Decorate Your Home For Thanksgiving & Earn While Doing It

This post is in partnership with Walmart & Capital One. All opinions are 100% my own. 
Hello there, Loves!
Can you believe it? Thanksgiving is only tomorrow. I feel like it snuck up on me so fast and with that I decided to act fast as well. I love the holidays and everything about Fall. I was not going to let Thanksgiving come and go without decorating my home. I knew the one place I could look to was Walmart.com for a few new pieces to add the feels of the holiday in my home. What's even better is that if you are a Capital One® Walmart Rewards™ Card holder not only do you earn 5% back on Walmart.com, the Walmart App, and Grocery Pickup and Delivery, but also 2% back in store, and 1% back anywhere Mastercard is accepted. It doesn't hurt that there are no annual fees too. 

I quickly hopped on Walmart.com and selected a few pieces that I knew would make my home ready for Thanksgiving. I also love the amazing benefit of next day delivery that Walmart.com offers on so many of their products. My order came the next day and I was able to decorate my home that same evening. 
 Below is what my couch looked like BEFORE.
Here's what it looked like AFTER. 
I added this beautiful plush Better Homes & Gardens Sherpa Throw Blanket that couldn't be more perfect for Thanksgiving. It comes in about 14 other colors so you'll definitely find your style. It's so soft and cozy and perfect for snuggles after the feast. I also added these Mainstays Decorative Throw Pillows on the other end of my couch and I love how they seamlessly tie into my current decor theme. They are also the perfect colors for Thanksgiving pillow decor as you can easily mix-and-match them with other decor items for years to come. Another great thing about using the Capital One® Walmart Rewards™ Card is that you can cover your purchase after the fact by redeeming points on Walmart.com.
I also bought this Thanksgiving Silver Farm Pumpkin Decoration, it says Blessed on one side and Happy Thanksgiving in small writing on the other. I put it right in the breakfast nook in my kitchen. I loved how it came out and added some texture to the space.
Lastly, I had to decorate my dining room table because this where we will eat and gather on Thanksgiving Day. This is what my table looked like BEFORE.
This is what it looks like AFTER. Ah I loved decorating this space. I bought two sets of these beautiful Mainstays Mercury Glass Hurricane and this gorgeous Pumpkin Frame Floral Tabletop Decoration. They brought the table alive with beautiful holiday colors. I couldn't be happier.
It's safe to say, I am ready for Thanksgiving and for our guests to come. The only thing I have left to do is get my grocery to cook a few of my favorite recipes and am not worried because that will be seamless with Walmart.com Grocery Pickup. Guys, don't wait any longer, Thanksgiving is just a few days around the corner. Walmart.com is your best option and will get you and your home ready for the holidays. Don't forget to use your Capital One® Walmart Rewards™ Card and if you don't have it, apply for it asap to get all the benefits I mentioned before along with being able to redeem your rewards for statement credits, gift cards, or travel. There are so many amazing benefits plus Walmart has almost everything to cover our needs. 

Happy Thanksgiving



Our Baby Shower

Last month we celebrated our little girl in an intimate and cozy baby shower with some of our family and closest friends. To tell you the truth, I initially didn’t want to have a baby shower. It's been a long and busy year for me planning a destination wedding, working nonstop, travels etc. The last thing I wanted to do was plan another event ha! But our friends and family kept asking about a shower and then I realized I would have probably regretted not doing a shower later on. 
So here we are. 
The goal was to keep it small at 30 people, simple chic girly decor and, an easy no fuss morning. We did a brunch and hosted it at one of our favorite restaurant in Los Angeles in their private dining area. The restaurant private space was a good idea because all we needed to do was add a bit of decor, show up, do our thing and then leave.   
It was amazing. We were literally showered with so much love, well wishes, good energy, and that made everything worth it. We ate, chatted with our guests, played games, and mingled in love. Our baby girl has no idea how much love and support she already has and that really makes us so happy. I posted a video on my Instagram account, you can see it here. It was a lovely day and I couldn’t feel more blessed, loved and appreciated. Keep scrolling below to see some of the photos. 
Some of my blogger friends who came to shower us with love. I'm linking their Instagram accounts below so you can check each of them out.

