The holidays may look a little different this year but that doesn't mean we can't still give to those we love - or get ourselves a few frivolous things. I won't judge (I do it too!) Even if it's a drop-off on their porch or shipping directly to them, you can show your loved ones you're thinking about them!


For the Home

If you're looking for women-owned businesses to support, rockflowerpaper is a great option to check out! I'm very into gifting household items this year instead of clothes and, luckily for me, they have a great selection of both home goods and clothes/accessories!


rockflowerpaper has quite a few Winter-themed serving trays that I'm considering as gifts (and for myself, obviously!) How adorable is this Winter Stags tray I bought with a gift card!? Might have to buy a plate hanger to showcase it on the wall instead of covering it with treats. Or I'll just leave it like this on our dining room table (without the succulents.) That's also what makes trays great gifts, so many ways to use them.


They also have a collection of ceramic pots with succulents! I have a thing for cute little succulents so you better believe I added some to my cart for the living room (and one for my Grandma too!)


Earlier this week rockflowerpaper started their Black Friday sale! You can get 20% off of $50, 30% off of $100 and 40% off of $150 orders. (not including succulents)


Handmade Gifts


Since I'm doing most of my holiday gift shopping online I'm trying to avoid the "major" stores and shopping small. I do a Secret Santa every year with my siblings/their partners and browsed etsy last month for my gift and found lots of fun options. I can't tell you what I got since it would give away the secret, but I used a few different sellers to make the perfect gift! Jewelry from etsy is also a popular choice and I've gifted many etsy-ordered necklaces in my day!


The Gift of Food


Another fun option for gifting this year is a week of meal delivery services! That way your loved one can have a fun meal without leaving the house! My brother bought my Mom a week of Blue Apron years ago and it was such a great gift. There are a ton different options too. I have personally used Blue Apron, HelloFresh and EveryPlate and enjoyed them all! You get the most bang for your buck at EveryPlate ($59 for 5 meals) but I find Blue Apron's meals ($59 for 3 meals) more adventurous.


To make it even more fun you can coordinate a week to get the same meals and make them together over FaceTime/Zoom/whatever video service you prefer. It's like date night for a family member or friend!


Who doesn't love a gift made especially for them? Stealing another idea from family - my Mom made a photo calendar for my Grandma one year that had all our important family dates in it - birthdays, anniversaries and even puppy birthdays. She has twelve grandchildren so Mom made each month a photo collage of a different grandchild. 


You could also go another route and make a recipe or photo book, both of which I have received as gifts and loved! Knowing someone took the time to create something just for you makes it all the more special. You can use sites such as Snapfish and Shutterfly for these! (I always check who has a better coupon at the moment.)

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American followers! I hope you all have a wonderful day with family and friends! Don't go into to big of a turkey coma! I'll be in a sugar one, myself. I leave room for ALLLLL the desserts!

Happy Halloween from Willy Wonka and myself! (still reusing the same photos from this post because I never go anywhere, haha. One day I'll actually wear this to a party.)

Here's what I wore for our Christmas Day celebrations! We headed to my Grandmothers as we do most Sundays but this one was more exciting because it was Christmas! Duhhh! My cousins from Ohio came in and it was my cousin's baby's first Christmas! Babies always add more excitement to holidays, don't they?

I'm headed off to London tonight so I'll say Happy New Year now! I won't be posting, except for my December wardrobe update, so I'll see you when I get back! Be sure to keep up with my travels on Instagram!

Fur Vest: Romeo & Juliet Couture (from Lydia), Cashmere Sweater: Vince (Marshalls), Pants: Blank (South Moon Under), Boots: Chloe (Roundabout Resale)

I hope everyone had a great Christmas weekend spent with family! (Or a regular weekend for those who don't celebrate)  Only two outfit posts left for 2016, guys! Both are my Christmas outfits and then I'll be leaving you until 2017. I'm headed to London tomorrow night to spend New Years with the Brits.

No post today! Just wishing everyone in the States a Happy Thanksgiving! Let us all be thankful for what we have and the future we can build. Since it's Throwback Thursday, here are some past Thanksgiving looks! As you can see, my Madewell leather pants have become my official Thanksgiving piece.

Happy Halloween everyone!!!! I hope you all have more exciting plans than me. I'll just be having a Halloween movie marathon by myself. Casper, Hocus Pocus, Halloweentown, Teen Witch and more! Even though I'm not going out I put together a super quick pumpkin costume instead of sharing my Willy Wonka for the 3rd year, haha.

Tee: Everlane, Dress: Miss Selfridge (Lord & Taylor), Over-the-Knee Boots: Audrey Brooke 'Mirie' (DSW)

Florals for Easter, groud-breaking.  This dress has been worn for a bunch Easter celebrations in the last few years. It's perfect for the occasion with it's tiny flowers and nice, breezy, fabric! It was still too chilly to go tightless so my legs look a little tanner than the rest of my body in these photos (although in real life they weren't orange, I look like an Oompa Loompa! Ha ha)

Dress: Jason Wu x Target, Jacket: Jones New York, Sandals: Cole Haan (Amazon), Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs 'Henry Dinky' (Gilt), Sunglasses: Ray-Ban 'Erika' (Ditto), Rings: old, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Lumo 'Violet, Lumo 'Rope'

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I had cousins visiting from Ohio so I spent most of Easter weekend with them. Except for Saturday night when we had Easter with my Dad's side of the family. We actually had fairly nice weather, which was good! I did still have to wear tights though, partly because my legs are super un-tanned and partly because it was chilly in the house. I actually rolled this dress up a little bit since it hits me just below the knee, which is not so good for my short stature, ha ha.

Dress: Burberry (Roundabout Resale), Jacket: Jones New York, Sandals: Cole Haan (Amazon), Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs 'Henry Dinky' (Gilt), Rings: old, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Lumo 'Violet, Lumo 'Rope'

Happy New Year!!! I hope everyone had an amazing 2014! I know I really enjoyed mine so I thought I would share a few of my favorite outfits and memories from 2014. I wanted to post a lot more, but decided to save you from a photo/link overload. Links to the posts are the image captions, some have multiple posts.
