Bad Blogger

You all, 2014 has been FABULOUS--full of surprises, blessings, hard times, and lots of laughter! But, after closing on our dream home YESTERDAY (yay!!), getting ready for Christmas, and taking on new job responsibilities; I am whooped. 

This pretty much sums it up--


So I will giving myself the rest of the year off from blogging. It is a chance to reset and get my creative juices flowing again. I have had the BEST time blogging this year, and making friends with readers from all over the world. Thank you so much for being apart of this journey with me! I can't wait to get back at it in 2015!!

Happy Holidays
Love you all

Fashionably Late To The Party








{Dress: Loft (sold out online, check in store!)} {Boots: Gianni Bini Similar} {Sunnies: Aldo}
{Belt: Thrifted Splurge/Save} {Clutch: Body Central LOVE/Save}
{Watch: c/o Daniel Wellington 15% off with code holiday_fashionblingandothergirlythings Dec. 31st}

Fashionistas! It is so good to be back--I had the most wonderful time in Mexico, but missed blogging a ton :) I feel so out of the loop--what's new in Blogland?!

I can't wait to share with you all the fun we had and the adventures we went on in Mexico--so come back Wednesday to read all about it!

In today's look--I feel a little late to the party, but that is just means I am fashionably late right?! Roll with me here people. This dress was EVERYWHERE a few months ago--and although I loved it from the start--my wallet hated the price tag. Fast forward to this past Friday--I snagged it on sale and in my size for $17. Yes, $17--so you know it was so coming home with me.

I wore it out with my in-laws and hubs last night when we went and saw A Christmas Carol in Cleveland. And, let me tell you, this dress was worth the wait.
Feels good to be back

Stuffing the Stockings

STOCKING STUFFERS


Last day of work before I head out to Cancun on Sunday--and I am so worthless--can't concentrate on a darn thing. I have been so slacking on my Christmas shopping too--so, in case you are in the same boat as me--I made a fun list of easy and affordable stocking stuffers for the loved ones on your list! Just click on each one to see where to buy them :)

P.S. You can get the watch listed above, and any other Daniel Wellington purchase for 15% off now through December 31st with the promo code holiday_fashionblingandothergirlythings. **Only directly on their website**

I will be taking all next week off while I am on vaca. So, you fashionistas have a fabulous week!!!

These are My Confessions

Y'all it has been a good long while since I have gotten any confessions off my chest, and with all the craziness that is my life these days--there is plenty to tell!

Like how this perfectly describes my life if you exchange the word weddings for babies--



And, how my husband and I have fought (more than I would like to admit) over hiring movers, for the move that will take place in the middle of WINTER, but he's all--


I have seriously been trying to save money because of said move, and I have been doing an OK job--


But, #thestruggleisreal --


Plus, we leave on vaca Sunday to go to Cancun, and I was all pumped up to eat healthy for the last month and kill it in my bikini, but--


And after washing my IPhone in the laundry, I realized why I got rid of my Droid in the first place--


But, heck--I am headed to Cancun, I have an IPhone on order, and we move into our dream home in less than a month! So life is good, even if it might make me a little nutty at times :)

Geek Chic and an Express Giveaway, O My!






 {Glasses: c/o Firmoo} {Vest: Groopdealz save 15% with code CYBERMONDAY15 thru 12/1}
{Pants: Forever21 Identical} {Boots: Target
{Watch: c/o Daniel Wellington 15% with code holiday_fashionblingandothergirlythings}

I have a confession--I am blind as a bat! Without my contacts or glasses on--I can't see a clock from a foot away. I wear my contacts 99%, but every now and then I want to rock the geek chic of my glasses. So I was really thrilled when Firmoo asked me to review a pair of their eye-wear.

When they arrived I was really scared they would be too small (I have a super large head ha I am not joking guys!), but they fit awesome, and the frames were the size I had hoped! They are super high quality and you literally cannot beat the price. I also really liked the fact that they are durable, but not heavy (and don't give me headache wearing them, like some other glasses have done)--if that makes sense! Plus, they are such a fabulous accessory to any outfit. I highly recommend checking them out :)

Yay!! And, I am also so excited to be teaming up with a group of FABULOUS bloggers to give away a $650 Express Gift Card!! Who doesn't need that around the holidays?! Make sure you use the rafflecopter and enter below!
