LOVED & LINKED

it’s been a while since i’ve shared some of my recent favorite buys with all of you, so why not share some now?! i’d love to know if you’ve used any of these or now plan to give them a try!

alright. don’t judge, but your girl is already getting hot flashes and this thing has so come in handy! it’s small enough to keep in my purse and the fact that it’s also a power bank is sooo convenient.

if you like a good thriller book to read, this is it. it’s perfect for a quick read and totally not what you’d expect.

i’m a sucker for a good set of press-on nails and these have been one of my go-tos lately. they’re classy, yet durable, and not over the top.

and lastly, who doesn’t love a good body product and one that boosts energy at that?! i stumbled across this line a few months ago and now have them scattered around home and even work. it smells so good and leaves you feeling energized!

Shop Spotlight: Abigail’s Boutique

happy friday, beauties! it’s been a VERY long time since i’ve done a shop spotlight but i couldn’t resist sharing my love for a new boutique i stumbled upon…abigail’s boutique!

lacey owns the cutest online boutique located in fort worth, texas. her boutique offers trendy, affordable style that gets delivered directly to your doorstep. her shop is always offering new items and i can’t get enough of the variety…from jewelry to fashionable workout gear, there is always something i’m adding to my cart!

i wanted to share a few of my recent favorites with you in hopes that you check out her boutique.

cute workout attire makes working out a whole lot better; am i right? and this set is my new favorite!

this wristlet has been my go-to lately, especially while running quick errands to the store. it’s so much more convenient that my big ‘ole bag and i love the fun tassel. unfortunately, i don’t believe it is still available in her shop anymore but you can find other cute matching checkered accessories including this cute wallet and matching backpack!

want to talk about cozy tops? i’m loving this buffalo plaid top for everyday wear, especially paired with some black leggings. you can find similar ones like this one that used to be in her shop here.

i saw this bright pink dress matched with the leopard belt and immediately thought valentine’s day outfit! the bright color matched with the fun print of the belt is so fun together!

this was my very first item from lacey’s shop and is immediately what got me hooked! the julie leopard sweater coat is long and so cozy! i like to pair it with a pair of boots and it keeps me warm all day. it’s on sale right now so run before they’re completely gone!

a few more of my favorite pieces include the sweater weather pullover and black turtleneck top!

i love supporting small businesses and this one is so worth supporting. go give lacey a follow too over on her instagram as she’s always sharing outfit inspiration.

Amazon Favorites

if you’ve been around for a bit, you’re no stranger to the fact that i live for amazon prime. i mean, it’s my holy grail for basically everything and such a lifesaver. we even buy a lot of our household items through amazon – no joke, we just got an order of dog food in – and it’s been our lifeline during this crazy pandemic.

my in-store shopping has decreased a lot during quarantine, obviously, but there’s no denying that money still flies out of my wallet just as my fast towards my amazon cart. i realize that it’s been a while since i’ve shared some of our favorite purchases from amazon, so i thought i’d share away.

dog owners who have those pesky dogs that always bark? you NEED this!

not joking. my only regret is not buying this sooner. we have lots of windows in our house and the dogs take full advantage of that and bark at everything. its annoying and i think they like to challenge each other on who can bark the loudest. squirrels, mail men, their own shadow? you name it…they bark.

this bark collar has changed that completely. my favorite part about it is that it has three training modes – beep, vibration, etc. – and we’ve only had to use the beep option. they know immediately once they hear that beep what it means and to stop. it’s even waterproof!

this air mattress -yes adulting at its finest. an air mattress.

this has been one of our most used purchases lately. we have people over quite often and can always use the extra sleeping space. this has come in handy so much! the quality is great and we love that it has a built-in air compressor that works so fast.

it was inevitable…we’re mid-westerners. we gave in and bought our own custom corn hole set. it’s exactly what we had in mind and the guy who built them for us did such a great job.

but we needed the actual bags for it. john found these on amazon and they are great!

we got a board set with one side that has the minnesota vikings logo and the other the chicago bears. we decided to purchase bags sets in both purple and bright orange to match them and are super happy with the quality. we’re looking forward to many, many summers using them.

let me know if you order something on my amazon favorites list…i’d love to know what you think. happy shopping!

#famjams: matching holiday pajamas for the family.

i’m all about making this christmas the best one thus far for our family; starting new traditions and keeping up with the old.

i’ve always pictured waking up christmas morning and having the entire family in matching holiday pajamas. i’m a sucker for those festive, picturesque holiday photos all nestled under the tree opening christmas presents.

this year, i wanted to find matching ones for all six of us, as challenging as it would be to find some in all of our sizes.

shopping during black friday this year, i had “matching pajamas’ near the top of my shopping list. unfortunately, finding six pairs that were all the same was a lot more difficult than i had anticipated and had no luck.

later that day, just when i had given up looking in store and decided to just find some online during cyber monday, the girls and i were walking through meijer grabbing some grocery items and we stumbled upon the motherload.

piles upon piles of matching holiday pajamas, but as soon as i saw the sets with buffalo plaid, i was sold. the girls and i rustled through the pile and found some in each of our sizes and threw them in the cart. the best part is that they were all 50% off!

i’d be happy to share a link of the sets that we got with all of you, but unfortunately, i don’t believe they are sold online. but feel free to check out meijer’s holiday items here.

will you and your family be wearing matching holiday pajamas this year?
