Meet my Doggie! Appa Honoo

So, If you follow me on twitter you know me and my husband got a dog. You also know I have never every in my life been a dog person... and was always SCARED of dogs. I remember my first dog was a black lab, and still a puppy, and I was scared to death of that thing. My parents finally had to get rid of him because I wouldn't go outside. I feel kinda bad now.... my brother could never have a dog because of me.... but you cant help your fears right?! haha. So when my husband said he REALLLLLLY wanted a dog, I was hesitant!! BUT being married you do have to compromise...and because it was important to him, I thought I would see how it worked!

So far so good. He is a good dog, not too hyper which i HATE!!! He doesn't jump up on your or anything. He is 2 years old and a Australian Shepherd and retriever mix. We named him Appa after the flying buffalo on "Avatar the Last Airbender"...and Honoo for this middle name which means "flame" in japanese! We tend to like Asian names... (hence our cats...Yuki Lapoof and Jubei Kibagami...lol) I just hope my cats get used to him. I love my cats more than anything in the whole world, and i really don't want them to be sad or scared. I have heard of cats getting on anti depressants... poor little things! One of my cats is doing OK, but the other one is scared to death. lol. :(

Anyways, Wish me luck!!

Looks like Appa and Yuki are already comfortable! :)

Kiss Kiss...Bang Bang....

UGH.... I was getting so freakin sick of my hair, so I randomly, and quickly decided to chop off my bangs. I am not the type to change my hair cut...so bangs and color is the only thing I do when I need a dramatic change. Plus, I cant part my hair down the middle unless I have bangs, and I love the look...so that was another reason. My husband asked me if I filmed a video on it, and I said no...and he said "uh, well that was stupid..." LOL... yes it was, but when I get the urge, sometimes I just have to go with it. Next time I cut them I will do a video :)

Forever 21 Fall Picks

First off is a good pair of tights...either plain black or a pair with a pattern, These are amazing in the fall underneath a pair of denim or black shorts...and booties or calf height boots!

You all know a statement necklace is my thing to spice up a plain outfit... this one is amazing and something I definitely have my eye on!

I LOVE this shirt!!!! I love the cut out on the shoulders!!! omg...WANT!!! I might make a tutorial on how to cut a t-shirt like this! ^_^

This is just awesome. I love the fall colors in this top!! At the same time, it still has that summer bohemian feel. Perfect top for thanksgiving dinner!! :)

Definitely a must have for this fall is a small satchel purse. I got my first one recently (a little late on this trend) and I LOVE them. They are super stylish and small so you don't have a sore shoulder at the end of a long day. haha

So cute. These are another statement piece that would make any simple outfit look more elegant and chic. Not only that... I looove the color of the gems!! so Fall-ish. haha

An infinity scarf is a great thing to have this fall as well. Especially for those days you just want to be comfy and warm!! I want one in bright scarlet red, and mustard yellow!

Feathers, feathers, feathers.... one of my biggest obsession this fall, especially in earrings!! so cute!

As alot of you have seen in most of my fashion vids... i like to rock my cropped motorcycle leather jacket! its perfect for high waisted skirts, and a cover up for almost anything. Definitely a must buy!

CLOGS!! love these! especially with the shorts with tights trend!!

a chunky sweater cardigan is another essential for those comfy cold fall days. skinny jeans, booties, and a statement necklace would be amazing with this.

CARGO SKINNIES! I have been looking everywhere for a good pair of these! I know Sears has a good pair too. :)

Booties are great too because they keep your feet warm!! I personally look for booties with a low heal that I can wear all day without sore feet!! Lace up booties are definitely an extra bonus! :P

Fall and Winter Boots

So, as most of you know... Boots are my go to shoe in the Fall and Winter. Its pretty much all I wear. The only thing I hate is finding the PERFECT pair! Here are 2 pairs that I have found this year that I'm beyond excited for! Check them out!! :)

Have you ever had a piece of clothing in your head...that you have pretty much designed yourself and something you are determined to find?? I used to do that with Prom dresses all the time. I would have a picture of this perfect dress in my mind...and if I didn't find it, I would be disappointed. (Most of the time I didn't find it..and would have to settle for something else. lol) Well...that's what happened with these boots. These boots are the perfect example of your "dream shoe" Something you were determined to find.. but don't know if they exist! Haha. They had the heel height, the tight ankle, the laces, the leather, the hooks, and the price.....everything i was looking for. and the best thing about it was..... they were at Rue 21 for about $30.00!!!! I couldn't believe my eyes! LOL.. I told my husband that even though we weren't going to buy anything we didn't "need" this month... these babies were an exception. lol.

Alright...so this next pair was from TJ Maxx. A client of mine told me that she found a great pair of boots there...so of course it tempted me to go check it out. Deep down I didn't think I would find a pair I liked... because last time I was there I didn't see any... but I thought I would give it a try. As I was browsing the shoes... there it was.... a lonely black boot calling my name. But there was only ONE!!! I couldn't find the partner! I looked all over the freakin shoe dept determined to find the match... it took me FOREVER, but I finally found it, and it was worth the hunt!! haha. They were on the expensive side.... $50.00 but they are amazing. they aren't too tall so I can wear them everyday and they are more fitted around the calf. I HATE boots that are too baggy around the calf area. They also have the little knit leg warmer coming out of the top! PERFECT!! I'm set for boots now. The only thing I am looking for now is a simple pair of flat brown ones.

So... the two places you all should check for boots this year are Rue 21 and TJ maxx. Good prices and CUTE!!!

Have a wonderful day and thanks for reading
