CHRISTMAS GIVEAWAY

Hey everyone and happy Friday! I know it's really late and that I usually write my posts early in the morning but, I was out all day Christmas shopping and I decided since my blog will be one year old on Sunday to do a giveaway :) I love this time of the year!! I love all the pretty lights, the decorations, the presents, and especially the time spent with family I don't always get to see. It's also the time of year I started my blog. I can't believe it's been a year already! I've had so much fun writing each and every post and I really appreciate all the views and the feedback I've gotten throughout the past year. As a little thank you I purchased a few items ( 8 to be exact) that I want to give away to one lucky winner. I hand picked each and every one of these items and I hope you love them as much as I do. The rules to enter the giveaway will be at the bottom of this post. Please be sure to follow them exactly...I had to disqualify some people from the last giveaway and I really don't want to do that. I want everyone to have a fair shot at these awesome items :) So, what did I find that you could possibly win???


#1-Betsey Johnson purse
I fell in love with this adorable purse the moment I saw it and I knew I had to include it in this giveaway! The purse is small and round so it will be perfect when you don't want to lug a huge full size purse with you and it's a fuzzy bear!! How cool is that?! Betsey Johnson is one of my favorite designers and I think this purse totally represents her eccentric style :)


#2-Pink hat and scarf set
I love wearing hats and scarves during the fall and winter seasons and when I saw this beautiful bright pink combo I knew I had to include it in this giveaway. This gorgeous scarf and hat set will keep you warm during all your outdoor adventures this holiday season (caroling, etc) and will keep you looking super stylish :)


#3-Warm and fuzzy socks
Who doesn't love wearing a cozy pair of fuzzy socks during the winter season? I literally live in these when it's cold and my feet always stay warm. I picked this particular pair because they are pink (my favorite color) and they have cute snowflakes on them. These will keep your feet super warm on all the cold nights we have ahead :)


#4-Betsey Johnson umbrella
I had to include this umbrella in this giveaway for three reasons. First the leopard print is really cute. Second the winter season can be a little wet with all the sleet and snow. Third it's Betsey Johnson and she's the best!! LOL. This beautiful and stylish umbrella will keep you dry and looking good all year long :)


#5-Frosted cranberry soap
You may be asking why a bar of soap. Well just wait until you smell it!! I actually bought myself a bar of this as well and it smells sooooo good. I haven't used it yet so I can't vouch for how it will make your skin feel, but it will sure make you smell pretty :)


#6-Relaxing cat eye mask
I grabbed this cutie up the second I saw it. There was only one left and I really wanted it for this giveaway. I love cats and this pink eye mask is too adorable for words. Also, it smells like lavender which is a really relaxing scent and will help you wind down after a long day at work or just to relieve stress from the holiday season :)


#7-"Hello gorgeous" makeup bag
I thought this little makeup bag was the cutest thing ever so I snatched it up before someone else could. I love the little smiley face on the front and also the adorable black fuzz ball attached to it. This will be perfect to carry some eyeliner, lipstick, and other small cosmetic items so you can freshen up your look and still look super cute doing it :)


#8-TY Christmas reindeer
OMG how cute is this little stuffed reindeer?? I wanted to include a small plush toy in this giveaway and I knew I found the perfect item when I saw this little guy. He's got beautiful green eyes and red and green hooves which is perfect for the Christmas season. He'll be the perfect little decoration for your shelf or maybe you have a little one who'd love to have it :) 


So, which one is your favorite? Mine is the purse, but it's not for me LOL. Be sure to follow the rules below so you'll be entered to win all 8 of these super adorable items!

Paisley Print Dress

*This post contains affiliate links*

Happy hump day!! Who else is super excited that the week is halfway over already? I know I sure am. Tonight is my last night of work for the week then I'm taking my last personal day of the year tomorrow so I can help my dad's church with a fundraiser. I like to do at least one of these during the holiday season because it always makes me feel good to give something back :) Before I head off to work I'd like to share with you a new dress that I found. I love this dress so much and I'm sure you will as well. If anything it will be a great gift idea for someone on your Christmas list!! So, what is this dress and where can you snag one for yourself?


