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!

Hey, I put some new shoes on..

…and suddenly everything is right!

Here is my attempt at a “what I wore” post, but I wish would have had more accessories to go with this outfit. If I was at home and not living out of a suit case, I would have paired this with a large bangle bracelet, a long statement necklace and a brown/tan purse to accentuate the shoes and bring it all together. My best attempt at any accessory was my gold-mirrored Ray Ban aviators 🙂


Flats: Steve Madden Top: Pacsun, Kirra Shorts: Ruehl Sunglasses: Ray Ban
