Home for the Holidays

Hey guys!  This winter season has been pretty fun so far, I must say!  I've been hanging with friends, enjoy newness in my life, and continuing to find new ways to be creative!  It has also been eye opening.  A lot of changes, new people in my life, and I am enjoying every minute of it!  I am, however, missing my best friend Sasha (who is currently residing in Germany).  We keep in touch pretty well, but it's not the same, not physically seeing/hanging out with her.  I have plans to visit her next summer, but it just isn't the same bringing in the New Year without her!!

As this year is coming to an end, it's time to reflect on life's blessings.  Revisit the good and the bad.  Realize the things you would like to change, and things you would like to evolve.  Holding on to the memories of loved ones you lost, and finding a way to move on, to keep peace and balance in your life!

I always make New Years Resolutions.  Although it may be cliche, I think it's great to have goals and aspirations, and working everyday to achieve these goals is what keeps me going!  Keep reaching!

Like my hair?!  I am loving it!  I was inspired by Alex of The Good Hair Blog, and it is so easy to maintain!  I'll be adding this new "doo" in my rotation of "go-to hair doo's!"
Sharing with you all some decorations around the house :)

All of my Christmas shopping is done (I did it all online), and all I have to do is wrap my presents!  I'll probably save that for Christmas Eve... There needs to be some last minute element to cut down my anxiousness/excitement for Christmas Day!!

I've also been on the hunt for a New Year's Eve outfit, but am having no luck!  Every dress I find myself liking is either sold out or unavailable in my size.  I may have to go to the mall and find some pieces to whip together.  Do you guys have any plans for NYE?  I am heading to the city again, but my plans aren't solidified.  Whatever I do, I just want to bring in the New Year with the people I love!  

Happy holidays!!