The Dress
I found this beautiful paisley print dress while shopping at Target about a month or so ago and I knew immediately I had to have it. It's not everyday that I find a long dress that hits just above the ankle which is perfect for my height. I know on taller women it will probably be just past the knee but I love this length on me :) It wasn't only the length that caught my attention but also the beautiful paisley print that covers the whole entire dress. To me it makes the dress look super retro which I love. Also, this dress is very slinky and stretchy so it hugs my body perfectly without being too tight! The lace up neckline is the final feature that makes this dress a must have for any fashion lover. Oh and did I mention that it's less than $30?! What a steal!!! So, how did I end up styling this beauty and how can you change it up to match your style?


My Style
I wanted to look super dressy when wearing this dress but also keep with the retro theme just a bit so I decided to pair this dress with my awesome black chunky heels that I got on sale from Shoe Dazzle this past summer. I LOVE these heels so much and they have become my absolute favorite pair of black heels that I own. I love how shiny they are and the little buckles on the side are super cute. The heel itself is slightly chunky in that it isn't a narrow heel but a flat wider one that makes walking much easier. I felt really bold and confident wearing this outfit and I'm sure you will as well. To change it up a bit you could always wear a cute pair of lace up flats instead or even some adorable wedges. I'm not sure if boots or booties would work as I didn't try any on with the dress but you could always give it a try and see how it looks. For colder days throw on a cute black dressy jacket and you're good to go :)

Isn't this dress beautiful? Did you like the way I styled it? How would you style it differently? I'd love to hear from you so leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Be sure to spread the love and share this post with all your friends who would love this dress. I hope you have an amazing week and happy shopping :)

Must Have Monday

Hey everyone and happy Monday! I hope you had an amazing weekend. Mine was not only fun but super productive. I wasn't ready to head back to work last night, but I gotta keep making that steady paycheck until my business kicks off ;) So, who's ready for Christmas??? Normally I already have my tree up by now but I've been so busy. Hopefully I can get it put up Friday or Saturday. But, I do have almost all the presents on my list bought. I just have to go back for a few more things. I love Christmas!! I love the lights, the music, the fun, the family time, the shopping, and of course THE UGLY CHRISTMAS SWEATERS!!! Are you obsessed with ugly Christmas sweaters as much as I am? I don't think they're ugly at all actually, but super cute. For today's post I decided to share with you some of the one's I currently have my eye on and I'm sure you'll love them as much as I do :)



Must Haves

1-Dear Santa sweater (boohoo, $26)
2-Green ornament sweater (Cubus, $26)
3-Santa's coming sweater (Boohoo, $26)
4-Reindeer sweater (Cubus, $26)
5-Filthy animal sweater (Boohoo, $19)

The black Dear Santa sweater perfectly describes me and I'm sure most everyone else as well. It's just a funny little saying that pretty much lets everyone know you tried to be good but it didn't really work out so well. LOL ;) The green ornament sweater is super cute! I love how it makes you look like a Christmas tree. The company that sells this sweater is from Europe but I tried to do the money conversion to dollars the best I could. It should be pretty accurate. I just wonder if they ship here HMMMM. This white Santa's coming sweater is too adorable. It reminds me of the movie Elf which I just watched this weekend to get into the spirit of Christmas :) This red reindeer sweater is the cutest thing ever!! I love sweaters like this. This sweater is also from the European company but I've seen similar ones in our American stores. I may have to go out and purchase one for sure :) This grey sweater quotes one of the most iconic Christmas movies of all time...Home Alone! I never go a year without watching the first two of these movies and it would be nice to have this sweater to wear to show my love of this holiday classic :) You can shop all these beautiful "Ugly" Christmas sweaters HERE!


