Lilly Pulitzer Pajama Christmas Party: 13 Years
Our 13th pajama Christmas party! Can you believe it? I can't. I never imagined that after our first Christmas party which was not a pajama party, that we would continue this tradition every year. And yet here we are again, 13 years of friendship behind us with so many memories that bond us for a lifetime. A huge thanks and appreciation to Lilly Pulitzer from all of us for providing us for the second year with the most comfortable, luxurious pajamas. My heart is bursting with my love for the Lilly brand and their generosity of support.
Gift a Unique Gift Card with Options + a Giveaway
Gift cards - the ideal gift that guarantees it will be used and not be regifted, right?! Ha! Sometimes though, picking out a gift card can be confusing - you want that person to like where you are telling them to retrieve their gift and give them a card that's a little more glamorous than one they can pay their bills with. Happy Cards is the versatile gift card it isn't a credit gift card or a gift card to one location - Happy Cards are themed gift cards that allow the gift card recipient to use the gift card balance at several stores. You can find Happy Cards at neighborhood grocery stores - Safeway, Kroger, Albertsons, and Giant Eagle, so the next time you're at the store, grab a few and cross off your grocery and Christmas list at the same time.
Help Keep your Information Secure While Online Shopping this Holiday
You may already know I'm a big online shopper - and with the holidays and this home expansion coming up, the quicker the better to order gifts online and wait on delivery. I also don't find much joy in the crowded malls, and often find myself frustrated finding parking spots so I try to tackle my Christmas shopping list online. I will make it to the mall at least once just to get the Christmas vibes and spirit but just once, ha! Do you ever worry about the information you pass through the Internet - especially if you are on public wi-fi? What about identity theft?
Getting ready with cleaner beauty products by Beautycounter
When it comes to beauty products, I have become an eyeshadow and lipstick junkie. Lately I've developed a fascination or rather obsession, with eyeshadows. I've gotten bored with the daily look and typical go-to trio brown shadow look I've used over the years. After watching various YouTube makeup tutorials I've become inspired by different looks and shadow colors are so fun to use to create unique looks - gotta love the education out there! Beautycounter created a limited-edition eyeshadow palette featuring 18 high pigmented shades. They vary from cool to warm shades, matte and satin finishes. It also has a removable mirror and double-ended brush for application.
This Holiday Give a Tree with a Tree Card and Certificates
With the home expansion and a Christmas list, we are trying to save money in so many ways this season. The home expansion is on the top of our minds right now. With any expansion, there are unexpected things that have come up (though I expect that too, haha). Then there's the realization you still have to furnish the space. All this to say, this holiday season we are looking for great ways to give back but also show our loved ones that we are thinking about them.
Get Your Home Holiday Ready With These Products
I've been shooting a lot more in my house, have you noticed? The light is pouring in through the windows now that the patio is taken down so I'm taking advantage of it! I also love shooting in my own home, it's like I get to invite you into my house (and also makes shoots easier). The goal is to shoot more in my own home this next year. When the expansion goes up (replacing where the patio was) we are adding a skylight anyway so we will still get some light in this area. And once the expansion is done, more entertaining for guests!
Sending out Business Christmas Cards + Client Gift Ideas
There are so many things on my holiday to-do list, and I thought I'd get Christmas up by November 1 but it's looking more like mid-November but who knows with me! I might clear the schedule and say, "Make way for Christmas!" because I tend to say I will get to it next week and then I find my second wind and I get it done that day!
