My Favorite Green Fashion Pieces Right Now

A little over a wk ago, I celebrated one year smoke free. That evening I had a little shindig that I called, “Kara’s Favorite Things 1 Year No Smoking Anniversary Celebration” (quite the mouthful, I see, lol). Anywho since cigarettes USED to be one of my favorite things, but no longer are, I had a party with some of my current favorite things. I invited all of my favorite people, served all of my favorite foods & drinks, had décor in all of my favorite patterns,  & we played one of my favorite games. On my invites I requested that everyone wear their favorite color. My favorite color is green, & I was surprised to learn that about 50% of my party guest feel the same. I truly love all shades of green, but my favorites are; mint, kelly green, & emerald. Today I’m sharing some of my favorite finds in my favorite shades of green.

We will start with MINT. I honestly don’t own many mint fashion pieces myself. As you know, I’m quite fair skinned, so I tend to stick to brighter &/or deeper colors that are more complimentary to my skin tone. Nonetheless, I still find mint to be an absolutely beautiful shade of green. One of my favorite nail polishes of all time is Wet-N-Wild’s “I Need A Refresh-Mint” & if I ever have a human child, I love the idea of mint-colored walls for their bedroom, regardless of gender.

Happy One Year Of No Smoking To Me!

Happy one year of no smoking to me! Today I'm going to share a little bit of background on my smoking past, why I decided to quit, how I quit, my trails & tribulations, & how I feel today as a non-smoker!

I DID IT!!!!!!! Today (May 15th, 2017) marks ONE YEAR since I smoked my last cigarette! Shortly after waking today, I walked into the living room, & I saw a trophy that my dear husband, Lorenzo got me to celebrate this achievement. The trophy reads, “Kara Aragon ~ One Year Smoke-Free ~ Champion Of The World”. I started crying happy / proud tears right away, then I realized, OMG I actually made it, & the happy / proud tears continued, then I saw that I had received the “One Year” badge on my “Smoke Free” app, & I cried even more. I am by far the most proud of myself that I’ve ever been in my entire life! Today I’m going to share a little bit of background on my smoking past, why I decided to quit, how I quit, my trails & tribulations, & how I feel today as a non-smoker!
