Oh What a Year! A Review of 2017; SneakPeak at 2018

Image
Hey lovelies! Welcome to the last blog post of 2017! *throws confetti*  Hope everyone is having a lovely New Years Eve. I myself am spending a quiet New Years Eve at home because it's so freaking cold here! But I'll happily ring in the New Year eating Chinese take-out, drinking Raspberry Champagne, playing Harry Potter Clue with my parents and watching The Thin Man movie series (aka, one of my favorite movies of all time).
About to get wrecked!
Also I have a party hat

(This face is how I feel about this year tbh)

   Honestly, I'm happy to see 2017. It was a really rough year for me personally. I feel like a lot of things changed but nothing really changed if you know what I mean. I changed jobs a few times, I started the year in a strained, in hindsight, toxic relationship, and now I'm single. Still, I'm basically in the same position that I was in last December, which is the absolute last place I wanted to be.
   As I'm writing this, I'm facing the vision b…

One Item Challenge (Leopard Print Boots)

Image
Hey Lovelies! Hope your holiday was merry and bright! My Christmas was pretty stressful to tell you the truth. My dog Trixie got very sick Christmas Eve and we had to take her to the 24-hour animal hospital because our vet was closed. Luckily we caught the infection before it could get worse and by Christmas day she was back to her old self, which was a Christmas miracle.  What did everyone get for Christmas (or any other holiday you celebrate)? Here is my holiday haul!

It was a very cozy Christmas with a fluffy leopard print bathroom, sheets, fox knee socks, Harry Potter figure, Wet hairbrush, my favorite perfume, and an awesome pair of boots with shiny gold heels. Not pictured is the tons of Amazon and Hobby Lobby gift cards I got, the mug and FANCY lipsticks I got from Kat, and booze.
 Honesty Kat's lipsticks and my boots are probably my favorite gifts this year. I mean look how shiny they are! (heart eyes). Which got me to thinking about my favorite non-heel shoes which lead m…

Holiday Outfits

Image
Happy Holidays Lovelies! Can you believe that the Holiday Season is here? I can't, like real talk guys, I'm super far behind. I have a gift to buy, presents to wrap and none of my Christmas cards are out. Seriously the holidays always sneak up on me and I'm never ready. I'm just happy that I got the tree out. (I know the angel is lopsided, but let's be honest, that's how I feel, lol)
Okay, so pretending I have my life together, I have come up with some great outfit ideas for any occasion you might face. From Ugly Sweater Parties to Christmas morning. Here are some outfit ideas that will make the season a little bit brighter. 
Ugly Sweater  Fun fact: I hate ugly sweater. I am not a fan in any way shape or form and have actually given my friend Dan shit for his ugly sweater (to be fair it was horrible). Then again I almost bought a Darth Vader ugly sweater but it is beside the point.  In any case, if you are asked to attend an ugly sweater party, or a silly family…

Few of My Favorite Things

Image
Raindrops on roses, and whiskers on kittens, brown paper packages tied up strinngggg, these are a few of my favorite thingggggs 
Hello loves! Yes, it's the holidays, a time of Christmas lights, baking cookies, and listening to Christmas songs like that (yes I know Sound of Music isn't a Christmas movie, but it kinda is). Actually if it were me singing this song it be more like: frosting on cookies and words well written, leopard print pattern on everything-these are a few of my favorite things. 

Not gonna lie guys, this sucked the big one, it was just terrible from start to finish and I'm hoping to God that one day I'll look back on this shitty year and laugh, but for now 2017: suck it.
  HOWEVER I'm really trying hard to be positive so I decided to do a Few of my favorite things about this years, cool stuff I read, outfits I slayed, and products that I liked and just some cool positive stuff that I've tried to find in this shitty year, because darn it I'm go…

