Bringing in the New Year

January 7, 2014

I know I’m having a late start to 2014, I’ve spent all of it in bed with flu meds and tea but I thought I should let you know I’m alive. I got a little bit of shopping done yesterday just to make myself feel like a part of the human race again, and I got dressed up in the hopes that the saying “If you look good, you feel good” would prove true. It does! While I don’t have an outfit post for you, I thought I would share some of my Christmas goodies just to get back to the swing of blogging.

I buy myself Christmas and birthday gifts, a habit that will always assure my membership to Shopaholics Annonymous, because rather than depending on other people to give me what I really want, I prefer buying it for myself. It just feel so satisfying, you know? So, to reward myself for 2013, I purchased my first ever Michael Kors bag: a studded Selma in Dark Khaki. I’ve been lusting over the Selma for ages and took advantage of the free shipping deal over at NeimanMarcus.com. I received my bag in just 3 days and it was in perfect condition. The bag is beautiful in person, super sturdy and  functional, and looks great with everything. I am absolutely in love!

The man had a shopping spree at Fab and got me an assortment of cool stuff. Apart from the Naked 3 palette and YSL Babydoll mascara on my Sephora wish list, he got me a set of  beautiful Bdellium make up brushes, a houndstooth print tote with leather straps and an amazing Buck Deer Trophy head from Cardboard Safari.

The brushes are cruelty free and super soft, they feel extremely luxurious and work beautifully, I don’t want to use them because they’re just so fancy!

The trophy head is massive in person and has to be the coolest thing in my apartment right now.

My mom loved my Weesha necklace so much she decided to get me one in 22k gold, I like wearing them together although I do not like weirdos staring at my chest and then mispronouncing my name ( Lu-ah-nee?). I love her for being so thoughtful, I know this necklace is something I will cherish forever.

Ok, so Leia isn’t a Christmas gift but when I was thinking about what I’m most grateful for in 2013, I tear up at the memory of up finally adopting her. It’s been such a roller coaster with this bunny rabbit, I still can’t believe she was on death row and I’m so grateful for having had Arya (the other dog we fostered) and her in our lives. She puts a smile on our faces everyday and sometimes I feel like she chose us. To me, she just represents the massive amount of love I have in my life, especially between the man and I. Being her human parents has made us closer and one big family. So yeah,  I’m going to end my first post for 2014 with this skinny little fur ball of love <3

I wish us all the best for 2014, but most of all I wish us love. I hope we learn to love ourselves more, and I hope we’re more open to letting love in, even if it threatens to break us in the end.

Thank you for continuing to be a part of Weesha’s World!



  • Great post and I also love your MK handbag. Good to know you’re feeling much better and looking forward to Slaying 2014; Happy & Healthy.

    • thank you! I sure am, thanks for reading and leaving me such a lovely comment 🙂

  • Love the MK bag! I’ve noticed you seem to get the flu/colds a lot. Seems so odd when you live in a hot climate, LOL. I always think of the flu as a cold climate thing. x

    • thanks hun! I always fall sick when the weather changes 🙁 yesterday at the clinic, the doctor made me do a bunch of blood tests so hopefully we ‘ll find out why
