Good Bye 2014

Geometric Vest Cardigan Christmas Gift From Scribble(2014)
White Gem Earring From On Style 200 Czech Republic Koruny(9.78 Dollars)
 Black Wedge Uggs From DSW~69.98 

Happy Wednesday Everyone. Since I'm not doing anything for New Years eve. I decide to wear my new vest cardigan. Which I'm in love with. I so see myself remixing this cardigan like mad. Since it is new years eve. I have decide to share my new year resolution.  Which for the year I didn't have my new year resolution until the end of January. Which was to be more organize. I don't want to say I failed this but I didn't get 100% organized. Like I want to. I got 50% organize. Which is better then where I was standing in 2013.

So for 2015 my new years resolution is to go a year with out buying shoe or clothes.  I firgure if I can go 5 month without buying new clothes. Why not try a year. Plus this will give me a chance to finally wore some clothes that I still have tags on.  Also learn what my style is.

Some rule in this resolution are.  
1. Only shoe I can buy are a pair of black flats. Since my broke and they are a staple in my closet.
2. New running shoe. ONLY WHEN MINE WORE OUT
3. Clothes from the recycling center don't count. Do to they are free
4. Gift card and gift don't count.

Along with no clothes and shoe shopping. I'm also going to go on a no nail polish ban. Which I did good this year and only brought 2 new nail polish.  The reason for no new nail polish is. I have over 100 polish and maybe only use 20 of them. Which some have gone bad and I had to get rid of them.

I will still be doing my monthly spending recaps. Which my goal for this year. Is 50 dollars a month. That's to buy body products and stuff I need. 

As of today I'm sitting at 32 days with out getting new shoe.  I'm not sure If I should roll that over to the new year or just start fresh. Please let me know what you think.

Just a little Thank you

Hello Everyone. This is going to be a different post from my normal day post. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter. Then you know that my grandparent and my mom. Were in a bad car accident Friday evening at 6pm Michigan time. My dad call me at 12 am my time to let me know what had happen. At the time he didn't know all the details. Due to he just got the phone call from my cousin. Letting him know what had happen. My cousin just told my dad an 18 wheeler truck had hit them. So that what my dad had told my husband. Which that's what my husband had told me.

Yesterday morning I call my dad up and he had told me all the info he knew. Find out it wasn't an 18 wheeler that hit them. It was an F150 truck and it hit them twice.  My grandma was in the back seat of the car and wasn't affected in any way. My grandpa was driving the car and he hurt his back. My mom on the other hand wasn't so lucky. She has a broken arm, knee, whiplash and a hurt back. On top of all of that her blood sugar drop to 30. 

So the hospital is keeping my mom in the hospital to keep an eye on her. On top of getting in to the car accident. My mom had surgery the day before to get some deposit removed from her stomach. To get check out to see if it cancer or not. Which we won't find out if it is until after the holidays.  If you have been reading my blog for sometime now. You know my mom has gone thru a lot. God has truly has been on our side. 

I'm not writing this post for people to feel sorry for me or anything. I'm writing it to get this off my chest. Since this week has been a hard one for me. Not only have I had the car accident and my mom surgery. I have had test done myself for thing. Which I'm happy to say everything came out fine. Which make me super happy and blessed.

I'm writing this post. TO THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR WONDERFUL SUPPORT YOU HAVE GIVING ME. I can't thank you enough and let you know how much it mean to me.  You guys are the ones that help lift my spirits some with you kind words and comment. 
Today Christmas Items is this picture of My mom and me from 2010.

Glamorous Plaid

 Pink Ugg Boots From DSW~44.96

Happy Friday Everyone. So this morning I  decide that I want to wear my navy sweater tank. Since I haven't worn it since the summertime. I had no idea what I wanted to wear under it. Then I saw this plaid shirt in my closet and everything came together.  Minus the shoe. I didn't care for my pink uggs with this outfit. Which my husband didn't even take picture of my shoe. The funny thing is he didn't know that I didn't like them with the outfit. Over all I love how this outfit came together. 

I have no idea what I was doing in this photo but my husband calls it the blowing you nose pose.  Also on a sidenote I hope your not get sick of me wearing beanie/beret. They are truly my go to thing in the fall and winter time. Also there a must in Germany. With the cold weather.

Today Christmas item is my all time favorite Christmas song. I want a hippopotamus for Christmas. Not that many people have heard this song. I think it a midwest thing. I would listen to this song every Christmas in Michigan.
