Happy Turkey Day!

Hi lovelies, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I am still stuffed from the delicious meal I had with my family.  I have so much to be thankful for! 

Over the past few weeks, college applications have taken over my life, which has left me with little time for blogging.  But don't worry, I'm back (at least for now!).  The past few days I have been a homebody, enjoying family and friends. I just finished an amazing book, Sarah's Key. If you need a book to read by the fire I definitely recommend it (but be warned, it's a heavy subject-matter).
On the fashion front, it is finally feeling like fall here in LA and I just ordered the cutest new Steve Madden boots. I love the buckles/straps and can't wait to wear them out!

Gift Giving

Gift giving is always hard, especially when you are giving the gift to someone you are close to. Today is my mom's birthday. Most years my sister, my dad, and I try to find a gift together, but my mom always seems to end up returning it for one reason or another. This year I was determined to find my mom the perfect gift. I narrowed my search down by restricting myself to Nordstrom.  I just started working there, so the discount was a plus! As I was searching through the store for a cute blouse or sweater, I came across this Free People sweater. I loved the knit work and style so I decided to take a leap of faith and buy it. When time came for my mom to open it, I was delighted when she smiled and said she loved it. The only problem was that it was too big. Oh well, at least I tried! 

P.S. Happy Birthday Mommy!
