Delicious Holiday Appetizers + A Few Recent Looks

Hello friends and happy hump day!! 

I am sorry that I have been MIA around here this week.  As I'm sure most of you all know, the holidays are pretty crazy!  Plus, I've been trying to take a step back and focus more on my family, and while the holidays can definitely be overwhelming, there is so much joy and happiness in it as well, especially seeing it through your children's eyes. 

This image popped up on my Facebook and I couldn't believe this was almost six years ago!


And with the holidays also comes all the holiday parties!!  Todd and I have our white elephant supper club party this Friday and I am so excited!  I am planning on making a big salad of some sort along with an appetizer.  And since a lot of you guys probably have parties to attend as well, I thought I would share a few delicious appetizers that would be great for holiday parties.  











And since I've been MIA on here, I also wanted to share a few of my recent outfits since I know shopping my blog is often much easier than Instagram these days! 


Tee runs tts, and for reference, I'm wearing a small.  The skirt also runs tts and I'm wearing that in a small as well. 


Oversized Lightweight Sweater // Gold Hoops (on major sale) //

Leggings and puffer jacket both run tts and I'm wearing a small in both.

Amazon Fashion Hunt Hits And Misses

Good morning friends and happy Thursday!! 

I am coming at ya with a big ol round of Amazon hit and misses this morning!  I didn't realize it had been so long since I shared one of these with you guys.  I've shared some of the stuff on my Instastories, but I wanted to make sure I also shared it here as well so it would all be in one place and hopefully easier for you guys to find it. 

I had lots, and I mean lots of hits this month with only one miss.  Now that I've been ordering fashion from Amazon on the regular, I feel like I know the brands that I really love (like Daily Ritual, Mae, CRZ Yoga, and Core10), I can weed out the ones that aren't that great.  Some of the random brands still have some really cute stuff, it's just somewhat of a crapshoot on whether or not it will look good and how good the quality may be. 

I also found a lot of really great and super affordable dresses this month, and a lot of them would be perfect for upcoming holiday parties you ladies may have, so I figured I would start with those first! 

While this one isn't really super dressy, I think this two piece sweater set could still be worn to a more casual holiday party.  I am thinking ornament exchange, dirty Santa, or a casual drop-in party. 


Edited Hit and Misses 12/12 
Okay y'all this tunic sweater in my book was a miss, it was just too thin and a little too snug in all the wrong areas. But these high-waist stretch leggings are amazing, and a total win!! 



For sizing reference leggings run tts and I am wearing them in a small . 


Sweater runs tts, and for reference, I'm wearing a small. Jeggings also run tts, and I am wearing them in a size small short.

The set runs small so make sure you go up at least one size.  For reference, I'm wearing a medium.
