Mexican Adventures

There are some decisions that are best made last minute and some that are best made with your best friends. 2016 started off with a last minute decision with my two best friends to plan a trip to Mexico and damn was it worth it. I’m sitting here now depressed and still thinking about the warm sun and endless drinks. We booked the trip two weeks before we left…final destination an all inclusive resort outside of Playa del Carmen.

We had all cruised before but this was our first “real” international trip and first all inclusive experience. We went in with no expectations except that no matter what we were going to have a good time. I think I can speak for the three of us that we didn’t have a good time we had an AMAZING time. From the group of people we met and spent most of the trip with to the amazing resort, the trip truly exceeded any expectation we had.

I couldn’t have asked for a better way to start off the year but now its back to reality…I start a new just in just over a week and really cannot wait to see what else this year has in store!


Peace Out 2015

Does anyone else feel like as you get older the years just start flying by? I want to go back to when I felt like Christmas was never going to get here. This year has flown by and has come with so many changes in my life ( good and bad).  The holiday season as I’m sure it was for a lot of you was crazy and I wasn’t able to post as much as I wanted. But now its new years eve and I decide to sum up my year and share some goal…{i might begin to ramble so I apologize in advance}

I first want to say I am so thankful for having Life After Letters as my creative outlet and having people who follow along. It has been just over a year since I decided to start blogging and it truly has given me the opportunity to refocus and find what I enjoy doing. It has helped shape my career path and I am exploring opportunities I never though possible because of it!

Now for some past goals…

I accomplished a little over half my holiday bucket list this year but again back to the time it just flys bye! One of my favorite things I crossed off was brunching in the city and seeing the windows with my sister and mom! Its was nice to just spend the day roaming the city and sipping mimosas.

I also set the personal goal of posting more regularly and at that didn’t always go as planned but its still a work in progress and hopefully its something I can finally do in 2016.

Goals for the new year….

I have mentioned it here and there but I am still job hunting after making the decision to leave a job that just wasn’t making me happy. I have some great opportunities in front of me and I would love to have it all figured out by the end of January. A new year and a new job I think goes very nicely together.

Travel more! I want to get out and see more…this is a big goal I have for the new year and I was to be spontaneous about it. I have something excited planned for the first week of the new year and I cannot wait to share where I’m off to!

Spend more time with the ones I love! This year taught me that life is short and tomorrow is never promised. Working long hours and being driven is great but if you come home every night and everyone is already asleep and you’re leaving for work before anyone is awake is it really worth it?

Well this is getting a bit long but 2015 was a great year and I learned a lot!I hope everyone can raise there glasses tonight surrounded by the ones they love and toast to happy and health new year!

Happy New Year! Cheers!


An OTK Obsession

I have to admit I have been loving all the hype over OTK {over the knee} boots but the price of the “it” pair is just way beyond what I am willing to spend. When saw these and the price tag I knew I needed them in my life and OMG I am so happy they are!!! Can we just talk about how much longer they make your legs look. They are a great pair of boots to add to your collection because of how much you can dress them up or down. This is a more casual look you could wear for all the up coming holiday parties and dinners but you could so easily pair the boots with a skirt or dress for a more formal evening.

Speaking of holiday parties…It’s almost time! The big day we have been shopping and decorating and spreading cheer for is just 8 days away! We have just about finished prepping at my house and I’m so happy to say the my sister is home for a few weeks from college. I have a girls days filled with shopping and brunch planned with her and my Mom this weekend in the city. I have been in a few time for drinks with friends but I’m excited to spend time with them walking around, seeing the Macy’s windows and the rest of city all dressed up!

Hope you all have an amazing weekend, thanks for stopping by!
