Happy 4th of July! Can I get a HELL YEAH for the wonderful long┬áholiday weekend we’ve been enjoying?! Yes! I may be a little more excited about this long weekend this year than I should be, but, ya’ll…it’s been quite the week…the month actually! Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy being busy, but sometimes, a little rest and relaxation that comes with an extended weekend is just perfect.

Hey ya’ll. So, I always meant to do a regular “Instagram Round-Up” on a semi-weekly or even monthly basis, however, I’ve gotta be honest with you here – I just don’t think me life is interesting enough! ­čśë ┬áI see other bloggers do these type of round up posts and wow – their lives seem uber fabulous! Of course this isn’t necessarily true ┬áand this is me doing that “comparing yourself to other people thing (personal flaw), but for real though.

So, I could start this post just like a lot of other people might, saying how much I’ve changed as I’ve gotten older, how I’m not where I thought I’d be at this age and how I still have dreams I want achieve, all of which is true, but that’s not what this “birthday post” is going to be about this year. Instead, I’m going to talk about what I am thankful for and happy to have in my life after having been on this earth for 34 years so far.

I realize this might be a bit of an unusual picture to have in a post about New Years, starting things anew and motivating yourself for 2015, but come on – it’s a really cool gif!

Can you believe it’s already November? Wow. Thanksgiving and then….Christmas is rightaround the corner! Geez. While most of my month of October was spent preparing for and then moving to a new apartment, I did find time to discover a few favorites I thought I’d share with you. A few beauty items, a good read, a random thing or two and some great T.V. ┬á ┬á­čÖé

Happy Halloween! Can you believe October is already coming to an end today and that tomorrow is……the first day of November?! Wow. Although it’s not my it’s not my favorite holiday (that is Christmas!), I really do love Halloween. Taking a trip down memory lane and remembering how fun it was dressing up as a kid and going trick-or-treating in the neighborhood is kind of nostalgic. As a kid I was everything from Snow White to a dead prom queen for Halloween (I liked to keep it interesting). This year I decided not to dress up, although I kind of wish I had as many of my co-workers are ‘rockin’ some freakin’ AWESOME costumes…….

I think we all were affected and saddened by the news of Oscar de la Renta‘s passing. It’s truly a tragedy that such an amazing talent and an even more amazing person is no longer with us. Oscar (look at me acting like I knew him and we were on a “first name basis”! ) graced not only the fashion world, but the world in general, with such beauty and art. He also was a very wise man when it came to the true meaning and impact of fashion and style.

Friday Favorites vol. 6

A gorgeous night at Oktoberfest! See more here. 

 

Guys, I have to say, It’s been a long week. Between work during the day, social media consulting/blogging at night, battling a bit of a cold and packing up my apartment for my move next weekend, I’m exhausted. Although I’ve spent┬ámost of my weekend continuing to pack, I still was able to get a little relaxation in. However, during this week’s craziness, I was able to enjoy an evening at Tulsa Oktoberfest and it was fun! A nice breakaway and time with friends away from the craziness of the week.

Hope you all had a great week! Here’s what caught my eye on the inter webs this week.
