Instamix: New Job, Sweet Surprise & Xmas Shopping

Hey everyone. I’m sure I’m not the only one who felt a little off this past weekend, so had a pretty lay-low weekend.

First week of job went well – lots to learn and catch-up but from the looks at new company, it’s going to be a fun learning experience, if anything. =)

Most tragic thing that happened on Friday and all I could think of was why did it? The city was close to my sister’s place in CT and I asked my sister to hug my nephew extra tight that day. My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by this awful incident.

When I got home after gym, I received this awesome surprise from dear blogger friend, Kelly at Alterations Needed. She had asked me which city do I feel like I belong and I didn’t know why until I saw the necklace – a map of DC – very appropriate and so intricate too. Also, she gave me a little macaron trinket box to go with the necklace. How did she know I love macaron – is it that obvious? LOL – thank you so much girl!

Next day, hung out with my good friend, Timur, and we celebrated Leo’s bday and went xmas shopping for most of the day. Really got to know the city of Arlington/Clarendon pretty well now.

Stopped by Red Mango for a little shopping break treat.

Rocking these holiday sparkly nails for the week – Essie’s Leading Lady with Revlon’s Sequin on tips.

I can’t believe Xmas is right around the corner. I still need to wrap gifts and pack for Philly this weekend. Hope you all have a great Monday!
