This & That: NYE Edition


I hope everyone's had a safe and happy holiday season! I've been enjoying time with family and friends and eating way too much bad food.  I am also attempting to start the new year out right by using my days off from work to clean and organize.  

What a difference a year makes, right? I feel like I have truly changed in a year given that this time last year I wasn't sleeping well, wasn't eating well, was depressed and on the verge of a full on nervous breakdown.  Some big changes this year (losing a job, being unemployed, working on my fears and insecurities, getting a great job) really helped me grow and I am happy to say I am feeling great and feel like I have finally conquered many of my past struggles that made me a less than desirable person a year ago and years prior to that.  So thank you for always being here to read my old decrepit blog in the good times and the bad!

So, if you follow me on Instagram you'll know that I am a TV show/Netflix junkie and I love getting into a new, captivating show.  I've done: The Affair, Homeland, True Detective, The Killing, Ray Donovan, True Blood, Breaking Bad, House of Cards, and many others I'm probably forgetting to list.  I posted on Instagram that I need new show recommendation and I got tons of comments and great recommendations.  I wanted to also ask for your recommendations because I'm sure some of you aren't on Instagram.  So give me your show recs!

I'd like to thank Slynnro for recommending these $5.88 sunglasses via Amazon on her Instagram (name: Slynnro).  They are just the shape that I was looking for and for nearly 6 dollars you can't go wrong!

This is an outfit I wore when I was in Las Vegas for work training ... first of all, you all need this dress!  It is the perfect little black dress that can be dressed up or dressed down and the best part is that it's on super-sale.  It's a very nice and thick material and is slightly longer in the back.  

Madewell Black Dress (extra 40% off with code EXTRA40)


 And the leopard booties are a must-have! I have been stalking these all season and they finally were included in the J.Crew Extra 30% off sale so I snatched them up.  They are actually really comfortable and I was able to wear them around Las Vegas all day without feeling like I needed to change shoes.

I recently found these Rag & Bone Harrow booties on sale at Barney's for $150 dollars! I wanted to let you all know that these are SO comfortable and I love them so much more than the popular Rag & Bone Newbury boot but you most definitely need to size up.  I normally wear a 6.5 and sized up to a 37 in these.  I wasn't able to find them so cheap online anywhere, but I found the black version on sale for $198 on Saks.

Cheers to 2015


Everyone have a safe and fun New Year's Eve!!!!

Happy New Year! Of course I had to go look at Madewell and now I have a whole outfit I want and nowhere to wear it. Once you don't want those comfy booties, pass them my way, lady. :)

FYI, you are by far my favorite blogger. You tell it like it is, and are not trying to get me to buy crap just because they send you something to promote. I love your style and your attitude towards life. You are the real deal, not something fake. Thank you for being you. :)
