Happy December 1st! If you have been following along, you may already know we have been in Vail, Colorado this past week with our friends, Elyse and James. It was their first time to Vail and we had the best time showing them around our favorite little ski town.  Minus the fact there is only one ski run open and hardly any snow, I just love this place.  Plus, it’s hard to complain about cozy sweaters, sitting by the fire, and spending the week with your best friends!

Grab your coffee, your computer, sit back and get comfortable because this year’s Cyber sales are not to be missed. As of this weekend, I am in full-on holiday mode and I have a good jump start on my holiday gifting thanks to this past weekend’s sales! Today, I plan to knock out the rest of my list and maybe find a few things for myself.  I have been eyeing these shoes and this bag. It’s all about balance, right? One for me, one for you!  Read more

“Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”-Oprah

I have so many things I have to be thankful for this year. First and foremost, for my family, my health, my puppy girls, and of course, and all of you!

Gift Guide for Him

Anyone else still clueless when it comes what to get the men in their lives? Honestly, I have no issue with all of the gals, but when it comes to my hubs, I always struggle to find the perfect gift. Instead of trying to find gifts the guys will actually like, I enlisted Patrick this year to share 10 of his favorite gifts. All of the gifts are either items he has bought himself this year, received as a gift or are currently on his holiday/birthday (he’s a December baby) wish list.

Shopbop is having a little pre-black Friday sale. What better way to get through your Tuesday than taking a break from work for a little shopping. Let’s be honest, aren’t we all checked out and ready for Turkey day?  I have been following the one for you, one for me gifting method this week. I think today is the perfect time to spoil yourself and maybe check off a few gifts off your list. The Shopbop sale has the best finds for under $200, stocking stuffers, those timeless pieces, like these over the knee boots that never go on sale!

J.Crew Pajamas

Pajamas and the holidays go together like peanut butter and jelly. One of my favorite holiday traditions is opening up one gift on Christmas Eve. Everyone has a present wrapped in the same paper and after dinner we open them up at the same time! Every year for the last 29 years, it had been a pair of new holiday pajamas. I finally caught on to the tradition at about year ten and naturally started adding my favorite pair of holiday pajamas to my wish list. After opening our present as fast as we can, we all immediately run, put them on, grab a mug of hot cocoa, and watch a Home Alone by the fire. It’s by far my favorite day of the year.

I am counting down the days, hours and minutes until we hop on the plane and head to Scottsdale this Friday. This weekend I finished up some last minute shopping, wrapped all of the presents and really got into the holiday spirit. I even braved Northpark yesterday with just about every other person in Dallas, and if I am being honest I kind of love the hustle and bustle of the mall during the holidays. I have been in full on holiday mode since last Friday, so wrapping up work this week is going to be no easy feat. Let the countdown begin!

Gift Guide Under $50

Just when I thought I was on top of ordering gifts this year, I realized today was the last day to get free standard shipping in time for Christmas (at least most companies, thank goodness for Amazon Prime)! How did this happen?

Since I have an idea of what I am getting everyone in my family this year, I am going to place the last of my orders today.

While splurge-worthy gifts are always fun to look at, most of us will be spending between $30-$100 on gifts for our family.  So today I rounded up a few of my favorite gifts under $50 that will make someone giddy.


Heart Stripe Shirt / Bucket Bag / Swell Bottle / Hunter Boot Socks / Framebridge Frame / iPhone Case / Capture Your Style Book / Love Potion Mug / 3 Pack Socks / Woven Basket

We are just fifteen days away from Christmas eve and my little holiday break could not come at a more oportune time. I am ready to unplug and recharge to start the new year feeling inspired.  We will be traveling to Scottsdale to celebrate the holidays with my family and I am feeling extra giddy because my grandparents are coming this year. We have planned a weekend full of  family traditions, like going to Zoo Lights and celebrating my mom and Patrick’s birthdays the day after Christmas. They happen to be one day apart just days before Christmas.

Since I have a few extra gifts to find this year, I decided on gifting really special presents this year. When it comes to finding the “perfect” gift for someone I think something personal makes it extra special .  I have always been a huge fan of the brand, Cuyana (see here and here) and their mission for fewer, better things. This year I am taking on their mantra when it comes to gifting my loved ones.
