This holiday season kicks off with a bang with Neiman Marcus and Rolls Royce! If you are a lover of Neimans, one of the favorite items to receive is the holiday catalog. This year the ultimate fantasy gift is a Rolls Royce (check it out here). I got the lucky chance to roll around the city with my two girlfriends and attend the Neiman Marcus Champagne and Shoe Event last Thursday and we had a blast.
5 Things I’ve learned this year (and helping me get through the holidays) . . .
I got to drink champagne and hang out with my two beautiful friends that also blog.
Both have two kids (like me!) and killer smiles, and are the sweetest people.
#1 It is very important to surround yourself with great people. People who listen, people who have a good heart and people who are truly there for you. I am so thankful for my close friends who have been lending me their ear, giving me hugs and a glass of wine this year.
#2 Be thankful everyday and appreciate the little things. This year, so many wonderful opportunities have come to me due to my blog and instagram. I have traveled many times, made new friends, worked on many collaborations I am proud of and my kids got to enjoy quite a few adventures as well. I am so thankful for all the opportunities I’ve received, including this blog post!
#3 Laugh and live. Don’t worry so much and live in the moment.

#4 I am a great mom. Period. I work, I go out, I see my girlfriends. But at the end of the day, I am a great mom and they are happy, healthy, and doing well. I still doubt myself, but I’m doing ok and I can’t let self doubt or what I hear change what I know. I’m not the average mom and may not do similar things, but I’m always giving it my best.
Nothing like having fun with these two. Posing like champs.
#5 Gifts are wonderful, but memories are forever. Do something thoughtful as well as give that great gift. The Christmas season gets over whelming, but it’s those little notes, phone calls, and surprises that are memorable. This year has been full of great memories including this one collaborating with Rolls Royce and Neiman Marcus.
I feel like the luckiest girl to drive around Chicago in this beautiful blue Ghost Rolls Royce and I had a blast at the Neiman Marcus in Chicago where my friends and I go to for the best selection of shoes. Thank you both!
Some favorite shoes!
Cheers to the holiday season and continued memories and learnings!
