Tomorrow I embark on a journey of a lifetime to Madrid, Spain. I will be studying art, spanish and photojournalism for the whole summer! I am also lucky enough to visit my friend Laura en Barcelona after my program is over! Check out her blog here about travel rocavenen.blogspot.com.
Follow my blog here as I try to keep it as updated as possible about my endeavors abroad!
Unfortunately, I have been neglecting my blog for the past few months due to being extremely busy with school, work, etcetera. However, I am very excited to announce that I will be studying for the summer in Madrid, Spain. I will be taking classes in art history, photo journalism, and of course Spanish!
I am hoping that this trip revives my love of blogging and I can share some of my experiences with all of you here. I just purchased a great new digital camera (Canon Rebel T5i) that I plan to take with me so I can properly blog fashion, food, site seeing and much more!
I leave in a little less than a month so stay updated for photos and fun!
So I have been neglecting Alyknowsbest.com for the past few months now and today I decided it was PAST TIME to get back into the blogging game. When I am not blogging I am frequently instagramming all kinds of photos. Follow me @aly_nagel
Lately, I’ve been completely obsessed with booties that have special details like buckles and hardware. Here are some of my favorites above. Which one’s your fav??
This evening I have the opportunity to attend the Holiday Shop Hop hosted my my friend and mentor Damsel in Dior (who I intern for) at The Grove in LA. It should be a festive evening filled with friends, drinks, and of course shopping!
Be looking for a post tomorrow, I will have pics up on the blog (and possibly some of my purchases!)
Last year, bright and bold colors and patterns began popping up in the bottom half of outfits. Now these stem statement making pieces can be seen in nearly every store around. Above, I shared my secrets to finding the perfect pair (or two) on a budget but still splurging with style. These babies look fab paired with a t-shirt, blazer and cutie booties!
Since Halloween has passed and we are now well into the month of November, the Holidays are rapidly approaching, and you know what that means? FOOD, WEIGHT GAIN, FAMILY AND PRESENTS!
To help Santa out, I have already started to put together some gift ideas for me this year (I know SO generous). My Pinterest board called Santa, I’ve been a really good girl… has some really great gift finds plus maybe some early gift ideas for you and your loved ones.
BRING ON THE HOLIDAYS!
PS: That photo above (on the right) is really me as a child!
In the world of women’s shoes, there is one king that reigns over every other brand. That king is Jeffrey Campbell. His designs may seem funky and outrageous, but really can be rocked by any daring gal out there. Above are some of my favorite pics. The pair I am DYING to purchase are the pair in the top left corner, the Rum Moto Boot $175 (exclusive to Nasty Gal). I think they’ll be putting a dent in next weeks paycheck. Just wish I could try them on first though!
This year, I am especially excited for Halloween because I have a BANGIN’ costume and several fun events I’ll be sporting it at. This Halloween, American Apparel has put together an AMAZING campaign of costume ideas which have inspired me to go tight and short this year. Above are some of my pics for the costume I am creating. I’m going to be a GROOVY DISCO DIVA and couldn’t be more excited! Next Saturday, I’ll be wearing the costume to the costume party at my work which should be a TON of fun. Then, on Halloween night, I’ll be attending the fab parade in West Hollywood with the other thousands of Halloween lovers. Expect pictures to come!!!
Hello everyone, I apologize for being so absent on posting lately. I have been EXTREMELY busy. It’s really getting out of control. Another thing that is out of control, is the amount of Fall shopping I want to do/have done/still need to do. I am OBSESSED with everything I’m seeing in stores right now. This GORG MK Burgundy tote caught my eye at Nordys the other day and I’m pretty sure I am completely and totally in love with an inanimate object…. anyways it also comes in this tan color that is equally GORG. Only prob is it will put you about $500 buck a roos in the hole. Take a look at this little beauty here MK Tristan Tote. Why do I have such an expensive taste? I blame my mother.

On Monday I turned the big “20″ and it was a great day! I spent it with my family mostly which was something very different for me. I was treated to a special lunch and dinner and got to spend some time with my grandma (whom I don’t see much). This birthday reminded me of how little time you really do have with your loved ones, and to cherish every minute you can spend with them. Please excuse the crappy quality of my phone pics, but I think these give you the gist! Let’s ring in a new decade!
