As a child, the holidays were always a magical time for me, full of family, food, sparkle lights, Santa, and presents. But as I grew up, and mostly when my parents split up 10 years ago, the holidays became trickier, and new emotions crept in along with the excitement. Don't get me wrong, I still love the holiday season but certain aspects of it can be overwhelming and stressful at times.

A few weeks ago, I filmed a series of videos for Stop & Shop that they’ll be using to promote some new features in their stores. I’m excited (and nervous!) to be sharing them with you today. I don’t know why being on video makes me so nervous, but I’m glad I stepped out of my comfort zone to be a part of this campaign because it was really fun and pushed me to do something new...
Before I talk about this look, I feel like I should share with you that this time of year makes me even more anxious than usual for a lot of reasons, and I'm writing a post about it that will go live tomorrow or Friday. A lot of the blog posts you're reading both here and on other sites are fluff and/or trying to sell products (guilty as charged) because that's when we, as bloggers, make a lot of our income for the year.
Before I get into my killer list of hostess gifts (if I do say so myself), I'm so so so excited to announce that my entire 2018 holiday gift guide is live! I've poured hours and hours into it over the last week, and I hope that it inspires you to buy gifts that you love for everyone on your list.
Over the weekend I was going through my content calendar and casually realized that Thanksgiving is next week. Let me repeat that, next week! Literally I was not at all prepared for that and now am panicking slightly because we're leaving for Bermuda a week from tomorrow and I haven't planned out anything except for our hotel and flights!
