I’m always looking to simplify and reduce clutter in my life. Christmas is no exception. While I love adding a few festive touches to the house, I like to keep it minimal. With the exception of our tree decorations and the Advent calendar, all my other decorations this year are natural. When the holiday season is over, I won’t have much to pack up and put away. I’ll be able to just dump the dried branches and flowers in the compost pile! Right now I am loving this simple little centerpiece I pulled together from grocery store roses, backyard fir twigs and a vintage milk glass planter. Anyone else going super simple with the decorating this year? 🌲⭐️

I’m snuggling up with this favorite little book of mine today. I’ve read it every December for the last few years and it always gives me the tips I need to keep a simple, peaceful (and chic) mindset during the holidays. Thank you @fionaferrisnz for this gem of a book. Do you have a favourite Christmas book?

I’m working away on a new book! Here’s a sneak peak of some of the cover artwork. Can you guess the topic I’ll be exploring? Obviously veggies are an important part of it!
These sweet little paintings are absolutely dreamy, don’t you agree? Thank you again to the incredibly talented @flourishellis for capturing my vison so perfectly.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

Like many people, I started my Christmas shopping early this year. Crowded stores and malls are places I’m trying to avoid these days. I’m really scaling back on the number of gifts this year, narrowing my focus on choosing meaningful, carefully selected items.
If you are looking for a thoughtful gift for a special woman in your life, I’d like to recommend one of my books! They cover topics that would be of interest to anyone in life – fitness, homelife, health, finances, food, fashion, beauty, mindset….and so much more! They were written from the heart and from the perspective of an average, everyday woman (me!). They are both available on Amazon and my experience has been that the shipping and turnaround time is very fast. (Since they are self-published titles they are printed on demand.)
Although the holiday season is going to look different this year, I’m still expecting it to be lovely and warm. Stay safe everyone!

Here is the belt I chose. It’s by Sézane, but I originally spotted it on a photo of Kate Middleton. It’s called the “Artemis Belt”. It’s very versatile as it pairs well with denim, but can also be cinched around the waist (which is how The Duchess styled it). I snagged this second-hand on the site Vide Dressing! I’m using this “waiting game” approach for a couple of items on my winter wish list. Someone’s else’s cast off is your next treasure!
