{gift guide for her | 2019}

SHOP: Merry Tee ($8)| Faux Leather Jacket (similar) | Denim | Sunglasses

If I had to name this look, I’d call it Merry AF!

And since I’m feeling Merry AF, why not share my first Gift Guide for the Holiday season?

It’s officially that time of year of year again and I’m so excited about it!  In previous years, I’ve thought the Christmas music was playing a little too early or Thanksgiving felt like it was being overlooked, but this year – I’m here for it.  

Let’s kick it off with a Gift Guide for her. All the things I truly believe any woman in your life would love and enjoy! I mean hell, I own or want everything on this damn list…HA!

This list took me a long time to put together. I wanted it to be well rounded. With items that are in all price ranges. I found Staub baking dishes for under $50! A white claw coozie. And you know I had to throw in pajamas + slippers.

{greenlight debit card for kids}

SHOP: Sweatshirt | Denim

I was debating if this was necessary to dedicate and entire post to. And the answer is YES, yes it is!

I’ve seen bloggers + moms rave about the GreenLight cards for a while now. So, I pulled the trigger and ordered one for Bay. 100% out of curiosity.

{target tuesday // pajama roundup}

Shop: Pajama Set | Leopard Slippers | Ugg Slippers

Tis the season to be matchy!

Fa la la la la la la la la!

It’s Target Tuesday! So, Bay and I rounded up our favorite pajama sets for you today. They are all under $30 and super cute.

If you know me, then you know Pajamas are my jam! Ha! I love a good pajama set. And if you know me, then you’ve likely seen me in mine multiple times. It’s just my thing, I guess!

I searched high and low for a pair that Bay and I could twin. And this pair got her stamp of approval…lol! We’ve both been living in them since.

When you really want a glass of wine, but then you remember it’s only 8am. So, coffee will have to do. Question – are you an iced coffee or hot coffee in the Winter kinda gal?

I can’t commit to one entirely. I like hot in the morning and an iced in the afternoon. No matter what the weather forecast happens to be.

Weekend plans: just kick it!

Going to keep it short and sweet with a fun list of things I’m diggin this week……

{old navy try-on}

SHOP: Cardigan | Denim (manic monday) | Flats (on sale) | Tote | Sunglasses

Do you ever feel like something is missing in your life, then realize you don’t have a glass of wine in your hand?

That’s how I feel when I look at this photo. I never know what to do with my hands. I’m most relaxed and myself when I’ve got a death grip on a glass of Bogle chardonnay! Ha! Just keepin it really real!

You guys – Old Navy is having a KILLER sale right now. 40% off with NO EXCLUSIONS! This is big! Really, big. Great time to grab some Christmas gifts, if you’re into buying things for others. Christmas shopping for me looks like – one for you, and one for me. FML!

I’m obsessed with the cardigan as a top trend. This one is perfect too. Comes in a shit ton of color options and is currently $24! I sized down to a small and is just the right length for a front tuck.

{asian meatballs}

I need to come up with a new name for this recipe. It just sounds bad. Or is my mind in the gutter? Ha!

Friends – I tried a new air fryer recipe the other night. Annnddd, it was a hit! Bay and I both had it for dinner. Then lunch the next day. We loved it! I’m including oven direction with this recipe as well, since I’ve also made it back in the day before air fryers were a thing.

This recipe tastes so fresh + delicious. The best part – it’s healthy and totally Weight Watchers friendly. You guys, I’m back on the WW train. I’ve been tip toeing around the program for the last month and last week, I am BACK!

And right when I get back, the entire program changes. FML! Now you get 3 options. Say whhhattt? I’m currently using the old program, but I’m attending the Saturday meeting to get all the details. So I can decide which option works best for me. Stay tuned.

{4 ways to wear a utility jacket}

SHOP: Utility Jacket | Cami (similar) | Levi’s (manic monday) | Heels | Sunglasses | Necklace

Hi friends. Doing something a little different today. Do we call it a styling session? I’m not really sure? Ha! I’ve been trying to get this post up since September and somehow just haven’t gotten around to to. Maybe because it’s a little out of my comfort level? Who knows, but I decided today was the day! So here we go…..

I’ve deemed the utility jacket to be a closet staple. It’s a piece that can be worn so many ways. I hope this post inspires you to shop your closet and find ways to style your favorite jacket. Since its cold AF and jackets are all of the sudden very necessary.

I left my heart in San Francisco 🎶
A day in the Bay with my Baes ❤️

Ocean Beach. Sutro Baths. Union Square. Chinatown and the Marina. We hit all our favorite spots in the city. It was a fun weekend.

Somehow I woke up pumped to start the week. Here’s to making a new routine.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Finalize Holiday Cards (last year I didn’t send any out)
  • Figure out the new Weight Watchers plans
  • Try a new air fryer recipe
  • Deck the halls
  • Have Bay Bake something fun + festive for the blog
  • Pick up everything for my Christmas Table (velvet ribbon is hard to find)
  • Grab a coffee and walk the arboretum on a lunch break
  • Delete old photos from my phone
  • Find a fun Christmas pillow for my bed (I’m decorating my room too…lol)

This week on the blog: I’ll be sharing some sale finds. Dedicating a whole post to Bay’s new GreeLight debit card, because it’s that good. I have an Old Navy Try-On, because I keep popping in and finding new + cute things. I have a green jacket styled 4 ways that will be coming too!

Highlights from the weekend…..

At the end of it all, do you know what I really want?

Wine. Pajamas. Pizza. In the exact order. What’s your Friday night plans? Staying in or headed out?

Some Friday’s I get a second wind, but tonight? Tonight is a night of rest at our house. When we asked Bay what she wanted to do this weekend, her response was: “Go to the Fortune Cookie Factory” And Cory made that shit happen, so we’re gearing up for a fun weekend in San Francisco.

Whatever you have planned, make it a good one friends!!!
