Christmas Red Plaid Tablescape With Bed Bath & Beyond

*This post was sponsored by Bed Bath and Beyond through AspireIQ. All opinions are my own.

I can't deny that I love Christmas. It's in my bones. Everything about the season fills my cup in the best way. I blame my parents really. I come from a long line of Christmas lovers, and they bred it in me at a young age. My mom used to decorate each room in my childhood home in a different theme - right down to the shower curtains in the bathrooms.

I typically don't love a ton of color. If you've seen my tree, it's sticks to that trend in my life. I have mostly silver, gold and burlap in my home, when it comes to my Christmas decor, but this year, I decided to add some festive red by way of my Christmas tablescape.

I recently had a chance to stop by Bed Bath & Beyond new in-store seasonal section and was able to find all the things to make my holiday table a hit. Bed Bath & Beyond recently transformed their store to offer seasonal offerings. Basically, they'll be getting new merchandise in store weekly, so it's kind of like a treasure hunt, as you'll never know what you're going to get! They are currently rolling these out at different stores nationwide, so you might not see this feature everywhere. If you are in the Denver area, you can find this in-store feature at the Denver West Village location at 14383 W Colfax Ave, Golden, CO 80401.
Making A Christmas Tablescape
I picked up everything pictured on my table at Bed Bath & Beyond. These cute red plaid tablecloths and napkins were just what I needed to add a little red to my holiday decor. I was very cautious of staying away from a country Christmas vibe when introducing this red plaid, and instead wanted to focus on a glam red plaid Christmas tablescape. I found these cute signs and pine cone candles in the "treasure hunt" section of the store, and I feel like they really pulled the look together. Everything else is linked below!

Best Sequin Jumpsuits For NYE Under $150

So many of you DM'd me about this sequin jumpsuit I got from Vici Collection. It sold out almost instantly, so I decided to round up some other amazing sequin jumpsuits to share.
Best Sequin Jumpsuit For NYE
I've seen so many sequin jumpsuits this season at astronomical prices, and I have to say...don't do it! Trendy pieces should never be a splurge piece, if you ask me. That's why I decided to round up the Best Sequin Jumpsuits For NYE Under $150.

I've been gravitating toward jumpsuits for all my holiday looks, this year. (I picked up this guy for our annual Black and White party.) But, these sequin numbers take the cake over a New Year's Eve Party dress, and are sure to be a hit for all your holiday needs. Wear them now for your New Year's Eve outfit, then repurpose them next year for Christmas - or even your upcoming birthday look! So many options. Brandon's mom turns 60 next year and will be throwing a 70's party. It's safe to say I'll be rocking this again, then.

Speaking of New Year's, what do you have planned? I remember having major plans last year, and then being so sick I couldn't do anything. This year, I'm determined to go all out - and counting on a friend to throw a party LOL. If that falls through, I guess I'll resolve to sit and watch the countdown on my couch - but either way...I'm wearing this sequin jumpsuit.

How To Style Oversized Sweater With A Leopard Skirt

I'm having a moment with leopard lately, and this skirt is no exception. I absolutely love oversized sweaters with skirts. It's the juxtaposition of cozy and dressy that do it for me - and this oversized sweater and leopard skirt are the perfect match of comfort and classy. 

This sweater is a dreamy oversized fit. I ordered a small and it fits perfectly over my hands, to give it that uber cozy vibe that love. This midi skirt is lined, so it's perfect for work, but also can be styled so many different ways - making it a killer versatile piece to add to your closet. After all, leopard is a neutral you know.

Holiday Dress Shop

It's that time of year again when we look for the perfect Holiday dress! It's my favorite part of the season when it comes to fashion (aside from the Victoria Secret Fashion show, obvi). Christmas party dresses come in the most fun styles! This is the time to step out of the box and play with new textures, silhouettes, and colors. I've rounded up a few of 2018's best holiday party dresses in categories below - in ALL price points. I'm personally willing to splurge a little when it comes to the right holiday dress, but I rounded up some awesome budget-friendly pieces too. If you're on a tight budget, but need a cute new Christmas party dress, H&M has the cutest pieces here.

