Happy Friday guys! Today is the LAST DAY to get FREE SHIPPING from retailers + have your order guaranteed for Christmas. Don't wait one more second.. I know how bogged down UPS is because I've already been waiting on some packages for 3 WEEKS... true story - crazy I know. 

I'm rounding up a bunch of retailers that are having sales this weekend with a bunch of good gift picks - I haven't even started my shopping yet so am going to be a busy bee today and tomorrow getting everything ordered. 

I hope you all stay warm this weekend, especially if you're in the Northeast!

L’Occitane Holiday Gift Set

I am so thrilled (and honored) to be sharing today's post with L'Occitane with you guys.. Truth be told, I am such a giver. I love surprising people with little things all year round, not just on the holidays or birthdays.. whether it's with something small from the Target dollar bins or ordering a sister or girlfriend a special something. Being an influencer, I receive so much product and things to try, but in turn, I try to share this as much as possible with those around me. 

That's why I am so excited to partner with one of my favorite beauty brands, L'Occitane, on their holiday gift collection this season.

Holiday Gifts with H&M

I'm usually an online shopper, but when it comes to Christmas gifts, there's something I love about going to the store and actually purchasing gifts in real life. Shopping for 6 sisters keeps my hands full - never mind lots of other family, girlfriends, Kristopher, and the list goes on.. 

I've toyed with the idea of getting everyone the same gifts this year, except changing colors or adding in one more personal piece, like a monogrammed mug or necklace. In my online hunting (usually I stalk the sites + then go in the store for Christmas shopping!), I discovered that H&M has a weekly gifts section with lots of goodies marked down up to 60% off!

Holiday Mantel Decor

Happy Monday, everyone! First off, I want to thank each and every one of you who have commented, messaged, texted, called.. shared in the excitement in some way of Kristopher and I's engagement. We appreciate every single one of you taking the time to reach out + congratulate us! I'm so excited to be sharing our engagement story here soon! 

Today's post is one I am seriously in love with.. back when my apartment flooded in August, I had the option of staying put + going through the necessary repairs or moving a few floors up to an identical unit, except this one had a fireplace.

Shoe Trend: Slides

The craziness of Cyber weekend is (finally) over. I'll be totally honest, I get super anxious thinking about how much I should/could purchase and always have to reel it back in, to remember what I do need or who I need to purchase for. It's so easy to go overboard! I hope you all found some great deals + had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with your families. Now, it's full on Christmas mode.. I'm finishing up my Christmas decorating this week and will have a Holiday decor post on the blog next week, with lots more holiday content to come. 

Now, shifting gears...
