Weekend Recap

As we inch closer and closer to the holidays, I feel myself getting cheerier and cheerier (this excludes Mondays, of course…not much that can make me cheery on a Monday). I honestly don’t know what it is about this time of year that just makes people warmer, more patient, and all around friendlier…maybe it’s the twinkly lights, the fireplaces, the spirit of giving…. I’m not too sure. Be what it may, I welcome the cheer, mostly by doing lots of holiday-ish things, i.e. Christmas shopping (aka shopping with an adjective in front of it…which makes it more acceptable), baking cookies, cuddling up with a soft blanket, decorating the tree, listening to nonstop Christmas music, and pretending that I live in an area with seasons. This weekend was just that!

As pictured above, it’s time to get to work, working off those holiday cookies! Check out the Women’s health Weekend Challenge

I’m super into candles this time of year…the sun goes down and I’m living by candlelight. Check out some of these great holiday scents and looks! Pumpkin Souffle, Holiday Pillar Candle, (extra 30% off these candles today!) and Frosted Deco Mercury Hurricanes 

Anyone else have someone in their life who is impossible to shop for? In attempts to not be that person, I let Shannon know that I’m eyeing these bad boys! BTW! Nordies is offering up to 40% off new markdowns in honor of Green Monday!

Loving the holiday sweaters (like this one) at J.Crew! Plus. in honor of Green Monday, take an extra 30% off your purchase!

Is it too early to be shopping for a NYE dress? I think not, when they are 30% off at Forever 21 today! I’m digging this fringe overlay and this little white number.

How do you all celebrate the holidays?!
