The office holiday party comes but once a year and when it does, there is no better time to let loose with your coworkers– just remember you have to see them again on Monday! So how do you tackle the office holiday party? With my 4 S’s: Stun, Socialize, Snack and let’s not forget Sip! You’ll stun in gorgeous holiday look, socialize with ease and snack and sip without falling off the paleo wagon.
This winter I am breaking out my most sparkly jewels. From this J. Crew Factory stunner to my all time favorite Chloe and Isabel bracelets (here and here). After all, nothing completes a holiday outfit like a little bling! Sparkly baubles really are the icing on the cake in my book. And with all of the holiday sales going on there is no better to score a great deal on some sparkle!
Today I’m offering 25% off my Chloe + Isabel Boutique with the promo code “FRIEND” - Shop here!
Want a little more bling? Check back on Friday for an amazing sale on JoJo Loves You Blings!
One of my favorite things about having paleo friends is when they introduce me to new paleo recipes, especially dessert recipes! So you can imagine how excited I was when our friend Jess surprised us with a batch of Chocolate Chip Bars. Not quite a cookie or muffin, these ooey gooey bars remind me almost of a brownie and are filled with chocolate chips sure to satisfy your sweet tooth!
Toys come and go but style is forever (until they grow out of their clothes)! While I always support a good movie, book or sports game, I like to find unique gifts for my younger siblings and cousins. How adorable is that initial necklace for a little girl? And who wouldn’t love to find Despicable Me under the tree?
Somedays you just want to throw in the towel and give up, but remember good things only come to those who work hard. Last week I was finally rewarded for something that I had been working on for a very long time and it was so worth it!
Dressing for holiday parties this year just got as easy as one, two, three! Achieve the perfect holiday party look by picking out a fun dress that makes you want to dance. You’ll know you’ve found the right one when you literally can’t stop shaking and spinning in it (because just look at what happens when you spin!). Then pair the dress with the perfect pair of pumps. Since it is winter, I often opt for a dressy bootie that is stylish, comfortable and will keep my toes warm as I hike across the city. Lastly, pile on the bling! Because every lady sparkles more with a little icing!
Today I thought I would share some of my favorite shots from Thanksgiving with you all.
I had a lovely week back home with my amazing family and I could not have asked for a happier Thanksgiving or Birthday. I feel truly blessed not only to have these amazing people in my life but to have the opportunity to see them and spend time with them as often as I do.
One of my favorite things about the holidays is gathering around the breakfast bar for baked breakfast treats and a big cup of coffee with the family. Since Grand Cinnamon Buns and Entenmann’s donut holes aren’t exactly paleo friendly, I came up with this delicious Cinnamon Coffee Cake Crumble for this year’s holiday breakfast!
