Moody Picks: New Year’s Eve Sparkle

Are you all geared up and ready for New Year's Eve? For some people, figuring out where to welcome in the new year can be a headache and to others deciding how to spend the last few hours of 2015 can be daunting. However, I think most fashionista's would agree with me that trying to figure out what to wear during the final moments of the year is a bigger ordeal. 

I just made some impromptu plans to go out with a couple of friends for New Year’s Eve and now I’m freaking out a little because I have no idea what I’m going to wear.  As soon as I purchased my ticket for the party, I told myself that I needed to find something to wear that has lot of sparkles!  So I immediately started looking online for some ideas and inspiration.  Well, if you’re also in the same boat, then don’t worry because I’ve got you covered.  I’ve pulled together some cute dresses and pieces that you can wear to kiss 2015 goodbye. Oh and everything that I found is under $100 - I hope this helps!  Happy New Year sweet friends!

Moody Monday – Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale

Hi sweet friends! I hope that you guys had an absolutely wonderful Christmas with your families and that you all travel safely back home.  I went to my mom’s house for the Christmas break and had a nice quiet holiday with my loved ones. Spending time with my family is always a lovely time.  We ate traditional Jamaican dishes, watched a few basketball and football games on TV, took tons of pictures and of course spent some time doing a little shopping.  Most of the shopping we did was during the after-Christmas sales. We woke up bright and early to hit up Target and Kohl's to restock my Christmas wrapping supplies and some Christmas decorations for next year. 

And since I received a few gift cards and some money for Christmas, I immediately made plans to spend them on a few gifts for myself. If any of you have gift cards or extra cash burning a hole in your wallet like I did, then the Nordstrom Half-Yearly sale is the sale for you. The Half-Yearly Sale started on Dec. 26, 2015 and will end on Jan. 3, 2016 and it’s the best time to save big on those items you’ve had your eye on all year.  For instance, I’ve wanted red Hunter boots for the longest time, so I was able to snag a pair the day after Christmas. For those of you wanting to try any hot new trend, now’s the time to get a great deal.  Well, here are some of my favorite pieces from the sale.  Let me know what are some of your favorites and let me know what you bought, if anything.
