Can you believe Thanksgiving is tomorrow? I'm kind of freaking out right now. I mean, how is it that the holidays are coming up so fast this year? I say that every year, but this year in particular feels like it's just zooming by and I can't seem to keep up. Anyone else feel that way? I know many of you will be out shopping on Black Friday or maybe you'll steer clear of the crowds and do all of your shopping online, either way I wanted to create one more Holiday Wish List before then to help with any shopping you might be doing.

Every year, I'm asked by all of my family members for a wish list so they know what to get me. I ask the same in return. It makes life so much easier when there's a list to follow. Granted, not everything on the list is purchased so there is still an element of some surprise on Christmas morning. This year is no exception. I create these holiday wish lists in hopes that it'll help my family know what to get me, and to help you guys out too. And literally everything on these boards are what I am desperately wishing for. So lovely family of mine, here you go!

Wall Art // Buddy Editions Prints

Top Row: Lingerie / Diana Vreeland / Manhattan Matches
Middle Row: Paris / Tasting Stars / Coco Chanel
Bottom Row: Bunny Ears / Albino Peacock / City Living

I'm always keeping my eyes out for new artwork, so you can imagine my giddiness when I heard about Katie Armour's newly launched online art gallery dedicated to art enthusiasts. Her new site, Buddy Editions, showcases works from emerging artists around the world, and all starting at $50. Can't beat that, right? And these would make for great holiday gifts. I know I wouldn't mind finding one of these underneath the Christmas tree.

Here are some of my favorites from the site right now. I'm kind of thinking that the Diana Vreeland prints needs to be in my house somewhere.

Holiday Wish List // For Her

11192014 holiday wish list for her
Tory Burch Kira Calf Hair Crossbody Bag / Madewell Silk Bedtime Top in Penguin Play / Madewell Silk Bedtime Shorts in Penguin Play / BCBGMAXAZRIA Gisella Top / Kate Spade Pretty Little Thing iPhone 5 case / Cameo Oceans Dress / Jane Pope Jewelry Delicate XO ring / Jane Pope Jewelry Circles Eternity Band / Jane Pope Jewelry Twig Stack Ring / Gap Calf Hair Tech Gloves / Tory Burch Mayada Satin Smoking Slippers / Valentino Rockstud Pumps / Kate Spade Evening Bell Feather Mimi / C.Wonder Gems Trinket Tray

It's that time of year again! And as usual, I've created these Holiday Wish Lists to help you all (and my family members who are shopping for moi, hehe) shop for the lovely ladies in your lives whether they be your friend, sister, mother, girlfriend, or wife.

Now, with all holiday wish lists that I create, I try to pick things that are more of a luxury item - things I normally would not buy for myself because really, that's the kind of gift you want to open, right? So don't be surprised if the prices are a little higher than usual. Especially, those Valentino's that I've been dying for.

Recap // Our Hawaii Vacation

photo 1
The day after we arrived in Kailua, we all woke up early to catch the sunrise. Luckily, jet lag served us well that day, because it was such a beautiful sight.

We're baaack! As sad as it was to leave Oahu, especially after our stay at The Royal Hawaiian, it feels so good to be home and to get ready for the holidays! We had a wonderful time with my family in Hawaii. It felt kind of like being home in some ways for me since I was born there and lived there til I was 6. My earliest memories are of the beach and of life there, so it was a nice homecoming for me, especially since I was bringing my own little family there.

I wrote a bunch for each photo, so instead of rambling on here, I'll just let you guys get to the good stuff, the photos. Enjoy!!

Such a beach bebe. Went in with her clothes on after we had watched the sun rise.

The pool at our beach house was like a dream.

We took so many photos at my cousin's wedding, but somehow this was the best one of me and Cora. Surprise, surprise.

photo 1
The most perfect backdrop for a wedding. The Mid-Pacific Country Club is unreal, guys.

Just a handful of the jewelry that I brought on the trip. And most definitely my favorite pieces I've got right now.

So, a few months ago when Old Navy was still selling Summer wear, I got this pineapple romper (similar) for Cora cause I knew it would be the perfect ensemble for her to wear to the Dole Plantation. I know, too obvious, but ya know what, I couldn't help myself. There could not be a more perfect outfit for a trip to a pineapple plantation, right?

Being total tourists.

All I can say is that I don't think I got enough Keoki's Shaved Ice on this trip. Although, even if I had had it everyday, it still wouldn't have been enough. It's that good.

photo 2
Don't be fooled, Waimanolo Beach Park was absolutely perfect looking, but there was a warning sign for man-of-wars (giant jellyfish), so we steered clear from swimming. But it sure is pretty to look at, no?

photo 1
On our last day, we checked into The Royal Hawaiian since our flight wasn't until midnight. It was the perfect getaway if you could call it that. If you come to Hawaii, you need to stay here. It's beyond paradise-like and was a total dream to be there. If the grandeur of the building and warm hospitality don't get ya, the pink decor will. Especially the pink umbrellas on the beach.

photo 3
Cora's first umbrella drink. Don't worry, it was just a kid's smoothie.

photo 4
I wanted to take one of those pink umbrellas back home with us.

photo 1
My kind of cabana.

photo 2
I absolutely loved the indoor/outdoor living aspect of the hotel. It was all open air and even though you were 'inside' it still felt like you were outside enjoying the scenery.

No better way to end our amazing family vacation in Oahu with a piƱa colada. Aloha Hawaii! Til next time!
