Our Holiday Cards

Every year I try to come up with a general theme for our holiday cards and this year's theme was all about celebrating everything the holiday season brings. I love the idea of combining both Kenny and my beliefs and celebrating everything that makes this season so special for us all. A Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad sort of thing. And I take my themes very seriously. You can ask Kenny who one year had to wear an ugly Happy Hanukkah sweater and a menorah hat for our cards (ha!) This year I kept it a bit more simple and ordered a yard sign with all the messages we wanted to relay and we used it as a prop for our family photo shoot in Riverside Park.

Needless to say, I'm thrilled with how these turned out! And Minted had just the right card for us. A "Happy Everything" card that showed off Ali's giant smile! What would I do if not for Minted?! Minted is my go-to destination for all my personalized stationary needs, from holiday cards to thank you notes and art. It is very hard to choose the perfect card design but I think these will bring a smile to the face of very many family members and friends who will be receiving it in the next few days.

Happy Everything to you all!

A LAGOS Holiday

As most of you already know from some of my previous posts and outfit shots I have been a long time fan of LAGOS. And needless to say, this holiday season's collection did not disappoint me in the very least. For the benefit of full disclosure, you won't usually find me sporting pearls but my Luna Pearl Double Strand bracelet was truly love at first sight. This holiday season will be the perfect time to pull out my more classic jewelry pieces -- i.e. my pearls -- to attend family gatherings, office parties and dinners and for some special occasions with my little family. I'm also looking forward to gifting two of these beauties to two very special women in my life, my mom and mother in law. I think they will be delighted to find a beautiful purple LAGOS box at their doorstep in a few weeks!  

And, of course, for myself, I couldn't keep it to just one LAGOS piece at a time. I paired my Luna Pearl bracelet with the Caviar Icon Gemstone bracelet since I love to stack these beauties. Some other options I love for the holidays? These gorgeous Infinity Drop earrings and the stunning Caviar Icon Caviar necklace. A girl can dream, right?

Bracelets: thanks to Lagos, here and here.

A Minted Holiday Giveaway

I absolutely love receiving holiday cards from friends and family. Pictures of smiling babies, kids and good friends always put a giant smile on my face and makes for a very cheerful refrigerator door. On that same note, I also love the process of picking out our own holiday cards, especially now that Ali takes front and center of them. This year I have partnered with Minted to talk about my favorite holiday card options and to give away to three lucky readers the chance to win their very own $100 gift certificates
