My New Years Day Look 2016

I woke up this morning to welcome the New Year wanting a casual but fun, trendy look. And I really think I've achieved it!

Let's start with my pixie hairstyle. First of all, I've never really thought about styling my pixie wig till I spoke to E. She was kind of enough to offer to come over with her flat iron so we could create some new styles.

But over the holidays, I caught a glimpse at Mode's 3 Short Hairstyles video. Not only was intrigued but I was inspired to do it myself.

Footnote: The model, Monanalani's eyebrows are amazing! Just check out the video below for inspiration!



My top is from Gwynnie Bee clothing rental subscription. ASOS Curve Origami Top with Animal Print shows off my hairstyle and features.



I finished my look with 2 bling hair pins that I purchased on sale, at the drugstore.



I received some wonderful beauty advice from the HuffPost Live beauty squad last year. When rocking short close hairstyles, you can use bold colors. Emphasis on one focus point that you want to pop. That's usually means my lips. I just love red.

HuffPost Live: Thursday Thoughts ~ New Year Eve! 2015



I did enjoy seeing more diversity in the fashion and beauty industry in 2015. Especially on the major magazine covers.

I hope to see more diversity of age, size, gender and color in 2016.



Hubby and I are looking forward to The X-Files and Gilmore Girls reboots in 2016.

And before I forget, the last season of Downton Abbey. Sundays just won't be the same.



Hubby and I attempted to watch "Marco Polo", on Netflix. We only got through a few episodes and determined it just wasn't worth it.



When we heard that Target pharmacy was going to be taken over by CVS we thought about transferring our medications. Just too many bad experiences with CVS pharmacy to mention.

I'm glad we stuck it out. The service is still there and I love to 'browse' the aisles at Target!

Happy New Year beauties!

Old Navy Has A Wonderful Kids Selection!

Old Navy was offering discounts up to 66% this Christmas. I couldn't help myself when I saw this adorable dress and leggings for N. She looks so cute. Even the coat was on sale!

It's fun to give gifts when you can save money!

Happy New Year everyone!

Follow Rona Berry-Morin's board New Year's Eve on Pinterest.

We had a wonderful Christmas week! I sure hope that you did as well.

We like to celebrate the entire week. One of our holiday dinners was Whole Foods take out. It's one of the few places I can eat a deli sandwich without a reaction. We purchased pizzas, custom deli sandwiches, fruit tarts and eclairs.

Make-Your-Own Sandwiches night was on Christmas Eve. Thank you Vons grocery delivery for making that meal possible.

Korean BBQ on Christmas was fun and delicious. It was our first time dining at a Korean BBQ restaurant. And It sure won't be our last. I love cooking our food on the table top grill!
