I'm a little late but that's nothing new. This was my cute little number that I wore to dinner so when the ball dropped, I could be at home in pajamas. I always feel like a little sparkle is necessary for NYE and going out at night in general to somewhere cute. This little mini dress is from Shein (Search ID: 397918) to make it easier for you guys! Use the coupon code NADIA15 for 15% off plus size orders over $59. I'm wearing a size XL which fits like a 12/14. This one in particular is really stretchy. I also have decided to start wearing my hair more in a low bun or ponytail with it slicked down the middle. I use to do it all the time when I was in high school but cut back on the gel because I didn't want pimples. glitter side

"I don't go by or change my attitude based on what people say. At the end of the day, they, too, are judging me from their perspective. I would rather be myself and let people accept me for what I am than be somebody who I am not, just because I want people's approval." -Karan Patel

God I love a puff sleeve. When putting this outfit on I thought to myself, I have a ruffle skirt but I also have this puff sleeve. Is this too much? Then I decided no, it's not and just like that walked out my house. haha! I think it helps that I wore clear heels with it and the entire look is black and white. Also, do you love my new little wig situation? I got bored of mine so I threw this little number on and I may or may not call it Sasha.

“There is no passion to be found playing small—in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.” –Nelson Mandela

Wow. Ive always been a huge fan of LaQuan Smith and also a huge fan of ASOS. Them combining forces is EVERYTHING. Both this dress and thigh high boots are from their collection. Oh and it also comes in plus size. I love how they shot this lookbook. Can we discuss how I did my own make up and wig for this? I'm sooo proud of myself because I'm forever impatient with make up and hair and I finally took the time to watch a Youtube video on how to properly put foundation on and do a wing eye. I used tape. That was the secret incase any of you don't want to watch a full make up tutorial haha. Also, my I have on e.l.f. teal tease eyeliner.

"Your future is found in your daily routine. Successful people do daily what others do occasionally." -Paula White

Every family member or friend knows if they want to get me a gift but aren't really sure what I want, it's a pair of chenille socks. My best friend got me these ones I'm wearing for my birthday. I loooove love love a good fuzzy sock. I think my sock obsession started when I was 17-ish. I would buy regular cute socks with clouds and whatever was cute printed on them and then it became fuzzy socks. Now that the holidays are coming up, I can't stop. Someone save me. Jr's Rudolph nose came off of his set that I bought him last year so I'm going to buy him a new pair this year. Maybe this time I'll buy the socks with Rudolph printed on, like these ones from the GAP. He never reads my blog so he'll never know I'm planning on it. haha

"A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it, it just blooms." – Zen Shin

Oh just you know another casual day waiting for my Little Caesars pizza. haha. They remind me of when I use to live in NY. We had one on the block I use to live at and when I'd almost be out of money, I'd eat nothing but their $5 pizza for the day to hold me over. On another note, can you tell I love camo?

"A good idea can become a great idea when it is given focus time." -John C. Maxwell

I think that quote is so important. Most of my career, especially in the beginning, I was all over the place wearing multiple hats and doing so many tasks. I felt like I HAD to to get where I wanted to be. I later realized when I hone in on ONE thing I really want to accomplish and focus the majority of my energy on it, it would be more successful than if I were to half ass it. This past Summer I finally decided I wanted to get back to basics and hone in on what I enjoy. On another note, how great is this wig? 9I5A0267
