Good evening readers! Here it is, finally. I went to Las Vegas, NV New Year’s week. Let me start with saying, Vegas is definitely a place you go if you want to experience a completely different world. It’s exactly what you would think of when you go to Vegas. Showgirls everywhere, arcade game noises coming from the millions of slot machines throughout every single hotel, restaurant, and bar, and a stampede of people of all ages, trashed. Las Vegas is like an arcade for twenty one year olds all the way up to ninety one year olds. It is a playground for adults.
Here is my trip in photos! I highly recommend checking out Fremont St. It is more of the old Vegas and it is fantastic!
While visiting, my boyfriend and I also checked out the ski resort on the outskirts of Vegas. It had a BEAUTIFUL view. However, not much snow…
I hope you guys enjoyed this reading. And if you haven’t been to Vegas, I recommend you book a flight!
Hello readers!!! I hope all of you had fantastic holidays and happy New Year to you all. I know that it has been since November since my last post. However, I was missing for a great reason. As some of you may know, I was finishing up my degree in December. That being said, I was an extremely busy gal. In fact, I literally went two months without a day off. I kid you not. It was insane! My life consisted of school, internship, and work. My stress level was at an all time high and I didn’t think I would make it out alive. Fortunately, I did. And because I went through all of that stress, I am stronger for it. I now have my degree in Fashion Design and Merchandising!
I learned a lot from my internship and got to work with a very talented jewelry designer/maker! It was exciting. At school I was responsible for writing numerous speeches for my last term. Let me just say that writing and delivering speeches is not my forte. However, I came out of there a better speaker. Thank you Mr. Wilds.
While I regret not blogging through December, I succeeded in finishing several goals. I would like to announce that I am back to my blog and I can’t wait to post more about what I’ve been up to. I am currently on a plane back to Nashville from Las Vegas! Yes, I needed a vacation reward. Stay tuned for photos from my trip and more!
Thank you all for reading!
Hello readers!!! Happy Thanksgiving to you all! I hope you spent the day with your loved ones and lots of food. I know I did. This was the first Thanksgiving I’ve hosted and it turned out really well. The only dish I messed up was the yams. However, they were still tasty. Just a little more liquidy than usual! Here is my day in pictures!
I am thankful for so many things this year. Here’s to name a few:
1.) I have an amazingly supportive and loving family. And although they live on the opposite end of the country, I still get to communicate with them.
2.) I’m thankful for my amazing boyfriend. Whom without, I’d be very lonely and not have as many adventures under my belt. He is my one and only. ❤
3.) I'm thankful for my sweet fur babies. They are always there to comfort me and/or play with me. Not to mention they're super cute.
4.) I'm thankful for my job. Times are hard as far as finding a job and I'm lucky to have one. Especially one that doesn't require me to work on holidays.
5.) I'm thankful for the roof over my head and the food in my belly.
6.) I'm thankful that I am about to graduate. I can't believe I am about be done with school!
7.) I'm thankful for you guys! I'm so happy to have all of you read my blog. I'm so new to blogging but all of your comments really mean a lot.
Thank you all for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of Turkey Day!!!! 🙂
Hi everyone!!! I hope you all had a fun and safe Halloween weekend!
Whether you stayed in and passed out candy to cute little Elsa’s and Ninja Turtles or you went out in a skirt way too short as a naughty school girl or (if you’re a male) a Spartan, I’m sure many of you got into some fun! I however had an early Halloween on Thursday and got to wear a costume to my Internship. My Halloween weekend consisted of a migraine and fever. Needless to say, I don’t have any cool or scary Halloween stories to tell. But, I’m glad I got to participate in wearing a costume to my internship!
Can you guess what I was?
Yep! A devil.
The wig is from Target, as well as the devil ears. This is the kind of costume you get when you shop for it last minute…
What did you all dress up as? Any spooky stories? Would love to hear them!!!!
Hi everyone! I just want to say, I’m so very sorry I have been M.I.A. For a while! As some of you know, I’ve started my internship and I am still working for Clinique as well as going to school. Needless to say, I’ve been a very busy gal!
I will be posting this week and updating you on my new internship adventure! I’m so very excited to be embarking on this journey!
Hope everyone is doing well!
Happy fall y’all!
A lot of you know me as someone who consumes a lot of latte’s, cappuccino’s, and the occasional good ol’ cup of Joe. Well, being a college student requires you to be wise with your money. Being wise with your money, to me, means save every penny you have to buy a grande Caramel Macchiato at the nearest Starbucks every day. Now, some of you, or a lot of you, may think this sounds silly. There are children starving all over the world, and I save every penny for my next latte. And you’re right, it is silly. But, that is me. Coffee addict.
That being said, I finally caved in and purchased a cheap Mr. Coffee Espresso Maker. I shoved my Kuerig in the back of my pantry, and I am officially saving money by making my own latte’s at home. A big step for me.
My first, and favorite drink to make is: Caramel Macchiato. Yum! This Caramel Macchiato Eight O’ Clock ground coffee is delicious for this kind of task! The French Vanilla syrup from Archer Farms and Torani Caramel sauce make it the perfect treat! The super cute fall to go cups are from Target.
And Voila!!! I am currently researching new latte’s to concoct. This adorable coffee cup was a birthday gift!
Having espresso at my finger tips during all times of the day means I will get a lot more done! Hello energy!
Last weekend was my birthday! (Rejoice, Libra’s) Although I was fighting a sinus cold, I managed to be able to celebrate my day of birth with the people I love most. As we all know, gifts are not the most important part of your special day. However, I also managed to score some great gifts as well. 🙂
My day was spent with relaxation and my best (fur) friends, Tyson and Chuck. ❤
Once the love of my life got home from class, he took me to get my favorite beverage at Starbucks and we went for a lovely drive. We ended our drive at an awesome restaurant where my fantastic Brother and my sister-in-law met us for dinner.
We shared great conversation and a pricey bottle of Rose. As we were finishing up, we look over and see Bernard Pollard of the Tennessee Titans eating dessert with his lady.
We then went home and had delicious cake! The next day I hung my fantastic gifts from my brother and sister-in-law!
Thank you to all who wished me a happy birthday! I had a fabulous day!
