1. Holiday Gift Guide

    neutrals-holiday-giftguide-2

    How pretty is this color palette?! I am just in love with winter whites and neutrals, so I kept that in mind while creating this fabulous gift guide. First of all, I instagrammed my new CALPAK luggage over Thanksgiving and it was such a hit that I had to include it. The marble design is seriously amazing, while I love the functionality of the bag… it’s the perfect gift for your traveler friends and a great price of $125 for a carry-on. Other great traveler-friendly gifts are the “Wash Me” Bag to keep dirty laundry in tact while on the road, and the T3 “Mini” Set – a mini hairdryer and flatiron, taking up less precious space in your suitcase! Next – this time of year my social calendar is exploding so a few beauty updates like this Bronzer and & Strobe Powder set, which gives you that flattering glow even one the coldest days, is a must. Then lastly, who doesn’t love a fresh set of cozy winter knits this time of year?! GAP has great gloves and slippers in the cutest designs. Shop all of my picks below!

    After sharing my Holiday Home Tour I had to share a closer look at my gorgeous Holiday Bar Cart display! A bar cart is such an easy way to transform a party from average to festive. Welcome guests with a bar cart right at your entrance filled with a display of welcome drinks, or pull up your bar cart alongside your couch for an added side table display of nutcrackers and mini pine trees. By placing this one in my family room, I had a fab new space to display an array of gold and glittery Holiday pieces. You probably remember these…

    I am so excited to be featured on MarthaStewart.com today sharing a beautiful Thanksgiving Table! Check out the story that she so kindly named “You’ll Want a Seat at This Elegant Thanksgiving Table”. As a follow up to the post, I wanted to share the steps for how I created the lush centerpiece {which is especially perfect for those of you needing a last minute idea for your table!}. The idea for this table started because I wanted to use flowers but didn’t want todo any ‘arranging’. Meanwhile pre-made arrangements from the grocery can look tacky, while professional ones from the florist can be…

    I am a serious lover of coffee and have been a longtime lover of my Keurig® brewer as a result. So when Keurig Green Mountain® asked me to create a sponsored post for the holidays, I was immediately on board. All opinions are 100% my own because I am a loyal {and daily} user. I use my Keurig® brewer to kick start my day with the kids, and for parties, it’s my go-to for warm after dinner drinks {my guests have been loving my pumpkin spice mixes and holiday brews as of late!!}. No matter the day, or hour, coffee is ready in the touch…
