Good morning babes! I am so excited to kick off VLOGMAS with you all here on my blog and my YouTube channel. If you don’t know what VLOGMAS is it’s basically where content creators vlog everyday leading up to Christmas. Since that would be really tough with my schedule, I thought I would try getting 25 videos up over the course of November & December instead. I’m hoping I can do two videos up per week just sharing our Christmas traditions, decorating, baking, behind the scenes of our holiday campaigns, beauty tutorials, holiday outfit ideas etc. I’m kicking off the first video with a fun trip to Target where I picked up most of our decor this year from the Magnolia (Hearth & Hand) collaboration (because I love Chip & Jo so much! Any Fixer Upper fans?). I also found so many other great ornaments, decor and more. Everything I purchased can be found below…

Loved this!!! I have the blanket ladder you bought in a smaller version in my daughters nursery and just love it! I might have to pick up that nativity scene as well, super cute! Also, Neal is so cute with his little commentary at the end. And Lucy! What a doll!

You are cracking me up getting so excited for Target, I’m right there with you girl! Difference is I live walking distance from a Target but I still get just as excited 😊


Awww I love those antlers on Lucy at the end!
I love all the stuff you found in Target, I so wish we had one here. I got super excited when they started shipping to the UK but then realised so much stuff doesn’t ship internationally still 🙁
Can’t wait for my vlogmas videos!

Going to the US next week and I’m definitely going to stop by at Target and grab some of the goodies you just vlogged about! I miss target in Canada so much 😓 How well do the candles work? I’ve been seeing a lot of people buying them!

Subscribed to your channel and commented on your latest Instagram post 🙂 Love your work Stephanie! Your blog and videos are srsly my downtime that I look forward to catching up on at the end of a busy working day! ❤️


Target and vlogmas! It couldn’t get much better. Love this video! I am subscribe to both Instagram (Khanh Cruz) and YouTube (treschic4). Can’t wait for more!


Loving Vlogmas! I especially love that Lucy makes an appearance in almost every video lately! She is so cute! For Vlogmas it would be great to see gift ideas under $100.


Oh no! I wrote a comment a couple of days back, but apparently it didn’t upload. So I’m trying again.

I just wanted to say that I absolutely love the fact that you’ve started Vlogmas, and already in November! Woo!! Christmas can’t start soon enough!

As for the giveaway, it’s such a sweet gift of you and I would love to participate. I’m not sure if it’s possible for international followers to participate, but I’d love to take a chance. I’ve done step 1 & 2 (Instagram Cariannw, YouTube Carian Wientjens).

Thank you and have a lovely day. <3

Big hug from the Netherlands,

OMG where is your mirror from!? The one you’re hanging your wreath on?? I’m obsessed and just got a new place that this mirror would be perfect for!
