Black Friday Outfit Planning with Shein

Ok, ok – I know its not even Thanksgiving yet, and while I’m all about the Turkey on Thanksgiving, I’m REALLY all about the shopping on Black Friday!

I know, I know, I know – it’s madness out there. But I am one of those people that loves it! I love the energy, I love walking out of the stores with bags and bags and bags. I love getting 95% of my Christmas shopping done in one day. I love the amazing deals. I love gifting. I love picking up a thing or two for myself along the way. And I love the special day I spend with my mom every year. It’s crazy, a little hectic, totally exhausting but its

Black Friday is our thing.

And now that we have littles to shop for this holiday season – it’s even more fun to get in the spirit!

With all the shopping excited over the next few days I thought it would be fun to put together a fun little Black Friday look that you could totally find me in while getting my shop on.

This sweatshirt is my new favorite thing.

It’s under $25 – SO comfortable and I am obsessed with the color blocking and embroidered detail.

It’s such an easy piece to wear while out and about this weekend – stay cozy and look cute at the same time.

I loved pairing this sweatshirt over some relaxed boyfriend jeans with a leather jacket {similar} on top for additional warmth. Throw on some cute earrings and comfortable booties and you are good to go.

Seriously – check out that detail!

I love a good piece in my closet, like this sweatshirt, that I can throw on and enjoy a day out with my mom getting our holiday shopping on or just spend the day being cute and comfortable with my kids. I don’t take too much time getting dressed in the morning, but I am always happy when I have pieces in my closet that can allow me to look nice no matter what the day brings!

This sweatshirt is one of those things!

If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you might know that I’ve been working with my friends at for a while!

I had to share about their Black Friday weekend sales going on, because I love their stuff!

Use code LIS10 for $10 off orders $79+ / LIS15 for $15 off orders $105+ / LIS30 for $30 off orders $200+

Happy {almost} Turkey Day!

Holiday Style with Boscovs

I’ve got lots of style and deals to share with you this week! It’s the most wonderful time of the year to score some awesome prices on pieces you’ve been eyeing up! I do a ton of shopping for myself and the boys this week every year because it’s the best time to shop.

And we all know how much I love to shop.

Today I’m excited to share with you some fantastic pieces my friends at Boscov’s sent me – all packed up in a fun little holiday box. I’m part of their Holiday Style Team and you guys, they sent me SO.MUCH.STUFF.

I couldn’t even take photos of it all, it was so much! But I will share it with you today, including a few of my favorites, styling ideas and all about the Black Friday specials {which have already started online!}

I grew up doing lots of Holiday shopping at Boscvo’s every year – my grandma lived in the Scranton area of Pennsylvania and every year when we would do Thanksgiving at her house, we would all pack up in the car on Black Friday and do some serious holiday shopping at the Steamtown Mall! It’s an awesome store and if you aren’t in an area where there is an actual location, be sure to check out their online selection! Tons of great style at awesome prices!


Now, back to my picks:

// vest

This Calvin Klein vest comes in the cutest metallic rose gold {which they are calling Fig online}. It’s really really pretty in person – absolutely a perfect choice for me. {Thanks to whoever packed up this surprise box – totally my style!} It’s warm, comfortable and I am just obsessed with the color. Comes in a gold option as well, but this color is on point!

Seriously, how cute is this vest?!


// dress 

Next up – this dress. Ummmm….Holiday Perfection.

And again – totally my style and exactly my size – the stylist who put this box together for me knocked it out of the park. I am obsessed with the look of this dress. Love the lace, keyhole detail, the color is amazing and its a perfect fit.

This is such a great dress for Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day – not to mention any and all holiday parties between now and then! Oh – New Years too! It’s flattering and comfortable too!



// sweater

I love a good sweater, like this one. The Burgundy color is fabulous for the season and the cable detailing mixed stitch on the sweater going across the body is really different – I like it! It has a cozy cowl neck is cozy and I love how its a little longer, but not bulky!


