Hi friend! It’s one of my favorite days of the year! My mom and I are going to the Nutcracker Market! I’ve been looking forward to this for weeks and it’s finally here!  I’ll be sharing on Stories if you want to tag along!

Cozy Jacket

Always Pan

There’s a reason this pan has a cult following and often, a wait list!  It’s 8 pieces of cookware in one – a skillet, non-stick pan, saucepan, fry pan, spatula rest, colander and steamer.  You can braise, sear, steam, strain, saute, fry, boil, serve, and store with just the Always Pan.  One of the best qualities is that it’s truly nonstick and wipes clean super easily.

The Always Pan has quickly gathered a cult following, being used by everyone from the New York Times to Food & Wine to Ms. Oprah herself!

It’s made of superior non-toxic nonstick ceramic coating, without teflon, toxic metals, or potentially harmful materials, so you can feel good about cooking for your family in it. And guess what? It’s on sale! 

This awesome pan rarely goes on sale, so if you’ve been wanting one for yourself or want to gift one for the holidays, now is the time!  I gave Brian the blue one for his birthday, but how fun is the red?!

Several of you have been asking about the gorgeous necklace I’ve been wearing lately and it’s from my friend Eric’s custom jewelry line, Hespera Designs.

You might have seen him on my Stories at Ali-Shaun’s house when he’s been there for a trunk show a few times.  His designs are so unique and gorgeous and I love that you don’t see them on everyone!  I also appreciate supporting small business owners like Eric, who put so much time, effort and thought into their craft.

This particular necklace is called the Damascus Starlight ID necklace and features white topaz on a beautiful gold or rose gold chain (adjustable) necklace.

Bonus: shipping is FREE on every order, both domestic and international!



You wouldn’t believe it, but these expensive looking sunglasses are actually from Amazon and under $20!  They’re really lightweight and fit comfortably on your face without pinching your nose.  This is the pair I keep in my car and wear most often while I’m driving.  They are chic and oversized, but not too aggressive!

Paravel Tote Bag

Merry Christmas to me!  Yes, I did gift myself a little something early this year!  I was influenced by an ad on Facebook and saw this canvas tote bag pop up.  It arrived last week and I’m smitten!  I got the small cabana tote in “shandy” a peppy yellow and green colorway.

I’m currently carrying it as my everyday bag and it fits a ton!  There’s a convenient front pocket for easy access to your keys and wallet and the inside is so roomy and it zips closed for privacy and protection.  There’s also two inner slip pockets and a zip pocket.

You can carry it by the handles or with the adjustable crossbody/shoulder strap.

Due to the addition of the monogram, it took a few weeks to arrive, so plan to order quickly if you want it in time for Christmas!
