About Me

My photo
I'm a simple kind of girl, but a true girly girl. I like pink....no I change that, I LOVE pink, and shoes, LOTS of shoes. I've been blessed to have this life and I plan on embarking on all the journeys that come with each day.

My New Year's Eve OOTN

Hello Ladies! This evening I will be spending my New Year's Eve at church. It's been a long time since I've done this, and I'm actually pretty excited about it. Even though I wont be dolled up and as fabulous as you all will be, I think this outfit that I've chosen will allow me to still be comfy, YET stylish, all in one.

What gorgeous looks will you all be flaunting for the New Year?

My 2011 Recap

I snagged this little questionnaire from Jaclyn, over on Love Life Style , and thought it would be nice to share. Considering I've been M.I.A. for a few months and deleted all my previous posts, this can give you guys a little insight to how my life has

1. What did you do in 2011 that you’d never done before?
Got my first credit card......in fact I've ended the year with 3 (yes loves I know, I got a pretty late start)

2. Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I'm never good at making resolutions because, the truth is, I never follow through. My goal for 2011 was to be more financially stable and get in the gym. (getting there, I did finally get a gym membership lol)

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
Nope to this one, no one close to me popped out any spawn this year.

4. Did anyone close to you die?
Yes, 3 of my cousin's were killed in car crash, due to a drunk driver, on June 5. (Here would be where I'd link the post where I discussed it, BUT considering all my posts are gone.......moving on)

You can read the story here

5. What countries did you visit?
None this year, I am looooong over due for a tropical vacation

6. What would you like to have in 2012 that you lacked in 2011?
Unconditional love and pure happiness (these both showed up towards the end of 2011, this coming year I'd like it to flow throughout)

7. What dates from 2011 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
- 9/11/11- The day someone special came BACK into my life
- April 1- The day I moved out of my apartment with no knowledge of how the next few months would play out (HUGE learning experience)
- 3/30- I turned 25

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
Getting MY life back

9. What was your biggest failure?
Letting someone else determine my happiness and allowing myself to feel unworthy.

No on this one. I was blessed. (knocking on wood because there is still a couple days left)

11. What was the best thing you bought?


12. Where did most of your money go?
Living expenses

13. What did you get really excited about?
The future. And this amazing human being...

14. What song will always remind you of 2011?

15. Compared to this time last year, are you:
- happier or sadder? EXTREMELY happy, content, and overjoyed with who I've become. I'm so much stronger
- thinner or fatter? Thinner, dropped about 8lbs! (whoop whoop)
- richer or poorer? Slightly richer (I've been having a horrible spending habit lately) This will be the year of SAVING.

24. What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?
I believe that everything happens for a reason, but all in all, my year has ended on an amazing note. Next year will definitely be a great year (I'm CLAIMING IT....dreams will come true)

25. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2011?
Casual.....my heels everyday and dressing up times have come and gone. Give me some jeans, a t-shirt and some Ugg boots/Flip flops and I'm good to go!

26. What kept you sane?
My mother, my friends, and Mr. C (refer to # 13)

27. Tell us valuable life lessons you learned in 2011.
No one can make you happy but you. Put God (or whatever faith you have). Never allow anyone to make you feel like you aren't worthy of happiness. Listen to your mother, she knows! Love like you've never been hurt.

Out With The Old, In With The New

Well, well, well....Hi Ladies!! Yes, I have been on an extended hiatis, and I do apologize for leaving without any warning or explanation. But life has been extremely crazy these past few months....BATSHIT CRAZY!! They say if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans, and this past year proved that to be very VERY true. The good thing about it all is, I am in the exact place in my life that I need to be. I have never been happier, more content, and filled with so much love and aspiration as I am at this moment in my life. Its almost like God had to build me up, knock me down, and put me in the exact place where I started before I tried to do it all on my own. And for this I am truly grateful. As this blog goes on, you will notice the changes that have taken place so I wont overload you with all the details in my first post back.

I would like to bring your attention to the new look going on, on my blogspot. Pretty shnazzzy right?! However, you will also notice that, me being completely computer/technologically literate, that all of my previous posts have been deleted. Yep, my bad....something went wrong and poof....everything was gone. I look at it as a gift and a curse! I would've definitely loved to look back over the past year, and reflect on where I've been, and where I'm going. But on the other hand, maybe this is a great "fresh start" all around. I hope you ladies will stick with me, because I've got a whole lotta love and life to give! :)

I thought this would be the perfect time to re-release my revamped blog, in the New Year. I'm not a big fan of resolutions because I feel, we as humans, never really see those things through. This year I plan to continue to do what I've been doing. Living my life....but each day, trying to become a better me. Yes, there are so many goals that I want to accomplish financially, physically, and emotionally but why wait til the new year? I know....its just something so psychologically refreshing about a new year. Feels like we're getting a second chance to do it all over again. But as I close, remember tomorrow is never promised. So as this year of 2011 comes to an end, and the new year of 2012 begins, lets reflect on where we've been, and lets celebrate where we are going. There is a huge master plan for us all that we cannot even phathom.

So lets put on our heels, make-up our faces, take down our hair, and bring in this year in style! Have a wonderful and safe New Year!

Until next time~
