She’s ready for 2012

She’s ready for 2012
January 3, 2012 Alison Faulkner

Hello! I hope your holidays were awesome! I think I had a post-holiday crash. I’ve been hanging with family, watching A LOT of movies and just staring at my messy house wondering how it will ever be clean again. I have a nagging feeling it will involve some sort of effort on my part.

As for the above picture, I just really wanted to show you my new phone case. I got it for my stocking. Oh, and check out my new accessories!

My unbelievably talented artist friend Mandy sent me some goodies from her Etsy shop, Ila’s Garden. As always, I’m dying over her handwork. She is so precise with everything she does.

I loved all my accessories SO MUCH I even modeled some for you…and Mandy. I thought the accessories were so cute I didn’t bother putting on makeup or anything. You’re welcome.

And this is actually a headband, but I kind of love it worn like this too.

Go check out Ila’s Garden!
Mandy graduated with a degree in art, so she charges WAAAYYYY too little for her amazing work. Haha, snatch some up before I force her to raise her prices.

And in other news, I decided to keep my goals for 2012 pretty simple and attainable. I posted this on instagram (@thealisonshow) but here it is if you aren’t on there!

A goal not written is only a wish.

Like my Dad always says, “A goal not written is only a wish! If it’s to be, it’s up to me!”

Happy 2012,

    I feel like "Watch Netflix" is a goal worthy of all of us. Esp. if it includes watching anything featuring David Boreanaz or sitcoms from the 1980's. Which of course, it does.
