There are seriously not enough hours in the days during the holidays. You feel me?

It doesn’t matter how early I wake up, or how late I struggle to keep my eyes open, I CANNOT GET EVERYTHING DONE. I need some elves. Stat.

And I’m not even married. And I don’t have children. I don’t know how you moms do it?! Big-ass round of applause for y’all. Because OMG, the struggle is so real right now.

Between training my clients, blogging, working out, sending links to friends and families for Christmas gifts, making gift guides, blogging, blogging, social media, blogging, shopping for Christmas gifts, planning shoots, taking care of my fur child, making sure Little Sister makes it through finals without pulling her hair out, all while trying to be an above-average girlfriend, daughter, friend, granddaughter, sister, etc…my days are just not freakin’ long enough!

And I haven’t even decorated for Christmas. That’s so embarrassing. Don’t judge. I swear I’m better at adulting than this. The holidays just got me like…


BUTTTTTT on a much happier note, I’ve put together a Holiday Boot Guide for all of you lovely people. 🙂

I’ve had quite a few friends contact me, over the past couple of days, wanting help with their Christmas lists. What is it with Christmas lists? I have the hardest time, too! All year long I’m online like OMG OMG OMG need, need, need, want, need, want, want, gotta have it, OMG. And then the family’s like, “What do you want for Christmas?” And I’m like…

Absolutely no clue. Not one. Whatsoever.


Although, this year I will say I’ve been a bit more decisive. And hopefully this boot guide will help YOU add at least one item to your Christmas list.

And men, if you’re reading this — She will do a Christmas happy dance if you buy her some over-the-knee boots. I guarandamntee it. 🙂 (If you need help deciding exactly which ones, feel free to email me. I’m more than happy to help you! You won’t be the first one to do so, trust me.)
