2019 here we are! First off let me start by staying that I hope each and everyone of you have a wonderful and prosperous year. I love the new year. I do not make resolutions for myself because I know I will not keep them but I do like to look at the new year as a fresh start to focus more on my passions and push myself a bit more. At the end of the day it kind of is just another day of life and it’s not like I’m going to wake up January 2nd and be this completely different person who’s going to be absolutely perfect at her career, perfect relationship, and religiously hit the gym everyday and have a perfect bod but I can try and that’s good enough.
I am also going to work on being positive at all times. Now this doesn’t mean that I have to be happy all the time it just means that no matter what happens I know something better will come out of it.
I love love love this Alice + Olivia embellished dress I bought last year well 2017. I never wore it for some reason and this year I thought to myself… What dress shall I buy for New Year’s. Wait I don’t need a dress I still have that Alice + Olivia one … Don’t you love when that happens? No need to spend more money when you already have previously. I added these fun white Sam Edelman booties with silver studs. I never knew how much I would LOVE white boots. Now I need more in my life.
Neon Neon Neon! You know I absolutely love neon colors and this sweater is giving me life! Since I couldn’t splurge and get the gorgeous Ulla Johnson verson I was going to get the Zara version. Worst horror story ever, sold out. Of course Zara RARELY restocks items that have sold out since I went to the very beloved insta-brand Fashion Nova. I have never never never bought anything from the site. Honestly I find the site very intimidating. All the models perfect “Kardashian” like bodies make me feel like their clothing would not look as perfect on me since I don’t have a tiny waist and large hips and buns and a vivacious chest. But how can a oversized sweater go wrong on anyone. SOLD! And love it. The quality could be better but for the price I get it.
New Year’s day shopping with le mother. She loves going to the mall on the first day of the year and we have made it a bit of a tradition. We spend hours walking around lusting at all the sparkly goodies and adding endless items to our wish list. This photo was taken in front of the Chanel boutique, I love their use of florescent colors for their window display. I wore this gorgeous Dodo Bar Or dress I styled previously on this blog.

Movie time! One of my FAVORITE pass times is going to the movies. Netflix and chill with my boo is great but I need the big screen and big bucket of popcorn 🍿 and large Coke with EXTRA ice. Sadly not many concession people get the importance of EXTRA ice in my coke. These shots were taken in the arcade area. I wore this lovely glitter bodysuit, which btw filled my boo’s care with glitter and he was not happy about it. I felt ba but I didn’t know the glitter was going to leave a trail.
How cute is Kitty? She wanted to make an appearance. For this look I wore an Equipment top with L’Agence jeans and again the white booties.
How cute is this ring? I would like to do a YouTube video about this ring. It’s by the brand Poppy Angeloff. The creator of Lime Crime. It’s so fun, it’s gold and the Pansy is hand painted. So unique.
I don’t know what is up with my putting my hand by my mouth in these two shots. I just don’t know what to do with my hands, they can get a bit awkward. This lovely sweater was bought at Forever 21 last year.
And finally the perfect Christmas gift my boo gave me. She’s a beauty.
