A handmade christmas with Uncommon Goods

November 30, 2016

The holidays are literally just around the corner. And that means one thing, shopping for our love ones! I love shopping for my friends and family! And I love unique and different things to give to my love ones! It is always so wonderful to find unique gifts, especially around the holidays.

That’s why I am so excited to be teaming up today with UncommonGoods. To bring you some of my favorite unique handmade Jewelry items for the Holiday season! This kicks off my first holiday series and I could not be anymore excited! Where else can you get amazing items filled with quality and uniqueness.

In total I picked three gorgeous handmade items, coming from all around the world and also fair trade. I love this unique necklace that says I love you, in Morris code! It is beyond cool and I can not wait to give it to my mom for Christmas this year! I know she will love the personalization and the uniqueness of this item! I also love this bracelet that was crafted in Columbia I love the idea of sharing something with someone that came from another country. And finally this amazing Abdi Maasai Bead Necklace that is also fair trade. I fell in love with all the unique pieces as soon as they came. Believe me they are better in person, the detail and the beauty of each of these items is amazing.

This holiday season if you want unique and amazing gifts this holiday season defiantly look at UncommonGoods!

Some of my Favs for Black Friday 2016! 

The perfect sweater for Thanksgiving from Zaful!

November 21, 2016

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of the year. It not only does it kick off the holiday season. But it also brings family together which is one of my favorite things! This year I am hosting my very first Friendsgiving at my house! Which I am so excited about, so much planning has already went into this party! I cant wait to bring old and new friends together and watch them all mesh! 

Recently, I jumped on the whole turtleneck sweater trend! I am in love with this gorgeous one from Zaful! It is the perfect sweater to have for Thanksgiving. The fabric is so comfy and so soft and is a easy layering piece to have in ones closet. But also so warm, it was chiller this day and I was perfectly warm in it! The best part is Zaful has such a great selection of sweaters right now which if you ask me is aweomse! I am obsessed with how affordable they are too! (college budget over here) 

Zaful is having a wonderful black friday giveaway! The giveaway ends November 31st. And the winner gets a $100 dollar gift card. 

Wishing you all a wonderful Monday!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

We are officially half way through another super stressful week! I am so ready for next week to be here! I am hosting Friendsgiving next Wednesday and I am so excited! It is our second annual Friendsgiving, and I love getting the opportunity to have friends old and new come together to celebrate! 

Today I am talking all The Mint Julep Boutique , and how they are my new obsession! Literally I am obsessing over this gorgeous Slouchy tunic from them! It is one of the best pieces I have right now for the transition to fall/winter! These tunics come in so many different colors which is perfect if you ask me! I love the variety of colors, and styles! This rust color is one of my favorites and I think it is perfect to wear into late winter! I paired this gorgeous slouchy tunic with this Target scarf that I got in the dollar bin! Yes! The dollar bin at target has some of the best stuff in it! Pair some OTK boots and you have an easy and super comfy outfit, perfect for the holidays! I ordered mine in a size medium for the solid purpose of I like things to be a little baggy and of course cover my bum!

Check out The Mint Julep Boutique  and check out all there amazing and super comfy Slouchy Tunics!

Closet Staple: The utility dress

November 9, 2016

Happy Wednesday everyone! 

I am recovering from last nights nail bitting presidental election! I literally was clued to CNN all night long! This was my first presedental election ever that I was able to vote in! And I could not be anymore prouder to be an American, and a voter! 

Now on to today's post! I know you all are thinking why is she styling this utility dress again! Back in  the summer I bought this wine colored dress. And then I styled it in late August with a summer spin. Now that it is way chiller, I finally can go and add some layers to this dress! My favorite thing about this dress is how much of a closet staple it is! It is one of those dresses that you can wear all year long! Which is something I really love, since I am such a versitle kinda girl with my clothes!
