OMNIVOGUES

| RAQUEL RINGGOLD |

You know when you haven't seen someone in a bit and they just drop a bunch of news on you. Good, because that's pretty much the situation at hand. If you are following me @raquelringgold which I hope you are, I am sure you saw that I was recently crowned International Junior Miss New York Teen 2018. I have a crazy journey ahead of me this upcoming year, but I wanna save all that talk for an upcoming YouTube video.

Also, while on the subject of YouTube, I am doing VLOGMAS. Yaaaaay. Make sure you subscribe to my channel to see all of my videos leading up to Christmas, and I will of course still be making consistent content following. I finally got the whole editing thing down and I think it's gonna be a great extension of OMNIVOGUES. 

The sweater weather mood is real and I am all about cozy vibes at the moment. It is finals week and then voila, it will officially be the finale of my first semester of college. That was ridiculously quick. Back to this SheIn coffee sweater, I absolutely love wearing one heavy piece that is warm enough to then just throw a jacket on over it. We had a little bit of snow the other day in NYC and sweaters like this are absolutely wonderful because they are casual enough to lounge in, but presentable enough for the real world in case I decide to stop hibernating.

I went pretty hard on Black Friday, so here are some of the best deals I found. Enjoy watching and make sure to subscribe!

fitzcarraldo (n.) an image that somehow becomes lodged deep in your brain—maybe washed there by a dream, or smuggled inside a book, or planted during a casual conversation—which then grows into a wild and impractical vision that keeps scrambling back and forth in your head like a dog stuck in a car that’s about to arrive home, just itching for a chance to leap headlong into reality.
TGIF, amen, we did it. If you didn't check out my last YouTube video where I collabed with KKW Beauty, make sure you do. The highlighters will have you glowing like the star on top of a Christmas tree. That last line may or may not have been strongly influenced by my holiday music Spotify playlist that I have been blasting since the first day of November.

I'm at that point in college where Thanksgiving break is creeping up which means a bunch of deadlines are about to hit me like a brick. Don't fear though, luckily I've been meticulously planning and as long as procrastination doesn't hit in the next week I'll be just fine. I've got my eyes on the prize...Black Friday.

Cold-shoulder and off-shoulder pieces have to be one of my favorite trends of 2016. I love this oxford-esque top that reminds me of my school uniform days, but in more of a Serena van der Woodsen chic way. I paired it with these ripped jeans because if fabric is missing from the top, why not rip the jeans too. I am obsessed with the bold color of these pumps, and it fit in perfectly with the hues of blue. 

Have a beautiful weekend!

Top: Haute Monde // Jeans: Kan Can // Pumps: Rogue




As promised, here I am with another video, finally! I'm totally, completely, 100% shook that I am typing this, but I am so excited to have collabed with KKW Beauty to do this review. Yes, THE KKW BEAUTY, as in THE Kim Kardashian West's line. I did a first impressions video on their Powder Contour & Highlight Kit, so watch to see if I think it is worth the cost, how it works on my skin, and more.
