Hey everyone!  I hope you’re having a great week so far.  I have been relaxing at home for the most part this week due to some strained tendons in my left foot.  It’s been nice relaxing, but I am ready to get back to work and have really missed working out!  Sitting still and being patient…

Happy Friday loves!  Who else is finding it hard to get back in the swing of things after the holidays?  I know I am.  I was so busy with work, parties, gifts, friends, and traveling over the holidays that I almost don’t know what to do with myself now.  Ha!  I must say that I’m enjoying the down time and really using this time to relax and take it easy.  I’m also trying to get back on board…

I am back in town from my trip to Spartanburg, SC (my hometown) and it has felt amazingggg to take some extra days off of work and have a mini staycation!  In the almost 15 years I’ve worked for Nordstrom, I’ve never taken this amount of time off and just stayed at home.  I know that sounds crazy, but I’ve always had people to see and places to go,…

Striped Cropped Sweater & Black Denim

Right when I saw this top, I knew it was a keeper!  We got it in that day, and I had to buy it immediately.  I knew it would be so versatile, and love the way it is pictured online with high waisted olive flare pants.  Just FYI, the denim I have on is more of a mid rise, and not that high.  If you wear high waisted pants, denim, or a skirt, it won’t show your midriff at all.

Happy New Year everybody!  I’m currently in SC visiting my family and friends for the week and freezing my little buns off!  I spent the whole day with my mom, which was such a treat.  I’ll be with her all week, but today was the perfect start to the New Year of hanging out and catching up.  What are some of your goals this year?  I know my number 1 goal is…

Day After Christmas Top Sale Picks!

nordstrom sale half yearly

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas!  My day started out by going out for a run on Bayshore Blvd. with my friend Austin.  We used to run on Bayshore all the time, but haven’t been out there together in a while!  It was a beautiful day out, and we ended up running about 4 miles.  It was so great catching up with him, as we both have been so busy lately and haven’t had much time to hang out.  Our run together was the perfect way to start the day!  For dinner, I went over to my friend Stephanie’s house to visit with her and her family.  Her husband cooked a delish dinner, and it was awesome hanging out with their kids.  They’re both getting so big!  Anyway, it was a nice, relaxing day, and I hope yours was the same!

I’ve rounded up some of my top sale picks for you below.  All you have to do is click on the pic and it will take you directly to the item.  Happy shopping babes! xoxo, Christian
