Yesterday morning Sam and I decided to run off to Carmel for a quick end of the year getaway. We booked a room at Carmel Valley Ranch. It was our first visit but definitely not our last. The property is breathtaking. All of the rooms are well appointed with amenities like fireplaces, wrap around decks and outdoor bathtubs. Sam and I spent a quiet day lounging on our deck, ordering room service, and taking in the sleepy surroundings of Carmel. It was a nice break from the all the holiday hustle and bustle.

P.S. If you follow me on Instagram then you’ve already met my new puppy, Fiona. Sam surprised me with her on our 1 year wedding anniversary. I woke up and there she was waiting for me on the couch with a giant pink bow. I now have 3 dogs.  You can officially call me a crazy dog lady.

Last month Jared The Galleria of Jewelry invited me to one of their stores to experience first hand what the jeweler is all about. It was incredible how knowledgeable and friendly the entire staff was. After learning about the extensive range of brands, like Vera Wang LOVE and the beautiful Chosen collection of customizable engagement rings, carried at Jared locations, we were given free reign to play with all the beautiful pieces. I tried on everything from gold bangles to brilliant engagement rings. I ended up falling in love with a couple sets of sparkly studded earrings. I knew I wanted to layer them for a glam holiday look. I paired them with silver bracelets, slipped on a full skirt and danced the night away at a holiday soiree.

Check out Jared online or in stores and find yourself something beautiful.

We finally made up to the family ranch in Santa Cruz. Our week is filled with family dinners, play dates with our adorable nephews, last minute gift shopping, and over indulgence in homemade cookies we wake up to every morning.

I hope your week is filled with joy and laughter. Thank you for being a reader.  It is only because of you that I have been able to continue this blog for almost 8 years. I love running into you guys in real life, reading your comments and your emails. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

This pretty little jumpsuits arrived on my doorstep just in time for our trip up North. It’s the perfect addition to my holiday wardrobe. I love a good jumpsuit and this one has a touch of that 70’s vibe that I always gravitate to.

I have very little to say about this dress because it’s absolutely beautiful and I’m totally in love with it. I see it as the perfect dress for Christmas Eve. Sam and I split the holidays between our families. This year we’re spending Christmas in Santa Cruz with Sam’s family. I can’t wait to overdose on crab (a Christmas Eve tradition), play with my nephews, and indulge in homemade cookies.

P.S. If you’re wondering what those stickers on my wrist are, they’re Body Vibes from my skin guru.
