I’m all about trying new things and eyelash extensions were definitely at the top of my list. I’m sure we’ve all tried the glue-on ones from the drugstore. You know, the ones that never really stick, are too big for your eyes or just look way too fake. Well, I finally got the chance to really just go for it at Deka Lash in Naperville and let me tell you, I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome. The talented and patient Kaily, applied a full set of lashes on me. It’s been about a week, so I feel that I’m well acquainted with them. I’m so glad I got them done when I did, perfect for celebrating New Years with a bang! Here is everything you need to know before you head to the salon and change your look from pretty to va-va-va voom!  What To Expect The vibes at […]

If you’ve never participated in a White Elephant game/gift exchange before, you are missing out! I previously talked about shopping for Ugly Christmas Sweaters and how my best friend has been throwing an Ugly Christmas Sweater party for a decade now. At her party every year we play White Elephant. Now if you’ve never played before, here are the rules. 1. Each player brings one wrapped present. 2. Players draw numbers to determine what order they go in. 3. Players sit in a circle where they can see all of the gifts. 4. The first player selects a gift and opens it. 5. The following players can choose to either pick an unwrapped gift from the pile or steal a previous player’s gift. Anyone who gets their gift stolen can choose a new gift or steal someone else’s gift. 6. After all players have had a turn, the first player gets a […]

I’ve been going to the same Ugly Christmas Sweater Party for almost a decade now! You could say it’s a Christmas Tradition. I’ve worn lots of ugly sweaters in the past 10 years, lucky for you I couldn’t find any photos to share with you. The funny thing is, these days Ugly Christmas sweaters aren’t so “ugly” anymore. Some of them are actually pretty cute! For those needing help finding a funny and inexpensive ugly Christmas sweater, look no further! Or if you just want a good laugh at some of those sweaters, this one’s for you too. {Shop by clicking on the item from the above image or the links below.} // Festive AF // Flying Unicorn // Deer Hoodie // Fa La La Llama // // Sleigh My Name // Dress // Single & Ready To Mingle // // Bye Felicia // Santa Poncho // Filthy Muggle // […]

Can you believe Thanksgiving is only days away? I feel so behind on all things holiday, which is odd because I got the Christmas decorations out this past weekend. We even hung lights outside and lined the walkway up to the front door with giant candy canes. The outdoor decorations already look very inviting. To the outsider, I have it all together and am ready for the holidays. Full disclosure and full transparency, there’s boxes all over the house! Clearly I’m not Instagram ready! I’m starting my Gift Guide series with the cozy cutie in your life! These are all great gifts for your girlfriends, your mom, your sister, your hair stylist or even for yourself! I’ve rounded up my favorite options for that girl in your life who wants to stay in and keep cozy! The purpose of this blog is to help you check everyone off your list, […]

Current mood: Listening to Christmas music 24/7! It’s one week until Christmas, are you ready? Have you finished shopping? Have you even started? I just have a couple presents left to come in the mail and I am done. So I decided to wrap gifts on Sunday after getting hot chocolate at Naperville’s Christkindlemarket. We came home, got in our pajamas, turned Christmas music on and wrapped away. The following is a list of my top 15 favorite Christmas songs. So if you haven’t wrapped your gifts yet, hop in your pj’s, grab some hot chocolate and create a killer playlist to get in the Christmas spirit!
