Mother’s Day… It’s a day we can all celebrate the amazing mothers in our lives! I say the word mother’s because they are so many women who have impacted my life and taught me so much! My mother is my best friend, biggest cheerleader and supporter. I wouldn’t be where I am today if she had not sacrificed her life to have me and my siblings. She taught me so much as a child about life and manners, things that made me who I am today and I will be forever grateful! There have been countless women in my life who have been like mothers to me and today I want to say “Thank You” to all the amazing women in the world who each and every day support and nurture! I am a firm believer you don’t have to be a biological mother to be a mother.
This year is extra special because my sister-in-law and my best friend are both mother’s for the first time and I am so excited for them! I have been able to see and feel feelings I never knew I could for another human being with! Mother’s Day is a day that we all need to remember those amazing women that have made us who we are today! I have been searching the Internet for some amazing gifts, many Under $100 that will hopefully be perfect for those women in your life! I have made a shoppable boutique for you all below as well as a Mother’ Day Tab on the blog that I will be updating this week! I hope you all find something you love! If you are a mother or a mother figure to someone, HAPPY EARLY MOTHERS DAY!

Today’s post is different than most of my posts because today I am going to be super open and vulnerable with you guys! A year and a half ago if you had told me I would start a blog and it would remotely go anywhere I would have looked at you with a perplexed look on my face. Two years ago my sister begged and begged me to start a blog because I was getting makeup and clothes questions on my Instagram weekly! I really didn’t think that people would care what products I loved or brands I had found so for over 6 months when the idea would spark I would quickly get rid of it and talk myself out of it! If I can stop right here and take a few seconds to tell each and every one of you that if there is something you have always wanted to do and are just too scared of how others will perceive you, what they will say or do and this keeps you from reaching for the stars and trusting in yourself and God, quit talking yourself out of it and TAKE A LEAP OF FAITH TO FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS! In my opinion 90% off of the time WE as women are our own worst critics! I sit back and listen to myself and friends on the daily talk about the things that we want to change about ourselves, improve or wish we didn’t have, but we are ALL AMAZING and capable of so much more than we give ourselves credit for! We are made in the image of Jesus Christ and we are perfect to HIM! YOU ARE AMAZING and CAPABLE of ANYTHING YOU WANT/DREAM/DESIRE!
I have honestly had every emotion possible with Make Today a Hollyday. I started it not knowing what to do, when to do it and who my audience would be or even if I would have one. Over the past year and a half I have been overwhelmed, upset, mad and completely overjoyed sometimes all of these emotions all in one day (but really!). I have had people question what I did, but on the flop side I have met the absolute MOST SUPPORTIVE WOMEN EVER whose friendships would not have been possible without this endeavor! I wanted to share this because sometimes with social media all of our lives can look picture perfect and I can tell you that with that one “Instagram-worthy” shot you see, there were probably 10 others that didn’t quite make the cut! I think social media is a double edged sword! It is first and foremost a great way to stay connected with friends/family, find great deals, share special moments and in my case products! On the other edge of that sword it is the largest comparison tool there is! I don’t know statistics on this, but I would imagine that depression rates have spiked since social media has started. On those days when you are at a low point or you question your direction in life and begin scrolling through social media and see the “highlight” reels of friends or often complete strangers where life seems to be nothing short of “put-together” or “perfect” this can only magnify those feelings of inadequacy which can plague us all. We are all more than our social media feeds and aesthetics and we need to remember this DAILY! [Read more…]
Happy Tuesday everyone! This week I have wedding on the brain because my brother is GETTING MARRIED this Saturday and I can’t wait to have a new sister-in-law! I am one of four children and each of my siblings has gotten married except for my older brother, until now, and I can’t wait to celebrate him! With Easter now officially over guess what that means?!?!? BRING OUT THE WHITE CLOTHES!!! I am not one that follows the white after Easter rule, however, I usually don’t wear all white until I get a tan so that usually means after Easter 🙂 Today I have gone through some of my all time favorite retailers and made a boutique for you guys of ALL WHITE DRESSES, hope you enjoy and let me know your favorites!

Happy Easter everyone! Today is a special day because it is the day that I celebrate the resurrection of my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ! As a Christian this is the biggest holiday in my faith because it marks the perfect act of true Love by my Lord & Savior Jesus Christ that he would lay down His life for me so that I could have life everlasting life with Him in Heaven! Jesus Christ is the reason for the season and I am so grateful, undeserving and blessed! This is a FREE Gift that anyone can have and I would be more than happy to tell you how if you are curious 🙂

Happy Happy Thursday! Today ya’ll the SHOPBOP semi-annual sale is still going strong and there are still some amazing items still in stock! This sale only happens twice a year and sort of like the Nordstrom Semi-Annual Sale, it is one where high end designers and new arrrivals are up to 25% OFF TEMPORARILY with Code: EVENT17! The best part about this sale is it let you amp up that summer wardrobe at a fraction of the cost and after the sale it is FULL PRICE again! If you missed yesterday’s blog post, head back and check out my picks from yesterday! I have spent this morning adding items below that are pretty much still in stock in most sizes! I ended up getting this Mara Hoffman Tie-Front Dress because the colors are INCREDIBLE! I also already purchased these adorable Loeffler Randall Clem pom pom sandals and if you are looking for a comfortable sandal to take you through Spring & Summer, this one is it! It is pricier, but like anything the leather is so comfy and the poms have so much detail that they MAKE an outfit! I also got some INCREDIBLE Valentino dupes, but they are only available in one size now, but they also come in black and a heel! Everything at Shopbop is amazing so check out my shoppable boutique below and if you see something you like, pull the trigger because everything is GOING FAST!
