New Year, New Friends

I could not have asked for a better way to start the new year than the way 2016 is beginning. I spent the last few days of 2015 with family and friends before I embarked on my journey to Canada to begin my rehearsals for Disney Cruise. (side note I have been trying to figure out internet/data stuff so a video up this week promise!)

As I reflect on this past year, one thing I am really appreciative of is the growth of friendships I had. Yes sometimes you have to let old friendships die to make room for new ones, especially ones that are toxic, but I notice we don’t really take the time to enjoy and acknowledge the friendships we cultivate in our later years.


Crystal of Sometimes Glam has been one of the major reasons I had to reassess my whole “No New Friends” policy. Growing up, women are told often that being friends with other women is very difficult because women can be “catty, gossipy, and just plain old mean-y.” Fortunately Crystal has been an awesome “new friend” to my already solid lot and I couldn’t have been happier to collaborate with her for New Years!


What better brand to represent new beginnings than Modamix? With the rebirth of their thriving brand, they truly carry all the garments for every new moment in your life. This sequins dress immediately caught my eye to set the year of with a bang. Paired with a glittery sequin jacket and a simply black pump I felt renewed and ready to take on 2016 pedal to the metal. The ombre detail in this short sleeve dress really makes the black details pop and had a little baggy allowance for when you finally get to eat your prosperity meal of greens and pea’s.

Crystals outfit really took the cake for me, head to toe Modamix I swooned over her color combo of black, gold, and deep red. You can check out more of her awesome outfit on her blog  Sometimes Glam. Shop the look below!
