TCW MAGAZINE STYLING

Over the past few months I've had the opportunity to assist Jessica Moazami, fashion stylist and blogger behind Addictions of a Fashion Junkie, for a few photoshoots for TCW Magazine. It's been pretty exciting for me to witness firsthand the work that goes into these photoshoots, and to watch each individual look come together. Styling is definitely something I want to get into more, so I've loved learning from Jessica. Plus, I could steam pieces like these all day.

Check out the shoots that I got to help style below!

THESE BOOTS WERE MADE FOR FALL

Before you yell at me for posting about fall when we're all trying to hold on to August for dear life, I want you to recall all of the good things this next season brings. My birthday, pumpkin everything, and the happiest your feet will ever be - boots! I love to dress up an outfit with a pair of boots, and they're my go-to shoes to be worn with a sweater dress.

So pull out your most comfy socks (and your credit card) because I've put together a list of boots that'll make you excited for the colder weather.

Topshop Magnum Heeled Boots ($130)

Topshop Bizz Open Back Boots ($65)

Rag & Bone Harrow Leather Biker Boots ($550) Net-A-Porter

Steve Madden Harverd ($229.95)

Steve Madden Skippur ($169.95)

See? The end of summer isn't all bad.

EIGHT CELEBRITIES SERVING EYEBROW INSPIRATION

It's no secret that I have a love affair with eyebrows. They can make or break a person's facial structure, and can completely change the way someone looks.

To brighten up this Monday, I've put together a list of eight celebrities with noteworthy brows that set the standard high.

FAVORITO FRIDAY: NAMRATA JOSHIPURA TURBANS

The windy city - perfect for picturesque views, but not so perfect for picturesque hair. Having an already knotty mane, you can imagine what the wind can do to my long tresses. That's why I'm always on the hunt for hats, headbands, and my current obsession, turbans. I came across these from Namrata Joshipura on Shopbop and fell in love with the interesting detail and bright colors. They're the perfect pick-me-up to my usual all black ensemble.

Have you rocked a turban headband before?

#NEWCARFACE CONTEST WITH CARS.COM

Sponsored by cars.com

Car shopping is the only kind of shopping I don't like. Although I've done it once in my life and gave up my car when I moved to the city, I still recall how not fun the process was. I remember feeling extremely adult-like, making my first big girl purchase, but that feeling was quickly shot down when I realized I needed to drive sitting on a pillow... that totally boosted my ego.

Many of us rely on our car every day to get around. Whether public transportation isn't available, walking is a legit hike, or taxis don't come down your block often, it's the most popular means of transportation. There are many days (especially in the winter months) when I miss hoping into my temperature controlled vehicle and getting to my destination quickly. But hello, do you know how many pairs of shoes I can get for the price of a car?

That's where cars.com comes in. Not only do they make car shopping much more fun, but they're about to make someone's life even better! Currently they're holding a new car promotion where they'll be paying off one lucky winner's car loan payment, up to $25,000. And entering is so simple!

Take it from me and Titan, dogs don't make for good transportation. I mean, do you see that face? How are we supposed to keep up in this traffic?


Here's how you can win! Simply upload a photo of you and your car on Twitter (tagging @carsdotcom), Facebook (posting on cars.com's page), or Instagram (tagging/mentioning @carsdotcom) showing off your best #newcarface and using the hashtag. And don't forget to get creative!

You can only submit one entry for this new car contest, so be sure it's a good one. It's open to legal US residents, 18+ (excluding MD, NJ, and TN... sorry guys!) who have a vehicle loan or lease - or who has an immediate family member with one. The contest ends January 2, 2015 at 12:00 PM CST, so you have some time to get your creative juices flowing. You can read more rules and regulations, and see examples of #newcarface entries, here.

See how happy my #newcarface (and Titan's!) is when we don't have to depend on each other to get around?


You bet we'll be tracking the hashtag to see what you come up with.

Good luck!

JILL'S NY/NJ TRIP VIA INSTAGRAM

This past weekend, I took a quick trip to the East Coast to check out some wedding venues and celebrate my cousin's wedding. From my quick time in Manhattan, to my mandatory visit to my hometown of Brooklyn, and ending things in the cutest little town in New Jersey, it was an eventful few days. I had a ton of fun and managed to snap some Instagram pics along the way, which I had to share!

Heading into Brooklyn!

Nothing compares.

MOVIE ANTICIPATION

For me, there is nothing better than going to see a good movie. No matter how much I enjoy hanging out in my pajamas on my couch with a glass of wine, nothing compares to the experience of seeing a flick in the theatre. That's why I'm sharing five movies I can not wait to see!

And no, Fifty Shades of Grey is not on this list.

Fury



Boyhood



The Theory of Everything



Mockingjay



Foxcatcher



What movies are you excited to see?

FAVORITO FRIDAY: TIFFANY & CO. PALOMA'S SUGAR STACKS RINGS

I find myself looking at jewelry websites on the search for the perfect companion to my engagement ring, but I sometimes get a bit distracted and just end up looking at other pretty things. That's where the Paloma's Sugar Stacks rings from Tiffany & Co. come in!

This ring is made for every girl, since there's so many different combinations of gold, white gold, and rose gold with clusters of either diamonds, pink and blue sapphires, or black spinels. My obvious favorite is the ones with black spinels, of course! And since it comes in two different sizes, it's perfect for either a statement ring or one to wear every single day.

Rose Gold with Pavé Black Spinels ($3,600.00)
White Gold with Pavé Sapphires ($2,100.00)
Rose Gold with Pavé Pink Sapphires ($4,500.00)

White Gold with Pavé Diamonds ($2,500.00)

What do you love from Tiffany & Co.?

Time to decide between the candidates for the freshest sneakers on the block!
