Holiday Party

Happy Friday! It's the Friday before Christmas... and it's dooms day. Oh boy, the Mayans are coming! Not really, I think it's safe to say we are in the clear but if not here is my final post, cherish it! 

During the holidays we all have work functions that we have to attend sometimes they are fun and sometimes they are a bit awkward. This year our office planed to have the Holiday Party at BOA Steakhouse. It's a swanky restaurant in West Hollywood. Brian was my date of course and we had a great time eating all of the delicious food and taking in the oh so cool ambiance. We were all dressed up for somewhere super chic to be! The table we were sitting at got to share some funny moments. When the "bread guy" came around to pass out one biscuit per person at the beginning of dinner Brian and I were the only ones who didn't receive any. I thought he probably just ran out and he will bring some more right out asap. Well... some time had gone by and still no bread for the two of us. Brian tracked down the "wine guy" and told him that we never received any bread. The wine guy was like "Oh well, I don't handle the bread I serve the wine but let me try and track someone down for you." Now I know I'm not the most fancy gal in the world but I have been a server at many restaurants and I never once told a customer "Well that's really not in my job description, I don't handle that product but I will find someone who does." Once the bread guy had finally came back with more bread he went around to the table where everyone had already received biscuits and is now handing them their second helping. When he got to our table everyone at our table was trying to explain to the guy that Brian and I never received any bread. The "bread guy" was like "Oh, do you want seconds?" Everyone spoke for us and told him "No they never received any." He just placed the bread on our plates and acted like no big deal. So from than on we all refereed to the servers by the item they were associated with. There was the bread guy, wine guy, menu guy, water guy, coffee guy, appetizer guy, entree guy, dessert guy. Which is kind of strange... I never worked at a restaurant where each worker handled one particular item. I didn't even know that existed. Even though the servers were a bit rude and snobbish we still had a really good time. The food was outstanding and it gave us all an excuse to dress up and enjoy a night out on the town outside of the office. Below are some pictures of the esthetics at BOA and pics of the outfit I wore.

Western Gal

Hi All, Happy Friday! TGIF baby woohoo! Tonight I decided to stay in and work on some homemade Christmas presents. Right now I am waiting on some modge podge to dry. I am making a pretty sweet Christmas present for one of my brothers. I can't really disclose what it is I am working on because it's a surprise! If it turns out pretty snazzy I might just post the finished product. Anywho, today's post is about an outfit I wore this week that is a bit country it makes me think that I would fit right in on a dude ranch. Check out the pics below and let me know what you think.

Happy Monday. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend I know I sure did. Brian and I celebrated our one year anniversary on Sunday. We had dinner at Wokcano the restaurant where we had our first date. We both enjoyed some delicious asian cuisine and shared a delicious chocolate and pistachio sponge cake. We had fun reminiscing about our first date and the silly things that we both did on date numero uno. Not to get to sappy but I can't imagine my life without Brian and I am so grateful to have  him in my life. He is an amazing friend, trustworthy and honest and can always make me laugh. He is such a considerate, attentive and caring boyfriend I really couldn't ask for much more. Aw, I just had me a moment! Anywho, below are some pics of our anniversary date. Enjoy ☺

Flower Ring: Aldo, Clutch: F21

Jacket: Urban Outfitters, Dress: Nordstorm Rack, Mary Janes: Steve Madden

Last but not least, Brian and I on our anniversary ❤

Hello Stranger

Hi Everyone, happy thirsty Thursday. Hope you guys are indulging in some yummy cold weather favorites like hot chocolate or apple cider. They both sound good to me. ☺Today's post is titled  Hello Stranger because for one it has been over a week since I have written a new post... hope no one forgot about me. Second because all of the pictures I posted in this blog do not show my face in any of them. The reason for that is because I don't  do my hair or make up during the week and well I sometimes look like a hot mess and no one wants to see that. The one thing that I don't skip out on is picking my outfit out the night before. I don't dress like a bum at work so I figured I could still enjoy posting some outfits during the week just as long as my baggy eyes and frizzy hair isn't in the mix. Below are some pics of the outfit I wore to work today. Hope you enjoy my pics. 

Chambray shirt: Zara. Tank top: Urban Outfitters, Skirt: Nordstrorm Rack, Flats: LuLus, Necklace: Charlotte Russe, Yellow Bracelet: H&M, Multi- Color bracelet: American Eagle, Turquoise Bracelet + Green & Pink Bracelet: Homemade
