Happy Monday! I am so emotional and excited over the Packers win over Cowboys last night, I don’t think I know how to contain myself. I bet you never thought you’d see me talking about football on the blog, did you? Well Wisconsin is working it’s magic on me! I love living here, I love all the friends I’ve made. But one of the things I love the most is Lake Michigan. That’s why I am always shooting outfits by it. Today is no exception. By the way, can you guess what my favorite color is? Enjoy and don’t forget to link up yours below!

The Perfect Holiday Dress // Monday Mode Link Up + It Cosmetics Giveaway

Happy Monday! Here is to another week! My week has a very snowy start. I spent all day Sunday baking a cake to bring into work, and watching Shameless! Obsessed with that show. I don’t know how I didn’t start watching it sooner!

Today’s dress is the perfect holiday dress in my opinion. It’s flattering, unique and has those little details that allow to wear it without any accessories. For the past couple of months I’ve been avoiding wearing any sort of jewelry. I don’t know what it is, probably just a stage ๐Ÿ™‚ haha My dress is by LATTORI, and the booties are Kenneth Cole Reaction I got on Hautelook a few years ago. ย I’ve selected some similar products for you to check out below:


As promised, we have another holiday giveaway for you! This one is even better than the last! I’ve been obsessed with It Cosmetics for about a year now, and I wanted to share the hype with you today! It Cosmetics has recently become available at Ulta, and you can enter to win a set of 5 brushes, and two ornaments that include Confidence in a Cream and Super Hero mascara! Good luck!

Mock Neck Turtleneck + Monday Mode Link Up

It was such a gorgeous weekend here in Milwaukee, not even the presidential debate could ruin it. I’ve been listening to Regina Spektor’s new album “Remember Us To Life” on my way to and from work lately and her song “The Light” has really been speaking to me. I wanted to share it with you today, and remind you that sometimes we just need to keep trying, keep going and be that light that shines on us. Of course there are days when I am more of a Grand Hotel personage, but remembering that light helps me get through the day ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve been obsessed with Kohl’s “Own your everyday runway” fall campaign, and I have to admit I own quiet a few pieces from that whole line up, including this Elle mock neck sleeveless turtleneck. It’s the softest coziest fall item in my closet at the moment, and did I mention I have it in 2 colors.


I wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who’s been linking up with us every Monday for Monday Mode Link Up! It means the world to us! Your posts inspire me and help me stay on top of blogging.

Like I mentioned last week, Rachel, Jewel and I will now be picking our favorite posts from last week. These are the two looks that stood out to us the most:

Outfit: Black and white x 2! Stripes are always a good idea no matter what season or place. I wore this oversized top with faux leather pleated skirtย and platform sandals. Accidental twinning with Kaitlyn made this look even more memorable ๐Ÿ˜‰

Life: Getting used to Milwaukee more and more each day, discovering new places and parks. Absolutely loved Atwater beach, where these photos were taken. Sam and I stopped by the Milwaukee Art Museum today to see American Epics exhibit, wandered through the gift shop, took the long way home along the lake front.

Last week I tried Zumba for the first time, gym is definitely becoming one of my favorite places to go to. Are you as surprised as I am? I have also ordered my very first juice cleanse (Jus by Julie) over the weekend. I won’t start it till August 30, and it’s only a 3 day one, but I will definitely share my experience with you once it’s over.

Listen: Here are top five songs that are on my Spotify playlist this month:

MIA

My dear readers, I’m at a funeral in Wisconsin today, and that’s why there is no regular BeingZhenya post! Knowing me though – there will be one tomorrow, I’ll write it tonight before I go to bed! There is just so much I need to tell you, but for right now – here is a mind blowing question – Why would someone need 9 razors in their shower?

I’ll talk to you all soon!
Xo,
