The last few days of 2012.. Welcome 2013!

I hope that everyone had a good holiday.. I'm definitely still suffering the consequences of too little rest and too much fun. I've managed to stay decently healthy over the last few months but one weekend in LA and... I'm sick again. Thankfully, it seems like I'm getting over my cold because I've been bundling up in layers and layers of clothes instead of baring it all for the sake of looking good.. Jk!

Anyways, the past couple weeks have been quite hectic due to the fact that I flew to Las Vegas for 3 days over Christmas, then flew to LA a couple days after that to spend new years with my beloved friends. The common theme being... Stuff your mouth full of wonderful food and bask in the joy of unlimited and super delicious noms... Of course this ended up in me gaining 4 lbs over the three days I spent in Vegas. Wtf...

Luckily for you guys, you can enjoy all the food porn of my trips without gaining the weight from consuming everything within arm's length.

  15. I actually can't eat that much of sweets, I just took a bite of each LOL! Actually since hervia stopped selling VW I haven't bought online.. The store in Melrose was the one I went to a couple weeks ago! I've been going there since opening and they always have awesome sales. American rag has some VW heels I've been lusting over for a while too ;__;

  34. Thank you! It seems like the dilemma between looking nice and potentially getting sick has decided my fate. Winter is dreadful for trying to lose weight... So many fruits out of season and the nagging desire to want to eat and vegetate *~*
