I hope you all had a wonderful New Year’s Eve celebration because I know that I did. Howard and I entertained at our apartment, which I love to do, and I made a bunch of different appetizers and snacks. I always have the most fun for NYE when I am with friends and loved ones instead of going out to a bar. I am looking forward to future NYE celebrations to keep the annual NYE party a tradition.
What I wore: | Headband (Claire’s, available in February) | Apt 9 Shirt | Jennifer Lopez for Kohls Skirt | Apt 9 Tights | Metallic Tattoos | Anthropologie Apron |
I hope you have a fabulous Monday!
2014 was such a great year! I got engaged to the man of my dreams, moved back to the midwest, and started a new career. I have learned so much about myself this year and I am looking forward to 2015! Instead of making a New Year’s Resolution I wanted to do a 2015 to do list so I make sure I’m living life to the fullest and enjoy every moment of the upcoming year! I wanted to publish it so I will be held accountable and I am going to try and complete all 10 by the first half of the year!
What is on your 2015 to do list? I hope you all have a fabulous day!!

I love dressing up during the holiday season and when I came across this skirt at Nordstrom I knew I would get use out of it. Between Thanksgiving and New Years Eve there can be so many events to dress up for so I like to get a few key pieces in the beginning of the season and mix it up for each event!
I hope you all have a fabulous Tuesday!

Can you believe that NYE is only two days away? I have no idea where the year has gone to, but it is time to plan what I am wearing and I still have no idea. If you don’t have time to browse the mall in the next two days you can browse the Nordstrom website and sort it by what is in stock at your local store. You can buy it online and pick it up in store, it is the perfect way to shop when you are short on time. Good luck on your search, I know I’ll need it!

This past weekend Howard and I went to my parents house to celebrate Christmas with our extended family and to have breakfast with Santa, which my nieces and nephew love. I knew that this gold lame midi skirt would be perfect for the holidays when I found it at Nordstrom when I was shopping the holiday party.
I have been looking for a midi skirt for a long time so I was excited that I found one that looked flattering on me. It can be challenging to find midi skirts that fit properly because you do not want to look like you are covered in fabric. My advice is to find a midi skirt with lighter fabric, especially if you are not very tall.
I hope you all have a wonderful Monday!

I hate to admit it but I am still not done with my Christmas shopping, and when if comes to giving gifts I really try and think of creative ones. Since I am getting married in May I thought that a guide for the almost Mrs. (or the newlywed) would be perfect! If you have a friend that is getting married soon she will love all of the gifts above because I know that I would! I hope you all have a fabulous Monday and if you still have shopping to do, Happy Shopping!!

Last night I went to the Nordstrom Holiday party that they host for card holders every year and every dollar that you spend your receive 10 points (towards notes!). They had a live band, drinks, and appetizers while you shopped for your holiday gifts, who doesn’t loving shopping and champagne?! If you still have some more holiday shopping to do, why not get 10 point for every dollar that you spend, then you can get something special for yourself with your notes! Check your local Nordstrom and see if they have hosted their annual holiday party yet, if they haven’t you should rsvp and enjoy some holiday spirit and shopping!
I hope you all have a wonderful Monday!
