goodbye 2012, HELLO 2013!

December 31, 2012

it's a bittersweet goodbye to 2012 today. this year was one of the biggest most eventful, romantic, and happy years of my life. from adding a new member to our family (charlie, our pup)... to getting hitched in a beautiful barn to my one-and-only fireman and all the amazing food & things in between! i'm sad to see 2012 go, but am so excited to see what 2013 has in store for us. so i wish you a happy happy new year and all the best in 2013!!!

here are a few photo's from our 2012...

looking forward to what's next to come...
welcome 2013!

merry merry & happy holidays!

i'm sorry for the late post today! i always try and have my posts up for you to read with your morning coffee... but maybe i'm getting you just in time for your afternoon caffeine fix. i hope so! here is a gift guide that i LOVE doing... the MAN GIFT GUIDE! finding the perfect gift for the man in your life can sometimes be a great challenge. i always try and find a few good gifts that cover the man-spectrum. here is my MAN GIFT success recipe... i try to buy the fireman something new for his wardrobe (like a new jacket or a great shirt), a piece of electronics (maybe something from Apple or a cool new gadget), and something i would never be interested in (like real-man-stuff... example: a killer flashlight). when i put all three gifts together the fireman is always surprised & stoked with his new MAN GEAR! 

so here are a few items that could be prefect for that special man in your life.
... or men, i have brothers too!

it's not too late!

big ole beanie via

happy monday peeps. rough weekend, right?? i hope you all found a little bit of holiday cheer in between all the horrible horrible news. my heart goes out to those families who lost their beautiful babies in CT. 
so....... with the refreshing chill in the air comes the option to layer and pull out that holiday head wear! i feel like a good slouchy chrcoal beanie is at the top of my shopping list. i already have the cashmere beanie, pop of color beanie, and the oversized crochet beanie covered. but i think the cool fitted (but) slouchy beanie is where the head trend is! so here is some holiday head-wear inspiration for you. 

stay warm out there!
**ps: remember this hot lipstick trend
(i think a bright lip + a cool beanie could be the perfect holiday combo!)
