It’s My Birthday!

Today is not only my birthday but it’s my (womb mate) brothers birthday too! We’ve planned a dinner with friends & family then we will all go our separate ways. I’m so thankful to have the people in my life that’ve stuck around or came back into it.

My favorite post from last week is:

Bonnie from The Pin Junkie! Who doesn’t love Nutella?! Who doesn’t love hot chocolate?! So, I ask you who wouldn’t like Nutella hot chocolate. That’s right, I’m a little excited about it.

Christmas Wishlist: Shoes

I like shopping with Justfab.com. The shoes are stylish and they’re affordable, like right now you can get a pair for 50% off! I love it when they run their BOGO sale too. Justfab.com also has cute accessories and a line of party dresses.

These are my top 5 winter picks. I’ve actually snagged the Meribora pair for myself. It’s my birthday present to me!

I love the ribbon on the side.

Akron

These would be perfect with a little black dress.

JF Katrina

These come in 2 colors but both are equally as enticing.

Moritz

I felt like I needed these in my life, so I bought them in this style.

Danica

I’m a sucker for a wooden sole.

Meribora

I was not compensated for this post and all opinions are mine. I just wanted to share cute shoes and great deals with you guys.

Wrapping Up Christmas

I love seeing gifts wrapped under the tree. I can’t wrap so I’m more of a gift bag kinda girl, it’s sad & ugly when I try to wrap. I think this is where my present wrapping envy comes from. My family is really creative and there’s never 2 gifts wrapped exactly the same.

It’s sad that when I have kids I’m going to have to sweet talk their grandmother into wrapping all the gifts so I don’t get attacked by the little one & a gift bag.

I’ve found a few of my favorite wrappings. Not only are they fully function as wrapped gifts but they are also really pretty to look at. If your thinking of trying new wrapping ways this Christmas maybe you’d fancy one of these ideas. How do your gifts turn out wrapped? Is there a science to it all, I’m not good with science or math… So if that’s the case in doomed to gift bags for life.

How Naps Can Inspire Creativity

I was laying in bed after a 12 hour work day & I was thinking about words, which led me to think about blog posts. Then I started making sentences and leaking out important words, so I thought about it and I said “How ____ can inspire _____”. Then I simply filled in my blanks, right now I want a nap and I love creativity. Thus! Today’s post was born. “How Naps Inspire Creativity”, I like it! I also like the saying “Kill 2 birds with 1 stone” (I don’t condone this behavior. Killing birds with stones – well that’s just horrible. Plus, birds are really fast!) so if you hang around to read today’s post you might learn something.

The Facts About Naps
• Napping can make you more alert, reduce stress and improve cognitive functioning compared to working all day without rest.
• Naps can increase not only our health and well-being but our intelligence.
• Naps improve your working memory.
• Naps prevent burnout and reverses information overload.
• Napping improves your mood as well.
• Napping also saves you money. Your not spending it on 5 Hour Energy or Starbucks.

So it all seems to add up to me, naps are awesome! I found my facts here & here so I’m not just making these things up because I want naps to be productive. I’m not going to lie, on my days off I’ll catch a snooze or two.
