It’s Party Time!

This time of year brings holiday parties & gatherings just about every weekend. I always like to have plenty of dress options available to choose from so I don’t have to worry when something comes up out of the blue. This gorgeous holiday red dress is my favorite dress I will be wearing this season. It’s feminine, chic, so flattering, & perfectly festive. I love that the bow can be worn in the front, in the back, on the side, or around your neck depending on your own personal style. What a fun way to customize your look. 

Today I’ve rounded up some of my favorite holiday dresses at every price point. A good fashion statement does not have to break the bank. Find a look that you love at a price you’re comfortable spending. I’m also adding some of my favorite party accessories to the bottom of this post, so don’t forget to check them out!

Holiday Gift Guide For Him

Holiday Gift Guide For Him

Hello Everyone!

Sometimes, the gentlemen in our lives can be a bit tricky to buy for, I know from experience. Today, I’ve put together a holiday gift guide for him in which all things have been approved by Ben. He either wants, or already has, everything on this list. Weather you’re looking for a sporty gift, a fashionable gift, an outdoorsy gift, or a techie gift, this gift guide covers it all.

We have been getting together with another couple over the past year or two for game nights, & one of our newest favorite games is Ticket to Ride.

I used this Shiseido face wash a while back, & Ben tried it once & quickly fell in love. It’s all he uses to wash his face now!

Every man needs a pair of bluetooth earbuds. They are perfect for using while working out, doing yard work, commuting, etc. Speaking of working out, if your man likes to box at the gym, check out these great gloves.

Are you really a man if you don’t own a pocket knife or multi-tool?

These very affordable men’s dress shoes know how to make a man look goooooood.

Holiday Pajama Sets

Holiday Pajama Sets

Hello Everyone!

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is wearing holiday pajama sets. Every year, my siblings & I get to open one present on Christmas Eve from my grandma, & it’s always a fun & festive pajama set. It’s a sweet tradition that I look forward to every year. This year though, I just couldn’t wait until Christmas Eve! Blogmas is here & it’s putting me in quite the Christmas spirit, so I went ahead & purchased 2 new sets for the holiday season.

The 2 sets I ended up purchasing are both from Target. My first pair is a classic red Christmas plaid with a lovely black edging detail. One thing I love about this set is that I can actually sleep in it! I tend to overheat at night if I have long sleeves & pants on, but this are just light enough, that I sleep through the night with easy. Don’t get turned off by how light they are though. They are perfect to lounge in, and are cozy to cuddle in. These are my idillic holiday pajamas, & the best part about them is they are on sale for $15 total! Jump on this deal!

My second pair is more of a long johns style (do you say long johns or thermal underwear?). I love how it has a classic white background with whimsical poinsettias & holly layered top. This set is oh so cozy while still being clean, bright, & festive. My favorite way to lounge in these pajamas is with my favorite red plaid fuzzy robe & my Boden blue bow slippers (similar here). These items are so affordable with the holiday pajama set being under $20 & the robe being under $35!

DIY Christmas Garland

DIY Christmas Garland

Hello Everyone!

You should know by now, that I love a good garland, & it doesn’t get any better than having a live green one this time of year! This is my second year in a row to make one of these beauties, & with a little time & creativity, you can too! This DIY Christmas garland is sure to bring your house feel more like home.

Items Needed To Make Your DIY Christmas Garland:

A large pile of branches (We always get ours when we get our Christmas tree, from the clippings…for free!)

Green paddle wire

Pruning shears

DIY Christmas Garland

Once you have all of your supplies, I recommend going through each branch & trimming them to make long, narrow pieces. I also like to choose the corner pieces, which I like to hang down lower than the rest of the garland. After you’ve trimmed each piece, now all you have to do is put them together by placing branches together & securing them in place with the wire. This is the part that takes the most time, just because it’s all trial & error. Play with different branches to see what looks best, & add wire to secure heavier pieces. Keep messing with it until it’s just right.

To hang, I made & attached loops from the wire on five spots along the garland for it to be hung on nails (or command hooks) on the wall. It’s fairly easy to hang & lasts well.

Adding the finishing touches is the best part! This year, we simply placed a cheerful “Merry Christmas” garland in its midst, but last year we hung small star ornaments from the branches. You could also string lights in it or add bows to it, literally whatever fits your home best.

Do you love garlands as much as I do? Will you be putting one up in your home this year?
