Happy Wednesday, fab friend! You are halfway through the week, cheers to that! While the holiday season is my favorite time of the year (who could not love a time when people are filled with joy and cheer?!), I know this time is also a crazy busy time. With the normal routine of work, working out, and life itself, you have entertaining, extra shopping, decorating, baking, wrapping, and more to add to the list. So, what do I do during this crazy time in order to stay sane? I take a short weekend getaway!

I went to Ruidoso expecting tons of snow but the snow was actually a no-show. Lucky for me I bought “snow boots” that second as normal everyday boots. The boots are double layered to keep your feet warm and dry, but you couldn’t guess by looking at them could you? They are honestly the best purchase I have made in awhile! Snow boots can be suuuuuper expensive, and for us Texas gals, they get stuck in the storage bin in the attic for the majority of the year. These boots are honestly a must have if you are like me, you love to get away to the snow, but you don’t actually live where it snows (meaning they will get a max seven days worth of use a year). Did I mention that these double use black boots are super inexpensive? Bonus.

This material blocked coat is perfect for the holiday season! It says sophisticated lady with a pop of edge. Not to mention it is black and who does not love/need/want a black coat with a little something extra?

I know who has two more things to add to their Christmas list- you!

Wow y’all, as of today I have been blogging for an entire year! Nov. 30th of 2013 was my first blog post on C&C. So much has changed since then.

People often ask me what blogging is all about and I constantly get asked, “So you like model clothes, right?” Well, kind of, I guess… but it is truly so much more than that. Blogging has given me the ability to give you all insight into my biggest passion, which is fashion (as if you could not already tell). Growing up I was not into athletics, and the last thing I wanted to do was study. From since I can remember I loved clothes and I loved shopping. I remember the first time my mom took me into Limited Too, I went absolutely nuts. Suede, sparkly pants? Every color please and thank you. Back to my point… even more, I loved putting new and funky things together from new and old pieces in my closet. Something about getting dressed up has always fascinated me and I loved being the first girl at school to wear something other people would not dare to wear. Maybe that sounds horrible to say, but I loved it. 

Blogging has impacted and changed my life completely over the last year. I will forever look at every opportunity as a possible Instagram picture (kidding, kind of). But really, blogging has opened up more doors for me than I could have ever imagined. I have had the opportunity to work with incredible companies such as rewardStyle, Kendra Scott, GiGi New York, Keds, Barrington, Conversation Pieces, Blush Boutique, Petal Child, Old Navy, and Stripe Clothing to name a few.

I have met so many inspiring and genuine people through blogging who continue to encourage me everyday.

One of the most important things that blogging has taught me is that while there are tons of people rooting for you and there are tons of people supporting you, there are two ton of people who are not. Y’all… people are mean. Breaking news right. With that said, I am not one of those people and I hope you are not either. Being nice is truly so much prettier than being mean. My point being, when you do something in life, do it for you. Do it because you love it, you want to breathe it, you want to be it, you want to completely immerse yourself in it. If people do not like what you do 1) they probably do not understand it 2) they probably do not know what they like to do. You know what the world would be if we all liked and did the same things? Booooooooooooooring.

To wrap it up, the last year has been; rewarding, challenging, educational, inspiring, fulfilling, memorable, eventful and as with anything, at times, stressful. Blogging has truly given me my “thing” and I could not be more thankful for that.

Thank you for following along for the last year and I hope you continue to for the years to come! I am blessed to have the best people following along with my blog and I could not do it without y’all. There are so many exciting things in store for Courtney & Confetti and I could not be more excited!!!
