Holiday Gift Guides + Favorite Recipes

I know it might seem early to put out holiday gift guides, but the retailers are already rolling on this stuff and we have a feeling people are going to be shopping early this year. And we also wanted to share with you a couple of our favorite recipes we have been making lately...enjoy :)


I am in love with all gifts from Uncommon Goods! They have some of the most unique and personal gifts for ANYONE on your list! Like this homemade Limoncello kit - perfect for my in-laws :) And how about this My Life Story So Far?



I absolutely love this personalized family recipe board - beautiful.





I know someone on my list that would love these calming shower steamers gift set. And the infamous Athleta masks - they really are that good!






How cute are these gingerbread mug buddies??? That sounds so good in my coffee right now! And this wine carrier that turns into a picnic table????







And to round it all off, best selling slippers from Amazon, flannel pj's, and some new wine glasses! I might just buy all of this stuff for myself LOL.






Ok time for some yummy recipes! When my parents came into town a few weeks ago, my mom made this amazing Sausage Cheese Tortellini Soup and we devoured it! Now Elsa is making it at college too!!!! It's sooo good and SUPER easy to make.



For my birthday this year, Emily made me a Chocolate Peanut Butter cake from scratch! It was AMAZING! The peanut butter frosting is to die for!!!!


Happy early shopping friends!!! Have a fabulous weekend!

Although it’s Halloweekend, Christmas is SO SOON!!! So let’s just touch on a few things that are on my list, (mom feel free to get me some of these before christmas😉)!!


Shoes!

Lately I’ve been obsessing over multiple pairs of shoes, I think I’ve turned into a shoe girl like my mama! Recently I’ve been fixing my eyes on Air Jordan sneakers and Adidas ultra boosts! I’ve also been super into slippers recently, really fun to wear around the apartment!







Sweats/Joggers

Since there is no reason to be leaving the apartment except for groceries and food, I haven’t been tapping into my stylish clothes as much! All of my work is on the computer so I gotta be comfy comfy while working hard or I’ll be distracted! I’ve been super into athletic joggers and neutral color sweatpants/sweat sets! Perfect for COVID learning!




Jewelry!

Lots of little earrings and necklaces are needed in my jewelry collection! No matter what you’re wearing I feel as though a good piece of jewelry will spice up the outfit and vibe of your style!! And I’ve definitely been looking into some new pieces recently!



As for my every day life, everything’s pretty normal!! I’m really into salad mixes from target right now but for a while I’ve been feeling stuck with my meals! Nanas soup really helped switch up my daily meals! We made it twice this week!! And I highly recommend it! ;)
