Giving Thanks

DIY-Thanksgiving-Table

Today I’m thankful for…

– the family that’s let me crash their Thanksgiving for the last 8 years.

– two full days off work (insert hands in the air emoji here).

– all of the apple pies.

– a plane ticket home to CA next month (even if it cost me an arm and a leg).

– shopping in my PJs. I’m trying to check names off my Christmas list!

– twinkle lights that give me holiday cheer.

– the Christmas songs I’m going to play on repeat for the next month.

– family (six Ns, always and forever).

Happy Thanksgiving! What are you thankful for?

Warm Christmas

I made it home on Wednesday evening, after a long day of traveling, and since then I’ve just been chilling in my PJs and spending time with my family. My sister came back on Saturday night, so that means that now all four of us are together again for the first time this year (the last time I was home was Christmas 2013).

I spent most of my childhood in CA and here the temperature is usually a balmy 65 degrees on Christmas day. When Boohoo contacted me about recreating an old Christmas photo, I thought it would be fun to do a more wintry version of the Christmas pictures we usually take. I picked out these warm and cozy sweaters and yesterday there was actually a bit of a chill in the air, so it was the perfect time to wear them.

Tonight’s plan is to try and watch Elf again (last night a few of us fell asleep) and enjoy some of the Christmas toffee that a neighbor gave us. I probably won’t be posting anything this week, so I hope you all have an absolutely wonderful Christmas!

Gift Guide 2014: For Her & For Him

gift guide, this holiday, gift ideas under 75, gifts under 75, affordable gifts, gifts for her, gifts for him, gifts for guys, gifts for men I can’t believe I’m already posting the final gift guide for this season! Today’s guide doesn’t have a theme- I just wanted to round up a few more gifts under $75 for women and men. Maybe I should have renamed this one the J. Crew/J. Crew Factory guide because a lot of these items come from there. If you’re looking for a one-stop shop, I’d recommended either store/site because they have lots of great gift ideas (and good sales too). I hope you enjoyed this year’s gift guides! I’ve bought about half of my gifts so far and I plan to do the rest of my shopping once I get settled at home in CA.

Tell me: How’s your holiday shopping going?
