You know when you audibly gasp when you find something you love and absolutely need and can't live without and you immediately take out your wallet and hand your soul over to the devil retailer who instantly made you make a purchase?

No?

 Just me with this jacket? Oh ok. Bye.

But reallllllly. That actually happened to me when I found this embroidered beauty. It is absolutely STUNNING. I think it might be my most gorgeous purchase of the year in fact. It's a little pricier, but I ordered it using a promo code so I felt like it was totally justified. ;) 

On another note, Ellie (my fur-baby), was sooo needy when we were taking these pics. She constantly wanted to be next to me and would try to climb up my legs so I would hold her. Usually when we take her with us to take pics, she just chills and sniffs around a bit. But this time she was going nuts. I feel like she gets needier and needier every time we come back from a trip. We have only taken a handful of longer trips without her in the 3 years we've had her, but it's still so traumatic for her! I can't figure out how to help her separation anxiety, so if you have any tips for me, I'd love to know.

I'm off to run a ton of holiday errands. Hope you guys have the best Thursday. xoxo

THE BEST STOCKING STUFFERS UNDER $50



The holiday season is upon us!! And with it comes gifting to our beloved family and friends. I personally lovelovelove giving gifts (it's my love language), but I don't have millions of dollars to spend on people so I thought I'd put together a gift guide of the best stocking stuffers under $50. There is something for all the special ladies in your life. A 2017 planner for the gal who maps out every minute of her day, a liquid lipstick set with the prettiest nude shades for the beauty buff, rose gold and baby blue ear buds for the fitness chick, etcetera! All you do is click on the + sign in the black square next to each image above, and a webpage will open with all the product details.

I'll be putting together more of these holiday gift guides, so if there's a specific category you'd like to see a guide for, please let me know! Be sure to check out the rest of the stocking stuffer ideas under $50 in the scrollbar below! I'm personally eyeing that mermaid blanket. So dang cute!

OAHU, HAWAII TRAVEL DIARY




Happy Monday my little chickens! I wanted to share some photos from our little Hawaiian vacation. We were fortunate enough to be able to spend Thanksgiving in Oahu with my family this year. It was exactly what my soul needed. (Although I was basically in tears when we dropped off our little baby Ellie to a dog hotel. Gahhhh why can't dog be allowed to go everywhere like human babies are?! It needs to happen already.) I don't get to see my family very often since we haven't lived in the same state since I left for college, so it's always so heart-warming to spend time with them. We ate entirely too much, did lots of touristy things, and soaked in all the beauty that Oahu has to offer. 

Traveling with my family made me realize how precious every moment is, and how excited I am to travel with my own little clan one day. I've found that even when I travel to the same place, it is always an entirely different experience based on who I'm traveling with. It's my dream to show my future kids the world, just like my parents did with me... because it truly is a beautiful one we live in.

I have lots of fun gift guides for everyone on your list coming your way, so make sure to stop back to check those out! xoxo
