Can you believe it is almost 2016?! This has been an exciting year for me as I have started this blog, which is something I have been thinking about doing for a while now. I have been overwhelmed by the amount of support I have received from fellow bloggers and friends. I seriously do a happy dance every time you leave a comment on my posts! I hope you have enjoyed my blog so far and hope you will continue to follow me on my blogging journey in the upcoming year.

I always enjoy reading posts like this and seeing what products my blogger friends are using. I wanted to share with you some of my favorite products from this year. I have joined forces with my friend Ashley from the Mixed Bag for a 2015 Favorites giveaway, where we are giving one lucky reader some of our favorite things!

I have fine hair that tangles and breaks easily, so I was excited to receive the Glide Through Detangling Brush by Crave Naturals to try. I had previously seen this product on social media and was intrigued by the brush's unique design. Crave Naturals is a beauty-loving community that offers a high quality, yet affordable, product line in fun, retro packaging.
I love fashion and I love styling pieces multiple ways, so I can save money and closet space. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I have a ton of fun participating in various style challenges and sharing my outfit of the day (#ootd). Colored jeans seem to be making a big comeback this year and the red especially has caught my eye on Instagram and Pintrest. I was fortunate to win a store credit to Boutique Amore from an Instagram contest, so one of the pieces I chose were red jeggings. I was a little worried about how they would look on me, but I was pleasantly surprised at how cute and comfortable they are! They are stretchy like leggings but have stitching, belt loops, and pockets so they look like jeans.

Since Christmas is coming up and we tend to be more focused on family this time of the year, I want to share with you the story of my family. When I mentioned that I was adopted in my first Thankful Thursday Post, several of you expressed an interest in my story, so I thought now would be a good time to share it with you.

I love to read, so when my friend, Ashley (Mixed Bag Ashley), told me about this website called Blogging for Books, I was hooked! I selected this book based on the title, since this is something I struggle with. It is so easy to get caught up in the comparison trap, especially in this day and time of social media's constant presence. I know I suffer from OCD (Obsessive Comparison Disorder) when scrolling through my Facebook and Instagram feed. This book called I'm Happy For You (Sort of...Not Really) by Kay Wills Wyma, addresses how to find contentment in a culture of comparison. To find out more about this book and the author, click HERE.

I was recently introduced to Wicked Good Vibes Apparel Co, when I won a $15 credit to their online shop from a giveaway on Much Most Darling. After receiving my shirt, I loved it so much that I applied to be a Brand Enthusiast and they selected me for the month of December!
