So I stuffed my face with cranberry sauce.

Yes, I just can’t help myself.

Does cranberry sauce not go with EVERYTHING THOUGH?

Like cranberry sauce x stuffing…YES?

Cranberry sauce x turkey…YES?

Cranberry sauce x pasta…SO MUCH YES?

Cranberry sauce x sweet potatoes…YES YES YES?

I mean it even goes with corn bread?

We’re getting off track but really it does go with everything.

During this time of year, I just really love my cranberry sauce. I also love my knee-high boots.

Reason being: knee high heel boots are slimming after the major cranberry, cornbread, sweet potato moments.

Much needed !!

In other news: how was your Thanksgiving? Anything fun? We ended up going to my parent’s house AND of course Michael’s parent’s house. We did a lot of mingling, eating, & a little drinking.

SO on that note, I figured I’d show you guys what I wore in the days leading up to Thanksgiving: knee highs.

I know it’s cliché but I’m kind of obsessed.

There are a couple reasons why: 1.) you can roll them DOWN. 2.) they really flatter the leg and 3.) they’re hot AF. Every girl needs a pair. I mean I just really like how they lengthen the leg. Ideal after too much cranberry sauce.

I paired these boots from Nordstrom with Michael’s shirt. Nordstrom has a ton of amazing boots right now— our poor, poor bank accounts. And there’s nothing I love more than experimenting with the guy’s clothes. There’s something very sexy about men’s clothes, right? Lastly I added a severe middle part with super slick, straight hair & I was good to go.

I feel like this is one of those outfits that doesn’t even need makeup. CHIC, SLEEK, TO THE POINT.

Oh, & of course IT’S SHOPPING TIME !!! If you’re looking for some great gifts these are my top 7 picks. I will for SURE being treating myself to number 2 and 4 ( I NEED SMOKING SLIPPERS or I’ll die ):

1.) My actual favorite pair of sneakers

2.) NAVY velvet booties

3.) A lower version of my white pumps

4.) THE BEST pair of black heels

5.) Stan Smith white kicks

6.) Crimson smoking slippers

7.) Hottie silver New Year’s Eve pumps

Alright I’m off to eat leftovers. Very much about a cornbread, turkey, cranberry sauce situation right now. Anyone with me?

Happy weekend, CHEERS GUYS!

Anyone else still hanging over from Thanksgiving?

SO glad I can just chill today & shop online. Hopefully you guys have a chill day ahead too.

Okay so for BLACK FRIDAY shopping I am doing it ALL online. I definitely DO NOT do the whole wait in line, packed mall, people fighting for TV’s thing. It’s just way too intense. Who’s with me?

Below are the items that I am 100% picking up today. They’re just too good.

BTW!! Definitely make sure to check out this post featuring the absolute best online Black Friday deals. You’ll thank me later.

Here’s what I’m picking up today:

Black Friday Clothes I Just Can’t Resist:


Everyone needs a good pair of gloves. These are great because you’ll get major use out of them every Winter. Michael & I are heading to NYC next week so these are IDEAL.


Love a good lacy bralette. Don’t you? These hotties are buy one get one 50% off which is just perfect. The best thing about these lacy bralettes is they are both comfortable and SEXY. You can wear them for a date night out or under a basic tee while running errands. Either way you’re winning.


This sweater is SO cozy. Perfect for Fall & Winter nights. Lately I’ve been into bright colors during the colder seasons. It’s fun to switch it up, don’t you think? The colors are also 100% ON BRAND.


LOVING velvet lately. This velvet blazer is so chic. It’s the perfect piece to complete a business casual, professional look. You could even throw it over a pair of jeans & a tank top. It adds an edgy touch to any outfit.


I live in sneakers. Whether I’m working out, running errands, or grabbing a quick lunch with friends, sneakers are my go-to. It’s SO important to take care of your feet. Wearing shoes with good arch support is good for your posture and reduces stress and tension in your entire body. Plus, they’re super cute. Win, win. Right??


OBSESSING over this skirt. Metallic is IN, so take advantage of it while you can! This skirt is ideal for so many different occasions. You can keep it casual with a vintage tee and sneakers or dress it up with heels & a low cut bodysuit. I’ll probably rock this on New Years Eve if we’re being honest.

If you’re still hunting for the best deals, check out this list of the absolute best online Black Friday deals. These are the sites I’ll be shopping all weekend.

Enjoy your weekend!
