Grab some hot cocoa and take a look at their Party Essentials section. Not going to lie, it’s the page I’ve been stalking the most on their website. No matter what your plans are that night, I think you’d be…

A Holiday Dress to Remember

This is a sponsored post in partnership with David’s Bridal. If you’ve ever walked into a David’s Bridal, more than likely it’s because you were buying your wedding dress or you were part of someone else’s special day. My experience with them had me purchasing my own heavily beaded and lace wedding gown. But, I’m here to tell you they are so much more than bridal. I’m talking about holiday outfit goals guys! We all know that when November rolls around, we all have holidays on the brain. This means cocktail parties, work & family gatherings, black tie events, winter…

Last-Minute Christmas Shopping for My Mom

Sponsored by JCPenney Mom…if you’re reading this post, please stop right now. I know you’re probably still reading this, so I’m going to do my best to make sure you’ll be surprised when you open your gifts on Christmas. True story guys…I have been asking my mom to send me a list of the things she might want or need and to this day she refuses to send one over. She just replies…”surprise me.” So, that’s basically what I had to do. I ran over to JCPenney bright and early this morning to do some last-minute shopping for my mom.…

Christmas Casual

It’s no surprise that I love to dress as comfy as possible. Even when the holidays roll around I make sure that my festive outfits always reflect my personal style—which is pretty much comfy casual. I’ll even take my sequined pieces there if it calls for it. Like I did with this latest outfit from Lane Bryant, that I will probably wear on Christmas Eve with the family. I appreciate the fact that sequins come in all shapes and forms. And I am a sucker for a quality sequined jacket or blazer. I see them as statement pieces that will…

Boho Holiday

As much as I love wearing sequins during the holiday’s, sometimes I like to mix things up and try something a little different. If you’re all about an unconventional holiday look, but still want that drama, then I think the Lavish Alice Floaty Sleeve Playsuit from Simply Be might be your thing. It’s the ultimate party romper in one of my favorite colors and it has serious boho vibes! I saw this online and instantly had to have it. I loved it so much, that I forgot one little thing about me and the rompers. Because I have a bigger-than-average-sized chest,…

Holiday Sparkle

What would the holidays be without a little sparkle…or a lot of sparkle? I know a lot of you think sequins can be cliche around this time of year—but who cares?  It’s time to get festive people! I am obsessed with them (in my own way). And now is the time to sparkle guys! Lane Bryant knows my obsession all too well and sent over their Sequin Dress with Chiffon. I see it as more of an elegant way to do sequins this holiday season. The first thing that caught my eye about this dress was the dark gray color. Most people…

By now, we all have a holiday wish list built up in our heads. Most of the time, these are essential items to get us through the year. Then there’s the dream wish list.

We’ve all been there and I’m going to share mine with you. Here’s my dream holiday wish list vs. my realistic holiday wish list (wish a little help from Kmart.com).

Your Holiday Toy Shopping Starts Now / Giveaway (Closed)

Sponsored by Kmart.

There I was in the store’s toy section. Walking through each aisle commenting how we never had cool toys like this when I was a kid. No, seriously…we didn’t! I had my two-year-old nephew with me as he jumped from toy to toy—wanting everything in sight. We’ve all been there right? Toys hold a power in kids unlike anything else. They have the ability to empower, educate, and inspire their young minds.

Like Father Like Daughter / Father’s Day Giveaway (Closed)

Sponsored by Kmart

I love my papa with all of my heart. He is such an amazing man, he has a big heart, he’s a hard worker, and he’s unlike any other. No, he’s not perfect and that’s OK. On this Father’s Day, I’m reflecting on our relationship. And it’s so very different today, compared to when I was a kid. We weren’t very close. I guess you can say we didn’t have that typical father and daughter relationship. In fact, it wasn’t until I was in my late teens when that all changed for the better.
