NYE sneak peek

This past weekend I started to take some pictures for my NYE looks.  Here is a sneak peek of my hair and makeup because I was really excited about my hair.  For once it actually came out the way I wanted it to!  Very happy moment for me.

Holiday party

I might actually be doing the same updo in the above picture for my Holiday Party today.  We have a party with work and it’s kind of fancy so I might do this.  Boyfriend is dressing in a suit and tie, I’m so very excited because one thing’s for sure, he definitely cleans up nice.


I get to see my blogger BFF tomorrow!  I’m so excited the day is finally here.  We did a gift exchange last year for Christmas and I’m so excited to do it again this year.  Especially because I’m really excited to give her my present.  I can’t say what it is though because she follows my blog, no need to spoil it!

Jord Watch

If you saw my post from earlier this week (here) Jord has partnered with me and they have a limited quantity of e-gift cards worth $25 each for the holidays! If you've had your eye on one of these lovely wood watches, be sure to enter to get in on the savings, tis the season! Entering is easy; click the link here – it will ask you for your email and your favorite JORD watch (so many to choose from) once you hit enter, your code will be emailed directly to you!


My fitness tracker came in!  I got the Jawbone UP24 in pink!  Here are links for a large (the size I bought), medium, and small.  They have really awesome deals.  The medium is the most expensive, probably because it's the most common size.  At least that's what I'm assuming.  It links up to an app.  It's a really simple tracker, but it doesn't look like your average fitness tracker.  It's not bulky at all and it's super comfortable, especially if you want to sleep with it.  It monitors the amount of hours you sleep and you can set it up to send you alerts.  The alerts will send a little vibration to the tracker.  I have mine set for every 45 minutes no activity to vibrate to remind me to get up and move.  I work in an office so it's extremely easy to forget to get up, especially if you have a major problem going on that forces you to stay in your cubicle and make constant phone calls.  Anywho, I'm really satisfied with this tracker!  It would be a great gift for that fit person in your life if you don't want to go overboard in budget!

*Update, I've seen this video on a bunch of people's 5 for Fridays.  If you are a blogger or just instagram fan you need to watch this.  I'm sorry but this is actually kind of true haha!
