From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank each and everyone of you who read my blog.  It really does mean so much!!  One of my favorite quotes this year has been "Celebrate every tiny victory" So sweet and simple.  It helps me stay motivated and to keep pursuing my dreams - even when it feels like I am getting nowhere.  Just remember that if you can dream it you can do it!  No matter what people tell you, never give up.  Here's to an amazing year!! 


Until next time year,

Xoxo, Natalie

New Year's Eve Inspiration

     I cannot believe that it will be 2016 on Friday!  What?!  This year has been great.  A lot of changes, but good changes.  I met my best friend, started a blog, got my first Lilly item, and found my love for baking!   Of course, that's not all that happened in 2015.  If I listed everything, then this would be a very long blog post!

     With New Year's Eve on Thursday, I thought I would share some pictures to get you inspired.  Like what to wear, bake, make, you name it!  So without further ado, let's get inspired. :)

What I Got for Christmas 2015

     Hello loves!  I hope everyone had a VERY Merry Christmas!  I had a great day spent with my family.  Now though, I am having serious Christmas withdrawals. :(  Today, I thought I would share a few gifts I received. 


Side Note: The reason we celebrate Christmas is because of our Savior's birth!  I know it is not about the gifts.  I am so thankful for everything I got.  We were blessed this year to be able to purchase gifts for each other.







I am in love with this beautiful candle from Pier1!




My best friend made me two pairs of earrings! I love them so much. {the pair above has the word blessed engraved in it}



Christmas doesn't have to be just on December 25th.  Christmas can be every day of the year!  All you need is a little bit of kindness and thoughtfulness, sprinkled with the love of Jesus.  


Until next time,

Xoxo, Natalie

Merry Christmas 2015




Merry Christmas darlings!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!  Most importantly, let's keep Christ in Christmas.  How wonderful it is that we can celebrate our Savior's birth!

I hope your day is filled with joy and laughter {and a whole lotta Jesus ;)}


Until next time,

Xoxo, Natalie

Plaid Skirt






 


Plaid Skirt // Similar Black Turtleneck // Black Over The Knee Socks {it looks like the black version is only sold in stores. Sorry!} // Similar Necklace // Similar Kate Spade Handbag {less expensive here}


Merry Christmas Eve!

 To say I'm in love with this skirt would be an understatement.  You know that one piece of clothing in your closet that you have been "saving" for no particular reason.  Well, this skirt was that special piece.  One of the reasons that drew me to this beautiful skirt was the pockets.  I'm a sucker for dresses and skirts with pockets!  This skirt would look great paired with a sequin top for NYE {or vice versa}

I hope you all have a wonderful day.  Only a few more hours until it's officially Christmas!

Present Wrapping....









How cute are these?!  I got them at Target in the $1 section.


You can download these cute gift tags here!



 I think I'm more excited about my the wrapping paper than I am about the gift...


 My mom picked out this tag for me! ;)






     This week I have been doing last minute Christmas shopping and gift wrapping.  This year I wanted to make my presents look a little more........well, pretty.   Not going to lie, I am a sloooww wrapper!  I'm not even halfway done!  Well, maybe that's because I haven't finished Christmas shopping yet...  

     This year I wanted to put a little more thought into my wrapping.  I wanted it to look pretty on the outside, just as much as it does on the inside.  Like I said, I have been taking my time - curling ribbon, adding bells and pretty gift tags.  So, it looks like I will be up at 2 a.m. on Christmas Eve trying to get everyone's presents wrapped.  Oh what fun! ;)  



Have a fabulous Tuesday!

Until next time,

Xoxo, Natalie
