Valentine's Day can be really fun. Whether you have a date or a galentine's day event. As long as you don't stress about it and have fun! I was never a big believer in Valentine's Day and if I'm being honest, I'm still not. However, that doesn't mean I can't enjoy getting dressed up and going out to dinner with my boyfriend. My favorite part about this cheesy holiday is that you get to dress up all fancy! That's why I put together a few outfits to give you some inspiration. I'm also very excited to announce that I collaborated with Lindseyvee, this adorable Etsy shop based out of California. She makes these amazing hand stamped cuff bracelets that go with any outfit. Dress them up, dress them down, and they still look amazing. See how I incorporated those into my outfits below.
Besides Christmas, my birthday is my second favorite holiday! I mean a full day dedicated to me? What's not to love. Birthday's are a big deal in my house and we always celebrate with a fun dinner, family time, and of course presents! So what's on my birthday wishlist? This was sort of hard to come up with. You see I'm turning... twenty.. four! Holy crap, I'm 24 and yet I still have the birthday wishlist of a 12-year-old. Not that I care, it's my birthday and I'll play with all the toys if I want to!! That being said, let's get to the fun part.
Christmas break is slowly coming to an end. I've got to pack up and head back down south to get back to reality. Even though it was an amazing vacation and it gave me some time to relax and recollect my thoughts, it's (sadly) time to go back to work. Christmas wasn't cheap y'all! I hate leaving my family, it always makes me super sad, but I know that I'll be home in just a few more weeks for my birthday! However, I am super happy that it snowed before I left because Oliver was able to experience his first snow fall! I mean, how cute is he? I figured I should start my year off with another round of Links I Love, so here it goes!
Is it just me or is, "this year flew by," the most annoying and over used phrase on New Year's Eve. This year did not go any faster or slower than the year before, but yet here we are thinking that time flew by quicker than the year before. Two-thousand sixteen has been an okay year for me. I moved into my own apartment, I adopted a husky pup, and I got a new car. However, there has been a lot of loss this year too. It's been a tough year, for a lot of reasons, but loss of loved ones has been the toughest part of it all. Especially for my Manassas Park family. Although it's been a rough time, time doesn't stop. Which means it's time to look forward to the new year and all of the hopes that it may bring. It's that time of the year again when you make some resolutions for youself for this upcoming year and what you want to accomplish. I've got big plans for 2017, and I can't wait to share them with you all.
There are some Christmas traditions that people over look sometimes. There's some really fun and childlike activities that will even put a smile on an adult's face. One of those activities is putting together a gingerbread house. I mean come on, it's putting together a sugar filled candy house? What's not to love? You get to play with candy!! I also know that I wasn't the only one who saw that Starbucks released their own version of a gingerbread house this year. I was too excited to see that cute little kit one winter morning when I was getting my coffee. That's when Mama Katz and I decided that this was a must-have item this holiday season.

"So, I guess we are who we are for a lot of reasons. And maybe we'll never know most of them. But if we don't have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them." - Stephen Chbosky, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower
