Another Year Gone



I hope everyone has a wonderful night of celebrating the New Year! I am so excited for 2011, it is a year where I hope to make changes in a lot of areas. I hope the year is better than 2010 and I hope yours is too!

Remember the Playground days



Shirt:Marshalls, Leggings: F21, Boots: Blowfish, Purse: Handbag Heaven

Can I just say again how much I love this purse. (Thanks Sis) Oh and she also gave me this shirt. My sister is awesome, not just because she gets me clothes, but because she's my best friend:-)
I'm so happy with all the time with my boyfriend, I don't want him to leave! Long distance is the worst. Today we stopped at this park, I love the swings. The best days were when we lived right next to a park when I was little. I would just walk out the house and there it was. Now I take my niece and nephew to the park occasionally, unfortunately it's not next door.

Ready for 2011

Today wasn't as cold as it has been for the past several weeks, but I still was like let's hurry up and finish taking this picture. I hope everyone had a great Christmas, mine was excellent. I am definitely ready for 2011, things will definitely be different this new year. Also  I'm so excited because I found a sequin skirt at a Jcrew Outlet that I'm so wearing New Year's Eve. Notice the sequins in this outfit, and the obsession with sequins continues, now if I could find a sequin blazer...

Oh and I found my camera thanks to my wonderful boyfriend:)

Discovering Old Things

f21: sweater & boots, jcrew: dress, headband: yellow elm

I don't know if you can tell that this dress is navy, but it is. Hopefully soon I can find this camera because it sure does take better pics than my phone. I haven't worn this dress in a long time for some reason, but it's a great dress. I remember I got this dress for like $30 a couple years of ago and you know how expensive Jcrew dresses can be. I'm trying to wear things I haven't worn in a while hence the reason why I wore this dress.
I can't believe it's almost Christmas! I won't be posting for a couple of days but I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!

Proud Army Girlfriend


I am so upset that I lost my camera:-( so until I find it or get a new one, I have to use my phone camera. In other news, these days I've been chilling with my boyfriend, I'm so happy he's finally back from all his training. While I was down there in Georgia, he got me this hoodie plus a sticker for my car (not shown haha).

A Classic



It is very unlikely I will own a Chanel bag, maybe I will I don't know, but I will have this similar amazing bag.  I love getting Christmas presents that I already know what it is. You should definitely check out this website Handbag Heaven.

A New Platform


I would have to say that these shoes are the highest pair of heels that I own. And I love them.

14 Weeks Later





It all felt so surreal, that the day had finally come and I was with The Boyfriend again. I'm still cheesing now as I write this.

Day 2 and I'm still Smiling

jeans:target, boots:kohls, sweater:gap, shirt:ny&co, belt:f21

Today was slightly warmer, but I still almost froze and decided to take a picture anyways. I'm just so happy to be with my boyfriend again, I don't care about the cold, okay maybe a I do:-)

14 weeks Later

dress: charlotte russe, cardigan: h&m, boots: blowfish
Okay, so ignore the fact that my legs blend in with the door and just focus on the dress:-P I love this dress. Today was the day I've been waiting for, my boyfriend graduates from AIT in the National Guard. It's been so long and difficult at times but now it's done:) Tomorrow is the final graduation, today was the Turning Blue ceremony. It was so cold today! I wish the ceremony was inside but no I about lost my toes in the bitter coldness. This dress probably wasn't the best choice to wear but who cares I had to look good for him.(Of course I layered up with tights,leggings, scarf,coat, & gloves). Tomorrow is suppose to be a little warmer so maybe a outfit picture outside.

A Rainy Day

 
dress and coat: ny&company, cardigan: aeropostale, handbag: coach


I've had this issue with wearing brown and black together. Yesterday, I finally did it and I actually like it together.  My sister was proud of me. I had a little help since this dress has the colors mixed together already, but then I threw on these dark brown shoes. I think I might start wearing this combination of colors more often.

If you Like to Shop online

I don't know if you know about this already, but I just discovered Ebates. It's probably because I just started shopping online more frequently, that I'm just finding out about this site. I still love going to the actual store front and trying on clothes, but it's kind of nice having something sent right to my house. If you do a lot of shopping online, do it through them and you'll get cash-back. Also for getting referrals you can win prizes or cash.  There is also coupons and other ways to save money.  Sounds like a good deal right? I think so, sign up here and start getting your own referrals.

The Adventures of Kylie and Kaylin




We head out to get sushi at a Korean buffet.
 There is a charge for leftovers per lb.
We stuff ourselves because we get to much food.
Lady interrupts us at dinner for a donation.
Lady makes a face at us because we don't have cash.
Another Lady asks us for a donation. 
We laugh throughout the whole meal while people stare at us.
We take pictures outside in the freezing cold. 

The End.

Goodbye Fall, Hello Winter


sweater:jcrew, dress & boots:f21, belt:charlotte russe, scarf:h&m


It's been so cold and windy lately, I know that Fall is now over. When I took this picture, I was freezing! I would really like for Summer to return. My friend and I went to a Korean buffet, where we stuffed ourselves with sushi and beef. It's a long story, but whenever I'm with Kylie its not going to be a dull evening, she's such a great friend. I just bought this belt and I love it. I bought it during the Black Friday weekend. I just love this whole outfit:-)

Almost There

Okay, I know I've changed the look of this blog multiple times, but I just change things until I'm completely satisfied. I am still not feeling my banner but I am almost there so bear with me.(-:

I had time on the hands today, so I went to Looklet to create a look. Love this website.

These are a few of my favorite things

Okay, it's just one of my new favorite things but I finally found the brown nail polish I've been looking for. It's by Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure. I bought the shades Commander in Chic and I Pink I Can. Check out the different shades (here) and maybe buy one yourself.

One Month Later and This is Just the Beginning

Wow, this month flew by really fast. This makes makes me really happy because it means only 2 weeks until I see T.J.! Okay well that's off the subject, but I just got excited(-:
There were definitely moments of temptation throughout this month. I so wanted Taco Bell several times, but I resisted. Also during the holiday, I did drink soda but either than that I did not drink soda. I think that this is a good start to me on the path of a healthier lifestyle. I definitely missed Taco Bell (my favorite place, can you tell?) but I didn't really miss all the other places. And I definitely saved some money. I didn't keep track of that, probably would have been a good idea, oh well. Oh, and about the exercising part...that was an epic fail. I only did something one day. I need some motivation to work out. Any ideas? Exercising is so important, I know, but it's no fun. Maybe I need to find a partner, we could motivate each other to get out there. I made a list of all the things I started during this month of fasting from fast food.
1. No fast food
2. Ate breakfast almost everyday
3. Starting drinking more water
4. Started to go to sleep earlier

I hope that I can continue to improve on all these things plus exercise. Maybe my fast has motivated you to make some changes toward a healthier you or maybe it hasn't, either way I feel better overall since I actually accomplished this goal.
