Gift Guide | Mad for Plaid

Plaid screams holiday season to me. It's a go-to for holiday parties, home decor and just about anything else I can get wrapped in its known patterns. I always feel cozy and snuggly with plaid—especially a plaid flannel. So, to me, it signifies warmth and love all wrapped up in a cozy gift.

Gift Guide | #GirlBoss

Ah, the CEO-in-the-making! The #GirlBoss is a sharp shooter who works long hours and still manages to cram in regular workouts, coffee outings, and dinner and drinks with her besties. She's always on top of things without skipping a beat. So, just how does this girl stay on the move and on top of the world?

All Striped Out

I've officially entered that buzz mode of the holidays, and I don't see time slowing down for the rest of the year. My calendar booked up faster than I imagined, but when it comes to holiday festivities can there every be too many on your list? I think not. Thankfully, Florida is finally starting to cooperate on the temperature front. Indian summer is real, y'all—and it sucks.

This week our highs finally dropped into the 60s and while the temperature for Thanksgiving is showing as 78 right now, surely we can get it a tad bit cooler, don't you think? We've had a lot of 85 degree Thanksgivings in the past, and I'm not a fan. Something about sitting around in shorts and flip-flops ruins the feel a bit.

I've been in a dessert idea quandary for Thanksgiving tomorrow, but I think I've narrowed it down enough that I could make a final decision, get to the grocery, and get it baked today before settling in for Hallmark's newest Christmas movie tonight.

Beauty Addict | Gift Guide

Day two of gift guides, and we're just getting started y'all! Beauty products make some of the best gifts because a lot of times they are items we shy away from buying ourselves. We can always validate a quick trip down the makeup aisles at Target and picking up a few lipsticks or random items because of the price point. Yet, the items we really want, we continue to walk by in the store, drool over, and leave them there for another round later on.

Gift Guide | Monogram It

It's the first day of gift guides, and they're running all week! Monogramming has hit a huge surge in popularity over the past few years, and for good reason. You're able to take a simple gift and make it a bit more special with some personalization. I love a gold-foil monogram on a tote or a set of monogram earrings—classy and traditional items that will never go out of style. Monograms work for anyone on your list: co-worker, girlfriend, mom, sister, best friend. You really can't go wrong!

"My rule is, if it's not moving, monogram it." —Reese Witherspoon