Aren't these sweaters adorable? Do you love to wear ugly Christmas sweaters during the holidays? Which one of these is your favorite? I'd love to hear from you so leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Be sure to spread the love and share this post with all your friends who love wonderful "ugly" Christmas sweaters. I hope you have an amazing week and happy shopping :)

The Ultimate Guide To Shopping For A Fashionista

Happy Black Friday everyone!! I know this post is SUPER late but I was out black Friday shopping all day and I quite literally just got home. How was your Thanksgiving? Mine was amazing!! I hosted and all the food turned out delicious (THANK GOD) and I enjoyed spending some much needed time with friends and family. Now it's time to get ready for Christmas, my absolute favorite holiday of the year!! Christmas shopping is the reason I was up at 6am hitting up all the stores until the money ran out. LOL Who else ventured out last night and/or this morning to take advantage of all the amazing sales that were going on everywhere? Did you find what you were looking for or is there someone on your Christmas list that is super hard to buy for? Whether you know a fashionista or are one yourself I have come up with the perfect gift ideas that will make any fashionista smile...we are quite simple to please actually ;) 


#1-A New Watch
What fashionista wouldn't love a new watch for Christmas? We love to always look pretty and show off some bling so getting a watch makes us super happy. There are so many styles to choose from so make sure you pick one that best represents your fashionista. I am currently obsessing over a gorgeous Kate Spade watch myself so we shall see if Santa brings it to me. LOL I have given you some examples of the cutest watches I have seen this season :) You can shop all these beauties HERE!


#2-A New Purse
Just like the watch, a purse is something us fashionistas can carry on our arm and show off so it's the perfect accessory item for us. I'm actually on the hunt right now for a cute leopard purse for an outfit I'm planning to wear. Wish me luck ;) Below are some examples of purses that I know any fashionista would love to have under the tree. You can shop for these HERE!


#3-A New Scarf
Scarves are THE hottest accessory right now! Everyone is wearing them and I'm personally obsessed and can't stop buying them. A pretty scarf would be the perfect gift for that fashionista in your life and they're not too expensive either. You can shop all the scarves pictured HERE!


#4-A New Sweater
I LOVE getting sweaters for Christmas. Especially if they are a pretty color and not wool (I'm allergic). Buying a fashionista a new sweater will certainly make her happy, just remember to get the size right. Nothing is more annoying then opening the most adorable sweater then realizing you can't wear it. Oh well that's why they have gift receipts I guess. LOL These sweaters pictured are all super cute and you can shop them HERE!


#5-A New Coat/Jacket
I live in Texas so I might get to wear a coat maybe twice a year and a jacket for only a few months of the year, but that doesn't mean I don't like them. For those fashionistas who live in colder areas a coat or jacket would be the perfect Christmas gift. Nothing cramps a style more than shivering the whole time you're out. You can shop these amazing coats/jackets HERE!


#6-A New Pair Of Boots
Now here's something I can wear and trust me I do!! Boots are the hottest footwear right now and buying your fashionista a pair of them will not only keep her feet warm but it will also make her happy. Just be sure to get the size right on these as well. I received a beautiful pair of purple UGGs last Christmas and they were too big AND I was unable to return them :( A new pair of boots IN HER SIZE will be a great gift indeed. You can shop these amazing boots HERE!


#7-A New Beauty Bath Set
These are my favorite things to buy for other fashionistas for Christmas. You can't go wrong with a good smelling bath set. I don't think I've ever not liked one of these I got for a present either. You can find awesome deals at Bath and Body Works or even Walmart who has bath sets as low as $5! Fashionistas love pampering themselves so this is a great gift idea for that special fashionista in your life. You can shop all these sets HERE!


#8-A New Pair Of Pajamas
Yes, we still love to look good even while lounging around the house so a new pair of super cute pajamas is always a great gift idea. The best thing about pajamas is there's always a cuter pair somewhere so if you accidentally grab the wrong size she can return them for either the same ones or a pair she likes better. You can shop all these beautiful pajama sets HERE!


