DIY: Head Wrap

Warm weather is on its way… I promise! I’m dreaming of another warm beach vacation now. As you remember I recently took the NYE trip of a lifetime, a Carnival cruise down to sunny Mexico. I mentioned in my “Guide To Packing” video the importance of packing a scarf. It’s so versatile. You can use it as a sarong, a dress or my personal favorite… a head wrap! I wear them all the time when I’m trying to add a little fabulous to my outfit. Check out this easy how-to video and you’ll be full glam in three easy steps!

About That Time I Was On The Today Show…

 

IMG_4931So the Today Show happened today… yea that Today Show!!!!! Honestly I can’t even say if making an appearance on the Today Show is even on my bucket list because it’s just so beyond anything I could have ever imagined. I was honored when the show asked me to come on and represent YouTube creators as part of their Valentine’s themed What’s Clickin’ segment. Obviously, yes!!!! I made my way down to Rockefeller Plaza and had a grand time getting crafty with Natalie, Tamron, Willie and of course my weather man hero, Al Roker! (Seriously Al!!!!!!!!)

DIY: No Sew Blanket Cape

Miss Kris DIY WrapI had to go deep into the #MissKrisTV YouTube archives for this project. As many of us are preparing for the big shift from Winter to Spring (March 20th), we’re preparing our wardrobes and pulling back out those lighter weight outerwear options. A cozy wrap is one of my favorites! It’s perfect for a LA Winter …or a sunny Spring day in some other parts of the country.

Last year I made a fun, no sew blanket Cape video using a different fabric. This season I updated it with a fab houndstooth print I found at my local fabric store. I’m in to all thinks print and black and white right now! Click HERE to watch the video. Hopefully you’re inspired to make one for yourself this year. It’s the perfect way to stay warm and cozy.

Style: Winter White

Miss Kris Winter White OOTD 1Winter white! Now I have to admit that even though I avoid the cold weather at all cost, I do enjoy seeing the Instapics of the freshly fallen white snow that my friends back East post. I don’t envy the 30 degree temps, but the snow sure is pretty. The recent snowfall has inspired one of my favorite looks. Winter whites plus a faux fur plus a fedora is giving me a 70s cold weather vibe that I can totally get behind. What do you think? How do you feel about the Winter white trend?

The Fabulous Adventures Of Miss Kris: Aboard A Fun Ship To Mexico

Carnival + Miss Kris 1

I’m labeling 2015 the year of Miss Kris’ fabulous adventures! I’ve challenged myself to do more exploring in the new year. So when presented the opportunity from Carnival Cruise Lines to spend my New Year’s Eve aboard one of their fabulous ships, how could I say no?! NYE aboard a ship? In the middle of the ocean? What an exciting way to ring in the year of adventure!

A few girlfriends and I boarded the ship on a Monday afternoon, setting sail for Mexico. After a fun day at sea we finally arrived at the first of two ports, Progresso.  We spent a few hours exploring the Mayan ruins and shopping. We later returned to the ship for a night of colorful New Year’s Eve activities. A delicious dinner and lots of dancing, all culminated in a colorful balloon drop at midnight that you’ve just got to see (watch here). My NYE was a blast!

After the most magical of evenings aboard the ship, we docked in Cozumel. Our excursion that day was to a private house with our own little private beache the most perfect and peaceful way to spend the first day of the new year.
