Happy Holidays Lovelies! I have been admittedly absent over the past few weeks … I could bore you with the details, but instead I’ll excuse it to multiple travels and a bestie visiting me here in the North… Despite this, I’ve been stockpiling blog posts in the back of my mind, so without further adieu, let’s “get back together,” I’ve missed you. It’s that time of year, and you’re thinking about what to buy for your best friends, your mom and your {Read More}