#9-A New Pair Of Fuzzy Socks
Or two...or three!! Fuzzy socks are so soft and comfortable that I can NEVER have too many pairs of them. In fact I told everyone that's what I wanted for Christmas. The best part about fuzzy socks is how cheap they are. I've seen them as low as $4 a pair and sometimes you can find a pack of 3 for $5! So go ahead and buy a bunch of fuzzy socks for your fashionista. Her feet will thank you and besides you can't have new pajamas without new socks. LOL You can shop all these fuzzy socks HERE!


#10-A New Throw Blanket
I seriously think I have around 20 or so of these blankets but I always want more! Fashionistas like to curl up in front of the tv with their pajamas, socks, and a soft throw blanket and watch a movie just like everyone else so why not get her a beautiful throw blanket for Christmas. You can't get the size wrong with these and any color will do. I've picked some throw blankets that are really pretty and linked them all for you HERE


What are you planning to buy for the fashionista in your life? Which of these is your go-to present when shopping for women in general? What do YOU want for Christmas? I'd love to hear from you so leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Be sure to spread the love and share this post with all your friends who have a fashionista to shop for this Christmas. I hope you have an amazing weekend and happy shopping :)

Fall Leggings And Pumpkin Spice

Happy Thanksgiving eve everyone!! I'm so excited that tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I get to host for both my family and several of my friends who are coming as well. It's going to be a wonderful day filled with fun, food, and laughter. Unfortunately I have to work tonight so I'll be a little tired in the morning when I'm cooking, but it will all be worth it when the food is done :) To celebrate the festivities tomorrow I purchased the cutest Thanksgiving day outfit to wear, but I couldn't wait to share it with you so I wore it a little early. LOL. I found the cutest Fall leggings EVER and built the entire outfit around them. Yes that's how cute they are!! So, what are these awesome leggings I'm talking about and where can you snag a pair as well?


The Leggings
I found these gorgeous Fall mixed print leggings while shopping at Walmart about a month ago. I paid the full price of right at $8, but one of my friends said her Walmart has them on clearance right now so maybe you'll get lucky and snag a pair for cheaper. They are no longer available online but you can get them in a different print through the link below. I love all the colors in these leggings. They are so funky and fun and the colors are so vibrant that I knew I had to have them the moment I saw them. They aren't fleece lined, but they are REALLY soft and super comfortable. Even if you don't have time to wear them this fall season, you can get them on clearance and wear them next year. So, how did I decide to style these beauties and how can you mix it up to match your style?


My Style
Originally I wanted to find a bright orange Halloween top and wear these leggings with my awesome orange Converse sneakers, but at the last minute I decided to dress these up a bit so I went on the hunt for something more "pumpkin spice" colored. I found this amazing top at Kohl's and I knew right away it was the perfect choice to wear with my awesome new leggings. I got this top on sale for less than $15 and I absolutely love it! Not only is the color very flattering with my skin tone, but the sleeves have this gorgeous crochet detail that gives this shirt that little something extra ;) And it's just long enough to be the perfect shirt for leggings! After bringing home the shirt and looking through my closet I realized that I had no shoes that would match. This is where JustFab comes into play. I LOVE that I have a membership in an amazing shoe club so I can shop for whatever I'm looking for and get great deals and free shipping. I searched for "cognac boots" and these were the ones that caught my eye. Wedge boots are so awesome and they lace all the way up to the knee which I love. Not to mention the color matched the shirt and leggings perfectly. Oh and these boots are really soft like suede and only $40 :) I wore this outfit on a shopping trip with my mom and I was really comfortable. Not once did my feet start hurting and I was really thankful for that. To change up the style a bit you can wear sneakers instead of boots or you could opt for a different type of boot. A cute pair of moto boots would look good and so would some comfy UGGs. With so many colors in these leggings it's best to pick just one of them and match the shirt and the shoes to that color.


Shop This Look: Leggings / Shirt / Boots


Aren't these leggings adorable? Do you like how I styled them? How would you style them differently? What do you plan to wear for Thanksgiving dinner this year? I'd love to hear from you so leave me a comment and let me know what you think. Be sure to spread the love and share this post with all your friends who would love this outfit as much as I do. I hope you have a safe and happy Thanksgiving and as always Happy Shopping :)
