Thanksgiving Traditions: The Great Pie Smash // Thanksgiving Casual Chic Look

- Fashion, Featured, Holiday, Lifestyle

Happy Thanksgiving! I love snacks, especially dishes with loads of butter and carbs, so Thanksgiving is my favorite. I gain the "holiday 15" every year with no shame because it's almost winter and I'm getting my winter bod in shape.     But seriously, Thanksgiving is my second favorite holiday (Christmas is first, because duh). Today I'm breaking down how I styled this Thanksgiving casual look and where you can get it, and also talking about some of my favorite Thanksgiving…

Sleigh the Holiday card game // Basic Invite

- Featured, Holiday, Lifestyle

a little note about Holiday cards Christmas cards are one of my favorite holiday traditions. I can remember as a kid helping my mom put together a family newsletter to be sent to family & friends with updates about each one of my siblings and parents' lives. In my pre-facebook childhood, the holidays were a time to reconnect with people you had been out of touch with during the year and share news about what happened in your life since…

Day Trip to Breck I was raised in a small town, but it didn't take long for me to call the city home. One of the things I love most about living in Denver is being able to take a scenic day trip to a nearby mountain town.     This trip to Breck was initially part of a collaboration with Thrillist all about fall day trips to take around Denver, but I grabbed a couple blogger friends and connected with…

An Ode to Inspiration // Inspire to Give Collection

- Fashion, Lifestyle

A little note on Inspiration Inspiration is a funny thing. It often hits us when we least expect it, and when we try to go searching for it we frequently seem to come up dry. Taking some time to reflect on all the people who have inspired us through our lifetime can be a pretty incredible experience. Not only are we reminded of just how many people surrounded us and guided us in all the different choices we've made, we…

Girls Night In // A Rooftop, Wine + Blogger Besties

- Events, Lifestyle

Girls Night In Every once in a while you need a relaxing girls night in with some wine, chocolate-covered strawberries, and some good laughs. My favorite thing about a girl's night in is being able to talk and dive deep with no distractions. Of course, nights out are a blast, but there is just something about a comfy couch and a great view with plenty of wine and snacks that brings you closer. It let's you dig a little deeper…

Came to Vegas to Chill // Minus 5 Ice Bar

- Lifestyle, Travel

  Winter is here. I've never been a huge fan of the cold, but something about a hot summer's day has me doing this thing  I do every year where I start wishing it was cold out so I could bundle up and snuggle by the fire with some hot tea. That winter wish came true when I was invited to Minus 5 Ice Bar in Vegas last week. Well...sans warm fire and hot tea, but plus tequila...so I'd call it…

Time to talk about smiles. Cue all the cheesey smile quotes here about how a smile is the best thing you can wear, they never go out of style, they're the best first impression you can ever leave, etc. But in all honesty, my smile is one of the main things that helps me feel confident and beautiful. As a little bit of an introvert, I find myself hiding behind my smile when meeting new people. I'm also one for…
