The stockings were hung by the chimney with care

Tired of the over abundance of gift guides yet? Yeah, me too... so I like to think of this as more of a round up of my favorite fun pieces to find wrapped in "Santa Paper" in my stocking on Christmas morning. Feel free to play along!




If you're not totally over all the gift guides, I also rounded up some holiday party fashion here and what was in my letter to Santa here. Happy Shopping! Fa la la la la la la la LA! 

Believe it or not, it does get pretty chilly this time of year and sometimes even downright cold in the sunshine state as we head into winter and this beanie is too darling to pass up. 

A classic pair of black studs go with any outfit whether dressy or cozy athleisure, and they'll never go out of style. 

Lipstick to go? Yes please! How darling are these MAC Minis that fit in even the smallest clutch for a night out. 

Traveling is hands down my favorite pastime, and getting there should be half the fun! Start out with a chic passport holder, stay hydrated on the plane with this cute insulated travel bottle, and restore your skin once you get to the hotel with these $5 eye masks. 

Going to a party? This glittery coaster set make the perfect hostess gift! 

A cute idea to have sticking out of the top of the stocking is to pick up the mini bottles of La Marca Prosecco (found at Target or liquor stores), and tie a straw to them for instant bubbles. Santa does get me! 
Treating someone to their morning cup of coffee is always a great idea, and Starbucks gift cards can be easily loaded onto their app to use towards collecting more coveted gold stars.

Florida Snow

Another festive weekend has come and gone, and the countdown to Christmas is officially on! It was the perfect re-charge, and I love watching the wonder in Lil' Miss' eyes as she takes it all in. Such a fun stage!


After a super busy week, I fully enjoyed a relaxing night in with Christmas lights, bubbles, and Netflix. On Saturday, we took Lil' Miss to Downtown Celebration for some outdoor fun with live music, ice skating, Christmas light peeping, and even some Florida "snow". If you're in Central Florida or on vacation at Disney and Universal this time of year, it's a must-do in the evening. Snow showers start at 6:00 pm and continue every hour on the hour.

Layered in Ruffles

I love little fun details, and as soon as I saw this top while shopping last week I fell for the peak of ruffles layered underneath the top. It's also the perfect amount of warmth for our cold front coming through, and pairs great with your favorite jeans or leggings. Bonus points for it being long enough for leggings... always a win. I found this top in store, and of course can't find it online. However, I did find the exact top in the plus size version as well as a few similar pieces all of which I've linked to below.

Jingle All the Way

We're officially in the season of all things celebration. Whether it's a family shindig, your office Christmas party, or ringing in the New Year I've got you covered. I can't resist all things sparkly, especially this time of year. So bring on all the shiny things and sequins, more is more!




Letters to Santa

We are officially less than a month away from the big guy making his way down the chimney... craziness! My heart is full after a fun Thanksgiving weekend with the fam, crossing LOTS of my Christmas shopping list, and decking the halls for this weekend's annual Christmas party. Lil' miss helped decorate for the first time which was beyond adorable. I'm just glad she hasn't pulled anything off the tree yet...


*My little fam on Thanksgiving - yes I'm twinning with my girl*

Her Dress {Less than $10 + Free Shipping}


Yesterday, we made our annual trip to the Christmas tree farm with friends where Lil' Miss picked out this year's tree. 


Her Top {Only $7 + Free Shipping}


Now that Thanksgiving is over, the house is decorated, and I'm almost done with shopping for family and friends I've started rounding up my list to send to Santa. My wish list ranges from fashion must-haves to beauty items, books, games, entertaining pieces, and even extension cables for my SNES Classic. This girl would like to sit farther from the tv than 3 feet while playing Super Mario...



Stretchy Pants for the Win

I think we can all agree that stretchy pants are the champion when it comes to Thanksgiving style, or in the words of Chandler Bing should be worn every day every day every day....


I mean.. it's not Thanksgiving without a Friends reference. Geller Cup anyone? Monica with her head in a turkey? Brad Pitt's cameo? The BEST! But a cozy oversized sweater and stretchy pants are the ultimate win on turkey day, am I right?

Holiday Glam

As much as I love a good holiday party, and finding the perfect dress I'm terrible at one thing - doing my hair. If it's not blow dried straight or thrown into a ponytail for a workout I've got nothing. I was excited to be invited to a local blogger event at Cherry Blow Dry Bar for a fun girls night, bubbles, snacks, and fabulous hair-dos that made us all ready for the fun parties coming up.







"Before" shot with a mimosa of course 

"After" - so fresh and so clean clean
