Wrapping up 2016- Favorite Blog Posts + 2016 Highlights!

  It's the final edge of 2016 before we jump into 2017, and all I can say is THANK GOODNESS. 2016 needs to END. IT'S GOT TO GO.

  Despite my evident hatred of the mess that was 2016, I did have quite a few blog posts that I absolutely adored, and while my stat lines tell me and you probably know which ones you liked best, I thought I'd take a moment to look back on the ones that were my favorites.

*Guys I got super nostalgic while looking through my old posts to gather my favorites and I definitely wasn't expecting that. Crazy to see what's happened in just a year.

A Quiet Moment in Georgetown

  Every time I go into Georgetown I remember why I love it so much. It's just so quaint. Definitely one of those cute little areas in town that remind you of some cute little throwback. That being said, M Street gets so busy during the day and between the traffic and the people and the narrow sidewalks, it doesn't really lend itself to taking great outfit photos. When we somehow found ourselves in this quiet little back alley, it seemed like kind of a hidden gem.

A Pop of Green at the National Archives

  Hello lovelies!  I'm coming to you all from Washington D.C. {can I get a round of applause for better photo backgrounds?}. After spending a day lounging around being lazy with family, we finally ventured out to the National Mall. The steps of the National Archive isn't quite the steps of the Met, but it still made for a pretty good photo op. Scroll through this post for the complete details of this OOTD!

Holiday Gift Guide 2016: 15 Mugs for Easy Gifting

  I'm back again with more gift-giving advice, and today we're focusing on mugs. Why, you ask? Mugs are a sneaky gift that makes it easy to put together cute gift baskets or groups to give to friends and family member!  Think about it:

  Mug + cozy socks + gourmet popcorn + movie {if you're gifting during the holidays, I recommend "The Holiday," such a cute film!} = the perfect gift for your friend or sister and also has all the supplies for her to have a cozy night in, or a fun girl's night!

  Mug + hot chocolate mix {or coffee or tea} + chocolate {or peppermint barks or candy canes} = cute and easy gift for really anyone on your list, or makes the perfect secret santa gift!

Holiday Gift Guide 2016: For Every Girl on Your List

  Yes, it really is that time of year again, and yes, I'm back to help you through all your gift-giving stress!  Apart from the overall holiday spirit, snow, and lights everywhere, my absolute favorite part of the holiday season is figuring out what to get everyone!

  While I'm someone who tends to put a lot of individual thought into everyone's gifts, sometimes there are a few friends or relatives that leave you absolutely lost when it comes to gifts. That's where this guide comes in!  All of these gifts are tried, tested, and true- meaning that myself or my lovely group of friends have given or received these gifts multiple times to positive response!  Still not convinced? I've included the "why" as to how these gifts made this guide next to the item link.  :)
