I have partnered with Academy Sports + Outdoors to create this gift guide but all content and opinions expressed here are my own.

It’s already December, and I can hardly believe it! I just know this month will fly by, so I have been trying to finalize my holiday shopping. I started by buying gifts at Academy Sports + Outdoors for my family. I got them a few items from the holiday guide that I shared a few weeks back. If you missed it, no worries! You can check it out here. I love shopping at Academy because of their everyday low prices, and I always find something for everyone, from shoes to apparel.

Because I was able to get my shopping done early, I thought I’d browse for a few extra items – for myself. My picks are perfect gift ideas for the active mom, so take a look and take some notes. Whether she’s a wine lover or yoga fanatic, you will find something to surprise. Read More

Holiday Styles that Little Girls Can Wear Through Winter

Holiday Styles that Little Girls Can Wear Through Winter

Dressing the family for the holidays can be a challenge. But don’t panic, today my little one is taking over the blog to share styles that little girls can wear through winter! They are holiday styles from two of her favorite stores; Crazy 8 and Gymboree! She loves keeping it casual but will occasionally dresses up. These versatile styles can be worn over and over again!

So we love shopping at these stores, because their versatile styles allow her to show her personality through what she wears. The first look she put together without much effort; a jumpsuit which is on trend and slides which are her go to because she can quickly slide them on and go. She’s not big on accessories but she picked this necklace and has been wearing it quite a bit.

The second look is more casual, she loves her jeans! And I did help her a bit on this one. While she picked the crop sweater and jeans, I suggested she’s add some sparkle with the bronze booties. She accessorized this look with a festive bow. If you have little ones, you should check out both stores, they often have sales that make it easy to get their fun styles at a discount. 😉

Friday Favorites: Fall/Winter Beauty Products I’m Loving

Friday Favorites: Fall/Winter Beauty Products I’m Loving

As the season finally changes in Houston, I try to also make changes in my beauty routine. This fall I have been trying a few new products that I plan to use through winter. Because I know that many of you also tweak your beauty routines and are on the search for good skin products to try, I wanted to share a few of my favorites today.

One of the products that I now swear by for eye-care care is the T2 OXYGEN EYE CREAM O3.0 which helps in the healing and regeneration of damaged skin cells. With ingredients like elderberries (an anti-oxidant), jojoba oil (which firms and hydrates skin), evening primrose ( that boosts blood circulation) this cream makes the aye area feel youthful.

I have been using it for over four weeks and felt more confident with every use because I knew that it was made to protect the eye area. My eyes are an area of focus for me because I suffer from dark circles – I think they’re partially hereditary but I’m proactive in helping minimize them however possible. I am working to implement other habits that help minimize dark circles, like sleeping and hydrating more too.

Trendy Thursday LinkUp + Holiday Outfit Idea: Velvet and Leather look

SHOP VELVET TEE

This week we will continue with holiday outfit. In fact, it’s been all about the holidays the last few weeks, if you’ve noticed the trend. I have shared some holiday gift ideas and holiday looks. You can check them out under the holiday shop menu at the top of the page. 😉

Today’s look has all my favorites, velvet, leather and leopard. This velvet tee is so fun to style! Plus, it comes in five colors and is under $27. I love how its beautiful velvet finish can instantly elevate a look, making it a perfect option for a holiday outfit for any party… While it can easily be worn to create a more casual look. I paired it with these leather leggings because I have been obsessed and they seemed to go well together. The final piece in this look were my leopard block heel sandals.

I am linking all the items below for you to shop. I hope that between today’s look and last week’s you have some options to inspire that perfect look for your upcoming holiday festivities.

Holiday Gift Guide: What to Buy for Your Family at Academy

I have partnered with Academy Sports + Outdoors to create this gift guide but all content and opinions expressed here are my own.

The holidays are fast approaching and I have already started making a list of options for my loved ones. I know that finding the perfect gift can be a daunting task, so I’m sharing a few of my favorites with you below. This year I’m tackling my list by shopping at Academy Sports + Outdoors. I have been shopping here for over eight years now and I love their everyday low prices. Plus, their large selection of items. I found everything from athletic shoes to hoodies and wine tumblers.

If you haven’t shopped at Academy before, let me tell you that you will love it. Let’s face it, shopping for a family of four is not cheap, but they make it easier for everyone to get great prices! Having little ones means spending lots of time outdoors and Academy will make it easier for everyone to enjoy more sports and outdoors with my picks below.

Gift Ideas for Girls

  1. Adidas Kids’ cloudfoam Racer TR Running Shoes – the integrated cloudfoam in these shoes delivers plenty of cushioning for little ones. Because my kids are so active, I think these are a great pick.
  2. Nike Girls’ Sportswear Full-Zip Hoodie – this hoodie is perfect for cooler temperatures because it provides warmth through its brushed-back fleece. This is a great piece for layering and keeping little ones warm and cozy.
  3. iWorld Rave Bluetooth Wireless Speaker – uses Bluetooth® technology to wirelessly connect to electronic devices. It also lights up and has a color-changing design, so it will literally bring the party to life.
  4. Heritage Kids’ Cuddly Sleeping Bag – this cuddly companion is great for sleepovers and indoor camping and its roll-up design makes it easy to store. This is the gift those unicorn lovers on your list will love.
  5. Ozone 500 Girls’ 20 in. Majestic Bicycle – This bike is a winner – style and safety come together. It is cute, includes a storage bag, has an adjustable seat and also comes with comfortable grips and reflectors. This will be both your and their favorite gift.
  6. Disney Girls’ Peeking Minnie T-shirt – isn’t she everyone’s favorite cartoon character? I don’t think any girl can say no to Minnie, so this gift option is a no-brainer.
