Where my last minute shoppers at? THANK THE LORD for Amazon Prime! I've rounded up gift ideas that'll arrive to your doorstep in 2 days for every name on your list - kids, gals & guys!

I'm particularly loving this cardigan that comes in TONS of colors. And this digital measuring tool is the perfect gift for any handy guy (or wanna be handy) in your life. Amazon is always my go-to for last minute ideas because you can totally get taken down a rabbit hole and end up finding something so unique that you weren't even originally looking for.

Happy Shopping!

Sunday funday is cool, but have you gotten some of your best gals together to make flower arrangements? That's where the fun is at! And of course, the mimosas and bloody marys were on tap! Cue: Alice's Table

I took my first Alice's Table class almost a year ago. I was so nervous to go by myself, but it ended up being one of the most fun nights out. I always have super high hopes of being more crafty and DIY-y, but I usually fail fast! Within minutes of the class starting, I learned SO much about how to properly arrange flowers. I was instantly blown away. I think I have talked about Alice's T...

I can't be the only one who turns to Pinterest for outfit inspiration, right? I was recently stuck in a rut for ideas on outfits for the upcoming holidays, so I looked at magazines and Instagram (obviously) and narrowed it down to a few key wardrobe staples that I thought were versatile and can carry into my work life since I have a busy 2019.

My inspiration board on Pinterest:

I love a good wide leg and cropped pant because it truly can work on most body types. I rocked various pants like this from summer into fall and why not continue into winter?! The pencil pants that I'm wearing below are c...

12 days! Well, it's really more like 11 because you can't shop ON Christmas Day. But if you're doing online shopping, it's actually 9 because if you get 2-day shipping and hopefully the item arrives by the 24th so you have time to wrap it before Christmas Day. Basically... it's CRUNCH TIME!

If you're still struggling for last minute ideas, you're not alone. The challenge in selecting a gift that will light up the face of your loved ones is never easy. Hopefully this gift guide with 25 ideas all under $25 will get you thinking in the right direction. There's a wide range of things from practical...

I saw my sweet little pupster sitting so innocently by the tree (he's been digging his nose into it on a daily basis) and had to capture a shot. Then, a brilliant idea came to me: GIFT GUIDE for all you dog lovers out there like me. I've gotten some pretty great gifts since I got Karsen 3 years ago. There's so many amazing things for days these day that I'm truly amazed each time I see something.

When I was putting together this guide, my boyfriend kept asking what things were like this handheld massager and the pooch selfie.

Besides the typical dog bed, toys and organic treats, I am a big fan o...

Happy December, friends! I've received a lot of requests (mostly from guys) on recommendations for stocking stuffers for the gals. I was SO happy to pull together a bunch of ideas to stuff up the stockings. 

Some tips and strategies:

1. Go with a theme (all beauty products such as face masks, nail polish and lip colors)

2. Individually wrap each item so she is surprised when opening each of them

3. Skip the candy route!

4. Color coordinate all the items like these pink slippers and a pink belt.

5. Get a boomerang of your girl with her stocking! Gotta do it for the 'gram! :)

Happy Shopping!

Dennis always love to help coordinate a gift guide for the holidays.  He is very particular about what he wears for tops and more so shoes! I recently did an Instagram story with him to ask what he is asking for for Christmas and his top picks were: sweatpants, Ugg slippers and a cordless phone charger. Ha! But these are honestly things he uses and wears ALL THE TIME. Maybe too much (sweats!)

Hope this helps you get some ideas. I always find that guys are SO hard to buy for.  But the same could be said for women, too, right? 

I tried to include a lot of basic pieces like this top and this c...

Hands down one of my favorite gift guides every year is for the host, the entertainer and the party-maker! Dennis and I LOVE hosting at our house so this gift guide is carefully selected based on things we own or typically give to others. 

My mom just recently gifted me my first beverage tub (not this exact one), but I'm obsessed with it and use it all the time.  It makes entertaining so much easier to be able to throw multiple bottles of wine in, or even all the soft drinks for kids!

I think it was our first Christmas together when Dennis got me a guacamole bowl.  He's very good at picking...

Shop my outfit:

There's no greater joy than seeing a child's face on Christmas morning - especially when its the first time they understand the concept of Santa coming.  That is what I'm looking forward to most this year - spoiling my nephew and niece (even though she is wayyyy too young lol).  This weekend we took a trip to Target for errands and to pick out a new Matchbox car for the little guy. 

I honestly never knew what to get for kids prior to my nephew. I think I erred on the side of caution and went with a gift card (so lame for kids, right?). As my nephew gets older, there are...

The holidays are here! I love having my weekends packed with parties because I get to see so many groups of friends, family and loved ones that I don't typically see throughout the year. I don't know about you, but any chance I get to dress up - I take FULL advantage.  There's so many great sales going on already this week like Express, Loft and Forever 21. Start shopping now and figure out what style and colors you're gravitating towards so you are fully prepped for shopping on Black Friday.

Trends I'm really loving for this holiday season are velvet, sparkle and RED everything. I rarely tend...
