Glitter and Glow

Here is my New Year's Eve outfit inspired by a look from a very old Sept 2011 issue of Vogue:

This sequin dress is actually a skirt and a top set. I wore the skirt portion as part of my prom dress from high school graduation. It was a very high quality set so I kept it all these years….

Top & Bottom - From Turkey
Trench - Andrew Marc
Scarf - TJ Maxx
Necklace - Baublebar
Boots - J Crew

New Year's Eve 2014:
We had yet another fun night spending with our good friends at their house for the 4th year in a row. The kids look forward to the big sleep over the entire year….

Crowning glory

This was my outfit on Tuesday inspired by this photo which I am not sure where I saved it from:

Beret, Sweater, Pants - Forever 21
Boots - Steve Madden
Purse - DKNY

After spending all day Monday in bed being sick, I was able to join the world on Tuesday.
We started with haircut for my son then his swim team practice followed by lunch at the mall and free skating at the ice rink and ended with my daughter's gymnastics class…
These faux leather bottoms have been great for cold weather and sitting around the ice rink. They really keep you warm…

Leather Channel

Sunday's outfit was inspired by Oct 2013 issue of Lucky Magazine….

I re-created the combo with my faux leather full skirt and the very very old blue sweater…
High heeled boots would have looked much better but I had too much walking that day for those so flat tan ones that also keep my feet warm were more suitable.

My mom got me this spiked tiara headband, because I will always be her princess! :)

Sweater - Guess
Blouse - TJ maxx
Skirt - Thread Show
Boots - Shoedazzle
Purse - Target
Headband - BCBG

We kicked off the 2nd week of kids winter break with a full day of activities starting with taking the girls to see the movie 'Annie' followed by ice skating and then Korean BBQ dinner where the boys joined us after watching football...

When you wish upon a star

Christmas Day's outfit was inspired by the 'Late Afternoon' blog:
 The red pants gave the festive vibe and the gold sequin trim of my chiffon shirt gave just the enough bling...

Hat, Sweater - Forever 21
Blouse - Asos
Pants - Kohl's
Heels - Steve Madden

5:45 am was when we were woken up by our little ones….

Kids get one gift each from Santa and it comes under their own tree…
My daughter got the 'Barbie Glam Camper' and my son got a set of  Charger player mini figures and field by Oya….

After breakfast they move on to the presents under our big tree which are presents from us….

He got a huge wall decal of 'Phillip Rivers' for his room…. 

And a new field goal post from Daddy…. 

Hex bug fishies that swim in the water….

After all the presents were opened and I cooked my dishes we got dressed and left for my parents house...

These were all the presents waiting for them under Grandparent's tree...

 Can you guess the theme of his presents? All sports and Chargers related. I should have taken photo of all his gifts grouped together as it was at least 10 Chargers items...

Only my mom would get me these crazy leggings. They will perfect for Comic Con!

 My new shoes from my secret santa in the family which was my brother in law's Dad….
Shoes were picked by my sister of course!

We were so impressed with this gorgeous white leather Jacket my step dad picked for my mom!

 I loved this sign for my lil sis but then again it really applies to all 3 of us….

 They got me this cutest owl beanie from BCBG….

 Our Turkish friends joined us later in the afternoon and they brought this hoodie for my son which matched their son's hoodie...

It was a wonderful Christmas…. 

Bitter Sweet without my Dad but he is in my thoughts and in my heart literally every day. Seriously not a day goes by without thinking of him… 
 This was last year's Christmas Morning...
