Merry Christmas

Happy Holidays friends! 

I have been so MIA from the blog, even though I know that thats not news but since it is the holidays I have been trying to take a serious break from social media. This has been a time to really spend with family and friends and just relax. I feel like these last few months have been so incredibly hectic that taking this whole week off has just been amazing. A "staycation" at its best. We had a wonderful Christmas filled with lots of food and love, I love having our families get together and spend quality time together. 

I hope that each and every one of you had a wonderful Christmas and that you get to ring in the New Year with those you love. 

I will be taking a break until the New Year from the blog, so I hope that every one has a safe and happy holiday! Thank you for following me throughout the year and I am positive that 2015 will be an amazing year! 

Much love



Happy Thursdsay friends! 

Last weekend, I had the chance to drive down to Jersey to see one of my bestest friends. Pinky is just one of those souls who gets me and even though she is so far away, she is someone who I can without fail always depend on. There aren't many words for the amount of love I have for that girl, I just love her with all of my heart! Also, Happy Birthday Pinky! Yesterday she turned 22, so lets send her all of the positive and loving vibes! I hope your day was magical! XO 

So, over the weekend we got to make a quick trip to NYC and boy was it BUSY. Those who know me, know that I loveeeee New York but New York over the holidays on a Saturday no less, is NOT for me. It was so so so so busy and full of people, in all the times I have been there I have never seen it like that, my anxiety was through the roof it was very claustrophobic. But alas, I have not lost my love for the city because I mean its my New York. Although it was super full and there were literally Santas on every single corner (thank you Santa Con) it was still nice to be back and see all of the big things I love seeing. 

It has been years since I had been to the Rockefeller Centre so seeing the tree was definitely special. But it was a "get in, take a picture and get the EFF out" kind of visit, haha there were just SO many people, I couldn't handle it! 

I have way more pictures on my DSLR that I will post soon! Thank you Pinky for the wonderful weekend and I hope you liked your surprise! Love you dearly and once again, Happy Birthday! 


ikea office haul

Okay, was it just me or was it extra hard to get out of bed this morning?! 
It's 7:12 am and it's STILL dark out. I'm going to blame that for my hitting of the snooze button ;) 

Over the weekend, my family and I went to Ikea to buy some stuff for my office (it's still majorly under construction) and boy did we buy a big haul! We got all of the necessities which is great, now I just need to get this office thing going! Before and after pictures will come of course! I haven't really decided a style I want to go with other then white and gold but it's slowly coming along! I figured I'd buy a turquoise shelf because A. turquoise goes with gold and B. I've gotta have some colour in there ;) 

Also, can I just kind of say that ikea is a wonderful, beautiful, HORRIBLE place? I mean I love how cheap everything is, it's great but being in there is like madness. My parents left after a while and only Brent and I were in there but Brent and I got lost from each other for HALF AN HOUR. His stupid phone died and we could not for the life of us find each other. I literally almost had a heart attack because I was pulling two big carts full of stuff and still needed to grab a few more items in the warehouse. I was stressed to say the least, thank god I called Gimena and she calmed me down because I probably would have had a break down. Ha! 

I hope that you all have a great day and somehow wake up, I'm on my second cup of coffee and finally don't feel like I'm a zombie (yay!)

just a thought

I am guilty, guilty, guilty of doing this. 

In a world where what everyone has is so shoved in your face (thank you Facebook & Instagram), it gets just a little difficult not to think "I wish I had that." I'm not saying I don't have anything because I obviously do but I feel like we're living in a society where the more you have means the better your life is. 

I can't say I compare my life to all the material things people may have, I think my main worries are women's hair. I am so damn jealous of all these girls beautiful thick long hair! I have very very thin hair, that in itself is the thief of joy. Haha but in all seriousness, I got the shitty end of the gene stick when it comes to hair. I am my mothers clone minus her thick hair, my sister on the other hand that lucky lucky girl has the LONGEST most beautiful hair and sometimes (only sometimes) I want to cut it all off. I'm so melodramatic I know. 

I completely veered off topic there... Anyways, what I am trying to say is yes that person may have the best fashion sense or the newest car but we need to sometimes take a step back, get off Facebook and instagram and look at what WE have. There is so much more to my life than just what I own, I am literally surrounded by love and an amazing group of family and friends. If I had to choose between all the money and crap in the world over my family there is no way I would trade the family I've got. 

Life is so beautiful, sometimes we have to take a step back and really take a good look at what really matters! 


Rabbit Rabbit

Rabbit, Rabbit and Happy December friends! 

I have taken it upon myself to always say Rabbit, Rabbit on the first of the month. (I know it's the second but lets pretend for now). Rumour has it, if you say Rabbit, Rabbit on the first of every month it's good luck. So for the the last three months I have said it and you know what? I can't really complain! My months have been pretty good lately. 

I can't believe we are on the last month of 2014, where has the time gone? It has been almost a year since I moved in with Brent and that to me is crazy! I have had a lot of growing up done this year, our business has become a "real" business, so that means I'm actually running a business... Which is terrifying! I moved in with Brent, we got engaged (which is also terrifyingly amazing) and I bought a new car. That's a lot to happen in a year and I am so super grateful. I could kiss 2014 on the cheeks for being so darn good to me. 

I am so excited for 2015, I have decided on my word for the year but thats for another blog post ;) and I just can't help but feel excited for life. I have to admit although 2014 was really good to me there have been some awful things to have happened and I have suffered through a lot of "down" days but I'm finishing it up with a positive outlook because I want to be the leading lady of my life. Sometimes I feel like I take a back seat in my own life and thats a load of crap. Why do I feel inferior to my own life, I should be kicking its ass and making the best of it and thats exactly what I plan to do. 

I only have one life so I am going to actually start living it, listen to me... I sound like a motivational speaker... HA! 

Well I hope that everyone finished off their last chapter of 2014 on a positive note! It's almost christmas, its almost time for family and great food and I am super excited! Let's think about all the blessings we have received this year and put the bad thoughts on a back burner. I know life can get a little difficult at times but lets be real here, it also shoves a lot of good in our faces if we just take the time to actually look at it. 

Have a happy December friends!
