Christmas Loot!

I really love the holidays. This is my first holiday without my family and I was a little bummed but practically talked with my mom, aunts, cousins and siblings over the phone all day so it wasn't so bad.
Everyone received my gifts in time. I received some awesome gifts and didn't get a tree this year but decorated my apartment and cooked a lovely Christmas dinner for me and my friend Alicia.
Merry Christmas Everyone.
I'm blessed to have such awesome family, friends and followers!

I got these lovely green suede Nine West Pumps...can't wait to wear these bad boys!


I've been craving this book and got it as a gift YAY! 
I'm so inlove with this CD! Currently Man down and Raining Men are my favorites!
Also got some great scents too. This one, Omni Bvlgari is one of my favorites!

I got tons of cocktail rings from one of my good friends and Secret Santa! She has awesome taste! 


Love the body armor necklace from ASOS!

 Also got this couch for myself...Merry Christmas to me...I love this thing!



 My Outfit
Leggings: American Apparel
Shoes: Nine West Boutique 9
Sweater: Thifted
Dangle Earrings: Bakers (Gifted)

Home Made Peach Pie!

Here's the Christmas Dinner I cooked for me and my friend Alicia.
On the menu: Rosemary and Lemon Roasted Chicken, Red Dill Potato Salad, Candied Yams, Baked Mac and Cheese, Jasmine Rice and Collard Greens with a Peach Pie for dessert!
  We spent the day talking, watching movies, eating and drinking copious amounts of wine.
Awesome Christmas!


So what was your favorite gift this Christmas and why? Mine was definitely my new couch!

Merry Christmas to all!

XOXO
Monroe

Glad you made out okay without physically being with your family, the food and pie look yummy! I lucked out of cooking this year (although I have to cook tomorrow) and went hoping around to dif. family members houses stealing left overs : ) I'd have to say my fav gift was my new camera! Now I can take proper blog pics. Yay me! And Yay for the blizzard coming our way...no work monday!!

  8. I too have been decorating my house, or atleast trying. It's terribly difficult as I have cream tiles and canary yellow walls and Mr. Wright doesn't want to paint!! I wish I had the ease of hardwood floors and eggplant walls!!
