Some recipes are special because they just have so many memories attached to them. My mom’s cream puffs are one of those – plus, they are DELICIOUS. I grew up enjoying these at family gathering’s with my mom’s side of the family. I remember my papa loving them and my cousin and I being nearly giddy with excitement for them (not gonna lie…we’re both in our 30’s now and still act the same way when the opportunity arrises!). I have made them myself several times, but they’re always better when my mom makes them. The shells take a little finesse but the filling is simple, and the effort of assembly is 100% worth it!
Time for some holiday nail art! Bold red and sky blue is one of my favorite non-traditional Christmas color combos, and I absolutely adore how it came together in this mani. I love white manicures in the winter – and I’m thrilled this was on my nails for our first snow❄️

The holiday season means something special to everyone. Whether it is a deeply spiritual time of year for you or you’re all about the parties and presents (or a combination of both!), most of us can agree that spending time with those closest to us truly makes the season special. The month of December stresses me to the max every year, but once I’m sitting at the table surrounded by family, I always feel centered and ready to enjoy the special traditions of the season. For me, the holiday is all about FAMILY. What better way to connect with your family than by learning about your genetic ancestry?!
One of the major perks of moving up to Cleveland for me is that I’m not about 10 minutes from the nearest LUSH store! This is so dangerous! We were at the mall last weekend and we were really well behaved. Benn picked out two bars of soap and I grabbed this little holiday treat: LUSH Christingle Naked Body Conditioner. This is my first experience with LUSH’s new Naked body wash and body conditioner products, and I really like it!
