Chinese New Year

Today is my birthday and it coincides with the Chinese New Year 2012. It’s the year of the Dragon. I’m not Chinese but because today is my birthday, why not celebrate it as well?

I found this dragon long sleeved shirt at Goodwill and I think it would be perfect for my birthday for the Dragon Year. It seemed like it was meant to be. I hope this year will be my lucky year :)  -We stopped by the Chinese Mall after church and snapped this pic.

Instead of the girl with the dragon tattoo, I officially said I’m a girl with the dragon shirt

Happy Birthday To Me! Happy Birthday To Me!  Happy Birthday Dear Suzana, Happy Birthday To Me !!

Express Pink Cardigan

It was Christmas eve’s, my husband Emory and I decided to have dinner in historic place called Dahlonega, GA after early Christmas church that day. It’s a really nice little town decorated with lights, wreaths and Christmas trees. It’s so festive. We didn’t realize all stores and restaurants were closing early that day. Didn’t get a chance to eat anything since morning, so we drove back to Atlanta. It’s about an hour drive. But at least we took some good pics there. While everybody was wearing red this Christmas, I wore pink. I love pink so much. Makes me feel so girly.

Black Over Pink Cardigan

The weather started getting cooler and I decided to put on my coat.
A lil bit of cheating here ;) as I didn’t list the price of this coat. It’s a gift from my husband.

This what I like about being frugal. Since you change clothes a lot, it’s okay to buy second-hand. If you don’t like them anymore, donate or give them to someone else. Save your money for investment pieces, like coats, boots, or nice party dress. It’s nice to have a few good quality classic wardrobes that you can wear for many years.

Red Boots

Love these boots. I love the burgundy colored boots. I can’t believe people just give stuff like this away. Well… one woman’s trash is another woman’s treasure right?

Last but not least… Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanza and Happy New Year Everyone!!

Mery Christmas Everyone

This outfit reminds me of my very favorite childhood television series called “Little House On The Prairie.”  I love the character of  Laura Engalls, the way she dressed up, the countryside where she lived, the house and the horse and buggy she rode in. I’m the youngest in my family and I used to play alone (since my sisters didn’t want to play with me), using our bunk bed as my horse and buggy, I pretended to be Laura. My sister and I also made night hats like Laura’s and wore it when we slept. Of course the next morning the hats were nowhere to be found since they came off our heads during the night.
