Foolproof Two Ingredient Peppermint Fudge


I absolutely LOVE baking during the holidays - what I don't love is a lot of prep time, a lot of directions or a lot of steps. I also prefer no-bake but I'll take what I can get, lol! I'm always looking for the best recipes I can make to impress guests when I have friends and family over, and recipes to take to parties and get-togethers over the holidays that won't take a day plus a huge mess in my kitchen to make. Let's face it - none of us have too much spare time every day, this time of year especially, and when there's an amazing holiday dessert recipe like this two ingredient fudge, it needs to be shared!

Traditional Glam Christmas Tablescape


The very best part of the holiday season is time with family, celebrating and of course all of the lights and decor! I've been working on my dining room table setup for a few weeks now and I'm SO happy with how it turned out! I'm the kind of person who likes a bunch of elements from different styles and I also like to change it up every year - probably makes sense as to why I'm always changing my furniture and decor throughout the year too, hah! For this year's Christmas tablescape I decided on a mix between traditional - your typical reds, greens and garland - with some glam mixed in. I'm a sucker for anything gold, delicate, sparkly and whatever screams luxury/glam. I had a ton of ideas and knew what I wanted it to look like and I'm so happy that it turned out even better!

Secret Santa Gift Ideas Under $20


Secret Santa Gift Exchanges with your group of friends are the funnest but can also be really hard to shop for! Even though you probably know what everyone in your group likes and most likely all have similar interests, price limits that you put on your gift exchange really can make it hard to find your idea of the perfect gift. It can be tricky too since it has to be something that anyone in the group will like! Luckily for you, I rounded up my favorite gifts to give under $20 that are great for all of your girlfriends and make the most perfect Secret Santa gifts!

Neutral Christmas Decor Favorites with Pops of Color


For this month's Currently Craving I thought it'd be fun to share my current favorite Christmas and holiday decor finds! With all of the gift guides happening around here and sales being shared across Facebook and Instagram, getting in a daily dose of *actual* Christmas was overdue. ;) When it comes to decorating and styling, we all have our own specific styles but you really can never go wrong with neutral decor - and pops of color of course! I like to switch back and forth between traditional Christmas decor and more modern-traditional, if that's even a thing! I'll stop rambling and get to the goods - these decor finds are affordable and will mix with any style!
