My Favorite 2013 Christmas Cards

December 17, 2013 § Leave a comment

Nothing quite says “spreading holiday cheer” like sending a hand written Christmas card to your loved ones. Writing letters and cards, for some, is a tradition of the past. I still treasure writing letters and sending beautifully printed cards to those I care about and want to make sure they feel my love from a distance. I’ve spent countless hours hunting for the perfect Christmas cards for each of my special recipients – some beautiful, some touching, and some just a little tongue and cheek.

Stocking Stuffer Gift Guide – fo da ladies

November 22, 2013 § 4 Comments

It may seem a bit early for Christmas shopping, but I personally like to get my shopping done before usual because I love giving that perfect gift. With a mostly female family, I absolutely love getting those little feminine gifts with a pop of originality. Here are my top favorite stocking stuffer ideas for the 2013 holidays.

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10

1. Capri Blu Jar CandleAnthropologie $28. If you’ve ever smelled this candle, you understand why I put it numero uno on my list.
2.Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15Sephora $22.50. I recently discovered this gem and I love it! Sheer Petal is the perfect color and the balm is ultra moisturizing.
3. BAGGU Medium Leather Zip PouchUrban Outfitters $40. This little pouch comes in six gorgeous colors and is a great size for all a girl’s little carry-alongs.
4. Botticino Marble CoastersAnthropologie $40. There are multiple sets with different adorable patterns. I chose these ones because who wouldn’t love to have some Scotties & plaid on their coffee table?
5. TARTE Pure Maracuja Oil miniSephora $17. I cannot express how much I LOVE this oil. In the short 2 months that I’ve applied it at nighttime before bed, I have noticed my skin is much smoother and clearer.
6. Mini Etched Enamel Bangle – JCrew $35 (25% off 2 or more until 11/24!). The simplicity of this bangle makes it one of my gifting favorites this season.
7. Flannel PJ PantJCrew Factory $25.50. My family has a Christmas jammies tradition and these are just right. Love me some navy.
8. Butter London Nail LacquerSephora $15. Gorgeous nail polish. Can’t go wrong with this one.
9. Shina Stud Earrings in “ivory pearl”Kendra Scott $29.97. Simple and beautiful. I love the minimalist beauty of ivory pearl.
10. Champagne Bottle Coin PurseKate Spade $68. I know, I know its a bit expensive, but I’ve saved the best for last. Champs is my favorite drink and the new Kate Spade line is perfection.

Whether shopping for your sister, best girlfriend, mother, or lover these are some great hand picked items to stuff their stockings!

Life Lately

Here’s a quick visual post of whats been up with me lately…

Halloween is officially over. Now, it is officially Christmas in my world.

I can’t stop lighting fall candles. #alldayerrdayoc (760) Animated Gif on Giphy

With December quickly approaching, I’m relieved my first semester of grad school is almost over

But, then relief went out the window when… my car got broken into and my sheeeyit stolen

And I got super stressed when I had to deal with insurance and banks to get valuables refunded

So I handled the situation like a mature adult

Then, I remembered I was going to see DRAKE in concert in just a mere few days!

Got happy again. So I planned my outfit accordingly

Got sufficiently tipsy with my girlfriends. Majorly fangirled over Drake when we got to the concert

Then, spent the rest of the night screaming rap lyrics and dancing embarrassingly

Spent the rest of my week working, but hey! TGIF

Lastly, MY BOO COMES INTO TOWN TO VISIT TONIGHT. (one month of being apart is way too long, yall).

excited child

In my mind when he walks in, I’ll be all
