New Year's Eve and More

This is my latest YouTube video about a cute New Year's Eve hairstyle I've wanted to try for a long time. It was very hot in L.A. the day I recorded this (in mid December) and the sun was reflecting into my eyes brightly. 

For New Year's I'm actually inside. I won't be out and about when the clock strikes twelve this year. I had the same story last year! Really, I'm looking forward to 2018 and all its good newness! There's something about a fresh start that cannot be beat!

I know it was just a couple days ago, but last time I posted, I was hinting about something personal and sparkly and what not. Well, now that we've told our parents, I can let you all know: I'm getting married!!! The conversations about it are getting heavy and kind of repetitive. It's dates and details all over the place. Eeeesh! It will be in January, in Los Angeles. I'll update you on it when we make the jump! Enjoy the video!

Denim and Stripes

The sun was shining high and I was having a chill moment the afternoon of this shoot. My only plan was to meet my awesome photographer for the shoot, shop and get coffee. It sounds so cliche' in Los Angeles to do these things, but it's the truth! I made no other plans on purpose. Sometimes I have to be conscious of booking fun time for myself, otherwise I get winded by my to-do list. That's no way to live. I've lived and learned this. On another note, I'm planning something to begin in January that is going to be very exciting for me and I hope you're inspired by it! I'll be updating you about it ASAP. Hint: It's personal, and involves sparkly jewelry!

Christmas Red

This past week I was becoming more a more excited to get these photos back from my photographer, as it is nearing Christmas and I wanted to share with you guys before then. I'm overly excited as I write this morning, settled in with my pink coffee mug and cell not far away. I hope you enjoy this whimsical look as much as I do! The F21 dress is older and before the shoot I'd worn it once about a year ago. I think the shoes can be unexpected for such an old-fashioned style of dress, but in this day and age, it works to run quick errands (hence, the one piece covers top and bottom and the sneakers make for easy maneuvering.) I'm off to grandma's to deliver her Christmas gift a little early.
