Happy Friday! Today I’m sharing my first Amazon round up of the year, and I think it’s a good one! :)

This Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree is gorgeous and only $80! Bonus, it even ships in a planter! I love plants in a basket, too.

Finally, a food carrier that isn’t ugly! This thermal casserole and food carrier keeps food hot or cold, it comes in a lot of different colors (I also love this red), and there is even an adorable round pie/cake carrier version as well!

This Floor Length Mirror is both floor standing and wall hanging capable! I love this walnut one, but it comes in a lot of colors and finishes.

Okay I finally watched the short video about the Ring Video Doorbell and I have to say that I’m feeling it. You can actually chat with the visitor at the door, and see video footage of porch activity! Check it out here.

Maybe I’ve been under a rock and surely I’m not the only one, but did you know that this Fitbit Smartwatch has ALEXA built in?! I know.

These Bamboo Toothbrushes are perfect to have on hand for all the last minute sleepovers that inevitably happen with kids! Plus it’s a better option for the environment.

This Dyson Pure Hot Cool not only heats and cools the air, it also purifies it! It removes 99.97% of pollutants and allergens as small as 0.3 microns. I don’t know EXACTLY what this means but it sounds pretty effective to me!

So this Jute Rope Woven Doormat is classic and beautiful and only $22! Yep!

So this Dyson Airwrap has been on my wishlist for a while now. About a year, to be more exact. It actually dries your hair all while smoothing, curling, or just adding a little wave to your hair!

When we were in Harbour Island over Thanksgiving we met a family who had one of these Beach Tents and we saw them set it up a few different days and it was so easy and quick! It’s anchored by filling the bags with sand – so simple! I’m ordering one to keep at Coral House. There are a lot of different colors and patterns but I’m thinking the coral color is the right choice.

This Eero Wifi System covers 5,000 square feet of Wifi access! And it can pair with Alexa so that you can easily manage Wifi access for kids!

How adorable is this Fleece Popover Sweatshirt?! I’m all about relaxed and cozy clothes right now and this one is so cute!

Have a great weekend, Everyone!

10 days! I took a 10 day long break from blogging, I’m pretty sure my longest yet. We had a very Merry Christmas and spent 5 days in Indiana and Kentucky with my side of the family. I don’t know how it happened but it had been a whole year since I had been there last. I know SHAME. The years just go faster these days, and I don’t know, I have no real good excuse really. Can any of you relate?

2019 was a pretty good year for me. It came with challenges, but with a lot of excitements and new beginnings as well (more on that in the new year). No, not more babies, lol! Not that I can call mine “babies” anymore. Just look at those huge kids up there. Fletcher is basically as tall as his older sister! ANYway, if anyone has some Christmas cash burning a hole in their pockets then I have a few ideas for you from a couple end of the year sales happening right now!

SOME END OF YEAR SALES:

Nordstrom: It’s the half yearly 50% off sale! I’m all about easy, super comfortable pieces right now and I’m loving this long sleeve crew neck fuzzy top, these cotton pajamas (into the longer flower top with the legging look), and this slouchy turtleneck tunic sweater!

J.Crew: Take an extra 50% off of sale styles! This underwire swimsuit is one of my favorites that I own! This cozy open front sweater blazer could make even pajamas look pulled together, and also these cute black leather loafers!

Shopbop: They just added so much to their sale section and it’s full of good finds! Like this shawl collar sweater, these seamless underwear, and isn’t the color combo in this sweater so pretty?

Yesterday I started all of my holiday shopping and found myself on Chappy’s blanket website because they just make the best gifts for basically everyone. I discovered ChappyWrap this past summer when I was invited to an incredible lunch hosted by my friend Kristin at the founder’s home on Kiawah.

I can’t believe I haven’t shared these photos here yet! It was such a pretty and fun day with blogger friends. I hadn’t heard of ChappyWrap yet so it was great to get to know the mother and daughter behind the brand and see all of the designs in person.

And drink wine poolside and eat lobster rolls. I mean if only every day was like that.

Their kids collection of mini blankets is seriously adorable. I love the little blue fish print!!

If you still have someone on your list to buy for and are struggling, then here are some great ideas! They’re practically the only blankets we curl up with on the couch these days.

Shop Chappy’s whole site right here and take advantage of free shipping today, too! I have this blue stripe blanket and this creamy high tides blanket (you’ve probably seen them on my sofas in photos). Lilly and I fight over them every night! They’re seriously THE best.

Surprise!! I have another dreamy Giveaway for you today! I’ve partnered with my blogger friends Kristin Chambless and Jillian Eversole to give away an epic Charleston Getaway Giveaway Package!

We’ve partnered with some of our most favorite downtown Charleston spots to curate a pretty dreamy getaway package that makes even a local like me want to have a staycation! It all kicks off with a 2 night weekday stay at Zero George hotel, one of the most charming spots in the city. Zero George is a gorgeously restored historic, boutique hotel comprised of 16 lush guest rooms. The design throughout the main inn and 2 carriage houses is enchanting and is the best spot to relax. And the candle lit Zero restaurant is delicious, as well.

