{ Cape – Forever21 | Skirt – Zara | Shirt – Target | Shoes – Heavenly Couture | Sunglasses – Coach }

The weather is getting colder and colder by the minute. Some days I question how the Bay Area can drop into the 20?s at night. It has finally reached a point where tights are a daily necessity when bare limbs are exposed and long sleeve shirts are an obvious choice in the morning. Last week I ventured into SF for meetings as well as a few lunch dates. Before the cold weather really hit the Bay Area I was able to wear this festive red and maroon skirt from Zara. I love the versatility of the skirt especially for the holidays. I paired it with a black button up and one of my favorite outer wear garments, my cape from Forever21 which I consider to be a precious gem. Over the weekend I made a drastic change which I can’t wait to share with you later this week!


You know that you are truly relaxing when you haven’t touched a computer in over four days !! This week will hopefully be spent on the couch with my sisters catching up on SVU marathons followed by a little after Christmas shopping and hopefully ice skating and a trip to the snow. Happy Holidays from my family to yours! Tomorrow I will post a tutorial on my favorite beauty tip for this holiday season.

These cookies are to die for, definitely a must try this holiday season. I came across the recipe babysitting one day. The recipe is found on the back of the Nestle butterscotch bag, the combination of oatmeal and butterscotch is genius and always leaves your taste tester coming back for “just one more cookie”!

I am finally home, and it feels so good. I walked in yesterday to a wood burning fire, treats in the oven, Christmas lights, and a fresh smelling Christmas tree. After being picked up from the airport, my boyfriend and I decided to do a little Christmas shopping followed by Happy Hour at PF Changs. The weather has definitely been a reality check (good thing I brought lots of coats), but there was no better way to end the day than watching Christmas with the Kranks by the fire, bundled up with tea and blankets.

According to friends and family, men are always the hardest to shop for, which is why last week I sent out a text to all my guy friends asking them what they are hoping to receive this holiday season or if they had any gift guide suggestions. Unfortunately after receiving either inappropriate ideas (not featured) or way to expensive items, I decided I would come up with a few of my own gifts that I think a typical brother, boyfriend, uncle, cousin, friend, dad or grandpa might enjoy! Hope these are helpful see last years gift guide here.
