Happy new year! I am so excited for what this year will bring, hopefully more happiness than other negative stuff (2016 I am looking at you), here are 5 things that brought happiness to my life and the end of the year:
1. PATENT VINYL PANTS
Throughout the fall I wish I had these pants, I would look at other bloggers with envy because they were able to pull them off and I was to scared to buy them because I knew they were going to be a one occasion kind of thing and then feel insecure and throw them in the corner of my closet to never pull them out again. Oh but how wrong i was: I feel like a rockstar every time I wear these babes.
The only downside is that they make a squeaky noise every time you walk, but a tiny bit of oil or saliva will do.
The other downside is that if you happen to have either a baby food belly or period swollen or just a belly this pants will show it! because they shine to the moon and back which results in bumps being more obvious, but your booty looks great!
2. ASOS PETITE HIGH WAISTED CROPPED DENIM
I got this pants late November, I was taking advantage of my discount at ASOS for Black Friday. I have had these pants, but the regular ones, in my loves list for such a long time but had not come across to actually buying them, and then my nightmare: my size sold out! I was so mad that I had not buy them before! So I went back to look for something similar and there they were, but in petite and they had my size! I have always been scared of buying anything petite because they are usually too small for me in the arms and legs, which is pretty weird since I am only a 5’2. However, when I got this, they were perfect, a tad too small in the butt because I am a 25.5 inch waist and these are a 25, but I feel that was to be expected.
This is definitely the hat of the season, and if you are not wearing one this winter you are missing out. I love how cute and quite french they are. I have one in gray and another one in black, I think I might get a white one and a red.
I love how this beret look when you are wearing a leather jacket because it is such a good contrast between looking cute and looking like a bad ass with the leather jacket.
4. BURGUNDY NAIL POLISH
I love dark nails (and lips) during the fall/ winter season, and although this nail polish is not really that burgundy and more of a pinky purple I still really like the finish. This nail polish was a gift to me by acquittance so I have no idea where she got it, but still she choose the perfect shade that compliments my brown skin pretty well, I always have a hard time finding burgundies that look good because I have yellow undertones.
5. PEPPERMINT MOCHA STARBUCKS
This is all I drank during December, literal… This is probably the only thing I look forward during the Christmas season, besides buying and getting presents of course. I drink mine with soy milk because I can not take the regular milk, but I still love the whipped cream on top with the chocolate pieces. This drink literal makes me feel cozy and warm. It is definitely Christmas in a cup!
