Festive & Fun Target Finds to "Add to Cart"


Can we all agree that one of the best hobbies is to aimlessly stroll down the aisles of Target and mindlessly add things to your cart that you "need"? I mean it's natural, right?! ;) Target is always fun to shop at because they have such a variety of different, adorable and affordable things - but it's a whole different story when it comes to Target during the holiday season. I'm like a little kid in a candy store seeing all of the holiday home decor! There's so many amazing finds right now so I rounded up the best things you need to add to your cart today!

Let the holiday gift giving begin! I'm kicking this years Holiday Gift Guides off with a popular one - Gifts for the Hostess. I figured it was a perfect time to share this since we're still a few days before Thanksgiving, and if my 10+ ideas of what to bring to Thanksgiving weren't unique enough - then try one of these gifts! For all of the holiday parties, events and get-togethers we have this season with friends and family, don't go empty handed and don't bring something typical either. These gift options are different, colorful, chic and most importantly ones that they'll love! Also ones that you'll be tempted to by two of and keep one for yourself. ;) Get shopping and happy gift giving!

What to Bring to Thanksgiving that Doesn't Involve Cooking


Happy Thanksgiving Week! I can't believe it's already here but also am so excited for it all! This is the beginning of the most magical time of every year for so many reasons - but anyway! Let's talk Thanksgiving and entertaining. If you aren't hosting, you're probably trying to figure out what you can bring on Thursday. We can't all be the best chefs in the world, so if you aren't looking to cook, or you like to but don't want to/have the time to cook or bake something elaborate to bring, there's a ton of options to choose from! Here's a complete guide of what to bring to the Thanksgiving host's house this holiday!

10 Healthy & Delicious Late Night Snack Ideas


The struggle is SO REAL when you're cozy on the couch, relaxing and watching TV and you're hungry. At 10 pm. Already had dinner and can't believe that you're actually hungry... That's me a LOT of the time and I know I'm not alone! Eating at night isn't necessarily as bad as you may think - or it doesn't have to be anyway. I know all too well that to eat healthily, you have to find something you REALLY enjoy that'll keep you from going to all of those heavy, carb-filled leftovers you have in your fridge, or that big bowl of ice cream that is calling your name. These are the best late night snack ideas I've tried and have regularly, but also ones you can go to during the day to stay healthier too! For me, the key is eating in moderation and not totally depriving yourself, but when you do indulge, find ways to make it not so bad. Here's my top 10 go-to snacks for when I'm craving something delicious late at night!
