giftguideHi friends!I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I think i am still stuffed! I made  these delicious Caramel Apple Mimosas and had my sister and family over for dinner. Good times! I know tomorrow is Black Friday and I don't go NEAR a mall, or venture out shopping at all. I am not a fan of crowds, that feeling of there being something I MUST have, as I think the meaning of the holidays dissapear with all of the madness! I'm bringing you the first of my Gift Guides today.

IMG_7007IMG_7037Hello Ladies!What do maple, rosewood, and koa wood have in common? Yes, I know these are great woods used in guitar making. However are taking fashion here though. Give up? These are all woods used in the making of some of the JORD watches, particuarly the watches I own. With this review, I chose the Fieldcrest Maple watch, a watch different from the others I own. I typically choose a smaller watch face as I have skinny wrists, however this time I went for the trend of a larger watch face for a different look The Fieldcrest series is considered unisex, so if you are interested in this look or want a slightly larger watchface, this line has that. I want to add another link to this to make it more like a bracelet hanging from my wrist, and was provided with a few extra links..If you are not familiar with JORD, I have worked with them in the past, and reviewed the Cora Koa and Rose Gold Watch, and the Ely Red Sandalwood watch for their darker wood and beautiful watch faces. These watches have a smaller watch face.  JORD is a company that I respect for their workmanship and love the aesthetic look of their watches. With this look today, I wanted a neutral, natural look with texture from the watch, lace skirt and faux snakeskin t-strap flats. ( they are new! )  A bit of color was added to this all neutral look with the pink Balenciaga Rose City Bag adding a soft tone to this feminine look. Read both reviews HERE and HERE.

IMG_5965 Happy Monday EveryoneHard to believe Christmas  has come and gone. All the preparing for it, and the excitement leading up to it can linger a bit, then the day is here and quickly over. However, we keep our tree up for a while, and also celebrate the New Year. My title refers to  Christmas Eve, when my husband gave me one gift to open. I know for many it is a tradition, and we do this on occasion. It was a Downton Abbey Christmas ornament of the car complete with Tom, the former chauffeur of the family.

IMG_5654Hello LadiesI hope everyone is ready for Christmas. It is time to be with family, enjoy and appreciate what we all have , and bring joy to our loved ones by giving gifts, and being together. We spend our Holidays at home in Charlotte. I like to dress in comfort, but dressy enough to go out for last minute activities. The great thing about this latest #Karinadress, is that it is wearbable all year. Ruby, a sleeveless style here, is styled by my red roses cardigan I wanted to pair with this paisley print.
