sequin-holiday-sweater-mamanista-fridays

Hey guys! How’s the holiday partying going? My company had ours last night and I’m still recovering. Not so much from drinking, but a complete sugar high. I just over-indulged–but it was soooooo worth it…lol. Anyway, for this week’s Mamanista Fridays hosted by the Baby Shopaholic and Mama Fashion Files we’re styling holiday sweaters. Actually, the real theme is supposed to be “ugly holiday sweaters” but I didn’t have one in my closet. So I opted for the next best thing. This cute sequin sweater from H&M online.

Holiday Stocking Stuffers for Her

Holiday Stocking Stuffers-fab-finds-for-her
Christmas is 8 DAYS AWAY! If you’re making a list for the perfect holiday stocking stuffers I’ve selected a few of my favorite brands including some smaller owned businesses like Tees in the Trap and Mae B Paper Boutique and Pardon My Fro I’m still holding out for last minute sales, but I’m finding TONS of deals online like free shipping, extra discounts and so much more. It’s definitely the  most wonderful time of the year! I found out about some of these fab businesses from other bloggers and they look AMAZING! These particular selections are for that beauty/style obsessed friend or loved one. I’m still drooling over that statement necklace from Bauble Bar (hint hint) which is on sale right now.
Happy Shopping!

Happy Thanksgiving! If you’re a foodie like myself, Thanksgiving might be one of your favorite holidays. I love being around family and friends, but having AMAZING food makes the day THAT much better. I have Southern roots, so I tend to look forward to  buttery cornbread, biscuits, sweet potato pie, and so much more! Yum! Well a few weeks ago, the Verizon team invited me and a few other bloggers to #HudsonHolidays in Hoboken, NJ. It was a Thanksgiving like event hosted by Kings Food Markets . Of course holiday food means taking tons of pictures. If you’re looking to really make a statement like a Foodie Pro,  look no further than the  Verizon Droid Turbo.

Well holiday season is right around the corner. I can’t believe Christmas is almost here and that we’re about a month away from the new year!

Verizon Halloween Safety Tips & LG G3 Review

Me and Kaden at The Long Beach, NY Fall Festival

Happy Halloween! Okay, I may be a bit premature in saying that, but don’t you just love this season of pumpkin picking, Halloween crafts and family fun? That’s why I was so excited when I found out that my hometown of Long Beach, NY was having a Fall Festival! The festival included  spooky arts n crafts, a carousel, petting zoo, pumpkin picking and other activities. I was definitely more excited than my son about picking up a great pumpkin that we could decorate. He was actually scared of the pumpkins, especially the larger sized ones. He also disliked stepping through the straw. It was an interesting day to say the least. Ha!

If you’re like me and plan on doing a few small activities this Halloween, it’s definitely important to keep in mind some precautions, especially with your little ones. I have some great tips from Verizon Wireless that will keep your family happy and safe.

Mad For Plaid–The Redo

Hey guys! Okay, so you might have seen the “plaid” theme in last week’s Mamanista Fridays, but honestly I wasn’t too happy about how I styled it. Thank god I’m not a celebrity because that was not the best look#outfitfail lol. Initially I mentioned that I wasn’t the biggest fan of plaid. But you know what? It really is everywhere and can be worn in a variety of ways. So I bit the bullet and purchased this red and blue plaid top from Target for $15! Check out my redo:
