Favorites Lately – Christmas Edition

The Nativity Story – Every Christmas Eve we read it before we go to sleep.

Elf on a Shelf – I think this is such a cute idea. I might have to do it when I have kids to make sure they are good!

Elf – still one of the funniest movies ever.

Christmas shopping! We all know how much I love shopping in general, but I love the smells and wrappings. I like coming home and going shopping with my family. And I really like finding presents for other people.

The Holiday – I love this movie too. I love Christmas movies and I love the people in this. I would probably watch this when it’s not Christmas.

I didn’t get to see the lights this year, but I love the lights at the temple. So pretty.

Christmas Vacation – hilarious!

Christmas Nails – I just did mine in the glitter overcoat from Sephora, but I love the candy cane nails below as well. I need to get a steadier hand though.

The Nutcracker Ballet – I miss this so much! I danced in it every year growing up, and am still in love with it. My favorite ballet.

It’s a Wonderful Life – my family also watches this every Christmas Eve.

Ok…so I admit…I love this song…who doesn’t love to blast this and jump around on the couch or their bed while doing so?

5. I absolutely love this clutch…now where to find it? That’s the one thing I don’t like about pinterest…I don’t know where to get the things I find on there!

6. Correspondence Necklace from BHLDN. So cute. It even opens and has a little note in there.

Favorites Lately – Mid December

1. J.Crew Invitation Clutch – It’s the perfect size to use as a clutch or a purse. I love this print.

2. Photo Booth Wall. I think I’m going to have to do this in my house.

3. No idea who makes this, but it is gorgeous. I love vintage looking wedding dresses. Found on pinterest.

4. I agree.

5. I usually don’t like this style of boots, but I kind of want to get these Sorels this year. They’re cute, but actually practical…haha

6. Kourtney and Kim Take New York…I know I know…but it’s my guilty pleasure. I swear Kourtney gets funnier every year. Khloe visited last week and she cracks me up sooo much too. Kim is crazy. I miss Kourtney and Khloe take Miami.

7. Robin Piccone Swim Suit at Nordstorm. I really like this…like a lot.

8. I have kind of been obsessing over this song since the Victoria Secret Fashion show too. I really like the song, but this video is weird lol. But it’s little Jeny from Gossip Girl. This is apparently why she isn’t on the show anymore.

Favorites Lately – Early December

Very true.

I wish I could find cute ways to do my hair. I love this because it looks cute for dressing up or down. Messy buns are my favorite.

Infinity Ring. No idea where to find this, but I’m going to start searching. I found it on pinterest. I love the simplicity.

Love this smell…go try it out.

Every year I like to get Christmas PJs…I just got this shirt/dress top from Victoria Secret’s pink collection. They make the cutest stuff. Now I want to get the thermals below to go with it.

The ‘Real Hoot Canister’ from Anthropologie. Pretty sure this is the perfect gift. It’s so cute. I’m going to get one for me, my mom, and Jake’s mom. I’m obsessed.

Found this dress on pinterest also…gorgeous.

I want this necklace. Kris Nations State Pendant Necklace at Nordstroms.

New Brunswick Sweater at Anthropologie. The perfect sweater for winter.

A little bit obsessed with this song…especially after the Victoria Secret Fashion show…I’ve been getting my gansta on 🙂

Favorites Lately – End of November

1. DIY Christmas Ornament Wreaths…I want to make one of these. You can make any color you want, as full as you want, etc…I think they’re so fun!
I wonder how many ornaments I would break in the process…

I love the ribbon, textures, and color of this one.

2. I’m pretty sure that I NEED this cuff by Stella & Dot. I think it speaks for itself. So cute. I just found this website out of Marie Claire. Found here

3. I really like this quote. I feel like deep down that’s all anybody wants.
– Shana Abe

4. I love these Seven for All Mankind Pumps. I think the colors are great. I want them, but they don’t exactly seem like winter shoes…hmmm, probably won’t stop me.

5. I need to decide which color I want this Banana Republic Clutch in. It’s the perfect size and super sparkly in person. They have it in this gold color, black, silver, and red. Great for the holidays.

6. I’m obsessed with Katy Perry right now. How could you not be? She just won an award for being the first person to have 5 number 1 hits off of one album. Which one of is this song….The One That Got Away. I, however, LOVE this acoustic version, similar to the one she performed at the AMAs. (I love both versions, but this one is awwwwesome). I need to find it somewhere to download.

Favorites Lately – Late November

1. I want to learn how to make an upholstered headboard…or at least find an affordable one so I don’t have to learn how to make one.

2. I love this Northface Jacket. You can remove the hood. They have it in Alpine White too…now just to decide which color…

3. The Chronicle Men’s Watch…just got it for Jake. I love it.

4. Oliver Sequin Jacket from Nordstrom. Such a fun jacket for holiday parties.

5. I saw this on pinterest and have no idea where it is from or who makes it but it is gorgeous. Wish I knew.

6. HAHA…so true.

7. Christina Kober small initial necklace on etsy. I want this.

8. I love this song. Joshua Radin – Here We Go (acoustic session). The regular one is amazing too.

Favorites Lately – Early November

1. Hot Chai Tea from Nordstrom Cafe…so tasty. I might have to get it everyday.

2. I love the number of mirrors on this wall. I would love to do something like this in a room.

3. I want to learn how to make this. You’re supposed to make it out of pages from an old book. But I think it would be cute to make a couple and then spray paint them different colors depending on what month/holiday you want to hang it up for. Gold would be cute.

4. Fun party shoes!

5. I like this little polka-dot ipad case from J.Crew…now just to get my ipad…

6. Also from j.crew…now to just get my iphone…yeah I still don’t have one. Geez, I have sprint and they just barely got them ok!

7. I really want to get some of these charms from Anthropologie. I want the K and a 3.

8. I want this outfit.

I need to learn how to do this with my make-up.


I want to make one of these for my room.


I like this quote.


I love this ring, but I don’t know where to find it! I saw it on pinterest, but it didn’t have a link to where I can get it. I bet it’s on etsy or something.
