I fell for a few key serving pieces from JCPenney (this marble tray & these stoneware dishes) that make it easy for even this design-challenged girl to host in style. And the best part? I got it all for under $300.
Thank you to JCPenney & ShopStyle Collective for sponsoring this post. Zack and I will be married ten years (TEN!😳) this August. I was thinking about this fact recently when I was putting together a party spread for a family gathering over the holidays. Looking at our plates and bowls and serving platters and such...they're all at least ten years...
From my fave planner & the humidifier that helped my breathing, to the travel tray that's the key to road trips w/ kids & the laptop stand that saves my neck. These are the top Amazon finds I'd recommend (& buy again & again).
I was recently searching through my Amazon orders for this LoveHandle phone grip. I just upgraded my phone and cannot go without this specific handle that makes texting, taking pics (basically everything I do with my phone) so much easier. And while I was looking, I realized I had a bunch of Amazon favorites I wanted to share with...

Traditional Black Friday will come with the usual sales, but it'll be hit or miss. If there ARE Black Friday deals, think low inventory + hot ticket items that sell out quickly + a series of flash sale periods -- starting now -- as things pop in (& out) of stock.
There's no doubt that some serious shopping happens every November. Not only can we see it via our own analytics (we luv data), but based on the sheer number of Black Friday articles already published...retailers all over are gearing up. Even Nordstrom who, once upon a time, insisted on waiting until after Thanksgiving to pull out holiday decor, has published...

I did declutter two kitchen cabinets (yep…only two), half of one kid’s closet (let’s see….I only have four and a half more closets to go), and two nightstand...
