New Year Resolutions | 2016

Hello!!

Can you believe it's already almost 2016!? I have to say... this year flew by really fast. I love writing out my New Year Resolutions each year and then looking back at what I've done to achieve them. If you haven't seen my 2015 Resolutions, click HERE .

Here are some resolutions I'm hoping to achieve in 2016:


Save Money- The tricky part is doing this while I'm trying to get out of debt...

Start Posting On My Blog Twice A Week- I have come to the realization that my blog is what I love and it makes me really happy. I'm excited to start this venture next year and really stick with it!

Travel More- I'm looking forward to more exploring. After living in Nashville, I got a little taste of what's out there. It's so exciting to think about how much there is to see in the world! I want to start a travel page on my blog too. I'm hoping to diversify my blog!


What are your resolutions?? I'm looking to add some to the list. I really want to accomplish a lot in 2016 that I didn't get to in my past. This year is the year (doesn't everyone have to say that!?).

Until next year...

Men And Women

And just a little tip for you guys...BEFORE you shop on any website for the holidays, or just anytime in general, create an account on ebates.com first. This is not spam or a sponsor. You get cash back for each purchase. I have used it since the summer and the cash goes straight into your checking account! It's so worth it! I'll never shop another way! And just to help a girl out...use my referral link:



Happy Holidays!!!

Shop With Me Virtually at Nordstrom!

Happy Sunday!

For those of you who don't know, I'm an Assistant Department Manager at Nordstrom in Nashville. I've worked at Nordstrom since June 2015 and I love every second of it! I mean... who doesn't love Nordstrom?

Do you not have time to shop? Do you want to shop in your pjs? Do you hate spending time trying things on and finding nothing but wasted time?

I would love to work with you, and shop with you virtually. I mean... it is the 21st century! Nordstrom came up with a way that we can shop together over the phone. Let me become your new personal stylist, no charge!

Just text my work number: 615-645-2105

You will then be set up to work with me through texting. All you have to do if you see something you like is text buy.

Once you text me I will invite you to TextStyle which just allows me to send you pictures and styles. It will connect you to your nordstrom.com account so you won't have to type in your card number every time. How easy is that!?

Special events, weekend wear, or even a new bag. Whatever it is, I will go on a hunt and have access to the best deals. Trust me!

I look forward to working with you! No obligation to buy anything and this service is no charge. Let's just have some fun. :)
