Merry Christmas!

I know I don't blog as much as some of you ladies (I don't see how you do it!) but here I am, blogging. I am thankful for everyone who has supported this blog adventure of mine. It seems like I started it yesterday, but it's been 6 months! I'm excited to see the trends of 2013... do you think neon will stick? I sure hope so.  My mother quickly told me she disapproved of the following look, so that makes me want to put it up more :)

Merry Christmas!! xo

Deck the Halls

Ah, the weekend. Time to relax, party, relax from partying... at least that's how my cycle goes. Tomorrow, some friends and I are going to look at Christmas lights. A little early, but hey, we'll beat the crowds right? Speaking of the holidays, I decided to reveal my Christmas party dress! I love the emerald green and the cutout in the back. I'm a fan on A-line patterns because they flatter curves and show off the skinniest part of the waist. And of course, I had to add the pearls to be a true Southern lady.

Enjoy your weekend lovelies! xo

5 Life Tips

Now, I am by no means a psychologist, life expert, or experienced personnel of any sorts. However, I read an article that inspired me to share with you life lessons according to Allison. So, here we go!
1) Give control over to God
       I'm not here to convert you to Christianity, but I do think this one takes a load off of my mind. When your a constant worrier like myself, it helps to just read a Psalm (Psalm 32:8 for example), say a prayer, or take a moment to give control over to God. Besides, most of it doesn't matter anyway.
2) Stop comparing yourself to others!
     I know, I know she has the great boyfriend or killer abs or great fashion sense, blah blah blah. But you need to stop comparing yourself to her! You have alot to offer and are an awesome person too. Nothing is ever what it seems from the outside and I guarantee you that girl is going through some issues just like you. Anyways, she is probably comparing herself to you too!
3) Work Out
     Now, I am no fitness guru but I love to work out. Not saying you have to work out everyday for 2 hours (who has time for that?) but it's healthy, boost your mood, and de-stresses you.   I also reccomend making the perfect playlist for your workouts. I mean really, who doesn't feel good after a great workout?
4) Spend time alone
     I heard a great quote once about how it's good to spend time alone so you aren't defined by another. Even if it's just 30 minutes, take some time out of the week to do something you enjoy, ALONE. Watch the Real Housewives, pin til your heart is content, go for a walk, whatever.
5) Love
     Not to sound sappy but make sure to tell those close to you that you love them. It will boost both of your moods and what have you got to lose? Tell a friend you appreciate how they listened to you, a family member how they drive you crazy but you will always love them, or just tell your cat they look extra fluffy today.
Hope you are enjoying your Sunday!! xo

What I've Been Up To

Good day everyone! How was Thanksgiving for y'all? I had a wonderful time visiting with my fam, cooking, and relaxing. I am truly thankful for all I have been blessed with, especially my readers!

The weather has been in the 70's and I've been cooking alot of yummy dishes with friends as of late. I must say, life is treating me well. Of course, I have daily struggles but overall I am extremely grateful. Here are some photos of what I have been up to lately.

Get out there and rock your week! xo

Printed Pants

Who else is excited about Thanksgiving? I love to eat and I love to cook so it is a holiday made for me. This year we are going to the Cowboys game with my dad, as is our new family tradition, and cooking with my mother.
Of course, my favorite item is the pants. Skinny jean AND leopard print? Yes, please! I found these at Zara in Soho. To get my color fix, I put the pink top in. Loving the printed pant trend.
Have a great day dearies! xo

Cheers to the Weekend!

I am learning it is essential in life to capture the moments because they are gone in an instant. Those are my words of advice. I just spent the night with a dear friend discussing life over wine and music. I love those conversations with close friends where you can just be real and be yourself. Look for a blog coming soon featuring!!

The blazer is another gem scored in NYC and is from MNG. I decided to pair it with a pop of color to add some fun to the outfit but kept the jeans to make it laid back. The shoes are a fun pair I scored in Barcelona at a store near Las Ramblas.

Wishing everyone a lovely evening! xo
