Well, we’ve made it. The final week until Christmas. I still have some small things to grab, and some presents for the cats.

Tom told me today that the gift he bought me showed delivered, but it wasn’t, so that is super fun. Merry Christmas to me.

If you missed it, I did a dive into finding your personal style this week, and shared what the majority of my winter capsule wardrobe looks like.

I also sat down and compiled a list of my go-to outfit uniforms that I gravitate to, especially if I don’t know what to wear.

They are my tried and true collection of feeling put together even when I know I am not. I made them into a 10 outfit Digital Guide.

I tried really hard tonight to not order takeout, but I can’t go to bed hungry, and I am in dire need of groceries. I just ordered some fancy tacos because they were two for one.

That way I can feed the older kid who is still up too. Plus, I had a $5 credit from Skip The Dishes, which makes it virtually free.

Not really, but it ended up cheaper than McDonald’s and is going to taste better.

I hope those of you that waited to the last minute to do your Christmas shopping, have a stress-free shopping week.

I am personally avoiding the mall this weekend but to those that aren’t, I wish you luck.
