Can we just take a quick moment to talk about how crazy this weather has been lately? I know it’s been across the country crazy so I know we can all relate. My sinuses have been all over the place because one minute it’s freezing and then 2 days later it feels like Spring. Back in October I was wishing and hoping for cold weather so I could wear all my favorite winter coats & bundle up in scarfs….now that Mother Nature as granted me the cold weather I wanted for Christmas now in January I’m a little like “ok thanks, but now I’m a little over it, I want Spring”. I guess that’s why they say be careful what you wish for. However, I am going to take advantage of finally being able to wear this adorable chunky knit scarf & a real coat without burning up.
It’s so funny to see how much your style can change in just one year. Looking back on previous posts & even through my closet I’ve noticed a slight change in things I once loved and now I’m kind of over and things I never thought would become a staple like the black pumps I’m wearing. Me. In heels, yeah right…if you asked me this time last year. Now it’s the first things I look at in the shoe department.
A new year means new beginnings and big changes….for me it means a new car. I’ve been going back & forth with the process of finding a new car for like over a year, and now the time has come and it’s officially here and really happening I’m beyond excited but so nervous. One of my friends recently bought herself a new car and she told me she found the best selection of cars in Newton Kansas so when I properly start car shopping, I might visit Conklin Cars. I’ve been thinking about buying a new car for years and I have a few cars that I like the look of, there’s just so many to choose from though! First off, buying a new car is like the hardest, most annoying thing ever. How are you supposed to know what car you want? I’ve spoke to so many different people who just seem to tell me different car models. A few people have told me that there’s so much choice online, apparently there’s an eagle talon for sale on Autozin for example, as well as so many others. However, I can’t for the life of me decided on one car, I have like 5 I’m thinking of, and friends are telling me to consider the Wichita Chevrolet Equinox and at least two others. It’s a lot to deal with. How are you possibly meant to decide when there’s so much choice? I can’t talk to car dealers at all so my parents are having to help which is awesome to have them help because I know I won’t get screwed over. It’s like a bitter sweet goodbye. I currently have a 4-runner that I bought all by myself right before leaving for college at Alabama. I fit my entire life in her to head off to college, back & forth from T-town, to visit all my friends away in their college towns and I can’t even count how many trips to the beach….beach sand became a staple in her after college when I practically lived at the beach that summer. It also toted me to first Market in ATL when I launched my boutique. It’s crazy that something like a car can become somewhat sentimental. Am I crazy? I typically am not attached to anything, I’m one of those who constantly donating everything after a few months or giving it to my friends. Maybe it’s because it represents my first big purchase as a young adult and holds all those memories of college. 2017 is all about a new chapter and I’m excited to make new big moves this year!
I hope y’all’s new year is off to a great start! I still can’t believe how quick last year flew by!
