Best of 2013


2013 was a HUGE year for me & quite amazing. I traveled to Italy with my family, my mom got married and I was her maid of honor. Her beautiful wedding brought two wonderful families together and I now have a step father and 3 wonderful step brothers and many new aunts, uncles, cousins and the list goes (yes, Italian family).

I also started a new job at the ABC affiliate TV station and gained many new friends and colleagues as well as learned more than I ever thought I could in less than a year working for Lin Media.

Looking into 2014, most people want “more” or “better”, however 2013 is going to be hard to top so I will settle with, “just as amazing!”

‘Tis the Season to *Shine*

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Wanted to share a fun photo shoot I did with the same friend that did my makeup in my last post. I had this new sequined skirt and she helped me style it! xo Here’s to a great 2014

Here’s to 2012

Hope you all had a Merry Christmas and  all your holiday wishes came true.  Christmas is the perfect time to wrap up a wonderful year and enjoy your family & friends. New Year’s is the time to celebrate a brand new start and of course, throw a huge bash.  It is also a time for crazy risqué fashion that would otherwise be inappropriate.  From glittery eyes to skin-tight dresses, any thing goes on New Years Eve.
