White Plum Boutique Giveaway!

Happy Christmas week, my friends!

Mondays are a lot more bearable when it’s a short week ahead, eh?

We had a fun and festive weekend that included Cody’s work Christmas party on Friday evening, and a Christmas celebration with Cody’s side of the family on Saturday. It was such a treat to get dressed up with Cody on Friday evening and enjoy some time together kid free!

Christmas '14

The dress I’m wearing in the above photo is the A Night To Remember Party Dress from White Plum. You may remember me asking you guys for your input on which color I should get a few weeks ago. As you can see, I went with the dark blue, and I absolutely love it. It’s such a fun and festive dress for the holidays!

While we’re on the topic of White Plum, I have another one of my favorite recent favorite pieces to share with you, also from White Plum! I’m constantly finding myself reaching for this Lilith Ruffle Tunic to pair with leggings and boots or flats.

It’s the perfect piece for so many occasions this time of year, and you can make it more casual or dress it up with heels and accessories. The soft cashmere blend is so luxurious and makes it extra comfortable. I also love the ruffle detail to add an extra fun and girly flair to it.

Chocolate Peppermint Cake Balls {Peanut Butter & Co. Giveaway!}

I’m sure you are all familiar with the term “life hacks”.

If not, not to worry, I got ya covered. Here’s the definition thanks to Wikipedia:

A life hack is anything that solves an everyday problem in an inspired, ingenious manner.

I’m teaming up with Peanut Butter & Co. as part of their Yum Squad to come up with a “candy cane hack”. You know, to solve that problem many of us will likely run into this holiday season of having an excess of candy canes.

As you know, you can combine pretty much anything with Peanut Butter & Co. peanut butter and it’s instantly gold. Peanut Butter & Co. peanut butter is my all time FAVORITE! Needless to say, I was all over this little project.
