          Sometimes, all black is the way to go. I love black with a pop of color on my lips. Its a great way to add color without having to add another layer. This week has been a really nice start to my New Year and I can’t wait to see what else is to come! I am finally getting back to the gym, finished up half of my winter class and have been eating healthier! I can’t wait to see what these next few weeks of January have in store. I hope that everyone else is having a nice beginning of year as well.

Have a great week.

Winter Wish List

As weird as this may seem, I own one REAL long sleeve shirt. One semi warm long sleeve. THAT’S IT. Living in a city where it snows and gets freezing, that doesn’t really make a lot of sense! Since I have a really abnormal and slightly dangerous shopping addiction, I have been spending all my time stalking blogs and websites on a search for shirts and warm jackets! Thankfully, I have found some and I am going to suggest my favorite to you all.

First off, I have needed some turtleneck’s because I like to be toasty! And I found these inexpensive ones and love them! I also found these awesome ones but I’m waiting to get to the store so that I can get my 15% off student discount!

As for jackets, I found this amazing jacket a few days ago and I can’t wait for it to come in the mail. *heart eyes* So cute.

I hate having to search all on my own for stuff so I love reading Julia’s blog and Emily’s to find outfits. I also love checking Jessica’s blog as well!!!

Alright, let’s get something straight. I don’t dress up every day. Anyone tells you that the do, they are lying. I love to just get comfy every once and awhile. I am a huge fan of Lululemon jacket because they are perfectly sporty but so stylish! And these leggings, omg amazing. They are fuzzy on the inside and are so perfect. I wish I could snuggle in them every day.

Oh yea, this sports bra…AMAZING. It is SO awesome. I had never really looked at the Victoria’s Secret workout stuff, but when we finally got in our store, I took a look and I’m obsessed. Their stuff fits so nicely and is really well made. Take a look at the collecting because its awesome!

Isn’t Bear the cutest?! I love his fuzzy little face so much! Every time I get the chance to snuggle him, I take it. This outfit is totally different than something I would usually wear. I found this shirt hanging out in the back of my closet and found a way to make it work. Sometimes, that’s the best thing to do! I don’t have enough money to go out every weekend to buy new outfits, unfortunately! So looking through my closet to mix up my wardrobe is really nice! Plus, anytime I get to wear my faux fur, I’m a real happy camper. 😉

I love to dress girly BUT it doesn’t work everyday because lets be real, I’m lazy! But I think that this outfit works perfect. I love mixing girly pieces, like this skirt, with something a little more tame like the chambray shirt (one of my favs). I am also loving these shoes. Unfortunately they are old so they can’t be purchased but I love the pointy toe with this look! Whenever I put this skirt on, I feel like I should be walking into a great party! It’s just so fun and flirty.

I am also really loving this monogram necklace. I got it for Christmas and I love it! I have always wanted a monogram necklace and this one is perfect.

P.S. Shoutout to my favorite Irish gal pal, Happy Birthday Rachy. ❤

I said it. I said this year would be a year of good posts! Currently obsessing over this outfit. Perfectly casual and cute. I might not wear this to a big meal, but hey. I love the juxtaposition of the sweater paired with the sparkle skirt! I think it adds the right amount of texture. Another thing I love about this, For the shoes, you could either do a bootie like I did, or dress it up even more with a pair of nude patent pumps, which would also be awesome!

I am seriously loooooving these necklaces. I got them for Christmas and like I said, I’m obsessed. They are affordable and so freakin’ cute. I love the simple details because its totally different than all my other jewelry!

I hope that everyone has a great weekend!

Au Revoir 2014

Overall, I really can’t complain about 2014! I had a pretty good year. I met some awesome people in LA (best experience ever), I got to go to spring training and see my Giants, and I turned 21. I honestly think that this was a pretty great year. Some of the things that made this year memorable are included in this post. Other things are not. Like every year, I feel like I really learn who my true friends are. I am still learning but this year really opened up my eyes. Some things that improved my year were: the best book that I read was Joan Rivers: Diary of a Mad Diva, my favorite restaurant this year has been Gracias Madre, my favorite bar was The Nice Guy, my favorite lipstick has been by MAC, my favorite designer was Kate Spade. These are just a few of the things that have made my year exceptional. Like I mentioned, this has also really been a year of learning. This year I decided to drop my sorority. This was a tough decision  for me to make but I feel that it was for the best. I have really had the opportunity to experience college for myself without having to report to a coach or attend meetings/events/activities. Although this is the first time EVER that I am not involved in an extracurricular activity, I have really learned about myself in these few months. I now, more than ever, appreciate those activities and am so thankful for the friendships and experiences that they gave me! I also had the awesome chance to spend two months in Los Angeles, which was something that will never be able to be replaced. It was the most amazing summer and I am so so so thankful to have had the chance of an amazing experience. I can’t wait to be back in LA living and working where I feel I fit in the best! Here is a recap of what I did this year VERY briefly: IMG_2671 IMG_2920 IMG_2664 image 20140701-205716-75436081.jpg IMG_1775As for what happened in 2014 as seen by the rest of the world: These news stories. The best instagram fashion moments. These big fashion trends. Best selling books of 2014. Top food trends. The best songs of 2014. Like I said, I think this has been a pretty decent year over all. I hope that everyone else also had an enjoyable year, but I hope that 2015 is even better for everyone! I am thinking that this will be a good one. Fingers crossed.