// tunic 

Next up is this tweed bouncle jacket which was unexpectedly adorable! I couldn’t find this exact piece online, but linked to the brand incase it comes back in stock. It’s really cute and an easy piece to wear and be instantly ready to go! It has cute pocket details, a hood and rolled cuffs on the sleeves. More of a early fall, spring piece as its not as warm as everything else I got to try, but still super cute!

It’s loose and structured at the same time, which I love – and it’s an awesome length for good bum coverage! Ha!


Other items I was able to try out include:

Calvin Klein Velvet Stretch Leggings – perfect for holiday events!

Cuddl Duds Leggings – these are so stinkin’ soft.

Cuddl Duds Fleece Vest – love the olive green color so much!

Cuddl Duds Turtleneck – can’t wait to wear to the Thanksgiving parade when its freezing out this week!


Thanks so much to my friends for all the great clothes! I can’t wait to wear them out and about this season!

Are you a Boscovs shopper too?

Ready, Set, It’s Thanksgiving! – my Turkey Day BabbleBox

Thanksgiving is THIS WEEK, and I couldn’t be more excited! It’s one of my favorite days of the year – we hit up the Thanksgiving Parade in Philadelphia, enjoy some quality family time and then head off to visit with family and eat all.the.turkey.


This year I’m even more excited about Turkey Day because my friend at BabbleBoxx hooked me up with a box full of treats to make the holiday next week even more special {including a little something for Jackson too!}


Product Details: Salted Caramel Harvest Bouquet with Orange Swizzle Berries /  Clean CocktailsSipp Sparkling Organic Drink / Solid Gold Dog Treats / Petlanthrophy Card

First let’s chat about this gorgeous Salted Caramel Harvest Bouquet with Orange Swizzle Berries -Seriously, how cute is this!? Talk about the most perfect centerpiece for Thanksgiving! I love the ceramic pumpkin on the bottom and all the yummy treats on top {with kale as a base – ha!}

We received this the other day to try out for review on this post and let me just say it didn’t last long – my boys {and I – oops} destroyed it. My husband got home that evening and there wasn’t much left for him – but we couldn’t let it go to waste! It’s an awesome last minute gift option wherever you are enjoying Thanksgiving this year – you can order now through Wednesday to get one in the mail before turkey day!

This bouquet features:  Salted caramel apple wedges, Chocolate dipped strawberries with festive orange Swizzle®, Playful pineapple leaves, Chocolate covered pineapple “apple”, Additional grapes, strawberries, cantaloupe and a keepsake pumpkin container that can be used again.

Proof of Graham doing some serious damage to the Edible Arrangement.

Now – what’s Thanksgiving without a fun little adult beverage? I am totally inspired to create something fun, seasonal and delicious for our turkey day after reading Clean Cocktails – Righteous Recipes for the Modern Mixologist. This book focuses on a clean-living mindset and the recipes use low-calorie spirits, fresh juices, clean sweeteners like honey and maple syrup, and anti-inflammatory spices. It’s a great gift for your cocktail loving friend, not to mention many of the recipes offer pitcher-sized variations perfect for holiday entertaining and feature innovative mixers like kombucha and iced tea. I’m defiantly going to make a fun Thanksgiving cocktail from this book this year – Yum!

Speaking of cocktails – I had the opportunity to try out the new  Sipp Sparkling Organic Drink as part of this Babbleboxx and it was so.delicious. Did I have it by itself or as part of a mixed drink as research for this post? I’ll never tell.

Ok I will – it’s delicious both ways!

I had the mojito berry and it was on.point. So yummy – I love a sparkling drink in general and this was a great flavor combination – Sipp comes in 5 other flavors and I definitely want to try another one! This a great mixer that can be used to create a fun cocktail or chilled and even enjoyed as-is with your Thanksgiving meal – the yummy blended fruits, herbs and agave into a lightly sweetened sparkling beverage makes it an easy sip!

