In just a few days Christmas will arrive. I'm so excited that I'm in sunny CA spending time with my love. On Christmas day we will be going to church with BK's family and then will enjoy the rest of the day opening presents and celebrating Christ's birthday.
I've been doing small things around BK's apartment to make it a bit more festive. Part of Christmas for me is getting in the Christmas mood so I bought a few things to make BK's man cave into a holiday cave, lol.
blue ocean dreams tree on the end table.
BK really needed a new comforter. Don't tell anyone but he was using an old floral comforter so I took matters into my own hands and headed over to TJMaxx and this is what I came up with for under $100. I wanted it to be manly since it isn't "our place" yet but when we do have our own place I'll come up with a bed look that we both will like.
snow globe of the nativity scene and a small dish to place it in. Then I decided to buy some Hershey's kisses and put it around the nativity scene. There's something magical about snow globes. They also have been one of my favorite decorations. It's a small decor element that I think makes the table come alive with holiday gladness. :)
book, The Christmas Wedding by James Patterson. It's really a simple read and cute story. I need to finish it soon, Christmas is only 2 days away! But...I guess I can continue reading it after Christmas.
Love seeing these sunsets again. ;)
What are you doing to get ready for Christmas?

Whenever I go shopping on Melrose Avenue I know I'm going to spend at least $100 or more. There's just so many unique shops, vintage clothing, and more that I adore.
I'm only going to show you two items of clothing in this post that I purchased, but I'll be back with more pictures soon. I had fun on Photoshop with this collage and played around with the lighting and filters.
BCBG dress and it was originally priced at $150 when it was first released during the fall of 2010. The store I went to sold it to me for only $16! I love the details including the pleats and it fits me so well. It's made out of the type of material that "puffs" out at the bottom so you have an automatic bounce to it without having to wear tulle underneath.
The second item of clothing I bought was a pair of lace shorts. I love them and they are so super cute! I decided to pair them with a lacy black top and a pair of black leggings underneath for the winter time. Plus black is just very slimming overall paired with light colored shorts, in my opinion.

Sometimes I find myself getting so irritated with 1 small touch screens or small keypads. It takes me for forever to send a text or tweet and I wish I could do all of these things at once!
That's why I think investing in a phone like LG Double Play offered exclusively at T-Mobile would be ideal.
This phone comes with customizable touch screens, a 3.5 inch main display and a 2.0 inch sub display that you can use independently or work on them all together. Multi-task and have fun on Facebook, Twitter, and or wherever else you want to surf with this multi-purpose phone.
The LG DoublePlay™ comes with a super cool camera and video as well. It's easy to capture and share pictures and videos through text messaging, email or Facebook.
You can also enjoy a great number of messaging options, such as Cloud Tex and Group Text. This way you can send and receive texts from a PC and tablet more efficiently and quickly.
Love Droid features? LG DoublePlay™ features Android™ 2.3 (Gingerbread) that allows you to visit the fabulous (in my opinion,) Android Market™. I looove the Android Market! It's fun and easy to surf multiple sites with seven home screens and up to nine touchscreen shortcuts. Wow that's awesome!
Unlike other phones, the LG DoublePlay is ideal for multi-tasking and enjoying your social media platforms. The split QWERTY keyboard and touch screens make it super easy to hop around to all of your favorite apps, websites, texts, and more.
So Ocean Dreamers, I have some cell phone questions for you because it will be fun hearing your answers and my answers are below as well:
1.) How many text messages do you send a month?
I personally send about 250 or more...I love to text!
2.) How many hours (approximately) do you spend Social Networking on your phone each month?
Gosh I can't even count, I love social networking a little too much, lol!
3.) How would the new LG DoublePlay™ change the way you text and interact with your Social Networks (now that you can multi-task?)
This looks like a great phone - would be great to multi-task!!
Go check out The LG DoublePlay™ - it's a great phone that will keep you up to date on all of your social media platforms all at once! Don't you think this phone would be fab at changing the way you text and interacting on your SM platforms each month?!
I'd love to hear your thoughts on how much SM and texting you do on your phone. I do quite a bit and love tweeting and texting the most!

If you get the chance please head on over
to read my guest post on The Comeback Woman.
This is my first time telling
my story in detail about
my illness last year.
This was hard for me to write but if there
is any way I can encourage others who
have gone through challenging times then it's
more than worth it for me to share my story:

Have you checked out my pink wreath giveaway?
I hope you all had a lovely weekend! I did but time seems to be getting away from me and I can't believe I'll be headed to CA soon! This post is going to be a bit random, but just bear with me because I'm about to show you some pictures of some yummy food and fashionable items.
Here's what I've been up to the last few weeks as well as what I've bought. Yes, I know I shouldn't buy myself gifts before Christmas but I caved and found some black Friday goodies and then some. :)
Black Friday but this year I ventured out and boy did I have fun! I didn't really like Forever21's sales, but I snagged some fabulous deals at Aeropostale and Hollister where everything was at least 40% off or more!
fish tacos. You really can't see the fish in this picture but if you have never had fish tacos you've got to try them. They are sooo good!
BK's gifts that I will be bringing to CA with me. Yep, I already wrapped them and I will put them around our mini blue ocean dreams tree that I'm bringing with me to CA. :)
display a few other gifts I wrapped for him with a vintage tree that I bought as well as a tin with some pictures inside that I made for him from last year.
sushi mood lately (okay all of the time...) and this is one of my favorite rolls. It's a California roll with shrimp and spicy mayo on top. Just looking at it makes me hungry.
Juicy Couture purse, I found at TJ Maxx for a killer price. The purse below is a Makowsky purse and I got it off of Ebay. I was actually looking for this tie dye and leather purse for quite sometime!! I finally snagged it for a reasonable price of $40 used verses $250. I lover it.
gold tips. Pretty, right?
I won't be posting again until Friday because I'll be scurrying around like a crazy woman getting ready for Cali! So I wish you all a happy week and be sure to stop by on Wednesday for a guest post!
Also, I'm guest posting at Kori's blog on Tuesday so please stop by to read my post! Thanks!
