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!?

Cheetah Brown sweater

I was really excited about this sweater when I saw it on Amazon!  I love to wear browns and this has a cheetah block which gives it a little depth.  It’s a lighter weight knit and feels comfortable on. It looks like it would be itchy, but it’s not.  I am wearing a small, but I think that it’s a little large on me. Sadly, I’m probably going to return it because it’s too big, but I really like it other than that.

Color Block Sweater

I’m a fan of the color block sweaters! I’ve been eyeing them, trying to figure out what color options I thought were the best for me.  I finally decided on the blues.  This one is extra cute because it has bell sleeves!  The sweater material is soft and loose feeling.  I ordered a small and it fit true to size. It’s meant to be oversized.  This is a fun sweater that you can dress up or dress down. It made for a great opportunity to wear my over the knees boots!

This is the first group of photos I took using my new selfie lighting ring and tripod! It was really easy to use!

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.

Batwings!!!

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″.

Buffalo plaid

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!!

Hair dryer brush

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!
