little joys from the week...

Hi Ocean Dreamers!

I hope you are getting excited for the long Thanksgiving weekend - I am!
My family and I actually already celebrated Thanksgiving early 
(on Sunday) due to our crazy schedules. 
Now I'm kicking back and totally relaxing as well as doing
a few fun things with my Mom and Grandma.

What are you up to this long weekend?

There have been a few things that I've been loving and 
I thought I would do a little joys from the week post...
it's been a while since I've done my joyful post! ;)

I got a pedi and mani this week. 
I decided on sparkly silver nail polish!
 I saw Breaking Dawn and loved it!!
SPOIILERS: I thought they did a really good job with this movie. I loved seeing Bella and Edward grow up and bit and Bella make a decision to keep the baby even though she knows she will die. Edward shows more of his imperfect side, which is nice for a change, lol. He's still amazing of course. Jacob also never ceases to amaze me with his strong qualities and his willingness to sacrifice his tribe to save Bella.

My favorite parts in the movie?
Obviously the wedding scene. The raw emotions and nervousness shown on Bella's face were beautiful. I also loved the honeymoon...the location was gorgeous and the love scene was crazy sexy too. And the ending?! All I can say is WOW and I can't wait to see Bella as a vampire in the next film. Her eyes were gorgeous and I can't get over baby Renesmee in the movie. She's beautiful!! The book played Renesmee off kind of creepy in my opinion so it was nice to see the film make her appear more lovely.
Can't wait for Breaking Dawn Part II!!!!
I just bought my first Black Friday goodies.
I have to admit it was for myself.
I couldn't help myself! Lol.
Anyone else loving the color block fashion elements
that have come out lately?
The above dress is only $20 at Ruche and 
the below dress was only $15!

The sequel to Matched arrived 
in my mailbox, aka Crossed!
I'll be reading this book this weekend. Yay!

Today I'll be wrapping presents. 
I'm hoping to wrap some gifts like this picture, courtesy of my friend Pinterest.
I'm obsessed with the following 
Katy Perry music video:

I actually had Katy Perry tickets (really good ones) for today!! But...I sold them because I'm not in California right now. :( So instead I'm enjoying Katy's music videos. I love this one because the story that Katy portrays throughout the video is totally unlike the story I thought of when I heard the song. 
Be sure to watch the ending scene to see what I mean. 

Okay this is getting long! 
I'll be back on Thursday to wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving!!
Stay tuned for a fab giveaway too!


  1. Ya know what we said a few days ago, that I could have bought those tickets from you, too and we would have gone...LOL haha, either way I love this song!!!! Even though it's quite sad.

  2. That first dress is soooooo cute! I want! And I still need to see Breaking dawn, like asap!

  3. Yeah, I like the color block style too. Those dresses are precious!

  4. I love that color polish! And this reminds me I need to read Matched -you know, in all the free time I have ;-) Have a lovely Thanksgiving, my beautiful friend!

  5. I love the sparkly polish!
