Hey everyone, good news! My new laptop has arrived, Adobe Photoshop has been restored onto my desktop, and blogging is back on the to-do list. There have been so many developments in my life of late that I can't wait to share with you in my next few posts. Also, I feel like the mini-break I took over the past two weeks of holiday partying really helped to rejuvenate and refresh my love of blogging.
The beginning of the new year is a fantastic opportunity to get a jumpstart on all of the resolutions that I made at various moments of the last year. My next post will be going into greater detail regarding the commitments I made last year and how I plan on achieving them in 2015.
For now, I'll just expound upon how grateful I am that the holidays have ended. Don't get me wrong-- Christmas and New Year's are great and all. However, my workplace was just chock-full of stressful situations, crazy customers, and upset coworkers. As soon as December 24th had ended, however, we were back in a winter wonderland of peaceful slacking.
In other news, the boyfriend and I have together vowed to eat healthier this year, a resolution we started by throwing out all of his unhealthy snacks (chips, chocolate, etc.) and replacing them with cleaner options, such as dried fruits and nuts. We also plan on cooking more at home together as opposed to the all-too-easy-but-expensive-and-unhealthy alternative of eating out.
Are there any resolutions that you are excited to begin this upcoming year?
In regard to this outfit, I have been steadily stockpiling various sales items from H&M during their post-holiday and end-of-season sales. Nothing I really need but all stuff I want-- the story of any shopaholic's life. First and foremost, I got this sheepskin-like cardigan for $20 and pleather pants for $15. Luckily I can write off my shopping splurging since I purchased them with a gift card given as a Christmas present. As well, I got this sweater from the Las Vegas Premium Outlets Banana Republic at a heavily discounted price ($18 down from $70) and this Topshop bag on Boxing Day.
