Happy Holiday’s friends. I’m so excited the holiday season is upon us. It give me a small break from writing to focus on my other love—hosting parties for my family and friends.


Since college I’ve been hosting Friendsgiving. It’s the perfect excuse to get together with friends and share a delicious meal before everyone embarks on their holiday travels to be with family.

This year I’m so excited to part of Amazon’s Influencer team. They’ve given me my own storefront and free rein to share all the amazing deals I’ve found to help turn my Friendsgiving into a fabulous affair.

Happy Halloween

Note from the author: “Hi guys! I just wanted to stop by and wish you all a happy halloween. It’s one of my favorite holidays. As you can see from the photos below I love to get into character. Dressing up is so much fun and this year I got to channel some of the vampires and werewolves I’ve been writing about in my new Crescent City Wolves series. Check out the photos from the vampire murder mystery party I got to attend. I was definitely stealing some fashion tips from one of my favorite vamps, the legendary Katherine Pierce.”

Want to host your own vampire murder mystery party? We did ours through Shot in the Dark. Check out all they have to offer.

Want to recreate my look? All products are available on my Amazon Influencer Beauty Page. 

Need a good spooky book to read? The Casquette Girls by Alys Arden is my favorite haunting read.
