2020

Happy New Year!!! 🌟

I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays and your year is ending/beginning on a good note. ✨💜 A new decade awaits! I really enjoyed 2019. 😄

Here is my New Year’s Eve outfit of the day! I wasn’t sure what to wear, so I simply wore a star headband, which adds an instant New Year’s Eve flair. Plus, a good ol’ pattern mix of the dress and the scarf.

Gazing into the unknown…I see Starbucks in my future…

Oh Starbucks, how I love thee. ❤️

I’m happy to begin the year with some epic books. I’ve been wanting to read these FOR SO LONG. They’re a spinoff of the Dear America series, only these are based on royalty throughout history:

I picked the Anastasia book to start off with, since I’m forever drawn to the Romanov story ❤️ (even though it’s terribly sad).

Lastly, I went on a crafting spree the final weekend of 2019 and made new jewelry: brooches, a ring, and necklaces!!! 💜💙💚 I’ve been wearing the necklaces frequently and I just love them!

Enjoy your New Year’s Eve!! I’m excited to watch Rockin’ New Year’s Eve at Times Square til’ midnight! 🎉

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!!!

I hope everyone has enjoyed these last few days of 2017. 🙂

It’s been, overall, a year of growth for me! I definitely am most grateful for landing my dream job this year as a graphic designer. I honestly think about it each day and feel much gratitude to have been blessed with such a job, and with great co-workers. ❤

The best thing I did this year was believe in myself. I told myself I deserved a wonderful job where I could utilize my degree and flourish, and I took a chance. Good things take time!

My artistic endeavors have also grown, as I tried my hand this past year at greeting cards, an art mug, and doing abstract paintings, which I plan to carry over into the upcoming year! I explored with my jewelry and have been regularly creating new digital illustrations. I’m thinking of dabbling into international shipping on Etsy (something I’ve been nervous to do, but I hear it’s not that difficult).

I’ve had this fuzzy tinsel sweater for YEARS! I only wear it once a year, and quite fittingly, I wear it on New Years Eve.

What do you think of the star headband? It came out nice, no? I love the glittery stars. Heck, I’m going to wear it again tomorrow for New Year’s Day.

This sweater photographs kind of funny in the sense that in some pictures it looks black, and others it looks navy blue…

I got my nails re-done! I’m so happy to be back to a sheer, neutral shade. I always end up missing natural-looking nails after I try a bolder color.

New Years Eve Night!

To celebrate and ring in the new year, my mom and I made some healthy smoothies; these are berry smoothies that I topped with raspberries and blackberries. SO GOOD.  I totally gave them their own photoshoot, haha!
