$24 Ugg Boot Dupes


I have both the $150 pair of classic cardy knit boots from Ugg and the Muk Luks Lilyana Faux Fur Lined boots that are on sale for only $24.

The verdict?

I love them both.

The Uggs are fabulous quality and I’ve owned them now for several years.

The Muk Luks are sherpa lined and feel so cozy.

The only downside to the Muk Luks in my opinion is that the shoe part feels very structured, almost like a cardboard structure, in places.  This is not enough of a downside to deter me from wearing these boots ALL the time.

Gift Guide for your Dad and Father-in-Law


Every Christmas I hear that men are the hardest people to shop for on your Christmas shopping list.  This year, I’m going to break it down and give y’all as many ideas as possible.

This is a gift guide for dads and father-in-law’s in general.  There is a specific reason behind each gift listed.

Each item on this gift guide has either mine or my husband’s stamp of approval. 🙂



Matt and I took genetic tests earlier this year and I loved learning more about our heritage.  If the dad in your life loves genealogy, then an ancestry genetic test is a great gift idea!

Almost every dad in my life loves to grill.  This meat thermometer is a unique present because it’s not only digital, but it connects to your iPhone.  So if they also love technology, this thermometer is a double win.

If they love tailgating or camping, this grill is a fabulous idea.

Matt la la loves this Ember mug so much that I also bought him the travel mug.  The Ember travel mug is currently on sale for 50% off!  This is honestly a great gift for any coffee lover on your holiday list!

Target Christmas Toy Sale

Target Circle app is currently offering 25% off any one purchased toy.  This is the perfect time to buy that big toy you’ve been eying from your Christmas shopping list!

I used my coupon to buy Kenny this LOL bounce house, which saved me $75!

If you don’t have the Target Circle App, stop what you’re doing and download it right now.  It saves me money every single time I shop there.  And y’all know how much I love to save money, lol.

11 Unique Christmas Gifts Your Mom Will Love!


I’m tackling one of the most difficult people in your life to shop for first, your mama!!

This year I’m starting early because of Covid.  Holiday shopping looks different this year as I’m sure the holidays in general will.  Instead of the normal Christmas shopping craziness at the malls, most shopping will need to be online.

Here are some creative ideas for the mamas in your life!





My name necklace from Mel Spivak is one of my most asked about items recently.  It’s sterling silver and plated in either white, yellow gold or rose gold.  Kenny and I have matching necklaces and I absolutely love them!  My necklace is the 16″ length and Ken’s is the 14″ length.

Another personalized gift idea I love are these handwritten bracelets.  This Etsy shop takes your loved one’s handwriting and turns it into a piece of jewelry.  This is so special and would be an amazing gift for someone who lost a loved one this past year.

Handwritten recipes are a prized possession to me.  I framed recipes written out by my grandparents and they hung in our first home.  For a fun twist, you can turn your family handwritten recipes into a work of usable art with these cutting boards.




Barefoot Dreams is the ultimate in hygge.  Their products are so buttery soft and magical.  Read this post all about my favorite Barefoot Dreams dupes if the price point is too hefty for your budget this holiday season.  The super soft and cozy leopard print throw blanket, gray or white $38 bathrobe and cozy socks are all gifts that I would personally be thrilled to receive.

Grab this three set of Christmas fuzzy socks for under THREE DOLLARS!



Another awesome personalized gift idea is this pair of monogrammed slippers.  Only $35 and something your mama will use every day!





There are about a million options in the beauty world.  My top two ideas that I know my own mom would love:

Riki loves Riki makeup mirror.  I have one and love it.  It gets so bright and comes with a magnifying attachment.

Skin Gym Rose Quartx Facial Roller.  Adding a facial roller into your skincare regimen is easy to do and has so many benefits.




A gift I myself would die over?  A floral subscription.  How awesome is the idea of receiving regular floral arrangements?

You know I’m a crazy plant lady, so a beautifully potted plant is a great gift idea in my book.

For the art lover in your life, this paint by numbers floral picture is such a fun idea.
