Lou Lately: 2016 in Review

Lou Lately: 2016 in Review

Hi friends! I cannot believe that the last day of 2016 is here! CRAZY how fast time is flying. Although 2016 wasn’t all that bad, I am still definitely ready to move into a new year. HELLO 2017!!!

The Good:

One thing I am proud of in 2016 was that I cooked a lot more than in 2015. I started to eat more Paleo which required to me to pay more attention to the food I was eating which naturally lead me to cook more. I am really starting to enjoy cooking more than ever before. I am into trying new recipes and making my own tweaks and variations. My parents got us a KitchenAid stand mixer for Christmas and I can’t wait to start making my own paleo pizza dough and sweets (obviously after the new years cleanse!).

Stocking Stuffers Under $50

Stocking Stuffers Under $50

Below you will find some awesome stocking stuffer ideas for Him and Her! I have been using the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Deep Pore Cleansing for years and I can’t get enough of it. I swear my brown spots look lighter and my pores look smaller after using it mixed with apple cider vinegar! And you cannot beat the price at $11 for one pound of this amazing product! I also use the Leven Rose Organic 100% Pure Cold Pressed Unrefined Natural Jojoba Oil regularly and my skin has felt much more moisturized since I added face oils into my routine. I like this one because it is organic and cold pressed which is important to keep in mind when comparing oils. How cool is the Pick Punch – The Original Guitar Pick Punch? It can make a guitar pick out of just about anything…  old credit cards, id’s, hotel keys! Perfect for the musician in the family!

Thanksgiving Table Inspiration

Now that you have read, Thanksgiving Essentials Under $50 & Hosting Like a Boss, you are going to get your table set up early right?! I have rounded up some gorgeous Thanksgiving table inspiration pics below to get your creativity fired up! I personally am feelin’: white pumpkins, eucalyptus and lots of white candles of all different widths and heights. I am also SUPER into the butcher paper as table “cloth” and place setting. Genius idea to use as place setting and write “what are you thankful for” at each guests spot and leave a pen for them to fill in, total conversation starter! Added bonus… butcher paper makes for a super easy clean up!

I put together a list of items that can serve as decor for your Thanksgiving table!

This year, I am already in the Halloween spirit and want to be prepared with a more original costume ready to go!  What are you guys dressing up as?
