Hello everybody! How has the start of the new year been treating you? These last few weeks have just been so busy with the holidays, that I have to admit I’ve gotten a bit behind with the blog (oops), but don’t worry I’m back on track now and super excited to share this post because, I’m sharing what I was gifted this year for both Christmas and my birthday! Any January babies out there? Me too! My bday is just ten days after Christmas, so it’s always a lot of celebrating for me back to back. I’ve actually never shared what I’ve been gifted before, this will be a first, so if you see anything you like, as usual I’ll be linking everything in this blog. Let’s get started!
Happy New Year friends! Can you believe we made it to 2019! What a year 2018 has been! I don’t know about you, but I’m very excited for the new year. I’m excited to continue to experience, share, create and inspire not only on my blog, but on my YouTube Channel and Instagram account as well. I wanted to take a moment to thank each of you for supporting my social media journey. As a new blogger and YouTuber it means a lot to me because I put a lot of time, energy, thought, and preparation in to each piece of content I create! So, I thought I would do something a little different this week and get a little personal by re-introducing myself, and how this blog came to be.
Thousands of twinkling Christmas lights lining the tress of the romantic San Antonio River Walk. The world’s largest boots lit up with Christmas stars overlooking holiday shoppers. A beautiful colorful Christmas tree that stands tall amongst a charming downtown park. From giant ornaments and reindeer, to the biggest light show in Texas! San Antonio is a Christmas lover’s dream with everything it has to offer. The city is romantic, family friendly, and Instagram worthy all at the same time, especially during the holiday season. As a local born and raised, here is my travel guide to the best things to see and do for the holidays in San Antonio, Texas. So sit back and enjoy!
Happy December! I can’t believe Christmas is just around the corner. Two weeks our and counting! There’s always so much to do between present shopping, wrapping gifts, hanging lights, getting your holiday outfits together for your fam…the list goes on! I personally love all this though, and the one thing I love the most is decorating my home for Christmas. I’d like to think I go all out for the most part, but the one thing I am exceptinally proud of is my holiday table setting. Since John and I first moved in to our home almost four years ago, I’ve continued to add a little more to my table every year, and this year was no different! If you’re stomped on where or how to start decoring your table, I’ve got you covered in this style post. The majority of these pieces are from Pier 1 Imports and currently on sale. So, let’s get right in to it!
Happy December! Can you believe fall is almost over and Christmas is just around the corner? I can’t. These last few weeks have just flown by with Thanksgiving and then Black Friday/Cyber Monday. Did you do any shopping over the holiday break? This year I sure did, but mostly all online. I started a few days before Black Friday and finished up late Cyber Monday night, and just wanted to share with you some of the great purchases I made. In fact, most of these pieces are still on sale for the holidays, which is great for you if you end up falling in love with some of the items I snagged. So, lets get started!
Tis the season! Can you believe just a few days ago we were celebrating Thanksgiving? Then Black Friday took over, and now it’s already Cyber Monday! I feel like the holidays always go by so fast, but that’s probably because of all the crazy busy fun we get to have….from decorating, to gift shopping, to all the Christmas traditions. One of my personal favorite Christmas traditions is decorating our tree! This is something I look forward to every year. I always have those few ornaments that are extra special, or just EXTRA if you know what I mean 😉 and of course, every year I also try to add a few new ones to the mix. I recently took advantage of some Black Friday sales and made a few ornament purchases. So, I thought I’d do a little ornament haul for you in case you need a little inspiration to decorate that gorgeous tree of yours! A few of these ornaments I’ve had for a few years, but luckily they have all been restocked for you. Enjoy!
The City of Angels…growing up in the music industry I always dreamed about moving to LA and walking in to Capitol Records with demo in hand! I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to actually check out this amazing city, but last month in October my husband, two-year old, and myself visited for a short mini-vacation, and let me tell you the city did not disappoint! Did I get to walk in to Capitol Records with my demo?? Nah, but our hotel was ironically just around the corner, and the Hollywood star that I cared to see the most is also placed at the front entrance to the record label so that’ll have to do 😉 If you are headed to the city of angels anytime soon then read on to follow everything we did, saw, and ate in Los Angeles. Oh, and if you are looking for some of the best Instagram spots in LA, I was on a mission to get as many photos for the Gram as I could, and of course I’ll have to make it back anther time to continue that mission just because the city is so big I couldn’t get to everything! Hope you enjoy my Los Angeles Travel Guide!
