White Wedding

While it isn’t traditionally wedding season any longer, there are the brave few who still have a winter wedding. In my opinion it is so romantic! Snow, Christmas lights and trees, it just all feels so cozy and beautiful to me. And the more white the better!

These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

Just in time for holiday shopping, these are a few of my favorite things. Yes, this year has much less Kate Spade and a lot more practical items, but hey, things change. And seriously, do I need to suggest Kate Spade, it is just a given! I wish I could be like Oprah and give them all to you, shoot, I wish I could give them all to me!

Heluvua Good Greek Yogurt Dip (in French Onion)
Ok, so you are thinking this is an odd one to start off with and true, however, this is the best discovery I have made recently and I want everyone to know about it! It tastes just like chip dip and is only 40 calories! I cannot get enough! Maybe not the best gift, but great for your holiday parties or just to have around for the holidays.

Heluva Good

Hand Held Shower Head
There is pretty much nothing I love more these days than a steaming hot shower! Having a good shower head is key to a good shower.

Home Depot

Gas Fireplace
Yes, you can tell it is winter and I am a cold person because right behind my hot shower I could not live without my fireplace! Have a remote control gas fireplace is awesome because I have a fire 15 times a day and I never have to clean up or build a fire. I simply turn it on when I want it and turn it off when I don’t (which is only when I’m leaving the house)!

Woodland Direct

Sherpa Blanket
This thing is like my best friend. Yes, I know, another cold weather item, but it is just so cozy and warm and fuzzy and almost all need. Give me my sherpa blanket, my fire, a cup of tea and a book and I’m just about as happy as I can get.


Video Monitor
Life changing as a parent!


Asos Maternity Clothes
OMG, finally cute, affordable maternity clothes. I honestly thought this did not exist!

Set Your Thanksgiving Table

While I always have great intentions and would love to be all Martha Stewart about my Thanksgiving table, it is just a miracle I get dinner cooked anything else is just not going to happen. However, there are people like my sister who prioritize the table and makes sure she has a beautiful DIY centerpiece and decor. I want to be like her, but I know many of you are! If I were like my sister I would wish my table looked like any of these!

I love fruit as centerpieces!

Inspired by Candy Canes

I am loving candy canes in any way shape or form right now. Candy stripes on linen, candy canes to eat, drink, as decor, as a topping. I’ll take my candy canes any way I can get them.

Gift Giving Guide for Men

I think buying for my husband is the hardest thing. He is so particular and men’s gadgets are so much more expensive than women’s. I can’t pick  him up a pretty little scarf and have him be thrilled. Here are my best ideas for the men in your life. Got any ideas of your own to add?

Not’s Your Dad’s Tie – I know a tie is so generic but this Fair Isle knit tie is so not the generic dad tie! Any dad (or not dad) would look hot in this.

Keep Cozy – Ben Sherman Plectrum Flat Cap

It is November, time for Oprah’s Favorite Things! And if Oprah can do it why not the rest of us right? Also known as “what to give any woman in your life for the holidays”. So take note gents, these are some great gift ideas.

Bling – Kate Spade glitterball Ipad sleeve. What better way to give a little sparkle without having to really give the real deal?

Kate Spade

Get Cozy – Who doesn’t want to imagine they are sea worthy? This anchor scarf from J.Crew makes you feel likes  sailor.


Wedge Booties – Enzo Angiolini


Chunky Necklace – Must have of the season. And in coral too. Wear it with everything. Stella and Dot Gold and Coral Epoxy Stone Bib Necklace

– I LOVE tights. Tights might be my favorite thing. Ok well, probably not but I do love tights. A note on tights. You are never too old for tights! You are always too young for panty hose. Throw away your panty hose, get some cute tights. I’ll get off my soap box now. :)