Also, if you're looking to rent a dress this holiday season I highly recommend The Stylist LA. They have the cutest selections of dresses you actually want to wear (and probably won't see anyone else at the party wearing.) 
Christmas Party Dress

LBD - You can never go wrong with a classic little black dress. It's an effortless style that will forever be a hit. There's also endless ways to restyle a plain LBD, by switching out heels and accessories, to give it a fresh look each time.

Gowns  - A floor length gown is a serious show stopper. If you have any formal parties to attend, you can't go wrong with these options.

Red Dresses - Nothing says holiday like a red dress at your Christmas party. 

Green Dresses - I am BEYOND obsessed with green holiday dresses right now. Our annual Christmas party is a black and white dress party, or I'd be snatching one of these up in a heartbeat.

Metallic Numbers - If there is any time to bust out the metallic styles, it's for the holidays. Wear it to a Christmas party, then restyle it for New Years.

Sequins - Similar to the metallic dress, just slightly more extra - sequins are your best friend this time of year.

Velvet - Wrap me up in velvet and I'll be good to go. This plush fabric is one of my favorite trends, and is not going anywhere anytime soon.

Accessories - Add a little glam to an otherwise basic chic with these fun holiday accessories.

Cute Holiday Look: White Sweater + OTK Boots + Pom Beanie // $1000 Nordstrom Giveaway!!

Can you believe December 1st is tomorrow? I'm not complaining though. I'm 100% here for the holidays and can't get enough of everything December has to offer. All the lights, the music, the copious amounts of wine and laughter shared with friends. It's pretty much the best and fuels my fire in all the best ways. I'll also let you in on a little secret that I basically eat cookies for breakfast most of December, so the month is just goodness if you ask me.

This white sweater, OTK boots, and pom beanie might be one of my favorite winters looks to date. I've been feeling all the cute winter accessories this season and this beanie is at the top of the list. (currently 30% off with code 11750). I've been loving dressing down otherwise dressier looks with beanies this season. It's fun and adds a bit of a holiday vibe. If you're thinking of trying the trend, don't wait. I'll link to a few of my favorite beanies this season below.

Not new to my closet, but still some of my faves, are these OTK boots and this white pom sweater. I love how fun this sweater is for winter, and it's so think and warm! It's such a fun touch to any look. These OTK boots fit TTS and have been on major repeat for me this season.

The Ultimate List of Gifts Men Actually Want This Christmas 2018

Why are men so hard to shop for? Like really? It's like, you could literally buy me almost anything right down to a pair of socks and I'd be happy. But men... so hard! I've been working hard on the ultimate list of gifts men actually want this Christmas, and I think I did pretty good. I even ran it by Brandon to get his ok. Some of these are gifts I have bought Brandon in the past, but some of them are items that I never would (i.e beard kit) but I know other men in my life (like my nephew/brother) would love. I'd got everything from stylish clothes, to tech gifts, to gifts for the chef or bartender. If you want to see my men's christmas gift guide from last year, there are some great items there too. 

I've rounded up gifts that range from high to low, and some of these are a little pricey, but honestly, I tend to spend more on my guy around the Holidays because I feel like I spend more on me every other time of year. ;) I like to splurge on him for Christmas, because he never buys himself anything and well...everything he likes IS expensive. 

Men's Christmas Gift Guide 2018

The Ultimate List of Gifts Men Actually Want This Christmas 2018

Ugg Chuka Boot: Brandon has these and is obsessed with them. He is SO picky about his boots, and we had been on the hunt for a pair for a while. When we came across these, he instantly loved them for the style and comfort. If you're looking to gift your guy a new pair of boots, I highly recommend these.

