Christmas Aftermath

I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas.  Ours was great!  Peyton got her Frozen castle that has been sold out since it hit the market.  After calling several stores across the country where I had friends that could pick it up for me, I found one!  After we opened all our gifts, we headed over to a friends house to have dinner together with all our kids.  It was so awesome to see our kids have a ball together.  Since we were at a friends house, we dressed pretty causal.

Happy Holidays!  I still have a lot to do before Christmas. I have not wrapped one gift yet!  Our tree looks sad!  Friday night, I took Peyton to see the new Annie movie with Quvenzhane Wallis.  In Baby Shopaholic fashion, she wore an outfit from the Annie collection at Target.

Winterize your beauty routine with #Aveeno

I winterized my skin from the inside out with Aveeno® Active Naturals as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #Aveeno

Just like you change up your wardrobe for the season, you have to change up your beauty routine. You don’t wear linen dresses in the wintertime do you? Don’t answer that.  Just like you need to change up your clothes, you need to make adjustments to your beauty routine. Nothing major, just add products that will protect your skin during these cold winter months. The new Aveeno® Positively Radiant® CC Cream is a great product to start to with to winterize your beauty routine.

Mamanista Fridays: Ugly Christmas Sweater

It's the last Friday before Christmas!  If I wasn't in the Christmas spirit last week, I am now!  This week has been crazy with Holiday programs, making teacher gifts and class parties for Peyton.  I still need to buy most of my gifts.  At least I still have a few days.  In the meantime, check out how Mama Fashion Files and I rocked our "Ugly" sweaters for Mamanista Friday.

Gift Idea for Teachers: Gift in a Jar

Our holiday festivities are in full swing at the Baby Shopaholic house hold.  Peyton had her school holiday program on Tues.  You can see how totes adorbs she look HERE.  She also has a classroom party this week.  You don't want to be that mom that doesn't get the teachers a gift.  She has three teachers that she needs presents for and that can get pretty pricey.  Piggy backing off of what I did last year, I put together these super cheap and easy Gift in a Jar.  I saw something like this on Pinterest last year and decided to go for it.

Cozy in J. Jill + $100 Gift Card Giveaway

Every woman should have a beautiful sweater that they can pull out in the cold weather months.  I'm loving my new J. Jill "Grandpa" sweater.  I made up the Grandpa part.  The "Grandpa" is what attracted me to the sweater when I saw it at the new J. Jill location at the Avalon Mall.  J. Jill's relaxed and uncomplicated pieces make great outfits that you will want to wear everyday.  Keep reading to enter to win $100 gift card to pick up some new pieces for the New Year!

One Million Good Nights

For the fifth year, Atlanta-based Carter’s Babies and Kids is proud to partner with the Pajama Program’s “One Million Good Nights” campaign to donate 100,000 pairs of pajamas to children in need. The Carter’s pajama donation drive comes at a critical time as December marks “Danger Season,” the time of year when temperatures begin to drop leaving underserved children in need of warm sleepwear and comfort. Many of these children have been abused, abandoned or neglected and live in group homes, shelters or temporary housing without adequate heat. The gift of a new pair of pajamas can provide children in need with a glimmer of hope and a feeling that someone cares about their well-being. Every child deserves to sleep in their own pjs every night!

Colorful Winter Casual

 I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.  We finally got a tree this weekend!  And Peyton is the Christmas Boss.  She went with Mister to pick out the tree, then came home to tell us how to decorate.  This girl wastes no time and plays no games when it comes to the Christmas tree.  Truth be told, if it wasn't for her, we probably wouldn't have a tree.  For Peyton's tree hunting adventure, we kept it casual with some bright colors.

Mamanista Fridays: The Holiday Party

Happy Friday!  I'm sure you all have some kind of holiday party to attend over the next few weeks.  With every invite that comes your way, the big question is, what am I going to wear?  Mama Fashion Files and I thought it would be a good idea to rock our holiday party looks.

Skinny + Spiked Nog #SweetNLowStars

This week I made my Sweet’N Low Skinny + Spiked Nog as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #SweetNLowStars.
You can't celebrate the holidays without having a delicious drink.  I've gotten pretty good about coming up with my own easy low calorie and low sugar drinks that you can make at home using Sweet'N Low.  Not only will you save big bucks, but you save room in your waist line.  Lawd knows I need to be counting every calorie.  I'm still going hard on the eating from Thanksgiving.  I know you've noticed on my pictures but just act like you didn't.  I found a way to make the guilt free drink of the season, Eggnog.

8 Red Lipsticks on My Lips for the Holidays

I've crowned myself as the queen of red lips.  Since I wear so much red, I thought I would go through my stash to swatch some of my favorite reds.  I shaved my mustache and went to work with the best holiday reds starting at $6!

Touch of Plaid

Happy  Holidays!  I'm only saying that to remind myself that Christmas is a little over two weeks away.  Eek! We don't have a tree up and not one present has been purchased (I did track down a Frozen castle).  Luckily I have the Very Merry Gift Guide to help me out.  In addition to saying Happy Holidays every chance I can, I'm also adding a hint of red to all our outfits.   This little plaid scarf of Peyton's is perfect.

Belle of the Ball in Isabel Garreton

Besides special occasions, holidays give you a reason to dress to the nines.  Peyton loves dressing casual just as much as she loves looking glam.  I'm exited to introduce you to the holy grail of little girls dresses, Isabel Garretón.  Seriously, Isabel Garretón for little girls is like what Zac Posen is to us ladies.  Isabel Garretón designs are contemporary but possess timeless elegance.  Watch Peyton "werk" in her Isabel Garretón holiday dress.
