Today I am wearing this gold heart necklace I got for free in Forever XXI! The store was giving them out on Black Friday, so I of course snatched one very quickly before they ran out. I wasn't sure if I liked it at first, but now I am in love with it!

The most special thing of this necklace is that it has a mirror and some lip balm in it. This necklace is something I would have LOVED when i was a little girl (I love it now too though); so when I see this necklace, I think of all the wonderful times I had as a child. Plus, I love that I can moisturize my lips anywhere I go... weeee!

Do you have any accessories that have hidden makeup items in it?

My Choice of Outfit of the Week - Sweet Hearts

Outfit of the Week - The Queen of Wanderlust
This week's outfit of the week goes to Sarah from The Queen of Wanderlust. I absolutely love this simple yet cute outfit she made! I love how sweet her heart cardi looks with this colorful blue dress. Plus, isn't this color just fabulous on her? I also like how she belted the entire look which gives her that hourglass shape. Good job Sarah!

My boyfriend and I saw a pair of homeless kitties today and I felt so so sorry for them. I decided to give them a can of tuna which they seemed to just gobble up. It was so nice to see them so happy :)

Where: Had a delicious Thanksgiving dinner at home with my boyfriend.

Comments:
Thanksgiving is always a special holiday for me because I get to eat, eat, and eat some more. I looooovveee eating, it's so much fun! This year however, I was too busy to do a real big Thanksgiving dinner. Instead, we just had a humble little dinner consisting of a turkey breast and some mashed potatoes.

Although we didn't have all the bunches of food we usually have for Thanksgiving dinner, I still had a wonderful time sharing this holiday with my boyfriend. There are so many things I am grateful for... I'm especially grateful for my family, my friends, my boyfriend, and all of you lovely readers. Thanks for all your support and kindness!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! What are you thankful for this year?
