Thanksgiving Outfit Idea + Life Update


Hello LOVES!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

I hope you can tell how happy I am to be working on this post today!

Two reasons:

  1. I really want to share this outfit with you that I personally find so cute for Thanksgiving and
  2. I’ve had so many wonderful and life changing things happen to be in a span of a week so I can’t wait to spill the details.

This top is randomly enough from I say it’s random, because I can’t ever find anything at the actual store. Online shopping seems to be a lot more fun for me. The choker and jeans are from Topshop. You guys KNOW I’ve worn them so many times! I hope I don’t bore you for always posting the same damn pair of jeans, but it’s what I own and love lol. I love having a few key pieces I can wear many times and feel good in. The purse is Fossil, and the shoes are from Steve Madden. The lipstick is from MAC called Chili. Some things are older, so I couldn’t find the exact item, but here are some I hope help!


NOW to the real juicy part!!!

Some of you may have guessed already. I officially moved out of my Mama’s house!!! HAHAHA

I’m in my late 20’s, and I’ve always lived with my mom with the exception of the time I studied abroad in Paris. It’s Mexican tradition to remain with your mother until you are officially married, but I consider myself very liberal when it comes to this subject. Needless to say, I was so nervous about breaking the news to my mom, because I did decide to move in with my Cuddle Bug. Not ideal for my mom, but surprisingly enough she gave us her blessing and even prayed for us!

That to me is worth more than any material thing in the world. Having my mom’s blessing is so important for my peace of mind.

SO yeah! Cuddle Bug and I officially have our own place!!!

This has been debated on and looked into for a year basically. We almost got a place back in July, but the two units we wanted at that time were sold out the same day!!!! Not to mention, the area they were in was not ideal, because we both have dreamed of living in our favorite Houston neighborhood, which is located right next to our favorite park. To be completely honest, I didn’t think it would happen during our first round of moving. But God has perfect timing for everything, and we found a unit in a perfect area for us along with a great price!

So we have been living a mini honeymoon. We walk in the mornings to Starbucks together to grab coffee and to the market to restock our fridge. It’s these small things that we have been yearning and praying for for so long that truly make me feel like I am living a dream!!!

Now the next big chunk of juicy news…

I OFFICIALLY accepted a Marketing Coordinator position!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I applied for this position while I was still in France and interviewed for it when I returned. My last interview was last week, and I thought I blew it. (I can doubt myself sometimes, and I hate it.) But my new manager called me Wednesday to offer me the position along with a ton of compliments about how much I impressed her and her boss.

My closest friends know how MAJOR this is for me, because this time last year, I was completely depressed. I could not even finish my sentences without starting to cry. Everything was going wrong in my life, and I did not understand why.

I was at an all time low and completely ashamed of my life and myself because I felt like I wasn’t accomplishing anything. I felt like I was letting myself settle for everything, but what I truly wanted out of my life. I felt like I was fighting hard to get ahead or make some type of progress, but like I was doing it all in quicksand.

On top of everything, things were going on at home that I desperately wanted to fix but couldn’t. It was just terrible!

So the reason I am sharing with you my great news is to remind you that you HAVE to keep fighting and trying and thinking outside of the box. No problem comes without a solution.

The first solution is your mentality!

One day I woke up, and I decided that I would no longer allow myself to feel like a loser. That I would be patient as I tried my best to improve my life. I had to reach a state of peace and trust in God that something would work out if I did my part, and finally I am seeing the outcome of that!

With that being said, I want to thank you who read my blog, because this project or outlet has brought an incredible source of happiness into my life. I truly hope you enjoy reading it and that it helps in some way, any way!!! Because I understand that a lot of us go through similar hardships, and although we might think no one understands, we are not alone!

I am so grateful and I thank you for support not only during this month of giving thanks, but every day!

Have an amazing weekend!!!
