Favorites of 2013

I am not one to look back on things, looking back seems silly to me, I would rather look forward to new and exciting things! However, this little blog of mine I love looking back at, I enjoy going to see what was going on a year ago or even a month ago! I was so blessed and lucky to enjoy so many things in 2013 I decided to post my favorite blog post from each month of 2013! 

This would definitely be the home tour I did herehere and here!

Easy! I am still 100% obsessed with this Pink & Leather outfit! But I also loved my first vlog tutorial on big sexy curls! 

My favorite but not-so-favorite post is when I was in Charlotte Magazine for a spring fashion shoot! But another month with a runner-up would be Ball Gowns & Bow Ties 2013!

LOVE this list of questions I found from someones blog and I did with me and the fiancĂ©... How To Make Your Man Sweat!

May was full of amazing outfit posts, seriously all my favorites are in May! 
May Flowers was my favorite of all, not to mention I think it took the cake for my readers most favorite outfit also! 

BLOG FEST 2013! So easy! I got to meet two of my favorite bloggers and we had one amazing weekend!!

I was traveling a lot so not so many posts in July but I really love my 
Charlotte Favorites post or my first recipe post- Black Bean Corn Salsa!

I traveled 2,896 miles and blogged all about it! 

This month has another tie! 
One would be one of my favorite outfits, This is My #OOTD! Another would be when I was able to attend Charlotte Fashion Week!

October was a really busy month and lots of exciting events and happenings but without a doubt booking our venue and picking out wedding date wins!

I didn't even have to scroll through posts to know my favorite for November, when Emily & I opened the H&M Charlotte

When I picked out my Wedding Dress, duh!

Link one of y'alls favorite posts from your blog from 2013 in the comments so I can see what some of y'alls favorites are! I love reading something that someone else is super excited about! 

Cheers to 2014!


Cat Woman

Shirt: Madison/ Leggings: Daily Chic/ Shoes: Sam & Libby for Target
Earrings: c/o Jewel Box & here/ Lips: Maybelline Fuchsia Fever #140

I feel like Cat Woman in this outfit, I wore it for my birthday this year and loved it! I bought these amazing Sam & Libby for Target heels a few weeks back and have been trying to find anything to wear them with! When I found these Ice Bloom earrings from Jewel Box I knew they were meant to be with these heels! I am so obsessed with the earrings and heels, they are just so holiday and NYE appropriate! 


Christmas Loot

I debated for awhile if I should write a post about what I received for Christmas or not. After reading some of my favorite blogs and watching some fav YouTubers, I really liked seeing what they got! So here it is, what I got for Christmas!

I finally got the J. Crew Downtown Field jacket, I have wanted this jacket for awhile but I just couldn't being myself to buy it for myself! Thanks mama!!

After my MK watch broke a few months ago I was dying for a more neutral and  everyday watch, when I laid my eyes on this one I knew it had to be mine! I also got some pretty new Lily and Laura bracelets! 

I have been really searching high and low for some new leopard flats, I have a pair from Old Navy but they're very flimsy and "cute." I really wanted some I could dress up and that were comfy, but structured! I seriously spent hours online looking for the perfect pair, I wanted a pair from Nine West and they were sold out nationwide! I found these Ivanka Trump Carla flats and put them on my list! They are very stunning shoes if you ask me! 

I also got the Gap scarf in the picture above that I had been eye-balling for awhile! It is so comfy and warm!

I got a few gift cards, Sephora, Nordstrom and McDonals's (I get one every year from "my dad" to get months on months of Diet Cokes!)

I got an amazing canvas print from a family friend of me and the fiancĂ© from our engagement party! I haven't decided where to put it yet but I love it! 

I also got the usual, Bath & Body Works lotions, nail polish, fuzzy socks and wine. I actually got some money to pay some some medical bills that have been haunting me, thank you Santa! 

This Christmas was amazing, but it's not over yet! I'm heading down to Wilmington tonight to see Jeremy's family and exchange presents with them! 

What did y'all get for Christmas?

5 on Friday

1. This weekend in Christmas with my family since I have to work on Christmas day. This will be the first Christmas of my entire lifetime I haven't been with my mom and sister, I'm sad but I know my job is one for the books. I literally would laugh in any other managers face who asked me to work 1 of 6 on Christmas day, but this job I gladly would. I can't imagine spending Christmas in a hospital as a child, I hope I can make a difference in their day! 

2. Speaking of going home, I'm so excited!!!! Everyone will be at my moms house this weekend and she has so graciously basically "moved" Christmas to this Saturday for me! Not to mention I will be getting to spend time with my Sister, she really means a lot to me and I feel like I finally am getting to be at a great relationship place with her. I cherish my time with her and I can't wait for the family madness that will happen this weekend involving her! 

3. I've been wearing some great outfits lately, basically out of comfort and laziness is what makes them so great...

Leggings: My Fiore Boutique

Sweater: Old Navy (aka THE comfiest sweatshirt everrrrr)

4. My mom got prettttyyyy tipsy Monday night and told us her thoughts on underage girls getting drunk in college, emphasis on the underage and my sister! Hilarious! 

5. How perfect are there earrings? I'm thinking a must for the wedding day!
