Best of 2015
Best Lipsticks for Dark Skin

I’m baaaaaaaaack! Happy New Year everyone, I hope 2016 is off to a good start. Today I start work again so I am not thrilled, I had the best vacation and I really hope it would last just a little bit longer. My trip to California was a success, I had to much fun exploring Southern Cali and I cannot wait to go back. I took tons of pics that I will share with you this month. I don’t have any major 2016 goals, but I do want to take a more laid back approach to blogging. My goal is 2-3 times per week, I want to focus on bringing quality content to this space and not worry about quantity. In order to fully enjoy this hobby I need to do it at a pace that allows me to do other things.

One of the highlight of my Cali trip or should I say of 2015 was to meet with some of my favorite blogger friends. As soon as I made up my mind about the trip, I made sure to contact them to let the know I would be in the area. Thankfully Caryl was visiting family this time of year so I got to meet with Gina, Caryl and Noelle for the first time. Let me tell you they are as sweet, witty, fun in person as they are on their blogs. We had the best time, I don’t even remember what I ate for lunch that day or how many drinks I had.

We were totally obnoxious bloggers and took a zillion pictures outside the restaurant. The valet guy wanted to bring our rental while we took our pics, but I told him this wasn’t going to be a quick 5 minutes thing. Duh.. we had to document our outfits, Caryl’s sweet husband Matt is the perfect blogger husband and is the man behind the group shots. I was so happy to see Gina in a skirt and I hope to influence her into wearing them more wink wink. If you’re wondering Caryl‘s hair is even more glorious in person, I made sure to touch it. Noelle is as sweet, kind and classic as I expected her to be. Honestly these friendships are worth more to me than anything else about blogging. Caryl, Gina and Noelle did their recaps so it’s fun to read it from all the different perspectives.

This is getting lengthy so let me wrap it up, I’ve been totally disconnected so there’s no new “Pick of the Week” I am still in love with that belt. #HowIFall is live so go link-up. Thank you so much for reading.
