    Today’s Sunday Chat is extra special because it’s my official one month anniversary since launching The Pretty Little Hustler! Time seriously flew, and although I’ve only been blogging for a month, I really feel like I’ve learned so much in such a short amount of time. Obviously I still have a ton to learn about the blogging world and the ins and outs of running a successful blog, but I think I’m off to a solid start and I have y’all to thank for that. Seriously, you made my launch day so incredibly exciting and I’m over the moon that I actually have consistent readers on my posts! I can’t lie though, there have also been some lows among all the highs in this last month, and today I want to go through some of the major takeaways I have. Newbie bloggers or aspiring bloggers, this one’s for you! Read more


    Five Favorites: Fall Candles

    Anyone who knows me will tell you how much I love candles. It’s actually a bit of a running joke in my family about how many candles I have, hah! I can’t help it; I just love how cozy they instantly make a room and obviously all the good smells (smells are very important to me). My favorites, hands down, are from Bath and Body Works (and no I’m not being sponsored or influenced in any way to say this!) and I know that some people don’t get the hype or think they’re overpriced, but I love them. I’d also be lying if I said their gorgeous packaging didn’t also draw me in, hah! Well since last week I broke down my five favorite fall lipsticks (wow that’s a mouthful!), I thought it would be fun to make it into a series and share my five favorite fall candles! Let me know if you like this series so far and what other categories I should cover. Now let’s get into the post…I’m breaking down my five fave candles, how Bath and Body Works describes their scent, and my actual review of each. Enjoy! Read more


    New Fave Combo: Fall Dresses & OTK Boots

    fall dress, OTK boots, over the knee, fall boots, fall style, fall clothes, fall fashion, nyc blogger,

    Wow, it feels like forever since I was last here! Apologies for the lack of a Sunday Chat post over the weekend (it was one of those, “I just need to relax” kind of Sundays). Any who, today I am back with one of my favorite new outfits for fall. You probably remember these OTK boots from this post a couple of weeks ago and I was so excited to finally take them out for a spin over the weekend. I think it’s officially safe to say that over the knee boots with a cute fall dress may become my official fall uniform, ha!  Read more


    Five Favorites: Fall Lipstick

    So over the last year or two I got really, really into makeup. Something about the convenience of being able to buy it online really hooked me in and I found myself casually browsing my favorite brand’s websites at least once a week, ha! Naturally, I’ve acquired quite a bit of lipstick over the last couple years and today I want to share my five favorite lippies for fall! These are the colors I’ve been reaching for over the last couple weeks and that I can totally see myself wearing for the rest of the season with basically every outfit.

    Oversize Sweaters & Leather Mules

    mules, loafers, leather, fall shoes, oversize sweater, black knit, sweater, ripped jeans, denim, american eagle, ivanka trump, forever 21

    Today we are keeping it short & sweet. I gave you guys a bit of heavy reading in my last couple of posts (here and here) so I figured today we can just take it easy. Sound good? And what better way to take it easy than in my favorite, oversize knit sweater? Seriously y’all, I love this thing. It’s been my go-to for those mildly chilly days and nights and it’s the perfect casual, slouchy fit. Also a major fan of the open back detail so I can show off my favorite bralettes, but you’ll have to stick around to see that 😉 Read more
