This gift guide is all about gifts for the cozy girl – the girl in your life who loves to stay at home, cozy up, and her idea of a perfect Saturday morning is one spent in slippers and cozy clothes. I, personally, would consider myself a complete homebody, so this list was probably the easiest of them all for me to make. If I don’t already have it, it’a safe bet all of these things are on my wish list…

How to Wear Floral Dresses Year Round

Just because summer is long gone doesn’t mean you have to make due without your favorite floral pieces until next spring. Botanical prints are personally one of my favorite! I love the texture a floral element can immediately bring to a look. Plus, you can’t get much more feminine than a dress covered in blooms, am I right? With Thanksgiving next week and the holidays right around the corner, festive looks and party dresses are on everyone’s mind. It’s the perfect time to reach for some of those favorite floral looks in your closet and re-wear them this season. If…

Blowing Rock Road Trip with Toyota
Blowing Rock, NC

Blowing Rock Road Trip with Toyota

Southeast Toyota Distributors, LLC (“Toyota”) provided me with compensation and use of a Corolla for a short period of time. The opinions I have shared about this vehicle are my own. It’s so hard to believe November is already here, and the fall season is well underway. Ever since I was a child, it’s been a tradition every year to drive up to the mountains of North Carolina and see the beautiful fall foliage. There’s nothing like coasting down the Blue Ridge Parkway (warm apple cider in hand) and pulling over at every overlook to check out the view. This…
