As I pack for my trip to Riviera Maya to celebrate the New Year, I’m looking back on my year. It was such a crazy but good year. I know we always say that the years go by so fast but this year truly did for me. I’ve grown so much. I’ve had heartbreak and experienced new love. I walked away from my past to look forward to my future.  I saved money all year to finally buy a house (more to come on that). I was lucky enough to be able to lean on my parents, I can’t thank them enough for what they’ve done for me and what they’ve sacrificed for me. Not just over the past year but for my whole life.  I also cherish the new friendships I’ve made this year. Unfortunately when you go through a divorce, you also lose friendships. Sometimes friends take sides, […]

This collection features our figure-flattering high-gloss faux leather fabric. Designed using our fan-favorite Power Waistband with built-in shaping mesh, these styles smooth your middle and center-seam free design eliminates camel toe. -Spanx I have to admit, I was on the fence about purchasing the Spanx Faux Leather leggings. Not because I didn’t think I could style them but because of the price. Let’s be real, $98 for a pair of leggings sounds ridiculous! I don’t even typically wear leggings. I’m not a “leggings are pants, people” type of person. I’m always concerned about the thickness of leggings so I just stay away. But my blogger friends have been talking about how these leggings are a legit game changer. So I bit the bullet. Boy am I glad I did! Not only do they hug you in all the right places, they’re comfortable, they’re pretty easy to style and are super […]

I received this item for free from Influenster for testing and review purposes, all comments and opinions are of my own. I just discovered a new fragrance that smells magical, Marc Jacobs Decadence Eau So Decadent. It is a sensual and luxurious perfume with a woody scent. The woody scent mixed with flowers makes for a glamorous feel.

I don’t know who came up with the idea of Friendsgiving, but I think it’s brilliant. I love my family so much and enjoy spending time with them. I also love the idea of giving thanks to your friends. And in the grand scheme of things, friends are family, aren’t they? Do you host or go to a Friendsgiving gathering every year? If you are new to the idea of Friendsgiving, it’s basically just a celebration of Thanksgiving dinner with your friends. It usually occurs on the Wednesday before or the Friday after Thanksgiving Day, since Thanksgiving is usually reserved for family gatherings. An assortment of food is prepared and stories are shared of why everyone is friends and thankful for each other. Typically the host prepares the turkey and everyone else brings a side dish (potluck style).

Who is ready for Thanksgiving & to eat all the things?!  The turkey, the mashed potatoes, the green bean casserole, the pie! Ok, I’ll stop now. I might be drooling over here. There’s only one way to dress on Thanksgiving, super cute and super comfy! Yes, you can still be super cute even in those leggings! Side note, I know I say super cute a lot, I can’t help it. Isn’t it better than saying “like” all the time? #SorryNotSorry
