What He Wants For Christmas


Happy Wednesday Guys! Today I'm sharing my first Gift Guide for the Holiday Season. This is the moment where I show you the things I've had my eye on for myself and loved ones. And I will hopefully share some good deals along the way!

If you have been following me on Instagram then you know we spent last week traveling through the Ozarks on a family road trip. It was lots of fun and lots of stress. Funny how 13 hours on the road with your loved ones can be both of those things. A big part of the stress would come from the fact that I was missing my better half. Poor Jamy had to stay behind to work and hold down the fort. (The joys of self employment).



Needless to say, I was more than thrilled to see him when we got home. And he has surely been my most favorite person since then. So I thought as an ode to him, my first Holiday Post would be all about the man himself.

I've compiled together a few of the things I would like to grab for him this Christmas and put them all together in the graphic below. Most of the items in the photo should be clickable and bring you directly to the site. And if they do not, I will list the links below it.





If you're looking for a new fragrance for the man in your life, I would highly suggest this one by Alford and Hoff. It has been Jamy's go to for the last year. And I still love the scent that lingers in our room after he sprays it. I almost wish they would make a slightly more feminine version for me.

The Nordstrom Sale has tons of great clothing, shoes and accessories for the entire family right now at great prices. For the men in your life they have brands like Herschel, Nike and Adidas at major discounts. But they are all selling out fast so if you see something you like then I would act on it soon!

I love the idea of indulging his inner geek. A fun fashion accessory or home item like that R2D2 Coffee Press would be tons of fun. Think Geek is a great place to shop for items like that.

If your man is a techy, then I would grab him some bluetooth headphones or this new Sonos speaker that is compatible with Alexa. I should also mention that my husband suggested I add the Xbox One X to this list.... But that will for sure run you a pretty penny.

As I shared on Facebook this week, Target is selling these amazing gift sets, called 12 days of socks! They're like little advent calendars filled with themed socks for every kind of fan in your family. Star Wars. Harry Potter. Princesses... etc. 


For the athletic man, Jamy suggests that you check out Tasc Outerwear. I am a particular fan of the company for a few reasons. They make my very favorite pair of leggings. They are from right here in Louisiana. And they make the softest, eco friendly fabrics imaginable. This Shirt is Jamy's favorite. And I plan on grabbing him a few more Tasc pieces for Christmas.

Finally, I thought it would be fun to give him something that will keep on giving. Like a new hobby. He has been talking about learning the guitar for months now. So I really want to buy him one and some lessons.


I would love to hear what you are planning to buy for the men in your life. Let me know in the comments!

Halloween: Not Your Average Princess


Happy Halloween! Or day after Halloween, depending on when you're reading this! We had such a fun night trick or treating with our family so I wanted to share some photos of all of the fun. I'm always down for a Family Halloween costume. But trying to nail down a theme that a 4 year old boy and a 2 year old girl can agree on is tough. So Holland and I teamed up for a Mommy & Daughter costume while Jamy & Hud had a little transformers fun!



The idea for Holland's costume was born from the way she plays with her big brother. She is princess obsessed, specifically, Cinderella. But she loves any chance she gets to play with and be like Hud. So while Hudson will play super heros and bust into a room with the loud introduction of "I'm SUPERMAN!" Holland will immediately follow suit with "And I'm RELLA" And that is how Super 'RELLA was born!




I let her pick out her favorite Cinderella dress from Amazon and then ordered this cape. I grabbed some iron on letters from Hobby Lobby and Super 'Rella was a reality. I decided to go as her Fairy Godmother!

I love this costume so much, because it's the perfect way to be. A Princess with attitude. Growing up with no sisters and an older brother, I've always been drawn to super heroes and comics. But you can probably tell, that I still love some glam. Holland's Super Rella costume reminds me of that feeling. Being a girly girl that doesn't always fit into the typical "girl" mold.



Hudson went through about fifty costume changes before he finally settled on Side Swipe from Transformers. Luckily, we had a few things laying around already to throw together an Optimus Prime costume for Jamy. 


Now, I'm off to bed. How many of you are going to be taking advantage of the post Halloween sales this week?! It's my favorite time to stock up on costumes for dress up play and decorations for the next year!

