Hi, Everyone! I hope you all had the most wonderful Thanksgiving holiday, hopefully, spent with loved ones and friends! After the big day, our holiday weekend was pretty quiet, except for my family room on Saturday afternoon. My husband and younger son were glued to the Alabama vs. Auburn game. They are huge Alabama fans, and let’s just say that my son’s fiance and I left for the better part of it (because the screaming was about to crack all of my glassware!). It did not end well with their team! Speaking of Alabama, I was in Birmingham last week to visit one of my best buddies in the world. I want to introduce you to Deanna Pizitz, who just started a blog called, Well and Worthy Life who sparkles (like our jackets!). I wanted us to do photos together so that you could meet her!
I was with Deanna this past Spring, and she talked to me about starting a blog that would mostly deal with health and wellness. Deanna’s mom passed away this past year, and she has gone beyond the call of duty to take care of her stepfather who was diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia. Deanna moved him from Florida to Birmingham and found him a great facility to help him. I have never seen anyone take such good care of someone! She checks on him and visits him daily. She is getting a gold star in Heaven for sure! Deanna is also getting her Yoga teaching certificate and is one of the healthiest people I have ever known. I am so proud of her, as she did start her blog a few months ago to address health and wellness, but you can see she is a fashion lover as well! Her friendship with me has been one of my greatest gifts! We have been through a lot together over the years, and I truly love her like a little sister. She is one of the kindest people I know and how adorable is she?! Her blog posts are so honest and real, just like her. Deanna is one of the most genuine people I know, and she is so honest (almost to a fault). With that being said, please check out her blog HERE.
Deanna and I decided to focus on you guessed it, sparkles and shine for the month of December. Sequins are a big trend at the moment, but I think you have to be careful not to go overboard. We found the bomber jacket we are wearing and both decided to dress it way down for daytime. She chose to wear hers with a tank, velvet joggers, and sneaks. I am wearing mine with a striped tee, jeans, and velvet sneakers. I think this jacket is so much fun during the holiday season, and coming in at $59 is a big plus! I would also wear it with a black dress or with a black skirt and white tee. I think this velvet and sequin one is super cute too for the same price.
Did you all get some shopping done on Friday? You know today is Cyber Monday, and I am sharing a few of my picks below, but you can go back to my post on Black Friday to check out other mentions since most are participating in Cyber Monday. I hope you all have a great day! xx
