I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas with family and friends! We were fortunate enough to spend time with the people that mean the most to us. After many potlucks, dinners, secret santa exchanges, I am looking forward to NYE! We're going to Las Vegas with my cousins and I'm super excited to stuff my face with buffets and hopefully catch a show, plus fireworks!

Wishing everyone love and an amazing New Years! <3

Until next year, (gasp!)

Full Scarf & Layered Maroon Dress

 
 

One of my go to winter accessories are big full scarves, I got this one from ZARA a few years ago and love how soft and warm it keeps me! This season they have a new collection of prints and textures that I am loving. And let's talk about this dress, I love the casual loose fit and the layered ruffle detail at the bottom. I just got this dress from their website and was super sad to find that it is already sold out. I did however link a similar one., wishing everyone a Happy Holidays!

Cozy Winter Cape

 

If this pairing doesn't scream winter, I don't know what does! I love clothing that are comfortable and this cape is everything -it's so warm and cozy! I wore this the other day when the other half and I went house shopping, we haven't been able to snatch a house yet, but there is one that we have our eye on. ;) Anyways, I can't believe it is almost Christmas!

Is anyone excited for Star Wars? We already got tickets to watch the movie on opening day tomorrow! So excited!!

Wynwood Walls in Miami

  
 

How amazing are the Wynwood Walls of Miami?! We discovered this from the freeway when driving to Miami Beach and had to stop to spend more time here. We took photos and ended up loosing track of time because there were so many amazing graffitied walls. They were even in the middle of working on a Star Wars themed one! (hehe)

 

There were tons of people exploring around, having a good time, and taking photos. Next time you're in Miami, this is a must visit! :)

Holiday Cheer with Hornitos

This post is sponsored by Hornitos



Christmas is a little over two weeks away! I've tried something new this year; I bought all of my gifts online and avoided the crazy Holiday shopping traffic and lines. So far it has worked out really nice! The only downfall is that when I order items online, they don't provide gift wrapping or boxes for free. So I also had to order some gift boxes, but I am not complaining, I'd rather buy a few boxes than wait in line for hours at the mall. Plus, I get an excuse to get super cute gift wrapping paper and ribbons! Oh so festive and fun!

In addition to Christmas shopping, we're all thinking about what food and drinks we're going to serve at the next get together with family and friends.  I've cooked up a really tasty and easy to make cocktail that incorporates Hornitos® Tequila Spiced Honey, I call it Kickin' Frosty Lemonade!

Everything you'll need:
A bottle of lemonade
3 fresh lemons
Hornitos® Tequila Spiced Honey
(seriously, that's it!)

Directions:
1. Pour 1/2 cup of lemonade in your glass
2. Then 1 ounce of Hornitos® Tequila Spiced Honey
3. Squeeze a wedge of lemon for extra flavor
4. Stir and top with ice!

Did I say it was easy, or did I say it was easy? ;) My family loved it when I made it for them this past weekend. With all of the craziness of the Holidays, I'm so grateful to know that if I need to quickly whip up a cocktail, I can do so with Hornitos® Tequila Spiced Honey and a couple of more ingredients! Enjoy and thanks for reading! <3

Happy Holidays,
Connie

Off The Shoulder Romper

Hey Guys! I just got back from a getaway with the other half, we went to Miami (for the first time) and then on a cruise to the Bahamas. We have been workaholics for the past few years and this was our first vacation alone in over 4 years! (yikes) I couldn't believe it either when I realized that, but it was such a nice vacation to get away from the cold rainy weather in the Bay Area and feel the warmth of Miami & Bahamas. I hope you like this look, it is super comfortable and can easily be transitioned from day to night by changing from sandals to heels!

Spice Up Thanksgiving


This post is sponsored by Hornitos.



I love Thanksgiving; to me it’s the official start of the holidays! Time to start thinking of what to get loved ones for Christmas gifts, time to catch up and spend quality time with family and friends, and time to start decorating for the holidays! But the one thing I’m really exciting about is being able to put Mochi’s red jingle-bell collar on him. It’s this super cute collar with big,gold bells all around, and whenever he runs around, you hear lots of jingling! It makes my heart warm and fuzzy. 

 Of course, amazing food comes along with the festive holiday events,and this year we’re starting Thanksgiving by doing a 10k in the morning to work up a big appetite for dinner(and maybe shopping).

I've made my fair share of salads, soups, and baked goods. So when I partnered with Hornitos for this Thanksgiving post, I knew immediately that I wanted to share an easy and super yummy chocolate cake recipe that integrates fresh fruits and Hornitos Black Barrel.

Recipe:
3/4 cup of dark chocolate chips (I used 60%)
3/4 cup of butter
4 eggs
1/2 cup of raw sugar
1 tablespoon of plain flour
2 tablespoons of Hornitos Black Barrel tequila, plus extra to top off a slice!
1 pack of raspberries
1 bottle of chocolate sauce

Instructions:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees
2. Grease a 9-inch round cake pan
3. Melt the butter and chocolate
4. Whip eggs into the melted chocolate one by one, then add sugar and flour
5. Pour cake batter into cake pan
6. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes
7. Let cool, drizzle with chocolate sauce, and sprinkle on the chocolate chips
8. Garnish with raspberries, drizzle with some Hornitos Black Barrel, and enjoy!

It's as easy as cake, and taste as yummy as it looks! I hope you guys enjoy this twist on chocolate cake, and I hope this inspires you to put a twist to your traditional Thanksgiving dishes!

With Love,
Connie
