end of year update, weekend sales, and more!

With Christmas being ONE WEEK AWAY, I wanted to take the time to chat a little bit! I feel like I’ve been overwhelmed with creating gift guides and sticking to holiday schedules!


I’ve actually had so much fun creating these gift guides for you (and for myself). In the past, they weren’t really my thing, but I’m so happy you all have been enjoying them! And I hope your loved ones enjoy any of the gifts you got from these gift guides! PS: This one was my favorite!


Now that I’m finished with gift guides for the season, I wanted to update you on some great sales happening RIGHT NOW! Trust me, you deserve a little shopping spree after all of the holiday shopping you’ve done!

Every year the last few years, my sister, mom, and I have gone to my grandma’s house in Queens to make sauce and meatballs for Christmas. My grandma (who is 93!!!) makes some of THE BEST sauce and meatballs I’ve ever tasted, so she’s been trying to show me and my sister how to make them just like she does!


One of the main reasons why I started blogging was to document my personal style while I was in college. Over the last four years, Pink Champagne Problems has become SO much more than that. Especially in 2016. So coming up this week, I’ll be recapping some of my favorite posts from the year with you, along with a reader survey that I’d LOVE for you to take – so be on the look out for that! Also, this look may or may not be one of them – see the original post here.Outfit