XOXO

White After Labor Day: How to Wear It



Taking a sharp detour from last week's post which was all about my love for saturated reds and black. Today, I'm talking about Whites! Why it's definitely acceptble to wear them past Labor Day. And how to give them that warm Fall/Winter Vibe.



White After Labor Day: How did the rule get started?
Well, to be honest, I'm not sure that anyone knows the exact moment or reason this rule was born. There is some discussion on functionality. Wearing white and paler colors in the summer heat absorbs less sun and thus keeps you cooler. Which would have been paramount before daisy dukes and tank tops were socially acceptable.

But the main reason that I have read over an over through the last few years, has to do with wealth and class. Some say, it was a cold war between old money and the nouveau riche. The historically wealthy wanted to distinguish themselves from those that bought their way into society. And what better way to do that than set up arbitrary fashion rules that only insiders would know about or care to follow.

 Others say that wearing white showed your wealth.  Because, having the money to 'summer' elsewhere, meant you could escape the dirt and grime of the city and work life. No need for practical colors or fabrics when you're free to spend your days at your leisure.


However white came to be banned, I think we can all agree that the original reasons are no longer justifiable. Textiles, social standards (and laundering methods) have come a long way over the last century. And brands that epitomize luxury and tradition have been releasing winter whites for years.


So yes, it is ok to wear white ALL year round.

Now, how do you work it into the colder months?
Play with textures, heavier fabrics and layering. Throw on some neutral colored accessories and shoes. And you've created the perfect winter white look. Or in my case 'Fall White' look.

I've pulled together some of my favorite winter white pieces for you here. Just click on the item to shop.


This is the first week that it's felt like Fall in Louisiana. Chilly in the mornings and warm and sunny in the afternoon. Which is why I opted for casual distressed jeans, booties and a warm cardigan over a flowy white tank.

This particular cardigan was sent to me by Shein to share with you all. And I love it. Funny enough, I've had my eye on it for years. I think I've even linked the camel toned version of it in wish lists throughout the last year. And now that I finally have my hands on it, I'm pretty excited.

It's a perfect fit. Warm. And a gorgeous shade of grey. The ONLY downside, is those pocket flaps are purely decoration. But, for the price I'm completely ok with it! You can check it out HERE. And the rest of my outfit in the widget below.

The white purse is by Local Louisiana designer, Savvy Root.


My Favorite Fall Color Scheme


Good Morning! And Happy Friday! If you followed my Instagram stories yesterday, then you saw that I was stuck at home with a sick baby! Well, I guess I have to stop calling her my baby, since she will be 3 in a few months... Before I run down a rabbit hole of nostalgia and heartache over my babies growing too fast... let's jump into something fun, like fall fashion!

Unfortunately, the weather doesn't want to get on bored with the fact that it's fall. So, even though I can't pull out my scarves and heavy coat I can still rock my favorite fall colors! I made a similar post around this time last year, wearing this exact maroon duster. And a year later, nothings changed. I still want my wardrobe to be all shades of maroons and blacks!





These boots from Target have been on repeat, since I bought them last month! The rest of my clothing is from last year, as I'm trying to save my dollars by shopping my closet more and the stores less. (Wish me luck.)

I did however put together a little inspo board, of all the fall vibes I want in my life. You can check out each of these pieces, simply by clicking on them within the photo! Personally, I'm majorly crushing on those Karen Walker Sunnies.




Also, I wanted to share some of my fav accessories lately! This Kendra Scott Bracelet has been living on my wrist lately. And I'm obsessed with this rose gold Watch and it's matching cuff! Head HERE to check it out AND you can use the code 15BRITTANY at checkout for a discount!

Good Afternoon!! How cute it this Ruffle Sweater!

I know I mentioned in a recent post that I had been getting lots of Online shopping done, lately! There are few earthly pleasures more gratifying than a doorstep filled with boxes! haha!

I grabbed all of these products at Walmart.Com for under $70! And when you see it all, you're not going to believe me!



First off, let's talk about the Sweater! I'm obsessed with the ruffle details! It reminds me of some of the high end pieces I've had my eye on recently... but this one was only $12.88! Seriously. Twelve Dollars.

