What a week it has been! Let’s catch up, shall we?

First, let’s chat about the obvious: yes, I am now a brunette and I LOVE IT. More on that on Friday. 

As obvious in the last photo here, I AM ENGAGED! Jeff proposed to me at midnight on Christmas Eve/Christmas and it was just perfect. I am on cloud 9 and can’t wait to start sharing wedding ideas here. 

Another big change in my life over the last month has been that I have transitioned away from eating vegan. I’ll be honest – I feel guilty and ashamed because I went vegan purely for ethical reasons. However…my body was really not happy with me from the beginning until the end. I will spare you the details, but I now know that I thrive on a moderate protein and high fat lifestyle. When I ate strictly paleo for over a year, I felt and looked my absolute best. I still do not consume any dairy products, and I shop for cruelty free cosmetics and clothing. Now to work on my guilt of not eating vegan. If anyone has any advice, or if you’ve done this before, please share your experience with me! I will be sharing an updated health and fitness routine soon as well!

Ok, let’s lighten things up a bit. How fabulous is this cape?! As a part of my wardrobe & style overhaul, I have been gravitating towards slick and chic pieces and this cape fits that description perfectly. I love layering it over plain-Jane outfits and dresses to really spice things up. 

How was your holiday weekend? Any news?
