I will be back soon to blog about all my favorite things! XoXo
Hello, hello! The Holidays are almost here!
Update: I just posted the link for the shoes. 🙂
I just can’t believe how beautiful the weather has been in South Texas! It feels like summer today. It does not seem like Christmas is less than a month away.
We had an unusually early fall, with cold temperatures and never-ending rainy days. So, it is unbelievable how nice the weather turned out to be in the recent weeks. The holiday decorations are up around the house, but it looks and feels like summer outside. I already brought out the winter clothing, but I guess I did that too soon.
Christmas is still a few weeks away, and the parking lot at the mall is already super crowded. I’m shopping in advance to avoid the last minute rush at the department stores. Even though I prefer
to do most of my shopping online, you can’t always find what you are looking for, and are forced to go to the mall. For many, Christmas shopping is already in full swing. On Saturday morning, just a few minutes before opening, our local Ulta store had a long line of people waiting outside.
People are super stressed out right now, trying to find that perfect gift. I always discuss in my articles the importance of keeping the stress levels low, and it is because of stress that I felt the need and the urgency to write another article at the last minute. I was actually going to take a break, and resume writing after the holidays.
So, it happened four days ago! The Great North Apparel published my picture on their page! The first hour right after my picture was live on their page, I already had one thousand likes. It was
unbelievable. Right before Christmas, I will do another photo shoot for the company. They are a lot of fun. These Instagram influencers are the thing on social media nowadays.
Speaking of fashion, this beautiful pair of Converse shoes that I’m wearing are from my favorite fashionista, Chiara Ferragni.
I will chat with you soon. Thank you for reading my blog. Be sure to leave a comment below. I may do a give away soon. But first, do the following: leave a comment when I update my blog, and follow me on Instagram @ ionunzia Thx! It will be fun!
Although I love to relax on weekends and snuggle up with my fur baby, I also love to feel productive by completing all my tasks. My query about my new article has been sent to the editors. My photo shoot for the Great North is done. Now, all I have to focus on is Thanksgiving. Needless to say, I’m happy that my “to do” list on my phone is getting shorter. We all have that list on our phones. Every day, but especially during the holidays, I thank God for Siri. I don’t know what I would do without her reminders during this busy time. Do people still write reminders down? We can just as easily put our fancy phones to work for us!
Even though it is not officially Thanksgiving yet, there is a festive holiday air flowing around. Yesterday morning, my husband and I completed our holiday grocery shopping together. Ever since we have been married, we have gone holiday shopping together. This year, we implemented a few changes in our tradition: we changed our menu.
I hear you! All of us are going to be super busy cooking and entertaining for most of this week, but even if you don’t have a whole hour, it is important to get some exercise.
Yesterday was my husband’s birthday. We had such a great day! Yes, he was born the day before Halloween. Can you believe it is already here?
Children love Halloween. They are going to be busy celebrating this holiday with many different activities, such as going door-to-door Trick or Treating, carving a pumpkin, visiting haunted houses, or attending costume parties. Tonight, Claudio is going to help us give out candy.
Growing up in Italy, Halloween was not a thing at that time. We only saw it on TV, when Dad and Grandpa watched American movies.
I can’t believe how fast time goes by. It seems like, just yesterday, we were busy celebrating the 4th of July, and here we are at the end of October already. Please, Time, don’t go so fast!
I know that Christmas is still a couple months away, but I’m happy to share that I have already started Christmas shopping. I have always disliked shopping in a crowded store. I always remind myself that planning accordingly during the holidays will keep the stress level low.
If you are taking your little ones out tonight, have fun. The time with your family is priceless. Stay Zen!
