According to the news, Dallas is about to get hit with an “arctic blast” tonight. Not really sure what that means, but I know a few things are for sure; I will be lighting a fire, making one of my winter soup recipes and wrapping up in comfy pjs and a blanket. Nothing gets me more in the holiday spirit than a cold winter night. Anyone else still adjusting to this whole pitch black at 5:30 thing? I am definitely not loving the shorter days but my sleep game has been on point.
The beginning of December means only one thing; holiday parties. I never want to show up empty handed so I rounded up a few of my favorite hostess gifts just in time for the celebration to begin. I love putting together a little package, whether it be a bottle of wine and a cute opener tied to the top, or a candle with a match box; these small gifts will be a huge hit!

Let’s face it, looking beautiful on the outside can be hard work. The older I get the more products I feel like I need.
I will be honest, I hate spending money on beauty products, but I also love having all the things. Good shampoo and conditioner makes or breaks a good hair day, moisturizer keeps your skin feeling soft, and those magic serums do wonders on fine lines. All that being said, this time of the year is perfect to stock up on all your favorite products (or even put them on your wish list).

We all know the men in our life can be tricky to shop for, so today I enlisted my husband to created his ultimate wish list. What you probably do not know is that he loves to online shop (but never in the store). He is the best at doing his research and finding new-to-me brands. It is always fun when I see a brand he has been wearing for years on my favorite retailer’s sites. One of these brands is Mizzen and Main. These dress shirts are machine washable and made of dry fit material. So cool, right?

Our lights are up, our stockings are out (but not hung just yet), the Christmas candles are burning, and I am sipping on my favorite Holiday flavored Nespresso this morning gearing up to check everyone off my list during Cyber Monday. Does anyone else think work should be cancelled between Thanksgiving and New Years? I have a feeling I am not alone in this, but for most of us we are back at our desks today after a great long weekend with family and friends. Make sure to take a break today and get in little shopping because there are so many great sales you do not want to miss! Head to the bottom of this post for all my favorite Cyber Monday steals and deals!
One of my favorite things to do during the holidays is support small and local businesses. I love the personalized touch small shops do to make their guests and shoppers feel extra special. Whether it be a hand written note or pretty wrapping, my favorite small shops go the extra mile. Don’t get me wrong, the ease of a one-stop shop like Nordstrom or Amazon is great, but there is something special about supporting those in your community.
