And my Vegas vacation continues…with shopping on Saturday 🙂
I carried my sparkle theme to Saturday even in the daytime as you can see. What can I say…I’m Taylor Swift at heart. A bunch of us met for lunch at So Yummy. I highly recommend it as well. Try the Fries dusted with Chili and Cocoa powder and dip them in a shake!

The holiday decorations at the Bellagio…those bears are completely made of flowers.
Then we went over to the new hotel, Cosmopolitan. I loved it! There are chandeliers everywhere! It’s gorgeous. And I just had to hop into this giant sized shoe.
We walked around and shopped all over the place…Notice that I do not have a single bag in my hand…I know right? So unlike me…I don’t know why I didn’t end up with anything…but never fear I am heading to California next week so South Coast hear I come! Haha!

All of you know I have an obsession with shoes. And when I see the red sole, I get this fuzzy feeling inside me. I wanted to buy some this weekend in vegas, but I was good and didn’t. However, I did decide to dedicate a post to these beauties. These are my favorite styles from this year’s collection.
(My boss’ wife had these at the Christmas Party, and I almost died. They’re amazing.)
Lady Peep Sling
(I saw a lady wearing these in Vegas too…I think I started drooling…they look so amazing when they are actually on someone.)
I think she is seriously so adorable. I love her. Also, for being so young she has one of the cutest styles ever. Ummm…look at Miley…yuck.
I wish I looked like this girl. She is going to be even that much more amazing as she gets older.
I’m not so sure about Justin’s outfit here, but she looks beautiful!
This is one of my favorite outfits…it’s perfect for her and I LOVE the pattern. The cut makes her look so much taller. Also her shoes are so cute…see below.
I absolutely love this Marchesa dress…I’m drooling over her right now. It’s so cute on her.
1. DIY Christmas Ornament Wreaths…I want to make one of these. You can make any color you want, as full as you want, etc…I think they’re so fun!
I wonder how many ornaments I would break in the process…
I love the ribbon, textures, and color of this one.
2. I’m pretty sure that I NEED this cuff by Stella & Dot. I think it speaks for itself. So cute. I just found this website out of Marie Claire. Found
3. I really like this quote. I feel like deep down that’s all anybody wants.
“I heard what you said. I’m not the silly romantic you think. I don’t want the heavens or the shooting stars. I don’t want gemstones or gold. I have those things already. I want a steady hand, a kind soul. I want to fall asleep, and wake, knowing my heart is safe.“

4. I love these Seven for All Mankind Pumps. I think the colors are great. I want them, but they don’t exactly seem like winter shoes…hmmm, probably won’t stop me.
5. I need to decide which color I want this Banana Republic Clutch in. It’s the perfect size and super sparkly in person. They have it in this gold color, black, silver, and red. Great for the holidays.
6. I’m obsessed with Katy Perry right now. How could you not be? She just won an award for being the first person to have 5 number 1 hits off of one album. Which one of is this song….The One That Got Away. I, however, LOVE this acoustic version, similar to the one she performed at the AMAs. (I love both versions, but this one is awwwwesome). I need to find it somewhere to download.
These are Bella’s Wedding shoes from Twilight – Breaking Dawn: Part 1. Not going to lie…I kinda love these. And yes, they really are for sale by Manolo Blahnik, at Nieman Marcus. I got an email about them. For a mere $1295.00 they can be yours 🙂 I might consider it.
I am thankful that I have so many things to be grateful for! I just thought I would write some of them down. I know I will forget most of them. First of all obviously my family. It’s hard to live away from them, and I miss them so much! I can’t wait to see them at Christmas, which is another thing I am grateful for…fast and easy transportation so that I can! (and credit card miles so that it’s free). I am thankful for my extended family who invite me to hang out with them and take care of me since mine is so far away. Also for Jake’s family for this same reason. This year I am thankful for Jake’s sister for her amazing meal today. I am thankful for Jake and Kale being a part of my life, they are so great to me and I love them so much. I am thankful for a good job, which allows me to do fun things and shop :). I am thankful for my education and the opportunities that I have had in life. I am thankful for my friends, new and old. I couldn’t ask for better!
Now for my frivolous things…I am thankful for my hairdresser, because she did an amazing job this week, I love it! I’m thankful for TV because I would get so bored at work and at night being home alone. That being said…DVR and Hulu. I am thankful for Nike, because I would have such a hard time working out if it wasn’t for cute workout shoes. Also for shoes in general, because they make getting out of bed and getting dressed worthwhile right? haha jk. But really high heels….I’m barely 5’4″ and that might be a stretch. I am thankful for hairdryers because my hair would look like a disaster without one. Hot water…duh. All wheel drive. Make-up. Target! Adele and Taylor Swift. The internet and my computer. Umm probably the most obvious, my camera. 🙂 haha. DVDs and TV on DVD. Uggs in the winter. Seat heaters in my car. Boats in the summer. Anthropologie and J.Crew. Leggings. Rubios. My cell phone, so I can talk to friends and family whenever I want. A comfy bed to sleep in at night. A country where I am free to be myself and do what I want to do.
I could go on and on.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!
