Seeing Stars: Personal Story

Sweater (similar HERE) more linked below |  White denim (The best white denim literally EVER) | 
similar Gold flats

 Happy Monday dolls! I got this star sweater on sale a few weeks ago and I've gotten so many compliments on it! I love adding pieces to my closet that just really put me in a good mood ... there is just something about stars that always makes me smile. 
I think it's because they make me think of my dad.

Not to be a debbie downer... but January is always a tough month for me. It is the month I lost my dad about five years ago and well the truth is -- it never gets easier. Grief is probably the toughest thing I have had to learn to deal with in my life and losing my dad... well, there. are. no. words. I often find myself up late at night, looking up at the stars wondering how my dad is? Where he is? Is he ok? Did he turn into a star? Is there a heaven? Is he having a good time there? So many questions... I have to laugh to keep myself from crying. Anyway-- this sweater made me smile when I found it because it just connects me with the feelings I have somehow ... that "somewhere out there" feeling. It is so hard to come to terms with someone existing in your life and then suddenly disappearing so just looking up at the stars, well, somehow that gets me through it.

For those wondering my dad passed away in 2013 from complications that originated with diabetes, leading to kidney failure and then dialysis... and then well your body sort of gives up on you after it goes through so much. My dad was a super wonderful man: smart, encouraging, wise, taught me so much, and always cheered me on. Truly my biggest cheerleader and most of my days are always tough without him < especially when I need advice > but the memories keep me going.

Just to clarify-- its not the material things. A sweater definitely doesn't bring my dad back but its the little things like stars ...that trigger my smile and make me feel like he is somewhere out there... or with me wherever I go. 

How do you cope with loss? Prayer? I use memories to get me through the tough days but if you have suggestions I am always open.

Thanks for reading beauties.

Best Shows To Watch On Netflix Right Now

If you're looking for me I am probably in my bed watching a show I am currently obsessed with on Netflix. Don't judge me but I have never watched "The Walking Dead," until now. I just started season 1 this week and I am already on season 4 = I CAN'T STOP. It's a very addictive show and honestly my favorite part of Netflix is that I can watch a show and not have to wait for commercials. Truly I don't even watch popular tv shows like "This Is Us," because I am too impatient to wait for the commercials to end or to wait for the next episode. HAHA -- so as a result I watch everything late! I get a lot of questions about my Netflix obsessions so I figured I would share MY LIST OF FAVES: (In no particular order)

10 Great Sweaters Under $50


 Shop The Look:

Red is truly my new favorite color. I have always loved it but the holidays always remind me of my red obsession. It's just a great pop of color and the good news with this sweater is that IF red isn't your fave -- it also comes in 10 OTHER COLORS! I love when I find something that has a color for everyone! This clutch has been a staple in my closet but it is on the pricey side so I linked a $45 dupe for it HERE and HERE.

Right now I am living my best life in sweaters and if you are on the hunt for some great ones <that are affordable> I have stocked up and linked the best of the best below. Cozy and comfy but best of all most under $30. With this "winter bomb cyclone" on the way... the only thing I want to do is cozy up on the couch and live life in sweaters! For the low cost I was really impressed by the quality of these sweaters. If you pick one up let me know what you think!
 My shopping goal in life = spend a little, get A LOT. :)

Raise your hand if you have ever fallen asleep with your makeup on! <Raises hand> Yup! Me too! I was a total Neutrogena wipes girl at the start of 2017 but they never REALLY made my face totally clean. I discovered Tatcha this year and it is a game changer / a little high priced but trust me when I say WORTH EVERY PENNY. I am in love with the cleanser!! It's a four step process and my face feels like butter in the morning. Plus the entire line was created and based on the Geisha of Japan! It's too legit.
