It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year!!🎄❤️ Can you believe Christmas is just 2 weeks away!? I seriously LOVE the holiday season and yes, I totally feel like a giddy kid on Christmas. Well, pretty much from Thanksgiving all the way till New Years! I hope you all share my love & adoration for this beautiful time of year.
God has blessed me with so much this year and I couldn't be more thankful for all the GOOD I have in my life! Unwavering gratitude for my health, my family, for Adam and, this year brought these 3 lovely ladies into my life! Anna from Peppered In Style, Alyssa from A Hint of Hazel and Erika of Tayloring Style have become my dearest friends! As I get older, I have become super selective about who I spend precious time with and I so look forward to get togethers with these girls -- lots of laughs and wine with these 3!!
So! It was only natural that the 4 of us get together for a fun holiday shoot! We teamed up with GAP & Kendra Scott from South Park Mall to put together these fun & festive holiday looks for you, our amazing readers! Due to schedules, we initially (tried) to pick out outfits separately - I was set on this buffalo plaid ruffle shirt - and once we all got together on the morning of our shoot, the whole red, black, white, plaid theme came together!
We thought it would be fun to do a little Holiday Q&A with you guys to get to know us a little better! We hope you and enjoy and please share
Favorite Holiday Tradition? Ever since my sister & I were younger, our parents have always given us PJs on Christmas eve. My favorite thing is we still do this on Christmas Eve and it has grown as my sister and brother-in-law have continued to do this with my niece and nephew. I can't wait to do the same with my family one day!
Favorite Christmas Movie(s)? Such a hard one! My top 3 are Home Alone (tie between 1 & 2), The Holiday, and Christmas Vacation.
Favorite Christmas Song(s)? Any by Trans Siberian Orchestra, duh. All I Want for Christmas is You (#basic) & O Holy Night by Mariah Carey, Charlie Brown Christmas jams, Happy XMas by John Lennon.
Favorite Holiday Tradition? Our holidays vary slightly with each year but we always make some Dominican foods that are traditional during the holidays. I’ve enjoyed the Elf on the Shelf for the past few years but my favorite part is watching the kids open their presents on Christmas morning.
Favorite Christmas Movie(s)? National Lampoons Christmas Vacation hands down. I’ve watch it every year since it came out.
Favorite Christmas Song(s)? I love most Christmas songs but Latin Christmas songs make my holidays feel more like Christmas to me.

Favorite Holiday Tradition? We are all about Christmas Eve in my family. My whole life, my parents have always gone all out for Christmas Eve…beautiful sit down dinner, all the homemade Christmas cookies you can imagine, as I’ve gotten older Midnight Mass has moved to earlier in the day, we open all our gifts on Christmas Eve and the evening goes on for hours on end (with wine, lots of wine) and I wouldn’t change it for the world. #FamilyIsEverything
Favorite Christmas Movie(s)? I can’t pick just one!! Home Alone, The Holiday, The Grinch (with Jim Carrey) Pretty sure I’ve watched each of these a million times!
Favorite Christmas Song(s)? I adore Christmas Songs and start listening to them way too early in the season! Lol If I had to choose just 3, these would be my absolute favorites: Last Christmas by George Michael. Happy Xmas by John Lennon. They Prayer by Celine Dion & Andrea Bocelli.
