Sherpa Vest



Happy Monday!
There's only a couple of weeks left before Christmas! Can you believe it?! Today I wanted to share this comfy outfit I wore out Christmas Shopping the other day. This flannel comes in a few other colors & is currently on sale. I love wearing flannels during the winter months because they're festive & comfy. I like to pair them with a vest or cute accessories so it doesn't look "frumpy". This sherpa vest is the perfect one to pair with a flannel! I think there's a fine line when wearing flannels of what looks put together and what looks like you just awoke from a nap! To finish off this outfit I wore one of my favorite pair of boots - these have a good tread on the bottom and are perfect for walking around in as they're comfortable & flat. 

Hope you've enjoyed!

DIY Christmas Wreath





Hi All! 
 Since you all enjoyed my DIY Fall Wreath so much I thought it would be fun to make a DIY Christmas Wreath. The base of this is actually a fake wreath from Walmart that cost $2.47. With the added materials it ended up costing me around $10 dollars- way better than spending upwards of $50 dollars for a pre-made wreath! And you can add all your own personal touches.

Materials // 
-Fake Wreath
-Snow Spray / Flocking Spray
- Pinecones
-Decorative Picks
- Thin Wire

How To // 
-First, spray your wreath with the snow spray- I did this in my dining room on the floor with a bit of newspaper down- I then let the wreath dry for a full 24 hours- If you touch it too soon the white snow will wipe right off

- Next, pick the theme- I wanted a pretty simple wreath with pinecones as the major focal points.

- Set out your decorations on the wreath- This is the most important part- really plan out how you want it to look- I rearranged the items a few times prior to committing. 

- Finally, secure your decorations with a thin wire- this part is a little time consuming as you have to be pretty methodical on how you attach the items- I ended up wrapping the wire around the pine cones first. 

All done! This project is so simple that it would be silly for you to spend over $15 on any wreath! Make your own- I promise its fun!

Holiday Party Ideas


Happy December everyone! 

With the official countdown to Christmas now underway I thought it would be fun to share 10 themed Holiday party ideas! These would be great for groups of friends or families for something a little different than the traditional Christmas party. 

1 // Christmas Movie Party
Invite your friends over & have them bring their favorite holiday movie- write down all the titles and pull one out of a hat, that will be the movie you watch! Supply festive holiday treats like hot cocoa & cookies! 

2 // Cookie Decorating Party 
Make a batch of plain sugar cookies or buy some pre-made- put out bowls of frosting- sprinkles and other cookie toppings for everyone to decorate with! 

3 // Wine Tasting Party
Have everyone bring their favorite bottle of wine and do you your own wine tasting party! Have cheeses and different snacks set out for everyone! Make a little score slip for people to rate the wines. 

4 // Chip Dip Party
Ask everyone to make their favorite dip- Set out bowls of different breads, crackers, and chips to pair with. This is a very yummy party. 

5 // Christmas Karaoke Party 
This one was actually Kyle's idea! Have a karaoke party with all Christmas songs- everyone knows the lyrics to these! 

6 // Christmas Pizza Party 
We did this last year & it was so fun. Have everyone shape their pizza dough like Christmas trees, ornaments or snowmen & decorate them with the toppings accordingly. 

7 // Ugly Sweater Party
This one is super popular- I like the idea of making people have DIY ugly sweaters- It's way more fun that way! Allow people to vote for who has the ugliest sweater. 

8 // Gingerbread House Competition 
We also did this last year and loved it. Buy a bunch of the pre-made gingerbread houses & set out all sorts of different frostings and candies- put a time limit on how long everyone has to complete their house. Have everyone cast their votes for the best one at the end! 

9 // Charity Holiday Shopping
Pick a family to sponsor with your friends & spend the day shopping for & wrapping gifts up for the family. This is a great way to give back this season! You could also all grab a tag off one of the gift trees and shop together for those gifts. 

10 //  Holiday Paint & Sip
Grab some canvases & paint on sale at your local craft store & have people bring some wine & brushes! You can have your own DIY paint and sip right at your house! Pick a fun holiday-themed picture to paint such as a Christmas tree.