Next up – something for my little dog too! Jackson got a treat in this Babbleboxx that he was VERY excited about! It’s nice to get a little something special for your furry friend during the holidays.  Solid Gold Dog Treats combine turkey, sweet potatoes and cinnamon to deliver a texture, aroma and taste that are a nutrient-dense reward for dogs of all sizes.

Seriously, Jackson couldn’t get enough! Use this link to get a discount for your dog on this yummy grain free treats {and they have something special for your feline friend too!}

Along with the yummy treats for Jackson, I was also given a Petlanthrophy Card – which bring needed care, lifesaving and smiles to beautiful local homeless cats, kittens, puppies and dogs in need. With a Petlanthropy Donation Gift Card, recipients can find animal shelters and projects they care about on and apply the value of their gift card to any local animal shelter project or donation page. It’s a nice little way to give back for sure – The boys and I are going to select a local animal shelter to donate to when the project opens up on December 1st! But you can stock up on gift cards now!

Thanks to my friends at BabbleBoxx for all the treats!

My Latest Stitch Fix + BONUS! Waived Stying Fee for the Holidays

It’s been a minute since I’ve shared a Stitch Fix with you, but I had one scheduled this week that I’m excited to share with you. It couldn’t have come at a more perfect time because I’m even more excited about the fact that my friends at Stitch Fix have a special treat for my fabulous readers! Starting today and until the end of November, you’ll be able to try Stitch Fix for the first time with a waived styling fee! So basically you can try it out if you haven’t before FO’ FREE!


Use this link to have your fee waived and try out Stitch Fix {it’s awesome} with no risk! Go ahead and go for a little holiday wardrobe refresh – you totally deserve it!

Ok – now back to my latest Fix. I didn’t ask for anything specific this time, just casual, easy pieces for my life as a stay at home mom {who also works from home – ha!} I enjoyed that there was a Burgundy color story in the 5 pieces I was sent. It’s nice that they all sort of flow and look nice together instantly when you pull them out of the box.

I love that little extra touch, not to mention I’m a big fan of Burgundy – especially this time of year!

Ok – now for the reveal! And don’t forget -> If you want to try Stitch Fix out for yourself, please use my referral link to sign up AND check out my Stitch Fix page to get caught up on all my previous Fixes! Message me with any questions you might have!


Le Lisa Alante Woven Back Knit Top

First up is this back knit top. I love that it’s long sleeve and I love that its floral . The mixed material is really fun, I am loving loose tops with skinny jeans and boots this time of year, so I’m into this one. The front is plain black v neck, you can’t even see the print, so its a nice little surprise when it pops out!


Le Lis Frederica Pom Trim Kimono

Here you can see the black front of the first top! This I wouldn’t wear together in real life, because the floral would pop through the kimono in the back, but I would definitely wear it with another solid black top. The kimono is really soft and I love the cute little tassel details. It’s a little out of season for me since it’s super lightweight, but still could be a cute thing to have and grab in the closet – since its easy to layer! What do you think?


Pixley Kaity Open Cardigan

Next up – this cardigan! I was a little disappointed when I first took this out of the box, because in previous fixes I’ve gotten very similar sweaters – almost the same silhouette, but they were never my style. But after wearing this for photos and seeing it in the pictures, I am sort of digging the winter off-white situation. It’ sort of ski bunny chic – and I’m into that!


Jolie Vivie Knit Dress

Next up – this dress! I’m into the color, very into the pockets, just not sure about it being sleeveless and the fact that the fabric is super thin. Could be cute with a cozy sweater – like the one before this.


Good Hyouman Emy Fleece Do What You Love Graphic Knit Top

The name of the top pretty much hits the nail on the head – it’s a lightweight fleece hoodie with the words – Do what you love and do it often” It’s a cute little message and it’s super cozy, but hooded sweatshirts are no longer my thing.


Now it’s the fun part – deciding what to keep! As always, I love your thoughts and opinions – would love to know your favorite piece {or two} from this Fix! Take the poll and let me know!

