New Year’s Resolutions and Goals

I’m going to be that person and express just how much I can not believe/get over the fact that another whole year, 12 whole months, has passed us by. It’s insane! (Is it just me or is time moving faster? No, just me? You feel it, too..right!?) 2015 was pretty amazing, but I’m looking forward to the clean, fresh slate that is a new year. I’m not going to any fancy parties as I’ll be ringing in the new year at work (woo hoo!), but I took some…

2 NYE Looks: Sweet and Sexy

December 23rd, the day before Christmas Eve, I had one of those, holy-crap-I-have-nothing-to-wear-moments. We’ve all been there! The worst. Now, logically speaking, I had something to wear. It would have taken some piecing together, but somewhere in the depths of my closet and the corners of my dresser drawers, I had something to wear. But, in that particular moment there was no rationalizing with myself and the only cure for my fashion void panic attack was: shopping. I was pretty sure a cute new dress would calm my nerves and satisfy…

The Friday Five 12.25.15

MERRY CHRISTMAS! I hope everyone has an amazing today filled with family, friends, and fun holiday traditions. I can guarantee you that up to this point in the day I’ve frolicked around waking everyone up, convincing them that no it’s not too early to open presents, proceeded to open presents, eaten my weight in bacon and cookies (totally an approved part of a balanced breakfast during the Christmas season #letmelivemylife), and spent way too much time getting glam for our holiday get-togethers. I’ve decided this Friday Five will appropriately be dedicated to my…

The Friday Five 12.18.15

I never thought I would be excited about anything Stars Wars related but OHMYGAWD you guys! The new movie comes out today and I’m actually really looking forward to seeing it. (Like, have my outfit-picked-out excited!) I hadn’t seen all of the movies (I’d actually only seen Episode IV) so Ted made sure to take care of that so I would be prepared (and not confused) when we saw the new one (Thanks for sticking with me through several marathons due to my tendency to fall asleep during movies. You’re…

5 Holiday Wrapping Tips and Tricks

I think I have mentioned my passion for wrapping gifts before but in case I haven’t, I love wrapping gifts. Love it. I just think it’s so fun not only to give gifts (I consider myself a competitive gift giver because I’m always try to one up myself and pick out a more perfect gift than the previous year…I’m telling you! I take Christmas and birthdays and such very seriously) but to also wrap them up in a super pretty and eye-catching way. Now I know that wrapping gifts…
