  • This is 29 🎉
One year away from 30, and I’m fully embracing it. I’m kind of a hot mess, kind of put together, and always looking to be better, inside and out. I’m thankful for another year and looking forward to what the last year of my twenties is going to hold 🎂
Also, if you need me today, I’ll be with my sister (my birthday twin) drinking all of the champs! 🥂

  • (Ad) Giving is one of my favorite parts of the holidays season. I was challenged to pick out and gift some fabulous shoes from @famousfootwear to a fellow mama in my life. 
I chose my beautiful sister-in-law, who is one of the kindest and most deserving people I know. 
You can make gifting easy this year too with @famousfootwear. They have something for everyone on your list!

  • (Ad) We had a random snow storm here in Richmond, and my Arizona babies weren’t ready (or I wasn’t at least). Thankfully, @zappos came through with early gifts of snow boots for the whole family, and super-fast and free shipping!
Check them out for your last minute holiday shopping needs... because Christmas is literally in a matter of days! #happyzappygiftguide
  • #alternahaircaregiftedme this hair system, and I am in love! I am always on the hunt for good hair products that give me volume, but don’t dry out my fine hair.
These products do just that, and they smell amazing! I use them with their bond repair products, and it’s a match made in heaven. •

  • If you haven’t gone to check out @kingsdominionva Winterfest, you need to!
My girl was smitten with all of the characters, and they have so many great activities for people of all ages (like a huge ice rink, and spiked egg nog for the adults 😁). Lots of family-friendly holiday fun! •

  • (Ad) I love gifting personalized things during the holidays. There are just those certain people in your life who you know love gifts with photos and memories.
@google photo books are the perfect gift! They are so fast and easy to make with the app, and you can personalize then however you want to. Plus, they are having free priority shipping until 12/16!
I love to create books each year full of our memories. So fun to look back on! •

  • (Ad) This pretty lady is someone I hold super close to my heart, and she is making a guest appearance on my blog and Instagram this week for a special reason. ❤️
I partnered up with @famousfootwear to gift one very deserving mama some gorgeous shoes this holiday season!

  • (Ad) In my family, my mom is the head chef! I wish I had half of her skills in the kitchen. Thankfully, I still get delicious holiday recipes like this one passed down to me.
We use @justBAREchicken breasts, because they don’t use any antibiotics and I want only the best when cooking for my family.
You can find Just BARE Chicken on @amazonfresh, which makes it super convenient and easy to get high quality, healthy food delivered to your door.
