Scarves & Cardis

On one of my trips to H&M with my Christmas gift cards, I purchased some cardigans and a scarf. Well, now I definitely wish I bought more than one scarf. I fell in love with it. I don’t know if it is because I live in Florida that I am just catching onto this trend, or what. We’ve had a few cold fronts lately that I most certainly have not been prepared for. It has been in the 40s and a little over a week ago it got down to the 30s.

I love this floral one because it has a few colors to match with it. It was only about $7 at H&M. I definitely plan on purchasing a few more. I’m thinking some bright colors and maybe a funky print and a basic one.
With my winter wardrobe lacking, I don’t have too many winter boots. These are a great pair of brown leather Steve Maddens that are cute and surprisingly comfy. The grey cardigan is from H&M, as well as the jeans.

I actually turned this scarf into an infinity to make it easier to wrap around and stay. I tied both ends in a knot and wrapped it up. I got the idea from this amazing video that has 25 ways to tie a scarf…who knew!

Do you guys have a favorite scarf?

The Holidays & 2012

Hello everyone! I am here, I am here! I have been slacking on my blog posting lately, which is no good! I started some new jobs and with that and family in town things have been crazy lately. Oh, and I got into minor a car accident (the day before Christmas Eve) and have had to deal with the stubborn insurance companies and finding transportation. Luckily I was not at fault, but boy has it been a hassle. Since I have been absent through the holidays, I’ll give a little update on what I received from my awesome family and boyfriend.

I received a year gym membership from my mother, which I am so happy about! I can now have my boyfriend be my personal trainer, feel healthy and get back into shape again! Rob got me a beautiful sterling silver heart necklace. I also got a bunch of H&M gift cards and a Sephora gift card. (Hello, shopping sprees!) I really couldn’t be happier. With my budget, I did my best getting all of my loved ones the best presents I could. I printed some photos I had taken over the year, and put together some jarred goodies. Hopefully by next year I can amp up the gift giving myself.

I began going to the gym immediately and my entire body has been extremely sore for the past week, but it feels so great. I missed feeling sore!

For New Year’s Eve, Rob and I decided to have a quiet night in. We went out to eat and had some drinks at home. I wore a new outfit I got from H&M, which was both simple and edgy.

I can’t wait to get back to reading all of your lovely blog posts and get to commenting! Hope you all had a safe and happy New Year! I look forward to 2012 and can’t wait to make it great!

Thanks to all of my top commenters of the year. I love you guys, and your blogs!
