If you are looking to send someone a gift basket especially with kiddos this is a great idea. Chef'd and Paper Mart teamed up for the 12 Days of Sweets. We got to test it all out and I'm happy to say we LOVED it! There are two ways you can use this, I'll talk about those more later. But what I will say is Chef'd makes baking incredible easy and I am all about EASY during the holidays. This kit is simple and easy to follow, making it perfect for the novice baker LIKE ME as well as the expert. And using the Paper Mart products makes it easy to box up your cookies as a gift or display them nicely for your Christmas guests.
OMG this is such an adult dress. Adulting has it's downfalls but it also has it perks, like trading in the youthful dresses for some chic and classic looks. And there is nothing more classic than this dress. And if your like me it might be time to upgrade your little black dress selection. I hardly wear dresses so the ones I did have were more Vegas and less 30ish, if you know what I mean. None the less I found this little number for $100 at Nordstrom and I am digging the midi cut!
I have been getting some questions about my Christmas decor so I decided to share a not so quick snapshot of our house. I went on a real Christmas decor binge this year and got ALOT of new stuff. I feel like I'm the Christmas decor expert right now as I think I have went to every store in town. I will share with you some of my favorite items as well as some places to go scope out if you are still looking for some new Christmas items.
Let me introduce you to my "Magician Jacket" as my husband calls it. I picked this blazer up recently to wear during the holidays and I couldn't think of a more festive jacket. The minute I walked into Anthropologie and saw this this green jacket I was drawn to it. I kept going back to it over and over trying to justify buying it. I finally took it to the dressing room and once I put it on it was game over. This little baby was going home with me.
Every year I do my Christmas round up. Here are my picks for men and women. I love shopping for presents and I try to come up with gifts that everyone will love. Obviously coming up with gift ideas for girls is easier for me than guys (why are guy gifts so hard) but I found a few cool things this year for all those men in your lives.
A few weeks ago we ventured out in our neighborhood to have my Mom snap some family pictures for our Christmas cards. So spoiler alert these are the outfits in our Christmas cards! When I was walking out the house Jay commented on my sweater sleeves and asked if the 70's were back? I responded that in fact they are when it comes to sleeves. The bigger the bell sleeve the better the sweater. This isn't the first dig my hubby has done on my fashion I showed him a green jacket I bought last week and he asked me if I was planning on becoming a magician. Clearly that jacket needs a blog post based on my husbands response!
Because all the stores seems to have skipped over Thanksgiving I decided to too. I love Thanksgiving it is actually my favorite holiday, but there is only so much turkey decorations one can have. I was shocked to see in Hobby Lobby had their Christmas stuff was already 50% off. So because Christmas decorating has begun (for some) I decided to do a quick little Christmas decor post. I have been a little MIA on the blog. So this is a good post to get me in the Christmas and blogging mood. I am posting today about my Mom's dining room Christmas decor that I am in love with!
Happy Friday! This week has went by so fast with Halloween, but also slow at the same time. My Husband has been working a weird swing shift so it has been just Leo and I for dinner and bedtime this entire week. I was getting quite bored so last night we decided it was time to go out for a mother son date. I did dress up a bit but this outfit did not make the cut for our date. However, this outfit did make the cut for our double date that we had last weekend.
Leo is a pretty independent player. I think a lot has to do with his personality but I also think that I try and have quite a few little activity stations at home for him to rotate through. I am thankful to have quite a few mommy friends and a few of them are ex teachers. They are the best kind of mom friends cause they constantly give me ideas on how to entertain my child. Activities are the key to keeping your kid busy at home. Here are 5 activities that are our jam right now.
So occasional via instagram, facebook, and email I get questions regarding my personal life. I am always happy to share little glimpse into my personal life but I hate boring people with the details. I feel like people come here to read about fashion, food, healthy living, and kid stuff. Not really to hear what I'm up to. But I still kept getting questions about my personal life so I thought I would share a few little tidbits with you.