I decided to keep photos of my other family and friends offline because not everyone wants to be plastered all over the internet. Hehe! However, they were there in all the uplifting and loving sprits I could ever dream of and I'm extremely thankful. 
The balloon wall was done by Tat & Co and the florals were done by my lovely friends Vanessa & Art . It was beautiful. 
I hope you enjoyed this post.



aden + anais® Harry Potter™ Limited Edition Collection Makes The Best Baby Shower Gift

This post is in partnership with aden + anais. All opinions are 100% my own. 
As a first time mom-to-be I really had a lot to learn and my oh my I have brought my brain back to college days over the last few months. I've dived into being as informed as I can in this new space of becoming a parent researching products and practices. I recently had my baby shower and it was magical to say the least. Our registry had items that I had fully researched and I find will be practical for our baby, my husband and our overall lifestyle. A few of the the items that were must haves on our registry were from Aden + Anais®. When I found out that they were launching a Harry Potter
 Limited Edition Collection, I knew I had to have it. Plus I was definitely going to gift it to one of my other girlfriend who is also expecting a baby. I knew it would make the perfect baby shower gift. The collection pieces are so soft and beautiful.
Let's get into the pieces I got for my dear friend shall we?
First up is this Harry Potter™ Limited Edition Collection light sleeping bag. How cute is the design? It 100% cotton muslin light sleeping bag that makes for a cozy night's rest. These are such great options for baby because you don't have to worry about loose blankets during sleep time. 
Ah this design is probably my favorite in the entire collection, Harry Potter™ classic burpy bibs. Can you blame me? This is also 100% cotton muslin burpy bib and it doubles as an absorbent burping cloth. It's an amazing design that snaps at the back of baby and also slips over shoulder for a non-slip burp cloth. I have to mention again, it's so soft. 
Lastly, I got these Harry Potter™ Limited Edition Collection swaddles in a 3-pack. It also comes as a single swaddle too. But with these cute prints, a 3-pack makes a much better gifting option in my option :). I love they they are versatile in that they can be used as a stroller cover, nursing cover, burp cloth, tummy blanket...It's perfect for playtime, bedtime or mealtime. I love gifting items that are useful and practical and not to mention oh so cute. 
Are you thinking about baby shower gifting anyone in your life? I highly recommend the aden + anais® Harry Potter Limited Collection. The collection also includes a dream blanket and a classic oversized blanket. It doesn't have to be a shower only gift as well. The holidays is coming up and I promise any parent would be so happy and thankful for any of the items form this collection.


Meet The Conair Cordless Auto Curler You Must Try

This post is in partnership with Conair & Shopstyle. All opinions are 100% my own.
  Hey Loves!

I'm so excited to share this post with you guys. I haven't done a hair beauty post in a while. Now, meet the newest breakthrough device from Conair -- the  UNBOUND Cordless Auto Curler I have been in love with this new device for the past few weeks. I am not usually one to curl my hair often because I get bored just standing there and it takes too long. Well, this Conair UNBOUND Cordless Auto Curler has changed my life and has taken all the work out of curling my hair! 

It’s a cordless, rechargeable device that makes getting long-lasting beautiful curls and waves more convenient than ever. It's super easy to use and I love that it is travel friendly -- because it’s cordless you can use it on-the-go without being plugged into a wall (or the hassle of adapters). I won't be taking another trip without it, that's for sure. Let's get into how to use it and how I created these beautiful curls in my hair. 
One it’s fully charged, you’ll get about 1 hour of cordless curling time. I fully curled my hair in about 15 mins. It has three control buttons which helps to set the heat temperature, curling direction (left, right, mixed).
  Step one: Prepare about 1/2-1 inch section of your hair.
Step 2: Choose your heat setting and select your curl direction. Press and hold the start button to begin curling. The cool thing is that the chamber will automatically wrap the hair around the inner barrel based on the curl direction you selected. So easy!  It also has a ceramic easy-glide coated surface, so my hair easily glides over the curl chamber. Hold it until the device beeps to indicate that you're all done. 
Step 3: Release the button and pull the auto curler down to reveal your beautiful curls. It’s like a pro stylist is just sitting in your hands without any of the effort!
 How simple and easy was that? I am so in love with this curler and I cannot get over it. I'm pretty sure you will be seeing me with more curls moving forward. I was thinking the other day, this is such a great tool for me especially since I am becoming a mom pretty soon. It will save time and keep me fabulous. Another thing I like is how quiet it is!, It barely has a low sound to indicate it is in use. I can see myself using this to curl my hair on the go and literally anywhere when I need a touch up in a pinch... in the car, at the gym, in a public bathroom... Ha!

I'm also thinking about gifting it to a few of my favorite gals this holiday. I love gifting my friends and family practical gifts that I know will change their lives. 
I hope you enjoyed this post and if you're looking for a hair curler to change your life, this is it
