The Friday Five 12.11.15

Can you believe there are only 2 WEEKS until Christmas!? 14 days!? I’m getting pretty dang excited (like, Buddy the Elf level of excitement) but also also a little nervous about the amount of  wrapping I still have to do. This past week was a great one filled with lots of relaxation and Christmas movie binging. These 5 things are also worth mentioning: The “Molly Room” FINALLY got a fresh coat of paint thanks to Ted and his dad (I owe them big time) I can’t wait to start working on the finer details…

Pink and Grey OOTD

Sometimes you have 10 minutes to get ready (#panicmode) and you don’t want to look like a total bum but you want to feel comfy like a total bum. I found myself in this situation Tuesday and spent 3 of the 10 minutes I had to get ready totally freaking out before I came up with this super easy to throw together outfit.

Mint Green Puffer Vest and Over the Knee Boots

This season I have officially hopped aboard the puffer vest band wagon. In fact, I think I’m driving it.

Oops. (In my defense, they were on MAJOR sale!) I’ve also become part of the over the knee boot club (I showed a…

Holiday DIY: Peppermint Body Scrub

I don’t know about you, but my skin rivals that of an alligator during the winter months. So not cute! In a desperate attempt to help my dry skin situation, I turn to lots of exfoliators and various moisturizing products. Recently, my mom, a super-crafty-do-it-yourself kind of person which I love about her, suggested we try a recipe she found for a peppermint body scrub. I was all for it! Let me tell you, the results were awesome and the recipe to make the scrub is about as easy as it gets! No seriously…

The Friday Five 12.4.15

Holy December, Batman! This year is flying by and I’m trying to constantly remind myself of the wise words of Ferris Bueller: “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t slow down and look around, you might miss it.” He was pretty smart for a kid who hardly went to class! I had a stretch of days off of work where I of course had grand plans to blog and work out and well…it turned into me spending a bunch of time with my family and Ted and doing a bunch of Christmas…
