Happy holidays! This post is hodge podge of things, kinda like life right now. If ya caught my Snapchat story yesterday, I mentioned the total burnout feeling that’s been creeping up into my corner lately; SO much is happening. Since so many of you in my fall reader survey said you want to read more personal stuff about me/my life, I figured I’d take a hot sec to share some recent tidbits with y’all while sharing a bunch of winnables and giftables.
J and I are heading to Baltimore this weekend to hang out with one of my best friends + her beau, the following weekend we’ll be in Tennessee because I’m a bridesmaid in Nina’s wedding, the weekend after that is a Christmas show with my parents, and the weekend after that is Christmas Day. I’m sorry, time? Yeah, hi, it’s me, Erica. Can you slow the heck down pleaseandthankyou?!?
In the whirlwind, I just launched a huge course, J got a new job, Bath and Body Works has their biggest candle sale ever today (#BlessUp) and the cats are thriving, alternating between chewing on the Christmas tree and sleeping underneath it, waiting for Santa + Baby Jesus.
So, here are a few spirits to enjoy.
1.) In the shopping spirit…
Time to remind ya of Santa’s Shop! ICYMI, Santa’s Shop is a new option on the grey navigation bar above, featuring multiple gift guides for this Christmas season. It’s the bomb dot com status, if I do say so myself. 😉 I spent hours and hours curating everything for you, so there’s sure to be perfect giftables in there for the folks on yo’ list! There are gifts for her (under $50 AND under $100), gifts for HIM, stocking stuffers, gifts for the cat lady in your life, gifts for the badass bosslady, and my own wishlist is featured, too. I’m pulling some snapshots of each for you below if you’re doing any quick shopping this beautiful Saturday morning…!
For Her, Under $50
For Her, Under $100
For the Cat Lady
For the Badass Bosslady
2.) In the survey (+ meetup?!) spirit…
If you live in the tri-state area, could you click here and click here and answer these two super short Q’s (seriously, will take ya 10 seconds total, if that!)? I *might* be hosting a super fun meetup + more at the KOP mall at the start of 2017, but to know if it’s actually happening or not, I have to know if y’all would come. HA. SO, plz let me know + note which day/time combination works better fo’ yo’ schedule! It would be REALLY cool, + I’d be working with a brand to bring you some amazing things, so it would be well worth your time. 😉
3.) In the style spirit…
I figured I should share the entire shoot of this outfit that you guys loveloveloved on Instagram. Like really…y’all flipped. I love it because it’s SO versatile, works for both fall and winter (with minor alteration needed for snow, obvi), and is flattering for so many figures + closets. Also, for anyone wanting to add “Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM” to their Christmas list, mine is from Keeks (c/0) – they’re a FABULOUS luxury resale shop that sells 100% authentic, basically-never-used-and-in-mint-condition designer bags at a lesser price.
4.) In the giving spirit…
Here are THREE giveaways to float yo’ boat.
