My Style Monday: Fabletics

It is such a great feeling to get a workout in while wearing a new outfit to the gym. My motivation goes up and so does my confidence. Sometimes just dressing cute for the gym is that last little nudge that I need to get my butt there. That is exactly how I felt in my December picks from Fabletics! These seamless leggings and seamless top have become my fast favorite. I love how they feel on and honestly, how they make me feel as well.

Christmas Cards with Shutterfly

It really is the most wonderful time of the year. Yesterday we got together with family and ate way too much while thinking about all we are grateful for. Today, the shopping frenzy begins! For me, the shopping has already began as I have a large family to shop for and I like to start early. Another thing I like to do early? Get my Christmas card ready so I can send them out the Monday after Thanksgiving! 

Every year I look forward to Christmas cards. Not just making our own, but receiving cards from all my friends and family as well. In my home, we display all of the cards we receive around our mirror in the entryway and I love looking at them everyday. To us, they become part of our holiday decor. This year, unlike years past, I had a extended family photo session. It wasn't a Christmas card photo shoot, but since they are updated photos, we decided to use them. Next year we will be back to taking holiday themed/holiday colors photos for sure!

Black Friday in Downtown Naperville

Last week my friend Jenin of Planning for Paradise and myself took over the Downtown Naperville IG account for the morning. With Black Friday and Small Business Saturday this week, we wanted to pop in several stores to help you find items for all the amazing friends and family on your holiday list. Downtown Naperville has over 100 shops and over 50 restaurants making it the perfect spot for all your holiday needs. Here is a peak at all the great items and sales currently happening in downtown Naperville.

Let's Talk Vitamins

 I get asked a good amount of questions about what vitamins I take each day. After taking a poll in my IG stories and learning this was a topic of interest, I decided it was time to share my routine with you. To be honest, what I take has changed many times over the years. In fact, I did share what vitamins and supplements I was taking at one point on the blog back in 2012, but again it has changed a bit since then. I am not a doctor nor do I claim that I can help you with your health needs. I am simply sharing what works for me.

My Style Monday: Animal Instincts

Good morning friends, happy Monday. I was so excited to share this outfit with you since I had this blouse and cardigan sent to me early last week. For me, this blouse was love at first site. The color is striking and the print is perfection. I had no doubt that this beauty would sell out quickly, but I was still surprised when it sold out in literal hours of launch! You guys, it's so good. Reach out to your local Cabi stylists and hope she has one in her possession's worth a shot!
