Combining Neutrals

Are you all still recovering from the Holiday weekend like I am? The days between Christmas and New Years are always tough to get through. You’re coming off a wonderful, long weekend with so many fun festivities and looking forward to another fun couple of days. Just a couple more days! We’re almost there! I have been all about comfort and neutrals this week. Christmas and New Years are typically...

Looking Toward the New Year

Well Christmas has come and gone so quickly like it always does. All that preparation and it’s over in such a flash! I had a wonderful weekend with my family. It’s always nice to unplug from the world and just spend time together. We didn’t have the TV on all weekend and we barely checked our phones. Nothing but food, conversation and games with the family – and a couple...

Holiday Traditions

I know I’ve said this before but I really can’t believe it’s Christmas in just two days! I have been loving the whole holiday season but as day actually approaches it feels less like Christmas. Today I will be finishing off the last few things on my list which will feel so good! This time of year can be so hectic so I need to remind myself to just slow down...

Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

In this post I said Winter is Coming… well, it has definitely arrived! This week has been so cold. Especially for us Texans! We are really not used to it being below freezing with wind chills taking us into the single digits. I would say that the cold weather makes it feel more like Christmas, but I’m not sure that’s true. It has me dreaming of a white Christmas but...

It’s the week of Christmas and I’m still wondering where the time has gone. I spent the weekend finishing up my shopping and wrapping everyone’s gifts. I always try to slow down and savor this time of year, but I do get caught up in the hustle and bustle. The cold front that blew in this weekend definitely helped me slow down. With the temperature dropping all I wanted to...

Seasonal Skin Care

Something I have always been very passionate about is skin care. I’ve talked about it a couple of times on the blog before. My goal is to make sure that I only share with you when I have something I can stand behind. First Aid Beauty products are still some of my favorite products I have ever used. I also invested in La Mer and found that it was definitely worth the...

Gift Guide: Hostess Gifts

Hostess

Earlier this week I shared a Holiday Glam look that is perfect for your next holiday party. This is the time of year for parties. Whether it’s a family gathering or a formal company party, it’s always nice to bring a little something. The hostess (or host) has done a lot of work to put the party together so a gift is always a welcome gesture. A bottle of wine...

The Solution to Your Bra-blems with ThirdLove

As women we all have certain things that we refer to as “problems”. Sometimes as I shoe lover I have said I have a “shoe problem!” For some women it’s shoes, others it’s handbags, then there are the makeup junkies, and the list goes on. But one problem every woman has dealt with in her life is finding the perfect bra. There is always something I find with bras that drives...

How To Find the Perfect Gift

Today I want to talk about gifting. If you’re like me you have started your holiday shopping but still have a few people left on your list. My family and closest friends are sometimes the last people I cross off of my list. I want to make sure that I am gifting something special and meaningful. And that takes time! There is an art to choosing a great gift and...
