As a fashionista, the Christmas Holidays are much anticipated. From the Christmas staff party, to New Years, most fashion divas are planning holiday outfits way in advance. With the holidays approaching, it's time to whip out those cute, funny, festive looks to be adorned with a dash of shimmering accessories!

As a child, I hated sweaters, they always seemed to take away from my outfit; however, with such a vast selection of sweaters being offered, the perfect Holiday Sweater has become an essential for me. Pair with the right pieces, the holiday sweater can be the show stopper at any holiday event. Here is my Fashionista Guide to the Holidays:

What I've Learned in 2014

Can you believe we are just a few days away from the beginning of a new year? I cant; and with the holidays right around the corner, the time will certainly fly. I have been in planning mode for 2015 since the beginning of November; mainly because I know and declare that 2015 will be the year that I actualize many of my goals. But before we jump into 2015, here are some lessons I've learnt in 2014.
  1. There is beauty in numbers: there is one thing to have a great idea, to spend endless pennies executing your idea but if no one shows up, your idea is just that. No man is an island and for you to be successful as an entrepreneur (especially a social one) you NEED people. Build a tribe, build relationships and watch your idea unfold!
  2. Complete is better than perfection: while everyone strives for perfection, sometimes its better to just complete a task. Put it out there and see what happens. Waiting around for the perfect timing, all the right resources and the perfect you will result in absolutely nothing.
  3. Have time for YOU: I know you have heard this time and time again but this year especially, I have experienced the danger in not carving out time for me. With weekends consumed with my daughter, volunteering, running my business and helping my best friend launch a new business; I have given myself no breaks and in response to that, my body has broken down more than twice! 
Shameless Plug: for those of you that haven't had a chance as yet to check us out, Jazzy Moms is now live, first event held and the community is growing! I would like to hear your feedback on ways to improve going forward. Looking for the perfect way to make me smile this holiday? Head over to my Facebook page, like, share and spread with other moms throughout the world!

2014 has been great to me and I vow to make 2015 an even better one. 
With the launch of my new business Jazzy Moms, 
my blog and my passion to reach the world, I see only success. 
I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Much Love and Happiness
Anni, xoxo 

Rediscover Your Wardrobe

Every morning I spend at least 15 minutes in my closet assessing my wardrobe with the resulting thought " I really need a new wardrobe!" For most women, including me, expanding your wardrobe is the inevitable and most times, we tend to discover closet favorites that are repeated more often than other pieces. Whenever there is a sale or a new trend, I quickly grab my credit card and get to spending, only to realize that the black dress from five years ago, will be worn at least twice this month.

So just my luck, I stumble across The Every Girl  30 Days of Wearing Your Wardrobe Challenge. "For this challenge, readers are encouraged to fall in love with their closet all over again; mix and match classic staples with our old flames. Spend 30 days shopping free—our closets are deeper than we think and we need to flex our left brain by getting creative! Accessories (jewelry, shoes and outerwear) are free reign, but we want you to try and maximize the clothes you’ve already cultivated."

Today is day 3 of the challenge and it has been so exciting rediscovering old favorites and mixing them with newbies that haven't had the tags removed as yet! Here's a look at my day one.

Join me for the next 25 days as I rediscover and find new ways to create and enhance my wardrobe! Be sure to include the hashtag #TEG30daychallenge and share your style tips with us.
