Woohoo. Sale time and this one is gooood!  On of my top favorite brands, Able, has their whole site 30% off with code ABLE30 with free shipping on orders over $49.  The sale runs all week through the end of Cyber Monday.  Even already marked down pieces are eligible for the deal.

Seen above - I am LOVING my new Abera Commuter bag.  Perfect size with two open and one zip pocket inside + the whole thing zips shut!  Look for my instagram stories for a "in my bag" tour to see how great it is more in person.  Also above - my tried and true The Carla High Rise jeans.  I got these when Able first released denim and I grab for them several times a week.  Its so hard to find ethically sourced denim and I couldn't be more thrilled with these, both with the aesthetic and durability but also with the power behind my purchase to support women who have overcome.

Other goodies I'm eyeing in this sale:

Marlene Feminine Mule, the Napa Leopard is such a sweet petite print.  So perfect.  I have another pair of mules form Able and they are so comfortable and versatile.
Hailu Wallet, Okay - so I actually already have one of these.  But I've got it on my list as the perfect gift for a special someone
The Merly Jacket, never have I been so in love with a denim jacket. The perfect amount of structure + worn in feel.
Cleo Earrings, tourtise and brass. so chic.
Susano Maxi T-Shirt Dress, This dress is already in my closet in grey. But both colors are already marked down to $59 from $118 so that means it is less than $42 with the ABLE30 code!
Lourdes Distressed Slouch Tee, another sale item which comes to right around $25 with ABLE30 code.  Saw this one just this week when I ran into the store and it is so soft and perfectly worn in yet still sturdy.

p.s. Magnolia, my 7 year old took these pics for me and I think she did awesome.

winter wear

Snug as a bug in a rug. Loving my new prAna wear for winter. Cozy with the cat at home or out adventuring. This half zip pullover has been such a pleasant surprise. I also love putting it on with my favorite jeans, clogs, and hat for sort of a mountain boho look (I'll try to share that outfit soon on m instagram). I also love it because it’s lined with a super soft T-shirt material inside! and as always — loving that prAna uses organic cottons and recycled fabrics! ♻️

Minted tips and tricks + Easy DIY Card Keepsake

For the last 6 Christmases I have used Minted to make our family Christmas cards.  I love how easy it is to pick out and customize a card.  Plus - I've been able to, aside from postage, basically send out Christmas cards for free.  Here's how!

Free Minted Christmas cards --

First -- Here is $25 off your first order! Just by using this link to create a new Minted account.  Click here.

Second --  Shop early discounts.  If you don't have your pictures made yet but don't want to miss out on a discount you can still pick and purchase your card design and save it to be made later when your photos are ready. You can still edit everything about it.  The only thing you can't change is the design.
Current promo discounts are always in a banner on top of the Minted landing page.

Third -- Postcards.  If your budget is tight or if you just have a million friends you must send those cards to, post cards are the least expensive option.  Plus postage is cheaper.

Fourth -- Look for cards with the option of Express Service.  This will get you another $5 discount.  What this service does is skips the step of Minted proofing your card for you.  So double check your spelling and address etc. and save $.

Fifth !! -- because I did mention FREE -- Referrals!  Minted has an amazing referral program.  What that means is that once you start using Minted for yourself you get a personal link to share with friends.  When they make their first order, you get $25 credit to minted and the person you refer to gets $25 off their first order!  The last few Christmases after combing the above steps I have only needed to refer 4 or 5 friends in order to cover nearly if not all of my order!  So yes, that link above is  referral code, as is this link here! ;)

But hey, even if you aren't into referring friends, if you use my link for $25 off new account + the current discount and express service option, thats still some major savings for quality cards.

Design tips -- 

My favorite design tip for creating Christmas cards with Minted -- most parts of all the designs are customizable.  So for example, if you find a card that says "Christmas Cheer" at the top -- you can change it to "Christ Reigns" or "Crazy Kids" or "First Christmas."  So if you fall in love with a layout or color style of the card, but don't love the wording - you can totally make it your own.  If you see our card up top that says Wildernerss Homestead on it and a scripture on the bottom it was originally shown as "Our New Home" and we added the scripture line where the new address was shown.

And I suppose this falls under design tips too - free recipient addressing! Saves time and saves those of you with "doctor's handwriting" from having to scribble.

Easy Christmas Card Keepsake DIY --

Once I started making our cards with Minted I became obsessed.  I keep ALL of them.  Every year.  Easiest way is with a whole punch and binder rings.  Pretty self-explanatory but so fun and such a treasure to our family.


Current Minted Promo:
20% Off all Foil-Pressed products.  15% off All holiday cardsorders  $150+, 10% off $100+ orders. Code SHINE, exp Monday 11/12.  And these are good WITH my referral link offer of $25 off and the $5 express service discount!  Also may combine code FS100 for free shipping on orders over $100.
