You can't go wrong giving a beautiful cheese board or champagne flute; you really can't have too many!
We are all about the animals in this house! If John allowed it, we would have five poodles running around. Maybe one day! Happy to bring you this fun and entertaining gift-giving guide for all the pet lovers on your Christmas list! A lot of fun and unique ideas for that crazy cat or dog loving person in your life.

Entertaining doesn't need to be hard; it also doesn't need to cost you an arm and a leg! Hosting our friends and family during the holiday season is a highlight of our year. John and I love opening our hearts and home to welcome our loved ones over a tasty meal and give thanks for another beautiful year behind us.
I will never forget my first snowfall after moving to Minneapolis. That was eight years ago, and man, have things changed and so has my wardrobe. A series of skating across the sidewalk in heels to physically using my elbow to wipe the 5 inches of accumulation off my car, wasn't all that glamorous as you can probably picture it.
We love celebrating Halloween! We always have a busy neighborhood the night of trick or treating, and this year I decided to make a special Sangria for all the adults to enjoy! The best part of this tasty treat is the rose. I happen to love Miraval Provence and thought this would be the perfect addition to this festive and delicious drink recipe.
Hoping to give your wardrobe a lift this season? Look no further than Bloomingdales for a fresh fun update. By incorporating a few signature pieces that are both a touch contemporary yet offer classic style, your closet will feel brand new! I am thrilled to be partnering with Bloomies to bring awareness to a new clothing line you don't want to miss, and these styles are 100% exclusively theirs.
Plaid, Plaid, Plaid! I know you all love it and so do I! Now that the temperatures have finally started dropping it really feels like fall is here to stay. This plaid dress is quite possibly the best addition to my wardrobe, and so far the first plaid item I have added to the collection this season.
What is the only color you need in your wardrobe this fall? Great question! With the gang at Pantone Color Institute calling the shots each season, it is no surprise when celebrities come barreling down the red carpet in matching hues. Coincidence? I think not! Who are the big guns this season? Tawny Port, Grenadine, Ballet Slipper, Butterum, Navy Peony, Neutral Gray, Shaded Spruce, Golden Lime, Marina, and Autumn Maple.
When I first learned of the opportunity to cruise through Northern Europe and Russia with Princess Cruises, I didn't exactly know how to feel. Excited, nervous, and intrigued all come back to mind. I have been very fortunate to experience travel through Central Europe as a young adult. Scandinavia is definitely, a big part of the world I was missing.
I love blogging. When I first launched the blog, I was beyond shy about it. I didn't have a clue what I was doing. Not to mention I had no idea where I stood regarding social media. What was I doing? Two years later, and I still scratch my head some days. But I love it, and I'm here to stay. I'm answering a few of the most asked questions on C+M. So here goes nothing.
