Blogging 101..

 
 
Yeah, so glad that 2012 is finally over and looking forward to 2013 with joy and faith that all things would work for my good. This is my 101 post hence the title; "blogging 101." I started blogging in March and after four or five months, I noticed that I had a pattern going with the number of posts I had each month so, I decided to go with the pattern and was excited to find out that it totalled as 101.
 
 
Indeed this has been a learning year for me and I really learnt a lot in every aspect of my life; spiritually, physically, academically, emotionally..just name it! I grew all rounded. I decided to pick three out of each months post in random order and I am particularly glad that the aim for which this blog was set up was met in the long run; now I have a very colorful closet and I'm glad to say that I'm happier too with my closet.
 
 
I'm using this opportunity to say thanks to all who stopped by my blog and left comments to let me know they stopped by. I wish you all the best in the new year and always. **Kisses**

Merry Christmas

Hi All, I am just signing in to wish you a merry Christmas. I pray you have a wonderful time with your family and close friends. Here, I am wearing a green color chiffon dress in line with the Christmas spirit and some neutral heels. I thought of wearing some red color shoes initially then decided to go with these nude heels. I was busy making sure everything looks nice on my Christmas tree when these pics were being taken.





The kids have been longing to know what kind of presents they got and they just keep asking questions on and on...hubby and I always tell our kids that Christmas gifts are from Dad and Mom because God provided for them. We do not believe in deceiving kids with all that Santa lie!



One of my friends dropped by last night with all these amazing balloon creation for the kids and these little penguins are my favorites. Some people are so creative! The kids were very very excited to get them and they popped a few of them already.








                          Thanks so much for reading and have a succesful and productive week.

Green, silver and black

I am back today to feature my Sunday outfit which just screams Christmas!!!! This is the most wonderful time of the year and it's even more amazing that we are having a white Christmas; beautiful white snow glistening in the sun. It's cold alright but nice all the same. I do not think I can have Christmas any other way. It just has to be white...:)

The colors in my outfit are black, grey (silver) and green and while the silver somewhat represents the glistening snow, my thrifted green suede jacket just sings Christmas; yes, it sings Christmas..:) **Oh the weather outside is frightful,
but the fire is so delightful
and since we've no place to go
Let it snow! let it snow!! let it snow!!!**

That was the song going through my head as I took these pictures; not necessarily a Christmas carol though...:)






Green suede blazer, silver brooch and silver color totes are thrift finds..




ouch!! where is the other leg...:)



There it is...:) like I said earlier in a previous post, I like to convert my summer dresses to winter gear. The dress in this post is a halter neck dress which I quickly threw a jacket over and with all the right warming undergarments, I was ready to go to church.



Church was fun today as usual and as we all gather together to celebrate Christmas, let's not forget that Christ's birth and death brought us all redemption. All we have to do is to get closer to God by giving him worship through songs and prayers and acknowledging that his son Jesus Christ died to redeem us from our sins. Have a wonderful Christmas everyone.

Brown tones...

Hi beautiful people of blogsville..I hope you are all enjoying your holiday shopping and taking advantage of all those numerous discounts out there. A word of caution though! Do not be carried
away by all the good deals so you don't end up shopping yourself  into a  coma..:) I know we ladies love to shop but like I always say; fashion is great but there are other things more important than fashion. Or in this instance shopping is great but there are other things more important than shopping. It's nice to give and receive gifts at Christmas but let's not forget the reason for the season. It's always nice to take a deep breath  at this time to reflect on the wonderful gift of salvation that Christ brought to this world.

Anyway, school is over and I am on vacation from work and enjoying the quality time I am spending with my family. Hubby is on vacation too and this even makes everything better. Also, I am done with my shopping and have everything all wrapped up and I am just ready to partttty...:)





I just wanted to sign in to say a quick hello on my blog and if you are reading at this time, I wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year in advance.




In this post, I am wearing a brown trouser suit which I decided to take from a formal look to a very casual one by using leopard prints. I have worn this leopard print blouse and shoe combo in a previous  post too and if you have gone through most of my posts, you'll know by now that I love animals prints.





My prints blouse was purchased from Tj Maxx years ago and I wear it alone to relax at home some times. My leopard prints pumps are Colin Stuart via Victoriassecret. The clutch is also from Tj Maxx.


Brrr...rrrr...**Shivering**It was so cold but I just had to brave the chilly temperature just to take these pictures. Keeping up with blog postings is so much fun...:)


 
 
Thanks so much for reading and please, let's not forget to continue to pray for the families of the victims of the shooting at Newton, Connecticut.
God bless you all.
