Ready for the cold!!

I had the most fun this weekend.  I lucked out and got to go to the Blake Shelton Concert at Choctaw Casino with my dear friends and family! It was one of the best concerts I’ve ever gone to.  He interacts with the crowd like we’re all at a party in his backyard.  He was so engaging, and of course his music is amazing!! I hope he comes back again next year and I can go again!!

I’ve been eyeing this fur-lined puffer coat all winter because I LOVE coats and this one is super cute!  It’s down filled and really warm. It finally went on sale, so I got it in white.  I hope I get a reason to wear it soon.  It doesn’t get extremely cold in winter, but if it even gets slightly cool, I’ll be wearing this out and about!! The fur comes separately, so you can wear it with or without the fur hoodie!

(I probably need to put make up on when I take these pictures, so ignore that for me!! I usually don’t take pictures with my face in them so I don’t have to wear make up!)

Grid Pattern Sweater

I was so excited about this sweater that I pulled it right out of the package and put it on, so there are a few wrinkles.   Now that I have it on, I’m not 100% sold on it.  I love the feel of the sweater. It’s really soft. What I’m not sure of is the fit on me. I was thinking it would be more of a cowl neck, but it’s really more of a turtle neck.  The length is perfect.  It’s even a little longer in the back.  What do you think?  Should I keep it or return it!?

Color Block Sweater 2

This is the second color block sweater I got from Amazon.  I was expecting not to like this much, because I don’t love over sized sweaters on me, but the length of this sweater makes up for that.  The sweater material is so soft.  I don’t think it’s going to be very warm, so it will be best on a cool day.   I love the colors on this one.  The light blue paired with the orange is really striking together!  I will definitely get my money’s worth out of this one!!

Marcy Utility Workout Bench

My husband prefers to work out at home, so we have turned one of the rooms in our house into a home gym.  He needed a work out bench and some weights so he could do some additional things that don’t include our machine.  We bought the Marcy Utility Workout Bench, but it came unassembled.  We were supposed to assemble it together, but I was alone on Saturday and decided to give it a try.  I put a couple of pieces on upside down and had to go back and fix it, but even with that it took me about 40 minutes.

I don’t have any wrenches or tools either, so I had to use some random tools that came with other things I have bought over the year.  I’m pretty sure real tools would make it much easier to put it together and I could have done it faster.

I really love this bench. I may even have to use it myself if I ever decide I want to work out at home!!

Frayed sweater

Ever since I saw these frayed sweaters, I’ve been wanting one.  I finally found one for a good price on Amazon, so I went ahead and got it.  This one gets bonus points for having a leopard print, but it comes in various other color options.  I am going to enjoy this over the next few months of the light winter we have in Texas!

Tripod and lighting ring

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.

Gray Leopard Print Sweater

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!!

New Year’s Eve

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!!

Cheetah Rocks

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!

Sparkle and Shine on New Year’s Eve

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.
