1. Pottery Barn $119
2. Target's Cream Flokati Throw $12.99
So I absolutely love Pottery Barn's tree skirts because they are classic, simple, & they can be monogrammed. Unfortunately I don't own one:( The one we have stored in our attic is one of those god awful red and green felt tree skirts from Walgreens (I was desperate last year). I don't even want to look at it when we pull down our X-Mas decorations because in my eyes it takes away from our perfect tree!
Since I know the PB skirt will go on sale after Christmas I decided to come up with a substitute for now & who knows I might love it?! The cream throw from Target is a perfect match! You can use it as a throw on the couch & then drape it around the base of the tree during the holiday season. It creates a snow like affect and it saves me $106!!
My current hair style most resembles Whitney Ports. I really like the look of letting your natural growth from the roots blended with a lighter/brighter shade at the crown to the ends. I have been working with my fabulous hairstylist Alyana at Zolton's salon to achieve this look and I think I am almost there. Now that winter is approaching I think it is a great time to give your hair a break from color and go a bit darker.
I am also digging bangs at the moment but I am not sure if I am ready just yet! Here are a few pictures for inspiration.

I am trying to watch my Carbs and so while browsing at Whole Foods at lunch today I came across a yummy cucumber salad at the cold deli counter. You pretty much have to love cucumbers because it is the main ingredient! I memorized the list of the ingredients because it looked so ridiculously simple to copy at home. Here are the rough ingredients, the seasoning will have to be to taste because I don't have the measurements:) Helpful right?!?
2 Cucumbers peeled and cut into wedges (bite sized)
1/2 Red Pepper thinly sliced and diced
3 Green onions diced
2-3 Limes - juice only
Fresh Cilantro -handful
I would cut the cucumbers, red peppers, green onions, and cilantro.... place in serving bowl. Next I would mix in a separate bowl the lime juice, olive oil, sea salt, and white pepper. Adding a little at a time until the desired tangy/tartness that you like! Pour over the cucumbers and mix thoroughly... ENJOY!

I LOVE the look of winter white/ivory it is so crisp and classic looking. I think it looks flattering on all skin types and hair colors. You don't want to know the prices of any of the items above (trust me) because they are BUDGET BLOWERS! I posted these pictures strictly for inspiration because they are out of this world expensive but gorgeous to look at. I will be looking to add some winter white to my wardrobe once I find a budget friendly version!

So I may be getting ahead of myself but it did HAIL here in Arizona yesterday! So now I am in full swing holiday/winter mode. Winter to me means fires in the fireplace which we don't have so I substitute with lots of pretty candles, a warm cozy blanket, and holiday decorations EVERYWHERE! I found all of the items above at one of my favorite stores West Elm. The mercury votive candles add a little sparkle for only $5. The faux fur blankets are luxurious looking and are $119 each. The plush pom pom blanket is priced at $59. Lastly, my two favorite pieces are the wood deer & moose wall art. I have never seen anything like them and of course they are animal friendly. The deer is $12 and the moose head is $28. I am most definitely going to buy the reindeer for Christmas time!
