Happy, Happy Wednesday, Blogland!

I am baaaaaaaaaack...and could not be happier, boy, how I've missed you all!!!

What a whirlwind and adventure the last 2 1/2 weeks have been without power in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, and what catching up I have to do!  Looking forward to all your lovely blogs, and getting my blog back up to speed!

First off, I wanted to kick off my holiday and gift giving themed blogs, which I often do this time of year, so, when the KIA contacted me about teaming up with Fabulous Fashions 4 Sensible Style to do a little Holiday Road Trip Feature, it got my creative juices flowing, and I knew it would be the perfect place to start!

I don't know about you, but I love road trips, and have been on quite a few over the years, especial with my move from LA to NYC this year!  When it comes to holiday trips on the open road, there are 3 things that are a must have for moi to have along...

1. Cozy Clothing 

2. Caffeine-filled Comfort Beverages 

3. Jammin' Tunes

So, I put together a few of my must haves below, which are also affordable, including what I would sport and take with me when hitting the road this holiday season!

Let's start spreading the holiday cheer!  I'll be back on Friday with my Hurricane Sandy experience and picture show from before, during and after, and the entire 2 week power outage!

Thank you so much for your patience over the last couple weeks, and for all the support and messages I received! ♥


  1. Glad to see you back, safe and sound.

  2. Great choices. Love the sweater.

  3. Hey girl, nice to see you back. I know you were hit hard, but all is safe and sound. I sure love that sweater:)

  4. Welcome back dear!!!!
    Great choices, I like the boots and sweater!!!!

  5. YES!!! Cozy socks are definitely a must...looove your choices!

  6. What I love most about road trips are just the conversations that we have as a family. We play silly games and just talk to each other about everything. It is really a special time. My must haves are slip on shoes, comfy pants and a jacket or sweater. I also like to have a book on my iPod to listen to if Jemma gets in a movie mode!

    1. That just made me think about road trips when I was little...we would play the one where we try to find every state license plate in the US! :)

  7. So glad you're back! Bring on the Mariah Christmas for ALL car rides now!

    1. "All I want for Christmas is you..." BEST Christmas song ever!!! <3

    2. I love "Driving home for Christmas" from Chris Rea - perfect combination of Christmas and road trip! ;-)

  8. My favorite thing about road trips is when my sister falls asleep akwardly and I take pictures of her! *teehee*

  9. great post! would you like to follow each other? let me know!

  10. My essentials are: chapsticks (I'm quite addicted...), paper tissues for my BF (always needs them - never has them), a blanket, an all-weather-jacket that can also be used as a pillow, cereal bars, some money and a first aid kit. Wow - quite a lot! ;-)


Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to look at my little spot in blogland!

I welcome all comments and thoughts and look forward to hearing from you! :)
