2012 - What A Great Year!



2012 has flown by and certainly has been a wonderful year.  Although my life is quite uneventful, I am so thankful for the many people and little events that have made this year so special.  Pictures are the best way to describe this.

2012 ~ I have gotten to watch my sweet puppy grown and become the joyful little fur ball she is.  My Uncle Doug, one of the biggest joys of my life, is such a wonderful part of my every year.  It is a must to mention the time spent with him in the making of such a special year.  I am so grateful for the opportunities I had this past year of being able to include him in college as I gave a presentation on the special person he is.  2012 is the year I purchased my beloved GMC Terrain!  A huge part of this year was the creation of my blog, one of the best decisions I have ever made.  This year, I got a little who I so dearly love.  I became more crafty in the year of 2012.  I got to travel with my best friend, my Mama!  We grow closer each year, although each year I can't imagine how our relationship could get any stronger that it already is.  I got many new sisters this year!  I cherish each and every moment spent with William this year.  He is one of the biggest joys of my life!  I have become much better at styling my hair this year (the little things).  My entire family has made this year amazing.  I love my big and have so many memories with her from 2012.  I have loved putting together outfits as this has been one of the highlights of 2012.  I had the opportunity to travel back to my favorite city in 2012, NYC!  I became a better cake decorator and am that much closer to having my own cake company!  Something that pictures can't show, I improved my studying habits and had a great year in school.  Also, I am grateful for the many blogging friends I have had the opportunity to meet in the year 2012.  

Also, a special thanks goes out to all my blog readers who encourage me to keep my blog going each and every day!  Thank you so much!

Now, if you've made it through this long post, there is one more thing I have to say…


Leave the past in the past!  Be sure to leave the mistakes and certain aspects behind you.  The best is yet to come!  Forgive those who have done you wrong, and start the new year with a fresh mind with new goals set.

I always get teary eyes as the year comes to an end, but the new year will bring many more opportunities, events, memories, and much more.  So long, 2012!  It has been a great year.

Stay Tuned!

Classy Collars

One of my favorite looks of the season has been sporting a cute collar with an accent necklace.  I feel like it adds that perfect extra touch.


Black Ruffles And Pearls


Dots and A Beaded Bauble


Peter Pan Collar And A Miriam Haskell


Now to focus on the styles I've seen and am loving:



I also love the idea of adding an accent collar as a necklace to any fun top or sweater!






Do you love the touch that a collar can add?

Merry Christmas!

















This Christmas Tree Farm photo shoot was inspired by one of my favorite blogs, Classy Girls Wear Pearls.  I loved the look that Sarah Vickers created and just had to try it out for myself.

Merry Christmas everyone!  I hope you have a wonderful day filled with cheer.  Let everyone around you know how much you love them today.  AND most importantly, remember the true reason for the season!  "And the angel said unto them, Fear Not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the Babe wrapped in swaddling clothes , lying in a manger." Luke 2:10-12

Merry Christmas!

Christmas Wish List 2012

Merry Christmas Eve, everyone!!  I have been waiting all season to share my wish list.  Now that the gift decisions are made, I will now do so.  This is what I'm hoping Santa will be bring to me tonight.


The Mini iPad (with cellular capabilities or whatever it's called) is up for the number one wish on my list.  My phone is constantly being used for too many reasons other than talking and texting, so I think this will be perfect for blogging, online shopping, instagraming, and much more.


I am dying for a new Yurman piece!  Yurman simply makes me melt, so it is sure to always find a spot on my wish list.

If you are a follower of A Preppy State of Mind on Instagram, then you know the latest collection by Kiel James Patrick, the Vicker's Bow Bracelets, are my latest obsession as they are a fun and unique way to add a touch of bow and a pattern to your outfits.  I seriously would love to have the entire collection, so I'm wishing for a few more to aid to my obsession.

I am wishing for another J.Crew quilted vest.  I own a navy one, but I would love nothing more than to have a pink one.  I would monogram it and enjoy it on many occasions.

One thing you must know about me, I am the worst when it comes to surprises.  It is almost impossible to surprise me with something.  Maybe it's due to the fact that there's something I'm always wanting…I'm just not sure.  But this year, I would love to be surprised with some fun gifts!  We'll just have to see.


One thing I do know for sure, Jaycee pup will be receiving some posh surprises to fit her posh little self this Christmas.


What is on your Christmas wish list for this year?  Please do share.  My Christmas excitement is at it's fullest.

Everyone enjoy your Christmas Eve!  May you sit back, relax, and savor the magical season with the ones you love today and tomorrow.

Stay Tuned!
