After two weeks of holidays, it sure doesn't feel like Friday, but I'm happy it's here! Here's a hodge podge of some things going on this week:
I finally broke down and bought new makeup this week (thanks, Jennie, for the gift card for Christmas!). I haven't bought new makeup since before our wedding. Yikes. I'm a big Bobbi Brown fan, so I went with several different things including my favorite gel eyeliner and face wash.
That, my friends, is what's called a great mail day!
In other news, we applied for tickets to the Inaugural Ball (yes, the one Barack and Michelle will be attending). Fingers crossed we get tickets. I would love to hang out with Michelle for the night :) I tried on my old pageant dress to wear to the ball in the off chance that we get tickets, and to my amazement, it still fits!
Moving on...I guess I'm on a Michael Kors kick here lately. I think all his pieces are just beautiful and timeless. I had been looking for flat brown boots and a brown crossbody bag for a while (I love the crossbody bags for traveling). And I wanted the boots and bag to match, which seemed next to impossible. So, when I finally found what I liked, my mom got me both for Christmas!
Anyone else like wearing black and brown together?

And I found this Michael Kors sweater in Denver last year and have worn it A LOT this winter. It's super warm and comfy.

I'm also on a mission to find a new watch. I had a Skagen one that I liked, but one of the rhinestones came loose inside the face, and it's going to cost as much to fix it as the watch is worth. The problem is...I can't find a replacement that I like! I want something on the smaller side, no rhinestones, two-toned, and it has to be stainless steel since my skin is so sensitive to metals. Any ideas!? I kind of like this one, but I want to try it on in a store and not order it online.
Also on an unrelated note, my suitcase of 13 years finally gave out, and I new new luggage. I want a hard-sided one. Any recommendations? And I'm totally going to get another obnoxious pattern like my suitcase above so it's easy to find in baggage claim! No one ever has purple plaid!
