Christmas presents haul!

Hey everyone! So this is gonna be a little haul on what I've bought myself for Christmas and for working so hard this past year through school, work, and my sorority! 

First thing I bought was actually on Christmas around 10pm at night. My paycheck went in early, as it normally does, and I decided to get myself a monogram necklace! I was thinking of getting an acrylic one from Knot Just Bracelets on Etsy. As I was thinking about it, I decided a silver one would look better and would go with more than an acrylic one. So, I found one from another store on Etsy that wasn't too expensive!

That picture is an example one of the silver 2 inch monogram necklace I'll be getting soon! Once I get it, I'll make a post about it!

The second thing I got was my Julep box for January! If any of you don't know what Julep is, it's a nail polish/other beauty products brand and they have monthly subscription boxes that you can either get sent to you, a friend, or you can skip if you don't have the money that month! I haven't gotten a Julep box in FOREVER, but when I saw that there was a box that had the plié wand in it, I was SOLD! I also had enough points to get the plié wand creativity kit which includes extra tools for the plié wand! I will also make a new post about that once that comes in! 

Next, today I went to the outlet mall near my house! The first thing I got was a shirt from Zumiez, which, if you don't know what that is, it's like a skate brand store. I bought this shirt from Empyre there for $20! 

I thought it was super cute with the elephant on it and I am currently obsessed with the color on top, the wine/burgundy color!

Lastly, I went to the Kate Spade store to find a purse I had been wanting for a while! The store was 60% off! While they didn't have the one I wanted, they did have the same style but in black (I had wanted the one in hot pink!) So, I got it! It was originally $85 and with the 60% off, it was $34!! I am in LOVE with it and I am so happy that I got it! 

my snapchat to my friends after I got my purse! 

My Jeralyn bag!

IT'S SO BEAUTIFUL.
My Jeralyn bag is black with black polka dots and the spades interspersed into the bag, with a hot pink inside liner that says 'Kate Spade New York' all over it! It's soooooo cute!

So, those are the gifts I bought myself for Christmas! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas week and I hope you all have a Happy New Year if I don't post before then!

OOTW: Day 7!

Hey everyone! Today was my first day off of work since last Monday (not counting Christmas)! So, mom and I headed out to do a little bit of shopping! I'll show you my recent purchases in my next post, but for now, here's my outfit from today!

Sweater & leggings: Walmart/ Necklace & watch: Charming Charlie/
Tank: Comfort Colors (one of my sorority shirts)/ Boots: Payless
I was feeling particularly "basic" today, haha! But, it was comfortable and cute so I don't even care! Hope you enjoyed my outfit today on the last day of my OOTW series! I'll probably do another one of these when school starts up in January! 

Stay tuned for my next post about my Christmas presents I've bought myself! :)

OOTW: Day 6... I forgot.


So, today (the 26th) was super busy for me! I woke up, got ready, went to Walmart and Dollar Tree to get some things for my coworkers for Christmas gifts, went home, made their little bags really quickly, stopped and got some food, and then went to work.

I then came home and, as always, immediately changed out of my work clothes. So, as I was sitting and watching Frozen a bit ago, I remembered that I had not done my OOTD picture. Woops.

Here's a little idea of what I was wearing though!
  • black long sweater from Target
  • black leggings
  • a pink rose and pearl necklace from work 
  • my gold watch from work
  • my new brown boots I got for Christmas from Payless
  • my gold earrings from Target from a couple OOTD's ago
Here's a picture of my boots and necklace from the Payless and Charming Charlie websites!

York Riding Boots- Payless

Petals and Pearls necklace- Charming Charlie

I promise to do an OOTD today technically (the 27th) as I'll be out shopping! I might even do a little mini haul! 

Have a good rest of your week everyone!

Christmas 2014!

Hi guys! So, here is a little recap of my Christmas! 

Woke up and showered and got ready to go to Christmas breakfast at Waffle House, our tradition! Here was my view while I was waiting on my mom and sister to get ready! 

Our tree with lots of presents!
I also noticed a present I had been wanting and was SUPER excited about, you may be able to see it in the picture above the corner of the box for my dad's new grill! 

ELSA BEARRRRRRRRRRR! 
That's right, I got the Elsa bear from Build A Bear for Christmas! Because, what 19 year old doesn't want a Frozen bear for Christmas?! Here's the other stuff I got for Christmas as well! 


I got: my Elsa bear, some brown boots, a new Castle calendar, the Elsa Pop! figure, a new laptop battery, some black flats, a little Frozen journal, a Frozen bag, the Frozen dvd/ blu-ray, a $10 Build A Bear gift card, some fleece lined leggings, the Bath and Body Works Cashmere Glow lotion and body wash, Frozen jelly beans, a Frozen pen, and some Reeses! 

Can you tell I like Frozen? :) 

After presents, we started baking a TON of cookies, made dinner, ate, and now I'm sitting here typing this up and I might watch Frozen! :)

Have a good rest of your week everyone and Merry Christmas!

Hey everyone! I know I'm posting this a day late, but yesterday was super busy for me! I had work from 1 to 7 and then came home and helped make cupcakes to bring to my sister's friend's house for her daughter Haley's birthday and so we could exchange presents! So, I actually had 2 different outfits for Christmas Eve, my work outfit and then the outfit for the present exchange at my sister's friend's!

Watch & Necklace: Charming Charlie 
Bow: BowsDownSouth/ Santa Earrings (that you can't see): My mom's/

OOTW Day 2! (cause I forgot day 1!)

Hey everyone! 

I am a super slacker and forgot to do Day 1 of my Christmas OOTW series! But my outfit was pretty boring for work anyways so it's okay! :)

But, I did remember to do today's OOTW picture so I'll post those here and give you all the details on what I wore!

Sweater: Charming Charlie/ Black Jeggings: Walmart/ Boots: Payless
Watch and Earrings: Charming Charlie
OOTD Pic! 
As you can see, today I went to work and most of the stuff I wore came from my work, Charming Charlie! I'll try to wear something cute again to work tomorrow so you can see some more cute accessories! I'll also try to remember to do this again tomorrow! :) 

Have a good day everyone and I'll be back tomorrow (well technically today) with another post!

Busy Holiday Season!

Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing great and, if you have one, your winter break is going great! 

I finished all of my finals for my third semester in college and I'm pretty happy with my grades! Work has been absolutely INSANE with the amount of customers and sales we've had! I am currently on day 4 of 9 straight days at work, which is actually not too bad, and I get a good paycheck next Friday so I'm definitely gonna be buying myself some after Christmas gifts for a job well done at school! 

The week of Christmas I will be doing OOTW posts on here and possibly a video to be posted on Youtube, as well as filming a December favorites video at the end of the month! I'm also going to be making an end of the year recap video of this year with tons of pictures from this year and I might post that on here so you guys can see what my life is like! 

I'll also be doing a Christmas haul on what I got for Christmas, what I bought myself, and some more stuff my parents are getting me at the beginning of January and such cause they don't have a lot of money for Christmas gifts right now! 

Be on the lookout for all of those and I'll talk to you guys again soon!
