Snow Days

After a very busy holiday season, Anel and I wanted to unwind and connect without our phones or any stress, so we planned a day of massages, healthy eating, and relaxing. On Saturday morning, we drove up to The Mayflower Grace for our luxurious spa day, and it was better than I could have ever imagined. We stayed at the hotel last spring, and our favorite … Read the post >>

Red Flats

I realize that blue stripes and white jeans are not exactly appropriate for January, but yesterday the sun came out, it was 50 degrees (practically tropical around here!), and I felt so excited to feel sunshine on my face and soak up some vitamin D. I suffer from mild seasonal depression, and at some point every winter decide I want to move to California. Then … Read the post >>

Plaid Ribbon

Today, my holiday festivities begin, in a way, as my mom arrives in town this afternoon. Tomorrow we’re going to do a massive grocery haul as we have three dinners in a row to host: Mexican food with my uncle and cousins on Friday, Christmas Eve’s seven fishes dinner on Saturday (it’s an Italian thing), and then a big for Christmas dinner with my family and … Read the post >>

Holiday Coat

When planning outfits for holiday parties, it’s important not to forget about outerwear! When you walk into the party, you’re usually wearing it, so it can make a serious first impression. Last weekend, we had two parties in a row on Saturday, and I came prepared with my current favorite holiday-season coat. I’m obsessed with the shimmery fabric (You can’t really tell how pretty it … Read the post >>

Fewer Better Things

As I get older, and fall more and more in love with Marie Kondo’s method of de-cluttering by only keeping things that truly spark joy in your life, the more I appreciate the concept of owning fewer, better things. Quality-made pieces that will last decades, if not a lifetime. I did one big Kondo-style clean-out earlier this year, and repeated smaller versions of it monthly … Read the post >>

Holiday Card

Shooting this year’s holiday card felt good. Like really good. Last year, I was in such a bad place, feeling so sorry for myself. While we took the photos, I had just had my second miscarriage… which is why we wore glasses in the photos. There were tears, it was awful. This year, I felt happy, fulfilled, loved, and healthy. The amount I’ve grown in the … Read the post >>

Holiday Travel

Annndddd we’re back… Thanksgiving weekend came and went in a flash, making it now officially the holiday season. My weekend was so wonderful, a great time of unwinding, eating, and spending time with family. The highlights included a Thanksgiving dinner mannequin challenge (which included my 90 year old great aunt), and seeing my brother Jackson perform as Tiny Tim in A Christmas Carol. He was so … Read the post >>

Double Leopard + Black Friday Sales

I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving! Mine was filled with food and family, but today I’m in Christmas shopping mode, and hoping to get everyone checked off of my list with these amazing sales (scroll all the way down to see them). The ones marked below with an asterisk are new as of my last sale round up. This sweater (that I’m wearing in blush) … Read the post >>
