We managed to catch another tree lightning🎍, this time right in uptown Charlotte at the Bank of America Stadium organised by the Carolina @Panthers ... The weather was perfect for a stroll there n back!!! 🚸🚸 Kiddos #SiennaSkyler got their caricatures done... this is their 2nd time getting it coz we came 2 years ago too when we first moved to uptown! (We skipped last year coz we were living down in Waxhaw)
🍨: Do yourself a favor... once you make a batch of my Sweet & Spicy Candied Pecans, pop a few of those bad boys on top of some vanilla ice cream.
🙌🏼: When candy-crust meets luscious cream, you’re in for a real treat. Recipe link on my bio. Happy (almost) Thanksgiving!
I had the amazing opportunity to have a makeup lesson by the incredibly talented ✨ @terilyn_makeup ✨From the start of the service, I was put at ease with her knowledge and expertise. It was so refreshing! I knew I was in good hands!
I learned so many tips and tricks🤯 that were practical and professional🤓. It’s really one of the best investments I made!! (#New York Fashion Week MUA ) I recommend this to entrepreneurs who will have the need for several appearances. 👸🏾I still plan to book the pros for my special events, but for on-the-go exposures, save them coins, Queens! Do your own makeup!💄

Presenting the 2018 Smarty Holiday Hostess Giveaway!
Smarty girlfriends – we are about to embark on what we call the “fund the babysitter” season – AKA – Holiday Party Time! Festivities kick off tomorrow night, then we’re on a non-stop roller coaster from there on out. After you secure the babysitter, pick out your fab attire, and whip up something amazing to take to the party, don’t forget that one important thing – a little something something for the hostess! Certainly, there’s the old standby bottle of wine (my usual, totally uncreative gift-of-choice), but we’ve put together a few suggestions that will hopefully stand out in the crowd. P.S. There’s also a super fun giveaway – one of each item will be given away to some extremely lucky CSP readers. Merry, merry!
Thank you to all of our Smarty Hostess partners 💕 @ellabcandles

Who runs off dry shampoo? This girl! 💁🏼♀️As you babes know, a month ago I chopped off my luscious locks for this spunky bob! I love having short hair! To achieve that effortless beach wave look, I need my hair to be 1-3 days old. I love my dry shampoo from @evahairnyc because it cleans without water and absorbs excess oils, all while feeling light weight & adding volume! It smells amazing too! Now you can get yours at @sallybeauty!
ON THE BLOG 🎁 It is no secret to all of you at this point that my obsession with Christmas is a little overly holly jolly. As far as I am concerned, Thanksgiving is simply the pre-Christmas celebration. Anyway, one of my favorite (and budget friendly) ways to decorate is by taking things around the house and making them more festive!
Today on the blog I’m sharing with you 5 Christmas printables that you can use in frames you already have in your house! You can download these right from the blog! Link in the bio friends 🎄
After lunch @galleryrestaurantclt it was time to check out some of the renovations @ballantynehotel I’ve always loved walking up and down the grand staircase. To see more, check out today’s post. Link in bio!
