December 2, 2016

The holidays are here, which means holiday parties are, as well! Today I’m sharing a super easy and fun holiday punch recipe my family has used for years! I love a good sherbet punch and this one is a no fail, easy crowd pleaser. Follow the simple recipe + steps below & let me know if you try it!

Cranberry Shrub

1 48-ounce bottle cranberry juice

2 46-ounce cans pineapple juice

Lemon, orange, or pineapple sherbet

Mix juices thoroughly. Pour into individual glasses and add a scoop of sherbet. Serve immediately. To make into a punch, add 1 quart lemon-lime soda to every gallon of shrub. I served my punch in a sugar rimmed glass for that extra added touch! Cheers and enjoy!

COZY CHIC

November 30, 2016

TOP ( I HAVE EVERY COLOR-GREAT BASIC!)| LEGGINGS | SHOES | SCARF (COMES IN 4 COLORS!)| BAG (SIMILAR HERE & HERE) | SUNNIES | RING | EARRINGS | LIPSTICK (SIN)

We’re back in Houston and I don’t think I’ve ever been happier about our warmer winter weather than I am after spending a snowy, toooo cold 12 days in Utah! Truman literally started stripping down as soon as we got in the car and was so happy to not have to wear alll the layers!  Since I don’t have to wear a jacket most days, I love getting my winter look by accessorizing with items like scarfs and booties to dress for the season. I found this basic top at Nordstrom and bought it in every single color available because it’s just that great! They are sooo cozy, soft, flattering, & affordable! I also picked up a bunch of cute scarfs from the Nordstrom trend section ( here, here, & here) and love that you can mix and match them to any basic outfit. I try and stick to pieces that I can easily throw on and create a chic and simple look. Simply add a top knot, bold lip, and fun sunnies and you are set! 😉 Now that we are home, we are busy unpacking, doing laundry, and excited to have my mama visiting for the week! I love the holiday season and love how much effort our families make to spend as much time as possible with us! We will be spending the evening in with some takeout and lots of girls time catching up and writing our to do lists because tomorrow it will definitely be a fun filled day celebrating my BIRTHDAY!  Ahhh…I’m getting old! Have a good night, loves!

Wit & Wonder Gift Guide With Nordstrom

November 17, 2016

img_0210

SWEATER (SIMILAR)| TOP | LEGGINGS (THE BEST LEGGINGS!!) | BEANIE | RING | LIPSTICK (ANGEL)

GIFTS: DONUT DISTURB PILLOW  (ALSO LOVE THIS ONE!)| MONOGRAM BLANKET | CANDLE SET | MUGS | WATER BOTTLE

Can you believe Thanksgiving is NEXT week?! Meaning Christmas is also right around the corner! I don’t know about you guys, but I hate last minute holiday shopping. That’s why I’ve teamed up with Nordstrom to share some holiday gifts ideas to make your gift searching a little bit easier! Are you familiar with Nordstrom‘s line “Wit & Wonder“? It’s darling! Almost all of the gifts I’m sharing today are from this line. They have the CUTEST fun gifts! I was able to find a little something for some special ladies in my life and not break the budget! I love that Nordstrom is a one stop spot for everything- especially when it comes to holiday shopping! I can always find something there for everyone on my list and know without a doubt, they will love it! 

First of all.. THIS BEANIE! I’m obsessed. It’s so, so darling and helllllo sequins (everything with sequins is waaay better, am I right?!)! It would be perfect as a gift or as a gift for yourself 😉 Going along with the sequins… I love these sweaters! I have a couple of these sweaters + a shirt that my mom has given me as gifts. She got me on this Bow and Drape train a while ago! They are the cutest sweaters and shirts at low prices, yet pack a punch in personality! They are super cozy and make for a seriously awesome gift that any girl would love, I promise! Next, this water bottle is perfect for the fitness lover friend in your life! I mean, it’s so cute right?! (And we have to admit, anything with the word “pizza” is appealing in soo many ways, haha) I have this cooler tote from the same brand that I love using in the summer for pool dates, which would be a perfect gift, as well! I’m in love with this monogram blanket (so soft!) + mug set  as a gift idea, too! I honestly can not get over how perfect they are and the prices… blow me away at how affordable they are!  I mean a quality monogram blanket for UNDER $40? Insane! Lastly, this candle set is amazing. I am a hugeeee candle lover and these are some of my favorites! This whole set is only $32 (such a steal!). All of these gifts I’ve shared are under $70 (most under $50!), so you won’t be breaking the budget and in turn, can pick up some of this stuff for yourself, too 😉 Holiday gifts don’t have to be expensive to be awesome. Nordstrom has gifts for all price points, including those of us on a budget. Get creative and gift something FUN this year!  Also, if my sisters are reading this…sorry in advance for spoiling some surprises 😉  Thanks for reading, Loves! And happy holiday shopping! XOXO
