huge cyber monday list
I'm not sure what I love more, Black Friday or Cyber Monday.  Black Friday has always been fun because you get your Starbucks and you get to people watch.  Plus the deals really are amazing.  However, Cyber Monday is done from your couch while you wear your pjs and drink your Starbucks... so really it's a toss up between which one is better.  However, since it is Cyber Monday today and you might be going in between websites to figure out the best deals let me give you a hand.  I have listed all of my absolute favorite stores and the deals that they have going on today.

I don't know about you guys, but on my fall to-do list getting most of my Christmas shopping done was a must! Especially since all these deals are going on.  I mean did you know that the Wish app offers 15% off of everything on top of their extremely low prices.  It's pretty awesome!  Between switching tabs and trying to do the math on which website has the best deals, it can get pretty tiring.  I went through all the websites and found the best of the best deals going on today.  A lot of them include free shipping!

thanksgiving outfit inspiration
I absolutely love Thanksgiving.  It's such a wonderful time because you get to hangout with family,  go black Friday shopping, and eat a huge feast!  I mean, what's not to love?  This year my family and I are starting a new tradition.  Since I'm coming home for such a long Christmas break, my mom thought it would be fun to come to me for Thanksgiving.  I live only thirty minutes from the beach so we decided to rent a beach house!  Talk about fun!  I have never spent Thanksgiving while staring at the ocean and I must say I simply cannot wait.

Another thing I love about Thanksgiving is that everyone gets dressed up!  I love any excuse to put together a new outfit.  I especially love that you basically get dressed up to spend all day in the kitchen and then sit down with your family.  It's laughable really, but I enjoy it just as much as the next person.  I wanted to put together an outfit that is dressy but comfy this year and I think I found the perfect items!

You don't need to spend money on a new outfit for a one day event.  Especially since you probably have so many pieces that can be put together from your closet.  That's exactly what I did.  I went for a simple black dress and paired it with a few accessories that really made it stand out!  The first thing is the brown leather items that went with it.  I paired it with a leather jacket and a leather belt to tie around my waist.  The belt helps make the dress look less "puffy."  The jacket was perfect for when I had to step outside, but once I was inside the hot kitchen the dress still looked cute without it.  For jewelry I kept it simple, with a ring or two and a small dainty necklace.  My favorite part of the outfit though were my knee high black boots and the boot socks with my monogram on it.  It's a cute detail like that that really tied the outfit together.

There's endless combinations of outifts that you could put together, I just wanted to keep mine simple, comfortable, and free!  What do you plan on wearing for Thanksgiving this year?  Leave me a comment below!

xoxo, Michele

Something that has become very popular over the past couple years have been online newsletter subscriptions.  You can subscribe to your favorite bloggers, celebrities, newspapers, magazines, website.. and so much more.  It's as simple as entering your e-mail and every so often you'll get an email keeping you up to date with the latest information.  I am subscribed to a handful of different newsletters and today I'm going to share my all-time favorites with you!
mad for plaid
Fall time is one of my favorite times.  It's because you can wear jeans and leggings all the time and no one can judge you!  I love when the leaves start to turn colors and all the plaid starts to come out into the world.  Plaid shirts are one of my go-to fashion pieces.  I have a loose plaid shirt, a button up plaid shirt, a plaid cover.. I mean the possibilites are endless.
