Winter Embroidery + A B.F.F. Gift Guide








Good Morning All! And Happy Friday! I'll be spending my day trying to catch up on House work and Blogging obligations. And hopefully I may even get around to decorating the bare Christmas tree that's been sitting in or living room all week.

But, before I hop into all of that I thought I would procrastinate a little bit by sharing this cute new top and some fun Christmas Gift ideas!




I grabbed this super cute top last week and I am obsessed with the bright floral embroidery on it. Personally, this is one trend that I'm glad to see going strong throughout the year. I loved my embroidered gingham and chambray over the summer and now that we're getting back into the deeper shades and heavier textures, I'm still flower obsessed.

This top has a high neck, a snug fit and the cutest gathered sleeves. My only recommendation would be to check the length measurement if you are a tall girl. I could have done with an extra two inches on my longer torso. But, that's just personal preference.

You can grab it HERE for under $30 and see how other fashionable ladies styled it as well. I LOVE that some of them styled it over a white button down. I need to try that next!

Now, so we have a little bit more to talk about than just my obsession with embroidered flowers, I thought I would share some fun ideas for Christmas gifts for your Bestie! You can check out any of these pieces, just by clicking on the photo in the collage!



BEAUTY

You all know I'm beauty obsessed, so I love the idea of spoiling your favorite person with some of your favorite things. If I could stock my girls up on my favorite products I'd throw in a beauty blender, the Jacklyn Hill Pallette and the best drugstore mascara on the market, at the moment. (Cheaper Options could be your favorite Nail Polish wrapped in some adorable packaging!

I also love the idea of spoiling them with a luxury item, that they normally wouldn't buy themselves. Most people don't want to spend $40 on a tube of lipstick, but it's still cheap enough that you can treat your beauty loving BFF to one without breaking your bank!

MAKE HER LAUGH

I'm all about funny gifts! And since me and my girls all enjoy a glass of bubbly now and then I think this Prosecco Pong Game and Might Be Wine Tumbler are amazingly hilarious!

HONOR A SHARED OBSESSION

Over the last few years most of my best girl friends have moved around the country which puts most of our interactions into daily group texts. And one thing that we're constantly talking about in our group is our favorite T.V. Show, Outlander. Every Sunday night we catch up and chat about the show and what we thought of it. So, I think getting them an Outlander themed gift is the perfect nod to our shared love for time traveling romance! Obviously, this is an idea that can be suited to your own likes and obsessions.

ENCOURAGE HER

We all know life gets tough sometimes. So why not send some encouragement in the form of your favorite uplifting book. If you've read something lately that has lifted your spirits or filled your heart why not spread that around? We could all use a little positivity, especially around the holidays!

Yummy and Educational Boredom Buster for the Kids this Holiday!



Hello, Hello! I hope you're all recovering ok from the Weekend sales! I definitely put an unneeded dent in our bank account. BUT i did get a lot of great new things I can't wait to share with you!

Until then, I wanted to let you guys in on a fun little activity that was inspired by the Holiday Break last week and today's Sponsor, Goldfish.





Even though last week flew by and I never felt like I had a moments rest, Hudson still found time to complain of boredom. I'm sure you're familiar with that whole routine. So I headed to pinterest (As one does) in search of easy DIY pre-school activities. There are a ton of them HERE if you're in need.

But this is the one that needed the least amount of preparation and kept him happy and playing the longest.

Hudson has been loving these sort of matching games lately. So, I thought this Christmas Tree printable was perfect for him. And it works wonderfully with these colored Goldfish that we always have around the house.







Feel free to print some out for your kids, the next time you're looking for some quick and easy entertainment.




There are tons of other similar ideas HERE that will spark your kids' imagination and love for learning over the upcoming Holidays!

Also, you can head HERE to learn more about the colors on Goldfish Colors Crackers. Did you know the colors on each cracker are sourced from plants, like the reddish seeds of the Achiote Tree?! Read more HERE!

And let me know what ways you're busting boredom over the holiday break! I'm always looking for new ideas!

Super Easy Parmesan Hash Brown Cups



Hey Y'all! I'm just popping in really quick to share a quick little hack I just discovered. To be completely honest, I've probably been living under a rock. But, Simply Potatoes® Shredded Hash Browns has given me another way to simplify dinner time without sacrificing real ingredients.



I've personally gotten in such a dinner rut lately. Protein. Veggie. Rice. That's been on repeat forever. So like any other self respecting mom that's feeling stuck, I went to Pinterest for help! While looking up potato dishes I found tons of hash brown recipe variations that looked delicious. So when I headed to the store to buy potatoes I ended up grabbing these pre-shredded hash browns by Simply Potatoes. And I'm glad I did, because they saved me about a million hours. (Slight exaggeration.)



I decided to start simple with ingredients I always have around the house. That way if I liked the finished product I would always be able to remake it. 

I combined the Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns in a bowl with shredded Parmesan, chopped green onions, chopped Canadian bacon and olive oil, salt / pepper to taste. 



Then I filled up my muffin tin and baked them at 350 degrees for roughly 40 minutes, when they began to look golden brown. 



Overall, I'm so impressed with how they turned out and super excited to try some different variations of the recipe. Now, that I've conquered my dinner rut, I think I'll start playing with breakfast. I'm thinking I'll add some egg and bell pepper into the mix! 

If you're in a rut like me, there are TONS of delicious Potato recipes HERE that you can try! 


Also, can I just say while I was on the site looking up recipe ideas, I learned that Simply Potatoes donates leftover skins to local farmers to use for animal feed! How amazing is that?!

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!

Your One Stop Shop To Surviving Fall!




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!



Well, as I mentioned earlier, I thought I would do a fun haul for you of all of the Autumn goodies I've been snatching up at the best prices!

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.



Now, let's talk makeup! Because you know my greatest pleasure in life is shopping for makeup! Haha! That glow on my skin is from one of my favorite beauty pieces from this haul! I got a gorgeous Highlighter for only $4.68! And I've been wearing it everyday since it came in the mail!

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. 



Also, not pictured are the worlds most comfortable pair of black joggers which are currently on my legs! Haha!