Winterizing Your Summer Wardrobe

Image
Hello loves! It's been a crazy couple of weeks, let me tell you. I've had a couple major life changes that I think are for the better, but I'm in a rocky adjustment period. Thank you guys for all the love!
    Anyway, back to blogging, as you probably know by now I am not a fan of winter. It doesn't like me and I certainly don't like it. It's cold, it's dark and just plain gloomy. Pass! I live in Upstate New York, where we get a lot of Canada winds so the winters are cold and snowy AF.
   Another major thing I distain about winter is that clothing options are so limited. Truth me folks, there is nothing sadder than watching me put away all my pretty summer dresses, shorts and tank tops away in favor of long sleeves and sweaters.  Not that I hate long sleeves or sweaters, but they get boring after awhile. And I know you can dress outfits up with scarfs but I'm honestly getting bored with scarfs being the savior of my outfits. So, I put the ole' noddl…

Body Positivity Chat

Image
Hey loves! Sorry I went M.I.A  last week and missed last weeks blog. I had a lot going on last Monday and it was all super emotional and mixed into the blues I get when the season changes (it's so cold here and it gets dark at 4 p.m. and it's all ugh) so I took a little self-care week, and while I don't feel completely healed from, but I'm ready to blog again though I'm going to ease myself into things since I'm still a touch raw.
So today I want to talk about something I've been struggling with all of my life, what most people have or currently struggling with: Body Positivity.

I've never been happy with how my body looked. Hell, I've hated my thighs since I was four and have been counting calories since I was 18. My obsession to have the "perfect body" couple with my need for control when I felt I was not in control have completely taken over my life. I've lost and gain and lost again over 20 pounds still haven't found happiness …

Fashion Playlist

Hey Stunners! How's the start of your November going so far? I'm currently doing NaNoWriMo, which is the first time I'm "officially" doing it and let me tell you folk, it's intense. I'm currently I'm 9,043 words, and going! Lol, please send coffee and help.  (ugh my arms, yuck!)
Okay, remember how last week I was addicted to making mood boards? Well this week you have to indulge in my love of creating playlists (hey, you voted for this!). I made a fall travel playlist for my job at TravelPride and I had so much fun with I thought I would do one for here. Normally when I'm doing photo shoots for the blog I'm listening to music, to kinda pump me up and feeling good about the shoot. I also listen to certain music while getting ready or trying on outfits. I often fall very quickly into body shaming myself or feeling self-conscious about myself when getting ready, trying on clothes, or taking photos for the blog, so having fun, high energy music, r…

Packing For A Fall Trip

Image
Hello Lovelies! Can you believe it's the end of October?! Autumn is going by so fast and honesty the only fall activity I've done so far is drink an endless amount of Pumpkin Spice coffee (I know, I'm super lame and low key a shut-in).  I spent most of my time at the paper doing Halloween stories and now I'm on Christmas stories! Well, I decided to give Fall one last shout out by putting together a sort of packing list for a fall trip.
Only I not doing a "typical" packing list, telling the basic of packing (honestly if need someone to tell you to pack panties you are beyond my help lol).  But I'm doing a fall aesthetic packing list, filled with items that really gives your road trip, or any trip that fall feel. Remember, it's only going to feel like fall in most places for a few more weeks, so indulge a little ;).

Fall Packing List 
-Knee-high boots  -Mental travel mug (not ceramic because you will break it)  -Dark plum lipstick (because fall) -bottle of h…

Easy Halloween Costumes To Do At The Last Second

Image
Hey lovelies! Halloween is eight days from now, do you have your Halloween costume ready? Because I sure don't. Fun fact: I love Halloween, but I'm such a bad planner for it. I've been writing about Halloween for over a month at work so I'm a little Halloween out. I also didn't decorate this year or really do anything (I've been a little out it), and all my friends lived hundreds of miles away from me so I don't really have any plans. Buutttt If you're not a complete loser like me, you probably have some Halloween party plans, or maybe you have some last minute plans that you need to have a costume for ASAP. You don't have the time, money, or energy to head to the store and pay good money for some itchy costume you'll only wear once. So I've made it a mission today to look through my closet and put together a few fun costumes, McGuvier style that you can make a put on in no time. Who says that Halloween has to be hard?
