Happy Holidays to all!  What a year it has been!  So much has happened and honestly I am so excited to see what the next year brings!

This year was full of ups and downs :

  • moving into a new house!
  • having the company I loved working for close down
  • getting a new job at a very well-known company
  • … and hating it.
  • Quitting that job
  • Getting another job in something I am completely unfamiliar with but looking forward to it like no other job before!

I’m hoping to have more time to dedicate to my creative outlet – my blog! (It’s even one of my resolutions!)  I have wanted to keep up with it however, life gets in the way.

Wishing a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all!

Do you have a best friend? Does he have a big coat too?

As I’m sitting shivering from taking my pup out for a walk, I’m also dreaming of a white Christmas… wait, is that flurry I see outside?  I TAKE IT BACK!

I love the white stuff during the holidays but there is NOTHING worse or more painful (if you’ve experienced a North East winter lately, you’d know the pain) than being caught outside when freezing temps hit.. hard.  That’s why this Christmas, I’m actually hoping for less wintry mix conditions and more for a big puffy coat!

What was once seen as a ski-slope essential is now a must-have for keeping on trend and cozy during the winter months.  Add some fur to the trim on the hood and I’m ready to go. Another great option is to switch up the predictable black coat for a fun color – try a winter pastel!

Below are some perfect style ideas incorporating the puffy coat.
