Shop KC Local: HMK

You guys. You know I love a KC Local post like woah. So for those of you who are not aware, Hallmark is based out of Kansas City and they have recently stepped up their gifting game and opened HMKHMK is a one stop gift shop that has the variety you need for any shopping trip. I am talking culinary accessories, home decor items, gifts for the bros, the gals, the kids and even the necessary gift wrapping accessories. On point, y'all. So I decided to go in and see what this was all about and treat it as a one stop shop for the peeps I still needed to cover for the holiday season. (Don't tell them I am running behind). Let's check it. 

Gifts for the bros...
 Gifts for me...isn't that allowed? 
More gifts for me....these are Kate Spade lookalikes my dears. For a better price point, ya heard? 
 Gifts for the KC lover...
 More gifts for me...again. 
 Of course we have a Kate Spade tribute wall. This is KC, folks. We made Kate Spade.
So here is what I ended up with. Couple gifts for the gals, a flask for a bro in my life and maybe a gift for me.
A gift, ok maybe two, in action for yours truly. 
If you are in KC, I suggest you check HMK. If you reside in the big D (Dallas) or the not so big D (Denver) you have lucked out and can check it out there. Happy last minute shopping, loves!

Flashing Lights, Lights

I mean we all know the song by the talented lyricist Kanye West, Flashing Lights. No? "She don't believe in shooting stars, but she believe in shoes and cars." Ahem. You are speaking my language, Yeezus. So, I may be late to the party here, but I am totally into the neon sign art, y'all. Especially the messy cursive, over the top neon sign art. I am not saying it is always space appropriate, but we can all dream that we live in an apartment in the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Anyway, slap a profound statement on to your wall in neon light form and it is just the unexpected flair that your space has been longing for. Flashing. Lights, lights.

The cutest "ugly" Christmas sweater you ever did see

You guys, I am going against everything I believe in today. Listen. When I am notified that I will  be partaking in an "Ugly Christmas Sweater Party" I shudder. "Ugly" and "Lindsay" just do not go together. I don't do "ugly". So when I have no choice in the matter, I bring it and I bring it hard. This is the cutest "Ugly Christmas" sweater situation you EVER did see. So I have pulled a few combinations to ensure that you are wearing the ugliest Christmas sweater in the absolute cutest way possible. You're welcome. Mix and match these babies. Don't disappoint me. Pattern on pattern, you know how we do.

And you KNOW I have to practice what I preach. Here is my combo that I am sporting this fine morning. I may not win the title for best "ugly Christmas sweater," but at least I will be dressed the cutest...

Oh so you need some accessories to the soiree as well? I got you on this.You need these capes, because we all need capes. Christmas inspired ones especially.
