Don’t make the same mistake as I did one night by dancing so aggressively that you can’t walk and therefore have to get a piggyback ride all the way back home. The lazy gals guide to party wear is now live on the blog ✨

Despite feeling a little bit rough today (after several hectic days plus quite a lot of travel, I came down with a migraine last night), I'm trying to have an 'easy' day whilst still getting some work done! So I decided to photograph all the recent painted stone, sea glass and beach pottery pieces for the shop...and actually get them in there! 😄 (I'll let you know via my IG Story later when they're ready to buy). This photo shows a selection but not all of them, and some of these are already reserved for people since I shared them on here a few days ago.
This is unrelated, but I wanted to share my thoughts about something I've been thinking about over the past few days. Dominic and I were having an interesting discussion about a particular type of person we've both experienced in our lives, seemingly repeatedly. I won't go into too much detail but if you find that you're repeatedly targeted by people who could be described as domineering, manipulating, and disrespecting of you or your opinions or beliefs, you need to understand that they WILL target people who they believe they CAN manipulate. In other words, people who don't like to say 'no', who tend to be 'people pleasers' and who, because of these traits, (and kindness/empathy are positive traits) have very weak boundaries. I used to be a person with weak boundaries. I would trust people, believing that essentially everyone is 'good' (this is not true; most are, but many aren't), and I would allow myself to be guilt-tripped and manipulated into situations I wasn't comfortable with. I've changed a lot over the past few years, and this has been a time of enormous growth for me. This is obviously a subject which needs to be talked about in more depth, because it's very nuanced and there's a lot more to this type of behaviour than I'm describing here, but I hope that you can at least get the gist of what I'm saying. Basically, trust your gut instinct (it's your most reliable source of gauging whether something isn't right) & protect yourself. Be strong & be true to your values, ignore negativity, & don't be dragged into manufactured drama. You don't have to be. 🖤
This little one spent the night in bed with me and T. He’s not feeling well at all. Still asleep at almost 9, and I’m hoping the extra rest helps him to fight off whatever sickness he’s got right now. 💔
Kristyn and Jon’s Wedding last night was the perfect way to wrap up 2017 and put a big bow on it! Beautiful couple, beautiful venue, a dream team of vendors...lots of warmth and coziness for this winter mountaintop wedding! Cheers to the new Mr. and Mrs. LaCroix!
My husband and I are deep into the Netflix show, Reign right now. It’s pretty terrible acting, but I really watch it for the flowing dresses of Queen Mary and her ladies. It’s all in the details with dresses like theirs. #spicedwinterred#caliente#designisinthedetails
I’m so excited I made my first beauty video using the time lapse feature on the iPhone 8+ I can’t wait to make more videos it was so fun making it. I got to try the new Stila Holiday 2017 Color Voyage Collection. All of the colours are beautiful and perfect for this holiday season.

Hello again!🙂 Christmas is just about a week away and it really looks like Christmas everywhere! Have you all done with Christmas shopping? I haven't started yet but still I've got a whole week before Christmas. :) If you have bookworm friends and are not sure what book to gift them, let them experience Book of the Month subscription box. If you followed me for a long time, you have probably heard me enough saying that I love this box so so much.
What I really like about @bookofthemonth is:
* all the memebers get to early access to new releases and debut novels.
* you can choose what you want to read(among 5 selections every month)
* sometimes little goodies come along with the book and that's a lovely surprise!
* you can always skip a month when you don't have time for reading.
Also, if you gift a BOTM subscription to your friends, you will also get a free month for yourself! Hope this was helpful for the Christmas gift ideas and have a great start of the weekend!😘 #botmbookbassador#botm
