Hello friends! I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend! I was just telling Blake how badly I needed this long holiday break – I think I got super spoiled without having a full agenda and having him home all day for the past few days…it was SO nice! Lots of movies (we watched Coming to America – with Eddie Murphy – and it was hilarious…and Pitch Perfect 2..sorry Blake, thanks for bearing with me on that one, ha!), ate so much food (my mom sent us home with pleeeenty of leftovers that we have already devoured) and just overall quality rest and relaxation. I can’t tell you the last time I went an entire day without having a lengthy to-do list…I think I should do this food + lounge-binge thing more often! 😉 Ps. Y’all…I actually started reading a book! It’s a Christmas miracle…I finally had some free time to read! I’m currently on chapter 3 and yes, it’s most definitely a romantic chick-lit novel…and for now I’ll refrain from sharing the title to spare myself any judgement, ha! Blake is over there reading quantum physics and I’m reading about a sappy post-college love triangle. Hey, ya know…the world needs all kinds, right? 😉
Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Hopefully you’ve slept off all the turkey and stuffing and now you’re re-energized to take on the day…and some AMAZING Black Friday sales!

Well hello there! I am finally back from a five day getaway/collab trip to Laguna Beach (super excited to share what we were hard at work on over the last few days…stay tuned in January for that!)…thus, I’ve gone from 80 degree temps to mid-40’s here in Austin! Luckily, Austin weather fluctuates so frequently, that I’m pretty sure I’ll be able to step out in a cute top and jeans in no time. Perks of Texas winters! 😉read more
Hello there! First off, happy Friday! Second, I am SO excited because today my second blog post with Style Me Pretty is officially live on the SMP website! For those who don’t know, I am working with Style Me Pretty to chronicle my wedding planning journey as one of their newest “Blogger Brides,” and my second blog post features how I asked my friends and family to be a part of my bridal party. (Eek, I’ve been SO excited to share this with you all…I know I gave a couple of sneak peeks on Snapchat, but now it’s finally here!).read more
As we all know…guys are quite challenging to shop for! If you’re like me, you like to give gifts with a little more meaning behind them and not just something you tossed in last minute at the checkout line…as in, it’s fun to ensure the gift is fitting for the person receiving it. For example – a cool new chemex coffee maker for the fella who’s into coffee and maybe a fun mug or two to coincide, or a neat way to store records (see the top right) and you could even throw in a couple of his favorite records he doesn’t have in his collection just yet.
What are you favorite gifts for guys? I’d love to hear them!
Scope out some fun stocking stuffer ideas below, too!
As the holidays approach…(and wowww did they come quick!), it’s time to start thinking about what you’ll be wearing to those big dinners with family and friends. Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week?! I feel like it should juuuust now be halloween… Oh life, it never slows down, does it?
When I think of what to wear to Thanksgiving, I think of a chic yet casual/comfortable outfit. After all, that second helping of pie is a definite do on this very special day with loved ones! So, I’ve styled an outfit that you can wear from Thanksgiving with family next week, to a date night with your fella the next…
