I'll be ringing in 2018 in this metallic dress!

I love the metallic detailing, open back, and faux leather trim on the neckline. I have also paired it with these super comfortable brocade heels, that will be great to wear all night long!

If anyone has put off their shopping until now, here are few quick ideas that are all under $25! I gave this candle set to my boss this year. I'm considering buying another set for myself! If you haven't noticed, I tend to wear these earrings in multiple colors. So I think they would make a great gift! I also have several pom pom key fobs for my bags, so I love that this one can charge your phone. And if you have missed the shipping date for Christmas Eve delivery, all of these items can be found in stores!

Sugar-Free Moscow Mule Recipe

Moscow Mules are my favorite cocktails, and we typically make them when I go home for the holidays. So I thought I would share how I am changing that up this year, with the Be Mixed ginger-lime mixer, which is sugar-free! It is also all natural,  gluten-free, with no calories, or preservatives.

Bar cart available here

As much as I love a Moscow Mule with the traditional ginger beer, most sugary drinks tend make me feel sick. And ginger beer usually has about 20 grams of sugar. So I think this is a great sugar-free option, that is a lot more fun than something like a vodka soda, which is usually my go-to drink at bars. And I added some cranberries to give it more of a holiday feel!

And if you aren't a Moscow Mule fan, Be Mixed also comes in Margarita (just add tequila), and Cucumber-Mint, which is really good with vodka and club soda! Or if you just don't like vodka, try a Kentucky Mule with bourbon. And if you don't drink, just leave out the alcohol for a mocktail!

1 Be Mixed Ginger-Lime
1 shot of vodka
Slice of lime
Cranberries (optional)

This was really simple to make, I just poured the bottle of Be Mixed and a shot of vodka with ice into my cocktail shaker, poured it all back into my copper mugs, added about a handful of cranberries, and a slice of lime.
Let me know if you end up trying this recipe! What's your favorite holiday cocktail?

Thank you to Be Mixed for sending me some of their mixers to try, all opinions are my own.

Velvet Dress

Velvet dress (only $20!) c/o | Similar glitter tights | Similar ankle booties | Charming Charlie necklace c/o | Baublebar for Target earrings c/o | Lauren Ralph Lauren bag c/o | Stella and Dot "Parker" sunglasses c/o | Stila "Bacca" liquid lipstick 

Bringing another holiday look to the blog with this velvet dress! It's a little different for me, but I really like it! I have been really into the velvet trend, and of course I also love that it's navy. I've been wearing this dress to work a lot lately, I also wore it on Thanksgiving. I think it's a great length on my short legs (which is tough to find in some dresses) and it's so comfortable! I think it would be great for any holiday occasion, maybe even for New Year's Eve!

H&M sweater dress | Steve Madden "Gabbie" OTK boots | Baublebar for Target necklace c/o | Prada sunglasses | Very similar bag | Stila "Patina" lip color

Bringing another Black Friday sale find to the blog, I got this dress for just $20! I don't think I have owned a sweater dress since high school, but I love that they are back. This one is so comfortable, and I really love this teal color. It's one that I don't usually look for, but I really like to wear. And I'm sorry I'm wearing these over-the-knee boots in yet another outfit post...I have been wearing them almost every day recently!
