Ugly Christmas Sweaters For The Whole Family.


We're seeing more and more of them every year. The Ugly Christmas sweater has become a wardrobe must-have that you can find just about anywhere. Despite their name, I find these sweaters to be more "seasonably cute" than ugly. Here are my top picks under $35 for the whole family:

How cute would this look for Christmas photos?!
  1. Christmas Tree LED Light Up Sweater ($33.99)
  2. Mustache Christmas Tree Sweater ($24.99) 
  3. Too Cool Christmas Sweater (24.99)
  4. Holiday Time Christmas Sweater (11.00)


Do you own an ugly Christmas sweater?

Friday Favorite.


 photo IMG_2033-1 copy_zpsb1mdjw4c.pngIt's Friday! Today I wanted to share one of my favorite things.
I'm trying to work on being more organized and less of a procrastinator so I went in search of a planner for 2017. I came across these super cute Recollections planners from Michaels and had to buy one! These are pretty much exactly like the Erin Condren but way more affordable @ $29.99. They're currently out of stock on the Michaels website but I've been seeing them on Etsy.
So if you enjoy planning, I would suggest checking these out. Happy planning!

The Big Three-Oh.

 photo 30thbday1 copy_zpssfgxsdld.png
I'm officially 30 today. Yep, the big three-oh.

If you had asked me a few years ago what my thoughts were on turning 30, I would have replied with "I refuse to age after 29".. but now that I'm here, I don't mind it at all. 
I don't feel old. I don't look old. Got a few white hairs but that's okay!

I'm entering my thirties excited to see what amazing things this new decade will bring me. I had a lot of fun/crazy times in my twenties but I wouldn't go back. At this moment, I can honestly say the words "I'm happy" and mean it which is a great feeling. I've grown and learned a lot and I'm incredibly thankful for that.

To cut this story short, I stopped blogging for many reasons but I've missed it so I'm going to try this thing again. I'm at a different place in my life right now than when I first started this blog years ago and I hope you enjoy the blog posts to come.

P.S. Turning 30 isn't so scary after all.

6 Things To Do Before Your Valentine's Day Date.

   photo Valentines Day Date_zps5xovssgt.png

Valentine's Day is only a few days away! 
If you've got a hot date, don't forget to add these tips to your to do-list. For my fabulous single ladies, check out my Single Girl's Guide To Valentine's Day.



1. First, get that mani/pedi on point. Being chipped and crusty is not a good look. Since I have no patience to wait for my nails to dry, I use Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat which dramatically cuts down drying time.

2. Don't forget to exfoliate your lips! I like to cover them with a thick layer of lip balm before I start my makeup so that it has time to sit and moisturize. Once my makeup is done, I wipe off the lip balm and lightly scrub my lips with a damp toothbrush. They will feel super soft and even look a little fuller.

3. Go for a long lasting lipstick, like Sephora's Cream Lip Stain, to hold up during kisses with your boo.

4. If you're showing off your legs in a sexy dress, I love mixing body lotion with a little bit of baby oil for a gorgeous glow.

5. Spray your favorite fragrance onto your pulse points(anywhere you can feel your pulse e.g. neck, wrists, inside of elbows, and back of knees). The heat that radiates from these spots will actually help activate the scent.

6. Remember to throw some mints/gum in your bag to keep your breath minty fresh.


What do you like to do before a date?