We have a few fun activities pulled together included in this giveaway to make for a perfect Charleston experience! Enjoy 2 Level 3 CBD Pedicures from The Water Room, Charleston’s nail salon with a clean conscience. Not only is The Water Room visually stunning, they focus on clean, non toxic beauty. It’s a truly special experience. Also included in the giveaway are 2 Walk & Talk Tour Charleton Tickets with the Lid Lady, Tyler Wright. I actually haven’t done one of her tours but it is now high on my list. Both Kristin and Jillian sing Tyler’s praises and I’m now wondering where she’s been all my life – must book a tour stat!! Additionally, one of my personal favorites, experience The Gibbes Museum for two! The Gibbes is art collection spans 4 centuries and connects the city’s artistic past and to a vibrant contemporary art scene. Included with the tickets is a snack in The Daily cafe located inside the museum, as well as a special discount in the museum store.

And because Charleston’s food scene is so fantastic, we are also including gift cards to 4 amazing downtown restaurants! First up, a $150 gift card to Henrietta’s! I recommend brunch or dinner at this brasserie, and prepare to stay awhile because it’s just so beautiful that you won’t want to leave! And how about a $100 gift card to the most instagramable restaurant in town, Basic Kitchen! Don’t worry, their locally sourced menu is just as amazing (I love the cauliflower wings for lunch). Next up, a $100 gift card to one of the best french bistros in town, Purlieu! They also happen to have one of my most favorite burgers ever. And lastly, cap off your night with drinks and a bite at Babas on Cannon. This spot is great with friends or for a date night – and the bartenders are some of the best in town!

And we have one more inclusion for our giveaway – a $500 gift card to my favorite clothing boutique in town, Hampden Clothing! I know!! Hampden carries the coolest new designers and spans over 4 retail spaces on King Street, so it’s basically impossible to walk out empty handed. And they were so sweet to dress Kristin, Jillian, and me for our giveaway shoot!

Wearing:

On Me: Pink Floral Dress

On Kristin: Ulla Johnson Dress

On Jillian: Pink Embroidered Collar Dress

So good, right? This Charleston Getaway Giveaway is worth nearly $2,000!! Enter below to win! We will draw a winner next Friday!

December is easily my favorite (and busiest) month of the year. I just love everything about the holidays, especially all of our family traditions. Each year we get a new set of family pajamas, and this year I ordered these grey plaid flannel pajamas.

I love a good holiday party or dinner out as much as the next person, but staying home in my cozy pajamas watching holiday movies and eating popcorn is all that I truly want to do. Our favorite family holiday movies include the new Grinch, Elf, Home Alone, and The Polar Express. And it just isn’t Christmas if I don’t watch Love Actually and Christmas Vacation (after the kids are in bed, of course).

I found these flannel pajamas in the Nordstrom Made section on their site. This is where you can find all the brands created by Nordstrom for you specifically, with fashion and value in mind! You probably know of a lot of the brands already, like Halogen, Chelsea28, and BP. The Nordstrom Made section is also where you will find all of Nordstrom’s amazing collaborations with inspiring bloggers like Atlantic Pacific, Something Navy, and Rachel Parcell.

I included these butter crew socks I’m wearing in one of my gift guides, and let me tell you they really are the softest socks of all time. They come in a lot of colors, too. Lilly’s wearing these cozy printed socks, and Fletcher is wearing these red plaid socks.

Another favorite family tradition that might be the most fun is our Elf on the Shelf, Buddy, that visits us each year. Every morning Lilly and Fletcher run downstairs to find him. It’s seriously the most joyful and amazing memory maker. The kids love leaving notes for him.

And what would December be without holiday baking?! Decorating sugar cookies is so much fun and the best family night in activity and the kids love it!

Shop Nordstrom’s Holiday Gift Guide and enjoy all of Nordstrom’s services (free shipping and returns, BOPUS, curbside pick up).

We just made the CUTEST update in Lilly’s room! I partnered with DucDuc (our favorite furniture line for kids) on a new dresser for Lilly’s clothes that were beginning to bust out of her teeny closet. Putting away her clean clothes is SO much more enjoyable now.

And it doesn’t hurt that this Austin 6 Drawer Credenza is absolutely gorgeous! The fun thing about DucDuc is that all of their furniture it customizable! You can pick your colors, your trim finish, your drawer color, hardware… The possibilities are practically endless. We chose a classic look and went with white with natural oak finish.

And we did a fun orange drawer interior for some color and to coordinate with Lilly’s DucDuc Cabana Desk! Photo below is from a couple of years ago, Lilly has grown!

We chose white ring pull hardware to coordinate as well. I love the look!

I love how it turned out, and so does Lilly! I highly recommend checking out DucDuc’s whole collection. They have the perfect mix of fun yet beautiful pieces, and each piece is hand crafted and made to order in Connecticut! Big thanks to DucDuc for this beautiful new piece!
