Christmas Party #1

Our first two Christmas parties have been a success! My outfit from the second one was not worth blogging about because I wore sweats. It was very casual and it was a looonnngggg day. I looked pretty terrible to be honest. Our first party was with my moms family that we don't get to see as much as we'd like to. It's always nice to visit and catch up with them. It reminds me why I love my family so much! Spending time with them always makes my heart smile so big! That's really whenever I spend time with any of my family... I wish we could all get together more often, but I know that everyone is SO busy and we all do the best we can.  So back to my outfit...

I bought this shirt at TJ Maxx earlier this season and I absolutely LOVE it. This is probably one of my favorite shirts right now. I find myself pulling it out of my closet often. It is so comfortable and cute and very festive. I love wearing it with this gold chunky necklace, but it's also perfect for layering as well. It looks so cute under sweaters!
Shirt: Lauren Ralph Lauren via TJ Maxx
Necklace: Call it Spring
Jeans: Forever 21
Boots: Gift from my boyfriend
Watch: Michael Kors
For this look I kept my eyes pretty neutral and used a deep red on my lips. It looks really good with this shirt and I love the color for winter. I've been really loving NYX lipsticks lately. I've bought like 4 new ones because I just can't get enough! I'm wearing the extra creamy lipstick in "Snow White".

Our last Christmas party is on Christmas Eve and I will definitely be blogging about that one when the time comes because I bought the PERFECT dress! I can't wait to wear it and show it off! AND Christmas Eve is my birthday! Woooohooo! 

Hope y'all are all having a great holiday season so far!

Time to relax

Now that finals are FINALLY over my roommates and I headed to the beach for a mini getaway weekend. We can feel the relaxation hit and the stress from finals drift away.
This was my view for a whole week
And finally this is my view
This is what I've been waiting for! Can't wait to just sit and do NOTHING. 
When I get back next week I'll have more beauty related things to post. But hey who can't say this view isn't beautiful? 
Anyways I'm super excited for the holiday festivities next week. I'll be posting makeup and outfits soon! 

Now for a whole lotta nothing.

Finals Week

It's finals week and I'm already on my third cup of coffee of the day! I'm taking a quick study break before my brain goes into accounting overload to give a quick update. I hope everyone is having a great holiday season so far! I can't wait until finals are over so I can do nothing but enjoy the holidays and the people around me. I'm also happy to say that I am DONE with Christmas shopping! It feels good to be done early so I'm not freaking out 2 days before Christmas scrambling around to find those last minute gifts. I did a lot of online shopping this year, and surprisingly I loved all of it! It was super easy and I found some great things at some great prices. What have y'all found so far? 
Annndddddd break time over. Gotta get back on the study grind.

Have a great week!
