My Wishlist

I’m super into Christmas traditions, so while I may be entering my 30’s in 2018, I still love making a Christmas Wishlist every year. When I was younger, on Thanksgiving, my cousins and I would flip through page after page of toy catalogs on Thanksgiving and all sit down with our 64 pack jumbo edition of Crayola crayons and put together a well thought out list of things we REALLY wanted for Christmas to give to our grandparents, parents & […]

DIY Flannel Placemats

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #BoursinCheese #CollectiveBias Holiday entertaining is one of my favorite things about the holiday season. Getting my house decorated, baking, and having good friends over for ornament and gift exchanges is just so much fun for me. One of the major decorations I love during the holiday season, is Tablescapes. Tablescaping is somewhat of a new field for me as we JUST (3 months ago) […]

A Sweet Christmas Treat Basket

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #SweetnSaltyHoliday #CollectiveBias I’m gonna go ahead and be 100% honest with you guys. I LOVE baking. It’s a huge passion of mine, and the holidays are my absolute favorite time of the year because I have an excuse to bake non-stop. On Thanksgiving I always try to make two really fancy side dishes to bring to family gatherings as well as one delicious and pretty […]

Christmas Eve Attire

In an effort to cut down on screen time and spend quality time with my family this year, today’s post is going to be short. Just sharing my #ootd and new Christmas hair! I love these patterned tights with the word love all over them paired with a keyhole circle skirt, black Oxford heels, and a great red bow top from The Limited! I feel super festive for family celebrations! Last night james cut my hair and I LOVE this […]

Is Minted on your wish list this year?

This is a compensated post sponsored by Minted.com, the opinions stated are honest.  I’ve done a lot of posts about giving gifts this holiday season, but have yet to write about the things that I’m hoping for. While, I really do believe it’s not about receiving gifts, it’s really special to open something that someone really put effort into shopping for, because they want to show you that they care! Obviously I always want shoes, clothes and accessories, but aside from […]

Last Minute Gift Ideas for the Family!

I received these products complimentary for review purposes, the opinions stated are honest, unbiased and provided without compensation. I’m notoriously always shopping on Christmas Eve, it’s not that I actually wait until the very last second to buy gifts, it’s just that I really like shopping. Christmas being the season of giving only helps my shopping addiction, so I usually spend the entire week before Christmas at one store or another! This year, I’ve started online shopping and it’s so convenient, […]

Christmas Blondie or Brownie?!

A few weeks ago James bought us a wonderful cookie jar and I have been diligently working to fill it up with goodies! Last night I made Brownies and Christmas Blondies, and both recipes worked out deliciously! They are both great holiday treat ideas for office/classroom parties, and super easy to make!       I actually added about a 1/2 cup chocolate chips to my blondies, because I love chocolate, but that’s not necessary, just another way to make […]

Merry & Bright. Inexpensive Christmas Decor Ideas.

I can’t explain how much I LOVE Christmas. I really let my inner child go nuts around this time of the year, and Christmas decorating is one of the ways I do so. Now, I realize these decorations will only be up for a little over a month in my home, so I don’t see a lot of point in spending a ton of money on decorations. Last year my mother gave us a nice 7 ft. fake tree, and […]

Scrumptious Monday, it rhymes with Sunday, whatevs

So cookie making ran over last night and I wasn’t able to post until today. BUT here we go! I LovE decorating cookies! It’s like one of my favorite things to do, your hands may get messy but it’s well worth a couple food-coloring stained fingernails to have such wonderful creations. Cookie making is simple. Go buy some cookie cutters cause unfortunately I have no tricks on how to avoid that. My recipe for sugar cookies is as follows: Ingredients […]

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Oh Holy Night! I know it’s only been about a week since my last post but it feels like forever! The week of Thanksgiving is always such a fun one cause yes I do Black Friday shop, though this year I missed out on all the good deals since I refused to shop on Thanksgiving evening, and it’s always my step-dads birthday, AND this year was my first with James and obviously Cash’s first Thanksgiving as well! It was so […]
