"Pretty faces on parade..."

Masquerade... This is our third year going to and I honestly count down the days...  It includes delish hor' dourves dancing and casino night.   We spent most of the night playing black jack and loving every minute of the experience.

Funny story... so I am a VERY picky eater and I will not eat something that freaks me out.. so usually the  hor' dourves are Margarita mashed potatoes, some oriental food and more amazingness  but this year it consisted of pate and olives (heck no), risotto balls (excuse me?) and fried pork belly (is this some kind of hot dog??)  so I start to freak out... because I have only had half a waffle all day and I want my dang mashed potatoes in a martini glass!!.  So I get all hangry  and poor Nick is trying everything to get me to eat because he knows I will just get worse.  He starts to bribe me to try a risotto ball... he says $1, then $5, then $20... (this takes about 10 minutes)  there was no way I was trying it... then he says "I will buy you a puppy... I'm serious"...   I look at him and make sure he is serious, and then I say " go grab me a ball"  and they were sooooo good!   So guess what!   I have a new food and I am getting a puppy!!!  I did tell him that I want a rain check on my puppy and that it is going to be a small dog that doesn't shed and he happily agreed.

Friday Five

Friday Five

1) Essie ballet slippers. Perfect not trying too hard kind of pale pink, it does take 3 good coats to get it looking pretty but it's worth it.
2) Loving this dry brush idea. You dry brush your entire body from your toes up, it helps to drain your lymphatic system which helps with cellulite and it gives you amazing looking skin.

3) Flatbread pesto chicken pizza. I can not get enough, it is amazing what real ingredients can do for flavor, hello fresh mozzarella....

4) Kleenex cool touch. These tissues are crazy and in my opinion worth every penny!!!! I am on my third cold of the season and these are so soothing.

5) Smart water.... Need I say more?

OOTD I kept my resolution!

So maybe I put my makeup on at my desk this morning but I am dressed, wearing heels and my hair is done... That is a step in the right direction that's for sure!

New Years Glam-resolutions

Here is a usual morning for me:
Alarm goes off at 8, I get up at 8:15, get my cereal and climb back into bed, set my alarm for 8:30 so I can take a nap... Force myself out of bed at 8:35. Pick out leggings and a sweater, throw on some boots, grab my make up bag and hop in the car to get to work by 9. Did you catch that? I am leaving the house in the same messy bun I threw my hair into after my shower and I don't have a stitch of make up on.

In this time of resolutions I have decided that I need to take more pride in my appearance so I am setting some goals.

1) No more messy bun to work!

2) Try to put make up on before work

3) Wear real pants...

4) Buy cuter pjs,sheets deserve better than the crap I am wearing to bed

5) Dry brush skin every day

6) Get 8 hours of sleep

7) Self tanner every other day

8) Polish my shoes.

9) Wax... It's worth it

10) Look better at the gym... Do your hair woman!

11) Wash my make up brushes way more ( I am too embarrassed to say how often I do it now)

To help me stick to this I am going to try and post OOTD's and before and after pictures for my dry brushing... apparently it gets rid of cellulite and hopefully others.  Fingers crossed I can stick to it!!!

Love you guys!!
