra piece to your outfit and it comes in tons of colors. I have a hard time finding hats to fit my giant head ( lol ) but this one fits perfectly! So, if you need a holiday gift for a boho gal in your life, definitely check out
 this one! 
This is another awesome hat for fall/winter! Denim is super popular right now, and the Urban Outfitters Babe collection is so adorable! Living by the beach, I always try to be very careful about sun exposure, so hats like this are a must! This one is cute enough to wear hiking or to the beach, but you can also throw it on with a trendy outfit like sneakers, joggers, and a tee! This is a great gift to give this season (plus it is currently on sale!) 

I wear my personalized, mermaid necklace everyday, and it is my absolute favorite! I love getting my jewelry from Etsy, and I have had this specific necklace for about a year now, and it is still in perfect condition. I would definitely check out JZCollection on Etsy if you are looking for a personalized gift for a friend or loved one! 

When these puff balls first started becoming trendy a while ago I thought they were absolutely ridiculous, but after seeing how some higher-end brands styled them, I decided they were actually pretty cute! Now I own several, and I love adding them to my bag for a little pop of color to my outfit! These make adorable stocking stuffers or little gifts for friends this holiday season! 

Every gal needs a good statement bag! I recently got this cool denim bag from Shop J&G, and I think it is a really great alternative to some of the designer denim bags that are out there right now! Chanel and Michael Kors make beautiful denim bags, but if you are looking for a bag under $50, I would definitely check out Shop J&G! Use the code CORINNE10 for 10% off your order! 

I scored this clutch about a month ago on sale at Anthropologie, and I think it is the perfect clutch to wear with cozy sweaters this time of year! Textured bags are so fun to add to your outfit if it needs a little something extra, and this one caught my eye immediately! Large clutches, like this one, are great, versatile gifts because they can be used as ipad cases, travel pouches, or going out bags!

Floral Dress

Friday, November 18, 2016







hat:Free People   dress:Forever21   shoes:Indigo Rd.

Happy Friday! I found this dress at Forever21 a few months ago and I was so impressed! Sometimes  Forever21 really surprises me, and this was definitely a great find! Because this dress has accents of black it is the perfect dress to transition into the winter season. It's a great length to wear with over the knee boots, or tights and ankle boots, so I can't wait to style this dress again for the winter time! For now, because it has still been so warm here at the beach, I went for a more boho look with my new favorite ankle booties from Ingido Rd. I am so obsessed with these! 

I have been working hard all week to prepare for an event this weekend! I will be selling my sweatshirts and wall hangings from my Etsy store, The Cozy Mermaid, at a craft fair this Saturday! If you live in the Oxnard/Ventura area and want some more information, check out  @thecozymermaidco on Instagram! 

Have a great weekend!
