Life Lately

Hi loves! As you can see- I am redoing my blog layout and have also renamed it since I no longer live in Uptown and Plano Blonde just didn’t have the same ring to it lol. I hope to be able to live up to the “Dear Abby” name answering any questions you have about beauty products, fitness + diet, or even cocktail recipes (as I now work for DIAGEO brands- representing Ketel One, Crown Royal, Captain Morgan, and Smirnoff). 

This past week has been pretty hectic as the Holiday season is very busy for the industry I work in, but it’s also been a very fun week.

Starting out I went to a Holiday Onesie charity party- which was sponsored by Ketel One and Smirnoff. I brought some of my girl friends to help support the brands as well as giving to a good cause! We didn’t want to stay the entire night because the venue was packed- so after 1 or 2 drinks we decided to head to the bars in our onesies. Best Idea Ever. We had a blast running around uptown in our onesies and seeing all the reactions from people as we walked in to the bar. 

Boyfriend came in town for the Holidays so I finally had a date to go out with which was a nice change of pace for me. I typically end up being a hermit on Friday/Saturday nights (unless I’m working an event) mainly because it can be tough on the relationship if he has to worry about me out late at night. The holidays are nice though because we both get some time off to visit each other. 

We went to RA Sushi at the Shops at Legacy and got a little too excited ordering– we started with Edamame and Miso Soup. Then I think Mauricio ordered like 4 different types of rolls and I ordered the Sashimi dinner with a side of steamed veggies. 

For those of you who don’t know what Sashimi is- it’s just the raw fish without the rice around it. It’s not for everyone, but I absolutely LOVE ordering it this way. Salmon & Tuna Sashimi are my favorite. 

Lucky for us our families are friends so for Christmas we celebrated together by enjoying cocktails and yummy treats while playing Cranium (if you haven’t played it- I highly suggest it.. booze makes it way more entertaining though).

Mauricio gifted me a Kate Spade handbag which I’m totally obsessing over, and my sister in law gave me a bunch of new makeup to play with 🙂 I also received a Kate Spade work bag along with a ton of other accessories from Santa Claus … aka my sweet parents.

How did you all spend the Holidays? Get anything fun from Santa? 🙂 Tell me below!
