Happy New Year everyone. I love shoes. Clearly. So I have picked out some of my favorites for the upcoming year. Some are classic, like the Jack Rogers pair in #3, but I think all of them will serve a great purpose. If you would like to check them out, click on the brand in #’s 2-7 just above. I have not been able to find anywhere to buy those ADORABLE leopard nike’s in #1, so if you have a link let me know!

I’m sure most, if not all of us made some sort of exercise resolution. Those leopard nike’s (#1) will keep you looking cute at the gym. I’m sure they will get a million compliments.

I used to be SO scared of those sneakers with wedges, but these Michael Kors ones (#2) are perfect. You can definitely wear them with jeans and dress them up a little bit.

Jack Rogers has my heart. I love every pair of their sandals. These gold (#3) Navajo’s are perfect for the transition from spring to summer. Take them to the beach OR wear them to work.

Ok, these Sam Edelman (#4) Gigi sandals come in a million colors. Not really, but a lot. I love the black ones, because they are super versatile. Paint your toenails a fierce pink and you’re ready to go!

I saw these Minnie Green (#5) loafers on Courtney Kerr’s blog & i’m obsessed with them. Aren’t the lions so cute?!

Sperry’s are classic. ROSE GOLD (#6)?!?! Do I really have to say anymore?

Cap-toe flats are so fun! These black ones (#7) will go with a lot, plus the gold cap is perfect for a little dressier touch!

What are your favorite shoes for the new year? Let me know!!! :)


GUEST posting for me today is the lovely Paige! I’m so thankful for her, because she has helped me learn the ropes of this whole blogging thing! She has an AWESOME blog, so be sure to stop by and say hey for me! :) AND I have NO clue about marriage, so she’s here to tell you all about it! Take it away Paige!

Hellooooo glittery readers! My name is Paige and I blog at Eloping Stethoscope where I talk about all the newlywed misadventures my husband and I experience and all of my embarrassing nursing moments! And there are a lot of them, trust me.

But today, I’m guest posting for one of the most awesome bloggers in the blog world because for some reason she asked for guest posts. I really actually have no idea why. I assume she’s going on a secret mission.
Since I’m a newlywed of 7 months, I have obviously wracked up some truly brilliant marriage advice. 

This is me and my awesome husband Cody, henceforth known as Cody the Awesome.
and I am going to tell you why having him around is awesome. In list form, because who doesn’t like lists?
Reason Number 1 that he’s awesome is that when I have a headache and am generally acting pitiful and pathetic, pills magically appear in my hand. 
Now, this isn’t really magic, it’s Cody the Awesome bringing me the magic headache taking away pills!
Reason Number 2 is that when the super glue gets mad at you and glues itself shut,
he uses his teeth to open it
and when that doesn’t work
Cody the Awesome uses pliers
because for some reason, my hands didn’t want to make the pliers work right.
Reason Number 3 is that he cooks. Girls, always find a man that cooks. He makes some really awesome stuff. Like Bacon Chicken Ranch Pasta.
And Enchiladas, which happen to be what we had on our wedding night.

Reason Number 4 is that whenever my car messes up, he’s around to fix it. So I don’t have to beg the guys at Autozone anymore! Yay!
Reason Number 5 is that when it’s time for that time of the month he actually puts up with all the whining and moaning that I do. See? He really is awesome.
Number 6 is that I literally have my best friend sleeping over every night. And sometimes, there’s cookies involved.
Number 7 would have to be that he puts up with my crazy family…and trust me, they are crazy. So crazy, that I can’t even post about them on the internet.

Left: Me and a Cousin, Middle: Me and Cody, Right: My brother’s photobomb

Number 8 is that he makes me laugh until I cry. Literally. He’s one of the funniest people I know. See Exhibit 1 and Exhibit 2.
Number 9 is that Cody the Awesome is more sarcastic than I am so my sarcastic comments don’t hurt him very much.
The number 10 reason that he’s awesome is I never have to worry about finding someone to take home.

So, see? Being married really is awesome! You just have to look past all the hair around your bathroom sink, jeans thrown on the floor and shaving cream spots on the mirror to find all the really amazing stuff!

Guest posts are SO fun! Thank you so much Paige for your insight into marriage. And thank you SO much for guest posting!
