Early Black Friday Deals 2019

Left work early today and I’m looking forward to spending Thanksgiving tomorrow with our family! Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and this year I’m feeling extra grateful and thankful for the biggest blessing coming our way. We keep it pretty casual and spend the day at my in-laws just hanging out with the immediate family before we sit down for dinner. In the past, John and I would make our rounds and visit both families, but after my aunt passed away and with my dad’s poor health over the years, my side of the family no longer cooks so my mom has joined us the past couple of years, and I typically spend Black Wednesday with my dad since he prefers to stay home. How do you celebrate your Thanksgiving holiday?

Also, as we all know, with Thanksgiving comes one of the biggest shopping days of the year, which in recent years has begun the day of and now lasts an entire week (I never shop in stores on Black Friday and always prefer online) so I wanted to share several Black Friday Deals already happening so you can get a head start on your shopping and avoid the crowds. You can skim through my Lookbooks for some inspo. and click on the images to shop or just click on the links of each individual store. I’ll keep adding to the list as new deals happen. I hope you all have a great holiday and enjoy your day however and with whomever you choose to spend it. xo

Newborn Holiday Gift Guide With Walmart

With five weeks left until we meet our girl and only four more weeks until Christmas, today I’m sharing my first holiday gift guide of the season for anyone with a little one on the way!

Even though we still have quite a bit to do at the house in preparation for little Miss C’s arrival, I feel better knowing that a lot of the big things have been crossed off our list such as getting our car seats installed, putting the crib and bassinet together, washing her clothes, and knowing that any essentials we might need now or in the future, we can easily purchase at our local Walmart or Walmart.com. Walmart’s shop online, pick up in-store option and their free 2-day delivery makes shopping (and life) so much easier and less stressful, especially with a newborn on the way.

I’ve been really impressed with Walmart’s modern baby gear and amazing brands (a lot of which we received at our shower) like 4moms, UPPABaby, Owlet, Infant Optics, DockATot, TULA, Parent’s Choice, and Little Star Organics, their new organic bedding and clothing line, so I wanted to put together a newborn holiday gift guide with some of our favorite items and essentials to help make your holiday gifting a little easier.

BEACHWEAR DETAILS:

Swimsuit: Forever 21 [similar] | Cover-Up: Forever 21 [similar] | Sunglasses: LOFT [similar]

One-piece swimsuits have become really popular over the past few years and are my go-to style of swimwear for lounging poolside or relaxing on the beach. There are so many different cuts and styles to choose from (e.g., bandeau, cut-out, ruched, halter, solid vs. pattern, etc.) and they’re virtually flattering on all body types. So to follow up on my last travel post and get you ready for swimsuit season, today I’m sharing some of my favorite one-piece swimsuits to pack on your next beach vacation!

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Her

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend! February is already going by fast and Valentine’s Day is just a few days away so I wanted to share a few gift ideas just for her at various price points for under $50, under $100 and $100+.

John and I don’t typically exchange Valentine’s Day gifts unless it’s something little such as a picture frame with a photo of us, a card and/or flowers (I’ll usually put my art and craft skills to use and make something for him while sending flowers to my mom because she loves flowers), but if you are looking for gift ideas for any special lady in your life such as your mom, bestie, sister, aunt, girlfriend, spouse, etc., you can use my Valentine’s Day gift ideas to help make your shopping less stressful. xx
