The holidays, for me, have always been a time for family and friends. We always have a huge family dinner with all of our closest friends--my dad does the bulk of the cooking, my mom makes salad and other veggies, my sister tries not to set herself on fire (love you, sis!), and I make the sides and dessert. There is always way too much food, lots of bad jokes, and amazing, hilarious memories.

I know not everyone is as lucky as I am to live close to their family, or be able to travel home for the holidays, which is why I'm all about this sweepstakes courtesy of Maurice's! From now through December 5th, 2014, you can enter to win $1,500 towards flying you or someone you love home for the holidays!

With the hectic holidays coming up, sometimes you just need a hassle-free, chic outfit that you can wear all day!


Okay. So. I admit to not being familiar with Missguided before, but HOLY. CRAP. They just launched a plus size line, and it's seriously so, SO good. Crop tops, midi skirts, lots of tartan and check prints, gorgeous faux leather detailing...I'm in love! They're bringing us fast fashion at a seriously doable price point. Check out this matching set! The top rings in at less than $30 and the skirt is less than $40. AND, for a limited time, use code PLUS10 for an additional 10% off. Too good! 

*Side note: I'm testing out a new tool where you can click each item on the images below to go straight to the product page! :D I'll still link the items below just in case it's glitchy. Let me know what you think of this feature!
