This month, I feel like a busy elf running from appointment to appointment, store to store and meeting to meeting. I’ve had many exciting life events this past month. I am now writing for Metro Magazine’s fashion and shopping blog—so much fun! My good friend Kari had a baby boy last night who I hope to meet tonight! Welcome baby Griffin! I hosted a huge festive holiday cocktail party with 60 wonderful guests! And now it’s time to clean the house, get all of my shopping done, gifts wrapped, cookies baked, so with that, time is limited. I want to share a few of my favorite blogs that inspire me with their holiday cheer.


Eat Drink Pretty
Eat Drink Pretty is all about food, drinks and weddings—every feature on Eat Drink Pretty is FANCY! The blog’s author, Jenna, says she is “just a normal gal that loves all things food, wine, cocktails and entertaining.” Eat Drink Pretty is one of my first stops before I plan a party. I love to check out Jenna’s recipes and party planning tips. From delicious sugared cranberries to how to set a table, Jenna is a great resource for living the fancy life. Enjoy!

Sarah Beth Photography blog
I have featured Sarah’s work before as a fancy gift idea for the pet lovers in your life. I couldn’t help but include her in this list of a few of my favorite blogs. I can’t stress enough how her blog makes me feel! I laugh and smile the entire time. Seriously—check out her work! And Sarah is the person I have to thank for the new header! Thank you Sarah!

Metro Magazine
I have to do a plug for my personal favorite Twin Cities Magazine (and not just because I am now writing for them). Metro is edgy, fun and on top of all of the best happenings in the Twin Cities. is my go-to site for events, restaurant reviews, things to do and more. Check out my recent work for Metro Magazine and bookmark for great date night ideas, local fashion info and so much more.

All Things Lovely
Check out All Things Lovely for inspiration for everyday! The blog is filled with beautiful images of people, weddings home decor, art and more. It is pure eye candy!
