The Blue Skirt

Blues123

Hello and happy Monday! I purchased this skirt from Asos a the beginning of the year and have tried many different styles to find a more casual way of wearing it.

The Blue Skirt

I didn’t want to feel like I was late to prom night, so I added a scarf, cardigan + fun top to make my look more casual.

I also opted for these shoes, rather than my usual pump.

Winter Green & Burgundy

On the 11th day of xmas my truelove gave to me…a kate spade bag?

Ok, so we all know I love me some Kate Spade. However, I am not 100% convinced about this bag. I will tell you why.

To start, I feel it’s too small (for my life style), and the material of the bag is really tough and hard. Its not your usual soft leathery feel that I am used to with their bags. But being that I got it on a major sale, and that I do love the style of it, It’s a keeper :) .

Winter Green & burgundy

How about burgundy and green for a holiday outfit? I like how well these two compliment each other.

That List!

My true love 1

On the 8th day of Xmas my true love gave to me…Ok guys, I am so late with my Xmas shopping, most of the people I know are almost done with their list. I’ve been looking everywhere for practical items to gift my loved ones. I like the scarf the Ali Fedotowsky is wearing on the picture on top, and the best part, it’s only $28 dollars! Scarfs, gloves, socks, PJs, I love when I get them and most of the women in my life love to receive them :) !

 

my true loveExact scarf as pictured, find it here.

Here are a couple of items I’ve found online that I feel would be great gift ideas.

cashmere glovesCan anyone go wrong with cashmere gloves? These $55 dollar gloves, are now on sale at Neiman Marcus for $20.00!

ponchoA great cozy poncho is always welcomed! What I like about this gift is that you do not have to worry about size. This is one of those items where one size fits all. This $248 piece is now costing $74!

watcha multi tool watch for that guy in your life that does it all!

a knitted sweater :) …on sale for $14!

An animal robe for the kid (or kids) in our lives :) ! cozy and practical!

Remember the holidays is not about the gifts, the dress or the bling. But about family, love, and spending quality time with those we cherish.  Have a blessed and safe day!

 

Xmas Décor

Hello, :) and welcome!

Xmas Decor 13

Is your house transformed into a Christmas wonderland? I am extremely picky with my Christmas décor, too many Santas floating around and I start to feel overwhelmed. I normally pick one room (mainly the family room) and decorate that area at full, while keeping the rest of the house with small details emphasizing the holiday.

Xmas Decor

My theme for the past 2 years has been silver and gold, I love the feel of sophistication and peace it brings into the room.

Small details can truly change the feel of your room. The basket in the picture on top is something we used all year round, we added some silver ornaments and it transformed it for the holidays. Xmas Decor8

A nice throw adds warmth and can also be an inexpensive way of adding a practical décor.

I wanted to switch my Xmas tree for a white one this year, but my oldest son loves this tree so much, we decided to keep it another year.

As per the rest of the house, I added small details, such as a nice treat in the kitchen :).

As per bedrooms, I kept it simple with stockings on the boys doors.

the 5 year old’s door…to keep the peace, I kept both stockings the same by choosing our last name letter monogram, rather than their first name. If you have kids, you know what I am talking about. :)

I purchased this cute holiday string and use it as a curtain tassel in my babies room.

Now the tricky part is to get them little hands away from all that glitter :) .

Home Decor--

It’s always a lot of fun to decorate my home, but the best part is to do it with my lil ones and see their faces once all is done. I hope you have a great weekend!

Silver&White

Silver & White 1

Hello! Already 4 days into DEC! Amazing how fast these past few weeks have felt. Blogging about thanksgiving was a merely idea, before the day had come and gone.

Now that we are in full Xmas mode, it’s time for that glitter, silver, gold, red and all in between to come into play. Silver & White

I have found a new obsession for glittered sweaters this winter. Besides the cozy factor, they are so versatile and look great with jeans or skirts.

If you are looking for a nice feminine coat for the holidays, I would recommend Tahari. You truly get good quality for your money!

There is nothing cozier than a nice knitted cardigan for winter days!

Honesty, I do not like to spend too much money on knitted items. They do not last long with my lifestyle, they tangle everywhere when chasing after my 18 months baby.

Cardigan: Local Mandee (they are carrying a special of buy one get one for 10 dollars). Dress: H&M / Boots: Frye (similar)

I hope you enjoy your weekend! I am still on a hunt for thanksgiving ideas! :)

I get to host Thanksgiving dinner this year, I am a bit nervous, as my home décor is not screaming “turkey day”. Next week I will be posting some ideas I’ve gathered  for this event!

Remember, it’s a time to give thanks, share, and enjoy with your loved ones. God bless.