I also picked up a great loose powder, a new brush and a super cute eye shadow palette. My total cost for all of the beauty products was only $34!



Next in the Walmart haul is some home decor! I love theme-ing out my house for holidays! And if you've ever been to my place.. My interior aesthetic is  like... white on top of white. (If I could just live in a completely white house with white furniture I would be ecstatic... but that's another story.) Needless to say, I had to pick up these gorgeous white and gold pumpkins for my console and dining room table! And I got two of them for under $8! Technically they are "Soup Bowls" but to be honest, mine are filled with chocolate.



Finally I had to grab something for the kids.. I got Hudson an accessory for his Halloween costume! And Holland some crayons.

BOO It Forward, With A Fun New Holiday Tradition

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser, MARS Incorporated. All opinions are mine alone. #BOOItForward #CollectiveBias


Good Morning Ladies! Today, I wanted to share some of my favorite things about this time of year. Specifically some of our favorite traditions;

Corn Mazes, Pumpkin patches and Pumpkin Painting (still a little too young for carving). And today I'm sharing one of our newer traditions with you!

The first time I heard of "BOOing" someone was at my sister in law's house a couple of years ago. We were all carving and painting pumpkins one night when there was a knock at her door. When she answered though, she was greeted by a package of sweets with a letter saying that she had been BOO'd and now it was her turn to BOO it forward!

To BOO someone, you simply put together a fun little treat for a neighbor, co-worker or family member. And anonymously leave it at their door with a message letting them know they were BOO'd and they now have to pass on the love by BOOing one of their friends.

(For my Louisiana friends, it's like finding the baby in the king cake!)



I absolutely love this tradition because it's a fun and cheerful way to celebrate Halloween. And it's a fun way to get the whole family involved in spoiling others.

This year, I think I came up with a couple of cute BOO kits and I wanted to share them with you, because they're so simple. And absolutely adorable, if I do say so myself!

The first thing I did was buy some Halloween Candy from WalMart! And fill up some cute Halloween themed gift bags!



Then, I got started on the best part... These super sweet Bat and Ghost balloons!


HERE IS WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
CANDY
GIFT BAG

BALLOONS (WHITE & BLACK)
CARD STOCK (WHITE BLACK AND PINK)
TULLE
SCISSORS
TAPE
GOOGLY EYES (OR MAKE YOUR OWN FROM CARD STOCK)
STRING OR BALLOON STICK (DEPENDING ON WHETHER YOU USE HELIUM OR OXYGEN TO BLOW UP BALLOONS)


HAPPY BAT:Blow up Black Balloon and tape on eyes
Cut wings, ears and mouth out of card stock. (I free handed mine, but you can always google search "bat wings template" if you want a precise pattern)
Tape the card stock pieces to the balloon.
Either attach the balloon to your BOO kit with string or a plastic balloon stick.

SWEET GHOST:

Wrap white tulle around your white balloon, then gather and tie at the base with string.
Attach Googly Eyes.
You can either leave it like this or make a mouth and a cute bow/bow-tie for your ghost!

Now, Let’s do Some Friendly Neighborhood BOO'ing



We dropped our smiley bat off at a neighbor's first! And wouldn't you know my camera decided to die right before we dropped off our sweet and girly ghost!?! But as soon as we dropped them off, we knocked and ran! We made the whole thing completely anonymous and left a fun note letting them know that it was their turn to BOO someone next! (I wouldn't be mad, if they coincidentally BOO'd us back... I love me some Candy!)



Speaking of candy we grabbed this Humungo bag of MARS® Candy that's exclusive to Wal Mart! It has all of my favorite candy in it! And I love the character theme on the bag!

While you're at Wal Mart make sure to pick up your BOO Kit items too! All of the cute Halloween Bags, Cards and Stickers we used were from the American Greetings Halloween selection.

Also, if you're stuck on what to write in your BOO card, You can print out this pre-designed one HERE!

YOU CAN EVEN SHOP DIRECTLY FROM THIS IMAGE BY CLICKING ON THE PRODUCTS!


If you decide to join in the fun and 'BOO it forward', then PLEASE Let me know! I would even love to see pictures of your creations!
