Surviving the Holidaze Pt 4

Wow, can you believe it’s the end of 2015 already? WE MADE IT! This is one of the first years in my life that really felt as if it went by quickly. (I think it’s partially due to meeting and growing together with my blog partner who helps me keep the gears of this lil machine turning LOL.) This year has been far from perfect. I’ve had setbacks. I’ve had plot twists. I’ve changed paths and entered new lanes. Old relationships fizzled out and new ones blossomed.

I’ve had various blogs in the past but I’ve never been as serious about blogging as I am now and I really owe a HUGE thank you to you guys for keeping me focused over these past three months. You may not know this but when you guys come by regularly, hit the like button on my posts, start following me, or leave a comment, it inspires me to keep going. I don’t wanna get mushy but you guys really have touched me. All of you. From Canada to Costa Rica. South Africa to Spain. Thailand to Trinidad & Tobago.

I never make New Years resolutions because I always forget them by February but if you guys promise to keep coming by (please do, LOL) I promise to keep pushing myself to create content worth coming back for.

This is my last post of the year so whatever your plans for NYE be sure to have fun and be safe. And without further ado…let’s get into the final installment of Surviving the Holidaze.



Do you prefer elegance over edginess? Is Jackie O your spirit animal? Do you gravitate to timeless fashion pieces? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions then this look is for you.

New Years Eve is all about glitz. When picking an outfit you want to shine as brightly as the Times Square ball. While it’s the perfect opportunity to embrace shine, all sparkles are not created equally. If you prefer a more mature look, skip the glitter and sequins which can sometimes come off youthful and opt for a molten, metallic finish like the one on this open back dress. Its pleats, criss-cross back, and seam at the natural waistline give it a sophisticated look that will always be stylish. Paired with an eye-catching jeweled cuff it’s a perfect party look for a New Years Eve soiree. If this look speaks to you stop by Banana Republic where this golden dress and cuff can be purchased for just under $200 Canadian including tax.
