Winter Fashion Trends: What I Love Now

Happy Wednesday!

After a scorching hot summer in Vegas....I thoroughly look forward to Fall & Winter.  About the end of July, I start craving a day of cold weather so I can wear jeans, sweaters & boots. Growing up in Hawaii, I never really got a chance to bundle up and enjoy the cold weather fashions.  Now that I can, I take full advantage! Here are a few of the style that I am loving right now:

Plaid Button Downs
Not a fan of the jewelry, but I love the plaid shirt, jeans & boots

Add a sweater to wear a different way
Also cute with an oversized cardigan

Bright Colors


Leopard Flats & Scarfs
If you are a Tom's Person...
Loving Pink & Leopard
And Green & Leopard
For a casual & put together look

Pair with a oversized sweater and you've got a cute & comfy look

Boot socks add a little to your outfit and keep you nice and toasty

Here is a cute pair with lace

Bell Sleeves

Classic Black
Or a bolder piece-Pink with laced cuffs
Dress up a dress with a bright pink blazer...add some tights to make it cold weather appropriate

Casual tees & comfy tennies

I'll leave with with a to tuck in non-skinny jeans into boots:
All styles found on Pinterest

All of these looks are very mommy friendly.  The dresses are probably more appropriate for a date night...but it is always fun to dress up once in a while. These looks help you still look cute and put together when you are chasing around after your little one, changing diapers, and running errands. 

What is your favorite?

Christmas Bucket List

I decided it would be fun to create my own "Christmas Bucket List".  There are so many things you can do during the Holidays, it can be overwhelming.  To help me narrow it down, I made a list of all of the things I want to do before Christmas is over.  This is what I came up with:

This idea came from Pinterest
I plan on putting it up on my fridge and check each thing off as I complete it. 
Feel free to steal it if you like ;)

Detox From The Holidays

I love the Holidays...but I indulge a little too much. Halloween and Thanksgiving have just come and gone, and Christmas is on its way.  If you feel anything like I do, you want to try and rid your body of toxins and get your energy back. 

Apparently, I am not alone.  Last night, my friend Stacy, texted me and suggested I do my next blog entry on recipes that help you detox from Thanksgiving.  Obviously, I thought it was a great idea, and am taking her advice.  She must have read my mind...but all weekend I felt like I had gained 10 lbs, after enjoying all of the delicious and rich food and drinks that come along with Thanksgiving.

I am starting a, "Weekly Recipe Round Up", where every Monday I will be posting a weeks worth of recipes. I will start it off with a few detox recipes.  I hope the below recipes will help you feel less bloated and give you your energy back :)

Avocado is a great food to help detox. They aid in making the intestinal walls slippery, helping the toxins to be absorbed by the oil, and removed from the body.

Beets contain a fiber called, Pectin, which aids in cleaning the toxins that have been eliminated from the liver, allowing the to be eliminated from your body, and not reabsorbed.

Garlic is full of antioxidants, and aids in the destruction of free radicals (particles that can mutate cell membranes and DNA, and potentially speed up the aging process as well as increase the risk for heart disease and cancer.) Antioxidants neutralize free radicals and may reduce or even help prevent some of the damage they cause over time.

Kale contains chlorophyll which helps boost your digestive tract and liver, ridding your body of harmful chemicals and toxins.

Grapefruit jump-starts the digestive system and helps calm heartburn, gas and bloating. It also aids in lowering cholesterol and preventing breast cancer. 

Fruit Infused Water
Add strawberries, lemons, limes, oranges & mint to some ice water & enjoy!
Citurs fruits help the body rid itself of toxins, as well as help the digestive tract with enzymatic processes. Citrus fruits also help cleanse the liver. 

Kombucha is known to balance the pH of the blood which helps kill pathogenic bacteria.
My favorite is GT's Guava Goddess

I hope that these recipes help you get back on track.  I know I will be making a few of these recipes this week. Happy Monday!!
