I’ve always struggled with two main issues for my blog photos. One problem is with getting light in my pictures. My house is SO dark, so my pictures are always a little too dark. The second issue is I don’t have anyone following me around with a camera and I’m usually by myself when I try on clothes or decide I want to take a picture for my blog. I think I found a solution to both of those things!! I ran across this lighting with tripod and remote control on the deal of the day this week, so I went ahead and got it. I’ve put it together and I’m letting it charge now. Fingers crossed that this is the answer to my problems!! I bought a few more things, so I’ll be trying it out soon.

Hi! I’m Courtney and I’m a habitual weigher. If I pass by a scale, I weigh myself. I know that if I weigh a certain weight at night, I can almost tell you to the decimal, what I will weigh the next morning.
Well, I’ve been on a weight loss journey for about 5 1/2 months and I’ve lost a little over 30 lbs. I’ve been monitoring this weight loss with a scale I have had for years, and all it did was tell me what I weigh. I found out there are scales that do so much more, so I had to kick up my monitoring a little by getting a new scale that does more stuff. I can look at my weight, my BMI and SOOO much more. It’s really cool because it talks to my phone, so I no longer have to even manually track my weight. I’ve used it for a few days now and I’m totally excited about it. The only thing I’ve noticed is that this scale weighs about a pound heavier. Until I get rid of the other scale, I’m pretty sure I’m going to be weighing myself on both of them every day! I know…it’s a little crazy, but that’s me!!
It’s New Year’s Eve and we are headed to the casino for a fun-filled week. Tonight we will go to a party, then to the ZZ Top Concert. Tomorrow, we get to go to a special brunch with my sister-in-law. I’m sure we will find some time to gamble and play slots around that busy schedule. We want to start the year off winning!! (Don’t we all!!)
I already feel like a winner, as I was pleasantly surprised by this gray leopard print sweater. It fits so perfectly and is a cozy soft sweater material. I’m planning on wearing this to the casino this weekend, but I’m pretty sure it’s going to become a staple in my wardrobe!! They have lots of other color options and even some other prints. I may have to load up on these, because this is the perfect sweater to wear to work or with jeans! Dress it up or dress it down! I’m wearing a size small. The price is right, too!! It’s under $20!!

I got another sparkly tank top as an option for New Year’s Eve. I like the way this fits a lot, but I might be too cold in this, even in the casino. The back of this is just plain black, so if I wear it with a sweater or something, it could work. I got the small in this shirt. It also comes in other color options.
I also got these faux leather leggings, but I don’t think I would pair these two together other than to just try it on. The leggings feel really strange, like plastic or something. They are a little tight, but will probably stretch if I wear them. They hide all the bad stuff, so that’s a bonus to these leggings!! I’ll be set if someone has a Grease Party! Lol! I got the medium in the leggings.
I’m leaning towards the leggings with my over the shoulder sparkly shirt for New Year’s Eve, but I’m going to keep this shirt, because you never know when you’ll need something sparkly!!
I love the cheetah shirt that I got from Amazon!! It’s the perfect running around town shirt. I paired it with a black vest since it was a little cool outside. It’s long enough to wear with leggings and cute with jeans with the front tuck-in. I am wearing a small and I’m considering getting some of the other color options in this shirt. There is currently a 15% coupon, but no telling how long that will last!

What’s everyone doing for New Year’s Eve? We will be at the casino for the Roaring Twenties Party including a concert by ZZ Top!! I think I’ll be wearing a little sparkle and shine to the party! I love this over the shoulder sequined shirt!! This is a size Small and fits pretty well. It comes in other color options, too. I thought it would have more sequins, but when it’s on you really don’t need any more!! I won’t be wearing these pants because they’re too big, but I might wear the booties.
I’m totally loving the batwing look. This sweater is so cute. It comes in several color options. I love the sweater material and will be wearing this every chance I get. This is a size small.
BTW, the belt I have on in the second picture is pretty awesome, too! It comes with three more belts, so there are lots of options. It’s a stretchy material in the middle. I’m only wearing this one since these pants are too big, but it can be worn to help style your outfit, too! Mine is a sized 26″-32″.
This has been the year of the Buffalo!! Buffalo Plaid that is!!! I had planned on getting an awesome Christmas Card Photo this year, so I bought myself this cute shirt. I bought Alan and the dog cute shirts to match, too. It was going to be the perfect card photo. The only problem is that I never got around to taking the picture! Oh well! There’s always next year!!

I have A LOT of hair and it drives me nuts when I try to get ready. I can’t let it air dry, because it looks like I have a perm when it dries. It’s not a cute perm; it’s a flat out mess. I have spent so much time drying my hair, then straightening it. If I am going out I have to dry, straighten and then curl. It’s just so time consuming, so I usually just wear it in a ponytail.
On a whim, I bought a hair dryer brush. I had one before and the bristles were so small that it didn’t work with my thick hair, but I wanted to give it another try. I’m sure glad I did. I was able to dry my hair today and didn’t have to straighten it afterwards! I highly recommend this dryer brush if you have thick curly hair!

Another fun concert night at Choctaw for Alan’s birthday weekend! Charlie Daniels Band was great! It’s hard to believe he’s 83!! He put on a fun show and engaged with the audience. Travis Tritt was also on fire!! We had such a great time!!
Alan wore the buffalo plaid shirt that he said made him look like he was wearing a table cloth. We were supposed to be taking Christmas Card photos in it, but we never got around to taking them. I didn’t want to be all matchy matchy at the concert, so I wore my khaki knotted back sweater.
