AJ Wears :: A Pug Umbrella

 Can you wear an umbrella? Or just carry it? Whatever. The point is, we're having a stormy day and I got to break out this adorable umbrella my friend Amy got me for Christmas. Have you ever seen anything more perfect? And you know my rule - bright colors on dreary days, so I dipped into my drawer of colored skinnies and pulled out this pink number.
 I also took the opportunity to pop on these fabulous gold flats from ShoeDazzle that arrived recently. I fell in love with Jessica's (Here&Now Blog) gold loafers and have had my eye on these for a while. Then they invited me to try their new VIP program and I couldn't resist $10 off! I love them.

 PS - I painted my nails and while this is hardly a beauty blog, I love this new polish set I picked up from Walgreens yesterday. It's Revlon's Moon Candy in Cosmos and just too fun. The little metallic flecks you get to paint on top make your nails look like little pieces of art. And it's easy...ain't nobody got time to paint a whole mural on their hands.

Weekend Snapshots :: Christmas and Beyond

Christmas was eventful, you guys. Not only did we have a white Christmas, we had an all out blizzard which led to a lot of shenanigans.

Amazing animal pajamas (they're called kigurimis) I ordered from China that my sister and I rarely took off. They are THAT. COMFY.

And yes, I'm ridiculous and put my dog in pajamas too. I found them at an after Christmas sale, don't judge me. Watching her prance around the house in a snowflake onesie turned out to be the best $4 that I've ever spent. It was HILARIOUS.

I knew it was going to snow in Little Rock on Christmas, but I had hope it would snow in Longview while we were visiting my parents. Luckily for me, we had a good hour or two of beautiful snow in Texas on Christmas! It was truly magical, and thankfully all melted the next day so we could still make the Target after Christmas sale.

Sadly, our house in Little Rock was not so lucky. We spent the rest of the week checking our thermostat waiting for it to come online. The house was out of power until Saturday - and then AGAIN on Sunday, so we've been house hopping for the past week waiting for heat and lights (and most importantly, internet).

Spent our last night of Christmas break at the casinos in Shreveport - I might not have won any money but I found a few slot machines that were a total blast!

My BFF from growing up, Chesley, standing in front of a million dollar wall at the Horseshoe Casino. Probably the only million I'll ever see in my lifetime!

How was your holiday, lovelies? I'm excited to get my party on tonight for New Years and I have my fingers crossed that it'll be one with lots of light and heat (power, hurry up!). I hope you all have a fabulous last night of 2012 and I'll see you in 2013 with lots more sequins and sass.
