2 Ways to Wear Oversized Sweaters

You guys...this oversized turtleneck sweater from Garnet Hill is my new favorite. I've literally worn it four times over the past two weeks and I may or may not be wearing it again today. Whether you pick it up in black or gray like us or in the one of the other four colors it's available in you won't regret it! A great oversized sweater is a must once the weather gets colder, because you can dress it up with a fun party skirt or skinny jeans and heels, or you can totally throw it on with leggings, boots and a cozy scarf and be super comfy be look put together.

These distressed jeans (also seen here) and suede booties have also been on heavy rotation lately. I just picked up these booties a few weekends ago after searching forever for a new pair of brown suede ones after ruining my old pair and they are so comfortable despite the heel!

Make sure to head over to TF Diaries to see more of Megan's oversized sweater look. I'm loving how she paired hers with an equally oversized scarf!

It is the season of giving and I wanted to quickly let everyone know about Garnet Hill's "Merry Mittens Project!" From November 3-December 24, I encourage you to snap a pick of yourself showing off your mittens and upload it to Instagram with #StJudeMerryMittens. Each post will trigger a $10 donation from Garnet Hill to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, as well as will promp an increase in the live "Mitten Meter" located here! Can't wait to see everyone's photos!

Gifts for Everyone on Your Holiday Shopping List

Can you even believe that Christmas is just over two weeks away! I feel like I was just taking down my Halloween decorations, how is it already December? I've been pretty good about Holiday shopping this year, but somehow I always forget to buy a few people gifts!

I actually went to Big Lots the other day to pick up a few new Holiday decorations and some wrapping paper and bows when I saw the amazing gifts they had stocked on their shelves! As soon as I walked into the front doors there were present ideas everywhere and for everyone on your holiday shopping list!

As I was walking through the store I thought it would be a fun idea to put together gifts for three types of people you may have on your shopping list this season! Shopping for friends and family members can be hard, but when you do a little bit of brainstorming and think about what their hobbies are coming up with a gift can be much easier!

Up first, the homebody...the person on your Christmas shopping list that loves to watch movies and read books and who has more pajamas and loungewear than anyone you know! A new cozy faux fur blanket and a mug would be a perfect gift for them because lets be serious you can never have too many blankets or mugs! This blanket was SO incredibly soft I almost kept it for myself!

Next up, the fitness fanatic...the friend that is always at the gym and when they're not you can catch them scouring Pinterest for healthy recipes or buying new Lululemon leggings! Two gifts they would absolutely LOVE are Bluetooth wireless headphones and a steel water bottle! I have this water bottle and I can't even explain how much I love it! My water stays cold for hours (yes, hours), it stays so cold that even the ice I put in doesn't melt.

Last, but certainly not least, the beauty queen...the friend that you go to for makeup tips, who has an arsenal of skincare products and always has perfectly symmetrical winged eyeliner. Big Lots had a TON of beauty gift sets, but these Tuscan Hills lotion sets were my favorite. I love that each set had multiple scents because as a beauty queen myself I like to switch up the scent I'm wearing depending on my mood and the season. And the hand cream set is pretty much the best gift idea ever! If someone got this for me I would be SO happy! I would never had to worry about forgetting lotion again because I would keep one in my purse, one in my desk at work, one in my car...you get the gist!

Transitional Christmas Living Room Decor

Christmas Mantle Decorations | Traditional Modern |Transitional Christmas Living Room Decor | Holiday Decorations

If you asked me a week ago what Transitional Style Decorating was I wouldn't have had a clue, but when I asked my mom to describe the style of her Christmas decorating the first word she used to describe it was "transitional." I, of course, looked it up and after reading the definition she was absolutely right (I don't know why she wouldn't be, she IS the interior decorator after all) her decorating style is transitional! For all of us who don't know what that means here's a crash course: "Transitional style is a marriage of traditional and modern furniture, finishes, materials and fabrics. The result is an elegant, enduring design that is both comfortable and classic."

Last week we talked about Christmas decorating in small spaces and today my mom is taking over to share her story about decorating her small space. She just finished renovating her home so she can enjoy entertaining with out being separated from her guests. They opened up the wall between the kitchen and the living room, added a counter with stools so there is more seating and gained an open plan. But now they have no room for a Christmas tree and she will not have a Christmas without one. Here is how she got creative and scaled down her Christmas decor all while still creating the perfect atmosphere to get you in the Holiday spirit!

Instead of a large Christmas tree she decorated two slim Christmas trees. These smaller scale trees are great when you don't have a lot of space, but still want to be able to decorate a tree in your home. Check out this post for more slim Christmas tree inspiration!

