It’s December people. Literally, my favorite time of year. As I get older, it comes around much faster each time. Not that I’m complaining, it’s just that I’m always surprised that we’re here again. I look back at the year to see if I held true to my goals, if I challenged myself, if I took care of myself, if I spent enough time with friends, family, loved ones, if I became a better version of myself. December is  somewhat the last ditch effort to do something before the New Year begins.

December is also much more the month of family time, from time spending to gift giving to party going. I tried to take care of most of the gift-giving part by grabbing a few goodies for folks during black Friday sales but I must admit I got a little distracted and made it a little bit about me in the process. Thank goodness I still have a little time to complete the list.

As for all the party going, I’m starting to develop an appreciate for shiny and sparkly. I’ve never really been the gal to rock sequins or anything blinged out- but I think after a blessed year- I’m going to have to shine bright like a diamond a la Rihanna to close out 2017.

I’m getting started a little early in these boots- these Kate Spade boots are made to be noticed, to stand out, to be like WHOA! They are not understated or shy. In fact, Kate Spade in general is giving me life with their holiday collection.  It’s definitely a treat, not everyday prices- but if you’re going to treat yourself and get something super special, you definitely not going for basic- it better stand out, people better notice- and boy did they notice.

So- yeah, this year I’m going a little louder than usual, I plan to laugh louder, hug harder, love stronger- just be EXTRA with is. And I think that’s perfectly OK.
