    Stocking Stuffer Ideas

    Who doesn’t love getting gifts in their stocking? Do you check your stocking first or last? I usually go to my stocking after I’ve finished opening up my gifts under the tree. Stocking stuffers are typically smaller gifts that can fit inside a stocking obviously, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they are cheaper gifts. It just depends on what you and your family like to do. They can be small gifts that are also low in cost such as socks, or small in size only and be quite expensive like a nice pair of earrings. I don’t often do gift guides because I feel like most other bloggers out there do…

    String Bean & Beet Salad

    I think I’ve mentioned it on here before but I love beets and I haven’t always loved them. In fact, for a long time I wanted to like them and just didn’t. I’d see them at places like buffets and always think to myself – they look good I wish I liked them. I’d always try them again just in case my taste buds changed and I just couldn’t get in to them. Then suddenly a few years ago I tried them again in a salad and there was no turning back. I mostly eat them in salads or sometimes alone with just some feta. For today’s post I’m sharing a…

    Christmas Garland

    I’ve always wanted garland with lights around my house so when I moved in to my townhouse and had a good amount of visible bannister I knew I had the perfect opportunity. The lighted garland that I saw at Costco required an outlet so that didn’t work for me, but I found strings of tiny LED lights in the same aisle that are battery operated. So I decided to get that and then buy regular garland and combine the two. Then, I went to Michael’s and guys, garland is expensive! Originally I wanted the kind of garland that looks like real fir or pine or whatever you call it, but…

    Green Corset Waist Sweater Dress

    How was your weekend? Mine was pretty busy and if you follow my Instagram stories then you have an idea of how busy I was – plus I ended the weekend not feeling 100%. So this post is going to be quick (since I write my posts ahead of time almost all of the time) so I can get to bed and get a good night’s sleep! When this post goes live, hopefully I am feeling refreshed and ready to take on the new week! I wore this green corset waist sweater dress to work last week and it is the perfect sweater dress for the holiday season. It is…

    Blue & White Striped Belted Top

    How is your weekend going so far? My weekend has been really productive so far and hopefully I get a lot more done from my to-do list. Yesterday was a busy, long day and I also woke up early yesterday for a photoshoot so I’m hoping that despite a busy day today I have some time to relax before work tomorrow. Today I’m sharing an outfit I wore last weekend. I love blue and white together, stripes, and belted tops are always flattering as they cinch the waist. So when I saw this top early in the fall and I felt how great the quality was with the thick material,…

    Ceramic Vintage Christmas Tree

    Christmas is my favorite time of year. I love all the decorations, music, and cheeriness of the season. Not often am I thinking about the holiday season in August, though! However, back in August I saw an event on Facebook for vintage Christmas trees at a ceramic studio nearby. The first date for the event was already sold out, so I acted quick (even though it was August) and reserved spots for me and a friend for October. I’m so glad we decided to go because the process was fun and the result was so pretty! I love the look of these old-school, vintage Christmas trees. They’re always advertised as…

    November 2018 Favorites

    It’s the last day of November! How?! I felt like it was the beginning of November when Thanksgiving was around the corner and now we’re at the very end. As usual, I’ve rounded up some things I loved this month that made it into my monthly favorites. First up, I know everyone goes crazy for the Starbucks holiday cups but they really are so pretty. Here are shots of 2 of the designs. They just make me happy! Speaking about holiday, I put up my Christmas tree the weekend before Thanksgiving. Usually I wait until the day after but I was busy all Thanksgiving weekend so I did it early. I…

    #fbf Mums

    For this flashback Friday I thought it’d be nice to revisit fall since we’re in the midst of holiday and winter content now. Here’s a look of a pot of multicolor mums I got back in October. When I got the plant it was just buds so I was pleasantly surprised when I found out they were multicolor blooms! I love the mix of pink, red, and orange. So pretty! Sadly my mums are no longer and not because it got cold. The snow we got a few weeks ago crushed them and basically broke my poor plant in half! Have a great Friday!
