The Mystery of the Disappearing Blogger

Yep I took a break, and I am so not sorry I did. Things got beyond crazy busy and something had to give, and it was the blog. I haven't abandoned the blog by any means, I was just focused on being with friends/family, going on vacation, enjoying some down time, and something really exciting I will be sharing soon. The point is, it was nice not to worry about creating good content or wracking my brain coming up with gift guides that no one else has made.

Since my vacay was the highlight of my time "off" I thought I would fill you in on that. I went to Riviera Maya and had the most amazing five days with my boyfriend. Here is how a typical day was spent: wake up, breakfast, pool/cabana, lunch, more pool/cabana, nap in the room, shower, dinner, cocktails, sleep, repeat. It was heaven. I cannot say enough good things about our resort, El Dorado Royale. It was an all-inclusive, but actually had good food and drinks... who knew that was possible? Writing this is making me sad, but on a positive note the workaholic (D not me) has insisted we go for a week next time. Is it too soon to start planning next year?

My view every morning... didn't suck.

Where I spent my afternoons. I may as well be an albino and know my limits in the sun. Cabana me.

Oh hey an elusive picture of the write of this blog! This was taken on our deep sea fishing boat. It was a blast and I can't wait to do it again!

That would be the huge-ass fish I caught. Two feet long and ten lbs, he put up a good fight (not pictured his insane monster teeth). Too bad you can't eat barracuda because I would have loved to say I caught my own dinner.

Target Christmas List + A $500 Giveaway

I have a very exciting giveaway today, but first wanted to share some great finds from everyone's favorite store Target. Above are some of my favorites currently available at Target, and yes that image is shoppable! It's a pretty random assortment, but hey that store has everything so who can blame me. I would love to have that blue nail head trim chair in my living room with that throw atop of it. A Nespresso needs no explaining. A swanky camera that's small enough to take everywhere with wifi for quick uploading is high on my list. It's a silly gift, but I would love a nice electric toothbrush and would never buy one for myself. Along the lines of things you would never buy yourself but wouldn't mind getting would have to be one of those electric pedi things. It's absurd, but I think I would love it. High-end electronics are always a hit, especially fun headphones and a curling iron that curls with the push of a button (fo' realz). And who wouldn't love finding Essie polish, a new set of makeup brushes, and some organic lip balm in their stocking? This girl certainly would love all of it.

I am so excited to share that I have partnered with some fabulous bloggers to bring you an amazing giveaway for the holidays! We are giving away a $500 gift card to Target to make your holiday shopping a little bit merrier! The contest will run December 1st-10th and we're giving you lots of entries to help your odds out.
