January’s Most Popular on Hat On The Map

We are back for another round-up of the top 10 pieces from the previous month. I love these end of month round ups because it is an opportunity to look back at the items that you all loved. January’s most popular was mainly amazon finds. Which is no surprise, everyone loves a good Amazon fashion find. I love to share attainable pieces that I find on Amazon Prime.

These monthly round-ups are so fun for me. It’s a great opportunity for me to look at the previous month and dissect what items you loved and which items you loved a whole lot less. I love to review the previous month’s data for trending items, categories, and retailers. This also helps me plan out the next month’s data. Based on January’s most popular expect to see a whole lot of Amazon fashion finds in February.

To shop any of these items, click on the image or the link and it will take you directly to the site. You can also find all of the links here or on the liketoknow.it app!

If you want to know more information about behind the scenes of blogging scroll to the bottom, I go into a bit of detail on the behind the scenes of my little blogging business. In 2020, I would like to be as transparent as possible and that includes sharing more behind the scenes of the business side of blogging.

How I determine my top 10….

I am a part of an affiliate program called rewardStyle, most of you know rewardStyle by its customer-facing platform, Liketoknow.it. This is a very popular affiliate program in the world of fashion bloggers. Any affiliate links that you click on my blog or Instagram, rewardStyle tracks for me. This also means that if you click on one of my links and purchase that item, I will make a VERY small commission.

As a RewardStyle member, I have access to almost all analytics. This means I can track what items are most clicked on and purchased. I cannot see who clicked on each link or any additional items might have been purchased in that transaction. For example, if you click on the link for my favorite foundation and then purchase additional makeup, I will only be able to see that a purchase was made and that the foundation link is what took you to the retailer’s site. Does this make sense?

All of that is to say, shopping through my links does not cost you anything additional (the item is the same price), the retailer will just pay me a small commission since I am the one that referred you.

I am so appreciative when you choose to click and shop through my links, whether that be on Instagram or my blog. I work hard to be a great resource for you to find cute, affordable fashion, and hopefully, by sharing my favorite things, I make your life a bit easier.

Shopping through my links can be an extra step for you, but please know it makes all the difference to me. It is how I can continue sharing great deals, try on sessions, and everything else. Please know I am so thankful when you choose to shop through my links and give me credit for helping you score a great find!

Date Night in Palm Springs + Date Night Outfit Ideas

Palm Springs is every Southern Californian’s favorite weekend getaway. Palm Springs is beautiful, the weather is perfect, every hotel is insta worthy and the dining options are perfection. While the greater Palm Springs area may not be known for a specific type of food, it is known for serving some of the best food in Southern California.

My husband and I recently booked a reservation online, drove the 10 miles down the 111 from Palm Springs to Indian Wells and enjoyed a perfect date night. My idea of a perfect date night is a delicious meal and cocktail in a beautiful setting. And we found just that at Vue Grille and Bar on The Indian Wells Golf Resort.

Date Night in Palm Springs

VUE Grille and Bar is newly redesigned and is a must-visit in the Coachella Valley. The food is amazing, delicious cocktails, and the most extensive whiskey list I have ever seen (THEY HAVE PAPPY VAN WINKLE ON THEIR MENU!). On top of an amazing food and drink selection, it sits on the beautiful Indian Wells Golf Resort that is nestled right next to the San Jacinto mountains. We were able to feast on a delicious dinner and enjoy the fantastic views.

The menu at VUE is loaded with meals you would not expect to find in the desert, like an ahi tuna with mango and avocado and bacon-wrapped scallops with habanero chutney! When we dined at VUE, I ordered the Filet Oscar (steak and lobster YUM!) and my husband ordered the Seafood Paella, also yum!

Dessert in Palm Springs
Brownie Tower at Vue Grille & Bar

With our dinner, I ordered a glass of Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc, my favorite New Zealand wine. My husband ordered the New Fashioned, VUE’s fun take on the very famous Old Fashioned. After dinner, we ordered the brownie tower and holy moly were my tastebuds happy about that decision!!! Brownies, caramel, ice cream, and raspberries, YES!!

With the VERY busy holiday season upon us, it was so nice to take a break from all of our obligations and enjoy a perfect date night. And I couldn’t have asked for better service or a more delicious meal than what we received at VUE. VUE Grille and Bar is the perfect destination for your next date night in Palm Springs. Plan you visit today!

Amazon Fashion Finds: Thanksgiving Outfit Inspo

When it comes to Thanksgiving figuring out what to wear can be a bit tricky. You want to wear an outfit that is cute and weather appropriate but also something that you are still comfortable in after your third slice of pie. My favorite kind of Thanksgiving outfit is an oversized sweater and a pair of super comfortable jeans. I love to spend Thanksgiving in the kitchen so I need an outfit that I can comfortably wear all day long.

Fashion blogger amazon

Around this time of year, we all get so busy preparing for the holidays that there is no time left to head to the mall to buy a cute Thanksgiving outfit. Nobody needs the added stress of I have nothing to wear for Thanksgiving, right? Thank god for Amazon prime! I searched all through amazon to find the cute, comfortable and affordable pieces all available on amazon prime. You do not need to leave your house or even put on pants to get the best Thanksgiving outfit.

This Thanksgiving outfit round up is inspired by my favorite fall amazon finds. I paired my November amazon finds with a few must-have fall pieces in my closet and created cute and very comfortable Thanksgiving outfits.

What does your Thanksgiving holiday look like? Will you be traveling somewhere far or spending the day at home with friends and family? Let me know in the comments!My husband is obsessed with Thanksgiving. He is one of those people that could eat Thanksgiving leftovers for 12 days after the holiday and still enjoy the meal. In 2017, we spent Thanksgiving in New Zealand and my husband was so sad to miss the traditional holiday meal. I am less of a turkey person and more excited about all the delicious appetizers. None the less, I love the holiday. I am so excited to spend Thanksgiving in my childhood home with my family.
