Deck the Halls

Am I the only person that hasn't put up their Christmas tree yet? I love the holidays but sometimes the thought of dragging down all those decorations sounds exhausting. I am happy when it's all out but it is a little overwhelming to think about. Also, I am a little nervous that this year we have a full fledged toddler who could possibly climb the tree (because he just likes to do that sort of thing). Yes, that is why I am waiting, to keep those little hands from tearing off every ornament and light he can find. It has nothing to do with my laziness.

I wonder if my coffee filter wreath made through life in the attic? Most of my decorations are white, gold and silver. I think I will keep the same color scheme but maybe add a few more pieces.

Here is some inspiration if you are in my same boat...

Forget the decorations, I want that coat hanging on the chair!

Gift Guide: Jewelry

Love getting or giving jewelry for Christmas? Here is an abundance of jewels for young and old.

1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-13-14-15-16


Any of these would be great in your jewelry collection. I am loving bracelets right now so I picked some that can be mixed and matched and added to bracelets you already have. The gold necklace and watch are classics. The rings are delicate and the other necklaces are on trend right now. Everyone could use more earrings, right?

Happy Shopping!

My Gallery Wall

It's finally done! The pictures up my staircase are done (well, I think I am going to add 1 or 2 more small frames to the bottom).

I fully intended on using all those helpful pins on Pinterest about hanging a gallery wall to make it easy but I don't have the patience. So I just went for it and it turned out pretty good I think.

These are good ideas....


Here is mine...






Like I said, I am going to add more to the bottom. Probably some small square frames to balance out the ones on top. It is a great way to display family photos and use up a big wall space.

Good Hair Thursday: Whitney Port

Since tomorrow is Thanksgiving, I am posting Good Hair Thursday on Wednesday. I hope everyone has a relaxing and wonderful Thanksgiving!

I am reaching into the files and bringing back some Good Hair. Whitney Port was the first girl I displayed on Good Hair Thursday. I think she deserves a re-visit. See first post here

Madewell Denim

I am in need of some good jeans. The other day I had my $13.98 sale jeans from Target and thought to myself these aren't working for me anymore. They were a impulse purchase. Not that there is anything wrong with Target jeans these just weren't it.

I really like Madewell but have never tried there jeans. They look like they would fit great and are reasonably priced.




Bootlegger Jeans $89.50


Alexa Chung for Madewell It's All Happening Denim Trousers $89.99

New Favorite Lip Gloss

I have really loved Revlon's Color Lip Gloss Lipshine so much that I have a little collection. Well, just two but I intend to get more.



So far I have Papaya and Rosegold. This lipgloss has great color and is not sticky. Bonus: they are inexpensive!



*This is my opinion. When I do product reviews for a company I will let you know. This product just happens to be one of my new faves.

Gallery Wall

I am almost ready to show you my gallery wall but still waiting for a few pictures to come in the mail. I am really happy how it turned out but will probably continue to add a few frames here in there. It was suprisingly easy to place the frames, so much so that I have decided to do an eclectic one in a hallway. Maybe beginners luck.

Here is a nice little vignette I found on Pinterest...


Neat and simple. Is everyone ready for Thanksgiving?

This Weekend

There were tons of sales going on this weekend! Did anyone get anything good? We had a date night Saturday night and I got to do a little shopping. The weather was so nice we walked around our outdoor shopping center and went to a new restaurant called Mi Dia. It was soooo good! I love mexican food and a good margarita!

Here is what I got...


The jacket on the left if from Gap and with all the sales it ended up being $13.98 marked down from $98. I am trying to buy different stuff and can't beat the price! The shirt on the left is from Lucky. It was reg. $99 and marked down to $49 with an extra 25% off.


The bracelet is from Lucky also, $18.

What To Wear With "Leather" Leggings

My wonderful and resourceful sister called me a few months ago saying...

"You know how we were talking about wanting leather pants?"

 I said, "Yeah"

"Well, I was at the Gap and they were having a extra 40 percent off sale items and they had these faux leather leggings on sale for $25 (they were reg. $79). They had your size and I bought them for you and I got some too." Ok, the math may not add up but I can't remember all the details,I just know they were $25.

I reply "Thanks!!"

When I get them, they are my size but are extremely fitted. There is a special tag on them that say skin tight. I think this is a warning tag. My sister reminded me of the friends episode were Ross has issues with getting his leather pants back on. Hilarious!

Anyway, I kept them but am waiting for cooler weather. My other pause is that I will definetly need tops that cover my booty. They show every little detail and that isn't always pretty. I guess this is the case for any kind of legging but these are extreme. Don't get me wrong, I like them, just have to be careful what you wear with them.




Gap Faux Leather Leggings

Beige Against the Machine Sweater (Cream Sweater)

Baniel knitted cotton-blend jacket  (Black and White Cardigan)

Joe's Jeans black leather 'Sienna' jeweled and studded flats

Earthies - Halley (Black Kid Suede) - Footwear

I think the big oversized sweater with flats make them more casual and balances out the tightness on the bottom. The other sweater is dressier with the booties. I would wear a long tank underneath.

Did you get any leather this season (faux or the real thing)?
