Hope Everyone has a fun and safe evening tonight!! I am so excited for the year to come... I hope to share some goals ( personal and for the blog) later in the week, then be back to posting everyday starting on Monday.

So, hopefully you are putting on some sparkles, enjoy some champagne, and dancing right into 2013 tonight :)

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday loves! I am ready to not be in work today and have one last weekend of holiday celebrations with a dinner at Laurel Hardware tonight, a holiday party on Saturday, and maybe, just maybe, watching the NY Giants get their act together and possibly but not likely make the playoffs...followed by a half-day of work on Monday before going here for New Years Eve (and FINALLY wearing this amazing Proenza Schouler number I've had hanging in my closet)
What are your big plans for this last weekend of 2012??

Music to my Ears

Santa was good to me this year and placed the Nike Free 4.0's I have been asking for under the tree.  I am so excited to try them out, but am in desperate need for some new work out music. The majority of my workout mix is of the trendy pop genre/country/or the occasional rap song. I also love a good dance remix or mash-up.

So, I implore you, my dear readers, to recommend some great new songs for me to add to my playlist. 

Now I just need to also get these awesome shorts for the gym

Merry Christmas to All

Wishing you and your loved ones a very Merry Christmas. I know for me, given the events that have taken place in our country, I am just feeling so blessed to be able to spend another holiday with those I love. I am looking forward to a few days off work to celebrate with family and friends.

And thank you to Jimmy Fallon, for somehow improving on the best Christmas song ever.

Mad about Malachite

I fell in love with this gorgeous holiday table  Hilary Thomas shared on One King's Lane Live Love Home section, and my jar dropped with her malachite table runner and gold accessories.

I am a sucker for anything malachite. I think it just looks so chic and glamorous, and adds a pop to any space.

chic drapes from an interior in Elle Decor
Chic bathroom accessories from Dransfield & Ross..I would probably use the wastebasket in my bedroom or office as storage..
A stunning candle from L'Objet..once the candle is used up, clean it out and a great desk accessory...

A vintage Rolex with malachite face..enough said...

A stunning interior from Sally Wheat
Make a statement with bold chairs

As seen in Texas home of Atlantis Home
Wallpaper from Black Crow Studios

An affordable and chic alarm clock from  Furbish

and my own little bit of malachite, a Rose Bowl flea market find that normally holds paper clips and change on my desk at work.

And we're back....

*I wrote this post before the terrible and tragic events that took place in Newtown on Friday and debated not publishing it. I feel like everything I posted about just doesn't even matter. My heart just aches for these families* 
Sweet Nothings is officially back. Slowly. I thought today was a fitting day to start this journey is my 28th birthday. For some reason, it is an age that sounds really old. There are so many things I thought I would've done by now, accomplished. Things I would have seen; love I would have shared; experiences I would hold onto, trying to not forget. 

Twenty-seven was a year that was filled with a lot; which was part of the reason I took the last four months off... I've had to deal with people moving away, with seeing those closest to me in pain, and constantly pushing off my own feelings as not valid.  I struggled with a loss of faith-in people, in God, in love and relationships. I worked too much. I let myself go.  I watched way too much Bravo. I accepted the way people treated me because I didn't believe I deserved any better. I drank way too much wine. I felt lost, constantly, which made me feel even more lost because I thought by now I was supposed to be over all of this. But not to say it was all bad..I moved into a new apartment, worked at an amazing job and was promoted, watched some of my closest friends have babies and see the absolute joy my new nieces and nephews bring to their (and my) lives, and have had some really special people enter my life, people I cannot imagine my life without now-even if some of them now live a few states away. I sat in the rain in San Francisco and watched the NY Giants kick a field goal to go the Superbowl,  reconnected some old friendships, and I saw Mumford and Sons at the Hollywood Bowl, which was almost like a religious experience in itself.

So, what can I expect from the year ahead? I have no idea. I know January will be rough, my mom is having a double masectomy, but two weeks later her and my dad will celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary, and we are taking a huge, family vacation next summer to celebrate-location TBD as we have to make our presentations over Christmas. Come April, I cannot wait to spend another amazing weekend with some of my closest friends at Stagecoach. And next August, I plan to run a half-marathon.  I hope to have a lot more blog dates with some pretty special ladies, and lots of puppy snuggles. Continue to work for a great company.  I didn't forget I promised you all a lovely little apartment tour, I hope to paint and get it ready to show. And come October, my ten year high school reunion.

So, bear with me in the next few weeks as I get my footing back to five posts a week and in the swing of things. There are so many look for less posts, house tours, workouts, quotes, and recipes I have been ready to share. I'm excited to catch up with this amazing community, a community of people I have truly missed. And if there's no readers left, well that's ok too.
