Small Biz Shopping

In case you haven't heard, today is small business Saturday--time to break yourself free of the two-day turkey coma that you were in, and throw on your shopping shoes and get out there to support your local businesses! Now, even though I often blog about shoes found at online shops and department stores, I've always been a true-blue supporter of small business (feel like it comes with the territory when you grow up in a small town like I did). When I finally moved to a bigger suburban area like Southern California, I thought all of that would be thrown out the window--surrounded by oversized shopping malls and corporate plazas, I thought for sure I should accept a new kinda shopping lifestyle. But oh no was I wrong! There are TONS of small boutiques and businesses all around me where I can get just as good of a deal as any other place, and get to support someone who I actually know and chat with each time I drop by their shop.

Gifts from Tory!

Watch out...the gift guide from one of my all-time fave designers, Tory Burch, recently hit my inbox and man oh man, if it weren't for my financial analyst husband, I'd be shamelessly taking my lunch break at the mall, making a beeline for the Tory store, and whippin' out the credit card on the spot! Sooo much shine in this holiday gift guide: you'll find glimmers of gold, blocks of black, and that classic clean-lined design that is Tory Burch. Check it.

Here are a few of my personal faves, which juuuuust may make it to the short list of Christmas wishes this season:

Life gets nutty. You know the feeling, right? I mean, work piles up, mail and magazines begin to take over the dining room table, and amidst the madness you end up coming home from a full day's work totally and utterly exhausted from using that little brain of yours to solve problems AND manage to be creative. Am I alone here? I sure as heck hope not! Now, don't get me wrong either--I'm not complaining (smirk). When life stacks up with busy-ness, it's good for me to stop and remind myself that it's because my life is good and rich and full of amazing things.

Something I can always slow down for when life gets a little cray-cray is...you get one guess...shoes. I think that's something I mentioned when I first started this blog, too, that so many things change in life, but shoes are just something that I can always count on--my shoe size never changes, and the possibilities are always endless. So when I laid eyes on the 'Thaddea' pumps by Enzo Angiolini, i…
