Sister Style: Look Alikes

Something Bailey and I hear A LOT is that we look the same. I mean, we are sisters so that's a given, but as we've gotten older our styles have also become more similar. It's funny because one of our go-to looks is jeans, a sweater/ sweatshirt and a (p)leather jacket and the only part of this post we really planned to match was our Toms. 
The struggles of self-timer and not knowing when it's actually taking pictures..
My Look: Jacket: Guess // Sweatshirt: Toms for Target // Jeans: Gap // Shoes: Toms (Olive)
Bailey's Look: Jacket: Target // Sweater: Aeropostale // Jeans: American Eagle // Shoes: Toms (Ash)

P.S. Sorry for the dark pictures- they weren't dark on Photoshop but as soon as I uploaded them onto Blogger- TOTAL darkness. yuck.

The Circular

 As I already mentioned, Sunday was Bailey's birthday and for birthday's in our family we choose where we want our birthday meal (typically dinner) to be. Bailey decided she wanted to have brunch at The Circular at The Hershey Hotel-easier said than done considering her birthday is so close to Christmas and it was booked months in advance. But my parents pulled it off by calling to check for cancellations the morning of and wouldn't you know it, there was a cancellation for four. We were so excited for an excuse to get dressed up and, of course, the delicious brunch buffet. 
 The food was incredible and I simply couldn't get enough bacon.

What are your traditions?
This was the first time in a few years that we have had all the cousins together for Christmas Eve and the very first picture documenting it.

 My sweet little cousin requested I put a picture of us up and I simply had to oblige.
In case you haven't seen it on Instagram yet, we had a mother-daughter matching moment last night with our Pandora rings and Lokai bracelets.
"You really didn't share with us?"

Merry Duckmas ;) (Lily photobombed at the last second and Macey knew better but I swear I'm showing some duck pride behind it)
Have a Great, Safe Day and Hug your Loved Ones! xo

Holiday Leather

 Merry Christmas Eve everyone! I can't believe Christmas is tomorrow and leave it to me to not have any of my gifts wrapped yet.. oops chronic procrastination strikes again. I bought everything with plenty of time, I just dread wrapping because I'm not very good yet and have way too high of standards. Anyone else have this issue? 
Anyway, we're having some family and friends over tonight for Christmas Eve and I love a reason to play dress-up and always take advantage of holidays. I've been obsessed with my (p)leather leggings from Cotton On lately because they add a fun touch to any look. Tartan/ plaid is always an essential around Christmas and I found this tank on clearance at the end of summer and couldn't resist. I wanted to get a few pictures of this look in case I forget tonight (I always have my phone and somehow still don't take pictures) and since the weather didn't want to cooperate we (Bailey and I) snapped a few in front of the tree.

Sister Style: 15 Years

This is an extra special sister style because today is Bailey's 15th birthday. Seriously? 15? I can't believe how quickly time has been moving. I still remember the night she was born and how my mom used to tell me "one day you're going to be best friends" as we fought over silly things. Of course, my mom was right and we still have our fair share of silly fights but she has become my best friend and I can't imagine life without her.
I tried to find an old picture of us actually looking like we liked each other but instead, here's one where it looks like I'm forcing her to stay in the water with me.
 We styled holiday looks in our own styles with some super cheesy poses that are all too descriptive of us.

Recycled Paper Ornament


In honor of Christmas being in five days, I came up with a quick and easy ornament DIY. The best part about this tutorial (in my opinion) is that it can be made with things you likely already have around the house. 
Materials:
Paper (I used a phonebook)
Glue Stick
Wooden Skewer
Aluminum Foil
Hot Glue
String 
To roll the paper tubes:
Cut the paper in half
Place the skewer in the bottom corner and roll tightly away from you
Use a small bit of glue to secure the end
Pull the skewer out
Make an aluminum foil ball.
Try to remove lumps or they will show when you glue the paper tubes.
 Attach one end of a tube with hot glue and start wrapping it around itself tightly. 
Continue wrapping until you end out of tube.
 To attach another tube:
When you rolled the tubes you may have noticed one end is smaller than the other.
Simply insert one end into the existing tube.
 Continue wrapping tubes around the shape of the foil ball.
 As you reach the other side, hot glue a loop of string in the center.
Continue wrapping paper tubes to fill the space around the string.
When you get to the end, snip off the extra and be sure the end is glued down.
Tada! Now you have a recycled paper ornament to give as a last minute gift or to add to your own tree.

I'd love to see your version if you create one!
