I got a request to do another Amazon gift guide as we are closing in on Christmas rather quickly. The free two day shipping makes it so easy to buy last minute gifts.. I am even buying most of my stocking stuffers online this year to avoid crowds! 

I have finally kicked off my holiday baking (and eating) so first up was one of my favorite Christmas time recipes – raspberry Linzer cookies. Linzer cookies always look a little more difficult to make than they actually are. Essentially simple sugar cookies filled with jam, these cookies look festive and taste so good!  Linzer […]

We didn’t go all out decorating this year for Christmas, but I wanted to give you a peek inside our apartment before Christmas is actually here. I like to keep things simple or it can tend to look really cluttered, so I stick to a lot of fresh greenery in wreaths, garland, and of course […]

Amazon is one of my favorite stops for just about everything these days. I have become so reliant on my Amazon Prime account and live for the free two day shipping. I purchase most of my coffee table books and a lot of my candles on Amazon in addition to some of my favorite beauty […]

Framing art can be quite costly, but I have found a few cheaper solutions that still look great! I change up the art in our apartment all the time, so I never want to spend a lot on custom framing. Recently I wanted an oversized mat style frame for above our sofa and I couldn’t […]

Now that December is here I am excited to have small get togethers in our apartment. Although we don’t have a ton of space, our living room is a great spot for gathering around the coffee table. I have always wanted to host a simple gift wrapping party filled with good wine and a delicious […]

Candles are always my weakness, but my love for them grows around the holidays. Not a day goes by where I don’t have a candle lit and winter scents help heighten the holiday feel around our apartment. I get asked a lot about my favorite candles in general so I thought I would share some […]

Saje Wellness has been one of my favorite essential oil brands for a while now. I started using oils to help ease my back pain in addition to headaches and was surprised at the result. I was definitely doubtful oils would have the power to do much, but after consistently applying to various spots at […]

Lets be real, I live in loungewear about 90% of my life. However in the winter months I really like to step up my comfy clothes game. I am to the point where I look forward to coming home just to get into a relaxing outfit that makes me more excited to sit on the […]
