Holiday Gift Idea: Skinny Ties


With the holidays right around the corner, I've been brainstorming about gift ideas to get the other half, my dad, and friends! Year after year I've gotten things such as handy electronics, clothing, shoes, and so on..., but this year, I'm eyeing ties! Skinny Tie Madness makes stylish, high quality, and trendy ties for mens and pricing starts at as low as $9.99. So as you start to check those christmas gift boxes off, definitely check them out!

Off The Shoulder Romper

 
 

Shop This Look


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
