During the holidays, I feel like I am so stretched for time. My busy days get even busier and I find myself desperate to find a bit of extra time any way I can. Busy times like this I find myself pairing my daily beauty routine back to the basics. I turn to beauty products that can serve double duty and tend to look for things that are fast acting but effective. Most mornings my amazing husband starts the day with the kids by making breakfast and packing lunches. While he is busy downstairs starting the day, I am taking my shower and getting ready to great the day.

Appetizers are always hard for me especially around the holidays. All my favorite appetizers are either summer themed or they are hot which gets complicated if you have too many. When you have too many hot appetizers some will inevitably get cold while waiting for the others to be heated up. This year I knew I needed to find an easy appetizer that could be made ahead of time and served cold, while still looking great. A tall order, yes, but I did it and I am loving the result.
I am really excited to once again be teaming up with the stylish ladies over at Take Time for Style, this time we are discussing Holiday Style. When I think holiday style I immediately think of red pants. I bought these wide leg red pant last year to wear on Christmas Day and they were perfect. I am still loving these red wide leg pants so I am bringing them back with a new top for a more updated look. This year I decided to add a cold shoulder top. Cold shoulder tops are the big trend of 2016 so why not finish out the year with one.
I am constantly on my feet and on the go so I need comfortable and supportive shoes. As you know I also like style so these snakeskin sneakers from Vionic were calling my name. I had the pleasure of trying out some Vionic shoes a few years ago and was amazed at the supportive footbed they provide. Even knowing the brand I was skeptical these sneakers would have the same support. Upon looking at the style they did not look like they would have much support, they seemed to be a typical fashion sneaker with a flt footbed, I am happy to say I was wrong. The Vionic Torri Natural Snake Sneaker comes with a very supportive orthotic made with the Vionic orthoheel technology that hugs and supports the foot. I can walk all day, carrying a kid, and feel amazing.
I love supporting small businesses especially small online boutiques. Not only do I get to support entrepeneurs but I don’t have to worry about someone else showing up in the same outfit. Swirling Honey Boutique is a super cute online boutique full of stylish finds. Swirling Honey is a woman owned business based in North Carolina that prides itself on trendy pieces at great prices. I am really impressed with all they have to offer and found quite a few pieces to love.
