We are going to fast forward slightly to New Year’s for one post because the reality is, New Year’s Eve is just around the corner too! I usually share dressed up New Year’s Eve outfit inspiration each year, but realized that I usually fall into the “at home” category so I thought I would share outfit inspiration for that as well. Let’s be honest, I will be lucky to even make it to the ball drop and will probably set an alarm for 11:55 p.m. like I did last year! Here is this year’s New Year’s Eve Outfit Inspiration: on the town & at home!Read More

Pink Faux Fur Jacket

If you haven’t heard, pink is my favorite color. And although I have always loved pink, I have upped my pink game in the last few weeks. From this ruffle skirt (which is on sale for under $60) in this post to the hot pink sweater with faux fur pockets in last week’s post, my closet seems to be getting more pink by the day. Needless to say when I saw this pink faux fur jacket, I knew it had to be added to my ever growing collection.

Happy Wednesday, friends! Since last year’s 50 gifts under $50 post (you can see that here) was super popular, I couldn’t let the holiday season pass without sharing one for this year. I’ve rounded up the best 50 gifts that are all under that $50 price tag. And of course I stuck with a color theme! From blush pink to magenta and everything in between, these gifts are perfect stocking stuffers or gifts for your sister or friends.

Without further ado, here is this year’s 50 gifts under $50!

Christmas Breakfast Casserole

breakfast casserole recipe

One of the things I look forward to most on Christmas morning are the breakfast casseroles. I know, it probably sounds crazy, but this is one of the few mornings that it seems alright to indulge in the “not so healthy” breakfast foods. My mom usually makes a french toast bake and egg casserole, both of which are fan favorites. I thought I would take my mom’s usual egg casserole recipe and make a few changes, including adding hash browns, for a different spin. The hash browns were the perfect addition! This new Christmas breakfast casserole might just be the new go-to on Christmas morning.
