Mugs for the Glam Girl

I have a confession, and I’m not ashamed to admit it: I am addicted to mugs. I LOVE them- what a better way to start your morning than with a glam mug? Mugs are one of my favorite way to express my personality. I remember being a Soldier in uniform (not much room to let your glam girl show!) at the office with the CUTEST mugs. I felt like though I was confined to a standard uniform and hair style, I could at least let my glam girl come out through my cup of choice.

I’ve rounded up some of my favorite styles around the web for you. With the holidays coming around in full swing, these mugs would make great gifts! For a quick but great gift for your favorite girl in the office, your best glam girlfriend, or your family members, stuff these mugs full of treats, gift cards, makeup goodies and other glam gifts. You could also add a homemade hot chocolate with some paper straws and marshmallows for the perfect morning treat.

Pumpkin Pecan Cherry Granola

Pumpkin Pecan Cherry Granola

For my last pumpkin recipe for the month, I contributed this Pumpkin Pecan Cherry Granola over at my friend Ashley’s lifestyle blog, Minck.co. This homemade granola has SO many benefits- it’s super easy to make, it has the perfect balance of nutty, pumpkin flavored and sweet, and it goes great with your morning yogurt or with milk! My favorite part of this recipe is that you can store this granola in a mason jar and give it out as party favors during your holiday dinner parties. (AND it makes your whole home smell good when you make it… see, you can’t go wrong with this recipe!)

You can find the recipe here at Minck.co. For next month, I’ll be using a wintry white ingredient for three more guest posts!

Three Bean Casserole

Three Bean Casserole

Growing up-and still to this day- Thanksgiving is my favorite time of year. Between the food, the family and friends, and the constant trips from lounging on the couch to snacking on leftovers in the kitchen, this holiday is hard to beat.

I loved every piece of the Thanksgiving food spectrum, but for some reason, the classic green bean casserole never struck a chord with me in my younger years. As an adult though, I can’t get enough of it.

This year, Jay and I have decided to host Thanksgiving at our apartment. We’re used to throwing dinner parties, so how hard can throwing a Thanksgiving party be? I guess I’ll find out (wish me luck!)

Fireball Spiked Nog

Fireball Egg Nog

I don’t know about you, but I just realized that Thanksgiving is just a week and a couple days away! My boyfriend and I love hosting dinner parties and have been toying with the idea of hosting Thanksgiving at our place, but our plans keep changing, which is totally expected for the holidays! Because we love hosting dinner parties, and will be having more in the future, I wanted to come up with a drink that I could keep around the holidays.

I wanted to share this Fireball Spiked Nog recipe with you because, let’s be honest here, nothing says holiday more than egg nog! Add a little hint of cinnamon whiskey and you’ve got your new favorite holiday cocktail.
