Weekly Recap & Updates

Hello everyone! For weeks now I’ve wanted to start a Weekly Recap Blog Post. Basically recapping everything I’ve posted on all of my Social Media outlets and any news going on. I know not everyone follows me everywhere and even if you do {thank you!} there may be a post missed here or there. I’ll try to keep this up as much as possible and I can tweak posting times based on feedback. We’ve had 3 Holiday Parties to attend and now are getting ready to head to Florida soon and spend Christmas with family.

Videos & Blog Posts

I’m going to get started with the beginning of the month and some videos. In case you missed it, I put up a Holiday Party Outfits video. I also have a Blog Post on it HERE.


I combined my November Favorites video with the Top 10 Most Popular Items in to one video. Going forward, I’ll probably start doing the Top 10 as a separate video again so they do not get too long. If you’re not familiar, basically I go through analytics and see the top favorite purchases from viewers for the month. This is based off items I’ve shared on my YouTube Channel or Instagram. I LOVE seeing what you all are loving from what I’ve shared!  And Monthly Favorites is everything Beauty, Fashion and Lifestyle.


I also put up my Holiday Home Decor video sharing how I decorated this year. I also have a Blog Post on that HERE.



I gathered up the best Christmas Plaid Tops and shared on IG and in a Blog Post. I’m a sucker for plaid and often buy at least one new one year year. This year I bought 3.

This Red Jumpsuit was an overwhelming favorite from my Holiday Party Outfits video and when I posted it letting y’all know I did wear it to a party. Thanks for all the sweet compliments! It’s sold out (check for restocks) but I linked some similar options.

I wore this dress and faux fur vest to a get together last weekend as well. I was so comfortable in this outfit and felt festive for the season. I linked several dress options (as mine is sold out) to give a similar look.

I made Hashbrown Casserole for my Husband’s work pitch-in. It’s so easy to make and a crowd favorite. It’s always the first to go and he said it lasted about 10 minutes. So if you’re looking for something to make or bring to a holiday gathering, this is a good one!

I shared that we were having Crockpot Beef Stew one night. This is one of my most popular Pins on Pinterest. I’ve tried a lot of recipes and this is by far our favorite. It’s super easy, too!

My tan sweater and Mom Jeans are on sale 25% off (sales change daily). I’m wearing a small for reference in the sweater. Size down in the jeans due to stretch. I’ve linked some similar leopard flats options.

I love this fuzzy sweater! Keep checking for restocks because sizes are limited in this color. However, it comes in a lot of other colors. I’m wearing a small for reference. I did find a similar one in this color HERE and HERE. I paired it with some faded black denim and red heels for a casual party outfit option.

I wore this outfit to a Christmas Party the other night. There was an ugly sweater contest that I wasn’t going to partake in but that means the dress code is all over the place. The red lace pants were a last minute decision. I actually wore them last year as well (size down). They are SO comfy though it was a no brainer when I put them on. They are already sold out but they bring them back each year. I found a similar pair HERE. Most of y’all know I’m a sucker for a good plaid and I love this new one (runs true to size).

It Snowed!

Yes, you read that right! It snowed here in northern Alabama Tuesday. We get a bit excited down here in the South when it snows even just a little. However, this was more than a dusting. We got about an inch in 30 minutes and a little more later. Of course it was all melted by the next day.



There’s a great deal with Stella & Dot’s sister brand Ever where you get an awesome makeup palette FREE with any $100 purchase plus FREE shipping.
