Christmas Money Spending

Christmas money spending
M.A.C. Lip glass: 'Viva Glam 1''Girl About Town' | Ring: Kate Spade | Leather pants: BlankNYCG-Star | Wellies: Hunter High Gloss (Brick Red) | Metallic Skirt: TrouvePrint leggings: SplendidHue | Bailey 44 Dresses: 'Black Hole''Twisted Heart'

We're back from our little SoCal trip. Ok, I'm lying. I'm typing this on the plane while finishing my Bailey's on the rocks. (Not to be confused with the Bailey 44 dresses I ordered above. Hehe) However, by the time you read this, I will be in bed home from our trip. I didn't want to do any shopping there since packing space was limited. Just to get my Christmas presents home without having to check a bag was a feat. I may or may not have looked like this:



I really didn't want to exceed my 2 carry on limit and have to check a bag. I used all my body weight and managed to get it closed. You bet I let out a victorious squeal when it zipped! The added holiday weight certainly helped my endeavors - glad I ate those two breakfast tacos this morning even though I wasn't hungry! That being said, I certainly wasn't shy about loading up some online shopping carts. I've been on a self-imposed ban since Black Friday *and* I had Christmas money?! I was practically salivating to shop. We'll see how much of this actually works, but I'm pretty excited and looking forward to more shopping fun in 2014! What are you spending your Christmas money on? Anything Santa didn't bring you that you are *forced* to just buy yourself?

    1. Hahah! Thanks! You saw what I packed! Imagine adding a tote bag plus a pair of those boot stuffers (that keep your boots upright)! Luckily the husband had room in his quart sized bag for the new nail polish I got. It was a challenge!
      I really really hope a pair of the leather pants work out. Fingers crossed!!

  2. Haha yes, I was just "forced" to buy a couple of things for myself after Christmas, it wasn't my fault! I bought some red velvet shoes. Next year I've just got to control my spending. I love the metallic skirt in your post, it's really beautiful. Hope you had a fabulous Christmas and best wishes for the new year.

  5. Safe travels home! I am going to be buying some new pieces with gift cards I received, but I am going to wait until it gets a bi warmer so I am more in the mood to make some spring purchases. You have some inciting choices though!