Christmas at Hershey 2017 : our visit to Hersheypark Christmas Candylane + Hershey Sweet Lights

Last Friday the boys + I {along with my mom} were treated to a special day at Hersheypark! It was the opening of their Christmas at Hershey: Christmas Candyland season and we were invited to check it out.

After Hersheypark in the Dark + our trip to try out BBLz™ and my Sweet Welcome weekend – we are really getting spoiled with all this Hershey love – but I don’t mind {And the boys don’t either!} It has quickly become their happy place, which I seriously love. I remember going to Hershey, PA for all the fun when I was little and I want the boys to have that too – especially because we are so close living in Philadelphia!

Ok – back to Christmas at Hershey! This was our first time visiting Hersheypark for the Christmas fun, so I was very excited to check it out. As always, they did a tremendous job with decorating, so many little details on point and after our trip I am totally in the holiday spirit. Christmas Candyland at Hersheypark features a beautiful Noel light show which can be seen throughout the park – be sure to check that out when you visit – it’s timed to music and really well done. We also got to see Rudolph’s Skating Pond – which I was very surprised to see inside Hersheypark, but such a nice touch for holiday fun. The boys are too little for that, but that didn’t stop them from wanting to skate – maybe next year!

One of my favorite parts of Christmas at Hershey was getting to see Santa’s Reindeer Stables! We got to see Santa’s 9 reindeer live, which was a real treat. Check out the video for more on that – super cool! Aside from that you can also take part in a cookie workshop, enjoy a choral show and of course visit with Santa himself!

Also – Hot Chocolate, because it’s the best in Hersheypark! Yum!

Before going into Hersheypark we hit up Chocolate World to go on the Chocolate Ride, because it’s everyone’s favorite – and then after a few hours in the park, we made our way over to see Hershey Sweet Lights. This is a winter wonderland you get to drive through in you car – which was nice because it was so cold out that day. It was 2 miles and almost 600 illuminated, animated displays – they did a beautiful job – absolutely breathtaking. I wasn’t sure how into it the boys would be, but they LOVED IT. Especially at the end it was a whole section on fairy tales – the boys loved seeing their favorites!

I hope you will check out my video that I put together of our day at Hershey – you can definitely see how much fun we had! Let me know what you think and if you are going to be hitting up Hershey, PA this holiday season!

Here are a few of my favorite snaps of the day – Thanks again for a great day Hershey! We can’t wait to come back again soon!

Style Favorite: Embroidered Top with Coin Detail – under $20

Two things.

It officially feels like Fall – YAY!

And Thanksgiving is NEXT WEEK – Whhhaaat?

It’s so crazy how I look forward to this time of year so much and then when its finally here, it is flying by at warp speed. We have so many fun holiday things planned for the kids, I’ve already started going a little crazy with my shopping and I am just so excited for this Christmas season with the boys!

outfit details:  embroidered cuff coin blouse / distressed denim / laser cut booties

But aside from being pumped for the holidays, I’m even more pumped for cooler {but not too cool} temperatures – not to mention dressing for it!

Along with the weather that is now officially feeling like the season we are in – I had to share with you my new way of life, after two pregnancies and chasing around two boys all day. I’m always HOT! Seriously, always! Even when I’m cold – I throw on a sweater and soon after, sweating. Any other mamas have this issue?

So I’m not longer into the chunky sweater thing. I’m more into easy layers, pieces that flow and have little more movement to them. Like this top – it has a nice flow to it, a piece you can easily throw on over a tank or another top if you want a little bit more warmth.

The embroidered detail, along with the coin is totally boho, which is my current favorite style of the moment. It comes in 3 other colors, but I am loving the blue. This top is really cool because you can attach it so its closed or leave it open for a different, more relaxed look – another reason why I think it would be so cute over a longer sleeved top on a cooler day.

This top has options, which is what I look for whenever I buy anything! Not to mention the variety of colors in the embroidery detail! All the heart eyes for this top!

It’s originally only $21 – which is a STEAL – but there are tons of promo codes that you can use to get it WAY under $21! Message me if you have any questions about it!
