This is such an overdue post, but better late than never!

In December I was asked to do a photo shoot with Brite Bar Beauty. We met at Chimjes Dallas with about 15 or so Dallas bloggers. Chimjes is so cool! They have multiple rooms that are decorated in themes such as Paris, New York, Barcelona, etc. I took a couple pictures in the Paris room. They did our hair and makeup, we had a couple drinks and shot a couple different looks. It was so much fun! I moved to Dallas in August so I don’t know that many people. It was so nice to make some new friends! I can’t wait to see who else I meet and what other opportunities I receive through events & blogging.

2019!

Oh hey, 2019!

I always say, “it’s a new year & it’s time for change” but never really strive to do so. This year I wanted to set some goals and reflect on my past year. I have been feeling a little down lately and not so much myself. I want to do more, find my purpose, and be happier in the upcoming year.

A few of my goals for 2019

  1. More self care. I feel like this helps everyone feel a little better about themselves. When you feel good about yourself, it helps you to keep striving to be the best version of yourself.
  2. Eat healthier & workout 5x a week. This is a typical New Year’s goal, but I really need this is my life. I have tried the Keto diet and I think I’m going to do it again. I’m going to try to not give up for 21 days. I also want to do 100 push-ups a week and work up to 100 a day. [I’m so out of shape #yikes]
  3. Worry less & Be happier. I am such a worrier. I let stuff get to me and sometimes allow certain things to ruin my day. I want less conflict, stress, and worry in 2019. I want to take a step back and think before I start to lose myself in things that are irrelevant.
  4. Grow closer to God. I want to pray more, read more, and turn to Him about my problems rather than my friends all the time. I also want to be better about thanking Him for all the good He blesses me with daily.
  5. Positivity. I need to be a more positive person and surround myself with like minded people.
  6. Work on my attitude and hiding my emotions. I wear my heart on my sleeve. It can be a good and bad thing. When I’m sad, mad, or happy you’re going to know bc I simply can’t hide it. The saying, “fake it until you make it” needs a little more attention this year.
  7. Figure out what I want in life. I want to find a career I love. I want to find my purpose. I want to live up to my potential. I want to be all happy!
  8. Trust. I have the hardest time trusting others. I have always had an issue with this.
  9. Tan. This isn’t a goal, but I know you all saw these pictures and thought “oh wow she needs some fake & bake!”

SO- reading that back, it sounds a tad bit depressing… But I have a lot of goals to better myself in the new year and I hope to do so!

What are your New Year goals?

I love winter because I get to pull out all the fur! Plus, the beanies, hot chocolate, fuzzy socks, chunky sweaters… you get the idea.

All my friends judge me for buying fur clothes, blankets, pillows, ya know… the whole 9 yards. I can’t resist, what can I say?! I’m not going to lie, it’s even on my gift list this year.. oops!

Casual Look

Top: American Eagle Jeans: Levi’s Booties: Tory Burch Purse: Kelly Wynne, similar Watch: Michael Kors Bracelet: David Yurman Earrings: Kendra Scott

I wore this look last week to run a few errands around town. It is more of a fall look, but here in Texas it’s been 70 degrees… How crazy! It’s hard to dress for the weather & season when they don’t match up like they are suppose to.. lol But that’s okay bc I am all about flannels. They are so comfy but stylish, too. If you aren’t loving this green, American Eagle has many other colors as well. They are currently 50% off!

Who else is a Kelly Wynne lover? I love her line and the more she brings out new product, the more I love it!

I hope everyone is having a good Tuesday!

Baby It’s Cold Outside

IMG_5455IMG_5449IMG_5457IMG_5426IMG_5462IMG_5448IMG_5460IMG_5456IMG_5451

Coat: Thread & Supply Top: Romeo + Juliet Leggings: BP Scarf: TJ Maxx, similar Beanie: CC Boots: Vince Camuto Purse: LV

Today was the first day we finally had cold weather! It has legit been like 70-80 degrees all through November and now in December as well, it’s crazy! I think Texas has the most bipolar weather ever. I did not want to get out of bed this morning knowing it was 32 degrees outside. I don’t know what it is about cold weather, but it makes me want to cuddle up and watch movies while drinking coffee all day. I think most people can relate to that too!

I haven’t found anything good to watch lately on Netflix that I’ve just been dying to watch. I have watched 13 Reasons Why, Riverdale, and Stranger Things. I plan on starting This Is Us next. Has anyone watched it? I’ve heard it’s good!

This look is one of my favorites. You will probably see this scarf a lot this winter. It gives me all the heart eyes! A peacoat is such a good statement piece to have in your closet. I have been eyeing the coats and jackets from Loft. They are so pretty and currently all 40% off!

I hope everyone is having a good week!
