Go to Florida I was able to shop in store I haven't shopped in a long time. Which was nice and dangerous. I'm happy to say I was able to knock a lot of things off my wishlist that I have been wanting for a long time. Like boyfriend jeans, Fox sweater, fur vest and a long cardigan vest.  I still have a few things on my wishlist but they are going to have to wait for now.

Over all I went 133 days before I broke my shoe ban and 77 days with out new clothes.

Skinny Kicks From American Eagle~15.99
White Gem Earring From On Style 200 Czech Republic Koruny(9.78 Dollars)
White Slip on Shoe From New Yorker~ 4.95 Euro(6.67 Dollars)

Hello Everyone. This is my last Florida post. Since this is the last outfit from my trip. I have tons of food pictures. If you would like to see a post of everything I ate. Then let me know and I will do a post on it. On this day it was in the low 50's. So that meant long sleeve. Which I didn't pack any. So I was happy I picked up this pink long sleeve from under armor. The week before. Like I really need another pink long sleeve. Also when I saw this graphic t-shirt at Victoria Secret I just to get it. Since the quote is from mean girls and it so me. Since it got pink on it. 

On this 10th in Florida. My husband meet up with some old co-workers for lunch. Then for dinner we meet up with my best friend Janet. We ate at the rainforest cafe. Which wasn't the best restaurant to catch up with old friend but we all had a great time. 

Top Left Corner~ November 7th, 2014, bluesky gel polish color in hot Pop pink. Ring Finger is Jamberry cup of tea.
Top Right Corner~November 9th, 2014 Nails inc. magnetic polish Kensington palace 082
Bottom Left Corner~November 9th, 2014  Emma - easy UV - polish dark ocean 28 Ring Finger is Jamberry Sunday Brunch
Bottom Right Corner~ November 27, 2014 Covergirl Outlast Stay Brilliant in 220 and O.P.I. Only Gold for Me 

This month I was lucky to get 2 free sample of Jamberry.  Toria's Treasure Chest  and  Framed Frosting are Jamberry consultant and they sent me some sample of Jamberry to try out. My first time putting on the Jamberry I messed up. So they didn't last long on my nails. The second time I did the Jamberry. They last me 2 weeks. Which was my whole Florida trip.  Which was super nice.  Jamberry are super easy to use. All you need is a blow dryer and some time. The last 2 weeks or more. They are super easy to take off. They cost 15 dollars. Which you get multiple use out of them. Which is super great unlike the Sally Hansen nail stripes.  I so see myself ordering some of these in my future.  

Since I was going to Florida this month I decide to paint my toenails. Do to I knew I was going to wear open toe shoe. Just a heads up. Next month is going to be filled with a lot of Christmas manicure. I picked up some nail decals from Born Pretty Store and can't wait to use them.

It was a cute movie. I couldn't believe how much is cost to see a movie. It was 20 dollars a piece for are tickets but it was all good. Due to we don't go to the movie a lot. 
 After the movies. We went by the water again and got some outfit photo's. Which I have had this green skirt for over a year and this was the first time. I have worn it. I'm so happy I finally decide to wear it. Plus what a prefect place to wear it. After we took some photo's. We went and pick up Oma from work. That way we could go get dinner. 
As we were walking back to Oma's apartment. Her friend was waiting on her. My husband was having fun snapping photo's. He got a great shot of Oma and her friend together. After he got that photo. Oma and her friend told me to join in. So I squeezed between them. 

I never realized how many features my Oma and me have. She say its are German root. Also Oma friends in German to. They both love hearing about how much Germany has change since they have been here last. The last time my Oma was here was in 1997. We are trying to get her to come visit us one day over here.

I'm happy that I got to bust out some skirt that I haven't gotten to wear here in Germany. Like this grey stripe skirt. I brought this skirt in August of this year and it had been sitting in my closet.

Fresh Face

J Crew Chambray Dress From The Recycle
Colorful Necklace From CR~3.99
Ugg Brown Boots Gift From Hubby From DSW

 Hello Everyone, On Friday I went and got my hair trimmed up. Which my hair feel so much better now. Today I'm back with another item from the recycling center. I picked this dress up back in July from there. This is the second time I have worn it. The first time I worn it was with a pair of coach shoe in the summertime. You can call me a bad blogger for not getting picture of it then.

I made sure I got picture of this dress today. So I guess you  can say I made up for it. I'm sure you will see this dress a lot around here this fall and winter time.  On another note most women would say black tight are a staple for them. For me white tights are my staple and go to tight.

To give the sweater some shape. I just add this skinny belt with rhinestone on it.  

November is Diabetes Awareness Month. So I'm wearing this cardigan because it has grey in to honor the cause.  My mom, My MIL, Grandma and a few friend all have this.  In December 2007 I almost lost my mom to diabetes.  I will never forget this day. It was 3am in the morning and I got a call from my dad. Say you need to come home. The Dr's don't know if your mom going to make it. After  I hang the phone up. I called my mother in law up and told her what was going on. Mind you I was crying like blood Mary. That I woke my husband up.  That morning he went to work and they told him to go home. I didn't even brother trying to go in to work that day. When my husband got home from work. We hop on the computer and book our flight to go from Germany to Michigan. 

I had friends come and watch Priscilla(my dog) and stay at my house. Then the next morning we were off to Michigan. The first thing we did was go to the hospital. My mom end up being in a diabetes coma for 3 week. Also she had a stroke as well. I'm so happy that my mom made it out of this. I'm also happy that she has manger to get her sugar under control. 

Diabetes is not anything to mess around with. So please get your self check out for it.  A couple sign you might have it our.
