Actually I’ve been back in L.A. for just a little over 2 weeks now but oh my goodness so much has happened since then. When the house woke up on Thursday one of the puppies that lives here with us woke up paralyzed. You can read more about that here; HELP LILY WALK AGAIN! She is such a precious little puppy and this is so sad. She needs 24/7 care now which is hard to manage for all of us since we all are so busy. Which brings me to my next thing that has been sucking up most of my time; job hunting. Let me tell you it’s no joke. It’s hard to find a place in the fashion industry that doesn’t require 1000+ years of experience or something wild like that. I’ll find something though. I’m also not limiting myself on just this industry, I’ll take anything right now! Beggars can’t be choosers, that rent is still due. And anyway, if I don’t end up liking it I can always keep looking for something new. I’m only 23, I don’t have to have it all figured out right? But on to more exciting things;
I’ve added a bunch of new stuff to my Etsy shop; Extra Sassy
Just some more cute accessories! I have 3 more things that I want to get added before the weekend is over, I’m just working on perfecting them. Quality is important to me. A lot of the stuff I made a while ago I just haven’t added it yet because everything lasts for a day, I want to make sure it can last longer!
Okay, so can you believe it’s 2015? And, we’re two days into it?! Time truly flies but then crawls at the same time. I don’t understand. But anyway I had a great New Years Eve this year. Last year it snowed so bad in Iowa that I ended up just staying home and falling asleep well before midnight. It’s okay though I made up for it this year! A lot of people asked why I chose to stay in Iowa for NYE rather than being in L.A. and honestly it’s because it’s more fun. L.A. is so expensive and wanna be exclusive that I would rather be in Iowa. And, L.A. people get a little scary when it comes to intense celebrations. I didn’t know what I wanted to wear at first but then went with something that wasn’t too serious but still made a major splash. It also helped that I was the tallest person in every bar I went into and I had a huge top knot. Whatever, I live for the applause.
These are seriously my favorite leggings ever. They have side mesh panels that make them a bit more interesting than just regular black leggings. And, they are thicker than regular leggings. I hate when things stretch and become somewhat transparent. It’s just not a good look.
I got this jacket for Christmas! I had never heard of the store Cato before but now I’m a bit obsessed. One had just opened in Iowa and the lady told me they originated in Alabama but are only as far west as Colorado. Which sucks, I wish they were in California too. The price point is awesome and the sales are unreal. Look for one around where you live for sure! The gold necklace I paired with it was also from Cato. I really like it the only issue is that it sits a bit high around my neck but that’s not the biggest deal.
A couple of Kim K selfies for Instagram and I was ready for the night out! I had a great time with friends and on New Years Day I slept in for a while and awoke to my mother making breakfast. Ideal situation if you ask me!
