New Years with La Marca Prosecco








So lets start with the obvious, well at least what I think is obvious! I got a new camera for Christmas! I had been using my Dad's camera for the longest time. It wasn't a DSLR so I couldn't get different lenses to achieve that "blurry" effect. I got the Canon T3i which was extremely hard to find even though there are newer models out. I had read such good reviews on it even over the newer versions which is why I chose it and then I got the Canon f1.8 lens (thanks Dan!). So anyways, I'm just learning and experimenting with it and if anyone has any suggestions pleaseeee share!

Moving on to this amazing sparkling wine! I'm sure everyone has fun plans for New Years Eve. It's so much fun to dress up, get together with friends, and set a fancy table so I was extremely excited when La Marca Prosecco reached out to me and wanted to send me this amazing holiday set. What's a New Year without wine, right? They were unbelievably generous! Not only does it have an amazing taste, the bottle and packaging is so nice. You can buy La Marca Prosecco HERE, HERE, & I'm sure many more places!

Splurge vs. Steal

So this may be one of my favorite posts to date! You can't always splurge on everything.... I mean unless your rich or famous or both but for us normal people, we have to pick and choose our battles. I tend to splurge on the classic items- things that aren't too trendy and are going to last for a while. Some examples are a good purse, pair of shoes, etc. so this is going to show you some easy ways to "steal" popular looks.  I'm hoping to do these more often because this is genuinely fun for me and a good resource! I hope you guys enjoy as much I as did making it! I'll link each item at the bottom if you'd like to purchase!

Life Update

So this post is extremely special because I'm finally able to announce that I got a new job and started it this past Wednesday!! This is going to be my first "big girl" job. I waited so long to spill the beans because it's literally a dream job and I just wanted to make sure that everything would pan out. I'm going to be working with Navaco Industries as their social media person (I don't know what my exact title is because it covers kinda a wide scope of tasks) but basically I'll be posting on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, starting a new mens blog and anything else that may come about in the future. I'll also be looking at new ways to market their brands as well as some other things but I don't want to share everything just yet! All you need to know is I'm so excited to start this new adventure! I have my own little cubicle which my mom and I started shopping for yesterday so I'm going to share the few things I got yesterday as well as my outfit post. I hope everyone is having a great weekend! Happy Sunday! (all details at end)

P.S. If you like the Abercrombie & Fitch perfume, Fierce, aka the one that makes their store smell like it does then I would highly recommend the Mahogany Teakwood candle from Bath and Body (shown below). We are talking the closest match I've ever smelled in my life! I wanted to get a lotion but they only had the Mahogany Woods (a men's lotion) but it still smells delicious.

*Does anyone else enjoy men's colognes and fragrances like a million times more than women's or is it just me??

Braided Crown Pictorial


So as you guys have probably noticed, I've been completed obsessed with braids. It's all because of this girl I follow, Amber Fillerup Clark, who has the most amazing hair & blog. Literally all day I am sitting at work or while driving thinking of different hairstyles I can do while incorporating braids. So today before work I took my first stab at a pictorial and a braided crown. I'm a little disappointed because either I didn't section off enough hair or my hair isn't long enough to make a nice think crown but I still think it turned out cute and was worth a shot! 



Relatively easy to follow right?
