It’s that time of year again! When people rush to line up at stores in hopes of scoring major deals for Black Friday. My thought is why do that when you could stay at home and shop in your pyjamas! With deals like this, I say RUN don’t WALK (to your computer) because you don’t want to miss out on this! I have already placed a few orders and plan on crossing a few more things off my Christmas list this weekend. Everything you need to know is below! HAPPY SHOPPING!
It’s time for another Dressing Zuri Bloom post! Every couple of months I like to post some of our favourite outfits from Zu’s closet here on the blog! With every new season I swear it’s my favourite for shopping little baby clothes, but I now know that Fall/Winter is definitely my fav! Plus, Zuri is finally able to fit into the toddler section at some stores, so it’s a whole new world of outfit options! It’s not a secret that we shop for a lot of Zuri’s outfits at Gap and Old Navy, and today they have AMAZING pre-black Friday sales going on! (Hello 50% off at GAP!!) So make sure to check it out and get some of your holiday shopping done at amazing prizes! Happy Shopping!
When it comes to dressing for the season, my go-to look is layering knits! They are so soft and can keep you nice and warm during the cooler temps. The only problem is, sometimes my outfits end up looking a little ‘blah’ because I generally stick to neutral colors that don’t have a lot of personality. Well, that is where accessories come into play. For today’s look my accessories are definitely stealing the show. I am in love with my new JORD Wood Watch. The dark wood mixed with the charcoal face and gold details is just the right balance of feminine and edgy! It is matching so many of my winter wardrobe! They are also so lightweight and comfortable to wear, I usually forget I even have it on!
JORD Wood Watches have so many awesome timepieces to choose from this season, and one of their watches would make an amazing Christmas gift for anyone on your list! Make sure to check out their site and look around, you will not be dissapointed! I am so excited to be teaming up with them to run an amazing giveaway for you guys this week!

Winner will be chosen on November 27th!
Zuri is ONE! And we had so much fun celebrating her first birthday at her party over the weekend! With a name like Zuri Bloom, it was hard not to lean towards a boho-floral themed party! I started on Pinterest (follow me here) and slowly started adding decor to the house! I ordered a few things from Etsy, and used a lot of local venders as well! She had such an amazing day with family and friends! And although we planned for a cake ‘smash’ – I should have known that our girl is way too prissy to get messy! lol So she enjoyed her cake in a more proper way (off mommy’s fork) later on! I hope you guys get some inspiration from this post! I will post ALL of the details from the party at the bottom of the post so you can see where everything is from! Also – if you missed her first year video you can watch it here! I don’t want the celebrations to end, so I am going to leave her decorations up for a little while longer! Thanks for stopping by!

I can’t believe that I am sitting down to write this post… my baby’s first year. And now i’m going to write the most cliche thing a new mom can say – where did the time go??? I still remember the day she was born, when they laid her on me for the first time in the delivery room, and her bright eyes looking all around. Little did I know that I was about to experience every possible emotion a woman could feel during a 12 month timeframe. She brings so much joy to our family, and even during some of the most challenging moments she is the light that brings us through it. I am obsessed with her little personally; wrinkling her nose when she knows she’s being funny, when her legs swing in her highchair because supper tastes extra good, and when I say “where do you think your going, missy” and she looks back and laughs. So many wonderful memories, big and small, that will stay with me forever. I couldn’t help myself but to put some of these moments into a little video. I hope you all enjoy looking back – it really has been a bloomin’ good year. Happy Birthday Zuri Bloom – we love you!
