My Favorite Present I GAVE

The thing I love most about Christmas is finding the absolute perfect present for each of my friends and family members. This year, my family and I said we weren't going to exchange gifts. All of my sisters and I are going to spend a day together getting mani/pedis instead. So, although we said no gifts, I still wanted to get my mom something special.

This was my outfit for Christmas dinner. A polished sweater and sparkly jewelry is my favorite combination for winter because you can look grown up and professional while still showing off your favorite blingy jewelry. The necklace I'm wearing in this photo is from target. I also wore rings and bracelets to add even more sparkle to the outfit. I love an outfit that I can wear as much jewelry as I feel like. A plain, neutral sweater is the perfect canvas to adorn with as many jewels as you please! The rest of my outfit was skinny jeans and my new ugg boots :)

Here is what I got for Christmas this year. I really wanted a new pair of Ugg boots since they are perfect for walking around campus or anywhere during winter. The boots were my main present and then I got a few other smaller ones. I also bought a few things for myself for Christmas and also to reward myself after a semester of hard work! ;)

I haven't posted on my blog in what feels like forever! But I am a senior in college and needed to focus a bit more on my classes so my blog had to come second :(
However, I am very proud of myself and what I accomplished this semester:
School is so important to me and I am so happy with what I've done throughout my (almost) four years at Alvernia University. I cannot believe that next semester will be my last but I'm so excited to see what will come after it!

Another reason why I didn't post sooner was CHRISTMAS! My house was crazy busy this year; with both sides of our family coming to our house for Christmas dinner.
I have also been catching up with friends who are home for winter break and doing all kinds of fun stuff such as ugly sweater parties! ;)
PLUS, all my sisters and I have been home together for the first time in a long time so we have been hanging out together non-stop. I love it!

I am going to share more about what I have been up to and what will be happening for me when I get some time to take some pictures :)
