Christmas Card

I just wanted to take a moment to wish you all a very happy holiday season! I also wanted to test out uploading pictures to my blog since I am new to the blogging world!

This was our Christmas card picture this year! The change in Layla is drastic from the card we sent out last year:
It always cracks me up seeing pictures of her when she was so tiny! 

This year we also decided to raid our local thrift stores and wear "tacky sweaters" to our family Christmas party! Here is a picture of me with some of my siblings showing off our picks! And below is Layla's "tacky shirt"-- a sweatshirt with hand-painted snowflakes and a snowman-- something very similar to what my mom would have dressed me in when I was growing up in the late 80's haha!

I hope you all have enjoyed this time with family and friends, and are all looking forward to another new year as much as I am! 



Hey guys!
So I finally decided it might be time for me to start blogging in addition to making videos on YouTube :) I plan to make accompanying posts for most of my uploads, and also additional blog posts for beauty and fashion related things that don't warrant a video!

I am so excited to start a blog to share even more beauty, hair, fashion and general girly-ness tips with you all! Plus I will probably also include some random ramblings and updates on our move, new home, and wedding plans!
