Golden Christmas Themed Foyer

I was feeling super Christmas-y this year, so instead of having one tree I have multiple trees! ;) This golden themed Chrismtas tree is in my foyer, and it's basically my version of a gold dream. The entire room is filled with shimmering lights and gold accents and I love how it turned out!

Holiday Gift Guide: Gifts for the Sister Who Steals Your Things

Raise your hand if you have a sister who steals ALL of your things! *raises hand* We may love to hate when our sisters use our makeup, wear our clothes and go out in our shoes but at the end of the day, there's really nothing better than being able to share with your sisters! My younger sister and I share just about everything and we're super close - she went to college this year, but I still have her asking me to overnight her certain tops/shoes/jewelry of mine for her to borrow! ;) If you have a sister and don't exactly know what to get her, these ideas will help but also remind you of just about everything she takes from your closet when she comes to visit:

My Winter Skin Beauty Secret: PMD Beauty

This post has been sponsored by the PRIMP Network and PMD Beauty. As always, all opinions are my own!

Last month, I talked all about the PMD Beauty Personal Microderm at-home tool, and now that I've been using it for 6+ weeks I'm so excited to share basically how amazing and in LOVE I am with my new, secret beauty weapon! It's worked wonders on my skin and for someone who has fortunately always had pretty clear, smooth skin - this is something I never knew I needed.

Holiday Gift Guide: Personalized + Monogrammed Gifts

I really cannot even believe just how close we are to Christmas! It still feels so far away, I'm finding it hard to grasp that it's December! While you still have tons of time to shop both online and in stores, if you're going to be gifting personalized gifts you want to get those orders in ASAP - a lot of retailers have cut off dates for making personalized gifts and that date range is approaching quickly! I always love a good monogrammed gift and there's something in this category for nearly everyone on your holiday shopping list. Here's the cutest monogrammed/personalized gifts to shop for your friends and family this season:

How to Know You Need a Break from Reality (and what to do about it!)

A couple of months ago, I was totally MIA from just about every form of social media AND the blog. It was stressing me out to be away from it all, but it also was something I needed so desperately. I'm one of those people who never says no; who doesn't like to take breaks and I spread myself way too thin ALL the time! I don't have any explanation for why I am that way, but I'm totally aware of it and I try really hard to make it all work, even when time is SO not on my side.

There's family get-togethers (especially this time of year), work deadlines to meet, relationships to tend to, random life happenings and really just living your life and having things to do. Having so much to do and so little time to get it ALL done causes so much stress, it makes you shut down and causes you to now want to do ANY of it. Now, it almost seems like the constant go-go-go 24/7 mindset is a norm, but girlfriend it just is NOT that easy and only works for a short, short amount of time before you burn yourself the heck out.
