Causing a stir I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving! Are you heading out for any of the Black Friday specials on biggest shopping day of the year? Make sure you have your lists ready and grab a cappuccino for fuel! I will be staying home checking out the deals online and then attempt to get all of our Christmas shopping done next week since James is on vacation. I'm sure he's really excited to hear he'll be shopping with me next week!


This jacket from Anthropologie (20% off today!) has become one of my 5 favorite things in my closet right now. It's really comfortable, super versatile, and can be dressed up or made casual depending on the look you are going for. My scarf I've blogged about before and is in my top 5 fav's too. My necklace is from a fabulous organization that a dear friend introduced me to, Bead for Life. It's an organization that enables impoverished women in Uganda to sell their beautiful rolled paper beaded jewelry and help bring them out of poverty by building and maintaining business skills to provide for their community and family. Make sure you check out the site online. You can host a party, even shop, or donate to the organization online.

Don't give me lip

In the winter time I tend to fall into the trap of more neutral colors in my wardrobe. An easy and fun way to bring a fun pop of color and make a look even more polished, is with a bright lip color. This happens to be my go-to at the moment, Bobbi Brown Cosmic Raspberry.