This Christmas decorating style might not be completely traditional, but there are many traditional elements to it like the use of Holiday Nutcrackers! My mom has developed quite the collection and I love how spreading them out along the mantle and in front of the fireplace really ties together the entire scene. You may not be able to nail down your Christmas decorating style, but having a common theme like you see here makes the whole space more cohesive.

If you're looking to turn your living space into a Holiday Wonderland like this it's important to take advantage of all surfaces especially if you're working with a small space. Utilizing your mantle, TV console, floor, and couches are crucial to making your space as "christmasy" as possible. I'm not saying to overcrowd any particular area, but definitely assess your space before you start decorating!

Shop Holiday Pillows here:

If you opted for a smaller scale or slim tree this year that doesn't mean you have to pack away your extra ornaments. Instead of hanging them on a tree place them inside a clear vase and display them as part of your decorations!

Shop Decorative Christmas Ornaments here:

"Stockings were hung by the chimney with care..." and whether or not you have a chimney, festive holiday stockings are a must for any Christmas set up! Switch out your old stockings for something new that tie your decorating theme together. Wool knit stockings in fun patterns like these go with the over transitional aesthetic of this look. Adding natural touches like pine cones, tree trimmings and firewood complete this whole look!

Shop Christmas Stockings here:

I hope these Transitional Christmas Living Room Decorations have inspired you to start decorating your home if you haven't done so yet. You don't need a lot of space to create a beautiful Holiday set-up, and if you pick a theme or decoration style to guide your decorating the whole look will come together even better!

The Best Last Minute Holiday Gifts

Disclaimer: This post was sponsored by Burt's Bees, but all opinions are my own. Thank you for supporting brands that make this blog possible.
Burt's Bees Holiday Gift Sets for Everyone Plaid Tartan Wrapping Paper Christmas Presents

We've all been there...unexpected guests show up at your house during the Holiday season with a gift for you and you have NOTHING to give them in return! I like to have a couple extra bottles of wine on hand for these type of situations, but the problem with that is that it's SO obvious, seeing as wine is the universal "I forgot to get you a gift" gift! This year instead of keeping a couple generic gifts on hand I'm amping up my gifting game by picking up a few Burt's Bees Holiday Gift Sets from Target for those awkward "I didn't realize we were exchanging gifts" situations!

Burt's Bees Holiday Gift Sets for Everyone Plaid Tartan Wrapping Paper Christmas Presents

Burt's Bees Holiday Sets are the perfect solution for gifting during the holiday. No matter who the recipient is, Burt's Bees has something for everyone! Burt's Bees products are such amazing, universally loved items that anyone would love to receive them and a great gift set is way more thoughtful than most other last minute gifts!

Burt's Bees Holiday Gift Sets for Everyone Plaid Tartan Wrapping Paper Christmas Presents

While there are tons of Burt's Bees Holiday Gifts Sets, these three were filled with my favorite products so they were hands down my favorite! My first pick is the Burt's Bee's Honey Pot Gift Set which was filled with Milk & Honey Body Lotion, Honey & Grapeseed Oil Hand cream and Beeswax Lip Balm. In my opinion every gift set should have Burt's Bees Lip Balm because let's be serious, it's the best!! I almost never leave home without one in my bag!

If you have a friend that's really into beauty then I would highly suggest gifting her the Tips and Toes Kit! It's filled with an assortment of Burt's Bees best products for the friend that loves giving themselves at home manicures and pedicures! No matter what condition your hands and feet are in, these products will get them in tip top shape in no time! 

Burt's Bees Holiday Gift Sets for Everyone Plaid Tartan Wrapping Paper Christmas Presents

My last holiday gift set pick was definitely the Best of Burt's Bees set obviously because it's filled with the BEST Burt's Bees products. If you've never tried any of these I highly suggest not only picking up this one as a gift, but also for yourself! I swear the Coconut Foot Creme, Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Cream and Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream are life savers (especially in the winter)! This trio is perfect for any hardworking person in need of a little pampering and I guarantee they will appreciate the thoughtful gift!

Whether your like to keep spare gifts around like I do or are looking for stocking stuffers, small gifts for family and friends or even want to make a big gift basket filled with everyone's favorite natural beauty products, Burt's Bees is the way to go! These three gift sets just happened to be my favorites, but there are TONS more options available at Target (I found all of mine at the Burt's Bees section of the Natural Beauty aisle.) The best part about these gift sets is how perfectly festive the packaging is, so even if you don't have a chance to wrap your gift, you can just pop a bow on the corner like I did. They covered everything and truly are the best last minute gifts!
