Countdown to Christmas | Vol. 2

Hello and happy Monday! It's Veteran's Day AND my birthday so a lot to celebrate! First, I want to pay respect to all the past Veterans that have fought for our country and have helped keep freedom alive! Thank you all so much for your service! 

Over the weekend we celebrated Bill and my anniversary, our Nephew's birthday and my birthday! So it was definitely a fun weekend. Yesterday, I spend some time with my mom shopping and ended the night with ice cream with the family, it was just what I wanted for my birthday. Well, that and to put up our Christmas tree! Yes, I know it seems a little early, but for some reason this year I was just itching to put up our new 7' Prince Flocked tree from King of Christmas! I grabbed some cute ornaments and the metal tree collar from Hobby Lobby. The pillow is from Amazon! I may still add a few more details to it, but for now I'm loving the color scheme and the soft glow of the lights at night and in the early morning.

Last week I also worked on a new gift guide all for the hostess! I know Thanksgiving is coming up and you may have some holiday parties you are attending, so I wanted to get this one done asap! All of these ideas are under $50 and most are under $30!

Lastly, I wanted to share these items I tried on at Old Navy yesterday since they are still having their friends & family sale! Card members get 50% off their purchase with code: FAMILY at checkout! They have so many cozy sweaters and cute plaid tops that are perfect for the upcoming holidays!

For reference: I'm 5'2" and am wearing a size 4 in the jeans and smalls in the tops.

Countdown to Christmas | Vol. 1

Happy Monday and Happy November! I can not believe it's time to start thinking about Christmas shopping and decorating all ready! In the past, I have always 'respected the turkey', but for some reason this year I am ITCHING to get our tree up asap! Maybe it's because every year, the holiday season seems to fly by even faster... especially with little ones, I want to savor this magical and special time of year as long as possible! So, I am determined to get our tree up this week! We got rid of our old faux tree because it was shedding so bad, and got a new 7' faux flocked tree (use code: LOVELYLIFESTYLING' to save 10% off your order)! It's a beaut!! I can't wait to share! 

On that note, I decided that every Monday I will be posting a round up of my gift guides (trying to get at least one done per week until Christmas), Christmas decor inspiration, sales or any other holiday related content I want to share. I thought this would make it easy for all of you to shop along with me! You can always reference all of my holiday gift guides on the Holiday Shop tab on the home page of my blog. I also have a page dedicated to Christmas jammies and Christmas decor, so make sure you are checking those pages weekly for updates!

This week I have a gift guide for the cozy girl on your list, a round up of vintage Christmas decor I found on Amazon, some toddler Christmas jammies and a boot sale! Lots of great options to start checking off your shopping and to do list!

Let's start with my first gift guide! These cozy gifts would be perfect for friends, moms, sisters, cousins, MIL, SIL, co-workers, teachers... the list goes on! I would love anything on this list!!

Next up, I put together this round up of toddler Christmas jammies from Target that are all under $20! We don't always wear matching jammies as a family, but you better believe I'm putting my boys in matching jammies as long as I can get away with it! I got the boys this matching set already and I'm sure I will end up getting a few more!

October Amazon Finds

Happy almost Halloween! I can not believe tomorrow is the last day of October!! This year has been flying by! The boys are so excited to dress up as the PJ masks tomorrow night for trick or treat. Their cousin (who is a girl) is joining them to be Owlette to complete the super hero trio! As much as I LOVE the holiday season that is about to start, I also love that my boys get excited about these holidays. Camden especially loves Halloween, so I am going to really try to have fun and make some memories tomorrow. He also had his halloween parade and party in his pre K class tomorrow, so he will definitely get some good use out of his costume! 

Now, on to my Amazon favorites from this month! I decided it's probably easier to just do a monthly round up of all my Amazon favorites so there is one place you can reference to find them! I found a lot of great pieces this month that will be staples in my fall and winter wardrobe! I always find that reading the reviews for quality and sizing is best when ordering from Amazon. It can also be somewhat of a black hole, so I have taken the hours of searching, ordering and trying on out of the equation for you! Saving you time and money!! I will only share items I would wear myself, so you can be rest assured these items are legit!

SO let's get started!

I'm 5'2" and typically wear a small in tops and a 4/6/small in bottoms.

I shared this outfit earlier this week on IG stories. These camo high waisted leggings are SO comfy and soft! They come in a ton of pattern and color options too. Run TTS, I'm in a small. I also love these tunic long sleeve tees for layering with leggings and vests in the fall. They come in a bunch of color options (I have 3!) and run TTS.

When I saw this striped top on my friend Ja'Net from Running on Clean I knew I needed it too! The inside material is so fleecy soft! Like the perfect light weight sweatshirt! These come in other color and stripe options and run TTS (I'm in a small). Great to throw on and go!

How cute is this leopard print beanie?! It is so soft and cozy too! Comes in a few leopard color options and would make a great stocking stuffer! I also had to order another one of these tunic length tanks because they are so perfect with leggings and to layer under jackets for fall.

I loved the short sleeve version of this striped tee so much I had to order the long sleeve version too! Perfect for layering under jackets, vest, blanket scarfs, etc (BTW - the color says navy stripe, but it is definitely black and white)! Like this super cozy sherpa lined reversible vest! Tee runs true to size (I sized up to a medium for a length) and vest is also TTS.

This sherpa pullover is SO soft and cozy!! Would make a great gift for the holidays too! Comes in a ton of color options and runs TTS or size up one for length to wear with leggings (I'm in a small).

Another great layering long sleeve tunic top is this one! Comes in both this grey color or black. I love the side slit detail on these as well. Perfect for leggings and to layer under a vest!

I also ordered this leopard print blouse. It would be perfect for the office, tucked into a high waisted skirt or under a black blazer. Or you could dress it down and wear it out to dinner or drinks! I have it here paired with leggings (it is long enough for me!), tall boots and my faux leather jacket. Blouse runs TTS and also comes in solid color options (I'm in a small).
