December Newsletter :

My Bi monthly December Newsletter is out , and I’m so excited to be adding this to my highlights. It’s a simple way of finding all my favorite things this holiday season. I’ll be adding more in my links and IG stories as well.

Holidays can be so overwhelming if you let it . I try to make it fun each year. I dedicate the end of November to decorating and shopping and then I try to use all of December to wrap, party , binge watch my favorite movies and bake my favorite treats. You can agree … December is fun! I love shopping online and in my favorite big city stores. Throwing a few parties in there and dressing up is also fun. I love the social aspect of the holidays.

This year there are so many great finds. Im a self care kinda gal, so I love giving gifts to help ladies treat themselves to feeling their ultimate best. I feel it’s so important to take good care of yourself so you can show up each and every day feeling your best for yourself and the people that count on you. Next year, I’m dedicating a portion of my website to health because it’s such an important part of my life! More on that soon… On a brighter note, let’s talk fashion, gift giving and the best things to buy this year.

Loving my Zara Boots!

I have found some really great gift items this year that I think you all would love. I am loving all the bodysuit styles I’m seeing in every store, magazine and website. The best thing about bodysuits is that they are so durable, comfortable and can be dressed up or down, depending on your mood. I love them with jeans and a great pair of satin pants. I’m loving satin right now. Abercrombie, Express and Aritzia have some amazing bodysuits. My all time favorites are from Skims and Good American.

Zara has some amazing boots from their winter collection that I’m loving so much. Their stiletto heels , platform riding boots and cowboy boots are my favorite. These boots are always a great way to dress up your favorite jeans or favorite pair of leggings. I love Zara because their clothes are versatile and honestly remind me of European fashion. They offer some great pieces to add to any wardrobe.

Such comfortable boots

Trenches are so popular right now. I can’t get enough of them. They look amazing with a sweatsuit, leggings, jeans and any type of dressy fashion. It’s like the icing on the cake when you add a trench coat into play. Aritzia has some amazing trenches in some fabulous colors.

A great item that I’m loving this year is a good diffuser . This is an item that will never get old. Adding your favorite oils everyday just adds some love into your day! Nordstrom sells some amazing diffusers as well as Saks.

Well I’ll be sharing more later this week . My gift guides are available in my gift guide highlight. I hope you all enjoy happy shopping time.

Until next time….. xoxo Melissa

    Great newsletter! I’m definitely interested in what you have on health. I’ve been struggling with weight and menopause. I’m sure you aren’t at that age yet but I could really use some good eating habits and light exercise for starters. I do some walking and I do eat pretty good but I do occasionally get in a rut. Like I said, menopause is not my friend right now. The first of the year I’ll be getting into the Dr but I love some great recipes if you have the time to pass along. Thank you in advance. 🤍
