Winter Layers

I hope you all had a good weekend. My weekend was spent helping my friend throw his 22nd birthday party. I love parties, throwing them, going to them, and recovering from them. The party was a 1920s themed and I will post my some pictures soon. Also, this past weekend we finally got some snow but already it's melting. With this crazy weather constantly changing I've spent most of these past few months layering. I never put away any of my spring/summer dresses. I just long sleeved shirts and cardigans over all of them, so I can keep wearing them throughout the winter. Laying is my favorite thing to do in the winter.

Polka Dots on Mint

As I sit here writing this post and trying to recover from a bad cold I can't stop smiling while uploading these pictures. The day I took these was probably one of the best days I've had in a long while. I took these pictures on a Thursday and started the day with a very successful shopping trip where I acquired this little outfit. The minute I saw the color and polka dots, I knew I had to add this little beauty into my collection. I'm a sucker for polka dots. These booties were a nice surprise and very unexpected. As I was heading out of the dressing room I spotted these and knew they would be perfect for the dress. Never expected to find an entire ensemble in one trip. I wore this outfit to see my current obsession Conor Maynard in concert and then met up with friends for dinner and drinks. The concert was amazing and ending the night with one of my best friends was just the icing on the cake. I love days like that when everything seems to just go perfectly.

Finding Inspiration

Hope you all had a great weekend and are starting this week on a positive note. I'm finally getting back into the swing of things and really excited about posting on my little blog. One of the reasons I stopped posting was due to a lack of inspiration in all aspects of my life. I felt so lost and confused, not sure what my life was supposed to look like or what I wanted it to look like. I finally made the decision to change that by taking the time to enjoy each day, making new friends, and staying positive about what's in store for the new year. Now that I am feeling inspired again, I plan on posting a lot more this new year.

Happy New Year!

 Molasses pancakes as my first meal for 2013!
I wanted to wish you all a Happy New Year and start off my first post of the year with a look into what's going on with me. I know I haven't posted in a few months, but with moving back from Africa and trying to settle back into my life in New York, things have been a bit hectic. I am very excited about this new year and ready to for what 2013 has in store. This coming year I plan on sharing more food pictures with recipes and outfit posts. I hope you will continue to read! Happy 2013 everyone!

My new planner for 2013!

Dear Creatures Autumn 2012

It just hit me that the end of this week will bring us the official first day of Autumn. I am so excited, because Autumn is hands down my favorite time of year. I love the colors of the leaves as they change and layering up my outfits. Lately, to prepare for the upcoming cooling down I've been perusing many websites in order to plan my closet updates. Dear Creatures has really outdone themselves with their Autumn looks and these are just a few of my favorite pieces that I want to incorporate into my wardrobe. Are you all looking forward to the upcoming season. I am also looking forward to my return to the states and being back in New York City (24 more days to go and I will be back home)! Also, wanted to let you know I started a twitter, so it would be great if you all could follow me. Have a great week!

End of Summer and Freak Outs

It's been awhile since my last post, but things have been a bit overwhelming these last few weeks. I've been wanting to post, actually these pictures were taken ages ago for a post I had planned but I've completely forgotten about. Work has been extra busy with deadlines and reports. Also, I've started job hunting again since I will be back in the states in 5 weeks. Trying to figure out my next step in life is always a stressful thing for me to do. As days go by and October inches its way closer, the idea of heading back to New York unemployed and living off of my savings scares me. I know I'll eventually find something, but the thought of not finding a job that I will actually like freaks me out even more. I know I shouldn't be worrying and stressing out doesn't accomplish anything, but that's just how I'm wired.

Anyway, onto other things. Lately I've been looking forward to Autumn and planning my shopping list for the upcoming season. I've already marked a few items on some of my favorite sites to prepare me for October in New York. I can't wait till I am back in the city heading to my favorite coffee shop wrapped up in a warm cardigan. Summer heat and palm trees are nice, but I truly love that time of year when the leaves start to change and cool breezes take over. I'm a New England girl through and through and sure do love my Autumn's.

Work Trip (Part 3)

Today my post is heavy on nature and scenery. Since living in Africa, I haven't really had the chance to leave the city but during my work trip that's exactly what I did. These are the last set of pictures I will be posting, so I hope you like. These were taken during the three hour drive from one city to the next and from different views around Yamoussoukro. Today officially make it 4 months since I've been in Cote d'Ivoire, which means I only have 2 more months left and then back to New York. While I'm here I am enjoying the vast open spaces and random crocodiles hanging out in the middle of parks. Hope you all enjoy and have a great weekend!