DJI Drone: A little pricier on the list, but well worth it. If you are looking for a splurge piece that your guy will love, I highly recommend these DJI drones. Brandon has bought two (we use them for Real Estate marketing) but I know other guys that have bought them and love them. There's really nothing better for a guy than being able to go outside and fly these things. Don't ask me why. I've linked multiple highly rated options in different price ranges below, allow the DJI is definitely the most advanced/professional version.

Personalized Socks: I know, I know. It's socks. But these are personalized, and not only would make great stocking stuffers for your guy, but also it's like a gift for you when you are pairing the laundry. I learned that last year when I stuffed Brandon's stocking with Happy Socks, and quite frankly, it's been the gift that keeps on giving to both of us.

Patagonia Hat: You really can't go wrong with a Patagonia hat, if you ask me. Every guy I know that has one, wears it all the time. It's an inexpensive and super versatile gift.

Apple Air Pods: Everyone I know that has these swears by them! I feel like they are a safe gift that would work for just about anyone.

Classic Suede Moccasin: If your guy is in need of an at home shoe upgrade, you can't go wrong with these. They are stylish, quality footwear and only $50! (On sale right now for $25!!)

Bar Tool Set: Any cocktail lovers out there? This bar tool set has all the things needed to whip up any yummy libation. Plus, it's stylish AF so it's a win/win for your countertop.

Pocket Bike Pump: I can see this one making its way into Brandon's stocking for sure. He is an avid bike rider, and if your guy is too, you can't ever go wrong with bike accessories.

Beard Care Kit: If your guy is obsessed with his beard (I know a few guys who are!) this would be a great self care gift for them. Sure, you'll have to concede and pretend that you actually love the love they have for their man hair, but hey...they'll be happy.

Liquid Body Flask: This sleek flask is handcrafted in Brooklyn. If your boo is proud to be an American, and loves his whiskey, you cant really go wrong here.

Himalayan Salt Tequila Glasses: I absolutely love Uncommon Goods for unique gift ideas, and they didn't disappoint with these Himalayan salt tequila glasses. You all loved my Himalayan salt grilling plank from last year's gift guide, and I feel like this is like that but the 2.0 version. I mean...plus tequila.

Bartender's Knife: I genuinely have no idea what this is used for. When it comes to mixology, I know how to cork a bottle of wine and pour it into my glass, and that's about it. Ok, ok...I do make a cocktail every now and then, but this seems next level and all the bougie. If your guy is an aspiring at home mixologist, I think this would be a dope gift. Plus it comes in a BA case, so there's that. 

Principles Book: You can't go wrong with a good book and I've heard amazing things about Principles by Ray Dalio. It's filled with unconventional life and business principles by one of themost successful hedge-fund manager (he's worth 19 billion!). It will definitely be making an appearance in Brandon's gift section on Christmas morning. 

Coravin: Looking for a unique gift for your wino? Everyone swears by the Coravin because it allows you to sample bottles of wine without opening the whole thing. It's great for someone who collects expensive bottles or only wants a glass at a time. 

Sous Vide: Have an aspiring chef at home? (I'm jealous!) This sous vide will be a hit for your guy that loves to cook and appreciates a perfectly prepared piece of meat. 

Osmo Gimbal: I got Brandon one of these for his birthday and he loves it. It stabilizes all videos on your iPhone and makes it super smooth. You could even run with it and it would be stable. Brandon just informed me that they came out with a pocket version that literally just dropped this morning on the DJI website

Pullover / Jacket: When all else fails, you can't go wrong with a stylish new piece for your guy. I love anything by Patagonia but also found some super cool budget friendly pieces below. 

Hope you guys like these Christmas gift ideas for men! See anything that you think you'll buy? If you have any ideas, I'd love to hear them too! Also, please feel free to share my posts on your social media and tag me. I love knowing when you guys like what I post and that's a great way for me to get your feedback!
